Editorial Reviews

Awakenings
By opening one man's eyes to the world... he opened his own. Robert De Niro (in an Oscar(r)-nominated performance) and Robin Williams star in this powerful, true story of a maverick doctor and the patients whose lives he changes. Williams plays Dr. Malcolm Sayer, a shy research physician who uses an experimental drug to "awaken" the catatonic victims of a rare disease. DeNiro co-stars as Leonard, the first patient to receive the controversial treatment. His awakening, filled with awe and enthusiasm, proves a rebirth for Sayer too, as the exuberant patient reveals life's simple but unutterably sweet pleasures to the introverted doctor. Encouraged by Leonard's stunning recovery, Sayer administers the drug to the other patients. The story of their friendship during this emotional journey is a testament to both the tenderness of the human heart and the strength of the human soul.

The Fisher Kings
Robin Williams, Jeff Bridges, Amanda Plummer and Mercedes Ruehl star in Terry Gilliam's must-see comic masterpiece. Williams is Parry, a homeless history professor who lives in a fantasy world full of castles, Red Knights and damsels in distress. Bridges co-stars as Jack, New York's #1 shock deejay, whose off-hand arrogance triggers a tragedy which ruins his career. Penniless and without prospects, Jack finds himself plucked from disaster by the most improbable of saviors... Parry. And so the amazing story of the Fisher King unfolds a modern quest for redemption and the Holy Grail, filled with humor, heartbreak and ravishing romance.

The Survivors
When Academy Award(r) winners Walter Matthau and Robin Williams team up as a pair of lovable losers pursued by a psychopathic killer, you can bet that madness and mayhem are not far behind. Donald Quinelle (Williams), a rising sales executive, is sacked by his boss's pet parrot the same day that Sonny Paluso (Matthau) watches his gas station go up in flames. Drowning their sorrows at a coffee shop,the two New Yorkers disarm a would-be bandit Jack Locke (Jerry Reed), and briefly become media heroes - then quickly learn about the price and perils of survival in an insane world. Jack is freed by a bureaucratic slipup and goes gunning for Sonny and Donald, who discover that their survival depends on their friendship at all costs. The unique blend of Williams' frenzied humor and Matthau's subtle wit makes the Survivors an outrageously hilarious comedy.

I have not watched all three DVD's yet, but the case was full wrapped in plastic, & the discs themselves do not appear to have an scratches or marks on the playing surface. They appear to be in much better shape then the listed condition of "good" & the first movie of the three I did watch, Awakenings, had no play back problems.
The disappointment I had was upon opening the disc case, all three disc are stacked on top of each other, rather then having a middle insert so each one could have its own slot.
The movies are stand alone with no special features, which I knew they would be.
I was originally just looking for a copy of The Fisher King, but this seemed like a better deal, & I got what I paid for, & the aspect ratio is the same or better then they single versions of the three movies.
If your are not someone who needs the best possible version of a movie, I would recommend this for purchases. You're getting three movies for the equivalent of $4.33 each.
I just wish the discs where not stacked on top of each other.
That is why I gave it 3 stars instead of 4. If Amazon would let me I would have given it 3.5, but they don't seem to want to allow half ratings.

Awakenings and The Fisher King are great movies. To be honest I had never heard of The Survivors but it wasn't a bad movie, just not as good as the first two in this set. Still, you've got to love Robin Williams. I also had a soft spot for the first two movies as I used to work in a NYS psychiatric hospital in the 1980's and, having lived most of my life on Long Island, I've spent some time in NY City too.

"Awakenings" & "The Fisher King" were great movies; too bad about "The Survivors". Good actors can have poor performances - witness Williams and Matthau here. Interesting introduction of survivalists/preppers from three decades ago. As an aside, GENEL originally sent a mislabeled DVD - but happily replaced it. Thanks to them a one star experience improved to five star!

Great combination of movies, the only negative I would say is that the volume on the "Awakenings" DVD is far quieter than the other 2 infact have to have the volume up 100% to hear it.
Quick delivery, well packaged item and would recommend the seller!

Excellent. Robin Williams is one of my favorite actors. He has the ability to make you laugh, cry, think, and especially feel emotions. I cannot say enough wonderful things about him - he does not get enough credit for his acting talent.

Loved Awakenings, liked Survivors, but couldn't get more than a quarter way through Fisher King. DeNiro and Williams in Awakenings is pure genius. Williams and Walter Matheau in Survivors was fun. Worth buying.

The Survivors is not nearly as excellent as the other movies, but this was a good deal. Robin Williams was nothing if not versatile.
