For those thinking of upgrading to the Blu-ray of "Logan's Run" there's good news and bad news. The bad news is that while this does improve on the original DVD, it's not a huge jump in quality. The film needs some restoration and it appears this is a new transfer (the same one that was used for the reissued DVD with the same cover). The image quality is soft throughout lacking the sharp image quality that you'd expect from a recent film or one that has been restored.
The other bit of bad news is that we get none of the extras that were included on the old three disc laserdisc instead getting only the original special features ported over from the DVD (which is good news in a way since this could have been bare bones).We also get the commentary track featuring director Michael Anderson, star Michael York and costume designer Bob Thomas discussing the making of the film.
Anderson points out in the commentary track WHY there are some plot holes (the film under went some heavy editing to allow more showings per day and move it from a potential "R" rating to "PG")but it's a pity that none of this footage has been found or and restored for a director's cut more than likely the footage is missing.
(The 2002 original soundtrack album CD by the way notes some of the sequences in the booklet that were cut including a longer sequence in the ice cave with box--cut to earn a PG rating and some other sequences which appear to be lost)
The flaws in the film are less of an issue for me 33 years later. Sure, the production design can be cheesy at times but "Logan's Run" is a product of its time.Read more ›
There are some pretty bizarre scenes in the lieu. The whole rite of the carousel is actually quite disturbing if you think about it. An entire quadrant of the city is filled with derelicts and gangmembers, and of course this part is the one called "The Cathedral". On the other hand, there's visual candy as well, with superb modeling for the cityscapes and, yes, Jenny Agutter in a miniskirt that only gets more revealing as it slowly falls apart over the course of the movie.
Unlike THX 1138, Logan's Run doesn't end upon successful exit of the city; that's only the first half. Afterward the audience is treated to a gorgeous vision of the empty and abandoned Washington D.C.Read more ›

A nice experience visually, but a simple predictable plot and boy-meets-girl story in a product that has a stilted, outdated feel.Published 4 days ago by Ann
One of mine and my late husband's favorite 1970's movies! I was thrilled to find it available for purchase.Published 4 days ago by Amazon Customer
Great 70's science fiction. Special effects a bit primitive by today's standards but that's part of what makes 70's sci-fi so awesome! Interesting characters and a great story!Published 29 days ago by Justin

|Help! Looking for old Sci-Fi movie from the 60s||
Ever see "Planet of the Vampires"? I remember seeing both versions of the Time Travelers but Planet of the Vampires has stuck with me for a very long time too(and it's easier to come by on DVD)!
Of course I had nighmares of repeating history like in the Time Travelers...

|Does Anybody Know Anything About This Release?||
I'm not sure, but I think the original Warner release of Logan's Run was the old style snap case (cardboard with some plastic) and this is just a reissue of that release in the now standard plastic clamshell case (what almost all DVDs come in now). Warner has been slowly doing thse reissues over... Read More
