HD Alert!

There are no new Blu-ray releases in the forceable future so let's talk about some old releases...


Ray Harryhausen's SINBAD movies, THE 7TH VOYAGE OF SINBAD (1958), THE GOLDEN VOYAGE OF SINBAD (1973) and SINBAD AND THE EYE OF THE TIGER (1977), are available on Blu-ray, individually or in the RAY HARRYHAUSEN THE ULTIMATE COLLECTION pack, which has the 3 Sinbad movies, plus 4 other movies, including JASON AND THE ARGONAUTS (1963). I don't mind the other movies but what if I just want to buy the 3 Sinbad movies? Buying the 3 movies individually would cost more than the ULTIMATE COLLECTION, which is around $60

A SINBAD boxset was released in the UK but look at the price. 


Why don't they release a boxset in the US/Canada with just the 3 Sinbad movies at a reasonable price.

I forgot about the MARCO POLO BD. I'll mention it next time.

About that SINBAD Trilogy boxset

Are the movies in 24fps or 25fps/29fps/ or different frame rate? I prefer 24fps.
