Packaging / Design

As far as packaging goes, there's really nothing wrong with this set. However, I really find the rainbow-ish flower-power hippie colouring to be a rather poor choice of design for this set, even though it does fit the overall feel of the movies.

But if you like the artwork then by all means go for it. The digipack and the slipcase are all glossy and there's nothing wrong with the quality either.


Disc contents / Extras

This is the only release so far to include the Ralph Bakshi interview presented on disc 3. As this is a rather slim lineup for special features it's nice to find that the interview is atleast a rather interesting piece. Bakshi covers a lot of ground in the time that he has, talking about how things came to be and all that, but as the films themselves are so ground braking in terms of animation and all that I find myself wanting a whole lot more when the interview is over.

Turning my attention to the movies, it saddens my heart that the first film is not presented in it's original aspect ratio but rather as disturbing non-anamorphic full screen fuck up. Granted, the first film hasn't been available in a different format before (in the UK) so it's not to big of a surprise.

As far as the second film goes, this is a widescreen presentation and they've also included the original theatrical trailer.

In conclusion: this set could be worth a purchase just for the extra interview but if you're just looking for the movies, I suggest you try to find the first film on region 1 as this is presented in 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen and also includes the theatrical trailer.
