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.
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.
Excerpt: I really looked forward to seeing this film (one of my all-time favorites) released on blu-ray, but was disappointed when I got my copy. Although an improvement upon the DVD release, the picture is really very soft.
Excerpt: I was a little concerned the picture quality may not up to scratch, but was more than satisfied in the end. There 'were' the occasional white flecks - particularly at the start... but nothing to worry about. Detail was better than images used in film review.
Excerpt: Journey was a fum popcorn flick in the theater and courtesy of a 3D, for 3D television upgrade, is just as good in your home. The film is loosely based on the Jules Verne novel with Fraser and all doing a great job with their characters. Funny linea abound in the film too. 3D video is awesome.
Excerpt: Just watched Journey to the Center of the Earth for the first time on BD3D and loved it. I think this will be my new demo 3D movie next to Hugo. While Hugo is the flag-bearer for sophisticated and artistic 3D, Journey is more simplistic and more fun.
