MST3K Rewatch Week 13 - The Girl in Gold Boots

Ahh, the Scifi Era.  I'll admit, I liked them trying to do a storyline during the host segments, made them sometimes more watchable, and still be silly.  They make things impossible to follow in out of order reruns though, and if episodes lose the rights to the movies, that became problematic.  I can see the upside, but the downside is far greater.

I don't really have a whole lot to say about this one.  Which isn't bad!  I remember when I first saw the episode, I kinda loathed it, but this morning I actually found myself openly laughing at quite a lot, and chuckling almost straight through.  The riffs are rock solid, and the skits play off well with the movie.  And this is a very musical episode.  The movie has way too much dancing and music, and the host segments do two musical numbers.  Well one is just music from the movie to a dancing Crow.  But still.

This was produced and directed by Ted V. Mikels?! NOOOO!

Ohh yes, I have experience with you Ted.  Shudder.  And the sad thing is, I think he was a better movie maker in the 70s!

I love the guys watching the movie, and the acting is so bad, they just have NOTHING to say.  They just scoff and laugh.  Because really, what else can you do when it's just that bad?

And while this may be a better looking, better made movie than Mikels' more recent fare, it's still pretty terrible and has all his tell tale quirks.  The acting, the writing, the terrible editing!  Seriously, the movie has someone literally appear on screen because of the terrible cut.  I like the guys noticing it and calling it teleporting.  Great jokes there.  And his sense of geography remains atrocious.  He doesn't set up a location, and just plops cameras down to film certain areas, so even though people might be in the same place, they all look like their own separate locales, and it's terrible.  Just...gah.

I will be forever scarred by the sight of Brain Guy dancing in a gold dress.

"Well met, fair Critter!"
