Movie Reviews

A real five star bargain.
Danny | South Philly | 03/01/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I'm liking these four-in-one packages Warner Bros. has been doing. And for such a price! With the amount Amazon is charging for this DVD set, you get each movie for under three bucks each. Not a bad deal at all.

I actually bought this for Creepshow and Cat's Eye, two movies that used to freak me out as a kid, but I loved nonetheless. The roach story in Creepshow still manages to make my skin crawl; the troll's scary factor in Cat's Eye has lost a little of it's impact over time, but the record player scene still makes me chuckle. Awesome movies, people. George Romero's most entertaining film outside of his Dead series (arguably) and Drew Barrymore being adorable. What's not to love? 80's genre classics.

I haven't watched Dolores Claiborne or Dreamcatcher yet, but I skimmed through them a bit for the purpose of this review. Thankfully, as advertised, all the movies in this collection are in anamorphic widescreen (as opposed to the last of these collections I bought, which featured Copycat in 4:3 full frame, despite what the case said). Each movie has the same special features as their single-disc counterparts. This keepcase collection contains two double-sided discs (one movie for each side)."
Superb King quad-pack
Annie Van Auken | Planet Earth | 10/11/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"There's no "extras" in this Stephen King flip-disc double pack beyond movie trailers. Widescreen transfers are of excellent quality.

All four titles are appealing, but for different reasons.

DOLORES CLAIBORNE is the most "normal" film here. It deals with a mother/daughter relationship and their past history, plus the mom's renewed trouble with a local sheriff who has been trying for about 20 years to see her convicted of murder.

Just saw CREEPSHOW for the first time and really liked it. Here, a father takes his pre-teen's horror comic book away and trashes it. The book flips open and a single panel from five different comics segues to live action, in other words, into five short stories. Best of the lot is "Tide," the one in the middle. King himself is the star of tale #2. After we see all five there's a final shock for the dad who foolishly threw his kid's book away.

CAT'S EYE is another anthology, one that follows a gray tom's adventures as he travels south, roughly along the East Coast. In North Carolina, the cat bonds with a very young Drew Barrymore, who can't convince her scoffing parents that there's a small monster hiding inside her bedroom wall.

DREAMCATCHER features a malignant version of the magic we see in THE GREEN MILE (1999), but it's really a very gross film about giant razor-toothed worms from outer space trying to conquer Earth via the water supply. A bloody stomach-turner, this one!

Parenthetical numbers preceding titles are 1 to 10 imdb viewer poll ratings.

A Stephen King Must Have!
Leah, The Butterfly Lady | Oklahoma | 07/06/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Creepshow was one of the older movies and very, very good based on the concept of the old scary comic book stories. It is a must have for any Stephen King fan for their collection. It's good with a bowl of popcorn on Halloween night.
Cats eye is a series of stories that takes you through the adventures of a cat on his way to save a little girl from a troll. Each story has you on the edge of your seat. There is a lot of psychology at work with this one and the stories end with the final one with Drew Barrymore playing the little girl who is saved by the brave furry little "General" who protects her even going as far as to play the troll on the record player and send him flying into a box fan. It's also a good movie.
Dreamcatcher is too good a movie to tell you about so I'm not going to spoil it.
Morgan Freeman gives a magnificent performance and well lets just say, you'll never
say SSDD again without thinking of this movie. It's a good movie. Watch it.
Dolores Claiborne is in my opinion the definition of true horror, working hard all her life to try to give her child a future only to find she's married to a monster who takes the money and abuses the child in a way that is just unthinkable. I think
this one would be good for any psychology class dealing on subjects of coercive paraphilias to gain an understanding of what it is like for victims of it. It would
be an excellent movie for certain kinds of psychology or sociology classes."
