My vhs tapes was going bad on both of these films.
I searched and searched for a copy of each one on dvd.
To my surprise they were both in the same double feature case.
Just what I wanted.
You have excellent service and excellent products.
Thank You

I bought a double DVD Close Encounters of the Third Kind along with Star Man with Jeff Bridges.
Close Encounters is a good Sci/FI. Both these movies DOES NOT HAVE THINGS EATING PEOPLE. . In both of these movies are the good guys. Dreyfuss shows just how good an actor he is, he was a young man when this was filmed.

STAR MAN is also a very good Sci/FI , another innocent man from outer space. How he forms himself into Debra Winger dead husband. It has some funny moments and some very loving moments. Very good movie.

This DVD has two of my husbands favorite movies. The DVD was well packaged and arrived on time. Now he can watch Close Encounters with commercials so he's a happy guy. Having Starman on the same DVD was an added bonus.

Starman- one of my favorite movies. Jeff Bridges and Karen Allen are perfect in this and the only thing wrong is that there isn't a sequel or two. I'd love to see what happens to those 5 or 6 extra balls left behind....... I also enjoy Richard Dreyfuss and Teri Garr in any movie so also like Close Encounters. It was nice to be able to get these 2 movies at a very reasonable price.

A couple of intriguing movies made in a time where "Aliens" (not the movie) were 'only' thought of as hostile. And people sought release from the eminent invasion from other worlds. Where people would get a chance to join the vas community of galactic(or universal) planets. And finally understand or get right, our own place peacefully. Two again, intriguing movies for their time that opened our eyes to the possible vas differences and commonalities. Get this one set. I believe you'll be glad you did,...especially on popcorn night. Five Stars.

Both of these movies are classics and wonderful entertainment for families and individuals who love Sci-Fi/Fantasy. I love the innocence of the film making here, no gratuitous violence, bloodshed or sex needed, just great stories, characters, writing, directing, acting and some suspense/good music. I wish more films today had these elements, but since they do not, I rarely go to movies now, instead relying on old favorites to re-visit. These two movies will forever be watchable and will never lose my interest.

I love both of these movies, although Starman is really why I bought it. It is a simple romance type story....sort of sci fi ish because Jeff Bridges is a alien dude. It is just a sweet movie. A good date night movie possibility. Both of these movies ok for the whole family in my opinion even though there is a small amount of language and a few adult themes.

Both movies are well directed, beautifully written with excellent actors. A "Must See" for anyone who seeks inspiration from positive sources. I first saw both on VCR and now I own them on DVD. I rank them right up there with To Kill A Mockingbird, The Secret Life of Bees, The Life of Pi, Harvey, all the classics . . . the list goes on and on and on.
