An elite team of medical and scientific specialists race to save a top government scientist who is suffering from a blood clot on the brain. Their mission: be reduced along with their submarine-like craft to microscopic size, enter the bloodstream of the ailing scientist, and journey to the brain to perform an emergency procedure. With only sixty minutes to complete their mission, the scientist find themselves fighting off an attack by white corpuscles, caught in a tornado-like storm in the lungs, and struggling to survive sabotage from one of their own.

The Neptune Factor - Aboard the R/V Triton, the Project Neptune team is doing oceanographic research. Director Andrews is trying to keep the research going in spite of opposition from Foundation Head Sheppard. Below on the ocean floor, in the Sealab, the team led by Hamilton is about to return to the surface when the Sealab is ripped loose from it's moorings and sent careening into a trench. Trapped too deep for divers, the only chance is rescue by a new US Navy mini-sub, piloted by the arrogant Cdr Blake USN.

This is great news! I was going to buy the Fantastic Voyage/ Voyage to Bottom of the Sea double feature DVD from Amazon.com but it went out of print. I'm glad I never bought it now. The special features on these seem really cool. I don't think I've ever seen The Neptune Factor, I'll gladly pick that one up too.

Ummm... Is the Edition title seriously "Global Warming Edition" for Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea? Wow... And people thought "Behind The Seams" was bad...

I like these releases, cheap for great movies. Will get Fantastic Voyage for sure, not so sure about the others, are they worth it?

At least the title fits in with the plot Wink. I don't care what they are called, as long as the movie and the extras are good. I think Voyage would be worth buying because Irwin Allen makes really good and exciting movies. This one has a great cast, even though I know and love the actors from the TV series in these roles better.

But how long will it be before they bundle it up with "An Inconvenient Truth"?
