3.0 out of 5 stars Nice to have on BluRay but lacking extras, 9 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Quatermass Xperiment (Blu-ray + DVD) [1955] (Blu-ray)
It may seem strange to say this blu ray lacks extras when it features two entire films (the excellent Quatermass 2 and X: The Unknown) as extras but there are already superb DVDs of all three titles with features, commentaries and so on issued by DD.

That aside, this has a fine picture and good loud sound. There's a phasing issue with the soundtrack on X: The Unknown that's not present on the DD DVD so that's another star off. But this is still easy way to get three top-notch films on a single disc and for that reason I can only really mark it down one star. If the commentaries and so on had been on this disc too then it would have been a five-star from me. If you don't care about extras then buy this.

A couple of extra notes -- no subtitles and, although it's Australian, it plays fine on UK players as does the DVD version that comes with it.

It would play fine on UK players, we are the same region for blu-ray

Thanks for the comment -- I can confirm it does play fine, albeit with the odd sound issue I mentioned on X: The Unknown. That mars the disc for me as I particularly like that film.

it's very strange that they didn't sort out the sound problems... The DVD of X The Unknown as perfectly acceptable sound.
