Three observations: (1) Catholic in-joke during the final fight in the chapel: "It's liberation theology vs. Opus Dei"! (2) Everything in this movie is awful *except* darn good conga solos in the sound track. (3) 'Box Wrangler' in the closing credits.

Help me with with Tom's choir lyrics!

Hurray for Host Segments!

I seem to be in the minority here at this site. Everyone loves the movie riffs, the obscure references and call-backs. Me? I love the host segments and fast-forward through most of the movies. I love a B-movie sci-fi flick, but if it's not watchable, riffing won't help me through it.

I'm always amazed at how BROWN this movie is. It's in color, but it's so BROWN!

Also, I was trying to watch a (mediocre) documentary yesterday about modern-day Flat Earthers, and now it's too late for me to wind up the whole board on 4/1 by pretending I've joined up with them.

Aaanyway, in my perusal of comedy from my pre-MST3K years, I found this very stellar and upbeat version of Hamlet, which even the most entrenched haters of a certain show's later episodes might enjoy. I mean, at least it's short and in color.

How DID the 'bots strip off Mike's boxers? It's an interesting topological puzzle...

Sweet Fanny Adams, but this hurts. Worse than Manos, worse than Fu Manchu, and worse than Monster A-Go-Go. Mike & Friends try, but I still can't manage more than one or two scenes a day. If there was one human being whose birth I could retroactively prevent, it would be the waste of oxygen responsible for this dung heap. Bleah!

Guitar Solo?!

It bears mentioning that (Crow's cute little Stratocaster notwithstanding): that was a paint-peelingly boring SYNTH solo. I didn't hear ~any~ actual guitar notes. A few of BestBrains know 'cowboy chords' on guitar, but none of them play single-note lines; keyboard is a little more accessible for that to 'hobbyist' musicians.
