No getting around it: this movie sucked.
Nathaniel Jones
It was still very funny to have them making fun of it.

Because MST3k is sort of a show within a show within a movie, I think you need to look at the individual parts in order to rate the episode.

The movie: Poor Billy. Neglected by his mom - harassed by the local deep South Cops (even though he lives in CA) - forced to drive a 70's van that doesn't even have cool air brushed paintings - hated by all - picked on by all (even that guy who played the nerd in every late 70's movies). But Billy will get his revenge with his.... Laserblast!!! Basically this movie is a story of a picked on kid who finds a weapon and then blows stuff up. And that is just about as deep as this movie gets. The only really great part is the stop motion turtle-like aliens that have been sent to retrieve the laserblast gun; they are actually rather cute and I did like their weird language. But the rest of the movie is not very good. OK, maybe it is one of the better MST3k reviewed movies - but only a person with no knowledge of movies would ever compare this stinker to a movie like "Amadeus".

The Host Segments: All of them are funny. By this point, Mike and the bots were free to do want they want during the skits (compared to referencing parts from the film) and they clearly have fun mocking other science fiction staples. MST3k fans will want to watch all of the segments as this is the last episode for a beloved character.

Riffs: There are a lot of riffs and almost all of them are very hilarious. At one point not only was there non-stop riffing but Mike and the bots were cracking each other up with their lines.

Overall: This was the last episode of MST3k on Comedy Central. The staff knew there was a chance that this could be their last outing and it is clear that the writers were bringing their "A" game. One of the better MST3k episodes for general viewers and required watching for MST3k fans.

Bow your heads, people -- "Laserblast" is the very strange end of an era in MST3K era, shifting from one deranged villain to another.

But even as their lives change forever, the Satellite of Love dudes must watch a devastatingly bad movie that somehow got two-and-a-half stars from Leonard Maltin, and even inexplicably got a cameo from Roddy friggin' McDowall. And in the meantime, they are confronted by disasters from classic science fiction!

Crow, Mike and Tom are horrified when Dr. F suddenly disconnects the umbilicus from the Satellite, meaning that they are adrift in space without air or supplies. Turns out Dr. F has lost his funding and is now moving in with his mother Pearl. But there's a not-so-bright-side: he's giving the guys a film to watch!

That film is "Laserblast," in which stop-motion turtle aliens lose an arm cannon in the desert. It's found by a sullen slacker that everybody picks on, and who has a terrifying-looking mom who is apparently a prostitute. But as the slacker takes revenge against everybody who has ever made his life miserable, the weapon starts turning him into a crazy green mutant.

MST3K's snark of "Laserblast" is really a turning point for the series -- it starts the transition from Dr. Forrester to his mom Pearl, and leads to the Satellite being set adrift IN SPAAAAAAACE. Granted, Mike and the bots don't seem hugely worried, since they not-so-happily trot off to watch the movie and make fun of the fact that Leonard Maltin gave it two and a half stars.

Probably one of the funniest MST3K Shows.!!! Right up there with Invasion of the Mole People. Plus a side story on the SOL being flung into deep space.

One my all time favorite movies. Maybe not worth 2-1/2 stars, as Leonard Maltin suggests. But Mike and the Bots push it into criterion collection territory.

Mystery Science Theater 3000 is always great for a laugh, but in this case the underlying film "Laserblast" is neither good, nor "so bad it's worth a watch."

Having watched most of the MST episodes available on Amazon Prime, and finding only a few real gems among the mostly unfunny flicks, this one is arguably, the funniest. Wonderfully roasted
by the crew who don't miss a beat or a moment to rip, roar, and shred in laughable pieces the awful dialog, the terrible script, the unbelievably comic moments which are usually when the movie is actually trying to be "scary" or "touching," this is one MST that will NOT disappoint. This is a pitiful spoof, for sure, -and isn't that the perfect landscape for the MST team to bulldoze cinematic stupidity and build a ton of chuckles!? The three of us who watched this laughed till it hurt, and yes, that's a rarity with most of the MST episodes. Warning: don't get up to use the bathroom during any of the 'romance' scenes, they are so incredibly awful they became perfect material for side-splitting funny! Don't miss this one!

The MOVIE is slightly dialogue challenged. Some parts are dialogue-free.
BUT more time to make cracks !
Watch this with a cold beverage or ??? and YOU will join in.

FUN !
