This is a beautifully boxed set of all 12 Sherlock homes movies - just as we remember them when we were children - only better! The files have been lovingly restored and beautifully presented in the wonderful box set. The featured commentary on the difficulties of the restoration project itself is also very interesting. You'll have hours of fun watching Mr. Holmes and his beloved side-kick Watson chase down their nemesis Professor Moriarity and other sinister villains. Classic works such as "The Hounds of the Baskervilles" and the Scarlet Claw" are as entertaining now and look as good as the day they first were released. I'm thrilled own this set of fine films, and I'm sure any Sherlock Holms fan would be equally happy to have the entire collection at their disposal to view over and over again. Buy it!

I loved the series when it was on FOX. Watching the DVD's have brought back so many great memories! The subtle humor kept me laughing through all 5 of the discs. When I was finished, I started to watch it again just for the sheer entertainment! Follow the series up with the movie Serenity. I still can't believe that the network took this show off the air! It is a classic!

A gift for a 4yr old. As soon as she got home she wanted to watch. It has five different stories so she was entertained.

This is a great product as the women of Hootersville entertain in that sweet almost Southern way. Demonstrating the many traits that women have to live a full life showing appreciation for the decision to stay home and raise children or to pursue a career. Hopefully, Overstock will eventually pick up the whole series of 222 episodes as found on the Ultimate DVD Shop.

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!

Of course, this story is speculative. I've heard many versions of how John and Paul got together in the mid 70s. "Two Of Us" is about what may have transpired when Paul dropped by John's home while he was visiting New York City, and what a day spent together (while Yoko is out of town) may have been like. This movie is very well done: the director also made the "Let It Be" film, so he was with The Beatles when they were at each other's throats. The acting is convincing; the two actors did their homework. I later found out from some people that had met Lennon in New York that he pretty much acted the way he is portrayed here. Recomended to Beatles fans.

This was an excellent movie. One I will watch over and over again. The story line is very timely. The photogrophy was excellent. Really brought home what we are loosing by not paying attention to our planet. Denis Quaid was very good in his roll. The science was very easy to understand while very entertaining. Every one should watch this movie.

Iwe love Overstock, are always amazed at the prices, the quality is so pleasent, and the shipping so quick. The DVD's purchased, Revelations, are our type of entertainment. If you like Da Vinci Code type story lines, you'll like this. Get yourself some popcorn and settle in for an enjoyable home entertainment.

If you like "Sabrina" I would recommend this collection. It's a great value to buy it all together. This is such a fun show to be able to watch whenever you want! There is a note on the back cover of each set put there by the manufacturer that says "some episodes may be edited from their original network versions. Some music has been changed for this home entertainment version." It has been a while since I watched the show on tv, but so far, I haven't noticed anything new or unusual. It is still just a fun show!

Like the 1st reviewer, I saw this on VHS. It is a Classic. Showing different perspectives from the young boy, his teen-aged sister; Don Ameche's character; to the 'bounty-hunter's. What would it be like to have a huge, hairy, friendly and uneducated guest in your home? Knowing he/it cannot remain there - - you come up with plans to assist him with what his desires are for his future. Harry wants to be helpful as well. From my grandchildren to myself and ages, in between; my highest recommendation.

I have seen this show on televison and think that some of the content is inappropriate for both children and adults because it teaches them that playing with the feelings of someone whom you have no good intentions towards is acceptable. When in fact this kind of behavior is wrong and hurtful to the one on the receiving end of such treatment. I ordered it for home entertainment thinking that i would be able to by pass those episodes that highlights this bahavior and get to the few that contained more positive messages. But i was unable to keep the dvd because it was scratched and smeared pretty badly upon opening.

Great video, suitable for both adults and children. "The Rock" shines in his role as Dad, with very funny results. Wonderful film for an evening's entertainment at home with the kids.

Star Trek Voyager is my favorite of the Star Trek franchise. I think what appeals to me is that, unlike the other series that basically have them tooling around in their own little quadrant of the galaxy, Voyager is flung to an extraordinarily distant quadrant with little hope of getting back in their lifetime. The underlying mission of getting home along with the Star Trek standard fare gave more meaning to them being out there. The character of The Doctor was always entertaining, and once they brought in Seven-of-Nine and phased out Kes (never liked her) the series really took off, as she was easy on the eyes as well and very logical to complement the Vulcan Tuvok (the logical characters in all Star Trek were my favorites). The only disappointment with the DVD collection is the cheap cases. They are basically storybook style jewels in different colors held together with really strong tape. Voyager was never fully accepted in Trekdom, and this is reflected in the distributor spending the barest minimum on the collection.About the case, I had ordered all seasons individually over time from a "competitor" web site as they went on and off sale, and the case was always broken on #5. I asked if they could specifically inspect a copy before they send it, and they said no. After the fourth broken case (I think someone dropped the whole shipment at their warehouse), they told me that I would probably never be pleased and to go shop somewhere else! Gratefully, Overstock has their price matching program and was glad to do business with me. The copy is flawless.

This movie is a modern Wes Craven feature about a serial killer who envades his victims homes through their television sets after he is put to death via the electric chair.The cast was good and the plot was entertaining. Its a fun , but unbelievable story.

We invited some good friends over to watch this video. We laughed until we cried. I can't wait to have another dinner party and show it to some more friends. I am giving it to my son in college to give him a break from his grueling studies. We have children under 13. We did not let them watch it. Recommend viewing when children are not at home or busy with their own entertainment.

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

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!

All of the other reviews have stated what I think. What was Fox thinking when they stopped this series? I like this show from the get go. Wish it would have lasted longer. Great entertainment.

I'm not going into plot details because I want to emphasize that this is an excellent movie for adults, kids, or with a significant other on a "stay at home" night. This is not a hard-core intellectual film, but a very charming and entertaining story perfectly suited for a relaxed night of viewing with a big bowl of popcorn. As an added bonus, the soundtrack matches the time period very well and adds to the background texture of the viewing experience. If taken for what it is, and not held up for comparison with deeply intellectual films, this is an extremely enjoyable film. For these reasons I've put this among my top 10 favorite films in my fairly large collection of DVDs.
