From the Studio

20 Million Miles to Earth
When an American spaceship crash-lands off the coast of Sicily, a rescue team discovers that the crew has brought back a gelatinous mass that soon hatches and evolves into a strange bi-ped creature which increases in size rapidly. Soon 20-feet tall, the creature rampages through Rome before being destroyed as it seeks refuge in the Colosseum.

The 7th Voyage of Sinbad
It's an incredible cinematic adventure as the legendary Sinbad sets off on a dangerous journey to the mysterious Island of Colossus. His quest is to break the spell cast over his beloved princess by a diabolical magician. But before he can save her, Sinbad must battle an awesome collection of mythical monsters, the man-eating Cyclops, a saber-wielding skeleton, a ferocious two-headed bird called the Roc and a fire-breathing dragon. Starring Kerwin Mathews, Kathryn Grant, Torin Thatcher and highlighted by the stunning visual effects mastery of Ray Harryhausen. Now in a pristine, hi-definition transfer that captures the magic of Harryhausen's "eye-popping" special effects in dazzling Technicolor.

It Came from Beneath the Sea
A giant stop-motion-animated octopus (with six arms) attacks San Francisco. A pair of scientists and a nuclear sub captain try to stop it before it tears down the Golden Gate Bridge.

Earth vs. the Flying Saucers While driving through the desert with his wife Carol Marvin to a military base to send the eleventh rocket to the orbit of Earth for helping the exploration of the outer space in the Operation Sky Hook, Dr. Russell A. Marvin and Carol see a flying saucer and accidentally records a message in their tape recorder. Once in the base, Dr. Russell is informed by his father-in-law and general that the ten first satellites had mysteriously felt on Earth. When Dr. Russell decodes the message, he encounters the aliens that ask him to schedule a meeting with the leaders of Earth in Washington in 56 days with the intention to invade Earth without panicking the population. Dr. Russell develops an anti-magnetic weapon that becomes that last hope of human race against the hostile aliens.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Blu Ray box set! July 23 2012
By Stephen Bieth TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I took advantage of Amazon Canada's one day sale on this. I have been wanting to pick it up but always skipped ordering it because of the price. I am so glade I did. Two of the films I had never seen. Clips in documentaries but never the whole film. These are what would be concidered "B" films but as R.H. Says "In budget only". I have always loved monster movies. I know most are crap but for some reason I am always in the mood for these and this has four of the best. All three of the films shot in black and white can now also be seen colorized. I have never been a fan of colorized films but they do look almost like they were shot in Colour. You do get the option of watching them in the original B&W. The extras never end. Interveiws with Ray Harryhausen himself. Doc's on the film as well as the restoration and colorization processes. You name it it's on here.
If you like drive in movie Monster films from the 50's this is for you. If you are a lover of stop motion animation this is a must. Even Tom Hanks is a Ray Harryhausen fan. At an award show when he met him you could see how star struck he was. Then his comment "most people say Citzen Kane is the greatest film of all times. I say Jason and the Argonauts!". That film is not included in this set but the "Seventh Voyage Of Sinbad" is. Which is big budget. The other three films were low budget. Hence the Octopus having on six tentacles to save time and money. Any serouse film fan should definatly check this out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Harryhausen Blu-ray Nov. 23 2008
By Harryhausen Fan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Blu-ray
If you're a Ray Harryhausen fan you couldn't be more happy to see his films on Blu-ray. This boxed set offers four early movies. Earth vs. The Flying Saucers, It Came From Beneath The Sea, and 20 Million Miles To Earth give you the option of watching the films in black and white or restored color. Although I liked watching the colorized versions I still preferred the original black and white. The 7th Voyage of Sinbad is in color only.

Picture quality was a major step up from the dvd versions but we're talking about 50 year old movies so don't expect pristine transfers. What really jumps out at you are the remixed high definition soundtracks. They sounded amazing. You really get a feel for the sound when watching the Sinbad movies' beginning credits.

Extras are very good with some new documentaries. All in all it's definitely worth it if you're a Harryhausen fan. Even if you're not there's something magical watching the stop motion animation from the master of the science. These movies should start a new generation of fans. I can't wait for the rest of Ray's movies to be released on Blu-ray. Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Earth vs. The Flying Saucers in HD! Oh, and some other movies... March 5 2011
By A. Gammill - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Like all the reviewers here, I've been a fan of the fantasy film work of Ray Harryhausen since I was a kid. Fantastic journeys with Sinbad, Jason, and others are among my fondest childhood movie memories. But true science fiction was always my first love. So that's why I'm so excited that, among the many great films Harryhausen worked on, EARTH VS. THE FLYING SAUCERS has finally made its way to Blu-ray.

While it never makes the Top 10 list of 50's sci-fi flicks, I think it belongs there, alongside the original The War of the Worlds (Special Collector's Edition), Forbidden Planet [Blu-ray], and This Island Earth. There were other alien invasion films during the decade, but none deliver the goods like Earth vs. The Flying Saucers. And it's not just because of the master animator's incredible effects work. The story, though certainly dated, holds up well for what it is. A jaded viewer will spot the cliches: Studly scientist (Hugh Marlowe) in love with the General's daugher (Joan Taylor), a military that is actually competent and helpful, and so on. But to my mind, these are things to cherish about the film rather than being deficits.

To be fair to the whole box set, ALL the movies here are great in their own way. THE SEVENTH VOYAGE OF SINBAD is certainly the best of Harryhausen's trilogy of film featuring the adventure-loving sailor. 20 MILLION MILES TO EARTH features one of his earliest beloved creatures, the Ymir, and uses Italian scenery to great effect (in an interview included on the disc, Harryhausen admits he chiefly accepted the job to get a free trip to Rome!). IT CAME FROM BENEATH THE SEA is probably the least-known film, but holds its own against the onslaught of giant-creature flicks of the time.

OK, if you're a fan, you may know all of this already. So what about the Blu-ray discs, you say? I own all the films on DVD (including TWO previous releases of Earth vs. The Flying Saucers...hey, I told you upfront I love that movie!), including the Legend Films colorized versions of Earth and 20 Million Miles. And I can tell you that the improved resolution is noticeable but may NOT be enough for casual fans to upgrade. As someone else noted, these films are pretty old. And there's only so much you can do with them. If by chance you don't have the DVD's, then certainly you should go straight for the Blu-ray's. Note that each film has a wealth of supplemental materials, but these are all holdovers from the most recent DVD releases. So the only real reason to upgrade is if you already know you love these movies, and want to see them in the highest possible resolution.

Like I said, I'm a fan. So it was worth it to me. I've been watching these movies for almost 40 years, from staying up to watch "All Nite Movies" on a local channel, to currently enjoying them in true 1080p definition on a 52" HDTV. It's truly a movie-lovers dream come true. Now, we just need the rest of the Harryhausen catalog released.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Wonderful Upgrade! Oct. 30 2010
By Rich - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
If you are a Classic Sci-Fi fan, this collection is a must! Having owned the DVD versions(which were also very good), these BR transfers are a tremendous upgrade in video and audio performance. The included colorized versions are also terrific! Along with nice packaging and a decent price, this a no brainer! Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent value June 7 2011
By Boba Dad - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
No sense in reviewing the movies as I'm sure everyone knows about these films. I'm just floored by the fact that the bluray version came out so well.
And to switch over mid stream from color to b&w and back again. It's a great way to compare footage. And it even has subtitles. Lots off features. What more can a Harryhausen fan want?
Averages out to 8 bucks a film.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Godfather Of Stop-Motion. April 23 2010
By S. E. Hermo - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Well, I was certainly suprised to see a Blu-ray disc set of 4 Ray Harryhausen films. And what a set. If only more films were released like this we all would be happy little campers. 3 of the 4 films are in glorious black & white. The 4th one is in color. The 3 black & white films also come in a colorized version that fit the time period of these films. Watching the colorized version reminds me of watching the films back in the 70's on TV. While I usually can't stand colorization, the technique used for the 3 film seems to work. I also think that young children, and adults well over 30 years old will be the only ones who really enjoy this box set. If you grew up watching these films on TV, then you must get them. Sometimes there is something to be said for nostalgia.
