Review- MST3K: The Incredible Melting Man June 15, 2007

“Steve had crackers”- Servo as Ted

Some astronauts in space are going on and on about Saturn’s rings when their Apollo capsule mixes with Solar flares.  The astronauts scream and, apparently, their capsule crash lands back on Earth. All were killed except for one and he has a bad case of the drips.  This last astronaut is now a Goo Man and so he breaks out of the hospital he’s in and wanders around, killing people.  On the case is Dr. Ted Nelson and he plans on capturing the Goo Man by reasoning with him. There’s also a pointless scene with a horny, lemon-stealing elderly couple.


Opening: The crew play a little hardball.
Intro: Crow’s “Earth vs. Soup” screenplay is being made into a movie, with Dr. F. and Pearl in charge
Host segment 1: A script conference goes nowhere
Host segment 2: Crow shoots his movie
Host segment 3: Dr. F. leads a focus group
End: Crow learns the fate of his movie
Stinger: “Let’s get the hell out of here!”

Man this is some bad film. More bad/bad film than bad/chessey film. But still Mike and the bots do aokay job at riffing it. The host sements are great as they deal with Hollywood producers making Crow’s script “Earth vs. Soup” into a movie.  The knowing jokes in these segments are very apparently making fun of the ridiculous stuff BBI had to deal with when they made MST3K: the Movie.

So, although the movie and riffing is enjoyable, this episode is worth seeing even if only for the host segments.

Movie: C
Host Segment: B
Overall: C
