Every Day, MST3K

Watch Out For Snakes!

One I Have Yet To Watch

If ever there was an episode of MST3K that piqued my interest, it has to be Red Zone Cuba. I have heard many horrible, terrible things about it – even from Mike Nelson himself – but have still never seen it. I am making it my duty, as an American citizen, to view this horrible movie this weekend. One of the things that I have constantly heard about it, is that it is just so dull that it is hard to even sit through. As a long time viewer, I have seen some movies which were dull and they all turned out to be worse than they really are, because the dullness of the actual movie drags down the riffing as well. I’m afraid that this is the case with this movie as well, but will find out for sure soon and report back next week about this movie. Well Internet, here goes nothing.

Mystery Science Theater Official Site

HI! I’ve been gone for a bit. But oh well, I’m sure you will all recover… all three of you. Anyway, I’ll try to be updating this a little more often than I have been, but the everyday thing was too much with all the other hullabaloo going on (read – job).

This post is simply about the official MST3K Web site. Have you seen it? I totally forgot there was even still one of these out there. It is run by Jim Mallon (the voice of Gypsy) and it features a riff of the day, teaser trailers and merchandise for sale among other little tidbits. Check it out and keep circulating the tapes!

Poor Riffing

Though it doesn’t happen all that often, there are moments in MST3K’s long history where the riffing on the film has been less than spectacular. I feel that this can be forgiven though, based on the number of bad films they had to view and the amount of time that they spent trying to figure out what would work and what wouldn’t. If I had to choose a poorly riffed film though, my choice would go to Hamlet. Not only is this a German version of a Shakespeare play, it is also in black and white and utterly boring. I’m not a fan of Shakespeare to begin with, but even MST3K couldn’t spice it up enough for me to keep from falling asleep. If you want to, here is a link to watch.

Whoops.

As you may have noticed… or not since no one really reads this 😛 I didn’t adhere to the actual title of this blog and post something yesterday. Oh well, sue me why don’t ya!! Anyway, just take a look at the new box set I’m picking up later this month and be satisfied won’t you? Linky-dinky.

My Amazon Wish List

Here are some random things that have to do with MST3K that are on Amazon, and that I want.

Volume 5: Need this because it contains some great movies. Not only does it have Time Chasers (one of my all time faves and destined to become a classic), it also contains a hidden gem in Boggy Creek II. Apparently, Boggy Creek I was just a little too high brow for The Mads to send up the umbilicus.

Volume 10.2: Simply put, this contains the film Giant Spider Invasion. Go Packers! Woo, Packers won the Super Bowl! Also, Volume 10.2 contains The Giant Gila Monster, whereas Volume 10 contains Godzilla vs. Megalon instead. Just as an FYI for ya’ll.

Lastly, this poster from the movie. MST3K: The Movie poster, would complete my geeky, nerdy life and make me smile whenever I laid mine eyes upon it. If only I could get it signed as well.

A Not So Short, Short

When talking about MST3K, you must always mention the shorts that they do. These are done for two reasons: 1. They are hilarious. And 2. They are filler for when a movie isn’t long enough to fill up a full hour and a half. The shorts that MST3K have done range from a day on the farm, to learning how to be a better leader and Chevy salesman. My personal favorite is one that almost didn’t see the light of day until it was released in the volume 7 box set. It is called Assignment: Venezuela and is about a man who moves to the country because he works for one of the big oil companies. In this short, he narrates a letter to his family at home about all of the lovely accommodations, the people, the city and how narrow or wide things are. Truly worth your time and a click. Also, if that link doesn’t work for you, it is in three parts on YouTube as well.
