Yeah putting Jerry Maguire and A League along with other movies and call them classic seemed totally weird to me...

but I can’t wait to watch LOA on 4K since Sony seem never missed on their 4K catalog titles...

This acclaimed biographical drama presents major events in the life of Mohandas Gandhi (Ben Kingsley), the beloved Indian leader who stood against British rule over his country. Dedicated to the concept of nonviolent resistance, Gandhi is initially dismissed by English officials, including the influential Lord Irwin (John Gielgud), but eventually he and his cause become internationally renowned, and his gatherings of passive protest move India towards independence.

I'm not going to lie, I'm tempted by those special features.

But that price is way too high.

Surely they could have saved money by cutting out the DVD/BD discs.

17 discs for 6 films is insane.

Would rather they just released a full collection set rather than doing them in Volumes. Already own half of these films on Blu anyway, so I'll pass.
I'm not sure if that'll happen, but I'm hoping after this they'll start doing some of Haroly Llyods films. We pretty much only have DVDs for him in the UK.
