Saturn 3 Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Saturn 3 is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Scream Factory, an imprint of Shout! Factory, with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.85:1. Shout! is trumpeting a brand new high definition transfer for Saturn 3, and it does look remarkably good most of the time. The film was lensed by the well regarded British cinematographer Billy Williams, who would go on to win an Oscar for Gandhi. Williams is hampered however by an unattractive set that consists largely of hallways with plastic tubing running in and around them, as well as some less than convincing miniatures. The biggest complaint some may have is a certain pallid quality to the color, especially with regard to flesh tones, which often seem kind of pale brown-beige rather than full blooded. The image is decently if not overwhelmingly detailed and contrast and black levels are both strong and consistent. A natural layer of grain is readily apparent (which of course spikes in the many optical effects sequences). There are a couple of odd anomalies here. There's some fairly noticeable telecine wobble in the opening credits, and then something that I can only call a telecine earthquake at about 1:26:10, during the closing credits, when suddenly the entire credits roll tilts suddenly slightly sideways. Maybe Hector the robot grabbed the telecine operator.


Saturn 3 Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Saturn 3 received standard Dolby and six track releases for its 35mm and 70mm iterations, and those mixes are recreated here via DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 and 5.1 options. Perhaps a bit surpisingly, the 5.1 mix is relatively restrained, limiting a lot of the sonic action to the front channels. Occasional foley effects spill into the side and rear channels, but it's typically Elmer Bernstein's score that tends to fill out the surrounds more than anything. That said, the mix is relatively involving, if not overly immersive. This is really not a "whiz bang" science fiction spectacular, and so the sound mix is fairly conservative to begin with, but both DTS-HD Master Audio offerings present dialog, effects and score cleanly and clearly, with excellent prioritization.
