For those of us who are die-hard MST3K addicts, we now have "The Film Crew," with Mike Nelson, Kevin Murphy and Bill Corbett. Alas, no Crow or Tom Servo on screen. However, the riffs for this movie are just as good as anything from MST3K. In my opinion, the guys always did their best on old sci-fi "B" movies from the 1950's. This one gives them lots to work with. A very young Peter Graves is the only star, along with aliens, who have ping-pong eyeballs. Although the Rifftrax are equal to anything from MST3K, I miss the Bots doing their Commercial Break skits. The guys are on screen with one "Lunch Break," and the ever funny and goofy Kevin Murphy is the focal point. He tries to point out body parts that were not used in the movie for the aliens, instead of oversized eyeballs. I like seeing the guys interact! I hope the guys make more of these. They're much better than the "Rifftraxx" movies.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

After a shakedown cruise with "Hollywood After Dark," The Film Crew offers "Killers From Space," a gloriously-bad B-movie from the 1950s that (as the guys point out) offers few killers and little space. The movie is more of the type that would have been riffed on Mystery Science Theater 3000, and the jokes I think are better than they were in "Hollywood After Dark." The Peter Graves bits alone are fantastic. The only weak spot (as in the first volume) is the "Lunch Break" segment. Maybe I'm too used to seeing Tom Servo and Crow, but these just aren't funny to me. Fortunately, it's not long before they're back riffing on the movie. I've enjoyed the first two DVDs in this series and hope Mike, Bill and Kevin keep it going.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
