5.0 out of 5 stars I love the smell of napalm in the morning... et al
Yes, the collection of quintessential films from Coppola. Apocalypse Now and Apocalypse Now Redux need no further comment. The Conversation, a more obscure film than Apocalypse Now, is fabulous. Gene Hackman reprised a similar type of shadowy surveillance character in Enemy of the State. The Conversation may have influeced casting Hackman into the role he had in Enemy of...

3.0 out of 5 stars Worth It Only for "One From the Heart" Die-Hards
This four-disc Blu-Ray set offers the previously released Blu-Rays of "Apocalypse Now"/"Apocalypse Now Redux," "The Conversation" and "Tetro" along with the BD debut of Coppola's 1982 famed misfire "One From the Heart." The latter boasts a HD remastered (1.33 fullscreen) transfer with 5.1 DTS MA audio and fine supplements reprieved from the older DVD release, though there...

3.0 out of 5 stars Worth It Only for "One From the Heart" Die-Hards, December 30, 2012
This review is from: Francis Ford Coppola: 5-Film Collection (Apocalypse Now/Apocalypse Now Redux/One From the Heart/Tetro/The Conversation) [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
This four-disc Blu-Ray set offers the previously released Blu-Rays of "Apocalypse Now"/"Apocalypse Now Redux," "The Conversation" and "Tetro" along with the BD debut of Coppola's 1982 famed misfire "One From the Heart." The latter boasts a HD remastered (1.33 fullscreen) transfer with 5.1 DTS MA audio and fine supplements reprieved from the older DVD release, though there is some odd filtering in the transfer throughout (almost looks like you're watching the film through a net, especially if you look closely enough). Still recommended for Coppola enthusiasts, though the fact that the set only includes one new-to-Blu title and isn't comprehensive may restrict its appeal to most buffs (note that "Apocalypse Now" doesn't contain the special features from its three-disc Blu-Ray release either; just the single, "movie only" disc with both cuts of the movie).

This review is from: Francis Ford Coppola: 5-Film Collection (Apocalypse Now/Apocalypse Now Redux/One From the Heart/Tetro/The Conversation) [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
Yes, the collection of quintessential films from Coppola. Apocalypse Now and Apocalypse Now Redux need no further comment. The Conversation, a more obscure film than Apocalypse Now, is fabulous. Gene Hackman reprised a similar type of shadowy surveillance character in Enemy of the State. The Conversation may have influeced casting Hackman into the role he had in Enemy of the State. Tetro, as good as it is, may not be in a genre for everyone. One from the Heart, I believe, is underrated. You can puruse better reviews about them than I can write here on Wikipedia and Rotten Tomatoes. The collection is in a Blu-Ray blue plastic jewel case not much thicker than a standard sized one. It contains four Blu-Ray disks on two double-disk hinged panels in the case. Disks are not stacked on each other directly or offset as is done in other packaging. A nice touch. Apocalypse Now and Apocalypse Now Redux are both on one Blu-Ray -- it has plenty of room for both of them with no difficulty. The others three films are on their own individual Blu-Ray disks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth every dollar., December 7, 2013

This review is from: Francis Ford Coppola: 5-Film Collection (Apocalypse Now/Apocalypse Now Redux/One From the Heart/Tetro/The Conversation) [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
It was on sale and worth every penny. I never saw Tetro before this and loved it. One from the heart is beautiful and has the best soundtrack ever and the Conversation is just wonderful. A fantastic package on every level.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic films at a great price, December 24, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Francis Ford Coppola: 5-Film Collection (Apocalypse Now/Apocalypse Now Redux/One From the Heart/Tetro/The Conversation) [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
You get 4 films. Two versions of Apocolypse Now. One of his newer films and also the Conversation and one From the Heart. One from the heart is unlike any film I have seen at at time it was made totally revolutionary. It was a Xmas gift to myself and I'm excited to revisit some of these films. Only issue is the packaging is a little bland but for the price it's still awesome.

What's not to like with this movie collection? - assuming you like Coppola movies of course. 5 films, far too much to review here so you'll need to do that research elsewhere.

One movie in black and white one in full screen format not wide. Only movies worth watching were Apocalypse Now.
