Did You Know?


Dr. Forrester: Anyway, your film today is "Robot Monster". It's a classic film that was nominated for a Golden Turkey award for being one of the "fowlest" films ever! Hehe!
Dr. Lawrence Erhardt: See, to call this film wretched would just be a insult to the word wretched! It stars no-one! Oh, man, you won't believe this!

17 February 2012 | by (District 9) – See all my reviews

I think the segments form Radar Men From The Moon were worse than Robot Monster - I wasn't living in the age of movie serials but one ends with a plane crashing to the ground - then after that you have the same opening credits, the same introduction and then you see that hey look everything's okay - this cliffhanger ending in this is WAY too overused.

Robot Monster was an awful movie to sit through though (I think Santa Claus Conquers The Martians is the worst "worst movie ever made vote" and yes I have seen Manos) the riffing was pretty good - not as good as previous episodes though.

Overall: decent TV Episode - Definitely made both movies watchable (with Radar Men From The Moon that is an achievement) definitely not the best episode though - I felt as though they could have done something more with it though.
