Not Available on DVD: ‘Two on a Guillotine’

29 July 2009 6:00 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

The guillotine was a device developed during the French Revolution and was used in carrying out thousands of executions. It consisted of an upright frame from which a sharp blade is suspended. The blade is raised with a rope and then allowed to drop, quickly severing the victim’s head from their body. In 1964, the Aurora plastics company, famous for their series of best-selling monster model kits, produced a 1/12th scale model of an actual working guillotine complete with a little victim whose head could be lopped off with the flick of a switch. Though tame compared with some items in popular culture today, parents groups at the time complained that it was warping the young minds of future baby boomers but the toy was cool and proved to be a hit.

Blendcast: Three Men And An R.O.U.S.

28 July 2009 9:38 PM, PDT | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Oh God. Sometimes you just saunter along thinking all is well and then you have Katey Rich on the Blendcast and her appearance makes you realize just how far you have left to go as a broadcast journalist. That just happened. Good thing there.s enough references to Rick Moranis, Bill Curtis, Jonah Hill and that Zoltar Machine from Big to distract our more ignorant viewers. Listen below as Katey Rich talks about Comic Con, Trevor Clippert throws out at least ten Princess Bride quotes, Brain Carraher bitches about Phil Hellmuth and Mack Rawden lets you know what happens when a gypsy curses a pregnant woman. G-Force is also slandered with venom and virulent ire, some nice things are said about Freaks And Geeks, and we all plea for Raaaaaaaaandy to be given his own movie. Warning!: This week.s Blendcast is littered with violence against children jokes, obnoxious »
