The Completed Collections

I tend to pick through the many DVD multi-packs I own the way others go through boxes of fancy chocolates: I watch a movie here, watch a movie there... but the end result is that sometimes it takes me forever to finish a given set. Sometimes I never do, because one or more discs go missing in the pit that is my office.

This new series of posts will be a catalog of the DVD multi-packs I've actually managed to watch every movie in. It may not be much of an achievement, but I take my ego-boosts where I can find them! (Plus, it may save someone from buying a dog of a collection.)

Eventually, this post will be an index the posts indexes the reviews in the completed set. Each link here will provide a rating for the set generated by averaging the films in it.

  1. I admit, I still haven't seen all my episodes of the 60s "Thriller" tv series from England or the Hammer set I got a few years ago. I gotta sit down and do it some time. Writing always wins out. Argh! I need a day off just to finish the box sets. I still have the Jericho series staring me down, making me feel guilty.
