Editorial Reviews

His high school teacher issues an ultimatum: Turn in a science project or flunk. So Mike Harlan (John Stockwell) scavenges a military base's junk pile for a suitable gizmo. He finds one ... and unwittingly unleashes the awesome power and energy of the unknown. Twisted dimensions. Time warps. A fantastic realm where the past, present, and future collide in a whirling vortex of startling adventure and superlative special effects!

I really enjoyed the VHS version of this film, which has become a cult classic, so as you would expect I was eagerly awaiting the DVD version of it. Well after purchasing it and receiving it the other day I have to say I was hugely disappointed! The DVD version of the film is lousy!
No attempt was made at all from what I could see to restore the original version for transfer to DVD. In fact it seems from what we viewed that they must have simply copied a not to great film copy over to DVD. The images are fuzzy at times and depth and clarity, which we have come to expect from DVD versions, is simply not there at all. The full screen version even seems to have cut some stuff out of the screen view in some scenes which leaves you guessing at what the actors are looking at.
If you have VHS version of this film, keep it instead and pass on this badly done DVD version! I am very unhappy with it. The only reason that I rated it a 3, instead of a 1, is that the film is not at fault, just the DVD treatment of it.

It's sad that Anchor Bay Entertainment and Touchstone Films chose not to not make any real effort to give this film the DVD treatment it so richly deserves. Two thumbs down on this DVD version!

I liked this movie when it first came out, I like it now
and my kids who are Star Wars , Lord of the Rings fans,
like it too.
Yes it's geeky and very 80's. But that was the audience, it was made for. Just take that into account because your not going to get Jurrassic Park and Fhantom Menace,special effects in this time frame. If they did this movie now with the effects of today it would knock your socks off. It's just fun escapism.

I saw this movie in 1986. I was about fourteen, tagging along with my mother on one of her business trips and bored in the hotel room. Mom rented this for me on the hotel's pay per view, and I spent a very enjoyable afternoon enthralled with it. I identified immediately with the heroine: cute, nerdy chick with plenty of unsuspected spunk. She has to take out her retainer to kiss the hero! And the hero (sigh) my idea of an ideal boyfriend at the time: blue collar sexy with a sensitive streak. Very cool movie!

As some others have said, "My Science Project" is pure 80s absurdity - but that doesn't make it a bad thing. With surprisingly high production values and a premise that was every misfit's high school dream (as in saving the day, getting the girl, and winning the respect of your peers), it's hard for an 80s-born nerd such as myself NOT to enjoy it. Since I was a kid I've always had a soft spot for this cheesy flick, and it hasn't changed with time. It may be too campy for much of today's audience, but it's jam-packed with that nostalgic 80s flavor and some really fun moments.

And this movie prooves that. I have this on Laserdisc.. and there was no way my collection could be without it. Definitely a comedy of all sorts- dark, light- romantic. You have to love Fisher Stevens catchphrases- I'd watch the movie just for his one-liners. I wish I could turn my high school into a timewarp- From dinosaurs to future invaders- this flick solves conflicts among all time periods. Ever see a dinosaur invade the gym before? If the team of Zucker and Abrahms ever got ahold of this movie watch out. I love this movie because it always makes me laugh- at the world around me- at scifi- or is it laugh with scifi- another classic 80's flick. And this fantastic exploit of adventure are enough to bring out the child in all of us.

This IS the second time I've order "My Science Project" now from two different vendors and both times I've received the full frame 1.33:1 aspect ratio version not the widescreen version as stated on the Amazon page and both orders fulfilled by Amazon!!

Here's what you should know about this version of the dvd it's released by Mill Creek their version is the one pictured on the Amazon page the Mill Creek dvd art is of the main cast looking up at the Touchstone logo and WITHOUT Dennis Hopper.

The Anchor Bay version which was released on 05/18/1999 and is now out of print and the dvd cover art is the main cast at the bottom looking up at WITH Dennis Hopper and is both a widescreen 2.35:1 and full frame 1.33:1 version. Here the rub! If you goggle "Anchor Bay", "My Science Project" go under images and you can see the Anchor Bay version for sale on Amazon!! For reason I can't understand you can't find the Anchor Bay version on the Amazon site when you search for it on Amazon?

Here's the link to the Widescreen version on Amazon!!
http://www.amazon.com/My-Science-Project-John-Stockwell/dp/B00000IQB7/ref=cm_cmu_pg_t

Also a quality of print note: Evidently Anchor Bay, was only offered the Laserdisc master for the source to make the transfer to dvd. Due to politics of studios and how the contracts are structured in these deals. Anchor Bay did the best they could with what they had and I applauded them for making the effort. This will not be a blu-ray quality version, best you can hope for is 480p quality maybe a little better depending in screen and player but no more than that.
