    First Spaceship on Venus

    ★★½

    I like the stuff on Venus. The Venusians are delightfully goofy.

    MST3K rating: 5/10

    Very strange vibe to this episode, especially to the host segments, as the Best Brains crew continues to figure out how the show should work. Some good riffs but not very noteworthy on the whole.

    Samurai Rebellion

    ★★½

    Unfortunately, this did not improve on rewatch like I hoped - if anything, the overlong and talky first 100 minutes detracted from my enjoyment of the awesome last 20 this time, rather than the inverse. Simply put, the film lacks the focus, precision, and vivid imagery necessary to make this approach work, as showcased in the far superior Kwaidan. Along with the director's Seppuku, I have a hard time imagining any modern audience with the patience to sit through this…

    Was not expecting Nick Nolte to return as Hulk's dad, defeat Thanos, absorb the Infinity Stones, and become the MCU's secret big bad. Really glad they tied it into Hulk 2003 after all!

    I told my communist friend Ryan that I was considering hate-watching these and he insisted I do it as penance for showing him many terrible films this year.

    Goddammit, Ryan. No pain I gave you compares to this. We're even forever.
