    I imagine those Sinbads will sell out in a matter of minutes, so good news for those people who picked up Seventh Voyage of Sinbad, want to finish their Harryhausen collection and will have no idea that they missed their chance...

    Frankly, neither of these movies is any great shakes compared to "Seventh Voyage of Sinbad". The well was essentially dry when "Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger" was produced.


    That said, there's no denying the lure of having a collection of Sinbad films to pass a few pleasant hours from time to time.

    Mysterious Island, which I'd say is many times more popular than the Sinbad sequels, took nearly a year to sell out. Twilight Time is obviously more well known now, but I think them going in minutes (or even days or weeks) is a bit of an exaggeration.

    My favorite is GOLDEN VOYAGE. I think the script is simply better than SEVENTH, and the monsters are, too (outside of SEVENTH's cyclops, of course!) That said, I absolutely love SEVENTH so that shows you how much I love GOLDEN. Agreed on EYE OF THE TIGER, though - a huge step-down in every department, although I still like it enough, I suppose, and am thrilled it's coming out.

    Seventh was 50's gold, but Golden had a bit of polish--More genuine Arabian flavor (than Seventh's squeaky-clean Hollywood Arabia), writer Brian Clemens from "The Avengers" turning Sinbad into a dashing scimitar-wielding John Steed, Tom Baker being discovered for Doctor Who after his villain performance, and, yes, some of the cooler monsters this side of Seventh's cyclops. :)

    Eye of the Tiger was....a 70's kiddie matinee, though, from the days of "At the Earth's Core". I don't remember Patrick Wayne as Sinbad being quite so annoying as the witch's actress being nine levels of overacting. That, and it just looked cheap, the way third-movies do.
    Even putting another Doctor Who in as the old alchemist couldn't save it.

    Eye of the Tiger did feature a scantily-clad Jane Seymour, though, so it's not entirely without it's compensations.

    I may have to spring for Royal Flash. I was a big fan of the novels, and thought they did a good job with the movie version (even though it was one of my least favorite novels of the Flashman series). Not sure I need to upgrade the DVD though.

    You can always count on TT for the very best! I hope with the support of cult titles and true film collectors the company has a long and happy road ahead.

    Nope, I grew up in the 1970s and never heard of Mysterious Island until recently. I think I saw all three Sinbad films at the drive inn with my father. 7th Voyage was rereleased like Jason, but I do not recall a seeing a rerelease for Mysterious Island. I think that there will be a lot of children of the 1970s who will eat up these releases.

    I guess we can assume that the Royal Flash DVD commentary will be ported over to the blu-ray.

    No lump of coal in my stocking this Christmas...the remaining 2 Harryhausen Sinbad flicks, plus an inspired oddity like Royal Flash, directed by Richard Lester and lensed by the late great Geoffrey Unsworth, with Ken Thorne adapted music.

    "Fa. La. La. La. Lah!" :D

    I personally think "7th Voyage" was the best of the lot... "Mysterious Island", which I've only just gotten around to, is pretty wonderful as well.

    TT is the only company that gives us the best that they can supply. I do not agree with the comments on the Bits!!! I only wish that WHV would give us a fantastic restoration of Rain Tree County.
