The cult comedy Mystery Science Theater 3000 (aka MST3K) returned to TV this weekend via Netflix. For anyone unfamiliar with the series, the show revolves around an astronaut (Jonah Ray) trapped on a satellite by a mad scientist (Felicia Day) and her idiot assistant (Patton Oswalt) and forced to watch B-movies with two robots named Tom and Crow.
The new season of Mystery Science Theater 3000 features several classic dinosaur/kaiju movies including REPTILICUS (1961, US Ver. Dir. Sidney W. Pink), THE BEAST FROM HOLLOW MOUNTAIN (1956, Dir. Edward Nassour), THE LAND THAT TIME FORGOT (1975, Dir. Kevin Connor), YONGARY: MONSTER OF THE DEEP (1967, Dir. Kim Ki-duk) and AT THE EARTH’S CORE (1976, Dir. Kevin Connor).
I’m at big fan of 1975′s THE LAND THAT TIME FORGOT, which in my opinion always enhances good Mystery Science Theater 3000, and so I found Jonah and the bot’s riffs on the film particularly amusing.
