Weekend Internets: John Philip Law Edition

Well, now’s as good a time as any to keep tabs on what the internet’s saying about MST3K and its offspring. I’ll probably start making these posts more often, whenever I have a small surplus of links building up. So, onward.

[+] Dude, the drugs on this planet are, like… whoa…
Gawker’s new, shamefully enjoyable sci-fi blog, io9, recently highlighted the film Phantom Planet. There’s a couple of videos and, naturally, an MST mention.

[+] Super-Con article on MetroActive
California site MetroActive has a good article up on the Cinematic Titanic crew’s appearance at Super-Con, this weekend. It’s a surprisingly beefy article, even touching on Frank’s Cartoon Dump project.

[+] Movie reviews: a big one and a small one
With the rerelease of MST3K: The Movie on DVD comes a batch of new DVD reviews. OhmyNews International wrote a lengthy review, while CanMag posted a short one. Both reviews are typical: The Movie is good, though not the series’ high point; and the DVD is anemic, but welcome.

[+] It’s a John Philip Lawlapalooza!
This morning, I stumbled across a rather impressive video of an intro to what is apparently a documentary about the recently deceased John Philip Law, titled The Swinging Lust World of John Philip Law. I’ve embedded it after the break, along with even more John Philip Law than you can shake a stick at. Did you know he was in a movie called “Doctor Justice”? Oh hell yeah.

More from the documentary, focusing on Diabolik:

Long trailer for his 1974 classic The Golden Voyage of Sinbad, with an oddly-placed Tom Baker and the amazing Caroline Munro:

Another Sinbad-related video. Just watch:

A slightly NSFW clip from the amazing Barbarella:

Up against Lee Van Cleef in Death Rides a Horse:

And finally, the video for the Beastie Boys’ “Body Movin'”… Oh, it’s related:

  1. Useless trivia: That Sinbad movie was how Tom Baker got the Doctor Who role. The producers happened to see the film and see him work with special effects mosters and all, and called him in to audition.
