Mystery Science Theater 3000: THE INCREDIBLE MELTING MAN   Rewatch 
November 11, 2021 3:48 PM - Season 7, Episode 4 - Subscribe

Rewatch! One of MST3K's Double Adjective Man movies, the others being The Amazing Colossal Man, Teenage Cave Man and Amazing Transparent Man. (There's also Indestructable Man, The Brute Man, The Projected Man and, of course, The Pumaman.) An astronaut returns to Earth and is affected by something that makes him kill people, kind of like a slightly more competent Monster A-Go-Go. In the host segments, Crow shepherds his movie Earth Vs. Soup to completion and through focus groups, a sequence inspired in no small part by Best Brains' experiences in getting MST3K The Movie made. Previously.

Why would anyone think screaming that at strangers pointing guns at you would somehow resolve the situation peacefully?

What amuses me about this movie is how the villain's weakness is right there in the title. Kind of like, "The Astounding Decaying Man," or "The Ultimately Futile Man," or "The Pretty Much Self-Resolving Problem Man."

What I don't like about this movie is the gore SFX. It's like my least favorite thing about this genre. I don't care how fake it looks or what its basis is, it completely pushes me away from the screen.

I'm just the opposite: for me the gore is part of the charm, especially when it is so terribly done. I mean, it grosses me out, but I enjoy the gross-out (yes, I collected Garbage Pail Kids).
