As far as I can tell, the only thing shoddy about this set is the packaging. Not only are the discs impossible to dislodge from their holders, but the sticky glue used to adhere them occasionally has stuck to the discs. So, you have to clean the disc gently before watching it, or you'll get video lock-up.

Why Uni just can't spend a bit more coin and do a proper 'hub' release for these is beyond me. I'm divided about all the poo-pooing over the 'old' Blu-rays being included. While I think Uni ought to have struck new Blu's from the same 4K elements, I think those should have been sold in their own separately packaged box set.

Those of us who have upgraded and watch 4K discs, RARELY reference the Blu's for comparison, and most likely will NEVER watch them in their entirety - especially since Uni has included all the extras from the old Blu's on the 4K features. Very nice touch, by the way.

Just lazy to not be able to put the new transfers on BLUs for those that aren’t up to 4K yet. They could have had more sales for this batch. These are for those that either don’t own them on BLU at all or for most of us that want the 4K.

Totally agreed. MARNIE on Blu-ray was iffy at best. FAMILY PLOT was just awful. When they come out with a third set, I hope they remaster the Blu of THE MAN WHO KNEW TOO MUCH, another failure on Blu.
