One Million Years, BC Blu Ray review

 I got this in the mail a few days ago, and it's a great set, though I am a bit confused as to why the US cut is even included, but I guess it's nice to have it preserved.  It is a "3K" presentation, whatever that means.  I may watch it once, but since the commentary is on the 100 minute cut that's probably the one I'll usually watch.  I'm happy to have both, though, since they put the extras on the second disc.  I don't know yet if they are just the ported over interviews of Ray and Raquel from the UK DVD, but there's also an interview from Martine Beswick now as well.

The movie looks great though and I'm happy to have the non PAL version properly presented.  It's been so long since I've watched the movie in normal speed.

Tim Lucas of Video Watchdog has done a great job on the commentary, and talks about all aspects of the movie, actors, music, location and not just how masterful the effects are.

It's one of the best presentations of a Hammer/Harryhausen movie I've ever seen.  Now let's get Valley of Gwangi done like this!
