Resident Evil The Final Chapter is coming out January 2017. Watch the trailer that's out, it's awesome. This is one of my favorite sci fi horror movie series. Milla rocks, looks hot, and is kickass! Anyone out there a fan or own all the movies?

I miss the lad. But happier news, on YouTube they've got a ton of Benny's show, full episodes and skits. I'm surprised because who ever has the rights to his work has been a real nazi and wouldn't allow any of his stuff to stay up for long. If you have a few minutes and need a comedy lift, punch in 1969 S06e02 and watch the first 5 minutes you'll enjoy yourself. At 1:42 in the epoxy they are doing one of my favorite bits, called Pam's People. A spoof on that hippy feel goodery studio sound girl group from early 1970'S, called Pan's People.

Which episode would you recommend for a first-time viewer? The only thing you know about this person is that they've heard about the Reboot, and now they want to see a full episode of "classic" MST3k. (I encourage choosing at least two; a Mike ep and a Joel ep.)

Before I knew about the MST3K Film's behind the scenes info, it just seemed odd to me. The movie was kind of just a higher budgeted episode. The bigger sets are nice and getting to see them walk down the hall-way is also nice. However, there's just some things that prevented the movie from being the movie that it could have been. You know how Joel discusses about those judgemental studio executives? That's pretty much what held the movie back from being as good as it could have been. They wanted a shorter movie, less obscure references, and to change Dr. Forrester's characters. They also ended up cutting two of the best scenes in the movie because of time. The movie isn't the worst thing in the world, but it just is...your average episode just released in theatres. I mean, the jokes are still funny, but it just didn't sit as well as it could have with me. It also didn't with the crew. They said it was one of their worst experiences of their career. Not to mention that they weren't even proud of the product in the end. I just agree with them that it could have been better if they didn't have the studio execs breathing down their necks.


Personal Funniest Riff?

That's right, look at the monkey. And watch out for snakes!
But seriously the question is what is your personal funniest rift you made on a movie? Really any movie made.

My second funniest riff was made on the first Smurfs movie. At the scene where Gargamel summons flies to escape from prison, and I said, "He has become lord of the flies." A friend watching that with me almost peed laughing from that. And my personal funniest was when watching one of the Twilight movies with my Twilight fan family. At the scene where they were on the mountain, and the half naked warwulf guy was standing there in the cold. I riffed there, "Okay seriously you guys. I'm freakin' freezing up here. Somebody throw me a shirt already. Burr." Got laughs from that. Also I was so drunk on wine. Had to get a little drunk to watch any of the Twilight movies. XD

25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Theatre?
2 laughs

1 reply Comment icon

The musical, 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, is a strange show. However, it reminds me of Mystery Science Theatre. Like a lot. You have a basic plot (a bunch of early pubescent students) that are in a spelling bee. How could this be related to MST? Well, you see, this musical is really connected by the smartass comments made by the judges of the spelling bee. They introduce people and read off of their sheet. There's a component to this that makes things more like riffs, though. There is a component where audience members can put in sheets to be IN the show (at least in the original production) where they submit a sheet with their name and some info about them. Then, it's the judge's job to ad-lib jokes coming from the sheet. So, there's ad-libbed riffs and there's scripted riffs. In a comedy musical about a spelling bee. Huh.

"Old" References

Just occurred to me. MST3K was always a mix of current references, what we now call “then-current” references, stuff that was happening in 1996 or whenever -- and old references, like when they’d riff on Ed Sullivan or Elvis or whatever.

So, when Season 11 begins, it’ll likely be the same mix of current and old references -- except the “old” references will be what used to be the current references in the original series.

MYSTie protagonists as Villains.....

I know; I don't often post comments here; most of my verbiage relates to the movie at hand, but this is an observation that suggests a 'Forum Question': Last nite, after watching "Horrors of Spider Island" with you guys, we sat up and watched a couple of old movies on YT. The second one was "The Looters" (about a plane crash in Colorado, with the survivors attempting to get down the mountain, and loot-able loot tempting passengers to larceny). I recognized the villain (before he revealed his intentions) as none other than Secret Agent Super Dragon. 'The Looters' was from 1955, and thus predates SASD by a good 10 years. He did a fine job in 'The Looters', as well (compared to his star-turn SASD).....So, what MYSTie experiment's protagonists do you think would have made good movie-villains?

Still hoping RiffTrax or the new MST3K crew riff this one:
Tammy & the T-Rex (1994)
Because all Hollywood stars should have at least one bad dinosaur movie in their CV. In this case, we have Denise Richards (in her first film), Paul Walker (later of the 'Fast & Furious' franchise) and Terry Kiser (from 'Weekend at Bernies').

Here's the setup. Denise plays Tammy, a cheerleader, who wants to dump her nasty boyfriend and go out with nice Michael (Paul Walker). Old BF Billy Bad is a jealous type, to say the least, which leads to a "testicular standoff" (actual dialogue). Beaten, Billy and his gang plot revenge. They grab Michael, drive him to a local safari park and leave him to the lions. Injured and comatose, Michael is rescued by a park ranger and taken to hospital.

Enter a Mad Scientist (Terry Kiser), looking for a brain to play with. He abducts Michael's body from the hospital and takes it to his lab, where he transplants the brain into an animatronic Tyrannosaurus Rex. Let's face it, this movie was made because they had a robot dinosaur and just kludged a story around it. But what a story!

As movie dinosaurs are wont to, Michael escapes and goes on a vengeful rampage against Billy and his gang. This leads to a policeman reporting "We got two more squished bodies and a one-legged girl over there... she's still kinda good-looking".

Did I mention Byron? Oh, he's Tammy's gay black friend, who fulfils both paper-thin stereotypes as badly as you'd expect. He helps out. A bit.

Eventually the Mikeysaurus' thoughts turn to lurve, so he tries to call Tammy on a payphone. When he fails, the wonderfully fake dino hands check the phone slot for returned coins. I have to say that, in certain shots, the dino looks pretty decent. But only in certain shots. Not this one.

Mikeysaurus tracks down Tammy and explains what has happened through the medium of mime. She resolves to find him a replacement body at the morgue and get the Mad Scientist reanimate with Michael's brain into it. I'm not saying Tammy's shallow, but she does assess the crotchular area of the cadavers before selecting candidates for Michael to choose.

However, Mad Scientist wants his big lizard back and teams up with the Law. Cornered in a barn, Michael is gunned down. He's supposed to be a robot, but can cry and apparently dies when being shot.

A happy ending: Tammy saves Michael's brain and installs it in a jar, with a camera for eyes and other associated equipment. So she's a cheerleader and an expert in cyborg engineering!

In the final scene, Tammy pours some booze into the bowl and does a partial striptease, while the brain bubbles, jiggles, sparks and has a braingasm. True love triumphs.

For some reason Denise Richards doesn't like to talk about this film.

I'm almost finished with my downloading quest! I've been downloading as many episodes as humanly possible so that when they get taken down, I have them. But, I'm almost done with the series. There's some that aren't available, but that's actually few on this site. So, I have up to the beginning of Season 9. So, I just have to finish season 9, go to season ten, finish filling in season 2 because there was something wrong with those files, then I'm going to finally download what we have of Season 0. It's hard to sit through, but I wanna see it.
