Robinson Crusoe on Mars Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 2.37:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Byron Haskin's Robinson Crusoe on Mars arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Criterion.

The following text appears inside the booklet provided with this Blu-ray disc:

"This high-definition digital transfer was created on a Spirit 4K Datacine from 35mm 2-perforation A/B interpositive struck from the original negative. Thousands of instances of dirt, debris, scratches, splices, warps, jitter, and flicker were manually removed using MTI's DRS system and Pixel Farm's PFClean system, while Digital Vision's DVNR system was used for small dirt, grain, and noise reduction.

Telecine supervisor: Maria Palazzola.
Telecine colorist: Gregg Garvin/Modern Videofilm, Los Angeles."

Criterion's Blu-ray release of Robinson Crusoe on Mars represents a dramatic upgrade in quality over previous release of the film - fine object detail is very good, clarity substantially improved, and contrast levels (especially during the final third of the film) a lot more consistent than I expected them to be. Stability is also improved; on Criterion's SDVD release of Robinson Crusoe on Mars there is quite a bit of background shimmer, and around the edges the image is not as tight as it is here. The macroblocking issues have also been eliminated, thus those of you with digital projectors should be pleased by the new depth and fluidity the image conveys. This being said, there are still a few scenes that look somewhat soft and a couple of minor discolorations that pop up here and there, but these are obviously inherited limitations. Lastly, I did not see any large damage marks, warps, debris, cuts, or stains to report in this review. (Note: This is a Region-A "locked" Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you must have a native Region-A or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


Robinson Crusoe on Mars Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

There is only one audio track on this Blu-ray disc: English LPCM 1.0. For the record, Criterion have provided optional English SDH subtitles for the main feature. When turned on, they appear inside the image frame.

The following text appears inside the booklet provided with this Blu-ray disc:

"The monaural soundtrack was remastered at 24-bit from a 35mm magnetic full-coat three-track master. Clicks, thumps, hiss, and hum were manually removed using Pro Tools HD. Crackle was attenuated using Audio Cube's integrated workstation."

The English LPCM 1.0 track has a surprisingly strong dynamic amplitude - during the spaceship attacks the bass is actually quite strong, while a few of the mine explosions nave a pretty strong edge. The dialog is crisp, clean, stable, and exceptionally easy to follow. There are no balance issues with Van Cleave's music score either.
