Does it have to be DVD or BluRay? If you're looking for fun horror movies, I recommend following up Ghostbusters II with Cast a Deadly Spell. It's hard to find because it was only ever released on rental-only VHS, but it's my favorite film of all time, and right up there with Ghostbusters and Tremors in terms of… » 10/17/14 8:41pm Friday 8:41pm

Yeah. If you count reusing at least one important story element from a previously transmitted story then Big Finish is about 90% fan service, but it's very excellent fan service that doesn't get in the way of storytelling (well, not too often at any rate), and in recent years has taken to providing… » 10/17/14 4:47pm Friday 4:47pm

Don't forget that Bryce's computer system only had enough memory to render Max's head, there's no internet, just lots of independent computer systems, and for some reason, nobody has cell phones (in fact, most phones look like stylish rotary dial phones that were outdated before Max Headroom was even filmed). » 10/15/14 7:31pm Wednesday 7:31pm

It's sort of ironic, but they started doing RiffTrax because it was a way for them to riff on the big blockbusters they'd never have the budget to do MST3K, but since hardly anybody can be bothered to synch up the audio tracks on the big movies manually, they just end up stealing the pre-synched versions posted… » 10/15/14 6:56pm Wednesday 6:56pm

Luckily, my pipe rack full of Sonic Screwdrivers combines with a classic Star Trek mirror-universe agonizer was enough to make short work of the severed Cyberman head squiggling towards me. I then grabbed my classic TARDIS key and set out in search of the nearest sci-fi fan who had bought one of those full-sized… » 10/12/14 3:43pm 10/12/14 3:43pm

Thank you!! I was trying to remember where I had seen the Mrs. Pitt actress before! I was certain she had been in either Doctor Who, the Jeremy Brett version Sherlock Holmes, or Campion... something historical, where she also played an easily offended old biddy, but for the life of me, I couldn't remember which… » 10/11/14 8:05pm 10/11/14 8:05pm

Paul McGann stars in a 2004 Doctor Who fever dream

I vaguely recall hearing about this abortive project shortly before Doctor Who returned in 2005, but never knew that the pilot had ever made it past the executive boardroom. Filmed at around the same time, it's a tiny snapshot of what Paul McGann might have looked like as The Doctor, had the BBC decided to bring him… » 10/11/14 9:03pm 10/11/14 9:03pm
