I bet it'll look 100X better than the anaglyph version I saw on WLBZ Bangor as a kid. I had to use the red/blue glasses that came with our World Book Encyclopedia.

Are all of the Creature movies in 3d, or just Revenge?

Thanks,
Matthew

The original and REVENGE are 3D. CREATURE WALKS AMONG US was flat.

Here’s hoping that those of us who already have the creature films multiple times will be able to buy Revenge as a separate 3D disc.

Based on previous releases in this series, the price will drop close to a single disc movie after Christmas. If you can be patient you'll get the whole set for the price of an individual release.

That is very disappointing indeed, and let's hope it was just a mistake and hopefully fixable, and not something done on purpose (meaning they won't fix even if they have the ability to).

Btw, Bob, will the NYC Film Forum theatrical showing of the films tomorrow (for which you will be a guest speaker) have the correct prints of the films? They will be showing DCPs (digital prints). Let's hope they won't show what was used for the Blu-ray.

No, the DCP should be a straight rip of the 4K restoration master.

Of course, I have not seen the DCP but that's what we should be seeing tomorrow!

Thanks! To all members in NYC, please go see the film in Film Forum tomorrow (one day only!) and support Bob's work. Probably the only way to see his work for the time being.

It's tough to see Universal eff'ed it up like that. Tomorrow would be a great time for Bob to mention the new Blu-ray but sadly now he can't. Or maybe he can warn people not to buy it.

I just came back from Film Forum's showing of the film, and it was, of course, the correct print showing a 3D restoration as good as the one for "Creature of the Black Lagoon." The theater was packed, and I saw a long line stretched out to the street, which should warm your heart, Bob. Many of these people probably got wind of the fouled up Blu-ray. I certainly made it a top priority to see it today because of that.

Sorry I missed you and thank you so much for coming to the show.

The sold-out crowd loved it and I received many complements after the screening on the restoration. Let's hope for some good news very soon from NBCUniversal on this issue with the 3-D Blu-ray.
