El Cosmico here, with the contents of the two upcoming Clint Eastwood DVD box sets.
Now, I don't need to tell you that Eastwood is a god, or that you need a bunch of his DVDs in your collection. What I do need to tell you is that Warner Bros. really should have taken a few moments to consider fan interest when picking these sets...unless they're really well priced. Here they are:
The 6 DVD set includes:
Escape From Alcatraz
For A Few Dollars More
In The Line of Fire
The Outlaw Josey Wales
Okay, that could have been a LITTLE more badass, but those are all movies I want on DVD, so I figure it's a pretty good set. All of these aren't what I'd consider essential, but they're all pretty damn good. Now, the additional titles in the 10 (formerly twelve) DVD set are:
Bridges of Madison County
Thunderbolt and Lightfoot
To quote my source, Dennett Reins, on this, "Why they chose these titles? Don't know. Why For A Few Dollars More instead of Fistful of Dollars or The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly? Don't know. Don't know. Don't know." Well, I don't know either. I'm not gonna say that these aren't good box sets, I think all of these films in both sets are probably worth having, but instead of a "good" box set, what I was really hoping for was a "badass" box set. You see, since Clint Eastwood himself is totally badass, it only makes sense that his box set should be as well. Makes sense to me. Dennett also says that there won't be anything "special" on these discs...they're repackaged, not special editions. The gift box supposedly has a cool design though. Unfortunately, the quality of a gift box doesn't typically affect the viewing experience.
