Product Description

Product Description

From the makers of the highly successful cult classic TV series comes Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Movie - one of the most outrageous, most irreverent, and most hilarious big-screen spoofs ever! A mad scientist, in his quest for world domination, concocts a diabolical scheme to subject the human race to the worst movie ever made: 1955's This Island Earth. It's up to one test subject's quick wit, sharp sense of humor, and utter intolerance for cinematic garbage to foil the plans of the scientist and to save the Earth. Experience the hijinks and low jabs of Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Movie - where the worse the movie is, the better time you'll have!

Amazon.ca

The cult television show (in which a hapless space explorer and his robot pals are forced to watch and deliver a hilarious running commentary on bad movies) makes a successful transition to the big screen as Mike and the 'bots lay waste to the '50s sci-fi yarn This Island Earth (a painfully stiff would-be epic that's actually a cut above the usual MST3K fare). While ardent fans may be a little miffed that more advantage isn't taken of the expanded theatrical venue (aside from a tad more scatological humor than usual, the content here would fit in comfortably as a regular episode of the series), the nonstop, hyper-literate salvo of comedy riffs that run the gamut from references to Tommy Chong's backyard to Yes album covers more than make up for any conceptual complacency. Be prepared to laugh till it aches. --Andrew Wright --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

MST3K (Mystery Science Theater 3000) was a ground-breaking genre-buster. American movie culture had already seen the rise of the horror-movie show, usually with outrageous and witty hosts like Elvira or the unforgettable Zachary. However, MST3K truly integrated the concept of audience response. HAve you ever gotten together with friends to watch a cheesy sci-fi or horror movie, only to find yourselves ad-libbing your own wisecracks into the dialogue? That is the whole MST3K concept. Mike Nelson and his two robot friends Tom Servo and Crow are forced by an evil scientist to watch the worst movies imaginable in an attempt to break their spirits. However, throughout the film, we see their silhouettes against a movie screen as they quip their way through the entire movie. For instance, as a meteor crashes in the movie, we hear one of the robots say, "Oh no! Tinkerbell's goin' down! Pull up, Tink!". In MST3K: The Movie, the trio is forced to watch the 1950's sci-fi sleeper "This Island Earth" We watch them as they watch the movie, ad-libbing the entire script. The original dialogues are left in, so the result is a text within a text. A concept hard to describe, and even harder not to enjoy.

Format: DVD
"Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Movie" -- it sounds very grand and impressive, doesn't it? But except for a couple of extra sets, the movie version of this snarky little series is pretty much the same as the episodes -- a painfully bad movie that Mike Nelson and his sarcastic robot pals relentlessly mock.

As explained by evil Dr. Forrester ("I'm a NAUGHTY BOY!"), he has trapped Mike on the Satellite of Love, and is plying him with terrible movies to see what breaks him. This is apparently part of his evil plan to conquer the world.

Meanwhile on the Satellite of Love, everything is pretty much normal -- Gypsy is running the ship, Mike is running on a giant hamster wheel (complete with water bottle!) and Crow is trying to tunnel back to Earth. After a near-fatal hull breach ("Mommy mommy mommy I LOVE YOU, MAAAAAAAAAAAA..."), the guys are called in to watch their latest movie.

Unfortunately, that movie is "This Island Earth," a pretentious sci-fi flick that was apparently made up as they went along. A bunch of rather dumb scientists are called by a secret organization of suspiciously large-skulled people who are obviously aliens. Immediately the rugged Carl Meecham decides to break out of the place (you volunteered to go, idiot) along with his required love interest -- and soon they find themselves whisked onto a flying saucer and headed for the planet Metaluna. Of course, things go downhill after that.

Despite the "The Movie" tag, this movie is basically just a slightly expanded episode of the series. The guys get to be a little cruder in their language, and we see a couple more rooms on the Satellite of Love when Mike and the robots try to hail Earth using a hokey-looking communicator. Of course, it all goes horribly wrong.

This movie has a sad history. Gramercy was after the MST3k crew to do a movie for some time. When they finally got started and came up with an excellent finished product, it was butchered horribly by studio executives. Many of the wisecracks were dumbed down, the result being the movie has none of the obscure pop culture references that give every episode of the show such great replay value. Also, a host segment in which meteors cut off oxygen and the bots race hilariously to save Mike from suffocation was cut completely. Plus, the ending was completely changed. Inthe original ending, Mike and Servo use their interociter to muatte an ant and send it to Deep 13, where it promply attacked Dr. Forrester. Crow is nowhere to be found, but then we see him back below decks, using the chainsaw from Tom's room in another escape attempt. This ending is much funnier, and also explains why Crow picked up the chainsaw. In the final version, this makes absolutely no sense. Still, the movie is very watchable as it is.

This has to be the best Mst3k episode/movie of all time! The cast (only 5 people) was spectacular, and the movie they did was This Island Earth, which is pretty bad for a stupid sci-fi (you call it sci-fi?)movie.
The story of This Island Earth is A big, deep voiced scientist flys to some location in some state (Why don't they tell us where he's going? WHY?) and lands in a airfield, only to find his plane haywire. His plane turns green (or as Mike says, "Well, now I have a refreshing mintt flavor."), and his "sidekick," who looks and sounds like Wilt Chamberlain, investigates the plane attack which should've killed him but didn't. Dammit!
Then, they build this what-cha-ma-call it dohickie lokking talking device and talk with a guy white REALLY white hair, and has a big lump for a forehead. He's the alien. (Oh yeah, a big lump the size of a cucumber is going to hide your identity). Things that didn't make sense: Why did they go to that planet without the oh-so precious element they needed? And, why does the lead woman in the film have torpedo-shaped breasts? (My mom found that out)
Great lines:"I'm not an alien," "This Island Earth can be yours if the price is right!", and my favorite "Then I ram my editor down your throat and lay my egs in your chest, but i'm not an alien!"
