Buy the original version until the Blu-ray is priced for the US market
Though there have been a couple of attempts to improve upon the 1959 original, all attempts have failed quite badly. The initial crew with James Mason, Pat Boone, Arlene Dahl, Diane Baker, Peter Ronson, and Gertrude (along with Bernard Hermann's acclaimed soundtrack) just puts ever other effort out of the boat. The novel by Jules Verne lends itself easily to an epic, effects-heavy adventure story with the original characters. To date, the follow-on efforts have been comical, which is sad. Another complaint: If you want to buy the original JTTCOTE, (on BluRay) get read to shell out approximately $90 US dollars.

Journey to the Center of the Earth
A science professor's untraditional hypotheses have made him the laughing stock of the academic community. But on an expedition in Iceland, he and his nephew stumble upon a major discovery that launches them on a thrilling journey deep beneath the Earth's surface, where they travel through never-before-seen worlds and encounter a variety of unusual creatures. This movie is the most entertaining 3-D movie I've ever seen.

Journey to the Center of the Earth
At the time it was made and for the age group who was targeted (teens and pre-teens) it was a fantastic movie with wonderful images and great performers (Arlene Dahl - at one time The World's Most Beautiful Woman - and James Mason, who can make being stuffy almost endearing).
These were the days of gluing dorsal fins on lizards and calling it special effects, but hey - it worked just great. This movie made a ride up a volcanic chimney on a column of fast-moving molten lava seem almost like something to add to your life list, and made a wall of precious stones my personal MUST HAVE. I ended up with many lizards in my yard and gemstones in the bank, and now I have the movie, too! All I need now is hair!

1959 Version Is A Treasure
We bought the new release of Journey to the Center of the Earth. It was very well done and most entertaining. Then I remembered the 1959 version that I saw when I was a teen. I went on eBay and found that the "old' version was available. We bought it and probably enjoyed it equally well as the "new" version. One thing that I prefer about the 1959 release is that it follows the Jules Verne story far more accuratly. Also, it is better for young children because it is not so "scarry" as some of my younger grandchildren put it. However, my teenage grandkids prefer the new release. All in all, I am glad that the '59 version is still available. There are a number of "older" films that I would buy if ever they were to be released on DVD. All of the Cinerama films need to be remastered and released.Read full review

Along the way they run into Giant prehistorick reptiles, Magnificent glowing crystal caverns, a fierce magnetic lightening storm and even the lost city of Atlantis!
