Weekend Discussion Thread: Favorite ‘Wizard of Oz’ Reference

I cannot believe we haven’t done this one, but apparently we haven’t.

This month was the 75th anniversary of the debut of “The Wizard of Oz,” (the movie I argue is the last, perhaps the only, commonly shared experience in America) and on another forum somebody has been asking “How many ‘Wizard of [...]

Weekend Discussion Thread: Trailer Talk

Alert reader “Gobi” writes:

If you’re like me, and I know I am, then you enjoy movie trailers that begin with “In a world where…”. So, why not use that style for a MSTIED movie?

“In a world where concierges have goat legs and speech impediments, one man must do battle with The [...]

Report from The Hollywood Show

Our roving reporter Paul “Projected Paul” DerHagopian attended The Hollywood Show autograph convention held recently at the LAX Westin hotel. Here’s his report. All photos were taken by him and his cohorts.


I met John Saxon from 512- Mitchell. I mentioned to him that I heard a rumor that he was annoyed that [...]

Weekend Discussion Thread: It’s a Summer Picnic and Everyone’s Comin’

Alert regular Sue is back with:

But oh my yes (said in my best little old Wisconsin lady church voice), it’s time for the church or community annual summer picnic and potluck, For example…

That salad bar courtesy of “The Truck Farmer” looks so good. But should that nice Mr. Rowsdower have brought [...]

Weekend Discussion Thread: Favorite “Finishing a Sentence” Riffs

Alert regular “Sitting Duck” suggests:

My topic suggestion concerns tack-on riffs. By this I mean riffs where the riffer adds on something to what a person in the movie just said. For example, my favorite occurs in the “A Day at the Fair” short, from Code Name: Diamond Head. During the cake judging, [...]

Weekend Discussion Thread: Mini Golf and MSTed Movies

Alert reader Troy suggests:

We all know Season 1 Joel was quite fond of pointing out scenes that would “make a great miniature golf course.” So my question is, what other MSTied movies would make a great (or terrible) miniature golf course? For example: The Space Mutiny hole would look remarkably like an [...]

Weekend Discussion Thread: Favorite Riff from the KTMA Shows

Alert regular Brandon suggests:

Since we’re reviewing the KTMA episodes again, I thought a good discussion would be what riffs from the KTMA era do MSTies find actually funny, since most of the time the material was hit-and-miss, and they were still figuring the show out. One riff that I love is from [...]

Weekend Discussion Thread: Your Favorite Parody Host Segments

On Twitter, E. A. Bruce, aka @NeoMyers, asked:

Have you ever done a piece on favorite “genre-bending” episodes? Like “Last of Wild Horses”?

I assume what he means by “‘genre-bending’ episodes” are the ones where one or more host segments take a familiar convention, sci-fi or otherwise, and parody/satirize it. His fave [...]
