Movie: And they lived happily ever after..
Mike: Yeah, until the mushroom guy moved in.

The Sampo joke from The Day the Earth Froze is great though. I mean, it doesn't even make sense. What is it? Still makes me laugh  smile

SAMPO! That's a small TV that is built into a rectangular radio type structure. They explain it on another episode but I forget which.

But even then it doesn't make any sense in the context of the film ("Bring me my Sampo! My Sampo!)  smile

So, a while ago, I saw the trailer for the Disney film "Brother Bear," and see if this sounds familiar: arrogant guy turned into bear by evil spirits.  Disney's ripping off Jack Frost!  I swear, that's the first thing I thought of when I heard of that movie!

Kevin Murphy, Mike Nelson, and Bill Corbett have a new site in which they review and talk about movies:

http://www.filmcrewonline.com

I see that they're all also involved with a DVD company called Legend Films, which put out the Reefer Madness DVD.  Nelson is doing commentary for some other movies, including yet another edition of Night of the Living Dead, and all three of them are involved with a Three Stooges collection.  But for some reason this company colorizes their movies.  I thought that trend ended years ago.  It seems like a waste of time.  But fortunately, I think the original B&W versions are also included.

Rhino has announced that on august 31, it will release a 2-DVD set containing "Manos" the Hands of Fate and Santa Claus Conquers the Martians!  Yes, one of the most popular episodes ever is finally coming out.  Some of you might remember that several years ago, Rhino conducted a poll asking fans to vote for episodes they'd like to see released.  Well, they mention the poll in their press release, so I guess they finally got around to looking at it.  It seems they're also planning to release more previously unavailable episodes soon, from both Comedy Central and Sci-Fi.

Ignoring all the rest, I only posted to fix that one line. He had the rest right (as far as I could tell. That one line is just something of a catchphrase between me and a friend, along with the screwdrivers bit).

Glad to see they're releasing more MST3K eps. on DVD, but why are they releasing Manos AGAIN? They should include the "Santa Claus" movie with Pitch (the Devil's lackey) instead.

He did his job well with a cheerful face,
But his bosses didn't like him
So they shot him into space.

The worst ever made.

You make lemonade.

When the movies begin or end,

To make his robot friends.

1.  They're both shown in the future.
2. They both make fun of the genre they are said to be.
3.  They both have robots.
4. They are both sprinkled with computer jokes.
5.  They don't/didn't get the just amount of critic-respect they deserve(d).

Feel free to add....

Supposedly they wanted to release the most popular episodes together, and those two are the most popular, according to that poll.  (Mitchell was in third place; it too has already been released on DVD.)  But yes, this is the first time that an episode has been released twice on DVD (others have been on both DVD and videotape).  It's easier just to rerelease a movie than to get the rights to another one.  And maybe they think a two-movie set will sell better than a single movie or a four-movie set.

If you're curious, here's the top ten from the poll:

1. "MANOS" THE HANDS OF FATE
2. SANTA CLAUS CONQUERS THE MARTIANS
3. MITCHELL
4. THE CRAWLING EYE
5. LASERBLAST
6. DIABOLIK
7. GODZILLA VS. MEGALON
8. GAMERA
9. SANTA CLAUS
10. POD PEOPLE

You need to alter that because the comma is part of the URL.

That's an interesting deal, but I'd guess they'll eventually release the Shorts compilation on DVD again (just as they've released Manos twice).  If they do, it's probably not worth paying full price plus $5 shipping when places like Amazon have it for 30% off.  Of course, we don't know when or if the Shorts will be released again....

    Well, they've already announced the next set.  It seems they're going back to the 4-disc format.  It will include:
  • GUNSLINGER
  • TEENAGERS FROM OUTER SPACE
  • ATTACK OF THE GIANT LEECHES (with short: "The Undersea Kingdom Part 1" )
  • MR. B's LOST SHORTS (includes "Mr. B Natural" from WAR OF THE COLOSSAL BEAST, "X Marks The Spot" from KING DINOSAUR, "Hired! Part 1" from BRIDE OF THE MONSTER, "Design for Dreaming" from 12 TO THE MOON, "Johnny At The Fair" from THE REBEL SET) and "Are You Ready for Marriage?" from RACKET GIRLS)

Attack of the Giant Leeches and Teenagers from Outer Space are new; the others have been released previously on videotape (and the "Design for Dreaming" short is also available on Shorts vol. 3).

In case you haven't seen it, "Mr. B Natural" is the best short they ever did.

Things I noticed about the relationship between MST3K and Futurama:

1.  They're both shown in the future.
2. They both make fun of the genre they are said to be.
3.  They both have robots.
4. They are both sprinkled with computer jokes.
5.  They don't/didn't get the just amount of critic-respect they deserve(d).

Feel free to add....

16. They both an underrated female character (Amy in Futurama, Gypsy in MST3K) who is usually in the background and in some episodes only appear in the opening.

17. They both a Josh Weinstein in the crew (Josh "J. Elvis" Weinstein played Dr. F.'s first sidekick, Dr. Lawrence "Larry" Erhardt and was the original voice/puppeteer of Servo and Gypsy)

18. They both are more successful on DVD than on first-run TV.

I have the Essentials set.  It's a standard DVD case with two discs on either side (and a sheet of chapter breaks floating in the middle).  The bonus Shorts disc is just in an envelope inside.  The Manos disc has a new label but is otherwise identical to the previous release; it still has the Poopie! extra.  I haven't watched much yet, just Poopie! (which wasn't so great) and the short "Once Upon a Honeymoon."  That's the one where a couple can't have sex until they finish writing a song, and there's a guardian angel who looks like Charles Nelson Reilly who's suppsed to help them, but he doesn't really seem to do anything.  I think the short was meant to sell telephones somehow.  You get to see a cordless rotary phone.

My favorite episode is probably The Cave Dwellers ( i havnt seen alot of episodes due to sci fi not showing it anymore) but the guy with the sunglasses almost killed me. And the short Spring into Summer was awesome.

I just saw a commerical for MST3K for the first time yesterday.  I think $25 is a bit too much for what amounts to two dvds and one disc of extras.  The title "Essentials" should include more than just two episodes.  Put in "Mitchell" or "Godzilla v. Megalon" or "The Killer Shrews" or something.

And, out of curiousity, can they put Comedy Central episodes on the same dvds as Sci-Fi eps?  I bought collection 4 a few weeks ago, and those were all Sci-Fi eps.  Good ones, btw, but  I'm just curious if Best Brains can put any episodes together and sell them.

Well, the four-disc sets usually seem to go for more than $40, so three for $25 is a better deal.  (Three of the six DVD sets also include compilations of shorts.)

I hadn't thought about it, but each of the collections either has only Sci-Fi episodes or only Comedy Central/Comedy Channel episodes.  I don't see why they couldn't put both in one collection, but they haven't.

seeing as MST3K is not available on DVD in the UK, I'm having to download (naughty, I know) off the net. I've just watched 'Prince of Space', it was alright, I laughed more at the poor dubbing than any of the teams comments. I've just finished getting 'Gorgo', which looks promising.  smile

    The lineup for the next DVD set has been announced:
  • The Killer Shrews (with short: Junior Rodeo Daredevils)
  • Hercules Unchained
  • Hercules Against the Moon Men
  • Prince of Space
  • Assignment: Venezuela

In case you don't know, Assignment: Venezuela is a short that runs 20-25 minutes and was never shown on television, though it was released on videotape. This is the first time that one set has contained shows from both Comedy Central and Sci-Fi. The set comes out in April.

Was Prince of Space the one with the Chicken Ruler, or was it the one with the Neptunians?  I forget...like two movies are almost exactly the same. (Daring young man who lives with 100 kids is actually intergalatic hero, but no one ever puts 2 and 2 together).

Prince of Space had the chicken people, led by "Phantom of Krankor." The other one you're thinking of is Invasion of the Neptune Men. The movies are almost identical.

Krankor! That's it.  I was confused, because MST3K dressed someone up as Krankor during one of the host skits for Invasion of the Neptune Men.  But you are right, they are almost exactly the same movie, except with villians in dumber costumes.

Which one had the stock footage of WWII?

Crow: "No!  Not the Hitler Museum!"
