Below the fold, the transcript from Mock The Movie: Attack From Space. I had to do a bit of post-production work to interleave the two separate logs, as brx0 joined late and had a few real-life interruptions. All in all, I thoroughly enjoyed this one — there’s just something special about early Japanese action films. And by special, I mean especially terrible.
We do these movies about every two weeks, usually on Thursday nights, at 9pm EST. For best effect, start the movie and read the jokes while watching. Sadly, because of the interleaving, following via the GMT timestamps isn’t really possible. Well, it sort of is, if you watch my or Stephanie’s timestamps, assuming 1 AM GMT is the start of the movie.
At the moment, selection of movies is done just about at random, and I’m the only limiting factor, being that in Canada I don’t have access to Hulu so a lot of movies that are otherwise mockworthy aren’t accessible to me. Of course, with some prior warning, I’m sure I could find a way to obtain something particularly stinky, but we’ve been a bit slack in picking movies ahead of time. Next Mock The Movie will fall during my vacation to Minnesota over the American Thanksgiving period, so we’ll have a wider selection. Any recommendations, folks?
@lousycanuck: @MockTM Time to start the movie!
@lousycanuck: @MockTM How did Starman gather that there’s a traitor on Earth from there being a ship in orbit? Why, it’s one of his watch-endowed powers!
@brx0: @MockTM I’m actually looking forward to the point in the distant future where we all switch back to analog gauges for everything.
@lousycanuck: @MockTM Okay, after the first five guys get knocked out with zero effort, they should have changed tactics. Like maybe nuking him.
@brx0: @MockTM Gotta say the movie has unusual notions about how gravity in space works.
@lousycanuck: @MockTM What kind of engineer lets you blow up a space station by mangling its antenna? The kind that goes on to design the Death Star.
@brx0: @MockTM I remain astonished that metallic jumpsuits have never caught on in RL.
@lousycanuck: @MockTM Holy shit. This movie has a Death Star. Holy. Shit.
@brx0: @MockTM Oh crap, a bigger space station. And it’s moving into Orbit EF. Which is near the “death star”, says the boss. Hmm.
