"When the primary attraction to a product is that you are getting a $300 "value" for $75, you likely aren't. Ask yourself how they can afford to stay in business, if this truly is a $300 "value". In my opinion, this 20 disc set isn't even worth $20.
The included titles, hardly are ones to take advantage of the benefits of Blu-ray in the first place, let alone ones that are considered highly desirable. At $3.75 per disc, you would be better off looking for inexpensive DVDs, and making sure that your Blu-ray player will also play DVDs. Then, buy the titles you actually want, as opposed to the titles that are being "dumped" at a "fire sale".
The whole purpose of Blu-ray is to offer the capability of having more special features, and higher quality for today's 1080p TVs and projectors. This set defeats that core purpose pretty handily. Never mind the fact that all of these titles are movies that didn't sell well to begin with.
The included titles are:
1. The Big White
3. Category 7: The End of the World
5. Cruel World
6. The Colt
7. The Last Sentinel
8. Mysterious Island
9. Beer League
11. The Poseidon Adventure
12. Final Days of Planet Earth
13. The Woods Have Eyes
14. 10.5 Apocalypse
15. The Final Patient
16. The Ten Commandments
17. Salem Witch Trials
19. Angel in the Family
20. The Curse of King Tut's Tomb
Amazon even has a 10-disc version of this set that is cheaper, per disc! So, what's the point of getting THIS version? Save your money! Let wasteful spending be an exclusive purview of politicians."

"At $75 that's $3.75 a movie... Here are the IMDB ratings (as of 12/23/08) so you can see how good these movies are. (most are made for TV, around 2005, and the "starring" seems to mean cameo half the time)

3.6 Supernova starring Luke Perry
4.4 Category 7: The End of the World starring Shannen Doherty
3.6 Mortuary, directed by Tobe Hooper
4.0 Cruel World starring Jaime Pressly

"If you are looking to buy a gift or a few movies for someone who wants Blu-ray movies, you HAVE TO KEEP LOOKING. I would not buy this cube if it was $20.00, I don't think I would buy it for $10.00. These are overpriced movies that are so bad, I still can't believe that they wasted all of that plastic to produce these movies and package them and the ink for the covers. Seriously, the title selection is very very very bad. These are movies that no one bought on DVD at the $2.00 DVD sale. If you were to give this gift to someone, they would see that the box says Bluecube and their heart may begin to skip a beat with excitement, which would quickly give way to a huge dissappointment. Merry Christmas!"
Are You Kidding????!!
