The Movie Snob is back.
Rifftrax: Space Mutiny (B+). Ahoy, gentle readers! I have not blogged in a while, owing to various family-related issues that have kept me out of the theaters. But my sister was in town last week, and we managed to hit the multiplex for the latest Rifftrax live show. You can catch a re-broadcast of it this coming Tuesday, June 19, and I give this one a hearty thumbs-up. The opening short was pretty lackluster, something about a boy and his dad visiting a mysterious magic shop that may actually be magical! But the main event is Space Mutiny, a 1988 sci-fi cheesefest that was actually riffed on Mystery Science Theater 3000 back in 1997. The riffers did a fine job, but the movie alone would have provided plenty of laughs. The plot is largely incomprehensible, but it’s something about a mutiny aboard a giant spaceship that happens to look exactly like the 1978-79 era Battlestar Galactica. Don’t miss it!
