    That would be cool. Beverly Hills Cop is the series that I would most like to add to my collection followed closely by Star Wars and Star Trek TNG.

    Me too.

    But it's a shame they didn't add a Commentary by Eddie Murphy.

    Hmm, but what about the pricing. All three titles retail for the same about (despite II and III being pretty much vanilla titles) and the three together separately is actually 12 cents less than the box set. [​IMG]
    Die Hard box was only about the price of two movies (IIRC) and all three were full-on SE's. Add to that, I'd imagine Die Hard III is a great deal more respected than BHC III on average.

    I am a box set maven, but have no plans to get this one. I'll pick up the first two releases, and save the dough on the third piece-o-crap film. I couldn't stand it the first time I saw it, and there's no reason to have it in my library at any price. Rocky V was a triumph compared to this stinker! Phew!

    Oh right. Must have been the exchange effect. I guess the BH box may be cheaper over here too, then. Not that I'd want the other two. They'd have to make them free before I'd buy 'em.

    Colin, I got the Die Hard SE Box set from Best Buy in Mill Valley, Ca for $50+tax. That turned out to be buy 2 get one free. Even if that were the case with Beverly Hills Cop boxed set, I wouldn't want it. I did like both the first and second movie and will buy those [​IMG]

    Just checked future shop, and the 3 movies are 23.99 each, or 63.99 for the trilogy. Not quite one free, but one cheap. Still not sure if I'll get the box or just the first two though.

    Colin, you are correct! I really do hate BCH III that much. If I can get the box set for the same price as the first two I still wouldn't want it, that thing was a piece of trash. Just like Ron's new review of The Man Who Loved Women, I want my two hours back from this movie as well.
    I know what you meant about the trilogy pricing, and you are right. Just like The Man With No Name Clint Eastwood collection. $9.95 for each, or $29.85 (something like that) for all three, whoopidy doo.[​IMG]

    Trailer-only Harlem Nights and no commentary by Eddie Murphy on BHC [​IMG] it's a shame there are so little special features on these dvd's.
