Santa Claus Conquers the Martians Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

Let's get his out of the way up front: Santa Claus Conquers the Martians has never looked "good" on home video—it's had a series of grubby, chopped-up releases from several minor labels—and it probably never will. That said, Kino's new Blu-ray release is by far the best yet, despite a few source-related issues. The first thing you'll notice is that the 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer is in 1.37:1, not the film's original 1.85:1 theatrical aspect ratio. Kino has stated that this is because the master they used was sourced from a 16mm answer print that was specifically created for television broadcast. Prints of the movie are rare, so they've had to work with what was available to them. Fair enough. This cut of the film is surprisingly complete—I've seen other editions where scenes are missing and the theme song drops in and out suddenly—and the print is in fair condition, all things considered. There are still white and black specks, vertical scratches, and slight brightness/color fluctuations throughout—the film is essentially presented as is—but at least there's no smeary digital noise reduction or edge enhancement. While the 16mm picture is consistently soft, seeing the movie in high definition certainly yields a noticeable improvement in clarity. The film's candy-hued color palette seems accurate too, with its Martian greens and cheery Christmas reds. I didn't spy any blatant compression problems or other concerns worth noting. The film is what it is, and this is probably the best version of it we'll get for some time to come.


Santa Claus Conquers the Martians Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

You'd be as wise as Chochem not to expect much from the film's lossless DTS-HD Master Audio mono track, which is rife with its own age and source- related issues. Still, the mix is at the very least listenable. You'll hear occasional splice pops, crackles, and low hissing, and much of the dialogue has a husky, muddy, mid-heavy quality, but you'll always be able to understand what's being said. (Which is fortunate, since the disc has no subtitle options whatsoever.) I'm just happy that the very 1960s theme song is presented in its entirety. But beware—you'll have it stuck in your head for days.
