5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Film Crew DVD Yet!, October 14, 2007
By 
This review is from: The Film Crew: The Giant of Marathon (DVD)
Like many other MiSTies out there, I was sad to see Mike and the 'Bots fall to earth in the last ever episode of MST3K and while I kept up with Mike's work with Legend Films (he provided hilarious commentary tracks) I held out hope that one day the show would be revived in some fashion, perhaps hitting the live college circuit. I was thrilled to discover that Mike, Bill and Kevin would once again be back in front of the cameras (or at least in the bottom right corner of your screen) doing what they do best, shredding the worst B-movie drek to crawl from Hollywood. Of the four DVD's the Film Crew have released The Giant Of Marathon is by far the best. Oh...by the best I of course mean the WORST, The film itself could be described as a bunch of lunkheads stumbling around ancient Greece for 90 minutes. You could easily compare it to the very best episodes of Mystery Science Theater 3000 (not an unfair comparison given the pedigree here). While it's true you no longer have those sillouhettes to keep you company throughout these cinamatic travesties, the warped sense of humor is still there. I've even grown fond of the wraparound host segments now that the "characters" of Mike, Bill and Kevin have been established over the four Film Crew DVD's. I hope they can continue to make these as each DVD is certainly worthy of several viewings. I've bought 'em all and I'll line up for the next one.

Now the question remains: What's Joel doing these days?

Mike says:
Joel is doing "Cinematic Titanic" (http://www.cinematictitanic.com/) with Trace Beaulieu, Frank Conniff, J. Elvis Weinstein (the original Tom Servo), and Mary Jo Pehl. They are currently selling 4 new DVDs on their Web Site with a fifth due on 11/20/08. I haven't seen any of them, but Trace Beaulieu has always been my all-time favorite MST3K cast member. Like "The Film Crew," the Joel version also kept the bots on Earth, on the sofa.
