Watched this earlier, it's not a bad effort at all. The sharpening is obvious but once the quake hits, the generational loss in the various opticals tend to lessen the effect, as does the shift to nighttime so there's less in the way of hard contrasts for the edge halos to congregate around. The colour is a bit pallid but seeing as this is an old transfer of an old element, probably an IP, it holds up very well indeed with crisp detail and solid blacks.

I liked the sound too, there's a fair bit of oomph in the 5.1 mix and the separation of John Williams' score is lovely. It's got loud bass rather than deep bass, but it's still appreciated on a movie called Earthquake, and I thought it was much more effective than the bass in Battlestar Galactica which was used very sparingly.

Okay Universal, that's two decent catalogue releases, what's going on? When you're hot you're hot!

Found this in the Wal-Mart dump earlier today but with revised cover art. It now features the original poster art of the title collapsing! Much better!

Oh, really?
I would be interested in that but I don't think this has been released with the original poster.
Maybe it was a custom made cover?

Did you get it and if yes, could you provide a photo please?

edit: Hmmm.. maybe you're right:

i wonder how someone could get the BLuray with this cover from amazon.
I had a hard time with another BLuray to get the correct cover, and still I didn't get it, after they sent it to me a 2nd time!

So NOW they put the best art on the cover. That's okay I had made my own similar to this but added the sensurround box that was on the poster. I would add my design here but it won't copy and paste and it does not look like you can upload to a post from your hard drive.

OF course it would have been even better if they had kept it intact.
Eg. the left edge (left to the "E") is missing:

Someone ordered this not too long ago from Amazon and they received the old artwork, not the revised poster art cover. I guess its luck of the draw on which one you receive.

This version of Earthquake, is not worth buying, without a Sensurround audio track.
Universal Studios botched the release of this flick on Blu-ray bigtime.
Your missing 50% of the movie without Sensurround.
It's like watching Jurassic Park, but without the dinosaurs.

Actually, the blu ray DOES include a DTS 2.1 Sensurround audio track.

Sensurround for Earthquake was a tone that activated special Cerwin-Vega subwoofers installed. It wasn't some super-duper LFE channel that could be transferred to home media.

This is what I feared.
I guess ebay would be a better option with the seller having a photo of the actual product, but I don't see any Bluray with the new cover.

I too remember seeing this in Sensurround in the 70s. It was a fun gimmick, but hardly essential to enjoy the tacky charms of the film and Sensurround can't be replicated at home anyway.

I've always enjoyed 70s disaster films, but on rewatching the Blu-ray of Earthquake, I found that it hasn't stood the test of time as well as some of the others. I still like The Poseidon Adventure, The Towering Inferno and a couple of the Airport films, but this one I sold on.

Thanks! That's what they should've used for a cover from the get go. I'll have to check out my local Walmart. I was there over the weekend, didn't see any copies of Earthquake. I did pickup a copy of Hercules 3D, the Kellan Lutz one.

Now, Fox has to replace that horrible cover, they used for Poseidon Adventure. And use the original below.

I made a custom cover for The Poseidon Adventure with the original poster art. I made a few variations. Shoot me a PM if you're interested. Also did 2 customs for The Towering Inferno.

I may actually venture out to Walmart to see if I can find this even though I already own the original release. Weird that Universal would re-release it with original (or close to original) art.
