This movie was a hoot. The guys are right on track with the riffs. I got a good laugh when Mary Jo blows her line and Josh comments "Well they can't all be sentences." Kinda funny how they portrayed American soilders in this movie. I was waiting for a riff about why the general would be wearing normal shoes with "high water" pants instead of boots, but oh well. lol
A couple of interesting (at least to me) facts about this movie. It was dubbed by many of the same actors from the early Gamera movies. It was also released by Shochiku, a small studio in Japan that released the Monster X (Guilala) movies. Finally if the music sounds awfully like the score from Gamera vs. Guiron then it should because Shunsuke Kikutchi provides the musical score for this film as well.

War of the Insects Brilliant, laugh my butt off from start to finish. The guy who was scared of bugs was a larf, plus there's Japanese Hitler! Lots of racial jokes (I wonder if they will offend anyone?) I had a good time, gotta watch it again soon.
Just finished watching "War Of The Insects". Had me laughing throughout. I really loved the "Tom Servo" joke, and Mary Jo's "Oh, genocide was his sled" had me falling out of my chair.

War if the insects is quite classy Indeed. and CT makes it even better. I was suprised that there were no riffs about the Office-- as one of the pilots is a dead ringer for Stanley. I am just happy for new CT!

Rattlers- Much like Indiana Jones, I hate snakes so I was a little leery about seeing this one. My God though, it is awesome, I loved the riffing on the herpetologist and the drunken army doctor The pointless side trip to Las Vegas was hilariously riffed as well.
The Alien Factor- Wow, what a horrendous film. The Titans riff it beautifully, though, hammering away at the lame acting, the miniscule budget, and stupid plot.

blood of the vampires
included it in my halloween mst3k lineup. this one is never my first choice, though the riffing is good. it's just the movie itself - it puts me to sleep every time. or maybe it's some kind of defense mechanism that kicks in every time i see those servants in black face.

legacy of blood
it was in my halloween stash of ct's, rt's and mst's. it's been a while since i've watched it and man, i forgot how awful and cringe-worthy that movie was. very good riffing in it, it had to be a piece of cake for them, though i imagine having to watch the movie over and over was a drag. it's great if you enjoy vague incesty overtones and mumbly lines with terrible acting.

Watched "Rattlers" yesterday; "War of the Insects" today. First time for each. Both great! Plenty of laughs. "Rattlers" is absolutely perfect for riffing. Gad, but 70's horror is a deep well of riffing fodder! Wish they could've tackled "God Monster of Indian Flats." That killer-mutant sheep movie's just begging to be riffed. "War of the Insects" really made me nostalgic for Sandy Frank.
Does anyone know what is "altered" by CT on the Wasp Woman DVD?
Just that it was riffed on. Corman raised a stink about them doing it. I think it was just a disclaimer to indicate that this wasn't the movie in it's purest form.
A few times they've had to change titles, kind of for the same reasons. To differentiate the two.
I've been watching these again the past few weeks. I purchased another copy of Doomsday Machine because mine was freezing up at one point. This new copy played perfectly and I got a lot of laughs out of it.
Also watched Rattlers, Legacy of Blood and the hysterical War of the Insects. Rattlers was the weakest of the bunch, started off hot, then hit some lulls.
It's interesting to go back and forth between live and studio releases. I definitely prefer the live. There's just an extra energy there, like the riffers are feeding off the audiences laughter.
