Hi fellow MSTies, I thought it might be fun if we listed some silly quotes or riffs that we work into our daily lives....I think this has been done but not to death. I'll start....
When someone says medieval I add " on your ass..."
I have friends and stuff
When couples fight in front of me-"Can I eat in my room?
Fright wig
Upsetting little shorts
I hope you all have evil snacks!
SOS flash code..."Send more porn!"
Giving tough guys fey dialogue or fey names like Brice, Tad,
Auntie Flava-Fav
" A good Republican cloth coat.." ( really a Nixon quote), and so many more!

Gamera vs Barugon; today's WIT

For any of the other kaiju film nuts out there, what are your favorite Gamera films or monsters?
My favorite (Gamera) monster and monster fight (maybe ever) is Gamera vs Guiron. Guiron is such a badass. I mean, he's a knife-headed reptile thing, for starters. And he's got throwing stars that come out of his aforementioned weapon-head. How is that not cool? Also, my favorite Gamera moment is when Guiron nicks him, and Gamera puts ice on his wound. Awww.
While some people think that the human element gets in the way of the monster fighting action, I like the human drama in today's WIT; it's pretty dark and brooding, instead of a squealy little kids as leads to grate on the nerves.
The brain-hungry "alien babes" in the Guiron picture are amusing, but screechy children drive me nuts. (I live next to an occasional daycare. With barky dogs. I like my peace and quiet.)
Hello! Thank you!

Been itching to watch this again lately, I like Depp though I thought he was doing a John Lovitz tribute throughout but Martin Landau really stole the movie and casting George Steele as Tor Johnson was brilliant if not obvious. Would LOVE to see a Rifftrax version as that would almost seem to come full circle lol


That you Gamera?

Tonight's another instant fave, Screaming Skull, co-starring the delightfully perpetually angst-ridden Peggy Webber, whose grating neuroses light up the screen in Space Chlldren.

For those who haven't seen this episode, the Gumby short ahead of it can be kinda rough going, but they riff it wonderfully, and the host segment bit based on it is a scream. Be sure and have plenty of Dizzy Grizzlies on hand, though.

Won't you?

On that "Netflix" that all the kids are kooky about these days, there is this doc called "Lost Soul" it is a doc about the making of the 1996 version of "Island of Dr, Moreau" which was a good Rifftrax.

It was a fascinating documentary. Apparently, Richard Stanley was set to direct the film, and then he had some kind of breakdown, and then New Line Cinema replaced him with John Frankenhiemer.

Now, I never met Richard Stanley, but his mother was a strong influence in my first coven, back in the day, which was linked heavily to English covens... and that is all very boring to you...

Anyways, a very good doc... I recommend it, highly. It was always one of my favourite books as a child. I would have loved to see what Richard would have done with the film, as the Rifftrax film was... pretty bad. But Marlon Brando was HY-larious!

I must admit to liking the Michael York version, as I always had a crush on him.... so... anyways....

Upon seeing the movie you have to marvel at the title.
What cracks me up is that whether you're talking ESCAPE 2000 or the original ESCAPE FROM THE BRONX, the protagonists are all fighting to REMAIN in the Bronx, not escape it!

Oh, for some gin, vermouth and lemons right now... I could play the Killer Shrews Drinking Game at tonight's WIT:

-Any time a character on-screen either takes a drink or makes a reference to drinking or alcohol, take a drink.
-If any scene in the movie takes place in or near a bar, take a drink.
-If any character on-screen appears drunk, take a drink.
-Any time Joel or the Bots delivers a riff mentioning drinking or alcohol, take a drink.
-If, during a host segment, Joel or the Bots mention drinking or alcohol, take a drink.
-If the theme of a host segment is drinking, take a drink.

...and, a classic old-skool martini recipe, courtesy of our pal Buff Drinklots:
2 1/2 ounces gin
1/2 ounce dry vermouth
Lemon twist
Dash of Angostura bitters

Starcrash and The Beastmaster, an unfortunate double feature.

In the last couple of months, I have been made to watch Starcrash and The Beastmaster for the first time. While I'm sure they're more palatable if one is exposed to these things in ones youth, at the ripe old age of 36, it hurts. Starcrash was by far the more interesting of the two, to me at least, due to the behind-the-scenes drama between the overwhelmed, under-skilled special effects dude and the director. The movie itself and the clearly frustrated attempts to replicate Harryhausen stop motion effects spoke volumes of the disappointment and exhaustion that was happening off-camera. Plus, it's Italian and maybe I'm a bit ill, but I find a lot of the Italian not-great films charming, at the very least.
The Beastmaster, while at times had interesting character design (the pods with the digesting bat/alien things were kind of neat), the dyed tiger was unforgivable, the whore-hag-witches or whatever they were supposed to be were obnoxious, and overall, the thing was poorly written with sub-par acting (they did their best with what they had, I guess) and the set design was less than meh. I've been hearing the title of this film in passing throughout my life, and I just don't get how or why it became so well known, and possibly loved. For the genre, I think Willow is far more watchable (I can hear Crow's voice in my head - "Hey I liked Willow!")
What do you think sirs?

I know that a bunch of you were asking how my show went. I'm pleased to announce that I have some footage. Now, on the other hand, this was our first night that was just a senior citizen show. Those are always our worst show. We didn't know what to do at times, messed up on choreography, etc. And I was especially yelly that night. My yelling was a little annoying this time around. So, view at your own risk XD I played Feldzieg, for anyone who doesn't know.

I'm watching RT Plan 9, and there's a character named Kelton. He's a cop. I thought that sounded familiar. There's a cop named Kelton in Bride of the Monster. Same actor. Same kind of part.

So I went to IMDb, and lo and behold, Paul Marco played a character named Kelton no fewer than five times in his limited acting career. Three of them were in Ed Wood movies.

To commemorate the normalization of US/Cuba relations and the re-opening of the Cuban Embassy in DC, I suggest we watch Red Zone Cuba tomorrow night.

It's a really compelling snapshot of history... and, as Mike'n'the Bots point out, America was Bay Of Pigs crazy back then. There was no way you could lose money making a Bay Of Pigs movie, and Coleman Francis knew it.

First of all I want to say that overall this movie is pretty mediocre. The premise is a bunch of FBI serial killer profilers are stuck on an island for a training exercise and one of them starts killing everybody, they have to figure out who. The big problem is it was too easy to solve. They blew it half way through with the drugged coffee scene. They drink some coffee, the killer drugged it, and when they wake up one of them has been murdered. They immediately start bickering about who made the coffee and none of these Sherlock Holmes level deductive reasoning geniuses bothers to ask “Who didn’t drink the coffee?” He didn’t drink the coffee! There’s you answer, the one guy who passed out despite not having drank the coffee was the killer. That’s my only big problem with the movie, these super-geniuses who see every detail didn’t see this big obvious straight up ANSWER that was in front of them! It wasn’t even very subtle, it wasn’t like he was sitting in the room and just happened to not be drinking, he stormed into the room where everybody else had been drinking and made a big stink about some “evidence” he’d found. Then everybody starts fainting. He wasn’t even in the room when they were drinking it! I don’t work for the FBI, I’m not the best of the best, super crime solving mind, but by god I solved that one pretty easily. Overall I don’t have a whole lot to say about this movie but man, that was a HUGEMOUNGOUS oversight. 2/5*
