How useful is all this stuff?

So there's a pretty sweet deal it seems over here https://www.jrrshop.com/izotope-music-essentials-bundle but I'm not sure how useful most of this stuff is. I could see immediate use for RX elements for the use of the noise removal as I'm currently working on a sample library of my own, but it seems like some of the other stuff (specifically nectar, neutron and ozone) is a bunch of "put this on your mix to make it more mixier" type stuff that I'd like to avoid unless there are really useful tools inside those plugins. It's also worth noting that it seems most of them are geared towards vocals, and although I'll probably end up mixing a vocalist at some point, I'm currently 100% doing fairly traditional orchestral film/game scoring. The other plugins are just some cool fx that I don't need at the moment but it can't hurt to have I guess.

Bottom line: Do these things (Nectar, Ozone, Neutron) do anything special that it isn't better to just do manually?
