Editorial Reviews

THE ENGLISH PATIENT: Winner of 9 Academy Awards® including Best Picture, Best Director (Anthony Minghella) and Best Supporting Actress (Juliette Binoche), THE ENGLISH PATIENT is a "fiercely romantic" (THE NEW YORK TIMES) epic where love knows no boundaries. During World War II, a mysterious stranger (Ralph Fiennes) is cared for by British allies unaware of his dangerous past. Yet, as the mystery of his identity is revealed, an incredible tale of passion, intrigue and adventure unfolds. Also starring Kristin Scott Thomas, Colin Firth and Willem Dafoe, this powerful motion picture is an experience you will never forget. SHAKESPEARE IN LOVE: Love is the only inspiration in this witty, sexy smash starring Oscar winner Gwyneth Paltrow among an all-star Academy Award®-winning cast including Judi Dench, Geoffrey Rush, Colin Firth and Ben Affleck. When Will Shakespeare (Joseph Fiennes) needs passionate inspiration to break a bad case of writer's block, a secret romance with the beautiful Lady Viola (Paltrow) starts the words flowing like never before! There are just two things he'll have to learn about his new love: not only is she promised to marry someone else, she's successfully impersonating a man in order to play the lead in Will's latest production! Triumphant winner of 7 Academy Awards® including Best Picture, SHAKESPEARE IN LOVE is "a visual treat" (SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE) that will leave you hungry for more. NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN: Acclaimed filmmakers Joel and Ethan Coen deliver their most gripping and ambitious film yet in this sizzling and supercharged action- thriller. When a man stumbles on a bloody crime scene, a pickup truck loaded with heroin, and two million dollars in irresistible cash, his decision to take the money sets off an unstoppable chain reaction of violence. Not even west Texas law can contain it. Based on the novel by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Cormac McCarthy, and featuring an acclaimed cast led by Tommy Lee Jones, Josh Brolin and a tour-de-force performance from Javier Bardem, this gritty game of cat and mouse will take you to the edge of your seat and beyond right up to its heart-stopping final act. CHICAGO: Winner of 6 Academy Awards®, Chicago is a dazzling spectacle cheered by audiences and critics alike! At a time when crimes of passion result in celebrity headlines, nightclub sensation Velma Kelly (Catherine Zeta-Jones) and spotlight seeking Roxie Hart (Renée Zellweger) both find themselves sharing space on Chicago's famed Murderess Row! They also share Billy Flynn (Richard Gere), the town's slickest lawyer with a talent for turning notorious defendants into local legends. But in Chicago, there's only room for one legend! CRASH: This compelling urban thriller tracks the volatile intersection of a multiethnic cast of characters struggling to overcome their fears as they careen in and out of one another's lives. In the gray area between black and white, victim and aggressor, during the next 36 hours, they will all collide.

This isn't really a review, but as I thought the product description is lacking, I compiled this list of useful information on the films contained in this set. I hope this is helpful to you.

THE ENGLISH PATIENT: 1996 - 162 minutes - Director: Anthony Minghella - Starring: Ralph Fiennes, Kirsten Scott Thomas, Colin Firth - Genre: Drama, romance - Plot: As a nurse tends to a badly burned plane-crash victim, his past is shown in flashbacks, revealing a fateful love affair. R

SHAKESPEARE IN LOVE: 1998 - 123 minutes - Director: John Madden - Starring: Joseph Fiennes, Gwenyth Paltrow, Geoffrey Rush - Genre: Romance, history - Plot: A young Shakespeare, broke and out of ideas, meets a beautiful noble-woman, and is inspired to write one of his greatest plays. R

CHICAGO: 2002 - 113 minutes - Director: Rob Marshall - Starring: Renee Zellwegger, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Richard Gere - Genre: Musical, comedy - Plot: Two Broadway murderesses find themselves on Death Row, and with their corrupt lawyer, fight for the fame that will keep them from the gallows. PG-13

CRASH: 2004 - 112 minutes - Director: Paul Haggis - Starring: Don Cheadle, Sandra Bullock - Genre: Drama - Plot: The lives of vastly different Los Angeles citizens collide in a story of race, loss, and redemption. R

NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN: 2007 - 122 minutes - Director: Joel and Ethan Coen - Starring: Josh Brolin, Javier Bardem, Tommy Lee Jones - Genre: Crime, thriller - Plot: When a hunter stumbles onto more than 2 million in cash in a drug deal gone wrong, he becomes the next target for a ruthless and cold killer. R

Now let's crunch some numbers. This collection costs $8.75 and contains 5 films. When we divide to find the cost of the individual films, we find that one film costs a shocking $1.75, a steal so cheap it's practically criminal! This is an excellent price for a great set of films. I hope this information was helpful to you. Cheers!

All the movies have been great. My husband even loved Shakespeare in Love, which he wouldn't have chosen if not in a collection because it looked like it would be a major chick flick (we didn't think so at all).

The Best Picture Academy Awards Winners: Five Film Collection, is a really nice Blu-Ray set, even if what it captures are not some of the best movies to win the Oscar’s top prize. I find any movie that wins best picture kind of atomically gets a sort of unfair level scrutiny, especially by those whose favorite film didn’t win. Even if these may not be masterpieces, if one looks at these five movies as just something to watch, admire, and be entertained by, they’ll probably have a good time with most if not all of these films.

From my least favorite to most favorite of the films is as follows.

“Crash”. It would probably be my pick as the weakest film to win Best Picture in the last 25 years or so. That doesn’t make it bad, in fact it has some rather strong facets, particularly in regards to the performances with fine work done by Matt Dillon, Terrance Howard, Sandra Bullock & others. There are scenes and images of true power. Unfortunately, it overplays its hands, forcing coincidence on top coincidence in to attempt to tie all these stories together, and ultimately it comes off with a rather generic almost preachy kind of message. On tackling racial issues, it certainly can’t be put up there with the best of Spike Lee for instance. On the other hand, I suppose it makes some pretty good points. 7.5/10

“Shakespeare in Love”. This movie I think is really a lot of fun. At its heart is a love story between William Shakespeare in a turmoil trying to create his next play, and a woman of nobility who is to be given in marriage to someone else. Though both Paltrow and Fiennes as the leads give strong performances, I think the film’s most impressive part is how it transforms us the viewers to the late 16th century theater scene in a fascinating and most entertaining way.

The 5-disc blu-ray clamshell case has the typical leaflet posts... And yes mine arrived damaged and would be useless if it were not for my practice of mating each of the new blu-ray discs with their DVD counterparts in cases I buy in bulk that are more resilient. All apart of my creating my own Blu-ray / DVD combo sets.

Whoever decided that we needed a size change between blu-ray cases and standard DVD cases anyway? And what's with these blu-ray multi-disc leaflet style cases that exceed 22mm. It would be easier to have hub catch-posts that each held at least 2 discs stacked instead of merely one all packed inside a case not exceeding 12mm. Are you listening Amazon buyers? Your bulk buying leverage and dickering with the Studios could intercede to come up with a workable storage standard improving the current hoge-poge varied assortment of ticky-tacky blu-ray cases not circulating.
