Movie Reviews

Video Quality Apparently Compressed from Original
The Weary Professor | NJ, USA | 08/24/2007
(3 out of 5 stars)

"I own the War of the Worlds stand alone release, but wanted When Worlds Collide, so I picked up this double feature disk. Not only are the extras from the War of the Worlds release missing, but the film seems to have been remastered at a lower bitrate to fit it on a single dual-layer DVD along with When Worlds Collide. I actually noticed a difference on my TV, so I popped the disks in the computer and confirmed it. These are just the films with no extras at all. My advice: Order the single disk releases for better quality and extras at a relatively small price difference."
Early 1950's Movies

"Of course, I had seen them before, but truly loved seeing them again. They are excellent! Lena"
50's SCIFI movie combo
Ted Heilmann | Metro Milwaukee, WI USA | 06/03/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)

"If you enjoy fun, entertaining and visually satisfying science fiction, then this combo is no disappointment. Cream of the crop 1950's movies here. There's a lot of effort in the visuals in these films. And these films don't need gore to hold your attention. Most everyone over 40 years old knows these films and appreciate the quality of workmanship for the time they were produced. Every member of the family can enjoy these classics. The price for this combo is reasonable in my opinion. I can finally retired my VHS versions."

"Two of the greatest classic Sci-Fi movies ever done - on one DVD. Best special effects for their time. Great story line. I loved them"
