Cool Videos: The MST3k bots riff on Netflix shows and read YouTube comments

12 May 2017 1:02 PM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Yesterday, there was a video of the robots from Mystery Science Theater 3000, Tom Servo and Crow T. Robot (Baron Vaughn and Hampton Yount, respectively), trying to pitch their shows to Netflix's Chief Content Officer. Now, we can see them doing what they do best: riff on other movies, or in this case, other Netflix shows: They then read comments on the internet, instead of the fan mail they... Read More »

Crypt of Curiosities: Something Fishy – A Look at “Gillsploitation” Films

12 May 2017 12:32 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Every horror fan has their favorite type of monster. Some people love shambling zombies, others prefer squid-faced aliens from beyond the stars, and I’m sure there are a few people out there who would swear that The Mangler is the greatest beast to grace the silver screen. But for me, one archetype has always reigned supreme: the scaly fish-man.

I can’t explain why, but ever since I was a kid, sea life has always interested me, so it should come as no surprise that as far as famous monsters go, the Gill-man’s always been my favorite. Unfortunately, being a fan of the Gill-man can lead to some issues. Unlike Dracula, Frankenstein, and The Mummy, the Gill-man was an original creation of Universal, and as such, was not in the public domain. So, while there are many great films bearing those iconic names, the Creature from the Black Lagoon only has three, »

So I don't know how everyone feels, but I've been really enjoying the newest season of Mystery Science Theater 3000, the cult sci-fi comedy show about a guy (in this case comedian Jonah Ray) and his two robot pals Tom Servo and Crow T. Robot (played in this iteration by Baron Vaughn and Hampton Yount, respectively) riffing on bad movies. I think some episodes (like Cry Wilderness and Starcrash) might already be in... Read More »

The Lawnmower Man Collector’s Edition Blu-ray Special Features Announced

9 May 2017 9:58 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Flashback: George Lucas Talks Origins of ‘Star Wars’ and Expanding ‘A New Hope’ Into a Trilogy

4 May 2017 7:15 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

May the Fourth be with you!

Since Disney bought LucasFilm in 2012, excitement around May 4 has been tied to new additions to the Star Wars universe. (This is the third consecutive year that a new film in the franchise has been released.) But there is an even more festive reason to hug the nearest Wookie this “Star Wars Day,” aka “May the Fourth:” the fast approaching 40th anniversary of Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope.

Last month, at the 2017 Star Wars Celebration, George Lucas dropped by the commemoration to discuss Episode IV, as well as pay tribute to the passing of our princess general, Carrie Fisher. In his reflection on the movie, Lucas summarized his original intention for the now-iconic film.

Hitchcock/Truffaut – Review

30 April 2017 5:21 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

I was 12 years old in 1968. One of my favorite places was the library, in those days the closest library to us was the Tesson Ferry Branch in South St. Louis County. My most prized possession was my library card.

My Mother used to drop me off there on a Saturday or a summer weekday and I would spend the whole day reading. One of those days I pulled a book off the shelf called Hitchcock/Truffaut and sat down to read it. I knew who Alfred Hitchcock was from his television show, and from his monthly Mystery Magazine as well as anthologies that I was reading avidly, Tales That Frightened Even Me, More Tales for the Nervous and, my favorite, Stories to be Read After Dark.

I was aware that Alfred Hitchcock was most renowned for directing movies. I had seen a few on television, Saboteur was a mainstay on Kplr TV, »

I Bury The Living / The Screaming Skull

29 April 2017 11:10 AM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

I Bury The Living 

Blu-ray

Shout! Factory

1958 / B&W / 1:85 / / 76 min. / Street Date April 25, 2017

Starring: Richard Boone, Theodore Bikel.

Cinematography: Frederick Gately

Film Editor: Frank Sullivan

Written by Louis Garfinkle

Produced by Albert Band, Louis Garfinkle

Directed by Albert Band

 

I Bury the Living implicates us in a primal childhood thought-crime… what if you stepped on a crack and really did break your mother’s back? What if simply wishing someone dead made it so? Guilt, pure and simple, gives this off–kilter 50’s chiller its lasting power.

The film boasts an off–kilter leading man as well with the crater-faced Richard Boone as Robert Kraft, a small town business man railroaded into managing the family run cemetery. To make matters worse, the perennially gloomy Kraft, already skittish about his disconcerting new position, is saddled with a decrepit, unnaturally chilly workplace watched over by an unnerving bit of decoration, an »

16 Good Movie Pick-Me-Ups on Netflix Right Now

26 April 2017 8:51 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Why so glum, chum? Movies are fun and they need watching.

In the immortal words of Shane Black via Geena Davis in The Long Kiss Goodnight, “Life is pain. Get used to it.” These days life has been really painful though, and it’s not so easy to get used to it. Thankfully movies are always here to pick us up when we need it, or bring us down if we’re looking to wallow. This month we’ve made a list of movies that will leave you smiling and feeling good about humanity after you watch them — at least for a little while. Click on their titles to be taken to their Netflix pages.

Pick of the Month: Big Trouble in Little China (1986)

It’s possible that Big Trouble in Little China might be the stupidest movie ever made. It’s about a fast-talking, rock-stupid, man-child truck driver battling Asian mystics over the fate of his »

The Bursting Bubble of Streaming Services

26 April 2017 7:51 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Everything old is new again, especially when it comes to distribution.

So let’s say you start with Netflix, because everyone has Netflix, and you’re not going to pass on another season of Mystery Science Theater 3000 or Stranger Things. That’s $9.99 a month out of the gate. And then maybe you add FilmStruck, because who wouldn’t want to watch all those AMC and Criterion Collection titles? That’s another $10.99. Finally, let’s throw in another niche streaming service for some of that specific content that the broader services may not provide. Maybe you’d like to scratch your horror itch with Shudder ($4.99), catch up on every season of Star Trek on CBS All Access ($5.99), or finally get around to watching The Wire on HBOGo ($14.99). And of course, none of this even touches on the bigger Netflix competitors like Amazon Prime or the international platforms not yet available in the United States (DisneyLife). There’s »

Watch Patton Oswalt on Feeling Unworthy of 'Mystery Science Theater 3000' Reboot

26 April 2017 6:38 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Patton Oswalt is thrilled be part of the Mystery Science Theater 3000 Netflix reboot – but his younger self would be horrified at the casting, as he told Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday's Tonight Show

The comedian plays the bouffant-sporting "TV's Son of TV's Frank," a role first portrayed by Frank Conniff on the B-movie-bashing cult comedy. Watching his revived series now, Oswalt hears a judgmental inner voice from his past. "I'm just very self-conscious," he says. "I still have the 22-year-old me in my head, going, 'This is not Frank Conniff. »

The Most Disappointing Year in Movies

25 April 2017 10:02 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

In 1997, a film cynic was born.

Seeing Star Wars ruined should have been a sign that 1997 would be the worst year ever for blockbusters. George Lucas’s Special Editions, intended to “improve” the original trilogy but mostly doing the opposite, started arriving in January. By the time of the release of the new version of Return of the Jedi in March, my anticipation for anything ought to have been demolished. But I couldn’t have imagined that was only the beginning.

Actually, the first steps towards the end of an era were made in the early ’90s. That just wasn’t a great time for big movies compared to the prior decade. Some of my biggest letdowns of all time included Hudson Hawk in 1991 and Death Becomes Her in 1992. Jurassic Park wasn’t good enough for me, having read the book. Independence Day put me to sleep in the theater. Beloved »

Patton Oswalt Pens Emotional Tribute to His Wife on One-Year Anniversary of Her Death

22 April 2017 10:05 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Patton Oswalt marked the one-year anniversary of his wife Michelle McNamara with an emotional tribute yesterday. The actor and comedian wrote a lengthy Facebook post about what life has been like for himself and the couple’s eight-year-old daughter Alice, writing that “it’s awful, but it’s not fatal” and describing how he took off his wedding ring for the first time because “it felt obscene” to continue wearing it.

“I’m one year into this new life — one I never even imagined, and I can imagine some pretty pessimistic and dark contingencies, some stomach-freezing ‘what ifs.’ But not this one. This one had such a flat, un-poetic immediacy. The world gazes at you like a hungry but indifferent reptile when you’re widowed,” writes Oswalt.
