Last weekend, the Cinematic Titanic crew performed a live show at the Dallas Film Festival, also signing autographs and answering questions and doing the usual fanboy placation. Kevin Murphy was supposed to join them for the MST3K 20th Anniversary panel, but he was sick and had to cancel. Thankfully, a handful of reports and interviews have cropped up, so here’s what I’ve been able to find.
First of all, let’s get some warm-up time with the CT crew, with this excellent pre-Film Fest interview at Kulturblog, featuring a misplaced Kevin. A lot of good lines in this one, with Kevin, Trace, and Josh really cracking me up. On a slightly more-related note, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram also did a short interview with Joel.
Now, for some actual reports. Pegasus News has a real nice recap of the festivities, including a few choice answers from the Q&A and from the riffing. Oh, by the way, they riffed Roger Corman’s The Wasp Woman, so expect to see that as a future release. Comic book artist Benjamin Hall also blogged about the event, and took the picture you see at the top of this post. Satellite News has another fan’s account. And finally, Mary Jo offers her own take on their outing.
So, all in all, sounds like another typically amazing public appearance for the former cast of MST3K. Whether Rifftrax or Cinematic Titanic, it seems that it’s hard not to have a great time at a live show. Lastly, the quote of the evening belongs to Trace, in my opinion:
TV is dead. The internet is the future. Join us.
Couldn’t have said it better myself.
