I just finished my movie marathon box sets page. My favorite available box set is the Marvel Cinematic Universe (Phase 1) box set – complete with its own functioning Tesseract (your mileage and destructive power may vary)!
Is this really news? Nope. I’m just pleased with myself since it took a long time to get this page up and looking good. Bonus: I get a kickback every time you buy one of these box sets using the provided link. So this is a win-win between me and you.
So what are you waiting for? Fulfill your dream of owning a box with unlimited entertainment potential…while simultaneously fulfilling my dream of earning passive income.
Best Buy is selling Bond 50 for $100 on Black Friday! How do I know? I got it! Behold the 24 disc box set in all of its glory!
The 23 films are 48 hours long, and the box set comes with a bonus disc and 120 additional hours of content (video, interviews, commentaries, etc.). That’s 24 Blu-Ray discs at $4 a pop. Now that’s what I call a movie marathon in a box.
If you are doing any Best Buy Black Friday shopping this year (2014) do yourself a favor and scoop up this gem. Best Buy is open at 8 AM Friday. Then all you have to do is find some time in the next couple days (or couple months) to get through them all! Awesome!
The other side of the coin is that, perhaps watching 15 movies in a row is just too much. Speaking to co-founder Jon yesterday he said that if we’d split this marathon into two, he may have enjoyed it a bit more than he did. I’m inclined to agree. I don’t think we’ll be doing one of this length again…Perhaps if my co-founders had seen each film individually this could have been a different story, but as it stands I didn’t convert them to the kaiju way of cinema.
Ok – the basic facts are out of the way now. What are the longest film series that you might actually want to watch, and have a decent chance of actually getting your hands on? I’ve put together my top twenty long film series list below and sorted it by total runtime (not the number of movies).
The result was interesting. Despite having 28 films, Godzilla is not the king of the movie marathon as I’ve previously reported! It’s actually James Bond, who has a 6 hour lead over Godzilla. In the nerd wars, Star Trek handily beats both Harry Potter and Star Wars, with time to spare.
Did I leave some film series out? Definitely. But the real question is: did I leave out any series you might actually want to watch from beginning to end? Comment if I did!
