Weekend Discussion Thread: Grand Theft Movie

Alert reader Larry suggests:

In the “Beast of Yucca Flats,’ Mike accuses para-deputy Jim Archer of stealing the movie. I would argue that the mom and dad of yucca flats were the guilty party. but it had me wondering, who else in MST’d history was guilty of stealing a scene or movie when no one was looking. Or caring.

What’s your pick?

RIP Dick Miller

Dick Miller, a prolific screen actor perhaps best known for his role as Murray Futterman in 1984’s “Gremlins,” has died. He was 90. Miller worked frequently for Roger Corman, and MSTies will remember his appearances in three Corman movies, episodes 311- IT CONQUERED THE WORLD, 511- GUNSLINGER and 806- THE UNDEAD.

Variety has the story.

Thanks to Paul for the heads up.

Weekend Discussion Thread: Catch Phrase-itis

Okay we may have done something like this before but…

This week we had one of those weird days: first there was several inches of ice and snow, then WARM weather kicked in for a day or so, and the result was FOG. So at my office, I stood by the window looking at the fog, and, to nobody in particular — and KNOWING nobody within earshot would get the reference — I said: “I say it’s foggy!”

So have you ever blurted out a catchphrase knowing full well nobody who heard it would get it?

Please keep those thread ideas coming!
