One of Leonard Nimoy's Lesser known works. Although "Leonard Nimoy Demonstrates the Magnavision Videodisc Player" wasn't previously on my to-see list, this reviewer has certainly changed my mind! [Note: Both ludicrous and irrelevant]

I donno, Leonard Maltin gives it only 1 1/2 stars.

I love Brent Jones' review of the film: "Nimoy pursues the evil lord Buster Betamax across the globe in one of the bloodiest yet truly gratifying media player demonstrations ever." I can only dream of writing stuff this funny.

Leonard Maltin gave the blockbuster spectacular Attack of the Killer Tomatoes only one and a half stars too when it plainly deserves at least one and three quarters. He can kiss my bohiney.

zachsmind, if you enjoy funny reviews, don't forget Family Circus books.

What the heck is that thing doing in the IMDB? I guess they really are trying for completeness now.

I think my favorite part is:

"If you like this title, we also recommend...
Laserdisc: How it Works (1980) (V)"

Btw, I was joking.
Well, it being included in imdb makes sense. Sure it's called internet movie database, but, they do have all the sitcoms and straight-to-video releases and shows and such. So, basically all the works the person has done should be included, like Jeremy Iron's doing a BBC voice. heh.

aaron, i don't know if you clicked on the miscellaneous link on the IMDB page, but there are some photos of Nimoy promoting the item - but unfortunately no movie clips...

Perhaps that would make for a good geek game. One person mentions a celebrity and the other person has to name the piece of technology that they promoted. Alan Alda? George Plimpton? Carson Daly? Um, I guess limit that to older ads...

At the library where I used to work there was a book of Leonard Nimoy poetry. They were like:
I am
I am ready
I am ready to love
I am ready to love and be loved.

All you need to do is become a member, and you too can submit a work for inclusion.

The fact that the administrators cashed in with Amazon kinda took all the fun out of being a contributor, though.

I don't even know who or what a Carson Daly is, let alone what it might be promoting, so no reason to strike that name from the list...

Trust us, Kindall, there's plenty of reason. ;)

And check out Spock with the moustache! Sexy M.F. indeed!
