Just re-packaging of DVD Sets I imagine, some of these can be found under $10 separately now. I'd consider the Sci-Fi one once it goes on sale though

OMG, "The Neptune Factor" is in the Sci-Fi set. I saw it as a kid and thought it was soooo cool. Now, it's just very laughable at best. It's not even a so-bad-it's-fun movie.

Too many 'already have-ems" in each set, but if you're starting out in a particular genre, seems like a good way to go.

Cue up the usual "If this is the Ultimate [genre] set, why doesn't it have [non-Fox title]?" complaints

Why don't they concentrate on the hundreds of titles they need to release rather than these useless re-hashes? Do people at MGM and Fox really get paid to make stupid marketing decisions like this?

I hope Red River is a special edition. Or at least a remaster.

Ugh.

I doubt it. I'm holding out for an eventual Criterion release.
