    Holy crap Avalanche is boring...

    Are you saying you felt nothing for the old lady who got trapped in an avalanche and then suffered from strokecirrhosishypothermia and then experienced fiery doom from an ambulance careening out of control and plummeting 80 feet to doom? Because even without riffing that made me laugh out loud from the shear inanity.
    The lady is alive and well; why are you driving like a maniac on snow-covered mountain roads, ambulance driver dude?

    The payoff of the ambulance sequence was absolutely hilarious, honestly. From the ambulance driver being a former rally car driver to "she died how she lived" it was just fantastic.

    That happens after 75% of the movie is over.

    The Beast of Hollow Mountain suffered from the same problem.

    Ha, that South Korean monster movie was so weird. (I am still sad at the lack of StarCraft jokes :P)
    CAPSULE!!

    Also it seems my name ended up in the credits of The Loves of Hercules. Which is ok I guess, but I'm still mad at the Js for screwing me out of StarCrash's credits (still my favorite one so far). Did have some good lines tho :P
    "How is that river purple?"
    "Purple rain..."

    "I must have slept through the Greek mythology class that went over Sasquatches..."

    I don't know what's worse about Pumaman- his costume, the ludicrously bad flying effects, or his theme music.

    Also, Donald Pleasance must have REALLY needed a paycheck.

    I'm waiting to watch the new series with so.e friends but have watched some old eps to whet my hunger.

    Re-watched Manos last night, and I had forgotten precisely how awful it is. There's several instances where everyone literally just stand around looking at each other while ominous music plays and Torgo fidgets.

    Finished the 3rd ep last night. Time Travelers was merely bad to mediocre, instead of awful. Pleasantly surprised after the previous Ib Melchior movie. They even didn't completely flub some of the science, like the speed of light transmission from alpha centauri.

    Cry Wildness on the other hand...

    Never have i so badly wanted a child to be eaten by a bear.

    BTW, maybe it is my mythology OCD but it was constantly driving me crazy in The Loves of Hercules that they were interchanging Greek and Roman mythology. Like, they talk about Zeus but then call Hercules "the son of Jupiter" all the time. I guess I shouldn't expect much from a movie that bad :P

    A LOT of people named Zach backed this kickstarter, apparently.

    We're reading Rifts. You should too. You know you want to. Now With Ninjas!

    I noticed a rather large number of people named Brian in the kickstarter list. Now I wonder which name had the most.

    Cry Wilderness was quite enjoyable, Time Travelers was that special kind of awful scifi movie that I love on MST3k, Avalanche had some of the best lines so far but Beast of Hollow Mountain was a real treat.

    Also great was Tom Servo and Crow breaking out the drones in Avalanche, and really every time they interact with the action on the screen I've liked.

    The Hoff is like.... 18 in this. The special effects are 20 years out of date. Ladies in bikinis all the time.

    Truly a masterwork of cinema.

    Edit: it seems like the bowchicka bow wow music should start any moment and then boning down, but they forgot that part.

    Do you think Starcrash's marketing strategy was to confuse your grandmother into taking you?

    Because it is that movie with the lasers and spaceman that you really wanted to see. Thanks Grandma!

    That whole movie was a joke, and the punchline was getting to watch an old lady get saved and then promptly Dukes-of-Hazard-ed off a cliff to crash, explode, burn, drown, and possibly freeze if she was still somehow alive long enough for that.

    Even without riffing, that part was hilarious.

    End of season spoilers:
    Well, uh, that was a thing. Eaten by a Reptilicus.

    I don't know that I care all that much for the mad plot. The old mad plots worked best as an excuse to be kitschy, and this "media empire" thing seems more cynical.

    The series has potential to get up on its own legs, but I do hope they break a bit out of the shadow of the previous seasons for season 12.

    Last few weeks I marathoned all the 'good seasons' and also went back to the later ones I liked. I forgot how much of my childhood was giggling like a madman as they mocked Gamera.

    I'm only on ep one of the new shiz but I'm really liking it. I'm just gonna need someone to copy these to VHS so I can get over how weird it is to see this show in HD.

    I liked it okay, except for that ending.
    I mean, they should at least have left it ambiguous what happens to him. Maybe he gets swallowed whole and unharmed and escapes out the back end or something. But with everyone running around going, "He's dead!" then cut to credits, it just ends the show in a weird place that retroactively affects one's mindset when watching any previous episode.

    OK, Starcrash was a treat. Absolutely loved the episode. Amazing to think that came out the year after Star Wars.

    I don't think that quite applies in this case.
    It's nothing to do with how the science works, or any of the other logical inconsistencies brought on by pretending a low-budget puppet show is a mad scientist experiment. It's like if, at the end of Mitchell, instead of landing safely in the Australian outback, Joel's escape pod was shot down over the Sea of Japan, it spun in, and there were no survivors. That might have put a damper on things. Yes it's just a show and Joel Hodgson continues to live on unharmed in Minneapolis, but having him pointlessly die would also probably have made the Joel vs. Mike net arguments even fiercer.

    Y'know
    He's not dead simply because a pack of bumbling idiots proclaimed it in a scattered panic. No one except Max even knew that robot existed.

    Mia Farrow popping the escape hatch on that ambulance really tickled me. Peace out, ex in law, good luck with that cliff!

    So, he's alive because Kinga and Max are bumbling idiots? The robot monster that ate him and is seen gnawing on him whole didn't count?

    It could just all be a plot to introduce a new host in season 12, but as it is, every indication is this character's dead and personally I don't think they should have gone that route. There are less gruesome ways to cancel a wedding.
