Kevin Murphy's Title Song Makes It!!

"If you really miss the songs from the MST3K crew, then there's good news!! Kevin Murphy does the title song before the movie and it's Hilarious!! Then there's the movie, a typical outerspace tidbit from the 50's. The silly plot is about two hoods who get rocketed to the moon along with scientists (the lone female on the spaceship wears Pearls and earrings with her outerspace jumpsuit!). They land on a planet with female-only aliens who just happen to be pretty women in skimpy outfits and high heels. The head honcho is called "The Lido," for some unknown reason and her crown looks more like a chandelier on her head. The best actors are the tacky giant puppet spider and rock creatures who move faster than the stupid humans who are trying to escape them. Mike Nelson, Kevin Murphy and Bill Corbett do a reasonably good job. The movie and commentary are tame so it's family-friendly."

"Our family have been big fans of MST3K since we first caught the show on the SciFi Channel in the late 90's. We bought quite a few of the one-movie DVD's and all 14 (so far) of the 4-movie sets. The Brain That Wouldn't Die continues to be a family favorite. We followed the "boys" to the Film Crew and own several of that series, though I have to say that while the off-screen commentaries in the Film Crew series can be as funny as the best of the MST3K shows, the skits between the movie segments generally fall flat. Kevin Murphy and Bill Corbett just aren't as whimsical as humans as they were as robots. Unfortunately, the trio's efforts seem to be devolving in their third outing, The Rifftrax concept. If you haven't tried one, Rifftrax are portable audio commentaries to movies of all kinds (not just typical MST fodder) - that you can purchase with the related movie, as we did with Missile to the Moon, or download from the Rifftrax website and play on your iPod while watching a movie on your computer or TV. Sounds cool. Alas, the commentary on Missile to the Moon lacked the old MST3K snark. Granted the original show's episodes were always a bit hit and miss. In the subsequent 4-movie MST3K DVD sets, generally only one or two (at best) of the movies bear repeated viewings. I guess one can only take the Flaunting-of-Disbelief concept so far..."

"The RiffTrax soundtrack seemed to come across much quieter than the movie's original sound making it difficult to follow what Mike, Kevin and Bill said. I was constantly having to repeat gags for my aunt who just couldn't hear what the Riffers were saying most of the time."
