    I have been searching HTF and the web for any reviews of this box set. Can't find any of them. Let alone the stand alone BD release of "The Omen" by itself. I am on the fench on the this one. I realy wanted to read some reviews on it first before I pull the trigger. Any ideas?

    Thx.

    here is a comment from a forum member at d_dtalk.com

    his pictures and comments about the shoddy job on the box set were none too encouraging either

    Recieved my copy of The Omen collection the other day and I was totally shocked at the very cheap packaging the discs came in.I don't know what Fox were thinking but the box is just about the cheapest looking and feeling thing i've ever seen,very flimsy indeed.I was expectring something at least like the Die hard collection box but this is beyond a joke.I've seen sturdier packaging on a snickers!

    I only purchased the original Omen, as the other films are of no interest to me. But I did see the thread on DVD Talk concerning The Omen Collection packaging, and if you are at all familiar with the horrendous packaging used on the Battlestar Galactica HD DVD set you will 'run for the hills' when you it.

    Those awful foam hubs should be banned. Even if I was interested in the whole set, I wouldn't buy it on principal alone. No film series deserves that kind of treatment.

    I like the second one as well. When he found out who he was and started to use his power.

    I agree 200% about the packaging. It is simply UNACCEPTABLE!!!!!![​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I can't believe that 20th is showing so such a lack of respect for one of their MAJOR properties. Not to mention the lack of respect for the people who buy their products.

    I have not watched it yet, so I have no comment on the actual AV presentation.

    Hmmm I've decided to skip this box set due to a) the apparently shitty packaging and b) the inclusion of the remake which was, well, just pointless.

    I will pick up the individual Omen disc instead.

    Any news if Damien and The Final Conflict will be released separately, like Fox is doing with the Planet Of The Apes sequels?

    This may be the absolute worse packaging of a major studio that I've ever seen! (not having seen Battlestar HD DVD) It reminds me of those dollar store $1 DVDs!! To make matters even worse my review copy was send in a bubble mailer and it looks like Old Scratch himself stepped on it. Atrocious. I've not even looked at the discs yet and I already hate it [​IMG].

    Funny. I actually like the foam hubs. I have a few from '98 that used them and they have held up very well. They are gentle on the disc and easy to remove and replace the discs. I cant comment on the rest of the packaging as I dont have this set yet.
