You know, it occured to me, when they turned on the translator, to wonder whether their names were French in the Japanese version. I know in space they speak French, but maybe their names were Russian. Hm.

So it's no secret that I'm just a wee bit of a lusty Mike fangirl, but seeing him playing the piano and singing the Gamera song just made me lose it. Stop being so amazing, Mike, I CAN'T HANDLE IT.

that riff near the beginning - "No, that's hard to say" Seems like it's pretty hard to dub, too - has to be one of the all-time classic riffs and one of the best simple examples of this show's timeless delight.

Well, I think it's clear that this film was the product of a junior school challenge to write a script for a film. And basically a bunch of 8-10 year olds competed like crazy .. Shame and Suicides were high but in the end a movie script was created by some 30 students, polished by Coleman Francis and submitted to a movie studio who then said "Meh!, what's the worst that can happen?"
Even without the dubbing I imagine this film is pretty fucking brainless. I know it's aimed at kids and such but damn! It doesn't have to suck such large donkey balls .. Yet it does, and with considerable talent and practise!!
I just love the way Gamera just happens to show up .. Like "oh hey, here's Gamera". Seems the movie makers realized after filming a bunch of stuff that they'd forgotten to add the principle character.
So here's to the room full of chimps that wrote this load of bollocks! We salute you .. And then flush your head down a toilet!

On my recent viewing, it occurred to me that the reason "Brother" is so concerned with traffic accidents is that the kids' absent father perished in one. If so, it's a nifty (though poignant) bit of screenwriting.

Of course, it could also just be a residue of the sandyfrankization process.

Holy fuck .. the dubbing in this film is just ... wowwww! SO BAD!!!! I can only HOPE that the actual Japanese dialogue isn't this fucking stupid. Just WoW!!

This film actually causes blisters, boils and uncontrollable flatulence; has been linked to disorders of the nervous system and bowels.

Just to explain the obscure joke near the end. "Stop her, she's got my keyboard!" That's a reference to Mike. He had an ex-girlfriend who took his keyboard and never gave it back. How the people watching at home were supposed to get this is beyond me and I only know because of Google. So nice watching this show in 2014. It must have been frustrating to not get a reference and have no way to look it up instantly.

Once, about 2 years ago my Dad turned on the t.v. and "Gamera vs. Guiron" happend to be on at just the right moment and I could not for the love of God stop myself from singing my favorite MST3K song/riff:
♫ See the kids head to their fates,
They'll disappear into the woods,
It will be days before they're found,
Corn-job will be blamed. ♫
I got a startled look from my Dad & a comment of "that's dark!"

I think Sandy Frank is pretty miserable as a director/producer, but compared to whoever did the dubbing for this Gamera film, he looks like a genius! The dubbing is AWFUL! ...which makes the riffing better, of course. :)

It's been a while since I've watched this one. I forgot just how bad the dub is. (I usually keep it on in the background when I'm doing something else so the audio is the focus.) The line reading could not have been. More unnatural. Or distracting.

In this film, the boys fly to the planet Terra, where alien babes explain to them that the planet is exactly opposite the Earth, so out of our view behind the sun. In Stranded in Space, Neil crash lands on a planet called Terra that Earth can't see because it's exactly on the other side of the sun. Interesting coincidence!

This movie is perfectly summed up by these four lines of dialogue, delivered by the same character, in succession:

"Let's break the handles so they won't be able to come back again. Hooray, now they can't come back again! Doesn't it feel good, to know they can never come back again? How did you get back, since we broke the handles?"

- Anybody know what's up with Crow's mouth moving all the time when he doesn't say anything? Is this Crow\Trace doing a nonverbal riff on the lousy dub, or something else?
- Lmao @ Crow's arms falling off. My fave is how they just keep on' riffin. Tragic missed opportunity for a Monty Python gag though. "A flesh wound!"

This one is by far the best of the Gamera movies. Between the football head alien space babes with southern drawls, to the Swiss Army Head villain, to just giving up on the grownups completely, and doing a Gamera movie that focused on the kids, and giving up any pretense of it being an adult movie, to the "Hirohito Gamera" song, everything about this one works.
