Good movies, questionable bundle

"I own all three of these titles, including Curse on BluRay. I like all three, though Flying Daggers a bit less than the other two. I'm not keen on a bundle-only option, but both Curse and Flying Daggers are available (from Amazon) on BluRay (both for about 1/3 the price of the bundle. Crouching Tiger still isn't out on BluRay, so I can see some irritation if you only want that movie. That said, the bundle is a good deal if you liked Crouching Tiger and might like other movies in the same genre. My concern is whether the BR of Flying Daggers or (when it comes out) Crouching Tiger has more special features than the regular DVDs did. The special features on the Curse BR are pretty thin."
Unnecessary or Overpriced

"This is the only way to buy Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon on Blu-Ray in the U.S. The two other movies have been on Blu-Ray for over a year. Anyone interested in these movies probably already has those two. This set could be acceptable at half the price, or if Curse of the Golden Flower or House of Flying Daggers were new special edition releases. But at this price point, we're paying full price for these older discs."
Un poco de decepción

"Me animé a comprar esta edición triple de películas chinas contemporáneas porque la publicidad en Amazon decía que venían subtitulados en español. Especialmente Crouching Tiger. Para mi sorpresa, el dvd no viene con subtítulos en español, a pesar que en la propia caja del disco dice que sí. A esto se le llama, "publicidad engañosa" y es lamentable.
I encouraged her to buy this edition triple of contemporary Chinese films because the publicity that came from Amazon said Spanish subtitles. Especially Crouching Tiger. To my surprise the dvd does not come with subtitles in Spanish, although in-house disc box says yes. This is called "misleading" and is regrettable."
