Gammera The Invincible. I liked the MST3K version better. It had better riffing and Joel explicitly said that he liked the movie, and even though I'm sure Mike and Bill love GTI as much as Sandy Frank's distribution of Gamera, Sandy Frank's version was in color and had anglicized names, which made it more digestible (and paradoxically more riffable).

Gammera The Invincible - despite its popularity, the MST version was never a real knockout for me. Good, with some top notch skits, but not brilliant. So for me, this one isn't the weak sister of the two. I like getting a different version of the movie, and of course the new quips. Maybe not a complete laugh-riot, but fun and funny.

Also Mind Ripper and Honor and Glory

And a bunch of shorts. The funniest... A Day with Fireman Bill, Six Murderous Beliefs and What Mary Jo Wanted (with MJ and Bridget)

And with the current weekend sale I pretty much cleared out my wishlist. I picked up 19 Trax (features and shorts) so plenty to look forward to.

...but I really wish that we'd get more "just the jokes" of bad movies like this instead of just Star Wars movies.

Reign of Fire actually spends a couple minutes referencing Star Wars too!  ;D ;D

I decided to look at the past 20 Just the Jokes riffs to see how that criticism holds up. There are only 3, but that reaches back to the past 6 years. They really don't release Just the Jokes often enough imo. My guess is they make more money with VODs, so I can't really blame them.

I finished Yor, Hunter From the Future today. I watched it back to back and the gym with a merging of the MST3K and Rifftrax Live Space Mutinies. I'm basically a strong man now.

So, my friend has a new TV that included the rifftrax network thing. They saw Fun in Balloonland for the first time, which we all loved. Which was then followed by Rollargator which opens with
"Rollargator, because we didn't think we could get you to watch Fun in Balloonland either."

Whoever decided on the play order was a genius.

Mothra - The disc I have is the Japanese release, so obviously that wouldn't work... but I did find a copy in English - and I pretty much got it synched up from the start. So no adjustments, just kicked back and enjoyed. I liked it a lot at the start, but felt it faded down the stretch (or maybe I just got tired). Wish I'd have been able to have made it to the theater and saw it with a crowd.

Naturally A Girl - I was in stitches start to finish. Killer work from B&MJ.

I also picked up Beyond Christmas and Deadly Instincts, so I have more from the ladies to look forward to.
