Mill Creek Entertainment added to its already busy January release schedule with a seven-strong array of priced-to-move DVD collections that will be headed to retailers on Jan. 28.
All of these double-disc product offerings are priced at just $9.98 each (and that’s before discounts at retail). Leading the way are four separate double-disc SKUs containing eight films each — more often than not any one of the eight films included in the mix are worth the $9.98 price all on their own.
For example, Chick Flicks includes writer/director Joseph Brooks’ 1977 sleeper hit, You Light Up My Life (starring Didi Conn, Melanie Mayron and Joe Silver), director Paul Mazursky’s 1984 comedy starring Robin Williams and Maria Conchita Alonso, Moscow on the Hudson and Sarah Jessica Parker in director Eric Schaeffer’s 1996 romantic comedy If Lucy Fell. For fans (and collectors) any of these three films would easily justify a $9.98 purchase … but you get all three and five more to boot for the same price!
In addition to these eight-film sets, there are also two six-film SKUs — British Cinema Showcase and Tear Jerkers — the former includes Once Upon a Time in the Midlands (with Shirley Henderson and Robert Carlyle), while the latter showcases the likes of Swept Away (with Madonna), To Gillian on Her 37th Birthday (with Claire Danes, Michelle Pfeiffer and Peter Gallagher) and Avalon (directed by Barry Levinson).
Lastly, documentary filmmaker Frank Martin’s five-part documentary hosted by Halle Berry, For Love of Liberty: The Story of America's Black Patriots, will be available as part of this Jan. 28 release package as a double-disc DVD set for just $9.98.
