James Reviews Mystery Science Theater 3000 Volume Xviii [DVD Review]

I feel as if this Mystery Science Theater 3000 review is the toughest one I’ve ever had to do. Not because the films themselves are hard to review. I’m one in the belief that MST3K works on so many levels and am always in the mood to watch the gang rip into some of the shittiest films in the history of filmdom. To review the films would be benign, mainly because do you review the films themselves or do you review the content of the comedy? And how can one review comedy in general?

Mystery Science Theater 3000 Volume Xviii has some of the best episodes, one of which I had forgotten existed up until watching it again. Shame on me, I know. The films are Lost Continent, Crash of the Moons, The Beast of Yucca Flats and Jack Frost (no, it’s not the Michael Keaton film

Party Favors: News Harsh

  • Quick Stop
Hamsterdam, MD - News at 4:20. As part of the celebration for the upcoming season of Weeds, Glick University polled over 4,000 Americans about what TV News personalities they wanted to see get high during a broadcast.

Naturally there were ground rules including the disqualifications of news organizations that contain notorious on air potheads. This meant no votes were collected for the cast of The Daily Show, Colbert Report and Fox and Friends. You think Steve Doocey is sober? Hard to think that any of those folks have eyes that aren’t pied 24-7.

10, Bill O’Reilly (Fox News) had a lot of folks who reacted that it’d be like, “Dude, I’m getting high with dad.” Of course this initial elation is cut down with the horrifying fact of “Dude, I’m getting high with dad and it’s just not someone I need to party with.”

TV on DVD: July 13, 2010

If you've been having an itch to buy a television show on DVD, but you just can't figure out which series you want to have, we're here to help you out. July 13 will have a lot of brand new selections of show DVDs that you'll probably be dying to have. White Collar? Check. Psych? Check. FIFA World Cup? Triple check. Here's a list of what's hitting DVD on Tuesday.

Saving Grace, The Final Season - For such a short-lived show (only three seasons), the finale of Saving Grace really got a lot of people talking. Now, in order to capitalize upon that success, the third and final season of the TNT original series is being churned out on DVD less than a month after the finale aired. I'm sure this one will be a big seller. Order it here.

Party Favors: You’ve Been Framed

  • Quick Stop
Alberta - Spring is here and truth shall be in the air around Durham, North Carolina as the Full Frame Documentary Film Festival blossoms from April 8 - 11. This is a four day feast of prime cinema featuring real people with real lives and real issues that weren’t shaped by the beancounters in marketing. Last year’s festival featured Oscar winner The Cove and nominees Burma VJ and Food Inc. Looking through this year’s line up, there’s plenty reasons to make the trip to the Bull City if you need to escape from the unmitigated hype of Tiger Woods at the Masters.

And Everything is Going Fine is Steven Soderbergh’s biography of Spalding Gray. The monologist was the one man story machine in Swimming in Cambodia and Monster in a Box. Soderbergh directed Gray’s Gray’s Anatomy. He killed himself after seeing Tim Burton’s Big Fish.
