1. Richard III: Criterion Collection [Blu-Ray] (1955)
Reviewed by Colin Jacobson: Although I liked Laurence Olivier’s Oscar-winning take on Hamlet, I felt a little reluctant to view his version of Richard III, as I feared Hamlet would be the exception and not the rule. Happily, I needn’t have worried, as Olivier succeeded once again; he brought us a vivid, involving Richard III with few flaws on display. The Blu-ray boasts excellent v

2. Spartacus (Restored Edition) [Blu-Ray] (1960)
Reviewed by Colin Jacobson: As a film, Spartacus seems erratic and occasionally wearying, but it offers quite a few solid moments, most of which came due to some terrific supporting performances from the film’s antagonists. The movie also picks up as it progressed, and much of its most satisfying material takes place during its final act. Starring Kirk Douglas, Laurence Olivier.

5. Marathon Man [Blu-Ray] (1976)
Reviewed by Colin Jacobson: The first – and only – cinematic pairing of Dustin Hoffman and Laurence Olivier turned into a minor classic. Marathon Man suffers from a convoluted plot but succeeds due to its solid acting and tense nature. Starring Dustin Hoffman, Laurence Olivier. Warner, $9.98, 9/10/2013.

6. The Boys From Brazil (1978)
Reviewed by Colin Jacobson: While I can't claim that The Boys From Brazil is a classic, it's definitely a compelling and entertaining ride. It's worth watching just to see some fun and physical performances from some great actors. Starring Gregory Peck, Laurence Olivier. Artisan, $9.98, 12/14/1999.

7. Battle Of Britain (1969)
Reviewed by Colin Jacobson: Something like The Battle of Britain should have been right up my alley. Unfortunately, the film skimped on excitement and concentrated too much on spectacle and its thinly drawn characters. Starring Michael Caine, Laurence Olivier. MGM, $14.95, 5/20/2003.

Reviewed by Colin Jacobson: The first – and last – cinematic pairing of Dustin Hoffman and Laurence Olivier turned into a minor classic. Marathon Man suffers from a convoluted plot but succeeds due to its solid acting and tense nature ... I can’t say I’m wild about this release, but I like the movie well enough to endorse it, especially since you can get it for less than $10. Starr

9. Battle Of Britain: Collector's Edition (1969)
Reviewed by Colin Jacobson: I don’t like Battle enough to recommend it for a “blind buy”, but this is a good purchase for fans. That goes for folks who already own the original “movie-only” DVD. This special edition offers improved picture and audio plus many extras not found on the prior disc. Fans will be happy to get this upgrade. Starring Michael Caine, Laurence Olivier. MGM, $

10. Spartacus [Blu-Ray] (1960)
Reviewed by Colin Jacobson: (C)oncerns make it very tough for me to recommend this Blu-ray to fans. No, Spartacus didn’t look awful, but it gave us a transfer far inferior to what we should have received. Until/unless Universal fixes this disappointing presentation, fans should just stick with their DVDs, especially if they already own the Criterion edition from 2001. Starring Kir
