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. Are the boys on the SoL just trying to be funny or are they confused? They repeatedly insert jokes about the wrong Scandinavian country. Evidently Sampo is based on Finnish mythology and the lead hero is played by a Finnish actor. I myself thought it was Russian. The fantasy film was backed by Russian money with a mostly Russian crew including director Aleksandr Ptushko, who also directed Ilya Muromets, another film featured on MST3K. It is also very much in the style of the Russian mythical fantasy tale Jack Frost that I reviewed here previously. The plot contains a romance, a hero's journey, and lots of magic. The dubbing and narration leave much lost in translation to American audiences who may struggle to follow the cultural myths.
A Finnish mythological epic produced in Finland, it's silly mostly due to the dubbing but even so the bad editing and cheap costumes made the film all the siller.
