Any Ray Harryhausen fans here?

This was the second blu-ray release from Twilight Time.
Another limited edition (3,000 copies).

The absolute best I've ever seen this movie look,really beautiful transfer.
A couple of audio options as well as an isolated score...all sound superb.

I love classic sci-fi movies...have a real passion for 50's 60's movies within the genre.
This release is from 1961,based on the Jules Verne story.

Probably one of my fav Harryhausen flicks,up there with Jason and the Argonauts (but that's another post :wub: )

It's got a giant chicken (nasty little fucker) and a giant crab...and the absolute classic animation of Harryhausen.
It's also got Captain Nemo (Herbert Lom)...what's not to love?

And this one came with a magnet of the cover art too. :tongue2:

This release holds a special place in my collection.

9/10

And that reminds me, my Lost Collection is a prize of mine as well :D


I got this through Amazon on a one-day-only deal for $99


You must have gotten yours a couple weeks after Christmas? My mom got me mine for Christmas when they had it for $130, and I remember it going to $100 not too long after.

Sounds about right...I almost jumped at the $130 sale,glad I waited.

Also got that Scream set you mentioned (is it the one with the mask?).
I got that blu-ray set (with the mask) on an Amazon.ca one-day-only deal for $ 23.99.
I couldn't believe it!

The 5 disc set all in one? I didn't want that, because it bugs me having a set, then knowing they're going to release more. I bought the individual-case versions last night. :) You got a good deal regardless, though!

I wish my Wal-Mart had leftovers of their exclusive Resident Evil steelbooks. Apparently they're priced at $7.88, but none of the walmarts around me have them :(

Nice. Saw those were coming out, but didn't know they were wal-mart exclusives.

I might wait until they're in the 7.88 bin, though :tongue2:

A Knight's Tale was also in that bin, which was tempting...

Oh definitely!
I'll spring at 9.99 though.
You can preorder them via Walmart site for 9.99 each.

9.99 isn't a bad price for those at all, but it's one of those "I could get them, but don't need them right now" (which most blus are like that, right? :lol:) feeling.

Blu-ray.com is my second favorite site :)

But yeah, I want that Limitless steel. Turns out it would cost me around $30 to get though, which is a little too expensive :tongue2:

Why 30?...delivery?

Can't you just order 2 things (find something else you want) and get free delivery?

Does amazon.ca do free delivery deals with people ordering in the US? I don't buy from Amazon, so I don't know how it works :tongue2:

And I guess I potentially could, if I could find something else I wanted :tongue2:

EDIT: Yep, just checked and only to Canadian addresses. Dammit! I was about to order Limitless and The Departed steelbooks, too :lol:

The US doesn't get shit like this :(

Sorry man,didn't realize that link went to Amazon.ca fot the Limitless steelbook.
I thought you were showing me one from Amazon.com..that's why I mentioned the free shipping thing because you get free shipping on orders of $25.00 or more there as well (US resdients).

I have to pay for orders from the US site...and an "esitimated duty fee" or something.
