CLIPS DVD REVIEW
ROG'S VIEWPOINT 2 CAMS (the movie)
2 CAMS (the movie)
The gimmickry is the reason to own this absolutely out-of-this-world 3-D Blu-ray release (Nov. 18, 2014) from Kino Lorber, as part of their Kino Classics series. Certainly a must own for 3-D enthusiasts, this widescreen film was amazingly restored by the 3-D Film Archive and its founder Bob Furmanek. The eye-popping effects are preserved in this grand restoration. Originally 112 minutes, the movie was cut to approx. 91 minutes in 1976 and released as "Fantastic Invasion of Planet Earth". The cuts were made to the original negative and the deleted material was destroyed. This Blu-ray edition is the most complete version of the movie available. Among the bonus features are screenplay excerpts of deleted scenes and an essay by preservationist Bob Furmanek. Trailers and a stills gallery are also included. The alternate title opening and a restoration demonstration are presented in both 3-D and 2-D. For those who don't have 3-D systems, the 2-D version will work on all Blu-ray players. I'm hoping that Kino Lorber and the 3-D Film Archive make a fortune on this spectacular presentation - encouraging future restored releases of those past 3-D classics, especially from the 1950s. While "The Bubble" may fall short of being a cinematic masterpiece, this Blu-ray release is simply fantastic.
