5.0 out of 5 stars Let's try this again., 2 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Stanley Kubrick: Visionary Filmmaker Collection [Blu-ray] [1962] [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
I took down my first review of this product because there was no book included, which was specified on amazon's description at the time of ordering. I penalised the rating of this product for that reason, which I have since regretted.

For the value it is absolutely unbelievable. Arguably the greatest director of all time (my favourite for sure) with the majority of his best films included, all with the special features and all great transfers.

Lolita:

I'll admit, not my favourite Kubrick film but an enjoyable one nonetheless. Good Transfer

2001/ACO:

These films still look AMAZING! After multiple viewings I still find something new, they still excite and surprise me.

Barry Lyndon

Unfortunately, this underrated gem gets ONE extra which is the original trailer. Very annoying.

As for quality, a film has NEVER looked so good. I'm fairly convinced that Barry Lyndon is the best looking film ever made, and it looks even better in this transfer. Compare it with the trailer and notice how much of an improvement there is. Every frame could be a virtuoso's painting. The film, ultimately about determinism and status will seem boring to those who nothing more than a story. Dig deeper, and there's so much to enjoy.

The Shining/Full Metal Jacket/Eyes Wide Shut:

All films which have taken time for me to really love (in fact i'm only just coming around to loving EWS). All 3 look spectacular and are filled with heaps of extras.

All in all the price is amazing compared to other boxsets.

7 films which have so much detail, so much re-watchability, so much meaning it feels like each film is worth 10. To paraphrase Scorsese: It's okay that Kubrick will no longer make another film, because what we have is enough.
