"Ghost Protocol" hits the streets tomorrow, so the timing is perfect. Tom Cruise fans can get a "Tom Cruise Blu-ray Collection," featuring HD prints of "Collateral," "Days of Thunder," "Minority Report," "Top Gun," and "War of the Worlds," for just $25.00 at Amazon. The sale ends 11:59 p.m. on Saturday, April 21, 2012.
Previously all of the films were released separately, and the only thing missing from this set is a second disc of bonus features from "Minority Report." If you like the films and aren't prone to watch the extras, this is the set to get, especially at this price.
In "Collateral," a cab driver finds himself the hostage of an engaging contract killer as he makes his rounds from hit to hit during one night in LA. He must find a way to save both himself and one last victim (Rotten Tomatoes rating: 86 percent fresh).
In "Days of Thunder," a young hot-shot stock car driver gets his chance to compete at the top level (Rotten Tomatoes rating: 40 percent fresh).
In "Minority Report," set in the future, an officer from a special police unit able to arrest people before they commit crimes is himself accused of a future murder (Rotten Tomatoes rating: 92 percent fresh).
In "Top Gun," students at an elite flying school for fighter pilots compete to be best in the class, while one of the students (Cruise) romances the instructor (Rotten Tomatoes rating: 49 percent fresh).
In "War of the Worlds," as Earth is invated by alien tripod fighting machines, one family fights to survive (Rotten Tomatoes rating: 74 percent fresh).
Even if you consider just the three "fresh" movies, it's still $17 cheaper at this price than if you bought those three films separately.
