Movie Sign Again! New MST3K Capsule Reviews, Part 2

4 – Avalanche – This is by one of Mst3K’s favorite directors, Roger Corman, and this is his attempt at a star studded ‘70’s disaster film. Being a Corman film, there really isn’t that many walking scenes – he is as famous for those as Ed Wood is for parking scenes – but there is a lot of padding in this sad attempt at a film. Even star power like Rock Hudson and Mia Farrow – seriously! Doing the worst acting of their careers – doesn’t stop this from being a lesser Corman effort, ticking absolutely every box in the ‘70’s action movie cliché list (except no super pregnant lady – probably couldn’t afford to film a labor sequence). It’s more like Swamp Diamonds Corman, than Night of the Blood Beast Corman, which means...

Movie sign! My capsule reviews of the new Mystery Science Theater 3000, Part 1

Here’s something no one asked for – my opinions on the new round of Mystery Science Theater 3000! I’ll eventually report on all of them, assuming the world doesn’t end in the meantime. I mean, I wish that was a joke, but sadly it’s not. Okay, so, let’s go. 1. Reptilicus – It’s hard to believe the original MST3K never got around to covering this one, as it is the perfect MST3K movie, in that not a single element works. The script, the acting, the effects, the directing, the editing – all terrible, top to bottom. A Danish attempt at Godzilla, this one fails to conjure up a single scare. It also crashes down hard in the suspension of disbelief phase, which is critical in any movie of this nature. You have to agree to go along with the movie’s...

Five Song Wednesday

Sadly, since it seems we’re all going to need cheering up for the near future, I decided to go ahead and do another random song thingy. Here we go. And this took on more of an international flavor than I was expecting. ** Snowball II – Anais & Me Ah, here’s a cheerful sounding thing to kick things off with. I know nothing about this band, save for their name being a Simpsons reference. They sound fun, though. Japanese Breakfast – In Heaven Today it’s going to be the day of bands I don’t know a lot about. This is actually one performer, I think, but don’t quote me on that. I’m not sure either of these songs are genuinely cheerful, but they sound like they could be, and that’s good enough for today. De Osos – Todo el ruido entre...

Flash Fic Challenge – It’s The End of the World As We Know It, And I Don’t Give A Fuck

Latest challenge, and since it’s profane of course I was doing it. ** It’s The End of the World As We Know It, And I Don’t Give A Fuck The first hundred days of the apocalypse were epic as fuck. Like, there was some weird ass virus or sexually transmitted disease or whatever the fuck, maybe it was the Andromeda Strain, I don’t know. By the time people started figuring out it had a ninety nine point nine percent fatality rate and was transmitted by air, a third of the world was dead. Where it had come from and what it actually was lost the race against time. The thing was, some people were immune. Very, very few. But I was one of them, which I figured out when I realized the entire neighborhood had dropped dead, except me. The illness didn’t affect...
