A bit random, but with MST3K's new season coming ever closer, what are some movies you would like to see riffed, newer or older, and is Sharknado specifically on that list?
Hell no. Sharknado is a deliberately bad movie. It’s fun to see it on, say, Rifftrax live, but MST3K should take on older fair where intentionally stupid wasn’t the thing, but cheap seriousness - either because they didn’t care and wanted to make a buck or stuff they seriously thought was good but, well, not. That’s why Birdemic is so much more entertaining to see than Sharknado - that’s a movie that the director took completely seriously despite it being… well, there you go.
No, I’d like to see more stuff like Jesse James Meets Frankenstein’s Daughter, They Saved Hitler’s Brain - B-Movies that are properly cheesy and confusing and… well, unintentionally dumb.
