Editorial Reviews

After six seasons of sublime, nerdy fun on television, the cult comedy series Mystery Science Theater 3000 took to the big screen in 1996 for its deliriously funny takedown of the 1955 alien invasion epic This Island Earth.


Evil scientist Dr. Clayton Forrester explains the premise at the start: in his quest for world domination, he devises a scheme to subject the human race to the worst movies ever made. He tests his plan on Mike Nelson, the sole human aboard an Earth-orbiting space station known as the Satellite of Love. But our hero and his two robot sidekicks turn a lemon into a much funnier lemon by showering This Island Earth with wisecracks, ridicule and general silliness. The human race may never be rid of cheesy movies, but when the critics are this nutty, who cares?

Customer Reviews

One of the best movies I have ever seen.
Amazon Customer
There are no subtitles on this release but video transfer looks great, both Bluray and DVD have the same content.
CDS
For all the bad things that I might be saying about this movie, there are as many good things.

While various MST3K episodes have circulated over the internet and from companies like Rhino, the MST3K movie has long since disappeared from DVD shelves. Now, rather than rent a copy from Netflix and then "lose" it so you can keep one (or pay extravagant prices on Ebay), Universal has rereleased this great film to the delight of fans everywhere.

So what makes this different from any normal episode? Well, first of all it's set between the sixth and seventh seasons (right after the departure of TV's Frank and before Pearl joins as a regular), so Doctor F has the bad guy side all to himself. Fortunately, Trace is more than capable of making his every moment on screen a blast (there's even a funny "mini-origin" monologue that starts the film off to catch everyone up to speed). The set is finally expanded here and we get to see more of the ship finally. But, strangely enough, this is actually SHORTER than any of the episodes you see on television. This was done because the studio was afraid people who weren't familiar with the show would get bored in the theater--but of course, why would they go see it if they weren't familiar with the show in the first place?

The movie they choose to riff is "This Island Earth", which I always thought wasn't such a bad film anyway. However, Mike and the Bots do manage to squeeze in some great lines throughout. Definitely worth the time!

One small warning: they do use a few more colorful words here than they did on television. Not often by any means, but they sneak a couple in here and there.

I'm so glad we're finally seeing this gem return to DVD! Don't know what brought it on, but thank you!

I am posting this as a counter balance to the idiot who gave this a low review simply because he doesn't like MST3K and wants THIS ISLAND EARTH released on the BluRay along with the riffed version. I am getting really tired of seeing low reviews for items BEFORE the damn things are released. I know I'm contributing to the very problem I am raging against, but I needed to even things out on this one.

MST3K The Movie got great reviews when it was in theaters in 1996 and deservedly so. Even after the studio chopped it down to a mere 75 minutes they couldn't destroy anything this funny. Siskel and Ebert at the time raved about it, as did most fans and critics. Sadly, the DVD has been out of print in the USA for many years, so it's great that this is available again for all the MSTies who missed out on it the first time around.

The movie being "riffed" is the classic color SF film from 1955, This Island Earth, starring Rex Reason, Faith Domergue (she was also in It Came From Beneath The Sea), Russell Johnson (the Professor on Gilligan's Island), and Jeff Morrow. It's a great looking film that is reasonably entertaining and well-made. However, as the MST3K writers point out repeatedly during jokes in this film, there's still plenty to make fun of, such as futuristic looking props that don't seem to have an actual purpose, plot premise issues, and some general fantastic silliness. MST3K The Movie is a lot of fun.

Note that Frank Conniff and Joel Hodgson had both left MST3K by the time that this film was made, so the Satellite of Love (SOL) is helmed by Mike Nelson and Dr. Forrester is on his own in Deep 13. The jokes are top notch, though occasionally a bit more PG-13 than on the regular MST3K TV show. The SOL and Deep 13 sets constructed for the film are slightly more elaborate than those previously used for the TV show on Comedy Central to that point. There are even a few scenes in the SOL in more than one location! The movie does follow the same general format as the TV show, including host segments. Look for the "Manos" reference during one host segment. This DVD is recommended!

I was/am a huge fan of the MST3K series - still have a ton of the episodes on tape. Saw this movie the first day it hit the theaters here in Austin - thought it was great.

I was happy to see that there is a bluray edition of this coming soon, as I really need to replace my old laserdisc copy. So I've got it pre-ordered and can't wait to get it. I know this really ain't a review for the actual item - but as soon at it arrives, I'll bang out a review for it (well, I'll take time to watch it first).

Also went ahead and pre-ordered this, Mystery Science Theater 3000: 25th Anniversary Edition [Limited-Edition Collector's Tin]

ETA:

Got the DVD/Bluray set in - the movie looks great on Bluray. I did have some problems with accessing the Bonus Features on the Bluray, but I think that is more a case that I need to update my player's firmware again (seems like ever other Bluray disc I buy I have to do that). But no problems with access the content on the DVD. Here is a list of what comes on the discs (and how long each plays - in minutes)..

Bonus Features:
The Making of Mystery Science Theater 3000 the Movie - 5:17
Mystery Science Theater 300 The Movie: The Motion Picture Odyssey - 33:05
This Island Earth: 2 1/2 Years in the Making - 36:46
Deleted Scenes - 23:10
Original Trailer - 1:40
