|Get ready for action, adventure, and excitement with The Best of Blu-ray Disc: Volume Three! This incredible collection includes some of your favorite films of all time in stunning high definition: THE DEPARTED, GOODFELLAS, BLAZING SADDLES, and SUPERMAN: THE MOVIE!|
THE DEPARTED: Four 2006 Academy Awards (2006): Best Picture, Director (Martin Scorsese), Adapted Screenplay, and Film Editing. The taut, terrific tale of two cops - one a lawman inside the mob, one a mob informant on the force. Leonardo DiCaprio, Matt Damon, Jack Nicholson, and Mark Wahlberg star.
GOODFELLAS: Academy Award (1990): Best Supporting Actor (Joe Pesci). The electrifying, fact-inspired tale of living - and dying - The Life. Robert De Niro, Ray Liotta, Lorraine Bracco, and Paul Sorvino also star in Martin Scorsese's masterwork.
BLAZING SADDLES: Filmmaker/co-star Mel Brooks goes way out West and way out of his mind with a spiffy spoof set in an 1874 Old West where 1974 Hollywood is just one soundstage away - and where nonstop fun blasts prejudices to the high comedy heavens.
SUPERMAN: A beloved box-office triumph, this awesome adventure's legacy soared higher when director Richard Donner revisited the film 22 years later and integrated eight minutes of footage. Christopher Reeve, Marlon Brando, Gene Hackman, and Margot Kidder give indelible performances.
