    Watching some of the old MST3K episodes available for streaming on Hulu and Netflix (there is a different random selection on each platform). Whether it is Joel or Mike watching these awful movies with the bots I do not envy their torture. Their snarky comments add some entertainment value, but my ratings are based on the movie's quality itself and not the commentary broadcast from the satellite of love. AKA Monstrosity. A completely misogynistic plot. It only exists to objectify women. Mascelli, the author of The 5 Cs of Cinematography was given directing credit. Strangely two women share screenplay and associate producer credits (as well as props and wardrobe credits) so perhaps there is some overt subtext in the self-hatred and fear of growing old from the lead old woman (Eaton) wanting her brain transferred to a young sexy body. A low-budget producer named Jack Pollexfen also receives uncredited writing and directing credit on IMDb. Too much narration covers for lack of audio quality or simple lack of script and shooting quality. This obnoxious mess is truly a monstrosity.

    Hmm, lately I've been giving a lot of these 50's sci-fi and horror B movies two star ratings. I guess that's because none of them really stand above each other in terms of quality and enjoyment, and all of them wind up being pretty much the same. Well, The Atomic Brain is no exception. It features some horrible narration over a movie that didn't really need it to tell its story. Actually, watching it without sound, you can pretty much get what's going on. So, what the movie needed was character, and it didn't really have a lot of that. It did have a bitchy old woman, a serious but mad doctor, beautiful young females speaking different accents (the British gal's accent is atrociously bad), and you also have some half-witted plot about finding the perfect specimen for an aging rich lady's plan to have her brain transplanted into that of a young female. The stuff with one of the girls given the brain of a cat is actually the best stuff in the whole movie, and the funniest (unintentionally, of course). I'd recommend it to anyone who's a fan of Mystery Science Theater, and if I'm not mistaken, they did an episode on this particular movie, so there ya go.

    Another low budget sci-fi movie from the early sixties with a misleading title. I mean it does have to do with brains, at least, but they're not atomic. The acting is horrible, the story is flawed in obvious ways, and it's kind of boring sometimes, but it could have been worse. Overall, a bad movie, but if you really suspend your disbelief, it's somewhat entertaining.

    I got this in a 3 movie collection from Something Weird Video, so I knew from the start it was going to be strange. We have 3 women, who are hired sight unseen to come to a household, there real purpose is to be the body for a old women?s brain, we have our mad scientist who gets pissed and puts the brain in a cat. Its old school B&W. Nothing that stood out. But still not a waste of time. Only 2 1/2 stars
