    4.0 out of 5 stars They Don't Make'em Like This Anymore... May 20, 2006
    Format:DVD
    In a way, I'm quite glad that every attempt to remake this movie has failed to materialize; were Universal to remake it now, it would be a neo-slasher crap fest laced with nothing but screaming teenagers and a totally unsympathetic gore factory of a monster. And while there are purists out there who may claim that the Gill Man doesn't really belong in the company of the other clssic Universal Monsters, the truth is that "The Creature From The Black Lagoon" IS the last great Universal monster movie. What's more, its sequels actually aren't as bad as others may want you to believe, particularly since they do accomplish the rare task of telling a different story in each entry - more than the "Jaws" sequels could manage - and as the central sympathetic character of each piece, the Creature himself does show significant character development over the course of three movies without degenerating into the high-camp approach that has since destroyed the likes of Jason Vorhees and Freddy Krueger.

    DISC ONE:

    CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON

    Where better to start than the beginning? You probably know the drill: a group of scientists - one of whom happens to look particularly gorgeous in a white bathing suit - putters down the Amazon in search of the fossils of a 'missing link' between man and fish, only to find the living truth hiding out in a forgotten tributary. And it becomes clear that the Gill Man wants only two things: female companionship and solitude from everybody else. The plot pretty standard sci-fi fare for the 1950s (and earlier when you consider the first two movies are naught but a submerged remake of 'King Kong', but more on that later), but it's the execution of it that sets CFTBL above all other contenders of the era.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Creature Features October 12, 2005
    Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
    As one of the six "Legacy" collections featuring the popular Universal monsters, the Creature set has some distinctly unique features. In one way, it's the sparsest collection, with only three movies, but it also is the only one with commentaries on all the films. Perhaps more importantly is the nature of the Creature himself. While the other monsters are either purely supernatural (Dracula, the Wolf Man), purely man-made (Frankenstein's monster, the Invisible Man) or a combination of the two (the Mummy), only the Creature is a natural creature.

    What also stands out in the Creature movies is that humanity in general comes off as the bad guys and the Creature is the most sympathetic figure. Acting in a generally defensive manner, the Creature is subjected to greater and greater torments. He actually is similar in this fashion to King Kong (which is not surprising, since the first two movies, when combined, are essentially remakes of that giant ape classic).

    As is typically the case, the first movie - The Creature from the Black Lagoon - is the best in the bunch. Several scientists - as well as the essential female love interest - go to South America in search of the bones of a legendary fish-man, only to find a living one instead. The Creature develops an interest in the woman even as it wages war with the intruders in its Black Lagoon, leading to several deaths before the final confrontation.

    In Revenge of the Creature, the Creature is captured and brought to a marine amusement park, where it is chained up, studied and displayed for the masses. (In both this movie and the third one, there is a lot of confusion between salt-water and fresh water life, with the Creature forced to alternate between the two.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Great set, Great extras, Great price, but no 3-D. August 27, 2004
    Format:DVD
    Both CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON and REVENGE OF THE CREATURE were shot in 3-D, but this set includes flat prints only, so I'll deduct one star for that.

    Still, you can't blame the studio too much, as recreating the polarized, dual projector 3-D experience at home is no easy feat. No, these films were NOT shown in the inferior red/blue anaglyph format back in the 50s, though they have been shown that way on TV and in some revivals. Those versions look awful, and are an insult to the original 3-D versions. I'm glad they chose not to include downconverted anaglyph prints on the DVD, and the ColorCode format is even worse. The only choice for good 3-D at home is field sequential, but the glasses are $30 a pair and can't be included in the box. The studio COULD have included a FS 3-D version of the first and second films along with the modified flat print along with instructions on how to purchase the glasses if people were interested. However, even FS 3-D isn't perfect so at this time we will have to live with flat versions on this set. I've seen the original 3-D versions of these movies in all their polarized, clear glasses glory and for sure, people seeing these movies flat are missing out.

    The final film, CREATURE WALKS AMONG US, was an ordinary flat film.

    The extras on the set are worth the price alone, all films have audio commentaries, and REVENGE and WALKS AMONG US have cast member participation!

    A great set, if not perfect.

    P.S....the films are all B/W as intended.

    Why no 3D/
    That's an often repeated error. Neither CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON nor REVENGE OF THE CREATURE were originally shown in the inferior red/blue anaglyph method. Like all of the other classic 3-D movies, these were originally released in polarized (clear glasses) format. The anaglyph... Read More
