5.0 out of 5 stars And "The Creature" Swims Out of that Lagoon in 3-D!!!!, 26 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A truly terrific collection of Universal's "monster mash." The restorations for Blu-ray simply look fantastic. And the 3-D presentation of "Creature From the Black Lagoon" is worth the price of the set. Boxing is a bit flimsy, though, but the presentation and annotation is excellent.

4.0 out of 5 stars Vanessa Redgrave IS "Isadora", 26 Dec. 2015

This review is from: Isadora [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
An excellent Blu-ray release of Karel Riez's superb cinematic "bio" of American dance innovator and enigmatic performer Isadora Duncan-- hear realized in a superb, Oscar-nominated (she should have won!) performance by one of the 20th-century's greatest film actresses, Vanessa Redgrave..
The release is only hampered by the use of the "cut" version, which was called (in the U.S. at least) "The Loves of Isadora." Hopefully the full version will be released one day. This is a great start!


The Kid - Charlie Chaplin Blu-ray
The Kid - Charlie Chaplin Blu-ray
Dvd ~ Charlie Chaplin
Price: £9.90

4.0 out of 5 stars Jackie Breaks Windows and Charlie Fixes them in the great partnership called "The Kid.", 26 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Gorgeous Blu-ray transfer of Chaplin's little masterpiece featuring The Tramp and the 5-year-old Jackie Coogan, whose Charlie-inspired performance created the first real "child super-star."
The disc loses a star due to problems with the hard-to-decipher menu on the disc which is, otherwise, fine.

5.0 out of 5 stars "The Girl" Rides Again!!, 26 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Gorgeous Blu-ray release of Puccini's most fascinating opera, the "Spaghetti western" known as "La Fanciulla del West" (The Girl of the Golden West.) Superb performances from Nina Stemme, Jonas Kauffmann and a superior supporting cast in a mostly interesting slightly-updated production. This viewer/listener recommends it highly!

What a wonderful film in its beautiful 3-D version. One of "modern" Disney's best. Terrific for all, especially older kids AND parents!

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply the best thing I've seen in years!, 7 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
What a wonderful set! This Yank acquired a multi-region dvd player in order to obtain it as a blind buy. The new generation of Brit actors steps up to the plate wonderfully!! And it's SOOOOOOO wonderful to hear OUR English Language spoken properly!!


Henry V [Blu-ray]

5.0 out of 5 stars Good presentation of an important film in need of a good restoration., 7 May 2014

This review is from: Henry V [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
Love it anyway!! Good commentary track, not bad picture quality. However, the film needs restoration, particularly in regards the soundtrack (which wasn't so good on the USA Criterion release either).


Hamlet [Blu-ray]

This review is from: Hamlet [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
Excellent picture quality offsets okay sound in a mostly-excellent blu-ray edition of Olivier's Oscar-winner. Of course, performances cannot be topped-- especially Lord Larry and the young "discovery of the day," Jean Simmons as Ophelia.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fine collection, excellent discs, WORST packaging in HISTORY!!!, 7 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The headline says it all. It is impossible to keep the films in their "places" in the awful container. I've slipped them into sleeves and keep them in the box with the rest. The disc quality is excellent on all three films--- "East of Eden" probably technically the best.
