Mystery Science Theater is Back! (Sorta)

OK, so it's not on TV. But that's pretty much the only bad thing about Cinematic Titanic, the new project from Mystery Science Theater 3000 creator Joel Hodgson. Hodgson has reunited the original cast of the show — Trace Beaulieu and J. Elvis Weinstein, the original Crow and Tom Servo, respectively — for a new project making fun of movies.

They haven't announced a ton of specifics about their new "lean, mean movie-riffing machine," but you can sign up for a newsletter to get updates. Right now, the team plans to have its first project available for the holidays. Cinematic Titanic will also premiere a live show in San Francisco in December — but unfortunately, it's not open to the public. (It's for Lucasfilm employees only; anyone want to sneak me in?)

Is this a competitor to Rifftrax, the DVD commentary project started by the second MST3K host, Mike Nelson, and the Servo and Crow of his era? Time will tell. All I know is, if there's double the snarky movie humor in the world, everyone wins!

Awesome! I never realised it but Joel vs Mike would be freaking awesome!!! Of course, Mike would totally win, but Joel holds his own. Anyway, great that there's a second option because new rifftrax every two weeks is not enough!

i've been making my way through "the film crew" with the gen II mst3k folks. i mean, how can you go wrong when you're poking fun at a movie with peter graves! (i give mike props for stepping into joel's shoes. he kept the show funny as a writer for years and the show's commentaries stayed funny throughout the series.) any show whose aim is to make fun of movies sounds like a netflix addition to me. whether it's mike or joel - it's good fun.

I loved that show! And had such a crush on Joel. He will always be the only MST3k host for me. ♥ Thank you for the heads up! Signing up now!
