    5.0 out of 5 stars

    This review is from: ESPN Films 30 for 30 Gift Set Collection, Volume 1 (DVD)

    My brother got me this for Christmas, and it is fantastic! I am a fairly casual sports fan so I didn’t know what my level of interest in all different documentaries would be (I have never watched hockey or rugby, and I am not wild about basketball), but to my amazement, I was absolutely captivated by all 15 segments. My initial impression was that it would be more geared to the avid sports fan using a lot of dry statistics and specialized knowledge of the games (which couldn’t be more boring to me), but instead it encompasses everything that makes sports so fascinating. It is about the struggle of communities versus corporations (That Band That Wouldn’t Die), goodness versus glamour (King’s Ransom, Run Ricky Run), aging legends (Muhammad and Larry), and microwave dynasties (The U). This is a brilliant dvd collection that isn’t just about sports, but everything that is wonderful (and terrible for that matter) about sports. It is history, it is culture, it is humanity. It is tears of triumph and tears of defeat, and these are the stories that, in a lot of ways, bring people together and tear people apart. Sports, like art and literature, is a reflection of culture and this collection brilliantly marries the two. This is a must own for any sports fan, history fan, film-maker, or cultural analist. Highly recommended.

    I’ve been waiting for the 30 for 30 set on DVD since they started running the documentaries. I’ve only been able to catch bits and pieces of them when aired, but I knew it was only a matter of time before the DVDs hit.

    If you have anybody on your holiday gift list that likes sports and is hard to buy for, try this. Just about everything in the sports world from Gretzky to Reggie Miller to the USFL is touched on, so any general knowledge sports fan, like myself, would be thrilled.

    I have not watched all 15 (remember, this is volume 1) of the films, probably 5 or 6 so far, and they are all pretty good. Some are more interesting than others, but that will come down to personal preference.

    The packaging is great. Inside the slide out box are six slim cases that have the films split across six discs. I bet they could have got it down to four, but then they couldn’t charge as much! Some people may hate the “raffle” ticket type design that is on the packaging and the menus, but I really like it.

    My only complaint thus far is that the menus seem slow. It’s possible that it’s my PS3, so I will not deduct for it, but just wanted to mention it.

    All in all, a great collection for sports fans.
