: Anyway, the Outside Stuff selection
: is..."RT: Gravity" (w/ Bridget
: & Mary Jo)
In this case, the movie is actually good. It has great VFX, some good acting & characterization, and a fair amount of suspense. That doesn't mean it isn't riff fodder, though. Bridget & Mary Jo do a great job, particularly in noting the mounting number of problems astronaut Sandra Bullock runs into. (When she discovers the Russian escape pod has no fuel, they riff that next she'll probably drop her iPhone in the toilet or something.) Plus, there are a couple of callbacks to some TV show they worked on. Great stuff!

As for "Yongary"...
And we're back.
Longtime readers may remember my DBNS review of "Yongary". (I'll see if I can dig it up for re-posting.) My opinions have not changed. It's one lousy movie, with an undistinguished monster, a lackluster plot, and the single worst "monster child" I've ever run across. Even Gamera looks down on this one.
As for the ep, it turned out OK. The riffing was good and well-paced. The host segments were OK, and I particularly liked Jonah & the 'bots feeling outraged over Yongary's fate. As in the original show, there are lines that should not be crossed.
Two good ones this time. What do you think, sirs?
Watch out for snakes.
