Name the BEST MST3Ked movie ever
« on: March 23, 2007, 01:09:35 PM »
This isn't a question of the best episode of MST3K, or a "so bad its good" movie. What movie shown on Mystery Science Theater 3000 was closest to being good on its own?

I could actually do Pod People on its own. It's like a darkly tragic ET... :^)

Even though it's a mess and a complete rip off of the actual Bond movies, I still quite enjoy Operation 007.  Most of the spy movies they did I quite liked...

Hmm.. the least bad MSTed movie...

Probably Space Mutiny. It's hard to think of a decent MST movie even when the criteria is "the least bad".

"This Island Earth" actually wasn't bad, certainly not to the accustomed MST3K level.  But that's a special case.

"Space Travelers," in its theatrical incarnation as "Marooned," actually won an Oscar for special effects.  And how bad can a movie with Gregory Peck and Gene Hackman be?

You could probably make a case for a couple of the Godzilla and Gamera movies, the earlier in their respective series, the better.

I always kinda like Quest of the Delta Knights and The Phantom Planet. THere's probably an actual good movie that they did that I can't remember right now. This Island Earth is kind of a classic, but so is the line "If you're hands were made out of metal that would mean something"

"This Island Earth" for sure but of the episodes, that's hard.  I'm trying to think of one I'd want to see on it's own.  Diabolik was actually somewhat enjoyable but I wouldn't call it a "good" movie.  More like  cheesy movie.  Hmm.  I think "Clonus" could have been good.  Does that count?

I have to admit, I'm a bit partial to "Boggy Creek."  Those are my peeps in that film.  When I see the dorks in the razorback hats, it reminds me of dear family and friends.  We're so civilized here.

I think I'm inclined to go with Jack Frost or The Day the Earth Froze. They're not so much bad as a bit foreign and oddball. Easy to enjoy, but easy to make fun of.

Without riffing, I thought Space Mutiny would have been really entertaining in a "so bad, it's good" kind of way...

From the "so mediocre, it's not awful" side of things.... I liked Clonus, I Accuse My Parents and Girl In Lovers Lane. Those are the three that I can remember being somewhat interested in the plot the first time through.

I saw Boggy Creek II before it was MiStied and thought it wasn't a terrible film, just obviously the work of an amateur.  It's at least technically competent, whilst something like Monster A-Go-Go or Manos struggles with even the simplest of things.  The film even manages to look pretty good in places.

the places it fails to look good would be those stick people they hired to be the females in the movie.

The Space Children would be dull but watchable without any mst action, it seems like a crappy adaptation of a decent short story.

Puma Man would be hilarious even without Mike and the bots.

Diabolik splits the difference- it would be both hilariously weird and unironically watchable on its own. Also, Ennio Morricone soundtrack.
