MST3K

MST3K Rewatch Week 69 - Lost Continent

Rock climbing, everyone.  Rock climbing.

Yeah, that pretty much sums this movie up.  It's a simple plot of a group of people trying to recover an item on a crashed rocket.  The rocket just so happened to crash atop a ridiculously tall mountain that hides the Savage Land.

"Geeze, everything is a speech with these guys."

And to pad this damned movie out, they shove in twenty straight minutes of climbing that mountain.  It's almost surprising how many jokes the guys got out of it, because a lot of it plays silently.

"Joel, why are we watching this awful mountain climbing sequence?"  "Because it's there."

This episode is a classic, for the padding, and how bad it is.  And it mostly delivers.
