I read all 16 books and had purchased these in video many years ago, I gave my video copies to my dentist. I went to see the remake and it isn't as good as these. I'm so glad to have them again. I started rereading the books again and it has inspired me to reach out to people to see the movies with me.
We saw the new "Left Behind" with Nicholas Cage, which we both liked. So, I was a little afraid to re-watch this one (since we'd liked it the first time around) but my husband thought it would be fun. The quality of this set compared to the new movie, well, it's not as good, but once we got past the quality comparison (what is with everybody's clothes being too big?) and some of the special effects, we were hooked and really enjoyed it. I thought Nicholas Cage did a great job, but Brad Johnson looked just how I pictured Ray when I was reading the series. That's OK, though, I never pictured Kirk Cameron as Buck when I was reading the books, either, but I bought into his character the longer I've watched.
I loved the books!! The movies are good for the amount of information covered in them and the first 2 are fairly accurate to the books! The third, however, took too much 'poetic license' in my opinion! I cannot complain about the price at all it is a great price for these movies. I would recommend this to anyone!
