I haven't bought it yet, but the reviews affirmed my beliefs that it was an amazing DVD set.

Maybe not the "most" comprehensive, but the Hellboy 3-Disc Director's Cut was a pretty sweet set.

Star Wars is pretty effing far from being complete. The lack of an anamorphic transfer on the original theatrical versions is a start.

Havent seen this posted but in my opinion Planet of the Apes with the Ape Head will be a good contender. It includes everything from the tv show to all version of the movie and comes in a cool packaging.

didn't say it was complete, but you cannot deny that the 3 movies with gorgeous video and audio (regardless if the are SE), commentaries on all, and a 4th disc with a docu of 2:30 hrs and then still other featurettes and goodies isn't pretty comprehensive.

Yeah, I agree with the guy who said Fanny and Alexander. The three and five hour versions of the film, a commentary on the three hour, Bergman's own, grand making-of doc, and well over two hours of otherwise special features. Plus a nifty booklet.

As for multiple film boxed sets...New Line's Harold Lloyd set contains almost all of the man's films; shorts and features, save only a handful. And a wealth of extras.

My pick goes to Disney's Platinum release of Aladdin. Great movie, reference video, remastered and original audio tracks (both in 5.1), superb limited packaging, and surprisingly in-depth and candid bonus features.

This made me laugh out loud. I'm sorry I did, but really, there are quite a few documentaries related to the films that haven't even been released in 15 years. Off the top of my head, I can think of a few:

-Clapperboard ESB Special
-Classic Creatures: Return Of The Jedi
-From Star Wars To JediL Making of A Saga
-SP/FX: Empire Strikes Back
-The Making Of ESB (Michel Parbot documentary)
-Everything that came with the Executor VHS box set that was released years ago, which (if I remembered correctly) featured specials on the Lucasfilm Archive, the stop-motion AT/ST's, and more
-Special on John Williams composing and scoring the music to ESB
-All the footage from the "Lost Cut", the sandstorm sequence from ROTJ, the droid ship cut scene from Attack Of The Clones, and God knows what else

However, I digress. I'm just a completist.

You guys have pretty much mentioned anything that I would list: The Superman Ultimate Collection, The LOTR Extended Editions, Alien Quadrology, Matrix Ultimate Collector's Edition Box Set, Back to The Future Trilogy, Clerks X, Star Wars, 3-Disc Wizard Of Oz (which I have yet to buy)...

Did anyone mention The Frighteners? I don't recall seeing it on anyone's list, but I may have missed it.

This thread makes me want to watch a bunch of "making of " documentaries.

Good picks. I agree with the BACK TO THE FUTURE nods as well, I've been working on that set since FEBRUARY and I'm still not done yet.

I would throw in one of my favorite dvds, Blade 2 - two disc. The dvd contains hours of bonus features including a video diary log showing how the effects and props were put together. Very enjoyable even if you hated the film.
