anyone else enjoy "It Came From Beneath the Sea" dvd, as much as I?

just wanted to give a quick plug for this dvd...in case anyone forgot about the release. I must say, although light on new extras, this pleased me almost as much as last years Them!! dvd. for the first time on home video, the film is presented in it's original theatrical aspect ratio with anamorphic enhancement. sadly, this is the final release for the Ray Harryhausen Signature Collection. did anyone else get this, and if so, were you pleased?

3 titles that are still missing from my collection: The Beast From 20,000 Fathoms, Valley of Gwangi and One Million Years B.C. , are all Harryhausen essentials. anyone have new info on these titles hitting dvd soon?

thanks...and pick this up!!

I looked and looked and couldn't find this at the local Best Buy. As for Border (my second option), they didn't have any new release out (at 3pm yesterday).

I'll have another look at Borders today. If it's not there, it's DDD.

I like the Harryhausen films without the matting; the TV version of this title shows a lot more of his animation. I think I'm just used to seeing these films on TV and when I see the DVDs that crop the top and bottom off it doesn't seem right. Still, he claims they shot these with allowances for cropping up to 1:85, so the DVD isn't incorrect, but to me, it isn't preferred.

I wish they'd just include both versions as they did on the 20 MILLION MILES TO EARTH disc.

I haven't picked it up yet, but I sure want to. Count me in as another big fan of Them! so I'm so looking forward to this, especially after reading the previous posts...
