    I think this review has got to be filed under "totally pointless".

    A 7 movie box set and yet the reviewer admits he only received two movies for review, namely We're Not Married and Love Nest, both made when Monroe was little more than a bit part player.

    Given that the box set contains such acknowledged gems as "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes" and "Bus Stop" among others, and that the reviewer admits to never having seen a Monroe movie other than the two supplied, the review is virtually useless.

    This is akin to basing a review of The Beatles career on their early Hamburg recordings as a backing band for Tony Sheridan and ignoring everything that came after 1961.

    While I acknowledge it is not the reviewer's fault that he has received only two movies (and the two most obscure ones at that) out of seven to review, it does not change the fact that the review is all but useless and surely should not have been carried out in the first place.

    Yeah, it's a shame we can't always provide exactly what everyone wants... but we do our best :)
