If you’re one of those people whose friends have been known to say, “I’m never watching a movie with you again!” this is the event for you.
Quickly, secret agents! Obtain popcorn and booze and join us tonight — that’s right, this very night — in an action-packed mission to stop the KGB from obtaining nuclear weapons… made out of diamonds and laser beams! Can Brandon Lee stop a plot to misapply fundamentals of science in order to rule the world? Tune in to find out!
Have a Twitter account? Have some snark? Have a little bit of time tonight for a deliciously bad movie?
Here’s how we do this Mock The Movie thing:
- Start following @MockTM on twitter.
- Start watching Laser Mission on Thursday, January 12th 2012, at 9PM EST. You can find it on Archive.org. You may want to download a copy in advance to keep from flooding the live stream.
- Once you’ve got the movie going, tweet your snarky comments to @MockTM. Directing our tweets to @MockTM will keep our followers from being overwhelmed with our snark!
- Let the snark roll on twitter, but keep in mind, this is not a new release. In your @MockTM tweets, please try not to focus on special effects (or the lack thereof). Instead, focus on the plot, characters, acting, story development, etc.
Snark about bad science is, of course, never unwelcome.
If you don’t feel like snarking along yourself the first time, you can still join us in watching the movie. Just do a Twitter search on @MockTM to get all the snark as you go.
I’ll be, as always, running the Twitter scrape bot, and will post a log here after the movie’s over.
