My copy should come either today or Monday, so I am ready.

Rumor has it that "trading card" this time is MJP.

Yes it is... I got mine on Friday I think. I enjoyed it quite a bit, it seems like it's taking them less time to get "casual-sounding" and not so much scripted with each release.

I followed it up with The Leech Woman, it makes a nice double-feature.

Patiently waiting on my copy.  Ordered it as soon as the DVD option went live.  Still not here though.

Huh.  The delay in deliveries probably doesn't bode well for those of us overseas...   :-\

My copy arrived in Colorado on Saturday.  Pretty decent riff, without the "dear lord, what happened to the film?" problems of  the last release's ending.

Host segments were pretty lackluster though.

I'm not a fan of their host segments either. They seem to fall flat every time.

Yeah, I think the "time outs" need to either be a bit longer or a bit shorter, but right now they seem to be at precisely the imperfect length.

I got my Wasp Woman imported to my door yesterday and though not quite Swap Diamonds it sure does have a lot of padding in it. At the beginning as they cut back and forth to the old guy doddering down the hill it began to dawn on me that this was a Corman movie. Thankfully it sped up a wee bit as it continued.
I loved that the wasp jelly could turn guinea-pigs into rats. You would've thought a scientist would've noticed that.

I thought the riffing was great but I did notice the odd "punch in/out" riff that always sounds sort of wrong. But if anything that reminded me of mst3k a wee bit more.
And now Oozing Skull can be imported I'm patiently awaiting it too.

I watched it last night and.. well .. Maybe I just need to watch it again to give a better review cause it was ok.. :-\

It had it's moments, but it still seemed a bit scripted to me.. :(

I didn't care much for the first episode, but I loved the second. I was really thinking that they had found their swing again. I was really looking forward to The Wasp Woman, but it sort of fell flat. It was entertaining and the riffing was decent, but it wasn't nearly as funny as the second episode. The host segments really ... really ... ugh ...

I'd watch it again, but it's not as good as a RiffTrax.

Yeah, apart from a couple of decent laughs, I felt that the whole thing was a little flat.  They all seem a little too relaxed... someone needs to get angry!

I was wondering about that too.   Maybe Corman should have had a zoologist on staff during the making of this film.

We watched it last night. We thought it was good, but far from great. Not nearly as good as either of the last two episodes.

One line that KILLED us though:

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

We both sat for about twenty seconds before we got it and then laughed so hard we had to pause it.

Anyway, it was fine, but not the best. Looking forward to #4.
