Weekend Discussion Thread: Your Favorite Voice-Overs and Narrations

“Sitting Duck” writes:

One of the laziest methods of presenting exposition in a movie is to have a voiceover guy read it off. So naturally this technique is used in several MST3K films. So which of these voiceover guys do you think particularly sticks out. I’m going with the one from Robot Holocaust. That guy was cropping up everywhere in the film.

I’m going to expand this to include all narrations and voice overs, and let’s include the shorts too.

I gotta go with Ted Husing, Ross Allen’s “boyfriend” in the short “Catching Trouble.” He seems almost as appalled by Ross as we are.

What’s your pick?

    MST3K: Beast of Yucca Flats, hands down.

    Non-MST3K (Classic): The astounding gibberish emitted by Criswell throughout Night of the Ghouls, even more so than his “future events such as these will affect you in future” blather Plan Nine from Outer Space.

    Non-MST3K (Modern): Dune. Easy. “A beginning is a very delicate time. Know then that it is the year 10191. The known universe is ruled by the Padisha Emperor Shaddam IV…my father. In this time, the most precious substance in the universe is the spice melange. The spice extends life. The spice expands consciousness. The spice is vital to space travel.” SHUT UP SHUT UP SHUT UP SHUT UP

    Huggybear:
    Since no one has mentioned it, i’ll go with the voice -over guy in “The Phantom Planet”.

    Stop asking things!

    THIS IS ONLY THE BEGINNING… ONLY THE BEGINNING… ONLY THE BEGINNING….

    Also, the lady who contacts the shuttle
    “Jupiter Base 1 to Pegasus 4, you are off course, correct your position!” “IMMEDIATELY, YOUNG MAN!”

    @51 – That Dune narration gets worse – just as she starts to fade, she comes back with, “…Oh – I almost forgot…” What was the point of THAT?
