I don't agree with this no box-set thing. DVDs that are sold in box-sets are sold like that for a reason. As a dvd category, we are not judging on the movies individually, but on the product as a whole, specifically the special features. Which ever dvd contains the most-comprehensive special features should be the winner, because the special features are included specifically to help you understand the film better. If it just so happens that a film follows or precedes a film in the series, combining the films in a box set only stands to enhance the understanding of the film and the series as a whole.
When you purchase a box-set, that is the dvd product, and should be judged on its own, not its individual parts.
Including box sets as a whole gives them an unfair advantage. Like, a Kubrick Collection or a trilogy would probably be better than a given individual movie.
No shit it would be better, that's part of the product. When we're judging dvds, it should be the whole that stands to make it the best selection. Sure, director's box-sets might have grounds to be disqualified because there isn't much of a link between the stories of the films. However, Blue, White, and Red should not be set apart, they are one in the same, they go together. Indiana Jones should not be split up either, the bonus disc is the clincher of the dvd set, you wouldn't vote for Temple of Doom, because you'd be voting based on the film. Would you want us to nominate the bonus disc only? The films are a part of the set. This is really a bad move.
