0619: Red Zone Cuba

MST3k, Experiment #0619

SHORT:
Speech: Platform Posture and Appearance. Through liberal use of the knee test, looking good and standing tall, the secrets of public speaking are revealed.

Make the Mistake! Red Zone Cuba.

A trio of convicts joins up for an assault on a Cuban stronghold. After they are captured, they plan to escape before they face the firing squad. They eventually make it back to the American Southwest, where they go from town to town, robbing and killing.

Oh boy, Coleman Francis... Enough said.

This is a favourite of mine. The first one I owned an official copy of on DVD... The movie is horrid. The host segments are alright. The short is fantastic. The riffing is fabulous! If you haven't seen it, watch it. If you don't have it, buy it steal it whatever, and then watch it.

I don't have much time to write this, and my internet has been out randomly for the past few days, so this will be very short. Which is alright, because there's not much to say except that this is an incrdible episode and one that I have seen FAR too many times to count.

The short is a classic, and is another public speaking short... It's possibly the only true public speaking short, as it puts all others to shame.

The movie is about a few guys who decide to invade Cuba. That's all... just a few guys who try to privately invade Cuba, then get caught. One guy even gets killed a few times...

Oh the song!! I like the "Bouncy Upbeat Song" a lot!! Being an avid Gypsy fan, I of course love her little bit of the song the best... It's just an all-around fun song.

Anyways, I don't care what other people have said, this is far from the worst movie they have ever riffed... It's bad, yes... but not the worst. The episode however is still just fantastic!!


Favourite line: "Do they really have to practice jumping?"
