Even as a gargantuan MST3K fan, I was always irked by the fact that the gang chose to mock a genuinely good movie. It's gratifying, therefore, to see the ambitious This Island Earth reclaimed for posterity.

Pioneering sf drama about space travel is rich in storytelling, atmosphere, visual design and color.

...even though its increasingly camp elements have aged poorly, it deserves respect as one of the more ambitious, grandiose, and important science fiction adventures of its time.

Pretty impressive sci-fi for 1955, a near classic.

Eye-filling sci-fi, although it's even better as the basis of 'MST3K: The Movie'

An appalling film, but good fodder for the mocking in "Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Movie"

Inexplicably well-regarded, as ludicrous and simple-minded as they come

Big budget, elaborate sci-fi. Nice to look at, but rather slow.
