I love Jules Verne's books and this is my favourite movie adaptation. Despite being outdated the classic set designs and special effects are far more interesting to me than the new CGI movies.

I asume this australian blu ray release is exactly the same "Twilight classics" released in the States. The specs are pretty much the same, but in this case at a much more reasonable price. In my opinion is a shame for major studios treating their classics like "collector items" just to as an excuse to raise the price.

The video quality is just a little bit better than the dvd version. Soft picture, bland colors, no sharpness and the audio is just ok, but according to proffesional reviewers that's due to the film elements. In my memory the movie looked a lot sharper when I saw it on cinemas. No extras AT ALL, appart from Bernard Herrman's wonderful score isolated and a trailer.

"Journey to the Center of the Earth" deserves a 'real collector's edition" with tons of extras and a 'real' digitally remastered print. Otherwise, you're more than ok if you already have the dvd. Even better because at least the dvd has subtitles. This BD release do not. The 3 starts are for the movie, and there would be 5 if the release were better

I know that this is an old film but I still enjoyed it, although these days people will call it corny , it is still an enjoyable and light hearted film to pass a couple of hours. Why not take a trip to the center of the earth and find out for your self if you enjoy it.

This is the best adaptation of my favorite Jules Verne book. I saw it no less than four times and every time I liked it even more. Below, more of my impressions, with some limited SPOILERS.

Jules Verne's books were a major feature of my childhood and teenage readings and I will always keep in memory the wonderful moments I spend in their company. Sailing the seven seas "In search of castaways", navigating "Twenty thousand leagues under the sea", building civilization from scratch on "Mysterious island", exploring Africa during the "Five weeks in a balloon", shooting in space and going "From the Earth to the Moon" and "Around the Moon", accepting the challenge to travel "Around the world in 80 days", trying desperately to survive with "Dick Sand, a captain at fifteen", spending "The begum's millions" and finally participating in "The chase of the golden meteor" - oh, the adventures I lived thanks to this great French writer... But the one that I always cherished the most, to the point of reading the book at least ten times, was "The journey to the center of the Earth"...

If you didn't read this book yet, I sincerely recommend to do it, if possible before watching this film - but on another hand, as the film changed the story a lot, it is also possible to see the movie before reading the novel.

In the film the story begins in Edinburgh, Scotland, in 1880. During the examination of an unusual sample of volcanic rock, professor Sir Oliver Lindenbrook (James Mason), a very famous and quite eccentric geologist at the University of Edinburgh and his young student and more or less research assistant Alec McEwan (Pat Boone), find inside a plumb bob bearing a cryptic inscription.

An adventure movie based on Jules Verne's classic story about a band of explorers incident-filled journey to the centre of the earth.
This film has everything you could ask for in a good movie - murder, intrigue, romance, volcanos, a cute little duck (?), Pat Boone singing (well nearly everything), James Mason doing what he did best (i.e. being James Mason) and much more.
Great special effects (for 1959) help make this a great film!

JOURNEY TO THE CENTRE OF THE EARTH [1959] [HOLLYWOOD GOLD SERIES] [Blu-ray] Fabulous World Below The World!

The accent is on fun and fantasy in this film version of Jules Verne's classic thriller that stars James Mason, Pat Boone, and Arlene Dahl. With spectacular visuals as a backdrop, the story centres on an expedition led by Professor Sir Oliver S. Lindenbrook [James Mason] down into the earth's dark, threat-laden core. Members of the group include the professor's star student, Alec McEwan [Pat Boone], and the widow Mrs. Carla Göteborg [Arlene Dahl] of a colleague. Along the way lurk dangers such as kidnapping, death, sabotage by a rival explorer, and attacks by giant prehistoric reptiles. But they also encounter such magnificent wonders as a glistening cavern of quartz crystals, luminescent algae, a forest of giant mushrooms, and the lost city of Atlantis.
