<英雄 Hero> DVD

I bought this DVD with the Star Wars trilogy together, because of it bounus material make it a hard to turn down deal for collection purpose. My motive is on the DVD additional material make it a complete suite on the movie ietself.

This is one of the good movie, with lot of beautiful scene and shot. I think after some time past, the strong color-driven scene still make a impact on my memory.

Gladiator (2 DVD set)

I also bought this 2 DVD set few day before, and able to manage to see the partial of the bonus material. Any how it is the good DVD collection items, it really bring the Rome back from the history and present for us, and no to mention the epic of general become slave, and slave become gladiator.
