DVD Is Just a Burned Copy of the VHS Version. Shame on Echo

""Space Mutiny" is a classic of bad cinema. This movie gained fame as the basis of one of the best episodes of Mystery Science Theater 3000, and you would think someone would have released the movie on its own long before now. Well, Echo Bridge Home Entertainment has rushed out this DVD and it is nothing more than the VHS version burned onto a DVD. The audio quality is poor: there are no audio options and I actually had a hard time getting the sound chanelled through my set! The video quality is awful: grainy and washed out...it looks like what it is: a cheap bootleg. In short, don't be seduced by the small pricetag and buy this garbage. I have many bootleg DVDs that are of much better quality than this. "Space Mutiny" deserves to finally be released in a Widescreen format, hopefully with the deleted scenes that are present on the cover of the VHS version. Until then, there is the VHS version and, of course, the MST3K version for you to purchase. Stay away from this poor quality DVD. It is just junk and Amazon should be ashamed of itself for continuing to stock it."
This can not be watched without MST3K commentary...

"In the same context that Plan 9 from Outer Space is bad and should be watched, Space Mutiny is a lesson of things NOT to do.
Rule Number 1
Do NOT cast your grandmother as the female romantic lead. It's just plain creepy.
Rule Number 2
Continuity is important. Do NOT show dead crew members on the bridge after you kill them off.
Rule Number 3
Should you feel that your man brute leading character has a need to yell, do NOT let him scream like a little girl. It just ruins the image.
Rule Number 4
If you want to show dance clubs in outer space. Do NOT use hula hoops and do NOT let your grandmother use one. She could dislocate her hip.
Rule Number 5
When people get shot, it is NOT necessary that they jump to their deaths over a railing. After the first 60 times, people start to expect it.
This movie is just awful. My guess is that they filmed half of it in an empty warehouse and the other half in a brewery. This film should not be viewed without chemical supplements. Should you find yourself lost in the plot of this flop, you could lose your mind.
This is best viewed with the commentary of the MST3k crew. You can watch it without it, but, like running with scissors, I recommend you don't."

"Wow! What a cast of characters first theres commander Santa Claus, his middle aged daughter (we are expected to disregard our eyes and believe that she's young & hot), A thick as a pot roast hero that screams like a little girl and a villain (we know this by his patented evil laugh and his fondness for ancient dentistry) named Kalgon.
Mystery Science Theater skewered this cinematic offal to uproarious effect. There's so many elements that leave you speechless; The space ship interior that looks suspiciously like a commercial warehouse and the exterior shots ripped off from the 70's Battlestar Galactica series. The crewmember that is killed and magically appears in the very next scene unharmed. There is so much cheese in this movie, you'll be visually constipated for several days."
That goofy laugh

"I can see why Mystery Science Theater 3000 used this as one of its featured films; the acting is just over the top. I couldn't tell if they were all trying to be that bad or if they thought they were really doing a good job, I guess we will never know. All the space footage was stolen straight from battle star galactica, the bridge personnel were dressed in swim suits, jump suits and sleeveless costumes, nothing matched. Now for the interior of the ship it was nothing more than the inside of a factory which they didn't even try to make to look like a ship, I'm surprised they took the time to cover the windows.
If you just want to laugh at a bunch of morons, buy this film and get good and toasted.
