so i'm back to the velvet underground

Mill Creek Entertainment's 50 Movie Pack: Family Classics

Family Classics: 50 Movie Pack

Just bought this today for $20 at a local store. I already had many of these titles on DVD, such as the animated Gulliver's Travels, Till The Clouds Roll By, and The General starring Buster Keaton, but there were also some titles I've wanted that I didn't have, such as the first A Star Is Born and The Kid with Charlie Chaplin.

I'm currently previewing the titles in this collection for quality. The versions of The Last Time I Saw Paris and Till The Clouds Roll By are by far better in this set than any copy I own. I'm not too thrilled with the quality of Gulliver's Travels, especially since I own the Diamond Entertainment edition, which is very much superior. I do believe I'm going to quite enjoy this set. I've already decided to try to watch at least one of the titles every day until I've seen all fifty.

These fifty movies are contained on twelve double-sided discs. Some are short, and there are even some silent classics on here.
