MST3K Rewatch Week 109 - Red Zone Cuba

Short - Speeh: Platform Posture and Appearance - Always good to start things off with some old school educational films like this, as a pallete cleanser.

Red Zone Cuba -  Ahhh, the movie that isn't afraid to have no plot at all and just people staring for the first ten whole minutes.  Seriously, what even happens in this movie?  The plot, as near as I can tell, is about a group of escaped cons who get suckered into joining the army during the Bay of Pigs affair, captured by the Cubans, and escape again.

That SOUNDS like a capable plot, but no.  Somehow the movie does nothing, repeats itself ad nauseum, and just kinda stares off into space.

"John Carradine!  Was he always 100 years old??"

I gotta admit, I LOVE the theme song.  It's been stuck in my head all day.

I am astounded how much nowhere this movie goes.  You somehow see lots of things happen, while at the same time, nothing happens.  And I don't care if my comments are repetitious on this review, since it keeps circling the same drain, so am I! ;)

"HaiCUBA!"  is the single BEST callback ever.
