I love Space Mutiny. The love interest who looks 15 years older than the hero (and not in a nice way). The ship exteriors that are all stock shots from the original Battlestar Galactica. The bowels of the ship itself look like a water treatment plant or a refinery. Best of all, Reb Brown jumps off a floor buffer racing at three miles per hour, does a Shatner-roll and bellows, "Aaarrr!" as his floor buffer destroys the villain's floor buffer. Good times.

Thanks for the report, lugz!! It sounds brilliant. There's just nothing better than events with that kind of hilarious energy!!

I've always been really disappointed at the midnight movies here--maybe it's just the theatre or the film, but everyone's asleep except for me.

A real hero would have driven his floor buffer into the bad guy's floor buffer, jumped over the hoods and strangled him, in a very cheesy fashion.

I love the girl who dies and then a few scenes later is shown alive and well on the bridge....wtf? And Santa the space captain.....
"Is he okay Mike?" "Kalgon take me away."

Which one is the Brain that Wouldn't die? Is that the woman who's severed head is kept alive by her boyfriend or the warlock who's head is found out in the woods in a traysure chest? If it's the later I love the dirty sleeze ball farm hand "Did they hire him straight out of prison?"

Its the one where her doctor boyfriend keeps her alive, although I still pissed myself watching this one, it was the weekest out of the four that were shown

Indeed, this show was ahead of its time. I do prefer the Joel years, tho I must admit I'd kill to see the early stuff they did(88 or so I believe). We need more shows like this. Independent, free spirited stuff that doesn't force itself on you and lets its subtle humor and charm shine through. Here's to more dvds of Joel(or Mike) and the bots. Excelsior!

Mike MST3K Launches RiffTrax

Postby mistertim on Fri Jul 21, 2006 3:59 am

Mike Nelson is launching something called RiffTrax:

"'...free-lance commentary tracks. Bottom line: Mystery Science Theater 3000-style commentary for big famous beloved movies like Titanic or The Matrix. The hitch: you have to provide the movie. It's genius: no worries about copyright. You buy the commentary tracks for $1.99, rent the movie or get it out of your collection, load the commentary on your iPod or burn it to a disk, then watch them together in true you-got-peanut-butter-in-my-chocolate bliss. ... The first movie is Roadhouse."

I for one can't wait....

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!

That is probablly my favorite.... I love Squirm and A Touch of Satan too...

I used to get up every Saturday morning to watch MST and then they just stopped playing them...
Now I have purchased a few of the dvd sets....
Good stuff, good times... :)

When I was younger my friends and I would go out to the bars and whenever there was a television on we would make our own commentary which was pretty fun when we were all tanked up...

Anyway, this sounds like a pretty cool idea.. I will probablly give this a try but it really wont be the same without the silhouettes... I like to see them sitting there...

Julia and I have about a hundred episodes on video or taped from TV. And, of course, we're liaisons for the student MSTies club.

Unfortunately, my DVD player only plays one disc at a time, and we don't own ipods. Guess we'll need a second disc setup, like using the computer's CD player while watching on the small TV in the office. <sigh> Still a great idea, though.

He's pretty damned funny on his own; he was head writer for MST. Have you read either of his books?

I am a fan and well aware of Mike's work but I think one man commentary just won't be as amusing as the group effort from MST3K.

yeah I'd have to agree with the others here Dennis, though I think this is definately worth checking out I really wish Mike, Tom and Crow were all doing the commentary. Hell even bring joel back that guy isn't doing anything these days anyway.

What was the most recent guys name who did Servo, because between his singing and humor I thought he was one of the better characters on the show. What ever happened to that guy? and why hasn't he replaced Leno yet?

Kevin Murphy was Servo starting with season two, after Josh Weinstein left the show (thank the gods). He was great as Servo and as Bobo in the last three seasons.

He hasn't done much TV for a while. He was on an episode of The Cheap Seats on ESPN, but most recently he did a direct-to-video thing, The Three Stooges in Color, that also featured Mike Nelson and Bill Corbett (Observer/Brain Guy from the SciFi seasons).

A few years back he put out a book, A Year at the Movies, about how he saw a movie every day for a damned year. Not a different movie, though, which bugged me. Good read with some great weekly updates.

Is this the first one? Or do they only offer one movie's riffs at a time? If the latter, that's a bad idea all around.

Yeah, poor Russell gets vaporized by the "good" aliens' beam as he and the leads try to escape.

MSTies Anonymous of Colorado begins its screenings tomorrow -- Friday, August 25. If you're nearby, feel free to attend.

Aug. 25: Mystery Science Theater 3000 - 'The Narrator Who Would Not Die!'

Welcome back! Or welcome here! Or something! Good to see you, in any case. A new semester means a new series of "Mystery Science Theater 3000," the cult hit that swept the nation for ten years until it was cancelled by the Sci-Fi Channel.

Join us at 7 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 25, in the Lory Student Center ASCSU Senate Chambers for an adventure into nearly silent filmmaking called "The Beast of Yucca Flats." (The Senate Chambers are in the southeast corner of the LSC, opposite the ASCSU offices.)

Once again, let us explain "Mystery Science Theater 3000." Mad scientists have shanghaied an average (or so they think) guy into orbit and torture him with bad films to find his breaking point and use this information to conquer the world. Complicated, ain't it? To resist, our hero and his robotic friends mock the bad movies, peppering each 90-minute installment with hundreds of comebacks ranging from the infantile to the intellectual. The world, safe for another week, grabs as many "Campus Coupons" books as it can carry.

Coleman Francis wrote, directed and acted, uncredited, in 'The Beast of Yucca Flats." He should not have been let anywhere near a typewriter or a camera. He made Ed Wood look competent. His movies are not entertainingly bad. They're just bad. In "The Beast of Yucca Flats," Swedish wrestler Tor Johnson is a Russian atomic scientist who has defected to the USA. A big, hairy, barely English-fluent, not-bright-looking atomic scientist. He's chased into the desert by commies with guns and walks into a nuclear blast. This addles his brain and makes him kill-crazy. All through this, there is no dialogue, just voice-over narration by our man Coleman Francis. In addition to describing what we've just seen on the screen, Francis philosophizes: "Flag on the moon. How did it get there?" and "Boys from the city. Not yet caught by the whirlwind of Progress. Feed soda pop to the thirsty pigs." This goes on for close to an hour.

Opening the evening are two shorts. In "Money Talks," the shade of Ben Franklin teaches a teen about budgeting and saving, two things today's young people would do well to learn. Following is "Progress Island, USA," in which an American businessman's company sends him to oversee operations in Puerto Rico, home of cheap labor and cheaper rum. He spazzes out in paradise while wife and kids "wait for him to find a house" and bring them over. Thanks to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce for bringing us this study in exploitation and shiftlessness.

All of these free "Mystery Science Theater 3000" screenings are sponsored by Associated Students of Colorado State University and brought to you by MSTies Anonymous of Colorado and the generosity of Best Brains, Inc., the creators of MST3K.

For more information please contact me, Mr. Information Guy at Dennis.Morrigan_McDonough@ColoState.EDU.

I have to get the Beast of Yucca Flats MST3000 ep. My dad and I watch these movies from one of those 50 horror DVD sets (or suspense or sci-fi or I think there is a westerns one as well) that are all like 50 movies that have lapsed into the public domain and they are really cheap like less than $.50 per flick. I had never seen BoYF before watching it as part of this set but I think it might actually edge out Manos as worst movie ever made simply because there is no "real" dialogue....it's all just part of the voice over track. Plus it's just as incoherent. Of course it does have the advantage over Manos that most of the time you can actually see what's going on whether you want to or not. If nothing else it's much closer to Manos quality then to Ed Wood.

I totally love MST3K. 150 VHS tapes with nealry every episode is testimony to that.

I've moved about seven episodes to DVD. Fugitive Alien, It Conquered The World, Girls Town, First Spaceship On Venus, 12 To The Moon, Leech Woman, and something else.

Personally, I am a big fan of Mike. The premise of the show never really changed, and they were always successful when they were doing the most basic thing, which was making fun of bad films.

I can understand that but Ed Wood is the "Worst Director Ever" for posers who have only seen the Tim Burton "biographical" film.

BUMP!

I always loved this brilliant show. It's a shame that Trace Beaulieu went on to waste his talents on America's Funniest Home Videos.

Has anyone checked out the FILM CREW dvd's?

I saw the guys at CON and seems that they've tried to recapture some of the greatness. They're close, but I miss the outlines of the robots though.

MITCHELL! Joe Don Baker IS... Mittens!

My favorite ep of all time. I'm giving my brother in law a copy of it for his birthday today.

Fans of MST3K rejoice! The original cast of the show is back with a new project. Cinematic Titanic!!! Seems like it has the potential to be the awesome.

Meh... Joel is great news but the original Servo was nothing noteworthy.
