"The specs on Amazon are incorrect. I was hoping to finally get Witches in a widescreen anamorphic presentation. I just received this DVD, and the package states that all four are presented in Full screen only. I am sending it back to Amazon for credit."
Three of the four films are very worthwhile

"The four films in this 2-disc collection are:
1. The Neverending Story (1984) - A rather uneven childrens' movie. Parts of it are quite dark, and parts of it seem to be aiming to be a Muppet movie. The special effects were good for its time, but for some reason it has a very 80's feel to it although it is a fantasy film.
2. The Witches (1990) - I believe that this was Jim Henson's last film before his untimely death. A boy overhears a group of witches scheming, and when he is discovered they turn him into a mouse. He then has to save the day while still in the form of a mouse.
3. The Secret Garden (1993) - A young girl's parents are killed in an earthquake and she is sent to live with her uncle who is still mourning the death of his wife after ten years. There she finds an overrun garden that was her aunt's, a sickly cousin that has been told to stay indoors at all times, and a servant boy who becomes her close friend. She and her new friend work to unravel a mystery about her uncle's estate and her new home.
4. Five Children & It (2004) - The newest film in the bunch is probably the weakest. It's not terrible, it's just not very interesting."
