Movie Reviews

Great deal slashes the price by 60% !

(5 out of 5 stars)

"My review is of the box set, not each individual movie. This set is a fantastic deal as it individually these movies would cost over $100 plus shipping. The box set gives you all of the 6 separate movies in their original retail cases, placed together in a nice box. These are of course more than movies, they are each a mini-series of British BBC productions of classic Jane Austen novels, produced from 1972 to 1987. The movies in the set are:
1)Sense & Sensibility
2)Emma
3)Persuasion
4)Mansfield Park
5)Pride & Prejudice
6)Northanger Abbey

The clothes, the sets, furnishings, the actors, all work together wonderfully to bring these 18th century stories alive. The actors really do a good job of bringing these characters to life. These were previously available on VHS, but the DVD's have added additional scenes that were cut from the VHS in order to save tape. In the case of one movie there is 20 minutes of additional footage. As a Jane Austen fan, you will never find a film that you prefer to the books, but these are very well done and respectful of her writing without straying far from the book. "Emma" and "Pride and Prejudice" seem to be the stand out favorite from this set with many viewers I spoke to. Sense and Sensibility will always be compared to the big budget theatrical version, but if you avoid comparing the two this is an enjoyable version. I will not take up space in reviewing each individual show here as they are listed individually and reviewed by others at Amazon.com. But for a great way to get the entire collection at once for a good price, this is the best bet."
