Hey all you MST3K fans...Cinematic Titanic is available to watch for free on Hulu. http://www.hulu.com/cinematic-titanic


Cinematic Titanic is a project by Mystery Science Theater 3000 (MST3K) creator and original host, Joel Hodgson. The project involves "riffing" B-movies, in a manner similar to that of MST3K. Joining Hodgson are many of the original MST3K cast, as well as some cast members who joined later in the show's run. These include Trace Beaulieu (Dr. Forrester/original Crow), J. Elvis Weinstein (Dr. Laurence Erhardt/original Servo - from season 1 MST3K), Frank Conniff (TV's Frank) and Mary Jo Pehl (Pearl).

Like Mystery Science Theater 3000, the series uses black silhouettes of the riffers placed over the films, but in the case of Cinematic Titanic they sit on both sides of the screen rather than just on the lower right. Visual gags are frequent (such as Beaulieu's use of a cherry picker in The Oozing Skull), and there are two or three host segments per episode, all performed in silhouette.


There is also a show page for RiffTrax (though the content is vastly smaller than what they have available for sale, but it's a good sampling). RiffTrax are downloadable audio commentaries featuring comedians Michael J. Nelson, Kevin Murphy (long time Servo) and Bill Corbett (second Crow) heckling (or riffing) films in the style of Mystery Science Theater 3000.

Notable films are Night of the Living Dead, Reefer Madness, House on Haunted Hill, and Plan 9 From Outer Space.

They also have a separate page for their shorts.

It's also worth noting that they have a few episodes of Film Crew on there too. Same lineup as RiffTrax.

Check them out if you get a chance! They're all free!

Just some more stuff though to piss your wife off. Cinematic Titanic/RiffTrax 3798349058

It's considerably more than 14. There's 14 discs, 6 have one DVD-like episodes, the other 8 have about 6 each (there's some CT and RT mixed in there). They should be there tomorrow, so you get a stay of execution until then!

I've lost track of how many times I've watched this show over. I RAPED the netflix dvd service. I'm putting this in my hulu stash for later.

Since having basked in the glory of having the entire series of MST, I have finally moved on to acquiring all RiffTrax shorts, movies, and live events. (Shorts and live events are the easiest to find...probably going to have to buy the majority of the movies.) The shorts are friggin hilarious. (Hulu still has some that are free to view at the shorts link above)

Hulu has also added one of it's live events (Reefer Madness). http://www.hulu.com/rifftrax-features

I am in riff heaven at the moment.

If you like what you see, go toss these guys a few bucks, or buy something.

http://www.rifftrax.com/

I also highly recommend checking out one of their live telesync events. The tickets cost more than a regular movie ($12.50), and these showings are one night only at select theaters (though I was pleasantly surprised at the amount of locations). It is well worth every penny though. We saw the live riff of Manos (I actually liked it better than the MST version) and Birdemic on Halloween. From what I've heard, there will be an encore showing of either Birdemic or Plan 9 From Outer Space in January...but no idea when the next new live event is (they update the events ahead of time on their site). Just tons of fun though, and surprisingly some of the better theater turnouts I've been to in a long time. Nerds unite!

I know...I felt so dirty. But I haven't laughed my ass off so much in a long time. It was close though...but their live events are just beyond hilarious.

I'm going to have to look around for one of these live shows. That would be so cool and different to do. I could probably get a few people to go and have a blast. Thanks for the heads up!

No problem...I'll make sure to post it up here next time I see one. I'm an asshole for forgetting to before. Check out the one they have on Hulu though in the meantime.

From their FB page, they responded to someone's question about a Live Riff in January...they are showing encore presentations of Plan 9 AND Manos in January. Not sure of the dates yet. No new ones till summer though.
