The Phantom of the Opera (3 - Disc Dual Format Edi&hellip <b>Blu-ray</b> ~ Lon Chaney
2 of 4 people found the following review helpful
Along with having 2 versions of the film on Blu-ray and DVD, we also get the excellent documentary Lon Chaney: A Thousand Faces on a bonus DVD. This is just a terrific set, for a historically important film.

Most know the classic story of the disfigured Phantom, dwelling in dungeons beneath the Paris Opera House, and his obsession for a woman, unfortunately, betrothed to another. Eventually seducing and kidnapping the poor girl, right under the nose of her beau, it's surely only a matter of time before he is tracked down and made to pay. The poor wretch just wants to be touched. To love and to be loved. This Night at the Opera will never be forgotten.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning Blu-ray Set, 30 Dec 2013
This is simply a no brainer in my opinion. The three Back to the Future films in stunning 1080p Hi Definition and a fortnights worth of extra material for under a tenner!!! Go on, twist my arm, man.

Everybody knows the brilliance of the films. Personally, I think the first two slightly better than the third which, while still a good film, lowers the bar just a little. Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd are both fantastic in all three movies. The effects, while state of the art at the time, are slightly more see through on Blu-ray but I think this all adds to the charm of the movie. Written and directed by Robert Zemeckis, (Who also gave us Roger Rabbit, Romancing the Stone and… Read more
Criterion Collection: Brazil [Blu-ray] [1985] [US &hellip <b>Blu-ray</b> ~ Ian Holm

If, like me, you're a big fan of Terry Gilliams' Brazil then do yourself a favour and avoid the UK Blu ray editions of this magnificent film and pick up the US Criterion version. It is, head and shoulders, the best edition out there at this time.

I like to think of Brazil as Terry Gilliams' take on George Orwells' 1984. Certainly more humorous than the magnificently bleak 1984 it is a definite study of the insanity of bureaucracy and totalitarian states. Boasting incredible production design, beautiful sets, a great cast including De Niro and Ian Holm and a quite wonderful score from Michael Kamen, Brazil is a modern(ish) classic.

While the transfers of the movie are… Read more
