The Day After Tomorrow
Supreme silliness doesn't stop The Day After Tomorrow from being lots of fun for connoisseurs of epic-scale disaster flicks. After the blockbuster profits of Independence Day and Godzilla, you can't blame director Roland Emmerich for using global warming as a politically correct excuse for destroying most of the northern hemisphere. Like most of Emmerich's films, this one emphasises special effects over such lesser priorities as well-drawn characters and plausible plotting, and his dialogue (cowritten by Jeffrey Nachmanoff) is so laughably trite that it could be entirely eliminated without harming the movie. It's the spectacle that's important here, not the lame, recycled plot about father and son (Dennis Quaid, Jake Gyllenhaal) who endure an end-of-the-world scenario caused by the effects of global warming. So sit back, relax and enjoy the awesome visions of tornado-ravaged Los Angeles, blizzards in New Delhi, Japan pummelled by grapefruit-sized hailstones, and Manhattan flooded by swelling oceans and then frozen by the onset of a modern ice age. It's all wildly impressive, and Emmerich obviously doesn't care if the science is flimsy, so why should you? --Jeff Shannon

The Day The Earth Stood Still (2008): A remake of the classic 1951 science-fiction film and starring Keanu Reeves stars as Klaatu, a humanoid alien who arrives on Earth accompanied by an indestructible, heavily armed robot, Gort, and a warning to world leaders that their continued aggression will lead to annihilation by a species watching from afar. This classic tale of man's arrogance, updating Cold War themes of nuclear warfare and incorporating current issues of environmental destruction, has been a massive influence on modern cinema. This faithful remake stays true to its roots and delivers a sobering message with no little excitement, suspense and drama.

Independence Day
In Independence Day, a scientist played by Jeff Goldblum once actually had a fistfight with a man (Bill Pullman) who is now president of the United States. That same president, late in the film, personally flies a jet fighter to deliver a payload of missiles against an attack by extraterrestrials. Independence Day is the kind of movie so giddy with its own outrageousness that one doesn't even blink at such howlers in the plot. Directed by Roland Emmerich, Independence Day is a pastiche of conventions from flying-saucer movies from the 1940s and 1950s, replete with icky monsters and bizarre coincidences that create convenient shortcuts in the story. (Such as the way the girlfriend of one of the film's heroes--played by Will Smith--just happens to run across the president's injured wife, who are then both rescued by Smith's character who somehow runs across them in alien-ravaged Los Angeles County.) The movie is just sheer fun, aided by a cast that knows how to balance the retro requirements of the genre with a more contemporary feel. --Tom Keogh

Not a bad price. But definitely mediocre films.
I was going to say I'm surprised it's not the Keanu remake of Stood Still ... and it is in the set the link takes you to, not the (superior) Michael Rennie original.
If I order this today....wonder if it'll arrive Wednesday.

Should do I suppose. Cos that's the day after tomorrow!

I thank you.
Not bad, but a more definitive collection would also have 2012, Armageddon, Deep Impact, War of the Worlds, I am Legend, and a few other US alone kicked ass movies.

Would have had me if it did have 2012 on there, but still a hot deal.
i kinda both liked I D and TDAT good popcorn films but yeah the day the earth stood still is poor but the other 2 i think are worth for the bluray.
ok price for crap films

Voted cold. Cheaper at Zavvi (£13.47) using a 15% off Reward You Thirst Code.

problem with that code is not everyone has it plus you have to buy a drink to get the code.
