This second set from MGM includes five Woody Allen films. Simply click on the box art below to get the full review of each individual title.

All of the movies are in 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen and they look pretty great. They have their fair share of problems though. Grain are on all of them plus pieces of dirt and some blemishes. Still, for the most part, they're the best condition I've seen the movies in and are pretty sharp.

All of the movies also feature English, French and Spanish mono tracks, English closed captions and Fench and Spanish subtitles. The mono tracks are suitable and fit each film pretty well. We know how Allen likes his mono, and this does not disappoint here. Sure it won't take full capabilities of your sound system, but things are easily heard and crisp. Dialogue is not distorted or muffled, and it gives theses movies a nice feeling to it.

Each movie also includes a collectible booklet with a good amount of info on the movie and their Theatrical Trailer too.

This Woody Allen set from MGM does contain some good work from Allen, though the majority is not his best. The presentations are fine and the extras are minimum. If you love his work and need to own them all then this set is for you. However, if you plan to own one or two of these titles, then don't get this set. When you think about it, this is a pretty good deal. Each movie retails for around 20 bucks and this set is about 100 dollars, but you can probably snag it for around sixty. That's sort of like getting two movies free. Well, it's up to you, but Allen fans will want this for sure.
