Weekend Discussion Thread: Dumbest Evil Scheme

Alert reader Gobi suggests:

Villains love to scheme, and MST villains are no exception. So, which schemes were sensible, in that given a modicum of luck and skillful execution, they had a reasonable chance at success. Contrarily, which schemes were bat-guano crazy; that is, either the goal itself was so ridiculous that any [...]

Weekend Discussion Thread: Update Those Celebrity Lookalikes

Alert reader Jonathan writes:

As we know, MST3k will always be encapsulated in a certain moment in time, mainly due to all the pop culture references. One of the most frequent manifestations of this are the in-movie riffing of celebrity/public figure look-a-likes.

Now, whenever I see “Teen-Age Strangler” I can’t help but think [...]

Weekend Discussion Thread: Favorite Steve Vance Posters

With the arrival of the latest set of episodes from Shout!Factory, alert regular Paul has this excellent suggestion:

Given that the new MST3k Volume XXIX DVD set contains a special extra feature on artist Steve Vance, the guy who illustrates the Shout Factory mini poster artwork, it would be a good time to [...]

Weekend Discussion Thread: Switcheroo!

WDT regular Sue, who is becoming a font of thread ideas, suggests:

My idea is: Switcheroo! If you could exchange one character in any MSTed movie for another, who would they be? I mean whom would they be? To make things more appropriate, funnier, weirder, whatever-er.

I’d switch out Ben Murphy’s Sam in [...]

Weekend Discussion Thread: MSTed Movie People and What they Think About MST3K

Two things happened recently that got me thinking.

First, I got sent a preview copy of the next Shout!Factory set recently and one of the most interesting extras on it was the interview with Walter George Alton, who played The Pumuman. And I was a little taken aback about his opinion of the [...]

Weekend Discussion Thread: Worst Facial Hair

Alert reader Sue emails to say:

While watching ESPN this morning, there was a brief segment on retired NFL star Brett Favre’s new look. Although only 44, he’s currently sporting a very thick, very white beard. All I could think of when I saw his picture was Cameron Mitchell’s Santa look in Space [...]

Weekend Discussion Thread: Lamest Leading LLLLady in a MSTed Movie

We’ve done “Lamest hero in a MSTed movie” but we’ve never really turned our attention to the “fairer sex.”

Who’s the most ridiculous female character in a MSTed movie?

I’m going to have to go with the lady astronauts in “King Dinosaur.” They achieve nothing and are simply ballast for the entire movie.
