What follows applies not only to this item, but also to most DVD boxed sets and trilogies sold by Amazon. It is vital for the purchaser to know, BEFORE buying, what movies the boxed sets contain. At first blush, this may seem like a silly remark, since it is supposedly common knowledge to movie buffs what three movies are involved in - in this instance - Resident Evil. But hold on a second -- there is an animation title in this series called Resident Evil: Degeneration, which is all CGI and which may very well be part of this trilogy of movies offered for sale at the expense of, say, Resident Evil: Apocalypse.
By the same token, The Die Hard set may or may not include the one with Kevin Smith as Warlock, and it is only by reading customer comments that we know what is included in the set. It is VITAL that we know BEFOREHAND what movies make up a boxed set instead of trying to return an unwanted collection because of a disparity between customer expectation and what was shipped. If the "Product Details" section were more informative (as in the case of the jaw-dropping level of detail presented for the Star Wars Prequel Trilogy), it would help both Amazon and the customer, as an ounce of prevention would certainly be worth more than a pound of cure in the unfortunate event that what was shipped did not meet the purchaser's expectations, and the order then had to be returned.
