Great isolated music track, with a surprise

Excerpt: I expected to use the "Atlantis" music cue to test my subwoofer, but it started roaring with the overture and main titles. You wouldn't think that a 1950s movie would exercise a brutish sub, but Bernard Herrmann's use of 5 organs (4 electric and 1 pipe organ) guarantee a low end that will impress.
Excerpt: Just finished my side by side comparison of the Limited Edition 3000 to the remastered Limited Edition 5000 release. The remaster has more detail than the first release. You can see the difference in clothing and such in the foreground. Also, the picture is slightly darker than the first release.
Summary: I can't speak to the 3-D version of this movie but this ordinary flat version appeals to my inner eight-year-old. They could have done more with creature effects but apparently the money went to 3-D. Solid family entertainment with a commentary Fraser fans will enjoy.
Excerpt: I saw "Journey to the Center of the Earth" in its initial theatrical release at my local movie theater in CinemaScope, stereophonic sound, and Color by Deluxe. You could hear female audience go crazy when Pat Boone first appeared -- somewhat akin to the Beatles making their film debut years later.
Summary: A stupid scientist and his stupid nephew travel to Iceland to investigate some seismic activity. They find themselves on a journey to another land that exists only in the center of the earth. This movie has alright visual effect's but the acting is bad and the 3-D is not so good.
Excerpt: Video only small improvement in detail over dvd, limited by an older existing element which needs to be updated. Audio very good with strong LFE. Colors pleasing and strong. Lots of marks and imperfections on print.
Summary: "Journey to the Center of the Earth" was so boring at times that I wanted to just stop watching it. Well, I still lived through it. I'm just gonna say that this movie is mostly dull and has some fun and cheesy scenes here and there. Seriously, the script was so damn terrible.
