I defy anyone to tell me what these 25 movies have in common--other than that they were produced/distributed by Universal Studios. This isn't a well-curated collection, just a bunch of movies that a lot of different audiences will like, but there is no audience who is going to have a taste for all of these films. "All Quiet on the Western Front" and "Mama Mia!"? OK.... And if you can find me anyone who's going to finish "Pillow Talk" then pop in "The Fast and the Furious," I'd love to meet him/her.

Instead, this set seems to be akin to the world's most expensive box of chocolates--something for everybody, but nothing for any one person. It's something that a great aunt with a lot of cash would give as a birthday gift: "I heard you like movies, so here are a bunch of movies."

This is a wonderful (if not great) collection of movies. But you see, the thing is, if you're into good movies, chances are you already have a bunch of these. For example, out of the 25 titles listed, I already have 13. For someone like me, paying that kind of money for duplicates of so many titles makes no sense at all. If you're new on the block and want to start a library (and have the money), sure, it's an amazing collection. As other reviewers have pointed out, though, one man's "wow!" is another man's yawn. You could never please everyone . . .which makes it seem futile to assemble a collection like this. And another thing: If this set celebrates 100 years of films from Universal, how come the oldest is 1930? Didn't they make anything worthwhile before ALL QUIET ON THE WESTERN FRONT (1930)? There are two versions of DRACULA (the Lugosi one and the Spanish-language version made concurrently) . . .but no FRANKENSTEIN? And what about all those Lon Chaney films? THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA and THE HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME? Okay, this is where it comes down to a matter of taste or choices. But to leave out the entire silent era? Absurd!

This collection shows the weakness of Universal. Universal was the house of horror and low-budget comedies in the 30's and 40's. Still, they had many fine titles in the 50's. The previous reviews are correct. This is simply a bunch of films, instead of something that would interest a collector. Even doing a 5 of each genre (horror, comedy, rom-com, action, etc) that covered from the beginnings of sound would have made this an interesting collect. Right now, I can see spending my money elsewhere.

This is a big disappointment. After 100 years in business, the best they can offer is 25-films including Animal House and Mamma Mia!. Some of these films you can buy for $0.75 - $1.00 plus shipping at Amazon and other online retailers. If you make a list of the films you truly want to watch, you can buy such on Blu-ray for probably less than $100. Apparently, this promotion got lost in the shuffle of General Electric selling NBC which owned Universal. I was expecting something spectacular with a nice book. This is pathetic. In comparison you should look at the 20th-Century Fox 75th Anniversary Collection: 75 films on 76 discs. I want to know who was in charge of this project at Universal. They should be ostracized. I'm glad I didn't attend the party.

This set turned out to be better than I expected. A separate disc for each movie. Information on each movie. I know a lot of people complained that no one person would enjoy all the movies because the movies are so different from each other, but my husband and I are seriously enjoying the variety. We get a lot of guests staying with us and I'm sure everyone one of them will find a movie they would like to watch. The movies are very good quality with no problems so far. We can't say enough about how much we are enjoying the movies.

Got this as a deal of the day for $25, contains many classics so I consider it a good value even if I don't watch all the movies. I plan to watch them in sequence so in addition to enjoying the story telling I can also observe the evolution of the film making. So far I've only watched a couple of the older films (e.g. All Quiet on the Western Front) and I was pleased with the quality of the video capture on the DVD, much better than I expected for a film that was shot 80+ years ago. My only disappointment is that by the time I saw this deal the blu-ray version was already sold out.
