Movie Reviews

Ray Bradbury's stories deserved better dramatization....
Kenneth M. Pizzi | San Mateo, CA United States | 10/19/2006
(3 out of 5 stars)

"This combined set of all 26 episodes of The Ray Bradbury Theater offers a interesting dramatization of Bradbury's short stories, some obviously coming off better than the others. Bradbury himself, was featured in the opening credits in each episode.

Some of the better interpretations include Cyril Cusack in the celebrated "The Small Assassin," although the screenplay and direction could have been better handled, and one of my favorites, "The Veldt." But sadly, many of the more popular short stories are not included here.

With this series don't expect the quality or the emotional impact seen in Francois Truffat's film "Fahrenheit 451." Of course, the books and the stories are much better as you would expect, but for those who are unfamiliar with Bradbury, this televised series might just convince you to pick up some of his more celebrated novels like "The Martian Chronicles" (see my review of the 1979 TV mini-series), or "The Illustrated Man" soon to be released on DVD. "The Veldt" was better handled as a vignette in the feature film "The Illustrated Man" starring Rod Steiger.

I purchased my set at Ross for only $6.99, rather than the $12.99 list price indicated here. Be sure to shop around and see what deals are available."
