The Reel Projections podcast returns with an interview with Mike Nelson. Fans of bad movies or great TV shows remember Nelson as the former head-writer and star of the Comedy Central/Sci-Fi Channel hit Mystery Science Theater 3000. Nelson is still busy trashing flicks with Rifftrax, a provider of audio commentary tracks for movies both old and new. Joined by MST3K vets Kevin Murphy and Bill Corbett (among others), Rifftrax is for anyone who ever dreamed of seeing the MST3K crew take on current releases. (I've included some YouTube Rifftrax's clips for The Dark Knight, Jaws, Star Wars and a few others after the break below.) You can also find Rifftrax online, and some of the programs have been released as DVD's now for sale. All come highly recommended.

Speaking of bad movies, this Reel Projections podcast is also loaded with details on the new Will Ferrell comedy Land of the Lost. Host Joe, Joran and Producer Stephen have all seen the movie, and they break it down on the podcast. A word of warning: MAJOR SPOILERS ahead, so if you plan to see the movie, read Joe Bardi's non-spoiler review of Land of The Lost now and listen to the podcast after you've seen the movie.
