5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Set August 23, 2010
By Cass G
Format:DVD
Great transfers, very nice set, I wanted to write this review for people who think they can not watch region 0 DVD's or get this set because they are in the U.S or elsewhere, and share the fact that many DVD players can be made region free quite easily, I simply looked up the models of my DVD players players on google, and found simple remote unlocking codes for both my Marantz and Pioneer players and now both play any region DVD's without issue.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Holy Grail of Meyer March 23, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
First off, if this set were widescreen, I'd give it 5 stars, but it's not, so I gave it 4 (EDIT: I didnt realize that these were actually filmed mostly in the standard or full screen ratio when I wrote this review, so I've added a star since). That is my only real gripe with this otherwise crucial set of Russ Meyer films. I guess another minor gripe would be that they didnt package the films in chronological order, but that probably wont bother most people.

If youre a fan of unique films, you have to get acquainted with Meyer, pronto. If you havent seen his films, quit wasting time, you dont know what youre missing. This set is totally worth the 80 bucks I dropped on it (it has kept me entertained for over a 2 weeks so far). It's not all-inclusive, but it does have most of his films, and the only ones that most people really want to see. Aside from Beyond the Valley of the Dolls, the few films omitted are minor works. To be honest, I dont think anyone would have missed Pandora Peaks if it had been left out.

So here's what youre getting into: Sometimes funny, sometimes frightening, always unique live action "cartoons" featuring hand picked actors and actresses who best represent the overly libidinous characters populating the warped universe Russ Meyer lives in. These films will shock and amaze you. You'll laugh, you'll cheer, you'll shake your head in disbelief. The good guys always win and the bad guys end up getting whats coming to them.

The films, to follow a general trend, started out as almost plotless "peepshows", then got more interesting in the mid sixties with dime store novel plots involving salacious and seedy characters in rural or southern locales.

First of all, this is a fantastic collection and a great value.

Regarding the so-called value--you have to watch the price on this as it fluctuates wildly! I got it for a mere $77, but I've seen it as high as $120. As I write this review it is not even available as a "Fulfilled by Amazon" purchase at this time, which is how I purchased it only a week and a half ago. Why this is all over the place like this is a wonder. But for what I paid, it was only a few dollars more than the 3-title Vixen Collection, which is going for $63. Add Faster Pussycat for $35, and you're over $90. And here you're getting all of them except the classic Beyond the Valley of the Dolls and the obscure 7 Minutes. [Note: BVD is available for a mere $13 as part of a 4 disc set called "Classic Quad Set 9" here on Amazon and is well worth it, as the "official" release goes for a whopping $50--damn they love to stick to the RM fans and right where it hurts!].

But beware: these WILL NOT play on a USA store-bought stock dvd player that has not been modded to be all-region. I have a toshiba dvd player/recorder that I got 2 yrs ago and a panasonic bluray player that I just got just 4 months ago and these won't play on either. I rolled the dice and hoped they would work, but did not. I'm going to end up ripping and re-burning them to dvd+r's on my iMac to erase the region encoding until I get a region-free player. If you want to start watching these right away, make sure your player can be modded to all-region, or buy one that definitely can or already is. I searched online, but could not find codes for either of my 2 units--such is life.

This issue aside, the films are exactly as advertised: pure Russ Myer! What more can be said?

4.0 out of 5 stars Too good to be true? August 20, 2013
Format:DVD
How can you buy 13 Russ Meyer's films for about $10 each? Too good to be true? This collection has everything including the earlier nudie works that are seldom seen, everything except his studio efforts, "Seven Minutes" and "Beyond The Valley Of The Dolls," the 2 instances in which he wasn't his own producer/distributor.

And here's the 13 films:

2001 Pandora Peaks
1979 Beneath the Valley of the Ultra-Vixens
1976 Up!
1975 Supervixens
1973 Black Snake
1970 Cherry, Harry & Raquel!
1968 Vixen!
1968 Finders Keepers, Lovers Weepers!
1967 Good Morning... and Goodbye!
1967 Common Law Cabin
1966 Mondo Topless
1965 Motor Psycho
1965 Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!
1965 Mudhoney
1964 Lorna
1963 Europe in the Raw
1962 Wild Gals of the Naked West
1961 Eve and the Handyman
1959 The Immoral Mr. Teas

The two seminal films in his oeuvre: "Faster Pussycat" in which his rural nudie aesthetic blend perfectly with his thriller/action sensibilities, making the next run of films rise to the next melodramatic level (particularly "Common," "Good," and "Finders"); and then the classic "Vixen!" in which he's loosened his hold on strict narrative and the buttons on his stars' cleavage and which ushers in the classic daffy sexy era of Meyer that lasted to 1979 and the last desperate gasp of "Beneath." Finally (partially due to hardcore) he became rather culturally obsolete as a filmmaker.
