"What surprised me the most about these films was the quality of both the picture and the sound. I assume the prints were taken directly from the masters or were digitally remastered. I thoroughly enjoyed watching films that I had seen as a kid at the movies(THE MOLE PEOPLE, THE MONOLITH MONSTERS)and those that I hadn't seen before.
It's nice to see science fiction films in which the special effects weren't created through computer graphics!!
The trailers were a pleasant added surprise.
This set would impress any collection of classic science fiction films."
