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!
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.Read more ›
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.
