This is a review for Journey to the Center of the Earth [DVD] [1959].

For pure adventure and for stimulating your sense of wonder and imagination this movie cannot be bettered. This marvellous motion picture got me through many a boring school holiday as a child and I still love it today (I'm now 50!). James Mason is as fantastic here as he is in the equally great "20,000 Leagues Under The Sea"! This is what I love about these vintage movies - the performances. Granted, they're not naturalistic like modern film performances, but that's exactly why I like them. The actors are actually having fun and it shows. They know that they are in a privileged profession and appreciate it. Unlike the spoilt and massively overpaid "stars" of today who mainly "go through the motions" with their performance. Perhaps, that is why their careers barely last more than a few years. No doubt people will bemoan the dated effects work. Well, so what! All the CGI effects and 3D couldn't save the Brendan Fraser remake from being dismally dull, could it?

Film ratio is 2.35:1. Audio is DD 4.0. Picture quality is very good. Sound is a little muted.

This is a great family movie to watch on a wet, Sunday afternoon.

A timeless classic family film with magical special effects appropriate to that period. James mason is his usual laid back self, but does provide a couple of numerous moments. Although dated, it has stood the test if time. A good family film.

Classic film quality is an improvement on dvd but can still see a lot of grain in some scenes.
