MST3K at it's finest... except wider!
18 April 2017 | by khunkrumarkSee all my reviews

We're back on track! Avalanche is a disaster movie in possible every way! It's brought down even further by a simply terrible performance by Rock Hudson. He played himself in McMillan & Wife and when that show ended its run he tried acting. That was a mistake! Steve Franken shows up again. (He was the awful Danny in The Time Travelers.) Robert Forster's Nick Thorne is about the only character that the audience can take seriously.

This is a TV caliber movie with well-known faces filling the roles and it is a good vehicle for the friendly folk at the Satellite Of Love. The movie is awful of course, but there's loads of action between the speaking for some great riffs.

Of the four episodes of the reboot of MST3K that I have seen, this may be the best for gags and references. (I'm watching the new series in sequence.) There is, however, a long musical number in the middle which seems to have been added to make up the 90-minute running time. If you're watching on Netflix, now's a good time to make a sandwich. If you're watching this on commercial TV, this melodic filler may be frustrating to sit through.

I'm still not sold on the 'Gypsy' and Kinga Forrester characters. I'll probably skip through these bits when I watch it again in the future. Gypsy has lost her naive, simple-minded charm and the money-mad Kinga character comes across as a bit forced. But because the actual riffing of the movie in this outing is top notch I'll let it slide. (See what I did there? Slide?)

Best gag: "Hey, that's a handicapped spot!" or "She died as she lived - completely lit up!"

A return to genius - top marks for this one despite the musical interlude.
