Blu-Ray BOX | Steven Spielberg Director’s collection

Last weekend it was my birthday! To be exact: 20 September. As you all know – and the rest of my social connections – I just love films! I love to watch them and I love to write about them. So the perfect gift might have something to do with films. My parents didn’t like to just give me a dvd, they wanted to give something special. And they did gave me something special: Steven Spielberg’s Director’s collection with eight of of his amazing films!

In this amazing box, there are eight films directed by Steven Spielberg. But that’s not all. The Director’s Collection comes with an amazing book: Spielberg, A Journey in Film. The Blu-ray films are inside an other book where you can read all kind of things about the specific film. Every film has its own extras which provides us with some interesting information. The amazing director mr. Spielberg has made more amazing films than just eight, but this collection consists of the following films. Steven spielberg collection

  1. Now that’s a very nice birthday present that will make several moviegoers jealous! The only point of critism is that most of the time it’s unable to include all of the movies of one director. Is this edition simular to the Stanley Kubrick collection? Because I definitely felt in love with that Limited Edition!

    1. I don’t know that edition, but from what I see on Google it seems to be similar. The box a nice book and my films have a lot of extras on it as well! 🙂
