Rocky - The 1976 Oscar winner for Best Picture, John G Avildsen's Rocky is the story of a down-and-out club fighter who gets his million-to-one shot at a world championship title. In the title role, Sylvester Stallone (who also penned the screenplay) draws a carefully etched portrait of a loser who, in Brando-esque fashion, "coulda been a contender". Rocky then becomes one thanks to a publicity stunt engineered by current champ Apollo Creed (Carl Weathers), while finding love courtesy of timid wallflower Adrian (Talia Shire) along the way. Burgess Meredith revives the spirit of 1940's genre pictures through his scenery-chewing performance as Rocky's trainer. An enormously entertaining film, Rocky is irresistible in its depiction of an underachiever who has the courage to start all over again--a description that could have been applied to Stallone's own life at the time. --Kevin MulhallRocky 2 - The Italian Stallion returns for a rematch with Apollo Creed, hoping, finally, to capture the heavyweight title. This time, even his girlfriend, Adrian, gives Rocky her blessing. Sylvester Stallone wrote and directed this exciting follow-up, with Burgess Meredith, Talia Shire, Carl Weathers, and Burt Young all reprising their roles from the first film.Rocky 3 - Rocky's lifestyle of wealth and idleness is suddenly shaken when a powerful fighter challenges him to a fight for the championship. After being beaten, the previously over-confident Rocky resumes his training in preparation for a re-match.Rocky 4 - A World Heavyweight Boxing contest is to be staged between the champ, Rocky Balboa and the Soviet amateur champion, Ivan Drago. Both men know that this is more than just a tough contest of strength and skill.Rocky 5 - Times are hard for Rocky Balboa. A lifetime of taking punches has terminated his boxing career and a crooked accountant has left him in financial difficulties. The Balboa family moves back to its roots in a downtown neighbourhood where an aspiring boxer turns to the champ for training...Rocky Balboa - The sixth installment of the Rocky series picks up the story of the Italian Stallion 16 years after the morose Rocky V. And sure, at his advanced age, Sylvester Stallone now looks like one of those sides of beef his character used to pound on. No matter. Somehow you buy the premise after all these years, even if it takes forever for Rocky Balboa to stop wallowing in self-pity (Adrian is dead, his old haunts are demolished) and get down to the business of drinking raw eggs and running up steps. The business at hand is an unlikely exhibition fight with champion Mason Dixon (Antonio Tarver), which the near-sexagenarian Mr. Balboa has no business accepting. Of course, just as sure as the horns of Bill Conti's theme music are even now trumpeting through your head, the ol' Rock might have a punch or two left in him. Stallone wrote and directed, and there isn't much to say except that the movie steps in its pre-determined paces with a canny sense of what has come before (it's practically an homage to all the previous Rocky pictures, complete with fleeting flashbacks). Burt Young is around again, and Geraldine Hughes makes an appealing, rather chaste female companion for Rocky. Stallone's Rocky has gotten suspiciously articulate over the years, but he still knows how to slouch. If Stallone never forgets that, he can probably keep the franchise rolling. --Robert Horton

The Great War is over Wall Street is about to boom and everything is for sale even the World Series. It is a time of change when women are getting the vote broadcast radio is introduced and young people rule the world. On the beach in southern New Jersey sits Atlantic City a spectacular resort known as The World's Playground a place where rules don't apply. Massive hotels line its famous Boardwalk along with nightclubs amusement piers and entertainment to rival Broadway. For a few dollars a working man can get away and live like a king -- legally or illegally. The undisputed ruler of Atlantic City is the town's Treasurer Enoch Nucky Thompson (Steve Buscemi) a political fixer and backroom dealer who is equal parts politician and gangster and equally comfortable in either role. Because of its strategic location on the seaboard the town is a hub of activity for rum-runners minutes from Philadelphia hours from New York City and less than a day's drive from Chicago.

Though the 1920 election he successfully rigged is over Nucky finds himself the target of a federal investigation for vote tampering - and an insurrection by those he counted among his closest allies.

Advantages: All six films in one set. Disadvantages: You can spot the weaker ones straight away.
With a Blu-Ray release the picture quality is going to be superb and the quality here doesn?t let the viewer down, for instance in Rocky Balboa, the final film in the series, the quality is so sharp that the audience sitting watching the fight can be seen on an individual basis and facial features can easily be made out. To think that the first film was released in the mid...

...for hours after the film finishes. Vantage Point could be thought off as one of those films that needs to be viewed a number of times to truly be understood and appreciated, and therefore I'm glad I decided to add this to my Blu-ray collection; and will undoubtedly view it numerous times in the future.
The vast majority of Sony's Blu-rays look astonishing and are reference quality...

Back in 2001 when I first saw Donnie Darko I was blown away. Confused, creeped-out and amazed are some of the words that I would use to describe my feelings towards this film. I?ve seen it once, maybe twice again on DVD since that...
