Lovely Lovely Lovely!,
This review is from: Stanley Kubrick: Visionary Filmmaker Collection [Blu-ray]  [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
Am a big fan of Kubrick's films. Truth be told, was feeling a bit hesitant when ordering, since I own most of the movies here in previously remastered versions. So I wasn't expecting a lot of new features from this blu ray set because the old ones are pretty good enough already for me. But anyhow I bought this set when I saw the big drop of its price not long after the set was launched. At less than 30 quid, it's a knockout bargain for me. I mean, what can you really buy out there with that kinda money?
Overall, the quality of the blu rays are superb. Unlike the US version, which has received numerous complaints on its book design disc holder, this box set comes in more traditional packaging, the discs are held firmly, individually in a large plastic box. So no worries for people who fancy to buy this version. You can always buy Dr. Strangelove blu ray separately, do don't bother with the 8 discs or 10 discs dilemma.
I was really glad that they have included new documentary on THE LUCKY MALCOM together with Stanley Kubrick documentary on the last disc. Tested a few of the discs, some picture quality are significantly improved, especially Barry Lyndon, but well, if you like, the older version in my dvd collection was simply not good enough for the latest LCD or LED tv anyway. The major attraction of the set is Space Odyssey 2001 for me. The opening landscape footage never look better for me. And I am glad that I bought this new version though somehow so far I have found no new featuers are added into the blu ray version of the movie. But still, the price beats all imperfections.
BUY IT! YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED!
