Yes, I said 3 out of 5 stars
June 24, 2017
First and foremost, Indiana Jones is a must have for any movie collection. The movies are hands down 5 out of 5 stars.
So why did I give it a 3 you ask. Well I'll tell you why: The packaging. The packaging and case look great. Seriously it is gorgeous. HOWEVER, there is a problem when the case causes damage to the actual main material inside.
The discs don't come on a plastic press down, lift off normal kind of mechanism that you find in 99% of any kind of CD, DVD or Bluray case. All of these movies are in a slip cover. You have to slide it out from the side to get it out. Even this wouldn't be sooo terrible if I didn't have to really fight to get the discs out; the discs are in so tight that I felt like I had done a workout at the gym. Ok, maybe that's a bit of exaggeration but seriously, they are in tight. This causes friction between the delicate disc and the harsh paper the discs sit on. The first time I pulled out each disc, they all had scratches on them. No, they weren't extremely huge scratches, but they were scratches nonetheless. And maybe I'm the only one like this but, I like my movies to be flawless; NO fingerprints NO scratches. I had to put fingerprints on them to get them out but at least that's an easy fix but scratches are permanent. And not to mention I haven't even looked at them yet. I don't want scratches on my NEW material literally straight out the box. Also, after sliding these things out over and over again, over time the case is just killing my movies. Terrible, HORRIBLE design.
Ok, I feel like you may get my point by now. To wrap this up, this is a great buy to have the whole Harrison Ford Indy collection. But be prepared that if you buy this specific set and scratches annoy you, you will be highly annoyed. I plan to put these in some other slim cases because I can't bear to see my Indy's take damage for no good reason at all.
