"This is something so rare that I must write about it - a boneheaded decision by Warner Home Video when packaging one of their boxed sets. Why is this set selling so poorly you might ask? Why are used copies going for half of SRP? The answer is that for some reason the version of The Aviator included in this set is fullscreen. That's right - two disc versions of three of Martin Scorsese's finest films and one of them is fullscreen. I just can't get over it. With all of the sweeping aerial scenes, the scenes in the Cocoanut Grove, etc., and Warner's expects someone to plop down sixty plus dollars for a set that includes a fullscreen version of The Aviator?
Well, this is Warner Bros. 85th anniversary, and they did redo the Kubrick set last year, so let's hope they redo this set and get it right. I don't actually own this set. I own all of the individual movies and was thinking about buying this set recently as a gift to someone else when it went on sale at a drastically reduced price. A little research on another site turned up this information, so I hope I am not wrong in my post here.
My score is three stars as follows:
5 stars for the films themselves
1 star for ruining the entire thing with the fullscreen version of The Aviator.
Result = 3 stars with the two scores averaged together."
