Good collection if all you're after are the movies ......
on September 1, 2008
I'm a huge fan of Clint Eastwood ---- and always will be ---- so naturally I just had to get this collection. This is basically a three-pack set containing three of his westerns from Universal Pictures: High Plains Drifter (1973), Joe Kidd (1972) and Two Mules for Sister Sara (1969), all of which are great films. The color and picture transfer for each is nice, complete with a high-quality anamorphic widescreen presentation. My only complaint against this set is a total lack of any extra features for any of the movies, save for a theatrical trailer for each. Other than that, there's no commentaries, no deleted scenes, no extra footage, no featurettes, not even so much as a scene selection option on the main menu. Even the original single-disc editions of these movies had that! The three movies are contained on 2 discs ; disc 1 contains 'High Plains Drifter' and 'Joe Kidd', while disc 2 contains 'Two Mules for Sister Sara' solo. All in all, I'm not disappointed at having gotten this collection ------ I'm glad to have it, but the complete absence of any extra features that would have enhanced the viewing experience is unfulfilling. These are good Clint Eastwood films but they deserved better, more thorough dvd treatment than they received here. One gets the impression that this collection was hastily assembled and released just to make a quick buck. This set still gets my postive endorsement, but just be advised that you will find nothing here other than the movies themselves.
