Of all the former MST3K writers, I would've put Bill at, like, 3rd or 4th most likely to make a Middle-Earth podcast.

You've got to admit, you are kind of implausible

I mean, Kevin bragged about owning a leather hat in "A Year at the Movies"

This morning on the Rifftrax Twitch channel they aired Star Games. Holy gently caress, this may be the most insane movie I have ever seen! The special effects are atrociously bad, the space prince's computer AI is a disembodied clown head and the whole movie has this bizarre outsider art feel to it.

E: lol the king is Tony Curtis. Well that explains why he sounded like a two-bit New Jersey gangster wannabe.


Star Games was directed by Greydon Clark, who gave us Angels' Revenge and Final Justice. The School teacher "Angel" was also in Star Games (I think she's also married to Clark)

Oh wow. That explains a lot but also raises further questions, because honestly Star Games is a couple of orders of magnitude worse than either of those movies. Maybe they just reached too far? After all "Fat alcoholic cop kicks Europeans in the rear end" and "Skimpily dressed women kick Americans in the rear end" are a lot easier to do than a big effects filled sci-fi spectacular.

I was honestly watching slack-jawed as Tony Curtis stands in a blue void filled with Amiga-rear end pyramids making a long monologue filled with completely nonsensical names and nouns, as Amiga-rear end pyramids and Atari ST-rear end marbles shoot green squiggles at each other.

It's just such a complete loving mess from top to bottom.

Apparently during quarantine he started reading the books and even the Simarillion.

Watching 'Giant from the Unknown' on Tubi and the weirdest thing is the picture quality. This thing is pristine. Especially since I just watched the twenty years later and much shittier Hawk the Slayer.

On the other hand 'Giant' is more racist but 'Hawk' has a scene where a sorceress covers a guy in silly string. Tricky to rate the two overall.

Yeah, I saw Giant somewhat recently and that is an amazing print for a bad movie.

The Christopher Lee horror film City of the Dead similarly has a really good print.

Rifftrax is participating in the new MST3K Kickstarter with their own reward set for backing.

quote:

Level $35+ A free 1-month subscription to RiffTrax Friends for new subscribers
Level $50+ The above + Jack and The Beanstalk + The Wizard of Oz
Level $100+ The above + Gammera The Invincible
Level $150+ The above + RiffTrax Live: Giant Spider Invasion

Also if MST3K gets their final goal of $5.5 million (which is pretty likely) there will be a special live Rifftrax event on the Gizmoplex.
