Insert RiffTrax/Cinematic Titanic Plug Here

It’s been far too long since I plugged RiffTrax or Cinematic Titanic here, so here’s an article on RiffTrax from the Boise Weekly encouraging its readers to “take the men behind MST3K home.”

Elsewhere, has an interview with RiffTrax frontman Mike Nelson and a bonus feature article as well, and DVDTalk has a review of a “RiffTrax Live” event from December 2009.

And just to be fair, I must also provide equal pluggage for the other MST3K spinoff Cinematic Titanic — equally as entertaining as RiffTrax and also hosted by former “Mystie” alums.

DVDTalk also has a review of Cinematic Titanic’s live show and DVD release for “East Meets Watts,” a 1974 martial arts mess also reviewed by TVSquad.

Additionally, Cinematic Titanic creator Joel Hodgson has a couple recent interviews with and

My previous article details the history of Cinematic Titanic as well, but you don’t have to take my word for it — visit their official site:, and they have an official YouTube channel too.

Cinematic Titanic is also performing live at SF Sketchfest on February 2nd (previously reported here), and has four other tour dates currently scheduled through April 2010.

And I also believe MST3K fans would donate their organs to see a reunion, either by way of joint commentary projects or a shared live event.
