Both day one purchases!(not to mention "Monster on the Campus",also scheduled for June) I own the German "Monolith Monsters" BD, and it looks awesome in Widescreen, but I'm, willing to double-dip for some comment from Tim Weaver or other extras. Make it worth it,SF!

CURSE OF THE UNDEAD, INCREDIBLE SHRINKING MAN, plus the ones you mentioned and then I can retire both my Universal SciFi Classics Sets. I truly hope they DO remember "Curse" and "The Thing that couldn't die"...those two look really terrible on their belated DVD incarnations (one an Italian DVD from a VHS master, "Thing" out on MOD-DVD from Amazon/Universal Vault that looks the same as the godawful blurry fullscreen TV prints we've seen for decades...and INTERLACED!). Come on, SF, please your hardcore fans & customers with these two!

I think THIS ISLAND EARTH is legitimately considered a "minor classic"..... but really all of these movies are "classics" to fans of the genre.

If This Island Earth is a 4K restoration with restored three-channel Perspecta stereo, I'm going to be extremely happy.

THIS ISLAND EARTH is pretty essential. i'd also recommend FORBIDDEN PLANET and THE THING FROM ANOTHER WORLD as good places to start with 50s sci-fi. much of it depends on how cheezy you want to go. i'd also look into the Ray Harryhausen 50s titles, BEAST FROM 20,000 FATHOMS, IT CAME FROM BENEATH THE SEA, EARTH VS THE FLYING SAUCERS and 20 MILLION MILES FROM EARTH as good examples of 50s sci-fi that hold up well todqay.

Thank you.... that was exactly what I was trying to say. “What are the essentials?”

I have the first two you listed and love them... thanks. I will check out the other ones.

no problem. i grew up with the 50s stuff and love it. i do understand that it may not appeal to younger viewers in many cases. some titles are really cheezy and may be seen as just plain dumb.

a couple more to consider

THE FLY total classic and again holds up well

IT THE TERROR FROM BEYOND SPACE Alien borrows more than a little from this one. cool monster. certain amount of cheez but fun movie.

I'd list THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL, INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS, WAR OF THE WORLDS and CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON among 1950's essentials.

The Day the Earth Stood Still should be an IMMEDIATE purchase for you. Then add to your growing list: Them!, The Beast From 20,000 Fathoms, The Fly, Creature From the Black Lagoon, and the original Godzilla (all available on Blu-ray).

I just love 50's sci-fi, and every title mentioned here are absolute must-have's if you like the genre. Can I also recommend a couple of British titles you may be interested in, namely The Quatermass Xperiment (1955) and Quatermass 2 (1957). Plus, I know it's slightly off the 50's time frame, but I heartily recommend The Day The Earth Caught Fire as well from 1961.

WAR OF THE WORLDS is great but isn't on blu-ray agree on other titles

Seriously though, I am excited for The Monolith Monsters.

If you have an appetite for this stuff, ingest all you can. Within the genre about 90% are essential. The other 10% are grade Z dreck. The recommendations posted transcend the genre and are good movies in their own right, exclusive of their genre. Like Halloween (1978) transcends it's B movie slasher genre and is a good movie period, not just a good horror/slasher movie.

From my point of view it's like asking which Twilight Zone episodes are worth watching.
10% are brilliant television
20% are great Twilight Zone
60% are good average Twilight Zone
10% flat out suck

Thanks all... making a list. I actually have a good deal of them already but have only watched about 3 or 4 of them so far.

Was IT THE TERROR FROM BEYOND SPACE a recommendation, or a sidenote?
