I didn't know there was a 4th Blade movie. These sets don't have the extras other individual releases do, right?

Most of these seem to have plenty of extras, according to the back cover scans, probably the same extras that the individual releases have. I'm guessing the Batman Collection will have all the same extras that are on disc 1 of the individual 2-disc SE releases.

4th blade movie has something to do with the series. Might be the first episode or the pilot. I tried to watch it but couldn't get into it.

I'll be getting the Batman and Oceans pack.

I'm in for Police Academy, Blade & Batman sets for sure. These are very cheap ways to get movies if you don't care about extras (which I don't)

Re: More WB 4 Film Favorites Collections on the way

I might be interested in a few of these. Of course, I'll probably wait until they're available for less than $10 before I bite.

Interested in the Batman, Ocean's, Police Academy 1-4, Cop Comedy Collections but will probably wait until it's on sale some place for under $10 (like the current WB 4 Film's were at Target recently)

Yea, the 'fourth' movie is just the pilot for the TV series, and it's included in the 'Blade: The Series' set.

The Batman and Blade sets are no go for me because they lose second discs (all of the Batman's and Blade 2 and 3 each had two discs). I may upgrade for Ocean's and Austin Powers sets, and will get the Police Academy sets.

Some nice sets here. Are these on seperate discs, or 1 movie per side,etc?
I might jump on those Police Academy collections.

Re: More WB 4 Film Favorites Collections on the way

So far they've been two-disc sets, with one movie per side.

The nice thing about these is they're real space-savers. The only problem with some of them is you have to take a "lesser" film, sometimes even a downright dog, to get the three you might consider keepers. Still, for $10 (which seems to be the regular price at Target, at least), it's a small price to pay to regain some room in your house!

Actually, it'd be nice to see four "numbers" pictures from the Rat Pack collection (including Ocean's 11) eventually make their way to the Four Film Favourites line.

Anyone have ideas for other combos? I'd like to see more classics, but I suppose we have the TCM line for that.

I hope you don't mean the 2-disc Batman's since those are OOP.

I might be interested in the Ocean's movies, the Police Academy movies and House Party (although I believe HP4 doesn't have Kid N' Play)

Re: More WB 4 Film Favorites Collections on the way

I'm tempted by the Blade set, but curious to see which extra features get ported over, as well as whether or not Trinity is unrated.

Re: More WB 4 Film Favorites Collections on the way

I wouldn't mind picking up the Bruce Willis and Police Academy sets. I want the Cop Comedy one, because I like Police Academy 5, but knowing it's full frame kinda kills my interest.

I'll probably get the Police Academy and Chris Tucker set. I wouldn't take the Batman set if you paid me; Returns is the only film I really liked of that series.

They were re-printed (and released separately on Blu-Ray) in the Spring. Last year was the time to unload them for the highest earnings.

Back cover art with specs are available for all of these (except for the Batman set I think) over at dvdempire.com just FYI.

Some good ones there. I'll have to keep my eye on them.

Hopefully Target will put them at $10, like their other ones are.

Re: More WB 4 Film Favorites Collections on the way

I wish they'd do one for the Vacation movies. I'd love to trade my old full-frame versions and their corresponding snappers for a one-case set like this.

What's weird is, I just found out today they did that in Canada (see here) I actually thought it was going to be one of the ones in this new batch.

Re: More WB 4 Film Favorites Collections on the way

These sets are my favorite, but I only have the Lethal Weapon one. I plan on getting the Superman one during DD's 25% off sale

I will probably pick up Batman because I only have those on VHS. I own Blade II, and Oceans 13 but I might just upgrade to the 4 Film sets.
