In a not too distant future one man and two robots are trapped in a satellite and forced by evil scientists to watch the worst movies ever made.
Being Danish I was not introduced to the MST3K shows before 2006 when my friend Jeppe told me about them. Now our goal is to watch them all together - and after that probably watch them again. The concept of one man and two robots making hilarious comments on horrific movies is absolutely amazing.
So far "The Magic Voyage of Sinbad" is the most uneven experience we've had. I think the problem is that the movie isn't horrible enough in the beginning. Despites the bad acting it could have been the beginning of an OK adventure movie.
But the ending - Oh my God! The highlight has to be the carrier pigeon that lands on Sinbads shoulder - totally ignoring the fact that Sinbad is standing on the bottom of the sea.
And when King Neptune decides to chase Sindbad in a shrimp-drawn carriage we hit the so far highest laughing rate of our MST3K journey.
So be sure to watch all of this episode. It will pay off!
