HASH(0x9efce06c) out of 5 stars It looks absolutely fantastic on this new Blu-ray April 26 2016

If you've never seen Journey To The Seventh Planet, you might wonder why there's a new Blu-ray release of it. If you're a fan, prepare to be totally blown away. It looks absolutely fantastic on this new Blu-ray. You can almost read the labels on the dials in the spaceship. We know the original Danish version was "lost." People are looking for it. But this is the American release created by Ib Melchior after the directing efforts of Sid Pink, and it's amazing. Uranus, or an alien on Uranus, can read minds and simulate any memories of the spaceship crew. Uranus is a world of simulacra. Maybe the alien, itself, is a creation of the mind of Uranus, or the mind of man. Yes, many people think this movie is a little sexist. But, remember, it's the memories of the spaceship's all male crew. I suggest you buy this Blu-ray and decide for yourself. The commentary by Tim Lucas is packed full of information and certainly worth a listen. Did you know the original soundtrack, now lost, was state of the art electronic music? Now, I do, because of Tim Lucas's insightful commentary. For fans of Journey To The Seventh Planet, this is a must buy. Highly recommended.

HASH(0x9fa3eb94) out of 5 stars So bad it's good! April 3 2016
By The Movie Man - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray
“Journey to the Seventh Planet," a 1962 Danish-American co-production, opens in the far distant year of 2001. The United Nations has sent a special team of scientists to explore Uranus. This group discovers a planet similar to Earth, complete with a small, Danish-looking village filled with beautiful women. Underneath this utopian veneer is a force that uses the crew’s memories against them so it can take their spaceship back to Earth and conquer it. Directed by Sidney W. Pink (“Reptilicus,” “The Angry Red Planet”), the film stars John Agar, a regular leading man in low-budget science-fiction films of the era.

This B movie has an interesting premise: by 2001, space travel has become commonplace and with it peace on Earth. The United Nations rules the planet and rivalries among nations have ceased in the name of the common good. However, the movie can’t help but slip into one cliche after another. Combined with sub-par acting and bargain-basement special effects, the primary entertainment value is seeing how bad things get.

There are two kinds of bad movies. One that is just a series of missteps in which inept plotting and scripting result in a dull product that fails to draw us in. The other is well-intentioned but turns out to be pure camp. Think of “Plan 9 From Outer Space” or “Bride of the Monster,” two of Ed Wood’s cinematic treasures, and you get the idea. They’re so bad, they are highly entertaining. “Journey to the Seventh Planet” falls into this category. It’s so jaw-droppingly awful that you just have to see what comes next. The dialogue is especially wacky and the actors deliver it with dead seriousness. Wonderful!

Bonus features on the Blu-ray release include audio commentary by film historian Tim Lucas and the theatrical trailer.

HASH(0x9ee6e7a4) out of 5 stars John Agar & pals shoot off into space to penetrate the mysterious depths of Uranus! Fun old school sci-fi looks amazing on Blu! June 27 2016
By Hose Knows (aka Jinzo Ningen) - Published on Amazon.com

THE STORY: Mankind has at last reached the stars. A shipful of sturdy science studs rockets forth, eager to explore & probe Uranus, (insert your own butt joke here). But waiting for them is an evil space brain, stranded for eons on the icy planet. This malevolent mentality manipulates our brave astro-stallions with the oldest trick in the book: sex. Will the fiendish intellect from beyond the stars succeed? Will our horndog heroes give in to temptation and wind up marooned on the 7th planet, victims of their lusty libidos?? Tune in and find out!

THOUGHTS: A really cornball Danish sci-fi flick, from the same gang who gave us the immortal REPTILICUS. The effects are the usual low budget stuff typical of the period, including some laughable hand-scratched raygun zipzaps. That said, the eye-popping, brightly-colored space suits with the blocky plexiglass visors & antenna are a pretty cool adaption of the traditional Air Force hand-me-downs used in so many other "futuristic" space flicks. The sparing use of stop-motion is fun though crude and not entirely successful. A handful of leggy, Euro models are the bait for our hunky explorers. A couple are easy on the eyes but depending on what floats your boat, you may find a couple to be quite um... un-pretty. Watching the guys & gals in the (mostly) Danish cast struggling to phonetically sound out their English dialogue (which was mercifully dubbed later) is worth a few chuckles, if nothing else. JOURNEY TO THE SEVENTH PLANET is undeniably silly stuff, and I'm not quite sure exactly why I like it as much as I do. (I suspect that the combination of clunky stop-mo bits and jazzy John Agar as our testosterone-fueled leading man has much to do with it.)

THE BLU-RAY: Fans of this film should jump for joy at the terrific job Kino Lorber did bringing it to home video in this splendid Blu-ray release! The film looks pretty amazing, all things considered. Picture is quite sharp, the colors are solid & strong. Little to no pixelation or artifacting. Audio portion is equally impressive; no hissing, fading or distortion. Special mention to the absolutely gorgeous main menu display!!! It's a screen-filling work of breath-taking beauty that uses the film's theatrical poster as a 16x9 formatted backdrop to your viewing & listening options, backed by a snippet from the movie's hilarious, lounge lizardy theme song, courtesy of Copenhagen crooner Otto Brandenburg. Minimal extras include theatrical trailers for this and other Kino Lorber releases, and an audio commentary track from Tim Lucas that is fun and informative, if a little on the dry side. This is as nice a hi-def release as you're like to ever see for such an odd sci-fier. I'm very pleased that I sprang for the double-dip upgrade to Blu from my old MGM 'Midnite Movies' DVD. BOTTOM LINE: Sure it's kitsch & corny, but JTTSP is chock full of that comforting old school sci-fi innocence which enchants fans of the genre and, honestly, you'll never see this film looking better than here on this hi-def Blu-ray from Kino Lorber. If you're an aficionado of these kinds of movies then this is one JOURNEY that I can whole-heartedly recommend! 5 STARS!
