These are four great movies that I've enjoyed many years and I wanted the BluRay editions to see the best images I could on my new 4K television. I've watched 3 out of the 4 so far.
I have several major complaints.
First, the BluRay disks are setup so I have to watch trailers for other movies that I don't want or even like. I did not buy the BluRays to watch crummy trailers for bad movies! This happens every time you watch the movies for as long as the BluRay remains in your collection.
Second, the menus are locked so you can't select what you want.
Third, the BluRays are setup such that there is no way to resume watching where you had to stop or power down the player for any reason what so ever.
Fourth, having to fight with the BluRays to avoid the trailers or to resume watching where I left off impairs the enjoyment of great movies.
I really wish that producers would think about their customers than their advertising office. Because of having to watch the crummy trailers and not being able to resume the movie where I stopped, I would not buy this set again nor would I have bought it in the first place if I knew these problems existed.
Update: I finally watched the fourth movie, Sand Pebbles. That disk didn't have the problems that the other three have. It was pleasant to be able to watch a movie with out trailers for other movies and to be able to stop the movie and be able come back to the stopping point with out fighting the BleRay set up. I raised my rating to two stars because this disk was done right.
Even his wartime presence is filled with half hearted salutes, visible disdain for combat troops resting after hard fought battles and the perils and hardships of being a common foot soldier.
Yes, he's supposed to be a tireless foe of the enemy, but he's so disagreeable, and so abusive to his own troops it's nearly impossible to have any empathy or even respect for him as a man.
Maybe he was 'the man for the moment' but he was quickly maneuvered out of the chain of command when more competent tacticians and commanders were available.
He's the reason we as the human race, forget the names of 'great leaders' and instead laud the works of poets, mathematicians, scientists, and artists.
Our bully beat up your bully, now lets get on with the task of living, and loving, and enjoying life.
