Excerpt: A problem that I have with most modern 3D movies is that halfway through the film everything starts to look flat. That is not the case here. Filmed in true 3D, titles like this offer much more to enjoy visually than todays digital 3D conversion process. The blu-ray is affordable and definitely worth checking out.
Excerpt: If you're into monster flicks, this is a must own. Good story, great creature effects, and awesome underwater cinematography. Picture: Very clean, no speckles, dirt, or print damage. Compared to the DVD from The Legacy Collection, 100% improvement. Presented in widescreen as opposed to The Legacy Collection which was full screen. 3D: Awesome! Nicely layered, great popouts, and good depth.
Excerpt: "Creature from the Black Lagoon" is an interesting movie about man's relationship with the planet. The underwater photography and special effects are nothing spectacular by today's standards, until you consider that special underwater cameras were invented just make the film. The film involves a archeological expedition that quickly changes when the scientific team discovers a living, breathing fish-man...
Conclusion: having received today sat down tonight, LG 60inch 3D TV, I must admit i was impressed with the 3D version, so clear and sound is very good,so much i had to adjust my surround sound system from its normal setting, the 3D is good, it is all the way through the film, not like some new films that only have parts,there is a really good scene where all the scientists are talking in the lab and right in the middle is this creature skeleton hand reaching out of the screen, i...
Conclusion: I BOUGHT THIS DISC IN APRIL, BUT HAVE ONLY BEEN ABLE TO PLAY IT AFTER BUYING A NEW 3D TV. THE DISC IS FAULTY HALF WAY THROUGH WITH THE SOUND /LIP SYNC BEING WAY OUT. I HAVE CHECKED REVIEWS ON ANOTHER SITE AND FOUND SIMILAR COMMENTS TO MINE. THE PROBLEM WOULD APPEAR TO APPLY TO THE DISC IN THE UNIVERSAL MONSTERS BOX SET AS WELL.
Conclusion: Amazing Classic Blu-ray top quality re-production of old classic Monster movie.I was however disappointed by the 3D as it did not work at all on my Samsung HT-C6930W/XAA 3D Blu-Ray Home Theater system screen just went blank.was gutted.Standard 2D version worked perfectly fine no issues
Conclusion: Over the years I've been lucky enough to have seen this classic Universal Monster Movie in 3D a number of times in a number of different formats.None of them however come close to this superb 3D Blu Ray version. Universal should be congratulated on a job well done as this film has probably never looked so good ! This is a movie that isn't shy about being in 3D and it shows with each frame beautifully composed for maximum effect with some nice 'out of screen' FX.
