MST3K: THE DEADLY MANTIS: Professor Bobo sends this week's experiment, a giant killer bug movie, to the Satellite while arming a thermonuclear device to destroy the Earth; Mike inadvertently helps, then is hunted by Pearl in her Winnebago rocketship. Season 8 is still getting on its feet but things are improving; Bill Corbett is growing into his role as the new Crow T. Robot, the riffing is getting back on track, and the overall plot arc is starting to take shape with the first big twist. The movie selection remains a problem in early season 8 as they're still stuck with Universal's back catalog titles; who wants to mock a mediocre giant bug movie when there are terrible giant bug movies out there begging for a skewering? 3/5.

My fear this Hitler/Nazi name calling sort of desensitized the tragic events that lead to and during World War 2.


That was exactly the point of that writer's essay on the topic.  It's a ludicrous and immature comparison that has quite literally no basis in rational reality. That does not stop a lot of people who only know arguing from "rhetoric" from doing it.

I think the biggest problem is that most of the Americans don't understand the reason why we asked for immigrates to migrate in American in the 1800's and the early 1900's... But then again most Americans don't know that the Democrat party was the party of slavery and the KKK and the Republican party was made to counter it... I know people would never believe the Republican party actually started in the 1850's...

The BFG

From the novel of the same title by Roald Dahl.

I have only see 2 or 3 of the many films based on the works of Dahl. Though, that is more films than of his books I have read, which is 0. He's never been my cup of tea. Though, I did enjoy this movie well enough.

The title character was one of the more interesting film characters I have come across, as he was trapped between the world of the Beings (or us) and the world of the Giants, of which, he was one.

Still, he had more choice as to what happened to him, then Sophie, the little girl in the film, who had no choice as to what happened to her, and I can hardly think of a worst fate, then being without choice in your life.

A surprising amount of depth in the film. For when has 2 people not gone to war, because they perceived each other as being different. But . . .?! Still . . .?! Two people can put aside their differences and work together for the common good.

Though, the most surprising thing I found in the film was the amount of humor in it, which I quite enjoyed.

A Spielberg film, and, while the Company has distributed other of Spielberg's films, this is the 1st that he has made--apparently--for them directly. And we will see how long this relationship lasts. Though, there is a rumor in Hollywood, that he is somewhat unhappy at how he and his films have been treated by his previous studio Universal/NBC/Comcast.

Next time: who knows?

He had an younger brother who also wanted to do his part for the war effort, but, being too young to join his older brother in the Navy, young Walter lied about his age and joined the ambulance service. With which he was shipped to Europe just as the Armistice was signed. Even then young Walter was showing signs of being a cartooning genius, decorating his ambulance with cartoon characters.

James "Scotty" Doohan
actor
WWII Canadian army
Rising to officer rank
And one of the few men who can say their life was saved by smoking. Accidentally shot by his own side on D-Day, he would have been killed, but one of the bullets struck a silver cigarette case, a gift from his brother. The case being in his left breast pocket.

What was unofficial is now official. The other Vice President nominee is Senator Tim Kaine, Democrat of Virginia. You can get a better look at him, if you want, at this week's Democrat Convention.

Today my sickbed movie marathon started with Stephen Spielberg 'S historical biopic LINCOLN. Love this movie but my fever has my emotions so screwed up that I was bawling uncontrollably at the end.  I am SO tired of being sick! 5/5

"Three the Hard Way" (1974)
Small | Large

Blaxploitation's three biggest stars - Fred "The Hammer" Williamson, "Gentleman" Jim Brown and Jim "Enter the Dragon" Kelly - team up to stop a white supremacist group who plan to commit nationwide black genocide. Many butts get kicked, lots of stuff blows up, bullets fly, and some hot girls take their tops off, too. This is a better than average blaxploitation epic, packed with lots of funky action. Outa-site, man!!

FROM THE BADMOVIES.ORG ARCHIVES
ImageThe Giant Claw - Slime drop

Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

Lesson Learned:
  • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
