Celebrate 100 Years of Universal Studios with this Limited Edition 100 Movie Collection Box Set.

In 2012, Universal Studios celebrates its 100th anniversary, and as part of the year-long Centennial celebration, Universal have put together this magnificent collection of films from the studio's rich legacy, beginning with the 1930s and Universal's first Best Picture Oscar winner All Quiet on the Western Front, all the way through to last year's most popular releases including the critical and commercial hits Bridesmaids and Senna. Along the way, Universal's releases have included the classic Monster films from the 30s to the 40s (including Dracula and Bride of Frankenstein), Award-winning films such as To Kill A Mockingbird and The Sting as well as many great films from great filmmakers such as Peter Jackson (The Frighteners and King Kong), Ridley Scott (Gladiator and Robin Hood), Orson Welles (Citizen Kane and Touch of Evil), Martin Scorsese (Casino) and Steven Spielberg (Duel, Jaws, E.T. and Schindler's List). From drug kingpins to King Kong, from toga parties to deadly sharks, from loveable extra-terrestrials to fearsome dinosaurs, from gladiators to 40-year-old virgins, Universal has kept audiences laughing and crying, cheering and covering our eyes for a glorious century. This box set comes in a stunning hard-bound book of 25 double-page spreads (with four DVDs contained on each spread and many rare photos from Universal's library) as well as an exclusive poster featuring all 100 titles.

Thanks for doing that PD101

Good post.

100 movies and Ang Lee's Hulk makes it in? Yeesh.

Bargain

Would have got this but it doesn't have Brokeback Mountain

They should stick this Box Set on the next Deep Space Galaxy Probe. If the Aliens don't come in admiration within 50 years, I'll eat my hat

Wow, great deal! Was this ever offered on Blu Ray?

Banned

Did they not make a Bluray of this? Seems a shame to have 100 movies on an outdated technolgy.

DVD in the age of 4k? cold!

Not the same collection I'm afraid that has just 25 movies I believe.

Completely right, didn't even see that, I am sure there was a Blu Ray version, I'm sure I posted it from Zavvi, could be wrong.

DVD. Urgh

good deal just shame its DVD

Shame it's not on VHS.

great price so have some heat. but in all honesty there is a raft of films in this collection I would never watch.

Anyone else mildly annoyed these aren't in chronological order.

Decided that as most of the films sources will be of a lower grade its got to be worth a purchase at this price so cheers OP.

Btw, found the Blu Ray version - Its twice the price but is still a good deal.

Oooppss yes so it is...

amazing, all this whining about it being DVD, outdated & not blu ray. By the time you've watched them all blu ray will be outdated anyway. Besides, most of the BR cuts are probably the DVD cut shoved on a dearer disc.

Cold. Free on torrent sites.

Total rubbish,
It's no coincidence that of those 100 - every single one has been released on Bluray - and far superior to any dvd release even for the old crap.

The whole PR of "100 of the best of Universal" is a farce though.

This is just "100 films all of which have been released on bluray".

"In fact, it's pretty much just every film Universal has commercially exploited on bluray that isn't brand new and still bringing in money that we have bothered with bluray, and thus you may well get the bluray after excluding films that never sold to begin with"

Doesn't get more cynical than this....

Hot though, price is brilliant/

100 films that sold well.
Not 100 films that represent anything meaningful.

Sorry but DVD I might as well rub sand in my eyes

ignore all these pathetic children whining about it being DVD. Last time I checked it was called Hot Blu Ray Deals. a fantastic deal at an epic price.

This is what you do when you have a few hundred thousand spare DVDs sat in a warehouse.

dammit, I want this for the set but have over half the films anyway....unless anyone wants to buy some!

And what exactly can you do with a 75 year old black and white film to improve it for Blu Ray? A 7.1 Mono Mix, a deeper black and whiter white process? There's plenty of Blu Rays that aren't any better than the DVD, there's even some that have ended up worse!

Quite a lot actually, more than you can do with a digital transfer of Star Wars Episode III which was shot in 1080p for example.
If you don't follow reviews that's fine, but don't bother commenting with an opener like this.
The only bluray that has ever looked worse than DVD is Interstella 5555 from Daft Punk released 7-8 years ago, a close second would be Resident Evil Degeneration which was a 720p upscale.
Challenge you to name a sinlge bluray in that list that looks worse than on DVD.

Here's a black and white film from 1954 for example
http://www.blu-ray.com/movies/Seven-Samurai-Blu-ray/7737/

You'll find that films this old and older are actually given better treatment than recent films, obvious when you think about it, for a film that old to have a commercial audience it has to be good and it the target market are going to demand some serious cleaning up.

You'll find that most films released between 1940-1960 look much better relatively speaking than recent stuff, because the 70s-80s stuff hasn't been cleaned up by pro companies as it's borderline acceptable for release, the old stuff couldn't be released without being cleaned up.

It's ok, don't be angry, you've learned something

Surely it's about the quality of the film not the print. I'd rather watch a DVD of The Sting than a blu ray of Transformers.

Ordered.

Great spot!!
And to those that think that most of these would be better on blu ray....agreed, maybe 50% of them would - my experience would say for most of these films the dvd would be more than sufficient. Also, if they are the anniversary edition dvds, then most of them would have already been remastered for dvd; so, just about the best quality dvd copy you will get.
Purchased....and a very good purchase it is!;)

Where did I say they would? You claimed that ALL Blu Rays look better when they don't! Many of the early ones were simple DVD masters transfered to Blu Ray, yes some have been finally remastered from original prints but even that is no guarantee that the work will be superior and even then they may have further work done - Ghostbusters and The Fifth Element spring to mind! Also how may Blu Rays have lost additional features that the DVD had? How many still use exactly the same quality DVD masters for the extras too?

I do read reviews pal, yes some will have superior prints available on Blu Ray, some really don't benefit from higher resolution as it shows up many faults of early special effect or poor set builds (Robocop, Alien...) and as such looses some of the movie magic. There's plenty of titles in this box set that don't need to be viewed in glorious full HD and tbh will be all the better for not being!

Yup you're right there pal, I've learnt you don't half talk out of your backside...

good deal, just not sure when I'd get time to watch them!
re. blu-ray v DVD. don't know how we ever managed!

Strange to see this getting more votes than the original post which is still live Original

That's a lot of quality movies for your hard earned cash.

Good find OP heat from me
