MST3K films are not known for their excellent acting, but I've long been fascinated by the TRULY MEMORABLY BAD performances. So what's your favorite?

Just a note, I don't mean merely incompetent. I mean what results when a not-completely-untalented person commits to a bad performance with gusto. The best example I can think of is the bald evil wizard from Deathstalker and the Warriors from Hell. He's not totally bad (I legit like some things, like the way he underplays his first meeting with the hero), but most of his choices are just bizarre and fascinating.

This is so exciting. Just read about it this morning! Btw, has anyone checked out the show Film Crew? There are three episodes on youtube, but I was wondering if anyone knew of more. Also, was it a project that preceded RiffTrax, coincided with it or was it a show that just never got picked up? Anyway, we intrepid fans who have stuck by MST3K all these years are about to be rewarded for keeping the dream alive.

Making a Day of It

Today is National Random Acts of Kindness Day. Yesterday was Do a Grouch a Favor Day. The 15th was National Gumdrop Day. Valentine's Day doubled as National Ferris Wheel Day. (Ain't the Internets grand?)

Point is: If we can have every sort of honorary "day" possible in an infinite omniverse, including National Aardvark Day (August 27th), why not a National Mystery Science Theater [and alums] Day?

Am I rabble-rousing and suggesting we write our elected reps to institute such a solemn nationwide pronouncement to enable a day of partying, props-giving, and fond hat-tipping? Yes, I suppose I am.

One last thing: We'll need a date. And a face. Maybe a logo.

I'd suggest the first national air date on Comedy Central. And buzz-cut, jump-suited Joel. Plus, the homey gray "meatball."

Let me first retire to the Hospital's Hospitality Suite and its lead-lined shielding -- OK. Now, then: Let the spleen-venting begin!

Welp, we had to sign a confidentiality agreement, so I cannot tell you anything about the show. So instead let me just tell you about the funniest riffing I've seen this week, which is Rifftrax's Zindy the Swamp Boy. Has anyone seen this one? It stands with any of the best of MST. And it's available on Amazon Prime.

Valentine's plans, anyone?
I'm engaging in my annual tradition of seeing a movie by myself and getting drunk. I'm gonna see the Lego Batman movie tonight, but I'm nervous----Why? Because The Lego Movie is one of my favorite movies, and I'm afraid my expectations may be too high going in to see the spin-off. Has anyone seen it yet? How is it?

And anyone else got plans for Singles Appreciation Day?

Funky - 14 days ago

Checked this teen horror out on Netflix a week or so ago. It Follows. Title may sound horror, but the movie itself is well...sleepy. Too sleepy for me. Stopped watching it at some point as it was boring, but it was about teen girls falling in love with this guy who is also a murderer. he mates, then he kills like the mantis in his pantis. It's hardly scary. More confusing in places. The only memorable thing I can think of from it was this naked girl standing out on a street when another girl is getting murdered Manhunter or Batman Forever style strapped to a office chair. Not that the other girl is naked, but she's standing in a street. Or was it a parking lot? Whatever it was night and probably cold out. That scene was odd but boring. That's around when I start to loose interest in the movie and did other things while it was on. Makes good white noise at least. Might be MST3K riffing worthy too,

Whyyy did you make this thing on Valentine's Day Joel?? Now you're getting me in trouble. I asked her to go to a Valentine's Day (Observed) dinner on Monday, and she can't believe the awful truth that I'm going to a movie, alone, on Valentine's Day.

Mr. C Flat (Iguana) - 17 days ago

Hey, everyone. And now for something completely different! It's been quite a while since I've been about. Last time I've been about was Christmas, and that was just to send my best wishes. I have no internet, at the moment, so I've just been everywhere. I'm glad to get the chance to pop on every now and again and I'd like to tell you about a project I've been working on.
As a lot of you know, I'm still in high school and am big in the music program and Drama program. We do a showcase of plays yearly and I wrote a play called, "Sceneception," a play about being a writer and the difficulty and caving in or not caving in to what others try to have you write. It made fun of many actual films and multiple classics, and it will be put into a competition soon, as well. But What I'm really excited about is my next project that is even better and inspired by MST3K a hundred percent. The play has no title, but the premise is as follows:
In a world where Trump becomes president (even though that is our real world), The Donald has allowed cruel and unusual punishments to be used in America. What are these punishments? Being forced to watch the WORST high school productions in the U.S. So, the plot follows four people who committed crimes, being forced to watch an awful high school play. You watch the play AND they riff it. They sit out in the audience with everyone else and riff the awful play. And yes. I'm also purposely writing an utterly awful play to go with it The plot of that play was literally generated using a plot generator for maximum cliches. I'm really excited for this. It's also relatable because I'm sure almost everyone has been forced to sit through an awful high school production in their lifetimes and wanted to commentate so bad, but couldn't because it's rude. I talked to my director of the drama club and she was all for this and let me greenlight it, and start writing it. It will be finished by Fall of 2017 and boy is this exciting. I'm able to write something that is different for the stage, but my favorite kind of comedy. So, I wanted to make sure to touch base and tell everyone about it here, just to see thoughts. It's definitely something that is different from other plays AND is making light of a situation that, frankly, I'm not a fan of.

Terminator Genisys...

... and here's why. Spoiler: (Though you can't ruin a turd) This is maybe the only movie I've ever seen that actively pisses my off. It's bad in every way and then some. Lots of movies have bad effects, bad acting, bad writing, bad casting, a bad overall plot, and shits on beloved source material. Dragon Ball Evolution is a great example, it has all of those qualities. But here's where TG goes the extra mile. While DBE only shit on source material and ignored it, Terminator Genisys ACTIVELY TRIES TO DESTROY IT. Who in the name of F^^K thought it was a good idea to erase two of the best action movies ever made from the canon in favor of a movie so lazy it didn't even bother to justify it's own blatantly broken time-travel logic!? Sure, the first two's time travel didn't make perfect sense but if you didn't think about it it's easy to let slide, and even if you do think about it it's justified by being part of overall excellent films. TG has a scene where someone actually acknowledges the time travel doesn't make sense and then they justify it by essentially saying "Who cares?" I CARE! Every time I even so much as think about this film I want to punch the writer in the face as hard as I possibly can.
