I first saw this movie by coincidence on cable. I had never heard of it before. It was very entertaining and many parts kept you guessing as to what was really the intentions of the main character played by Kirk Douglas. Kirk Douglas plays an eccentric millionaire trying to decide who should inherit his money and estate while he is still living because he fears he is losing his memory. His relatives are all phony and he knows it. Michael Fox plays his estranged nephew who is summoned by the other relatives to convince the old man to give his estate to them,however, the old guy decides to give it to the nephew and then the sparks really begin to fly. All the members of my family enjoyed this movie so much they all bought a copy for themselves. I highly recommend it!

One simply can't go wrong with Criterion films. This incredible offering delivers plenty of chills and some genuinely horrific images sure to haunt your dreams. As usual with the titles in the Criterion Collection, this disc has plenty of special features. The booklet that comes with the disc explains that the film was released in America (dubbed in English, with some "objectionable" scenes cut) under the title "The Horror Chamber of Dr. Faustus", which is the version I remember seeing on late-night TV when I was a kid. This is the real-deal here!

I recommend films from the Criterion Collection to anyone who cares about art, photography and cinema in general. This one was from the great director Bergman. I gave it as a gift to a film snob. He loved it. Fantastic price.

this movie is one of my all time favorites of all time! The cast is amazing, (Gwyneth Paltrow, Bill Murray, Angelica Huston, Gene Hackman, Danny Glover, Ben Stiller, and Luke and Owen Wilson), the cinematography and soundtrack are superb. The script is one to die for. Couldn't ask for more from Wes Anderson. It's a movie everyone should purchase and watch!

This is one of the best films ever made. A great translation of the rock opera Quadrophenia by The Who. It doesn't go to the extremes like Ken Russell's Tommy. It is an excellent study of individuality and tribalism and the isolation within both. How does one remain a individual while being part of a tribe? Do we try to stand out by being part of a group? How much of our identity do we lose to the group? Excellent soundtrack with the music of The Who and 50's & 60's rock. Like the film Two Lane Blacktop, DVD's and VHS copies of this film commanded high prices on auction and other sites so I was glad to see that the film was given the Criterion Collection treatment.

Good price. Shipped quickly. Some of the box sets have an older disk in them. Go to the Criterion colleciton website to ask for a new one.

What can I say? I LOVE this movie! I grew up watching it at my grandmother's on VHS and now that I'm grown with 4 boys, I love it even more. Kirk Douglas (Ned) is as effervescent and charming as ever and James Mason (Captain Nemo), is superb. This movie is full of adventure and a delight to watch every time! The DVD quality is great and I wouldn't hesitate to gift this to any family I know. I think it makes an excellent Christmas gift for almost anyone. And the price is great! A "Whale of a Tale!"

When we first saw this movie, we were astonished. We had never seen Kirk Douglas in any but serious roles. This movie is one of our all-time favorites. The Roadrunner takeoff is brilliant.

I received my copy of The Last Emperor in a very timely fashion. The movie, itself, is a very interesting review of pre-Maoist China set IN Maoist China. All of the actors did an excellent job and, of course, the scenery was beautiful. I would recommend this movie to anyone with an interest in China and/or history.

Criterion put a fantastic package together. To see these great movies in all of their high definition remastered glory really is a treat. Invite some friends over to your very own film school.

My daughter, who is only 5 1/2, loves dinosaurs. I introduced her to Godzilla 2000 about 2ys ago. Now that she is in kindergarten, she wants to be Godzilla when she grows up. Even though this DVD is in Japenese, we both love it. It has english subtitles but all you really need is to watch the picture to know what's happening. Great series

The Rock. One of my favorite action movies. Humor, military action, Sean Connery in his first major comeback role. San Fancisco vistas as the backdrop. If you want the highest resolution DVD version of this film, this is it. Its recored at a higher bitrate than the regular DVD meaning sharper picture. But is still faithful to the movie version. Many AV geeks will say that blu-ray over sharpens, over saturates colors, and changes the film from the movie version to show off the capabilities of blue ray, but it also changes what the director intended for the movie version. With a high quality upconverting DVD player from Oppo, and a decent home theatre setup, this DVD holds its own against any bluray and still remains faithful to the Director's original movie version.

Good movie. I read the reviews and was more than satisfied with what I got. How the academy missed this one, I don't know. Quick delivery, no issues. Just wish that Overstock would slow down on the almost daily emails that I get from them. I want to know about deals yes, but not EVERY SINGLE DAY!
