MST3K Rewatch Week 3 - Bloodlust

Or, "Indiana Nerd and the Temple of Dork!"

This was another fun one, but I don't think it was as good as Creeping Terror.  Most of my laughs came from the short before the main feature, "Unlce Jim's Dairy Farm".  That had some great lines, poking fun at the kids, the farm, everything.  I was laughing almost the entire way through it.

But once Bloodlust started, I quieted down a bit.  As did the movie.  The audio on the feature was weak, and I think some of the jokes faltered for that reason alone.  Distractions around me didn't help much.

I still laughed a lot, but it wasn't as good as what had gone before.

The story was your basic take on "The World's Most Dangerous Game" but instead of the prey being offered the job of being hunted, the victims stumble upon the island hunting grounds first, and the hunter has his previous kills stuffed and on display.  There's some good jokes there, and the gang pokes good fun at Robert Reed, future star of the Brady Bunch, and that's where a lot of the humour stems from this time around.

Still, lesser MST3K is enjoyable MST3K.

I don't know if I'm going to post these for *every* rewatch as I work through the DVDs, since I don't really have anything to add that hasn't been spoken about the show in the past 20 years, but it gives me something to post about, and maybe some of you might like to chime in with your own particular thoughts and memories.
