Creature From the Black Lagoon Complete Legacy Collection 09/01/18

Universal Pictures Home Entertainment
Blu-ray + 3D

It’s controversy in the Black Lagoon! Universal releases a much-desired box of all three Gill Man epics — but goes cheap on the encoding and hands us a 3-D rendering of Revenge of the Creature at half- bit rate and half- resolution. When is a Blu-ray not a Blu-ray? When it’s not even full HD. And all that after commissioning a state-of-the-art 4k 3-D video remaster! We still love the movies — Creature from the Black Lagoon, Revenge of… and … Walks Among Us— and my review takes the time to justify our devotion to them. Now all we need is a satisfactory disc presentation. On Blu-ray from Universal Home Entertainment.
