    Fantastic Voyage was always hugely popular on television when I was a kid. Preordered.

    I duplicate my comments from the VTTBOTS thread: no mention of a lossless isolated score. However, I'm thrilled that a lossless 5.1 and a lossless mono track are being included. I guess lossless original audio is becoming a standard on Fox classic releases! :D

    This movie is great entertainment. Yes, some of the effects now look pretty bad, but others are awesome. I've always loved the attack of the antibodies. This is one of the few classics I think actually cries out to be re-made, using today's technology, as long as they don't go all Michael Bay on staccato editing and vacuous script and characters.

    Watched this film last evening.

    A favorite of mine since I was a child. Hasn't lost a bit of entertainment
    value in all the years since. I sat and watched intently throughout as if
    I were seeing it for the first time.

    And you know what? It has been quite a bit of time since I had seen
    Fantastic Voyage. I don't quite remember the prologue text at the beginning
    of the film. Probably had been cut from television viewings during my childhood
    years.

    Think Fox did an excellent job with the transfer. It looks quite good.

    Really, this is one of the greatest sci-fi films ever made. So happy to finally
    own it on Blu-ray. Thank you, Fox!

    I count this movie as a guilty pleasure. I like it, while not thinking it's very good. I will be buying when it hits a better price-point.

    I watched this one for the first time about 6 months ago and thought it was quite good. Sure, there are a few campy elements but as a whole I though it was a pretty engaging and imaginative effort with some pretty well executed experimental special effects.
