The Mel Brooks Collection: $29

Another one day sale from Amazon: The Mel Brooks Collection @ $29.

This is a great collection of Mel Brooks movies, but it is not the definitive collection — froma  film perspective, it is missing the original The Producers (1968) as well as the musical remake.

Also missing is the 2000 Year Old Man, Brook’s hilarious work with Carl Reiner.

Still, this is 9 blu ray discs for under $30 — that is a pretty decent deal.

Contains the films Blazing Saddles, Spaceballs, Young Frankenstein, High Anxiety, History Of The World Part 1, Robin Hood: Men In Tights, Silent Movie, To Be Or Not To Be and The Twelve Chairs.

Clint Eastwood: 35 Years, 35 Films, 64 Bucks

Amazon is running another sale on an item we featured back in December: Clint Eastwood: 35 Films 35 Years at Warner Bros.

I have been a huge Clint Eastwood fan — but those Spaghetti Westerns are part of this package. Note also that set is remastered DVDs — not BluRay.

Still, at $63 bucks (list is $180), this is a whole lotta Clint for not a lot of money. I know quite a few people who would love this.

Full list of 35 films after the jump.

Alien Anthology [Blu-ray] $29.99

The BluRay version of the Alien Anthology is on sale at Amazon for 66% off the $79.99 regular price at Amazon’s one day sale.

I loved the first Ridley Scott directed film — “a stylishly malevolent alternative to George Lucas’s space fantasy” — but I am less than enthused about the subsequent sequels.

This is a point of disagreement amongst some of my Sci-Fi buddies who enjoy the rest of the series in all its various flavors. Quite a few believe the sequel is superior to the original. I don’t, but I am a Ridley Scott fanboy and have zero objectivity.


There is an excess of special features, detailed after the jump.
