Boon23: " My intention as the one authoring the DVD was of course to create a collection of stunning works that should be viewed on DVD.
AMDS intention for each of the shorts is to make possible what seems impossible. Create new plots from different sources.
DVD authoring: I collected the best available sources from the web and painstakingly tried to create the best possible quality conversion of them for the DVD. The result is mediocre. Most of the videos have ghost artifacts or other errors. For some of the old stuff I had to use a very low resolution to present them in a watchable quality.
“Tom Cruise” and “Duel” were not included because the quality was just too bad.
This is mark I of this collection. “Terminator vs Robocop, episode 3″ with a length of 22 minutes will come out soon and I will add it to the collection then as well as a new version of “Scrat in new York” that I found after the DVD was already finished and uploaded.
Video creation: AMDS used scenes from lots of different movies and combined them to a new watching experience, using whatever was technically possible to let them flow as a new plot. He added SFX and new CGI as well as new score and sounds. The result is stunning."

I've been a fan of AMDS for a while now, so when i found this collection of his mash-ups a while ago, it was nice seeing a collection of his stuff that i could watch without having to open up multiple tabs at once.
The only real problem now is the visual quality for the videos hasn't aged well, since AMDS has re-released a good portion of the videos in this in higher quality. I wouldn't mind seeing this released in a higher quality version, maybe a re-release with a DVD-9 or Blu-Ray version for the HD videos, but i doubt that would come out any time soon.
All in all, i would still recommend this until something better comes along.
Oh man, what a bunch of AWESOME mash-ups! I didn't watch all of them, but what I saw blew my balls off.
