THIS ISLAND EARTH by Zatransis THIS ISLAND EARTH by Zatransis
Hey gang!

I painted this up for my wife because it was her birthday yesterday! I painted it pretty high res and printed it out like a poster. I gotta say, having your stuff printed adds a sort of value to it that kind of gets lost in digital work on the internets.

When we were 18 and not yet dating, we would watch Mystery Science Theatre 3000 the movie and laugh our asses off. This is the movie that they "discuss" in that installment of MST3K so it has a bit of a sentimental quality to it.

"Cal, you bitch!"

The likenesses aren't super accurate but it more reflects what we always joke about them. She ended up loving it so I am a happy camper, hehe.

Hope you dig as well!

M!

I honestly dont give a damn what MST3K says, this movie was great! A true testament to 50's science fiction and a true classic

Funny thing, Coleman Francis, director of Red Zone Cuba and various other boring movies played the mailman in this movie.

Sweet! I saw this on MST3K. Terrible movie, but somehow awesome. I do love the cheese movies though...

"We did it and you know it!" Best line in the MST3K version. I think the likenesses are great, specialy the old man.

I know this film has a reputation as a classic sci-fi film, but whenever I see it mentioned in a book on the history of film or on a sci-fi website, all I can think is "NOR-MAL VIEEEEEWWW!!" Nice to see someone else feels the same way.
