Editorial Reviews

Arena (4:3)

Far in the future, on a distant world, the best fighters in the universe compete in a gladiator-like sport called Arena. Steve Armstrong is the first Earthling good enough to be a contender, but an extra-terrestrial crimelord seeks to end Steve’s career for good.


Eliminators (4:3)

A mandroid, part man and part machine, seeks revenge on the evil scientist who created him. Enlisting the help of a beautiful woman and a mysterious ninja, he pursues the scientist in hopes of stopping him before he can cause further harm to humanity. Andrew Prine (The Town That Dreaded Sundown) and Denise Crosby (Star Trek: The Next Generation) star in this fast-paced actioner.

EXTRA FEATURE: Interview with Andrew Prine

America 3000  (4:3)

In this strange new world of 2890, many years after the apocalypse, savage but beautiful Amazon warriors rule the wasteland and enslave the male population in labor and breeding camps. This inventive re-envisioning of the future stars Laurene Landon (Manic Cop, Hundra).


The Time Guardian (Widescreen 2.35:1)

In the year 4039, as the human race nears extinction under the rule of beast-like creatures, an entire city travels through time in hopes of evading capture and forever changing the future. Tom Burlinson (The Man From Snowy River), Carrie Fisher (Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope) and Dean Stockwell (Quantum Leap) star in this science-fiction epic.

This is an overall decent collection of four mid 1980's sci-fi flicks that I thoroughly enjoyed watching back then. I eagerly waited for this release when first heard about it. Shout! Factory are noted for the quality of their releases, so I'm going to comment on some DVD attributes I look for that are important to me, and I'm sure, others out there.

Be aware that only one, The Time Guardian, is anamorphic widescreen at 2.35:1. The others are Full Frame (4:3). For those with quality home theater audio systems for surround sound take note, none of the movies are encoded for Dolby Digital 5.1, though all were originally encoded with stereo sound tracks. Arena, America 3000, and The Time Guardian have true stereo Dolby Digital 2.0 tracks. They sound decent and enveloping with the Dolby Pro Logic II settings on an AV receiver.

Audio quality is just as important to me as the video experience. The big disappointment for me was the mono soundtrack on the Eliminators, the flick I most eagerly waited for out of the four . The mono soundtrack was so dull and lifeless, despite the action scenes, I stopped watching this about half way through. Believe it or not (and some readers may scoff at this), I dug out my old VHS copy of Eliminators with the VHS HI-FI Dolby Surround audio tracks and watched that instead with 1080p up scaling to compare to the DVD. I enjoyed and preferred my old VHS copy more than I did the brand new DVD copy. The DVD version had the edge on video quality, but the analog audio HI-FI Stereo quality of the VHS version totally blew away the DVD mono version in an A & B audio comparison. Normally, DVD releases will blow away their VHS counterpart in terms of overall quality but I had to note this exception in this review, at least my opinion.

Another sweet release from those wacked-out guys at Shout! Factory. Four films (two films on each single-sided disc) from prolific producer Charles Band, king of B-grade sci-fi trash films from the Regan era!!! His work is every bit as good, if not better, than the stuff cranked out by Roger Corman. I was drawn to ELIMINATORS when it originally came out on VHS because of the awesome artwork in my local video store: a big, stand-up cardboard poster with a blinking LED for the Mandroid's roboeye. Hard for a kid to resist a lure like that! LOL. I really love ELIMINATORS. It's basically a mish-mash comic book come to life. (Writers Danny Bilson & Paul De Meo would go on to create the awesome, but sadly short-lived TV series "The Flash" in 1990 and Knight Rider wanna-be "Viper" in 1994, among all of their other work.) I was so pumped to finally see ELIMINATORS on home video, and in a nice 4-movie pack, to boot! Heck, I would've paid the same price (or more) just for Eliminators!

I had never seen the other three films, but luckily Arena turned out to be a lot of fun, and The Time Guardian & America 3000 were enjoyably silly as well. I think this 2-disc double feature set is a great bargain if you're a fan of this kind of film or are a Empire/Charles Band aficionado. The only complaint is that the transfers are all sort of rough-looking and some of them are 4x3 format instead of widescreen. I am unsure of what the original screen ratios were for these films though, so that may be the way they were shot, but I doubt it. Still, it's just cool to have Eliminators (and the other three films) in my collection. Now I can finally toss that old video tape!

EDIT>>>>> If you're a fan of ELIMINATORS and happen to own a Blu-ray player then you also have the option now to buy Shout!Factory's newest Blu release, which combined the excellent ELIMINATORS with the THE DUNGEONMASTER. Just a heads-up.

I have been waiting for years to get my hands on a respectable release of ARENA and ELIMINATORS and Shout! Factory have finally come through! I am loving these 4 film collections they're releasing because they're really giving the fans what they're asking for. I mean, who woulda thunk we'd see CELLAR DWELLER (coming soon!) released on DVD? These sets may not be super fancy HD releases but they look great; clean, watchable and solid sound. For those of you upset with four films being packed on to two discs, I get it, but this is what we're getting, like it or leave it.

For those that like it, grab this film collection NOW! I mean the lineup is geek gold. AMERICA 3000 is insanely bad but fun, ARENA and ELIMINATORS is cheesy sci-fi goodness and THE TIME GUARDIANS is entertaining in its own way. For the price, this collection kicks tail. Is it really worth buying? If you're into this kind of cinema, I'd say 100% yes.

This review is from: SciFi Movie Marathon (America 3000, Arena, Eliminators & The Time Guardians) (DVD)
This is a two disc set with four vintage sci-fi films that are decently restored. These films are all of the cult-campy style and individually I have separately reviewed all of them giving them from 3-5 stars. Overall this is a good value for those who like these kind of features. All the films are rated US rated PG to PG-13 with brief nudity (Nikki Coghill) in one film and some poorly simulated sex in others.

The films also star Carrie Fischer, Denise Cosby, Andrew Prine, and Chuck Wagner in roles they all regret.
