Columbia Classics Collection: Volume 2 (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Sony has followed up their well regarded and popular 4K Ultra-HD Blu-ray Columbia Classics Collection with a second volume.  Released on October 12th, the box set features the debuts of Anatomy of a Murder, Oliver!, Taxi Driver, Stripes, Sense and Sensibility and The Social Network. You can find reviews for each of these titles here on Why So Blu. This is a sort of set overview review, where I have included links to those reviews in one place. This also contains a look at the unboxing of the packaging as well as the contents of the bonus disc. You can place an order for the set (While they last, these are LIMITED) by using the paid Amazon Associates link that follows the review. As always, your helping the site is greatly appreciated.

Summary

Sony has once again produced a dynamite set here with their second Columbia Classics Collection. They’ve put together another set of films from varying decades and genres, looking and sounding to the highest caliber. These sets are full of films that are bonafide classics and ones you may have forgotten just how great they are and overlooked through the years. Its quite easily to dub this set as one of the very best of the year and I cannot wait to see what they deliver next year!
