Bake Your Own Turkey Weekend 2004

Here at Inventing Situations, we've tried to carry on the tradition of the Mystery Science Theater 3000 Turkey Day marathons by staging our own . Starting at 12 noon EST, Wednesday, November 24th we'll be offering fans a chance to make their own captions for stills from as many of the films used on MST3k as we can get access and rights to. Since we don't have the money to get rights to anything, we'll just offer up the raw unmstied versions of as many of the public domain [1] films we can get our hands on. As usual, we've got a number of films that are NEW to Inventing Situations this year and we've even got the original theatrical trailers of a few films, and hope to get some new screengrabs for a few of the returning films.

New for 2004: [103] The Mad Monster, [105] The Corpse Vanishes, [320] Appreciating Our Parents, [411] The Magic Sword, [414] Tormented, [509] Girl In Lover's Lane, [514] Is This Love?, [902] The Phantom Planet, [912] Robot Rumpus.
Plus trailers for [602] Invasion U.S.A., [623] The Amazing Transparent Man, [804] The Deadly Mantis
And returning with new grabs after a year's absence, [513] The Brain That Wouldn't Die.

Meanwhile, at the Glitterdome, caution will be thrown to the wind as actual episodes of mst will be offered for captioning on the Cap Board.

While you're waiting for the feast to begin, feel free to check out what's available for capping now.

Be sure to check out Daddy-O's Drive In Dirt, which is a valuable source of information on these films.

A look at years past: 2009 2008 2007 2006 2005 2004 2003 2002

Below is a list of the features and shorts we'll be playing. The shorts always remain in regular rotation here, and the films still show up as SOL Classics in our feature film rotation.

Thanks, the Management
