PLEASE NOTE: THIS THREAD IS -NOT- TO BE CONFUSED WITH THE OPEN THREAD FOR TONIGHT’S LIVESTREAM PREMIERE OF THIS EPISODE.
THIS SPOILER DISCUSSION THREAD IS INTENDED FOR PEOPLE WHO HAVE ALREADY SEEN THIS EPISODE -BEFORE- TONIGHT’S LIVESTREAM PREMIERE AND WISH TO DISCUSS WHAT THEY’VE SEEN RIGHT THIS VERY MINUTE.
Here is your discussion thread for spoiler-filled thoughts, discussions, and observations on The Mask 3D!
This is your destination for discussing anything and everything about MST3K episode 1311: the host segments, the theater segments, the memorable quotes, the hilarious riffs, the feature presentation, all of it!
Remember: this is a spoiler discussion thread, so all points of discussion will not be spoiler-blurred. If you haven’t seen the episode, you’ll want to turn back now!
Even though we don’t have Jim Carrey yelling "SSSSSSSSSSSSMOKIN’ " in this movie, let’s go!
This was an odd one, I’ll have to come back to it for the livestream and see if my reactions to the riffing changes - so I won’t commit to an opinion on that aspect just yet. But I will say that it’s a good-time episode, it has a good energy to it. The holiday spirit was strong, I enjoyed the way they decorated the SOL, and dressed up in costumes. And the novelty of the 3D added to that spirit of fun.
Patton and Rebecca got probably the biggest laugh out of me with that bit with the landlady (doodad, lmao)
And the final sketch was a kick if only in seeing Jonah and the Bots in 3D.
EDIT - this was ported over from another thread (not by me), so that’s why it reads awkwardly, or that I’m repeating myself and adding spoilers to a spoiler free thread - sigh- I hate being made to look stupid.
Watching it now, and I’m thinking they should have titled the movie The Doodads
BTW - it’s another episode with quiet movie/loud riffs… if others are hearing the same we’ll have to bring it up to the powers that be.
Yeah I’ve only watched the first half but definitely feels like the movie audio is much lower than the riffs using the app on iPad with the built in speakers. It’s a bit better when using headphones but still seems like it’s not right
I had to watch it early for baseball reasons. Pretty good riffing! The first 3D section is about 30 minutes in and that’s probably the best one (eyes! fire!) and then there are two more a few minutes long in the actual movie. The final host segment has 3D door exit and sketch.
Best thing about the movie: the car Dr. Barnes drives
Absolutely no motivation for strangling women from the 3D mask fever dreams, so not sure what they were going for there.
Best host segment thing: the cameo from Mrs. Kelly was awesome
I had the same issue on both an iPad and a desktop with good speakers. I always watch the movies the first time on my iPad and I’ve never run into an audio level issue quite like this yet. This is the 2d version. Haven’t checked if the 3d version has the same problem, but it’s basically un…listenable(?) for me. In order to hear the movie audio I have to turn it up so loud Jonah and the bots are quite painfully loud.
