Movie Reviews

Great films, great value
E. K. Moseley | AZ USA | 09/28/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"No frills, just 3 great films for a good price. I like the documentaries but usually only once so I like films sold like this for about 9 bucks a film."
There are extras
A. Pierre | Somewheres | 01/30/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"As I read some reviews they claim there are no extras. The Maltese Falcon and Citzen Kane come with a slew of extras that are really good. Ben Hur has commentary and thats it. The picture and audio quailty is excellent and it seems like these movies were made just yesterday. Three of the greatest movies ever made for $23? How can you go wrong? Highly recommend this set."

"Great Deal, 3 in 1. Have never seen these movies, Citizen Kane, Maltese Falcon, Ben Hur,and this 3 in 1, no excuse to not get these movies. Now I have them in my collection and can finally see these great films and share with friends and family."
Citizen Kane Defective Disc !
Hotshot | KC, MO | 01/05/2009
(1 out of 5 stars)

"I bought this set in great anticipation. I'd wanted The Maltese Falcon in my collection for a long time: Wanted to replace my VHS copy of Ben Hur. Citizen Kane; considered by some the greatest movie ever made: was just a bonus ! Upon receipt I viewed all : Citizen Kane last. Unfortunately it was a defective disc. It would pop and skip and stall ; often missing huge chunks of the feed ; blotted out by digital sqares on the screen. It was terrible. I requested a replacement which they promptly sent. The replacement was the same: Defective ! Just like the other one. I wanted to keep the Maltese Falcon and Ben Hur ; they were good and asked them to either replace or refund what it would cost to replace Citizen Kane w/ a new (single)disc version. About $15. plus shipping. They refused. This would be a great package and a great bargan if it weren't for the faulty Citizen Kane disc. After receiving two defective copies I suspect the whole run is bad and I wouldn't reccommend anyone buy this package unless you don't care if Citizen Kane is unwatchable."
