Afterlife Blues update.


I've been rediscovering my lifelong love of Mystery Science Theater 3000 lately. In addition to watching lots of old episodes and my planned viewing of RiffTrax Live, I picked up The Wasp Woman, an episode of Cinematic Titanic, the similar project currently being run by a disjoint set of MST3K alumni. I'm going to have to say that it is damn charming and I recommend it unreservedly. While RiffTrax delivers an audio track which you can sync up to a DVD yourself and focuses on big Hollywood blockbusters, Cinematic Titanic is more old-school with Joel and the crew present on video in a version of Shadowrama. The movies are also more like the old MST3K store of schlocky, low-budget sci-fi and horror flicks. The Wasp Woman, in particular, is just dreadful. Wow. (As if "Produced by Roger Corman" wasn't a big fat clue that would be the case.) But the show itself was fun and beautifully produced and left a smile on my face. I'm gonna have to get me some more of these, I think.

It's pretty interesting to me that between RiffTrax and Cinematic Titanic, every single member of the old MST3K cast (even Josh Weinstein!) is now back on the field doing their thing. Truly we live in an age of wonders.
