There's not much more to add then that.

This is a 1992 episode from the glory days, and the movie, "Hercules Against the Moon Men" has many pertinent quips that can cause unexpected laughter in this most "Deep Hurting" of film experiments.

Joel and the robots almost break down, but they manage to mock their way through to a successful end with no brains exploding on the Satellite of Love.

I can't say exactly why this episode shines, but the jokes fly quickly - so quickly at times that I found myself really hating that I had nobody with me to laugh at the specific bouts of humor.

The oily jokes were easy, the Louise Brooks reference bizarre, and so on. If you enjoy the series in general, I can recommend this most highly. If you've never seen one of the MST3K shows before, this is not a bad place to start. I love it, as seen by my five star review.

This movie sucked so badly, we thought that we were going to die, right along with Joel and the robots. That's what made it so great! Beware of the "Deep Hurting" during the last (SEEMING) hours of the movie.

This is one of those movies that are so stupid they are funny. I rember something about some guy wearing oven mitts during a human sacrifice and the phrase deep hurting is one I still quote to this day.

This is from the swords and sandals period of bad film making. Alan Steele, really, stars as Hercules against a sociopathic queen and creatures from an unknown planet. This film is collaboration between the French and the Italians. Who knew that these two countries could make a film this bad.

As usual the acting, if you can call that acting, is bad. The script is awful and the special effects (miniatures) are low budget even for the time.

The only saving grace of this movie is that they hired some very attractive women to be in the movie.

The quips are as always good. The skits are reasonably funny.

What to watch for:

Bad fight scenes, Hercules is always smiling, bad monster costume, bad stock footage and a dust storm that last for hours.

I would watch it again.

"Hercules Against the Moon Men," is clichéd schlock, the perfect target for the sarcasm of the robots aboard the Satellite of Love. It is amazing that the producers of this series could consistently come up with movies so worthy of their mockery. But they did, for several years.

Mystery Science Theater 3000 is hilarious as they cut up the unexplainable concept shows that were common years ago- If I had to watch these old "stinkers" of movies from the 60's and 70's, I would be making the same remarks these actors did! Very sarcastic humor! These are the comments these old movies deserve!

These guys are great and I love just about everything they have done. This one is especially funny with some real good riffs. If you enjoy Mystery Science theater 3000 in general then you are going to love Hercules Against the Moon Men.
