My 4 year old Thomas fanatic and I were able to see Blue Mountain Mystery at Showcase Cinemas' Kidtoons. He was so excited, and it didn't disappoint! Even better, I loved it. One thing that is important to me is realism, and unlike prior Thomas movies where Thomas floats on water and logs magically get tossed by Wheezy onto flatbeds, this movie was much more realistic.

This story heralds a return many of the "old" familiars, including many on the narrow gauge engine line that we don't see very often in the current Thomas the Tank Engine series on TV like Rheneas, Skarloey, and Rusty. Annie and Clarabel have some really cute spots with Thomas on his Branch Line that had the whole theater laughing. His relationship with them is charming.

Blue Mountain Mystery also introduces us to some fun new characters: Merrick the quarry crane, Luke the narrow gauge engine, Owen the quarry lift, and Winston the crazy rail-mobile that Sir Topham Hatt drives (very laugh-inducing to watch the car's sudden start-stops and wrong direction driving mishaps).

SPOILER ALERT: I'm going to give some spoilers here so that you know if this is something that you'd want to show your children, nieces, nephews, grandchildren, friends, etc. I'm not going to reveal the mystery though!

The story opens with a bridge accident at the quarry - my son has always been fascinated with bridges and has re-enacted bridge crashes a million times with his Thomas sets. Most of the workers at the quarry are narrow gauge engines and they are on friendly terms with Thomas. He then sees a darting little green engine a few times, but when he asks around, everyone avoids his questions blushingly. You know something is up, and the mystery builds.

Blue Mountain Mystery revolves around Luke, a small green narrow gauge engine. He's afraid he'll be sent away if anyone finds out what he did. Through investigation and hard work, Thomas befriends Luke and learns what happened. After hearing Luke's story, Thomas sets off to find the yellow engine who fell off the boat.

BMM is a major improvement from the poorly constructed "Day of the Diesels" and the awful "Misty Island Rescue". The dialogue is no longer forced and there is not exaggeration on words. The film also has some hidden easter eggs on the biggest of Thomas fans will notice. Such are: The Marklin Engine (in scrap form) at the Dieselworks, The "Rolling Eyes" effect, etc. It's also the first time the Narrow Gauge engines are seen in FULL CGI!

The discs, on the other hand, are a mystery themselves. This is the first Thomas disc to be released in its native 23.976 frame rate. This allows for better quality overall throughout the film. But the main problem is the audio and the length.

The film runs (on the disc) for 1:03:58. It's supposed to be 1:01:27. Somewhere along the line, the film was slowed down and can be noticed in certain audio sequences.

The 5.1 DTS Mix is another problem. There is a lot of phasing and "channel-switching". This can be heard during the WORKING TOGETHER song in the beginning of the film. Listen carefully to the sound effects as well. It's painful to listen to a mix THIS bad.

Overall, with all technical aspects aside, BMM is a must own for any Thomas fan. The kids, and even the adults, will enjoy this sweet tale of the little green engine.

My boys love Thomas movies and this one is of course their new favorite! With new characters (train, crane and more) it makes for new fun and excitement for kids. My boys love seeing the new characters, which of course then they want to own! "Blue Mountain Mystery" is a simple mystery for kids, which my 5 year old is totally into right now. He is so curious and loves to try to figure things out. The dialogue is simple and easy enough for young kids to understand, especially compared to the usual language of weird sayings they use. This one has some action, but nothing really inappropriate (although it may be scary in some scenes but my boys weren't afraid.) This movie comes after "Day of the Diesels" (I think) and I actually like this one a lot more. I feel like the Thomas movies have improved and my boys have watched this one a million times already!

Let me tell you about one of the more pressure packed situations I’ve enjoyed the past few years. I’m an older retired fellow who is having the time of his life watching the next generation of “Bowman” clan begin to develop into their own interests. And what do they like? Old faithful: Thomas the Tank Engine.

Somehow it has been left to me to stay abreast of all developing video material (films, specials & miniseries) as they market to the store racks. I finance them, attempt to keep track of the right order, and then view them for questioning afterwards. It’s been hell…:-)… I put this list together and it has been a savior. Hope it helps!

2000 – Thomas & the Magic Railroad [1]
2005 – Calling All Engines [2][7]
2006 – On Site with Thomas [3]
2007 – Engines and Escapes – [4]
2008 – The Great Discovery – [5][7]
2009 – Hero of the Rails – [5][7]
2010 – Misty Island Rescue – [5]
2011 – Day of the Diesels – [5]
2012 – Blue Mountain Mystery – [5]
2013 – King of the Railway – [5]
2014 – Tale of the Brave – [6]

[1] – Theatrically released feature film
[2] – Feature length direct-to-videos special
[3] – 13 Episode direct-to-video miniseries
[4] – 6 Episode direct-to-video miniseries
[5] – Limited theatrically released feature length special
[6] – Feature length special
[7] – Available in a 3 movie collection.

PS – There is an immense amount of available video content regarding Thomas & his Friends. This list is my attempt to keep up with just the films, specials & miniseries. Also, along the way I have been hearing chatter over a possible upcoming live action feature film (along the lines of 2000’s Thomas & the Magic Railroad) that will be set during World War II.
