From Amazon.co.uk

Any four episodes of The Simpsons chosen at random would make perfectly acceptable entertainment, but The Simpsons’ Film Festival is a particularly happy selection. One of the show’s many delights has always been its unending stream of movie parodies, and here we have four episodes devoted to just that. In "Beyond Blunderdome", Mel Gibson (playing himself) sends up his tough-guy persona when he hires Homer to produce his latest movie. Then in "A Star is Burns" Springfield hosts its own film festival (with acerbic guest critic Jay Sherman in attendance). The competition boils down to Barney’s haunting cinema verité short about the horrors of alcohol or Mr Burns’ grandiose vanity project (though Homer prefers Hans Moleman being hit by a football). "22 Short Films About Springfield" is a series of parodies within a parody featuring Springfield’s secondary characters, including Milhouse’s dad and Chief Wiggum in a glorious Pulp Fiction sequence. Finally, the show’s own internal parody cartoon duo hit the big screen in "The Itchy and Scratchy Movie", while Bart and Homer lock horns about going to see it. They sell Soylent Green in the future cinema foyer; and Homer loves it, of course.

On the DVD: just four episodes is hardly stunning value for money, but it’s perhaps quality not quantity that counts here. Annoyingly there is no "Play All" facility, a serious let down in all the Simpsons DVD releases (Futurama had the same problem, too). The only extra feature of any note is a three-minute montage of Troy McClure’s finest moments. Sound is unexceptional Dolby Stereo and the picture is standard 4:3 ratio. --Mark Walker

Format: VHS Tape
This video is unbelievably funny with a brilliant mix of episodes.
In 'Beyond Blunderdome' Mel Gibson stars as himself and asks Homer to co-produce his film after Homer gives it a bad review. The problem is, I don't think 'Mr Smith goes to Washington' should be a bloody action picture... 10/10
In 'Itchy and Scatchy: the Movie' Homer forbids Bart to see the new Itchy and Scratchy film after Bart fails to watch Maggie. 9/10
In '22 Short Films about Springfield' the episode is made up of bits of other episodes put together with clever links to each other. 10/10
In 'A Star is Burns' Springfield hosts a film festival with the help of critic Jay Sherman (Jon Lovitz). Homer is on the board of judges, and he has to decide who wins between Barney Gumble's film and Mr Burns's. 9/10

Format: VHS Tape
This video deserves its five stars as there are four classic episodes.
Beyond blunerdome is when homer is overheard by mel gibson shouting about how bad his film is, so gibson recruits homer as a film consultant. Only for homer to make the film into a violent action movie.
Itchy and scratch: the movie, my favourite of the four sees homer punish bart serioulsy for putting maggies life in danger.
22 short films about springfield shows us what really goes on in the town of the simpsons
A star is burns has a fummy bit with 'the eternal struggle', where homer battles with his belt buckle.
These four great episodes make this the best video so far.

Format: DVD
Four Simpsons episodes and a short feature on Troy Mclure (which is a bit of a waste of time). The four episodes are all pretty funny, but the best is A Star is Burns, where the residents of Springfield hold a film festival and submit their own movies. Barney Gumble's meditation on his life as an alcoholic is a masterpiece, but Burns has ideas of upstaging it. Homer's choice, of a man being hit by a football, is an outside contender. The other three episodes - Beyond Blunderdome, Itchy and Scratchy the Movie and 22 Short Films About Springfield - all have their moments, although the first has too much Mel Gibson. Short cameos work best, Mel. Overall, a good compilation, with many references for film buffs.

Format: DVD
WOW!this is a great dvd,has 4 fantastic episodes and a Troy Mclour finest moments featurette.
these are the episodes:
"Beyond Blunderdome"(season 11)original airdate: 26/9/99
When Homer and Marge attend a test screening of Mel Gibson's remake of Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, Homer gives the film a mercilessly rough critique. Rather than be angered by Homer's remarks, Gibson decides to hire him as a consultant on the script rewrites. Together Mel and Homer turn the movie into a bloody action flick. The film studio is so disgusted by the new cut that they attempt to block its distribution. Homer and Mel steal the only print of the film and escape the studio lot with the executives pursuing them. Commandeering the old Mad Max car from the Hollywood Auto Museum, the Simpsons and the movie star careen through the streets, causing all sorts of destruction. Can they escape with the print intact? Does Mr. Smith ever get to go to Washington? Why doesn't Mel Gibson have an accent anymore?
Guest Star: Mel Gibson as himself

"Itchy and Scratchy:The Movie" (season 4)
oringinal airdate:3/11/92

Every kid in the world waits with bated breath for the Itchy & Scratchy movie, but Bart is the only one who's not allowed to see it. Marge and Homer ground Bart for his bad behavior, making him miss the most important movie of his life. In a vision of the future in which his son becomes a Supreme Court Justice, Homer imagines seeing a revival of the movie with Bart.

"22 short films about Springfield" (seaon 7)
original airdate:14/4/96

In this breakneck tour through a day in the life of Springfield, we learn that a lot goes on in a little town in some state, somewhere in America. Apu takes the day off from the Kwik-E-Mart and has a kwik-e-romance.
