This isn't MST 3K
5 March 2009 | by (in front of my puter) – See all my reviews

Cinema Insomnia has nothing to do with MST 3K. If it's low-rent, that is part of its charm.

Mr Lobo is one of the funniest and sweetest horror hosts there ever was. He is a thoughtful and kind interviewer, he is tireless in his dedication to bringing some actually quite hilarious movies back, and he is a generous man to his many fans.

I love MST 3K, and I also love CI. Most amerikan TV is garbage, but not Cinema Insomnia. The movies are so misunderstood, but there are great old-time commercials and theatre intermission stuff that brings back some really fond memories for me, and the old Scopitone videos are great, especially "Trapped in a Web of Love".

Don't compare it to MST 3K. It's like comparing Star Trek and Star Wars.
