So, I'm working for a lease management company right now (I'm basically only filing stuff, not actually doing anything interesting) and I figured I'd post this here because I'm not sure anyone else at work would get it: one of our clients is called Cameron Mitchell Restaurants!
I don't think it's the same guy that we know as Captain Santa and various other villainous types - http://www.cameronmitchell.com/our-people/who-is-cameron-mitchell - but I like to think the menu offers items like Fridge Largemeat. That is all.

Hello, MSTies! This is unrelated, but plausible at the same time. I wrote this one act play and....you're probably already wondering why it's plausible. Well, you see, I wanted to know all of your opinions. Because it's a lot of satire. It's a big satirical writing I've been working on for a while. And I'm still putting in and taking away some things. It's very dialogue-heavy, but I think it's funny. So, that's why I want you guys to confirm it. So, here's the link: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Uq2nRj5TNtYYW0QKeSe76-t5JGzbSzR6ND181YYYdyo/pub

I recently was able to purchase this on RiffTrax, and I was surprised at how much I enjoyed it. It's a fairly typical 70s B-movie (with perhaps slightly worse than average special effects), but the riffing is great. It has some really random scenes (like the sheriff answering a call from some wacko who is actually never in the movie, from what I can tell), but it's a real movie with a plot, no matter how ridiculous and some extremely riffable characters (like the comic relief hicks who get the goofiest background music ever). There are some fun long-running riffs about the local doctor being forced to go places he doesn't want to go and there being no time to explain.

A sample of riffs:

(As the cheesy monster rises out of the lake) "The Loch Ness Monster is a pussy!"
(The sheriff pauses to reload his gun.) "Wait. Actual reloading? Doesn't he know that he's in a movie and that's completely unnecessary?"
(After a couple is attacked by the monster and they don't actually run away.) "They're still there? She's really committed to this not going for help plan."

Anyway, it's an unexpectedly fun riff, and for what it's worth, I recommend it.

I just saw a riff in "Moon Zero Two" that was perfect for modern day. In the opening cartoon sequence, there's these two astronauts, one Russian and one American, and a limo comes by with a super rich guy smoking a cigar in the back, chasing the astronauts. Just then, Joel says, "Oh, hey, look! It's Donald Trump chasing the good guys away!"

In addition to movies of all sorts, I also collect DVD/VHS/CD's of old TV/Radio baseball broadcast. VHS and Radio are the best, because you usually get the commercials (MLB edits them out of the official DVD releases).

So I'm watching the '73 Series and at break there are two MST3K stallwarts: Barbara Hale telling me if it isn't an Amana it isn't a radarrange and Smilin' Jack Palance being very serious about renting cars from Avis. Like running into good friends.

Bu the time warp moment that really blew my mind: Norman Fell and Louie Nye were in a sitcom together? How much ham did they need on that sandwich?

Barring any convo about politics, I would choose the State of Washington. Except the one guy standing left of their speaker. What a wet blanket. Put on the green foam tree hats like everyone else, chubs. They'd make a fun christmas party hat too. The two gentlemen on the other side of the lady speaker looked wasted. Is pot legal in Washington?

Have you heard a line from one of the Movies done by MST3K that either was missing a riff or you feel could be significantly upgraded with a better one...and please supply the Line plus the New Riff and also which Movie it's from(where it appears in the movie would also be helpful)...

Couple notes: 1) I still haven't seen all of these unriffed, that damn life thing keeps getting in the way of that project. 2) These are what I feel are the BEST movies not necessarily my favorites from each season.

Season 0: Phase IV Ending is a bit too 70s Sci-Fi, but one of the best films the original series did. The Green Slime and Legend of the Dinosaurs are also good.

Season 1: Moon Zero Two in a coin flip over The Black Scorpion.

Season 2: Lost Continent Look at it as a quest movie, not Sci-Fi. MST3K version doesn't have the color tint (a Lippert trademark). One of the few times the series is really unfair to the movie--they have a funeral for Monkey Boy.

Season 3: Daddy-O But I'm a sucker for noir, even lite noir.

Season 4: The Rebel Set Lots of choices here, but this the most complete film of the season

Season 5: Gunslinger Fairly formulaic, but Garland and Ireland lift it up

Season 6: The Sword and the Dragon (The Russo-Finnish films are all pretty good)

Season 7: Night of the Blood Beast It's proto-Alien! Laserblast is too much of an imperfect circle.

Season 8: Parts: The Clonus Horror Deadly Mantis and Teenage Werewolf are also contenders.

Season 9: Gorgo Best of a thin lot

Season 10: Squirm Because it scared the hell out of me as a kid, Diabolik is probably the real right answer.

Bear with me here: I think "Lost Continent" has the potential to be a really good movie.
The scene with the characters bonding in the cave (about halfway through the rock climbing sequence, I think) reminds me of the scene from "Jaws" where Brody, Quint, and Hooper are all telling stories. That scene convinced me that "Jaws" isn't a movie about a shark - it's more like a movie about people in bad circumstances trying to repair their world. "Lost Continent" has that too. The story is set up with screw-up after screw-up (atomic rocket or whatever vanishes, plane crashes) and the characters come from different backgrounds and reveal more about themselves as the movie goes on.
So now I'm imagining "Lost Continent" with more interesting and diverse characters, getting to know each other and trying to adapt to an increasingly surreal, bizarre environment. Doesn't that sound cool?
If anyone else is interested in this kind of thing, what are some stories or characters in mst3k-ed movies that you think someone should revisit?

It really has finally come to this, there it nothing on cable worth watching, but this. Even if you are a dyed in the wool GOPer, you've gotta give it up for the hair dos and the hair do nots, the wide ties and the fat lies! It starts with the cbs commentator reporting on Betty Ford's prat fall, cuts to Bob Dole telling everyone to sit the Hell down. Que the Black People Cam as it searches for African Americans in the crowd, I saw 3. Betty Ford gets help walking down the stairs from her daughter. Betty has such a twinkle in her eye, it reminds me of a rent boy I saw dancing at a rave in 1995. The pea green hue of the film shows it's age, filmed in glorious bald spot vision.

Uh, I stayed in the Waldorf Astoria hotel in NY. It once was a 5 star hotel and they invented room service. Now it's a dump and has been sold to Chinese nationals to be turned into condos/spy den. But before they screw up this building if you happen to be in NY and on Park Ave, check out the lobby, it is awesome, and free. Unfortunately it's all down hill after the elevator ride to your room. But the hallways look like something from the Shining, so there's always that.....
