    5.0 out of 5 stars Great Set August 30, 2014
    By JJ452
    Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
    Great Set. I'm an Alfred fan & love every one of his movies. I think he was a genius. This set includes 14 of his great films. It doesn't include North By Northwest. However, compared to the price for the other Masterpiece Collection; there's a difference between $70-90. So, I purchased this set & bought NBN seperately. The set comes in a book style packaging, taking up the room of just that; an average book. Truly, a great set. Hopefully we'll get every one of his great films on Blu-Ray.

    5.0 out of 5 stars great collection August 22, 2013
    Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
    Wonderfully produced set with many classics, beautifully (for the most part) on blu-ray. Some of the reproductions are better than others, but generally a well-done high-def set.

    A very good value, if you consider the cost of buying all these films individually.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Great set with some significant flaws October 23, 2014
    Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
    ***Content***

    I won't spend a lot of time discussing content. These are Hitchcock's US films that are currently held by Universal Studios. Is it a complete catalog of Hitchcock's classics? No. Missing are "The Wrong Man," "Notorious," "Dial M For Murder," and "Strangers on a Train," among others. But this set does contain his very best: Vertigo, Psycho, The Birds, Rear Window, North By Northwest (under license from WB), Rope, Shadow of a Doubt, etc.

    The question, content-wise, is whether you would be justified purchasing this set when the much cheaper "Essentials" collection contains the first five of the very best films listed above. I think the answer depends on what sort of fan you are. If you want the cream of the crop and aren't particularly interested in diving in to his lesser-known catalog and watching his evolution as a film-maker both before and after that peak period, then save yourself seventy bucks and pick up the "Essentials" set. They're exactly the same discs, albeit with cheaper packaging. But if you really want to learn about movies, and be entertained, and watch a prolific director change with the times, this set still provides a lot of value for the dollar. Fifteen movies at an average of seven or eight dollars apiece is a pretty healthy bargain.

    Extras are copious on the "greats" and bit less so on the catalog pieces. Almost all of them are ported over from prior DVDs, and so are low-res letterboxed/pillarboxed presentations. Sigh.

    ***Packaging***

    The set is contained in a relatively sturdy box, and includes a nice softcover book of about 60 pages that shows movie posters, production drawings, and contains some info about each movie.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Best Hitchcock collection going as of 2014 October 2, 2014
    Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
    This region-free collection of the suspense master's late-period works has more movies for less $$$ than the current Region 1 box set, so you'd be mad not to buy it instead. As near as I can tell, it's the same prints and bonus features from the other set. (With that comes some transfer issues that nerdy cineastes like me care about, but I doubt the average movie fan will mind. In any case, until Criterion sub-licenses these films, this is the best you can get.)

    The packaging is attractive. The disc menus, because the set is meant to be sold around the world, are a bit cluttered with language options. But that's easy to overlook.

    At the risk of starting a flame war, here's how I would tier the films:

    UNDISPUTED MASTERPIECES
    Vertigo, Rear Window, Psycho

    EXCELLENT FILMS
    Saboteur, The Birds, Shadow of a Doubt, The Man Who Knew Too Much (this is the 1956 color version with James Stewart and Doris Day, recommend watching in conjunction with Criterions new disk of the original 1938 British version)

    STILL OF INTEREST TO HITCHCOCK FANS
    Everything else...

    Rope is a great one-take experiment that is still being echoed in films like Birdman.

    The Trouble with Harry and Family Plot are rare Hitchcock out-and-out comedies. Harry's comedy is dark, about how the discovery of a dead body upends a peaceful Vermont tow. Plot is lighter, with a breezy script by Ernest Lehman, who also wrote North by Northwest.

    Frenzy has one of my favorite of all Hitchcock sequences (you'll know it when you see it). Topaz and Marnie show Hitchcock experimenting with color cinematography. Torn Curtain has one of Hitch's most famous fight scenes, and was the film that a young Stephen Spielberg sneaked onto the set to observe.

    If you love movies and everything that goes into them then this collection will keep you mesmerized. Watch the angles, the background, the intensity of every detail. Hitchcock was a genius and this collection makes it fun and scary and all the good things movies can offer!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Love the packaging October 8, 2014
    Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
    Got the region free version and it works quite well on my region 1 blue ray player. Love the packaging. Movies are easy to find and the collection doesn't take up a lot of space.

    Movies are great!

    blu-ray vs. dvd
    Is there a difference between the Blu-ray and the last DVD releases? YES! Take a look at THE TROUBLE WITH HARRY. WOW! It was Hitchcock's first use of Paramounts VisaVision process and it's a beauty. VERTIGO is a big improvement. Haven't look at every disc yet but I suspect the Blu-ray will be a... Read More

    Masterpiece vs. Essentials
    This is an excellent collection and a very good deal. Hitch is the best director, in my opinion, and I buy duplicates and triplicates of certain titles. I paid $149.99 when this set was issued in November of 2012. Grab it while it is available.
