Packaging / Design

Once you get past the initial chock of the green, this case actually turns into quite an eye-catcher. The discs are housed in two amaray slimcases while the movie scrapbook (which is nice illustrated by the way, and a nice addition for anyone who feels like flipping through it - though I personally hardly ever do that for some reason) is nestled in alongside them with a very perfect fitting to the outer slipcase.

Now I mentioned the green here because initially I really felt awful about the design on this one. I guess I just really wanted to get a clear white look like the R2JP superbit set... and I guess I just felt dissapointed about them going for the slimy green look as I felt it made the box feel cheap. However, I must say I was pleasantly surprised as this set not only looks but also har an overall 'luxurious' feel to it. The slipcase itself looks very slimy; it's nicely embossed and reflects the light very nicely. The only concern here would be the backcover which sadly isn't embossed and as you see it also differs a lot from the green looking front. I think this is okay but as we get specs and stuff of the slimcases inside I think the slipcase backcover could've been left slimy to give more of a "box-like" feel to it. This note sets this set down to a seven from a possible nine. But still a very nice set at a reasonable price.


Disc contents / Extras

As usual with double-feature, trilogiy, and multi-part sets the latter part of it is lacking any kind of sequal-specific extras. Ghostbusters is of to a good start with a video-commentary and some deleted scenes. But after that everything just slows down with some mini making-of's circa 1999 / 1984 and where really taken out of the loop to fast here. On the plus side we do get 2 full episodes from the animated series The Real Ghostbusters but I find this a bit unforfilling and must say I would've rather liked to see a commentary for Ghostbusters 2 and some more interviews with the cast and crew (I mean where the hell did Sigourney Weaver go?!). To summarise: The first film get's an ok setup of extras but the second one get's close to none at all. This could have been done sooo much better...

I mean the subs are in yellow for crying out loud!


Sidenotes

The cover incorrectly states Ghostbusters being presented in fullscreen, when it's in fact presented in 2.40:1.
