The first movie I watched of 2012 was a classic Mystery Science Theater 3000 episode where Joel and robot crew watch Gamera. As a kid I loved Gamera but I think all kids like giant things crushing smaller things. Plus he could fly!
As a movie, Gamera is terrible, but when MST3K watches a bad movie it’s almost always a good time. For the uninitiated, the point of MST3K is watching bad movies while the cast cracks wise throughout. The entire package was quite enjoyable. If you’re a fan of MST3K it’s a gem and if you ARE new, it is the perfect place to start.
Available on Netflix Instant Watch (among many other great MST3K episodes).
I give it 3 flying giant turtles out of 5.
