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?
• Deleted scenes including the removed sequences from the riffed motion picture and the alternate ending.
• Mystery Science Theater 3000 The Movie: The Motion Picture Odyssey (including new interviews with cast and crew and never-before-seen behind the scenes footage)

This is my fifth MST3K purchase. I used to watch them on TV when I got off from my "dog watch" shift. They just suit my weird
sense of humor I guess. Read more
Make no mistake - this is an acquired taste. Not for everyone. But if you like this brand of humor, and especially if you've seen any of the original series, then this is great. Read morePublished 3 months ago by C. A. Coshow Jr.
