Movie Reviews

Great Movies, but Wizard of Oz is not in Spanish as describe
M. CRUZ | MEXICO | 02/06/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I got the package because the description said the three movies were in spanish. I was surprised to find out that the Wizard of Oz has subtitles in spanish but is not translated to the language. I am dissapointed because my little boy (who does not understand English yet)wishes to watch the movie in Spanish.... Description of the movies should be corrected."
Wizard and Wonka and Goonies...Oh, my! A Great Set for Kids
Andre Lawrence | Miami, Florida | 06/14/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If you can still get your hands on this set, do so!

I originally bought this set to send to some adorable little children in Jamaica who may never have had the opportunity to see (or even know) that these movies exist. However, when I received the set, it wasn't one of those cheap 2 or 3- movies on a single disc nonsense. There are 3 separate discs. Full version with some accompanying documentaries. I couldn't let this go, so I told those brats that Santa got word that they were naughty, "So you get nothing! Nothing, I tell you!" In the end, I decided to give them copies!

The Wizard of Oz-- Standard screen, commentary by a film historian, interviews with cast and crew, several short documentaries on the restoration of the film, music an effects track, original mono track.

The Goonies-- Widescreen, The Making of The Goonies documentary, Additional scenes, Cyndi Lauper's video "The Goonies R Good Enough!," cast and crew commentaries.

Willy Wonka and The Chocolate Factory-- Widescreen, commentary by the children featured in the film, sing-a-longs (yay!), brief bio of cast.

This is a steal. Warner Bros' just released another deluxe version of the Wizard of Oz, and until they released the single disc version the price to buy the Wizard alone is a lot of $$$$$$$$.

5 gargantuan Stars."
A true classic

"I bought two of these for my four grandchildren ( two to each family).
The children range in age from five to two and a half. My husband and
I put it on for them for the first time, and they were all mesmerized.
Since then, they must have watched it 10 times, and love to talk about all
the characters. Even the youngest can name all the characters and the bad witch. Their parents (my children) were rejoicing in the fact that this was one movie from their childhood that has withstood time with its magic and appeal. "There's no place like home"!"
Fantabulous

"This was a great find. I as looking for a copy of "the Wizard of Oz" for my granddaughters and gathering all three films together was a terrific bonus. They have become huge Willy Wonka fans, a next generation ! I know when they get a bit older, they will love "the Goonies" as much as their parents did."
