Format:Blu-ray
I love Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance and especially Oldboy with a great deal of respect for Lady Vengeance so it was a no-brainer for me to get this set, which came out in an exclusive Tin Box Set at a certain electronics store I won't mention here but of which most fans of the films should know. Unfortunately, I and many others who purchased this set fell victim to a case of false advertising on, not only the box, but from the Oldboy blu-ray case stored inside. First of all, the box set indicates that it contains 8 discs but upon opening it and then the individual cases for the films, there are actually 4 discs. Ok, that's not terrible although it would've been preferable to separate some of the extras on Oldboy in another disc to make the audio/video presentation the best possible. And that brings me to my biggest complaint. The Oldboy Blu-Ray case AND disc itself lists that it has DTS-MA lossless audio (oh yeah, the Tin Box set lists that, too) but it actually does NOT have it. It doesn't even have lossless audio. It seems like Palisades-Tartan (the makers of the Blu-Ray) decided to drop that audio, which IS available on the original single disc Blu-Ray release of Oldboy, to make room for a 3 hour documentary. The documentary is very good and wasn't available on the original BD but why drop the lossless audio? Along with high def video, high def audio is a MAJOR selling point for buying Blu-Rays. So, why mention that you have it and not follow through with it? Why be under-handed and fool with the consumer? If you want them to double or triple dip on films, then at least be honest with your advertising on what your releases actually contain inside them. There, I got that off my chest. I e-mailed Palisades-Tartan about this and just wanted to write this review to warn people. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars The definitive edition of Park Chan-wook's magnum opus December 30, 2011
Format:Blu-ray
I won't bother reviewing the films themselves here; at this point, if you're looking into buying the set, you're probably already a fan. If not, I highly recommend you rent the films first as these are definitely not for everyone. That being said, all of them are fantastic films. Oldboy in particular will likely be viewed years from now as being a masterpiece and the other two are great as well in their own right.

Let's start off with the elephant in the room: Oldboy. It's definitely the most popular and acclaimed film in the collection and, unfortunately, has the most maligned high-def presentation. Mainly, there are complaints that the picture quality is mediocre and that it's missing the 7.1 lossless audio from the original Blu-ray.

1. The picture quality is true to the source and to the director's own intentions. Park discusses the look of the film on the features; a different chemical process was used and the bleached color, hazy photography, heavy grain, etc was all part of how he wanted his film to look. In this regard, I can't imagine the film looking that much better in high definition (although I'd loved to be proved wrong someday). It will always be an "ugly" film and will never look perfect.

2. The audio itself is more problematic as this was an error on Tartan's part. Still, boycotting the set and/or waiting for a future re-release from Tartan will likely be a fruitless endeavor. There's an easy solution that requires minimal effort. Here's the situation: at the time of this writing they will, with proof of purchase, supply you with a FREE copy of the original Blu-ray AND two free DVDs of your choice from their library. This is a great deal. After talking to them, I got the replacement Blu-ray and the two DVDs in a matter of days.

1.0 out of 5 stars Wait for the reissue. June 18, 2010
Format:Blu-ray
The movies included on this set are great! I love each one dearly, this set, however, is a bit of a problem. First of all the packaging lists the set as an 8 disk set, this set only has 4 disks. I can live with that, it's a typo, or the same copy from the 8 disk standard def version, all the content is there in half the disks, fine. Here is where it gets worrisome, quite a few people have reported their sets are missing the 32-page booklet. There have also been reports that some sets include multiple copies of one movie but none of the other movies. Lets, say you receive a copy that has the book and a perfect copy of each movie. Here is the kicker, on Oldboy there is supposed to have DTS-HD lossless mix(it's listed on the box), this is no where to be found. This is a mastering error, Palisades/Tartan has not officially acknowledged this, they might fix it they might now. So no matter what you get, you get a set that is defective. I am quite surprised they allowed this set out the door with these glaring problems.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Important Stuff December 28, 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This set now comes in a basic cardboard box and no longer states audio for Oldboy containing a DTS-HD track like the other two films, but rather a DD-Ex 5.1 surround mix for the Korean track and DD 5.1 for the English track. Also no longer included is the 32 page booklet, though if you remove the near duplicate sheet of paper they pasted over the back of the set and compare the text on it to the original print, the booklet originally came with this cardboard set but must have later been removed. When I pulled this pasted copy off the box-set, a common white residue you get from cheap glue used on things that aren't intended to be peeled off remained over the small area where they had applied glue. I haven't tried to remove it lest I tackle the loathsome sticky residue that will greet me from beneath.

Of course, the films are what make this an excellent set and the quality and presentation of each film's transfer seem to all be very well done. In Oldboy's case the video quality is not as "clean" but this is due to the directors intentions (gritty, grainy, etc) rather than a fault in the transfer. My only complaint is how the subtitles on Oldboy seemed smaller than the rest of the films. The impressive three hour making of Oldboy covers some aspects of almost every scene: during, between, after takes... plus some party and airport bits. The other films include many bonus features including half-hour documentaries. There is at the very least a director commentary track to each film, with him sometimes appearing on multiple tracks with others - this can get busy with subtitles but they somehow keep a readable pace most the time though when there are three people talking you may occasionally wonder which one pairs with the subs.

Its 50/50 chance it will come with a tin collector metal case or cardboard box.

That would be sacrilege to listen to these fine films dubbed. Let's pretend this question wasn't posed here and we'll leave it at that.
