I have a confession to make.

The majority of the episodes I watch I don't actually watch. I'll pull up a browser, play an episode, and then work on my computer, play a game, read the news, etc.

I've seen every episode many dozens and dozens of times so I still laugh at what I'm hearing without having to watch the episode. The few times I'll actually sit and watch an episode feels weird because I'm so used to multitasking when the show's on.

Sorry, just had to get that off my chest.


Repurposed incidental music geekery

Am I just weird, or am I not the only one here who likes to watch movies on MST3K and try to find theme or incidental music that was lifted or repurposed from another movie?

I'm watching First Spaceship On Venus now, and I could swear I heard a snatch of the Refueling Theme from Starfighters -- not the daaaaahhhhhh dah dah daaaaahhhhh bit, btw -- as well as some little bits of incidental music I first heard in the original 1940 Wolf Man.

Earlier today, while watching Hercules And The Captive Women, I heard the famous DAH DAH DAAAHHHHH "action hook" from Creature From The Black Lagoon, and a chunk of The Song We Sing When You Come Home From Venus from First Spaceship On Venus... and btw, you can also hear DAH DAH DAAAHHHHHH in Women Of The Prehistoric Planet.

Then, there's the opening theme and incidental music from Attack Of The Giant Leeches lifted pretty much in its entirety for Night Of The Blood Beast (or is it vice versa?).

The weird incidental music with the funny xylophone licks in It Conquered The World can also be heard in Attack Of The The Eye Creatures.

Several big chunks of the incidental music from the original 1932 Frankenstein can also be heard in The Phantom Creeps.

And of course, Richard Band's theme from Robot Holocaust also pops up in Laserblast.

I'll stop now, because I'm on a deadline, and also because I really am geeking out way too much over this.


Watching Manos got me thinking...

Which MSTs, if remade with modern SFX and a good director/cast, would become a box office hit (or, at least, not be terrible)?

I think Manos is definitely up there. Cast someone who can wear faun stilts properly and put Guillermo del Toro in charge and you've got a pretty solid fantasy horror film. Oh, and a budget that's more than "I'll give you a bike if you lend me your dog."

Anyway, thoughts?

So, question: why is there an ENGLISH professor explaining issues of anthropology, sociology, and various theories on Earth sciences at in the intro of the movie? Were they afraid audiences wouldn't understand a title like "Geologist" or "Archaeologist"?

One of the riffs that I noticed the last time I watched this one is pretty much impossible to just write out and have it make any sense.

During the dam-breaking scene, the camera keeps cutting back to Fu Manchu, over and over again. Fu Manchu, more water flowing, Fu Manchu, more water. And quietly, every single time it flashes back to Fu Manchu, Servo says, "Fu." That's it. Every cut. "Fu." "Fu." "Fu." And it's hilarious. To me, anyway.
