Hercules, Samson and Ulysses / The Slave / Sandokan the Great

Joey, do you like movies about gladiators?


Rod Lott
Swords and sandals: Once a matinee mainstay, the adventure subgenre is now all but extinct, kept alive by the occasional Conan movie or Titans clash. DVD helps, too, such as three new offerings from Warner Archive.

Mystery Science Theater 3000: Volume XXIV

You could try to kill it with a forklift, but why?

Television series

Rod Lott
XXIV, VXI, XXX, IV, X — hell, it's all Greek Roman to me. All I know for sure is that each and every box set that has been or will be released of Mystery Science Theater 3000 is worth owning. Since the new Volume XXIV falls into that category, it, too, qualifies.

Samson & Delilah

Down and out in Down Under.


Rod Lott
Samson & Delilah portrays a community so minute, so insular and so far removed from ours, it may as well be science fiction. Neither a documentary nor a remake of Cecil B. DeMille’s 1949 biblical epic, this Cannes Film Festival honoree depicts the dull, dreary life among dwellers of the Central Australian desert.
