Movie Reviews

Amazing collection of British Period Films!
scottmax | NC | 08/10/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I purchased this collection and all of the movies are terrific. They are well acted, beautifully portrayed, and the transfer to DVD in most cases is very good. One drawback is that only Pride & Predjudice comes in Widescreen, however. All of the other films are in Full Screen. There are not a lot of extras included with this set, save a few documentaries, but the movies themselves are so well done and enjoyable to watch that the set is very much worth having. If you enjoy grand period films of classic literature, then you will probably very much enjoy this excellent collection of A&E films. I especially enjoyed Pride & Predjudice, Lorna Doone,and Tom Jones."

"If you're an Anglophile, Brit lit fan, or someone who simply likes smart, classy, well-written, and well-acted films, buying this set should be a no-brainer. These films range from good (The Scarlet Pimpernel series) to excellent (Ivanhoe) to superb (Pride & Prejudice). If you're part of the A&E/Bravo/PBS/BBC set--and you know who you are :) --then you'll find plenty of your favorite authors here, like Austen, Scott, Fielding, and Bronte, and favorite British actors like Ciaran Hinds, Samantha Morton, Colin Firth, Jonathan Price, Peter Ustinov, Christopher Lee, Kate Beckinsale, Richard Grant, and so on.All told, despite very minimal DVD extras, this is a superb collection that will repay you with many hours of enjoyment. If you like this one, be sure to check out A&E's Horatio Hornblower series for more engrossing period drama."
Well worth it...

"Pride and Prejudice makes it worth it... The ability to watch and rewatch Colin Firth on DVD; simply wonderful... Lorna Doone is an extremely good story... Victoria and Albert was great... However, Tom Jones isn't the best and if you are used to Jeremy Northam in Emma, then it is a bit hard to watch. Jane Eyre is very well done too. Looking forward to finding the time to watch the rest!!! This collection is great for long weekends or when you are sick. Well worth it."
Wonderful set

"I bought this set for my teenaged daughter - who really enjoys period films - she, I and my husband have all enjoyed them immensely. The Scarlet Pimpernel is great fun and this is the best Pride and Prejudice ever. It's great to have these to lend out to friends as well."
