Movies Of Extraordinary Magnitude

Not one, but TWO of the funniest movies in history have just been released to Blu-Ray this week from the good people at Shout Factory and are well worth your hard-earned comedy bucks. In a week that brings you something as uninspired by Grown Ups 2 (which of course exists...

HEY HEY HEY

As a child of the ‘70’s — an era long ago before cable TV, videotapes/DVDs/Blu-Rays and videogame consoles — the “Saturday Morning Cartoon” blocks on CBS, NBC and ABC were a lifesaver. The shows ran the gamut from classic Chuck Jones “Looney Tunes” shorts to contemporary animation like “Scooby-Doo” and...

Next Sunday, A.D. - Mystery Science Theater 3000 Vol. XXVI

Mystery Science Theater 3000 is the granddaddy of laugh-at-the-screen comedy shows — its protégés range from the Sklar Brothers to “Doug Benson’s Comedy Interruption” to Rifftrax (complete with MST3K’s Mike Nelson, Bill Corbett and Kevin Murphy) — and Shout! Factory soldiers on with XXVI, the 26th (for those of you...

110th TOY FAIR 2013 Opens In New York

Despite the weather, Toy Fair 2013 is open and I am sad I had to miss it. That being said, I will be excitedly gathering pictures over the next few days and compiling my must have toys. Already leading the pack are the BATMAN Original Series range from Mattel and...

Merry Craptacular Christmas

Christmas Eve is upon us and with it comes a cavalcade of holiday classics, cast-offs and crap. For every White Christmas, A Christmas Story or Elf, we get a dozen Lifetime movies starring Valerie Bertinelli or underwhelming big-screen fare like Deck The Halls. But it takes the discerning Christmas viewer...

Laughs And Tears: Mel Brooks And "All In The Family"

Factory brings us The Incredible Mel Brooks: An Irresistible Collection Of Unhinged Comedy. The five-DVD (plus one bonus CD) set is a treasure trove...

All Hallow’s Eve is upon us and a quick and scary Halloween home video round-up is in order. There are precious few good new titles — save for Lionsgate’s amazing The Cabin In The Woods, granted a fantastic special edition — and, with the notable exception of Universal, major-studio catalog...

Halloween Comes Early

I don’t want to be critical of the good people at Shout! Factory, but when it comes to their newest label, Scream Factory, all I can say is: it’s about damn time. While a number of superior start-up genre video labels have appeared over the past decade (Synapse, Code Red,...

Wild And Crazy Guys

Comedian, actor, author, banjo-player, Wild-And-Crazy-Guy— Steve Martin is as iconic a figure in American humor as anyone. With a cinematic range running from the broad (The Jerk, The Man With Two Brains) to the wry (Plains, Trains & Automobiles, L.A. Story) to the dramatic (The Spanish Prisoner, Shopgirl) to the...

Amercian Horror Story was one of last year's biggest breakout hits and so it was no surprise when FX announced that the show would be back for a second season. What did end up being a surprise however, was pretty much everything else. It turns out the show's first season...
