MST3k The Movie & Godzilla - Yes The Matthew Broderick One!

  • May 17, 2014 · 1:00 PM
  • Mary & Matt's apartment

It's May and the summer movie season is fast upon us with the major Hollywood blockbusters inundating every screen at your local multiplex - so why not honor one of the best and one of the worst movies ever to grace the big screen?

First up and frequent request - we will be showing off the infamous MST3k The Movie, where Mike and the bots take on This Island Earth! Matt got to see this one in the theaters during its original release - he and a friend were probably all that saw it on the big screen in the entire state of Michigan... sadly that's not a joke. It's great, it's fun, and if you haven't seen it, we think you'll love it!

Next up - the 1999 failed giant lizard reboot Godzilla! Yes it has Matthew Broderick - and after the critics were done savaging this film, I bet he wished he'd taken a day off - see what I did there? ehhhh... yeah bad joke. ANYhoo this is a great bad movie and since the new(and hopefully better) movie opens the day before, we thought it was a good idea to watch this one and be thankful it didn't manage to spawn a series of sequels.

PIZZA! We will be making a run to Little Caesars for a couple of hot and ready pizzas, we'll get a mix of cheese and pepperoni to suit everyone's taste - participation is only $1! Just let us know in the comments if you want pizza to help us plan ahead. 

Other refreshments: we'll also have chips, salsa, and soda on deck - however, we got a lot of questions about what people should bring, and the simple answer to that is - whatever you want! Cookies, candy, more chips, more soda, it's all good and the more the merrier! Also if you bring something and there are leftovers - by all means take the remainder back with you or load up on some of everything before you leave! Please! We can't eat it all no matter how much we want to or try. 

Also - in case you didn't get the email blast we sent out after the survey results - we want everyone to have a good time, but that also includes keeping the random comments to a minimum, respectful & also the volume low so people can hear the movies, especially in this case since we're watching one movie that isn't riffed. 

We can't wait to see everyone again and hope everyone is having a great day. Be good until the 17th!
