As for the movies themselves having the four films on blu-ray is just a bonus, obviously these have been reviewed to death before and if you are reading this you all ready know how good the franchise was. The picture quality is noticably better than dvd, the sound is average but who really cares about that?
Well worth buying, 5 stars.
You get all four films on Blu-ray including Vegas Vacation for the first time on high def.
All are in 1080P 16x9 1.85:1 ratio.
All have have DTS HD MA soundtracks.
National Lampoons Vacation and European Vacation are 1.0 and run for 98 mins and 94 mins respectively.
Christmas Vacation is in 2.0 and runs for 97 mins.
Vegas Vacation is in 5.1 and runs for 94 mins.
Subtitles include English,French and Spanish plus more.
All have Audio Commentaries except Vegas Vacation which only has a trailer.
The first film also has an introduction,a trailer and an 85 minute documentary.
Film two just has an audio commentary by Chevy Chase.
The PQ on all four are a step up from DVD and are worthy of being on Blu-ray but wouldn't score more than 3.0 out of 5.0 with the exception of Vegas which is the best quality and gets 3.5-4.0 IMO which isn't a great surprise as it's the latest one.
The AQ gets the job done focusing on voices and music mainly and is clear with no hiss etc.
This UK box set is great value for money and finally we have all four together for the first time on Blu-ray unlike the US which has them for sale separately.
All the films come in two standard Blu-ray Amaray cases. Two films are in one and two in the other. Both cases are housed in a cardboard slip case. Four discs altogether. (Each film has its own disc)
If you like these films this is the best version to own.
1) Vacation has an 85 minute documentary - worth a watch but for some reason has lots of interview clips repeated. Great to see so much of the cast interviewed but Randy Quaid is absent.
2) Christmas Vacation is uncut, unlike previous DVD releases.
I re-watched three of the films and checked the picture quality on Christmas Vacation (didn't feel like watching it in August!) and was so disappointed in them - I had to double check they weren't DVDs in a Blu Ray case!
As for the films:
Vacation is a classic, I absolutely love it.
European Vacation is painful viewing. This is only the second I have ever seen it, and it is even worse than I remember. Annoying kids, ugly visuals and a nasty tone. It's also a completely laugh free experience. It also has a VERY dull audio commentary by Chevy Chase.
Christmas Vacation - My favourite Christmas film, watched at least twice every December
Vegas Vacation - MUCH funnier than European Vacation, and good fun in that rubbish but brilliant 90's way (e.g. Tommy Boy, Bill Madison, Night At The Roxbury)
Overall, its essential if you're a fan and you don't have these films on DVD, and worth £12 for the new bonus material if your upgrading from DVD.
Blu-Ray picture quality is very good considering the age of the films. Sound quality is clear through my TV speakers. I managed to get this set for £10 which I thought was pretty good value for money.
The set is excellent value for money.
The quality isn't mind-blowing but it's certainly a step up from the DVDs.
The extras aren't bad at all for a set of catalogue titles, especially the 1st one with a 90-minute making-of documentary.
For me European Vacation is the weakest of the four, but it is still a good laugh.
The movies (over the year's) have not really dated or lost their charm.
Everyone has/know's a Clark Griswold.

Great classic films. Never looked better on bluray.
Be warned though, they are the to edits contained here, not the original cuts in the two original vacation movies anyway. Read more
