Let's be honest-- I'm sure there's at least one mst3k featured movie that you actually liked. Let us come clean... I actually kinda liked Teenagers From Outer Space, The Final Sacrifice and Prince of Space hahaha... I thought Prince was actually a fun little, childish for sure, movie.

If a Hollywood producer hired you to remake any of the "experiments" from MST3K which would it be and what's your vision for it? What director/s style would emulate? Who would you cast in the film? (it can be anyone dead or alive, you have the technology and the funds at your disposal). Would you salvage a stinker? Stay true to source? Turn something into a musical or just fix an ending that drives you insane? It's you're call, Director.

I've been giving this some thought. yeah, go figure...right? ANYway, I've been giving this some thought, so I ask you: What episode, or episodes, typifies each season, 1 thru 10. Not necessarily the most popular, but which experiment/s in each season is/are the Rasion D'etre of that season. In other words; Without this/these eps the season just wouldn't hold together. a for instance: Some may say the true grit of Season 1, is "The Crawling Eye" and/or "Women of the Prehistoric Planet". but for this monkey's bananas it's "The Robot vs. the Aztec Mummy" that is the glue or the potato salad left in the sun, if you will, that infects the rest of the season. Please elucidate (ya like that one?) at least your top choice. take your time. ruminate on your answers. Ok. Ready? Go! I'm still workin on my list, so i'll get back to ya. i'm gonna take a nap. Oh, yeah, this WILL be on the final.

Things that make you go "yikes"! Doesn't necessarily have to be chewing lumps of scenery, but just an actor with bad lines doing badly in a bad movie.

For me, probably Mikey from Teenage Strangler. A strangulated hernia of a performance.

What would be your preferred LAST episode to watch?

This question was posed by Jeff Lingenfelter in the other thread about what episode you'd pick to watch as your first MST experience. He asked, what episode would you pick as your last to ever watch (if for some horrible reason, MST was taken from you forever)?

I'd say an episode that's really goofy, light-hearted and ends on a positive note. One of the Santa movies, or Jack Frost. Anything with a weird, mythological story that isn't dark or mean-spirited would be a fun way to end my MSTie experience.


"Restored" Versions Of The Unreleased Episodes
Robert Morris - 8 days ago

I wanted to alert everyone of a project I am working on. It is my goal to create "restored" versions of the 11 MST3K episodes that have never seen a DVD or digital release. Maybe one day some will make it to retail again but it looks as though, due to licensing issues with movie rights holders, these 11 will never see a quality release.

I have already completed the first one with episode 201 "Rocketship X-M". Making use of the Vol. 39 "Satellite Dishes" host segments as well as other episodes that have been released on DVD and current best versions of the 11 episodes, I piece together what I consider to be the best available version up to this point. You can see my version of episode 201 on the site here, playing from YouTube.

I am not doing any actual restoration work to the silhouette/theater/movie scenes video or audio. This would go far beyond the amount of time I have to invest in this project. Also, since I would be working from already lossy rips of VHS tapes it wouldn't be worth the effort. At most I might use audio from one source with video from another if I run into a situation where that would make a higher quality final edit but not much beyond that. Most of my restoration focuses on the title theme, host segments and Gizmonics Institute flyover cut-scenes during commercial sign.

Next I will tackle episode 213 "Godzilla vs. Sea Monster". I figured I would just do them in order.

Note: I am not including "Godzilla vs. Megalon" in my project because it did see a DVD release, even though it was brief and pulled quickly after release (Vol. 10). The proper DVD version is out there on the interwebs to be watched already.

Just released! I've downloaded mine, and am looking forward to watching unfamiliar riffs on familiar material this evening.
Also, they riffed the entire movie uncut, so I'll see even more footage of the large, white, slow-moving object, plus (if we're lucky) extree railing kills.

After the new announcements for the newest iteration of Super Smash Bros. for the Nintendo Switch, it reminded me of an old show from the nineties that is better off left forgotten...or was it?
At the Super Smash Bros Announcement, the original villain of the franchise of Donkey Kong Country, King K. Rool, an evil reptile of some sorts, was announced as a playable character in the game. When this happened, I remembered a song he sang in the animated show that was on television, called "King K. Rool's Finest Hour." I had my chuckle as I watched people state that it truly was his finest hour. However, it also made me question the quality of the television show. It's really ridiculous. It was in the early stages of CGI, and so you can definitely tell! The dialogue was never good in that show, and it leaves open spaces for awkward moments, Really, if there's any television show to be riffed, it's Donkey Kong Country. I had an old VHS tape from when the show was on tv. Sure, I was born in 2000, but my brother was a 90's kid. So, I would watch the tape. And really, it doesn't live up to the potential of what a Donkey Kong Country show could be, but it DOES live up to PERFECT riffing fodder!

Re-Tread Thread: Best (& Worst) Villains In An MST3K Movie
1 laugh

For me the best villain would be Queen Laura (Lara?) from Outlaw Of Gor. While Our Heroes were correct to speculate as to whether there were actual suicides on the film set, she seems curiously into the whole thing: like she's having a pretty good time hamming it up with Palance and that hunter guy (and their incredible headgear, of course).

Runner up: Norbert Weisser aka "Bolo" from City Limits. As a bargain-basement Rutger Hauer, he's pretty good. Though it's hard not to look menacing when your only main competition in villainy is Robby Benson. :D I also love how when you go to his Wiki page, there's no mention of the film. I bet he goes in there once a week to make sure it's still not there. :P

Big Lipped Aligator Moments In MST-3000!
For those who don't know, A Big Lipped Moment is a scene in a movie that:
-Comes out of nowhere
-Has little to no bearing on the plot
-Doesn't match the tone of the film
-And once it's over, no one talks about it again

I'll start:
-Fish Argument Theater from Gamera Vs. Zigra
-The Dance Scene from Gamera

Okay, we've had a "Chosen First" and a "Chosen Last Ever" - if you could pick one MST3K experiment that you would never ever have to see again, even by accident, one that you could wish permanently into the cornfield, which would it be. Personally, I could do permanently without #1005 Blood Water of Doctor Z. If you dig it, that's cool - I'm only wishing it out of my queue.

So - what about you?

I won't be making a post for every single video I make, but here's the first one. Enjoy! :D
