Oh, that's private? What is this stuff you're pulling on me? You're just like those guys, those white collar guys down there at Cherry Point. Everything is hush hush! Operation Sand Dust - hush hush! Everybody connected with it - hush hush! Everybody except me because I know something they didn't know I knew.

Laserblast was edited down for its appearance on Mystery Science Theater 3000 in 1996. Among the scenes cut was a sequence where party guests are questioned at the police station about Chuck's car exploding, more conversations between Billy and Cathy, and more footage of Billy in alien monster mode destroying downtown - along with the sheriffs car being flipped.

As I saw that, I was stunned. Leonard Maltin rates movies on a scale of one to four. I'll give it 2 1/2 stars out of ten, maybe. The plot is stupid and full of holes. Aliens fight on earth for some reason and kill this guy with green skin, who drops his laser gun. A loser that everyone picks on (for good reason) finds this gun and starts blasting everyone and everything that did him wrong. Especially hilarious are when he blows up a pinball machine (did it take his quarter?) and when he blows up a billboard that says simply "Star Wars" (Huh?). It's every bit as bad as it sounds. Roddy McDowell actually appeared in this movie - he must have been hurting bad for a movie role. Just remember, according to Leonard Maltin, this is better than "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom" (which only got two stars). Worth watching once on its own for camp, but recommended especially for MST3K. The episode doesn't run on TV anymore and can't be found on Rhino, though, so it's tough to find. Pretty bad. This movie marked the point I stopped trusting Leonard Maltin altogether.
