Now Is The Time To Buy The Warner Bros. 50 And 100 Film Collections

50 film collection

Included in Warner Bros.’ 50 Film Collection are 16 movies to win Best Picture at the Academy Awards. Those are the ones marked with an asterisk below.

There are also two new documentaries included: Tales from the Warner Bros. Lot and The Warner Bros. Lot Tour, and those were the main appeal for me. Well, that and being able to offload some of the standalone versions I already had of many of the films included. More shelf space provided, slightly more films added to collection.

At the almost-$600 full price, this collection doesn’t seem to be worth it. But there’s a huge price drop right now, with Amazon offering the 52 disc box set for $184.99, which is under $4 per film title, not counting the bonuses.

Or, if you don’t care about HD, there’s also the 100 Film version on DVD< currently at $289.99, or jus under $2.90 per film.
