All three films feature audio mastered in Dolby Digital Surround with a choice of English, French, and Spanish soundtracks. (Higher Learning also includes an English audio track remixed for Dolby Digital 5.1 and a Portuguese-dubbed version in Dolby Digital Surround.) The sole bonus item on Boyz N The Hood is the film's original theatrical trailer, while Poetic Justice and Higher Learning both feature commentary tracks from Singleton, original theatrical trailers, and biographies and credits for the key creative personnel.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
One of the most successful and provocative African-American directors to emerge in the wake of Spike Lee's trailblazing success, John Singleton consistently lends his creative voice to commendable projects that explore problems unique to the black community. This DVD box set collects three of his best movies. Boyz N the Hood 1991, his impressive, attention-grabbing first film and, to many critics, still his best, deals with the efforts of divorced father Laurence Fishburne to steer his young son away from the destructive and senseless violence that permeates their South Central Los Angeles neighborhood. Poetic Justice 1993 features pop star Janet Jackson in her first starring role, playing a South Central beautician who shuns the world after her boyfriend is murdered. Rapper Tupac Shakur is surprisingly effective as the mailman whose attentiveness wins her over. Somewhat more ambitious is Higher Learning 1995, an ensemble piece set at a large university where students divided along racial, ethnic, and sexual lines try to find common ground. Fishburne plays a professor who takes the angry student-athlete Omar Epps under his wing, and Kristy Swanson, Jennifer Connelly, Ice Cube, Michael Rapaport, Busta Rhymes, and Tyra Banks fill out the cast. While Singleton occasionally succumbs to melodramatic urges, his films deal with complex issues in generally mature and thoughtful ways, and nowhere is this more evident than in the three early works collected in this box set.
