Product Overview

Get ready for action, adventure, and excitement with The Best of HD-DVD: 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.

Review [Departed] The Departed is a perfect example of why remakes shouldn't be dismissed out of hand. Director Martin Scorsese and screenwriter William Monahan have taken the B-grade Hong Kong crime flick Infernal Affairs and re-imagined it as an American epic tragedy. The original film was gritty and entertaining; the new version is a masterpiece - the best effort Scorsese has brought to the screen since Goodfellas (ending a decade-long drought of disappointments and near-misses). In making The Departed, Scorsese has retained the essential plot structure of Infernal Affairs but has transformed the movie into something truly his own...The Departed is as suspenseful as anything the director has previously achieved. This movie deserves mention alongside Scorsese's most celebrated movies: Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, Goodfellas, and The Age of Innocence.

Review [Blazing] There are some people who can literally get away with anything -- say anything, do anything -- and people will let them. Other people attempt a mildly dirty joke and bring total silence down on a party. Mel Brooks is not only a member of the first group, he is its lifetime president. At its best, his comedy operates in areas so far removed from taste that (to coin his own expression) it rises below vulgarity..."Blazing Saddles" is like that. It's a crazed grabbag of a movie that does everything to keep us laughing except hit us over the head with a rubber chicken. Mostly, it succeeds. It's an audience picture; it doesn't have a lot of classy polish and its structure is a total mess. But of course! What does that matter while Alex Karris is knocking a horse cold with a right cross to the jaw?

Review [GoodFellas] The movie did well upon its release, but its longevity is what makes it a classic. As actor Joe Pesci points out, not a week goes by that the movie isn't on cable somewhere, and many of its scenes - and even its epic steadicam shots - have become legendary. Simply put, it is one of the most perfect movies ever made, so much so that the American Film Institute honored it as one of the top 100 films of all time...When you first watch GoodFellas, you don't necessarily realize that you're watching a classic, a masterpiece. The film is such good entertainment, so powerful and fast-paced, that it leaves no room for a viewer to sit back and contemplate; the audience is engaged with the movie and the characters from beginning to end.
