Mystery Science Theater 3000 Revival Renewed for Season 2 at Netflix

Mystery Science Theater 3000 Revival Renewed for Season 2 at Netflix
Mystery Science Theater 3000 acolytes had reason to be extra grateful this Thanksgiving: Netflix on Thursday renewed the rebooted revived cult fave for a second season (or 12th season, if you’re thinking cumulatively).

The streamer made the announcement (which you can watch above) at the conclusion of the annual holiday marathon on YouTube. While there’s no specific timetable for the release of the new episodes, Netflix teased that the show — featuring hosts Joel Hodgson, Jonah Ray and Felicia Day — would return “in the not-too-distant-future.”

The inaugural season of Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Return launched last spring, nearly

‘Godless’: Jeff Daniels Weighs in on His Infamous Line, ’This Ain’t My Death’

‘Godless’: Jeff Daniels Weighs in on His Infamous Line, ’This Ain’t My Death’
[Editor’s Note: The following contains spoilers from “Godless.”]

The Old West was a lawless place, where nothing was certain except for dust and hardship. On Netflix’s limited series “Godless,” outlaw Frank Griffin was certain about one thing though: how he wasn’t going to die.

“This ain’t my death,” he says over and over again like a mantra. Whether he has a noose around his neck or a shotgun pointed at his heart, he holds onto that unshakeable belief. “This ain’t my death. I’ve seen my death; this ain’t it.”

Jeff Daniels, who portrays Frank Griffin, spoke to IndieWire about that infamous line. “If it were a song, it’d be a good hook,” he said. “You preface that with, ‘Is this it? No, it’s not it. This ain’t my death. I just checked. Didn’t get the feeling that this was it.’ And that’s kind of all he goes on.

Glow's Betty Gilpin Prepares For Wrestling Dramedy's Season 2: 'I Feel Like My Soul Was in a Five-Car Pileup'
The thing about being one of the leads in a 1980s-set dramedy about lady wrestlers is, your look is still stuck in the Reagan era even after the cameras stop rolling for the day.

“I’m looking at my gel French manicure now, and that, combined with my spray tan, every public place I walk into, I want to clink a glass, like, ‘Ding, ding, ding’ and announce that this is for a character and not from my personal choice,” Glow‘s Betty Gilpin says, chuckling.

Mystery Science Theater 3000: Volume Xxxix Review

Brad Cook reviews Mystery Science Theater 3000 Volume Xxxix…

MST3K Volume Xxxix is a bittersweet release because it marks the end of an era. Yes, this is Shout! Factory’s final new volume of Mystery Science Theater 3000 episodes. (They’ll keep re-releasing the old Rhino sets, however.) They say on their site that it’s the “almost certainly, probably definitely, maybe unquestionably final collection of never-before-released episodes,” so maybe there’s still some hope of more volumes in the series. Maybe?

Fittingly, this collection includes the show’s final episode, which skewers the 1968 spy film Diabolik, which was produced by Dino de Laurentiis. That one probably would have been worthy of a retrospective featurette, but the subject was understandably pushed aside in favor of Showdown in Eden Prairie: Their Final Experiment (10 minutes), which looks back on the making of the final episode.

The series finale sees Mike and the

Film Review: ‘Thor: Ragnarok’

Film Review: ‘Thor: Ragnarok’
Hey, comicbook fans, it’s another Thor movie, and that can only mean one thing: It’s almost time for another Avengers movie! While you wait, Disney and Marvel Studios hope to loot another half-billion dollars or so from the world’s wallets with this outlandish amuse bouche featuring the God of Thunder and his Abs of Steel, with yet another confusing plot crudely bastardized from Norse mythology in which most of the action takes place on a parallel world you care nothing about.

Like Thor’s two previous solo outings (definite low points in the Marvel oeuvre), this one is pretty much skippable, although it’s not without its pleasures — most notably, the fact that Thor’s not so solo this time around, with cameos/co-starring opportunities for the Hulk, Doctor Strange and a few leftover bits of Tony Stark’s wardrobe (including a retro Duran Duran T-shirt that’s good for a laugh).

Happy Death Day – Review

There are certain stereotypes and tropes that have existed in the horror genre for decades. In the 80s, the slasher genre made popular the idea of a masked killer stalking a group of teenagers. As often was the case, a “final girl” was left as the killer’s last victim, being forced to do battle and reveal to the audience who has been picking off her friends one by one.

Sure, it’s formulaic, but the concept spawned hundreds of films and continues to inspire modern filmmakers to put their own spin on the sub-genre. Powerhouse production company Blumhouse has hired Christopher Landon (Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones) to breathe life into their own clever take on the slasher film with Happy Death Day. Instead of a group of kids each facing their individual demise, you have one girl standing in the place of them all. How, do you ask?

‘Patton Oswalt: Annihilation’: Trailer For New Stand-Up Special Brings Humor With Hope — Watch
Patton Oswalt is coping with a tumultuous year the only way he knows how — through humor. His new hour-long comedy special, “Patton Oswalt: Annihilation,” is set to debut on Netflix October 17. The Emmy-winning comedian will be talking about overcoming grief during what he described, in a March Facebook post, as “easily the most horrific 12 months I’ve had to wade through in my 48 years on the planet.”

According to Entertainment Weekly, the special was filmed at Chicago’s Athenaeum Theatre and will address the devastating loss of his wife, Michelle McNamara, who died suddenly last April. Enjoying Oswalt’s award-winning 2016 special “Talking For Clapping” wasn’t easy for fans of the comedian, considering the news of his wife’s passing hit the day before its release. But a year later, fans can expect closure, hope, and many, many jokes about the president.

Decades-lost Ed Wood film screened at Fantastic Fest

  • JoBlo
As a noted enthusiastic fan of bad movies, I of course adore Ed Wood films. They're bad in all the ways bad movies should be: bad acting, inexplicable story choices, shoddy sets and effects...the whole nine yards. While Wood is not the worst director ever (not even of his time period, as anyone who ever watched Mystery Science Theater 3000 can attest to), but there's definitely charm to his films. Like The...

Drive-In Dust Offs: The Brain That Wouldn’T Die (1962)

  • DailyDead
Filmed in 1959 but not released until Aip picked it up in ’62, The Brain That Wouldn’t Die is a weird little treasure that deserved to be saved from the wreckage. It surpasses all yardsticks of measurement such as taste or talent, and instead floats to the surface on sheer strangeness and a stringent commitment to sleaze. Man cannot live on refinement alone.

Released in May after Aip purchased it and thrown to the wolves on a double feature with Invasion of the Star Creatures, The Brain That Wouldn’t Die (Aka The Head That Wouldn’t Die) came and went like the patrons at a Dusk to Dawn bill by the local drive-in. Mass production on the public domain line ensured faded memories and dimmed shocks until Mystery Science Theater 3000 gave it new life. Regardless of how you’ve come to it, Brain still retains the title of best
