An iconic story from the classic era of the British cult TV favorite comes to US big screens for one night only… and the cleaned-up FX as well as its deceptively simple tale hold up rather well.
One of the most inept films I’ve ever seen. Cheaply made, poorly directed, badly acted, oddly edited, and ultimately insultingly stupid.

A movie to make you despair of the found-footage conceit (if you weren’t already). Suddenly Twister looks like Shakespeare.
In what other ways, beyond breaking the fourth wall, could TV do something different? Or is stuff like this simply too arty for mainstream TV audiences? Why isn’t there room, on a hundred-plus channels, for something more arty?

I miss Joel and the bots so bad sometimes it hurts…
This is the best MST3K gift set yet, and not just because it includes a six-inch-tall, startlingly lifelike figurine of Gypsy, the robot stranded spaceman Joel Robinson created to run his orbital life raft.
I’ve actually never seen this movie. I have heard all the MST3K jokes about it, though, including the traditional singing of the classic holiday carol ‘Let’s Have a Patrick Swayze Christmas.’
