House of the Dragon
1x02 The Rogue Prince

Mystery Science Theater 3000
13x07 Gamera vs Jiger
They’ve mentioned repeatedly on the post-episode-premiere Q&As how hard the writers found this one, due to having to riff an entire movie with no leeway to cut for time or repetition (which they do on all the other films they cover), and I feel like that comes across in the final episode. There are some great riffs (the songs; the running gag about the little girl’s bloodthirstiness), but also longer-than-usual periods of silence and some stuff that was a bit too esoteric. By no means a disaster, but not among the best the season has had to offer.


He Walked by Night (1948)
[#57 in The All-New 100 Films in a Year Challenge 2022]

this week on

You may have noticed that a new month began halfway through this week, and so there was the usual pair of lookbacks on

First, at the month as a whole...

Then, at all the films I didn't watch...

No new reviews, though. Hopefully there'll be some more of those next Sunday.
