5.0 out of 5 stars Big Women, Big Appetites, Big Trouble in a Big, Beautiful Box Set!
Worth every penny for fans. Includes interviews with producer, writer, sometime-actor, cameraman, director Russ Meyer himself and many of his actresses. Also, a few director's commentaries on the films which allow you the unique opportunity to watch them "with" Russ Meyer.

Worth every penny for fans. Includes interviews with producer, writer, sometime-actor, cameraman, director Russ Meyer himself and many of his actresses. Also, a few director's commentaries on the films which allow you the unique opportunity to watch them "with" Russ Meyer.

Is it art or is it porn? Having now seen every available Russ Meyer movie and read every book related to him, I can confidently say that his work is not porn. These are merely beautifully filmed and edited adult dramas and comedies driven by the theme of sex. Lots and lots of gorgeous big-bosomed women in various states of undress lusted after by lots and lots of incredibly stupid, determined, square-jawed men.

Every Meyer film is an exaggerated take on life, and that's the point of it. Or to put it even more simply, it's fun. Captivating, hilarious, baffling, unforgettable, ESSENTIAL fun.

Breast in Peace, Russ.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cinema history, soft-core division, 16 April 2009
This review is from: Russ Meyer Collection [DVD] (DVD)
Russ Meyer was a pioneer of U.S. cinema, in his own twisted way. Not only did he share the typical American male's fascination with breasts, especially big ones, he shared his fascination with other American males by putting the big breasts on the big screen. In 1959, just 4 years after the first issue of Playboy, he released his first film, The Immoral Mr. Teas. Over the next two decades he directed 17 more of them. Their plots were barely strong enough to support the weight of the mammaries on display, but nobody cared. The bright colors and the beautiful, bare women earned him scorn and reverence from the expected sources.

This collection has all 18 Meyer films, in very nice DVD transfers, at a very reasonable price. It's a dream come true, since in the U.S. individual copies of his movies sell for thirty dollars and up, when you can even get them. Being American, I had to buy a second DVD player, that plays all regions and PAL format, to be able to watch the films in this set (and other foreign DVDs), but it was worth it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great set. All region 0 except for the new disc., 14 May 2012

Russ Meyer is definitely a unique film maker and there's usually no middle ground. You are a fan or your not and if you are reading this you are most likely a fan. This set is similar to the earlier Meyer one except it's stream-lined down package wise. It's the same DVDs and extras as before but they've added a new movie Europe in the Raw and an incredible 100 page book. If you don't have this set don't even think about it just buy. Amazing set and incredible price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unsung genius of the World of Cinema, 17 Dec 2006

This review is from: Russ Meyer Collection [DVD] (DVD)
This fabulous, and near-exhaustive set of 18 films by the cinematic genius who was Russ Meyer, is a must-own. A lot of people label him as "the guy who makes films with women who have enormous boobs". Well, that certainly is true! But for anyone prepared to sit down and actually watch one of his films, the rewards are immense. Enjoy the comic-porn moments and then also think about how complex his lead characters are, how innovative his editing was and how focused his vision as a film-maker was. I have had Faster Pussycat... Kill! Kill! in my collection for a few years, but it's only been since watching other examples of his work that I have fully realised his impact on so many other film directors that are also held under great esteem. One example: having watched Supervixens from start to finish, it is easy to see how the narrative structure inspired David Lynch movies such as Lost Highway and Mulholland Drive. The only film lacking here in this set is Beyond The Valley Of The Dolls which is his absolute masterpiece but, hey, who's complaining?!

Terrific box set, not his entire works but fantastic all the same. Great that the big-hitters like vixen, faster pussycat... etc were all there. I'm in London UK and all my discs worked perfectly. I too purchased my set for under 20 pounds, what absolute value. Well done to 'Zoverstocks' and Amazon. You'll always get a bargain here. Good effort.

3.0 out of 5 stars Wrong aspect ratio and no subtitles., 25 July 2013

This is a product review of the Russ Meyer Collection released by Arrow Films. Russ Meyer Collection [19 Uplifting Classics + Russ Meyer Book] [DVD]

This set contains a collection of Russ Meyer movies that Russ Meyer fans will all know. The DVDs are in a book-like case that although easy to access and remove I am a little unsure how it will stand up to long term wear and tear. On the positive side the compact form does make for lower shipping costs and shelf storage as opposed to individual jewel cases. The movies were all pretty good transfers and the audio was good. All movies are presented in 1.33:1 aspect ratio except for Black Snake which is presented in 2.35:1 and this is where this set loses a star. Finders Keepers, Lovers Weepers! (1968) Vixen! (1968) Supervixens (1975) Up! (1976)
and Beneath the Valley of the Ultra-Vixens (1979) were all shot and screened in 1.85:1 yet have been presented in full frame. This is not a case of shooting in 1.37:1 and soft matting for some of the actors would have 1/3 of their face missing if soft matting took place. It is simply not presenting the movies as theatrically intended. I also deducted a half star for not including subtitles although you could argue that with all the fine ladies shown in Meyer's movies who needs audio at all! There are some nice extras that complete this set and the price is not too shabby.

I give this set 3.5 stars but rounding down makes it 3.

Russ Meyer, what can be said other then I rather enjoy his taste in girls he showcased and if you haven't seen any this is as good a place as any to start.
