"Okay, I believe we all know who Indiana Jones, is, right? I grew up with Indy and my kids will be the same. This new box-set is the definitive Indy box-set. This set features the original classic trilogy plus the newest addition, "The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull". Just like the set that came out in May for the 4th movie, this set comes with the new special editions of the original 3 movies. The best part about this set is that the 4th movie is the 2-Disc special edition and not the lame 1-disc version. My only complaints with this set are 1) that the DVD cases are those really lame slim cases and not regular sized DVD cases and 2) the bonus disc from the original trilogy boxset is missing (although the special features makeup for that is most respects) and 3) while the cover is cool, the order of each movie cover is weird; you start from the top right and work your way around. All in all, this is the best Indy box-set out there and it's worth getting. Here's my ratings for each movie:
Raiders of the Lost Ark: 5/5 The Temple of Doom: 4/5 The Last Crusade: 5/5 The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull: 3.5/5"
Hey, Didn't I Buy This Already?

"INDIANA JONES-THE COMPLETE ADVENTURE COLLECTION is a four DVD set collection of the four Indiana Jones films. For those who don't know, the four Indiana Jones movies are:
RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK (that's the original title; I resist Lucas revisionism as much as possible) INDIANA JONES AND THE TEMPLE OF DOOM INDIANA JONES AND THE LAST CRUSADE INDIANA JONES AND THE KINGDOM OF THE CRYSTAL SKULL
The first three films were released in the spring of 2008 as special edition discs. The only thing new here is the inclusion of INDIANA JONES AND THE KINGDOM OF THE CRYSTAL SKULL. Other than that movie and the extras that are included with it, there is nothing else new here.
Therefore, if you already have purchased the first three movies, just buy a copy of INDIANA JONES AND THE CRYSTAL SKULL (it has the same extras that are included on this disc) and save yourself thirty or forty dollars. If you don't own those movies, I'd still advise you buy them separately. Prices have dropped since the special edition DVDs were released in the spring and you can buy all four of the individual movies for a total of about $5-$10 less for what it costs for this boxed set."
WAIT WAIT WAIT!!!!

"Don't get me wrong - there's nothing wrong with this boxed set.
The issue is that there will be a new, more exhaustive and comprehensive box coming in the next six months. It's coming. Don't be fooled!
If you must have the new movie now, then just buy the one disc. Wait for the new collection later.
That being said - the transfers and quality of the DVD's within are good. The special features are fine. It's complete now with all 4 films, which is nice. But I'm all for having one copy of every movie that I love, and not duplicate my collection by buying something which is bound to be obsolete shortly."
Great fun collection

"We could all day compare the last movie to the Temple of Doom and so on. It is not about that really. This collection is about grabbing some popcorn and sitting on the couch all day with your family and everyone having a great time. Unless you have been living under a rock you know what this movie franchise is all about. This collection is the same one that was for sale prior to the release of the last movie The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. (stars are my opinion)
Raiders ***** Temple of Doom * The Last Crusade ***** (new)The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. ****
Also included are some documentaries that were filmed during the making of the films. Making of documentaries make this a must have for the Indy collector. The Indiana Jones franchise may be getting long in the tooth but I think that this collection is a great pack of movies to have.
Thank you for reading my little review of this pack. "
Great Christmas Gift

"This collection has all four of the Indiana Jones movies. Each disc includes special features on the making of each movie and how the character, Indiana Jones, was created. They even have interviews with George Lucas and Steven Spielberg. Each of the movies are in their own cases. A perfect gift for anyone who loves Indiana Jones, action movies or Harrison Ford!"
