Mystery Science Theater


No, we’re not just talking about old movies seen within newer movies here; this is extreme stock footage – using the old to create a new narrative, something for fun, or even for the sake of story. And in the interest of avoiding every film that ever used stock footage – this is the select few that did so in much more creative ways than simply sticking it the background or in a cutaway like some Ed Wood film. This is stock footage with a twist.

Welcome back to This Week In DVD! Lots of new releases to choose from, but sadly, most of them are better left unwatched. As always, if you see something you like, click on the image to buy it. The Weight of the Nation Americuh! This should come as news to no one, but the United States is full of fatties. Almost 70% of Americans are technically overweight or obese, and the causes for this are as numerous as ice cream flavors. The people themselves are ultimately responsible of course, but corporations, schools, and government inaction are equally culpable. This devastating HBO doc is broken into four parts: Consequences, Choices, Children In Crisis and Challenges. It looks at the problem from all sides identifying causal factors and their eventually deadly outcomes, and in a perfect world it would be mandatory viewing for classrooms and households alike.



What is Movie News After Dark? It’s a hunter of the best stories of the day. Most days. Pretty much every week. It works 24/7 to give you one article per night. Because sleep is for the week. And whatnot. We begin this evening with a new image from Breaking Bad and its upcoming season five premiere, a shot of a particular character who is likely to be the most interesting story. At least, early on in the season. How will everyone’s favorite henchman Mike (Jonathan Banks) react to the events that concluded season four? This new image gives us a bit of a preview.

Welcome back to This Week in DVD! It’s pretty slim pickings this week with the best release requiring a region-free player, but there are still a few titles worth a rental. Some of this week’s releases include David Cronenberg’s A Dangerous Method, Angelina Jolie’s In the Land Of Blood and Honey, the 80’s shocker Don’t Go in the House and more. As always, if you see something you like, click on the image to buy it. The Yellow Sea (UK) A man finds himself in over his head with gambling debts and decides to head to Korea to look for his wife who went there months prior. The trip’s financiers task him with an assassination to wipe his debt clean, but what should have been a simple act becomes something far more complicated and messy. This is the first Korean production to be co-financed by a major US studio (Fox), but thankfully it seems to have had no negative effect on the finished product. Hong-jon Na’s film is just as wonderful and brutal as his debut, The Chaser, but it benefits from a deeper, more political story. Not to say it shies away from the action and violence… there is some spectacular bloodletting here in addition to gun/hatchet/fist fights and chases. **NOTE – This is a region2 DVD which requires either a region-free player or the willingness to watch on your PC.**
