Mars Attacks!

 (1996)

Mars Attacks! Blu-ray offers decent video and audio, but overall it's a mediocre Blu-ray release

Amid speculation that a meteorite crashed to Earth from Mars some 15,000 years ago and contains indications of simple life forms, 'Mars Attacks!' offers definitive proof of life on the Angry Red Planet. No single-celled organisms, these alien invaders are the big-brained variety with a flair for ray guns and planetwide pandemonium. Citizens of Earth face their doom with gung-ho valor and brainless abandon as little green men from outer space gleefully terrorize the planet in an all-star, cross-country sci-fi comedy.

For more about Mars Attacks! and the Mars Attacks! Blu-ray release, see Mars Attacks! Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 2.5 out of 5.

Starring: Jack Nicholson, Glenn Close, Annette Bening, Pierce Brosnan, Danny DeVito, Martin Short
Director: Tim Burton

Mars Attacks! Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

Mars Attacks! looks fantastic in high definition... here and there. Unfortunately, Warner's 1080p/VC-1 transfer is the product of a dated, problematic master; one groomed for DVD scrutiny and little more. Don't get me wrong, the Blu-ray edition handily outclasses its 1997 standard definition counterpart -- it boasts several substantial (albeit largely inherent) improvements -- but a more complete overhaul would have eliminated many of the issues that sully the presentation and allowed Burton's vision to truly shine. Peter Suschitzky's vivid colors and gushing primaries have been rejuvenated, but slight contrast inconsistencies, frequently flushed fleshtones and unreliable, at-times overbearing black levels prove to be regular distractions. Detail is also hit-or-miss. Fine textures are pudgy and waxy one minute (no doubt the result of intermittent noise reduction), satisfying and suitably resolved the next. Object definition impresses on occasion, particularly for a fourteen-year-old catalog comedy, but flounders whenever overzealous edge enhancement and subsequent ringing becomes obvious. Daytime exteriors and well-lit interiors make promises the film's shadowy ships and nighttime sequences fail to uphold. More distressingly, the image, though fairly clean on the whole, is sometimes disrupted by soupy grain, murky clarity, unsightly crush, errant artifacts, faint banding and some minor aliasing. No single issue ruins the presentation, but together, they take a toll. Does Mars Attacks! look better on Blu? Absolutely. Could it look much better? Without a doubt.


Mars Attacks! Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

All that mayhem! All that destruction! You'd think Warner's DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track would be a show-stopper. Alas, Mars Attacks! features a rather average lossless mix that delivers an adequate upgrade and nothing more. Dialogue is crisp, clean and nicely prioritized, dynamics are passable, separation is commendable and directionality, though far from convincing, is decent. However, low-end tones are loud but cumbersome, growling when a roar is required and grumbling when thunder is called for. Explosions pack heat but little punch, tank cannons fire with the same intensity as pistols, and the martians' ships and Danny Elfman's score are the only elements that take advantage of the LFE channel. The rear speakers flounder as well, and the majority of the film is reduced to an unengaging, front-heavy affair. Ambience, music and acoustic flourishes worm their way across the soundfield, but few make an impact and even fewer assist the track's already middling soundfield. It isn't bad per se, just imprecise and unremarkable.
