Misfits & Monsters

A trailer was released recently for the debut season of Misfits & Monsters, a new horror-comedy anthology series coming to truTV.

The show comes from Bobcat Goldthwait, who’s best known as the stand-up comedian and actor who appeared in the Police Academy movies, Scrooged, and Shakes the Clown, and more recently as the filmmaker behind World’s Greatest Dad, God Bless America, and Willow Creek.

The trailer is kind of a trailer/featurette hybrid, with peeks at the show paired with Goldthwait talking about it. You can read more about Misfits & Monsters and check out the trailer along with some bonus videos below.

Walt Disney Home Entertainment
Release Date: Oct. 29, 2013

It’s time to scare it up, my fellow geeks! Monsters University sees its home release, and surprisingly, the Blu-ray edition of Pixar’s latest feature is wicked good. Explore Monsters University with me, shall we?

James P. Sullivan (John Goodman) and Mike Wazowski (Billy Crystal) may have given the impression they were always best buddies in Monsters, Inc., but Monsters University proves just the opposite. Travel back in time with Sulley and Mikey to their young adulthood, when Sulley’s pomposity and Mike’s unabashed idealism contrasted with their older personalities. Mike craves to scare for a living, despite his less-than-menacing appearance, and must prove to naysayers that he belongs at the Scare School. He works ceaselessly to understand ways to haunt and chill. Sulley, on the other hand, thinks his family name and reputation will lead him on a road to success, but his egotism impairs his image and potential. The two must collaborate with the non-impressive Oozma Kappa fraternity to save their spots in the Scare School.

DVD Review: The Kids In The Hall – Death Comes To Town

Death Comes to TownThe Kids in the Hall
Death Comes to Town
DVD
Directed by Kelly Makin
Starring Dave Foley, Bruce McCulloch, Kevin McDonald, Mark McKinney, and Scott Thompson
A&E Entertainment
Release Date: May 24, 2011

I grew up watching The Kids in the Hall, a half-hour-long sketch comedy series from Canada starring a popular comedy troupe whose core cast of five founding members – Scott Thompson, Dave Foley, Mark McKinney, Bruce McCulloch, and Kevin McDonald – has never changed in their existence. It remains one of the funniest television shows in the histories of both television and things that are funny. The Kids came into my life at a time when I had a very conventional view of what comedy was. Then again I must have been all of ten years old when I first saw The Kids in the Hall arriving on American shores and being resigned to the netherworld of late Friday nights on HBO in the early 1990s. It didn’t have a fraction of the cultural impact of the Beatles coming to the U.S. to play on The Ed Sullivan Show, but it meant a hell of a lot more important to me. The Kids’ unorthodox (to me at least) amalgamation of off-kilter and experimental humor with more broader comedy to appeal to those with a kindergarten student’s comedic sensibility, but it was all done the Kids’ way so that even it when it seemed like they were playing it safe their loyal fans never assumed they were selling out.

Scary Smash

Everyone already adores geek god Joss Whedon for the many treasures he has bestowed upon us, so why not branch out to as many forms of entertainment as humanly possible?

Whedon recently starred as the action hero lead in a short film titled Scary Smash, written by 5-year-old Brett Baligad. The short is part of something called Written by a Kid, where little ones tell their stories as we watch their young visions realized by real directors, actors, and so on.

You can check out Scary Smash (as well as a couple fun behind-the-scenes videos) below!

Pre-Order Now: Season 1 Of Animated Series ‘Dan Vs.’

Dan Vs.

An animated series that some of you may be familiar with and others not at all familiar with, Dan Vs. is finally making its way to home video.

The show, which comes from the same animation studio behind episodes of Family Guy, The Simpsons, Beavis and Butt-Head, and King of the Hill, airs on Discovery and Hasbro’s The Hub network, but, if you’re like myself, is also a show you’ve never heard of—to the point of it already getting through a significant chunk of its second season unnoticed—on a channel you’ve never heard of. One of the primary reasons for this is because it used to be the Discovery Kids channel, and most of its content is aimed at a much younger audience. Upon further inspection, however, the channel does air re-runs of ALF, so we should all give it a peek on that basis alone.

For those of you who are aware of and watch Dan Vs., you’ve likely been wondering just when the first season of the show would be released on DVD. The answer is later this summer, on July 17th, and you can pre-order it right now.

Disney’s ‘Prep & Landing’ To Return With ‘Operation: Secret Santa’
space

prep & landingLast year, Disney premiered Prep & Landing, a half-hour television special about an elite unit of Santa’s Elves known as Prep & Landing.

Walt Disney Animation Studios is planning to bring the unit back in a 7-minute animated short called Prep & Landing: Operation: Secret Santa, with Betty White as the voice of Mrs. Claus.

Prep & Landing: Operation: Secret Santa will air on Tuesday, December 7, 2010 (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET) during the holiday classic A Charlie Brown Christmas. Both programs will repeat on Thursday, December 16 from 8:00-9:00 p.m., ET.

The original Prep & Landing was the first television special produced by Walt Disney Animation Studios and premiered last December.

Aside from being from Disney, which is enough right there to get me to check it out, the original Christmas special also had Dave Foley as the voice of Wayne, one of the elite elves, and Foley is back for this new adventure! I totally loved the first Prep & Landing and was hoping by now it would be out on DVD, as I think it’s a great holiday story that I’d love to see every year. I actually still have it saved on my DVR (luckily!), and have watched it a few times already, so I’m really looking forward to this follow-up. I only wish it was longer than just 7 minutes.

Movie Review: ‘The Strip’

The Movie God   |  @   |

The StripThe Strip
Directed by: Jameel Khan
Starring Dave Foley, Jenny Wade, Rodney Scott, Billy Aaron Brown, Federico Dordei, Cory Christmas, Noureen DeWulf, Chelcie Ross
Bata Films
Rated PG-13
Release Date: December 4, 2009 (limited)

The Strip is a new independent film from Bata Films that tells the story of a group of small-town retail store workers trying to find themselves. It’s a story that we’ve seen before, but that works on many different levels, as witnessed in movies like Clerks, The 40-Year-Old Virgin, and Waiting. What differentiates it from movies like that is its open subtlety. The movie doesn’t rush anywhere or get too out of hand, and though hilarious in the movies mentioned, it avoids the constant swearing and adult themes as much as possible in an attempt to thrive on being what it is: just a simple tale of a few lives looking to rediscover their true paths.

The Strip refers to a strip mall where a little store called Electri-City is located. It’s a blatant Radio Shack ripoff, and sells many generic brand products that no one has ever heard of, but because people love cheap crap, they do have customers…sometimes. This branch is run by the manager, Glenn (Dave Foley). He obviously has the passion and the drive, but you can tell he’s in a bit of a mid-life crisis, though he’d never admit it. He makes an effort in raising sales numbers by trying trust exercises with his team, such as all holding hands and trying to untie themselves. Unfortunately, these exercises aren’t completely successful due to the fact that his staff is a grab bag of varying personalities that don’t exactly mesh together well.
