Editorial Reviews

4 classic films from MGM!

The Man from Planet X
A reporter in the Scottish Highlands is confronted by a friendly alien who pleads for aid for his freezing planet.

Beyond the Time Barrier
A U.S. Air Force test pilot crashes through the time barrier into the world of 2024, which is inhabited by the last remnants of Earth's civilization that escaped the cosmic plague of 1971.

The Time Travelers
A scientist steps through a time portal, travels 107 years into the future and finds a barren underground post-nuclear war world where a handful of "normal humans" are being attacked by mutants.

The Angry Red Planet
An expedition to Mars runs into all sorts of alien terrors, including unfriendly Martian plants and a terrifying kind of giant mouse/spider hybrid.

Customer Reviews

I think this is a great collection of old science fiction movies.
indijo
All I can say is each movie looked fine on my ordinary dvd player and I didn't notice a single blip or problem.
robyn
Movies were great -- just as I remembered them the first time I saw them.

The good news: The Time Travelers and Beyond the Time Barrier finally get a legitimate DVD release! Will all those crummy bootleg DVDs online disappear? I hope so! (These titles are NOT in public domain, BTW, no matter what the bootleggers claim!) More good news: Time Travelers is presented in its correct 1.66:1 widescreen aspect ratio (cropped from the original 4x3 full-frame negative, as it would have been projected in theaters in 1964.)

The not-so-good news: fitting 310 minutes onto one single-sided DVD means that the encode data rate is very low. The first three films are "okay" looking, considering this, but the last film, the very fun Angry Red Planet, suffers from some very heavy blocking and compression artifacts in places (take a look after the 27 minute mark for some sections that are below VHS quality and break up considerably.)

I can't figure out the business decision to add two films that have been widely released before with the two that have not, and then cramming them all onto one DVD in less-than-optimal quality. What makes the decision even stranger is that the two "new" films, Time Travelers and Time Barrier, are sourced from really high quality recent HD film transfers, from great original film sources. Both have been available recently on either Netflix or Amazon online (in quality that seems better than on this DVD), and they show in HD on the MGM cable TV channel (not available everywhere). Are these films being "saved" for eventual Blu Ray release in high quality? That's the only logical reason, perhaps, for this crammed low-resolution DVD.

Still, at (about) $5 this release is welcome! But I'm betting that the vast majority of fans, like me, are more than willing to pay real money to have Time Travelers and Time Barrier on stand-alone DVD or Blu Ray in better quality. Please, Timeless/Shout Factory, let consumers know what your plans are.

As a longtime fan and collector of sci-fi films, I was very surprised to see a major studio offering this collection at a dirt-cheap price. One might expect to pay the current price ($5.00) for ONE barely-known film from public-domain outfits like Alpha Video. But FOUR fairly well-known b-movies, from MGM, for less than the price of one? I took a chance and pre-ordered my collection, and I'm glad I did.

"Movies 4 U: Sci-Fi Classics" represents the major-studio DVD debut of both Beyond the Time Barrier and The Time Travelers. Most of us collectors would gladly have paid more just to finally get good copies of these films. The other two (Man from Planet X and Angry Red Planet) were previously released as part of MGM'S Midnite Movies series. All four films look great. I haven't done a side-by-side comparison of the latter two films with my Midnite Movies copies, but they seem to look just as good as the previous releases (why would the studio not use the same prints if they already owned them, right?). This was my first time viewing The Time Travelers, and although I'd have to say it's the least of bunch (in terms of the film itself, I mean), it is the only one offered in the widescreen format. The print used for Beyond the Time Barrier is a huge improvement over the Sinister Cinema release that's been floating around for years.

I'm also a collector of sci-fi film trailers, and I have to say I was a little disappointed that these were not included, especially since trailers were included on the MM releases, and trailers for the other 2 films are easy to find on the internet.

As for the films themselves, Angry Red Planet is certainly the best, with its far-out visuals and memorable creatures.

Four shlock sci-fi flicks on one disc at a super bargain price! They are all on one dual layer disc (allowing only about 2 GB disc space per title) but they all look pretty good. Only negative is that only one of the films "The Time Travelers" is anamorphic wide screen although three out of four were made in the wide screen era and should be presented in wide screen format, either letterbox or (preferably) anamorphic. "Man From Planet X" was made in 1951 before the 1953 widespread aspect ratio change so it's 1.37:1 ratio is correct. With the other two non widescreen open matte titles you can set your widescreen HDTV to "Zoom" (not "Stretch") and see them more or less as they were intended to be seen. "Angry Red Planet" definitely looks more grainy and soft that way though...so take your choice! Only extra is a still gallery, wish there were trailers but there aren't! I doubt we'll see these looking any better anytime soon so I'd say grab them while you have the chance...especially at this cheap price! The companion disc "Movies 4 You - More Sci Fi Classics" is even better with three out of four of the films (including "Brain That Wouldn't Die"!) anamorphic wide screen! Get them both!

Unlike at least one other reviewer, I waited to actually get this DVD before reviewing it. It is great seeing these old sci-fi movies in crystal-clear versions, rather than the multi-generational bootlegs that have proliferated over the years. The Angry Red Planet has been on DVD before, but I don't think the others have had legal releases yet. The Time Travelers is presented in 1:66-1 widescreen format, while the others are all full-screen (1:33-1). The only one that normally would've been anamorphic is ARP, but I think most people aren't going to care either way on that one. The other three movies are the reason to get this DVD.

There's no big quality loss here with four movies on one disc, and all look good on both my laptop and TV. This is definitely worth the $5 price tag (plus shipping), especially for the science fiction fan out there.
