Love this movie! Not only does it have great actors/actresses (Mickey Rooney, Helen Reddy), it has some great music...fun to sing a long for kids, and teaches great lessons while still keeping you interested in the plot!

Terry Gilliam's BRAZIL is about the wildest 142 minute ride imaginable. Think 1984 done as a perverse but charming comedy. Jonathan Pryce plays Sam Lowry, a bored but efficient bureaucrat, whose vivid dream life helps compensate for his dull but harried reality. Jill Layton (the elusive Kim Greist) is the woman who haunts his dreams before they ever meet. Theirs is one of the oddest and most beguiling romantic pairings ever captured on celluloid. It's a romance that mirrors the absurdity of the fantastical, dysfunctional universe that is BRAZIL. That Criterion chose BRAZIL to be part of its elite collection of films is understandable, considering the grandiosity of its vision. And this eye-popping high-definition digital transfer brings all of it's lush, baroque imagery into hyper-focus, making for an exquisite viewing experience surpassed by none.

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.

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.

This is a great review of the team of two very talented actors and singer/musicians. I enjoyed every minute of the movies and commentary. Great feel good DVDs.

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!

What can be said about Judy garland......Incredible voice, Incredible TALENT!!!!! The whole package is worth her preformance of " Embracable You" in Girl Crazy. Oh, yeah. Mickey Rooney is there too.

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.

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

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!

A great movie - a Classic for all ages- Mickey Rooney and a young Elizabeth Taylor are among the astounding actors.

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!

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.

This is a gift for my 90 yr old Mother...who is a great fan of these stars.When I saw them all on one DVD I knew it was a must have for her.Perry Como, Judy Garland, Mickey Rooney...all favorites.The reason for not giving 5 stars is because the sound faded a few times..and it would just not be the kind of thing to suit "everyone"The classic "I Wish I were In Love Again " with Garland and Rooneywas worth the price!

I recommend this collection to fans of old public domain movies. Not quite as good as the 50 Mystery Classics Movie Pack, but good enough. The films are all from the 1930's to the 1960's so I doubt that anyone but the most sensitive viewers will be scared by them even though they are called Dark Crimes. The drawbacks are that 6 of the "movies" are actually TV plays of the STUDIO ONE ilk (entertaining, but I prefer feature films). Many of the movies have some edits in them but at least two (THINGS HAPPEN AT NIGHT and GUEST IN THE HOUSE ) have a lot of footage missing from the original theatrical releases. Also, since these are public domain titles the print quality ranges from decent to mediocre. If you insist on KINO or Criterion DVD quality prints, you'll be disappointed. Finally, there is a Mill Creek Entertainment logo that pops up in the corner of the screen at times that may annoy some people. Overall a very good deal for the money.

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.

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.
