Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Movie

 (1996)

Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Movie Blu-ray offers solid video and great audio in this fan-pleasing Blu-ray release

The mad and evil scientist, Dr. Clayton Forrester, has created an evil little scheme that is bound to give him world global domination but first thing's first. He plans to torment Mike Nelson and the robots by sending them a real stinker of a film to watch called, "This Island Earth." He is convinced that this movie will drive them insane. And since the guys cannot control when the movie begins or ends, they are forced to witness the true horror that is this awful movie that has a lobster creature dressed in slacks. But will this be the ultimate cheese that breaks the boys' spirits? It's up to one test subject's quick wit, sharp sense of humor, and utter intolerance for cinematic garbage to foil the plans of the scientist and to save the Earth.

Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Movie Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Mystery Science Theater 3000 The Movie is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Shout! Factory with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.84:1. There are of course "two" movies here, the framing elements with Mike and the boys, and the This Island Earth sequences which actually make up the bulk of the film. This Island Earth is obviously sourced from an older print with faded, brownish color and quite a bit of dirt and scratches, but after all, that's part of the point of MST3K. The interstitials are actually quite spry looking by comparison, with nicely garish colors (the greens are especially lurid) and a nicely sharp and well defined image. As crazy as this sounds, I have a sneaking suspicion that some moderate DNR may have been applied here (and after all, this is in a way a Universal catalog release), for grain is rather minimal in the framing sequences. This isn't the deal killer it might have been with more serious fare, however, and the image remains very watchable if slightly skewed towards a video appearance. (I have to say the thought of a Universal technician utilizing DNR on this film to "improve" it actually strikes me as at least as funny as anything in the film itself.)


Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Movie Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Mystery Science Theater 3000 The Movie lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 is rather unexpectedly impressive in fits and starts. The opening riff on 2001: A Space Odyssey contains some nice panning effects as the spaceship drifts in from the left, along with some rather boisterous low frequency rumbling. Several of the framing scenes offer great sound effects and even the running commentary during This Island Earth features above average separation. Fidelity is excellent and, again defying expectations, dynamic range is quite wide.
