Product Description

Product Description

From the makers of the highly successful cult classic TV series comes Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Movie - one of the most outrageous, most irreverent, and most hilarious big-screen spoofs ever! A mad scientist, in his quest for world domination, concocts a diabolical scheme to subject the human race to the worst movie ever made: 1955's This Island Earth. It's up to one test subject's quick wit, sharp sense of humor, and utter intolerance for cinematic garbage to foil the plans of the scientist and to save the Earth. Experience the hijinks and low jabs of Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Movie - where the worse the movie is, the better time you'll have!

Amazon.ca

The cult television show (in which a hapless space explorer and his robot pals are forced to watch and deliver a hilarious running commentary on bad movies) makes a successful transition to the big screen as Mike and the 'bots lay waste to the '50s sci-fi yarn This Island Earth (a painfully stiff would-be epic that's actually a cut above the usual MST3K fare). While ardent fans may be a little miffed that more advantage isn't taken of the expanded theatrical venue (aside from a tad more scatological humor than usual, the content here would fit in comfortably as a regular episode of the series), the nonstop, hyper-literate salvo of comedy riffs that run the gamut from references to Tommy Chong's backyard to Yes album covers more than make up for any conceptual complacency. Be prepared to laugh till it aches. --Andrew Wright --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

MST3K (Mystery Science Theater 3000) was a ground-breaking genre-buster. American movie culture had already seen the rise of the horror-movie show, usually with outrageous and witty hosts like Elvira or the unforgettable Zachary. However, MST3K truly integrated the concept of audience response. HAve you ever gotten together with friends to watch a cheesy sci-fi or horror movie, only to find yourselves ad-libbing your own wisecracks into the dialogue? That is the whole MST3K concept. Mike Nelson and his two robot friends Tom Servo and Crow are forced by an evil scientist to watch the worst movies imaginable in an attempt to break their spirits. However, throughout the film, we see their silhouettes against a movie screen as they quip their way through the entire movie. For instance, as a meteor crashes in the movie, we hear one of the robots say, "Oh no! Tinkerbell's goin' down! Pull up, Tink!". In MST3K: The Movie, the trio is forced to watch the 1950's sci-fi sleeper "This Island Earth" We watch them as they watch the movie, ad-libbing the entire script. The original dialogues are left in, so the result is a text within a text. A concept hard to describe, and even harder not to enjoy.

"Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Movie" -- it sounds very grand and impressive, doesn't it? But except for a couple of extra sets, the movie version of this snarky little series is pretty much the same as the episodes -- a painfully bad movie that Mike Nelson and his sarcastic robot pals relentlessly mock.

As explained by evil Dr. Forrester ("I'm a NAUGHTY BOY!"), he has trapped Mike on the Satellite of Love, and is plying him with terrible movies to see what breaks him. This is apparently part of his evil plan to conquer the world.

Meanwhile on the Satellite of Love, everything is pretty much normal -- Gypsy is running the ship, Mike is running on a giant hamster wheel (complete with water bottle!) and Crow is trying to tunnel back to Earth. After a near-fatal hull breach ("Mommy mommy mommy I LOVE YOU, MAAAAAAAAAAAA..."), the guys are called in to watch their latest movie.

Unfortunately, that movie is "This Island Earth," a pretentious sci-fi flick that was apparently made up as they went along. A bunch of rather dumb scientists are called by a secret organization of suspiciously large-skulled people who are obviously aliens. Immediately the rugged Carl Meecham decides to break out of the place (you volunteered to go, idiot) along with his required love interest -- and soon they find themselves whisked onto a flying saucer and headed for the planet Metaluna. Of course, things go downhill after that.

Despite the "The Movie" tag, this movie is basically just a slightly expanded episode of the series. The guys get to be a little cruder in their language, and we see a couple more rooms on the Satellite of Love when Mike and the robots try to hail Earth using a hokey-looking communicator. Of course, it all goes horribly wrong.

I'll keep this very brief...

It's not too darned often that I'll give a five star review to such a slim product. This new DVD re-release contains no extras whatsoever (not even chapter selection). Furthermore, the whole thing clocks in at just over 74 minutes (and that includes the end credits).

Nevertheless, those 74 minutes are among the funniest 74 minutes of any comedy film ever made. On that basis -- and on that basis alone -- this disc is worth your time and money.

If you're a longtime MSTie, you'll want to get this (assuming you don't own it already). If you've never seen an episode of "Mystery Science Theater 3000" before in your life, this is as good an introduction to the show as you can find.

Do not hesitate, do not pass go, ignore the fact that this dvd is quite possibly the worst packaging of a movie ever (no extras or chapter selection). You must own this movie. Buy it, watch it and share it with all your friends. This is the funniest and most quotable movie since "Monty Python and the Holy Grail". You will not stop laughing when you and your friends repeat the clever riffs to eachother, even days and weeks later.

For the longest time, this movie was no longer available without shelling out $400+ to some jerk on Ebay, but now it's back!!!

Buy this now!

Watched a VHS version of this vid with mi-laddos a number of years ago and tryly enjoyed it. Decided to add a DVD copy to my library. It's the movie alright, but the first thing I noticed (and turned my nose up at) was its lack of scene selections. I mean WTF's with that?!? Ain't this 2008?
Anyway, that's my one & only complaint (which explains the 4-starred rating - otherwise it would've gotten 5!).
If you're a fan of any space program parody (Red Dwarf, Hitchhiker's Guide...), then do yourself a favour and add this to your library.

Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
While it's not my favourite MST3K feature and not even close to the laughs they got with seasons 8-10 of the TV show (sorry, I just prefer the chemistry of Bill, Mike and Kevin more) I'm just happy to have this in HD. The special features are solid and were really the main reason I bought this and to much of my surprise the case inlay is reversible and, in my opinion cooler, because it fits the art style we all know and love of the Shout! Factory DVD releases. Also, that riff referencing Bootsy Collins should have been left in!
