New This Week


Mystery Science Theater 3000 XXV brings four more cinema for Joel Hodgson and Mike Nelson to make sport of.

From the press release:

Mystery Science Theater 3000: XXV brings us

Robot Holocaust, the tale of the young drifter, Neo, who leads a ragtag band of rebels against a robot army and its evil overlord, the Dark One;

Kitten With A Whip, wherein Ann-Margret embodies youth gone bad in this story of a juvenile delinquent whose violent escape from reform school leads her to the house of a senatorial candidate;

Operation Kid Brother, a knock-off spy film also known by another title, features Neil Connery (brother of Sean) as a plastic surgeon with hypnotic powers and a talent for lip reading who is recruited by a secret organization to take on a crime syndicate bent on destroying all steel-based power in the world; and

Revenge Of The Creature, the less than classic sequel to Universal's classic monster movie The Creature From The Black Lagoon, has the luckless monster in captivity at a South Florida aquarium. He falls for a beautiful scientist and, clearly aware that his looks pose a challenge, foregoes the usual courtship rituals and kidnaps her.

Also included are all new bonus features, including introductions by Mike Nelson and Joel Hodgson, Life After MST3K: J. Elvis Weinstein, Jack Arnold at Universal, Life After MST3K: Bill Corbett and four exclusive Mini-Posters by artist Steve Vance.


Season two of “Star Trek: The Next Generation” hits Blu-ray today.

The series was still wobbly at this point, despite the arrival of Diana Muldaur, Whoopi Goldberg, The Borg and Jonathan Frakes’ facial hair.

Writer Melinda Snodgrass (“Measure of a Man”) joined the show in season two, but the fellows who would really whip the franchise into shape – Michael Piller, Ronald D. Moore, René Echevarria and Ira Steven Behr – didn’t find their ways into the writer’s room until season three.

From the press release:

Adding to the exclusivity and collectability of the Blu-ray release is an HD, "Extended Cut" of "The Measure of a Man," which includes deleted scenes and different angles from the broadcast version. The original version of the episode is included, as well as a "Hybrid Extended Cut," combining the high-definition on-air version of "The Measure of a Man" with video of the extra material taken from an early VHS rough-cut of the episode that was in the writer's (Melinda Snodgrass) archives.

The spectacular collection boasts a must-see reunion of the cast, who were brought together earlier this year in Calgary in celebration of the 25th anniversary of the series. Produced exclusively for the series' Blu-ray, this never-before-seen reunion roundtable chat features all of the best known cast regulars, joining together for the first time in years to tape a discussion about the legacy of the series, including Patrick Stewart (Captain Jean-Luc Picard), Jonathan Frakes (Commander William T. Riker, LeVar Burton (Lt. Commander Geordi La Forge), Marina Sirtis (Counselor Deanna Troi), Brent Spiner (Lt. Commander Data), Michael Dorn (Lieutenant Worf), Gates McFadden (Dr. Beverly Crusher) and Wil Wheaton (Wesley Crusher).

STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION - THE SECOND SEASON also includes over 120 minutes of brand-new special features, including a two-part, in-depth documentary on the making of Season 2 entitled "Making It So: Continuing Star Trek: The Next Generation" - Strange New Worlds (Part 1), and New Life and New Civilizations (Part 2), and a gag reel that was created from newly recovered 35mm film elements and transferred for the very first time to high-definition.
