The design here is compact and neat. There is an oversized blu ray keep case that holds all 7 discs. The discs are in back to back holders.
This is definitely the best quality we have ever gotten. There is a question as to weather or not this is the best possible transfer we could get, but it is very difficult to judge something on conjecture. Anyway, the aspect ratio is 1.85:1 with a 1080p/mpeg2 transfer. This is the same remastering as the 2006 blu ray and we may not get a better version for a long time.
While watching the movie it looks very good, but there is significant noise on the screen at pints which can be distracting. This definitely comes from the movie being an older print but it is far less noticing e when looking the outdoor scenes.
The transfer here is AVC-encode. The image is far nicer than you have ever gotten before but thee is still some noise from the original content. I do not know why but the final fight scene seems to pop more than the rest of the movie. The scenes becomes a tad sharper somehow.
This transfer is beautiful. It doesn't blow the first two away but it is definitely a nicer clearer print. This movie does showcase what Blu Ray can do for you. There is so much detail in faces and on skin that it really helps you want to watch this version. Dark scenes have some shadowing issues but this is still a very nice transfer.Read more ›
..And enough about the price drop. Seriously. If you want to complain, blog about it. Create a discussion on this product. Don't rate the product poorly because YOU paid too much.
As for those of you complaining about the price droppings...have you noticed the significant drop overall in blu-ray pricing? Now the blu-ray is becoming more mainstream, the prices are coming down! If there are no advantages to pre-ordering, then don't get it! Everyone has had a situation where they paid for something and later saw it cheaper and lost a few bucks. Amazon is still cheaper than going out to Best Buy or Wal-mart and getting it. Factor in that the majority of Amazon users don't have to pay tax and can have the items shipped to you for FREE, then that is even more in savings. So again, if you don't like it, don't buy it!
In Rocky, washed-up Philly boxer Rocky Balboa is granted the chance of a lifetime. Hand-picked by boxing champ Apollo Creed (Carl Weathers) as his next opponent, Rocky Balboa (Stallone) must find the physical strength under the tutelage of scrappy trainer Mickey (Burgess Meredith) and the courage to go the distance and prove that he's "not just another bum from the streets." But even if he doesn't win, at least he will find love and self respect in the arms of Adrian (Talia Shire). Rocky won the 1978 Oscar for Best Picture, made the name "Adrian" an annoyance to anyone bearing the name, and inspired countless people to run up staircases and throw their fists in the air triumphantly.
In Rocky II, The Italian Stallion tries to start a family and a new life away from the boxing ring. Despite partial blindness in his right eye sustained from his first bout with Creed and a wife clinging to life, Rocky is lured back to the ring for a rematch that will literally come down to the last second.
Rocky III takes the series in a slightly more surrealistic directon.Read more ›

I've been noticing lately that Amazon has been misapplying the "Multi-format" label to a lot of Blu-ray only releases, of which this is one. So, you are correct in that none of the discs in this set will work on a DVD player.

|One thing I'd change....||
Well, obviously, Amazon doesn't have any control over how this set is sold, but my recommendation would be to open the package as soon as you take it out of the mailbox and discard the offending disc before taking the rest of the set into the house.

|Probably should wait now, until Creed gets released and will most likely...||
I don't know, I think they might want to keep the Creed movies separate so it can stand as its own franchise. Also, WB, not MGM, owns the distribution rights to Creed, so that may be an issue. Then again, WB and MGM have collaborated on boxed sets before, and Rocky Balboa was actually released... Read More

I would like to know also. Does this mean it does not come with a box? Are they loose Blu-ray disks similar to how Amazon sells some software as loose disks with its "Frustration free" packaging? I will cancel my order if I don't get a box. (this concerns Cosmos Blu-ray)
