Editorial Reviews

Synopsis: The new Stanley Kubrick Collection includes five of the great director's masterpieces in stunning all-new digital transfers, restored picture and new digital audio. Titles include 2-disc special editions of 2001: A Space Odyssey, A Clockwork Orange, The Shining, and Eye's Wide Shut; and the 1-disc Deluxe Edition of Full Metal Jacket. Also included is the bonus, Stanley Kubrick: A Life In Pictures.

2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY A space mission that could reveal man s destiny is jeopardized by a malfunctioning shipboard computer. A dazzling journey that tops them all and showed the way for other effects-packed films that followed.

A CLOCKWORK ORANGE A jolting tale of crime and punishment stars Malcolm McDowell as a young neo-punk who becomes the guinea pig for a state-sanctioned cure of his tendency toward the old ultraviolence.

EYES WIDE SHUT Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman star in a brilliantly provocative tour- de-force (The New York Times). A wife s admission of unfulfilled longings plunges a Manhattan doctor into a bizarre erotic odyssey.

FULL METAL JACKET Marine recruits endure basic training under a leather-lunged D.I., then plunge into the hell of Vietnam. Matthew Modine heads a talented ensemble in this searing look at a process that turns people into killers.

THE SHINING Heeeeere s Johnny! In a macabre masterpiece adapted from Stephen King s novel, Jack Nicholson falls prey to forces haunting a snowbound mountain resort with a macabre history.

Bonus Disc STANLEY KUBRICK: A LIFE IN PICTURES The moviemaker s career comes into sharp focus in this compelling documentary narrated by Tom Cruise. Fascinating footage glimpses Kubrick in his early years, at work on film sets and at home, augmented by candid commentary from collaborators, colleagues and family.

Format: DVD
There's a fair amount of misinformation about aspect-ratio (screen-shape) in these customer reviews. I oversaw numerous film restorations for a major American film studio for more than a decade, so I know this subject matter rather well.
Here are some facts concerning the aspect-ratios of Kubrick's films from "2001" on. Of these films, only "2001" was filmed in "widescereen," if we are using that term to refer to the processes known as Cinemascope, Panavision and Super 70mm, which have a screen aspect-ratio (height-to-width ratio) of 1 unit of height to 2.35 units of width (i.e., the image is more than twice as wide as it is high). This "widescreen" aspect-ratio can only be displayed in its entirety on any TV screen by placing matte bars above and below the image.
Every Kubrick film after "2001," from "Clockwork Orange" to "Eyes Wide Shut," was shot on 35mm film and was filmed "flat" (a term meaning the image was not anamorphically squeezed in the original 35mm photography and is not "widescreen" as defined above). These films were photographed filling the 1-to-1.33 35mm film frame from side-to-side and top-to-bottom, with no mattes. This 1-to-1.33 frame matches the old TV screen perfectly; but it has not been used for theatrical presentation since the 1950s.
For their theatrical presentations, Kubrick had these films matted at the top and bottom, deleting the tops and bottoms of the original image and changing the aspect-ratio from 1-to-1.33 to either 1-to-1.66 or 1-to-1.85 (making the image a bit more than 1&1/2 times wide as it is high).

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This is the first of Warner Home Video's new Director Series DVD sets. Included are brand new versions of:
2001: A Space Odyssey - Special Edition (2-disc)
A Clockwork Orange: Special Edition (2-disc)
Eyes Wide Shut: Special Edition (2-disc)
Full Metal Jacket: Deluxe Edition
The Shining: Special Edition (2-disc)
All titles have been restored and remastered and will offer both archive and new bonus features. The documentary "Stanley Kubrick: A Life In Pictures" will also be included in this set. Apparently missing from this set, but also being released in new versions individually on October 23, are Lolita and Barry Lyndon. Eyes Wide Shut will include both the rated and unrated versions. No new release of Dr. Strangelove is planned, nor will it be included in this set either. All titles contained in the boxed set with the exception of "Full Metal Jacket" will be available separately, including the documentary.

All of the included films will have commentary, although "Eyes Wide Shut" will have only scene-specific commentary. The following are the extras included for each film:

2001: A Space Odyssey (1968) - A film full of technical details about space travel before we'd even been to the moon coupled with much to think about in the realm of what it means to be human. Disc 2 will have the following extra features:
Channel 4 documentary: 2001: The Making of a Myth
Standing on the Shoulders of Kubrick: The Legacy of 2001
Vision of a Future Passed: The Prophecy of 2001
2001: A Space Odyssey - A Look Behind the Future
2001: FX and Early Conceptual Artwork
Look: Stanley Kubrick!

There evidently is an issue with availability of this set. Warner Home Video switched to a new fulfillment software which caused some distribution problems for this set.

FYI, while the box states that both versions of"Eyes Wide Shut" are included, they aren't. So we have the international version as the only one on the disc. If you're looking for the rated edition, you'll have to pick up the previous edition of the film on DVD. Evidently Warner elected not to include both back in Sept. but the boxes weren't reprinted to indicate this. I'm sure many fans will not miss it since it is "censored" but there will be some folks that will want it no matter what.

"Eyes" is also missing Sydney Pollack's commentary track that was originally to be on the set. As to why "Barrie Lyndon" and "Lolita" are missing at (10/23/07)this time rumor has it that they require some additional digital tweaking/restoration and Warner wanted to get the set out before Christmas.

All the films look spectacular with a little more information on the sides for many (but not all) of the films. All are presented in anamorphic widescreen so those with widescreen sets will not have to adjust their sets as they did with the full screen presentation of "The Shining" and "Full Metal Jacket" (the films were shot in a full screen format because Kubrick recognized that when they would be shown on TV and home video they would be in a pan and scan format. He didn't want that. These aspect ratios represent how they were supposed to be shown in theaters).

What you do get is pretty spectacular though and fans that didn't buy the previous sets will be happy with this version of the box set.

We get two disc special editions for every film here except "Full Metal Jacket" with numerous extras.

How do I access the unrated version of Eyes Wide Shut???
Wow! They really screwed up. I just bought this today at Best Buy (only had 2 in stock), so I guess I was a 'lucky' one. At least it's the UNRATED version and not the rated version, or I would've been pissed. The unrated version is the CORRECT version of the film anyway. Still, how do they screw... Read More

Warning - AWFUL artwork and packaging
I canceled my amazon purchase and was lucky enough (I guess) to find a copy at a Best Buy (they only had 2 copies).

I was a bit disappointed by the cover art of the individual discs. Really bad! 'Space Odyssey' is all black w/ only Hal's red circle face right in the middle (so generic). ... Read More

Why no single release of Full Metal Jacket on regular DVD?
Yes, definetly right! WB just released 4:3 FMJ DVD on May 15, 2007. If they release 16:9 FMJ right now, few will buy the May release. They need to empty their stock! Wait for a year and eventually WB will release 16:9 FMJ.

Be aware, The Shining has been cut in length!
I wouldn't worry too much. Amazon gets stuff wrong a lot. The Warner Brothers DVD store has it listed as 144 mins.
