Title: I Just Finished Watching...
Post by: gammer on April 07, 2008, 05:58:51 AM
We have a thread similar to this over on the MST3K Discussion forum (http://forrestcrow.proboards47.com/index.cgi). And I like the idea of it, so I thought I'd start  one like it here...

Feel free to post the most recent MST3K episode(s) that you've viewed and your thoughts, musings and/or reviews...
It could be the first time you've seen them or the 10th...doesn't matter.

Oh, great idea for a thread!  ;)

I just finished watching 310 - FUGITIVE ALIEN and 318 - STAR FORCE: FUGITIVE ALIEN II this weekend.
Classics!...real icons in MST history. I think Fugitive Alien II was slightly funnier, but both were good. And who could ever get enough of:
"He tried to kill him with a forklift!"  :)

A couple nights ago I watched Devil Fish for the first time in a long time.  It's got some classic stuff in it, and even the skits are above average in this episode.

Tom Servo doing the sounds of opening and chugging beer after beer really got me chuckling.

And who could forget the MST3K globe that had to cover up an unexpected.....ball.  Yikes.

I saw Teenage Strangler again the other day - actually, spread out over a few days at about 20-30 minutes before I go to bed - and it's the epitome of "small-town gets together to make a movie".  It's lousy, but even without the riffing, I think I'd still enjoy the heck out of it.

A couple of days ago I watched Village of the Giants for the first time. Very funny stuf. It reminded me of the old Tommy Kirk Disney movies like Flubber.

I particularly liked the riff about Tom recognizing the bubblegum machine as his mom and being heartbroken seeing the one guy get a gumball out of it.

"Parts: The Clonus Horror" on the most recent DVD set. I got more of the obscure references in this episode than in any other and that made it so much more hilarious. For example, I think maybe three people ever got Servo's reference making fun of the opening music.

This is the exact same thing I do too...
Watch 'em a little bit at a time. Usually I watch from one host segment to the next before I nod off to sleep.

Right now, I'm in the middle of 306 - TIME OF THE APES. After watching Fugitive Alien 1 and 2, it put me in a Sandy Frank mood.
I noticed that the voice of evil army leader in Apes is the same voice of Captain Joe from Fug Alien.

Having recently aquired Volume 12, I sat down with Tyrant to watch Starfighters....

WOW that movie is not as interesting as it sounds. What WAS that? It was all so procedural and technical. It's like it was developed as a preliminary training video by the air force or something, and they tried to spice it up, but they forgot to make anything interesting happen.

Starfighters is one of the few episodes I actually couldn't finish.  Not only is it an incredibly boring movie, I didn't think the riffing was very sharp.

I just watched Leech Woman.  Good riffing, and I quite enjoy the film itself as well.  Pretty dark subject matter.  It was pretty laughable how the titular character was able to hit the pituitary gland on all her victims without fail.  Even the guy who tried to mug her...she hit the gland from the front, while being choked!

Something similar happened in "City Limits" if I'm not mistaken. Joel opened up an umbrella to cover the girls bum as she was swimming in what looked like their fresh water supply.

"My loins will never stir again."

This was a tough one since it's basically 80% wrestling with very little dialogue but they still did a very good job. It also comes with a short about stupid high school kids getting married and a subsequent host segment involving the Crow and Servo's wedding.

323 - THE CASTLE OF FU MANCHU

Ok, I've watched this one 3 - 4 times now and the movie just does not make sense to me...
Was the original, un-mistied version that confusing? Or did it get chopped for MST?

I mean, I can see some of the Japanese movies not making sense, since they were just TV shows spliced together to make a movie, but this one should have been easier to follow.

MST3K:The Movie

I hadn't seen this since aaaaages ago when they occasionally showed it on Sky Movies at like 2pm in the afternoon on tuesdays and I was a wee dude. I know all about the issues with the production but with the DVD just re-released I wasn't really expecting what I got. My mind had played tricks on me, remembering scenes that were in Island Earth that didn't make the MST3K version. It's just all out weird. No theme, Mike weirdly re-dubbing his skits, a movie cut so short it makes the story utterly meaningless and its all over in a flash. It was like a pilot episode or something.
Still glad I've finally got it though.

Just odd. I'd hate to be someone who paid hundreds of dollars for it on ebay.

I actually saw this one uncut and unriffed back when I was a kid.  My untreated viewing was years before I ever saw it as an MST3K, so I can't tell you about any specific cuts, but it was every bit as grim and nonsensical.

K-12 Fugitive Alien, a Sandy Frank classic!

It was pretty cool to see how the fan club got started and also interesting that I liked an episode without Crow in it. Servo did just fine sitting on the right. I have decided now to try and watch the first two seasons in order (excluding what I've already seen) perhaps mixed with Mike's half of season 5 so I don't get a Joel overdose.

K-07 Gamera vs Zigra

The first appearance of the mads marks another historic moment.
Joel actually slapped the annoying Japanese boy across the face, best interaction with the movie ever.

Servo: "Do it again Joel."

Next Up: K-08 Gamera vs Guiron
You really have to give the early fans some serious props for sticking around through that Gamera marathon.

I was really hoping I could find a copy of episode 5 to see the first and only solo riff in the series but no dice. Downloading torrents and acessing the DAP server sounds way too complicated for my tastes.

I just watched this one. My second time. I'll add this one to my extensive list of episodes that seem to get funnier on second viewings. Although I thought the first half was quite a bit stronger than the second (second half had too many repetitive scenes.....monsters attacking, military counter-attacking,people running, monster attacking, military counterattacking..etc....and the riffing suffered as a result) this was a solid episode that doesn't get enough credit. And the Leonard Maltin thing was cute.

My KTMA Marathon continues with K-09 Phase IV.

"I thought it was pathetic. This made flying turtles look good!"_Servo

I like ants and thought there was some hope for this movie seeing the trailer and a handful of people apparently looking forward to a DVD release unriffed but I was bitterly disappointed. It was boring, bizarre in a bad way, and had a WTF sort of ending that really seemed to piss off Joel and the bots. It was a pretty good episode of course but the movie was terrible when it didn't have to be.

The version I found also included a commercial for Joel's local comedy act at the time and another where the mads endorsed a local pizza restaraunt for providing their lunch. That was rather amusing.

Yet another episode much funnier the second time around. In fact, I a had such a good time with this one I can't for the life of me think what the heck my problem was last year when I didn't care for it.  As many have said, this is one of the many magical things about MST. An episode that didn't do much for you the first time could very well have you in stitches on repeated viewings.

K-10 Cosmic Princess

I can't beleive I found this episode. I was prepared to just take whatever else was on youtube or google and just call it a day but then I found this and many more hidden away in the secret corners of the internet. Anyway, this movie was actually two episodes of Space: 1999 spliced together, the first time the show did this sort of movie.

It looks like they spent so much money on props and special effects that they had nothing left over for actors and even less for writers. Overall, still a pretty good epsisode from this era, seems like they get better as they go along. Servo's head actually popped off accidentaly for the first time and they just rolled with it. There's also a good 15 minute stretch where Servo keeps trying to attack Crow in the middle of the movie as they exchange insults and Joel holds them apart. It did a lot to distract me from how boring and dull the movie was. I don't remember them ever trying something like that in a later episode although I suppose with a written script they never needed to.

This actually aired during the Super Bowl between the Bengals and the 49ers so I imagine no one saw it at all until there was a rerun. Although there were some football related sketches.

Next Up: K-05 Gamera, a solo riff considered to be the worst episode ever

I'm ridiculously fond of these episodes.  The guys really made the most of what they had to work with, and it's great to watch them in action.  They at least look like they're having a lot of fun.  I'd never heard Joel giggle so much during the course of the show than I heard him giggle during one KTMA episode.

And there's a bunch of visual gags, too, which I always adore.  I think one of my favorites during this time was in a later Gamera episode.  At this point, the guys had said everything that could be said about the credits, so during the credits for this movie, the bots attempted to escape from the theater, and poor Joel had to corral the two of them.  A simple gag, and a little transparent, as the bots settled down immediately after the movie started, but I thought it was great.  Or maybe I'm just too easily amused.  Who knows?

"If you say 'Tippy' one more time, I'm gonna belt you. Stop it. STOP IT!"

As could be expected, the riffs were few and far between but surprisingly good. Considering that Servo still had his Kermit voice at that point, it might have been a good thing not having him on hand. Joel is especially funny as he harasses the annoying insane kid throughout the movie. "Gamera asked about you, Kenny. He wants to know when you will visit him."

The movie actually got my hopes up as it seemed to be taking itself seriously until the emotionally scarred little boy with his pet turtle showed up. At least he only said "Gamera is a friend to all children" just once, no one beleived him, and there was no theme music. Unlike some of the others, this is a legit monster movie complete with the customary destruction of Tokyo.

Next up: K-06 and K-11 if I can find it.

Watched Attack of the Giant Leeches and Giant Gila Monster....

Anyone else find it ironic that the intro to Gila Monster has footage from Godzilla vs. Megalon in it?

And we've got three Corman films....what about the rest?

But then I'm still trying to figure out why people say Amazing Colossal Man will never happen on DVD because of the VHS screw up...when they not only got Tormented by the same people but the producer and his daughter did an interview for it.   They can't be that mad at MST3K, eh?

Colossus and the Headhunters

Hadn't watched this in ages. It was a lot of fun to re-visit. It's worth watching for that dancing segment alone. I've always loved when they riff on bad singing and dancing. One of the main reasons I've always been a big fan of Horror of Party Beach and ISCWSLABMUZ.

A solid episode with  the usual strong season six riffing.

I'm not so sure anymore, but I thought the copyright holders for Amazing Colossal Man aren't necessarily those same people at this point.  If I'm wrong (and I hope I am) I don't see why we couldn't get that episode, here's hoping.  Also, the fact that the problem was with Rhino, and Rhino's been kicked to the curb might help matters.

I just watched Leech Woman.  Good riffing, and I quite enjoy the film itself as well.  Pretty dark subject matter.  It was pretty laughable how the titular character was able to hit the pituitary gland on all her victims without fail.  Even the guy who tried to mug her...she hit the gland from the front, while being choked!

yuppers. we were supposed to travel down to LA to meet her this summer, but I have to work and take my comprehensive exams. Hopefully we will get to visit her in the fall. During one of our first conversations, Flocky told me to look Collen Gray up on IMDB, he was all "she's my grandma" and then i was scrolling down and i saw she was the leech woman. I started screaming. He told her i was a fan and now she wants to meet me

unfortunatly, she doesn't have the pineal ring. I told flocky i wanted that for my engagement ring

As for me, I just watched The Violent Years for the first time in a long time, and that's an episode people don't mention much, but is one of the best.  Probably some of my favorite host segments, the short is one of the best, and it's just a really solid episode.

It Conquered the World: I don't really like this episode - Peter Graves does absolutely nothing in the movie apart from bitch and kill his wife, leaving the heroics to the women - and the riffing isn't great, however, the final skit is hilarious.  Where first the SOL listen to Graves' final speech in the movie, and then cuts to the Mads watching the same thing, utterly stunned by it.  Fantastic.

I actually laughed out loud when I read "Do the hustle" because I heard Crow's voice when I read it, a classic episode indeed, especially since Donald Pleasence of all people actually star in it.  I still have to say though that the ultimate MST3K is a tie between "Jack Frost" and "Sword and the Dragon", both are classic Russo-Finnish co-productions and both showcase Bill and Trace's great wit at riffing.

But from the show itself, when Servo is speaking as the dog meeting Jon Agar for the first time and he says "Riss off, Ruster." That kills me.

Superdome: My first KTMA episode, and though the picture quality was awful, I kinda enjoyed the whole thing.  It's pretty funny in places, though Josh's inability to keep Servo still annoyed the crap out of me.  Even if this would've been my first MST3k experience, I think I would've still checked it out.

I had a Memorial Day weekend double-feature of The Brute Man and Laserblast.

What, don't you like it?

The Brute Man is still as funny as ever. I've must have seen this 10 times by now. Laserblast was a bit more fun the second time around. The first time I'd seen 'blast, I had it built too high. I still feel it is the weakest of the 6 episodes of Season 7, but it still has its moments aside from its place in MST3K lore.

Creeper, creeper, creeper...you give me the CREEPS!

Just watched Kitten With A Whip for the first time.  The movie was so absurd in it's premise that I had a hard time getting into the riffing.  Not very many belly laughs for me, but I think this one will require a 2nd viewing to make sure I wasn't just dumbstruck by the film itself.

I did like the running joke where whenever Forsythe trusts Ann-Margret, they'd riff "Well, she's been straight with me so far..."

Parts: Clonus the Horror

Watching this nearly led to a drowning accident as I was just swallowing a drink of my beverage when Mike blurted out "I like mittens."  It's just a reminder to never attempt to ingest anything while watching MST3K in order to avoid chocking, drowning, unintentional spit-takes, and/or that uncomfortable sensation of having liquid coming out of your nose.  I really enjoyed this episode, and my only complaints are 1) the Biography riffs got stale after a while, and 2) I never want to see Mike in silver vinyl hot pants  and a matching midriff tank top ever again.  Ok, so that last thing wasn't really a complaint, just a reflection of the fact that I haven't been able to get that image out of my mind yet.  I've been trying to replace it with the image of Mike the space child in his little beanie, but that experiment keeps failing.

Favorite lines:
I like mittens.
Lena: Yeah, I like to write my thoughts and ideas.  Servo: I've already filled a Post-It-Note.

I had myself a double dose of MST3K yesterday:  The Sinister Urge and The Beatniks.  As a movie, The Sinister Urge is pretty bad, but in a fun way, just as I find the Ed Wood films I've seen so far to be.  I felt sorry for the actress wanna-be and her fate, so Ed elicited an actual emotional reaction from me, besides amusement.  Ed also amused me by slipping in a poster of his The Bride of the Monster, along side such quality films as The Violent Years and Jail Bait.  I loved Frank's diabolical scheme to blow-up Deep 13, and the guys playing detectives to find a way to stop him.  Mike scolding him:  "Frank, you stop your terrorist activities right now."

Favorite lines:
Crow: "He is serious - those are definitely pinking shears."
After guy gets shot - Crow (I think): "Oh, right in the sinister urge."
"I'm learning a lot about porn."
"The coffee table - bought with the souls of young girls."

So, Sinister Urge, "I toast your sleaziness," by giving this a grade A.


The Beatniks (featuring no actual Beatniks) is just bad.  Although I will say, at least Tony (fill in the blank, 'cause I've already forgotten the actor's name) had a nice singing voice.  The Sinister Urge might make into my top 20 favorite list, but not The Beatniks (Said list is a work in progress.)  However it does include one of my now favorite host segments - Joel abusing Crow and Sevro with "rock, paper, scissors" and Gypsy coming to their rescue.  "Gypsy crushes Joel!"  Ah, my love for Gyspy keeps getting affirmed.

Favorite lines:
"Beatnik music is really square."
"He's an evil Gilligan."
"Isn't that interesting.  He took 10% out of the agent."
And, of course, "Gypsy crushes Joel!  My babies!"

Beatniks gets a B-.

I found out the movie was filmed in Huntington, West Virginia. My grandmother lives near there between Huntington and Point Pleasant. I did a double take at the credits when I saw that.

"Manos" The Hands of Fate   - "That's not how you wear your Depends, Torgo."

Hired! Part 2 has become one of my favorite shorts - the old guy putting his hankerchief on his head cracked me up - so random and inane.  The riffs during the movies are fun, though I have a feeling that a lot of times, the guys decided that some points of the movie itself are so unintentionally funny that they let those parts ride on their own.

I think the best parts of the episode are the host segments, especially Joel and the 'bots coming up with their own monsters with exaggerated body parts - "I'd have one really big flared nostril.  And inside there'd be lots of red, matted hair."  Plus, the DVD has the Poopie Real - sweet!

Last night I watched one of my favorite episodes, "The Dead Talk Back".

While watching it I noticed that the "actor" playing the detective looked and sounded EXACTLY like Bill Kurtis (host of many shows like "American Justice").    Sadly, I looked it up on IMDB and it was not him.

Operation Double 007
Ah, you have GOT to love the Italian spy movies of the 60's.    They sure cranked them out.

I think the producers were confused if they wanted to pretend that they were a Bond movie or not.   They had the "shirley bassie-like" shrill theme song (that the boys really riffed on), the babes, the gadgets, etc.    They even had the lady who played MoneyPenny, some of the other british guys, the main bond villian, and Connery's brother Neil. 

I found it weird that they called him "the brother of our best agent", but when they called him by name, they called him Neil Connery.    Why not Neil Bond?    They also made reference to Ian Flemming books which was odd as well.

I loved how they dubbed Neil's voice (in the generic Hercules manner).   He must have one thick Scottish accent.

I just finished watching "King Dinosaur". Ok riffing, a little slower because it was the early seasons. I'm thinking of staying away from more of the early few seasons from now on. Their just not as funny. And I don't care what ANYONE says, Joel isn't funny in the sketches. The Joey the Lemer song was painful to watch.

Does anybody know of some episodes in the first two seasons that are really good? I hate to dismiss them so easily.

Now come on Mike, Heratio Sans could not possible eat that much, no human being could.

Kevin, Traumactin is not a drug, it isn't real, why are you talking about a drug that isn't real?

Finished up I Accuse My Parents. This was one I've been meaning to watch for a while, since it's always one of the first to come up whenever I do an episode search on Netflix or at my local library. It was a bit hit-and-miss for a while, but towards the end it finally hit stride and finished quite strong. And all the little breaks were terrific, from the Mads accidentally cooking the stripper into the cake to the dance sequence to the Bots and Joel exploring main character Jim's psyche. So, overall a decent episode, but one that takes some patience to get to the really good stuff.

I just watched Phase IV from the KTMA season for the first time and I really enjoyed it.  I have all the KTMA episodes that are available but I have been avoiding them in favor of watching season 1-10 eps.  I thought Josh was quick and witty as Servo-I can't believe he was only 17-18 years old at the time.  I don't want to tell you what I was doing at 17-18 years old.  Definitely not "starring" on a cult TV classic.

I prefer Mike as host, but I've really grown to appreciate Joel.  I love how Joel uses sight gags in relation to the movie.  I don't really recall Mike doing that much during the SciFi years, although I could be mistaken.

Just started watching "The Painted Hills".

I'm re-watching Season 5 to see if Joel had left clues that he would be handing over the helm to Mike. Aside from Mitchell, there didn't seem to be any.

It's probably been covered by Kevin or Mike in any number of books, but I imagine it must have been a challenge to the writers...IE: "Do we want to interrupt the flow of MST:3K and hint to the viewers that Joel may be leaving and maybe soften the blow for faithful viewers who grew to love Joel? ('maybe' being the big keyword here) Or should we put Mike in, following the spirit of the show, not to drag it on and hope that the viewers will understand?"

Saw Time Chasers yesterday. Amazing riff. If it weren't for MST3K picking this up, it may have been up there with Manos and Ben and Arthur.

I actually read on Wikipedia that the cast and crew of the film actually had a reunion party just for this MST3K episode. Nice to see people being happy with their own movies getting riffed.

Its also well known that some of the cast members walked out of the party, because they didn't understand that they were going to get made fun of. So they got upset and left.

Thought I would give this another try in honor of Tor Johnson's birthday two days ago.This one doesn't improve much with age. It starts off strong but peters out pretty quick. There simply isn't that much for them to riff on, except for Tor of course. All of his scenes are the highlight.  Unfortunately, he's not in it nearly enough. If he had been, this one might have had potential.

From the 20th Anniversary pack.  Werewolf.  I had never seen this one before. Actually I've never seen any of the ones in the pack.

Wow.

What an awful, awful movie and terrific riff.  I mean, wow.  Wow.

Wow, it's bad.  Bad like stink.  Bad like a bad cup filled to the bad rim with the bad milk of bad human unkindness.  Too bad they had to edit out the no-doubt fake Hungarian boobies that were destined to spring free though, that would have helped.

A bit.

With the badness.  Or not.  Because it was pretty bad.  Even though it had that guy in it.

But it was the first new MST I've seen since I bought the Crawling Hand DVD with some others when Shout! got the license.

So even though it was bad, it was so, so good.

Werewolf is definitely the best of the four episodes on that set. Classic MST3K. Believe it or not, I'm pretty sure I watched Werewolf on VHS years ago before I saw it as an MST3K episode.
If you haven't seen any of the other episodes yet, a warning. As bad as that movie is, Future War is significantly worse. It's amateur filmaking of the worst kind.

I understand why so many pick this as one of their least favorite.  Even unwatchable messes like Wild World of Batwoman and Monster A-go-go have enough truly bizarre moments to pique your interest for at least a few moments at a time. This film doesn't even have that luxury.  The riffing is good enough, however, that I am still able to enjoy it, provided I only watch about 30 minutes at a time. And even 30 minutes in a row is pushing it with this movie.

Yeah, Hamlet definitely works better if you have a buddy, some cigars and rum, and a couple of weekends in which to take it.  Then it's a hoot.

Now, I just tried my first iRiff last night.  Speed.  I liked it.  A lot.  I noticed during the big, beefy credits that there was a Mark Mancina that got music credit.  I noticed because the last name is close to mine and that's the kind of thing that catches your eye.

So I did the iRiff, logged on to the forum to give a very positive review, and still had some cigar left.  So I figured I'd do a few minutes of an MST to take me down the long slope.  Space Mutiny is always good for a laugh, especially the first half, so in it went.  And as I settled back, and the credits unpixellated on the screen and Mike & the Bots did their thing, a name coalesced on the screen.

You guessed it - Mark Mancina.

He did the music for Speed AND Space Mutiny.  A little riffing coincidence that I thought I should share with the group.

Well, Technically I didn't say it was one of MY least favoirtes. Due to the incredibly tedious nature of the film I understand why many others feel this way. As I said, I was able to enjoy it in 30 minute increments due to the solid riffing. And while it will never be one of my favorites I would still choose it over anything from season one. Over the last few years I've learned to finally appreciate seasons 2 and 3 much more than I used to but I still can't seem to warm to season one. It just seems like such a work in progress compared to the rest of the series.  Have never seen the KTMAS and have no desire to.

Sort of off-topic, but it may be worthwhile before it's too late for someone. 

The only real reason to watch all of the KTMA episodes would be to "witness the evolution of the show" or something alog those lines.  The problem is that many of the episodes do not have all three riffers (Joel, Josh, and Trace), because someone is missing for personal or job-related reasons.  The run is very disjointed, and you end up wasting a lot of time with the early episodes (all Sandy Frank, all redone).  I finally saw them all, but I owned a copy of Mighty Jack for about four years before I tackled it, just for example. 

There are a handful of really good KTMA episodes that are worth seeing:
1.  SST: Death Flight
2.  Superdome
3.  City on Fire
4.  The Million Eyes of Su-Muru
5.  The Last Race

SST and Superdome are about as good as a typical Season 1 episode.  They are two of the most riffable movies they've ever done.  I wish Cinematic Titanic would re-do those instead of Santa Claus Conquers the Martians

Hangar 18 and Phase IV are "alright."  You could certainly do a lot worse. 

People may have different tastes, but you would probably get about 5-7 answers from just about anyone who has seen them all.  I would be very surprised if anyone claimed to have liked them all well enough to recommend buying them all. 

EDIT:  I should probably point out that some of this is actually objective, not subjective.  You'll notice I didn't list a "redone" film.  Trust me, almost all of the funny lines or ideas from the KTMA eps get recycled in the Comedy Central versions.  Also, there are some really long periods of silence in some of the other KTMA eps that I didn't recommend.

Human Duplicators

I  had my monthly  MST meet-up last night and we watched this episode.  It was basically a hit and enjoyed by all, however some of the riffs were extremely dated and flew over the heads of the younger folks. I've always found this to be more of an issue with the Joel episodes.  After the episode we watched some rifftrax shorts and the younger people in the group seemed to appreciate those a little more.

Stranded in Space

Only my second time watching this.  I won't go as far as to say this tv pilot for a series that never happened was a good film. I will admit,however,  that I found the premise interesting and think it might've made an interesting series. And I thought Glenn Corbett did a decent job in the lead.

As an MST episode, it's okay.  Some good riffing. Nothing special but perhaps worth a little more attention than it gets.

I reintroduced several people with a vague recollection of the show by subjecting them to Werewolf. I'm amazed I could survive watching it twice in the same week myself. It also served as a training session for a pottential riffing partner of mine. We thought we were on a roll the first time through our chosen film but the 2nd effort was mostly pitiful and a dry run of another movie sputtered out quickly. (turns out bad 70's horror can actually be upsetting for some) Anyway, I thought he needed to see what I consider the riffing all-star team in their prime.

Back on the episode, it never ceases to amaze me how you can always run into a joke you didn't notice the first two dozen times you watched any given episode, even if you watch it twice in a row.

"I forget, am I Ving Rhames?"

So... As I'm afraid some of the dvd sets may be going out of print soon, I'm trying to accelerate my purchases and catch up on the volumes, I've got about half so far. Thing is... well how about Godzilla vs. Megalon, right? Volume 10.2 . I see it selling for like two hundred used . Then I remembered... didn't I see that on Netflix once? I checked Netflix and sure enough, they have it. Incredible. If it was recalled, I wonder how Netflix kept it. So I rented it. And now I'm thinking... sure I could make a copy. I mean, I can't buy it, so I don't consider it wrong. But then again... how much would netflix charge me if I "lost" it. hehe. Or maybe it got "lost" in the mail, right?

Nah, guess I'll do the right thing and return it so fellow MSTies can rent it!

The Castle of Fu Manchu - one of the best.  I don't care what anyone says.

Starts out with the great SOL song.  God-awful movie.  I'm all for people who want to employ the blind - but not as cinematographers.

And there are more great jokes just in that one scene of Nayland Smith and Petrie on their fishing trip than in any KTMA and a couple of Sci-Fi's.

Smith: "Liner Sinks! Thousands Drown!"
Petrie: Where?
Crow: In the water!

Smith (to guy on bicycle): What brings you here?
Crow: My bicycle!

(Guy hands Smith a note)
Servo (singing): Duh-duh-duh-duh-duh....Harry and the kids are dead..Harry and the kids...

Smith (to guy on bicycle): Thanks for coming
Joel: Well, I didn't mean to but the new seat on the bicycle....
Servo: Joel!!!  No, no!!!

(Petrie waving his sandwich around)
Crow: Don't wave your little Sizzler at me, Dad.

And that's just in a few minutes!!!!!  Don't understand why people rag on this episode at all.

The Beast of Yucca Flats, my all time favorite MST episode.  The film that cast Tor Johnson as a renown scientist. This film manages to be even drearier and more pointless than Red Zone Cuba and Skydivers.  Coleman really tries to be artsy here with bizarre shots of bunnies smelling corpses and such. Each character in the film is more depressing than the next. And like the other two films, there doesn't really  seem to be a story anywhere. Coleman seemed less interested in plot and more interested in convincing you to take your own life.

I love when they riff on these british films. As far as the british episodes go, I'd rank this better than Gorgo and Deadly Bees but not as good as Devil Doll. It always cracks me up to see how many of these 'mad scientist turns himself into a monster and then gets killed at the end' films they made. Who exactly decided that people couldn't get enough of this kind of plot?  And it also seems to be some kind of unwritten rule that the worse the movie, the more depressing the ending needs to be.  Perhaps they were banking on the fact that if you're depressed at the end then you won't notice how horrid the film is? I just have to wonder.

I'd expect Cinematic Titanic fans to have seen all the MST3K episodes more so than Rifftrax fans. CT seems like it was made specifically for that audience. Rifftrax seems like it's got a different sort of audience sometimes, just based on the fact that so many of the "bad" movie titles don't sell as well as the "good" ones.

I was really shocked to learn that the majority of posters here have not seen all of the MST3K episodes.  I always assumed that there was a perfect tautology/correlation between dedicated Rifftrax fans and dedicated MST3K fans.  This does explain a few things, of course. 

I'd expect Cinematic Titanic fans to have seen all the MST3K episodes more so than Rifftrax fans. CT seems like it was made specifically for that audience. Rifftrax seems like it's got a different sort of audience sometimes, just based on the fact that so many of the "bad" movie titles don't sell as well as the "good" ones.

I think you are correct.  Also, the Mike, Kevin, and Bill line-up obviously appeals more to people that discovered the show in the Sci-Fi era.

Just as a note though...I think most folks who post in this thread are 're-watching' the episodes the write about...at least I know I am.

But it is weird to think that some folks haven't seen all of the eps yet.

DVDs of all of the episodes not released on Rhino or Shout! for $7.00 each.  There are other retailers, but I can personally recommend this one.  I met this guy by trading tapes about twelve years ago.

Lazerblast

This could have been an Ok movie if it had been about a guy fighting aliens and killing people in a town instead of a dozen sub plots that went nowhere.

Still this is one of the funniest episodes ever.  I loved Mike as Captain Janeway. 

Did Lennard Maltin really give this movie two and a half stars?

Part the Clonus Horror.

This was an ok 70s sci-movie,it's still very riffible but unlike most movies on MST3k the plot made pretty good sense and it was well shot,good to see the writer was such a good sport.

They were reading directly out of the Leonard Maltin Movie Guide that came out that year. Either he gave it 2 and a half stars or someone involved in his book did. I'm glad the writer for Clonus was a good sport about it as well. Wish I could say the same for guys like Ray Dennis Steckler.

Wow, this one is HORRIBLE. This was a movie that should have gone straight to trash barrel. It wasn't even good enough to go straight to video. Well as in, bad movie, the riffing on it was classic though.

"Hey look at the horse, I bet he made that too..."

"Look at her, she already has a plate!"

Then of course the ending..

I too just watched Lazerblast for the first time. Holy moley, what were those "filmmakers" (to use the term liberally) thinking? And why did Roddy McDowell lower himself (much like Jack Palance in Angel's Revenge)? And why did Keenan Wynn? What I cannot help wondering is just where the chest coin comes from, why the gun turns him into a monster, why the aliens left the gun on Earth if they keep having to come down and kill whoever uses it, why the idiot girl sleeps with him if he's such a loser, and so many other questions concerning the "plot", such as it is, that it makes my head spin. But the riffing was hilarious, as usual. "He said he'd kill you next time you set foot on the place." "Finally we have someone to root for!"

I also recently re-watched one of my favorite shorts, "A Date With Your Family." "He won't spend a lot of time on the phone either--he's mute!" Who knows why they made so many educational films in the '50s about such random things!

I had to sit in a car for 17 hours straight twice this week visiting family so I had myself an epic MST3K Christmas Marathon featuring several classics and a few I had never seen before: (got a stack of DVD sets for christmas  :highfive: )

Girl in Gold Boots
Time Chasers
Boggy Creek II
The Skydivers
Catalina Caper
Hobgoblins
The Phantom Planet
Eegah
Monster A-Go Go

Today I watched Mitchell and was pleasantly surprised by the opening riffs: "Eegah... shtemlow. Watch out for snakes!" I love when they reference themselves.

Anyway, yes I did snap several times during the trip. I had to stop a couple of times to ask myself why I wanted to watch Hobgoblins.  :gouge:  Monster A-Go Go also lived up to its legendary status, the warning labels that decorate the disc ought not to be ignored. I think Manos was actually a much better movie.

I'll agree with that.  It's almost unbearably bad -- thank God for the MST3k crew. 

I saw Future War for the first time the other day.  I thought it was hilarious, and clearly shows that the Sci-Fi era was perhaps the most polished, funniest version of MST3k.

I had to take some breaks during the course of it but I finally got through my arch nemesis: 1009 Hamlet

I used to get up every Saturday morning no matter how late I went to bed in order to get my fix. Normally, I can stay awake through anything, I have never fallen asleep during a movie or tv show. That is, with the exception of Hamlet. Every time it came on I tried and every time I failed. As I popped in the DVD, I came to realise that I almost had the opening segment memorised, that implies countless failed attempts throughout my childhood. Thanks to my new DVD, I conquered this movie at long last.

Hamlet: "To die, to sleep"
Servo: "To SLEEEEEP!"
Crow: "There's an old chestnut."

Victory is sweet.

817 - The Horror of Party Beach

A pretty solid episode. While the host sketches revolve around the Anicent Rome story arc that never did much for me, the movie riffing can be very impressive. This will probably never go down as an alltime MST3K classic, but it definitely has it's moments and I find myself revisiting it regularly. Over certain small stretches, the riffing here is as funny as anything that they've ever done... Unfortunately, the movie rarely serves up consistent fodder and things aren't as impressive when the movie isn't cooperating. There were a few 30-60 second stretches in Horror of Party Beach that had me laughing as hard as any other MST / Rifftrax product ever has... and at the end of the day these are the stretches you remember. The fact the there were some duldrums mixed in doesn't ruin the overall good vibe. Highly recommended.  B+

Frank's final words are great too. I'd seen his ascent to 2nd banana heaven but never the final scene. It's an all-around great episode with an imported Mexican movie with a hero so ridiculous, I think it might have entertained me on its own.

311- It Conquered The World

I've had all of the MST3K episodes from Season 1 onward (plus a smattering of the KTMA's) for many years now.  But there are still a few episodes that I never got around to watching.  This was one of them.  So in a way, I got to watch a new episode of MST3K today.  This one was a lot of fun.  It always helps when the movie is at least a bit interesting, as this one was.  Sometimes an episode can be a real chore to get through in one sitting due to the movie being riffed.

And the short was really good too.  Has Snow Thrills ever shown up on any of the Shorts compilations?  Cause I really don't recall seeing that one, and I've watched all of the various Shorts compilations.

It Conquered the World is one of my faves.  It takes itself just seriously enough to be prime Mistiebaliciousness.  And I can't get enough of the Peter Graves stuff. 

(phone rings, Peter's character picks up) Crow:  "Umm, Gunsmoke?  It'll never work, call my brother."

After 20 minutes of solid Arness/Graves slamming, this line always sets me off.

For me, I popped in my tape of Village of the Giants last night, got about 20 minutes in before sleepytime.  I haven't seen this one in a long time, and I sense some Deep Hurting on the way.  Scarily, the tape didn't "read" for a bit, needed some fiddling.  My poor, poor VHS tapes from 1995....

I remember reading on here that some people didn't like it because it was a comedy. I thought it was hilarious.

I loved Catalina Caper too.  One of my faves because it is horribly unfunny movie trying to be funny.

Saw the bumbling insurance agent on an old episode of The Match Game.  Just as unfunny on there too.
I do like this one,too. Very good riffing. But I think the "don't riff a comedy" does hold, it's just the few they managed to do were the exceptions. Not all of them have Little Richard hopped up on goofballs. And the private detective "comedy relief" looks like an answer to a prayer by the Best Brains.

I finished K-15 Superdome this (yesterday?) morning in honor of the Super Bowl and I must say I feel Servo's pain.

"Who won? WHO WON?!?!"

Cave Dwellers.  The girl in that is kinda hot, and by her imdb credits, it looks like she went into the Video Game business animating cut-scenes for some pretty big games.  Miles O'Keeffe is too skinny to be a proper barbarian, and his hair looks more feminine than the girl's.  Even funnier is the mincing of the bad guy, beautifully ripped apart by the guys.

Watched Soultaker again. Gets funnier every time. What kind of sick chick writes in a screenplay for herself, "I strip while my mom watches me" is beyond me. Still love "WHO ARE YOU?" and "Zep is never wrong, man!! Is Sabbath wrong too, man?"

I was very happy to find out today that Soultaker is coming out on DVD Feb 3!! I can't wait!

Yeah, I loved Soultaker. The episode, not the.. never mind.

Isn't that the one where Crow is so excited to see nudity during the shower scene but had trouble with his contacts? That whole run is hysterical. Especially Tom and Crow's bickering like two kid siblings after Crow gets back. "I saw a lot! I saw EVERYTHING!"

Yes, oh yes. Why would a girl write for HERSELF to do: "I strip as my mom watched me with lustful eyes." IIIICCCCKKKKK!!!!! That's why I love the line: "Is there a name for Moms little illness here?"

Wild World of Batwoman.  A teriffic episode, with an entertaining short and a ridiculous little movie that's funny on its own, let alone with the guy's tearing it to shreds (it also features some incredibly attractive women).  I love Tom's breakdown at the end, where he screams "END! ENDDD!", although they didn't seem to notice that during the beach party scene, a guy in the background gives the camera the finger.  :)

One of my top ten faves!

I remeber when I saw this movie on the Sci-Fi channel.  My mom was a fan of MST (not as big as me) and actually enjoyed the movie without the riffing.  She found it in the video store and watched it.  At the time I wasn't interested in seeing the movies unriifed.  Am now.

Final Justice.  I don't think the movie's that terrible really.  I loved the riff - I think season 10 might be my favourite now - and the host segments were awesome.  It's also pretty cool to see that Greydon Clarke has the perfect attitude towards MST3k - some of the jokes might hurt a little, but as long as it gets people to see his movie, he's cool with it.
Title: Re: I Just Finished Watching...

Had an MST3K party at my place Saturday night for a friend's birthday.  I didn't get to actually watch much because I was busy running around cooking and making sure everyone was sufficiently fed and drinked-up, but we got in 2 new ones for me as b-day gal brought some of her new Castle Forrester fare.

First were a few of my favorite shorts - the ones included as bonus features with the Rhino Killer Shrews disk.  It actually took me a while to figure out I had new shorts (hey now!), I kinda stumbled on them about a year after I bought the set. Anyway, they are great - the 21st Century Calling one is one of my faves.

Then we ate (my Olive Garden Pasta Fagioli recipe which is usually a big hit), and we put in The Screaming Skull.  I liked it.  I liked it a lot, considering it's 90 minutes of absolutely nothing happening very slowly.  Surprisingly we didn't even shed anyone during the intermission before we followed up with Squirm.  I missed a lot of this one doing some post-food cleanup, but what I saw, I liked. 

Two plus shorts ended up being enough for most everyone, so b-day gal crashed in the guest room and everyone else split, and me and a buddy fired up a couple of heavy maduro cigars (Partagas Black Gigantes) and the RIfftrax of The Matrix while we partook of spirits and light conversation.

So that was a LOT of riffing, and all of it good.

And b-day gal left her small selection of Castle Forrester's at my place, so I have anohter couple of new ones to watch later this week.

count me in, too!

Last night I watched Hobgoblins and Werewolf, I mean warwoof.
Hobgoblins cracks me up. Bad writing (nothing like a child endangerment joke), bad acting (like that overacting extra there!), bad cinematography (yes, Rick Sloane pioneered the Stand In a Straight Line in Front of a Trouble Light shot) and editing (he just knocked over his own table! he just did it again! and again!), bad costumes (it's a preying mantis in a party dress), bad monsters (worst that'll happen is one of the plastic eyes will fall out and he'll choke on it), and not even a good message (one thing I learned is that daphne was a slut and amy wasn't fun til she became a slut!). One of my favorite episodes.
Werewolf cracks me up--only my maybe 4th time seeing it and I love it more every time. The stupid surprise ending is so predictable and yet I don't know how she became a werewolf. And where the heck is she from? "I is home, Pol"

Plus, Yuri, the Russo-Mexican psychotic.

I still want to see Wurwolf uncut.

My last watched was 423 - Bride of the Monster.

Where is that "we must increase our bust" line from?

I don't know if it originated from this movie but I know for sure that it's a line used in New York's Finest (1987) (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0093613/) when the hookers were all trying to increase their bust size doing exercises chanting "We must! We must! We must increase our bust!" I havent seen the movie in about 13 years but when ever I hear that chant thats the movie that pops in my head. it was also in Private School (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0086143/quotes) and I believe it was in Grease (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0077631/) as well

Soultaker.  God, I love Bill's Crow.  Season 10 has been gold from start to finish, and the appearances of Joel and Frank were a little surreal.  It also proved to me that Mike is a better skits guy than Joel, and Frank only really works with Clayton Forrester.  The interview with Joe Estevez is kinda cute, and he seems like a nice guy.
Title: Re: I Just Finished Watching...
Post by: mrbasehart on February 26, 2009, 07:41:13 PM
Heh.  I fully agree with Mike in that in the Sci-Fi seasons, they'd got the riffing down to a fine art.  They're easily my favourite years and though some of the skits for the time-travelling saga aren't the best, when Bobo and Brain Guy were set as the sidekicks, it got real funny, real fast.

yes it was warwulf.
I agree with the fact that the mike-kevin-bill era was the best. according to an interview the channel made them have a story arc, so that's why they have those silly time travelling skits in between. so I can't blame them for their quality--they were forced into it. but some of my favorite skits are from that era like "When Loving Lovers Love" and "Where oh Werewolf"

I watched Final Justice for the second time. They're always funnnier the 2nd time. So funny. "Go ahead on." If I hear that phrase ONE more time.......

Watched two more of the pile left over from the festivities from a couple of weekends ago, last of the "never seen 'em"s in the pile.

Experiment 0703 - Deathstalker And The Warriors From Hell:

Wow.  Somebody saw Beastmaster and thought "I need to make a movie just like that, but cheaper, and with less-attractive people."  I kept forgetting to check the interwebs, but isn't the bald bad guy wizard guy the same guy that played the hawk guy in the second season of Buck Rogers in the 25th Century?  Horrible movie, but I laughed a lot.

Experiment 0021 - The Legend Of The Dinosaurs:

I've been warned about the KTMA stuff, both by Pak & Tyrant's Quest here and by a buddy who's a higher-level MST geek than I am, so I think I started out right, seeing the final one of the season.  Other than the sets and the bots of course, it seemed very much like a Season 1 or 2 episode - lots of riffing, and lots of funny, but rather more slapping around of wet-suited Japanese gals than their normal fare.  Joel apparently even hoofs a line at one point and that cracks 'em up for a while, but I didn't notice what the actual mistake must have been.

I know I'm 20 years late but, good show, lads, good show.  Glad you'll be back for another season.

I've had trouble watching the KTMAs too.  I think I would've liked the show if it'd just been like that, but seeing how far it came after only a couple of seasons, it's tough to go back.  The only ones I really plan to watch in the near future are the movies that MST3k proper never took on.

I usually keep my mouth shut because it seems to be contrary to practically everybody elses opinion, but I always preferred the sci-fi era host segments. I thought Mary Jo, Bill, and Kevin were all funny and had good chemistry together. I even kind of liked the time-traveling skits. I have to be in the right mood for host segments anyway.  Very often I fast forward past them (for me it's all about the riffing) but I find myself quicker on the fast forward button during the comedy central host segments. I never really got the whole Forrester-Frank thing. And the whole invention exchange nonsense went on too long. The sci-fi host segments felt like real attempts at skits while the Dr.Forrester-Frank stuff felt like things they were doing for their own amusement.
Title: Re: I Just Finished Watching...
Post by: mrbasehart on March 10, 2009, 08:26:05 PM
I mostly agree.  I mean I've never skipped the skits, primarily because they break the awful, awful movies that they do into manageable pieces.  :)  I do love Frank though.  The guy just makes me laugh all the damned time.  Dr Forrester I could take or leave though, and his role in the 1st and 7th season are pretty lame. 
Title: Re: I Just Finished Watching...
Post by: THE QUEEN!!! on March 11, 2009, 02:14:51 PM
I'd have to say I skip most of the skits most of the time, and of the ones I don't skip it's pretty even whose I watch--the joel skits, mike/forrester/frank skits or the mike/pearl/brain guy skits. It's more that some episodes had better ideas that translated into skits, rather than that at one point in the series they either lost or gained more ideas.

Space Travelers.

I...didn't like it.  Firstly, Marooned is actually a pretty decent movie.  Ripping 40 minutes from its running time is going to play havoc with movie, so destroying it and then calling it bad seems somehow wrong to me.  I thought some of the Gene Hackman jokes were pretty funny, but as the movie went on, I wanted more and more the guys to just shut up so I could watch the movie.  Trace has a pretty good Gregory Peck impression though.

Well, I've said it before and I'll probably say it again, but the riffing of a movie completely breaks any of the tension or atmosphere that the movies tries to build.  It's happened in Halloween, Carnival of Souls, even the Grudge, where horror movies just aren't scary because the riffing robs them of the immersion needed to scare a viewer.  I think it's the same with Marooned, because it's quite contemplative and slow.

I too, thought this film was ponderous. Perhaps it is better unedited (apparently the original runs over two hours and with MST we only saw about 70 minutes of it) but from what I saw on MST it was more than worthy of riffing.   This is one of those many episodes that I did not care for on first viewing but has grown on me in a positive way.  I quite enjoy it now.  It's also fun to see them riffing on old big name stars like Peck and Hackman. The bit where the guy comes out of the spaceship and servo starts singing is one of my all time favorite MST moments.

"Night of the Blood Beast" - Seriously, this has to be one of the most underrated eps.  It's during the rare window of Mike and the Mads.... and it's a Roger Corman movie.  That combo alone makes it awesome.  The fact that it's hilarious helps.  I love this ep.  And the "reunion" bits in between are some that I actually don't skip over.  Bridgette Jones/Nelson as Mr. B Natural.  That's great.  Haha.

Starforce  Fugtive Alien ll

This film actually makes less sense than the first one, if that's possible. It also made me laugh more than the first one, at least this time around. Both are fun season three episodes.  I enjoy watching an early Joel episode after I've gone long stretches with Rifftrax or late era MST3k.  For a long time I alternated, doing one Mike and one Joel.  Now I just settle for a Joel every now and then to mix things up.

One of those movies that sits on your head and crushes it. After a few viewings however, the film doesn't crush as much and the solid riffing shines. Especially all the riffs on the dog and the british publisher guy. I love when they riff on the british.  The scenes with the guy hypnotizing the dog are up there with my favorite MST moments.

SOULTAKER! I love that one to pieces. Its one of those whose basic idea isn't a bad one, but they should have thought through it. I love all of those names for him; "leak taker" "bus taker" etc

Joe Estevez: What time?
Robert Z'Dar: 9:00
Tom Servo: Oh I can't.  Gonna be a lunchtaker at that time.

The scene where Crow had to leave the theater to go searching for his Visine was hilarious.  Gets me every time.

Best part of that scene is when Crow comes back and it's perfectly timed. "WHAT?!?!? A ROBE?!?!?!" Then Servo says, "I saw a lot. I saw everything!" "Shut up, Servo!!!!" that cracks me up.

A little moment in that one that cracks me up is when Joe Estevez catches the cheesy '80s guy trying to put the soul back in the chick and starts to chase him down the hallway but stops after a few steps and gives him a nasty look. "Get outa here! Damn kids nosing around my souls!"

Last night I watched RIDING WITH DEATH for the 900000th time. LOOOVE that movie. It's so icky gooey 70s and hastily thrown together--you can tell when they ADRed some dialogue to piece the two "episodes" together, like "how about getting out of this with me?" and "I hear you grew quite a moustache while I was away". My favorite line is "Go get 'em sam! give it the old college try!" WHO on earth under the age of 80 says that?!?! my other favorite line is "you're as elusive as robert denby"--took me 10 showings to figure out who robert denby was, but i still don't see why he's illusive. we say that a lot around my place, "you're as illusive as robert denby"--especially to the cats.

MITCHELL!!

My god!, I can't believe it's been over three years since I've seen this!  Absence makes the heart grow fonder. Almost as enjoyable as the first time I watched it.  I don't know why, but the all the jokes on this poor guy never seem to get old. I have a friend who I tried to get into MST for years. It never took. The only episode he absolutely loved, however, was this one. There's just something special about it.  I'll have to pull out Final Justice soon. Haven't watched the new DVD version yet.

But the individual rifftrax threads seem to be pretty much ignored after the riff becomes a couple weeks old. It's always more fun to post my comments of individual rifftrax on the MST discussion board because they have a 'I Just finished watching' thread that is always active.   

I agree with Bratpop (for once).  We should have a thread like this for Rifftrax.

Well - if I understand what they were trying to do - the Yosemite Sam guy only helped Rowsdower find Troy.  Troy was being held on the cult's "altar" so when they killed what's his face by shooting him, he became the sacrifice Yosemite Sam guy told them was necessary to make the holy city rise again.

Why it went up in the air and it not becoming a major international incident?  That I can't answer.

Funny episode.  Never a favorite, although I know it's very popular.  I think it's because the silly ass movie is still fairly watchable and becomes the main attraction rather than the riffing itself. Riffing is good though.

DEATHSTALKER---the music is so bad, the bad accents, the 80s/90s hair (not sure when this movie was made), the princess's figure skating outfit, and of course "Potatoes are what we eat!"

ACADEMY OF ROBOTS CHOICE AWARDS---so funny and brilliant, and one of the best episodes there is. "yes, rather than pulling themselves up by their bootstraps, poor people fritter their time away dancing!"

Very good riffing. I particularly liked "Think anybody at the Rockefeller Foundation questioned the dynamite line item?".

For me, the funniest thing in this whole episode is the Planet of the Apes set looking like a cheesy zoo exhibit. That just kills me every time. Too bad they spent so little time in it.

Yeah i love the fact that Tom has to keep telling Crow to say yes to his questions.

I just finished Mad Monster.

Is this one from the preCC days because I noticed Tom isn't voiced by Kevin
I thought they could only put CC and Sci Fi episodes out on DvD.
If they can release ones from the first season now I will be a very happy camper.

It's a very funny episode.

Strangely I think they gave Tom all the good lines for some reason.

Mad Monster is a CC episode. The third episode of the first season. Kevin didn't join the series until season two. Crow's voice was originally Josh Weinstein, who is currently working with Joel and company on Cinematic Titanic.

I watched Mad Monster recently.  Unfortunately,  no matter how many times I try (and I try about once or twice a year) I just can't seem to enjoy season one very much. The riffing is just so sparse and rough compared to the rest of the series. Seasons 2-10 I can watch over and over but season one sits hard on my head.

I agree with everything Dangfish said except the detail police in me forces me to point out that you meant to say Josh is Tom, not Crow.

I watched Robot Holocaust last week.  What I like about this one is that it is the first episode I ever really watched any part of. 

Way back when it aired on Comedy Central in the summer of 1991 (or maybe 1990, I can't recall).  It was a balmy summer morning.  I went out with my mom and dad and our dog Spot on a big long walk.  When we got home, my brothers were watching the tail end of Robot Holocaust, the part where the guy who invented the breathing apparatus gets encased in that vegetable pod thing by the master of the robots.

I didn't like MST3K in those days, and as you can tell I only saw the last 10 minutes or so, but I remembered that scene (and Joel's contest to name the guy) for years.  It wasn't until 2007 that I found out the name of that episode and just last week that I found and watched the full episode.

Danger: Diabolik

Great episode. What a classy way to go out.

Why does anyone do anything Ginco (the detective) tells them? He does nothing but screw up and come up with astonishingly stupid plans.

Does anyone else think this feels like three TV episodes tied together? The middle section with the emeralds has Valmont introduced and then dispached before the beginning of the Gold Bar section. It reminds me of the Master Ninja movies.
Title: Re: I Just Finished Watching...
Post by: dangfish on May 16, 2009, 11:59:52 AM
I absolutely love both Bloodwaters of Dr. Z and Diabolik.  Diabolik was a great finale and I loved the fact that they used a slightly different but sort of goofy/fun film for the last episode rather than a traditional bad horror/sci-fi thing.   For me, it made it more special. Plus, the film was extremely riffable. 

As far as Bloodwaters, the first few minutes of that movie are possibly my favorite in the whole series. The combination of their riffing with the film's ultra wacko narration and visuals here makes for MST perfection. The whole episode doesn't quite reach these early heights but it is still a great episode and one of their best movie choices ever.

I was watching I Spy last night (the 1960s TV show, not the evil movie) and I recognized a chick in one of the episodes. Took me a while to place her, then suddenly I realized who she was, and cross checked her name in the credits with what I thought she was from. And I was right. She was the title character in Terror from the Year 5000! I thought that was weird---it's weird to see MST people in regular things, good things, esp. when they do good acting (as in this case).

anyway, last night I was Monster a Go Go for the first time. A few hilarious quips, but overall the movie was sooooooo bad it was too painful to watch. "This is a test. Had this been an actual film, you would have been entertained."

She was the title character in Terror from the Year 5000! I thought that was weird---it's weird to see MST people in regular things, good things, esp. when they do good acting (as in this case).
I saw grandma daughter in The Prize Fighter with Don Knotts and Tm Conway. It was 9 years before Space Mutiny and she looked pretty good.

anyway, last night I was Monster a Go Go for the first time. A few hilarious quips, but overall the movie was sooooooo bad it was too painful to watch. "This is a test. Had this been an actual film, you would have been entertained."
Very bad movie.  My favorite riff was "Look, if you can't out act the post...!"

THAT is scary!!! "We're about the same age!" I still can't handle seeing Donald Pleasance in The Great Escape---even though of course he does a good job--because I can't help thinking "The pyumaman!" and I say "IT's an egg!!! Oh, it's Donald."

The funny thing about I Spy is that the very next episode had Peter Lawford---of course I've seen him in a LOT of old movies, but the first thing I thought of was "Angel's Revenge".  "If you want me up this early you gotta expect me to drink!" (I was never a pete fan)

Hey, at least grandma daughter (Cisse Cameron) was smart/kind enough to stop acting after Space Mutiny. (I think in The Deli she's just a cameo)

Funny you mention I Spy. I  remember enjoying the show in reruns when I was a kid (I'm old but not quite old enough to have seen it in it's first run).  On a whim I bought the first two seasons on DVD at Best Buy (they were only 12 dollars apiece or something).  I watched about a dozen of them and then got bored with them. It can be fun in small doses but I can't watch too much of it at a time.  I was just eyeing them the other day, however, and was thinking about putting one in this weekend. 

Just out of curiousity,  do you know which season the episode is in that you are referring to?

Laserblast

I love MST.  I've never encountered another show where my opinions change so drastically on individual episodes due to repeat viewings.  I've never quite figured out why.  This was my third or fourth viewing of this. I've never been crazy about it in the past but this time it really clicked with me and I thought it was hilarious. The goofy aliens, the fat deputy, the emotionless blond lead, his vapid girlfriend.....plenty for the riffers to have fun with and they exploit it all beautifully.  I love all the Leonard Maltin stuff as well.  I wonder it Maltin ever responded to the whole two and a half star Laserblast thing.  I always wondered it it was Maltin himself who gave that review.  I know he has people that help him write the reviews.  One man can't watch every film ever made.

I'm sorry you got bored with I SPY ---it took me a few episodes but I LOVE it---it gets better and better. So since the first bunch bored you, I would recommend maybe skip the first few discs of season 1, maybe skip to disc 5, or even skip to season 2, and you might like it better, as they get funnier, more interesting, more exciting, and better written as they go on--as Cosby is more allowed to be himself, and, like any show, the show itself becomes more comfortable in its own identity (i.e. think of how rusty the first season of MASH is compared with the second, third, fourth, etc). But at any rate, please give the show another chance.

 The episode I was referring to is in Season 2. The episode with the title actress from MST's "The Terror from the Year 5000" is called "A Room with a Rack". The one with Peter Lawford is "Get Thee to a Nunnery". I think they were on disc 4.

I know what you mean about the multiple viewings----Merlin's Shop was one for me---I had to watch it a couple times to get over the pain before it clicked, and now it's one of my all time favorites. Laserblast is still a bit too painful for me, but I still love it. And I looked at Leonard Maltin's book and he did rate Laserblast 2 1/2 stars. Better yet----Leonard rated The Incredibly Strange....Mixed Up Zombies 2 1/2 stars also!!!! AAAAAA!!!!

I was always planning on getting back into it.  I think I just watched a couple of episodes in a row where not much was happening....and then I got distracted by other shows. I  watched a few season two episodes at a friend's house a few years ago and I remembered liking those a bit better, so perhaps I will take your advice and skip ahead a couple of discs.  Overall I like the show. The chemistry between Culp and Cosby is great, and it's funny without losing the serious aspect. It is incredibly dated with all the cold war stuff, but that is part of it's appeal as well.  I like those old spy shows and this was a good one.

glad to hear you say so, dangfish. But before you skip, don't miss Eartha Kitt's episode (not sure if you've seen it yet)-- I think it's incredible bold for a show from 1965 to have an episode all about heroin addiction, and Eartha and Cosby are fantastic in it.

okay, last night I watched the rifftrax of Iron Man, which led me to watch LASERBLAST --well, think about it: they both have round metal things on their sternum! anyway, it was much funnier this time. we can't help thinnking the harryhausen-from-the-50s aliens are from a whole other movie that they just found and put in their movie. And I can't help laughing at the bad choices they make---like assuming the ammo comes out the end it does on that gun when any normal person's first instinct is that it comes out the end that looks, uh, like a gun barrel... and assuming the necklace has to do with firing the gun and assuming 16 year old girls wear grandma nightgowns. But mom frightens us---it's nice of them not to discriminate against hiring SKELETONS.... ick! ick!! "Get an eating disorder--boys like that!" Overall though, it's growing on me more and more. I love the skits parodying 2001 Space Odyssey, esp. the one with dr forrester--straight out of the movie! brilliant!

My assumption has always been that Maltin starts every movie out at a certain star rating, and then adds or docks points on a case by case basis. Clearly, the star ratings are not meant to be compared from one movie to the next. :P
Title: Re: I Just Finished Watching...
Post by: THE QUEEN!!! on May 28, 2009, 10:52:10 AM
well, the official meanings behind the star ratings that I learned is 4 stars=classic, 3=first rate, 2=flawed, has moments, 1=wasted time. And I would call Laserblast wasted time, or 1 1/2 stars at best, certainly not almost first rate. So basically Lenny's ratings are no longer all that accurate to me.

I recently watched THE GIANT SPIDER INVASION which struck me as much funnier this time. I guess that means the trauma and pain are wearing off.

Ring of Terror

A big part of the fun of being a mstie is that many episodes seem to get better with repeat viewings.  Unfortunately, not this one. My third or fourth viewing. The endless spate of old college student jokes are too hit and miss and there's not much else in this dull dud of a film to keep this one afloat.

Then again, it was probably a bad idea to watch this right after Deathstalker & the Warriors from Hell, one of my favorites. Wizard delousing is a tough act to follow.

Creeping Terror

Not as funny as I remembered but still pretty darn funny.  70% of this film is literally watching the walking carpet monster creep around. This makes it challenging for the boys to come up with inventive riffs throughout, despite having the most ridiculous looking monster in movie history to riff on. They succeed more often than not, however. Despite the goofy-ass monster eating everybody in town, my favorite bits are the riffs on the narrator. Mike always shines on films with narration.  I think it's one of the main reasons why the shorts are some of the best stuff they do.

520 - Radar Secret Service (with the short Last Clear Chance!)

I LOVE this episode, mostly because this episode starts off with a CLASSIC skit in my opinion.  I didn't know about this skit until I saw this episode, to me this short of a deranged police officer stalking a farm family (ok that's not the main story but you'll see).   I consider this short to be up there with Hired! , Cheating and Once Upon a Honeymoon.

Up and down skits keep this from being all it could be.

Solid riffing for the movie parts, some highlites include:

Mike reminding us that Jesus himself invented Radar!

Crow stating "It's not the Radar, it's the size of the amplitude, if you know what I mean"

All in all solid work, but the short makes it mucho funo!

The first sci-fi episode I ever saw and still one of my favorites. Even though they've picked on old guys in tons of movies now, it's hard to beat their riffs on the poor professor guy here.  'Marie died, you know' gets me everytime.

THE AMAZING TRANSPARENT MAN---so brilliant, and so underrated. It has a lot of things I love---"were you in the lab? SLAP!" "locks mean nothing to him," "gentle pressure", "what would you do?", the invisible guinea pigs, "I'm going to have to climb out, see?" etc. It cracks me up. Best part is the ending of course, how they have a nuclear blast in the house and say "there's nothing left to make ashes", but the house frame is still standing!! and so are the telephone poles!! hilarious.

JACK FROST---one of my all time favorites. I love how the girl's voice is dubbed with the dumbest 9 year old type voice ever. and the guy is like errol flynn, the female version. and why does he go to all the trouble with the mushroom guy, that whole bear ordeal to teach him humility, if the next thing he does is arrogantly turn "hunchback fairy's" house towards him and stick her in the oven. so WHAT was the point of the bear thing?!?! anyway, this is so brilliant because the material is so bad.

MERLIN'S SHOP OF MYSTICAL WONDERS---another all time favorite. "You're welcome!" we were noticing that this is 4 movies in one. clearly the evil monkey movie is from 1982ish and is filmed on film, and the ernest borgnine and merlin movies are from the 90s and they're filmed on video! so it's soooo obvious. i love the clairvoyant that gets angry at David, and zerella who gets prematurely mad at the jerk guy, and the evil twisted things in these movies that Ernest Borgnine tells to his grandson!! so brilliant.

Earth vs Spider -

I never realized how much I like this one, it kicks off with a very fun short, as of right now it probably places somewhere in my Top 20.  A classic episode with strong skits and varied riffs, probably a good choice for people who are new to MST.

This is one of my all time favorite shorts. "WHERE'S THE RUBBER BAND?!?!"

Last night I watched The Girl in Gold Boots, always in my top 10 favorites, and usually in my top 5. I love how she doesn't care that her boss sells LSD, but it hurts her that Critter is a draft dodger. "A draft dodger?! You?!?!" Like he's the only draft dodger ever in the 60s. I freaking love this one though. the teleporting and the "dancing" and the "plot" that goes nowhere and how they call then icky elf "boy" and "kid", and "yak boy", and "She took 10 pounds of heroin and just fainted!" and "I wish I had my pretty mind back!" This one's a winner. But I love that at the beginning when they're "trying to get to LA" it's very obvious where they are, and it's in California like an hour or two away form LA. Well obvious to me who's been on I-15 a million times.

Also watched The Sinister Urge, during which a criminal climbed on my roof to escape the police. Weird.

Zombie Nightmare.  Never'd seen it before.

Well, there was a zombie, and the movie was a nightmare, so that worked out.  Main douchebaggy guy with the Duran Duran hair reminded me a LOT of Tom Byron.   I liked the episode, and the Mads doing the voodoo dancing to the drums almost made me spit out my rum & Coke.  Good stuff.

I saw Zombie nightmare a few days ago. I had seen it a few times on youtube and had been irritated at the low quality preventing me from seeing anything in a lot of the night scenes. Now with it out on DVD and as clear as can be... I still can't see much in the night scenes. Figures. Maybe this disproves my theory that AVP:R is a poor choice of movie for them to riff?

The Final Sacrifice

Another great source movie that makes you realize how perfect some of this grade-Z crap is for riffing. Featuring a bunch of actors that really should not be prominently featured on the big screen, Mike and the Bots dig in to all the ridiculous characters and don't let go. While the riffing goes up and down a bit, depending on the movie provided riff fuel, this one has a ton of laugh out loud brilliance. It has been a few years since I've seen this one and more then once I had to pause/rewind to catch riffs that I missed from laughing too hard. A solid nine stars.

HAMLET

I freaking love this episode because I'm so familiar with Hamlet that I don't have to try to figure anything out. Plus it's just so hilarious. "I shall never look upon his like again." "Why were you looking at his like?" Another joke I never noticed before, which is at the end during the fencing scene: "So when are they gonna start selling stolen merchandise?" "Not that kind of fencing!"

I always liked Josh myself... Considering that in the KTMA eps they were basically winging it, I thought he dropped the most consistent riffs. His mad scientist character was nigh unwatchable, but I always thought he was good in the theater.

113 - Black Scorpion

While this is pretty good for a season one episode, it's still something you probably only need to see if you're a completest. Take a somewhat dull source movie combined with riffers that weren't quite seasoned enough yet to carry dull source movies... and this one can be a chore to sit through at times. To their credit, the guys do their best to keep a decent pace, riffing more like a season two episode in many stretches. When the movie gave them something to work with, there were solid riffs to be had... but more than once I checked the timer to see how much was still left to go.  C+

Well there was also just a lack of energy in all the riffers compared to later seasons while Josh was there.  I really noticed it after seeing the Crawling Hand on DVD.  When the credits are going and there are little firework explosions outside the ship, Tom riffs in a bored sounding voice "this is like Love American Style"

Compare this to later seasons when an explosion could prompt all three in the theater to sing loud "Love, love, LOOOOOVE"

Same refference, more energy, bigger laugh from me.

Hmm... yea, maybe that's why I like his season one work.. It stands out as a clearly different style from the later and obviously more evolved seasons. Don't get me wrong, most of Season 0 / Season 1 are tough to sit through... but I'm always a sucker for a well placed deadpan... Josh and (to a lesser extent) Joel were good for those during the formative years when the guys weren't writing 300 riffs per hour or whatever... and his voice never really bothered me. 

Title: Re: I Just Finished Watching...
Post by: RoninFox on August 02, 2009, 06:53:53 PM
A good deadpan is a wonderful thing, but I think it was kind of overkill on those early eps.  Also, Josh seemed like he was king of the filler back then.  Like how he'd always just read the title of the film in his slightly bigger voice...yeah, but that's not a joke.  It sounds like he's leading up to something, but he isn't.

When he deadpans in a CT show though?  Hilarious.

Well yea... but everyone was dropping throwaway riffs that wouldn't be considered terribly funny when compared to later seasons, so I can't really say he was the king of filler... as they were all guilty of it when things were more off-the-cuff. Personally, I always thought Trace was the weakest link in the KTMA / Season 1 eps... but I know that is blasphemy... so I'll shut up now.

614 - San Fransisco International

This is a tough one to wrap your head around... One of those episodes that provides lots of  big belly laughs over certain stretches... with the "kid that steals an airplane" being one of the most hilariously riffed subplots they ever did... But I found that things were fairly average-to-below average otherwise. This has the dull early 70s made-for-TV stamp all over it... and especially early on, things are a bit tough to sit through. A lot of pop-culture riffs revolving around the 1970s (and the roster of 1970s character actors) will probably have little impact for anybody under 40. Still, those times that I was almost tearing up with laughter managed to offset the low points.

I have the same problem with pretty much every season one episode.  I try and try and try some more but I just can't seem to enjoy the first season. It's just so damn rough compared to the rest of the series, like a work in progress.  And the whole 'appreciating it for nostalgic reasons' thing is fine and all, but it doesn't help with the lack of laughter.  I watch MST to laugh at the riffs.  Period. 

I still force myself to attempt a season one episode every year, but it's getting harder and harder to even keep that commitment.  I would be fine if shout factory just left those episodes alone.

904 - Werewolf

This is one of my most revisited episodes and the new Shout Factory release gave me another reason to watch it. While I haven't bought the set yet, this one coming via Netflix, I think I am going to soon. The DVD features a little "history of MST3K" interview session with cast/crew from BBI. Altho this is part three, and I haven't seen parts 1 or 2, this was a great little bonus feature.

The episode itself is always great fun... Werewolf is just a bad, bad movie.... while maybe not on the same level of ineptitude as Red Zone Cuba or Manos... it has awful editing, direction, acting, makeup... you name it and Werewolf fails at it. However, it does fail in a peculiarly charming way... Sort of like watching a play put on by victims of closed head injuries... You don't want to watch, but you dare not turn away for fear of missing whatever pile of unintenionally inept insanity they want to hoist onto the screen next. It's easy to see that the folks behind Werewolf were really being earnest and trying to make something worthwhile... but wow, just wow... The seven different wigs for Yuri, the thickheaded European-ness of Paul and Natalie, the three completely different Werewolf costumes... this one delivers the goods. There were a few more jokes that fell flat for me with this viewing than I remembered,  but the work is generally top notch with a bunch of laugh out loud zingers. The host segments have a few moments as well, with Mike in drag for a silly 50s song and then becoming a "werecrow" being highlights. Overall, I go back and forth as to whether this one is a top 5 or not... but either way it's one of their better efforts. 4 outta 4.

519 - Outlaw (of Gor)

Pod People, PumaMan, Cave Dwellers, the Sinbad and Hercules movies, heck even Devil Fish... Continental Europe has a knack for providing bizarre riff fodder that can't be mistaken for anything American... and Outlaw of Gor falls right in line. CABOT! This vaguely Italian / Spanish fantasy flick has all the ingredients: sorta feminine hero guy, sorta masculine princesses, awful fight scenes/stunts, convoluted plot and lots of shots of barely clothed asses. M&tBs take things in stride to begin with but by the end are just throwing bile at the proceedings... it's very funny... and one of the first time in the shows history where the guys really just rip into the movie without mercy. CABOT! There are a  few areas here and there when the laughs aren't quite as forthcoming, but for the most part the guys really knock this one out of the park. It had been many, many years since my last visit and I forgot how fun it was. CABOT! If you liked Cave Dwellers or Deathstalker, you have to see Outlaw of Gor... it could be the best of that bunch. This deserves a place with Mitchell, I Accuse My Parents and Eegah as a highlight of season five. CABOT! Another 4 outta 4 stars.

Tormented


I wasn't crazy about  this one the first time I saw it.  Over repeat viewings, however, it has evolved into one of my favorite Joel episodes.  The riffing is on target throughout and I actually have a strange fondness for the film.  It reminds me of those old horror comics like House of Mystery.  Plus, Bert I. Gordon trying to be subtle is like a herd of elephants trying to sneak up on you.  I love the bit on the DVD with Gordon talking about the film.  He pretty much puts himself in the same league with Orson Welles.  Did he REALLY work on a film with Welles?

I also have an inexplicable fondness for this movie. Especially for the blind housekeeper, who I think is one of the only Bert I characters that isn't just a parody of an actual human being.

503 - Swamp Diamonds w/short: What To Do On A Date

The short is a lot of fun, as these ones from the 1950s that deal with the social mores of the day usually are... Joel and company have a great time with it. The movie itself is typical Roger Corman stuff, in that in features a few hot ladies and has a story that would struggle to fill a Beverly Hillbillies episode padded out to feature length.  It really is a credit to the gang that they can squeeze as many laughs out of this as they did... and they bring a couple of good host segments based on the dating short... but the nothing-ever-happens-in-a-Corman-movie factor will try it's best to break you before everything is said and done. The short gets a solid A, the movie gets a C+.

Sidehackers

My third or fourth viewing and repeated watches finally paid off.  I never cared much for this episode but this time I enjoyed it.  It will never be a favorite but I remember laughing more at the riffing yesterday.  And the running gag about the traveling fridge has always been my favorite part of the episode.  Plus, you'd be hard pressed to find another non-sci fi/fantasy flick with goofier named people in it (Rommel. Cooch....somebody named Tork I think?)  After enoying this one I think I'm ready to take on Hellcats again.  It's been a loooong time since I've seen that one. I haven't watched WIld Rebels in a while either, but that one has always been my favorite season two episode.

Has anyone else ever been curious to see the deleted scene where they kill his girlfriend.  I know the whole story about how shocked they were to come across that scene when they did the film.  I was disappointed they didn't have it as an extra feature on the DVD.

I watched "Laserblast" (706) tonight. That was fantastic. So funny throughout the entire thing, especially the beginning. The guys were seriously on their A game through the entire thing. It was like perfect shot after perfect shot. The alien "language" was hilarious.

"Edward CD Player Hand."

"Dirty and Harry."

"Callahan!"

Hellcats

I always thought this episode gets a bad rap.  The riffing does fade a little at the end, but overall I always get plenty of laughs out of this. I love the fact that literally 50% of the film is just watching this biker gang party. Even for an old biker movie this film is odd.  The scene where the wet biker guy screams something that can't possibly be real words and Servo's impression of him  is one of my favorite MST moments.  Appropriately, they used that scene for the stinger.

806 The Undead

I wish they had access to short movies to lesson the host segment times a bit (especially the end segment with Bobo). The host segment with Bridget is awesome, and the Digger LP has some funny moments. In the theater, the riffing was sharp as a razor. I've found I liked the experment much more after a few viewings. "STAAAAAAY!!!!"

This episode is one of the first I ever saw and it's one of my top ten favorites.  The riffing doesn't get much better than this.  And that Smolken guy is a classic MST character.  I know some people can't deal with the film but I find it fun in a twisted way.  I'm taking a chance and showing this at my next MST meet-up.  I have faith that the excellent riffing will satisfy.

I always liked this one... altho I might have some bias as it was one of the first Rhino VHS eps I owned..  So I watched the hell out of it during the dead time between the end of the CC era and start of the Sci-Fi era. My favorite biker one is still Wild Rebels, but Sidehackers has plenty of funny moments. The Hellcats has always been a middle of the road episode for me, but one that probably warrants a revisit.

Great episode, 10/10!

802 - Leech Woman

One that just keeps getting better with repeat viewings, Leech Woman is probably the strongest ep from the early part of season eight. Great riffing throughout. The source movie isn't that difficult of a watch and apart from some goofy stock footage, things come across more dated then incompetent. The story is a tad depressing with it's general moral depravity, but at least the pace never really drags.  In the lead roles, schmarmy 50s white guy and his neglected drunk of a wife give the guys plenty of great fodder. The host segments are a bit uneven, being only the second show of the Sci-Fi run, but overall this is a great episode. 4/5

I LOVE THIS ONE!!!! "Your navel's very deep, Fingal, I can't see to the bottom of it!" What does that mean?!?!?!? It's a mystery. I love this episode so much, esp all the public TV parodies. I love how clearly this guy only scrolled up Casablanca once a couple years ago because they keep using other classic films and calling them Casablanca. But really, they hardly thought through the plot, and that's why it's so funny. "Fingal, are you single? give me a jingle!"

Well, I have actually watch Mitchell unedited, so here's the skinny.  There's a scene cut out that was actually exciting (well, relatively).  It involves Mitchell checking Saxon's character out (not that way) at a dirt track.  Mitchell ends up attack by Saxon's character in a dune buggy, but as it is chasing him, it ends up flipping because of an incline (I think, it's been a long time since I've seen it).  Then Mitchell bashes Saxon's head in with a rock (which is that slo-moed scene from the opening credits.  Also, there's a scene where Mitchell slams some poor suspects hand in a car door, cementing his unlikability.

Catalina Caper. I've always really liked this one. I know they had a rule about not riffing comedies, but this turd is so unfunny they can get away with riffing on how bad the jokes are. Tommy Kirk is great fodder for them, too. Makes me wish they had riffed Absent Minded Professor (even though I kind of like that movie).

Interesting.  Does the movie really feature the nudity and swears that its wikipedia entry implies?

Based on my copy of Mitchell here's what MST3K cut out...

Subplot with the Larry Miller lookalike in the orange muscle car: Mitchell tracks him down, beats him up and slams the car door on his fingers (brutal).

Subplot about goons following Martin Balsam (I can never remember who's Lystretta, Galano, et al.): These guys are hired by the mobsters to intimidate Martin Balsam (Mitchell saves Balsam from being run over). Mitchell randomly shoots a goon on the golf course (as seen on MST3K).

Sex Scenes: Extended Linda Evans & Joe Don lovemaking. Kinda like the puppets in Team America but obscured by merciful bedsheets. Backside nudity, pillow talk, Linda Evans' grandmotherly sensuality getting dressed, Mitchell questions her about taking pot, etc. Gently traumatic viewing.

Extended plot: Martin Balsam has additional lines with Mitchell & Co. going over the various schemes. Less confusing but still boring.

John Saxon's death: A long series of scenes where Martin Balsam, Mitchell, and John Saxon try to screw over each other while Saxon is off-road racing dune buggies. Eventually Balsam and Saxon work out a deal to get Saxon to kill Mitchell. Mitchell... sidesteps the dune buggies, beats up a goon, steals his vehicle and chases Saxon around the track. Saxon freaks out and makes a fiery crash. Silly yet surprisingly fun chase.

Profanity: Here and there but nothing rememberable. They obviously filmed a theatrical and television version at the same time. Linda Evans writes 'Bastard' in lipstick on Mitchell's windshield (MST3K is 'Jerk').

It's kind of like the extended editions of the Lord of the Rings movies. It adds layers to the piece but useful only for the devotee.

Yes, I am proud of my 'Mitchell' poster.

Yes, MST3K riffed the edited for TV version. For those of you playing along at home, that means that you're watching an edited version of an edited movie. I'm sure the people who despise the series for not properly presenting films in their entirety would love this episode. In the TV version the death of John Saxon's character is only briefly mentioned on Mitchell's radio, which confuses Servo near the end. "Hey guys, wasn't John Saxon in this movie?"

Awww yea... stumbled across this little beauty at a thrift shop about 10 years ago...


(http://i31.photobucket.com/albums/c358/nunyerbiz/mitchell_vhs-1.jpg)

Of course, I've only watched it once... just to satisfy the guilt for paying the $4 asking price.... so my memories could be a bit foggy. Either way, I recall the plot itself being more boring than confusing when you watch the thing in it's uncut form... as it's a little easier to keep track of Mistretta / Gilano and all the various underhanded maneuverings of the mobsters. Also, I don't recall Mitchell bashing in Saxon's head with a rock.. I thought his dune buggy just flipped and blow'd up real good. I guess there could be yet another version out there with rock-to-head action... or I could just be forgetting the details. I do recall some swear words here and there and the alternate Linda Evans windshield message... so I think this is some flavor of the theatrical cut.  I have one VCR still hooked up somewhere around here... maybe I'll give this one another visit... Once every 10 years or so is probably about the limit.

Experiment #604 - Zombie Nightmare

I just bought the newest DVD set from Shout!  I never saw this episode before, but this was fantastic.  The riffing was top-notch, the movie deserved it, and it was a whole lot of fun.  I loved everything -- the Voodoo witch that talked like a cartoon sheep, the Eugene Levy-esque medical examiner, the fact that EVERYBODY WAS RELATED even more so than in a George Lucas flick.  Perhaps my favorite part was the interview of Jon Mikl Thor, and how hard he had to explain how "busy" he is these days.  This was a fantastic episode, all around.

Also watched Time of the Apes. Probably my all time favorite Joel, but I do love Mitchell. I wish they'd release Time of the Apes, but I know Sandy Frank will never give their approval. My favorite part of this one is the sketch parody of Inherit the Wind, because I hate that play/movie anyway. "What's all this horse hockey about man evolving from apes?" "They did.

A prime example of season three.  A bad film that is lots of goofy fun to watch with riffing that makes me chuckle throughout, without a lot of big laughs.

I committed an MST sin here. With the return of Joel and Frank, I usually don't fast forward through the host segments on this episode. This time, however, I watched it with my only friend who will occasionally agree to watch MST. The only condition, however, is that I must skip the host segments. Usually I don't have a problem with this, but in this case it just felt wrong. Like my own soul was being taken. We both laughed a lot. Great episode, Joel or no Joel.

We watch both actually.  My friend  prefers Rifftrax but lately he seems to be more amenable to an MST every now and then. My original error was showing him too many episodes with the older black and white films.  After showing him Final Sacrifice. Escape 2000, and Future War, I've realized that he's much happier with the 70's and 80's cheese.  And one advantage to watching them without the host segments is that you can get through an episode in about 70 minutes!

Never saw this one all the way through before--though I know I"ve seen Servo go into his rage-fueld "END! END! END!" bit--is that replicated elsewhere, or have I just seen that part?

The "chinese" voice part had me in stitches, and Servo's rant above, and...pretty good, solid riffing all the way through, really.

This is one of my favs!  Love the deadpan "please kill me."

Soul Taker

I committed an MST sin here. With the return of Joel and Frank, I usually don't fast forward through the host segments on this episode. This time, however, I watched it with my only friend who will occasionally agree to watch MST. The only condition, however, is that I must skip the host segments. Usually I don't have a problem with this, but in this case it just felt wrong. Like my own soul was being taken. We both laughed a lot. Great episode, Joel or no Joel.

If you have to skip the host segments, wouldn't it just be easier to watch Rifftrax?

We watch both actually.  My friend  prefers Rifftrax but lately he seems to be more amenable to an MST every now and then. My original error was showing him too many episodes with the older black and white films.  After showing him Final Sacrifice. Escape 2000, and Future War, I've realized that he's much happier with the 70's and 80's cheese.  And one advantage to watching them without the host segments is that you can get through an episode in about 70 minutes!   

I actually quite often fast forward the host segments unless their brilliant.

Last one I watched was Time Chasers. So great.

I never skip the host segments, even if they suck (which they almost never do).
Yeah, I never skip them either, unless they are Joel centric.

The closest I come are the S7 Pearl ones, to be honest. And I think MJP is hilarious, I just...can't fucking stand the "Clayton...Clayton!" over and over.

To each their own. It seems to me that if the viewer isn't crazy about the host segments, they could just use that as an opportunity to stretch their legs, go to the bathroom, or grab a sandwich. That's mostly because I don't like skipping anything other than advertisements though. Actually, there are episodes where I find myself more interested in the host segments than the movie.

I watched Time Chasers last night. That one, apart from being a really good episode on its own, holds a special place for me because it was the first episode I ever saw.

It was late one Saturday night, I was flipping channels, and there it was on Sci-Fi. Probably the same situation as a lot of people. There was this kinda corny movie on, and there was Mike, Servo, and Crow making their quips and it cracked me up.

I had heard of the show before, and my brother would change to it every now and then, but i didn't really know what it was. That was the first time I paid attention, and I was probably finally old enough to really get the show. I was probably 15 then.

I love how Michelle doesn't bat an eye that her boss/potential love interest sells drugs, but she is so shocked that Critter is planning soon to be a draft dodger. The skits rock in this one because they're all directly from the movie.

Also watched the MST3K Oscar Special. "Coeur de la Mer? Doesn't that mean middle of a female horse." That's as much of the Titanic riffing I'm ever gonna see. I love you, RT, but I refuse.

Being From Another Planet. Chosen by drawing cards to decide the season and episode.
I've seen every episode at least once (excluding KTMA) but I couldn't seem to place what movie belonged to that title. Seems like one of the ones that just doesn't get talked about all that much. All in all a good episode. Above average for me, but not the absolute best.
Favorite line:
movie- " Don't touch it! Go get Ken Melrose and tell him something has happened to the mold"
Crow- "Get Ken Melrose, he'll touch anything!

"Special effects by Billy!"

"if Michael Cain and Andre the Giant had a baby..."

God i love this episode. The effects are so laughable even by 60s standard. I know budgets can be a problem but a $5 toy helicopter and toy sub are not convincing in the least!

 I just watched episode 311 'It Coquered the World'. I hadn't seen this episode before. Very good Invention Exchange by the mads. The hangman costume is creative, and I'm surprised I've never seen it used as a real costume before.
  I loved the short Sport Parade in front of it. "A great way to blow an afternoon. Or a knee." The first segment parodying this short is very funny. Loved Tom's running at the mouth announcer and the abuse Crow gets. (Good to see Joel keep his mouth shut for the whole time, too)
  This movie has a good cast, Peter Graves, Lee Van Cleef and Beverly Garland. Beverly is particularly good here, I really felt sympathy for her character, being married to a crazy husband. And she's the only capable character in the whole movie!
  It also gets surprisingly dark, what with Graves having to shoot his wife. The monster...well it's goofy as hell and right up there with the carpet monster from Creeping Terror and Trumpy for silliest monster designs in MST3K movies.
  The riffing is top notch, loved this episode.

Episode 515 'Wild World of Batwoman'. Hilarious short 'Cheating'. "And by the way, have you seen my ribcage?". The running gag host segments were good "He coppied my freaking paper!".
This movie was really bad and stupid, but I don't see how some have called it "unwatchable". Ratfink is by far one of the most incompetent villains in MST3K movies, although I found Dr. Neon entertaining, if only because he reminded me of Dr. Forrester. Great riffing "One nation, under Hef."

Oh, and boobies. *drool*

Daddy-O.  Although I'm usually put off by the movies that MST3k did that weren't Sci-Fi or horror, they usually turn out to be pretty great episodes, and Daddy-O is no exception.  It's consistently funny throughout, and has a great musical skit by Joel and the bots where they take the piss out of the lead actor's trousers.

I have finally moved into 2002 and I have been actually getting some from the internets and burning and watching them.  Ones I'd never seen before were

Lost Continent
Teen Age Crime Wave
Invasion USA
Radar Secret Service
Brute Man (this one's on deck)

So my VHS tapes get relegated to a box and I get to see a bunch of MST3Ks I've never seen before.  I call that a win.

Well, the moon gets blown out of orbit and even though they can control where it goes somehow, they don't take it back to circle Earth. They go to a planet to get some mineral they need but Brian Blessed is there and traps one of their ships to get slave labor.  Holds some of the people hostage to get the others to give themselves up and come down to the planet. His shape-shifting daughter has a conscience so she helps then defeat him and escape and she goes with.

Second episode...I mean, half of the movie, shape-shifter gets sick and starts having fever dreams that cause her to turn into a monster and they have to figure out if they'll have to kill her or not before she kills everyone.  But they get through to her and she gets better.  Meanwhile another ship with the star of the series on board gets lost and they fret about if they're going to find them or not (which, like I said, the star of the series was on board....).

This has some AMAZING riffing, the skits on the other hand are pretty average.

Title: Re: I Just Finished Watching...
Post by: THE QUEEN!!! on January 20, 2010, 12:39:56 PM
Been on a kick:

PHANTOM PLANET---one of the best of the 50s movies, definitely. proof that you can ruin a sci fi movie with too much explaining. of course I love those immortal words about the good and the beautiful, but my favorite line really is the king's line: "But I am deeply plagued with regret when forced to destroy". The skits rock my socks (I love when the skits come organically from the movie), esp the skit where Mike plays Arabesque on the water glasses. Brilliant. Movie wise I can't help thinking, if people are balloons, why not just put the girlfriend on the ship, let her breathe earth oxygen, and then have her become earth sized?

MOLE PEOPLE----this is my favorite of the 50s episodes, by far, I think, because it's not a bad concept and they clearly spent some time on this movie, but it's STILL terrible! so to me it's even more pathetic than something like Manos which could have the excuse, "Well I only took one day". Plus Mole People clearly has a better budget than other MST movies, so that's even worse. Plus I hate John Agar anyway.

2nd SUMMER BLOCKBUSTER REVIEW-----I especially love the riff of the Armageddon section, since it's such a stupid movie, and I hope RT does the whole film. Also love the Deep Impact riff because, MAN, that chick is TERRIBLE----no one who mumbles that much would ever become an anchor woman. And I love Crow's "De Pimp Act". Makes me laugh every time.

GUNSLINGER---for me most of these episodes aren't as funny the first time as they are the second time, etc, and sometimes they take a couple viewings before they're really funny----this has nothing to do with the excellent riffing, this is simply me getting over the general confusion of what's going on and the trauma of how bad it is. well this time I watched this one I FINALLY was able to get over the pain and just enjoy the jokes. Favorite line EVER: "This movie is sitting on my head and crushing it!"

Oh this one is just glorious...   the windows blow out mid-flight, and everyone's just calmly talking above the slight wind as they casually fiddle with their oxygen masks...  and I don't think the riffs are minimal in this one at all.  It's just too easy!!!

I'm currently watching Mighty Jack (the next episode in the KTMA season) and I can honestly say that the riffs for this and the last few (SST Death Flight, and Fugitive Alien) aren't all that scarce.  I think they'd found their groove by this point... the episodes are starting to feel a LOT more "normal" by episodes 12-14

And the one that got me the most was when the frost and highlight guy was displaying his radio and said "vibrator" and Trace in his girl voice says quietly (but excitedly): "Vibrator?!"



My favorite episode:

Crow :Big deal my stools float..


I watched Final Justice today. Great movie.

Go ahead on!

603: The Dead Talk Back.

My god, what a great episode. 

Highlights include:
The German Guy ("Well, a crossbow killing, but I had NOSINK to do with zis one")
Jazz ("That was 'Interrogation in D'")
General interrogations ("Is someone purring?")

And the one that got me the most was when the frost and highlight guy was displaying his radio and said "vibrator" and Trace in his girl voice says quietly (but excitedly): "Vibrator?!"

I love Mike singing along to the "jazz." Toot ta-toot toot. Toot ta-toot toot. A child's introduction to jazz.

Is bloguing like blogging, but in an Irish accent?

it's from the word "blogue" which is the pseudo-French way I spell blog.  :D

I guess it's a Scottish brogue anyway.

"Och, crivens, The Million Eyes of Su-Muru was bollocks."

That it was.... Dreadful movie.  Hangar 18 isn't much better.  I'll be happy when my MST3k-a-thon gets out of KTMA.  And not because the episodes weren't good... it's just that the choice of some of these films were just horrid.

You see that is one of the reasons i like MST3K it shows me movies that are so bad i would never have heard of them or seen them on their own.  I tend to laugh when someone I know who has never seen MST3K calls the latest blockbuster they didn't like 'The worst movie ever made",I look on it as a point of pride that i know they have no idea how bad movies can get.

I always just bring up movies they'd never seen when people say "the worst movie ever..."    Usually Wild Wild World of Batwoman or The Room.  Then I act scenes out for them.  Battlefield Earth is another fun one to quote and describe to the unknowing.

I've shown, I dunno, maybe 40 different MST3K episodes to my girlfriend (she gets it but always falls asleep anyway), and nearly every time she says to me, "Wow, this is a really bad movie." My response: "Why are you always surprised?" Scientists... They can't see the noses on their faces sometimes.

It's interesting. There are definitely worse movies than those that ever made the MST3K cut. I think there's like a "barely qualifies as a film" category that is so bad, it borders on unriffable. The "genre" that springs to mind is the homemade (as in shot on a fucking camera phone) horror movie.

515 The Wild World of Batwoman - KILLER short (cheating), fun skits that focus on the short, and one of the most WACKY movies I've ever seen make for a good time.

ALIEN FROM L.A. and FUTURE WAR ---both much funnier this time around, again, because I'm over the pain. "She has a lot of pride and dignity." Funny riffs in both cases, but my favorite parts of Alien from LA were those awesome skits--a cut above the usual skits, I thought.

I liked it too, until it turned into a typical Michael Bay running away from explosions festival. I was actually impressed that he managed to hold back on the action for so long. Plus, Ewan MacGregor, Scarlett Johannson, Sean Bean, and Djimon Honsou are all too good for Michael Bay.

Just finished up being my Ben Murphyiest!

I really enjoy this episode, while not perfect the skits are pretty strong

Riffing is really strong from everyone in this one, solid team work and each riffer gets great jokes spanning the entire duration of this tv show, I mean movie!

Favorites:
Skits - Tom singing his song about the 0070s and Tom as a truck driver.

Riffs  Mike's "America for Americans" song/riff  and Yep, think I'm going to do me a pinch hit, put on some Deep Purple, and get this top secret government project underway.


A- , overall this is a must see for any MSTie!

one of my all time favorites,

MERLIN'S SHOP OF MYSTICAL WONDERS

HILARIOUS!!!!!

Best part, the part that clinches this movie in bad movie history, is that he's telling these disturbing stories to his grandson! Hilarious touch! Obviously they found that early 80s evil monkey movie and wanted to make it a feature or something, so they added all that 90s stuff, but it's really obvious, not only that it's 15 years later, but that the 80s movie is film and the 90s stuff is video! did they think we wouldn't notice? Sheesh! I would love to know, though, how the original movie ends. Obviously someone puts their hands between the cymbals, but who?

FUNNY LINES:
"ANd, so Billy, the little boy who looks just like you went through horrible, irredeemable grief"
"Since when has a man noticed a plant in a house?"
"Yeah, this looks like the most expensive thing in here!"
"You know, a devil!"
"So she threatened him with sex?"
"A book? doo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo!"

one of my all time favorites,

MERLIN'S SHOP OF MYSTICAL WONDERS

HILARIOUS!!!!!

Best part, the part that clinches this movie in bad movie history, is that he's telling these disturbing stories to his grandson! Hilarious touch! Obviously they found that early 80s evil monkey movie and wanted to make it a feature or something, so they added all that 90s stuff, but it's really obvious, not only that it's 15 years later, but that the 80s movie is film and the 90s stuff is video! did they think we wouldn't notice? Sheesh! I would love to know, though, how the original movie ends. Obviously someone puts their hands between the cymbals, but who?

FUNNY LINES:
"ANd, so Billy, the little boy who looks just like you went through horrible, irredeemable grief"
"Since when has a man noticed a plant in a house?"
"Yeah, this looks like the most expensive thing in here!"
"You know, a devil!"
"So she threatened him with sex?"
"A book? doo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo!"
HAHA!  Absolutely!  Great, great episode!  That movie is such a turd, but a sheer delight.  I love the psychic lady (or whatever she is) that explains what David needs to do in order to rid himself of the evil toy monkey!  She is so angry, "For God's sake David!  This is serious!"  Plus, the pompous, evil 'store review guy' who's vague critiques can destroy entire cities with the stroke of his pen.  So much for Mike and the Bots to work with in this one.  This is a favorite!

Oh, and "rock n' roll martian...

I finished this one the other day. Such a great episode! I did notice, though that the movie was so dark at some points that the silhouettes blended in. I thought they did something so the movie wouldn't be as dark as the shadowrama, based on what they learned way back at the beginning. Was this an exception or something?

I don't know if they had anything in place for dark movies in color, but they did have one for black and white movies.  At first they were told to make the shadowrama slightly green, but they didn't like how that looked, so instead they started tinting the movie slightly blue.  That probably would have been too distracting to try on a color movie.

Fairly amusing; I think the skits were better than the movie. I particularly enjoyed Mike's audiophile skit.

One of my favorite episodes.

And for a skit that kinda drags on for too long, Mike sure does sell it the whole time.  Great stuff.

I believe that it was a case of CC interfering.  Apparently someone at Comedy Central or Channel or Ha or whatever it was at the time thought that the idea of having black silhouettes against a sometimes black movie was ridiculous as you would lose sight of the silhouettes.  So for a while the silhouettes were a sort of greenish-black hue which of course was far more distracting than black silhouettes and so after a while they went back to the black silhouettes. Someone can correct me if I got that wrong.

Yeah, the suit that suggested that wasn't completely wrong about the silhouette disappearing, so they did it for 2 B&W episodes (I can't remember which.) before they realized that just tinting the movie slightly cyan looked a million times better.

607 - Bloodlust!

Not a great ep.  I liked the "Didn't steal no bike neither" callback, and the scene with the head boiling was pretty gruesome, but overall, kind of a yawner.



THe riffing isn't their best in this one.  However, I always found this to be one of  their more watchable cheesy B movies.  It's fairly fast paced and the plot is easy to understand, whch are two things that many  other MST movies cannot claim. 
Title: Re: I Just Finished Watching...

Was this based on "The Most Dangerous Game," or is it just a vague ripoff?

Much in the same way The Island was based on Clonus or Gemini Man was based on HG Wells.

This episode is a classic example of how many episodes seem to improve with age.  The first time I saw this I barely laughed and ranked it as one of my least favorites.  Now, after a few more viewings, it's one of my favorite Joel Episodes. They do a fine job riffing this wacko fantasy and have a good time with it.  And the movie is silly fun.  As Servo says near the end: Not bad for Bert I. Gordon!'

The Crawling Eye - The movie wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. The plot about the clouds moving with monsters in it reminded me a lot of The Mist. In fact, the eye creatures are rather creative and at the time were probably kinda scary. They are incredibly goofy B-movie monsters, though. They actually reminded me of Lovecraftian style monsters, what with the tentacles, the weird features, the mystery of what they want and where they came from (I appreciated that even though the scientist tried to guess at their origins, a definitive answer wasn't given). Also, this movie stars the absolutely gorgeous Janet Munro, most famous from Darby O'Gill and the Little People.

The riffing was better than I thought it would be, and picked up after the halfway mark. I didn't get why Joel asked Gypsy at the end for a good thing and a bad thing about the movie, since she didn't watch it.

Great Riffing, Crow did the best among the guys, with Tom second and Mike doing a solid job in 3rd.

Outside of the California Lady Skit , none of them were above average to me.

Eh to weak skits aside the riffing and the movie's "so bad it's fun"-ness really help make this a keeper of an episode. Not a classic but enjoyable from start to stop!

So, in the Final Sacrifice, Bibber the bearded prospecter guy (Consarnit!), he was an elaborate puppet performed by Jim Henson, right?

Watching Thepumaman.  I've seen it like a billion times, but I still gotta ask, did Vidhinyo really kill 4 people to find The Puma Man?  And he was just going to keep killing people until he got it right?  I mean, he's supposed to be a good guy, isn't he?  What happened here?

I think Donald Pleasence was supposed to be behind those people's deaths, but I forget why. That came up recently when Sampo got to Pumaman in his weekly episode guide (http://www.mst3kinfo.com/?p=4991)

Now that I think about it more, (Yes, I spent the night pondering Pumaman...) Vadinjo already knew Tony was the Pumaman, since he knew Tony's father. Lord help me, I'd really like an uncut copy of that movie.

Untamed Youth and The Black Scorpion. I love the late Season 1 episodes. Trace's Crow is almost his normal self, Josh was beginning to get really funny as Tom, and the movies are perfect riffing fodder (and I could stare at that blond singer chick in Untamed Youth all day long...Yowza!)

Just saw The Crawling Eye for the very first time and, especially after Joel's introduction on the new Shout DVD, it was better than I expected. There's a charm to those early episodes I quite enjoy. Sure, they're not as funny as later eps, and everything looks crappy, but I enjoyed experiment 101. It helps that The Crawling Eye is a fairly decent movie by MST3k standards. And Josh's Servo is finally starting to grow on me.

I could stare at that blond singer chick in Untamed Youth all day long...Yowza!

Yeah, I just watched The Corpse Vanishes last night and loved it. Of course, I love anything with Bela Lugosi in it, so the riffing just iced the cake. I enjoyed the spunky girl reporter who figures it all out, too. Pretty progressive for 1942. Well, apart from the fainting.

Hamlet. Holy crap, Phone Booth had more locations than that movie. And my frikkin' middle school could've built better-looking sets. Wow. I don't care if a lot of people hate that episode, I loved it. Especially the bit at the end with Fortinbras, which was a great nod to the fact that they had to edit the video down to fit the show.

610 - The Violent Years.

Again, the movie was sorta lame, but the short (medium?) was hilarious.  Really kind of raunchy for these guys too.

So, what did those girls do to that slim young man they dragged off behind the bushes, anyway? A true Ed Wood fantasy - they made him wear their clothes.  :D

109 - Project Moonbase. Almost done with the season 1 eps now...And this movie wouldn't have been half bad were it not for the offsetting of its portraying women in authority positions (female President!) with the misogynistic whiny spoiled brat characterisation of Col. Breiteis (and also for having a character named Breiteis)...

205 - Rocket Attack USA. I love how the last third of this is an almost completely different movie. You'd think a propaganda piece would be more well put-together.

612 - The Starfighters.  I giggled a lot at all the refueling scenes.  Kind of watched intermittently the rest of the movie as I was doing other stuff, but this wasn't nearly as bad as I'd heard it would be (on these boards it seems to be called the Worst Movie EVER). 

I know it makes me a philistine, but I definitely enjoy a movie less if it's in black and white.  When a B&W ep comes on, I sigh a little bit.  I know, for example, that Red Zone Cuba is lurking out there in a few weeks, and I'm already sort of dreading it.
You think Red Zone Cuba would have been better if it had been in color?!

I just watched three I'd never seen before:

SQUIRM ("Come on--nobody's that southern!!")
THE DEADLY BEES ("She looks like Lee Marvin")
BLOOD WATERS OF DR Z ("This guy peaked in the womb")

Fav of the 3? The Deadly Bees. Some Brits saw Hard Days Night and THe Birds and got confused. Best part is the ending guy in the bowler hat with the torgo-esque theme. HILARIOUS!! Also adored the skit at the beginning. "Sauce.... too thick.... save yourself!"

Deadly Bees really is an excellent one.  Squirm is just...sort of disgusting.  I don't even remember Blood Waters, though I'm sure I've seen it.

I loved the Deadly Bees  ("the dogs meat!").

Blood Water of Dr. Z gets my award for most unusual folk-based theme song that was much better than the movie itself.

God, I love The Starfighters. Great riffs, exceptional host segments, and an odd movie where nothing at all happens, but without any off-putting utter incompetence. One of my favorites.

I don't even remember Blood Waters, though I'm sure I've seen it.

SARGASSUM! Weed of deceit! I like Dr Z a lot, especially since each act feels like a completley different movie - the supreme weirdness of the opening mad scientist stuff, the traditional guy-in-a-crappy-suit attacks people stuff, and the cracker sheriff/young black EPA investigator buddy movie. Three shitty flicks in the space of one.

Mostly through 519 - Outlaw. Tried to get through it all last night, as I hadn't seen it since the `90's and only remember the "Toobular Boobular"  song - but unfortunately, had to stop with half an hour left because it was 1:00 AM & and I needed to sleep... However - Wow, what a classic episode. My only nitpick: Either one flew by at the beginning and I missed it, but I'm surprised that an hour into the movie there's still no Rick Moranis joke regarding that annoying Watley guy. Don't tell me if one pops up when he reappears, I want to be surprised.

Just finished watching Prince of Space, one of my alltime favorites. I LIKE IT VERY MUCH!

I couldn't stop laughing at the riff at 51:00 "Haaa-oh, well no..."
Mikes performance of starting a hearty Krankor laugh and then changing his mind just slays me. He does it again at the 1:19:00 mark, too.

"I'm ashamed of my talkshow."

"Swing me that way trusty string!"

"Oh, for crying out loud. EACH. OF. YOU. WILL. ENTER. A. SPACE. CAPSULE."

And of course all the "Bukawk" riffs. I wish there were more of those, but I respect them not going overbord with the easy joke.

Did I miss it or was there no "chicken of tomorrow" reference?

Sounds like our break-up is going to take this time.

So, of the 13 I've watched recently:

601 - Girls Town - didn't like
602 - Invasion USA - great
603 - Dead Talk Back - fantastic
604 - Zombie Nightmare - good
605 - Colossus & the Headhunters - good
606 - Creeping Terror - terrible
607 - Bloodlust - didn't like
608 - Codename: Diamond Head - quite enjoyed
609 - Skydivers - ugh
610 - Violent Years - GAH
611 - Last of the Wild Horses - Not good
612 - Starfighters - much better than I remember, but still only average to good
613 - Sinister Urge - GAH

So that makes 7 I didn't like and 6 I did in the first 13.  :/

Your taste is in your tush.  I suspect the ones that you liked for for the wrong reasons.

What's not to like about Skydivers? I mean, besides the movie, despite being arguably the best Coleman Francis film. I can see not liking The Creeping Terror, though I enjoy it. (But that endless segment where Mike listens to the sock hop music on his hi-fi I could live without.)

Meanwhile, I watched San Francisco International.  Now that's more like it.   

That we can agree on. Dear 1970s, Thank you for being you. Love, MSTies everywhere. But those Urkel sketches. Ugh.

I never thought "mantis in my pantis" was that funny.

The Corpse Vanishes - "This is much better than my own entrance through the sock drawer!"

12 to the Moon. Putting aside the short - in my opinion the 3rd funniest short behind Mr. B. Natural and Last Clear Chance - and the great host segments, the movie and the riffing is hilarious. I do have to give the movie props for the whole pre-Star Trek international crew idea, but then it threw any semblance of a preachy-yet-decent B film out the window with the invisible helmet  face shields, the director forgetting that gaffers and set lights don't occur naturally on the moon and the space taxi...on a stick!

I had just assumed it was a silly childlike mispronounciation joke, like how Hellboy says "pamcakes."

#420 - The Human Duplicators. It's nice to see Richard Kiel in a speaking role, too bad he's a lousy actor. I love that Joel gets to outshine Trace and Kevin for once in mimicry, he really shines doing his Kiel voice. "Here's your dolly." I wonder, did the director tell Kiel to act like a robot, or did he think "Jeez, Dick sounds like one of the androids. Say, that gives me an idea for a twist ending..." William Conrad Fridge Alert, Hugh Beaumont, Dolores Faith moving on to acting blind after acting mute in Phantom Planet. (I wonder if she and Kiel reminisced on set. He was the Solarite.) What's not to love?

#809 - I Was A Teeneaged Werewolf. A funny episode marred by a movie that, like Girl In Lovers Lane, really pisses you off. How can you not feel sorry for Tony? Sure, he's got anger management issues - like so many teens - but he's working on that, and the movie goes out of its way to portray him as a sympathetic, otherwise good kid. He does well in school, obeys his dad, has a bunch of friends, a girlfriend he genuinely seems to care about, plus he's Michael Landon! (Granted, that didn't mean anything in 1957, but nowadays...) I wish we at least could get some closure by seeing Tony savagely kill Whit Bissel, but no. Depressing Dad probably hanged himself again after the cops gunned down poor Tony. "Animals are afraid of vacuum cleaners. Should we bring some of those into the woods, too?"

201 - Rocketship X-M: Great intro (Frank's introduction is the highlight), decent host segments (although the 3rd segment took me a while before I got what the hell they were doing) - hilarious riffing of a seriously boring movie. I don't wanna knock on J. Elvis, but you can feel a new level of energy with Kevin and Frank - the repartee between everyone already seems to be coming together. Best riff? Crow's "Rutabaga, rutabaga - Scientific rutabaga." Ah, drama classes...

Finished up the rest of 315 - Teenage Caveman during lunch (no, not lunch break. Just lunch...) A classic episode - The fighting between Frank and Forrester is gut-bustingly hilarious (I love the shaking camera the most.) Then there's two hilarious shorts (though the ugly from Catching Trouble still manages to shock me every time I watch this episode. The segment after that short is perfect.) And after that - Corman! Boring yet hilarious Corman! The riffing on this turkey is great. "What? Oh, it's an Escher mountain..." "Hey , you think that fire's big enough, Bub?" "Throw your spears at the monster stock footage!" "Oh look, he invented the quiver!" "And so did she!"

811 - Parts: The Clonus Horror. Tell you the truth, it's actually an interesting concept. Definitely one of the better films the show riffed. Crow's nosejob at the end is so hilariously adorable, too. I love Mike's frozen expression of shock upon seeing it. The turn as one of the Space Children might be my favourite Paul Chaplin appearance on the show, ever. Fave riff: Tie between "Only you can prevent groin fires!" and Tom's many "B-TSH! Ow!"s.

Now if only they'd had a riff about Michael Bay...That would've been justice.

Maybe these complainers just heard the title and got mad, but didn't actually watch the episode and didn't realize it was that version of Hamlet. :) Or maybe the version of Hamlet was so painful to those who know the text that they can't find the humor past the misery. Sounds like an interesting research paper to me.

418 - Attack of the The Eye Creatures.

Although, how they did that squirting paper gag...That I wanna know. Props to them for that one!

yeah the only two reasons I can think of hating that episode are being offended that any version of Hamlet would be mocked or being bored at the horrible monotone acting (even Montalban as the dubbed voice of Claudius just sounded bored, what the hell) but the riffing always keeps me interested.

I can't help wondering if the movie is better in German--like maybe the bad dubbing killed it, making the acting seem worse and slowing it all down. But I doubt it's too much better.

Racket girls.

another absolutely terrible, awful, unwatchable movie.  The short was great, the skits are good, but...goddamn, those wrestling scenes last FOREVER.

I think S6 is perhaps my least favorite since S1.

Yea... there do appear to be some stinkers in S6... I could never really get into the Coleman Francsis trifecta or Racket Girls... and altho the names escape me at the moment, I vaguely recall a few other "riffing only slightly dulls the pain" featured movies. Invasion USA maybe, that was a S6 I think.... Anyhoo, there is a lot to like as well... Girls Town is one of my all time favs... and then there is:

The Last of the Wild Horses

The really fun host segments, leading to the Mads entering the theater and getting some riffing work, sets the pace for this one. The source movie is a little dull, but never painful. While the riffing isn't the best they've ever done, there is a lot to like here. I never felt bored. Not an all-time great, but a very solid episode.

612 - The Starfighters.

Guh...

I'd completely forgotten about this episode. Only saw it once, and in 1994 I was just 9 years old, so it didn't stay in my mind. Holy Lord On A Stick , I'd take any of Coleman Francis' movies over this one.  Definitely the Lost Continent of season six. How did they watch that movie unriffed? I would've fallen asleep if I had. I nearly did watching it riffed this time around. And that wouldn't have been a great scene at all.

Spider Invasion is a breeze to get through compared to Squirm.  It is almost impossible for me to sit through all those worm scenes.  Just typing about it is making my skin crawl.  *shudder*

At least Spider Invasion has more than a few moments of real levity in it (many of them created by the riffing, of course).  The extensive sexism scene, the scenes with the Skipper, the scenes that are so dark you can't tell what's going on or who's in them, they make all that nasty stuff going on at the farm bearable (at least for me).  In Squirm, even despite the great riffing, it just feels like a never-ending stream of sadness and grossness to me.

Of course both Invasion and Squirm pale in comparison to the bedroom scene in Mitchell.  Talk about disgusting.

My fourth or fifth time watching these.  Like many season three episodes, I didn't care for them on first viewing but learned to love them through re-watches.  I still seem to like the first one a lot more.  I find myself laughing much more steadily at the first one.  The second one has it's moments but seemed like ninja overkill to me.

Oh yeah.  There'd HAVE to be one in the HP one where the bad guy turns into a snake at the end (the titles are all a blur to me; I think that's the 2nd one?).  I guess I could think of any RT with snakes in them.  That should be a fair bet.

"Space Children".  Never seen this one before, and I loved it (which means I'm 3 for 3 now!).  This one ranks in the "Not a terrible movie" category, meaning I could prob watch it non-riffed.  It suffers from a truly horrible title for what could've been a decent Twilight Zone episode (in the later seasons anyway).

Then again, anything prob would've been delightful since I just watched "Monster A-Go Go" which has to be the 2nd worst movie I've ever seen ("Red Zone Cuba" is still my #1).  Nobody warned me it didn't have an ending!!!!

Blood Waters of Dr. Z.

Man, what a dreadful little movie.   So, the ex-Nazi (I think that is what the movie was trying to imply) thought that by turning people into fish, he would rule the world?   If everyone was a fish, wouldn't the leaders still be leaders, just be fish leaders?    Hell, some of them already look like fish anyway.

So, at the end, did the monster die, or did he dive underwater on his own with the canisters (or provolone)?    The editing was so bad I could not tell if everyone died, or everyone but the fish.   And did they ever explain why he had stomach pains?

ARGH

Space Children is so perfect.  The worst of the worst movies aren't the best ones, it's these cheesy ones like SPace Children or a lot of the Roger Corman poorly acted ones that are the funniest. There's a sweet spot there between good and awful.

Thanks for mentioning Roger Corman.  I almost mentioned him (I'm a fan of "Night of the Blood Beast"; "Not everyone's name is Steve!!!").  I'm looking for more eps like that that I haven't seen.  Any you would recommend (besides "Teenagers From Outer Space" or any Ed Wood or Roger Corman ones)?

Now if only someone in that movie had wished that there were no worms in the world, little Wormie the worm sprite would have shown up and taken care of that.  Problem solved!

Beast of Yucca Flats - With two shorts in front of it, I think this is the shortest movie they've ever riffed (I could be wrong), yet it still has the most padding. There is more nothing in this movie than The Neverending Story. Great riffing, though. And the last line of the episode is one of my favorite quotes: "I'm going to start slapping you now, and I may never stop."

Between Ron Jeremy the action hero, Gary Busey the preacher and the Skipper as the sheriff (try and guess which ones real) this movie was doomed to fail from the get go.

They're uncut movies.  So some times the move is more painful  And which means if there's nothing to riff in that part....

This isn't always bad though.  I found the bits they cut from Time of the Apes very interesting.  And you understand more of the story.  And Time of the Apes is also cool in that it's just the Bots in the theater.

That was probably one of the more terrifying movies I've ever seen.

Watched the Corpse Vanishes ep. last night as part of a Bela Lugosi marathon.  I've only seen a couple episodes from season one, and I was pleasantly surprised that the sound in that episode was pretty good.  I can't get over how Minnesota-y Crow sounds!! I think it's a cuter voice than the accentless Crow that Trace does later.  I really loved the host segment with the barber shop.

UnMSTied, of course.

Just went back to watch Godzilla vs. Megalon today.  I had very little memory of it, but this one episode guide I stumbled on considered it a classic.  Was a bit stressed out and it seemed like the perfect thing to get me back on an even keel.  Maybe I was in a foul mood, but it was a touch disappointing.  I had most likely seen it some 15 years ago, but I remembered almost none of the movie, and I see why now.  However, unusually, the host segments were really really funny.  The Jet Jaguar song at the end was painfully hilarious.  So, overall, a bit of a slog, but capped off perfectly. 

Still, that's what I get for listening to that guy.  I mean, he hated Boggy Creek II.  And that's just nuts.

That's the threat Pearl makes at the very end of 811- PARTS: THE CLONUS HORROR, when Mike and the Bots accidentally wake up the space children that Pearl & Company are taking care of. I guess she forgot, because there weren't any episodes that featured him after PARTS. On the other hand, she probably figured THE INCREDIBLY STRANGE CREATURES WHO STOPPED LIVING AND BECAME MIXED UP ZOMBIES was punishment enough.

906 - Space Children

I hadn't seen this one in forever, probably since the original Sci-Fi Channel run. Nothing really outstanding about this episode, but it's got solid riffing throughout. The short was mainly funny just because of how overly enthusiastic the two kids were. Crow's Jackie Coogan Fashion Show was the best host segment, and the riffing against Jackie Coogan and 'The Professor' were great ("He's going to use his coconut powered spanking machine on me!" and "How does it feel to get your butt whooped by "The Rest"?) Besides those, two of my favorite riffs were "Somebody here to see Gramma Blob?" and "We may have a problem launching the Thunderer. Especially if all the stalls are full."

If David Lynch ever decides to make a monster movie, expect it to feel a lot like that.

Yeah I mean the "robot" was an ape in a diving helmet.

I'm pretty sure that the henchman in Megamind was supposed to be an homage to it:

It was ambitious, I'll give it that, and it makes sense that it couldn't adapt all the elements of the original short story.

As bad as it is, I kind of feel the same way of the Undead, which was clearly Corman trying to use overworked dialogue to pay homage to Shakespeare.

The italian filter host segment is good, I especially like the "Warning Ethnic Slur" caption.

But my favorite from that episode (can't find it on it's own on Youtube) is the end dinner scene when Bobo goes wild and Brain Guy is mimcking Isaac in the background. I also love the writeup Kevin did for this on Satellite News Episode Guide refering to that as "Bobo blows a cog". Makes me laugh with childish glee every time. :D

Title: Re: I Just Finished Watching...
Post by: Darth Geek on August 07, 2011, 06:38:13 PM
I think it's to get better audio. I don't recall Joel having a headset, but I'm sure as the show went on they tried to have better production values, and that was part of it. If you notice, in the episode where Mike gets turned into the robot, the robot also has a headset when in the theater.

I'd have to go with the polar bear. Someone could conceivably make a robot that looked like Torg (I won't conjecture as to why on Earth they would do so), but it's well known what a polar bear looks like, and it doesn't look like a white furred Bulrathi. Plus... y'know, the whole headpiece not even being attached to the body thing...

And yes, I put way too much thought into that in the last five minutes.

I watched KTMA Phase IV since these episodes were the subject of a recent thread.  It's really not that good, though still better than most of the crap on T.V. these days.  I do find some sort of innocent charm in these early episodes.  In that vein I went to DAP to get a copy of 108 - The Slime People and found the CT gang at a forum (comic con perhaps) and Joel setting up a viewing of KTMA 00 - The Green Slime, in it's entirety!!  Wow!  As any fan knows this was only a fifteen minute pilot episode, but it's still cool to finally see it.  Now if only JH would release (or leak) all 3 so us MST3K nerds could have the complete set.

  I watched part of the extra The DVD Menus of MST3K. Aside from the obvious "they are really running out of ideas for featurettes", I can't beleive they are proud enough of these things to put a feature on about them. Am I the only one who feels that it is horribly  WRONG to have CGI (of any sort) related to MST3K?! I appreciate a little of the creativity of some of the menus, but it just feels completely out of touch with the show. I know it's cheap CGI, but how much more expensive would real puppets have been? Not to mention that the cheap CGI makes it look like The Asylum got ahold of the rights to it.
  Please, Shout! Make some puppets and cheap sets and do them that way. Everything else about your company and DVD releases shows that you care and that you "get" the show. Except what comes up when I actually pop the DVD in the player.  :P

This is one that I've always enjoyed... it isn't consistently strong... but has just enough great gut busting sections to make it stand out. When the guys find something to work with... they nail it.

Secret Agent Super Dragon

I don't know if it was just a bad spy movie, a badly dubbed European movie, the edits made for MST3K running time... likely a combination of all of that... But this was a barely decipherable mess. Still don't know exactly what the hell was going on... poisonous chewing gum and Ming vases up for auction... no idea how this shit gets put to film... and there wasn't much a villain to speak of... but it had some attractive women and a schmarmy lead. So I guess it wasn't a total write-off.

The riffing had it's high spots, and was generally steady, but this one probably doesn't get as many big belly laughs as their other Bond-esque spy episodes like Operation Double 007 or Agent for HARM. The host segments were generally forgettable, but I did like Frank getting heckled in the "Virtual Comedy" machine from the Mad's invention exchange... and Crow's "Spy Who Hugged Me" script had it's moments.

Easily worth the time if you haven't seen it before, but probably a middle of the pack episode in the big pecking order of things... and there are other episodes that I'll revisit before this one when I want my MST3K James Bond ripoff fix.

Oh, I don't know. I for one think the SciFi years are far and away the best seasons of the series. I much prefer Mike to Joel, and I also think Corbett is the superior Crow. I don't laugh nearly as hard at earlier episodes than I do at seasons 8-10.

Personally, I enjoy all seasons.  I was with them form the begining of the Comedy Central years.  I enjoyed watching the show change and develop along the way.  I don't take part in the "I like this or that one better" debate.  I am grateful for all the seasons of MST.  Each season has high and low points.  What TV show doesn't?  I've just found in my experience a lot of people don't care for the SciFi years.  Many like to hate on Pearl.  The whole thing was a great and wonderful ride, and I was sad when it ended.  It's great that today we now have Rifftrax and CT.  Although Rifftrax beats the sh*t out of CT in proliferation!

I find the SciFi era more consistent. I think they had higher quality subject movies for the most part... no Coleman Francis or Cy Roth or Burt I. Gordon or painfully dull Hercules movies. I suppose they did get stuck with a Roger Corman and a Ray Dennis Steckler and Neptune Men ... but for the most part, I think they consistently found better subject movies, probably part of that due to being under the same conglomerate as Universal Studios. But the CC-era probably has six of my top 10... and four of my top five... maybe less consistent but reaching greater heights when everything clicked... And I always liked Joel a lot in the theater... He had that laconic, laid back delivery that made the most of those throwaway one word reaction type riffs that nobody else could pull off quite as well.

I guess in the big picture, I've always been somewhere between casual and hardcore fan... There isn't a whole lot from KTMA or S1 that does much for me... and most of S2 I could leave behind... and there are plenty of later episodes that I've watched once and didn't get more than the occasional chuckle... I do like seeing the stuff I've never seen before, and getting an idea of how the show developed is cool... but it doesn't always lead to a lot of laughs. Never been one for the old Mistie standby line of "bad eps of MST3K are better then 99% of TV".

He had that laconic, laid back delivery that made the most of those throwaway one word reaction type riffs that nobody else could pull off quite as well.

I guess in the big picture, I've always been somewhere between casual and hardcore fan... There isn't a whole lot from KTMA or S1 that does much for me... and most of S2 I could leave behind... and there are plenty of later episodes that I've watched once and didn't get more than the occasional chuckle... I do like seeing the stuff I've never seen before, and getting an idea of how the show developed is cool... but it doesn't always lead to a lot of laughs. Never been one for the old Mistie standby line of "bad eps of MST3K are better then 99% of TV".

GODDAMMIT! Why is everyone so balanced and diplomatic? Take sides people!

Just kidding. There a plenty of CC-era episodes that I cherish. I think I'd be very hard pressed to come up with a top-ten list. That would be brutal. However, I will say that it would be dominated by SciFi-era stuff. For me, the show has never delivered on the level it did with episodes like Riding With Death, Werewolf, Track of the Moonbeast, Deathstalker, etc. That was just rarified air if you ask me. And those eps make me laugh harder than any others. My sides literally ache after each viewing of Riding With Death, and I've seen it more times than I can count.

I was a teenage werewolf

I know the SciFi years don't get a lot of love, but this is still one of my favorites.  I remember watching this movie as a kid on the local Saturday night Chiller Theater.  MST makes the experience of poping it on for a late night Saturday with my favorite snack pure pleasure.

Oh, I don't know. I for one think the SciFi years are far and away the best seasons of the series. I much prefer Mike to Joel, and I also think Corbett is the superior Crow. I don't laugh nearly as hard at earlier episodes than I do at seasons 8-10.

Agreed. Now let us celebrate by the adding of chocolate to milk.

HUZZAH!!!  :cheers:

Season Five probably has the largest chunk of my personal favorites: Santa Claus, Mitchell, Eegah, I Accuse My Parents, Painted Hills and The Girl in Lovers Lane are all top notch gold... And Outlaw of Gor, Teenage Stangler, Magic Voyage of Sinbad, Teenage Crimewave and Village of the Giants are all solid A- / B+ episodes. Probably the single season that I revisit the most... Followed closely by S8 and S9 from Sci-Fi.

Seeing that I've been in a MST3K mood lately... I watched another one today... this one from the "I don't think it's out on DVD yet" pile...

Daddy-O (with some short about the alphabet)

The alphabet short is not one of their classic educational film efforts... but it's still pretty good. The movie itself is a goofy juvenile delinquent / mob ties / drag racing / car crashing / guy in his 30s trying to pass for a hip kid / bad singing movie from the 1950s. I've seen this one a few times over the last 10 years and I always enjoy it... partially for the goofy assed source movie. This seems like the kind of shit that was already lame and dated the day it hit the theaters... and the guys have a good time riffing on it. I wouldn't consider this an all time top effort, the riffing is solid but never side splitting. The host segments were actually a highlight here, including a great song and a funny turn in what I have to think is one of the earlier appearances in a guest spot for Mike Nelson. Recommended if you enjoy the 36 year old juvenile delinquent genre that was apparently popular from 1958 thru 1961.

I know it's cheap CGI, but how much more expensive would real puppets have been?

The CGI is probably done by one guy using an already-owned copy of Maya or some such software. Real puppets would require construction workers and cost of materials for rebuilding the SOL set (unless they greenscreened it, which wouldn't be much better than just sticking with the CGI), plus a location for the set where it can stay indefinitely for use in all future DVD releases, plus the cost of building the puppets, plus (at least) two puppeteers for each shoot, plus camera operators, lighting technicians, and any other crew members who might be needed.

So, yeah, live action DVD menus would definitely not be worth the hassle.

Sat down to watch "The Brute Man" from the new boxed set.  I made the mistake of watching the extras first.  Holy sh*t were they ever depressing!  I don't know if I can ever watch this again knowing what I know now about the guy who played "The Creeper".  What a downer of a story.  So I went with "Time of the Apes" instead.  Felt much better and laughed out loud.  Nuff said.

...Night of the Blood Beast.  Netflix is so amazing, I can't believe I lived this long without it.

Because I didn't have cable most of my life, most of the MST3K's I've seen were purchased on VHS, and a few on DVD.  Anyway, the point is, I had never seen the Deep 13 intro that accompanies this one.  It must have been just after Frank left.  It wasn't their best intro, but it was cool to see it, anyway.

As for the show:  Loved short, "Once upon a honeymoon."  If you're gonna sell me on the idea of a phone in every room, sheesh, just say so.  Weirdest darn thing ever.  Some awesome riffing though.  The Elton John riff was obvious, but perfect none the less.

The main event was not my favorite by a long shot, but had some really funny moments.

Night of the Blood Beast is one of my all time favorites.  The reason is because it was season seven's introduction during the turkey day marathon that year.  I made my own mash up of all the host segements and bumps during that marathon, for one long seamless episode.  I don't care for the copy I have sans the tukey day stuffing.

Seems like a lot of season 10 is covered in a thick, grimy layer of sleaze: Soultaker, Girl With the Gold Boots, Dr. Z, Boggy Creek, and Squirm are all really greasy, disgusting movies.

There are a few oily characters in Track of the Moonbeast and Final Justice as well. Season ten really is slathered with a thick coat of t-zone oil and bodily funk.

She Creature -  Gets funnier with each viewing.  Riffing is great but what else would you expect from the only film ever to have a scene with a dog being hypnotized?  Still, this is one of those episodes that might take a couple of viewings to appreciate.

Samson vs. The Vampire Women

I had checked MST3Kinfo shortly before viewing this all the way through, where the reviewer stated this episode was, for them, in the "Good, not great" category.

I don't know why, but I often find myself disagreeing a LOT with the reviews on MST3Kinfo.  Joel/Mike aside, I always tend to like later episodes better, just because I think the rhythms of the gags and the atmosphere got more comfortable.  This is one is no exception.  I hadn't seen this one until now, but my God, this one had me going the whole time, especially with Trace doing the Professor imitation.  Even so, I still think Mike had the best line of the whole thing:

"Sometimes lint gets in your eye and creates ghoulish shapes.  It happens to everyone!"
Runner-up: "I don't know.  I just came home and they were here." (Paraphrase)

That, and all the vampires karate-chopping people to death is just hysterical.  Nothing says undead creatures of the night like a "cheap thug" smack to the back of the neck.

Another episode I didn't care for at first but have grown to enjoy quite a bit.  Fun riffing on A fun movie.  Rathbone is always worth watching and he makes a great villian.  Interesting to see Gary Lockwood in this too.  One of the very very very few MST films I actually might have paid for to see in the theater.

Yeah no matter how bad the movie you can't go wrong with Rathbone.  I don't think the Sherlock Holmes movies he did were that great but I still watch them just for him and Nigel Bruce.  Have you ever seen The Adventures of Robin Hood?  If not rent it,I think it has Rathbone in his best villain role.

Yeah, he's great in Robin Hood.  I love the Holmes movies too even though I'm a bit of a Conan Doyle purist and have real issues with setting some of the movies in WW2!?  Still, Rathbone makes it worth watching

Watched Manhunt in Space.  Only second time I've seen this one.  A lot of fun, as is the other Rocky Jones episode.  Also love the Guiding Light short so much it always makes me wish they had done more soap opera stuff other than these two GL shorts.

Some of the ideas like having the different races that would come back each week and stuff like two planets about to run into each other and the natives of one not wanting to leave could have been the basis of a really good show a decade or two later.

   Watched King Dinosaur for the first time yesterday. This is easily the worst depiction of supposed "astronauts" ever in a MST episode. The stupidest, most incompetant idiots, and altoghether unpleasant people. They barely do any "science" and even outright ignore the scientific importance of things around them. It doesn't help that the majority of the movie is more Camping: The Movie than Harry Potter 7 part 1. Yes, the animal cruelty is pretty despicable.
   I finally got to see the infamous Joey the Lemur sketch, and...what the fuck WAS that? It didn't even look like a dress rehersal, more like the pitch meeting for a sketch. And one that would have been rejected, to boot. Same thing with the "emotional scientist" sketch. I know Joel's sleepy eyed expression makes some people wonder if he is stoned, but here it feels like EVERYBODY has been toking some of what Joel's been having.

Classic host segments, too. "Let me be frank about Frank" is awesome. Mike as Torgo is always funny, but my favorite bit is when Dr. Forrester is gets impatiant and rushed Torgo, so the theme music speeds up.  ;D ;D

Sorry....nothing done on the MST3K Discussion Board interests me.

The MSTie Formerly Known as Wild Rebel

I hear ya, the clique jumped me over there when I tried to joke on a topic, and when I retorted in kind to the lone female, the males of the group fantasized about leaving the Shire and banned me

What a joke

Love MST3K but half of the fanbase are warped

Anyway watched Undead

Merlin's Shop of Mystical Wonders - Still one of my favorite episodes. The riffing is top notch, and the host segments (particularly the bots reviewing each other) are great. The movie, while bad and goofily stitched together, is oddly watchable. Particularly how crazy (and innapropriate for little kids) the Bob Jackass part is.

Radar Secret Service.   Of all the mst films this may possibly be the most difficult one for me to get through.  I have failed three times now to get through the episode is one sitting.  It took three nights to get through it this time.  The boys do their best and there are plenty of laughs but how many jokes can you come up with about the same boring driving scenes  and the same radar scenes and the same helicopter scenes over and over and over and.......give me Batwoman any day over this headache inducing non-motion picture mess.

Looking on IMBD for more Steckler films I see where Margie was married to the man himself.  No wonder she was cast, she was sleeping with the director.

The Sadist is a good movie, I enjoyed it.  I think if Arch had stuck with those types of movies he could have been a star.  That face is made of horror films.  I also enjoy Wild Guitar.

That chick who plays Roxie in Eegah plays his girlfriend in The Sadist.  She's good too, quite creepy.  And the line "watch out for snakes" can be thrown in very easily at the end.

The Sword and the Dragon

I'd never seen it.  Really good one.  But Kevin Murphy lied in his interview on the DVD of Jack Frost, he said Jack Frost was the only one of the Russian movies to have a troika, there's several troikas in this movie.

Seriously though, it's probably tough to remember everything about every movie, they've done so many of them.
Title: Re: I Just Finished Watching...
Post by: Johnny Unusual on August 29, 2012, 06:42:25 AM
The Russian movies are simultaneously great and dumb.  It's sort of like the Russian equivolent of the Godzila movies: the dumb aspects are part of their charm, but I think the affection goes beyond that.  They also have lavish production design, a large scope (certainly better realized than any of MST3k movies) and are culturally fascinating adaptations of old legends and folk tales.  At the same time, there's terrible dubbing, broad performances, generally weird stuff and just plain goofiness.

I think Jack Frost is the best of them, but I also love the unfairly titled Magic Voyage of Sinbad (which does no culture any favours).

Agreed! And unlike most all of the rest of the MST3K movies (except the ones where two TV episodes were mashed together), you still get the sense that this is based on something much larger than the movies, so this is the cliffs notes version, and maybe a lot of the questions and issues would be answered in the full thing.

413 - Manhunt in Space (w/ a General Hospital short)

The short itself was a bit dull, 60s soap operas had not nearly enough evil twin brother having sex with the daughter of the man he murdered while suffering from amnesia after escaping from mafia thugs intent on keeping his incriminating evidence under wraps or something... But there are a surprising amount of riffs that had me laughing out loud... "Let me punch you in the sternum to simulate the pain..."  This isn't something that will ever be considered one of their top short efforts, but it was still a breeze to get through with a good amount of laughs.

The movie is some classic 50s sci-fi cheese... and despite a goofy plot... it was mostly fun to watch. The riffing isn't rapid fire gut busters, but plenty of really funny riffs hit the mark. By the final theater segment, the silly charm of the source movie had started to wear off... and I started zoning out on the laptop doing other things... But overall, this was a pretty painless source movie viewing.... and the riffing provided consistent chuckles. Winky is a great source of riff fuel in the great tradition of second banana/sidekick types providing excellent fodder for Joel/Mike and the Bots.

Host segments had some highlights, The Mads invention of bean bag pants had me laughing... although that might be just because they looked like they were wearing huge scrotums. A hexfield visit from Winky (played by Mike) was a highlight as well. Overall, I'd consider it a worthy viewing... glad I finally checked it out on Netflix, one more of the few remaining "new to me MST3K" episodes falls off the list.

One of my favorite things about MST is how they use these old songs.  A lot of songs that are obscure, songs many people wouldn't remember

In this episode as he's hooking up Emmett the worm he is singing "Lights Out" by Peter Wolf under his breath.  I love this song, still have it on 45.

Just saw Kitten with a Whip for the first time. The riffs were hilarious and the movie was surprisingly compelling. The acting was a little bit off, and the antagonists REALLY date the movie, but I found myself genuinely rooting for the bland proagonist to find a way out of the ever-growing mess. It was almost comedic the way all the wrong people showed up at all the wrong times, and I felt sorry for the guy.

Fun episode, overall.

Love how Tom just can't handle all the half naked naked chicks and passes out a couple of times.   The whole movie is good.  And the host segment with Brain Guy doing Flashdance is classic.  And Bill looks pretty good in those tights.

Also looked it up and saw where Bra Bra, or Babs, is famous for shagging Freddy Mercury.  I guess before he came out.  Evidently they were very close, staying friends.

Space Mutiny, my 10 points (in no particular order):

1) Recycled footage from Battlestar Galactica (surprisingly not even a word about that)
2) Girl gets killed, back at her post the next scene. "I think it's nice of you to give that dead girl another chance"
3) Railing Kills galore!
4) Women in the future don't wear pants!
5) The many names of David Ryder (Bob Johnson, oh wait...)
6) John Philip Law (Kalgon) looks like he's trying to give himself an aneurysm to get out of the movie.
8) Sting, Debbie Reynolds, and God (Santa Claus)

Overdrawn at the Memory Bank

This has slowly become one of my favorites.  But I have a lot of favorites.

Couldn't stand it when it was on Sci-fi.  Then for a long time didn't even watch it when I got my DVD collection.  So many familiar faces in it too, other that Raul of course...

The Thing That Couldn't Die - A fun episode, great riffing, but the movie drags it down.

I personally think this is a good movie unrifffed.  MST just makes it funny.  Susan Gordan was a good little actress and I like the fact they went easy on her.  Also wish Joel showed his legs more.  He had nice legs.

And thanks to IMDB I now know the young priest was Merritt Stone and the Resteraunt guy Gene Roth.  So mystery solved.

Gamera Vs. Gaos

Man, those Gamera movies are interminable.  How do you make giant monster fights so dull?  Season 3 is when the show really came into it's own, but I think the guys never got the rhythm of Japanese movies until much later (I think after season 3 we don't see Japanese movies again until season 8 with the wonderful Prince of Space and Invasion of the Neptune Men.  Time of the Apes is actually pretty OK, although it helps that like Untamed Youth, I'm actually kind of into the story (though it is presented in a largely boring way).  But these Gamera films are a pain (OK, Guiron is actually very watchable thanks to an already ridiculous movie made even more ridiculous with odd dubbing.)  But this one is possibly the second most dull episode after the one with Barugon.

So nice to have this on DVD and not have to watch it online.  Great movie on its own.  And the special effects...especially the big hairy legs crack me up.

I wish more Bert I Gordon movies were on Blu Ray.  I tend to like every one I see.  Sure, they're cheesy as hell.  But they're entertaining at least.  More than you can say for a lot of movies being released now.

Where has this movie BEEN all my life!? There are certain elements that come to mind when I think of the term "B-Movie." Wooden acting, bad special effects, incomprehensible plot, Bad costumes... This movie hits every single one of them perfectly, and that delights me. Bonus points for the squeaky-voiced robot! This is the archetypal B-Movie right here. I'm surprised it doesn't come up more in "worst riffed movies" conversations.

From the new set, Village of the Giants and The Deadly Mantis.  While I've seen Deadly Mantis before, Village of the Giants I hadn't, and I add it into my growing pile of "Why was there ever a time I was not a fan of Mike?"-episodes that I should've really watched a long time ago (I, too, as a child, fell victim to the 'I don't know about this new host' before I snapped out of my idiocy).

Favorite lines:
Deadly Mantis: But I've got a Mantis in my Pantis!
                        The half-frozen remains of Frosty the Snowman, the victim of a vicious pistol whipping.
Village of the Giants: The ravages of Osgood-Schlatter's Disease! (Something about the obscurity plus Beau's face in this scene are just too much.)

Fugitive Alien (310) - I like the ktma cut but this is the superior episode by far. The ktma cut seems to take forever to get through, even though it's enjoyable, where as this one flew by pretty quickly. The only thing I missed was the 'magnetic fields forever' bit, but then that's what makes the first one worth watching.

Just been watching all the Gamera episodes. Not trying to start an arguement or anything but while I've watched most of Mike's shows I haven't watched a lot of Joel's episodes in the past as the few I did watch didn't really grab me ( I think they were very early KTMA/ Season 1 eps, where they were still finding their feet ). But I loved the Gamera riffs and will definitely be seeking out more of Joel's episodes now. I love the kind of paternal relationship he has with the bots. Probably my favourite part of these riffs is when Tom loses it and just wants to kill ichi/ kenny.

I'm officially going to watch through the entire series. Between Netflix, Amazon, and YouTube most all of them are available.

Going through the full episode list I have seen 74 (maybe a few more than that) of the 197 episodes. Not too shabby, but some of the originals are really hard to watch.

Today I watched both Fugitive Alien and Fugitive Alien 2 which I liked quite a bit. Now I know where the whole, "he tried to kill me with a forklift!" joke comes from.

Currently watching The Painted Hills episode right now. About 55 minutes in Lassie (sorry, Shep) outright attacks the bad guy and apparently tries to kill him. Why the hell is this movie not over right now?! Why would the dog stop attacking him, go away, and then not only come back but accept food from him? I may not buy in real life how smart people keep saying dogs are, but in the context of the movie he is supposed to be (and apparently PSYCHICLY LINKED WITH JONATHAN! That's the only way Shep could have know he was sick near the beginning of the movie).
That being said, I am enjoying all the riffs about the dog dying Tom is ding and how distressed Crow gets.
This also has one of my favorite host segments, when Crow is an ingot. The goofiness of the puppets and Crow enthusiasm at the end of "Yeah, I want me. Yes, I'm mine, all mine!" just kills me.

Painted Hills is a favourite of mine.  It's such an odd movie with an even odder climax.  It's like a particularly bizarre episode of Alfred Hitchcock Presents.

Watching the Hercules and the Captive Women, and I noticed that for once the DVD menus don't have that SHITTY CGI! Woohoo! I know it's crude 2D animation, but it still feels much more in keeping with the show and the excellent DVD cover art.

Wow. Just got done watching the Horrors of Spider Island episode. Yeah, I think I'm going to go watch something less sleazy. On Redtube.

I watched Prince of Space tonight. One of my favorites.

This time, I realized, Krankor is a lot like General Ross in the Incredible Hulk comics. His incompetence is only matched by his inability to comprehend the uselessness of his weapons.

Currently watching The Projected Man. This is some really good riffing. Lots of silly thing for them to grab ahold of and run with. I particularly like the Britishisms "Don't make me have to pop on down to the larder and unseal a tin of whoopass." and the obsession with knickers.
I also notice that it's only because the Patricia and Chris interfere that his self projecting fails, so they are really the cause of this whole mess.

  Watching episode 206 Ring of Terror. I don't remember anything about this episode, but I must have seen it at some point, because I do remember the host segment where Joel dissects the vacuum cleaner. Joel is actually very good in that segment as the dry, casual doctor.
  The biggest thing about this movie is that WOW these actors are old to be playing college kids! Some of the guys are starting balding for crying out loud. The riffing never lets up on the old jokes, and it just keeps being funny.
  Also, 47 minutes into the episode, and NOTHING HAS HAPPENED plotwise in the movie yet!

EDIT: Okay, so I finished it. This movie truly rivals Starfighters in NOTHING HAPPENING! Seriously, a bunch of people watch an autopsy and a guy gets scared by a lame fraternity prank. THAT'S IT!
Also, is this the only episode where the short (or in this case serial episode) is after the feature movie, not before it?

Yeah, I was wondering if it was just me because even after I had seen it, I wasn't sure about Starfighters plot aside from people making small talk and pilots running flight missions.

I think Starfighter was made for the USAF as a training film for pilots...primarily about safety.
