Tombstone - The Directors Cut [DVD] [1993]
Tombstone - The Directors Cut [DVD] [1993]
Dvd ~ Kurt Russell

5.0 out of 5 stars A true western adventure classic!, 9 Sept. 2014
A true western classic, and a great film, with a superb cast that brought the life of Wyatt Earp and his family/friends adventures to life. Excellent score, great cinematography and a wonderful, exciting and somewhat historically accurate screenplay. How Val Kilmer didn't even get nominated for a supporting actor Oscar, is beyond me. If only they could manage to bring The Directors Cut (available only on DVD at this time) to blu ray.....I would buy that in a heart beat! But for now this DVD comes Highly Recommended.

3.0 out of 5 stars Could have been so much more!, 26 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a review of the "Ultimate Hunting Trophy" edition that included the awesome predator bust. I'll start with the positive...This bust is fantastic! Anyone who considers themselves a Predator fan needs to have this in their collection...The detail and quality of the piece is great, each one of his dreadlocks is moveable and individual, and the paint apps etc., are VERY good. Sure, this quite expensive, but the quality of this piece, it's not a rip-off trust me.

Now, to the negative...while the bust is not a rip-off, I'll tell you what is...the ACTUAL movie/bluray itself...as some have already stated here, it appears to be a rehash of the ultimate hunter edition..no new revised/upgraded transfer here, sorry to say. While the bit-rate is high, the film suffers from WAY too much DNR....and as for the 3D?? Well, at times it looks quite decent, such as when they attack the guerilla compound...but, as this was an automated 3D conversion, and not given much TLC, it shows throughout..on most scenes it is clear how the computer has roto-scoped out the fore/backgrounds, and what you are left with is a half-assed job where the person in the foreground may be 'in-front' of the background, but they themselves lack any dimension or depth...they all look like cardboard cut-outs..

So, most of you out there may probably already have the Blu Ray.. if you do, then buying this SOLELY thinking the picture has been re-mastered, and better than previous editions will be sorely disappointed...Also, if you want it to experience it in 3D... as an older movie, NOT natively shot in 3D, combined with an AUTOMATED conversion...don't expect AVATAR or TITANIC quality of 3D...you have been warned. :-)

But, I believe the quality of the bust alone, makes this a worthwhile purchase...It sounds strange saying it, but that's how I feel. That's why the 3 stars...as an OVERALL package, the bust gets 4...the film included (due to poor quality) gets 2...so, split the difference and 3 stars. If only FOX could have given this fantastic, action classic the time and care it deserves, and went back to properly master the film, then this could have been the definitive Predator release we've all been hoping for...unfortunately, that's not the case here.

3.0 out of 5 stars Why 4:3 aspect ratio??, 4 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A good set,fun movies picked up at a decent price. However, the ORIGINAL movie starring Brenden Fraser is in a cropped 4:3 aspect ratio..In the modern age of TV screens and DVD/bluray honestly, who has a 4:3 ratio TV anymore?? And made all the more frustrating by the fact that the lesser known George of the Jungle 2 IS in a widescreen format! Get your act together Disney!

5.0 out of 5 stars Here comes the SPIDERMAN!!.., 27 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Wow, this takes me back! A great set that has been very hard to find, for me. A similar region 1 release has been out of print for some time, and worth quite a bit of money now. I am SO glad I found this on the UK site, for a decent price. Comes nicely packaged, with great artwork on the discs and box. A pity it didn't come with English subtitles too, but. I am just glad to have this set, really fantastic animation and music! Ahhh.. memories. :-)

4.0 out of 5 stars It shouldn't have happened.., 27 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Just received this great collectible in the mail yesterday, and have had a chance to go over the contents etc. And can gladly say, that while it is a little pricey, it is definitely worth the price. This is an amazing set that any true Harry Potter fan would love, Includes some great memorabilia such as a Horcrux locket, some wonderfully produced art work, Maps of Hogwarts etc. But, now for the down-side...How on Earth Warner managed to get the WRONG discs for movies 4, 5 & 6 is beyond me..The cynic in me thinks they tried to pull a swifty on the unsuspecting public, to try and get rid of a few "older" discs, but have been found out!...but whatever the reason, for a high end quality release like this it shouldn't have happened, and spoils all the great work they did in making this set.
But, overall, a Fantastic set that takes pride of place in my collection!

2.0 out of 5 stars Don't worry about the Bonus Features.., 25 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Do yourself a favour, and just buy the Movie...don't worry about the Bonus Features...all they will likely show, is how NOT to make a parody film. As one reviewer said here already, if only they put as much work into the screenplay, as they did with the effects.. Pity, but IRON SKY has all the Hallmarks of a C Grade movie...Great potential, POORLY realised. Believe the hype, and you will be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally...., 11 Sept. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ever since news came out about the fantastic find of the (almost) complete version of Metropolis, I have been waiting for its release on Home format. This looks to be a great edition too, with a documentary and 56 page book all in a limited edition steelbook....If you are a lover of cinema, this purchase is a no-brainer....

3.0 out of 5 stars Christmas edition will NOT be 3D, 25 April 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I know that a lot of people are waiting for the proposed Christmas release of this movie, thinking that it will have a 3D version. I can say right now that it won't. And really, who will have proper 3D capabilities by the end of the year, which you WILL need?? Not many people I would think. But, that's not to say it won't be worth buying...It WILL include a wealth of features, including extensive making of documentaries, interviews and commentaries. Also, it will have around 30 minutes of unseen footage edited back into the movie.

So, while this release is movie only, and satisifies the people who aren't really interested in makings of's etc. If you really want to get your teeth into the details of how the movie was made etc. I would wait until the end of the year to purchase your copy, and just rent this DVD/BluRay to tide you over.

The proper 3D release of Avatar will not happen until the end of next year.

So, while the movie is great, I can only give this 3 stars, because of the absence of extra features....

5.0 out of 5 stars Bond....ULTIMATE Bond!, 3 May 2006
Yes! All 20 official Bond movies in 2-Disc Ultimate editions! With all new digitally re-mastered transfers, and Dolby Digital 5.1 on the older movies, PLUS all new special features,(Roger Moore recorded commentaries for all of his films), as well as keeping the existing features from the previous special editions...AND in a cool attache case. You will be very foolish not to pick this one up!
