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.

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

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.
