Import Blu-ray/Region All pressing. Includes 5 discs. Subtitles: Danish, Dutch, English, Finnish, French, German, Norwegian, Swedish. Contains the acclaimed Indiana Jones action adventure films Raiders of the Lost Ark, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. In Raiders of the Lost Ark, Allies discover the Nazis are planning to use the Lost Ark of the Covenant as a weapon. The U.S. government enlists archaeologist-adventurer Indiana Jones (Harrison Ford) to locate the biblical treasure chest where the remains of the broken tablets of the Ten Commandments were placed. En route, Jones and his feisty ex-girlfriend, Marion (Karen Allen), must escape the clutches of evil Nazis, duplicitous 'natives', and a nest of venomous snakes-not to mention the wrath of God. In Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, thw whip-wielding archaeologist-adventurer Indiana Jones is joined by comely chanteuse Willie and a 12-year-old sidekick named Short Round. Together they search for a mystical stone stolen from an Indian community and stumble upon a dangerous Thuggee cult. Exotic locales, wild chases, death-defying cliff-hangers, last-minute rescues, screaming damsels, and tribal sacrifices are the order of the day as the threesome attempt to acquire the stolen stone. In Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, the fearless archeologist is once again pitted against the Nazis as he musters up every last ounce of cunning and courage to rescue his father and the mythical Holy Grail from their evil clutches. In Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, Harrison Ford dusts off his infamous brown fedora for another Indiana Jones film, which is once again made by Steven Spielberg and George Lucas. The year is 1957, and Indy is on the run from a team of Russian spies led by a rapier-wielding Irina Spalko (Cate Blanchett). The Russians want Indy to help them locate an ancient artifact that they believe can be used as the ultimate military weapon. Indy manages a narrow escape, and tries to return to his life as a professor of archaeology, but he soon bumps into a '50s greaser named Mutt (Shia LeBeouf). Mutt's mother, as well as one of Indy's longtime friends, have been captured somewhere in Peru. Mutt and Indy hop on a plane to the country, where they manage to track down both Mutt's mother, Marian (Karen Allen), and Professor Oxley (John Hurt), but they also find themselves surrounded by the same scheming Russians. The Russians have found the artifact they were seeking, but Indy now knows it's secret and dangerous powers. With the help of Mutt, Marian, and Oxley, he races to return it to it's rightful resting place.

So why did I give it a 3 you ask. Well I'll tell you why: The packaging. The packaging and case look great. Seriously it is gorgeous. HOWEVER, there is a problem when the case causes damage to the actual main material inside.
The discs don't come on a plastic press down, lift off normal kind of mechanism that you find in 99% of any kind of CD, DVD or Bluray case. All of these movies are in a slip cover. You have to slide it out from the side to get it out. Even this wouldn't be sooo terrible if I didn't have to really fight to get the discs out; the discs are in so tight that I felt like I had done a workout at the gym. Ok, maybe that's a bit of exaggeration but seriously, they are in tight. This causes friction between the delicate disc and the harsh paper the discs sit on. The first time I pulled out each disc, they all had scratches on them. No, they weren't extremely huge scratches, but they were scratches nonetheless. And maybe I'm the only one like this but, I like my movies to be flawless; NO fingerprints NO scratches. I had to put fingerprints on them to get them out but at least that's an easy fix but scratches are permanent. And not to mention I haven't even looked at them yet. I don't want scratches on my NEW material literally straight out the box. Also, after sliding these things out over and over again, over time the case is just killing my movies. Terrible, HORRIBLE design.
Ok, I feel like you may get my point by now. To wrap this up, this is a great buy to have the whole Harrison Ford Indy collection. But be prepared that if you buy this specific set and scratches annoy you, you will be highly annoyed. I plan to put these in some other slim cases because I can't bear to see my Indy's take damage for no good reason at all.
You know the movies, so there's no need to discuss those details any further. In my opinion, the Nazi villain movies are better than the non-Nazi villains. If you loved them, as I still do, they are wonderful, and I actually found more to enjoy in the second film (Temple of Doom) -- always loved the start of that movie, but felt it trailed off.
Color transfer appears uniformly good on a 51-inch Plasma picture, and sound is adequately loud and clear on TFX Certified surround sound equipment. Special effects, while appropriate to the vintage of the movies, are far more "noticeable" in the older movies -- the first two. Last Crusade and Kingdom of Skulls, especially, show how far CGI has advanced.
I didn't find the included special features (which if you've got older DVD sets, you probably already own) to increase the enjoyment of the movies. The video quality of the special features is not very good, and looks it on modern video equipment. That said, IMO, the set's a bargain for HD television, but you probably won't use it to show off your equipment to your friends. Nonetheless, I recommending getting some popcorn and ordering some pizza, and inviting some good friends (old and young) over to watch these movies. They just seem to go better in an audience, as they were made to be seen.
