    I was thinking of picking this up but I don't know if it worth it. Is the audio and video atleast of decent quality?

    conan the barbarian is enhanced for widescreen, destroyer is not.. however there is a region 2/4 of both films that has DD 5.1 that is not on the region 1.
    there is aslo a DTS track for barbarian for region 2/4.

    SOme edition of conan in region 2 for the UK are edit for violences. check out germany or region 4 for an uncut version ofit.

    I am still in the learning process about picture quality and whatnot, so feel free to take what I have to say about the thing with a grain of salt, Roger.

    I picked it up for a decent price, though I was less than thrilled to find that it was one disk with Barbarian on one side and Destroyer on the other; and it is very difficult to tell which side was which on visual inspection. At least, I have yet to decipher anything in that teeny little writing around the spindle hole.

    There is a short "making of" doc about Barbarian, but little about Destroyer.

    I bought the disks because I enjoyed the movies, which is what mattered to me at the time.

    I haven't bought the 2-pack but I have seen it on shelves, at a great price I might add. The Conan set was part of Universal's 'Franchise Collection'. I own both the 'Smokey & The Bandit' and 'American Graffiti' collections. Both of which I'm extremely pleased with. I wanted to get the 'Problem Child Tantrum Pack' until I learned it was FS only.

    Anyway, for the price they sell these "Franchise Collections", you can't really go wrong.

    If you are a fan of the films, they are worth picking up.

    I didn't have any problems with the transfer, and they are relatively inexpensive, so, no real reason NOT to pick them up.

    I did like the movies but I haven't seen them in years so thats why I'm a bit leary.

    It's pretty much the same as picking them up separately, only they're on one disc and it saves you some shelf space.
