Movie Reviews

Same thing as "Complete Series" for almost half the price!
A. Jordan | East Taunton, MA United States | 08/17/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is the exact same product at the DVD set listed as the "Ray Bradbury Theater Complete Series" but for less money and comes with a collectible tin. This was $18 vs. $31 for the other version. When you open the tin up, the package inside looks exactly the same as the picture for the other version, and even lists the copyright date as 2004.

I haven't watched all the episodes yet, but if you like Ray Bradbury, you can't beat this set for this price. The complete series on 5 DVDs with all 65 episodes for under $20-you can't go wrong."
Really good, but just a little lackng.

Ray Bradbury Theater is uniquely Bradbury, and that in itself qualifies this series as top rate science fiction. Dark disturbing stories are made emotionally distressing for the viewer through dramatic camera angles, superb lighting, and top quality acting. Bradbury Theater is not Twilight Zone, not Hitchcock, and not Outer Limits, but just as these shows have their unique and characteristic signatures, so does Bradbury Theater. Where Twilight Zone is clever, Hitchcock unexpected and Outer Limits strange, Bradbury is twisted with a hint of the demonic. If you are a Poe fan, you'll just love the queasy disemboweling feeling you get watching these plays, but not late at night, or just before bedtime."
Pure Sci-Fi entertainment

"While this entire set may not be The Twilight Zone or Night Gallery it's still great fun to see these productions. The stories are presented through the vision of the author which adds to their value. They are quick wonderful presentations that capture an interesting time in television. If you enjoy reading Ray Bradbury you will enjoy these discs. With all these episodes you will finds hours of enjoyment as I have so far."

"The collection as a whole is viable, though, as another reviewer indicated, there are some less-than-stellar episodes. All that said, these are adequate for my purposes (teaching a SciFi class). If you are looking for a "bargain", go with the version without the "collectable tin"(unless you're just into collecting them!): the 5 DVDs already come in a hard-case flip file, smaller than the box, so ultimately the box is unnecessary - especially because THERE IS NO LISTING OF THE EPISODES ANYWHERE ON THIS PRODUCT, other than when you actually view the DVD, of course! THAT was quite disappointing. Thank goodness for another reviewer who had more time on his/her hands than I, or I would have been reduced to viewing all the DVD openers and typing out the entire list!! (Thanks! to that reviewer.) Aside from that, the video quality is adequate for most of the epidoses (considering I have a TV that is old-school). Ultimately, you can't go wrong with this collection - just have to take the good with the not-so-good."
