5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent blu ray, September 9, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Altered States [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
Finallly an excellent print of one of my favourite movies. IThese blu ray is cristal clear and sharp. And it is region free, So no issues there either. Pity there are no interviews, documentairies or something like that, only a trailer that is not in high def.
And quit strange on the cover there is only part of the slogan of the film, the whole text should be:
In the basement of a medical school dr.Jessup floats in total darkness. The most terrifying experiment in the history of science is out of control.... and the subject is himself.

4.0 out of 5 stars 3D history lesson, September 9, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: 3-D Rarities [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
It is amazing and an interesting history lesson. 3D is around for a long time and it is just fun to see old images of New York and Washington. I liked the stop motion animation and a nice 3D episode of Casper the friendly ghost. For those who want to know or this is worth the money. If you expect something like a 3D Transformer film from Michael Bay, then stay away. If you are on the other hand interested in 3D and its history, then this is something for you.
Also it's not the most perfect 3D. Some films were just safed in time, so there are some ghosting issues. The booklet inside is informative and gives all the necessary information. There is one thing I really hate though, It's not fair to have a few very nice 3D trailers included without the films. Now I really want to see these films and of course the're not available anywhere ! Maybe another project for the 3D film archives ;-)
And for everyone out there who wants to know or they can see this outside region A? Yes, you can. The disc is region free and can be seen in every region.

5.0 out of 5 stars The figurine of Grimlock and Optimus is very beautiful and bigger then I expected, December 17, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The figurine of Grimlock and Optimus is very beautiful and bigger then I expected. I loved it. I do have a question though ? Why has to cost this only 30 dollars in the USA and 100 dollars in Germany and the Netherlands ??? And beware: the blu-ray is only the 2D version. But I have to admit, I bought this just for the figurine. The film is loud, big and over the top and that's the way I like it. You don't buy a Transformer film for the great story. It's just mindless fun. By the way, I did buy the 3D version of this film in Holland and although it is great, the constant changing of the format between 2.40 and 1.85 (IMAX ?) is irritating. I actually prefer the 2D version, which is in 2.40 all the time.

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I never saw this in an Imax theatre, but the 3D is on my 55 inch television very good. The extended edition is the same as the 3D film, but in the 3D you see sometimes 5 different images at the same time, in the extended edition, these different images are shown one at a time and therefor the film is longer. There are a few extra scenes, but as a whole, there isn't much more information. And last but not least: it is very pleasant to know, that both blu-ray, the 3D and the 2D discs, are region free. The DVD is region 1 locked though.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not region free, August 22, 2008
Important information especially for customers outside the USA. This movie is not region free, but instead region A (America). You cannot play this disc in any European country !!! I have to return my disc, because I cannot play it.
Since blue ray is the winner in the HD format, more and more blue ray discs are no longer region free.
One star for the wrong information by Amazon, not for the film. The film deserves a five star rating.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent movie for the young at heart, January 9, 2007
I'm not going to tell you what a great little film this is. Other reviews already do that. It's just an excellent movie for all who are young at heart. A beautiful film, one of the best of Don Bluth. Forget the sequels, this is the real stuff.

But let me tell you something about the quality of this anniversary dvd. It is absolutely great ! Don't buy the other versions, buy this one. And an advice: don't go looking for a widescreen version. This movie was never made in widescreen but in 4/3 format. If you have a widescreen television, than select 16/9 mode. The top and bottom of the picture "disappear" (actually the're out of range of the television picture). And than you see the picture as it was seen in the theaters. You will notice that you don't loose any of the action !

4.0 out of 5 stars The unknown giant, September 11, 2006
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I never heard of this monster called Gamera before, till I saw it here at Amazon. I read a few of the reviews and thought: "Let's try this".

I'm really glad I did. This is a great collection of three terrific movies. The special effects are stunning. I don't think I ever saw more beautiful explosions. The explosion of the Kyoto train station (in the third movie: Revenge of Iris) is incredible, as well as the total destruction of Tokio when Gamera suddenly appears in that same movie.

And what about the acting. Well, I've seen a lot worse in Godzilla films. The third film is without a doubt the best acted film of the three, but the other two ain't bad at all.

The stories aren't great, the second one is a mess really. There are so many characters you cannot tell them apart, but this second movie has the most fantastic monster though. It is called Legion and it really is a worthy adversary. Great stuff !!!

And then something about the extra's on the disc's: A lot of trailers and an interesting three part interview with the special effects director. But the craziest extra is a soundtrack (on the second film) in which all the characters speak like rednecks and the music is changed to hillbilly style. It's called the Texarcana lake track. It's insane but absolute fun.

Now, the big question, should you buy this. If you like Godzilla films, I think the answer is clear: Yes, absolutely.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great miniseries, September 4, 2006
Let's be clear. This is not the movie ! Hence, the special effects are less. To me that was not a problem though. It's a great miniseries. The only thing I really didn't like were the over the top costums: to big, to much.

And what about the 'Director's cut'. Well it's actually the same as the dvd version you could buy in The Netherlands, but there is one big advantage. This US version has a very interesting commentary track and a lot of specials that inform you about the production. The special about the translites is the most interesting. And what is also important, the picture quality of this US version is much better than the Dutch or European versions. So everyone in Europe. If you have a region free dvd-player: buy this version !
