With 35 movies at $180 MSRP, I would imagine it's gotta be DVD only. Flags Of Our Fathers is a Paramount release and Changeling is a Universal title.

Glad they are honoring one of the truly great actors and directors of our time, but got all the ones I want, which is 98%, and tired of double dipping until KELLY'S HEROES and WHERE EAGLES DARE are released on Blu-ray.  Hat's off to you Mr. Eastwood.

Wow!  I never realized that "Flags of Our Fathers" and "Letters From Iwo Jima" were different studios.  It's hard to believe that Eastwood was able to make two great films in parallel at different studios.  Since the films were tied together, and Eastwood has worked primarily with WB, I made the assumption that they were both WB productions.

Flags of Our Fathers and Letters from Iwo Jima were a collaboration between Eastwood and Steven Spielberg, who produced them.  Therefore, they were co-productions between Spielberg's Dreamworks, which is now owned by Paramount, and Eastwood's Malpaso Productions, which is based at Warner.  The deal gave U.S. distribution of Flags to Dreamworks/Paramount and Letters to Malpaso/Warner.

yawn.

a bunch of reissues, half of which are garbage movies to begin with, at a premium price and with the usual overblown packaging and useless photo card stills and giant book. The funny thing is that you can actually order the classy Kurosawa Criterion 25-film set at Amazon now for the same price, if not cheaper. Nice try...

I wouldn't call paying $5.14 for each movie a "premium price" (and $5.14 is the price per movie if someone pays the $180 MSRP for the set). With normal discounts, it'll probably be closer to about $4.00 per movie.

I have no opinions on this set really other than my own lack of interest, but my point was that most people already own these movies so even at twenty-five cents per film... what's the point? also, most of these flicks are terrible imo.

Would not this have been of bigger interest for a Christmas or Holiday gift for the none collector?  The February street date is for the Oscar race I guess.  This reminds me of the 100 disc Musical collection MGM/Fox released last year, only there were two or three never before released discs in that collection, and no one bought that collection.  These collections have to be for the none collector, only anyone this interested in Clint Eastwood already has the movies they want.

Your POV and opinion has been noted.

For me, the next time I buy these titles it will be on Blu-ray not SD DVD.

This set is a bit of a misnomer - WB may own KELLY'S HEROES and WHERE EAGLES DARE, but those were MGM films that predate Eastwood's formation of Malpaso and its long relationship with WB.  It would have made more sense for WB to include FLAGS OF OUR FATHERS; while DW/Paramount do have U.S. rights, WB was a partner, and both films were boxed together before.

It doesn't say anything about whether any of these will be new transfers - some of these discs are from the dawn of DVD, and could stand some refreshing.  A few AFAIK may even be old 1.33 VHS-level presenations.
