Movie Sign! Stars of Mystery Science Theater Are Back to Make Fun of Animals

I don’t think Mike Nelson, Kevin Murphy, and Bill Corbett can call themselves Mystery Science Theater guys anymore for legal reasons, but that’s not stopping me. These days they tend to go by a their more recent and entirely laudable efforts as the Rifftrax guys. But if they’re going to be riffing on nature videos for National Geographic, I hold out hope that there will be at least one huge slam on anteaters out of nowhere.

Things We Saw Today: DC’s Newly Gay Character Looks Like Someone We’ve Met Before

As part of DC Comics‘ New 52, one character was rumored to be rebooted as an openly gay character, but who was it going to be? Well, on the heels of Marvel‘s gay wedding, we now know that it will be the Green Lantern himself, Alan Scott, exiting the closet, and making the DC universe more diverse and inclusive!

1950s Educational Film Explains: Slouching Is For Terrible People [Video]

Ah, the vintage educational film. Enlightening, casually hyperbolic, ripe for MST3K commentary. Unfortunately, after a quick search, I couldn’t find this 1953 short by the Centron Corporation, Your Health: Posture on RiffTrax, but consider this an opportunity to provide your own witty banter! Here is what you’ll learn today, fellow computer users: slouching is the reason no one talks to you at parties, even if you’re a perfectly attractive and friendly person, and the key to good posture is exercise, rest, and good shoes.

We Have Done the Impossible and That Makes Us Mighty

RiffTrax Celebrates Five Years of Not Letting Any Movie Take Itself Seriously [Video]

When three of the guys from Mystery Science Theater 3000 realized five years ago that their presence was still required for the mockery of films of every genre, the world changed for the better because they created RiffTrax. Now, as non-robots, Michael J. Nelson, Kevin Murphy, and Bill Corbett (as well as a slew of other guests that have included the likes of “Weird” Al Yankovic and Neil Patrick Harris) celebrate five successful years that have brought us delightful commentary for today’s box office hits (and misses). Because someone had to give Twilight the MST3K treatment. (And The Room, for that matter.) We’re so happy it’s these guys.
