24 July 2016 9:58 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Netflix is reviving yet another cult favorite. New episodes of”Mystery Science Theater 3000,” in which a captive man and his robot friends offer live commentary on amusingly bad B movies, will head  to the streaming service in the “not too distant future,” according to the Hollywood Reporter. Patton Oswalt is attached to star as Son of TV’s Frank.

The news follows a Kickstarter campaign from series creator Joel Hodgson last year that raised nearly $6 million to film a 14-episode new season; no other film or television project has ever raised more via a crowdfunding campaign. Kevin Murphy (Tom Servo), Bill Corbett (Crow T. Robot) and Mary Jo Pehl (Pearl Forrester) are all set to reprise their original roles. Joining them and Oswalt will be Felicia Day as Kinga Forrester, a »

‘BoJack Horseman’ Eviscerates SeaWorld With Killer (Whale) Strip Club Sequence

22 July 2016 1:59 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

[Editor’s Note: “BoJack Horseman” Season 3 is a feat of storytelling on both a serialized and episodic level. To honor the impressive accomplishment, IndieWire will be reviewing all 12 episodes over the next few weeks. Below, we delve into Episodes 2 & 3.]

“What are you talking about? It’s just whales!”

The idea of seeing zoos as prisons is nothing new, but Raphael Bob-Waksberg took the concept a step further in “BoJack Kills,” the third episode of “BoJack Horseman” Season 3. In light of the allegations made against SeaWorld in the wake of “Blackfish,” the opening moments of Episode 3 obliterated all other interpretations, efficiently and effectively establishing how parents paying for their children to watch abused animals perform is pretty damn similar to grown men throwing dollar bills for grown women to scoop up from their knees.

“Families come together to admire the fine female form of the majestic killer whale. It’s educational!”

“You and your little ones are going to get moist!”

“Bring your pre-pubescent daughters who are just beginning to be cognizant of a woman’s role in the world. They won’t internalize deeply problematic notions about the commodification »

22 July 2016 9:06 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

This week RiffTrax is celebrating ten years of its life on the web. To celebrate, comedians Michael J. Nelson, Kevin Murphy, Bill Corbett and the whole team created a “RiffTrax 10 Year Highlight Reel” for their loyal fans to enjoy.  

“It was hard to condense 10 years of making movies funny into just six minutes, but we think we did it,” said the RiffTrax team online.

For those unfamiliar with RiffTrax, they are hilarious commentaries added to blockbuster movies, short films, TV shows and cheesy B-movies, all created by the stars of the Mystery Science Theater 3000 or better known as MST3K.

Ranked: All 22 Mario Bava Movies Unknowingly, I first encountered director/cameraman Mario Bava (1914–1980) in the summer of 1999 when the Sci-Fi Channel aired the final episode of Mystery Science Theater 3000 featuring the superhero film Danger: Diabolik. In that condescending context the film didn’t really make an impact, but a few years later in college…

Highlighting Can’t Miss Comic-Con Panels

12 July 2016 10:37 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

What caught my eye in the massive schedule breakdown.

I’m trying to remember when nerd culture became the zeitgeist of my era… I imagine it all started with the moon landing, it being one of the greatest awe-inspiring events in human history, exponentially heightened by a medium — TV — that allowed for nearly the entire world to partake in the moment together. That was a huge win for nerds, even if the idols created from it — Armstrong and Aldrin — were hunkier and jockier than the scientists and mathematicians in the background that made it all possible. Bill Gates is the epitome of a nerd, but yet he’s super-successful; he gave Earth a device that enables me to watch pornogra… I mean, study the teachings of Jesus Christ whenever and wherever I want; and he’s infamous for his business acumen and dominating, competitive zeal. Reading comic books was always an endeavor undertaken by nerds and nerds »

As the “Mystery Science Theater 3000” reunion show readies for broadcast to theaters across the country tonight, TheWrap asked series star Kevin Murphy why the show has remained so popular over a decade after it left the airwaves. “We love any chance we get to talk back to the media that keeps being poured over us,” Murphy said. “We made it our mission, so I think people give us that opportunity to do it for them, to talk back to your TV or a movie screen.

Review: ‘Independence Day: Resurgence’ Will Make You Wish Humanity Would Just Give Up

24 June 2016 10:43 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

On July 2nd, they arrive. On July 3rd, they strike. On July 4th, we fight back. On June 24th, 2016, we…wish they had won.

In the summer of 1996, Roland Emmerich’s “Independence Day” reinvented the alien invasion genre for the blockbuster era, using newfangled digital technology to make a B-movie big enough to bring the whole world together. Its reputation may be overinflated by millennials who subsist on a steady diet of their own petrified kitsch, but Emmerich’s war of the worlds has nevertheless come to represent a type of full-bodied studio spectacle for which we all ought to be nostalgic. In fact, the self-described “master of disaster” seems really pissed at the people who aren’t. His lazy insult of a sequel — threatened since the day the first movie first cast its long shadow over America’s multiplexes — is ultimately nothing more than a giant middle finger to »
