        Comments about Forbidden Planet (BD):

        This is an excellent transfer of Forbidden Planet: detail is crisp and clear, far better than in previous transfers to DVD or to LD. Backgrounds are now clear, the detailing of Robby is easily seen, and general detail is now so crisp that "secrets" of many of the special effects are now easily seen as well. With all the extra that are included, this is now my definive version of the film.

            I saw this movie fifty six (56) years ago when I was ten years old. I saw it with my Dad at a drive-in theatre and loved it. I had to see it again and was impressed with the clarity of the blu-ray copy.

            Comments about Forbidden Planet (BD):

            What with Lucasfilms and the Disney Corporation set to ready production of chapter 7 of the "Star Wars" saga for 2015, it's fun to wax nostalgic with one of that saga's primary inspirations, "Forbidden Planet". MGM certainly took its sweet time submitting its entry in the sci-fi boom of the Fifties, but man, is this film real cool! It's Shakespear's the "Tempest" set to hyper-space and blaster guns as any sci-fi aficionado will tell you, it's among the most memorable films ever made.

              Only problem was your (Warner Bros.)delivery...told a few days, took weeks. When I wrote...four times to tell you...each time it came back saying your system wouldn't allow my notes to be read. Terrible service on this one and no one...NO ONE...has apologized.

                This is a high quality reproduction of the original movie from back in the fifties. The colors are vibrant but the sound effects they use in the movie in lieu of music is a little annoying to me. Overall, still a supper SiFi movie.

                    I fear many of the post-Star Wars population has never seen this movie, which can at the very least equal SW on any scale. (And By Star Wars, I mean the good one.) If you haven't seen this, do yourself a favor! I not only would recommend this to a friend, I have many times.
