Corporate exercise in money making
on 7 November 2010
As pointless a release as I've ever seen. Two versions of each film, I was happy with the original cuts, so why would I waste hours of my time to see a few seconds difference here and there. 4 hours of unseen footage, normally left on the cutting room floor, and 60, yes SIXTY hours of cobbled together extras,(miniature sets etc.), probably rescued from the bin that sits by the door next to the exit of the cutting room, with a few 'interviews'for good measure. I personally believe (I really do)you'd have to be some sort of moron to watch every minute of the footage. Over 70 hours of footage, in one handy ill-designed handy bulky package. Really pointless. As for the quality of the MOVIES, they are good, but I would have been happier with 1 disc, 1 case, and then buy just the films I actually wanted. This release reminds me of THE BEATLES ANTHOLOGY. The vast majority of that was rubbish sprinkled with a few reasonable alts'. A corporate money making exercise, and so is this. One for the absolute completist. Watch out for the eighteen disc blu-ray + dvd bonus set due out any time now. Probably. I did revise this to a 3* because it's so cheap now.
