Why keep doing this?

"I don't know why Amazon keep's doing this. This is listed as a ten-movie set. What movies? Why would I buy this without knowing? Ok, if I had NO movies in my collection, I guess I could start with this one. But, as far as I know I already have all ten... Did I miss something?"
FYI -- The Movies Included

"I don't understand why Amazon even bothers to list this item if it isn't going to tell you what movies it includes.
I was curious so I looked on another site selling the same product. According to that site, the movies are: "10 full-length features that focus on the actions and psyche of the classic trained killer character. TARGET OF AN ASSASSIN (1978), KILL OR BE KILLED (1993), TO KILL A STRANGER (1983), ROGUE MALE (1976), INCIDENT ON A DARK STREET STREET (1972), PROJECT KILL! (1977), FUNERAL FOR AN ASSASSIN (1977), KILL CASTRO (1980), MURDER ONCE REMOVED (1971), and KILLING AFFAIR (1986)."
I'm not familiar with any of these films and they don't sound very good. By the way, I take no responsibility for the accuracy of this information."
