5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth the money I paid !, 23 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As an American, may I say ... this was a sweet buy. A previous poster hit the nail right on the head when he commented that you get the same blu-ray of Rio Bravo with this set, as the single disc edition currently out-of-print, and wayyyyyy overpriced -- both in the UK and in the U.S. The only complaint I have with this set, is that How the West was Won only comes with the one disc, and does not include the smilebox version, which replicates the Cinerama experience. But alas, what is here is really terrific for the price. Rio Bravo, The Searchers, Pale Rider, How the West was Won, and The Wild Bunch. All of which are the same as the single disc editions. With, of course, the exception of How the West was Won, which only includes the one disc. Still well worth the cash, though. Great buy, very happy to own it.

The Fog [Blu-ray]

3.0 out of 5 stars Good pic and sound upgrade ! But if you want Region 1, wait for the Shout/Scream Factory Release this summer., 18 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Fog [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
I purchased this after the MGM special edition DVD (Region 1,) and before Shout Factory announced their Scream Factory release of the same title, for Region 1 later this year. (Summer, according to their Facebook page.)

I wouldn't really call it a mistake to buy, this has improved pic and sound over the dvd. But there are a couple of anomolistic images where the transfer just cannot quite hold the information in the frame. It doesn't pixelate. It just kind of gets a bit grainy and changes color. Even though the dvd doesn't have quite the definition that this release has, it doesn't do that, so I know it's not the original image.

A good buy for those of you in the UK. Especially as a companion to the Spec. Ed. dvd.

But like I said, if you're in the US and want the ultimate best version available, just be patient. It gets released later this year.

5.0 out of 5 stars All Region Rocks !, 18 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
At the time I ordered this, and possibly still, the only way to get this here in the States, was to order the entire set for around $100 bucks. Not an option I entertained. So when I found this on amazon.co.uk, I was very happy.

All I wanted was the Special Edition dvd with the improved picture and sound afforded by Blu-ray. I got exactly what I wanted.

Very happy buyer.

4.0 out of 5 stars If you're a fan and can find it, go for it !, 18 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
UK release plays on Region 1 Blu-ray players.

The pic and sound are not perfect, but they faithfully reflect an improvement on the Theatrical release prints, which I remember well.

Only extra is an audio commentary with director and producer, but for fans like me, it's nice to have.

5.0 out of 5 stars Packing is different, but it's the same release as Region 1 yet more affordable., 18 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I paid $20 bucks, American. I wanna say in pounds that's around 12.99. The American release is exactly the same, only more expensive. Recommended.

All previous dvd features available here, including a few new to Blu-ray.

Pic and sound incredible.

5.0 out of 5 stars WILL WORK ON REGION A/1 BLU-RAY PLAYER, 18 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
When you put the disc in, it comes up with a message that says this disc will only play in another region, but if you hit the menu button, it goes straight to the menu and you can view the film and all extras.

This is easily one of my fav buys from the UK. The documentary covers this film as well as the sequels, and spans approx. 5 hours. There are other extras as well.

The film is mastered faithfully without any change in presentation. The original soundtrack is included, with all original songs.

The only thing missing is Dan O'Bannon's audio commentary, only available on the US version.

But this is a killer release to own. Very proud to have it.

4.0 out of 5 stars If you like the films, you'll like the set, 18 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
You get exactly what it looks like you get. The individual blu-rays all in one set. Pic and sound the same as previously released. Same for the special features -- which unfortunately, there are few of. But, if you like bad Stallone movies with pizza, this will be your nirvana.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good solid transfers, Video and Sound., 18 Feb 2013

I do with a little more of the supplemental material available when the films were originally released had been included, but at $20 vs. the American price -- this was both a real bargain and a nice set to own.
