There were no new genre films in theaters this weekend, but there was one old one in a shiny new, 3D coat: The Lion King 3D, which just so happened to top this week's box-office. With a prescience befitting a Cinefantastique editor, Steve Biodrowski recognized the film for the hit it was going to be, and attended a screening. In this episode of the Spotlight, he gives his impression of the newly dimensional musical fantasy, after which Dan Persons joins in for a discussion of MST3K vs. Gamera, the new home video box set that collects all of Mystery Science Theatre's episodes devoted to Japan's beloved, mammoth flying turtle.
Also in this episode: discussions of Harlan Ellison's In Time lawsuit and of the impending Hannibal Lecter TV series.
Plus: Gamera is friend to all children!
