One can only hope that Jason and the Argonauts and The 7th Voyage of Sinbad are not far behind. Posted Image

"And now the reprimand, from an American critic. He reproaches me for using film as a sacred & lasting medium, like a painting or a book. He does not believe that filmmaking is an inferior art, but he believes, and quite rightly, that a reel goes quickly, that the public are looking above all for relaxation, that film is fragile and that it is pretentious to express the power of one's soul by such ephemeral and delicate means, that Charlie Chaplin's or Buster Keaton's first films can only be seen on very rare and badly spoiled prints. I add that the cinema is making daily progress and that eventually films that we consider marvelous today will soon be forgotten because of new dimensions & colour. This is true. But for 4 weeks this film [The Blood of a Poet] has been shown to audiences that have been so attentive, so eager & so warm, that I wonder after all there is not an anonymous public who are looking for more than relaxation in the cinema." - Jean Cocteau, 1932

I am in. Just hope they are released individually, and not just in the 3 pack the story talks about. I already have 20 Million Miles to Earth on Blu. I held off on the new DVD release in hopes these would come, just like 20 Million did.

Ditto. Not cool for those of us who supported the previous 20 Million Miles release if we get screwed.

and hopefully 7th Voyage, Jason and the Argonauts and Mysterious Island isn't far behind!!!

I haven't received a press release yet, so I don't know if they are just releasing the set or if the individual titles will be available as well.

Great news about Sinbad!! Posted Image

For some reason I wouldn't mind getting the Ymir figurine. I don't know what I'd do with it though.

SEVENTH VOYAGE is, along with JASON AND THE ARGONAUTS, my favorite Harryhausen flick. Can't wait to see it on Blu-ray!
