Storyline

American spies discover the Chinese have built a weapon capable of destroying planet Earth, a "doomsday machine" if you will, and that they plan to use it within a matter of days. Will the human race survive? Will you wish it didn't once you've seen this movie? Not when you watch with Cinematic Titanic! The riff light is on as they go head-to-head with this 1972 non-classic.

Movie Riffing 2.0
8 January 2009 | by (Reading, PA) – See all my reviews

As a big time fan of the original MST3K I was stoked when I heard that Joel and company were going back to doing what made them famous to begin with. Rifftrax, Mike Nelson's own riffing endeavor, are okay, but I found myself missing Trace and Frank. Cinematic Titanic is a new "show" from the original MST3K cast and Doomsday Machine is the first installment I sat down to watch.

Watching Cinematic Titanic is like being reunited with old friends, voices of hilarity that have kept you laughing for years. All of the cast, even J. Elvis and Mary Jo are in top-notch riffing form and very few of the jokes fall flat. I found myself cracking up throughout...

The only issue with the film is that towards the end the actual movie (not the riffing) BECOMES UNBEARABLE, almost as unwatchable as Manos (which holds a special place in the hearts of all Msties)

Bottom line- if you're a fan of MST3K or Rifftrax than I highly recommend it. If this were an MST3K episode it'd likely be in my Top 20...
