  1. And it tracks. When Disney+ in the EU went live, they had the original X-Men trilogy. The closest we have is Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer. Looking around online, it looks like the deal goes until 2022. So, we'll get New Mutants in 2023.
  2. A reason I saw online: HBO had an existing agreement with 20th Century Fox. Because the film was produced under Fox, HBO gets initial streaming rights. With HBO Max launching soon, Disney would basically be giving them something to lead with by sending it straight to Digital. It's a cynical reason but a reason.
  3. Romancing The Stone: Witty adventure film with great performances by Kathleen Turner and Michael Douglas. Kathleen Turner in particular is a hoot in this one. Films: 54 Mst3k/Rifftrax/Other Assisted: 12
  4. Transformers: The Bayformers films have not aged well. At all! Still, I will say that I appreciate Megan Fox more in the film than I used to. This is still the least bad of the them but that's like saying something is the least painful major surgery you've had. Kill Bill Vol. 1: The better of the two parts. Most of the set pieces work pretty well and, having watched a bootleg of The Whole Bloody Affair, I do kind of prefer the stylistic choices of the censorship in this one over the actual version. Kill Bill Vol. 2: While it's not as good as part 1, Uma definitely should have been nominated for this one. Films: 53 Mst3k/Rifftrax/Other Assisted: 12
  5. The Sinister Urge: An Ed Wood film about cops trying to shut down a ponography ring or something like that. Everyone is terrible in the film so it's kind of hard to care about anyone. Prince of Space: A black and white Japanese Sci-Fi film about aliens invading and one of the most over-powered protagonists in any film I can remember. Hilarious on it's own, better with MST3k. Films: 50 Mst3k/Rifftrax/Other Assisted: 12
  6. Cave Dwellers: A Conan Knock-off. It's a thing. Captain America: The First Avenger: One of the things I enjoyed about the early MCU films is that they all seemed to try to be very different kinds of films. We have a World War II action film this time. It works pretty well for what it is though the Skinny Cap at the beginning is still a bit disarming. Geography Club: Cute coming of age film that has some problems here and there. Films: 50 Mst3k/Rifftrax/Other Assisted: 10
  7. Big Business: Bette Midler and Lilly Tomlin basically play two different roles as two sets of twins. It's a fun enough film. One of the Bette Midler's has a gay couple as her minions which is something young me never picked up on. Troop Beverly Hills: It's basically Bad New Bears only with Girl Scouts. It's a cute film and Shelly Long does a pretty good job of it! The Wild, Wild World of Batwoman: Someone decided, "Hey, that Batman show is big. Why don't we make a knock-off film starring a woman and she has a ton of girls that work for her with a mad scientist who has a pill that makes people dance! Also, we need to hire girls so why don't we just hire the strippers at the bar that got shut down. Oh, DC Comics is sueing us. Well, we might actually win that court case. We won." Seriously, the production of this thing is more interesting than the actual movie. Films: 48 Mst3k/Rifftrax/Other Assisted: 9
  8. Like I was saying with Hulk, there is a real feel that the larger MCU elements were kind of grafted into an existing script. I'm probably going to watching Captain America before the week is out so it'll be interesting checking out the production on that one to see if it's similar in how it was handled.
  9. Fair enough. It just felt to me like he had the most interesting scenes of anyone in the film outside of Leo during the Lancer sequence. But yeah, like 20% of all Oscars, it was likely more a Psuedo-Lifetime Achievement Oscar than one for what he actually did. The Incredible Hulk: Norton isn't a terrible Bruce Banner but this definitely feels like the MCU stuff got grafted onto an existing script and the fact that it has all but been dragged out of continuity might be why I had to go out of my way to find it online. Yours, Mine, and Ours: I really haven't seen Lucille Ball in that much outside of I Love Lucy so I figured sure. It's a cute film. Thor: I sometimes think I don't give this one enough credit. Does it get dull at times? Yeah but Branagh is trying to do something interesting. Also, it's weird to have a credits song in a Marvel film that's not Guardians. Films: 46 Mst3k/Rifftrax/Other Assisted: 8
  10. Daniel Isn't Real: An okay film but I'm rather meh on it. It has moments of trying to be Fight Club but it also has some stuff that comes out of nowhere and just doesn't work with the tone set up at the beginning. Fun and Fancy Free: Disney kept on doing package films in the 50s. Mickey and the Beanstalk is fun enough while the other, Bongo, is pretty meh. The connecting scenes are pretty meh also. Monster-a-go-go: Watched some MST3k this afternoon. The film itself is an unfinished mess that never goes anywhere and has a non-twist at the end that's pretty bad. Manos: The Hands of Fate: It's a classic bad movie. I've watched it dozens of times. The riffing is the only thing that makes it tolerable. Once Upon A Time In Hollywood: So... I'm not sure what to think here. Brad Pitt does a great job, definitely earned his Oscar. As much as I dig Margot Robbie in the film, you could have cut her role back and nothing would have been lost. For that matter, Tarantino could have cut around a half hour from the film and nothing would have been lost. The fact that there's an extended version just boggles my mind!

  11. Night of the Living Dead vs Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure
  12. I was actually playing Lufia 2. Not really in the mood for a Platformer right now while a SNES JRPG was striking my fancy. Mandy: Weird and trippy as all fuck. I'm not sure how I feel. Heathers: Was trying to organize a Movie Night for my D&D group over Discord but no one could make it so I just decided to pick a film and start watching it. One of my favorites and definitely something that I can always come back to. The Producers: The musical version. Parts of the film are way too stagy but I still enjoyed it all. Films: 40 Mst3k/Rifftrax/Other Assisted: 6
  13. Duck Tales The Movie: Treasure of the Lost Lamp: Wanted something in the background while I played a video game. I remember rewatching the VHS of it like a million times. It's okay. Animation is slightly above the quality level of the tv show. Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie: Everyone's non-major character's Australian accent leaks through on a regular basis. It's okay, nothing special. Jack The Giant Killer: Watched with the Rifftrax. I'm realizing how much MST3k and Rifftrax I'm gonna be watching in the next few weeks. The movie itself has some alright stop-motion animation, some weird acting choices. Films: 37 Mst3k/Rifftrax/Other Assisted: 6
  14. Racket Girls: It's a 50s movie about mobsters and women wrestlers but the wrestling parts are all padding and the plot is less than interesting. Red Zone Cuba: Vanity project that still leads to some good MST3k riffs. The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension: While not as good as I was being led to believe it would be, still pretty entertaining and something I would watch again. Films: 35 Mst3k/Rifftrax/Other Assisted: 5
