wonderful box set..and the first movie..FINALLY proper aspect ratio!
on February 23, 2009
I enjoyed this series of films very much. The "Goldmember" film a bit less but overall a very creative and funny pop culture feast! One of the big bonus's for me anyway is to finally have the original Austin Powers movie in the proper 2:4 aspect ratio after years of having to watch it on 1:85 on normal DVD. This may not mean much to some viewers but to those interested in seeing what they did at the theater it does. The other two films came out in proper 2:4 aspect ratio on DVD previously so why the original was formatted a bit off was always a mystery to me. The films look great on Blu-ray ...and while they don't have any NEW bonus features to my notice..at least they did import all the old ones and music videos (some blu-rays are coming out WITHOUT the previous bonus features).
I picked the set up for a price that came to about $15 per film so I think its a very good value.
UPDATE.... Amazon.com is using a review of mine from a previous set for this one.... well, to answer another's comment.. it's a crazy good deal compared to what I paid a few years ago, but BR prices have been dropping as fast as one can say "another Laker loss" ...in the last couple of years.
