Who is this box for?
on August 27, 2012
I defy anyone to tell me what these 25 movies have in common--other than that they were produced/distributed by Universal Studios. This isn't a well-curated collection, just a bunch of movies that a lot of different audiences will like, but there is no audience who is going to have a taste for all of these films. "All Quiet on the Western Front" and "Mama Mia!"? OK.... And if you can find me anyone who's going to finish "Pillow Talk" then pop in "The Fast and the Furious," I'd love to meet him/her.
Instead, this set seems to be akin to the world's most expensive box of chocolates--something for everybody, but nothing for any one person. It's something that a great aunt with a lot of cash would give as a birthday gift: "I heard you like movies, so here are a bunch of movies."
