First of all, I will freely admit that I am a HUGE Tim Burton fan, and was very excited when I saw this listed on Amazon. I sold my copies of the movies I already owned on Blu-ray to pay for it. Of course, with the price being so low on this set, I actually ended up making a profit.
THE PACKAGING: When you open your copy, you will find a very sturdy box with the artwork shown on the website on the front, and the same border design on the back with a listing of all the movies included in the set. The discs themselves are housed in a foldout digi-pak, with the discs secured in a two-disc stack pattern. Since there are only seven discs, Batman is attached with a single hub. This is the type packaging where you have to remove the top disc in order to get the bottom disc out. I didn't have any problems, and I feel the discs are all very secure and safe. In addition to the discs being in the foldout package, there is also a list of all the supplemental material available for each title. I thought that was a nice touch. Each discs also has new artwork that is in keeping with the design that is present in the border around the front and back of the box. I liked the fact that new artwork was created for the discs, instead of just throwing discs in with the current artwork on them. Nice touch!! The movies all have the same special features as was present on previous Blu-ray releases.
THE BOOKLET: The booklet is a great treat. Each movie gets anywhere from 6 to 12 pages each in the book. The book is a hardcover, and the pages are all thick with a shiny sheen to them.
* Pee Wee - 8 pages
* Beetlejuice - 6 pages
* Batman - 8 pages
* Batman Returns - 8 pages
* Mars Attacks - 8 pages
* Corpse Bride - 12 pages
* Charlie - 12 pages
Each film gets an introduction, poster page, behind the scenes shots, some sketch art, movie info, and trivia. This is very nice, and should count as a blu-ray exclusive feature since this set is not available on DVD. I was just expecting to see a few pictures stuck in a book, with little thought put into it. What you get is a very well thought out little book, that adds to the enjoyment of each film.
BOTTOM LINE: If you don't have any of these on Blu-ray, then I would strongly suggest you get this set. It's a great price for what you get. If you do already own them, you may want to consider doing what I did. Sell all your current copies on Amazon, and then turn around and order this set. I ended up making a nice little profit, plus now I have all of these Burton films in a very nice collection which will proudly be displayed on my shelf.
Anyway, the mark on this set is that the Blu Ray trays don't properly hold the films. When I go to open this fold out style case there is always one movie that is off of the tray floating. This is weird since I never move the box until I am going to watch a movie and just from that slight movement it dislodges the disc. Very disappointed in that. I checked and the clips on the center of the plastic tray are still intact, so this is just a sloppy design.
But aside from that, this is a worthy buy for a great selection of films. Just don't move the box around to much once you have it.
To that I say, take a breath and think before you type.
This set is being released by Warner Brothers. All of the films in this collection were productions made with Warner Brothers Studios. The Tim Burton films that are missing from this set were made at other studios.
Edward Scissorhands? 20th Century Fox
The Nightmare Before Christmas? Disney (Orginally a Touchstone production)
Sleepy Hollow? Paramount
Big Fish? Dreamworks
Ed Wood? Touchstone (aka Disney)
Sweeney Todd? Dreamworks
Alice in Wonderland? Disney
So...before you go spitting venom, do some homework. You're getting seven films at a great price from arguably one of the most visionary directors of our time. I call that a bargain.
