@  TM2-Megatron : (04 December 2019 - 10:22 PM)

Still not the weirdest thing a Nic Cage character has done in a film

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 December 2019 - 04:00 PM)

Couldn't be worse than him pissing fire as Ghost Rider.

@  Rycochet : (04 December 2019 - 03:38 PM)

The Tim Burton Superman Movie is the DC movie we deserve. It would have Nic Cage in a technosuit punching polarbears.

@  Paladin : (04 December 2019 - 02:59 PM)

Wonder Woman was great. Shazam was amazing. Aquaman... exists.

@  RichardT1977 : (04 December 2019 - 01:54 PM)

TBF, Aquaman and Shazam! were pretty good.

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 December 2019 - 01:00 PM)

Not a difficult feat.

@  Benbot : (04 December 2019 - 11:50 AM)

You just put more effort into telling a compelling story than all of WB's execs.

@  Cybersnark : (04 December 2019 - 11:41 AM)

Cue the flashback to Jonathan, reassuring a terrified child: "What you are is never as important as who you are." Cue Superman's response to Brainiac: "I already know who I am."*John Williams fanfare plays*

@  Cybersnark : (04 December 2019 - 11:38 AM)

I don't think we even really need to see Krypton. I'd start with Clark growing up in Kansas, thinking he's normal, and follow him through the development of his powers. There've been enough alternate takes on Krypton that it could actually work as a mystery; is this the pre-Crisis utopia, the sterile science world, or the relic of a fallen empire? Brainiac was there, and he tempts Clark with the knowledge of what he really is.

@  Otaku : (04 December 2019 - 11:12 AM)

First, a Krypton film, ending with baby Kal-El being found on Earth.  Then Supe's early career film, establishing his values... and if Jonothan Kent needs to die, it happens because of something like a heart attack while Clark is savnig folks on the other side of the world.  After we know Clark minimizes property damage and never kills, have Zod & Company show up and force him to make tough choices.

@  Otaku : (04 December 2019 - 11:07 AM)

Man of Steel seems like someone came up with a Superman trilogy and then the execs said "We've got to catch up to Marvel, make it one film!".  I don't mean that based on the film's actual pacing, but because various story beats make more sense to me if they weren't all squished together.

@  Cybersnark : (03 December 2019 - 07:44 PM)

I've been wanting to write a Superman movie trilogy for years; "Man of Steel" (featuring a Terminator-like Brainiac) was going to be first, with "Last Son of Krypton" (featuring the Eradicator) as the sequel and "Man of Tomorrow" (in which Luthor makes his face-heel turn) as the conclusion. Thanks to Snyder I have to re-arrange my titles.

@  Nevermore : (03 December 2019 - 06:15 PM)

I still wish "Man of Steel" had instead been an adaptation of both the John Byrne miniseries of the same name and the Jeph Loeb/Tim Sale miniseries "Superman For All Seasons".

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (03 December 2019 - 04:42 PM)

A take I just read: Man of Steel is shot with such a lack of lighting that it is easier to discern what is going on in a porn film.

@  Maximus Ambus : (03 December 2019 - 12:20 PM)

Making Soylant is harder then it looks, it's not like the movies, you have to keep whacking and hacking at the ingredient, it'll scream and fight, maybe bite but eventually it will go down.

@  Paladin : (03 December 2019 - 11:48 AM)

varies from person to person.

@  Benbot : (03 December 2019 - 11:34 AM)

It's an acquired taste

@  CORVUS : (03 December 2019 - 11:17 AM)

Soylent? Its pretty awful.

@  unluckiness : (03 December 2019 - 02:49 AM)

Depends on your denomination of Christianity

@  Patch : (02 December 2019 - 05:52 PM)

@Benbot Do they have a soy-free version? Like maybe just "Lent?"

@  Maximus Ambus : (02 December 2019 - 02:03 PM)

Just occurred to me 'Autobot' Megatron happened in Target 2006.

@  Benbot : (02 December 2019 - 11:48 AM)

have you tried Soylent? It's pretty good! https://soylent.com/

@  Paladin : (02 December 2019 - 10:01 AM)

i prefer free-range human usually. pain in the ass to hunt though...

@  TheMightyMol... : (02 December 2019 - 09:42 AM)

If your human is all bones, you may have purchased a skeleton by accident. Contact your grocer to inquire about exhange policies.

@  Maximus Ambus : (02 December 2019 - 09:31 AM)

Vegans are categorised as human therefore just fall under Soylant, they are usually all bones.

@  wonko the sane? : (01 December 2019 - 04:47 PM)

Cause... that latter one is technically all burgers anyway.

@  wonko the sane? : (01 December 2019 - 04:46 PM)

So... a burger made without meat, or a burger made with the meat taken from a vegan?

@  Maximus Ambus : (01 December 2019 - 04:22 PM)

I had a vegan burger last week, this week I'll give a vegan steak a shot.

@  wonko the sane? : (30 November 2019 - 12:37 PM)

a proper paradox would have broken the board. Nice try though.

@  Maximus Ambus : (30 November 2019 - 01:47 AM)

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (30 November 2019 - 12:01 AM)

I've got the admit. tubi tv is great. It's got a lot of stuff.. Including Super Sentai.

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 November 2019 - 10:35 PM)

There is frankly no better place to (legally) find schlock on the internet for free than Tubi TV

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 November 2019 - 10:33 PM)

It's got all the graphic violence and gratuitous nudity a late 80s OVA should have.

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 November 2019 - 10:32 PM)

Available for free with ads on Tubi TV.

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 November 2019 - 10:32 PM)

It's "Goku: Midnight Eye". Originally produced in the late 80s, it apparently wasn't dubbed until the late 90s given Steve Blum was the lead.

@  wonko the sane? : (29 November 2019 - 06:38 PM)

The description makes it sound like some high grade, mid 80's shlock. Which, frankly, is my groove.

@  TheMightyMol... : (29 November 2019 - 12:37 PM)

Was wondering how long it would take someone to ask.

@  wonko the sane? : (29 November 2019 - 09:58 AM)

okay, it's been like two days so far: what anime is this, cause I'm dying to know.

@  Steevy Maximus : (27 November 2019 - 09:23 PM)

You know you're in for a good time when an old anime starts with a crime lord uses roller skates in his cybernetic legs to skate down the side of the building, launches to a dock and into a getaway boat.

@  Pinkcolliebot : (26 November 2019 - 03:55 PM)

Hey Everyone I'm Making The TF Roll Out Short "Gotta Go Fast!"

@  Benbot : (26 November 2019 - 12:52 PM)

That's what I was hoping for. But here I am, at work the following day.

@  wonko the sane? : (26 November 2019 - 12:29 PM)

You say "die in bed" and I'm thinking "why is that a problem?".

@  fourteenwings : (26 November 2019 - 07:06 AM)

If you don't get out of bed ever your muscles will lock in super-uncomfortable ways and you may get blood clots

@  MEDdMI : (25 November 2019 - 08:53 PM)

You did nothing, and so rocks fall down and you die.

@  TheMightyMol... : (25 November 2019 - 08:35 PM)

But that's not you doing something, that's something being done to you.

@  MEDdMI : (25 November 2019 - 08:28 PM)

Unless a meteor crashes down on your bed while you're in it.

@  wonko the sane? : (25 November 2019 - 07:08 PM)

I've been trying for the last few hours to find an argument to counter this... and I can't do it.

@  TheMightyMol... : (25 November 2019 - 03:32 PM)

The most dangerous thing you can do is get out of bed in the morning. Everything else that happens is a consequence of that one terrible, terrible decision.

@  wonko the sane? : (25 November 2019 - 03:28 PM)

Driving, by itself, is dangerous. Anything done to compromise the concentration of the pilot just makes things worse.

@  Benbot : (25 November 2019 - 12:46 PM)

Actually, I think you could make a reasonable argument for saying driving with glasses is dangerous. That is, more dangerous than driving with contacts or perfect vision. You have poor peripheral vision with glasses.

Half way in. So far, same general opinion as last season. The writers who think website references and internet memes should be in the scripts need to go.

Finished the first episode and got through about half the second before my wife got too tired to continue. Mac & me was great. I'd say it might make it's way into my favorite episodes list. Atlantic Rim, so far, isn't nearly as strong.

Due to holiday busy only gotten through the first two.

Mac & Me was... wow... y'know I remember knowing as a kid that it would be garbage from the comercials and avoiding it, but I really had no idea the level of garbage this was. However it was bad in crazy super entertaining ways that made it very fun to see mst3k'd and just laugh at in general with my son.

Atlantic Rim was the opposite kind of bad. It was just bargain basement uncreatively awful in every single way. Bad acting, terrible script, unlikeable characters, horrible effects. The mst'ing of it made it just passably watchable but the level of flat crap film made it all less enjoyable than ep 1.

They really need to be more consistent. Each episode feels like it's handled by a different team, so when you get bad riffs on a bad movie it's a chore to watch.

Also, know you have Rick and Morty writers but don't hire them if they can't write original jokes. Reusing "SHOW ME WHAT YOU GOT!" was just obnoxious.

To be honest, the show has never been consistent in any of its incarnations. Think it's just the nature of the show. They have to build off of whatever movie they are riffing and sometimes that works better than others.

I made it through the gauntlet over the long weekend.  Overall, I enjoyed it a lot.  I'm happy to see this new incarnation trying new things, even if they aren't all entirely successful.  The musical numbers were pretty great.  The host segments in general seemed funnier to me than average.

 

I think it was during Killer Fish that Gypsy descended to retrieve the thing.  Her mouth moved but there was no joke.  That seemed like an egregious error.

 

M. Waverly and Gwoler started showing up in the theater with Gypsy.  I never did figure out what they were doing.  The silhouettes are often lost against the darkness of the movie.

 

A problem I've always had with MST is that I have trouble sitting through certain movies, even if the riffing is on point.  Killer Fish and Ator fit into that category for me.

 

I hope Netflix keeps the show going.  Six episodes felt like a good number for a drop.

Boom. Sat through the whole gauntlet in a single sitting, because I'm just that hardcore.

I didn't really have trouble getting through any of these films. After making through the 3 Coleman Francis films (The Beast of Yucca Flats, The Skydivers, and Red Zone Cuba), I can make it through pretty much anything MST3k throws at me.

Enjoyed it a lot, can't wait for more.

I know that they're trying to appeal to a wider audience and all, but I think that I would welcome some more "deep hurting" movies, compared to how most of the new stuff is low-budget '80's-and-on shlock.

Indeed. I'd love to see them tackle something like m"The Monolith Monsters", for example. Although I think either RiffTrax or cinematic Titanic took that one on at some point.

Still, there's plenty of deep hurting left out there that's probably easily accessible license-wise.

I can't be the only one on here who likes this show. For those who don't know, the show is about a guy who's shot into space and forced to watch bad movies. He builds robots who help him make fun of the movie.

It's a weird premise, but it works wonderfully.

For newcomers, I recommend the episodes Space Mutiny, Werewolf, Cave Dwellers and Pod People

What are your favorite episodes? Mine are Mitchell and Eegah. 

 

Also, can I just say that it's an absolute CRIME MST3K never did Yor: The Hunter From the Future? I know Rifftrax recently did it, but it's not the same. 

 

 


 

It even has Reb Brown from Space Mutiny in it.

There's a deep well of terrible animated movies that I would have loved to see the MST3k crew tackle, but they don't seem interested in taking on non-live action stuff.
