A Clockwork Orange 40th Anniversary Edition
Causing major controversy when first released, the film garnered four Academy Award nominations - Best Picture, Best Director, Best Film Editing and Best Screenplay - and is number 4 on AFI's Top 10 List of Best Science Fiction films of All Time.
New Special Features:
Humbert, a divorced British professor of French literature, travels to small-town America for a teaching position. He allows himself to be swept into a relationship with Charlotte Haze, his widowed and sexually famished landlady, whom he marries in order that he might pursue the woman's 14-year-old flirtatious daughter, Lolita, with whom he has fallen hopelessly in love, but whose affections shall be thwarted by a devious trickster named Clare Quilty.
2001: A Space Odyssey (1968)
Stanley Kubrick's dazzling, Academy Award-winning achievement (Special Visual Effects) is an allegorical puzzle on the evolution of man and a compelling drama of man vs. machine. Featuring a stunning meld of music and motion, the film was also Oscar-nominated for Best Director, Art Direction and Writing. Kubrick (who co-wrote the screenplay with Arthur C. Clarke) first visits the prehistoric age-ancestry past, then leaps millennia (via one of the most mind-blowing jump cuts ever) into colonized space, and ultimately whisks astronaut Bowman (Keir Dullea) into uncharted space, perhaps even into immortality.
Barry Lyndon (1975)
Redmond Barry (Ryan O'Neal) is a young, roguish Irishman who's determined, in any way, to make a life for himself as a wealthy nobleman. Enlisting in the British Army and fighting in Europe's Seven Years War, Barry deserts, then joins the Prussian army, gets promoted to the rank of a spy, and becomes a pupil to a Chevalier and con artist/gambler. Barry then lies, dupes, duels and seduces his way up the social ladder, entering into a lustful but loveless marriage to a wealthy countess named Lady Lyndon. He takes the name of Barry Lyndon, settles in England with wealth and power beyond his wildest dreams, before eventually falling into ruin.
The Shining (1980)
From a script he co-adapted from the Stephen King novel, Kubrick melds vivid performances, menacing settings, dreamlike tracking shots and shock after shock into a milestone of the macabre. The Shining is the director's epic tale of a man in a snowbound hotel descending into murderous delusions. In a signature role, Jack Nicholson ("Heeeere's Johnny!") stars as Jack Torrance, who's come to the elegant, isolated Overlook Hotel as off-season caretaker with his wife (Shelley Duvall) and son (Danny Lloyd).
Full Metal Jacket (1987)
A superb ensemble falls in for Stanley Kubrick's brilliant saga about the Vietnam War and the dehumanizing process that turns people into trained killers. The scathing indictment of a film was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Screenplay. Joker (Matthew Modine), Animal Mother (Adam Baldwin), Gomer (Vincent D'Onofrio), Eightball (Dorian Harewood) and Cowboy (Arliss Howard) are some of the Marine recruits experiencing boot-camp hell under the punishing command of the foul-mouthed Sergeant Hartman (R. Lee Ermy). The action is savage, the story unsparing, and the dialogue is spiked with scathing humour.
Eyes Wide Shut (1999)
Kubrick's daring and controversial last film is a bracing psychosexual journey through a haunting dreamscape, a riveting suspense tale and a career milestone for stars Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman. Cruise plays a doctor who plunges into an erotic foray that threatens his marriage - and may ensnare him in a murder mystery - after his wife's (Kidman) admission of sexual longings. As the story sweeps from doubt and fear to self-discovery and reconciliation, Kubrick orchestrates it with masterful flourishes. His graceful tracking shots, rich colours and startling images are some of the bravura traits that show Kubrick as a filmmaker for the ages.

For all these films (plus the extra bonus features) this box set is a must for any Kubrick fan! I'm a very happy shopper! Thanks Zavvi!!
This is a great set for anyone who is looking to watch Kubrick's back catalogue of films in HD with some great bonus features to match. I'm a big fan of Stanley Kubrick's films and wanted to own all the films on blu ray, so i thought this was a great purchase. As well as seven of his films, there is a bonus disc which contains documentaries on the renowned film maker. The only downside of the collection is the presentation of the box set, just an enlarged blu ray box in a slip case. It would have been nice if it had a bit more to the packaging, but for the contents alone, it's fantastic value!
Fantastic collection which covers a large variety of genres. Each disc comes with lots of special features and there's even an additional disc with a documentary about the life and work of Stanley Kubrick and another documentary about Malcolm McDowell's carrer. For such old movies the picture quality is really good, too. The great variety of dubbing languages also makes this collection available for buyers who don't understand English. I miss Dr. Strangelove on this collection but nevertheless it's a really fantastic selection with great value for little money.
The must of the must! Genius!
The Stanley Kubrick Collection is an amazing collection of films from an incredible filmmaker. This is a must have for Kubrick fans.
The Stanley Kubrick Collection is good value considering how many classic movies are in this. I have yet to get around to watching them all, but most of them are decent quality Blu-ray releases. These movies are classics, however some are considered controversial, such as one called Lolita which is about an older man falling in love with a 16 year old. So far, that has been the worst movie in this box set. Before buying, it may be best to read what each movie is about to see whether you would enjoy them.
7 fantastic films in a great box set!
These films offer the best versions of some of Kubrick's finest films including A Clockwork Orange, which had previously been banned in the UK, and 2001, which has to be one of the most referenced Science Fiction films in the history of cinema and still stands up as a masterpiece. The video quality of each film is fantastic and the interviews and special features are interesting, though I haven't managed to watch them all as yet. The only things missing are the 2 films that were available in the US box set; Spartacus and Dr Strangelove.
Boxset is small and looks good, a great gift. Great selection of films and the best price on the internet ! Plus free delivery !
The most attactive aspect of this Stanley kubrick Collection box set is the price. The Stanley Kubrick Collection allows a new generation of audience to enjoy a monumental collection of films by a master of film making. Now you can watch these films in the best resolution available on the mass market. Films like 2001: A Space Oddessey just immerse the viewer into truly epic cinematography. The films contained in this box set are timeless, and anyone in possession of this set is likely to watch these films time and time again. I recommend this for all fans of quality cinema.
The Stanley Kubrick Collection is excellent value for money.
