MST3K (Cinema Editions)

Cinema Editions are high-quality, remastered versions of films, re-edited to match with the original MST3K episode audio. There are no opening/closing themes, segment skits, or host silhouettes (similar to RiffTrax). These are not meant to be a replacement for the classic MST3K episodes, just another way to enjoy it.

I tend to have CometTV on quite a bit around here (they do show MST3K on Sunday nights), and I'm always somewhat amused when they show the "regular" versions of movies that MST has done. Just this afternoon they have shown "The Atomic Brain" followed currently by "The Killer Shrews". More often than not I hear the riffing in my head anyway ;)


"Funny" stuff that isn't

Anyone else got a problem finding humor in something other people love? For me, it's anything "humorous" on NPR: Click and Clack; Wait wait don;t tell me; Lake Woebegone. Just either chock full of mutual back-slapping unfunny in-jokes or humor-meter reads zero.

What have you got?

Watching Rifftrax: Honor & Glory since it was just added to the 'Included with Prime' list and this riff gave me nice loud belly laugh : Ok, I think this movie just failed the Turing Test ...BTW, this one was worth the watch with lots of good riffs. Anybody else heard a new riff that was funny enough it stuck in your memory bank?

What MOVIE TITLE 'glaringly' doesn't live up to it's name? Choose from any of the movies the Guys/Gals have riffed. I was watching Rifftrax : Laser Mission today and I came to the conclusion that it has less lasers than Danger! Death Ray has death rays...plenty of good riffs however and the main villain was very familiar..He was Captain Devers from Space Mutiny..also 'stars' Ernest Borgnine...

For anybody here who cares if I've fallen off the Earth or not... just realized how long it's been since the last time I checked in to say "hi" and remark on how long it'd been since the last time I checked in to...

...aaaaanyway. Great enough that they have the original series for download, even better to hear that RiffTrax is offering Season 11 episodes for sale now, too. Even though the DW has a Netflix account and offered me her login to use, I didn't want to mess with MS Silverlight on my Mac, and ended up using one of those odd-domain streaming/download sites.

I've bought three movies from RiffTrax -- including Bridget & Mary Jo's fun, slightly perverse riff of Cat Women Of The Moon -- and it was thirty bucks well spent; so, I'm absolutely ready to pay actual money to the actual people who made this stuff to download it, seriously.

From the evidence, it seems Frank was probably the most fanatic. Joel also seems to have been a fan. I've catalogued the Marx Brothers references from every season of MST3K. Crazy, you say? You bet your life! For those who are interested, and particularly those who aren't (because they've never been exposed to the Brothers), you're welcome: http://mst3k.wikia.com/wiki/Marx_Bros._references?quot%3B=undefined&quot%3BANIMAL_CRACKERS=undefined

I've overcome my usual fear of podcasts, for a while at least. This thing's been around for about two years, but I'm methodically listening to the episodes in order. I just got all the way up to Nov. 2016. :D Have any other fans here checked it out?

Along with the Big Name interviews you'd expect, there's trivia, recaps, reviews, and one of the hosts going on late-model-Crow-style tirades against spoons and patios (though not both in the same episode). Like most podcasts, it could be less rambling and less insider-y at times, but I've decided the wheat-to-chaff ratio is acceptable even for an old fart like me. :D

Just do a search of the title on YouTube if you're interested.

Season 11 for sale!

Season 11 is going to be released for purchase this month. I have seen it already using less savory means (not being a Netflix user), but I do want them to get their money, so I plan on purchasing.

Currently, RT is offering a special HD pre-order of the entire season plus some other documentary-type thing for $99. You can also get individual episodes for $7.97 (normal quality) or $9.97 (HD) each.

While I would love to support both RT and the reboot at the same time, that's a little rich for my blood. Amazon is also doing pre-orders for the DVD format for $46 and $72 for Blu-ray.

Comparison shopping will now end its broadcast day.

Season 1 vs. Season 11

No, I'm not asking for a fight. I'm watching The Crawling Eye again after going through season 11 and there's a very different feel to the series. Season 1 is very laid back and casual. The riffs are spoken more slowly and they don't feel as urgent. In contrast, season 11 is almost frenetic. They are determined to deliver the riffs very quickly.

Don't get me wrong. I do like season 11. I've given my opinion on it before, but it's a much easier show to watch in season 1. It's like in season 11 they're really trying to be funny (and they do succeed to a large degree) whereas in season 1, they're just doing their thing and letting people decide whether or not it's funny.
