4.0 out of 5 stars Here are the full details
Some of the negative reviews for this set accuse it of being in some way dodgy or pirated. That's obviously stupid - it's a totally legitimate Warner Bros. box set and wouldn't be available on Amazon if it was some sort of bootleg. But it IS quite bargain basement, so here are the actual details of the editions of the films included.

3.0 out of 5 stars Shiver me timbers!
This product appears to be a pirate version which is very surprising as it is sold direct by Amazon. It is a boxset containing two DVD cases. The first DVD case contains 'Once upon a time in America' which is split over two discs and has an "Intermission" as if it is a copy of a cinema version. In the same box is 'Goodfellas' which is just on a clean DVD (i.e. no printing...

This review is from: Robert De Niro Box Set [DVD] [2011] (DVD)
Some of the negative reviews for this set accuse it of being in some way dodgy or pirated. That's obviously stupid - it's a totally legitimate Warner Bros. box set and wouldn't be available on Amazon if it was some sort of bootleg. But it IS quite bargain basement, so here are the actual details of the editions of the films included.

Once Upon A Time In America [DVD] [1984] is the excellent two-disc edition (I don't think it exists on DVD in any other form). The film, which is four hours long, is divided across both discs (with intermission), and there are good extra features.

Goodfellas [1990] [DVD] is the single-disc version from the very earliest days of DVD. It's a double-sided disc (which is why it isn't labelled!) and you have to turn it over half way through the film. There are no extras. In more recent years a much better two-disc edition has become available (Goodfellas (2 Disc Special Edition) [1990] [DVD]). This isn't that.

Heat [DVD] [1995] and The Mission [1986] [DVD] are the single-disc editions (although you don't have to turn these over). There are two-disc versions available with better extras (Heat (Two-Disc Special Edition) [DVD] (1995) and The Mission - Two Disc Special Edition [DVD]). These are not those.

Four great films; bare bones box-set at a cheap price. You get what you pay for.

The first DVD case contains 'Once upon a time in America' which is split over two discs and has an "Intermission" as if it is a copy of a cinema version. In the same box is 'Goodfellas' which is just on a clean DVD (i.e. no printing on it at all, just silver all over like a blank one) which is also very strange. That said, it is cheap so I would not put anyone off but it is more like something you would get from a market or a Chinese bloke than from Amazon.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing recording, 12 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Robert De Niro Box Set [DVD] [2011] (DVD)
De Niro films are always worth a look and I don,t want to pay more than I have to.
BUT the copy of Goodfellas spoilt it. The screen blanked after 69mins - no warning or comment.
Why a double sided disc for a standard length film?

Hi everyone,
Looks like a pirate disc, but for the money I wouldn't expect something better. The box set is actually nice.
