    Just got back from MST3K Live with Joel, Jonah and the bots tearing a horrible movie (The Brain) to shreds! It was glorious and really fun to see Joel back in riffing action. It was so good I hope they make an actual episode out of it when the tour is done. It would be an instant classic. If you have the opportunity to go I really recommend it.

    Also, Joel announced the annual Turkey Day live stream will be tomorrow (11/18) since season 12 premiers on Thanksgiving. So, FYI.

    Yeah, I really wish they'd make the live shows into episodes, even if it's just footage from the shows and not a completely redone "studio" version. I missed out on the bonus show both times they've come to town, so it'd be nice to see those at least.

    That's one thing that keeps me going back to RiffTrax. I can get copies of their live shows.

    This was a tour so I can see them not wanting to film each one. Although it's easy enough to designate one show as the official record and get that one.

    Mac and Me was amazing. Not the movie, that was the horrifying mess I remember, but the jokes were good to great the whole way through.

    Gotta go do turkeyday stuff now, but I'll be binging the rest later.

    confusion. i'm 100% serious. they bank on people accidentally buying their films or watching them for sheer schlock value. they know exactly what they're about.

    And then MST3K comes along and probably pays for the movie cost in usage fees.

    Fell asleep late this morning while watching mac and me. Woke up to a horrible conan knockoff it looked like. Wonder how bad the movie will truly be.

  • Martini_PhilosopherMartini_Philosopher Registered User regular
    They did it. They made the perfect riff.
    The countdown in Atlantic Rim. I had to pause it I was laughing so hard. My wife thought I was going to hurt myself.

    Only 1203 and the riffs are cutting, timely, and overall great. A real step up from last season and I really loved last season's.

    Getting through Mac and Me is going to be difficult. Even with the hilarious riffs this movie makes me legit nauseous. Hell must be populated by whistling aliens.

    I wanted them to show the Japanese edit of Mac & Me that starts the gunfight at the end.



    Too be honest, the episode kinda stunk until they got to McDonald's and then it got good. People forget that for as known as Paul Rudd & Me is, it's a shit movie with a lot of crap besides the freaky aliens.



    And Atlantic Rim feels like it's kind of cheating so far, using Aslyum movies, they're bad on purpose that's not riff worthy. Even if they were able to buy that film license for a buck, go spend it on a soda or something. A Coca Cola, or a delicious McDonald's Big Mac.

    Mac and Me had my brother and I in absolute hysterics. It’s been a long time since either of us have laughed like that.

    They can go after films that aren't deliberately awful?

    I didn't think asylum films were deliberately awful. They have deliberately similar titles to Hollywood hits and are bad b movies, but I didn't think they set out to make bad movies. Just low budget knockoffs .

    Excessively low budget knockoffs.

    These are people who make Roger Corman proud but unworthy to be hired to work for him.

    Stuff like Sharknado is intentionally bad. Atlantic Rim is just bad by virtue of coattail riding while being bereft of talent or funding.
