The ultimate case for the ultimate super-hero franchise: The Avengers! This is the start of an epic (and no doubt lucrative) silver screen journey by Marvel Studios, sure to span a few decades. I was already a fan of Iron Man and the Avengers as a child in the 1980s. I was extremely excited when Iron Man finally made it to the big screen, and even more so when the 'after-credit teasers' hinted at all these heroes coming together for an unprecedented team-up! I must say that Kevin Feige (one of the masterminds behind Marvel Studios) is a genius. Now on to the box set itself. The actual case is of a decent design. A bit more cartoony and gaudy compared to the original design used in the movie. The original case being designed by that greedy luggage company that should remain nameless. Needless to say, I have never bought anything from that company, and now will actively avoid them. There is a little button on top of the case that makes the SHIELD logo light up when pressed. The interior lights up as depicted in the picture when you open up the case, then automatically shuts off when closed. The LED lights are powerful and give off an eerie glow. Well done in the effects department. The Tesseract is cool but a little cheap-looking. I would have preferred something a little more translucent to mimic the object in the movies. This one is opaque-white. It has two levels of flashing when you tap it against your palm. Note: you need to tap quite hard! I thought it was broken initially because I was tapping too gently and nothing was happening. The fake circuitry and buttons in the case also looked a little cheap, but it's adequate for the money. The reproduced 'classified files' on each of the characters is where I am impressed. They contain near-perfect replicas of newspaper clippings, ID badges, photographs, research documents, drivers licenses, schematics of the various heroes in all 6 movies. They are a perfect compliment to the movies! I especially enjoyed the application forms, rejection letters, sketches and photos of Steve Rogers from the Captain America movie. There is even a 'top secret' special sealed package for the latest SHIELD recruit (that would be you) to open up and decipher. If and when you figure it out, you will have the privilege to uncover additional classified data! Not too difficult to figure out, so I won't give it away. I thought this was a neat touch. And they didn't include instructions to spoon-feed it either. It's a genuine find-the-clue exercise. For those who complain about the quality of the materials used for the actual case: this is where the money was spent. And it was worth it. Many more hours of enjoyment beyond the movies. My only gripe is that the blu-rays are housed in cardboard sleeves. The artwork and designs on the sleeves are actually well-done, but I would rather the discs be protected and secured in proper plastic cases. It feels kind of unfinished that so much effort was put into designing and producing all the various pieces for the set, only to have the discs in cardboard. Overall I would still have to give it a 5 star rating due to the impressive extras, but if the discs had proper cases and the Tesseract were better-designed, it would actually be PERFECT!

My teen daughter and I love Gilmore Girls and now she has the complete series. Although this was our least favorite season, we watched it end with a heavy heart. We thought of the characters and settings as almost a parallel universe to our family, friends and neighbors. The writers had changed and the way the lives of the character progressed was not Gilmore-like. Mostly, Lorelai would never have gone back to Chris. It made the ever independent yet fun-loving Lorelai seem too needy. I could go on-and-on about the things that were out of character (literally) but that would take more time than I have. If you followed the show or get the series and begin to follow it you will understand.

This is a revealing insight into a culture that most will never experience and we should be thankful for that. Although the problems of the main character are universal, the way it is dealt with is almost unbelievable. Women will be drawn into Soraya's story and understand her. When the movie is over, many women will recall the historic struggles that we faced in this country and the true ramifications of chattel property.

Good movie at a good price. The movie was on sale and came quickly prior to Christmas. It turned out to be a great family present.

As an avid fan of science fiction films, I was excited to see Star Trek and find out how it all began. The movie is generally entertaining, but it doesn't follow the continuity flow it should have. When time was altered by the enemy coming through the black hole, it really ruined the value I have for continuity. Now the movie is very action packed. By itself it would be a Great movie. However you have to realize we are dealing with the Star Trek universe. As soon as the movie begins the enemy enters the focused on time period from their future. Their future being the Next Generation time, last seen in the final Next Generation Film. Now I have a real problem with this movie, as it alters the past therefore creating a new Timeline. What? What about all the Cannon Star Trek Movies and TV Series? Are they now all erased, In another Reality altogether. This is the One problem I have with this film and Therefore all Sequils that will come out. However as it;s own Entity - One Film it Entertains. Plain and simple, It Entertains.

A little more than anticipated, watch amazon often a little better value, stores are more. Some vendors less but poor experience with small shippers some times, hassle to get money back. Delivery is about. Week for us on this one.

I got this 10 disk set for my birthday and it was even better in person. My only critique with the product would be the plastic tabs to open the case they are a little hard to get open and feels like they could break if your not careful. One other small critique would be the cardboard sleeves the disks come in seem to get minor nicks on the edges from sliding them in and out. But over all this product is one word AWESOME, and I would recommend it to any fan of the Marvel films.

Great price, great service, quick delivery! I purchased this as a birthday present and was originally concerned with receiving it in time. However, received the movie in six days.

I remember seeing Buster Crabbe as Flash Gordon as an early teen, enjoying the serials every Saturday with my friends. I never dreamed I would be able to get it now and enjoy it all over again. This is a classic 30's black and white adventure with handsome hero, dastardly villain and pretty damsels in distress in an off-world setting. It is a good foundation for the Star Trek and Star Wars films which have followed.

It's a great pre-quel to Monsters INC., telling how Mike and Sully became friends. It was great fun, with a lot of laughs.

This movie is the wrap-up of the series Firefly and is a truly entertaining movie. The characters we got to know and love in Firefly are further developed and the movie is a great way to spend an evening.

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.

Good Humphrey Bogart movie, He is Sam Spade the private eye.....has Peter Lorre and the Fat Man in it, good to see the whole movie from beginning to end, not like when it is shown on TV and so much is cut out of it. Also came with a Bette Davis earlier version of this story which I have not seen yet.
