Title: I just finished watching..........................
Post by: dangfish on April 10, 2009, 01:24:45 PM
...............okay,  I know there are individual boards for each and every Rifftrax release, so this thread might seem redundant to some. However, those boards seem to pretty much dry up after the trax is more than two weeks old. I thought a thread like this might see more action.


I'll get the ball rolling..........  Recently watched Hulk - Final Round for the third time.  The first time I wasn't crazy about it, the second time I loved it, and this time I was somewhere in the middle. Many funny riffs but also some scenes where the riffs just kind of lie there. This trax had the short length and the wonderful source material going for it. Too bad they're not likely to do more 70's TV show cheese like this, due to the extra effort involved in getting the DVDs. It's nice to have a rifftrax in my collection that isn't as short as the shorts and isn't a two hour or more commitment like the other feature trax.

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban night before last.  Fun movie, good riffing.  Love the "Hermione casts the 'give Ron a boner' spell" line.

Tonight I think I'll crack out the Bourne Identity - I've not seen that one in quite a while and my Friday night movie stack is dried up.

I really enjoyed the Bourne Identity trax. Square headed Matt Damon proved to be one of those actors tailor made for riffing abuse.  However, so many others have used this as an example of  a weak trax that I'm actually scared to re-watch it for fear my opinion of it may change!

It's nice to know I'm not the only one who liked this trax.  I'll stop being scared and rewatch soon to see if it holds up.  I don't remember where exactly (some of them might've been on the mst discussion board) but I just remember reading quite a few posts where people referred to this as their least favorite trax and it actually kept me away from it for awhile. Glad I eventually caught up with it.

I finally delved into the Legend re-do's, although I never saw the solo Mike versions so they are not  do-overs for me:

House on Haunted Hill -  I was a bit disappointed in this one.  A few chuckles here and there but no real LOL moments. So many of the jokes were focused on the Big Valley guy and most of those backfired for me. Plus, the trio didn't seem as into it as usual. One of the weaker trax.

Swing Parade  -  I got more laughs out of this than HOHH. The first 20 minutes or so in particular was very good. After a while though, the sheer number of musical numbers defeated them.  I actually loved the MST episodes where they riffed on bad singing and dancing (I Accuse my Parents, Mixed-up Zombies.....) and in this one it was fun for a while but by the fourth or fifth musical number I was bored. Still, there is enough funny stuff here to make it worthwhile.  I didn't think the whole 'don't riff a comedy' thing really entered into it, considering it's way more a musical than a comedy.

Night of the Living Dead -  Now this was more like it.  Zombies, cemetaries, country bumpkins, bad carpentry, and  stereotypes galore....plenty for them to sink their teeth into here and I laughed fairly consistently from beginning to end. They seemed to be having a lot of fun with this classic horror film.  A solid trax and easily my favorite of the recent re-do's so far.  Still have four to go however.

Glad to see you liked it. I've been considering watching that one, as I was quite disappointed with the Mike solo one.

Got around to watching Jurassic Park & Transformers, and must say I was very happy with the results. I can't decide which I liked better, but I think Transformers has a slight edge.
Jurassic Park still has one of my favorite riff lines ever though:
Sam Neil pretends to be electrocuted by the fence, then smiles back at the terrified children.
"Im a sadistic bastard!"

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

Easily one of the best. They say everything I said to myself when I first saw the movie, like "why are they clapping do long for Hagrid?" and "why is Eat Slugs in English?" etc. So funny. So great. I love it.

Terminator 3    second viewing:


Good trax. One thing I noticed this time around is that they seemed to be a bit heavier on the extended rants  than many of the more recent trax. I tend to prefer the quick one-liners to the rants anyway, so I'm happy with the current state of things.  They have a lot of fun with this film. There is a bit of humor here and there but the film takes itself just seriously enough to be riff-worthy.  Remember when these Mike and Kevin only rifftrax were the norm? That seems so long ago.

I think the film itself gets a bad rap. Sure, it's not a great action film like the first two, but it definitely falls into the decent action movie category.

All the teenage girls swoon at the sight of Edward throwing up a little in his mouth.

I didn't get to both of the Rifftrax I had planned for this weekend but did have a chance to catch the Twilight riff tonight. It was fine, but I guess I could do w/o a trax for this one as it's already silly-goofy enough for my liking. The love child of Matthew Perry & Powder riff had me stop the number crunching I was doing at that moment, and the pesky armadillo! Ok? k.

Carnival of Souls   three riffer edition

Just as good if not slightly better than NOTLD.  They have lots of fun with the greasy guy, the squirrel-faced landlady, the psychiatrist who isn't a psychiatrist and the whole concept of organ music as a form of actual entertainment. In a few scenes some of the aimless wandering and blank staring does defeat them, but during these minutes of the film it was pretty much a losing battle.  These scenes are a  prime example of a major weakness Rifftrax has to contend with:  their inability to edit out the unriffable bits of the films, as they were able to do on MST3k.

A good trax.

I've watched this so many times in the last three years I've lost count and it just never gets old.  I've always enjoyed Mike's solo riffs (this and Cocktail are in my top 10) I kind of wish he would do more.

Missile to the Moon (three riffer version)

This seems to be one of the least appreciated trax, being that it's a re-do of the Fred Willard version with the same material.  I might be the only one but I actually like this version better.  Yes, the jokes are all the same, but I laughed more. I think I'm simply more entertained by Kevin and Bill. I prefer their attitude and delivery  over Fred Willard.  Not that Fred isn't a talented guy.......

Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory.  Thought this was okay when it came out... but now it's my 2nd most watched RiffTrax (1st being X-Men).  It has two of my favorite lines too.
Spoiler (click to show/hide)

I think it was having NPH that disoriented me at first but there is some great fun in this and I like his and Mike's banter the more I hear it.  And I think it helps that I can put that movie on at any time and quote it from beginning to end and never lose its magic.

Next stop:  XXX.  A great solo riff I can put on any time too.

Jaws

Funny work.  More proof that good movies can be riffed without your memory of the film being destroyed.  The trax was very funny without tearing apart the film in any way.  The movie had enough goofy looking 70's folks in it to give them plenty to work with, and Robert Shaw's ultra-crusty old salt character was riffing gold. A very good time.

IRON MAN

First time seeing this rifftrax and I must say it was hilarious. This is a movie I liked separately, but not so much that I minded seeing it thrashed (i.e. I will never see Star Wars OT or LOTR riffed, or even WIlly Wonka, because I love them too much), so this was lots of fun. Very funny. Any riff that has references to Jeeves and Wooster, Rear Window, and Wallace and Gromit within a few minutes is fine by me. I love making fun of the names, which are sooo ridiculous! Sorry, no favorite lines yet because there's too much to choose from, and it's too new to recall any particular line. But I loved it.

I understand your reluctance to not watch the rifftrax of your cherished films, but you really are missing out on some great trax.  Fellowship of the Ring is one of my favorite Rifftrax.  Like Jaws, they are respectful to the film and end up (IMHO) enhancing the experience. It's actually a great way to experience the movie, especially if you've already seen it a bunch of times.   I like the film too and the trax did not ruin that. Willy Wonka on the other hand,,,,,,I thought it was a great trax but  they did rake the film over the coals a bit.......

I did see Raiders, actually, because, rather like Iron Man, I love it, but I don't mind laughing at the serious parts next time I see it. I may someday break down and see Star Wars the OT, but it'll take some breaking down.

And now that I know FOTR is treated more respectfully (the way the makers of Time Chasers thought they'd be treated), I may someday break down, though it'll be hard finding someone to watch it with me. (I actually have made my own MST3Ks, only short scenes of them, and I did MST FOTR, because I've seen it sooo many times, maybe). But not TTT or ROTK. I don't know. We'll see. Willy Wonka I won't touch though. That's my childhood. Chipmunk Adventure they can savage (I do it myself), but not Willy Wonka.

Up next: Harry Potter 1!

Little Shop of Horrors

My last of the 3  riffer re-dos.  I put this one off for a while because I heard it was the weakest of the re-dos and I have to agree. I chuckled here and there but this one didn't do much for me.  As others have said, comedies (if you can call it that) just don't seem to lend themselves to riffing all that well. Of all the recent Legend trax, my favorite was NOTLD, with Carnival of Souls a close second.

I'm surprised to hear so many people say it's weak. I liked it. (although middle ground by the high Rifftrax standards)

"I'm Dick Miller, character actor. I've been in more crap than corn." has to be one of my favorite Rifftrax lines.

Heroes

Although, like many others, I prefer the two & three riffer trax, these solo trax have their charms. I hadn't seen a mike only trax in over a year. I really liked their other forays into TV land.  While this wasn't as good as Lost, Grey's Anatomy, and the Hulk, it still made me laugh a heck of a lot more than my recent viewing of Little shop of Horrors. Part one had some solid laughs but it really kicked into high gear with part two. I found myself laughing fairly steadily through the second half. From what I've seen so far, rifftrax really can't go wrong with anything involving people with silly super powers.   I realize I'm in a minority but I would love to see them tackle some more primetime TV.

Star Trek V

I showed this at my monthly MST meetup because a couple of people wanted to see them do a trek film. There were ten of us and everyone really enjoyed it, especially the last half hour with all the great riffs about 'god.'  Six of the folks there had never seen a rifftrax and now they are anxious to see more.  I had seen this a couple of years ago and remember really enjoying it and ranking it as my favorite trax.  After watching it again I can't say it's my favorite anymore but it's still quite good and my favorite among the trek riffs.  Lots and lots of LOL moments.  You really get the sense that Mike and Kevin are having fun riffing on this. Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that it was the first time they'd worked together on a rifftrax.

  I've now seen this film six times and it get stupider every time.  I still say that the whole 'trying to find God' thing is a decent idea for a star trek story. In this film however, it was simply used as a gimmick. It's as though they wrote 3/4ths of the script and neglected to write an ending for the god story. Instead, they stick the klingons in there and hope we won't notice.  In  a decent episode of the tv show we would've at least found out what the heck that god head thingee was !! Not that a real ending would've saved this mess of a movie, but it still would've been something.  The whole film  feels unfinished, including the special effects.  I don't understand how the next generation TV show (which was running at the same time this movie came out) can have better special effects than this movie!!  Shouldn't the movie have way more money to toss around?  It never made sense to me.

We also watched the shorts Act your age, Coffeehouse Rendezvous, and Safety: Harm hides at home. These were all big hits with the crowd.  It's amazing how you'll have a completely different reaction to a trax when you watch it with a big crowd. Coffeehouse Rendezvous was the biggest hit of the three.  People laughed like hyenas at this short.   It had always been my least favorite of the three but this time I saw it in a whole new light and now I can't wait to watch it again.

STAR WARS HOLIDAY SPECIAL

Ohhhhhh the paaaaaaaaaain. I'm still in trauma over Bea Arthur's song, Harvey Korman's humiliations, Luke and Leia's awful makeup, the bad writing and music, the disgusting lower lip of scratchy or itchy or whatever, the evil 70s rock and pop musical numbers, and the evil bad cartoon. And to top it all off, the characters are from the original--in other words, somehow it hurts more that it really is Mark Hamill, Peter Mayhew, Anthony Daniels, etc etc. But I think the most agonizing part about this movie is the awful circus that's in the first few minutes. "You know Elton John would pay handsomly if only this device were real." Bill's cries of agony mirror my own. And yet, I've seen this rifftrax three times now. WHy do I put myself through such agony?? Because it's hilarious. Best rifftrax ever. Can't imagine watching this without the trax. Thus my hat is off to the Three Amigos and their creative team.

Pirates of the Carribean:

Great movie, great riffing.  Once again I laughed embarrasedly at the perfect line "I... regret not...arguing more... on the internet..." Sooooooo perfect.

Predator:

Great movie, really good riffing.  As good a solo effort as this is for Mike, I still prefer the group Riffs (as probably do they), but I still laughed aloud plenty of times.  Wouldn't mind a redo as a three-riffer but it would need more jokes.

Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull.   Every time they start humming the Indiana Jones theme, I had to start snickering.   I'm surprised they didn't riff more on the utter ridiculousness of the fridge, though.  Despite the fact each Indy movie seems to have one insanely implausible action, and this was one no different, it's still pretty crazy.  And wildly maligned. 

However, I can't seem to finish this damn thing.   Both times I've settled in to watch, something distracts me.  I have yet to finish the actual Rifftrax.

I'm also pretty ambivalent on riffing.  I'll watch it for movies I like as well as loathe.  Like Twilight: never would I have seen it without Rifftrax.  It's impossible.  My brain can't repel idiocy of that magnitude.   If I had a copy of Willy Wonka, I'd be watching it.  But I'm also a weirdo who likes to put on the commentary tracks in movies all the time, even if it's my first time watching it.  (Cannibal!  The Musical is that much funnier for doing so.)

I have a similar problem.  I stopped at the part with the mummy Aztec zombie people jumping out at Indy and LeBoof.  Every time I go back to it, I get 3 lines in and just can't garner the interest back to finish it.  This has been going on since March.  ::)

Harry Potter 3 aka Harry POtter and the Prime Minister of Uzbekestan.

X-Men and X-Men 2, followed by the unriffed X-3 (I bought the trilogy in hopes that they, or at least some iRiffer, gets around to it soon since I think it's the most riffable of the series)
X-Men was great, but they didn't seem to have much energy. Like the opening brought them down, and they just never recovered.
Didn't like X-Men 2 as much, but still not bad.

I love the first X men riff.   It's in my top ten.   The second one was enjoyable too but not quite in the same league.  I remember that Bill sounded a little different in this one but it didn't strike me as 'tired', just different.  I attributed it to the fact that it was his first rifftrax and he was getting back into the swing of things.

X-Men 1's riff is easily in my Top 5 and definitely the one I've revisited the most.  Perhaps hearing it when it first came out, I couldn't really notice anything different with Bill seeing how it was his first.

Good trax.   Joel did pretty good, however either he wasn't miked well or he wasn't talking loud enough.  There were several times when I couldn't hear him very well. I didn't get a lot of belly laughs from this one but the trax was pretty steady throughout with more than enough amusing moments.  I hadn't seen this film since it first came out.  God, it really is an awful movie.  Not only are we supposed to believe that six high school kids can hold off the entire Russian army, but we get no explanation for what the hell the Russians are doing.  Why shoot helpless unarmed civilians the second they get there? Why put their headquarters in  a small town in the middle of nowhere?  It made less and less sense as it went along.

Well, I don't think the idea was that six high school kids held off the entire Russian army... but that six high school kids waged a guerilla war and caused them some serious headaches. The Germans faced similar issues in France / Eastern Europe, the Americans in Vietnam / Iraq and the Russians in Afghanistan.... small, non-traditional forces taking hit and run pot shots against the big, organized armies that were trained for pitched battles.

While it wasn't exactly the greatest story ever told... the reasoning for the Russians actions were laid out during the exposition attacks from the pre-opening credits yellow text and the scene after they found the downed pilot. Also, there is nothing to suggest (that I recall) that the small town nowhere is the Russian headquarters for their entire operation. I thought it was meant to be respective of any number of towns in the occupied territories, with regional Russian / Cuban military acting as garrison heads charged with keeping the populace contained.

I agree that they didn't do much with the Lea Thompson / Powers Booth tangent... but the relationship could be explained by simply daddy issues. Lea's character lost her family, Powers Booth comes along as the established adult and fills that void. Did the movie handle this very deftly? not really, but I thought where they were going with it wasn't that confusing. 

I'm not really trying to build up Red Dawn into something it isn't...  but I still think it works more than it doesn't... and it's on a slightly higher level than most 80s action flicks.

This movie is a comedy.  Not wholly a comedy... but still a comedy.  I can't bring myself to watch it (also prob cuz of my own inner 10 year old).  Any time the "no riffing comedies" rule comes up, all (ok... most) the cartoon iriffs need mentioning.  It's like I'm the only one who sees the disconnect here.  Oh well.

Excellent trax.  This should even please all the diehard MST folks who refuse to watch Rifftrax.  It felt very MST and I laughed throughout.  I also appreciated the short length.  It's less than 70 minutes. I usually find that I like a trax a bit better if the movie isn't super long.  Probably my favorite of the older films that they've done, although I haven't seen Planet of Dinosaurs or Casablanca yet.

Well I'd like to think that the successful sales of this Rifftrax will make the guys want to do another iRiff contest soon. That means the lesser known contestants from the previous contest will have a better chance without a more famous person overshadowing them.

Troll 2

Believe it or not I hadn't seen this before.  I've been waiting all this time for the right moment.  I'd seen clips of this film at the Smithee awards and it frightened me. Also, I could tell that it was going to be one of those movies that would spoil my appetite for a few hours,which is another reason I put it off for so long. Last night I finally took the plunge, with the support of a friend.  We both thought it was very funny.  We also thought that it would have been almost as funny without the jokes,  but it was nice to have Mike and the other guy along for the ride. A fine job of riffing. I was pretty impressed with Kyanka (spelling?).  I thought he did a fine job and now I'm looking forward to whatever it is he'll be doing during the live riffing.  It will probably be a long time until I re-watch it, however.  The movie is just too icky. One of those films that makes you want to jump immediately into the shower for both a physical and spiritual cleansing.

I have also recently revisited The Matrix... It was the night game in my MST3K / Rifftrax doubleheader.

It's been probably 2.5 years since I last visited this one... I remembered it as good, not great. That opinion pretty much holds after the revisit. A lot of solid riffs, consistent chuckling and a few big laughs... but Mike and Kevin seemed intent to cram in material that would have been more at home during MST3K-style host segments. On more than one occasion, they were just blatantly talking over the movie. While the guys are always amusing during these little tangents, I would have rather just kicked back and actually watched The Matrix itself during these stretches. I guess that's the double-edged sword of riffing on movies that are actually entertaining... sometimes it backfires if you draw too much attention to yourself and away from the film. Still, there are a lot of solid riffs to be found and laughs to be had. I'd give it 3 outta 4 stars.

Empire Strikes Back

Excellent.   Steady laughter throughout with lots of really big laughs.  My favorite of the Star Wars trax.  My only complaint is of a technical nature.  I couldn't hear Chad Vader on some of his lines.  They seem to be having this issue with guest riffers lately (I had the same problem hearing Joel Mchale on Red Dawn). 

I sent my friend into a mild form of shock while watching this last night.  All these years he was under the impression that George Lucas directed this film.  Last night he discovered that neither did he direct it or write the script.  An excellent sci-fi writer by the name of Leigh Brackett co-wrote the screenplay.  I always thought this is the best star wars film  partially because Lucas had less to do with it than most of the others.

TWILIGHT

We wanted to see this again so bad we went to Blockbuster to see if we could get it used, and we did. But I felt so ashamed to be buying it--like I was buying porn--I wanted to hide it in a brown paper bag. I went outside and immediately took the cover out, and went home and defaced it. :) That was the best cleansing ever. This is the worst regular movie I've ever seen, other than a movie called Charley which you should all be glad you've never seen. Soooooooo bad. So bad in fact that the only redeeming thing we could find about the movie is that there are good forest locations. Ain't it pathetic?

That being said, this is the best trax ever---funny as the funniest MSTs. It is so well done that I laughed my voice out. Great. Brilliant. We can't stop quoting it. "THe makers of Twilight would like to encourage everyone to have or look at Breasts." I know a trax is good when I react to the movie and make a comment about how dumb something is, then they make a comment about the same thing. I freaking love this one. Even the pain the film brings is worth it!

Watched Firewall yesterday and just finished Reign of Fire.
Firewall was another "meh" for me, I just couldn't get into the riffs. I like how the movie tries to pass itself off as "intelligent" just because it involved computers and technology, none of which worked the way it really does. First off, don't they know that once any media gets involved with Apple, you no longer have the ability to do anything with it? As soon as it was plugged into another computer they would have lost everything. /dislike of Apple

Reign of Fire, however, was a much different story. I laughed the whole way though. Nice callback to the previous track with Kevin saying Mike is incredibly old, though I forget/don't know what he referenced to prompt that in this one.

Continuing through the catalog with Battlefield Earth, since I recently watched Daredevil with a friend (another very good track)

Planet of  Dinosaurs

Considering I had just viewed three great rifftrax in row (Empire, Voodoo Man, and the live Plan 9) I knew that any trax I watched next had a tough act to follow.  And Planet of Dinosaurs wasn't quite on the same level as those three, but it was still a pretty solid trax.  I felt they relied a bit too much on old ideas and running gags in this one but the cheesy film allowed them enough riffable moments to make it fun.  And all the endless walking scenes did them in a bit, as it would anybody trying to riff this film. As Kevin said,  it was a painful reminder of the famous rock climbing from Lost Continent.  A decent trax that I'm guessing will grow on me with repeat viewings.

I didn't care for this much the first time.  It was suggested that I give it another try and I did enjoy it a bit more the second time around.  Especially the first half.  Still, a lot of riffs fell flat and the riffing in general seemed a little more sparse than usual.  A middle of the road trax.

Battlefield Earth- I was worried that they were just going to make Scientology jokes throughout (like they did with the Tom Cruise movies) but was pleasantly surprised to find only a few very funny ones. Sometimes I think they over exaggerate when they say how confusing and little sense a movie makes, but for this I feel they were not. Funny throughout, but not at the top of my list.

Troll 2- This was one of the first ones I bought, so I've seen it quite a few times already. As stupid and bad the movie is, I still have fun watching it, so I've always liked this track. I've only been to Something Awful a few times, and only when someone sent me a link to look at, but I did know about "Lowtax" being the guy that boxed Uwe Boll. The joke about that was quite good, especially since it didn't seem forced.

Star Trek VI:The Undiscovered Country- Not as good as the previous Star Trek track, but still very enjoyable. Loved the extended Minnesota accent segment. Good thing Bill pointed out Robert Easton as the judge, that's something you don't want to just pass you by. Glad there's only one more riffed movie, I can't exactly say I'm a fan of Star Trek. Though I haven't seen any of the "good" Star Trek, so who knows.

I'll probably get through Over the Top and Aeon Flux before the night is through, then on to The Wicker Man, Terminator 3, and Lost tomorrow night (aka tonight)

I'm going to guess you aren't looking forward to those two Star Trek New Voyages episodes that Kevin and Bill riffed for Rifftrax Presents. The "good" Star Trek is a bit debatable. I'm sure a Trek fan around here could send you in the right direction if you asked though. If you start warming up to the idea of seeing more Star Trek stuff get riffed, don't worry. There's plenty to choose from in the iRiffs section.

I forgot to mention those...I had the intention to, but just never did. In a way I want to see the "good" Star Trek, just to see what the big deal is, but I've got a friend that might be able to help out with that.
As for the iRiffs, I saw that whole big project of riffing all of one of the series, but that's a whole lot of money to invest on something who's quality may be questionable, seeing as how I haven't gotten too far into iRiffs quite yet. What I have bought, however, I have enjoyed.

Over the Top- Despite suffering from "lone riffer", still a good track. And now I get the whole Hawk/Hawks thing.

Aeon Flux- What a weird movie. I'm guessing a lot of stuff is understood better if you watch the cartoon they mention. Since I don't, I explain everything that doesn't make sense by thinking "well, it's the future". I liked when they allowed for making puns, then had it get out of hand. Also, Seinfeld references are always good in my book. Same for Stooges.

I bought A whole crap loud of shorts and watched them

Flight of the stewardess (Got it for free with the movie code Plan 9 was insane BTW): It was just as awesome as it was in the theater, Lacked a few of the forst worth jokes I loved so much, but It really is awesome.

 MOOSE BABY: This might be one of my favorite riffs of all time from the very first joke to the last i was pretty much rolling.

Overcoming Fear: Sweet Riff, another top 25 riffs of all time (counting MST3K and Cinematic titanic).

Lunch Room Manners: I feel like I saw this before or amybe they just showed to much in the preview either way its a funny short nothing overly funny but a solid riff.

Constance beauty something something: It was too short and really not that great in my opinion probably the weakest riff I bought It really had a hard time keeping my attention, and as a film/tv/media junkie thats always a bad sign, I cant recommend this

Cooking Terms: I enjoyed this, once again its in the solid riff category nothing INSANE but it got a few belly laughs out of me...but I watched Moose Baby right before this one so maybe it took away some of the effect.

The problem with seeing something like this, after hearing everybody rave about how great it is, is your expectations are now sky high going into it. I'd heard so many great things about this trax that I was expecting it to be amazing. It wasn't amazing, but it was a funny trax and pretty entertaining. The movie was perfect for them. I really hated the lead actress here. I couldn't figure out why all her non-vamp friends were being so nice to her (well.........the boys wanted to get into her pants....I mean more the girls....) when she doesn't show an iota of interest in any of them throughout the whole movie. After watching this, I'm even more puzzled by how huge this franchise is.  I'm not a huge Harry Potter person, but Harry is definitely worth more time than this mess. A fun trax of a film that totally deserved it.

There's a good chance that will be the case.  Lately I've noticed (with both Rifftrax and MST3k) that many episodes I've re-watched lately that I wasn't originally  crazy about  seem to improve. By the same token,  some episodes that I thought highly of tend to not be quite as enjoyable.  There's a lot to be said for expectations.

This one is hilarious, except that the movie isn't "bad" enough to be as funny as some others. And though Weird Al is hilarious, I think the trax are best with three people. As in many things 3 is the magic number.

I happened to be near Century City when Rifftrax Live was going to be playing at an AMC there. Sweet!! It was HILARIOUS!!! I want them to release this one on DVD/VOD. So funny. I've never seen the movie before and I must concur it is one of the worst movies ever made....but in a hilarious way. Great job with this one.

The Fifth Element

One of my favoritest movies and my 2nd RT purchase evar.  Something I noticed with the riffing is that the longer spacing of the jokes works well in a solo commentary.  If it were rapid-fire and solo, I think it wouldn't have been anywhere near as good.  It would be interesting to see a three riffer edition, but I quite like the RT-forming-some-ground territory (Disembaudio is just a voice here; not a toaster) and maybe I have a tinge of nostalgia to it (if I can even call it that).

Two stand-out lines I don't remember:

[During the Pavalaguna (aka "Mrs. Blue Octopus Head") scene]:
"Papa Smurf hired Lawyer Smurf and they're going to sue the shit out of her."

And, near the end, when Leeloo is crying while reading "war" in the W section of the dictionary:
"Wait till you get to Weird Al Yankovic.  Then the tears will really start flowing."

I seethed a bit when I heard that and imagined Weird Al confronting Mike about it while recording "Jurassic Park".  Which I'm sure didn't actually happen for a myriad of reasons.

I'm sure Al would have taken the joke in stride.  Coincidentally, when Weird Al made an appearance on the The Donny and Marie Show, they confronted Al about the bit at the beginning of Achy Breaky Song where he sings, "You can torture me with Donny and Marie." They pretended to be angry at first, but they were really OK with it. Later Donny showed up in Al's White and Nerdy video. I think the only episodes of VH1's Behind The Music that didn't involve excessive drug and alcohol use were the "Weird Al" and "Donny and Marie" shows.

Right, which is why I said "...I'm sure didn't actually happen for a myriad of reasons."  I really just wondered if Mike woulda picked a different name if he knew he was going to a record a RiffTrax in the future with him.  It's still a very funny joke which rang especially hilarious for me cuz I have a friend who detests Weird Al (don't ask).  Didn't know that about The Donny & Marie Show.  That's great!  It's the nicest people who take the jokes the best and it just makes you love 'em even more.

Star Trek and Matrix Revolutions

I'm behind on my rifftrax but am now working on catching up.  I'm reaching the point, however, where it's getting harder to critique these.  I've reached such a comfort level when I listen to Mike,Kevin, and Bill that it's getting harder to rank one over the other.  They're all pretty much a good time. These two were both typical trax.  Plenty of good riffs with a few great and not so great ones mixed in.  I wouldn't rank either as a top ten riff but both were good solid fun.  I probably laughed a bit more at the Star Trek riff.  The Star Trek franchise always seems to inspire them a bit.  The only Star Trek riff I haven't been super impressed with was Generations. 
God, that Matrix film is really a hard watch.  Half the film is such a mish-mash of flying metal thingies assaulting your senses from so many different directions that it's really quite impossible to tell just what in thunder is going on, even if you were inclined to try. I started to develop a headache watching this mess. And I actually enjoyed the first Matrix movie!  Even the second one seems like Casablanca compared to this atrocity.

1) Titanic.  I'd never seen it before - I can see why it was a hit, I can see why there was backlash that turned it into something to be reviled.  The riff was great, several laugh out loud moments, and it allowed my heart to go on.

2) Star Wars Holiday Special.  I just started getting into torrenting and burning DVDs for myself around Xmastime, mainly to get the MSTs I don't have, and I realized this weekend that that allowed me to finally see/rifferee the infamous SWHS.  I thought I had seen more of it than I did, because back in 78 I clearly was up with my buddy and our Lego sets (and me trying to figure out why I liked staring at his sister's legs so much) pretty soon after the first commercial break.  Because I don't remember anything past the wookies howling at each other.  Certainly not the horrifying awfulness that followed.

Star Wars Ep 3:  Revenge of the Sith - Always funny revisiting this one.  I was surprised how consistently funny this is.  I didn't really detect any low points (nor terribly high points), but definitely full of some excellent one-liners.  Need to revisit the other prequels soon.

House on Haunted Hill - Maybe it's me but I loved watching this.  My favorite of the 10-pack by far.  The movie is fun.  The guys seem to be having a lot of fun.  I certainly had a lot of fun.  I predict this will be revisited far more than the other ones.

Carnival of Souls - It doesn't help that I've been watching the best Twilight Zones lately, so by comparison, I'm not sure this was a movie.  I'm still unclear about what happened.  It's like it wanted to be a TZ ep but got lost along the way.  The guys' riffing made it far more enjoyable for sure.  Seemed to be a lot of running gags in it, but I liked 'em all really (Kevin's killing spree, too much organ music, etc.).

I've watched the prequel RiffTrax more than any others. They are so fun to watch because they're consistently funny and it's a such blast to rip on these movies. For me, the prequels have the highest replay value of the series riffs followed closely by Potter.

They say the "Special Edition", then say that if you own it on DVD it should work. I bought this set (http://www.amazon.com/Star-Wars-Trilogy-Harrison-Ford/dp/B001EN71DG/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=dvd&qid=1264187685&sr=8-1) and they have synced up for the first 2.

From the product page, which is traditionally the place where this type of question is answered:

"This RiffTrax uses the Special Edition version of the film. If you have it on DVD, you have the right version."

The only reason it should not stay synched is if you accidentally downloaded a copy of the PAL riff or used a downloaded movie. 

There should not be any synching issues with our riffs.  If there were, you would A) see dozens and dozens of posts about it and B) we would not still be around after 3.5 years.

Anyways, got to Drag Me To Hel last night. What a way to make a truly awesome movie even better. Fav. riff: "Alright, it's not just me, is it? I mean, this movie has gotten 700 times more insane in the last minute?"

Star Wars Episode 3 Rifftrax. Still love this Rifftrax, although the movie is attur idiocy. I see that it is the "best" of the prequels, but that still doesn't make it a good movie by a LONG stretch.

"'Kay, who wants a piece of the puppet? Huh? Huh?"

Watching it this time after Avatar, the planet with the big glowing plants where the hot blue Jedi chick gets killed, looks a lot like Pandora.

Funny trax.  I didn't think it was as fantastic as many others seemed to, but I imagine it's partially because I watched the entire three hour enchilada in one sitting.   I find I usually like the really really long trax better when I break them up into two nights.  My out-of-town friend was only here one night however.  His first trax and he loved it.

SPIDERMAN 2

wanted to see this for a long time and it was worth the wait. HILARIOUS jokes about the bad FX and how bad the actors are. though we wanted more jokes about how bad the side actors are. There were a lot of "I'm in SAG and this is my big chance to be somebody!" moments. great riff, even without Mike. But all I care about are Bill and Kevin. Sorry Mike, I love you too.

The Room

I asked my significant other if he would indulge me in watching a RiffTrax with me, and, bless him, he said yes.  It turns out that he had seen The Room a few years ago on IFC, when he was vaguely drunk with his roommates and laughing their way through an awful movie.  The RiffTrax, he said, was sublime.  It was the seventh or eighth time I've seen it, so I had to agree.  He was just surprised that the movie didn't take place in "O-hai-o."

I have to say, though, I can't think of a better way to kick off any Valentine's Day than with a viewing of The Room.

Carnival of Souls - It doesn't help that I've been watching the best Twilight Zones lately, so by comparison, I'm not sure this was a movie.  I'm still unclear about what happened.  It's like it wanted to be a TZ ep but got lost along the way.

It was a TZ episode....called "The Hitchhiker".  It starred Inga Stevens and featured the guy from North by Northwest who played the father in The Space Children.

Only question is who copied who...or was it really possible that two people could have the same idea independently.

There should not be any synching issues with our riffs.  If there were, you would A) see dozens and dozens of posts about it and B) we would not still be around after 3.5 years.

Well, there has to be some synching issues during the movies in general or Disembodio could ride off into the sunset for good....   ;)

Just finished Matrix Revolutions - good riff, shitty movie.

Watched the first 20 minutes of 'Revenge of the Sith' seemed more of the same 'we don't like the prequels and will spend the riff reminding you of that instead of making jokes' theme they started with Episode 1, I'll probably watch the rest eventually but I'm in no hurry.

ID4. 

Perhaps not as amazing a riff as I was expecting but Bill got off some fantastic lines in this, I like that they seem to get the silly nature of Emmerich and roll with it instead of making it the focus of the riff.

"And now for the payoff of any Bond film:  opening credits featuring silhouettes of ostensibly nude women wielding guns and jumping on trampolines."

This is why Rifftrax will never do another James Bond film:  that one line basically demolished them all.  Work's done.

The riffing sequence during the opening credits is my favorite stretch of any Rifftrax that doesn't involve Wookiee holidays.

I think Quantum of Solace can be riffed (the many fonts alone would make a great short riff), but I feel the rest of the old Bond movies just come across too much like they know how stupid & ridiculous they are for the RT guys to riff.

Twilight - second viewing

I showed this at my MST meet-up. I liked it the first time but it seemed twice as funny with nine other people. It was a huge hit. It really is a strong trax with funny riffing throughout the entire film. I now understand why this is considered one of their best. Sometimes they just hit the nail on the head as far as new films go. This pale, twitchy tale of the teenage undead was begging for their special treatment. I really really don't get this whole Twilight phenomenon. I would be hard pressed to think of two more unappealing romantic leads than the two in this horrible film. I realize I'm not a 16 year old girl, but this movie stinks even when you compare it to other 16 year old girl things. The new show, Vampire Diaries, is a direct rip-off of Twilight, and yet it's about ten times better then this movie. Haven't read the books, so I can't comment on those. Will definitely not be seeing the second film until the inevitable rifftrax. And even then I'll probably need two or three sittings to get through it.

Pretty good riff considering Bill wasn't there. (He's my favorite). Funniest when they say what I was thinking, like how bad Hayden is (how on earth did he get cast? the other choices must have been terrible!) and how conveniently her outfit gets torn so her bare midriff shows. Funny stuff.

The reason why Hayden sucked so bad?  Because Lucas is a once-great-but-now-shoddy director.  Compare Natalie Portman's acting range and talent to what she delivered in the series.  It's the director's job to make a great actor shine.  I'm sure they're all very capable actors.  Lucas just thought he could direct actors the same way he could direct his special effects people.  Coincidentally, I'm finishing up Episode I.  I'll be back here soon to report.

Heck, even Christopher Lee occasionally gave a bad performance in these movies. Listen to his line reading when he first walks in when Obi Wan is captured. Really, really bad.

I think some actors are more dependant upon the director to give a good performance. Some can be good regardless of what they're in, but some clearly suffer with a bad director.

I've never been into Natalie Portman either---before Star Wars, that is. After Star Wars I hate her even more.
And I have trouble believing Hayden's awfulness is purely Lucas's fault. He couldn't deliver one single line in the film where I believed him, and that's the actor's fault--i.e. it's not a "good" performance by Ewan McGregor, but I at least believe him sometimes. Plus I've never seen Hayden in anything where I even believed him for a moment. Ugh. Shudder.

Another thought. The originals are fantastic because of post production--the great editing, the relatively innovative and good-for-the-time effects, but especially that great music that makes the film seem bigger, more important, and more expensive than it is. But what saved it in the first place, i.e. the reason the raw footage could be edited into a classic, was the great CASTING. That was his fatal flaw. The other thing, to me, is that he made the originals because he really wanted to, and he made the prequels for the money. Motives matter. And, another thought, the originals are fun and funny, but the prequels take themselves way too seriously. Anyway, those are my theories in a nutshell.

I haven't seen any other movie with Hayden in it (though I hear Shattered Glass is very good).  I've never had a strong opinion about Natalie Portman, until I saw Closer.  It's such a dark, dirty and wretched story... but she totally deserved her Oscar nom for that role.  She's also quite impressive in Leon: The Professional as his 11-year-old sidekick.  So I hafta belive Lucas (and his persistent green screen) has a strong role in their poor performances.  Having said all that, I can only imagine Hayden's range is as deep as Robert Pattison's.   :D

Dragon Wars: D war

Well, watched this with a friend last night. I wasn't in the best shape to watch this. Been under the weather and on all kinds of cold medicine, although I got the feeling that being in a drug induced haze may be the only way to watch this film. By the end my friend claimed that he understood most of it, while I didn't have the very first idea of what the heck was going on in any of this movie. I took an instant dislike to the film when it started with a flashback. And then we entered the realm of my ultimate pet peeve: A flashback within a flashback! ( I still haven't forgiven Tim Burton for doing this in Big Tree). The boys kept me laughing enough though. Not much better than those incredibly silly and cheesy scify original films. I was surprised to see so many actors I recognized in this. Hollywood must be feeling the recession too. Can't really rate this one until I've watched it again with a clear head.

The Dark Knight -second viewing

I didn't laugh as much as I did the first time around but this is still a solid trax that doesn't seem to get much love.  Never understood the folks who thought it was taboo to riff this.  Sure, it's a good film, but any movie with guys in capes, animal masks, and clown makeup should be fair game for riffing.  And the ultra dark, depressing tone of the movie makes it even more ripe for ridicule in my book.

This one is a good riff and I too liked laughing at it to break the tension the film creates.

And I just watched JURASSIC PARK. So funny and brilliant. "I just put hardwood floors down in my ducts."

Paranormal  Activity
Ok, I'll admit it, the first few times I watched this movie I actually liked it. But after watching it with the Rifftrax I finally realized how boring it actually is. I'm guessing it's due to the fact that the other times I had seen it I was mostly just talking with friends and not really paying attention except for the parts where something actually happens. When I watched it with RT I realized I hadn't really seen the first half of the "movie". Seriously, I don't remember any of that happening. Good track though.

Troll 2 - Some really great lines in this.  It's hard for me to remember that this has good replay value (for whatever reason), but it does.  Having them point out the logical loopholes I didn't pick up on are particularly delightful.  Maybe my favorite line is (paraphrasing) "Please consult the FAQ for which abstract concepts you can and cannot piss on."   :D

Beowulf.  This one's a sleeper, IMO.  Whenever someone wants to try a RT I look for a newish one they've not seen yet or something I see as a no-fail classic, like Raiders of the Lost Ark.  Sunday I remembered the B-man an we enjoyed the hell out of it.  And it's not a bad movie, cheesy-adventure-wise.

Casablanca

This was okay.  Some really funny moments but lots of average ones as well.  The 'Norm' jokes have been funny in previous trax but they really didn't work here.  I don't believe that any film is off-limits riff-wise, but this just didn't seem as riffable as other classic films they've done such as Raiders, Jaws, Lord of the Rings, and the early Star Wars films.

Transformers 2

Very good trax.  Somehow they kept me watching this film, although I had to break it up into about forty minute chunks over the whole weekend to get through it.  I think it would be physically impossible for me to watch this whole film in one sitting, even with Rifftrax.  Every horrible thing I heard about this film didn't even prepare for how truly horrid it was.  I couldn't even begin to explain what was going on in the film. Even though I watched it in chunks, the last forty minutes left me numb in my extremities. It was just a wave of constant motion with no rhyme or reason or logic to any of it.  It kind of reminded me of the discombobulation I felt during those endless attack scenes in Matrix 3. Although, at least in the Matrix film you knew that all the machine thingees were bad.  In this movie I never had any idea which transformer thingee was good and which transformer thingee was bad.  The first Transformer film left me dizzy and uncomfortable. This one almost killed me.

I laughed a lot at much of the riffing.  If ever a film had it coming, it is this gargantuan mess.  Mike said it best when he quipped "This film is Battlefield Earthy in it's suckiness" or something along those lines. Even watching it in chunks, it was truly difficult to concentrate on the riffs in the last forty minutes of the movie.  During those forty minutes I felt as though my soul was being ripped out of my body. This movie is the Battlefield Earth of the 21st century.  I usually don't like it when they spend too much time talking about how much the movie sucks, but in this case I didn't mind.  I actually would've been disappointed if they didn't spend a considerable amount of time dwelling on how awful the film was.  A very funny riff if you can stomach the very awful movie.

Harry Potter and the Sorcerererer's Stone

This is an A quality track.  While I may not looove it, it is the guys at their highest quality.  See, I wouldn't normally consider HP perfect riffing fodder, but that doesn't stop MK&B from coming up with some incredible riffs.  Really, really glad they gave away those Chamber of Secrets trax plus all the hearty recommendations from those of the forum combining into the enticement of me finally getting around to this one.  Looking forward to HP2 and on.  Btw, Harry Potter and Whatever the Last One Was Released On DVD happens to be imo perfect riffing fodder.  I just hope they get around to it one day (as I'm sure has been mentioned ad nauseum).

Rest of my thoughts of this riff found in this thread (http://forum.rifftrax.com/index.php/topic,6250.msg544236.html#msg544236).  Also, I'm trying to figure out a couple of these riffs (http://forum.rifftrax.com/index.php/topic,17872.msg544239.html#msg544239).  Anyone know?

Fantastic Four - What a great Rifftrax. Just recently bought this movie for the Riff because I found it on sale. Really great throughout (although I think the sequel is a little better Rifftrax). The movie... I never thought anything could make me hate Invisible Woman more than the comics, but they succeeded. I also have to say that while Johnny Storm is kind of abnoxious, he is still the best part of this movie. He enjoys being a superhero, and wants to get out and do things with it instead of the other three emo idiots. The reason he comes off as douchy is because he (and all the other characters) are written so poorly. Had his character been written better, he would have been charming and much more fun. As it is, he's still fun, but mainly in that he is trying to act like how we would act if given incredible powers. I certainly didn't hate him like the riffers seem to.

"Oh, God. What has he been doing?!"

Yeah, Johnny and The Thing were about the only redeemable things about those movies - but of course, it helped that they're already such strong personalities in the comics. I actually preferred Chikilis' performance more, but that's just me.

And I will say I have slightly less hate for the 2nd movie ever since I realized the FX guys stuck in a few glimpses of Galactus' helmet buried underneath that cosmic cloud. I just wish the director had lingered on those shots a little longer so everyone could pick up on `em.

Still, the rifftrax's (rifftraxi?) are great.

I never thought of the Thing that way but now that you mention it......If they've done any film where the toilet humor is appropriate it's this one.  I've never been a big fan of toilet and fart jokes in movies and TV, but I have to reluctantly admit that I usually seem to laugh when the RIfftrax guys partake in them.  I guess I only like them when they're inserted into bad films through snarky commentary.  And I'm sure my love of Mike, Kevin, and Bill also have something to do with it.

X-Men  2nd viewing

Enjoyable. I really like this one, although it was a little funnier the first time around. A few lulls, but pretty strong most of the way. I've said it before but I'll say it again......they can't go wrong with films about people will silly superpowers. That is a genre that I hope they never give up riffing on. I notice this trax has a slightly more intimate feel than the others. This is due partially to the fact that it is a two person riff, as well as the lower voices. Maybe it's just me but Mike and Bill seem to be talking quieter on this riff than any of the others. Did anybody else notice that?

Actually, I believe this was their second co-riffing effort. The first co-riff to be released was Star Trek V and that doesn't have the low voice thing.  Maybe they recorded X-Men first?   No idea.  I just thought it was a little odd because I never noticed their voices that low on any other rifftrax.

And I finally got around to Fast and Furious.  I think I put it off for so long because I was saw this in the theater (we got there too late for our first choice) and really really didn't want to see it again.  Finally took a deep breath and popped this one in. The boys made it worth it.  Many LOL moments.  They have a good time with Vin Dumbell.  These movies really make no sense to me.  It's like they're living in some parallel world where playboy models show up at midnight to rub their asses on cars and watch guys drag race through big cities like Tokyo and Los Angeles that always seem strangely deserted during their odd shenanigans.   A solid trax but I hope they don't do any more of these films.

Inspired by receiving my copy of the newly released complete score from the movie (which is awesome in its own right), revisited Independence Day. What a great rifftrax. I really am a sucker for the riffs where the guys are really giggly throughout (for some reason, hearing them crack each other up makes me laugh more myself), and they're definitely that in this one. Especially love Kevin's reactions - first to Mike's "It looks like you're uploading a virus. Would you like some help with that?" and then his recoiling-in-horror moment to Bill's "And it was Rachel Dratch in a thong" at the end.

EDIT: Oh yeah - and according to wikipedia, there's an unconfirmed rumour that Will Smith's signed on for Independence Day 2 and Independence Day 3, to be filmed at the same time in the next year or two. One can only hope...

Christmas Toyshop on the Christmas Live Rifftrax DVD.  So this is a non-sensical silent cartoon being verbally recounted by a disinterested (and likely drunk) Santa in a dream being shared by two children. Kinda puts the  flashback within a flashback within a photo from HULK (http://quiptracks.com/zencart/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1&products_id=13&zenid=510987ff386abd790b07b546b2d9b5b5) in perspective.

New Moon and Harry Potter 4 again. Hilarious both. Favorite line from Harry Potter 4 is "I think it only fair to his memory that you know the true manner of Cedric's death: he was killed by a chubby buck toothed man holding an evil baby." Second favorite line is when you meet Cedric/Edward Cullen and they say. "AAAA!!! Undead!!! Quick---fall in love with it!!!"

To be fair, he was killed on Voldemort's orders so I don't think it would be wrong to say that Voldemort killed him even though he didn't pull the trigger (or point the wand in this case).

Empire Strikes Back  second viewing

Don't understand why this one seemed to get a lukewarm (get it....LUKE warm?) reception when it came out.  I loved it the first time and I loved it even more this time around. Big laughs throughout and my favorite of the Star Wars riffs.  Haven't seen Jedi yet however.

I watched the DVD of the Christmas live show over the weekend. Great stuff. I had forgotten how funny the "Ding-a-Lings" ad was. This morning I watched the newest short, Values and it was pretty good. Loved the Bill O'Reilly joke at the end.

I really need to watch a full length riff, I haven't watched one since Goblet of Fire.  I've still got quite a few I purchased during the March Madness sale that I haven't gotten around to watching yet, I might do some of them this weekend.

Ghost Rider

Really behind on my rifftrax presents so I thought I would finally delve into some of these trax by unknown riffers (unknown to me anyway).
My first experience with Blame Society.  I was not impressed.  I chuckled maybe three times through the whole trax. This one makes me hesitant to try Batman Forever or Tron or any of the other non Kevin & Mike presents trax.  Except for Cole and Janet.  Have only seen their first one so far (Dirty Dancing) but was very impressed and am looking forward to their others.  Maybe I'll stick with their riffs for now until I work up the nerve to try another unknown commodity.

I don't care for the Blame Society riffs either, but you should know that they are very different in style than the other Rifftrax Presents. Batman Forever in particular is good, as it is done by the That Guy With The Glasses guys (Nostalgia Critic, etc) who are hilarious.

I can't say it's a "most favorite" but I did like that one very much.  Movie was an excellent target.

Last one I watched was Goblet of Fire and it's the first Harry Potter movie that I'd see before seeing it riffed.  And I remember having a lot of the same questions when I first saw it that they bring up - "..and they're making these kids go through this year long Olympics knock-off of Death because...?"

Paranormal Activity

Usually I don't care for too many jokes about how bad or boring or unwatchable the film is.  This trax might have more jokes like this than any other trax but in all honesty there wasn't much else they could do with this.   In a film where nothing happens and everything takes place in the same two or three rooms, what other types of jokes are left?  If the movie had been two and a half hours, I probably would've gotten tired of the same type of jokes but in this 90 minute film they seemed to work well with the non-action of the movie and I found myself laughing at a great number of them.  Still, the limited range of jokes here makes this trax something of a one-trick pony.  It is a credit to the talents of our RT trio that they actually turned this seemingly unriffable film into a fairly decent rifftrax.  I don't think many people could have pulled this off.  This was fun as a one-off, but in future I hope they avoid films that never leave the damn house.

T3. I think this is my least favorite track so far. Didn't get one good laugh out of me. I think that was my first time seeing it, but for some reason a few jokes seemed familiar, specifically the Schnappi one. Maybe that was in the sample? Though that doesn't explain later ones sounding familiar.

Return of the Jedi

Better than a New Hope but not as funny as Empire.  Still, lots of funny riffs.  All the star wars trax are a good time.  I know I'm in a minority but Empire is my favorite of all the Star Wars trax.  I've watched it three times and it hits my funnybone hard every time.  The Christmas Special didn't do it for me like so many others.  I didn't think the riffing was their best.  And that special makes Manos look like an Oscar contender.  I thought MST made me immune to horrible films but the SW Holiday Special makes me feel like a bad movie amateur.  It also makes me feel ill.

Okay. I have to retract my statement in the above post about Empire being my favorite Star Wars riff.  I had forgotten how kick-ass this rifftrax was.  I watched it last night with a friend (and obsessed Star Wars nut)  and we both laughed our butts off the whole two plus hours.   Usually I find a few  dead spots with films of this length but this one  is  remarkably consistent  with strong riffs from beginning to end.  This is now in my top ten.

Crossroads. I've watched it many times, it's probably my favorite of Mike's solo riffs. Even one of my favorites overall.

It came out in '02, a year after I graduated high school, but it reminded me that when I WAS in high school, Brittney was kinda cute. You know, before she became all openly scuzzy and gross.

I'm sure even back then the dark, perilous realm of the damned that lie betwixt her thighs was riddled with syphilis, the clap, and three different STDs that were found to exist only within her.

It was just less obvious when I was a teenager.

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire


Boy, I thought LOST was hard to figure out! My HP loving friend always drags me to these movies when they are first released and then I end up watching the rifftrax of each. Even though I've watched these films twice, I never seem to have a clue what the hell is going on and why everyone is doing what they are doing. When I watch these Harry Potter trax I always find myself wondering how in the world I got through these films in the movie theater. And they go on and on and on......These films are good for one thing....being riffed on. The boys can't go wrong with these movies even if they tried. If there happens to be one scene without much to riff on just wait about two minutes and there is bound to be somebody with one eye show up or a 100 year old guy in a goofy hat and weird robe or a horny ghost or something or other. Like the other three, this fourth Potter film is very entertaining and provides plenty of laughs. Perhaps not quite as strong as the first three but still a lot of fun. I thought it started real strong, was a little weaker in the middle, and then picked up again at the end. I know I've said this before but I think these really really long trax go down better when you split it up into two viewings. I love the jokes about the dangers of Hogwarts for children and how everything Harry touches at Hogwarts tries to kill him! I hope they end up riffing the whole series despite the length of these monsters and my continued bewilderment when I make the mistake of trying to figure things out.

Planet of the Dinosaurs.

I'm always a little wary of the REALLY bad movies. I've found with some of them, that the movie can be so bad that even good riffing isn't enough to save the experience.

In this case, I was wrong. It was one of the funniest Rifftrax they've done.

Watching the first part of 300 now. This is a great riff, but nothing can make this Spartan society redeaming! Just disgusting, I don't give a damn if they made good soldiers. All they have proven is that you can beat a kid into a good soldier. Um... haven't many parents proven that you can forcably make a kid into a good pop star (Michael Jackson), or a golfer, or damn near any sport of profession if you start when they are young enough? And we know that size of babies has absolutely nothing (save for actual pre-natal deformaties, many of whom are not visible at birth) to do with the size and strength they will be as an adult! And a society based solely on only ONE thing is not a stable society, now wonder they failed.

On a side note, the reauthor job by Thrify is very good. The sound levels are perfect to hear the dialog and the riffs. Thanks, Thrifty!

Drag me to Hell



This was my Halloween night choice. I had been putting this trax off for a looong time because I hated this film in the theater. Mike and Bill do a decent job but this is not their best. Kevin's presence is missed. I watched this at a friend's house. Halfway through the film my friend's wife came home and started watching. For ten minutes she was laughing at the riffs harder than anybody else. Then suddenly she says 'Is this that deal with the guys that talk over the movie?' We tell her yes. She gets this big scowl on her face and then starts playing with her cell phone. She paid some attention to the trax after that but did not laugh once. It took every ounce of effort to not comment on this. It's strange how some of the fun for me is ruined when I'm watching an MST/Rifftrax with someone who isn't enjoying it. Usually I'm with folks who are into it.

Once again, here is a Riff I originally hated!  Maybe it was still to close to Heath's death, or the phase of the moon, who knows?  All I know is, over a year later I watch a hated Riff, only to thoroughly enjoy it.  I've noticed the same thing with MST3K.  Once, I hated the teen exploitation episodes.  Now they are among my favorite.  Go figure........... :-\

Matrix and Matrix Reloaded.  Solid riffs, and I'm reminded how good the first movie really is.  The reveal when he wakes up in the goo-pod flipped my "whoah" switch when I saw it in the theater.  The second one... holds me until the highway scene as long as I can skip the confusing Smith crap but then drops off a steep cliff.

I'll probably brave the 3rd one again this week to complete the set, but man, what a dogwash of a film. The 2nd one clearly sets up the "Matrix within a Matrix" plotline; I mean, it bashes you over the head with it repeatedly, yet the 3rd one is about...

CGI Battle mechs shooting CGI shells at CGI invaders?

Was digging through a spindle of old CD/DVDs and stumbled upon my old re-author of "Point Break". A little bit inconsistent in places, the movie itself is entertaining for the most part but limps to an ending... and there were a noticeable amount of riffs that fell flat for me... But when it's all said and done, the high level of laugh out loud gut busters more then offsets the rough patches. Mike latched onto Swayze, Keanu, Gary Busey and Lori Petty and dropped plenty of big belly laughs.

Speaking of the old Mike solo riffs... Of course, they have a somewhat different vibe from the now standard 3-man booth... With nobody else to banter with, except maybe the occasional "let's throw Disembaudio a bone" dialog, the riffs seem to be very focused on the movie. This leads to riffing that is generally more sparse in terms of frequency,  but the source movies are given more room to breath... and many of Mike's solo efforts give me a "less is more" feeling in regards to the overall experience. 

For anybody who came to the Rifftrax party late and has steered clear of the solo riffs because "more riffers" must equal "more fun"... I would suggest you give some of the solo work a try. In my opinion, Road House and Crossroads still compare very favorably to anything I have seen that they have released since. Point Break, Cocktail and Over the Top are very funny as well.

haha with that said i just finished watching lost not to long  ago and it really lived up to what i was hoping. i watched all of lost when they just finished the last season... it is soo riff-able to anyone..the acting. the plot, the fat guy..but i just get hooked on shows with like cliff hangers at the end of each episode..im wondering if ill like heros on rifftrax... but i was laughing out loud for both episodes and recommend Lost for anyone that was fan fan of the crappy show like me  ;D

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. 

So one of my favorite things in Rifftrax-watchin' is when you're thinking something and then one of the guys makes a joke that verbalizes your thoughts to a T.  I about died laughing when one of them whispered "Rosebud..." during the first Ministry Of Magic scene.  During my 3-4 times watching OOTP previously, I'd always thought that guy on the big poster at the Ministry looked like Charles Foster Kane when he's a bit older.  I thought I must be crazy. 

But no!  I am not alone!  Thank you, Kevin, Mike, and Bill for making my day :)

"Blowing up an empty hospital is pretty weak super villainy. It's like stealing a trillion dollars of monopoly money."
"Or blowing up a picture of the moon."
"Or murdering someone's World of Warcraft character."

Also, this riff has one of my all time favorite lines:

Joker: "You wanna know why I use a knife."
Mike: "Cause soup tastes better when it's difficult."

After 14 years, I finally saw "Titanic" for the first time since it came out... and it's all because of RiffTrax.  I think a good portion of hate aimed at the movie comes from contrarian reaction to its success (and subsequent ubiquity).  Sure, there's a lot to complain about, but it's not nearly as insipid as the most forgettable chick flicks are (which is almost all of them).  And when it comes time for the boat to sink, the action truly delivers with special effects that (with some exceptions) hold to this day.

As for the trax itself... I think my expectations were too high.  I feel like a loyal RiffTrax fan will have this in their Top 10, but I thought it was... okay.  Funny in parts, some really solid jokes, but nothing really made me guffaw with laughter (okay... so maybe I came closest with the line "Like the guy in the $3,000 suit is gonna pull an ore. C'MON!").  Still, glad the guys got around to this one and that I finally got to see it.

Battlefield Earth.

There is something to be said for commitment, whether it's the director's commitment to Dutch Tilts and center wipes, the screenwriter's commitment to the phrase "Rat Brain", the art department's commitment to embarrasingly awful alien costume designs, or Travolta's commitment a performance that was so incompetent that it might well make Tor Johnson blush, but I haven't seen such commitment to a doomed enterprise since I asked my ex to marry me.

So, this is the first time I ever saw the movie, and I'm thankful that I didn't watch it without the Rifftrax.  Overall, I think it was a very competent Rifftrax.  I don't think it will be in the Top 10, but it was solid and funny.  There were times with the awfulness of the movie got past them, but I can hardly blame them for it.  This movie sucked worse than the book, which I read as a teenager and hated.

My favorite moment was the Disembaudio laugh track.  It came at the perfect time.

My first Rifftrax. Still one of my all time favorites. I haven't seen it in a while, and now I'm tempted to load it up.

"He's in a Travolta induced fugue state!"

I attempted to read this book about a year ago. I thought the idea behind it was actually kind of interesting (And if you don't know, the movie actually only covers the first half of the book. They planned on making a sequel). I gave up about three chapters in. I'll give it this much: what I did read was, in fact, better than the movie. However, that's not saying much. To quote (probably more like paraphrase, since it's been a while) Bill:

"So the guy who wrote this founded a major religion with millions of adherents. There's no joke there, I'm just pointing it out."

The sad thing is, Barry Pepper is actually a decent actor. He was in the True Grit remake.

Birdemic is still one I have trouble with-- I mean, it is funny as hell and there are more gut laughs in that one than in att the Star Wars riffs combined, but the film itself drives me absolutely insane with rage. How could they haver thought any of that was good? the acting. the effecvts. the dialogue "she's taking a shit" :o "i hear a mountain lion" ??? "solpanuls" >:( leaving the $100 a gallon gas can? the traffic in the background? Victoria's Secret model? a million dollar sale (after 50% discout, of course) :angry: "hanging out with the family" :angry: exploding eagles  :angry: what the hell was wrong with those people!? :grr: didn't anyone thing to question the director? "dude, i'm no bird expert, but i'm pretty sure none of them SPIT ACID!" "i know a bit more about fire dynamics and i know fire doesn't appear in random self-contained patches in a forest and that no operation would result in 0% containment (a comment the "newscaster made that Mike and Co didn't jump on, but that drove me crazy)". has the director ever seen a Victoria's Secret model? omg-- i'm getting all aggrivated just thinking about it now.

I edited down your post for brevity sake... But for me, the moments like the ones you pointed out do not incite rage... quite the opposite.

 ;D :clap: :highfive: :) ;D

That's what I think when I watch Birdemic and movies of it's ilk... That something can still be made, in this day and age, that is so completely awful and delightfully unaware of it's awfulness is so wonderfully entertaining in it's own right that it just makes me all warm and fuzzy. The world needs more folks like this insane shithead that made Birdemic and a lot less recycled corporate paint-by-numbers CGI 3D crap from the major studios. If nothing else, and you couldn't imagine ever watching it unriffed, they at least provide glorious amounts of riff fuel... and I enjoy them quite a bit more than circling the bottom of the barrel on the 3rd or 5th movie of some big budget franchise... when the good jokes from the first installment are completely bludgeoned and begging for mercy.

Casablanca.

The material was good, but I don't think it necessarily worked, at least in the classic "sync your MP3 player with the DVD" use-case. The (original) film is dialog heavy, with tight comic timing in a lot of the best bits. There aren't many of those nice big gaps between lines (yay modern filmmaking) in which to place the extra funny, so the guys were talking over the characters a fair amount of the time.

It'd probably work better if I went to the effort to build a pre-sync'd DVD with the original audio ducked as needed, but I haven't advanced to that level of RT Mastery yet.

But I'm all in favor of the guys doing more 'good' movies. IIRC, Citizen Kane isn't so rapid-fire with its dialog... that'd be a fine choice, I think. Or maybe some of the classic '30s Universal monster movies.

That's what I think when I watch Birdemic and movies of it's ilk... That something can still be made, in this day and age, that is so completely awful and delightfully unaware of it's awfulness is so wonderfully entertaining in it's own right that it just makes me all warm and fuzzy. The world needs more folks like this insane shithead that made Birdemic and a lot less recycled corporate paint-by-numbers CGI 3D crap from the major studios. If nothing else, and you couldn't imagine ever watching it unriffed, they at least provide glorious amounts of riff fuel... and I enjoy them quite a bit more than circling the bottom of the barrel on the 3rd or 5th movie of some big budget franchise... when the good jokes from the first installment are completely bludgeoned and begging for mercy.

I have to say, that's a very unique way of looking at it that I shall certainly try. it's tough though... so so tough...

oh, and birdshit? that actually makes a bit more sense... doesn't explain the flesh burning or death though.

No, but I figure birds that can explode when they run into things can probably also produce acidic shit.

Finally got around to The Sixth Sense.  Tons of good laughs in this one.  Just the "Bruce Willis isn't a woman" jokes in the first few minutes made it worth the price. 

I actually didn't think I'd like it much, because I actually kind of like the movie.  This is a mistake I shouldn't have made.  See, I consider ID4 (unriffed) a guilty pleasure and it's my all-time favorite Rifftrax.  Finding the humor is sometimes easier when you don't hate the movie.  Anyway, I have a feeling this will be in my top 10 next time I decide to figure out what my to 10 are.

A couple of days ago I watched the Grey's Anatomy riff of episodes 1 and 2... then made the fatal mistake of watching the third episode.

This morning, I found myself spending $40 to order seasons 2, 3, and 4 from Amazon. 75 or so episodes of the "womaniest show ever", and that only gets me about half-way there. I'm not even sure I like it that much, I just need to know how it turns out, now.

So thanks a lot, Mike...!

Due to a difficulty adjusting to new work circumstances I  recently went through an extremely too long Rifftrax cold spell (only two or three of them in a year and a half).  Now that things are back to semi-regular normalcy I've jumped back in and realized how much I've missed this stuff.  Last weekend I re-watched The Phantom Menace trax.  I can't think of another movie they've ever riffed where they were this nasty to the film.  They seemed to have a real intense hatred toward it.  Not that it isn't deserved.  Great trax.  Last night I watched Santa and the Ice Cream Bunny for the first time.  I agree with whoever said that this film is the Manos of Rifftrax.  Like MSTs Last Starfighter, this is basically a 90 minute ad disguised as a movie. This has to be the weirdest kid's film ever made.  It's been a long time since I've laughed as hard as I did during the 'what the hell are we' scene and the scene where the riffers are screaming in terror at the surreal monstrosities on screen.  This one deserves to become a holiday classic.

If I have already watched a recently released movie, then they release a RiffTrax for it, I don't seem to enjoy it much.  If I let it sit for several months, and the movie has waned in memory, I see it with fresh Riff eyes.  This has happened with manyfor me: Ironman, Thor, Inception, The last Airbender, Clash of the Titans etc.

Inception.

Wow, was this a bad film, much worse than the awful Memento. I haven't seen Dark Knight but based on my recent viewing of these two I'm going to consider watching it riffed.

How can any director be so clueless as how to film and make a dream seem interesting. Amazing.

The riffing was slow at first, but somewhere in the middle it took off and there were some really clever riffs, so much better overall than Memento even with the film being so long and tedious.

Here is Nolan's directorial style in a nutshell:

Banal and confusing conversation
Hackneyed chase scene
Banal and confusing conversation
Hackneyed chase scene
Banal and confusing conversation

Banal and confusing conversation
Hackneyed chase scene
Banal and confusing conversation

The above scenes alternating in an endless spiral....

Guessing Dark Knight will follow the same pattern.

I give the Inception riff an 8.

After almost two years of only really buying the mp3's and reauthoring movies, this is only the second VOD (and first short) I've bought.

Wow.  Who was this thing made for and why?  Why?  God, why?

Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory

I'm sure I saw this one before... back around the time it was released... but I didn't have any recollection of it on this viewing... That's a surefire sign that I was probably enjoying a few too many barley pops the first time around. Anyways, thought this provided consistent enough chuckles but there were very few laugh out loud moments. Still, everything moved along nicely and I always had a smile on my face... NPH was really good in his guest spot and probably delivered most of the best lines. But it's not something that I will likely consider for many repeat viewings... this is one of those movies that I'll always enjoy more sans riffing... just a bizzaro classic on it's own.

I must say that I both love and hate Rifftrax.  ;D They have made me actually watch and enjoy those wretched "Twilight" movies. I can't believe Rifftrax is constantly able to take the festering turds coming out of Hollywood and turn them into diamonds.  Rifftrax is the only way to keep up with the Hollywood crap and not have your head implode.  I absolutely love your "Twilight" riffs and have shown them to friends with great response.  My personal favorite riff from"Breaking Dawn": "Another rejection from a college that requires shirts." 
I also very much enjoy the "Harry Potter" riffs.  "Chamber of Secrets" is one of the funniest riffs ever.  I had to pause it several times because I was laughing so hard I couldn't breath.  I still haven't watched all of "Half-Blood Prince" for the same reason.  The riff "Harry Potter and his elderly gentlemen friends" makes me almost pee my pants.  Keep up the great work.

My old mix was lousy...Mike's solo commentary wasn't audible in many sections where the movie's music was loud.

Yep!, I did the same.  This was my first Riff, and like you, I missed most of it.  I remixed, rewatched, and re-enjoyed, where it all started.  It holds up VERY well.  It will always be one of my Fav's.

Roadhouse really is a great riff.

Last night I finally watched the Karate Kid III riff. It really is quite good and it's a shame it sold so badly. My favorite thing about it was how intertextual it was with other RTs--there are riffs on Birdemic, the Room, the Happening, and others in the movie, so it's great for diehard RT fans.  Plus, the villain is so comical and Ralph is so...androgynous? that these make for good comedy.

I didn't know KK3 wasn't a great seller..? That is too bad, because it is a fine piece of comedic work. But like MST3K, I think time will be kind to Rifftrax and these will be recognized justly. Sometimes you have to wait awhile in order to see successful results  :)

The Artisanal Shorts DVD.

I really strong one. I liked every short though I think they could have waited to release Grasses and Paper and I since they were part of the live show.

The Turkey short was hilarious but really disturbing. My girlfriend has spent some time around turkeys (heh, including me I guess, though I'm a jive turkey) and was really freaked out at how sick looking the turkeys were.

I think County Fair and Calender are my favs.

Thor

Some solid riffing but nothing spectacular. The movie was very hard to take, swallow and redeliver. Branaugh has finally stopped ruining Shakespeare though and that is good. The movie was even worse than I could possibly imagine.

When are they going to stop doing the cliche two people (or three in this case) hanging onto each other above an abyss thing? (Last seen in Star Trek reboot). I laughed at that more than any of the riffs, I think.

Avatar

Sometimes with the big budget blockbuster riffs, the jokes rarely rise above 'mildly amusing' and the whole thing just gives me a vibe of being obligatory... Like they went into the thing knowing they had to write a riff because it made a gazillion at the box office and it was going to sell a kabillion DVD copies. Thankfully, Avatar did not fall into that category. While it's a three hour movie and not a non-stop side splitter... the movie offered up a lot of great riff fuel during the middle 90-120 minutes and the guys delivered a lot of laughs. I'm pushing 40 years old... and I'm sure Mike, Kevin and Bill are all 10-20 years older than I am... and they dropped a freakin Boy Meets World riff in there. I guess that could come from a staff writer or freelancer or whatever... seeing I was in college when that show was on the air, I can't imagine Mike or Bill having any point of reference for it.... But it was that kind of riff overall... Lots of clever / obscure riffs... Lots of laughing at the movie, virtually no bashing it without really making a joke... like they were occasionally guilty of during the SW prequels.

They weren't going through the motions, you could tell they had a good time with this. Probably not something that I would consider a 'top 10' or whatever... but I'm very glad I finally got around to watching it... and bummed out that it took so long to get there. I really couldn't imagine watching Avatar again without the Rifftrax... which I guess could be a backhanded compliment... but good times all around. I give it a B+

what's with my double post? why aren't you kids eating your wheaties and just finshing the watching of Rifftraxes?

Titanic

As time goes on... I realize that I actually like this movie. Sure, the script is bloated... I really think they could have found some more economical way of setting up the story besides Bill Paxton Treasure Hunter and his bizarre move of flying a 100 year old woman out to the middle of the North Atlantic by helicopter... But anyways... the movie generally went down easy on this viewing. Considering all the setup at the beginning and the hour of sinking ship at the end... the romance in the middle isn't really overdrawn or tedious... There are a few great jerkoff bad guy evil types in Zane and Warner... After going over a decade between viewings... I was surprised that I enjoyed this three hour behemoth as much as I did.

Mike, Kevin and Bill deliver a lot of really funny lines... and I guess I shouldn't complain about the 100 year old woman... as the really, really elderly always seem to provide great riff fuel. Eventually they did seem to founder a bit towards the end when about all the movie was giving them were various stuntmen and CGI folks plummeting off railings... but overall another great riff on a three hour Cameron epic.

Shorts to Go

Good set here.  Love the seat belt short, although I can come up with a better excuse for not wearing a seat belt that this thing.

But I must comment on William's Doll.  This one was funny yes, but it really makes you think.  Why is it OK in society for a girl to play boy's games but a boy cannot have a doll?  Yes, things have changed a bit (more PC), but boys still get made fun of for it.  I remember my friend's son (he's 17 now) asking for a doll at five.  You'd have thought he'd said the most horrible thing in the world.  He did get his doll, and played with it, not in the the creepy way in the short though. 

And the Gasoline short.  People cleaned clothes with gasoline?  The Hell?

Now I'm going to go purchase Galaxy Invader and Crater Lake Monster.  Wheeee!!!

Joyride was a short our riffing troupe picked to riff at first, but later we decided against it because of the ending and that it was based on actual events...which wasn't very funny.  I applaud them in the attempt, and I agree the riff was so-so (as have their riffs from most of this year have been, sadly).

Prisoners of the Lost Universe. I never met an MST/RiffTrax that I didn't enjoy, but I've always thought that Mike, Bill and Kevin do their very best work with the fantasy crap from the 80s (Outlaw, Deathstalker and that school). There's just so much to work with from those decades: clothes, hair and music, as well as the strange longing to be the new Conan. Prisoners of the Lost Universe kept me laughing pretty steadily throughout, particularly the comments on John Saxon trying to be an intimidating warlord in his disco outfit. It's not quite Outlaw (missing Jack Palance picking up a paycheck) but I'd highly recommend it for people who love Mike & Co.'s work on the sword and sorcery pics.

In the last few days I re-watched the Dark Knight and Jaws trax.  Both solid riffs with lots of laughs.  Watched Jaws with a dozen other people at our Rifftrax meetup.  Our little group was comatose for two years but has recently been revived.  The Jaws riff turned out to be a crowd pleaser.  Lots of laughs, even before Quint showed up.  I was amazed that there were two or three people there who had never seen the movie!  Made me feel old.

My favorite Riff:
TW: You know what they say, "Love is blind."
Bill:  Yeah, but they don't say, "Love is a cuckolded idiot."

I guess it was just Bill's delivery.  I haven't laughed that hard for a long time.  I can't wait to watch it again, actually.  Except for the sex scenes of course...  Spiral cut ham.  Spiral cut ham...

Some of them are funny, except for the stuff with Walter.   (Of course, that's a topic that's already been discussed at length in another thread, so no reason to go into it further.)

Just got back from Manos, LOVED IT! If you haven't seen it yet. . . well, you're properly boned, aren't you?

Nah, if their past releases are anything to go by, I'd say a VOD and a DVD will be available in the near future. But there really was nothing like seeing it in a theater not FULL of people, but a respectable audience for a town my size! This is the second Rifftrax Live I've been to, and this one definitely had a lot more people there, so Rifftrax is growing in popularity-- as it SHOULD! These guys are among the few people in this industry who really deserve their success.

But yeah, it had a couple really great shorts-- I'd expect those to go on sale before long, too. And they used a good copy of the movie, and I think the riffing was better than MST3K's effort. Part of that might of been just the fun of seeing it with an audience, but I do think this time they had better timing. It seemed like with this version they really mastered knowing when to make a wisecrack, and when to just be quiet for a beat and let the movie's crappiness speak for itself.

It's really tough...I couldn't help but think of the classic MST3K lines during some scenes, but it is true, some of the timing and the bits just work here that show a mastery of the craft.  It's the same thing I think of watching older MST3K episodes...even if the episode has a lot of good lines (just finished Fugitive Alien the other day, which fits that description), there's just things about the earlier writing that grate on me, especially the constant "Huh?" portions whenever somebody tells a joke that may be even be mildly obscure.  I still consider Manos one of the best MST3K episodes overall, but then again, despite what anyone feels about the host segments, I always felt even the weakest later episodes just a had a sense of comfort and timing that the earlier shows can't match.  And ergo why I think this Manos riff is still excellent...there is something to be said about knowing when to get out of the movie's way and let it make its own gravy that only time and experience can allow for.

And wow...I figured the scene of the Master slapping the crap out of the one wife would be cut for TV because it is unpleasant, but I had no idea that MST3K cut out so much of Torgo just trying to get up and move, too (if I'm remembering correctly; I just don't recall Torgo getting out of his dirt bed being quite that drawn out before).  When you have to make a movie 70 minutes by just not trimming minutes at a time at the beginning and ends of your scenes, you know you're in deep trouble.

Bloody Pit of Horror. Bloody hell, absolutely loved the sleazy movie. I wish I could make the oiling the body in the front of the Castro District mirror scene leave my already scarred memory, but-- Did this film have a bloody hell of a subtext or what? Wow. (Afterward I watched the 1932 Island of Lost Souls which, by coincidence, seemed to have a lot of the same I love my male self, hate women, subtext as well).

The riffing was dynamite in parts, a little slow in others. Then again, it might just be The Summer Head Cold that Would Not Go Away....

ICWXP is definitely one of the best and most creative iRiff teams out there (if not THE best). Bloody Pit of Horror (episode 103) is definitely my favorite out of all of their releases. Although the "Ghost Rider" (from episode 104) short is my favorite short they've done. The Morgan Freeman impersonation at the end cracks me up every time.

Dragon Wars: D-War

Maybe one of the worst movies to receive a Rifftrax, and one of the funniest Rifftrax ever.  It's as if Michael Bay tried to combine The Terminator, Cloverfield and Reign of Fire.  And, yes, the Riffs contain references to all four of those elements.

I had some great laugh-out-loud moments with this one.  I really loved Mike's impression of Al Paccino as the voice of the good dragon.  So funny.  The whole section during the L.A. battle about Kevin's colon just killed me.  I loved this Riff.

As a side note:  This is one reauthor when I wished that I was better at including forced subtitles.  They are pretty necessary at the front.  Luckily, the closed caption worked and I was able to watch that instead.  I think I'm getting better at reauthors, though.  I started this one at 3:00 pm and started watching the completed DVD at 6:30 pm. 

During the Autoducking part of the reauthor, I made and ate dinner with my mother and my niece.  General Tso's Chicken.  Yum.  Unfortunately, I don't know how to cook any Korean dishes.  That would have been appropriate.

Watched Neutron vs the Neil Young Zombies. Thought a great deal of it was hilarious. The dubbing really made this one and whenever Nick and his boss, Mumhead, were on screen this was dy-no-neutronic. Some slow spots though. I"d rate it on the borderland between a 8 and 9.

Watched The Revenge of Dr. X on a double feature the other night with CT's Rattlers.

What a great lot of fun. Wow, Dr. X was nearly Monster a Go Go bad (though there was a monster). Does this movie really exist or did I hallucinate? Rattlers we nearly as bad. They made a good double feature in terms of the bad acting, especially by the leading ladies.

Tonight, Hunger Games (time to watch a "new" movie) and tomorrow The Guy from Harm, er, Harlem.

Watched Indy 4 and Aeon Flux this past week.

Indy was really fun.  I forgot how bad that film was.  The riffs were really funny though.

Aeon Flux was just weird.  I think this may have been only the second time I have watched the riff of this.  Kept getting distracted during it so it wasn't really holding my interest that much.  One of my early attempts at reauthoring, the sound mix is off with the movie audio too low compared to the riffs, making it hard to watch anyway.  Might have to redo this one at some point.

The Guy from Harlem, last night.

Going in my top five, I think. Such a great riff. I love that they referenced Setting up a Room as the movie had the same "when is this going to turn into that kind of movie" feel. I don't think I stopped laughing once.

Watched The Happening.  Never gets old.  Strong riffs combined with a ridiculous friggin movie.  One of their best efforts.

Also watched Reign Of Fire.  Been a while since I had seen this one, so the riffs were sorta fresh again.  A few big belly laughs but not one I would want to watch over and again like The Happening or their other top Rifftrax.

Bermuda Triangle.

The weakest riff since Crater Lake Monster but still quite fun. Not since Sandstorm and rock climbing has there been such sluggish dullness (talking about the underwater scenes).
It didn't help the shark killings dulled my mood as well. (really pointless and awful)

Things picked up when Gordon and the Captain were around. Loved the riffs about their hotline and whatnot. (and bikini girl, too. I also love the taste of thirst quenching Tang).

The Room

Still funnier without the Rifftrax IMO, but a solid effort nonetheless with some big laughs.  And of course, Lisa is so beautiful so it is always fun to watch.

Ocean's Eleven

Didn't quite enjoy this one as much as when I first watched it.  Liked Richard Cheese as a guest riffer (especially his spot on Andy Garcia impression), but a lot of the jokes fell flat this time around and I found myself trying pay attention more to the movie (which is a fave).

Nightmare at Noon
Not as funny as some recent offerings, but every once in a while they really nailed it. The movie was fairly fun too though I'm still at a loss to who Bo Hopkins character is supposed to be and what his deal was...
Helicopters? And the albino guy was who and why? I'm as confused as Wings (Hauser not Paul McCartney and...)


Also, loved that this was clearly filmed in Moab, UT and Arches National Park. A town and a park I've enjoyed hiking in a lot (although the filmmakers even mangaed to make this beautiful place seem bland).

Canyonlands is in fact a national park too, (just a few miles away from Moab and Arches) not a town. Though they riffed on the silliness of a town called canyonlands they never mentioned this. Missed or just too obvious?

Watched Cloverfield last night.

The first half was very funny but by the end I felt our intrepid riffers were pretty worn out shouting over all the "action" and I was ready for it to end too.

I didn't pay much attention to this movie when it came out so I was a little surprised to find it such an old fashioned monster movie, full of every cliche in the book. The main characters were insufferable. I haven't wanted to see the main characters die in a movie since Nightmare at....uh, ok that was only a week ago.
And why weren't there at least some hot girls in it? I mean, come on! I watched Fiend without a Face the night before and now that one has a hottie in it.

I loved Disembaudio's canned musical outro following the last line.  It kinda surprised me when I watched it recently, because I hadn't seen it in a while.  It really wakes you up to the fact that there is no soundtrack music.  I so hate found footage movies...

I watched Casino Royalle earlier today.  I really like this riff.

You know, in the three riffers, Bill and Kevin play off of each other a lot, so this riff really gives you a chance to see the comedic chemistry that Mike and Kevin can have with each other. 

The "Hi-Def/$11,000" jokes still crack me up for some reason.

Well, the film was annoying as hell. My third Nolan movie and I can now say without a doubt he is an even crappier director than Pete Jackson. And way way too long of a movie. Kudos to MK&B for doing their best--there are some really great riffs--but the movie is just long and dismal for them to have riffed with consistency.

Poltergeist riff by Cole and Janet - This is phenomenal! Now my favorite of the Janet and Cole Rifftrax Presents. I still prefer the Hor-Riff-ic Presents riff, but this is very close. Highly recommended!
Cole and Janet really put so much performance into every riff, they re definitely on par with Rifftrax themselves. I love their banter, too. They definitely take advantage of having more than one riffer. Also, I am always in favor of having female riffers. Helps distinguish the riffers voices, you get a wider vocal range for riffs, everything.


Tobe Hooper, or not Tobe Hooper.

Loved the Poletergeist theme lyrics song in the opening credits.

I built this to look at the eclipse.

Pizza Hut. Proud supporter of lazy parents since 1972.

"Wow!" - You're scrawnier than I am!

Why is she the scariest thing in this movie so far? (THANK YOU! Jesus, she is fucking creepy as hell in the lighting in that scene! Gahhh!)

We're moving it to someplace called District 9.

Fantastic Four Rise of the Silver Surfer

First time for both the movie and the riff.

The Riff: the best comic book movie riff I've seen so far. Never hit it out of the ballpark but I was laughing constantly. I think this one worked so well because it was so wretched and gave them a lot to work with whereas the Avenges was merely dull and mediocre and a film like Thor is simply bad but not howling bad. F4 Rise of SS was howling bad.

The movie: What were they thinking?
And shouldn't Jessica Alba be given some sort of award for worst comic book movie performance ever?

Rise of the Planet of the Apes


Well, some very funny riffs but it still made me glad they don't just any old blockbluster anymore. I do have to say the movie was even worse than I expected. Such a childish and awful script--it's like they were going for a kids movie (which the original Apes movies essentially were) but wanted to give it some seriousness and just made it silly. Ugh.

I believe our riffmeisters missed one instance of shameless pandering. The orangutan was named Maurice after Maurice Evans who played Zaius in the original.

Batman serial Tunnel of Terror. Pretty fun. I don't know if they'll be able to keep the funny through more than a couple more but I'm glad they're doing this.

Rifftrax Live: Birdemic. This was the first live show I had to miss. Thought now was a good time to finally see it as a warm up for this week's show. A slight improvement on the MP3 and there was more interaction with the audience than I remember in previous shows though I think our riffers could have done a little more dancing at the end. You know what I'm sayin'?

2nd time for Buffalo Rider. Even better than first viewing. I think this one works so well for me because they get to release the dark riffs--a lot. I think I'll notch this one up to  a 10.

Little Shop of Horrors. A decent riff, better than I though it would be. They did a good job considering the film is already a comedy of sorts.

There is some seriously hilarious riffs in Glitter, but the overall experience leaves me sad and achy.

For my Mary Jo/Rifftrax fix I always go for X-Files.

Just finished watching Brainiac, didn't realize what I had been missing out on for so long. I've had the file on my computer since release but just never watched it for some reason. Also after watching Brainiac I have officially seen every Rifftrax except Manos live (put me out of my misery and release a VOD or DVD PLEASE! :angry:). I only own about half of them so there's allot I want to go back and re-watch but I can't justify the expenditures right now.

The Happening

Depending on your perspective, it's either a shitty A-movie or a decent B-movie. Obviously it's not very good, but methinks a decent slab of the hate it got at the time was just M.Night bandwagon bashing. Had it been done by some unknown writer/director, it would have came and went.. just another mediocre suspense movie... While the general construction of the thing does make for perfect riff fodder, I don't think the movie itself is Razzie worthy or anything.

As for the riff, it comes right out of the gate hitting on all cylinders... and the first hour of the riff is excellent. Plenty of reaction shots and relatively low amounts of dialog gives the guys plenty of time to deliver the goods. Like so many great second bananas littered throughout the MST3K / Rifftrax catalog, John Leguizamo brings laughs outside of all relation to his screentime.... The big belly laugh factor was probably a bit low, but the consistently chuckling factor was high.  I watched it in a hospital waiting room and had a couple of audible snorts here and there. The final third or so is where things get a bit dull. Once the script has laid all the cards on the table and little new meat is thrown to the wolves, the riff fills lots of time with Walhberg sucks / M.Night sucks boilerplate. Overall, a very solid effort.

I was almost sold on Guy from Harlem when I found this one. So glad I got this (though I do plan on getting GfH eventually). I love the guest riffers and all the shorts were great, especially Welcome Back Norman and Cooking Terms. Made me miss all those guest riffer trax from back in the day.

What the hell was this movie? Whatever the hell that was, it makes a great riff.

It was about that time that the Duke boys refused to show up...

--

How to Use a Calender... man that was just trippy.

--

Over The Top

It's really interesting to go back to the old Mike solo riffs (well Disembaudios gets a few lines in) as they feel quite different, they feel a lot more casual and laid back.

--

Safe Living at School

Seems strange people would need to be told simple things like 'look where you are going', but then I realise I was one of those people who would walk around with their nose in a book.

McBain, wow the number of recognisable names in this one was surprising. A good solid riff. The actress is unrecognisable these days.

I wonder if Cows ever get heartburn?

It's ok, it's they very old style, so very casual Mike, occassionaly having long conversations with Disembaudio. I wouldn't say it's a great one though. Certainly not one I would recommend to someone new to rifftrax.

I hate when the Glass slides down and you can't see the pretty lady.

Fifth Element.

I love this movie. Watching it again, it just holds up so well, the Riff... not so much. This was the first one I watched back in the day. Roadhouse wasn't a movie I had heard of so didn't have sitting around. Now I'm sure I enjoyed it, and it clearly it got me hooked, but this isn't the type of riff you would use to introduce anyone to Rifftrax. It suffers from all the symptoms of the worst of the early solo trax. It's quite sparse at times, super casual, and there are huge off topic discussions with Disembaudio, & the audio isn't that great. It's ok, it's just showing it's age, a lot.

I'm not sure what was riffed more, The Rolling Stones, Clowns, or Kevin Federline.

The Fifth Element was the first one I saw when I first heard about Rifftrax, I thought it sucked and the idea of Mike riffing alone didn't appeal to me. After that I didn't even bother checking the website for a couple of years until I saw the ROTLA riff at a friends house and realized Kevin and Bill had joined.

The Magical Dissappearing Money.

A really solid good riff of a frankly pretty weird little short. I was wondering who it was made for since it seemed unlikely a supermarket would fund a film to encourage people to buy low mark up items over high mark up ones. Powdered Milk is freaking disgusting!

--

It's not just mien kampf is our kampf.

Writing Better Social Letters

Starts off a little slow, but soon picks up. Pretty good. It is weird to think so hard about thanking people.

The letter supports marriage equality on facebook!

--

Woman, get my my warning hat!

Heroes - "Genesis" & "Don't Look Back".

Man I wish this show hadn't plummeted into suck so damn quickly. This is a good solid Solo Riff. This one had the mix of Mike and Disembaudio just right. Must be one of the earlier instances of Dis singing too. Mike's casual more slower paced riffing fit the pace of the show ok, there weren't lots of empty spots.  The previously on rifftrax was particularly good.

Parts of Speech

Overall fairly dry short about sentence and words types. The riff kind of relies on just a handful of set pieces and running gags. I wouldn't rank it as one of the better ones.

Fuck Dwight L. Burton!

This isn't Borat is it? People aren't being tricked into appearing in this movie?

Eragon

I love this riff. It's pretty much perfect. The movie is pretty much ideal, competent, but stupid, with a little bit of money behind it. That cast is great. Rachel Weisz  who sounds like she under duress for most of the film, a completely forgettable lead actor, Lady Robert Carlyle, Jeremy Irons and John freaking Malkovich. Mike and Kevin sound like they are having a great time all they through the film, but the ambiguous relatives at the beginning right up until the fashion battle giving us one of the best lines of the movie..

"We've run out of fruity hats my liege"

This is exactly the type of riff I would introduce to new people.

-----

This is just like Gone in 60 seconds, except people went to see Gone in 60 Seconds,.. and this was gone in 60 seconds...

NEXT

Well that was a weird effect, I'm glad we won't be seeing that again.

I had not seen this one before. NEXT didn't get a release in NZ so I wasn't able to get onboard immediately, and by the time I got the DVD I just didn't get around to watching it. (It's one that I had to purchase the DVD rather than just rent it).  This was... interesting. This is Mike and Bridget, so there are lots and lots of 'this is the state of our marriage' jokes, and what I felt was an uncommon reference to their religious beliefs.  You looked great up there reading the gospel. Not bad, just unusual. And of course due to the nature of the material, lots of joke repetition.  I didn't see the twist coming. I enjoyed it got plenty of laughs out of it. So I would rank it better than average.


Well that was a weird effect, I'm glad we won't be seeing that again.

That appears to be a horse....

At your fingertips - Cylinders

Another odd short, that makes you wonder how it got made in the first place. Lots of creepy kids. Starts off a bit slow, but ends up being pretty solid overall.

Cylinders... known for their rectangular shape and 2D-ness.

Meanwhile in Polly Wolly Ting Tong.

Star Wars Episode 1 The Phantom Menace.

An entire race of vacuum cleaners!

Well if ever there was a bad riff, this is it. I mean there is funny there definitely. Like anytime Mike does the racist Chinese Chef "You want Sweet Sour Soup while waiting for Tasty Noodle?" But really this just an excuse to shit on the film. Almost literally. One scene Kevin is just saying Horseshit,.. Bullshit.., and another where Kevin does nothing but retch into a bucket for the entire scene. And multiple scenes where both Mike and Kevin talk about slitting their wrists.
I don't recommend it, but it's Episode 1, so you know everyone wants to see it anyway.

There used to be a sign here that said 'if you can't see this sign then it got washed away.'
What happened to it?
Jabba ate it.


Star Wars Episode 2

Lucas,  how many times have I told you to stay away from word processors?!

This Rifftrax is significantly better than the one for Episode 1, but they do still rely on 'lets just shit on the film rather than be funny' a fair bit. Chad Vader is used sparingly and was an alright edition. Overall an okay rifftrax.

I like the water.

----------

I smell another academy award for Meryl Streep!

Star Wars Episode 3

These guys are as handy with weapons as the guys who used to shoot at the A-Team.

Another ok Riff. Good to have Bill on board for this one. Still a little bit too much of the just shitting on the film rather than making funny. I really hope this attitude doesn't carry over to the riffs of 4,5, & 6 which I haven't seen before. Also quite a few repeat riffs. Like telling dick head guy to put some pants on it.

This "My Wife Dies" video game eats.

---------------------------

We now return to "She's not the oracle, she's the handler", already in progress...

Aeon Flux

I'd love to get one of those wall sphincters for my rec room.

This is my type of riff, a goofy film with just enough budget to not look pathetic. Mike and Kevin are having fun with the film and not just shitting on it the whole time. An easy one to recommend to fans.

She's unarmed but at all times ready to take a water sample.

House on Haunted Hill -  I was a bit disappointed in this one.  A few chuckles here and there but no real LOL moments. So many of the jokes were focused on the Big Valley guy and most of those backfired for me. Plus, the trio didn't seem as into it as usual. One of the weaker trax.

Would you care for a siditiv? I wish you would take a siditiv.  I liked the live version of House on Haunted Hill, though I don't know if it was the house or the hill that was haunted.  The live version was a lot of fun for me.  I enjoyed the Lance riffs.  I'm glad someone besides me recognized him from The Big Valley!

The movie was so cheesy, yet trying to be scary.  The leprechaun guy was funny. (Yer after me Lucky Charms, aren't ye?!) Vincent Price was great...as in "Wow, this cheese is great," great.    Did you watch the live, or studio version?

I finally watched Ravens too, and didn't really like the riff. Then I watched Kingdom of the Spiders and really liked it. I've noticed that a lot of the really weird old movies they do tend to have (IMO) poor riffs. I feel like they do better with "better made" movies.

Also, can I get a gif of Shatner catching and immediately throwing the child? That got a pretty big laugh out of me.

That was a good one, if you are talking about the movie I think you are talking about.  Did it have that guy from Sidehackers (that was number 5!) as a gas station attendant?  If so, that movie made me cry with laughter.  The pilot that gets killed by the spiders floored me.  That insanely "girlish" scream was TOO funny!

Oh okay, those are still Rifftrax. I think they aren't as good as most of the newer ones though.

Eh only retroactively, and of course some were replaced later on by 3 man riffs.

Swamp of Ravens.

Holy Moly, seriously what was that film. It was pretty decent riff. But given the genuinely grotesque and disturbing nature of the imagery, it's hard to recommend it to everyone. I mean was that a real autopsy?

Man this is what Rifftrax were made for stupid movies that take themselves far too seriously. Seriously this is one goofy movie that deserved everything it got. This is a pretty solid Rifftrax. I think this is one that you could show new people and they would get a good idea of what Rifftrax is about. Some good singing by Kevin. Marky Mark sets up for some hilarious impersonations.

An early Mike and Kevin trax that is well worth a look. Harrison Ford sleep walks through a hostage/bank heist, and a majority of the laughs are built around him, especially his age and his career. The movie is competent, but never rises to anything noteworthy.

Oh and of course a few Indiana Jones 4 gags before it was actually a thing!

Missile to the Moon riff with Mike and Fred Willard. The riff was...okay. A few really good lines, although it felt more sparse than they usually do. Unfortunately Fred just didn't do a great job here. It felt like he was out of his element. Or just didn't have a lot of time to practice his lines, maybe. I wish they'd get him back for another riff, he certainly can do better than this.

Wow.  I hate to admit it, but I only discovered Rifftrax a few years ago. My first purchase here was in 2011! 

  And I have obviously NOT been watching them in chronological order.  In fact, Mike "busted" me, when I asked him about either, "sharpie a wang on the forehead," or, "Bacon loving," or some other running gag, that I can't recall  Regardless of the subject his busted me on, his comment was, "We haven't done that in two years." 

That was the first clue I was watching out of order, and am still basically a noob to Rifftrax, even though I've made 150 purchases here.   

What I am getting at is, I thought Daredevil was a fairly NEW release.  It was the first with all three riffers?  Wow!

So, after my upcoming RoninFoxTrax of Star Trek: TMP,  I'n going to watch Daredevil.

This was pretty good. I can actually see how this works as a horror film, it's low on gore and jump scares. But there is also a lot of goofiness about it. I don't watch enough horror films to know just how stereotypical is the 'Do everything you are told not to do' angle is. I thought I recognized the lead actress, but it turns out she's done bugger all besides the Paranormal Activity series.

The Island of Dr. Moreau

Mike and Kevin did an amazing job on this one.  The movie was as bad as anything on MST3K or a VOD with the added value of starring an actor with perhaps the biggest name (and other attributes) in film history.  Sadly, the movie was riffed before the Harry Potter films, or it could have been better, given David Thewlis went on to play a man-beast himself.  At first, I was mad at myself, that I purchased a full-screen version by accident, but it actually made the movie cheesier, if you can imagine.

Great Riffing.  Lots of laughs.  I recommend this one.


Random addition:  I purchased several movies along with this one, because I want to complete the entire blockbuster library.  In the next few weeks, I will be reauthoring...

Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope

So this is how they filled in time before pod races.

It had been a long time since I watched Star Wars. It's funny how excellent some of the effects are (the new CGI ships) and how terrible some are (the new Jabba, and the large lizards). This is a pretty good rifftrax, not gut busting funny, but good. There is plenty of mileage made from dredging up the prequels and their incongruities with the old films. A little too much of the 'random names from wookiepedia' though. Enjoyable.

This movie sucked.  I mean really sucked.  Was the boyfriend supposed to be a protagonist or antagonist?  What was with the matrixy slo mo sections?  Who knew Vanilla Ice and Britney Spears would seem competent in their ill advised movie outings by comparison to Mariah Carrey?

But what a Riff.  Mike and Mary Jo killed it.  So many great jokes.

I think this is the first MP3 riff I've watched in 3-4 years, looking though the archive I was pretty confident I could pick the jokes that would be beaten into the ground (silly names in Hunger Games, Hawkeye in Avengers, etc, etc) but I crossed my fingers they'd gotten over the 'hey, this movie is bad' stuff that made me turn off the prequel riffs. 

Happily I was right, the Toho/Toto/Toto bit was inspired and if anything they ignored the obviously dated CGI to run with the movie itself, the Ebert jokes in the movie and in the riff worked for me since I thought he was awful, Gobbledy Gooker reference, downplaying people actually saying 'go go go'. PAAAAAAAACKERS & my balls are on fire.

As much as I hate the term "torture porn" (because it is coined by people who have NO IDEA what they are talking about), I do agree. It is definitely in the modern era of realistic gore for the sake of grossing out the audience, at the expense of plot.

ROAD muthafuckin HOUSE!

Last night I re-watched the one that started it all... and still eight years later... one of the very best I've ever had the pleasure of watching. It's a Mike solo effort, so if your into the guys going off on their little conversational tangents, this might not rank as highly for you... But even flying solo, Mike delivers quantity and quality, almost all of his riffs hit the mark... This is truly a stripped down essence of the form. Just one guy and one movie, either the riffs are there or they aren't. He gets a lot of help from the source movie. Perhaps the greatest riff fodder source movie ever made. The perfect storm of earnest, goofball entertainment... Swayze hamming up shirtless karate practice, Gazzarra skipping right past chewing and basically inhaling the scenery... They don't make em like this anymore, the perfect B-movie... Highly recommended.

If I get the time tonight, I'm continuing down the Mike solo wayback machine with Point Break... another one that I fondly remember but haven't watched in years.

Finally got around to R.O.T.O.R. WOW. That movie is the gift that keeps on giving. So often, with these cheesy '80s sci-fi trainwrecks, there are one or two wonderfully goofy scenes, and then the rest of the movie is just bland and painful. R.O.T.O.R. does not stop with the goofy. I needed to catch my breath! EVERY. SCENE. has a lapse in logic, a goofy special effect, a mugging comedy relief character, or a wonderfully inexplicable line of dialogue. It just didn't let up!

I didn't like "Ghosthouse" when I first saw it. It was a bad movie and I thought Mike, Bill, and Kevin missed all the good beats, at first... then I watched it again... and again... and now it is one of my favourites.

I can only assume they have hypnotized me in some way. And, this leads me to the logical conclusion that they are Reptiloids from another dimension or Zeta Reticulli depending on which documentary on the History Channel2 that you believe.

Clearly, there is no other conclusion one can draw. These men are reptilian aliens.

I actually enjoyed the movie more than the Riff on that one. It seemed like it should have been a riff gold mine but the guys never really seemed to hit the zone on it. Unfortunately I feel this way about most, not all, of the more recent riffs. I can't really tell if the riff quality is worse or if I'm just starting to burn out on it. I liked the two with Lash LaRue but I found The Kiss of the Tarantula to be one of the most disappointing riffs in a long time.

Hulu is a godsend on a sick day.

Supersonic Man
The phrase "a poor man's Puma Man" is one of those statements that induces the brain chemistry equivalent of a divide by zero error. It can't have an answer, yet here it is. Although probably not as much goofball fun as Puma Man, either with the source movie itself or the riffing, this one has plenty of laughs. I'm having a Schlitz and Coke.

Rifftrax Live: Manos
A nice new take on the old classic. The audience laughter adds to the experience and the two shorts included were both a lot of fun as well. You really can't go wrong riffing Manos...

I agree, the Live riff was good. But it's essentially a lateral move from the episode. Which is why I've always said, if they are going to re-riff movies from MST3K they should be doing ones from KTMA and Season 1.

Yeah, and while it isn't inherently bad to reriff, the original is so branded into my brain it feels wrong.  It's sort of like when you are used to one version a song and then the same singer sings it live or something and he goes a different way.  Sometimes it can be even better than the studio version, but sometimes it would feel... off.

I guess there's no chance of Mitchell being riffed,  ah-hahahaha!  I would like to see another Shortstravaganza.  Shorts are cool, shorts are always cool.

Anyway,  I just finished watching Teenage Mutant Blah Blah Blurtles. Fun riff, but, wow, the movie blew!  If I was a kid, I'd probably like it.  But, being about as old as sand, it blew...it blew like sand in a hurricane.

Post by: Nunyerbiz on March 03, 2015, 06:18:56 AM
Yea, I don't disagree with the idea that re-riffing a classic seems redundant... And I wasn't excited enough about it at the time to go see it at the theater... But it was still a worthy overall effort. A few lines here and there from the original popped into my head along the way, but I ended up enjoying it more than I thought I would. I think part of it was just the audience chuckling at things that were riff-free... like long pauses and awkward cuts... Less the crowd participation, this probably would have dropped a notch.

Indiana Jones and the Skull thingy.   Great riff, bad movie.  Somewhere on the forum, is an article about Shia Lebouf apologizing about his acting during this movie.  I must say, he was no worse than Harrison Ford himself.   

The plot, camerawork were typical of the Stealburg/Pukus line of crapbuster movie And oh, GOD!!  That awful music. It's that really, really shitty guy, that did starwars and whatnot, that everyone thinks is great music, but really, really sucks and makes me want to puke and vomit everytime I hear a single note of his shitty, shitty, craptacular effing shitty music!!!  :grr:

I seem to have gone astray on my review. Ahem.   The movie blew petrified dinosaur snot, OK? 

But, with the riff, ah...blood pressure drops, and I start laughing.  But, then I remember Staw Wars, and that BASTARD John Williams and his effing  Da da da dun ta da dun ta da, every time Dart Vader even THINKS about walking! I mean, Damn! Even when Darth Vader dies, you hear this slow, mournful effing bells chiming effing  Da da da dun ta da dun ta da!  What is wrong with you?!

I seem to have gotten distracted again. Fuck you, John EFFING Williams, and your shitty, shitty, music!  Watch the Riff of  Indian Jones and the kingdom of the Crystal Skull.  It's funny! Damn!

I actually have a lot of respect for Williams as a composer...  But, anyway...  I just finished watching:

Anaconda

This riff is honestly one of their best.  I had more laugh-out-loud moments that Godzilla and TMNT combined.  I had forgotten how truly bad this movie was, but the guys did an amazing job with it.  Really surprising, given it was a stretch goal, and kind of the afterthought of last year's Kickstarter.

Disembaudio's intro was so awesome.  Seriously, guys, let the little... whatever he is... out of the closet every once in a while.

I really loved their riffs on the many continuity errors.  These aren't usually ver funny, but they did great.

Also, Bill's Owen Wilson impression.  "It's just comm(bubble-bubble)on sen(bubble-bubble)se..."

I re-authored this one last night. I haven't had a chance to watch it all, but from the 2/3 of the film I've watched so far, I agree that this is a top notch riff. This film is a riffer's goldmine.

Anaconda.  Lots of fun. Caught a lot of jokes I missed watching the live show. I really like the cheesiness of the film.  The hammy acting was great.  Jon Voight's character was excellent- Clearly mad, clearly evil, clearly excessively cheesy,  yet everyone follows his every word, as soon as they see him.  The backwards waterfall and the magic fish were bonus laughs, because of a word called, "continuity."  How lucky was the male protagonist, to have to pretend to be unconscious for 85% of the film? Even I can pretend to be unconscious.  :highfive:

The Room.   I probably made a mistake watching this before the live version.  Why?  Disembaudio and his pals!

Dis and his pals cover the gamut: Sex change, addiction to horse tranquilizers, multiple murders and a dash of attempted felony in-studio strong-arm robbery.  Dis and his friends were the perfect distraction from the all-too-frequent sex scenes in this otherwise touching tale of utter betrayal and disloyalty. 

How will Mike, Bill and Kevin top Disembaudio and his friends? I don't know.  I'll just have to have faith. 

Anyway, The Room is hilarious. I finally understand why everyone wants an Ohai t-shirt.  I'll wear mine with pride, as I steal my next bale of hay.  :)

Rifftrax Presents - Warning from Space

I don't usually go in for the Matthew J Elliott stuff. His writing is good, but his delivery is too deadpan. He needed someone to banter with so he wasn't just talking to himself. So the addition of a second riffer, Ian Potter, really helps. And it's hard to pass up a movie like this, a movie so.. stereotypically 50's Japanese sci-fi. May take some getting used to if you've never tried one of his riffs before, but this is definitely a good one to start with. Very unlike the usual MKB stuff, but variety can be good. One reason why I support iRiffers.

In short, worth spending the $8 on. (Plus 15% off Memorial Day sale this weekend)

I just finished Giant of Marathon. If you haven't seen the Film Crew stuff, you should check it out. It's just as good as the Rifftrax VoDs, plus HOST SEGMENTS! Giant of Marathon is my favorite of the Film Crew. It also helps that, because these are so old, they don't have the same references and running jokes that Rifftrax has.

Titanic

Everything leading up to the ship sinking was riffing gold. Watching events unfold and listening to jokes after the collision with the iceberg was tough to sit through.

My favorite Titanic joke ever ever ever, but takes a bit of explanation first:

In the Navy one of the important safety drills is what to do when a man falls overboard. Since life expectancy in cold water is short, being able to get the person back on board fast is vital. So we practice it ALL the time. To make practice easier, ship's crews make up a rescue dummy like this (http://i.imgur.com/Xq0T4A2.jpg)

Since the "man overboard" flag is the signal flag for "O" or "Oscar", then of course the dummy is lovingly referred to as "Oscar."

Got that?

So... now that it will be completely unfunny after that setup, but in the interest of completeness:

"Hey, didn't Titanic win Oscars for everything? Everyone got one, right?"
"Not Leonardo DiCaprio"
"Well that's because Leo *was* the Oscar..."

I've been collecting Rifftrax DVDs for years, but just got into buying VoDs this past year. I'm poor now, but happy! I've binged on more than I can mention, but these are some favorites.

Star Wars Holiday Special - finally saw this in its entirety, after being intrigued by the Cinema Snob and Nostalgia Critic reviews. SO worth it, even if I had to explain to my husband I bought the Star Wars Holiday Special on a Life Day sale, which is possibly the geekiest thing I've ever said to anyone.

Swamp of the Ravens - my favorite Rifftrax so far! I love how dark and creepy it is and the guys' reactions to it, especially that crazy robot song. "Yeah!"

The Last Shark - got this hoping for some Devil Fish-esque fun, and was not disappointed. An awesome display of moustacherie.

Ruby  - I could easily watch this unriffed, but it's always nice to have friends along.

Santa and the Fairy Snow Queen short - nothing like kicking off the holidays with a good old fashioned acid trip.

And now I find myself with a $100 gift card to use during the next sale - any recommendations for more VoDs? I have all the DVDs, and some of the popular ones like Megaforce and Cool as Ice. I like cheesy horror and action, especially 70s/80s.

Guy From Harlem,
Ghosthouse (a cautionary tale about the dangers of not realizing you can just leave)
ROTOR (It's ROTOR, nuff said)
Wonder Women (for the absolute best chase sequence ever put on film)
Santa and the Ice Cream Bunny (I prefer the Thumbelina version)

Jurassic World.

I hadn't seen the movie, because I knew it would be, well, a lot like what it was. Really cliched characters, a forced as hell romance, and I'm not proud of this but I really wanted to punch that younger brother. Like, a lot and really hard.

Most people found Force Awakens to be derivative, but it could've easily been THIS!

The Rifftrax was really funny, though, it's the only reason I would've watched this movie.

Vanilla Ice Movie and  Plan 9 from outer space.

Vanilla Ice is a trip back in time and each joke was hilarious.  I'm still a big fan of the Ice and watch his house design  shows. 

Plan 9 is great comedy as you'd expect it.   (my husband loves black and white sci-fi  so it's great.)

Truck Song. I know we say this a lot about the weird shorts that Rifftrax finds, but WHO WAS THIS FOR?!!!

Santa Claus live show. I've been avoiding most of the Xmas shows the last few years because of a loss in my family that happened days before Xmas.

I thought I could get through this one in August and it was great see the riffing of the dream sequence, but I only made it halfway through. Lupita looks so much like my mother did when she was a kid. There are even pictures of her with the same haircut.

Well, just today I created a Sync File for Mothra, so if you have the DVD and a computer with a DVD Drive, you can play it in the riff player! If you want the Sync file, go into the New Riffplayer forum.

Godzilla (1998). The first time I watched it, I watched it unriffed in the movie theaters. I bought the DVD just to hear it riffed. I especially love the NYC-centric jokes in this one (even if some of them are stereotypical if not entirely untrue, à la the "Brooklyn has hipsters" riff).

Megaforce.  What an odd movie.  I couldn't understand what was going on, so I looked up the Wikipedia plot summary.  After that, I STILL couldn't figure out what was going on.

So the Megaforce came in, destroyed one small town, and then left?  Even though the enemy Colonel offered them a chance to leave peacefully, they still had to fight their way through a column of tanks?

And I never thought I'd see an action movie that was even less focused than a Michael Bey movie.

Yeah, me too. I hated that bit in the movie! They were trying to show him as being a jerk for insulting her shoes, and her as strong an capable because she defied him. YOU CAN'T WALK IN MUD WITH HEELS! It just doesn't work, regardless of how "strong and independent" you are!

Psychotronic Man.

I've been on the move so finally catching up with the last 3 or so. This one was a solid 8, a truly bizarre gem of a movie that was fun to watch, but the riffing was a little lackluster/uninspired at times. To be fair the movie doesn't give them much to work with seeing as there is zero character development and barely any human relationships at all. The long chase at the end reminded me of Incredible Melting Man. I kept expecting to hear a "Steve!" at some point.

Birdemic: Live edition.

It's been a while since I watched Birdemic, but I think I full and unironically hate this movie now.  If it were just produced poorly, I could put it into the "so bad it's good" category, but the story makes so little sense and the moralizing is so heavy handed that I just can't stand it any more.  It seems like it's supposed to be a ripoff of The Birds, but in that movie people actually attempted to avoid the birds by staying inside.  In this movie, as soon as birds start attacking people, our heroes immediately go on some long, directionless drive around California, stopping several times to have picnics.  Their van seems to get about 3 miles per gallon, and they are constantly hungry.  The plot just made so little sense that it was just insulting.

Also watched Hawk The Slayer yesterday.  What was that?  Jack Palance is a good actor.  Why was he in this awful movie giving such an awful performance?  It made no sense.

Oblivion.

This movie is so camp it might not have worked as a riff but the writing was good and most importantly the guys seemed to be really enjoying themselves. Solid riff!
My God, this thing was shot in Bucharest. I guess that explains the ceiling fans? Maybe not.
I think the verb for making the kind of appearance, long after their career has ended, that Catwoman, Sulu, and one of the greatest singers who ever lived (hey, if all you've heard is Shaft go back and listen to some of his other early 70's work) make here should be called John Carradin-ing.

OBLIVION - Dear God this movie is so BORING! They really did just make a western, complete with every bad western cliche. In fact, the only thing they stole from something else was the frog creature's "he who knows fear burns at the touch of the Mondane" which is a blatant ripoff from Man-Thing. Which they didn't even use when the frog bit the guy.

The riff was pretty funny, though.

Farm Family in Winter
Farm Family in Autumn
Farm Family in Spring
Let's Talk Turkey
The Calendar and how to use it
The Hothead and the forgetter

They were all riffed pretty well but I liked "The Calendar and how to use it" the most because it's just SOOO 80's... it... was from the 80's, right? That's also what I really liked about "Flash that smile". While I'm on the subject, I'd like to thank Mary Jo and Bridget for making a Duran Duran joke in that short.

Okay so just bought three new Rifftrax shorts:
The Tiny Astronaut
Nobody tells me what to do
Don't get angry

Not sure what the purpose of The Tiny Astronaut was, me thinks it was something sponsored by animal rights activists or something. Nobody tells me what to do obviously takes place in the 1980's and tells the story of some kids who constantly get in trouble for having the aforementioned attitude. I guess it does have kind of a good lesson in it but... it doesn't have much in the way of a satisfactory wrap up to the whole story. I guess the producers just thought the lesson would just be kind of self-evident, and it is... to a degree.
Don't get angry... well this one looks like it came straight out of the 1950's and is much more focused on having a relevant lesson: don't get angry!

This is up there with "The Room (2016 Live Riff)", "The Wizard", and "Mothra" as one of Rifftrax's best. If MST3K had done this, it would have been a classic that was up there with Pod People and The Final Sacrifice.

I just bought two MST3K classics from Rifftrax, Parts: the Clonus Horror and Hobgoblins. Speaking of them as just individual movies, the former is easily better than the later, but both of them are still bad. To be fair though, I'd much rather watch Parts than The Island. Hobgoblins has a special place in my heart though... it is easily one of the most inept, most unappealing films of all time. As bad as it is though, I just can't bring myself to name it as worst film of all time. I still think that honor belongs to Manos, be it a dubious honor.

I haven't seen it in probably like 10 years, so I bought the MST3K episode "Horror at Party Beach" and watched it last night. I hope Rifftrax gets more rights to episodes to buy DRM free because that way I can watch them(without having to be online) on my PS3. I'd really like to see Master Ninja 2, Riding with Death, The Mole people, and Prince of Space. I know Master Ninja 2 and Prince of Space are available on Amazon, but I just prefer having the episodes DRM free.

Bought and watched Invasion of the Animal People. First time in years I regretted my lost ten bucks. To be fair, the movie was the species of bad that doesn't spur good riffage...lots of long scenes with nothing happening, really bad sound quality (to get the jokes, you have to be able to hear what dialog lines they're riffing on...) black and white (though that hasn't been an obstacle at other times.)

This could have used one of Kevin's great songs...SEVERAL of them might have saved this.

Wasn't thrilled with the Oblivion movies but I did laugh at them here and there. I can't remember a time I got me a Rifftrax that I had to watch twice in 24 hours because I fell asleep the first time...in broad daylight. Invasion of the Animal People (misnamed much?) wins this award.

Hope the next one's better.

I don't see the point in going back and redoing old MST3K material. The world has a shit-ton of bad films to riff. It's sort of a drag to see retreads. Just my two cents, or dollars, of course...since it is 2018, and my opinion's worth has time inflation like everything else...plus as the older I get, the more experienced and knowledgeable, and thus fussier I get.

The Godmonster of Indian Flats. I'm definitely keeping this one on my phone, because it's entertaining for its weirdness and badness (rather than revolting or boring for its badness) and the riffs are exceptionally well done, especially "Wu-tang Clan ain't mutton to f*** with!"

Replica. Nguyen's most incoherent work yet?, Hard to say since none of them really are.

Seriously. Santa and the Ice Cream Bunny probably had more convincing acting. Even the Guy From Harlem, and that includes actors whose volume control is out of whack.

Does he have no friends that saw his first two movies, and when he announced he was going for a third, they couldn't talk him down?

Sons of Hercules. Really fun and underrated, has a lot of the feel of an old MST ep. Worth it for the goofy song riffs alone.

Just watched Future Zone on Amazon Prime.

I don't know if it was the riffing or the fact I was falling asleep, but the movie was actually pretty watchable to me.

Remember being disappointed with the riff the first time I watched it. Not sure why, because I watched it with the wife last night (her first viewing of it) and we both laughed a lot.

My problem with that one was video quality- there are much better versions of the movie available, but the Rifftrax release looked like a 50th generation VHS copy. Had started it several times before making it all the way through.

Replica was actually his second movie.
Jack and Julia (2003)
Replica (2005)
Birdemic (2010)
i don't think either of the first 2 were seen by many before Rifftrax (Birdemic had gotten a following before Rifftrax).
Haven't seen Birdemic 2 (his 4th and last-of of today-movie) as everything I've read about it is that everyone involved including Nguyen understands it's bad and it was made with to be intentionally bad, so that kind of kills the vibe.

I dunno... I saw it, and I couldn't distinguish between it's intentional badness and the unintentional badness of the first one.  I think possibly the actors were too wooden to wink at the camera convincingly.

Fun in Balloonland

I don't know if the narrator is turned on, high, or being held at gunpoint; but this riff is a gay ol' time.

On a side note, I just spent money on Fun in Baloonland and not some Oscar award winning movie. I feel like I'm the end of a devious MST3k/Rifftrax experiment that actually worked. That there was some plot to make me buy bad movies and I fell for it hook, line, and sinker.

No Retreat, No Surrender on Twitch today.
Remembered it, but didn't remember enjoying it as much when it came out. Everything about it made it perfect for riffing- bad 80s clothing and generic 80s movie music, silly plot that takes karate way too seriously, mafia that does things that the mafia wouldn't really do (like agree to settle a protection racket dispute with a karate tournament and call the press to publicize it).

Ready Player One. I had reached the conclusion on my own a while ago but today I finished it with my life coach. What a perfectly riffable movie and far too many hilarious on-point riffs.

One of Rifftrax's best alongside ROTOR, The Wizard, and Mothra. If you don't have Ready Player One, get the riff, and if you're feeling feisty enough, maybe buy it on Blu-Ray or DVD so you could watch it with the commentary to remove the pain of actually watching the movie unriffed.

I'd never checked out Retro Puppet Master before, and it was on Amazon Prime, so we took the plunge. That is a weird movie. It's weird how they never made it clear where the puppets were in relation to anything else. Like if they were stop-motion or something I could see why they'd film them separately, but they're PUPPETS. Like- Especially simple puppets. So they could be puppeteered, one assumes.

Rescue Me.

Best riff of the year so far (sorry M,K, and B). B and MJ were on top of their game and the movie was just so dumb. Dumb when it tried to be a comedy and dumb when it tried to be buddy-bonding serious It's the best riff the ladies have done so far. Fantastic!

She

Also, excellent. I hadn't seen this campy film before. Some of the production design was impressive but what fun. A good riff.

Ice Cream Man

The tone of the movie was all off for this one to be very funny. Played straight like Jack Frost but still winking at the audience too much. Never the best material for rifftrax.

Friend got an 80" samsung, and thus got the rifftax 24 hour streaming channel and we binged with some others. So here we go.

Alien Outlaws: I forgot how awesome that was. It was a bad movie in a way that was easy to make fun of. Go out and get this if you don't have it. Lash LaRue forever, Bay Bay.

Angels Revenge: An MST remake by the ladies. It was not all that strong an entry back in MST, and it's still not here. Worth a watch, but not that highly ranked.

Cyber Tracker: I forgot how not good this was. Part of it was this was a poorly done movie in a way it's hard to make effective humor of. Future Zone, and even Dark Future are far superior to this. I'd actually recommend moving this toward the bottom of your list of buys, it was that weak.

Rock N Roll Nightmare: A 10. Everyone laughed their head off at this and it was an awesome way to end the evening, despite the gorilla blocking all the good parts since the channel has a no nudity rating. This is a classic and I would list it as a must have. Also, amazon and ebay do not seem to have spiked underwear for men. Only spiked bras for women for some reason. Sexist pigs.

To Catch a Yeti:  Finally caught this one.  This is a weird mix of a movie that is among the most unwatchable (35 minutes in I was pleading with the movie to end) movies with some great riffs (about 35 minutes in is also when the MKB are playing at their a-game).  Also, holy shit to they gloss over that this kid wants to murder a girl.

Drawing for Beginners - The Triangle - It's hard for me to be too critical of something made so long ago, but this is super, super basic.

Devil Girls from Mars.

Can you imagine watching this as the stage play it originally was? I'm assuming it never made the West End but toured some dismal seaside towns that Morrisey evokes so well in his songs...the audience must have cracked up, I think, even back then.

MJ and B were really into this one. The riffs were hilarious even during the stagey, talkie parts and when Devil dominatrix "girl" entered the scene or whenever her ship or robot showed up--pure comedy gold.
I must see. One of their best.

Hadn't seen it before unriffed. Not good, but watchable with the riff. Actor who played Han never once made me think of Harrison Ford and while a straight Harrison Ford impersonation might have come across as pandering, a little Harrison Ford slipping through would have been welcome. The best thing I can say about it was that it wasn't as bad as those terrible Avenger movie that people here on this forum think are great but are even more unwatchable and less entertaining.

Star Wars Holiday Special  followed by Fun In Balloon Land.

A Talking Cat!?! is a movie that truly earns its question mark.

The score is baffling. Why La Cucaracha? There was nothing remotely Mexcian nor cockroach related going on.

Also, was I the only one totally caught off-guard by the magic collar thing? I can not remember it being mentioned before it was brought up in the 3rd act.

2nd Mary Jo and Bridget Sherlock Holmes movie riff. Wasn't really looking forward to it because while I thought the riff of the first was good, the movie was just didn't interest me much. This was more or less the same movie with logic in play that wasn't really logical and I really enjoyed it. So despite contradicting myself and my interest in the movie, I hope that they do a 3rd Sherlock Holmes movie (I'm assuming numerous of these Sherlock Holmes movies were made) and that the movie will be the same as the same as the first 2.

Reign of Fire
Was trying to find one I hadn't seen before and this was the only one I could find (there are probably a couple of more, but there aren't many). Released as a riff in 2006. Movie from 2002. Mike and Kevin only. No Bill. Christian Bale pre-Batman and Matthew McConaughey in a terrible dragon movie. Wouldn't make my list of favorite riffs, but really enjoyed it and made me nostalgic for the early days of Rifftrax when everything was a "just the jokes" release that needed to be synced. I get that VODs make more money so that's the direction things will continue, but I really wish that we'd get more "just the jokes" of bad movies like this instead of just Star Wars movies.

Gammera The Invincible. I liked the MST3K version better. It had better riffing and Joel explicitly said that he liked the movie, and even though I'm sure Mike and Bill love GTI as much as Sandy Frank's distribution of Gamera, Sandy Frank's version was in color and had anglicized names, which made it more digestible (and paradoxically more riffable).

Post by: George-2.0 on January 25, 2019, 05:11:35 PM
Gammera The Invincible - despite its popularity, the MST version was never a real knockout for me. Good, with some top notch skits, but not brilliant. So for me, this one isn't the weak sister of the two. I like getting a different version of the movie, and of course the new quips. Maybe not a complete laugh-riot, but fun and funny.

Also Mind Ripper and Honor and Glory

And a bunch of shorts. The funniest... A Day with Fireman Bill, Six Murderous Beliefs and What Mary Jo Wanted (with MJ and Bridget)

And with the current weekend sale I pretty much cleared out my wishlist. I picked up 19 Trax (features and shorts) so plenty to look forward to.

Reign of Fire actually spends a couple minutes referencing Star Wars too!  ;D ;D

I decided to look at the past 20 Just the Jokes riffs to see how that criticism holds up. There are only 3, but that reaches back to the past 6 years. They really don't release Just the Jokes often enough imo. My guess is they make more money with VODs, so I can't really blame them.

So, my friend has a new TV that included the rifftrax network thing. They saw Fun in Balloonland for the first time, which we all loved. Which was then followed by Rollargator which opens with
"Rollargator, because we didn't think we could get you to watch Fun in Balloonland either."

Whoever decided on the play order was a genius.

Mothra - The disc I have is the Japanese release, so obviously that wouldn't work... but I did find a copy in English - and I pretty much got it synched up from the start. So no adjustments, just kicked back and enjoyed. I liked it a lot at the start, but felt it faded down the stretch (or maybe I just got tired). Wish I'd have been able to have made it to the theater and saw it with a crowd.

Naturally A Girl - I was in stitches start to finish. Killer work from B&MJ.

I also picked up Beyond Christmas and Deadly Instincts, so I have more from the ladies to look forward to.

Krull - I finally got time to sit down and watch this. I even remembered some riffs from the live show (since it's basically a re-recording of the live show). I really enjoyed this one.

Good show, but where was Mike? Liked that Frank and Trace got time to do three straight shorts and they were all new to me shorts, but it was kind of Frank on his own as Trace's voice was shot and half the time when he did riff you couldn't understand him. Sean Thomason filled in for Mary Jo with Bridget and did fine but seemed to lack some confidence that he had no reason to lack. Despite my apparent criticisms, enjoyed it more than some of the other Sketchfests and still really glad they release these as the chances of me ever going to one live are slim to none.

I had to put on earbuds in order to catch what Trace was saying, it really helped. And man the audience just lost it over the Cautious Twins. Very funny work. I thought Janet and Cole were hilarious too. Despite missing some MVPs (and 1 losing his voice) this was a goodie.

I watched She Demons
It's another classic from B&MJ. And another goodie from Richard E. Cunha. Between this and Missile to the Moon I think Rifftrax needs to do more Cunha. Frankenstein's Daughter cries out for a riffing.

Shorts Marathon!

Started with What Mary Jo Wanted and then watched every release from World of Tupperware to Tommy's Day.

What Mary Jo Wanted is one of their best. A classic I'd say from MJ and B.

Every short was excellent but the standouts were Farm Animals and Tommy's Day. The latter was so weird for a film about losing a tooth. If that's what it was about. Maybe it was a cautionary tale about letting your sister watch your bathroom routine.

Jack and the Giant Killer: Live This was one of those movies, like Magic Sword, which wasn't actually bad. It was very standard for the genre, which was popular for a time. The riffs were fun, much like... Magic Sword's were. So this is a rare case of a work that can be enjoyed on two levels.

Scared to Death.

Another top notch riff from MJ and B. There was so much stupidity to riff here. The rollskating in the parking garage scene, the acting, the everything. Rick Springfield made the right decision career-wise but personally, I would love to have acted in this film.

High School Hero.

My least favorite in this series. Freddy Steps Out is the best. Not enough musical numbers in the movie--their riffing really comes alive during those. And why did they make the annoying kid the central character in this?. Were audience members screaming out for more (what ever his name was)?

Ok, finally going to get to Blood Theatre tonight.

Just got back from RiffTrax Live Star Raiders since there's no child board yet. This was really special, because it's the first time my dad & I got to attend one together. He's a fan of MST3k but hasn't gone to a show since Plan 9. We had a blast. Really funny stuff and laughed all the way home reminiscing our favorite lines which included:

"I saw something shiny and my foot is stuck in a hole!"
"Hey, it was Captain Lou Albano under there the whole time."
"Hold on, Casper! We're still filming! Come back!"
"I'm gonna go over there and lay down on a hot rock."
"These are great special effects for 1992." / "This was made 18 months ago!"

All the Casper Van Diem stuff (well, a lot of him didn't even need riffing). The zit-head guy. And EVERY. SINGLE. Crotalus line was THE BEST like "Does she have two mouths?" "Anyway your dad is dead over there." "Who clogged the toilet!? A horse must've gone in there!"

Of course I'm sure I'm forgetting some and will remember more later. Anyway, very fun!

This one had some really good bits but as a whole was only an 8. I felt the same way I do about Hobgoblins. The movies is already such a camp knows it's dumb comedy there's not enough to play off.

Zombie/I EAT YOUR SKIN. This is one of the better B&W movies Rifftrax & MST3K have taken on. Even so, the Spanish in the movie is noticeably Un-Caribbean (I can tell because I live in NYC and my sister lives in Miami, so we come in contact with a lot of Puerto Ricans, Dominicans, and Cubans, and their Spanish is VERY unlike the Spanish used in the movie).

Did a double feature of older riffs: Nightmare at Noon and Hawk the Slayer. Nightmare is one of their stronger efforts, and the film was so awful (outside of a fun helicopter chase that had no place in this film) The troika of Wings Houser, Bo Hopkins, and George Kennedy made for comedic gold. They each had their own style of awful all crowded into an ill thought film. I'd give it a ten, but not an official 'classic' like ROTOR.

Hawk the Slayer, in theory this could have been another Deathstalker and the Warriors from Hell, especially with Palance chewing the scenery, but it was missing something. Enjoyable, but not Nightmare, or Warriors of the Lost World which was also another really amusing one with a number of the same supporting actors.
