Special Event: RiffTrax: Spy High

Next up for MST Club.... this is a fairly recent release, both in movie (2000) and riff (February 2024). Hi-tek hakker kidz, and their dog, are recruited by a government agent to foil the plans of a nefarious video game company to put a mind control weapon on the internet. Think about what it implies to have a movie about hacker kids on the internet in the year 2000. I think a little more kindly of the movie knowing that nowadays the kids would be in their 30s and cursing the name of Elon Musk.

MST Club is what we call our weekly show of riffing material, held Thursday nights starting at 7 PM US Eastern Time (that's 4 PM Pacific), at https://cytu.be/r/metafilter_mst3kclub. The main event starts at 9 ET/6 PT.

Note that sometimes the riffs we should area bit 90s-edgy. Most of the time they're okay, but the older ones (maybe up to around 2015 or so?), once in a while, resorted to comedy that we'd look a little askance at today, especially regarding homophobia, transphobia and racism. It's not frequent, and rarely got excessive because the MST crew has always been pretty good-hearted in general, but mores change. We've learned to just ignore it in the channel, but I figure I should mention it if you decide to drop by.
