Best purchase I've made in awhile Posted by: from: san antonio,tx on You get not one, not two, but THREE MOVIES. Three amazing Pokemon movies. You love Pokemon? You love the movies but still only have them on VHS because you're pretty old? Yeah, that was me. So I bought this blu-Ray combo pack to update my Pokemon movie collection from the 90's to the 2010's. WORTH. EVERY. PENNY.

Great for what it is Posted by: from: on I picked up this steelbook edition last night and was pleasantly surprised when I got it home. As a fan of Pokemon, owning the physical copies of these movies was a must over getting the digital editions on iTunes or Amazon. Unlike another review, mine had three disks. Each movie is on it's own blu-ray disk. The quality was good overall, definitely not an overhaul on remastering. The special features are gone but if at the end of the day you are looking for each movie on a blu-ray disk and really want a physical copy, you should definitely pick this up. If you aren't big into collecting or don't care about having the case in your library then stick with purchasing the digital copies. For what this is, I'm extremely happy with my purchase.

Great Set Of Movies Posted by: from: on It's amazing to see all 3 original movies all over again. They were a nice reminder of the past.

Great widescreen presentation... but not much else Posted by: from: on Having grown up with the Pokemon franchise, it had been disappointing that the earlier movies in the series were never released to home video in widescreen, always in a cropped fullscreen. With this release, we finally get the first three movies presented in widescreen, but sadly, at a cost of virtually everything else. The movies themselves look good, at least as well as animated movies nearly twenty years old can look. They have been cleaned up a bit for the blu-ray release, but don't expect restoration on the level of Disney here. They were movies made on a budget, and it still shows, with some fuzzy lines and a bit of artifacting, though admittedly looking better than previous DVD releases. The first feature, Mewtwo Strikes Back, is still difficult to sit through, with a lot of strange editing on the part of the dubbing team and the confusing and ever changing goal Mewtwo is working towards, not to mention some cringe inducing lines. The second feature, The Power of One, fares quite a bit better, with some good jokes and clever moments, but still feels like a leftover plot from a video game, with Ash having to collect three trinkets to stop a catastrophe. And you'll be hard pressed to find a Pokemon fan who won't agree that the third feature, Spell of the Unown, is by far one of the best movies in the franchise, with a great, interesting plot, fun dialogue, and some sincerely touching moments. While that takes care of the movies themselves, what about the extras? Sad to say, there are none. The commentaries and bonus features from previous DVD releases have been removed entirely, but by far the most egregious omission is the removal of the Pikachu mini-movies that would play before the feature. It's bizarre that they would be removed, considering they were considered part of the film itself, and it's not like there was space lacking on a BLU-RAY. To add insult to injury, the credits for the mini-movies still roll at the end of the feature film. Not cool, TPC, not cool. In the end, you get a cleaned up widescreen presentation for the main feature films, but in exchange you lose the extras and mini-movies of previous DVD releases. You'll have to decide for yourself if it's worth the trade-off.

Nostalgia 3 in 1 Posted by: from: California on Quality seems to be only as good as original release, not remastered. Great fun for anyone new to Pokemon, and still fun for those, like me, that have watched these movies previously.

Can you say "cash grab"? Posted by: from: on I am not going to go into detail about the movies because, first they are old and you can find far better reviews online about them, and second because if you are here looking at this item you probably either already know about them, or are getting it for someone who does. With that out of the way, I will talk about this specific release. For $40 you get a cleaned-up version of the first 3 Pokémon movies on a single Blu-Ray disc and... that's it. I'm not calling this a remaster because hardly any work has gone into it, with severe artifacting affecting the movies overall. Additionally, all the extras (Pikachu shorts, Behind-the-scenes interviews, Deleted scenes) that were present in the old DVD releases have been removed and replaced with absolutely nothing. Unless you are a super die-hard Pokémon fan that just "Gotta Catch 'em All" there is no value on this release, a true disappointment from The Pokémon Company Inc. and Nintendo.

You know what you are getting into. Posted by: from: on This is a good gift for any fans of the Pokemon show and would be a nice addition to their collection. The Steel Book is a nice addition but nothing great. Overall recommend.
