Great collection, almost no subtitles
on 14 September 2009
The films are all great, in my opinion this is Carpenter at his best. However, I'm taking one star off for two reasons.
First, there are absolutely no subtitles, apart from The Thing, not even for hard of hearing.
Second, the collection's best film, and Carpenter's best film, The Thing, is just a repackaging of the older DVD version. The aspect ratio is 2.35:1, but encoded for 4:3 TVs. That means, if you own a widescreen TV, you will get the movie "windowed" in the centre of the screen.
But, again, for the price of the boxset, it is a great deal.
