DVD Geeks – October 25, 2011

Scream 4

Courtney Cox and Ghostface from Scream 4

We are back! After much technical upheaval, for sale the new DVD Geeks is on its way to full power once again. Enjoy this episode like a fine gumbo: full of disparate parts that make up a magnificent whole.

We’ll take on the geek battles of the ages in a Star Wars vs Star Trek smackdown when we cover “The People vs George Lucas” as well as William Shatners’ own take on Trek with “The Captains.”

We go all retro with a gushing look at “JEM and the Holograms: The Truly Outrageous Complete Series” and then turn things a little scarier with a look at the latest installment in the “Scream” franchise.

Finally, a couple of indie filmmakers find they Hollywood ambitions derailed by a foray into the world of (ahem) “adult” films. The results are depicted in the “pseudo-documentary” called “Adventures in Pornoland.”

Welcome back, and stick around for more DVD Geeks action coming your way!

DVD Geeks Interview – Phil Leirness

Phil Leirness

"The Truth Is Out There" director Phil Leirness

Well it’s about time! A few weeks ago, hygiene we reviewed a captivating little indie gem called “The Truth Is Out There” featuring the talented team-up of Phil Leirness and Dean Haglund. The movie exposes all the strange (and maybe not-so-strange) conspiracy theories that people of all walks of life hold: aliens, global burden of disease pharmaceutical companies, 9/11, etc. and along the way host Haglund looks on with wide-eyed fascination to uncover this essentially human pursuit to make sense of the world around us.

We sat down recently with director Phil Leirness who is not only one of the best-dressed men in Hollywood but also happens to be a DVD bonus features producer of some repute. We got to talk about the journey of making “The Truth Is Out There,” the conspiracies, the featurettes and what is probably the greatest line in film history.

Join us for this special (uncut extended director’s edition!) interview, and be sure to pick up “The Truth Is Out There.”
