I can't stand this Leonardo Da Vinci. But I need him to fix my hidden blades and build me a flying machine.

I just don't find Pearl funny, and this one had far too much of her. In the theater she's even worse

I remember in the nineties the Sci Fi channel had a fantasy week and this movie (unriffed) was one of the ones they showed so I actually got to see this before it was riffed which is the only time that's happened for me.

I love how simple da Vinci makes immortality: "Hey, I watch my back, I stay alive."

It's too bad Mike didn't think of trapping Pearl in her (son's) own experiment... He was clearly on friendly terms with Brain Guy, he could have just told him to bring the bots down and leave Pearl there... what would she have done about it?

At around 10:50 you can see what looks like plastic hangars and at 12:08 plastic curtain rings. At least now I know plastic was around far earlier than 1908.

The host segment where Mike and the guys are getting drunk, gambling, and badmouthing an eavesdropping Pearl, is one of the best of that other networks era.

This is actually an enjoyable movie on its own, but really blossoms with the MST touch. Oddly enough, I had just watched "Starfighters", and the resemblance between Toms quartet and United Servo Academy in uncanny. Incredible. Crazy.

This is the episode that made me like Pearl. I love her in the theater, and she's got some awesome chemistry with the bots. Wish this could have happened more often, or at least for a longer period in this ep!

I'm preparing to write an essay about the sexualization of minors in film and media, and watching this movie has definitely served as a reminder as to why I'm doing this. The treatment of Athena (I think that's her name?) here falls into the spectrum of "inappropriate" on more than a few occasions. You could make some sort of argument for it being a roughly accurate representation of attitudes towards young women at the time, but that "historical accuracy" argument falls to pieces when the one slinging the abuse is a temporally-displaced Leonardo da Vinci...

So, if I'm not mistaken, the delta knights consist of an old dude pretending to be a beggar for some reason, a one-eyed fellow dressed like an old nun, an obese old woman, an Italian artist from the wrong century, and a 12 year old boy. Yep, that's a crack team if there ever was one.

As someone who grew up in the '90s and who still loves the Batman animated series from that era, I have to say it feels weird hearing Ra's al Ghul's voice coming out of David Warner (and yes, I know Mr. Warner is the one who did the voice). He was so awesome on that show, it's really kind of a downer to see him something like this. Excellent riffing, though.

Yet another movie they have done that could have been so much better with a decent budget and director. Also, big fan of David Warner. Another fine actor who made the best of any role he was in, whether it was goofy or serious. Masterful theater actor and grand voice fit for narration and voice over work. His portrayal of Ras'a Ghul in the Batman Animated Series was simply divine. He was also the voice of Jon Irenicus in one of the best CRPGs ever made, Baldur's Gate 2. Yeah. Love me some David Warner. Mad respect.

I'm surprised this movie didn't go as far as to say that DaVinci's inspiration behind the Mona Lisa was because he met Thena. Also, her horse wanted a head-butting challenge at 1:22:15.

I noticed Thena changed out of her swanky new princess garb and back into her old serving wench outfit for the last scene when she showed up saved the guys bacon. Was she showing solidarity for the Order or did they just shoot all the horse riding exteriors that day and did not bother with costume continuity? I guess the answer to that was also sealed forever in the “Lost Storehouse.” Geez.

I think this is the most funny MST3K episode. Yes there are some that are yawners. If I don't find myself laughing out loud in the first 10 minutes I switch movies. Speaking of switching Pearl trades places with Mike just for a short bit and shares a mint with the bots: "Gee, thanks Pearl!" the riffs for her are wonderful:"ewww.. Wizard whizz.. haha. Yes I think the only episode with an instance of pee throwing. Also I could never understand all the movies during this era with the "man/boy friendship" deals. I find it odd and frankly a little creepy. Well, this movie is sort of creepy, I am glad the bots n them got a hold of it.
