Titanic Blu ray box set review,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Titanic Collector's Edition (Four-Disc Combo: Blu-ray 3D / Blu-ray / Digital Copy) (Amazon Exclusive) (Blu-ray)
THIS REVIEW AND RATING IS FOR THE BLU-RAY BOX SET PACKAGING--NOT THE MOVIE! THE MOVIE DESERVES FIVE STARS.
I recently bought two Titanic Blu-ray box sets. Both sets arrived with the cheaply made cardboard inserts mangled. This set was evidently created by someone who had no experience in manufacturing design. The book, blu-ray disc, and supplementary materials shifted around during shipping and damaged the interior of the box set. $109.00 plus shipping is a lot of money to spend for an item that is poorly created. Paramount should look at what Warner Brothers and Twentieth Century Fox have produced over the past few years. "The Wizard of Oz", "Gone With the Wind", and "The Sound of Music" were superior box sets compared to this flimsy produced product. One of the Titanic box sets also had missing supplementary materials. (Titanic passenger dossier as listed on the back of the box.) At least Amazon provided a prompt refund, but I had to package the product up, and take it to a UPS shipper.
Amazon produced this set in a very small production run. The online price varies from day to day--from just over $100 to $300 or more. Believe me, this box set is not worth more than fifty dollars!!! Stay with the standard blu-ray disc only edition. You will avoid many problems!!!

Thanks for saving me of the disappointment of this box set and money!! I do have "The Wizard of Oz" and "Gone with the Wind" and a signed by Linda Blair # 43/500 box set of "The Exorcist". All beautiful well designed sturdy box sets. I paid $80.00 for "The Exorcist" signed when it was first released for its 25th anniversary now they can fetch up to $500.00us on E-bay or Amazon sellers. Great little investment. So I'm a very picky of collector of box sets the quality must be there. I will not buy it now thanks for the heads up

Glad that I was able to help you. The poor quality, thinly made cardboard inserts made this set a huge disappointment. The box set looks new on the outside, but is totally trashed on the inside! What a shame, and a huge embarrassment for Paramount. The only thing worse than this is the extrememy poor transfer of "My Fair Lady." The film was made by Warner Brothers, but Paramount owns the video rights. It is the worst Blu-ray title I have seen in years. I have also reviewed that film. Best Regards, Bulldog Bill (P.S.--Love your screen name!--Another great film!
