This review is from: The Terry Pratchett Collection (Hogfather, Colour of Magic, Going Postal) [DVD] (DVD)
I've been a fan of Terry Pratchett's books for the last couple of decades. When I heard that they were to be turned into films, I was in turn worried and delighted. Worried that the atmosphere of the books couldn't be recreated so we would see a meaningless series of scenes, but once I had seen the films, delighted that they had managed to achieve a superb visualisation of the stories.

The locations and sets are beautifully crafted and do an excellent job of creating the environments of the Discworld. The actors playing the various characters do a superb job of portrayal, and I found them all very believable. They have had to modify the stories slightly to make the films, but this has been done in a way that doesn't detract from the main plot; and I don't feel that anything is lost by it.

In all, a great collection of the current films; I do hope that they will consider doing more.
