Excerpt: This boxset has been well worth the wait, the picture and sound restoration of the original trilogy are next to none. Every sound, every frame has had the greatest of care taken when being restored, resulting in a fanatastic, mesmorising experience that is just as good, if not better, than the first time we saw Dr Jones going toe-to-toe with the Nazi's with all whip-drawn, gun-slinging action!
Summary: I got the DVD's and they were great. Overstock got them to me in a timely manner. The only negative is if you buy the oridinal three in a set and buy the fourth one seperately, you can save yourself around 5 dollars. This is through the overstock website. Not sure why that is. I purchased the pack of 4 and it was more expensive.
Summary: This was perfect, the quality was great, and to have all of the discs together in one container was nice to keep up with. I have 5 boys and they love to sit and watch it with me. There weren't enough stars for the value, I bought this for about 60.00 dollars, and then I thought maybe I over paid, and then I did more reaserch and decided that it was the best deal in town, I would have spent 80-100 dollars somewhere else! This was great!!
Indiana Jones - The Complete Adventures Collection
5 November 2008
Summary: So wonderful to have the entire series on DVD now. Spielberg's only error was not placing the previous three movies on cable prior to last movie opening this year...he would have had so many more viewers interested in seeing "Indy" and a new adventure once again. Today's kids don't know the joy of the past three movies and would have looked forward to this one, particularly with the familiar face of Shia Lebouf coming into Indy's life...and Marian returning...forever.
Conclusion: I'm not going to reveiw the films - we have all seen them and love them. The blu ray transfer - especially on the much older first 3 films - is fantastic. Sharp, crisp, the colours are brilliant. The sound is also excellent, great surround sound, a very well done transfer. If i had one critisism, it would be about the packaging.
Conclusion: I think everybody already needs to know everything there is is about these fantastic films, so I won't bother reviewing the movies themselves. Firstly, yes, for the first time ever in the UK, Temple of Doom has been reclassified with a 12 certificate and is released fully uncut. The movie now features the complete uncensored sacrificial and Shortround getting tortured scenes as well as several other bits that were previously edited.
Conclusion: At last, probably the greatest action adventure movies of all time on Bluray. Based on the info available and the amount of restoraton involved with getting this set together and for it to look and sound as it should do, this should be priceless...here's to hoping it is and was worth waiting for....
