"Okay, i was really rough on a previous title by this company because of their highly aggravating huge logo that appeared in the right hand corner of the screen, it was so distracting i couldn't concentrate on the film.This title is different, so far i have not seen that notorious huge logo, i did manage to catch a glimpse of of a small opaque logo saying " Ed Wood", but it was so slight and lasted only a second, it didn't bother me in the least.This is a great value and the quality of the prints are wonderful, great deal, and nice packaging too, no flippers!!! Great deal Passport, hopefully you re-do Bela Lugosi 15 Frightful Films!"

"I am not reviewing the movies themselves (as we know of their notoriety as "so-bad-they're-good flicks"), but the DVD collection itself.
I found this to be very much worth the nine dollars I spent for it, would've spent more. It is a simple 2-disc DVD compilation of Ed Wood's movies, including "Glen or Glenda", "Bride of the Monster", "Plan 9 From Outer Space" and "Jail Bait", along with a small collection of interviews with various people, including Johnny Depp, Tim Burton and Dolores Fuller. The quality was surprisingly good, I was very impressed! I highly recommend this collection."
A bargain or over-priced?

"At under ten bucks any collection of six movies should be considered a steal. But Ed Wood could very well be the exception. Which will mostly depend on whether or not you enjoy a good bad film or not. In my case I have to say it was well worth the price. I find that Wood's ultra-low budget and camp works best when he's doing horror or science fiction with Plan 9 and Bride of the Monster being my favorites. Glen or Glenda is one of the most surreal films I've ever seen with Lugosi playing God, a transvestite,loads of stock footage, and an appearance by the devil. The Violent Years and Jail Bait are explorations on Juvenile Delinquency a theme Wood seemed to touch upon a number of times in his career. What it all boils down to is- are you an Ed Wood fan or not? If you are then you should own this collection. If you've seen the Tim Burton film and enjoyed it then I would definitely recommend it. If your looking for something on the level of Citizen Kane or Lawrence of Arabia, then you are very, very off track. My only minor complaint about the DVD itself is someone thought it necessary to put one of those little icons in the lower right hand corner that says 'The Ed Wood Collection' like we're going to forget what we're watching. We may be Ed Wood fans, but we're not stupid."

"What is there really to say? You get six of his most important movies in reasonable video quality for under $10. This is a great alternative if you can't afford the box from Rhino. There is that small logo at the bottom (public domain video sellers are notorious for stealing each other's video sources, thus the "watermark") but it is not a distraction like the ones from some video companies. A great buy and essential to any movie collection."
