A+
Running Time: 
353 Minutes

There are two waves of asian movies that have taken America by storm; horror and beautifully crafted romantic period pieces.  The former has become redundant and tediously predictable.  The latter has stayed true and gorgeous.  This...is the latter.

QUALITY:
Gorgeously clear and flawless.  The sound is completely lossless and the picture is perfect almost to a flaw.

BONUS FEATURES:
Featurettes, Commentary.

Curse of the Golden Flower and House of Flying Daggers were already released on blu-ray.  This box set is really to showcase the movie that started it all; Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, making it's blu-ray appearance for the first time.  This is an incredible box set well worth the purchase if you don't already have Golden Flower and Flying Daggers.  If you do, $93 is a bit much to pay for one movie, it's just a shame that Sony hasn't announced a breakout single release for Tiger yet.
