laurel and hardy 21 disc collection box set is dissapointing but also good
on 26 April 2016
I bought this box set and was dissapointed that the films seemed to be reissues of a original edition my proof of this is that i have a few seperate dvds from this box set which has shiny writing for the title , white cases , and also the booklets that give intresting info about the best comedy team that ever lived but this set is a dissapointment .As most will agree the set with the booklets seems to be a long gone edition now we are left with these reissued versions with no info about their films if anyone can tell me about the shiny writting booklets edition i will be happy to know if they are available , also the colorized versions of these films are bad they have scenes cut and are no bonus whatsoever the foreign language editions are ok but no subtitles so thats not really good .For an box set of two great comedians this set should of been great instead this has not got every single film they ever did its basically a mudled up set i have the marx brothers movies which are no problem to get its this that has different editions going for and i can only comlete my set if i know where to get as so many customers on here have hade problems with this let me know as soon as possible.A chump at oxford is a decent feature length film it had many funny scenes in it like the maze scene althought the 2 were older here and its not as good as the others but its a entertaining film , from soup to nuts is a 1928 silent fim that has some good scenes in it but these silents are not as good as their sound films but if you give them a good their still entertaining my favourite is liberty from 1927 its amazing how they did not fall from that construction building and most of their movies have great stunts and effects that still hold up today .The best tning on this is another fine mess from 1930 it has that classic look about it as its an early sound film and one of their most amusing with the birth of hardys thats another fine mess you got me into .
