We should count how many riffs started with "Look at this...."

This one and Godzilla Vs. Megalon I have yet to stay awake through. The riffings are superb but I just start nodding off at least halfway through. Maybe I should try it again with an espresso one of these days.

Mickey Rourke + Eric Roberts? That would either be The Pope of Greenwich Village or The Expendables.

Towards the end, the guy shouting "Repent!" with the It's The End sign gets knocked down and trampled, presumably to death. It's a nice little bit of poetic irony. However, his death is done in such a rush of quick, very bad edits that it really makes me wonder why Leonard Maltin liked this movie.
Mike even points this out a minute or two later: "You know, I think the editing philosophy of this movie was 'don't stay on anything too long, it doesn't look good enough.'"

Because of the host segment I actually picked up the Malton's Video and movie guide. For those wondering, yes, Gorgo has an entry.

Frankly, I was disappointed that Mike crushed Nate the Clown. I was really looking forward to seeing the Nanitino Family perform. He always did hate clowns; it was no accident.

Plus, the music is from a symphony, not a synthesizer *g* and it was actually considered for an Academy award!

I still think Gogo is better than the Godzilla stuff coming out of Japan. At least Gorgo has a plot line, it does have some decent actors that try to put some depth into their characters, and focuses more on the humans than the monsters. Godzilla movies typically come in two varieties. !. Found another monster. 2. Aliens want to take over Japan. Why just Japan, God knows. Then some guy is a big rubber suit tears down model houses and pretends to fight with another guy in a big rubber suit. No character development, no plot, well ,if there is one it makes silk look like heavy ship mooring lines, and just flat out bad acting (if any.)

Ah. Another "Creature Feature" gem from my youth. I actually have the unriffed version of this on DVD along with a few others that were on this show. Guess I need to work on getting the riffed versions now.

It's "Waiting For Gorgo" that puts this one over the top for me. Of course, the Forrester-Maltin tete-a-tete helps, too.

“Gorgo?! Oh blast! Alright, back in the coach lads.” And with that the disappointed London chapter of the Torgo Fan Club waiting in line at Dorkin’s Circus; sadly removed their knee humps and meticulously sweat stained hats, lowered their crooked staffs, and retired to a local pub for a bitter night of sulking.

The boys were like Beavis & Butthead. Through the whole dorkin movie they kept making fun of that guys name. How many dorkin times were they going to rehash that? They just kept dorkin with him! Dorkin jerks...

When Gorgo first arises from the sea and whacks the men in boats, the riff Tom gives is AWESOME: "Paddy cake, paddy cake." Get it? Paddy? 'Cause they're Irish! Wrong, I know, but so so funny.

...Wait... the movie's called "Gorgo" and not a SINGlE mention of Torgo? What maddness is this!? Fine I'll do it myself

*kid tries to free gorgo, gets yelled at* " There is nothing to fear, sir. The Master likes him. nothing will happen to him. The Master likes him...
"This thing should be Extinct!" "Extinct? No sir. Not the way you know it..."
*smashes building* "Oh, I'm so clumsy... I was better off with my huge knees...."

Okay, hang on. The title of this picture shows up in "The Touch Of Satan." The whole "I am Gorgo and Mormo...blah blah blah." These odd kinds of connections keep showing up in many of the films. The Alan Hale connection, for example. It might be a conspiracy or I might need to stop watching MST3K when I am seriously sleep deprived.
