Yeah, it’s actually been fully remastered.

Someone…remastered…Manos?


#103

The Master would not approve.


#104

Yep. One crazy, beautiful bastard.


#105

WOW. Well why didn’t he have the basic decency to make it a Kickstarter so we could all feel good about contributing to it and stuff?

(Definitely planning on attending the RiffTrax event. Should be a unique experience. Imagine coming up with all new jokes for a movie people have seen you joke about a million times.)

Um…

I figured this thread got bumped due to the AV Club’s recent posting of their Top 10 Essential MST3K episodes. Turns out I was completely full of shit.


#108

Ha! I guess because: I didn’t check; that’s why!


#109

I’m watching Space Mutiny. How did they get away with just straight up stealing footage from BSG?


#110

They were apparently able to license the footage from universal. I’ve always found it more perplexing that mike and the bots don’t comment on it.


#111

One of, if not the, best eps in my mind. And I too wondered how/why the blatant BSG shots weren’t mentioned at all.

Ho, ho, hooooo!


#112

Going from memory here, but I remember reading on the fan wiki that they never mentioned it because the crew simply didn’t recognize the BSG shots until after the episode was in the can and it was too late. IIRC, Space Mutiny was post-Trace, and I think he was the big sci-fi geek.


#113

Not sure how that’s possible. BSG should have been right in their wheelhouse age-wise. At least the visuals. I mean I’m sure it’s true if that’s what they said but it kind it seems so bizarre. Those were pretty iconic styles of ships.


#114

Wow, you’re right. I thought this was an earlier episode, but I went to look it up in the episode guide and it came after that book was made (it goes to Season 6). I guess it all blends together for me after awhile.


#115

Somehow I missed this post 6-and-a-half years ago. Those Ektachrome shots are amazingly different from the film in which Joel commented, “Every shot in this movie looks like someone’s last known photograph.”

Space Mutiny is top 5.
