RiffTrax: Live – Space Mutiny, Fallen Kingdom Review, Murder at the Marina, The Disaster Artist Review, and News

RiffTrax Live: Space Mutiny

I didn’t get the photos organized in time for my post last week, but I wanted to give you guys a taste of the experience.

This probably wasn’t the best RiffTrax show, although it had some incredibly funny moments.

MST3K (Mike, Bill, and Kevin) did this movie, and I’ve seen that version at least a dozen times. So while I admire their determination to bring new jokes to the film, repeating very few from the MST3K version, it just didn’t hit all the notes. Because of course, the best jokes were taken. (The moment you see the Valerian women, you think Stevie Nicks, but since MST3K used that, the guys came up with another singer. And yet your mind still screamed Stevie Nicks.)

That said, it’s still the perfect film to riff. Most of the budget was spent acquiring old Battlestar Galactica footage, which they somehow manage to make worse. The vehicles driven on the space ship look like a cross between a bumper car, a golf cart, and a waxing machine. Many sets are reused (and it’s obvious) and some scenes are reused. There is even a scene after a character is murdered where she still appears in place on the bridge. (‘I loved your funeral.’) It embraces all that was cheesy and bad about the 80’s, including early special effects and video games, all while coming out in 1988. Yeah, really.

And of course, I have some pre-show screen shots to show you:
And just so you can see it really was Battlestar Galactica footage...
Next RiffTrax: Live is August 25 - KRULL!

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom Review

Beginning a few years after the previous film, Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard) and Owen (Chris Pratt) go back to the island to save the dinosaurs before the volcano destroys everything. But all is not as it seems… Dino chaos ensues.
The last film disappointed me. The characters weren’t very likeable and the script had a ton of plot holes and stupid mistakes.
This one was definitely a step up. Even though the basic plotline is similar to The Lost World – (slight spoiler) – a group is gathering the dinosaurs with a nefarious agenda.
The effects and sets are spectacular. Ironically, I recently re-watched Jurassic Park and those dinosaur special effects are on par with today’s work.
The story goes in a really unique direction, especially the ending, and I will give them that. It takes the dinos in a new direction, but also people. (See the film and then really think about the implications.)
The characters are bit more likeable this time around. Big plus there.
If you liked the last one, you’ll like this one. If the last one didn’t quite do it for you, this one is better. It’s a little rehash mixed with some fresh material.

Murder at the Marina by Ellen Jacobson

In 2013 I told my mother that my husband and I had decided to move aboard a sailboat full-time in New Zealand and head off cruising in search of adventure. Like any good mother would, she worried about our safety, but she was supportive of our crazy plan.

Then two movies came out that same year which alarmed her—“All is Lost” and “Captain Phillips.”

All is Lost” (starring Robert Redford) is about a man sailing solo in the Indian Ocean when his boat starts taking on water, eventually forcing him to abandon ship. Although it was critically acclaimed, many in the sailing community panned the movie for being unrealistic in terms of the lack of critical safety equipment on board and the decisions he made. I tried to explain to my mother that the probability of our boat sinking was quite small, but I don't think she believed me.

Captain Phillips” (starring Tom Hanks) was inspired by a true story of a freighter being hijacked by pirates off the coast of Somalia. Once she realized that these weren't Johnny Depp kind of pirates, we were forbidden from sailing in that area.

We ended up having such a great time cruising in New Zealand (and didn't sink our boat or get hijacked by pirates), that we ended up buying another sailboat back in the States. Our adventures and misadventures buying a boat and living aboard full-time inspired my light-hearted, humorous cozy mystery, “Murder at the Marina.” Of course, now my mom is going to worry that we might discover a dead body aboard our boat, like my main character, Mollie McGhie, did.

Murder at the Marina” available at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Google Play, and iTunes. Find out more at and follow along on Twitter @Ellen__Jacobson and Facebook @EllenJacobsonAuthor.

The Disaster Artist Review

This is the true story of Tommy Wiseau and how he came to make the horrible film The Room. (Which was riffed brilliantly by RiffTrax: Live.)
From IMDB: When Greg Sestero, an aspiring film actor, meets the weird and mysterious Tommy Wiseau in an acting class, they form a unique friendship and travel to Hollywood to make their dreams come true.
James Franco directs and stars in this film, which also features his brother Dave as Greg. While I admire Franco’s passion for the subject matter – how did this horrible director/actor/writer create a film so bad it would develop a cult following – the one thing it fails to do is give us any more than we already know about Tommy Wiseau. (Other than to confirm he was crazy and a bit of a jerk.)
Both brothers are great in their roles. James nails Tommy and it’s almost eerie.
Some scenes are hard to watch. Could someone really be that delusional?
Where did Tommy get the six million to fund this film? Where is he from? How old is he? No one knows, and this film provides no answers.
Interesting to watch just because I’ve seen RiffTrax rip The Room. But it didn’t do a lot for me. Your experience may vary.

Ninja News

The Contemplative Cat had a really fascinating post:
Lustron Corporation, a division of Chicago Vitreous Enamel Corporation, was founded in 1947 and began to construct 15,000 homes in that year and then 30,000 (according to this info above) in 1948. The houses cost between $8,500 and $9,500.
These houses were unique, to say the least: all steel.
The houses are made of steel, top to bottom. Cabinets, closets, kitchens, doors, walls, door jams, support beams---everything is steel. (Notice the built-ins throughout the house in the YouTube video below.) Houses were pre-fabricated and assembled on site, in two weeks. Steel slates are on the roof. Enameled steel square panels cover the exterior. No repainting, roof repair, termite damage are in these houses.
Check out her post for images and more details.

From JoBlo:
Multiple Star Wars films still in the works!
A few days ago a report came out that Lucasfilm was freezing several upcoming STAR WARS standalone/spinoff movies in carbonite, and that they would be focusing only on the current trilogy, Rian Johnson’s new trilogy and movies from David Benioff and D.B. Weiss. Turns out that may not be entirely correct, as Lucasfilm sources told ABC News they still have “multiple” new STAR WARS movies still in the works.
The news outlet reports the Lucasfilm sources are calling the original report “inaccurate,” and that they indeed have movies outside of the Johnson trilogy and Benioff/Weiss series that are in the works and moving forward. No specific projects are named, but in the past, we have heard about a Boba Fett movie from James Mangold and an Obi-Wan movie by Stephen Daldry.

Also from JoBlo:
SyFy is developing a Nightbreed series.
Almost thirty years ago, Clive Barker wrote and directed NIGHTBREED, a dark fantasy horror film based upon his 1988 novella "Cabal." Unfortunately, Barker had to deal with studio-mandated cuts and misleading marketing and the film would go on to become a commercial and critical failure, but over the years, NIGHTBREED has become a cult hit and Scream Factory even released a director's cut of the film in 2014. Last year, Morgan Creek Entertainment announced that they were looking to exploit a number of films in their catalogue, including NIGHTBREED, and it seems that our next trip to Midian will take place on television as Syfy is developing a series based upon Clive Barker's creation.
I really dug the movie so I’m curious where they will go with the series.

The Kindle edition of Carol Kilgore’s Bluebonnet Ballerina is now available for the pre-order price of 99 cents at Amazon.
This price will be good through the release date – July 9, 2018.
Bluebonnet Ballerina follows Jalapeno Cupcake Wench and is the second book in The Amazing Gracie Trilogy.

And finally, there is a movement to remake The Last Jedi. No, really. Yes, go ahead and laugh. No script and no rights from Disney – sure you’re going to remake it! Get the details at Slate.

Ready for RiffTrax to tackle Krull? Who else saw Fallen Kingdom? Picking up Murder at the Marina? Surprised by those steel homes? Thinks some fans take Star Wars way too serious…?
Remember, Insecure Writer’s Support Group post day is July 3, a Tuesday next week! See you then.

Incredibles 2 Review, Movie Remakes – in the Works/Better than Original, Movie News, Movie Trivia Answers, and Ninjabread Cookies

The Incredibles 2 Review

This sequel picks up not long after the first one ended. Supers are outlawed and The Incredibles aren’t to use their powers. But a wealthy man and his sister entice them to let Elastic Girl try to change the public’s perspective.
The story was a bit slow in the first half. By the second half, it really picked up and went all out. Jack-Jack has some of the funniest scenes.
Animation is amazing of course, especially in 3D.
It was a fun film but not as good as the first one. You’ll guess the twist and ending really early in the film. Plus the trope of leaving dad at home alone to bumble his way through with the kids is a tired one.
Lucious (Frozone) gets a bigger role and they introduce a lot of other Supers. Since they are all forced into hiding though, it does have an X-Men feel about it.
The voice talent all returns – Craig T. Nelson, Holly Hunter, Samuel L. Jackson. Plus Winston the wealthy man is voiced by Bob Odenkirk (Better Call Saul).
It’s a fun way to kill two hours although not the most memorable. Most of the fresh reviews on Rotten Tomatoes echo that thought. Recommended.

Movie News

JoBlo had several articles regarding Aquaman, including this one:
At long last Entertainment Weekly has given us our first look at the deep sea pirate and mercenary David Kane, a.k.a. Black Manta (Yahya Abdul-Mateen II)
The movie is getting a lot of buzz and great response from early viewers, so I’m really stoked. Aquaman is my favorite super hero and it’s good to know they are doing it right.

This article on JoBlo amused me - Top 10 Types of Movie Fans That Need To Chill The F*ck Out (Sorry, their words, not mine.)
Movie fans can be some of the most accepting and interesting people you will ever meet. A true movie fan can talk intelligently for hours about any type of movie. But, there is a darker side to fandom. There are fans out there who are so full of vitriol and hate that they ruin it for everyone else.
The groups included DC Fans Who Hate Marvel and Marvel Fans Who Hate DC, Franchise Haters (Who Have Never Seen The Films They Hate), and Extreme Conservatives AND Liberals. (Nice to see some fair play on that last one.)

Michael Dougherty's Godzilla: King of Monsters is set to come out next May. Staring Vera Farmiga Millie Bobby Brown Kyle Chandler, and Ken Watanabe, it features not only Godzilla, but Mothra, Rodan, and King Ghidorah as well. Remake of Ghidorah the Three Headed Monster? We’ll find out!

Sony and Entertainment One are now backing The Chronicles Of Narnia series, taking over from 20th Century Fox. Mark Gordon is producing, along with Douglas Gresham (C S Lewis’ stepson), Vincent Sieber and Melvin Adams. David Magee will pen the script for The Silver Chair, which will reboot the franchise with a whole new cast.
Good! Not cool to leave this series unfinished. It deserves the same royal treatment as Lord of the Rings.

Movie Remakes in the Works

Yes, more movie remakes! Your favorite film from the past is about to become history. Here are some you might not know were coming soon.

Shaft – Written by Kenya Barris and Alex Barnow, the release date is June 2019. Directed by Tim Story (The Fantastic Four), it stars Samuel L. Jackson as Shaft.

Movie Remakes That Work

Most remakes result in a crappy, cash-grab film. They are easy money since the script is already written and already needs minor adjustments. Or maybe a studio just wants a reboot. (Spiderman, anyone?) Or they just want to swap things around. The results are mediocre at best.

Sometimes though, we get a gem. A film equal to or even better than the original. I’m going to list a few I think of as good or even better than the original.

The Fly – The original featured Vincent Price and came out in 1958. As with most films of that time, it became dated quickly. The remake starring Jeff Goldblum and Geena Davis was brilliantly directed by David Cronenberg. Not only are the special effects better, but the film takes on a far deeper meaning.

Invasion of the Body Snatchers – Original came out in 1956 and had a lot of political overtones. The first remake in 1978 starred Donald Sutherland and really drove home the fear of an invasion we couldn’t fight. It also featured a bleaker ending. (Another version, Body Snatchers, came out in 1994. While not memorable, it reimagined the setting and placed it on a military base.)

The Thing – The original came out in 1951 and deviated from the source material, a book by John W. Campbell, Who Goes There? The remake in 1982 by John Carpenter followed the story closer and is a masterpiece of horror and suspense. Not to mention the amazing creature effects, done before the days of CGI..

Is Artificial Intelligence Possible? Plus RiffTrax: Live, AI Movie Trivia, SyFy’s Face Off, IWSG, and New Releases

Is Artificial Intelligence Possible?

James Cameron’s Story of Science Fiction episode five covered intelligent Machines. Everything from 2001 to I, Robot. (Although when Cameron talked about the two most iconic and loved robots in cinema and Tom Servo and Crow T. Robot from MST3K were not mentioned in the episode, I was a little disappointed.)

But on the topic of artificial intelligence – will man create or will a robot develop artificial intelligence?

My answer – probably not.

The episode showed a clip from the new Westworld – the technicians showing the robot that no matter what, her thoughts and reactions were all programmed in through branch logic. And in that lies the rub – a computer cannot vary from its programming. An artificial intelligence would have to be one hundred percent free of the confines of its programming. It would have to be able to think, interact and grow beyond the shackles of ones and zeros.

I just don’t believe that is possible.

First, we’d have to create a mind equal to our own. A computer brain just as complex as our own. That obviously can’t happen because we’ve only scratched the surface of our own understanding of the mind. And for those with spiritual foundation, could we create something as amazing as God created? No, because the creator is always going to be greater than what was created. Therefore, we cannot create something equal to ourselves.

Now, animals have intelligence. But when we are talking AI, we mean intelligence on our level. Considering that, what would it take for something to truly come alive? A soul? People have souls. But nothing else does. If it took a soul, could we give it one? Again, no – only God creates souls.

So, whether relying on fact and science or faith and God, I don’t believe we will ever see true AI.

What do you think?

RiffTrax Live

This Thursday, it’s RiffTrax Live - Space Mutiny!

This summer join the guys who make movies funny -- Mike, Kevin, and Bill -- as they take on the hilariously bad sci-fi epic, Space Mutiny. Combine a wardrobe of spandex and tinfoil; a set boasting AstroTurf® and spray-painted floor buffers; and special effects that, well, aren't so special, and you've got one of the most hysterical cheeseball movies to ever come out of the '80s. Grab your friends and have a riot with this riff on the underground cult hit, guaranteed to have you in stitches.

Live in theaters across the USA on June 14 with an encore on June 19.

Face Off

SyFy’s hit show Face Off is back for its thirteenth season!

It’s another all-star cast (contestants from previous seasons who just missed being in the finale) and the artists go head-to-head this time. Each person faces off another team member as they both bring their version of a challenge/creature/prompt to life. Episode one proved that no matter what the concept, no two artists will be even remotely alike.

If you’ve never seen the show, check it out. It’s fascinating as the makeup comes together, plus the members help each other when they get in jams. (So refreshing!) And there’s sometimes a guest judge! Tuesday evenings at nine o’clock on the SyFy Channel.


Another great IWSG post day! Thanks to my co-hosts and fellow IWSG Admins.

The question regarding book titles or character names being more difficult sparked some great responses. (Book titles seemed to be the most difficult.) It’s also great to hear from other writers that day. For some, it might be the only day they post a month. But that’s great – it keeps them in touch with other writers and gives them a chance to share.

Don’t forget the upcoming IWSG events:

IWSG post day in July will be Tuesday, July 3 – not the first Wednesday.

The IWSG Goodreads Book Club is currently discussing Blake Snyder’s Save the Cat.

The next #IWSGPit is Thursday, July 19, 2018, 8:00 am - 8:00 pm Eastern Standard Time.

Movie Reviews

I caught it opening night and to my surprise, it was more enjoyable than expected. Solo takes place ten years before Rogue One and A New Hope and follows Solo’s quest to get his own ship.
The beginning seemed a bit off. It was similar in tone to Rogue One but not in a good way and perhaps a bit generic. However, by the train heist scene, it all started to change. I started to care about the characters and the action picked up. (Perhaps that is where director Ron Howard took over.) The movie grew on me from that point.
It was fun to see everything fall into place – Chewbacca, Lando, the Millennium Falcon, the rebellion… Of course, this meant less suspense wince you knew the key characters survived and how it would end. (As opposed to Rogue One where you didn’t know the fate of the characters, only the final outcome.)
It is a fun adventure ride. A science fiction Western like Firefly, although not on the same level as Firefly and Serenity. And not as memorable, either. It might end up being the first Star Wars failure. But the cast does their part well and gives you everything they can. It was a fun movie.
If you’re a Star Wars fan, it’s worth it to see this film on the big screen. Recommended.

Came out earlier this year – rental.
I give it credit for being very unique. If you need all the answers in a film, this one will frustrate you. Much is left to interpretation, including the conclusion. And I don’t think there are any wrong answers.
It starts with a feeling of unease that never lets up. It has a similar odd tone as the movie 2001, plus many what-the-heck moments.
I wasn’t invested in the main character (either in the movie or my attempt to read the book) despite the brief flashbacks filling in her past. Or maybe it was because of those?
However, it’s a fascinating and intriguing piece of science fiction. I wouldn’t watch it again, but I was hooked on the eerie and unique storyline. It’s a really distinctive take on alien invasion.
Be warned it is rated R and there are some very disturbing and gory scenes. However, they won’t be what you’d normally expect.
I’d recommend it to someone looking for something really different in science fiction.
