As MST3k is sort of a show within a show within a movie format, I like to review the sections of each episode in order to give it a final rating.

The movie: If you are wondering why you never heard of this movie even though it was released in the late 90's, don't. There are films from the 50's that have better special effects (and acting, and directing, etc.) With this movie you get dinosaurs that are 20 feet tall in one scene then 5 feet tall in the next; the nicest smoking, swearing nun that used to be a drug running prostitute; and several fights in a factory that apparently ships air in their boxes. Need more proof that this is a great bad movie: per Wikipedia, the movie crew predicted that this film would be shown on MST3k - while they were still shooting.

Host Segments: The first few are not that great. But Pearl and Crow save the show with some really funny skits at the end.

Riffs: Constant and steady wins the race so kudos to Mike and the bots. There were several good riffs and I loved Mike's presentation during the ending credits of the movie.

Overall: Bad movie, funny segments, and funny riffing. Not a top 10 classic but one of the better episodes.

The Satellite of Love experiment of the Week is a real Cute-a-saurus that will have you card-board... But in a good way... The Boy's screen a Film about a Kickboxer from the future (more like Jean Claude Gosh Darn) who teams up with a nun and an assortment biggest loser dropouts to fight stacks of Cardboard boxes and Dinosaur puppets while the Bots are forced to watch. Crow tries to calculate how many times a lady Gypsy is. (Spoiler: Gypsy is disappointed that she is only 2.7 times a lady; turns out Mike is eight times a lady). Also Mike, gives a lesson in forced perspective and he, Crow and Servo realize they've never really thanked Pearl for not killing them. They take a moment to thank Pearl, interrupting her attempt to kill them... "HEY!"

FUTURE WARS is another reprehensible "film" atrocity that's seemingly custom-made for Mike and his bot friends to lampoon mercilessly. The unintelligible plot has something to do w/ wobbly, rubber dinosaurs, silly cyborgs, and a guy who runs around fighting them w/ karate. Robert Z'Dar (MANIAC COP 1-3) makes a painfully humiliating appearance as a bloated, lumbering cyborg! His scenes are almost too much to bear! The rest of this abysmal elephant turd is only watchable through MST3K-vision. Any attempts to view it otherwise could result in a slow, agonizing death...

The MST3000 crew turns sci-fi lead to comedy gold. Or gold plated lead anyway.

Like all the MST3000 treatments, it starts with a terrible film. In this case, its a science fiction film featuring killer robots and their trained attack dinosaurs that are used to hunt down the last humans. The MST3000 robots "screen" the film for us and add their own quirky commentary over the top of the dialog. The end result is considerably funnier than most modern films that start out as comedies.

Two points re:this episode

1. The "star" of this flick is, what I would call, "the poor man's Jean Claude Van Damme". Looks like him, more or less.

2. The funniest riff comes early in the show when the Jean Claude lookalike guy is fighting with an out of shape, pudgy android. They mostly throw empty cardboard boxes at each other. Mike riffs, "Battle of the guys who peaked in high school".

Overall, a pretty decent episode.

MST3K and it's successor Rifftrax are all absolutely hilarious. This MST3K episode along about half a dozen others are the epitome of taking down cheap cinema and b-movies.
I also recommend the following MST3K episodes:
Space Mutiny
Manos: The Hands of Fate
Overdrawn at the Memory Bank
Boggy Creek II: and the Legend Continues
The Final Sacrifice
Horror at Party Beach

Some movies are so bad that even Mike and the Bots have a tough time making them entertaining. This is of "those" movies. The crew of the S.O.L. make a valiant effort, but this one is just too much of a stinker for them to overcome. I love all things MST3K though, so I can't fault them for this train wreck of a film. They do manage to get a few solid laughs out of the premise of Future War, which is a monstrous mish-mash of poor man's Jean Claude Van Damme action stars, cyborgs, box kicking, dinosaur cyborgs, prostitutes turned nuns, and fat guys with guns. Honestly, that premise should be AMAZING , but sadly it is not. Watch this one while heavily intoxicated or after a recent head trauma and you might just enjoy it. Otherwise...see it at your own risk.

Even with the gang making fun of this movie the whole time, it is still so lousy I couldn't stand to watch the whole thing. How did this movie ever get made? What's with all the boxes? Why do the T-Rex's keep changing size drastically? How many times can credits interrupt the start of a movie?
