Something to Watch: DVDs

In movies there don’t seem to be a lot of choices this week; Stake Land pretty much looks like it, and I am not terribly enthused about this one. However, there is a box set that should be fun: Mystery Science Theater 3000: MST3K vs. Gamera XXI has all 5 Gamera films with the famous […]

Might Be Giants: Tubthumping

The AV Club is an interesting web site that does a lot of things, one of which is the Undercover Project each year, in which a band covers a song by a different band. As soon as a band covers a song, it is removed from the list of songs to be covered. One of […]

Cowboys & Aliens is the major release this weekend, and you can believe I will be there to see it on the big screen. Not since the days of the Radio Ranch (1935, Gene Autry versus the aliens living underground and hiding from the cowboys) have we seen a story like this. If you are […]
