That Dances With Wolves set is classy. Some of that other stuff is just too much. But hey, if you got cash and shelf space to spare a little indulgence is nice.

Most of the SE in France are top notch design.

The Band of Brothers set is only $80.00 US at KoreanDVDs.com, which is around the same price as the region 1 set.

Trigger 02-22-04 10:46 PM

someone convince me to buy Band of Brothers - is it a good show?

Bill Geiger 02-22-04 11:03 PM

I bought it, never watched it. Got it for 16 bucks when Suncoast.com had their big screwup. I sold it for $70.00. Heard is was good though. :)

Band of Brothers is an excellent miniseries, if you enjoyed the opening sequence of Saving Private Ryan there is a sequence like that in every episode.

Cornfed 02-23-04 03:21 AM

I hate to turn this into a Band of Brothers discussion so I will say this: Go ahead and buy it.

I would say it is the best piece of war cinema I own on DVD. I would definitely put it above Saving Private Ryan and any other war movie made in recent years. I got mine R1 set for about $50.

pat00139 02-23-04 07:23 AM

I haven't got any pictures, but I have the Blood: The Last Vampire LE. It's a huge box with the script, animation book and a lot of other stuff. The new Bruce Lee Collection from Korea also also super-sweet. Looks like a book and has a very nice design. That Dogville LE is also supernice.

Damn, those are some nice looking sets! And we get big heads on our DVD's...

Merdalf 02-23-04 09:34 AM

@All who post these nice editions. Would you please inlcude a link to shop where you can order these, if they are not OOP - that would be really great!

RaMMaR 02-23-04 09:55 AM

:drool:-ing @ the Korean Bruce Lee Set. i upgraded from "The Master Collection" to the HKL "30th Anniversary Collection" (+ bonus disk) last year - now this comes along? -ohbfrank- Somebody please give me a reason NOT to order this!

Also :drool:-worthy is that Japanese Hero gifstset/diorama. Given the high price of most Japanese collectibles, i'm almost afraid to ask... how much?

RichDB10 02-23-04 10:00 AM

I don't have any pictures either but the Japanese Neon Genesis Evangelion Renewal boxset is another impressive example of packaging.
One of my favourites is also the French 4 disc edition of Le Pacte Des Loups (Brotherhood Of The Wolf) which as i don't know how to post pics :D our resident expert of all things French (pro-bassoonist) may do the honours if i ask nicely ;)

To answer the question from the German member- all of the French sets are available through FNAC.com, Amazon.fr, or Alapage.fr

RichDB10 02-23-04 10:32 AM

Pleasure....and thanks :up:

fnordboy 02-23-04 10:48 AM

Does anyone know if the Fellini set above has english subtitles on the 4th disc (A Self-Potrait Of Federico Fellini)? I see that the other movies have English and Korean subs, but my buying it depends on that 4th disc having subs or being in English.

Thanks.

BlackBeauty92 02-23-04 11:53 AM
