    MST3K rating ***


    There’s some good and very few great moments but overall this season is a shaggy dog. The writing, concept, technical execution and performances are largely disappointing and if this were my first intro to MST3K I wouldn’t be into it at all. But I stick with it like Linus in the pumpkin patch coz I know, or hope, that my slowly diminishing faith will be rewarded.


    So I was…

    The only good idea in this movie was killing off the annoyingly unfunny Howard Busgang first and early.

    Excellent follow-up to its predecessor!

    ★★½

    Not my pick for tonite’s family movie, so a discreetly begrudging rewatch for me, a rewatch and partial nap for my missus and I suppose a somewhat enjoyable passage of time for the teenager.
    Tempted to lower the rating overall if it weren’t for the Dr and Scott Evil scenes which were still so very good.

    This 13th season is, sadly, lacking in the quality riff writing department.
    And host segment department.

    And I Only Am Escaped To Tell Thee…

    The trailer looked far more intriguing, passionate, moody and stylish than the plodding, monotone, unpleasant nonsense that the missus and I ended up sitting through tonight.
    Admittedly my hopes were further raised by the following promotional tagline:  
    “Wuthering Heights directed by Alfred Hitchcock”
    Alas, it’s nothing like that at all. 
    Dreary, dull and frustratingly static. 
    Disappointment city!

    Rewatched it tonight, this time with my missus.
    And I still sobbed my eyes out at “Somewhere”

    For the first 20ish minutes I was unable to objectively 'enjoy' this reboot.
    Each shot, each scene, each performance was being questioned and compared against the original film or at least my fuzzy recollection of it.
    I was in high school the very first time I watched Robert Wise's 1961 "West Side Story". It had surprisingly been recommended by my best friend when we discussed musicals after I said I didn't like them. He said this was the only one…
