20 Million Miles to Earth
When an American spaceship crash-lands off the coast of Sicily, a rescue team discovers that the crew has brought back a gelatinous mass that soon hatches and evolves into a strange bi-ped creature which increases in size rapidly. Soon 20-feet tall, the creature rampages through Rome before being destroyed as it seeks refuge in the Colosseum.

The 7th Voyage of Sinbad
It's an incredible cinematic adventure as the legendary Sinbad sets off on a dangerous journey to the mysterious Island of Colossus. His quest is to break the spell cast over his beloved princess by a diabolical magician. But before he can save her, Sinbad must battle an awesome collection of mythical monsters, the man-eating Cyclops, a saber-wielding skeleton, a ferocious two-headed bird called the Roc and a fire-breathing dragon. Starring Kerwin Mathews, Kathryn Grant, Torin Thatcher and highlighted by the stunning visual effects mastery of Ray Harryhausen. Now in a pristine, hi-definition transfer that captures the magic of Harryhausen's "eye-popping" special effects in dazzling Technicolor.

It Came from Beneath the Sea
A giant stop-motion-animated octopus (with six arms) attacks San Francisco. A pair of scientists and a nuclear sub captain try to stop it before it tears down the Golden Gate Bridge.

Earth vs. the Flying Saucers While driving through the desert with his wife Carol Marvin to a military base to send the eleventh rocket to the orbit of Earth for helping the exploration of the outer space in the Operation Sky Hook, Dr. Russell A. Marvin and Carol see a flying saucer and accidentally records a message in their tape recorder. Once in the base, Dr. Russell is informed by his father-in-law and general that the ten first satellites had mysteriously felt on Earth. When Dr. Russell decodes the message, he encounters the aliens that ask him to schedule a meeting with the leaders of Earth in Washington in 56 days with the intention to invade Earth without panicking the population. Dr. Russell develops an anti-magnetic weapon that becomes that last hope of human race against the hostile aliens.

If you're a Ray Harryhausen fan you couldn't be more happy to see his films on Blu-ray. This boxed set offers four early movies. Earth vs. The Flying Saucers, It Came From Beneath The Sea, and 20 Million Miles To Earth give you the option of watching the films in black and white or restored color. Although I liked watching the colorized versions I still preferred the original black and white. The 7th Voyage of Sinbad is in color only.

Picture quality was a major step up from the dvd versions but we're talking about 50 year old movies so don't expect pristine transfers. What really jumps out at you are the remixed high definition soundtracks. They sounded amazing. You really get a feel for the sound when watching the Sinbad movies' beginning credits.

Extras are very good with some new documentaries. All in all it's definitely worth it if you're a Harryhausen fan. Even if you're not there's something magical watching the stop motion animation from the master of the science. These movies should start a new generation of fans. I can't wait for the rest of Ray's movies to be released on Blu-ray. Enjoy!

Like all the reviewers here, I've been a fan of the fantasy film work of Ray Harryhausen since I was a kid. Fantastic journeys with Sinbad, Jason, and others are among my fondest childhood movie memories. But true science fiction was always my first love. So that's why I'm so excited that, among the many great films Harryhausen worked on, EARTH VS. THE FLYING SAUCERS has finally made its way to Blu-ray.

While it never makes the Top 10 list of 50's sci-fi flicks, I think it belongs there, alongside the original The War of the Worlds (Special Collector's Edition), Forbidden Planet [Blu-ray], and This Island Earth. There were other alien invasion films during the decade, but none deliver the goods like Earth vs. The Flying Saucers. And it's not just because of the master animator's incredible effects work. The story, though certainly dated, holds up well for what it is. A jaded viewer will spot the cliches: Studly scientist (Hugh Marlowe) in love with the General's daugher (Joan Taylor), a military that is actually competent and helpful, and so on. But to my mind, these are things to cherish about the film rather than being deficits.

To be fair to the whole box set, ALL the movies here are great in their own way. THE SEVENTH VOYAGE OF SINBAD is certainly the best of Harryhausen's trilogy of film featuring the adventure-loving sailor.

If you are a Classic Sci-Fi fan, this collection is a must! Having owned the DVD versions(which were also very good), these BR transfers are a tremendous upgrade in video and audio performance. The included colorized versions are also terrific! Along with nice packaging and a decent price, this a no brainer! Highly recommended!

No sense in reviewing the movies as I'm sure everyone knows about these films. I'm just floored by the fact that the bluray version came out so well.
And to switch over mid stream from color to b&w and back again. It's a great way to compare footage. And it even has subtitles. Lots off features. What more can a Harryhausen fan want?
Averages out to 8 bucks a film.

Four great RH films on Blu-ray and they all look the best they ever have on home video. Perhaps better than in theaters. And three have been colorized with RH's blessing and supervision. A plethora of special features. And crank up the sound levels for the opening of "7th Voyage of Sinbad" with its fabulous Bernard Herrmann's score! Wow!

A wonderful box set! Now if only Columbia/Sony would do a box set of "Three Worlds of Gulliver", "Mysterious Island", "Jason and the Argonauts" and "First Men in the Moon"!

Since I first saw these classics as a preteen, to now, they hold up very well. Ray Harryhausen is the master of stop motion and, shows it even on the rediculously low budgets he had to work with. They may not be up to the high priced movies of today but, I still enjoy watching over and over. The conversion to blu-ray went very well and, even the coloration was legit especially compared to the fiasco of a few years ago. The colors held well for what it is, the only thing is, a few colors were incorrect (i.e. the USAF hats and the USMC fatigue colors). So, watch either the colorized which Harryhausen liked or the original B & W and enjoy. To me, well worth the price.

Simply wonderful. And if you think you've been a lifelong fan of Ray Harryhausen and couldn't possibly learn anything new about the movies or see anything you haven't before in those familiar frames, think again: This is serendipity, folks. Of the kind we realized with such delight when Peter Jackson surprised us with that ambitious re-creation of what the KING KONG "Spider Pit" scene might have looked like, when lovingly executed and edited into its proper context. No, there's nothing quite so new, animation-wise, in this RH set. But I promise you'll see detail you've never seen before, especially in those stunning colorizations of the b&w Columbia titles (enthusiastically approved by Harryhausen). And there's fan-gold in them thar Extras and commentaries.

If you've been skeptical about upgrading your satisfying old DVDs of these Harryhausen titles, shackle that inner buzzkiller and try this set! How often do old fans truly get the opportunity to spike a time-worn interest nearly to the levels of first blissful discovery?
