Title: List the top 10 films you'd want riffed
Post by: MisterC on January 20, 2007, 03:21:21 PM
10. Spider-Man
The lame acting in Uncle Ben's death scene never fails to make me laugh.
9. SWAT
The riff in Daredevil reminded me of this stupid film.  It'd be a good followup.
8. Zoolander
I was actually forced to watch this during a school break one day.  I don't think I've ever been happier to hear a school bell ring.  Ben Stiller playing an even bigger idiot and all the godawful 80's songs thrown in just made it even more painful.
7. Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!  Do I need to say more?  Besides, we still need a prequel that actually has Hayden.
6. Die Another Day
Invisible cars, evil Englishmen who are actually Korean criminals bent on world domination, and surfing secret agents.  If that doesn't make a Bond film worthy of a Rifftrax, I don't know what well.
5. Any of the Mission Impossible movies
Tom Cruise.  Tom Cruise.  And Tom Cruise.  Take your pick.
4. Batman Begins
Christian Bale's "chainsmoker" Batman voice would make a riffing quite entertaining.
3. Super Mario Bros.
We need a Dennis Hopper movie here somewhere, so why shouldn't it be the film that deficates the most beloved video game character of all time?
2. Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Before the TV show with the Grudge girl, before the spinoff with the guy from Bones, we had this interesting little film that starred Kirsty Swanson, best known for her moving performances in films such as Dude, Where's My Car and Hot Shots.  I don't need much more explanation here.

And speaking of movies with John Cryer, the no. 1 movie I'd love to see have a Rifftrax is.....

1.  Superman IV: The Quest for Peace

I actually hate the original two "classics" far more, but the last of the Christopher Reeve movies is so incredibly cheesy and ridiculous, it'd be perfect material!  And since it was recently released on DVD only a few months ago, it's pretty easy to pick up!  What's not to make fun of?  There's the laughably low budget, from the visible strings in all the flying scenes to the cheap stock footage, the fact that the film blatantly rips off scenes and lines from the first two Superman films, hilarious inconsistencies like Lex Luthor cutting a piece of Superman's hair with a regular pair of scissors, Superman speaking in Italian and Russian, the villain who looks like a reject from the Masters of the Universe movie, and John Cryer with a mohawk.  Sounds like a winner to me.

If any of your top 10 winds up actually getting a Rifftrax, bold the title!

UPDATE: After waiting about nearly 3/4 of a year, not one but two of my top 10 most wanted finally get commentaries!  Now I'm hoping Mike and co. will eventually do some DC movies too.... Nuclear Man really needs it coming!

Post by: PsychoshadowX on January 21, 2007, 09:46:28 AM
riff 10, eh? this should be simple enough...
 10: Black Dahlia
    *the charm of a colonoscopy with the plot continuity of a Rodger Corman flm*
  9: Open Water
    *thrill-a minute suspence cavlecade on par with the opening driving scene of Manos-The Hands Of Fate*
  8: Bhram Stoker's Dracula
    *or any other film where Anthony Hopkins scrumps someones leg*
  7: The Fugitive
    *outhouse...doghouse...wafflehouse...coffeehouse...bauhaus...the possibilities are endless!*
  6: saw
    *i think DisembAudio would enjoy this one with all the evil disembodied voice and all*
  5: the Wizard of Oz
    *this falls under 'why the hell not?'*
  4: clerks 2
    *or any Kevin Smith movie for that matter...except jersy girl...i am merciful.*
  3: queen of the damned
    *the special effects leave something to be desired...like skill*
  2: Krull
    *have you seen krull...?*

and the one movie i wild currently line to see riffed the most...

  1: Snakes On A Plane
    *somewhere in the grand esoteric cosmos, i beleive that their exists a higher and nigh-incomprehensible form of natural order. to whit, i beleive that Muthaphukkin' snakes on a muthaphukkin' plane and rifftrax were each set in motion by a conspiring astral force to compliment one another. Mystery science theatre 3000? pulp fiction? mere vehicles, my good friend; vectors by which the possibility of snakes and rifftrax were made actual and co-existant. a rifftrak for snakes on a plane would, in my humble perspective, complete the natural cycle of human endevor.*

1. Alien - Sci fi classic or classic horrible movie?
2. Star trek: Nemesis - Undeniably sucky
3. Armageddon - Undeniably cheesy and sucky
4. Batman and Robin - Clooney meets O'Donnell, meets Schwarzenegger, meets Thurman, they fall in love, they all die.
5. Speed 2: Cruise Control - Sandra bullock at the peak of annoying
6. The Aviator - Leonardo Di-acting? No.
7. Behind enemy lines - Owen Wilson at his most obnoxious and annoying
8. Charlie's angels - I've never seen a movie with 3 women look so gay
9. Catwoman - Halle Berry proves she should never act ever again, and Sharon Stone proves ditto.
10. Independence day - Do I really need an excuse?

Krull.... wow... what a freakin great movie... Well, not great by any of the standard measures... just another movie with that undeniable "RoadHouse"-esque quality that doesn't let you flip the channel. I had to watch until the end, no matter where I picked up on it while channel surfing. It had a seemingly endless HBO run in the mid 80s and while I've probably only seen it start to finish a couple of times... I saw at least 20-30 partial viewings. Rewatchability is sorely underappreciated nowadays.

It will never, ever happen... but I wish it would as to have a worthy excuse to buy the Krull DVD.

Hey that's not what I meant and you know it. The film as I see it carries a lot of
the common Arab stereotypes, which it needs to be blasted for as far as I'm
concerned... but if this movie dances too close to that line, how about the Lion
King? I don't think Lions have been getting riffed a lot lately, maybe it's about time.

10 - Dune
9 - Krull

7 - The Guyver
6 - Judge Dredd
5 - Planet of the Apes (original)
4 - Eragon
3 - Charlie's Angels (1 or 2)
2 - Forrest Gump
1 - Reserved for an as yet undetermined Hollywood remake or movie version of a TV series OR The Wizard of Oz

There's a good chance I'll augment this list in a few weeks by adding the upcoming Transformers movie.

Post by: Muxje on January 28, 2007, 02:00:25 PM
10. Krull... definitely second that one! 
9. Willow, yes that one too.  In fact, pretty much any fantasy movie is delightfully riffable, as LOTR proved.  We suspend our disbelief while Mike and the gang rip great big gaping holes in it :)
8. The Day After Tomorrow.
7. Silence of the Lambs
6. How about one of the old historical "spectaculars" like Ben Hur or The Ten Commandments?
5. Or maybe a modern one like Gladiator?
4. Salute of the Jugger.  Oh yes....
3. Aliens.
2. Snakes on a Plane.... now there's a movie just begging to be riffed at.  The title alone qualifies this movie.
1. Harry Potter (any one of them except maybe the Chamber of Secrets... that one was a bit too bland for good riffing).

Well, "Song of the South" or "Birth of a Nation" it ain't!

I would love to see:

1.   Batman and Robin  (the movie hates us)
2.   Con-Air (retarded..... even for Bruckheimer)
3.   Under Siege 2 : The Dark Territory (or as I call it, the Apple Newton info-mercial).
4.   Titantic  (chick flick on steroids)
5.   28 Days Later (I LOVED this film, but I would love to see what the boys could do with it)
6.   Planet of the Apes (Charlton Heston and talking monkies!)
7.   Bram Stoker's Dracula ("whoa, the dark lord dude")
8.   E.T. (everyone loves this film but me, it is so dated and corny)
9.   Over the Top (Rocky arm wrasslin' with an anoying brat to boot)
10. Help! (i would love to see what they could do with a Beatles flick!)

4. Independence Day...one of the best ever summer-flicks fo-sho
5. Red Dawn ... grrr
6. T2 ... Terminator 2 riffed would kick major ass!
7. Phone Booth ... this movie will steal your soul man
8. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles ... ahh, memories :)

Alright, enough already. Song of the South isn't racist. It's a heartwarming tale of a little kid who looks up to a wise old storyteller. And the storyteller just happens to be black, but does that mean anything? It's a great kids' movie. I don't understand why it's on the same paragraph as The Birth of a Nation. Come on, dude, that's harsh.

Post by: Lady Kitsch on January 28, 2007, 05:07:23 PM
For my first post:
1. Star Wars Episode 2: The movie actually has its moments, but there's more than enough cheese to lampoon. Plus, I own the DVD, for some reason that escapes me now.
2. Snakes on a Plane
3. Krull
4. A zombie film - House of the Dead or Resident Evil Apocalypse or an older film like Lucio Fulci's Zombie could work.
5. The Passion of the Christ - If they steered clear of making fun of Jesus, there's lots of jokes about Mel Gibson and his over the top direction that could be made.  
6. A James Bond movie - Die Another Day or A View to a Kill would be good choices.
7. Masters of the Universe
8. Beastmaster - I love silly 80s fantasy (see numbers 3 and 7).
9. Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom
10. Xanadu
Forgot to Include: Clash of the Titans

I was thinking also of the original V: the Miniseries or V: The Final Battle for riff purposes. 

How 'bout The Abyss?

Bubba Ho-Tep w/ special guest riffer Elvis! (Bruce Campbell, of course)

Should have looked at my film collection before I came to wor....wait a sec....think I once e-mailed a list to someone....let's see.......ah yes:

Big Trouble in Little China (love it)

City of Lost Children (Oh God! It's so french)

Hard Target (It's John Woo, sure....but it's also Van Damme)

Daylight (Let's get trapped with Stallone together)

Total Recall (Can anyone remember....something.....movie)

The Quick and the Dead (Sam Raimi cut Bruce's scenes.  For that...there must be...retribution)  *Also it's got a whole mess o' people who made bad movies separately...in a movie together. 
Sharon Stone...DiCaprio...Crowe...What's his name...and that guy...

This looks like fun. Here's my list in no particular order of preference:

10) Either of the Transporter movies (Jason Statham gives physics a shoe to the junk)

9) Ultraviolet (Milla Jovovich does the same, but with crappier cgi)

8) Either of the Resident Evil movies (Yet another video game masterpiece, and its sequel)

7) Moonraker (If you must riff on a James Bond movie, and you must)

6) Lost in Space (Hey, space: How YOU doin)

5) Alien vs Predator (Because Alien: Resurrection didn't kill the franchise dead enough)

4) Van Helsing (Wolverine in a hat fighting vampire werewolves or something)

3) Tim Burton Batman (Many people love the Burton version of Batman. I am not one of them)

2) Tim Burton Planet of the Apes (Full frontal ape nudity for the whole family)

1) Either of the Tomb Raider movies (Yet another video game movie series, this one with a bizarrely augmented Angeline Jolie)

Mine, in no particular order:

Jurassic Park (I REALLY think this one will be done so it's kind of a gimmie)
The Covenant (new and craptacular!)
Red Dawn (this one is SCREAMING for it!)
Alone in the Dark (this one almost riffs itself...Mike could phone it in, possibly the perfect film to riff on)
Predator (featuring many a now-politician)
Van Helsing (nuff said)
Face/Off  (comedy goldmine just waiting to be mined)
Volcano (Wooden Tommy Lee Jones and lesbo-era Heche vs a river of lava!)
The Fog (remake...perfect movie for riffing!)
Frogs (totally obscure...too obscure to really do but wowsa does this one ever sing! Ray Milland and incomprehensible rednecks vs woodland critters. Do yourself a favor and check this one out sometime. They show it fairly often on Showtime/Cinemax for some reason .)

I think this was one of the first topics ever to appear on the forum.  With all the new people around, I think its a good idea to list your top "wants".  The criteria I use in my choices are not what films "deserve it", but rather if I think they'd make funny Rifftrax.  My 10 (in no particular order):

1. The Wizard of Oz
2. Psycho (original)
3. Commando
4. Highlander
5. Ben Hur
6. Planet of the Apes (the original)
7. Scarface (the remake)
8. Star Wars: A New Hope
9. Terminator 2
10. Tomb Raider

Post by: gbeenie on January 29, 2007, 08:08:42 PM
So, before I give my list, I wanted to talk about the underpinnings of my various choices.
For me, the space in these films where comedy fits are the yawning chasm between a film's desire (in some cases, even demand) to be taken seriously, and its ability to be taken seriously.
Sometimes, a film desire for seriousness is compromised by dated ideas or trappings, sometimes by sheer ineptitude. Most of my selections possess some variation on this idea. I just thought I'd lay it out up front, instead of having to explain thoroughly in each selection.


These are in no particular order:

Batman (1989) or Batman Returns -- I know there's a huge push to Riff Batman and Robin, but while there are a LOT of things about that TERRIBLE film to make fun of, the fact is that B & R is basically a comedy. Tim Burton's first two Batman movies, on the other hand, are, despite Burton's trademark "ghouls' funhouse" atmosphere, clearly meant to be taken seriously. This, combined with how the films have aged (despite my love for these first two Batman films, the passing years have given me ability to see the flaws with something of an objective eye), plus Burton's complete inability to laugh at himself, makes either of these movies ripe for the Riffing.

Invasion of the Bee Girls http://www.amazon.com/Invasion-Star-Creatures-Bee-Girls/dp/B0007R4T1M/ref=imdbpov_dvd_0/002-6559928-3633658 (http://www.amazon.com/Invasion-Star-Creatures-Bee-Girls/dp/B0007R4T1M/ref=imdbpov_dvd_0/002-6559928-3633658) -- How this beautiful dish of cinema con queso somehow failed to be given the business on MST3K is utterly beyond me (maybe its semi-adult content was a factor); With its ridiculous plot, gratuitous nudity and one of the most stupid fight scenes in film history, it's time to correct this oversight.

Billy Jack -- SUPER-serious, and impossibly funny. From incomprehensible improv street theatre, to a supposedly naked woman's visible top (thanks to the film's "open-matte" transfer; it's never been issued in widescreen), to its vague "back to nature" philosophical musings, Billy Jack is a comedy treasure.

Soylent Green/The Omega Man/Planet of the Apes -- ANY post-apocalyptic film starring Mister Charlton Heston will fill the bill.

Zardoz -- No, I haven't dropped it. It wants to be one of those "thoughtful" 70's post-apocalyptic "cautionary tales;" and, goddammit, it wants it like nobody's business, in spite of the complete lack of any concrete idea just what it is it's warning us about.

Godzilla Vs. Hedorah (a.k.a., Godzilla Vs. The Smog Monster) -- Thanks to MST3K, we've had all the Gamera we can possibly keep down. It's time to go back to the granddaddy of all rubber-suit monsters, which hasn't been done since MST3K's second season. This film's environmental "message" makes it a perfect candidate.

The Passion of the Christ -- The ULTIMATE in preaching to the choir. This one could be priced at $4.49, with $.50 of each purchase being donated to The Anti-Defamation League.

Carrie -- Still a great, terrifying film... and Riffable as HELL.

Akira -- If only to hear Mike, Kevin and Bill's multiple interpretations as to what the HELL the ending of this movie actually means.

Eragon -- I've never seen this movie, but two kinds of people have: those who found the books juvenile and derivative, and found the movie to be more of the same; and those who enjoyed the books, and managed to still hate the movie for its combination of arch seriousness and appalling incompetence.

Okay, I spent a few moments tyring to come up with a top 10 list that didn't have all or most of the same titles listed as the rest of you.  They're great lists all of them, especially qbeenie and others who really took the time to describe why they hated some of these movies in such vivid detail.  Having said that....

10.)Hot Ice (A.K.A. Mr. Inside/Mr. Outside) : A '70s buddy cop movie gone horribly awry. starring Hal Linden and Tony Lo Bianco that was an utter craptastic failure. I couldn't watch it for more than 10 minutes..

9.)Sheena: Queen of the Jungle:  Horses crosss-dressing as zebras. they did a better job with the 'Horse of another color' in Wizard of OZ...

8.)Inspector(s) Gadget: Even though I love Matthew Broderick, I really had a hard time with both of these, especially number 2.  Sorry guys, but I've seen Matthew Broderick, I admire Matthew Broderick, but French Stewart is no Matthew Broderick...

7.)Lost in Space(1998): "Danger Will Robinson, my a**"...

6.)Walking Tall(2004): At times, when he wasn't speaking, I had a hard time telling which one was 'The Rock', and which one was 'The 'Big Stick'...

5.)Phantom: Ahhh Yes, Billy Zane talks to the animals.  This was 'Dr. Doolittle' on crack, basically.  One of my favorite scenes was where Phantom (Zane) gets in a jam and tells Devil (the wolf) to go get Hero (the horse), which he does.  They actually spent time showing the two 'conversing', I almost expected to see subtitles.... (Hero:"Whats' that Devil? Walker is trapped by the villain, Again?")

4.)Judge Dredd/Demolition Man: Take your pick, they're both pretty interchangeable...

3.)Ultraviolet/Aeon Flux: See also #4... UV  looks like Tron and Aeon Flux had a love child...

2.)Mousehunt: This is actually one that I actually liked, and would love to see riffed.  True, Nathan Lane can be a bit shrill and over-the-top, but that's just part of his charm...

1.) Detonator(s) 1 and 2/The Lawnmower Man: ...And it's a three-way tie triple feature featuring Pierce Brosnan...  Don't get me wrong, I loved this guy as Bond and Remington Steele. (not to mention the character he played in 'Dante's Inferno')  But The 'Detonator' movies were basically 'Masterminds' with Pierce haplessly pitted against the villain instead of Vincent Kartheiser .(the kid who played opposite Patrick Stewart)  ...And The Lawn mower Man was , ....well the Lawnmower Man...


Okay so technically, that's what, 14 movies?  But like I said some of them are pretty interchangeable....

What the hell?!   How on earth those two were picked to be buddy cops...... did someone grab their SAG directory and pick two names at random?

Sadly, this treasured classic is not out on DVD.

i say conspriacy theory:  You got both A list and B list actors, in a goofy oddball plot.  The movie is moderatly enjoyable, but with the worst performance i have ever seen out mr jean luc picard.  Did i mention he is wearing a nose bandage most of the movie

A nose bandage?   Maybe he thought it was a remake of "Chinatown"?

Oh man, so many good ideas here... some of these are inspired from previous posts:

In no particular order...

Born Losers - the original Billy Jack movie
Walking Tall - the quintessential Joe Don Baker movie
The Town That Dreaded Sundown - VHS only, crap... but stars Dawn Wells !
Eat My Dust - Ron Howard lmao...
Lost Horizon - a classic
Lost Weekend - in keeping with the "lost" theme
Escape From New York - Kurt Russell and Adrienne Barbeau
Conan The Barbarian - Ahnold!
Jason and The Argonauts - one of my all-time faves as a kid
On The Waterfront - Brando, pre-carbohydrates

Maybe we need a separate "classics" Rifftrax division...

First the list, then the commentary

1.   Dune
2.   Ultraviolet
3.   Lost in Space
4.   Van Helsing
5.   Tomb Raider
6.   Godzilla (Roland and Emmerich)
7.   Highlander 2
8.   Zardoz
9.   Batman and Robin
10.   The House of the Dead

1. I love this movie, but it is SO Riffable, the strange pauses the voice overs, the rubber suits...so rich a vein to mine.
2. Really mindless action, I almost put in Resident Evil here, but RE is actually watchable.  Frankly, I just want another rifftrack that gives me an excuse to watch Mila Jovovich again.  Even in crappy movies, I can't take my eyes off her when she's on screen.
3. Gary Oldman scenery chewing, Matt LeBlanc, an alien monkey and for me, Mimi Rodgers and Heather Graham in Lycra!
4. So very bad, all the classic Universal monsters given a 'hip and edgy' 're-imagining'.  Oy.
5. Bad movie, bad plot, hot actress.  At home this movie is called Boob Raider.  There, I said it.
6. Logic takes a holiday!  ID-4 would also fit here, but Godzilla is by far the worse of the two.  One of the few movies I've walked out of.
7. Oh so bad.  It is so disconnected from Highlander, it is easily watchable (using the term loosely) as a standalone.
8. Another bad movie with Sean Connery in it.  I get the feeling he really doesn't care what movies he makes, as long as the checks don't bounce.  Oh, and Thigh-high boots and a thong is NOT acceptable costuming for a man.  Now if Rachel Welch had starred...
9. Joel Schumacher comes out and goes hog wild on batman.  Plus, as an added bonus, George Clooney as the smuggest Batman ever.
10. Uwe "Mama said knock you out"  Boll needs to be punished at some point, this movie will do as 'well' as any other.

10.   The House of the Dead

Here's my list - in no particular order.  I tried my best to pick some movies that no one else has mentioned yet, but there are a few duplicates.

1.   Over The Top – Someone else mentioned this one as well. How can you not riff a Stallone arm wrestling movie?
2.   Critters – Mike would have fun riffing on the little round balls of evil.
3.   Cocoon – The old jokes would be non-stop…Ow my hip! Not to mention we need a good riffing of Steve Guttenberg - come to think of it, hell yea, throw Short Circuit in there too!
4.   Drop Dead Fred – Not sure how many people have seen this but it’s just an abysmal Phoebe Cates comedy from the early 90’s – and she doesn’t even get topless!  It’s the essence of pain.
5.   Kangaroo Jack – The inclusion of this one goes without saying.
6.   Glitter – I’ve never seen it, but many consider it one of the worst mainstream films ever made, right there with Gigli.  I think it’d be great to see Mariah Carey get roasted!
7.   Uwe Boll flicks - I know tons of people have brought this up, but I need to toss in my vote as well.  Any one would do…..House of the Dead, Alone in the Dark, Bloodrayne (is it on DVD yet?)
8.   Donnie Darko – I think a good movie, but I included this one here because I’d love to see if they could pull off a good rifftrack for this one.  Make the weird Donnie Darko funny and I’d be very impressed.
9.   K-9 – Jim Belushi buddy cop movie with a dog.  You could also substitute Turner and Hooch here since they are the same movie, but I think I’d rather see K-9 riffed.  We'll spare Tom Hanks. 
10. The Adventures of Pluto Nash – I’m looking at you Eddie Murphy, it’s time Mike Nelson riffed that smug look right off your face!

Oh I thought of one more... a Rock Hudson film from 1966 called Seconds. It's a pretty neat movie in a Twilight Zone sorta way, but I think it would make a cool riff...

7. Oh so bad.  It is so disconnected from Highlander, it is easily watchable (using the term loosely) as a standalone.


Yeah, I forgot this one on my list. Back in the Joel days, the boys said in an interview that the film they'd most like to do, but never would be able, is Highlander 2. The film is a great choice: it's SUPER-serious, and its focus is SO ill-defined as to be impossible to determine. To wit:

Highlander-- The enemy is ultimate badass The Kurgan, played by ultimate badass Clancy Brown.

Highlander 2-- The enemy is... um... one-size-fits-all environmental solutions? ...and, I guess, Michael Ironside...

OK. Here's my current list:

1) Stealth - Never seen it, but the premise BEGS for Riffing!
2) Double Dragon - They RIDE a STATION WAGON with a ROCKET strapped to it called the DRAGON WAGON! :^)
3) Beastmaster - Any part will do. I've never been able to sit through a whole thing, but Riffing seems like a natural choice.
4) Batman and Robin - There's a reason the fans want it so much.
5) Hulk - I loved it, but man, oh man, can it be riffed! Superhero riffs have been such a good choice so far. :^)
6) Fantastic Four - See: Hulk
7) Jurassic Park - Mostly to give me an excuse to pick up the box set on DVD. It was good, but it was Riffable.
8) Eight-Legged Freaks - I've always wanted to see it and I'm sure it's bad. :^)

Can't think of the last 2 and my break is over. So I'll leave it at top 8. :^)

9. Joel Schumacher comes out and goes hog wild on batman.  Plus, as an added bonus, George Clooney as the smuggest Batman ever.

I've already come up with with a riff line (not bad, considering I haven't seen the movie in about nine years):

When Clooney (as Batman) whips out the Bat Credit Card (if you haven't seen the movie, don't ask; it's a stupid joke, as is this film's every solitary attempt at humor), he should say, "Don't worry about me; I can afford it. Unlike Michael Keaton and Val Kilmer, I'll BE in movies after this."

For those who suggested Conan or Beastmaster...

How about Red Sonja?

It has Arnie and Brigitte Nielsen, both with accents thick as molasses.
"Who ah youw ahnywaaay?"
"Ahm Cahlidohr"!"

Plus the rest of the movie is just cheesy enough... not too cheesy.

"Ahh, the chilling sound of cardboard against cardboard..."

I thought Stealth was pretty stupid, and basically a rip-off of other films.  (Like a lot of Rob Cohen's movies)  I really wanted 8 Legged Freaks to be good, and the effects are pretty cool, but it's a big disappointment - it does star Scarlet Johanssen though!

1. Hackers - I enjoy this movie because its so bad.  Johnny Lee Miller, Matthew Lillard, and Angelina Jolie and bad guy named "The Plague"
2. Starship Troopers - Love the book, love to hate the movie. 
3. Ravenous - Cannibalism at its finest.
4. Ultraviolet - Why Mila? Why?
5. Mission to Mars - This was a pretentious garbage.
6. Demolition Man - Wesley Snipes, Sly Stallone, and Sandra Bullock all together in movie - sign me up!
7. The Wizard - Fred Savage in a 90 minute Nintendo commercial.  And just think of the fun Mike and company can have over the video game training montages.
8. Mr Holland's Opus - Over the top schmaltz
9. The Wicker Man - Haven't seen it, but just from the clips (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e6i2WRreARo) alone....
10. Dungeons & Dragons - The director pinned for 20 years to make this movie and he ended up with that?  He wasn't spending much of that time on the script, that's for sure.

10.) Showgirls - Its in last place because we know they will never riff it. But, when they ever grow up... Well this movie needs to be Riffed. Starting the Save By the Bell Femisist who becomes a stripper then Showgirl. Very bad movie with very bad sex.

9.) The Big Lewbowski - Another one they might not do. And I don't know F##$ing why? I mean what's the big F@#$ing problem with this movie? I think its F!#@ing cool. And it needs to be F@#@ing riffed to F$#%ing death.

8.) Superman Returns - Okay. 30 mins of nothing till the plane sceen. 40 mins of watching Kent mope like a dog. 40 mins watching Superman getting kicked around too much. Then a endding that was 30 mins too long!!! That and you can't make a Superman movie like this without Reeves. It should have been Superman Begins and not Superman the Fanboy Movie. Because Fanboys can't direct.

7.) Days of Thunder - I have the need for riffing.

6.) Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone - Good movie. Crazy fans... lets riff them.

5.) Mars Attacks - Homage to classic 50s Scifi movies. How can the ex-MSTing group NOT riff this?

4.) The Hulk - A movie that took and hour to explain how the Hulk could be. And only 2 mins with the climax fight scene... Look Superman, Batman, X-Men, Spider-Man NEVER needed 60 mins to tell us anything. Being fiction you should never try so hard to make it fact.

3.) Jersey Girl - Kevin Smith has never sunk so low.

2.) Star Trek Generations - The Enterprise goes boom, lame villain, lame story, and Kirk falls off a catwalk and breaks his hip. Things that should have never since Star Trek V.

1.) Master of Disguise - Dear god this was awful. Dana Carvey's come back film. How can you go from Opportunity Knocks and Wanye's World to this trash? This is why I liked Phil Hartman better.

I have come to see RiffTrax as catharsis and healing. The Phantom Menace. The Matrix Trilogy. If I would have seen The Island of Dr. Moreau or Battlefield Earth beforehand, it would have been incredibly therapeutic.

In that light, I would like to see the movies that have hurt me the most. In second place, Ghosts of Mars, which was the worst movie I had ever seen for quite a while, until the beginning of 2006:

I had heard of Ooey Boll's crimes against life, but had never seen one of them. "I've seen many horrible movies on MST3K," I thought, "I've sat through all of Episodes I and II." The third Matrix made me question the point of living, but I was able to move on and get a chuckle about them. I had played all the way through BloodRayne and its sequel on the Xbox, and I really enjoyed them. How bad could this Bull guy be, anyway? I am very glad that my now-fiancee loved me enough to continue associating with me after taking her to see it. On opening night.

This was a movie that hated women, hated people in general. From the Midieval Mullets, to the extremely indeterminate periods of the sets and costumes, to the horrible writing, to the abrupt, unexpected, annoying sex between two main characters [the sound of a jail cell door banging should never be associated with sex, I learned], to the Ben Kingsley doppelganger puppet, to Meatloaf and his entouarge of real Romanian prostitutes, to "special guest" Billy Zane, this movie hurt me. It was just plain insulting, as a human being, as a video game player, as someone who enjoyed the BloodRayne video games. It was like a symposium on kicking me in the crotch. Please, Riffers, I need to get my chuckle from this movie, I need to be able to start the healing.

BTW, now I seriously discount anyone whom I hear claim some movie as the worst movie ever if they haven't seen BloodRayne. [I could accept that any other Icky Bowl movie is as bad, though I, understandably, haven't seen them.]

Check out the VIP version of showgirls.  There is a commentary track on it that is hilarious.  It's done in a more serious manner than any of the rifftrax, but had me laughting just as hard.

In Numerical order only with no preference to order intended and going over Ten in regards to Series, so whilst some may have had one of the movies riffed, I'm wanting more from those series:

1) Star Wars

Obi Wan Kenobi: And these BLAST POINTS! Too accurate for Sand People. Only Imperial Stormtroopers are so precise.

Uhh...pardon o_0' No wonder Uncle Owen called him a Crazy Old Man.

2) Flash Gordon

Dale: Flash! Flash I love you but we only have 14 Hours to save the earth!

Don't you just hate it when they slap a time limit on the most difficult part of the game?

3) Lord of The Rings

Aragorn: But we can give Frodo this chance if we keep Sauron's eye fixed upon us. Keep him blind to all else that moves.
Legolas: A diversion.

All Together Now... DUH!

4) A Film from the 'Arnie' Genre

Place Quotable Arnie line here.

And place Riff for quotable Arnie line here.

5) The Karate Kid

Get Ready for Maximum Mayhem as Marvel Comics and Happy Days team up to face one of the most horrifying things known to man... A LUKE SKYWALKER CONVENTION!

6) Superman

Superman: Listen, what do you hear?
Lois Lane: I don't hear anything.
Superman: I hear everything. You wrote that the world doesn't need a savior, but every day I hear people crying for one.

And because I got so fed up with your whining, I left for 5 years!

7) Rocky

Doctor: If you fight again, you could die.
Rocky Jr: GET HIM DAD! HE TOOK MY ROOM!

Yeah...way to keep things in perspective kid.

8) Highlander

Greetings! I am Juan Sanchez Vilalobos Ramirez.

It's short for Sean Connery.

9) Metal Gear Solid
---
Yes, it's a video game series, but given the fact that the games have a cutscene viewer or if you have Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence, which comes with a DVD Movie using cutscenes from the game, it can easily be riffed, and the games are just filled with Riffable moments. Take for instance this classic moment in the very first Metal Gear Solid.

Snake: A SURVEILLANCE CAMERA!!!!  :o :o :o :o :o

A SURVEILLANCE CAMERA IN A NUCLEAR DISPOSAL FACILITY?! NO FUCKING WAY!!!

10) The Transformers The Movie

Ultra Magnus: But Prime, I'm just a soldier. I'm not worthy.
Optimus Prime: Nor was I...

Untill I gave the guy 20 bucks.

9.  Rocky V
8. Moonraker
7. The Man With The Golden Gun
6. Star Trek: The Motion Picture
5. Bad Episodes of TV

OK, here we go...

10. House of the Dead - or any other Uwe Boll film.  I picked this one because it's the only one I've  actually watched.

9. They Live - I think I remember something about a little fight scene in this one...

8. Double Dragon The Movie - Haven't seen it in a long time, but I remember it sucked on an epic scale.

7. 3 Ninjas - Hadn't seen it mentioned anywhere... wonder what Tum Tum is up to nowadays?

6. No Holds Barred - Possibly the best movie about professional wrestling starring Hulk Hogan ever made.

5. TMNT II - Go ninja go ninja go! One of the top ten films of the comedy duo Vanilla Ice and Kevin Nash.

4. Commando - Classic 80's cheese. Arnold killed like a million people in this one.  Also had some of the most clever dialogue in film history, like this...   (bad language warning) http://youtube.com/watch?v=N-flQmtL_IQ&mode=related&search=

3. Kickboxer - no comment needed, just watch...  http://youtube.com/watch?v=aOIJtS4gbaY

2. Over the Top - The best unintentionally funny movie ever made.  It's worth watching even if they don't riff it. Sylvester Stallone basically has to arm wrestle for custody of his bratty son. And he's a truck driver. And his wife looks just like David Bowie.  Awesome!

1. Evil Dead II/w guest Bruce Campbell - My favorite movie.  The only actor I kinda don't hate. This would be a MST3K/Evil Dead geek's idea of heaven...

I really liked a lot of the other suggestions, like Bubba Ho-Tep with BC as a guest.  Masters of the Universe would be great, Cool as Ice, Street Fighter Movie, and Cobra could also be on my list.

What do you guys think of the list?

I've met Bruce Campbell a coupla' times... the last was at a preview screening here in San Francisco for Bubba Ho-Tep. And the guy seems very, very straight. As in, not a naturally funny guy. Obviously he has a sense of humor... But i think he's either not very good at off-the-cuff humor, or he's just really sick of the whole scene and everything "it expects from him"...

At least, that's the vibe i got from him. Maybe if he was handed a script and a paycheck he'd be great though... Who knows?~

I know what ya mean Rude, BC is very dry.  But have you ever heard the commentary he did on Bubba Ho-Tep in character as Elvis?  He was ripping the movie for toilet humor and bad language, of which the King didn't care for.  It was good and seemed to be off-the-cuff...  He had references to the Memphis Mafia and various films Elvis was in and directors he worked with.  Funny stuff!

I wasn't a huge fan of the movie, but the commentary sounds like it could be pretty funny. I'm a huge Elvis fan... so i should probably check that out. His book was pretty funny at times too. And you're right; he's got a very "dry" sense of humor in person. But i still think that he's a script-only kinda' guy... which would be just fine for Rifftrax though~

Anyway, welcome to the message boards!~

OK, here we go...

9. They Live - I think I remember something about a little fight scene in this one...


Criminy! I love that movie, but that fight scene! It's like Carpenter called lunch during the filming of that scene, but forgot to tell the actors, and was amazed to discover they were still at it when he got back.

I'm a fan of the 80's, do we really have to limit it to 10? Okay, I narrowed it down:

1. Purple Rain - I'm not saying it's bad, just very riffable
2. Collision Course - Jay Leno & Pat Morita flick
3. Dream A Little Dream - Double your Corey pleasure
4. The Last Dragon - Thank you Mr. Gordy for this turdy delight
5. Action Jackson - Weathers & T. Nelson ('nuf said)
6. BMX Bandits - Too easy
7. Beastmaster - Again, not particularly bad, just riffable
8. Thrashin' - horrid Josh Brolin skater flick
9. Back To The Beach - Frankie & Annette should've retired long before this
10. Over The Top - Once again, too easy

10. Charlie's Angels - Matrix type stunts are taught at the Police Academy, huh?
9. Superman IV - How to make a Superman movie for 2.50
8. Godzilla - Ferris Bueller, Dinosaur hunter.
7. Armegeddon - Michael Bay's time is up!
6. Bloodrayne - enuff said!
5. From Justin to Kelly - The film that makes afraid to go to the beach.
4. The Brother Grimm - Terry Gilliam proves he was Monty Python's weak link.
3. Lost in Space - what stopped Matt LebLanc from being jettisoned into deep space?
2. King Kong - Peter Jackson has lost his damn mind.
1. Batman and Robin - a movie with 2 hours of bad puns must be destroyed

You must be smokin' some expensive cheeba there. Terry Gilliam, weak link? Peter Jackson, good director who made one bad movie? Give me a break.

Yes, The Brothers Grimm is a piece of shit, but look at all the gems Gilliam produced before it: Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Time Bandits, Brazil, The Adventures of Baron Munchausen, The Fisher King, Twelve Monkeys, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, The Man Who Killed Don Quixote (even though he never finished it, the few minutes he did finish are f'n brilliant!!) - compare that to Peter "shitty B-movies followed by shitty slightly mainstream movies followed by shitty Tolkien adaptation followed by shitty remake" Jackson. There's a whole world of shit right there.

Terry Gilliam is one of the most brilliant directors working today. Peter Jackson sucks.

Terry Jones directed The Holy Grail along with Gilliam.

And you forgot the Fisher King....which sucked....and Time Bandits, Midgets, yuk, yuk!

But who could forget Gilliams great skits for the Pythons.....well, none are coming to mind other then the Jewish Rastiferian liver donor.

As a Python fan, I can say with with all honesty that most people don't know who the hell Gilliam is, and what he brought to the group was animation, which was great, but his film for the most part have been disappointing.

Yes, you are.

Peter Jackson is one of the worst directors working today. I despise his work with a passion.

Terry Gilliam, however, is a great talent. Gilliam can create great stuff with small budgets while Jackson spends too much on nothing. Jackson is Hollywood trash. Gilliam is an artist.

Don't get me wrong, I am not lumping Gilliam into the same class as Uwe Boll or Michael Bay, but some of his movies have been crap.  The best directing Gilliam did was the sailing building short at the beginning of MP's The Meaning of Life, which was very funny.  But to say Time Bandits or the The Fisher King  was "art" is just nothing more then fanboy worship on your part.

It least you said that The Brother's Grimm was crap, so we can agree on something.

Of course, because Mike, Kevin, and Bill were there to help ease the pain. Without them, however, you'd be trying to rip your eyeballs out of their sockets with a rusty fork. The Brothers Grimm is bad, but it's not Battlefield Earth bad.

 7. Harry Potter (anyone in the series but it´s always good to start with the first one))
 6. Silent Hill
 5. Resident Evil (because VG to movie conversions don´t deserve mercy)
And since animated movies deserve equal treatment
 4. Neon Genesis Evangelion (Though I´m afraid this one might be harmfull to Mike and anyone daring this piece)

Cloak and Dagger! What a great friggin movie. It's hard to deny the genius that is Dabney Colman. Easily a top ten from the grade school years. I think that's the best rifftrax suggestion I've read in a long time.

...and we really, really need a cheesy 80's action movie from the Stallone/Van Damme/Segal/Arnold family. Namely Over The Top/Bloodsport/Under Siege/Commando

10. Jaws: The Revenge - This film was made 20 years after the first... and the special effects were done 20 years BEFORE the first.
9. Seed Of Chucky - It was trying to be funny. It wasnt.
8. Scream 3 - The ironic thing is that the original Scream made fun of movies like this.
7. Soul Survivors - Did ANYONE understand what was going on through the whole movie?!
6. Catwoman - Halle Berry vs. Sharon Stone... In a battle over who's career is in bigger trouble
5. Species II - Some sequels should never be made
4. The Ring Two - Who's idea was it to ditch the entire premise that made the original such a fun film?
3. Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation - Crossdressing. Renee Zellwegger. Chainsaws.
2. Basic Instinct 2 - Sharon Stone in a bad movie. Again.
1. House of the Dead - Uwe Boll's infamous crap-fest

8. Rocky 4 (the with Dolph!)
7. Steel Magnolias (or an equally weepy chick flick)
6. Final Fantasy Spirits within
5. Punisher (either version, but I'd prefer the new one)
4. League of Extraordinary Gentlemen
3. Batman and Robin. It's coming. I know.
2. Something directed by Uwe Boll. I don't care what.
(interesting side discussion. If the Mike and the gang riffed Uwe and then were challenged to a boxing match. Which would stand the best chance of winning. My money is on Kevin. Or maybe Disembaudio.)
1. Independance Day. When I first saw it in theaters I thought, "I wish MST3K would have a go at this."

10. Star Trek: The Motion Picture.

Especially w/Kevin Murphy and his semi continuing fascination with Persis Khambhata (sp?)

9. Titanic

Early Leo DeCrapio is still Crap...long, true...but usually with an entire films worth of whiny dialogue bring out the best in Rifftrax crew.

8. Fantastic Four

I always loved the idea and theme of the comic book....but the movie just felt bleh.

7. Cutthroat Island

Pretty much any Renny Harlin flick is perfect, but this one, I believe would be quite fitting (especially around the time Pirates 3 comes out.)

6. John Q.

There's only so much riffing I can do on Denzel's worst movie to date.  I need someone else to take a crack at this godawful preach piece of corn-filled elephant dung.

5. Grease 2

I love Michelle Pfeiffer...but one Grease was bad enough...two...a shame against humanity

4. Godfather III

Sophia Coppola alone is worth the three hour running time.

3. When a Stranger Calls

I begged my wife to not make me buy it...I did anyway... :angry:

2. Alien 3

Fincher's vision was stolen, and it became a heaping pile of junk.

1. Con Air

I just really despise Nic Cages lack of emoting ability, Malkovich's over-the-top delivery, Buscemi's overall wasted screen time (and talent) and John Cusack as a badass (rather than being the intellegent thinker he usually plays)

10. Waterworld (never seen all of and would only do so if it were Riffed)
9. The Postman (same as above)
8. Ishtar (reportedly the worst movie ever)
7. Sky Captain and the world of Booooooring..uh I mean Tomorrow
6. Spaceman (oddly funny but I think would make for interesting fodder)
5. The Day After Tomorrow/Volcano/Deep Impact or any other garden variety big budget world ending film
4. Absolutely any film made for the Sci-Fi channel staring Dean Cain
3. Toys
2. Barbarella
1. The Brave Little Toaster (possible biopic of Disembaudio's early childhood?)

In no particular order:

10: Shark Attack 3: Megalodon.
Seriously bad, yet utterly hilarious to watch. Plastic sharks, bad dubbing, John Barrowman screaming, and the infamous "Eat your pussy" line.  This would be a glorious throwback to the old MST3K days.

9: Goldeneye
My favourite Bond film, but the fact that it stars Nightcrawler, Boromir, Hagrid and Mitchell cannot be ignored.

8: Flying Virus
So, so bad, it makes Snakes on a Plane look positively reasonable. The plotholes are bigger than Rutger Hauer's corpulant gut. (such as the IT geek who convieniently knows how to hack into a missile's targeting system on his old laptop.)

7: The Rock
Cheesy as hell, but fun to watch, especially to see Nic Cage get outacted by Connery at every turn.

6: Enter the Dragon
I'm amazed there hasn't been a riffed 70's Kung-fu movie already, (and Master Ninja doesn't count) and this would fit the bill perfectly.

5: Species
I don't care that Ghandi's in it, or that Natasha Hentridge gets her boobs out. This film sucks on toast, but not as much as...

4: Species 2
With twice the slimy sex, and twice the annoying side characters.

3: Independance Day
Otherwise known as 'The day everyone on Earth turned into a giant cliche.
Seriously, there's just so many easy targets in his film. Mike and co would have a field day.

2: The Gnome Mobile
Probably the most insane Disney film ever. Two words: Gnome Pimp.

1: Replicant
Jean Claude Van Damme does an acting tour-de-force, playing a greasy arsonist, and child-like man cloned from said arsonist who learns karate by watching TV.

10. Interview With the Vampire

9. Punch Drunk Love

Billy Madison has a heart (and a harmonium)

8. TransAmerica

So many dick jokes... so little time

7. Mr. and Mrs. Smith

Wooden acting paired with real life wooden human beings

6. Fight Club

It may seem I have it out for Brad Pitt but I don't-

5.V for Vendetta

Witty British quips

4. Watership Down

Bug out rabbit movie with Art Garfunkle singing "Bright Eyes"

3. Capote

Weird, fey New Yorker coupled with Kansas locals and murders

2. The Graduate

I can hear it all now, "You're trying to ____ me, Mrs. Robinson." Just fill in the blank with any verb.

1. Logan's Run

My Top Ten Countdown:

10) The Cell -- The only good scene in this movie is where the horse gets all screwed up. The movie was supposed to scare me, and instead it was just stupid. I want to see this sucker ripped!

9) You Got Served -- I can think of no good reason NOT to make fun of this movie.

8 The Day After Tomorrow -- because if you pollute the earth, New York will flood, then freeze, and you'll be attacked by wolves.

7) Don't actually know the name of this one off hand. If anybody thinks they know what I'm talking about, tell me. The plot involves a farmer with a shotgun, aliens, and the undead. Somehow rain makes them undead too. There's a hilarious scene where the farmer gets attacked by a zombie fish. It's weird. Oh well, I dunno.

6) Tomb Raider 2 -- Hey look! I'm Angelina Jolie, and I just punched a shark in the nose while underwater!  If you open Pandora's box, we're all screwed.Cool! Let's open it!

5) Catwoman -- "I'll have a White Russian, hold the Kahlua and Vodka", and let's not forget the annoying Soul Sister music.

4) Mortal Kombat 2 -- Because it makes Mortal Kombat 1 look good. Here's an idea, let's put a 2 second cameo of every Mortal Kombat character ever made. "You have failed me Rain, now you die!" "But...but they just introduced my character two seconds ago!" "Too bad!" Most memorial quote? "It's my animality!" -Nightwolf

3) Charlies Angels 2 -- I laughed the last time I watched this drunk. Cameron Diaz would make a horrible spy because her mouth's too big.

2) Flash Gorden (1980s Version) -- Bad acting, Queen music whenever Gordon does the least thing from stretching to going to the bathroom, and...is that Timothy Dalton? "Flash! Flash I love you, but we only have 14 hours to save the earth!"

1) Fantasy Mission Force -- A little obscure Jackie Chan movie that is ripe with unintentional comedy, horrible voice acting (for the English translation), poor transitions, a plot that makes almost no sense, happy sounding music in death scenes, and character names like "Greased Lightning." I always wanted this to be MST3Kd, but it never happened. It's not "too" obscure to get a copy of the film either. I got mine at Best Buy. By far the most hilarious cheese movie ever, IMO, and I've seen classics like "Big Trouble in Little China" Even if this movie never gets riffed, it's a movie that everyone should see, because it's just that bad. Even Jackie Chan's embarrassed by it.

Oh, and as a bonus, there's a trailer to "Mission to Mars" that I always found hilarious. The trailer's hard to find though. I found it on an old DVD of "Gone in Sixty Seconds," if you're lucky enough to have it. I tried to find it on YouTube but no luck.

Oh, and as a bonus, there's a trailer to "Mission to Mars" that I always found hilarious. The trailer's hard to find though. I found it on an old DVD of "Gone in Sixty Seconds," if you're lucky enough to have it. I tried to find it on YouTube but no luck.

I agree with most of yours...although I never wasted my time on You Got Served, Mortal Kombat, Mission Force, or Flash Gordon...but the others...make me barf in my mouth a little bit each time I think of them.

Damn it, why'd I have saurkraut for dinner?  It tastes horrible the second thru 45th time!

Well, I'd hardly call Fantasy Mission Force a waste of time if you lived in the camp I live in. The "So bad it's good" camp.
I LURVE Fantasy Mission Force because it sucks, and I feel it's paradoxically not a waste of time to watch a movie that bad because it's educational and funny. Or something like that.

Where am I?

8 - Death Wish 3
7-  Cyborg
6-  American Ninja
5-  Action Jackson
4- The Last Dragon
3- They Live

I haven't seen American Ninja in YEARRS...

and They Live...excellent, I think it should be the next sci-fi flick chosen.

And Commando, and maybe a double feature with Raw Deal would be good  >:D

10. Titanic.

James Cameron makes this totally unwatchable crapfest, and it becomes the biggest success of all time. I think it's time this movie gets taken down a peg or two. Also, from the selected riffed sequences we got to see on the MST3K Little Gold Statue Special, I'm still busting a gut.

9. Pulp Fiction.

It's a fun movie, no doubt, but this is a Royale with way too much cheese. There's just so much you can do with this movie.

8. Minority Report.

Come on. Does this really need an explanation? It's freakin' Minority Report.

7. The Day After.

Overflowing with Guttenburgy goodness, this made for TV spectacular about a nuked Kansas is wild, and I can't think of one scene that isn't outstandingly ready for a riff or two.

6. Empire Strikes Back.

Luke: I am not afraid.

Yoda: You will be.... Mmm.... You wiiilllll beeee. ..... nuff said.

5. Aliens.

The second (but not last) James Cameron movie on the list is a personal favorite. Aliens is the mother of all sequels, the mother of all action movies, and the mother of Bill Paxton. The movie itself is his mother.

4. 2001

Kubricks bore-filled science fiction "masterpiece" cold not be more overrated or more unwatchable... to me, at least.

3. Goodfellas.

When's the last time you heard a really good Pesci joke?

2. Batman

In "Mike Nelson's Movie Megacheese," Mike voiced his dismay at the Batman movies. I could not agree more. Nicholson is a beboping Joker, who digs on vandalizing museums while rocking out to Prince... I'm glad he got a big paycheck. Tim Burton sucks.

1. Terminator 2: Judgement Day

Take one whiny kid, throw in an assload of Scwarzennegarian one-liners, add a pinch of liquid metal goober, top it off with a terrible soundtrack by Guns and Roses, and wrap it all up in a nice little package of nuclear apocalypse. What do you have? You have an iron smelting plant in the middle of a mysteriously traffic free Los Angeles! ... and Terminator 2: Judgement Day, I guess. The work Mike and Bill did on T3 was astonishing, and I couldn't hope for a better Rifftrax.

Pretty good picks...I had mentioned Titanic before, it's ripe if there's ever been a movie worthy of riffing.

I digress, I disagree with Goodfellas though. I think two and a half hours of mob/Pesci joes would be a little tedious.
Title: Re: List the top 10 films you'd want riffed
Post by: Scrivener on April 23, 2007, 06:23:14 AM
Herewith, my top ten, plus two.  The added two are special cases, movies that should be riffed despite being good.

#12:  The Lord of the Rings:  The Two Towers
Pretty obvious continuation of the Fellowship riff.  Two-part riffs should be a special case, but Two Towers qualifies.

#11:  Star Trek II:  The Wrath of Khan
For my money, the best film in the Trek franchise ... but Lord, it is so chock full of riffin' material.  The Great Shatner-Montalban Scenery Chew-Off; Kirstie Alley back when she was thin and (admit it, guys) hot; Project Genesis, which if it doesn't inspire at least fifteen song references involving Phil Collins, proves Mike isn't doing the job right; and last but not least, multiple Chekov screams!  I can wait a decent interval after Star Trek VI, but I really want this one.

And now for the bad movies, in no particular order ...

#10:  Eragon
Yes, dragons again, this time in a virtual scene-for-scene, character-for-character ripoff of "Star Wars".  The thought of these people somehow contriving to do a sequel that rips off The Phantom Menace could cause Kevin to vomit up his pancreas.  Whether that's a selling point is a matter of taste.

#9:  Catwoman
Some Oscar-winning actresses have it coming. <chord>

#8:  Days of Thunder
Not only does it complete the Cruise triptych, it also provides an opportunity to mine NASCAR for big laughs.

#7:  Armageddon
Does Michael Bay have it coming, or what?  Gives Mike a second shot at both Bruce Willis and Ben Affleck, plus a Affleck-Liv Tyler romance subplot that rivals Anakin-Padme for painful banality (not to mention Bay's own love triangle in Pearl Harbor).  The one practical caveat:  can Mike shout over this movie's thumping loud soundtrack for over two hours?

#6:  Independence Day
This movie is a lot of goofy fun, accent on "goofy" -- and that means riffing material galore.  What can Mike make of Will Smith, Jeff Goldblum, and plot holes big enough to fly an alien mothership through?  Wouldn't you just love to find out?

#5:  Godzilla (1998)
Two in a row for Devlin and Emmerich, only this movie forgot the "fun" part.  Anyone who contrives to make a Godzilla movie be no fun deserves no mercy.  Loads of good riffing fodder here:  I wouldn't know where to start the list.

#4:  The da Vinci Code
Some movies take themselves so seriously, with material so goofy, it's almost not fair.  Almost.  Tom Hanks, you've only got yourself to blame for the riffing coming your way.

#3:  Jaws:  The Revenge
Man, what chum this is.  The problem with riffing it is that there are multiple versions floating around, and it might be tough getting Riff producers and Riff consumers on the same page.  If that can be managed, though ... smile, you son of a --

#2:  Batman and Robin
Do I even have to go into this?

#1:  Barb Wire
Because darn it, if you can't use your very own entertainment company for acts of revenge, what good is the free market anyway?

I think the newest itteration of King Arthur would make a good riff target. It's got that golden combination of putrid summer blockbuster idiocy and the balls to take itself seriously. Like a house of cards, it will collapse if pressured by good riffing.

Lots of good suggestions, and some ones that made me scratch my head, but I have THE ULTIMATE TOP 10 LIST (in no particular order)

10. The DaVinci Code From Tom Hanks wispy mullet, to the ending that Helen Keller could see coming, one of the worst movies I saw last year.

9. Return of the Living Dead 4: Necropolis Straight to video crap, that was tailor-made for to be ripped on. Peter Coyote does his best "Fire Marshall Bill" impression.

8. The Good Shepherd: BOOORRRRIIIINNNNGGGGG

7. Scarface: Face it. Despite it's glowing reviews by gangsta wannabes, this movie is nothing more than big-budget, B-movie crap.

6. King Kong (remake): Peter Jackson somehow convinced  the general population that this movie was good. Warlock? You decide.

5. The Ring: Horses are not scary.

4. Patch Adams: Robin Williams at his best. And, by "best", I mean "unfunniest and annoying."

3. Face/off: Travolta AND Cage. Someone I know once said they saw Nicholas Cage in person, and he was 6'7", hunched, and had long bony hands like claws. I was instantly reminded of the time I saw Tiny Tim at the county fair. I got the distinct feeling he drank human blood to stay alive.

2. Any movie made by Steve Martin in the past five years: You know, the one where he has all the kids, or the one with Queen Latifah, or the Pink Panther one... or.... Steve... what happened?

1. 2001: A Space Odyssey: Just think about it...

5. The Ring: Horses are not scary.

Nor are house flies and hardwood floors with water damage. A lot of what that movies does is present things to you in a way that makes you think they should be scary, so you do, and then after you jump you feel ashamed of yourself for being creeped out because some guy plucked a fly off a TV screen.

I like the movie, but it is a little dated now. The Russians our our comrades now. It was a cold war movie. NOw it is kinda funny to think of a huge army of Ruskies being air dropped all over the USA and taking it over and the only people who can take the country back are High School students....

I want to see more movies that I actually own, riffed.  Of course, all the movies I own I love to death, so I'm torn between my love of Mike ripping a new one for cinema, and my love of my movies themselves.... Oh well.

1) Jurassic Park
2) Superman Returns
3) Star Wars Episode III
4)The Abyss
5) Aliens
6) War of the Worlds, 2005 version
7) Any of the Back to the Future movies
8 ) Any of the Harry Potter movies
9) The Hunt for the Red October
And of course ---
10) Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Movie (now don't tell me that wouldn't be a total mind-f*ck of an experience!!!)  :gouge:

My dream 10:

10) Silent Hill : Let's take this video game, take out the creepy, and make it a bit confusing for people. Oh and add a lesbian cop and child torture with fire. And barbwire...lots and lots of barbwire

9) E.T. The Extra Terrestrial : Come on, I know this film is much loved...and I love it myself, but the possibilities are ENDLESS! Especially with the new 2002 tweaked edition of the film. They made E.T. go from cute to creepy!

8) Waterworld: It has it coming....seriously it does.

7) Titanic: It so has it coming

6) Friday the 13th: I am so surprised they have not attempted this one yet. It is soooooo riffable!!!

5) Pocahontas: Out of all of Disney's movies...I dispise this one the most. I call it "Disney Rapes History"

4) Jurassic Park: For obvious reasons of course.....

3) The Last Dragon : The Shogun of Harlem needs to be bitchslapped by Mike

2) The Goonies: I think it would be sweet if they can get someone from the movie to join them in the riffing

and my #1 choice for a film that needs to be riffed is....

XANADU!!!!
A Roller Skating Olivia Newton John, Gene Kelly, and that dude from the Warriors ruining his career while rejects from Studio 54 dance around and stuff? Plus it's coming to Broadway as a Broadway show in June. DO THIS ONE PLEASE!!!

Keeping in mind many of these don't exactly speak positively or negatively on the quality of the movie (In fact, I absolutely love my number one pick).

10)  Firehouse Dog:  I try not to pick on the horrible family films usually, but after hearing the belabored and impenetrable premise on the Podcast "I Love Movies"  (at the almost dead handheldcomedy.com and listen to the second to last and last episodes) this seems like it might be tempting.  And I believe the director actually did some good films too.

9)  Jack Frost:  I'm speaking of the 1979 TV special.  Nestor is the one I remember most from my childhood because it was so depressing, but I want Mike to do even more Rankin Bass specials and this is the other one I grew up with.

8)  The Running Man:  Sure, Arnold is an easy target, but this very dumb action movie is essentially a collection of very silly villains and dumb one liners.  perfect for riffing.

7)  Barb Wire:  And not just because it hurt MST3k but also because it's Pamela Anderson in a Mad Max remake of Casablanca.  I repeat to make my point heard: It's Pamela Anderson in a Mad Max remake of Casablanca.  Dammit, film industry, leave that movie alone.  It's done nothing to you, save maybe inspiring your hopes and dreams.

6) Days of Thunder:  Tom Cruise, Jerry Bruckheimer.  Or was it Michael Bay.  Sorry, those two are interchangeable to me.  But you get my point.

5)  Day of the Dead:  Arguably the worst of the Dead movies isn't so bad but it's quite riffable.  In fact, is there any monster more riffable than a zombie?

4) The Who's Tommy:  This or any rock opera needs Kevin Murphy's vocals.  It's just so crazy and over the top, it deserves it, like most rock operas.  In fact, most rock opera's deserve the RiffTrax treatment.

3)  The Hollow Man:  This is pretty much just because Mike hasn't done a Kevin Bacon movie yet and this is just another bad forgettable Bacon movie.

2)  Hackers:  I love it when a movie is based entirely around something that the creators know so little about.  Hackers are not this cool.  In fact, these guys are not this cool.

1) Sin City:  I love this movie a lot, but it's so stylized, over-the-top and crazy, that it is very riffable.  Though it is intentionally over the top, it's not asking for it like Snakes on a Plane (or, as it's called in Japan, Snake Flight) did with it's advertising campaign of "Watch our silly movie".  Sin City is cool and crazy, but it's so cool that it comes back around to being silly... or maybe it's so silly that it comes back around to being cool.  Deep.

I want to see more movies that I actually own, riffed.  Of course, all the movies I own I love to death, so I'm torn between my love of Mike ripping a new one for cinema, and my love of my movies themselves.... Oh well.

1) Jurassic Park

I think the craptacular Lost World would be a better choice. JPIII knew it was post-shark-jump, so Riffing it is kind of irrelevant.

2) Superman Returns

As much as I liked this movie, I can definitely see riffing potential there.

3) Star Wars Episode III

Personally, I thought they should have Riffed Episode III before Episode II; it's that awful.

5) Aliens

This one might be a challenge; the film's pacing is so tight (one of the reasons it endures, I expect) that a good Riff might be hard.


10) Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Movie (now don't tell me that wouldn't be a total mind-f*ck of an experience!!!)  :gouge:

It's been discussed round these parts. The big problem there is availability (the DVD is ever so out-of-print).

10 - Showgirls (just a classic good-bad movie that MUST be riffed at some point - no brainer)
9 - Catwoman (Sharon Stone as the dueling indestructible cosmetics magnate alone should put this on anyone's list)
8 - Snakes on a Plane (sort of obvious - again - but it demands to be riffed)
7 - From Justin to Kelly (one of the most awful abyssmal movies ever crapped out of hollywood)
6 - Volcano (a steaming fun-fest of heche-tastic goodness with a gooey tommy lee jones inner nouget center)
5 - Enough (la j.lo at her lifetime-movie-as-major-motion-picture worst-ness... she needs to be 'honored' with some solid riffing)
4 - Independence Day (again - a classic demands-to-be-riffed crapstravaganza)
3 - The Wizard of Oz (just a truly classic film with some great goofiness that mike and his cohorts could gleefully slaughter)
2 - Boat Trip (a mind curdlingly wretched pile of foul stinking badness that was seemingly MADE only for mike and company to riff it)
1 - The Passion of the Christ (the fact that this movie is so divisive - to say the least - plus its extreme gore-as-holy-worship just calls out for riff's galore)

a few suggested guest riffers (not for these movies necessarilly - just for movies in general):

Carrie Fisher
Kathy Griffin
Mary Jo Pehl
Trace Beaulieu
Frank Conniff

Lots of "bring out the gimp" style references during the whipping (I'm sure this movie must be HUGE in the B&D market), throw in some Life of Brian references and some Jesus jokes.  I could see it, although I'd still rather see 'The 10 Commandments'

If you want to discuss films go make a thread for them, don't deliberately derail this thread.

trilation, welcome to the forums, thanks for searching around and using the existing threads, that's great to see!

Unfortunately Mike has already looked at Showgirls and pretty much ruled it out, he said it was just too ugly.

Oh and Mary Jo is already lined up, she's the next extra special guest riffer.

Post by: Nunyerbiz on May 02, 2007, 05:44:43 AM

I think Alien is a great flick... not that I think it should be disqualified from a riff just for that... but... It's all tension and build up for the first half or whatever. There just isn't much meat to riff on for quite awhile. They are going to have to do a LOT of reaching early on to fill the air... and I never think they are at their best when the movie doesn't provide direct fuel for the riffs.

10) SNOW FALLING ON CEDARS--The working definition of boring Oscar-bait movies.  :P
9) KRULL--I've been itching to see this miserable flick get it for a long time...: >:D 
8) THE BLACK HOLE--Christopher Nolan has said this is one of his favorite flicks.  Why, Chris--_why_!?!?
7)  BRAM STOKER'S DRACULA--Keanu Reeves'  anachronistic performance is reason enough to smackback this one...
6)  LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMAN--Or as a friend called it, THE LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY CONFERENCE ROOMS...
5)  THE HULK--No, Edward Norton doesn't need to remake this.  (Why, Edward--_why_?!?!)
4) ALEXANDER--"Babylon would prove a mistress easier to enter than to leave..."  ::) 
3) VAN HELSING--I would rather have played this than suffered through watching it.
2)  300--This was supposed to be a spoof, right? Right?
1) THE DA VINCI CODE--Poor Tom Hanks seems to spend this movie wondering when Hugh Jackman will show up and get him off the hook...

5.5--THE BLACK DAHLIA.  On shaky ground from the start, but "Dinner at the LInscotts" irrevocably sends it off into comedy heaven.
75.--PRINCE OF DARKNESS.  And I thought MANOS was the grubbiest, most itch-inducingly slow flick I'd ever seen...

8.5--THE HAUNTING (1999) version. There was no reason for this remake. And there's even less reason to watch it.
6.5--THE AVENGERS. Gave up the unwelcome news that, yes, Sean Connery _could_ deliver a bad performance.

1) Pitch Black - Was this character so good that they had to make 2 more movies?
2) The Lost World (Micheal Chricton) - Let's make a movie based off of a book that has nothing to do with the book.
3) Leprechaun - any of them (there are 6 of them)
4) Dr. Strangelove - Lots of good material here
5) Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon - Do I need a reason?
6) Center Stage - My wife watches this one. It's ballet. Period.
7) Stick it! - My wife watches this one too, about a bada$$ becoming a gymnast, and then purposely blowing it at the end.
8 ) Dog Soldiers - Yep, my intestines are outside of my body, but I can walk around just fine.
9) Mission impossible II - The first one was so cool! Why did Tom grow a mullet and begin action scenes with doves?
10) Monster - Charlize theron's makeup is the main star.

Piranha wasn't meant to be scary. It's a comedy. It was clearly a spoof of Jaws. It's about as much of a horror movie as Monty Python and the Holy Grail is a mediaeval adventure film.

I'm new but here's my list

Virtuosity: Two Oscar winners(Russell Crowe and Denzel Washington), one's a Robot and the other has a Robotic arm. Guess which is which.
Goodfellas: The movie that makes murder and the mob a funny combination. Plus a shot of Sam Jackson in little boy undies.
The Wiz: A pre op Michael Jackson And Diana Ross without a wig.
Mahogany: Weird outfits, Psycho and Diana Ross make craptacular fun.
Psycho's sequels: Especially the one with Jeff Fahey(The scene when he gets beaten with his own guitar is a classic.)
Deep Blue Sea: A killer whale, how original. And Sam Jackson with a retarded haircut. Hell any of his movies(Shaft ;))
V: Marc Singer's too tight to breathe jeans, lizard looking aliens, and Freddy Kruger without makeup.
Any Planet of the Apes movie: Think the mother of Time of the Apes for MST3K fans.
The Ghastly One's: This would make an MST3K classic. I just saw it. A man's arm is cut off that appears reattached, a hunchback who gets whipped with a plastic dress belt. And shots that look like the cameraman keeps falling down the stairs.
Leprechaun: Willow stars as a killer leprechaun and it features Jennifer Aniston's embarrassing film debut. The sequels are pretty riffable too.

Too many more to list.

I think they need a set of movies that will sell (while I think Zardoz would be hilarious, I don't think its mainstream enough for what they're doing now). So after some thought, here is my list:

10)The Da Vinci Code (easy)
9) Matrix Reloaded (easy)
8) Trainspotting (i personally think this would be hilarious)
7) Fight Club  (could be a classic)
6) Pulp Fiction (this would be a challenge)
5) Independence Day (easy)
4) Flash Gordon (my guilty pleasure. i may be the only one to buy this)
3) Its a Wonderful Life (easy and may get press)
2) The Godfather (how great would that be)

Since my up-thread Top Ten has been rendered obsolete by the riffing of "Eragon" (thank you, gentlemen, the check is in the mail), I feel obligated to provide a new #10.  Fortunately, that's easy:

#10:  Waterworld.  Filtered by Mike and company so it's fresh and tasty. (I'll assume you know what infamous scene that refers to.)  Kevin Costner gave us two epic turkeys, but putting viewers through three hours of "The Postman" is more cruel than necessary for Rifftrax.  Instead, enjoy somewhat shorter yet ridiculously overblown spectacle -- and that's just Dennis Hopper's acting.  :rimshot:

Now that you mention it, Eragon was on my list, too. I'll replace it by stressing, once again, the importance of Riffing Highlander 2.

Post by: Raven on May 13, 2007, 04:32:40 PM
Since this seems to be the place for your top ten here's mine again. 


10.  Sky Captain & the World of Tomorrow- Horrible, the only fun thing about this movie was
convincing a friend of mine that you got to see Gweneth Paltrow topless.  He fell asleep and we
kept the joke going for weeks.

9.   Congo- This one speaks for itself.  If you haven't seen it, don't.  (Unless there is a
rifftrax to go with it.)

8.   Rollerball-  This one was bad, bad, bad.  LL Cool J actually apologized for it on "The
Daily Show."  I was told that I should see this one for some nice shots of Rebecca Roman-Stamos
but when her face looks like she's been sparring with Mike Tyson, she kinda loses her sex
appeal.  But that's just me. 

7.   Deep Blue Sea- Better known in my circle as Jurassic Park Gets Wet complete with Samuel
Jackson getting eaten.  I'm sure Jurassic Park will be made and I think nature deserves an
appetizer before the main course. 

6.   Escape from LA-  I don't care if this movie was tongue and cheek when they made it.  Kurt
Russell blue screen surfing, roving bands of plastic surgeons, and more over the top acting
performances than you can shake a stick at.  Golden.

5.   Hollow Man-  To be honest, I'm almost finished with a custom riff of this one and I'd
really enjoy being compared to the big guys.  I'll let everyone know when I finish and anyone
who wants one can get a copy. 

4.   Reindeer Games-  If you've seen it you know why.  My girlfriend hates this one and I bet
her that I could get her to watch this one again.  I think if there were a Rifftrax, she'd have
no choice. 

3.   Wild Wild West-  I know that this was supposed to be a comedy and they frown on doing
comedies, but I don't think that it should count if nothing is actually funny.  And the giant
spider tank??  And Kenneth Branagh's torso and crazy beard. Funny I thought he was a good actor
until I saw this one.

2.   Flatliners-  Almost like a before they were stars.  Julia Roberts, Kevin Bacon, Keifer
Sutherland, Oliver Platt, and Tito Baldwin.  Add a ridiculous plot premise and by the end
you'll wish that they chose not to revive you. 

1.   Double Team-  This is the first movie I thought of when I heard about Rifftrax.  It's Van
Damme being Van Damme with a side of the most annoying celebrity from the 90's Dennis Rodman
and a little pinch of Tigers, yes I said Tigers.

10. Star Trek : Insurrection (1998) - The Next Generation equivalent of Star Trek V : The Final Frontier.

9.  Flash Gordon (1980) - A wonderland of riffing potential - but dependent upon a new dvd release if the experience is to be very widespread (the old one is OOP and rare - kinda like another film...)

8. Mystery Science Theater 3000 : The Movie (1996) - see above.  Except also insert the possibility of our local bit of the universe imploding.

7.  Twister (1996) - Chet is mad about Jo.  Relationships!  Divorce!  Weather!

6. Citizen Kane (1941) - Extraordinary movies require extraordinary riffs.

5.  The Phantom (1996)  - Billy Zane is no Alec Baldwin.

4. Titanic (1997) - Billy Zane is no...good... for the heroine, Rose - but luckily, eventually, kills himself .

3.  Stealth (2005) - Top Gun, Short Circuit, Fail Safe, and Firefox all rolled up into a big, beautiful katamari of craziness. Featuring Oscar Winner Jamie Foxx!!

2.  Legend (1985) - Tom Cruise, Champion of the Faeries.  Also, Tim Curry, Prince of Darkness.

1 . Torque (2004) - Just Bring It.

I noticed that the Rifftrax crew are keeping an eye on the IMDB's bottom 100, so might as well offer up some of the non-MST3K/Rifftrax related films for consideration. http://www.imdb.com/chart/bottom (http://www.imdb.com/chart/bottom)

1. Bloodrayne

2. Jaws: The Revenge

3. Stomp The Yard

4. Dirty Love (I know they won't do this movie, simply because of the scene where Jenny McCarthy discharges what seems to be about a gallon of menstrual blood on a supermarket floor)

5. Material Girls (starring the Duff sisters)

6. Alone in the Dark (Tera Reid plays the role of a scientist. 'nuff said. Well, actually, Uwe Boll directs. I guess there was more to be said after all...)

7. Ed (insert baseball-playing monkey/Matt LeBlanc joke here)

8. You Got Served (a turd. I love IMDB comments...lol)

9. Son of the Mask (see the film that spoiled the "classic image" of the 'The Mask')

10. House of the Dead (yet another Uwe Boll masterpiece)

I'm beginning to come 'round to the idea of a Uwe Boll film being riffed, but it has to be chosen delicately. I vote for Alone in the Dark simply because out of all the Boll films I think it will cause the least deaths.

2. BloodRayne (& possibly with Mary Jo Pehl?  I love her, but I can't sit through Glitter.)
3. Doom

5. Mullholland Drive (yes, David Lynch fans, I loved it too, but it was incomprehensible)
6. Days of Thunder
7. The Others
8. The Village  (did anyone else want the twist ending to be a hell of a lot darker and less predictable?  Other than that, it was great.)
9. The Chronicles of Narnia
10. The Chronicles of Riddick (what the heck kinda word is "Furian"?!)

(Additionally, if there were a rifftrax for Kill Bill, I don't think I'd be able to pass it up.  Especially if you got Mary Jo Pehl for it.  Even if you charged me an extra $2 for each volume.  Just because I'm tired of hearing about the "genius" of Tarrantino!)

If my recollection is correct, it seems as if "The Village" is fast becoming a close second behind "Batman and Robin" as 'most wanted."

And I agree with Kill Bill...I loved the flicks, but each one was soooo different, it was just kinda weird to watch.

10. Sphere (1998): Queen Latifah's death scene is why this film makes my list.
9.   Cobra (1986): Look out crime, here comes the cure.
8.   Pitch Black (2000) or Chronicles Of Riddick (2004): A Riddick film must make my list.
7.   Total Recall (1990):No comment.
6.   Star Trek Nemesis (2002): The lamest and final outing of the "next generation" cast is screaming for riffing (semi-interchangeable with Insurrection).
5.   Speed (1994): Another Keanu classic.
4.   Spacehunter: Adventures In The Forbidden Zone (1983): A cool cult-favorite that I wouldn't mind seeing riffed.
3.   Raiders Of The Lost Ark (1981): Some people would argue "Temple Of Doom" would be the most riffable and worthy of it, but I disagree, I love Raiders and wouldn't mind seeing a rifftrack of it and it's very riffable if you know where to look.
2.   Matrix Reloaded and Matrix Revolutions (2003): After seeing how Mike and Kev took care of "The Matrix" (One of their best riffs IMO) they should continue with the sequels, maybe as a two-for-one deal.

1.   Star Trek: The Motion Picture (The Director's Edition) (2001): Oh yes, The first foray of the original cast onto the big screen is very riffable and must be done. The rifftracks of the Star Trek films are something special, continue with it.

We'll never seem them tackled by Rifftrax in a million years,  well maybe once they handle the remaining four SW theatrical releases... no, it'll never happen... but a very solid suggestion nonetheless.

I like the idea of doing Wing Commander, or any video game based film for that matter, but I like seeing them go for well made and reviewed films better. It seems they would be more of a challenge to draw funny riff from.
Titanic, Aliens, and the first two Terminator films, for a Cameron list, would be cool, and how about the entire Indiana Jones series. Hard Boiled, The Killer, and FaceOff from Woo. Akira, Steamboy, and Ghost In The Shell for anime in general. The Aviator would be fun too. I realized, after watching the Casino Royale sample, I like the totally serious films getting the treatment better than the more light hearted stuff.

As for a top ten easy list well:
10: A Sound Of Thunder (I went to the theater expecting a bad movie and wound up bouncing my own riffs off my dad.)
9: The Punisher
8: Superman 4
7: Poseidon
6: Days Of Thunder (would bookend nicely with Top Gun and the inevitable Mission Impossible ones)
5: any or all of the Highlander movie
4:any or all of the Jurassic Park films
3: Superman 3( come on you know it's far worse than 4)
2: The Rundown
1: Wing Commander

Wing Commander tops my list simply because I'm a longtime hardcore Wingnut and I'm just happy the managed to get a film off the ground at all.
And please for the love of Shatner, keep the Star Trek riffs.

Post by: darth duke on June 02, 2007, 02:32:04 PM
The top 10 movies I'd like to see (or in this case, hear) riffed are:

Dr. Who and the Daleks (I'm a big Dr. Who fan, but this movie is just too cheesy even for the good Dr. I can't believe they got Peter Cushing to do it.  He must have been getting low on royalty fees from his earlier, better works).

Sword of the Valiant (Speaking of really good actors starring in really bad movies, how about this one?  Poor Sean Connery does his best to lend dignity to the role of the Green Knight despite having to suffer through acting with MSTK3 fan favorite Miles OKeeffe.  Miles gives just as an amazingly bad performance in this film as he did in Cave Dwellers even though he didn't get to be quite as naked in this one.

The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy (I'm talking about the 2005 movie that was way better on special effects but way way worse on comedy than the 1981 BBC TV series of the same name.  It would be interesting to see Mike and the gang do riffs on a movie that is full of riffs itself.

Beowulf (The Christopher Lambert version from the 80's.  It had great fight scenes in it thanks to Chris but his and everybody else's acting is too unintentionally funny to pass up riffing on.)

The Outsiders (If Mike et al enjoyed riffing on I Accuse My Parents, they'll really love this one)

Hallmark Entertainment's Jules Verne's Mysterious Island (this movie manages to pack not one, not two but three great actors into one really bad movie.  Gabrielle Anwar, Kyle Maclachlan and Capt. Picard himself Patrick Stewart give powerful performances but everything else about the film is laughable)

Timeline (the movie I love to hate.  It's my favorite bad movie of my generation.  I has so many promising moments that are actually entertaining and fun to watch but as a whole, it falls flat on it's misaligned face)

A Knight's Tale (Speaking of bad movies with medieval themes, how about this one?  It's also fun to watch but the mix of fairly believable medieval setting with 70's and 80's rock is just too weird.  My disbelief was not only not suspended, it was thrown down so hard it shattered.  Especially when the spectators started singing We Will Rock You in the otherwise excellent jousting scenes)

Beethoven (no, not a movie about the highly talented composer. The one about the slobbery St. Benard who chews, slobbers and tears up the set for almost two hours in an attempt to be funny.  Poor Charles Grodan and John Larroquette didn't deserve to be subjected to this kiddie torture.  But Judge Reinhold did)

Finally,  I submit to you Battlestar Galactica (the original series, not the supremely better new series that is kind of but not quite based on it.  I'd love to hear Mike riff on Lorne Greene's and Dirk Benedict's over acting.  Not to mention the weird robot/alien dog-like thing Muffet.)

When I first heard that they were riffing Lost: Season One, I thought they might have been doing just that. It's an interesting idea, but I don't know if Mike and Kevin want to be that committed to a series. You have to remember MST never finished any of their serials. For Rifftrax, there are long gaps between movies in the same franchise. I don't think most fans want them to limit their material now that they can to almost anything. Even the creative people behind TV shows don't provide commentary tracks to every episode. (The crew behind The Simpsons and Futurama are a notable exception.) On the other hand, it would make me feel better about the idea of eventually buying the Lost set specifically for riffs. Maybe this is more a task for some  dedicated fan riffing?
Title: Re: List the top 10 films you'd want riffed

The Lost pilot was funny. Doing the whole season would probably get really stale like the Commando Cody serial. I think I heard that after the second season of MST3K, they weren't gonna do that anymore.

If it’s not too much of a cheat, I’d like to offer some wiggle room on my list. Sort of like one of those ‘build your own meal’ menus at Applebee’s.  There’s been a lot of great suggestions so far, and I heartily second.

10.  Night of the Demons 2/ One Dark Night/ Grim Prairie Tales; A trio of undeservedly obscure fun little B-horror flicks

9. Doom; A film so bland and half assed it fails to live up to the narrative tapestry of a early 90’s first person shooter. What could have been the perfect b-movie shot to hell, only a rifftrack could wring any enjoyment out of it.

8. Billy Jack/The Trial of Billy Jack/ Billy Jack goes to Washington; I think Mike’s sort of neo-conservative viewpoints could really dig into this vapid hippie clap trap.

7. The Evil Dead/ Ravenous/Big Trouble in Little China; My three favorite films of all time. Not bad in any way but just so different that I think they lend themselves to humor.

6. The Village/ Bram Stoker’s Dracula/The Keep; It’s a sad thing when you get a pretentious director mucked up in the horror field. The genre is art because it is primal and real, affectation misses the point entirely.

5.  13 Ghosts/The Tingler/ Mr. Sardonicus; Mike’s gone toe to toe with my fav director William Castle before, let’s see if he can survive round two. (Life insurance polices are for sale in the lobby.)

4. The Beyond/Zombie; I always found Fulci to be an underrated genius, but I think Mike would find his work absolutely torturous. Like with Manos, I think humor comes from pain

3. Mortal Kombat/ Mortal Kombat Annihilation; I love the first in all its B- Chop -socky splendor. The second should be considered a war crime. Both are imminently riffable

2. BloodRayne/ House of the Dead; Like it or not Mike, you’ve got to face up to Uwe Boll some time. I’m a callin’ you out!

1. Resident Evil/ Resident Evil Apocalypse; Perhaps both the dumbest video game adaptations ever, and some of Mila Jovovich’s worst acting. And brother, that’s saying something on both counts.

Gotta add my list to the fray:

1)   DOUBLE AGENT 73 starring the unforgettable Chesty Morgan  :o
       Besides Chesty's amazing assets it's just so bad that it's tremendous fun.
2)   LEPRECHAUN -- especially if Jennifer Aniston could/would guest riff (& if not her then Brad Pitt)
3)   THE NOTORIOUS BETTE PAGE -- just 'cuz
4)   A BOY AND HIS DOG -- gotta, just GOTTA have Harlan  Ellison guest riff!!!!!
5)   WILD WILD PLANET or PLANET OF THE VAMPIRES
6)   STRAIGHT TALK with Dolly Parton (hey, if I'm gonna lead with Chesty Morgan I gotta follow through with Dolly!)
7)   KANSAS CITY BOMBER (hey, if I'm gonna follow through with Dolly I gotta sneak in Raquel Welch!)
8)   CIRCLE OF IRON -- think maybe David Carradine could be persuaded to guest riff? I think that would be cool.
9)   ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK or SWAMP THING (hey, if I'm gonna sneak in Raquel Welch I gotta include Adrienne Barbeau!)
10) GREYSTOKE

Wish list of flicks not available on legit DVD...
KILLDOZER
THE GREEN SLIME
PRAY FOR THE WILDCATS --- gotta, gotta, gotta--infinity! Just gotta do this flick! Crummy made-for-TV movie starring Andy Griffith, William Shatner, Robert Reed and Marjoe Gortner! There is just SO much potential in this movie that it can't be ignored!

Post by: shiny_jebus on June 06, 2007, 12:55:15 AM
My 2 cents ... some of these are movies I adore that would still work ...

10. The Fog/Prince of Darkness: More Carpenter, please
9. Quest for Fire - Ooga ooga
8. Vertigo- One of my all time favorites, but demented in surprising ways
7. Dead Again - Great actors, preposterous plot (you could also sub in Brannagh's Frankenstein here)
6. The Running Man - Personal favorite of the crap Governator cannon
5. Purple Rain/Under the Cherry Moon/Graffiti Bridge- Pick one if you dare
4. Death on the NIle- Taking upstaging to a new level.
3. Spice World: the Movie - Not Spice World: the Epic Tone Poem
2. Nothing But Trouble- Have you seen this? Truly, truly scary. I never looked at Dan Aykroyd the same way again.
1. JACK FROST - I shudder to even invoke the name of this monstrosity. Mike would never do it because he'd have to sit through it more than once, and I don't know if that's possible.

My god, how could I forget Viva Knievel! 1977! Drunk angry Gene Kelly! Dabny Coleman, Tijuana loony bin proprietor! Hammy Leslie Nielsen! Mr. Knievel himself jumping lions in Long Beach, my hometown! I insist, nay,demand this movie be riffed on!

2. Caravan of Courage: An Ewok Adventure (oh yes)
1.Ewoks: The Battle for Endor (evil grin)

I've never had any glaring issues with the Ewoks in RotJ... but the made for TV movies.... wow... I thought they were truly awful when I was 12 years old... and that's saying something because I liked dreck like Thundercats and Voltron back then...

We'll never seem them tackled by Rifftrax in a million years,  well maybe once they handle the remaining four SW theatrical releases... no, it'll never happen... but a very solid suggestion nonetheless.

If they riffed Trolls 2 and Crossroads, I think there could be a fair chance they could riff at least one of the Ewok movies..... right?
Title: Re: List the top 10 films you'd want riffed

Oh, that's a toughie, but I can come up with some - especially now that TV episodes are fair game.
1. Rollerball 2000 > I loved it, everyone else hates it.  I ask yet again, why???
2. A.I. > It was a challenge to watch this through!  It took a few hours to restore my faith in humanity after seeing this train wreck. :gouge:
3. Xena: Warrior Princes - A Friend In Need (series finale) > When Rob Tapert REALLY loses it! (Gabrielle: "Xena, you're dead???" Riffer: "Not again!!!")  :rimshot:
4. Star Trek 1: TMP > With the lengthy gaps feebly imitating 2001: A Space Odessey, Mike could add a fake conversation or Kevin a sarcastic ditty....
5. War of the Roses > Was that supposed to be funny?  :- I walked out of the theater feeling better after Pearl Harbor.
6. Footloose > I stopped the movie 2/3 of the way through. Can Mike Nelson help me through the rest of this turkey?
7. Dances With Wolves > Another one I stopped 2/3 of the way through - can you help???
8. Moonraker > 007 at its silliest.
9. Superman IV > How can anyone take a Superman movie seriously with Richard Pryor as the co-star and Atari 800 graphics?
10 Yellow Submarine > Let's talk through some issues: those the Beatles had and those we had in watching along.

My dream 10:

and my #1 choice for a film that needs to be riffed is....

XANADU!!!!
A Roller Skating Olivia Newton John, Gene Kelly, and that dude from the Warriors ruining his career while rejects from Studio 54 dance around and stuff? Plus it's coming to Broadway as a Broadway show in June. DO THIS ONE PLEASE!!!

Holy cow!  How could I forget this turkey!  I still watch it once in a blue moon for the great music and Olivia Newton-John in her prime. ROWR!

This is an excellent choice for riffing because even I was riffing most of it.

Top 10 Possible Riffs:

10). 8-Legged Freaks - No explanation needed. The work is almost done for the riffers already.

9). Brothers Grimm - Gilliam is great, but he must've been drunk or something when he made this one.

8). Starship Troopers - Come on! Giant bugs? Laser tattoos? Psychics? Perfect.

7). Jurassic Park 2 - One of those unfortunate instances where you'd have to watch the movie again. Worth it, though.

6). Independence Day - A world with Bill Pullman as President and Will Smith/Jeff Goldblum as heroes does not deserve to go unriffed.

5). Beastmaster - Dr. Dolittle strung-out on steroids and sexual confusion. Plus, it has Rip Torn!
 
4). Suburban Commando or Mr.Nanny -  Hulk Hogan the movie star? Well... What can you say that hasn't been already thought?

3). Super Mario Bros. - Generally speaking, video game to motion picture is not a good idea.

2).Masters of the Universe - How is it that I have seen this movie as many times as I have? A mystery I will have to live with. I'd like the next time to be a much funnier experience, though.

1). Tremors - I am surprised this movie has not been mentioned more often. Any sequel would be a good choice, but the first one has Reba...... Reba McEntire. Yup.

10.  Monster Squad -  Classic hollywood monsters face off against their most challenging foes ever, junior high school kids. 
  9.   Freejack  - Emilio Estevez, Mic Jagger, and Anthony Hopkins together for the first time, and hopefully for the last time.
  8.   Soldier  -  Kurt "the computer wore tennis shoes" Russel is a super soldier who goes Rambo on some other super soldiers who are so well trained they walk in single file and don't even need to use battle tactics,  and it all takes place in the future on a garbage planet.
  7.    Alien Ressurection - aliens using their projectile teeth to press buttons even though they have hands with fingers, Sigourney Weaver making out with an alien,  the pokemon like variety of aliens to choose from(some spit, some swim, some dance the cha cha) Wynona Ryder and the the worst band of pirates to ever walk the space plank.
  6.    Big Trouble in Little China -  I do love this movie, but what couldn't be made fun of in it? 
  5.    Superman Returns - For a movie about  Superman, he has the smallest part in the film.  And what is Lex's obession with land developement?  And why did we need to add a kid to the mix?  Apparently  Superman wasn't Super enough to be the focus of his own movie.
  4.    Bloodrayne -  its' just begging to be riffed.  Ben Kingsley was obviously paid not only by the word, but for every single movement aswell it seems.  And Michael Madsen was doing his best Shatner impression it seemed.  It was a movie based on a video game and it showed, it even had boss fights for crying out loud.
  3.    Ghostrider - Nicholas Cage as a comic book hero, need i say more?
  2.     X-Men 3 -  From Storms super spinning combat move, to the villians throwing a guy off a roof just so his son who can fly in and save him thus proving to his father that mutant powers are a good thing,   nothing can save this movie from it's own lack of plot.
   1.    Tomb Raider 1 or 2 -  They're really just the same movie,  neither has a coherent plot, or anything that anyone with some level of self respect could call a script.

Kurt Russel is a good actor.  At making action movies that need riffing.  And for some unknown reason whenever I see them at Walmart for under $10 I end up buying them.  (I think that's why he was in so many of the ones I listed.)

Thought I'd come up with some that may or may not have been suggested:

-Black Dog : It's Swayze and its about truckers.  Unless this isn't readily available on DVD, it seems like a must
-Rumble in the Bronx: I don't think Jackie Chan is untouchable, and you might as well riff this piece of crap.  Take out the amazing stunts and you've got a very riffable movie
-The Life of David Gale:  I'm going with the Wickerman as an example of how a boring, unwatchable movie with an incredibly ridiculous ending could be riffed.  One of Kevin Spacey's worst movies.
-Tucker:  The man and his Dream:  Lucas has been associated with some pretty dumb movies other than Star Wars (Ex: Howard the Duck and Willow), but this is really my least favorite because of the build-up for me.  Really, who cares about a failed automobile.
-Moonwalker:  I have no idea why I liked this movie as a child.  Plus, you've got Joe Pesci with a phallic pony tail.  Definitely the movie that started his downward decline mentally

As for five that have been suggested (or not, but who's counting  :) )
Species
Batman and Robin
Constantine
Cool as Ice
Leonard Part 6

Well, I've notice a certain genre of moives that havent been riffed that would be completly hilarious. I dont know if there is exactly 10, but I will do my best. This is as VIDEO GAME to MOVIE top 10 list.

10. Silent Hill - havent seen this moive, but a rifftrax would change that quick.
9. Mortal Kombat - 4 of the greatist fighters from around the world are chosen by the god of lightning to join a tournament called "Mortal Kombat". Come on, this is prime riffing matterial.
8. Tomb Raider - A bombshell archaeologists goes galavanting around the world in tight cloths. I mean, come on, this is screaming "Come RIFF ME"!!!
7. Resident Evil - People traped in a city over run by zombies? What isnt there to like about this movie (besides that it had very little to do with the actualy characters in the video game)
6.Double Dragon - Wow, two brothers are given powers and......other stuff.....that something to do......with a game.....i think.
5. House of the Dead - based off of a popular first person arcade shooter. Possably one of the worst films ever created.
4. DOOM - starring Dwane "The Rock" Johnson. A special team is sent up to mars to resuce a research team. Based off a freakishly fun windows 98 first person shooter game. I mean, come on....its starring The Rock!
3. Dungeons and Dragons - Starring some people and scar from "The Lion King".
2. Street Fighter: The Movie - all I can say about this is......Jean Claud Van Damn
1. Super Mario Bros: The Movie - need I say more???? Well, in case I do I will. Two plumbers are transferd to a post apocalyptic New York City while trying to save a princess from the evil Denis Hopper. Not to be confused with the game where two plumbers are mysteriously transported to a colorful Mushroom Kingdom where they have to save a princess from the evil Turtle King Bower.

Well, I hope these at least spark some interest or fond (I use that term loosely) memories. I cant wait for the next rifftrax.

1. The Shadow
"who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men?  apparently alec baldwin does."


You know, sometimes I forget that there are movies out there like Mercury Rising.  I think Bruce is trying to protect the autistic kid from Alec Baldwin, too.

Bloodsport

Mirrormask(!)
Gun Crazy(Japanese 'girls w/guns' film)
Crash(Cronenberg)
2001:A Space Odyssey
Zardoz
The Village
Pi
Purple Rain

I actually saw 2001 riffed at Balticon (a science fiction convention in Baltimore) one year, by two robots and a guy in a jumpsuit. (Wonder where they got that idea from?)  The film was heavily cut (which MST3K did a lot), and the riffing was uneven, but consider it proof of concept.

I really don't have anything else to say, except:  soundmanmike, that is one fine Avatar.  ;)

Any Harry Potter Film would rock to be riffed...But I'm going to have to say that I would love to see a Bob Jones University Film Riffed (mostly because they are aweful). My 2cents.

Post by: rocket9 on June 24, 2007, 04:38:41 PM
Ok, I have a real list now. Movies I'd like to see riffed, in no particular order:

1. Equilibrium - Craptacular Orwellian future romp with gun-fu.
2. Logan's Run - Brilliantly dull 1970's journey to save the 30-75 demographic.
3. Dune (original theatrical release) - So much room to riff...and its the basis of so many other riffs.
4. Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within - just because
5. Starship Troopers - campy enough to be funny on its own, I can see the riffability with all the ultra-violence
6 . Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome - the cheesiest of the series. Tina Turner and Master Blaster are reason enough.
7. Dark City - goofy looking villains and inflatable scenery
8. The 13th Warrior - Vikings!
9. Labyrinth - Bowie in a codpiece. Blossoming Jennifer Connolly.
10. Batman (the Burton one) - just because, as a previous poster mentioned, Burton seems incapable of laughing at himself.

1. From Justin to Kelly.  Like Glitter, but more cliched.
2. Meet the Robinsons.  I hated myself for watching it.
3. Rocky III-VI.  The other two are OFF LIMITS.
4. Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom.  Docta Jones!  EENDEEEE!  Docta Jones!  EENDEEEE!   Docta Jones!  EENDEEEE!   Docta Jones!  EENDEEEE!   Docta Jones!  EENDEEEE!   Docta Jones!
5. Total Recall.  Get your ass to MARS!
6. Pirates of the Caribbean.  MONKEY!
7. Beverly Hills, 90210, the pilot episode, available on DVD.
8. Hulk.
9. Grease 2.
10. Moonraker.  A rare misstep for the usually brilliantly entertaining James Bond series.

8. The 13th Warrior - Vikings!

Sadly the only movie I'm aware of that doesn't have the Vikings wearing horns or fur loincloths is an otherwise unremarkable film. My only other options for movie barbarians are, what, the first 15 minutes of Gladiator and Pathfinder? My only condolance is that comic book fans have it about as bad.

Post by: Jormungandr on June 25, 2007, 02:02:55 AM
I actually have a list of the top ten worst movies I've ever seen...
1. Starcrash -- a 1979 vintage pile of starwars knockoff crap that starts a SMOKING SMOKING hot woman whose main function appears to be looking awesome in a bikini. Favorite line from the movie "The evil Count's weapon could be there. Scan it with our computer waves."

2. Svankmajer's  Faust -- This movie makes anti sense. Favorite line "What my brain cannot comprehend / might go in the other end!"

3. Starwars Holiday Special -- I doubt Mike will do this one, which is why I am going to see if I can.

4. Neco z Alenky By the guy who did Faust -- This movie has puppets, and I think it is based on Alice in Wonderland. Plus it has a White Rabbit who keeps leaking sawdust and eating it. No favorite line, but at one point a mouse makes a campfire on Alice's head.

5. SHOGUN ASSASSIN --! The movie that brought us extremely hypertensive villains and badly done kung-fu fighting. Favorite line Woman: "I am the supreme Ninja!" Man:"*GRUNT*"

6. The Blob -- 1958 Lots of comedic potential in this -- scared the crap outta me as a kid. Favorite line "*WHAM* You think its gone?"

7. Dead Alive -- Uhhhh, a Zombie flick, I think. There's a hairless killer rat. and a kung-fu priest. Favorite line 'I kick ass for the Lord!"

8. Any of the Evil dead movies -- You could 'prolly convince Bruce Campbell to help riff them too.

9. Forbidden Zone This movie is hilariously and intentionally bad. Favorite line: King:"Oh my sweet, I will have Zombie astronauts!" (I forget the exact line but it was something about zombies in space.) I realize that there is a female character that spends the entire movie topless... Which just adds to the fun! That shouldn't interfere with  a riff though, right?

10. Jesus Christ: Vampire Hunter. Staring 'El Santos' the guy from Samson Vs the Vampire Women. Vampires are killing lesbians in Toronto? A clown based atheist group wants to kill Jesus. There is a character called 'oddbottom' Favorite line: "Hi dad! (Jesus talking to an apparently sentient bowl of icecream, while eating it)"

Post by: there_is_no_spoon on June 25, 2007, 11:18:08 PM
Lots of cool suggestions so far.

My list is full of ones already suggested, but they're just so good (or is it bad?) that they must be reiterated.

10. Willow - I love this movie, but it's just too good a target.
09. Planet of the Apes - Another movie I love, but again, the potential is so great.
08. Godzilla (1998 remake) - Obvious, I think.
07. Mortal Kombat 2 - The Unholy Video Game trilogy, part 1
06. Super Mario Bros. - The Unholy Video Game trilogy, part 2
05. Street Fighter: The Movie - yadda yadda yadda, part 3 - What I like about these 3 is you don't have to know anything about the games to realize their badness.
04. Rollerball (2002 remake) - An unbelievable mess, seemingly cobbled together at the last minute out of broken dreams and duct tape.
03. Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot - ... yeah
02. Batman & Robin - I will quote the esteemed Michael J. Nelson: "Batman & Robin is not the worst movie ever. No, indeed. It's the worst thing ever. Yes, it's the single worst thing that we as human beings have ever produced in recorded history."
And yet I top it with, yes,
01. Xanadu - This has to be the worst, most pointless movie I've ever seen. Ever.

I considered mentioning Baby Geniuses or The Adventures of Pluto Nash but then I realized, no, I would never actually wish those movies upon a fellow human being.

I agree with many of your guys' other choices, but c'mon, The 13th Warrior? The Day After Tomorrow? I actually enjoyed those movies. Maybe that says more about me than anything else.

And Silent Hill? The Passion of the Christ? Really? I can't imagine anything funny enough to make me laugh during those horrific torture scenes.

10. Moonraker.  A rare misstep for the usually brilliantly entertaining James Bond series.

I see a lot of people have suggested this and although it is bad, for my money the Bond film that most needs riffing is A View To A Kill.

It's got an aging Roger Moore AND Christopher Walken, for Jeebus sake!
Title: Re: List the top 10 films you'd want riffed
Post by: Cynical Bastard on June 26, 2007, 04:12:22 AM
I'm loving these riffs!!!

Here's my list.

1. Star Wars Episode 3-  "Anakin you're breaking my heart!!!"
2. Tango and Cash- The homo erotic adventures of Sly Stallone and Kurt Russel
3. Dirty Dancing- "Nobody puts baby in a corner."
4. Original Planet of the Apes or any of the sequels.  I'd like to see the crew have a serious debate about ape law
5. Adventures in Babysitting.- Elizabeth Shoe as the worst babysitter ever.
6. TimeCop- possibly the worst time travel flick ever, plus I think Van Dam is ripe for riffing.
7. Soylient Green- Cannibalism and a prostitute comes free with every Apartment!!!!!
8. Zardoz- Seriously I watched this on cable a while back and I'm still trying to figure it out.
9. Rain Man- Come on Hoffman's antics and Cruise with typical over the top acting is a riff made in heaven.
10. Young Guns-  Rejected Brat Pack members decide to make a Western.

I don't think enjoying a movie does precludes it from being riffed on. I like many of the films on my list, including 13th Warrior, but it would still be a fun movie to riff on.

I'm also digging McGruber's entire list.

But honestly, as long as the RiffTrax keep coming, I'm a happy camper.

1. Star Wars Episode 3-  "Anakin you're breaking my heart!!!"
You know, that is the only line and the only time in any of the prequels when she managed to actually
act. I think that take actually made it into the film by accident, because everyone knows that Lucas
only uses takes where his actors are not acting at all. I think he tried to fix it with ADR but it just didn't
work as Portman refused to record anymore lines.

Post by: Shannihilator on June 26, 2007, 04:03:19 PM
1 - Cyber Seduction: His Secret Life.
Theres a myriad of tacky Lifetime movies that deserve a good riffing, but this particular film NEEDS it. It's a fantastically bad wake up call to parents about the dangers of clothed pg rated internet porn addictions. Think Reefer Madness, with a woman's touch.

2 - Just One of the Guys
About a moderately attractive girl in high school who wants to become a journalist, but doesn't think anyone takes her seriously, so she chops off her hair, wears her younger brother's clothes and weasels her way into a high school across town as a tough talking teenage male creature. Gratuitous topless shot at the end.

3 - Noone Would Tell
Bad TV movie with Fred Savage and DJ from Full House. Another "warning" film that needs a riff.

4 - Enter the Dragon
I love this movie, but I'd love to see a good riffing of this one.

5 - Mommie Dearest
John Waters refers to this film as "The first comedy about child abuse."

6 - Berry Gordy's The Last Dragon
Bruce Leroy and SHO'NUFF! the Shogun of Harlem. To quote G.O.B., "COME ON!"

7 - Purple Rain and Under the Cherry Moon
This might've been suggested, but I don't care! They're bad enough to deserve em

8 - The Dentist, Ice Cream Man and Dr. Giggles. A triple header!

9 - Three Ninjas 1 through 3

10 - Stepfather III

10. Shark Attack 3: Megalodon
9. Beneath Still Waters
8. 300
7. The Item
6. The Village
5. Commando
4. On Deadly Ground
3. Tales from the Crypt: Bordello of Blood
Although you can argue the "crappiness" of the movie was intentional, this a strong contender either way for raw riff material.

2. Fist of the North Star (The animated movie)
It's one of my favorite anime series, but this movie's outright sillyness is in the meteoric levels. The movie centers around Kenshiro, a man who's mastered a martial art that essentially entails that everything he punches will explode, including, but not limited to: Buildings, Vehicles, Armor, and, especially, henchman's faces. Also contains ridiculously giant men, another martial artist whose fingers slice everything they touch into bite-sized pieces, and what might be the most over-the-top final battle in movie history. A sample of the film: http://www.badmovies.org/multimedia/moviesl/fistnorthstar1.mpg

This movie is barely beaten out by:

1. COBRA! with Sylvester Stallone

Honestly, if Over the Top got the RT treatment, then this one is BEGGING to be done too. This is essentially a time-capsule on all of the laughably bad action films of the 80s, down to the crappy one-liners and do-nothing heroine. A few gemstones that I think solidify this movie for the  RT treatment:

A homeless person/robot montage. Yes, you heard me right
Cobretti, the lead, cuts a slice of pizza width-wise with a pair of scissors, and puts his newspaper in a grill
Cobretti rips a man's shirt off in the middle of an argument FOR NO REASON
Cobretti douses a henchman in gasoline and lights him on fire and quips "You have the right to remain silent"
Practically writes the book on bad one-liners (You're the disease, and I'm the cure)

8. The Italian Job (2003)
9. Death Race 2000
10. 2010: The Year We Made Contact(*)

(*)...I was going to suggest 2001: a space oddesey, but there's very little you can can do when the characters have very little dialogue. 2010 seemed more of a good target for a riffing.

The Big Chill - an okay movie until the ridiculous final act and the sitcom-style wrap-up
Contact - a lot of potential here
Enemy of the State
eXistenZ
Footloose
Pleasantville
Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves

Additionally - Any Minnesota located movie  (Jingle all the Way, Mighty Ducks, Little Big League, etc) - so Mike can riff on his (and my) home state

Okay, it's been over 5 months since my original list, so here's another. I lean towards older films, probably because I am an older guy, lol. I don't care if they are cheesy to begin with or considered classics... as long as they are entertaining.

1. Fantastic Voyage (Raquel Welch and Donald Pleasance)
(http://www.geocities.com/Hollywood/Set/1817/fvoyage/fv-pos.jpg)

2. West Side Story (why not a musical?)
(http://www.iproceed.com/images/west-side-story.jpg)

3. Ice Station Zebra (submarine movies rock)
(http://www.digitallyobsessed.com/cover_art2/icestationzebra.jpg)

4. Andromeda Strain (cool early Crichton)
(http://images.amazon.com/images/P/6305077487.01.LZZZZZZZ.jpg)

5. Westworld (where nothing can go worng)
(http://imagesource.allposters.com/images/pic/MG/198246~Westworld-Posters.jpg)

6. Halloween 3 (since it had nothing to do with all the others)
(http://ruthlessreviews.com/pics5/halloween3a.jpg)

7. Close Encounters of the Third Kind (it's really just a big Simon game)
(http://files.myopera.com/elcid73/files/close.jpg)

8. The Shining (JACK!)
(http://k-punk.abstractdynamics.org/archives/shining.jpg)

9. Billy Jack (so perfect on so many levels)
(http://nmfilmmuseum.org/history/PHOTOS/mavericks04_.jpg)

10. North By Northwest (great Hitchcock)
(http://www.movieposter.com/posters/archive/main/22/b70-11118)

Honorable Mention: Bullitt (just for the car chase)
(http://artfiles.art.com/images/-/Bullitt-Poster-C10126174.jpeg)

Fame - Season One - Episode One
Title: Re: List the top 10 films you'd want riffed
Post by: Fox in the Stars on July 12, 2007, 07:43:25 PM
Conflating some of the series into one entry...

1. Spider-Man 2 (Oooh, I want to see this riffed so bad...  Do what you want with 1 and 3, but please!)
2. X-Men 2 (want this almost as bad---any Marvel Comics tie-in movie would be good, really)
3. Matrix Reloaded/Revolutions.
4. Scanners.  Ohh, it's a classic...
5. Super-Man 3 and/or 4
6. Gone with the Wind (always wanna take GwtW down a notch...)
7. Any of the Rankin-Bass marionation holiday specials, ie Rudolph or Santa Claus Is Coming to Town (Keenan Wynn!  Burgermeister Meisterburger!  Young Mrs. Claus has an acid trip!)
8. 80's flashback cartoon movies, ie Care Bears, My Little Pony, Transformers, He-Man/She-Ra, etc.
9. Another oldschool fan, I'll say Fritz Lang's "Spies."
10. I'd like to see some anime, not so particular what.  Spriggan comes to mind, um, original Vampire Hunter D, oh take your pick...

This is just off the top of my head; Spidey 2 and the other Marvel offal were the main things I wanted to get in...

How bout "The End of Evangelion"? I'd love to see what Mike and crew make out of that one. Any DBZ or Sailor Moon episode would work as well.
Here's my list in no particular order:
Speed 2-This one would be an easy target. Bad acting, cheesy dialogue, stupid story aka perfect rifftrax fodder.
Super Mario Bros.-Self Explanatory.
The Day After Tomorrow-Where your biggest fear is escaped wolves from the local zoo...
Rankin Bass's Return of the King-The old eighties animated version of Tolkien's classic featuring: Orcs that turn into fuzzy animals, a Nazgul Lord
who can't speak proper English and of course "FRODO OF THE NIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIINEEEEEEEE FINGERS!" I used to love this as a kid, but it is an
easy target.
You Got Served-Or any of those over done teenage dance/singing movies.
Happily N'Ever After- A pointless, boring, and cliched all patched into one really bad animated feature. Complete with Freddy Prince Jr.
Any Pokemon movie

That's all I got for now.

Title: Re: List the top 10 films you'd want riffed
Post by: Plastic Self-Cleaning Duck on July 14, 2007, 11:53:50 PM
In no particular order....

Attack of the 50ft. Woman (the original - it just came out on DVD cheap)
Showgirls
Flashdance
Can't Stop The Music
Konga

Grease  (and/or Two of a Kind, if it's in print)
Carrie (the Brian DePalma one)
The Black Hole

Anything from this set:
(http://ec1.images-amazon.com/images/I/51LvCFUiW9L._SS500_.jpg)

(this is out of print already???)

And possibly Nosferatu....the original FW Murnau one, not the Klaus Kinski one (although...)

Looking to the future....Hairspray (the new one with John Travolta - because I think that's going to suck)


On that note...I want to add another musical thingy to be riffed:   Fame - Season One - Episode One

The series, I don't know....but the actual movie, Fame....that would be worth seeing.

And, speaking of TV series....I'd suggest the first episode of Enterprise....but who wants to sit through that again?    ;)

Loads.  In fact there was a "Made for the Sci-Fi Channel" one on last night called SuperGator that would be perfect if it ever comes out on DVD.

Dementia 13 was produced by Corman.  Not the best film in the world.  Battle Beyond the Stars - a rehash of The Magnificent Seven in space starring Richard Thomas - is Corman too.  Don't know if that's still on DVD though.

I remember Battle Beyond the Stars. Man, when I was a wee tyke, I thought that was cool stuff, not thinking that it was a complete blatant Star Wars rip-off with significantly less money.

What about a riff on "The Jerky Boys"?

You couldn't pay a lot of us to watch that....even with a Rifftrax.

Might as well do another Adam Sandler movie.  I mean these aren't like the old show or the "Annual Blockbuster Reviews" where the movies were cut down or only clips were used.  Sitting through every freaking minute of these crappy movies can get to be a real chore.

I don't know about anyone else but I never even thought about getting Crossroads for that reason.  I can't envision sitting through that film.  Even if Joel had been riffing on it.  I know friends who have tried and later agreed with me....they couldn't make it through that whole movie.

10. Street Fighter: The Movie - Because Van Damme needs to be riffed
9. The Delta Force - because Chuck Norris doesn't do pushups, he pushes the world down
8. The Borne Identity (or Supremicy) - Just think it lends itself to riffing
7. Paycheck - Ben Affleck needs to be riffed again
6. Deep Blue Sea - Any Movie where Sam Jackson dies and LL Cool J survives needs to be riffed
5. Robin Hood: Prince of Theves - We all went to 7th grade dances where the theme is played
4. Swordfish - All of the 7 internets requires it
3. National Treasure - Nicholas Cage is always fun to riff
2. Gone in 60 Seconds - See: Reason for #3
1: Under Siege - c'mon it's Segal

Mike wouldn't be able to save the "The Jerky Boys", in other words.

How about some of the 80s Sci-Fi classics?

* Tron
* The Flight of the Navigator
* The Explorers (With River Pheonix and Ethan Hawke)
* The Last Starfighter
* The Black Hole

Or...let's go a bit further back:

* Xanadu
* Zardoz
* Logan's Run
* Alien
* At The Earth's Core
* Audrey Rose
* The Brood
* Capricorn One
* Empire of the Ants

And...or course...

* Kingdom of the Spiders

I don't think there's any hate for Alien, or any other suggestion for that matter. A movie doesn't have to be terrible to be a riff candidate (although I admit it helps). Some people (I think) suggest movies they like, just to see them get the treatment. It's fun to see a movie you already like get riffed... and it's a lot easier than trying to sit through Castle of Fu Manchu lol...

Just my interpretation... personally,  don't think any film is above being riffed.
Title: Re: List the top 10 films you'd want riffed
Post by: Super Monkey Death Car on July 16, 2007, 12:43:28 PM
For example, I am a LOTR fanatic...but after watching LOTR a few hundred times, it's nice to see a different interpretation of it (IE: The Riff Trax)

It's not a question of hate, it's a matter of having a sense of humour.

Actually...Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan may be a good candidate.

...an even better candidate:
Star Trek (the original series): Where No Man Has Gone Before

riff 10, eh? this should be simple enough...
 10: Black Dahlia
    *the charm of a colonoscopy with the plot continuity of a Rodger Corman flm*
  9: Open Water
    *thrill-a minute suspence cavlecade on par with the opening driving scene of Manos-The Hands Of Fate*
  8: Bhram Stoker's Dracula
    *or any other film where Anthony Hopkins scrumps someones leg*
  7: The Fugitive
    *outhouse...doghouse...wafflehouse...coffeehouse...bauhaus...the possibilities are endless!*
  6: saw
    *i think DisembAudio would enjoy this one with all the evil disembodied voice and all*
  5: the Wizard of Oz
    *this falls under 'why the hell not?'*
  4: clerks 2
    *or any Kevin Smith movie for that matter...except jersy girl...i am merciful.*
  3: queen of the damned
    *the special effects leave something to be desired...like skill*
  2: Krull
    *have you seen krull...?*

and the one movie i wild currently line to see riffed the most...

  1: Snakes On A Plane
    *somewhere in the grand esoteric cosmos, i beleive that their exists a higher and nigh-incomprehensible form of natural order. to whit, i beleive that Muthaphukkin' snakes on a muthaphukkin' plane and rifftrax were each set in motion by a conspiring astral force to compliment one another. Mystery science theatre 3000? pulp fiction? mere vehicles, my good friend; vectors by which the possibility of snakes and rifftrax were made actual and co-existant. a rifftrak for snakes on a plane would, in my humble perspective, complete the natural cycle of human endevor.*
I cant read all of these tonight, but open water, I forgot about that crap movie......but if the people in charge read this  PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE do lost in translation, please give me a reason for owning this overratted piece of $%$%#  Thank you.............M

I'll steer clear of the obvious ones (Godzilla (1998), ID4, Batman & Robin, Alone in the Dark), I agree with most of those suggestions.  Here's a couple that might not have been mentioned as much:

Driven- This is my number one pick, it's perfect fodder:  Sly Stallone? check.  Horrible action director? check.  Silly special effects? check.  bad plot and melodrama? check.  Burt Reynolds?  oh yeah, check.

Varsity Blues- We haven't really been given a proper sports movie yet...I can't count arm-wrestling as a "sport" in Over The Top.  This movie goes for the MTV vibe of all style, no substance.  Bad acting, bad script, and a great little "whipped cream bikini" scene for Kevin to oogle over.

It's great! And I'm not saying it as a fan of gross horror movies - I don't really like the "gorn" genre - but I think the movie manages to go beyond the limits of its genre (A Miike hallmark, I must say) and make about all kinds of stuff.  It's just a pity that it's been out there long enough now that people know what to expect.

Well, Miike's stuff was pretty unknown until recently, I was just glad to watch it without any knowledge of the guy's works.  I think he's great, hit-and-miss sure, but one of the most interesting directors out there.

the title of most shocking horror film ever will always be Visitor Q, not what I would call a good movie, but man does it stay with with you for a while... yikes

I'm a long-time horror movie fan (and closet Nipponphile), so I've known about Miike for a while.  I will say that his stuff is pretty spoiler-safe if only for the fact that what happens to his characters (passively) is not as shocking as what they do.  His movies don't pack the same punch in a verbal re-telling; you really have to see them, and even if you knew what was coming next, I have a feeling you'd still be appropriately horrified.

Agreed.  I love the endings to the first two Dead or Alive movies, but when I've tried to recount them to people, they give me a look as if I'm crazy and tell me that's the worst thing they've ever heard.

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!  Those movies are fantastic, and I know what you mean.

I have a friend who can actually eat pudding during those movies.  I swear on a stack of Christopher Moore books.

You guys are CRAZY! Krull was an awsome movie, it was a totaly origional story with good effects fro it's day. The only thing that movie needed was a few better actors. And Zoolander was absolutly wonderfull, I still laugh when I think about that movie, "DAMN THAT HANSEL, HE'S SO HOT RIGHT NOW!!!". And to the guy who said willow, come on that movie was great. What the hell movies do you watch?!! That artsy crap like Donnie Darko or the Piano? Gimmie a break. Let me guesse you think Citizen Cane was a great movie. IT"S HIS GODDAMN SLED!! WHO CARES!!! Not all movie need to be superinovative or origional, they just have to be enjoyable.

Here are some movies that need riffing

1.Independance Day
2. Rocky and Bullwinkle(DeNiro's finest)
3.Super Mario Brothers(Where are the italians?)
4.Waterworld
5.Troll 1
6.Magnolia(Booooooooring! and pretentious)

The Dentist? . . . The tooth pulling tongue cutting gum ripping extravaganza?
The only movie I couldn't watch parts of. I have kind of a fear of dentistry..
yeah, that one. but its cheesy to where it desperately needs a good riffing. theres a whole slew of hilariously bad early to mid 90s horror movies that hella deserve a good riffing, one i saw recently called "schools out". badly dubbed german version of scream.

holy crud, i was thinking sailor moon as well. i was watching a few episodes as a sort of flashback to my childhood..man did i ever overlook the whole formulaic routine episode thing.

10. "Pitch Black"
Ven Diesel is let loose in a studio without a lighting crew, what else did the producers expect?
9. "The Chronicles of Narnia"
If you want an easy Riff, go for a movie with child actors, it's like dynamiting fish in a pet shop.
8. "Cat in the Hat" or "The Grinch Who Stole Christmas"
If you want to take a look into the mind of Dr. Seuss you'd better have a spoon ready... to gouge your eyes out.
7. "Napolean Dynamite"
You either love it or you hate it. Either way there's no plot... perfect 8)
6. "House of Wax"
Paris Hilton, 'nuff said
5. "Lemony Snickets: A Series of Unfortunate Events"
If you can't Riff Jim Carry, who can you Riff?
4. "Kangaroo Jack"
I know this is no longer about torture, but just for old times sake.
3. "Kung-Fu Hustle"
Dancing gangsters, roaring women, deadly musicians, and all about kung-fu... Should I continue?
2. "Ong-Bak"
Elephants, restraunts, and sweat; mmmm I can smell the Riffomatic scent from here.

1. "Alien Vs. Predator"
"I know lets make a movie based off a mediocre game that's based off two okay movies! Then we'll use obscure actors, that way everyone will blame their acting, and not our writing!" Paul W.S. Anderson*

but there have been a few comedy-like movies, like fifth element, and Willy Wonka, but what i think what i was tring to say was that if the movies if tounge-in-cheek tone  to them,  it dosent exactly lend well to riffing, plus on MST3K, they had the luxury of editing the movie down, where as RiffTrax, they cant.....

10 - Aliens versus Predator - Fairly easy mark with this one.

9 - Mosquito - Hard to not riff this one, it was so bloody ridiculous.

8 - Any of the Howling Movies - Especially Howling 2, since Reb Brown (From Space Mutiny) Does his trademark "Waaugh!" a lot.

7 - Starship Troopers

6 - Resident Evil 1 or 2 - Two is probably the worst thing committed to film

5 - Narnia - Same kind of theme as Lord of the Rings.

4 - Star Wars Episode III - Complete the Prilogy.

3 - Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children - I personally thought it was a silly film.

2 - Serenity - I love this film, so naturally I want to see it riffed.

1 - Van Hellsing - The only film I've bought from a bargain bin and still thought I wasted money.

sucks we gotta wait until September... I want to see that movie NOW already. Kinda funny that the trailer showed another glimpse of Milla in a lab, I'd be willing to bet that Milla gets naked in this again. Not that I'm overly exited about the possibilities or anything (we've all seen it) but find it interesting to be the only mainstream trilogy to feature the lead actress nude in every film. ;D
Can't wait for the sequel though, don't understand the haters, these movies are pure popcorn action fun.

Starship Troopers, being awesomely camp and fun as hell, and one of my favorite movies ever, is perfect for riffing.

Snakes on a Plane....perhaps it's too easy, but i think the popularity aspect for it is enough to warrant a good riffing.

Any Harry Potter movie. probably should've made a Rifftrax during the HP craze a week ago, but i have NO complaints with 300.

Mac & Me....pathetic cheesy 80's kids movie that's a ripoff of E.T. lots of product placement and a kid in a wheelchair flying off a cliff!

Also any movie that's currently in the theaters so we can try it at the theater with an iPod or whatever. would be interesting. but people would stare if you're laughing for no reason...

9. Vamp - Think a low-rent "Blade" with a fanged Grace Jones (she arguably pioneered the high-top fade).
8. Tank Girl - A punk-rock chick that sometimes changes into a cartoon.
7. Cool World - Brad Pitt gets trapped in a Ralph Bakshi animation.
6. Toys - If you ever get Joel Hodgson to guest-riff, you gotta have him do this one.
5. Gigli - Nuff said.
4. Midnight Madness - It's Road Rules set in 1980, headed by some hairy geek named Leon and featuring Michael J. Fox and Pee Wee Herman before they got famous.

I'm a new participant to the Round Table, but I've enjoyed reading others' comments.

I have a few suggestions of films deserving riffing.  How about "Firebirds", "Masters of the Universe" (the He-Man one with Dolph), "Garfield", and "Wing Commander".  Those are all pretty terrible movies, right?  I mean, I've never been the voice of a Tom Servo or acted as a Mike Nelson, but I can't help thinking these would make good RiffTrax subjects.

1) Waterworld.   WORST movie ever made (at least Eragon had a kick-ass dragon, but that was about it, and Eragon's been done).

2) Independence day.
"Why?  That's why!" "Oh, is the smog really that bad?"

3) Hannibal.  If there is a really good story, Ridley Scott CAN screw it up.

4) Legend.  See previous.
In one scene, Tim Curry (as Dark) is under ultraviolet light with a lot of photoreactive makeup.  Hey, it's Satan at a rave!
In another scene, Tom Cruise is holding a fox.  Never mind the rabies.
So we have a human, an elf, and two dwarves...all we need are another human and four hobbits, and we've got the complete set!
"Do you mean to eat me?" "Indeed I do!" "Don't I get a saving throw?"
"The sun is my enemy!" "That and Rocky Horror floor shows!" Should Tim Curry be shouting out his weakness where everyone can hear it?

5) Harry Potter and the Sorceror's Stone.  A prepubescent mage with more balls than a quidditch game.  Okay, maybe you need to read the book first to figure that one out...

6) Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.  The modern one.
"Everything in this room is edible, including me!" "In other words, bite me!"

7) Blood and Chocolate.
"Hey, wolf girl!" "Oh crap, he's seen me and I haven't had my flea dip yet!"
"If you make it to the river, you win your life." "And you get an oompaloompa song before we kill you."
"So, what is it, are blood and chocolate the two new tastes that taste great together?"

8) Dragonheart.  As a movie it was only "okay."  But it has a helluva lot of opportunities for riffs.
"So it was you who killed the scarred one.  She and I were going to start over." "I hadn't gotten any in three hundred years, you know!  Thanks a LOT, Bowen!"
"I only chewed in self defense.  But I didn't swallow!" Ladies and gentlemen, President Draco Clinton.

9) Dragonheart: A new beginning.  This movie falls just short of acceptable into "subpar."  Probably worse.
At the end of the movie...their adventures are cut short when Anne McCaffrey slapped Drake with a thousand lawsuits.

10) Congo.  This one is just one level above the atrocity that was Eragon.  Even Crichton was angry with what they did to this movie.

) Legend.  See previous.
In one scene, Tim Curry (as Dark) is under ultraviolet light with a lot of photoreactive makeup.  Hey, it's Satan at a rave!
In another scene, Tom Cruise is holding a fox.  Never mind the rabies.
So we have a human, an elf, and two dwarves...all we need are another human and four hobbits, and we've got the complete set!
"Do you mean to eat me?" "Indeed I do!" "Don't I get a saving throw?"
"The sun is my enemy!" "That and Rocky Horror floor shows!" Should Tim Curry be shouting out his weakness where everyone can hear it?

Legend was hard to sit through.....but never because of Tim Curry.  He's the one thing that made it tolerable.

1.  The Devil's Rain 

What what what? How did BBI overlook this gem? It stars Ernest Borgnine as a high satanic priest (reprising his role from Merlin's Shop of Mystical Wonders, apparently), and features John Travolta and William Shatner as hapless mortals caught in his web of evil, deceit, and of course, laughable sub-sitcom acting.

2.  G.I. Samurai

Q : What do you get when you send a platoon of Japanese W.W. II soldiers back in time to feudal Japan?  A : One of the worst movies ever made.  This film is actually laughable, and is a relatively low-pain, easy-to-riff-on film, until near the end, when a shrill, repetitive childrens' chorus will cut you like a knife, and make you want to commit seppuku, taking the only honorable way out of finishing the movie.

3.  Death Mask of the Ninja 

One of those movies that was probably a lot more entertaining in its original language, Chinese, but after the three holy fools (mentally retarded Shaolin monks who are half Bruce Lee, and half Larry/Curly/Moe) are dubbed into English, they all come out sounding like Eric Idle, making this action-filled kung fu film so much buffoonery and laughter.

4.  The Terror

A crappy film even by Roger Corman's standards; I won't spoil the plot for you, but suffice to say it involves an hour and a half of a young Jack Nicholson pretending to be a French officer, without displaying any kind of accent, or acting for that matter.  It also involves him unsuccessfully pursuing the ghost of a girl he's smitten with, and being attacked by a bird constantly for some reason.  So...yeah...um....enjoy.

5.  I Spit On Your Grave 

Considered the worst movie ever made by Roger Ebert (yes, even worse than North, and we all remember his review of that, thanks to the Rob Reiner roast), the premise of this shlocksploitation slasher horror movie is that a woman is brutally raped by some good ol' boys, and then proceeds to murder them in grisly fashion.  While it sounds like a possible female empowerment b-movie horror film, Ebert noted that there was just as much audience cheering during the overly drawn-out and belabored rape scene as there was during the revenge killings.  Not much about this movie to recommend for human viewing.  Animals and robots probably shouldn't view it, either, just to be safe.

6.  North 

Funny I should mention North in the previous movie; it had to appear somewhere in this list.   The truly shocking thing is that this movie came from an otherwise entertaining director, Rob Reiner, who also brought us gems like The Princess Bride, When Harry Met Sally, This Is Spinal Tap!, and A Few Good Men.  Yet here, Reiner tries, and fails, to make a movie that is aimed at children.  Why does it fail in this regard? Well, it is insufferably kiddy, but it's also over two hours long, which means that any kids in the theater would be kicking the seats in front of them and wailing due to boredom about an hour before it's over.   The 2+ hour plot basically entails a boy trying to find foster parents who are better than his real parents.  Except that unlike the vastly more sympathetic Matilda from Roald Dahl's novel, his original parents weren't really that bad. 

7.  The Conqueror     

John Wayne with a glue-on Manchu goatee, trying to act Mongolian?  He comes off looking like a Klingon cosplayer.  His usual dry, flat Texan tone remains completely unchanged for his role as an Oriental barbarian.   This film was tragically responsible for John Wayne's death, as he and several other cast members came down with cancer because the film was shot downwind of a nuclear testing facility.  I think I can relate to that pain, now that I've seen this movie.

8.  Howard the Duck

Discovering that this.......thing...........was a Marvel Comics creation, has greatly shattered my geeky worldview that Marvel is somehow infallible.  After seeing this movie, I'm not even sure that they stand for good or humanity, but rather, are trying to infiltrate entertainment and poison it, kind of like introducing anthrax into the water supply.

9.  Catwoman

Jay Pinkerton said it best when he laughingly described her (Halle Berry's) libido-killing outfit as "a crimefighting were-badger".   When did Catwoman go from the "Raowwrr!!!" sexy of Eartha Kitt and Michelle Pfeiffer, to the "no thanks, I may have to rethink my orientation now" of Halle Berry?

10.  Hudson Hawk

I saw this film when I was quite young, and it took me a long time after viewing it, to be able to accept the possibility that Bruce Willis could be cool, funny, or good.  It's just that bad.  It tries to be deliberately funny, and it fails miserably.   It has more bathroom humor and sight gags than a Rob Schneider movie; one such "gag" involves a chihuahua being kicked out of the window of a high-rise where it plummets to its death.  Enjoy.   Possibly the worst movie that ever had anything to do with Leonardo da Vinci, even counting Quest of the Delta Knights.

True, but it's generally thought that he was born in Central Asia and migrated to the Balkans. Gerard Butler is A) probably just as Scottish as he is in 300 and B) looks like someone you'd see walking along the beach in California.

Of course, there are times when a movie is utter shit, and thus must be riffed with malicious anger, hatred and mean-spirited
scorn.  Any of the Coleman Francis films qualify.

But what would Mike and/or whoever would be doing the Rifftrax do to the film?

I mean, I love the movies Phantom of the Paradise and The Relic.  They have their flaws but I still enjoy them very much.  But I don't want someone going for their throats, so to speak.   So I don't really want to suggest them.

I completely agree.  Although Coleman Francis seems so much better... or so much less evil, at least, since I saw Battlefield Earth.  (I've only managed to get through 1 hour of BE, actually.  It's so... so so so very... bad :-, I guess.)

Uwe Boll is kind of like a doddering old grandfather who tries to be savvy on youth pop culture. 

"Oh....Bloodrayne....with the vampires and the breasts..... that must be the hip new game that all those
young folks want to play at the video arcade! I hear it's really happenin'."

Although in retrospect, perhaps Coleman should have made that offer to let his critics fight him in a boxing match.
He was a big guy; he'd probably do well.   But after seeing Red Zone Cuba, I'm a little worried he might forget
himself and strangle one or two critics.

1.  Commando - cheesy even by Ah-nold standards.  Bennett alone would provide enough riffing material to warrant a Rifftrax
2.  Friday the 13th series - I know there were rumors that they wouldn't do F13 due to violence/content issues, but seeing as they've done 300 and Predator (both of which were MUCH gorier than any of the F13 films were), I'd say they could at least consider F13.  I'd go with Part 3 first myself, but just about any of the films would be great Rifftrax.
3.  Tango & Cash.  Just about every buddy cop movie cliche wrapped into one film.  It makes Mitchell look Oscar-worthy.
4.  Since No Holds Barred is (I believe) not released on DVD, then how about *any* Hulk Hogan movie?
5.  Blair Witch 2:  Book of Shadows. 
6.  Running Man:  Not a terrible movie, but the sheer 80's chees, bad one liners, and overall Arnoldifficness of it makes it worthy.
7.  Jaws 4 - the shark comes back FOR REVENGE.  Enough said.
8.  Hercules in New York - not only does it have Ah-nold in his first big role, but he FIGHTS A FRIGGING BEAR (well, a guy in a very poorly concealed bear suit, but you get the point).
9.  Predator 2:  All of the cheesy pointless violence of the first film, minus Arnold, but plus Danny Glover and Gary Busey.
10.  Caddyshack 2 - I know it's really, really tough to riff on a comedy, but if anything's bad enough to get a good Rifftrax out of, Caddyshack 2 is it.

My last list was mostly really old and obscure movies.   I'll try to come up with a new list that has more recent or accessible movies.

1)  Barbed Wire   (it stars Pamela Anderson, that should be enough)

2) Baywatch : the Movie (see above)

3) Total Recall (multi-boobed aliens and guys exploding from decompression....plenty to work with here)

4) Dusk til Dawn (easily the worst vampire movie I have ever seen; if only because it was 2 and a half hours of Tarentino playing the role of a retard, and about 7 minutes of Mexican vampire whores at the end)

5) Stephen King's IT (a bit long to riff, but it's impossible to take Tim Curry seriously as a child-eating alien disguised as a clown.

6) E.T.  (go with the new THX remastered guns-are-now-walkie-talkies version and you've got at least ONE guaranteed easy riff)

7) Silence of the Lambs (great movie, but I think there's a lot of riffing potential for a cannibal and a transvestite antagonist)

8) Braveheart (also a pretty good movie, but after 300, there comes a point where all these bare-chested angry yelling Scots fighting for freedom movies just become one big blur)

9) From Hell  (oh noes! Jack the Ripper is back and....SPOILER ALERT....he's a FREEMASON!)

10) The Ninth Gate (Johnny Depp is a book collector who wants to find directions to Hell....what part of this sounded like a good idea?)

Let's start with some of the films made for the kiddies:

1. Digimon: The Movie
Boy, was this "English dub" horrible as hell. Lots of bad cheese-covered jokes that would make a Tim Hill movie look good. And........... Smashmouth's "All-Star" at the end of the movie?! BARF!

2. Underdog (live-action Disney version)
Watched this in theaters last week. Underdog, or "Shoeshine", is voiced by Earl and Simon Bar Sinister is played by a midget.

3. Inspector Gadget (live-action Disney version)
Before "Disney's Underdog", there was "Disney's Inspector Gadget". A lot of things that didn't tie in with the original cartoon series, like the fact that Dr. Claw was fully visible, and doesn't run an organization called M.A.D.

4. Pokemon: The First Movie
You know, I actually enjoyed this film back when it first released on VHS like hundreds of years ago, and during the time I really wanted this film to be riffed by the MST3K trio. I think the movie is a good choice, considering that these film crew idiots played this song (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RJZnPQhpIl0) during the movie's climax. Sigh.....

5. Baby Geniuses
As shown in Rotten Tomatoes "Worst of the Worst"

6. Super Babies: Baby Geniuses 2
Also as shown in Rotten Tomatoes "Worst of the Worst"

7. Home on the Range
What was said to be Disney's "last 2D film" turned out to be like one toy farm playset with Rosanne Barr and several pop-culture references thrown in. And what's the big deal with that "Showcow" quote anyways?

8. Any of the Spy Kids films

9. Adventures of Shark Boy and Lava Girl

10. Garfield 2: A Tail of Two Kitties

Post by: GalvaTRION on August 11, 2007, 01:36:09 AM
In order to make the truley perfect top ten list, one must take into consideration several factors. First, is the movie widely spread enough on DVD that one could easily acquire a copy? Concordently, since there are some insane people who actually buy the horrible movies just for the riff track (not that I've ever met someone like that, nope, never...), is it a cheap buy and/or constantly repeated on HBO? Also, is it a comedy- sure, there have been bad comedies, but mocking a comedy is going off the rails and crashing into pointlessville. Finally, does it have the riffing comming to it? Some things are so innept and horrible, that they are in truth reaching out, intentionally begging the high father to smite them gloriously. In keeping with my Rush Limbaughesque humility, I present my perfect, unquestionably infallible list of purity and excellence:

10. Batman and Robin (how this hasn't been riffed yet, I have no idea- it is widely considered the very definition of anguish)
9. Cobra (I can think of no other movie that perfectly exemplifies a bad action movie- big star, pointless script, horrifying one-liners, and Brigette Neilson)
8. Die Hard 2: Die Harder (Sit rep, we need a sit rep!)
7. Underworld (CGI so mind-blowing, that you'll swear someone accidentally recorded part of an episode of Beast Wars over the fight scenes)
6. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: Secret of the Ooze (looking back on this film I held dear as a child, I now have no idea why my parents never shoved me into a bag and dumped me into a river)
5. Judge Dredd (LAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAWWWWW!!!!)
4. Godzilla (1998) (an American movie that fails to be as fun as even the worst of the Japanese Godzilla movies- truely something special)
3. Catwoman (worse than Batman and Robin. No joke, I'd watch Batman and Robin before sitting down to Catwoman. On the other hand, I'd sooner punch a nun stupid than watch Batman and Robin intentionally)
2. Mortal Kombat: Annihilation (a video game movie that managed to be worse than having your genitals tied in knots- well, moreso than other video game movies, anyhow)
1. Any of the Blade movies (preferably not Trinity- yeah, it's a horrible movie, but I have pitty on Mike n' the guys. I got heart.)

Once, again, my riffing prayers have been answered, meaning I have to update my Top Ten list, again.  The release of "Independence Day" takes away the old #6, but I have a pretty decent idea for the new one.  Herewith, a condensed version of my list (starting with two films that need riffing despite being good):

#12:  The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers
#11:  Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (yes, I did write a riff script for this; yes, I plan to get it recorded kinda soon; yes, I still want the guys to do their own version.)
#10:  Eragon Waterworld
#9:  Catwoman
#8:  Days of Thunder
#7:  Armageddon
#6: Independence Day Next
Nicolas Cage provided some of the ripest riffing material ever with The Wicker Man, and this promises still more.  Hollywood ruins yet another Philip K. Dick story, turning it into a dopey action movie with a concluding plot twist so brain-bashingly painful it would make M. Night Shyamalan weep. (Fill in your own joke here.)  You don't need to see two minutes into the future to know how funny this could be.
#5:  Godzilla [1998]
#4:  The da Vinci Code
#3:  Jaws: The Revenge
#2:  Batman and Robin
#1:  Barb Wire (for revenge, and because unlike certain people, Mike Nelson doesn't need surgery to maintain his talent.)

10) Pick your Lundgren
The Legendary Reb Brown's predecessor.  Odd how his movies haven't been covered yet.  I would name one but...I can't think of any of his movies actually having names.  How about that one where he plays the big foreign guy, who shoots at people and blows stuff up?

9) Pick your Van Damme
I'm surprised, with all of the Van Damme cheesefests available on glorious digital DVD these days.  Not one Sudden Death, or Timecop, or that one where he fights in a tournament...Haven't been Riffed yet.  It seems to me a crime.  Much like the aforementioned Lundgren.  It's just not a  tribute to crap cinema without a big dumb foreign guy who hits people's groins.

8) Transformers
Michael Bay must be stopped.

7) Lost in Space
UUUUUHHHHHGGGGGGGG!!!!!

6) Anaconda
J.Lo, Ice Cube, a 40-foot-long-corpse-puking-reptile...And Jon Voight.

5)X-Men 3: The Last Bland
This movie was so embarrassing that the director apologized afterwords.  Enough said.

4) Garbage Pail Kids: The Movie
A movie based off a series of trading cards.  I SMELL OSCAR!  Ironically, I believe that the cast and crew of this movie have all gone on to working in sticker manufacturing plants.

3) Thomas & The Magic Railroad
I am positive this movie is a metaphor for drugs.  Check it out.  The point of the movie is for the conductors find a secret stash of "gold dust" in order to get back to "Shining Time" where everything is happy.  The way the characters freak out when they lose their "gold dust" is quite disturbing by it self.  "I've lost my gold dust.  WHAT ARE WE GONNA DO?"  It's also really, really bad, too.  That should make it a candidate.

2) Santa With Muscles
A wonderful tale for the holidays.  A movie about a big dumb MILLIONAIRE, who begins he's an overweight home intruding elf, guy.  He also fights ninjas at one point.  I think.  I'm surprised I haven't seen any Hulk Hogan suggestions on this board before.  Then again, most board members aren't sadists.

1) Gary Oldman is Francis Ford Coppola's Bram Stoker's Dracula...Starring Keanu Reeves
Seriously.  I need Rifftrax' help.  I've been trying to sit through this movie for 15 years.  I love Tom Waits more than most Waits fans. Yet still, neither the Beatnik from Hell, nor Sadie Frost's ample breasts have been able to keep my interest in this movie for more than 30 minutes.  It is hilarious to see Keanu get his penis bitten by vampires', though.

I actually have many others.  But I'm not that mean.

Wasn't Paris Hilton in a remake of an old b-movie that was already crappy to begin with, even when it didn't have her in it?

That should be like riffing fish in a barrel.   

....ah, House of Wax, that's the one.

ugghhh...  Paris hilton has to be one of the worst actors ever, the director of House of Wax would have been better off with a chimp dressed up like a woman other than her being in the movie, plus the chimp would be alot brighter, smarter and a better actor.

Paris need to stay away from films and also music albums all together

My all fantasy list:

10. Willow - laughable performances, a dull plot, Val Kilmer. What more can you ask for?

9. Highlander II: The Quickening - more like “the borening”. A terrible film with a muddle-headed, jumpy plot, the cinematic equivalent of a tossed salad.

8. Legend - filmed through more gauze than has ever been wrapped around wounds, Legend makes you wonder if your cataracts are acting up, or is that Tom Cruise looking rather fruity?

7. The Sword and the Sorcerer - release quickly before Conan the Barbarian slashed onto screens, this gross tale of undead wizards and hearts being magically yank from chests is just plain silly.

6. The Lord of the Rings (1978) – so how do you take a 1,000 page epic and boil it down to a 2 hour 12 minute animated feature? You don’t, unless you’re Ralph Bakshi. So dizzyingly paced that you’ll soon confuse Gandalf for Mickey Mouse in Fantasia.

5. Congo – not quite a full fledged fantasy film, but it does have as a lead character a gorilla fluent in sign language, which would be acceptable except they decided to link the gorilla to a machine that translates its every gesticulation into a voice that makes you want to stab pretzel sticks in your ears. Bungled in the jungle!

4. Jurassic Park III – gads, it wasn’t bad enough to sic the banality of Jurassic Park II on people, they had to go and make a third “film” that relies heavily on a paragliding incident for plot. Take my advice, kid, and paraglide out of the film, pronto!

3. Deep Blue Sea – just when thought it was safe to go to the movies again, they went ahead and made another movie about sharks. The only good thing about this intelligent shark movie is Samuel Jackson was intelligent enough to ask to be eaten early on. I bet he tasted like a royal with cheese.

2. Dungeons & Dragons – when I heard they were making a D&D movie with a Wayans brother, I almost threw up on my bag of 20 sided dice. The most depressing thing of all is watching Tom Baker (of Dr. Who fame) lose his last shred of dignity.

And my number one fantasy disaster is:

1. Conan the Destroyer – I was following the making of the first Conan film back before there was even a précis for the film. When it came out in 1981, I was a happy barbarian wannabe. In its beefy Governor Ahhhnald sort of way, the first film has its appeal; lots of violence and nudity, what’s not to love? Now, when I heard they were making a follow up, I was again all goose pimply. Who would Conan battle next? Another giant snake? Another evil wizard with a cult following? No, that was not Crom’s will. Alas, Conan’s chief adversaries in CTD are the chaotically frivolous scripting, the production values, and most of all, the cast. Grace Jones, Wilt “the misogynists” Chamberlain, and some wimpy little geek with a pair of kitchen knifes star opposite the man who felled James Earl Jones in the flesh, not merely as the voice of Darth Vader.  From rubber rocks to Jones’s wild-eyed screen-chewing stares to Chamberlain’s total lack of apparent acting skills to recycled fight scene villains from the first film to watering down the violence and nudity to garner a PG-13 rating, CTD’s name is prophetic, for it certainly destroyed any possibility of third film. Crom!

Nice list, but I think Jurassic Park is Sci-Fi, and I would say Deep Blue Sea is Horror (did it actually scare anyone?).  And as you stated yourself,
Congo is Sci-Fi.   One ridiculous premise doesn't immediately make a movie fantasy.

Oops, sorry. You know how it is with the name "Vermithrax." It's either Vermatraxa or Vermithraxuel, and I never guess it right.

But that's the thing about Transformers- Despite the fact that it WAS a bad movie, and it DID have some cringe parts, I still liked it.

I used to be Lady Decepticon, but I'm kind of in a Dragonslayer mood and that's the name given to the female dragon in that movie. Yes, I can kind of act as ornery as she is as well.  ;)

As far as Bayformers, I was hoping for something just a little bit more, like an actually good movie being a G1 Transformers fan from way back. I mean just because something's based on a toy, video game, book, etc. etc. doesn't give anyone the right to muck it all up for the dedicated fans. This movie was truly a very painful, depressing experience for me. Only Mike and friends can hurt it the way it hurt me.

Note to self: Put Vermithrax Pejorative on my list of favorite posters.

Ah, finally.  Someone who feels the same way I do about that damn "movie."

My hatred for that movie runs very very deep. They basically wasted Peter Cullen's talent. I don't know about you, but when I see a movie with the name Transformers on it, I damn well am expecting to see Transformers.

Yeah, the "Dragon Queen" under her avatar probably threw you off.

That's right. I'm a male dragon who dresses in drag.  :P

Oh and I'd like to add one more movie:

10.5. Oliver Stone's Alexander, the Director's Cut.

I swear to you there is a scene towards the end where Colin Farrel starts to resemble a late 80's Ozzie Osbourne.

But since the film turned out to be more of a cult film, I figured it was asking for a lot of grief at school.   Did have this poster on my wall.

I'm just amazed at how impressive the Dragon looks in that movie for it being created using practical FX. Just goes to show when you have true craftsmen working on something you don't need to use alot of CGI. Just look at the FX in John Carpenter's The Thing as well. Pretty impressive for the time period.

Getting "The Chin" as a guest riffer - that would be awesome!  Question is, would he do a movie he was in?  Or for that matter one that Sam Rami directed?  They're pretty tight.

Are we talking the Liam Neeson one?  Or one of the sequels?  The one with the guy who played Imhotep in The Mummy was pretty strange.

Although didn't I read on here somewhere that someone wants to do Congo?

10 Films, in no particular order

Robin Hood - Prince of Thieves
Musketeer
Disney's Three Musketeers (Yes, i'd like to see either version, though the version with Tim Roth would probably be more potent for riffing)
Wing Commander
The Sum of All Fears
Identity
Deep Impact
Stargate
Episode III (C'mon, let's get it out of the way)
Under Siege

Finally, I am reserving the right to hold back on Dungeons & Dragons and Tron, as I'm working on Fan Riffs of both and really hope I beat Rifftrax to the punch. :D

I don't even think the Mandrill from the movie (And there is such a thing as a Mandrill albeit of the primate persuasion strictly.) qualifies as a creature that could evolve from anything period. It's a mash up of a giant iguana and a Baboon. I'd buy large, mutated Platypuses more.

Trust me, it's much worse than you think it is. It has none of the gravitas Bradbury's Short Story had at all. It's like a combination of that atrocious, more recent, non-George Pal Time Machine Movie (Another film I heartily recommend for a Riffing.) with a heaping spoonful of Jurassic Park as well. And would you believe that the future evolution of mankind includes us transforming into creatures that sort of resemble the Zoras from Ocarina of Time? At least they did manage to include that blasted butterfly in all of it I guess. ::)

True "The Chin" was in the first one (which I was referring to) but only for all of about 3 seconds.  Which could lead to an amusing riff line "Who's that clown?" or something to that effect only funnier (I'm drawing a blank).  And while he is tight with Raimi, I'm betting the whole Rifftrax thing would be up their alley.  After all, Rifftrax don't necessarily need to be only aimed at awful movies, just movies that have a decent amount of riffability.  And lots of Raimi's older movies have that sort of "cheesy, but well done" feel to them.

Good picks, definitely Xanadu - lots of Mike-on-skates-photoshop opportunities.

My boyfriend and I just watched Glen or Glenda at a party recently, and it was the second time we'd seen it in two days, and believe me, without alcohol, it's a grueling movie to get through.  It's got probably a billion joke opportunities, but man - that is a loooong-ass movie with the incessant voice overs and stock footage.

I absolutely love the scene where he 'changes' in that dream sequence from man to woman - all under the watch of that bizarre devil face.

1) Double Dragon (100% Pure Riffing Gold!)
2) Gingerdead Man (It's like an old episode of Nickelodeon's "Are You Afraid of the Dark," only with cussing and blood. :^) Also, Gary Busey)
3) House of the Dead (I don't care how you're supposed to say his name. He's Eewie, and he'll always be eewie. :^))
4) Transformers: The Movie (The animated one. Or the new one. I don't care. Just give me something to connect Rifftrax to all my obsessions in life. :^))
5) Indiana Jones and __________: (It's one of the only HUGE franchises left that hasn't been touched yet.)
6) The Hulk (It was a good movie, but, by golly, it was a riffable one. :^))
7) Street Fighter (It BEGS for it!)
8 ) Robot Jox (Robots battle for US control of Alaska!)
9) Batman and Robin (Need I say more?)
10) Super Mario Brothers (What if the mushroom kingdom was actually a big city, where fungus grows on everything, lizards evolved into men, Yoshi's just a regular dinosaur, Toad's a hippy, and Bullet Bills is a night club? )

This revisiting/revising our lists is a fine idea:

So, before I give my list, I wanted to talk about the underpinnings of my various choices.
For me, the space in these films where comedy fits are the yawning chasm between a film's desire (in some cases, even demand) to be taken seriously, and its ability to be taken seriously.
Sometimes, a film desire for seriousness is compromised by dated ideas or trappings, sometimes by sheer ineptitude. Most of my selections possess some variation on this idea. I just thought I'd lay it out up front, instead of having to explain thoroughly in each selection.


These are in no particular order:

Batman (1989) or Batman Returns -- I know there's a huge push to Riff Batman and Robin, but while there are a LOT of things about that TERRIBLE film to make fun of, the fact is that B & R is basically a comedy. Tim Burton's first two Batman movies, on the other hand, are, despite Burton's trademark "ghouls' funhouse" atmosphere, clearly meant to be taken seriously. This, combined with how the films have aged (despite my love for these first two Batman films, the passing years have given me ability to see the flaws with something of an objective eye), plus Burton's complete inability to laugh at himself, makes either of these movies ripe for the Riffing.

Invasion of the Bee Girls http://www.amazon.com/Invasion-Star-Creatures-Bee-Girls/dp/B0007R4T1M/ref=imdbpov_dvd_0/002-6559928-3633658 (http://www.amazon.com/Invasion-Star-Creatures-Bee-Girls/dp/B0007R4T1M/ref=imdbpov_dvd_0/002-6559928-3633658) -- How this beautiful dish of cinema con queso somehow failed to be given the business on MST3K is utterly beyond me (maybe its semi-adult content was a factor); With its ridiculous plot, gratuitous nudity and one of the most stupid fight scenes in film history, it's time to correct this oversight. (p.s. The verb "ball" is very possibly the LEAST enticing word used to describe the act of sex in the history of humanity.)

Billy Jack -- SUPER-serious, and impossibly funny. From incomprehensible improv street theatre, to a supposedly naked woman's visible top (thanks to the film's "open-matte" transfer; it's never been issued in widescreen), to its vague "back to nature" philosophical musings, Billy Jack is a comedy treasure.

Soylent Green/The Omega Man/Planet of the Apes -- ANY post-apocalyptic film starring Mister Charlton Heston will fill the bill.

Zardoz -- Zardoz wants to be one of those "thoughtful" 70's post-apocalyptic "cautionary tales;" and, goddammit, it wants it like nobody's business, in spite of the complete lack of any concrete idea just what it is it's warning us about.

Godzilla Vs. Hedorah (a.k.a., Godzilla Vs. The Smog Monster) -- Thanks to MST3K, we've had all the Gamera we can possibly keep down. It's time to go back to the granddaddy of all rubber-suit monsters, which hasn't been done since MST3K's second season. This film's environmental "message" makes it a perfect candidate. Everybody sing: Save The Earth!

Braveheart -- I never understood the gay community being so up in arms about alleged anti-gay statements attributed to Mel Gibson. Watching this film, it's readily apparent that Gibson is deeply and hopelessly in love with a man; that man's name? Mel Gibson.

Carrie -- Still a great, terrifying film... and Riffable as HELL.

Akira -- If only to hear Mike, Kevin and Bill's multiple interpretations as to what the HELL the ending of this movie actually means.

Highlander 2: The Quickening -- I still don't understand how it's possible for a director to so completely misunderstand what it was that made his original film so beloved. And I certainly don't understand how he could so completely whiz the first film's charm and magic down his leg

I don't remember that but it is the one where the character played by McLaughlin's wife gets raped.  Some how I don't see them wanting to deal with a scene like that (a la Sidehackers).

Ok, I'll take a stab at this...in reverse order (10 being the least desired, 1 being the movie that MUST be riffed):

10) Supergirl (the only "Super" movie worse than Superman 4!)
9) Gigli (J-Lo and Ben...what's not to hate?)
8) Rollerball (2002) (did John McTiernan seriously direct this?)
7) Underworld (an action film with ADD....an action film with ADD....)
6) 16 Blocks (the only Bruce Willis action film to actually lull me to sleep)
5) The Da Vinci Code (pretentious, self-important, best-selling crap at its pretentious, self-important, best-selling crappiest)
4) Showgirls (I know, that one's almost too easy....well, maybe not...they *did* riff Battlefield Earth....)
3) Star Wars, Episode III (because I know it's coming)
2) Van Helsing (need I say more?)
1) Doom (Dooooom.....Doooooooooom....sorry, I just like saying it)

Title: Re: List the top 10 films you'd want riffed
Post by: Manos1977 on September 09, 2007, 01:10:40 AM
Alright I'm gonna whip one out here but I may need to come back and modify this if I come up with some better options.

The more well-known list

10.  Speed -- Keanu wanders around, Hopper is insane, stuff blows up.  What's not to like?

9. Starship Troopers -- You can count on two things when Paul Verhoven makes a movie: It will be mediocre at best, and there will be at least one scene and possibly as many as 342 of pointless female nudity. Riffs by the truckload.

8. The Fast and the Furious -- Were they really serious when they made this?

7. Time Cop -- Two things guaranteed to make for good riffing opportunities: Van-Damme and inevitable time-travel inconsistencies

6. Total Recall -- We need more Ah-nuld.  It doesn't get much cheesier than this even from the guvernator.

5. Commando -- If you do need some Scwartzy that's even more ridiculous than Recall and also without the excuse of being Sci-Fi to cover some of the ridiculousness this is what you gotta go with.

4. Street Fighter: The Movie -- Now really almost any video game movie is prime riffing material but a video game movie that also includes Van-Damme?  Riffing mana from heaven.

3. Universal Soldier -- Van-Damme and Dolph Lundgren in the same movie?  What more could a riffer ask for?

2. Mortal Kombat: Annihilation -- The video game movie that the other video game movies were embarassed got made.  Uwe Boll watched it and said, "Is that really the best you could do with that?"

1. Anaconda -- The absolute modern classic when it comes to lame-o creature movies.  Jon Voight loses his mind, waterfalls flow up, and we get to see from the inside what it looks like when a snake eats a person.  If you only do one more Riff and then retire, it MUST be this one.

The (more) obscure list

10. Hard Boiled -- This John Woo bullet-fest makes the list in honor of the recent release of it's spiritual sequel the video game Stranglehold.  Marvel as Chow Yun Fat wipes out an entire warehouse full of heavily armed thugs single handed.  Seriously.  He really does.  No joke or exageration in the slightest.

9. They LIve -- Great sci-fi with a message trash with possibly the longest fisticuffs scene in history.  Best one liner: Roddy Piper wanders into a bank carying a shotgun and says "I am here to kick ass and chew bubble gum.  But I'm all out of gum."  Then proceeds to blast away.

8. Logan's Run -- The crappy sci-fi fest continues with this disaster-piece of cinema history.  The most convinving miniature work since Ed Wood.  This film holds a special place in my heart for two reasons: My first name happens to actually BE Logan, and the first time I watched this was the first time I ever saw a boob.  The fact that I can remember that fact quite distinctly now makes me quite sad inside.

7. A*P*E -- A fantastically awful Korean rip-off of King Kong featuring miniature work almost as convincing as that seen in Logan's Run.  What makes it even worse is that it was in fact a rip-off of the also stupefyingly awful 1976 remkae instead of the 1933 classic. 

6. Blind Fury -- Rutget Hauer plays a soldier who is blinded in Vietnam but doesn't let that stop him from becoming the most ridiculous bad-ass swordsman of all time wielding a nice piece of work about on par with Uma Thurman's blade from Kill Bill.  Which allows him to go all Kill Bill kill-crazy on a load of henchmen working for the ubiquitous 80s drug king pen.

5. Lone Wolf McQuade -- Chuck Norris in a role almost impossible to imagine him in: a martial arts expert Texas Ranger!  The riff possibilities are endless as he battles evil yuppie gun-runner David Carradine!

4. Hawk the Slayer -- Imagine Lord of the Rings crossed with Superman II.  Now imagine that the movie was produced on a budget of $37.50 and stars Jack Palance as the villain.  That should give you a pretty good idea what to expect from Hawk.

3. Zardoz -- Many post-apocalyptic dystopian sci-fi films tend to have a message attempting to warn us about some aspect of out society that we should be careful to not let get out of control lest it destroy us all.  Zardoz is no exeption, and after watching it what it appears we need to be careful to keep in check is the dangerous number of Sean Connerys running around in diapers and go-go boots.  Or possibly flying Easter Island statues that vomit guns and then explain how they are better than penises, I'm not sure.  Could be both I suppose.

2. Death Race 2000 -- Sylvester Stallone is psychotic egomanical homicidal lunatic.  This comes in handy for his role in Death Race where he happens to portray a psychotic egomanical homicidal lunatic.  Too bad he's still no match for his arch-rival David Carradine in the new national sport: a cross-country race where the drivers earn bonus points for every innocent civilian they run down along the way.

1. Mac & Me -- E.T. phone... lawyer.  Seriously who are they kidding?  A Fistful of Dollars was less like Yojimbo and Kurisawa actually won a copyright lawsuit over that one.  Superbowl commercials have less product placement per second than this film, and if you ever thought there was no way a crippled 12-year-old in a wheelchair falling off a cliff could ever be funny this movie shows you just how wrong you were.  I have gotta see a Riff for this one guys ABSOLUTELY.

I have two lists– each list is for very different reasons.  The first list is of movies I’ve paid money to see in theaters.  They’ve hurt me – and I need to hurt them back.  In no particular order:

Anaconda – This movie is just such an obvious choice that any comments here would be superfluous.
Starship Troopers – One movie that I’ve found is part of a great divide – guys dig it, girls hate it.  I’ve never fought more about how much a movie sucked then when I fought over this one.
Bride of Chucky - Not scary enough to be horror, not funny enough to be comedy.  I'd live with any in the series, though.
Stay Alive – Maybe I was in a penitent mood and watching this movie and it was my self-imposed punishment.  The “cut this down to a PG-13” edits were so obvious I was surprised you couldn’t hear the sound of the scissors.
Ghost Rider – I hate to admit it, but I was looking forward to this and was severely disappointed.  The special effects were decent, but plot went nowhere and stay there.
Batman and Robin – What can I say that hasn’t already been said?
Constantine – I have to admit, I kind of liked this movie, but in an “I know this movie sucks” kind of way.
Armageddon – One of the two asteroid movies to come out in 1998, the completely impossible plot line is fortunately augmented with an annoying love story.
Ultraviolet – Since they didn’t have much of a plot to fall back on they filled in the gaps with CGI effects, impossible fight sequences, and various other shiny objects.
This last one is for my best friend:
Face/off – She HATES this movie, and she deserves her vengeance as well.

After my revenge on those, I would like these:
Superman 4 – Especially considering it’s based on a comic strip, it’s one of the most heavy-handed, preachy movies I’ve ever seen. 
Ferngully – Speaking of “beating your head in with the message.”
Masters of the Universe – The special effects sucked, even back then.
Sahara and National Treasure – for the same reason – they both have groups of people searching for mythical treasure by seemingly wandering around and then finding the next clue location through weak clues and lucky guesses.
Hard Rain – I didn’t see anyone else mention that movie, so if someone did, I’m sorry.  Dark (and I mean poorly lit) and incomprehensible, it’s extremely worthy.

Lost in Space
– it made the series seem well crafted and finely nuanced.  One of the few films that was so bad it made me cry.
Evil Dead – I love this movie, but good or bad – movies are just better with Rifftrax.
I think I’ll leave it at that.  I’ll need some space if more good or bad movies come to mind.

This is my first post so please, be kind.

If it was 1975, maybe.

Besides, the great crime of Stone's film is that he trades any genuine feeling of national tragedy associated with Kennedy's assassination for endorsement of wholesale crackpottery. If it could be made entertaining (always my first consideration) without the length bogging it down, I'm all in favor of a JFK Riff.

Well, I wouldn't task them with trying to Riff the Zapruder film, to be sure; but Stone's film so trivializes its subject matter, through immersion in pure nonsense, that I think it gives some distance from the real-world events. And, again, I would state that my view of a film's Riffability is that the Riffing fits in the space between how much a film desires (and sometimes demands) to be taken seriously, and its actual ability to be taken seriously. Since in the case of JFK, the demand to be taken seriously is near-infinite, while the film lacks even the merest shred of ability to be so, I'd say there's a lot of room for comedy.

There are some amazing suggestions on this board (Ravenous, Jaws 3D). 

And there are some rather idiotic ones...I mean Snakes on A Plane?  Um, news flash, this movie already pretty much makes fun of itself, how would you even riff it and make it worthwhile and funny??  I have to assume most of the people suggesting this movie have not actually seen it.  No offense but if anyone took that movie seriously or believed the film maker thought it was more than it really was then said person is a moron.  Anaconda, on the other hand, should be riffed because they absolutely meant for it to be scary and serious. 

Mine would be, in no particular order:

Night of The Lepus (this should have been MSTified, not sure why it never was...it would be nice to see them riff a bad b-movie after all of this mainstream, big budget stuff)
Armageddon (ugh it just sucks)
Dirty Dancing (so ridiculous I don't even know where to start)
Independence Day
Anaconda (since I'm thinking about it)
Next (Nicholas Cage is always bad but this just begs for a riffing)
Speed 2 (lol)
Poseidon (embarrassingly bad movie)
Fair Game (Cindy Crawford, LOL)
The Bodyguard

I hope they never do Independence Day.  That's a movie special and dear to my heart.  It's a full movie experience.

Too late, already did it.

Yeah, we know, we were yanking Weedwacker's chain.

New here... but love the work they do.  Here's my list:

10. Masters of the Universe - Why wouldn't you want to do this one?
9. Click - A big fat Sandler turd.
8. Van Helsing - Horrible accents, killed three potential franchises with one blow.
7. Last American Virgin - An uber-depressing teen-sex-romp.
6. Jumanji - Robin Williams as part ape kid... well, a bit of type-casting.
5. Speed - Any Keanu movie is pretty much a gold mine.
4. Deep Blue Sea - Super. Intelligent. Sharks.
3. League of Extraordinary Gentlemen - Here's a way to ruin every book you ever liked.
2. Fear - Mark Wahlberg as Reese Witherspoon's crazy boyfriend
1. Maximum Overdrive - Emilio Estevez & Co trapped in gas station by machines that come to life.

Honorable mention: Hulk, Clue, Vanilla Sky, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat

Important tip for those of you suggesting a riff:

DO NOT list COMEDIES!!!!

I don't quite grasp why people do this. You really can't make a good riff on a comedy.
What makes the Riffs funnny is pointing out how something the filmmakers wanted
taken seriously is actually ridiculous or a lack in logic that is glossed ove for no good reason.
When this happens in a comedy it's usually intentional.  Yes the riffers can point out the occasional
lame joke in a movie and make fun of it but that doesn't mean you can make a good riff
on an entriely comedy movie.  For example I just saw someone had Clue listed.  Personally I like
Clue, but however you feel about it that doesn't change the fact that Clue is as much a spoof of whoduit
movies as it is a whodunit itself.  How do spoof a spoof?  That's like riffing a riff, it's kinda pointless.

I'll start my posting by jumping in the deep end (in no particular order):

Death Wish 3 Why, you ask? Then you haven't seen it. I have. Over 200 times. It's my personal Plan 9.
Rock&Roll Nightmare - I never understood why Zombie Nightmare got MSTied when this is Jon Mikl-Thor's Magnum Dopus.
Bond, Any Bond - Although the Timothy Dalton installments may be too deadly dull.
No Holds Barred - Riff-a-mania's runnin' wild!
Star Trek 3 - The search for Spaaaaaahck. Or any OG Trek really. I've got the box set. 5 & 6 were great.
Clifford - Not the big red dog. Martin Short and Charles Grodin go together like ipecac and vomit.
Rocky 4 - Rocky 3 would be a goldmine, too, but I've already got two Part 3s on the list.
KISS meets the Phantom of the Park - Those guys so have it coming.
Air Force One - Get off my plane!
The Mirror Has Two Faces - It's fine that Streisand made her ultimate vanity project, but why did she have to drag Jeff Bridges into it?
The Karate Kid - I don't know why these 80s fight movies beg for a riffing, but they do.

And I'll throw a +1 in for Anaconda. That should be a good time. Thanks for reading!

Hmm.  Top 10...there's going to be some repeats here but...

10.  The Sixth Sense-What a twist!
9.  Transformers the Movie (animated)-Is casting Orson Wells as a giant orb that devours planets typecasting?
8.  G.I. Joe the Movie-Cobra Commander morphing into a giant snake, the evil forces of Burgess Meredeth, and of course Sgt. Slaughter AS Sgt. Slaughter!
7.  Pirates of the Carribean-One or all of them, let the Keith Richards jokes fly.
6.  King Kong-The epic story of the love between a woman and a huge stinky ape that likes ice skating.
5.  Batman (Any one of them even if Batman and Robin is the obvious target)-"Just two guys in rubber, hanging out in a cave"  -Joel Schumaker.
4.  Constantine-Whoa!  This is like totally different than when I played Neo, dude.  Also, don't smoke.
3.  See No Evil-The most concentrated form of evil there is, Vince McMahon producing a movie. (insert screams)
2.  Freddy vs. Jason-Place your bets!
1.  Star Wars (Original Trilogy, "Special" dvd editions)-Now when you say special...

By the way, since I'm suggesting a couple animated choices a question occurred to me.  Seems like the cartoons are getting off very light.  The only completely animated offerings I can think of in Rifftrax or back in the MST3K days were Nestor and that one Gumby short.  Are there any I'm forgetting?

In no order:

League of Extraordinary Gentlemen: because any movie that makes Alan "Watchmen" Moore coat his beard with tears is no movie I respect.
Power Rangers: The Movie: because it makes you realize what horrible taste you had as a kid.
The Day After Tomorrow: because the guys from South Park didn't give it a bad enough beating.
Atlantis:The Lost Empire: because it's the day that Disney died in my eyes
The Rocky Horror Picture Show: because the people who dress up and yell lines at the movie at midnight are really, REALLY too kind to it.
Transformers (Michael Bay): because it takes a special level of hackery to make a movie where the scenes with giant robots kicking the crap out of each other are the *least* ridiculous moments in the movie.
Alone in the Dark: because Uwe Boll begs to be destroyed. Lowtax can come back!
Bloodrayne: because see above
High School Musical: because this has had way too much inexplicable popularity to not be riffed
Robocop: because, well, it's actually a pretty good movie. But let's face it, it's a B-movie premise.

Lots f movies come to mind, but here are my top 3...

1. Transformers (2007): The DVD should practically legally be required to have the Rifftrax as permanent audio setting.
                                            "Some movies are aking for it", this movie is on it's knees begging for it, stuffing dollar bills in it's G-string...

2. Hulk: Hulk dogs, Nick Nolte's "performance", pointless shots of nearby moss... this movie would be great!

3. RoboCop: This movie would be golden. (I now see that someone already suggested this one, thanks for stealing my thunder!)

It's hard to come up with 10....

1) Something non-comedic with Robin Williams.  What Dreams May Come springs to mind, because it was so god-awful pretensious.  But stay the Hell away from One Hour Photo!
2) The Running Man.  This movie is so hilarious on its own that it NEEDS to be riffed, kinda like Troll 2.
3) BloodRayne
4) Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers
5) Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers

Can't think up any more.

the fact that you have to ask is proof enough that even if it was a comedy, its good riff material, because it was not funny. They did riff on how that one guy was supposed to be the funny sooky clumsy guy. But a comedy that is actually recognized as a comedy would not work for a riff

Indeed, Catalina Caper was obviously trying to be the beach equivalent to Pink Panther, but it just came off flat and dull, except for Little Richard who came off completely baked.

Thank you, I've often thought of that one a few times  but couldn't recall the details, yeah that one looked pretty ripe for the riffing.

Hi, new here. I'm a long time MSTie.

Well, here's my list:

10. Inspector Gadget (What was once a nice cartoon turned into a kid's version of Robocop with Matthew Broderick.)

9. Rush Hour 2 (Screeching Chris Tucker.)

8. Godzilla USA (Once denied a clip of the movie to show on MST3K's blockbuster review, Mike Nelson, Kevin Murphy and Bill Corbett may finally give this turkey the riffing it deserves.)

7. Mr. Holland's Opus (So corny that you could make enough ethanol to last a hundred years.)

6. Highlander 2 (It would have to be the re-edited version, since that's the one that seems readily available on DVD.  The original version had the stupid plot all in an effort to "logically" bring back the delightful Sean Connery.)

5. Tango and Cash (Absolutely unashamed '80s cop action movie.)

4. The Substitute (I like the movie but I wouldn't mind a RiffTrax of it.)

3. Mommie Dearest (A scene of a mother strangling her teenage daughter should not induce laughter, this movie proves that wrong.)

2. Flash Gordon (High camp, bad acting, need I say more?)

1. Transformers (A robot urinating on people is not my idea of Transformers.  Bay deserves the skewering of RiffTrax.  Be sure to bring in Kevin and Bill on this one.)

Post by: Ben Murphy on October 05, 2007, 02:13:16 PM
I can only think of 5 off the top of my head but I'd love to see any of these.


(In no particular order)

1. R.O.T.O.R. - it's not out on DVD at the moment but it's on cable a good bit... w/ extended scenes no less!!  Just read the comments on IMDB! http://imdb.com/title/tt0098156/

2. Armstrong - cornball action flick w/ lots of inexplicably sweaty people & an unrivaled topless chase scene through Russia... nuff said.  I bought this DVD just to riff it myself w/ friends..

3. Commando - I'm assuming this is already in the pipeline

4. Fade To Black - the one w/ Heather Locklear & Richard Dreyfuss... er, I mean Timother Busfield, you know, the poor man's Richard Dreyfuss

5. American Psycho 2 - This movie is a crime against the original but is oh so beautifully bad..  Plus it's got W. Shattner as an aging college prof. who's having affair(s) w/ students..  Pure Rifftrax GOLD!!

Post by: Darth Geek on October 07, 2007, 03:52:19 PM
Has anybody suggested them doing a rifftrax for MST3K: The Movie?
I have heard Mike say in interviews that he would like to do a "meta" commentary for a special edition DVD, but the company that owns it treats it like a "cinematic suppository" (greatest bad movie description ever).
Perhaps he could do that through Rifftrax.

Post by: mrbasehart on October 07, 2007, 07:58:42 PM
I haven't done one of these in a while:

1. Commando - I love this movie, it's just so cheesy.

2. Red Dawn - Another cheesy movie, but perhaps even better fodder for Rifftrax than Commando because it takes itself very seriously.

3. Batman & Robin - There was a contest on the boards awhile ago, and this movie won hands down.  When movies like this one are still unriffed, why is Raiders of the Lost Ark?

4. Ghost - Swayze movies are perfect for riffing.

5. Dirty Dancing - See above.

6. The Wizard of Oz - A classic that's not only enjoyable, but ripe for riffing.

7. Star Wars: A New Hope - If the guys can do the new trilogy, and Raiders of the Lost Ark, then I think it's only a matter of time for the original set.

8. Stone Cold - Brian Bosworth action movie with an amazingly over the top ending.  Lance Henrickson promptly walks away with the picture, despite only mustering the energy to display two emotions.

9. Blade Runner - It's one my favourite films, but if they're gonna pick good movies, I can think of few better than Blade Runner to tackle.

10.  Psycho - I'd like to see if the guys could tackle a Hitchcock movie, and this seems the best one to do.

9. Blade Runner - It's one my favourite films, but if they're gonna pick good movies, I can think of few better than Blade Runner to tackle.

I really like this idea.  Blade Runner is a classic of sci-fi and all, but there's still plenty of material.  The only problem is that as far as dvds go, the directors cut is out there more than the theatrical version (in fact I'm not sure the theatrical version is on dvd at all) and the directors cut took out so much riffworthy stuff, like the incredibly lame voice overs that Harrison performed with all the heart and emotion of reading your phone bill and wasn't there a tacked on happy ending too?

There are a few different cuts of the movie, yeah.  BUT! There's a brand new, all-singing all-dancing box set out at the end of the year, with all the cuts included.  It's even out on HD and Blu-Ray!

Post by: OTC316 on October 09, 2007, 08:11:37 PM
here goes....

10.) Matrix Reloaded= for that lame-ass Merovingian character alone! The *&$#ing Jar Jar of the Matrix Trilogy.
9.) Hulk=Only Rifftrax can make the 30 minutes of footage that should have been cut from this film entertaining.
8.) House of Wax (2005)= I never saw this movie, because I hate Paris Hilton, But I would watch it with a Rifftrack, because I hate Paris Hilton.
7.) Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer= Blatant product placement, and the FX department somehow forgot to show us a character that they were talking up through the entire film! Honestly, the best we can do with CGI in this day and age for Galactus is a CLOUD?
6.)Spider-Man 3= I know this isn't on DVD yet, but this bastard has it coming. Was this film secretly directed by Joel Schumacher?
5.)Highlander 2: The Quickening=The sign of a true 80's sequel..completely disregard the premise of the original film, and pull a bunch of random crap from your ass.
4.) King Kong Lives=Set almost 10 years after the 70's version of Kong, a university has kept Kong on giant respirators (He's not QUITE dead...), so they can implant an artificial heart the size of a MINI Cooper. BONUS: It also stars the guy who played Birdie on "The Misadventures of Sheriff Lobo"!
3.) Death Race 2000 : Ladies & gentlemen, the very first film I downloaded into my IPOD! To be honest though, this movie pretty much riffs itself, but worth mention just the same. I mean, dude, the HAND grenade?
2.) The Mummy Returns=How do you make a can't miss sequel to a really great film? 3 steps. A.) add an annoying kid that the audience wants the Villains to kill, B.) redo the entire sandstorm-with-imhotep's-face-in-it-causes-a-plane-crash scene, except with a river and a ROCKET-BLIMP, and C.) Zombie Pygmies.

and my Number One film that I want to see Riffed?

FLASH! AH AHHHHH! SAVIOUR OF THE UNIVERSE!!


that's right the 80's version of Flash Gordon! BTW, am I the only one that thinks the new Flash Gordon series on Sci Fi absolutely sucks?

I know I'll think of more after I post this,

Later.

8.) House of Wax (2005)= I never saw this movie, because I hate Paris Hilton, But I would watch it with a Rifftrack, because I hate Paris Hilton.

Everyone I know that saw this movie did it for one reason.  Wanting to see Paris Hilton die on screen.  Can't say I blame them, but it wasn't enough to get me into the theater, because the first part of it would be, you know, watching Paris Hilton.  I'd much rather get rid of her in a quiet discreet way, so we don't have to see or hear about her ever again.

2.) The Mummy Returns=How do you make a can't miss sequel to a really great film? 3 steps. A.) add an annoying kid that the audience wants the Villains to kill, B.) redo the entire sandstorm-with-imhotep's-face-in-it-causes-a-plane-crash scene, except with a river and a ROCKET-BLIMP, and C.) Zombie Pygmies.

Don't forget D)  Put the whole marketing campaign around the Rock, despite the fact that he's in the movie for like five minutes at the beginning, and replaced by a lame video game boss at the end.

Every movie ever made.  Especially the pompous ones.  But my wife wants the Friday the 13th part 1 riff, and she in not into this lifestyle at all.  Myself I hear Mike and the boys in my head for most any movie I watch, and at social functions, where they tell me to attack all life forms before me with sporks and spray cheese.  I can't go to my children's school functions anymore and I am not allowed to heckle at funerals.  Actually if Mike could prepare a riff for my funeral I would be honored.  I am a rather unlikeable bastard and I think if anyone shows up besides to dance on my grave, they might get a kick outta it.

I was forced to listen to the radio all morning at work.  They had these two ladies from the big mortuary in town talking about how they have noticed a big problem with children of the diseased fighting over their parents' belongings.  They kept yammering on about how it's because we don't express our love of each other enough, and we project that love onto their belongings after they die.

My thought was:  When I die, I want them to re-enact the part in The Big Lebowski where they transfer Donny's ashes in a coffee can and unintentionally spread the ashes all over each other.  I kept seeing my whole family sitting outside on lawn chairs.  Somebody comes up and takes the coffee can of my ashes and intentionally pours them all over everybody.  The End.

Seems like a decent list.  The ones I haven't seen I at least have an inkling about.  I'd suggest Evil Dead 1 replacing Army of Darkness.  Either one of them could be riffed, but I think Evil Dead 1 would have better material, being the more serious of the two.

Masters of the Universe
Logan's Run
Omega Man (or any Chalton Heston movie, for that matter)

Donnie Darko (not because it needs riffing, but because it's an awesome movie)
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

5. Aliens 3 (or whatever it's called)

Come on, that's not nearly as confusing at the series of First Blood, Rambo: First Blood Part II, and Rambo III.

Any one of which could make an excellent trax by the way.

Before they do any other riffs, I want to see them finish up the franchises that they’ve started i.e. Matrix & LotR. 

But top 10 in no order:
Waterworld (I can dream…)
Harry Potter (Just a matter of time for one of ‘em)
Transformers (Just a matter of time)
Hulk (There is soooo much potential.  Probably just a matter of time before Punisher, Blade & Ghost Rider)
Dungeons & Dragons (it's doubtful though since Eragon totally ripped off this movie… for some reason)
League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (I love it, but it does suck something fierce)
Pirates of Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl
X-Men 3 (it sucks so bad it hurts)
Power Rangers: The Movie (It needs to happen)
Thirteen Ghosts (There is so much to riff!  Matthew effing Lillard for crying out loud!  Perfect for Halloween!)

Never at any point thought that Eragon ripped off Dungeons and Dragons for any reason other than casting Jeremy Irons in a terrible role, maybe I missed something because I'm blocking most of my memory of Dungeons and Dragons out.  Either way, I think this is still riffable.

Seriously though, did Eragon even have time to rip off another Dragon story with all the other things it was ripping off?  Okay, telepathic speech between the dragon and the rider that that dragon chooses or is "impressed" by before hatching, forgot.

"Dear Anne McCaffery,  you ain't gonna believe this shit but..."

My second top 10

10. Final Fantasy
And you thought the Super Mario Brothers movie had nothing to do with the game

9. You've Got Mail
It's Sleepless in Seattle 2, also does any body remember getting on to the internet that easly back in the 90's?

8. The Nightmare Before Christmas
Why is this movie so popular?

7.Donnie Darko
I think the masterbation hypnosis scene was improved

6. Weird Science
It's not a comedy if nobody's laughing, also who's bras did they have on their heads?

5. Edward Sissorhands
Pardon my crassness but how dose he wipe him self after going number two?

4.Chasing Amy
Not even lesbians can resist Ben Affleck <3
!Note!: Alyssa Jones's singing has been known to cause vomiting and seizers in all living things that have ears!!!

3.The Rocketeer
John Locke is Howard Hughes

2.Speed
It's like Speed 2 only on a bus

1. Titanic
Ok, we saw the nude scene, do we have to see the rest of the movie?

worth considering -Kyle XY pilot
Knew he was clone like thing in the first 5 pink goo nude  seconds

I'm a huge wrestling fan, and if I knew about rifftrax at the time I would have been calling for one of this movie the first time I saw the trailer.   ;D  Haven't seen the movie yet, but I remember saying "It looks like they just rolled almost every action movie cliche together into one film."

Then they showed Cena saying, "They have a hostage.  IT'S MY WIFE!"

"Well...that's all of them then."

Jason X, definitely, but Freddy vs. Jason?  True there's material, but that's like the third best Freddy movie out there (just under the original and new nightmare)  Don't you think the other sequels deserve it more?  Part III with the wheelchair D&D nerd becoming a wizard?  Part V putting baby Freddy back in the womb?  Freddy's Dead...lying to us?  A couple of my friends and I have been pondering just making fan riffs of the entire series start to finish now that I bough the box set.

I realized just today that I called someone out for choosing Freddy vs. Jason in their list, when it was in mine too.  So to clarify I'll say again that it would make a good riff, but since I posted that I picked up and re-watched the rest of the Nightmare on Elm Street series, and there's much better targets in there.  Also I realized that Genji seemed to be targeting Jason more than Freddy.  I'll have to take his word on what the best movie to riff is there, since I barely watched that series at all.  Always thought Freddy > Jason.

First of all, yes, Freddy is better than Jason. Also, Jason X is great because it makes fun of a character that doesn't make any sense, and a genre so steeped in idiotic cliches. (would make for excellent riffing, though)
As for Rifftrax, yeah the Nightmare on Elm Street movies would make great riffs (even the two that were good). But I have to say, the fact that Jason is mute, gives Mike completely free range for internal monologues and random thaughts . I would love to see them tackle the ol' hockey masked lug.

I can hear it now:

"Just for laughs, Jason and Michael Myers would sometimes switch masks for a day."

I hadn't thought of the mute aspect of it, but I think you're right.  Was that used well in Halloween?  That's one rifftrax I haven't picked up yet.

I did enjoy Jason X just for being so ridiculous.  My favorite scene had to be when he was trapped on the holodeck thing with the two holo-teen girls, and he ends up putting them both in sleeping bags and killing them by just hitting one with the other.  I had to stop the movie I was laughing so hard.

3.    March of the Penguins
Go find the original french version, I think you'll enjoy it

I'd do another Arnie Movie first, how about Kindergarten Cop?

Yeah, this one does need a riffing.  It's a kick-ass movie, but it definitely takes itself too seriously.  Seems like easy pickins, in fact, it should be fan riffed first.

Hey Tripe, although we sometimes disagree on matters of taste (for example, I love Quentin Tarantino), I respect your sense of discrimination in same. I thought the above were two of the best movies of 1999; maybe you should consider giving them a try.

I never got around to seeing Magnolia (I worked at a video store at the time and never heard a single good review from the customers) but I'll throw in behind gbeenie here that Being John Malkovich was an excellent movie.  Extremely odd, but a lot of fun.

3 .Across the Universe (2007)

How much of this was musical?  I know that was the main (and pretty much only) selling point of the movie, but is it like a Beatles opera, or was there spoken dialog too?  It'd be interesting to hear a riff on something this song-heavy, but would there be a point where it's just too much?

I ended up inadvertantly watching "Stomp The Yard" since I couldn't find the remote to the tv and I was too lazy to get up and change the channel.  (Too tired from playing Rock Band all day.)

About half way through I was laughing my butt off.  This movie needs to be riffed.  Badly.

Post by: MartyS (Gromit) on December 09, 2007, 10:20:19 PM
Here goes, my list:

SOLDIER (1998 with Kurt Russel): a watchable movie with loads of riffability.
PUSHING TIN : it was supposed to be a comedy, right?  Maybe Mike and friends can make it funny...
SPHERE : desperately needs the guys.
UNDER SIEGE : Tommy Lee Jones, Gary Busey, Steven Seagal, 16" guns,  nuff said....
SKYSCRAPER : maybe too easy, take DIE HARD, strap a pair of fake boobs on Bruce and give everyone in the cast a lobotomy and you've got this turkey.
BATMAN BEGINS : I liked it but it has plenty of goofy stuff to make fun of.
CONTACT : plenty of holes in the story.
HULK : big green CGI insanity
GHOST RIDER : Flaming skulls!
SUPERMAN RETURNS : super deadbeat dad...

Later,
 Marty

1. The Confessional (also known as House of Mortal Sin - just finished watching it and it is in desperate need of riffing)
2. The Reaping (something has to be said about that ending)
3. Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl
4. The Da Vinci Code (because Dan Brown needs to be taken down a peg or 357)
5. The Phantom of the Opera (the Andrew Lloyd Webber film version from 2003)
6. V For Vendetta
7. Stigmata
8. The Crying Game
9. Die Hard (how many different accents did Alan Rickman have in that movie?)

10. Van Helsing An absolutely horrific film in all the wrong ways.
9. Freddy vs. Jason. Ideal for a Halloween rifftrax.
8. Orlando. Why? Because I want to see Mike and Co. slam a snooty arthouse flick!
7. Hercules in New York. Rifftrax vs. Ahnuld! In a toga!
6. Shogun Assassin. A cheesy classic, and a rifftrax must.
5. The Omega Man. A hideously dated movie. Plenty of long silences for Mike and Co. to ridicule Charlton Heston.
4. Nightbreed. An incredibly weird cult horror flick from the early '90's. A movie like this needs a no-holds-barred all-out head-on bashing (a la SPACE MUTINY) if Mike and Co. really want to make it work.
3. Ernest Saves Christmas. A perfect holiday rifftrax. Maybe next year?
2. Matango: Fungus of Terror, aka Attack of the Mushroom People. Very trippy, very freaky Japanese movie from the '60's. Think JACK FROST on acid, as impossible as that sounds.
1. Patch Adams. What else?

Hey, why not invite Bruce on board for a SPIDER-MAN sequel rifftrax? Bruce has already made a career out of poking fun at his buddy Sam Raimi, and the potential mischief he'd get up to with Mike on SPIDER-MAN 2 or 3 boggles the mind.

I've agreed with that before (I think someone was suggesting the first Spider-man at the time though, obviously before they actually did it, if I weren't so lazy I'd look it up) it'd be great especially when he shows up in each movie himself.  "Well I see what you mean, Mike, but look at his handsome young actor!"

Post by: Zandrax on December 21, 2007, 08:19:50 AM
It seems to be an unwritten rule to keep things more or less in the PG-13 range, and if it's R it's usually for a body count and language, not necessarily sexual content.

Anyways, here are mine in no particular order, not including Batman & Robin since that's apparently on the to-do list.

1. Steel - Shaquille O'Neal movie about the guy who tried to fill Superman's shoes.... without any mention of Superman or Metropolis...
2. Godzilla - The American 1998 film. The King Of The Monsters is foiled by Beuller and Jean Reno.
3. Stargate - Not a bad film per se, but leaves itself open for plenty of gags.
4. Star Wars: Droids - DVD release of the 1985 cartoon edited into a feature length "movie"
5. Any "American Ninja" Movie - Heck, any movie about ninjas. There could be a list of ninja/martial arts movies alone
6. From Justin To Kelly - for obvious reasons
7. My Bloody Valentine - The epitome of the holiday themed slasher flick
8. Catwoman - A movie about Catwoman, only she's not Selina Kyle, and the movie makes no mention of Batman or Gotham City...
9. Ballistic - Never seen or heard of this movie, but it got a 0% rating on Rotten Tomatoes...
10. Batman Forever - Since it's almost as bad as Batman & Robin...

Honorable Mention goes to Hawk The Slayer

I don't think anyone has ever watched Gigli all the way thru and survived.

Scientific studies have concluded that most people who appear to have watched it all the way thru actually lapsed into occasional, momentaly mini-comas, the result of their brains acting in automatic self defense.

I'm not sure you can riff a movie that's so bad you can't remain conscious all the way thru it. Maybe Mike and the team could work in relays...?

Jessica Simpson's new movie, it grossed $384 in it's first day.  That's dollars, not thousands or millions... http://www.slashfilm.com/2007/12/22/jessica-simpson%e2%80%99s-new-movie-grossed-384-on-friday/ (http://www.slashfilm.com/2007/12/22/jessica-simpson%e2%80%99s-new-movie-grossed-384-on-friday/)

riff 10, eh? this should be simple enough...

Don't pick on Rodger Corman, he makes some great movies.

The annual James Bond Christmas marathon on tv made me realize something...

We need more 007 riffing.  And Christopher Walken riffing.

View To A Kill has both. 

But I think the Pierce Brosnan ones would probably be easier to get ahold of, and just as over the top cheesy.

That's a great idea! I love how the goofy comic relief character just kind of disappears in the second half of the movie with no explanation.

I'm sure these have been suggested but here goes:

1.  The Super Mario Brothers Movie.
2.  Leprechaun in the Hood  (Rapping Warwick Davis, Rapping Warwick Davis!)
3.  Theodore Rex (farting dinosaur fights crime with a cyborg Whoopi Goldberg...before Waterworld was the biggest financial flop...studios pull the plug on a theatrical release to save face/money)
4.  Dr. Mordrid (The failed live-action Dr. Strange flick)
5.   Beowolf.  Please, please please make fun of Beowolf/wulf when the DVD comes out.  Any film that ends with an implied shot of Angelina Jolie's glowing demon breasts needs this treatment.
6.  Planet of the Apes, Tim Burton version.
7.  Old Yeller.  Seriously. 
8....ah crap I'm ending my list before I just start throwing thriller on here.  Oh wait my final one:


Final Suggestion:

1972's Silent Running.  Since that's what MST3K was based off of.....would love to see it.

(1) Easy Rider
The goofy-ass editing and extremely dated clothing / drug culture alone should make for a hysterical Riff

(2) Premonition (Sandra Bullock, 2007)
If the Riffers would make getting thru this endurance trial of a terribly bad,boring film the least bit funny I would nominate them for the Nobel Peace Prize

(3) Blood and Chocolate
See reasons for (2) and add in horrible effects and actors that apparently aren't aware that they are even in a movie

(4) Cliffhanger (Stallone, 1990's)
Come on.  Cliffhanger... Stallone ... MOUNTAIN CLIMBING ... terrorists ... the chick from Northern Exposure that looks like a dude... this is a no brainer

(5) Forrest Gump
I hate this guy and he deserves to have his accident of successful, meaningful life Riffed to shreds

(6) Batman and Robin
Why hasn't this been done yet?  I figure maybe Mike is waiting for the planets to align or something, but it has to be done, and soon

Well there's 6 I would buy instantly!  Get going guys, great job so far  :D

Oh come on! At least in battlefield earth they use perspective shots and other effects to make travolta look the right height! They never even addressed the fact that genghis khan was likely to be aroung 5'8 or so and wayne was 6'4...

Post by: mlcorcoran on January 01, 2008, 05:39:55 PM
hello all,

i'm a long time mst3k fan and just recently discovered Rifftrax (I just downloaded and am watching the Top Gun trax right now in all its gum-chomping glory) and for my first post I'd like to present my list of suggested movies to riff

please note I'm omitting Batman & Robin because I heard rumors that it may be riffed soon, but as a lifelong Batman fan believe me it deserves to be riffed mercilessly

1. Masters of the Universe - Dolph "Ivan Drago" Lundgren as the musclebound sword-swinger who doesn't actually use his sword until the last 30 minutes and Frank Langella as a creepy walking skeleton with a god complex, and introducing Courtney Cox in her first movie (...but why?). Think of it as a louder, more special effects laden version of "Cave Dwellers" with laser guns stolen from a Star Wars fan film

2. Street Fighter - Video games that are based on nothing but fighting have little to no plot, and yet this movie still managed to butcher it. Starring Jean Claude Van Damme and Raul Julia in his last film as, you guessed it, a video game super-villain trying to take over the world.

3. The Ewok Adventure - if the Rifftrax Crew could handle the Star Wars Holiday Special than this desperate attempt to sell spinoff merchandising will be a walk in the park.

4. Judge Dredd - I liked this movie better when it was called Demolition Man because even though the two are identical (even down to cheesy cameos by Rob Schneider) at least Demolition Man attempts to be funny on purpose.

5. Highlander 2 - THE textbook example of a sequel that should never have existed, considering the original ended in a way that left no opening to continue the story ("There can be only one" has a sort of finality to it don't you think?) This movie gave us the concept that the immortals are actually time traveling aliens and that Christopher Lambert can act.

6. Grease 2 - another "why does it exist?" sequel, as well as Michelle Pfeiffer's first movie. Crappy songs, crappier acting, and instead of John Travolta we get the guy from the Tom Hanks movie "Bachelor Party" in a lead role

7. The Wizard - Fred "Kevin Arnold" Savage takes his video game prodigy brother on a road trip to a video game tournament. This movie belongs in the Guinness Book of World Records as the longest toy commercial ever made.

8. Steel - Shaq takes a bit part character from Superman comic books, removes all connections to Superman, then makes a completely absurd movie about a 7 foot tall military engineer who uses a giant hammer and metal armor that conveniently fits only him to fight crime.

9. The Skulls - a murder mystery about the most evil, vile organization in the world: a college fraternity. Featuring Paul Walker as a not very fast and not very furious preppy frat boy and Coach T. Nelson as his manipulative father and starring the kid from Mighty Ducks as the sort-of hero.

10. Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie - The tv show "Super Sentai" was such a big hit in Japan that American producers decided to take its stock footage and edit around it (barely) with English speaking actors, thus creating the color-coded superheroes of the 90s. They had it all, bright costumes, fancy karate moves, and giant robots. Did I miss anything? Plot maybe? Nah we can skid by without that as long as toy sales stay up.

That's a damn good list micro.  Couple of them would be harder to find than others, but I think all of them are possible.

And yeah, the Batman and Robin riff is coming up this year.  All the details are here.

Post by: mlcorcoran on January 08, 2008, 02:03:35 PM
I agree with all of those except the Simpson's Movie. Even if the jokes aren't that good or the movie's not that well done, I don't know how you could riff a comedy that makes fun of itself.

I wouldn't mind seeing a rifftrax of the 2nd Banderas Zorro movie, Legend of Zorro. Whenever an action movie depends on the headstrong little kid character to move the story along, you know you're in trouble.

Post by: RoninFox on January 08, 2008, 02:11:13 PM
Agreed on the Simpsons Movie not being riffable, not just because I liked it, but because it's satire.  Robin Hood Prince of Thieves though?  Excellent choice.

4.) (http://i167.photobucket.com/albums/u160/stansimpson/ivan_ooze.jpg) Power Rangers: The Movie* - Because it makes you realize what horrible taste you had as a kid.
3.) Any video game movies* -
               a. (http://i167.photobucket.com/albums/u160/stansimpson/Untitled9.jpg) Super Mario Brothers - One of the most ridiculous movies ever made. 
               b. (http://i167.photobucket.com/albums/u160/stansimpson/Untitled8.jpg) Street Fighter - STILL no Van Damme riffs yet!?
               c. (http://i167.photobucket.com/albums/u160/stansimpson/Untitled7.jpg) Mortal Kombat - Best video game adaptation ever... wow... what does THAT say?
               d. Double Dragon
               e. (http://i167.photobucket.com/albums/u160/stansimpson/Untitled6.jpg) The Wizard - 80's cheesefest with Fred Savage made to sell Nintendo's stock by manipulating an autistic child.  What's not to love?
2.) (http://i167.photobucket.com/albums/u160/stansimpson/Untitled5.jpg) Masters of the Universe* - DOLPH!  Prime 80's cheese!  Loads of fun!  A laugh-riot waiting to be had!  And DOLPH!

*denotes "highly unlikely" due to limited prints available.


I'd like to introduce the Hell's Snowball category.  As in:  Hell will freeze over when they let ONE fan choose the movie.  If they gave me MY pick:
(http://i167.photobucket.com/albums/u160/stansimpson/Untitled3.jpg) Lost In Translation - Not because I hate it, but because I adore it.

Here's my top ten in no particular order

1)  No Holds Barred (Sure it doesn't have Bonesaw but it has Hulk Hogan! )
2)  The Chipmunk Adventure (The Chipettes becoming a part of a harem... Check  Penguins that have their own civilized society?  Check... main villian wearing nothing under that very tiny robe... Unfortunatly... Check...)
3) Masters of the Universe ( This is just begging for it )
4) Friday the 13th:  Jason X (hey, rifftrax did Halloween, why not this movie that is one big parody in itself?)
5) Hellraiser: Bloodlines (Doug Bradly didn't even look like he wanted to be in this tripe.  Also, you have to worry if the director's name is Alan Smithee)
6) Mortal Kombat 1 or 2 (either would be great.  in 2, you get to see Lui kang have a fight with the camera man!)
7) Fist of the North Star (the live action movie or the dubbed anime would do!  "Now you are dead"  "No I'm not"  BOOM! )
8) The Punisher (the Dolf Lungren version of course! Keep in mind... I actually like this movie XD )
9)  Die Hard (Great Christmas movie, but it does need a riffing too I feel)
10)  Street Fighter (Why isn't there a van damme film in here yet?)

3. Fast and Furious: Tokyo Drift
4. Can you do ANY Disney films without getting your heinies sued off? If so proceed on ANY of them.
5. Especially Tron
6. A Walk to Remember (my daughter made me watch this and it is truly loathsome)
7. More LOTR, Harry Potter, or Indy
8. The Odyssey (that AWFUL one with Armand Assante - jeez, what a stinkburger. Especially the Aeolus from Brooklyn)
9. Spartacus - all-time testosterone classic, but might be too good to riff...

Post by: DrunkPagan on January 11, 2008, 12:05:42 PM
After consideration and consultation, I am altering my top ten list. I just watched National Treasure. My brain... it hurts...

My top ten:
Hellboy (Oh, crap. Forgot the damn plot...)
League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (The league ish asshembled. Yesh.)
Virtuosity (He's a composite of over a thousand serial killers. But still has no personality.)
National Treasure (Ben Franklin kept his best stash in a secret corncob pipe.)
Super Mario Bros. (If this movie makes less than fifty dollars, it'll bomb! Too late.)
Alone in the Dark (Don't leave this one alone... in the dark. My bro and I riffed this movie once. It's fun as hell!)
Titan A.E. (You can't defeat the Drej, they're pure energy! And yet, we're all feeling drained.)
Jurassic Park 3 ("Did you hear that? Run, it's a dinosaur! We're safe. Did you hear that? Run, there's a dinosaur! We're safe. Did you hear that?" Honestly, it's practically a drinking game.)
The Scorpion King ("*sings*... LIKE A ROCK!")
The Mummy/The Mummy Returns (It is a Brendan Fraser movie. 'Nuff said.)

Other suggestions:
Beastmaster (Maalox? Did he say his name was Maalox?"
Taxi (Q. How can a movie filled with supermodels go so wrong? A. Queen Latifah.)
I, Robot (I, nautious)
Escape from LA (Escape from success)
Baby Geniuses (Shoulda let the freakin babies write it)
Donnie Darko (Donnie Dorko)
Solaris (In space, no one can hear this movie. I wanna go!)
Dawn of the Dead, remake (Why are the zombies all on crack?)

I'm sure I can think of more. Let me turn the TV on.

Tomb Raider (Like Indiana Jones, but more jiggly)
The Wild Wild West (Barry Sonnenfeld's version. Giant steam-powered walking spiders? Check, please)
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (Too painful... soapy pre-teen drama... why doesn't the evil wizard KILL them already?!?)

I gotta stop now. I think I'm having an anuerism.

My current top eleven.  All available on DVD currently.  I tried to think of some titles I didn't see requested all the time.

Howling II - Your Sister Is A Werewolf - Starring Christopher Lee, Sybil Danning and that guy who played the chunk head in Space Mutiny!

Can't Stop The Music - starring Bruce Jenner, The Village People and that up and coming talent, Steve Gutenberg!  Remember how bad The Star Wars Holiday Special was?  Just replace all the wookies with Village People and all the music with, uh, songs by the Village People.

Face/Off - Nicholas Cage and John Travolta in Freaky Friday 2: This Time It's Personal

Cobra - only Sly Stallone at the height of his popularity could make a movie this stupid

Ghost Rider - Nicholas Cage with a flaming skull, Sam Elliot and his moustache, Peter Fonda picking up a paycheck

The Man With The Golden Gun - I'd love to see any classic James Bond movies done but this is one of my favorites.  You've got Roger Moore, Christopher Lee and Hervé Villechaize, what's not to love?

Star Wars Episode IV:  A New Hope - we all know it by heart and love it to pieces but that doesn't mean it isn't extremely riffable

Star Trek II The Wrath of Khaaaaan! - I know, everybody's sick of Star Trek riffs.  But I don't see how this one wouldn't be great.

and these three are very unlikely but I thought I'd throw them out there (all available from Netflix at least)

Two Lane Blacktop - a cult classic counter culture drag racing movie starring James Taylor and Dennis Wilson.  Amazingly slow and pointless for a movie about fast cars.  Plus you get to hear long haired James Taylor dropping f-bombs.

Frankenstein Unbound - a Roger Corman directed feature from 1990 with Raul Julia as Dr. Frankenstein, Bridget Fonda as Mary Shelley, Michael Hutchence from INXS as Lord Shelley,  oh and John Hurt as the scientist from the future with the sexy talking car.  No, I did not make that last part up.

And lastly...

Any two episodes of T.J Hooker!  If you're a fan of William Shatner, this show features the most Shat allowed by law.  And from Season Two on you also get a young Heather Locklear.  An episode I'd recommend is 'Hooker's War' from Season One.  Guest stars Vic Tayback (Mel from 'Alice') and Sid Haig!

About Hostel...how do you riff Hostel?

Post by: DU HASTE on January 14, 2008, 05:46:46 PM
After consideration and consultation, I am altering my top ten list. I just watched National Treasure. My brain... it hurts...

My top ten:
Hellboy (Oh, crap. Forgot the damn plot...)
League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (The league ish asshembled. Yesh.)
Virtuosity (He's a composite of over a thousand serial killers. But still has no personality.)
National Treasure (Ben Franklin kept his best stash in a secret corncob pipe.)
Super Mario Bros. (If this movie makes less than fifty dollars, it'll bomb! Too late.)
Alone in the Dark (Don't leave this one alone... in the dark. My bro and I riffed this movie once. It's fun as hell!)
Titan A.E. (You can't defeat the Drej, they're pure energy! And yet, we're all feeling drained.)
Jurassic Park 3 ("Did you hear that? Run, it's a dinosaur! We're safe. Did you hear that? Run, there's a dinosaur! We're safe. Did you hear that?" Honestly, it's practically a drinking game.)
The Scorpion King ("*sings*... LIKE A ROCK!")
The Mummy/The Mummy Returns (It is a Brendan Fraser movie. 'Nuff said.)

Other suggestions:
Beastmaster (Maalox? Did he say his name was Maalox?"
Taxi (Q. How can a movie filled with supermodels go so wrong? A. Queen Latifah.)
I, Robot (I, nautious)
Escape from LA (Escape from success)
Baby Geniuses (Shoulda let the freakin babies write it)
Donnie Darko (Donnie Dorko)
Solaris (In space, no one can hear this movie. I wanna go!)
Dawn of the Dead, remake (Why are the zombies all on crack?)

I'm sure I can think of more. Let me turn the TV on.

Tomb Raider (Like Indiana Jones, but more jiggly)
The Wild Wild West (Barry Sonnenfeld's version. Giant steam-powered walking spiders? Check, please)
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (Too painful... soapy pre-teen drama... why doesn't the evil wizard KILL them already?!?)

I gotta stop now. I think I'm having an anuerism.

beautiful list yet despressing when I look at my dvd collection and realize I own half the list!
May I add....
Jumaniji.(that was one butt ugly child actor that turned into one butt ugly man ...robin williams)
All the Pirates movies  ...I just left the movie thinking all the pirates could survive without women
and lastly THE HULK  I would rather chance it and watch the tv shows as an adult on the hopes it was as good as i remembered.
wait ANY movie with Hallle Barry and  Sharon Stone including catwoman

Hey, I LIKED Hellboy! Doesn't mean it couldn't be riffed, though.
Gotta put out the word (I did on the first page too) on "In the Name of the King."
Get this cast (OK, medieval movie...) Burt Reynolds as the king, Jason Statham as some kind of warrior, Ray LIOTTA as a sorcerer!?!?!? WTF!?!?! I think John Rhys-Davies and our friend Hellboy are in there somewhere oo. Word is that it's as INSTANT dreck classic, with dialogue that would gag a maggot.

I'd buy any of the below in an instant:

1. The Frighteners - From a forum search I guess my sentiment here is not shared, and that's a shame...I don't think this movie is "bad" either, maybe not especially good, but very riffable.
2.  Hudson Hawk  - see 1, but definitely more awful.
3.  Stargate
4.  Conan the Barbarian
5.  Lethal Weapon 4
6.  Weekend at Bernies
7.  Final Fantasy, The Spirit Within

and the following less specific but still not covered genres:

8.  Any "Dog" movie that isn't Turner and Hooch, there's at least 3 I can name, refrain from Beethoven-style if possible.
9.  Any documovie based on a famous musician, my fav here would be La Bamba, but Walk the Line is ripe too...and already done.
10.  Pick any film with Pierce Brosnan that isn't 007, ANY FILM.

Outland  [1981] -  (Sean Connery space Marshall Vs. Peter Boyle Future-Meth Smuggling Mine Manager)  This is so Riff-Ripe... so so ripe.

Robot Jox  [1990] - If anyone has seen this... then you know what I'm talkin about.

The 13th Warrior [1999] - Antonio Banderas as an arab courtier Vs. wierdo tribal cannibals in Viking lands.  oooooookaaaay.

The Hitcher [1986] - The hero is such a lame-ass that I wound up rooting for the killer (Rutger Hauer) the whole movie.... Actually made it way more fun.

The Phantom [1996] - SLAM EVIL!

The Rocketeer [1991] - So many movies that are sooo ripe for riffing... it's getting harder to pick between em...

The Sword and the Sorcerer [1982] - There's only one movie that's more ripe than this......

The Warrior and the Sorceress [1984] - Starring David Carridine and a chick with 4 boobs????


------------
These selections are all based on the fact that they are the "Most Riffable" movies I can think of.
I'm just gonna stick with 8, because I feel that these 8 are good enough to count for any other 10.
If I saw any ONE of these Riffed, I could die happy.  I really want an Outland or Robot Jox riff.... They BEG for riffing.

-EDIT-

Reading these other posts again- my last 2 would have to be Stargate and Waterworld.
They are both ripe like these.

1. Dune stings speedo is just to good.  if ya wanna go all out do the extended tv version!
2. godzilla 1998 for those who though japanese godzilla films were bad.
3. Rambo first blood part II or any others but i think this is best suited
4. Tim Burtons planet of the apes actually the original planet could be fun too or better yet beneath.  charlton heston needs to be riffed.
5. Alexander dont know where to start with this one (three different cuts could be tricky for consumers though)
6. id like to see more tv shows heres an oddball choice: Iron Chef USA not the version on tv now but the really bad cancelled after two episodes version with william shatner (it is on dvd).
7. The giant claw really really really really bad
8. another oddball choice for rifftrax on demand take a buncha edison shorts and riff the beginning of film.
9.  superman IV we got all the other main super heroes so oughta follow up
10. MST3k The movie this would be surreal and offer a nice bonus feature for the new dvd!

hope to see these soon!

8. Legend - filmed through more gauze than has ever been wrapped around wounds, Legend makes you wonder if your cataracts are acting up, or is that Tom Cruise looking rather fruity?

6. The Lord of the Rings (1978) – so how do you take a 1,000 page epic and boil it down to a 2 hour 12 minute animated feature? You don’t, unless you’re Ralph Bakshi. So dizzyingly paced that you’ll soon confuse Gandalf for Mickey Mouse in Fantasia.


I was talking with one of my friends about some movies the other day when "Legend" came up.  We had both seen the movie at some time in the past mainly because we're fans of Tangerine Dream, and we were both laughing at how bad we thought it was.  Bad enough to be enjoyable, actually!  So I searched here, and sure enough there's already a few votes for a rifftrax to "Legend".  I'd love to have a rifftrax for this.  Add my vote to that list!

I also noticed the mention of the animated version of "Lord of the Rings".  I remember when that came out.  My sister and I are both big Tolkien fans, and were hoping for a LOT more than this film had to offer.  I'm rather surprised that it's available on DVD.  The review from Amazon mentions:

Bakshi's lamentable decision to combine traditional cel animation with "rotoscoped" (i.e., meticulously traced) live-action footage is jarringly distracting and aesthetically disastrous, but...

and that's the main thing I remember about it.  I'm not quite as eager to see this again, but if a rifftrax showed up for it then I'm sure I would buy it!  I was a bit surprised that people wanted a rifftrax for the Peter Jackson version, seeing that this version has sooooo much more to riff on!

I actually like Hudson Hawk as a fun movie, even without any rifftrax. But I'd certainly pick up a rifftrax for it if one was done!

Stargate wouldn't be bad for a rifftrax, but (as I've already said in some other forum thread), I'd much rather see a rifftrax for "Star Crash"...

Here's mine, after a tad bit of thought:


1 ) Jaws: The Revenge
2 ) Pokemon: The First Movie
3 ) High School Musical
4 ) Super Mario Bros.
5 ) Dune (David Lynch's, of course)
6 ) National Treasure
7 ) The League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen
8 ) Signs
9 ) A Beautiful Mind
10 ) Critters

Could change after more consideration, but those top 5 are definitely just that.

2) Pokemon: The First Movie

Substitute the second movie in there and we can hear Weird Al over the end credits.  Might make it go down easier.

8)   CIRCLE OF IRON -- think maybe David Carradine could be persuaded to guest riff? I think that would be cool.

You are my new best friend. This would be a great riff. Is it even available on DVD though?


Some other list in this forum thread suggested some other David Carradine movie, and that reminded me of this movie.  I haven't seen it in at least 20 years, so it took me awhile to figure out which movie was the one I remembered.  This movie from 1978 (sometimes called "The Silent Flute") was pretty bad at spots, although David Carradine himself was not too bad in it.  Certainly he was not bad compared to the main character of the movie!

Amazon has two versions of this DVD available.  A single-DVD version released in 2004, and a two-disc version released in May 2007 "with one and a half hours of newly-produced extras!", including a commentary from David Carradine.  I'd certainly go for this as a rifftrax.  It'd be a riot if they could get David Carradine to be a guest-riffer on it!  (but I doubt that will happen  ;D  I think he's a bit too laid-back to be good at riffing movies, even if he wanted to)

Carradine was the best part of the movie, hands down, and I enjoyed watching it, but I'll agree this has a lot of riffing potential.

Wonder how much different it might have been had Bruce Lee been able to finish it.

ZARDOZ!

the worst / best / worst again movie EVER.

Sean Connery in the worst costume ever....

TABERNAAACLE!(http://ruthlessreviews.com/pics/zardoz1.gif)


Everything else has to come after that.... even Robot Jox..... as much as it hurts to say.... hehehe
This is like, the big Cake-Taker of all riff-ripe movies... there's more riff potential in the first 10 minutes of this movie than in a lot of other movies put together.

I mean, it starts with a guy wearing boxers on his head and a drawn-on set of facial hair..... COME ON

After sitting and reviewing the previous posts with hubby, we tried to come up with our Top 10 List...  Here's our list, in no particular order:

1.  The Wild Bunch (those slow-motion deaths give plenty riff material)
2.  Original Trilogy of Star Wars (IV-VI) (they just HAVE to be done!)
3.  Remainder of the Harry Potter series ('cause you know they're gonna be great!)
4.  The Avengers (the Uma Thurman trainwreck of a movie)
5.  The Italian Job (don't care which version -- they're extremely riffable)
6.  Escape from New York (see St. Louis after dark!) or Escape from L.A. (not as desirable but still worth it)
7.  Gettysburg (a little history with your laughter and fake beards all around!)
8.  The Great Escape (a favorite of ours and you'd HAVE to get Eddie Izzard to be the guest riffer)
9.  Zulu (Michael Caine's first movie!)
10.  Crimson Tide (a true toad of a movie)

There are some movies we'd suggest but we know we'd be shot for even mentioning them (Schindler's List, Casablanca, Bullitt, any Clint Eastwood "spaghetti western," Rain Man, Regarding Henry, Raisin in the Sun, and others).  You could exchange Crimson Tide for any submarine-based craptastic movie (20,000 Leagues Under the Sea (Disney!); K-19; U-571; Run Silent, Run Deep, etc.).  Foreign language films would be fun (i.e. Life is Beautiful) but it's hard to riff over subtitles.  Then there are some that deserve it 'cause they're....well....awful:  "The Frisco Kid" (the rabbi goes west -- worse than "Gunlinger); "Little Shop of Horrors" (Roger Corman's version, or the musical, doesn't matter); "It's Pat" (this crap writes itself!); "Howard the Duck" (I liked it, hubby hated it...and so did the rest of the world); and "Staying Alive" (Travolta directed by Stallone??  How can you miss??)

Anyway, those are our suggestions....  We know there are plenty more turds out there, but we'll stop for now.  ;D

"Little Shop of Horrors" (Roger Corman's version, or the musical, doesn't matter)

Mike did a collaboration with Legend on the Corman version. Check it out, its absolutely hilarious.

Clint Eastwood "spaghetti western," - I'd love to see a western get riffed. Hopefully Rifftrax will eventually branch out into more generas.

1. Dungeons and Dragons- Thora Birch's WORST PERFORMANCE EVER! And as if that wasn't fertile enough ground for ripe lampooning, you also get Marlon Waynes, Jeremy Irons, and Justin Whalin giving a performance that will make you hate Dungeons and Dragons for the rest of your life.

2. Willow- I love this movie, but is is just way to easy to have a riot lampooning. You guys have to do it!

3. Elektra- the people who wrote this movie should be beaten to death with a sack of oranges for turning one of the best femme fatales comics have ever produced into an inane character not even Jennifer Garner in skin tight clothes could make appealing.

4. Any James Bond movie- the possibilities are too ridiculous to enumerate.

5. Punisher- not the Thomas Jane Punisher (which was only half-bad, though Travolta's hair alone could fill a warehouse with possible jokes), but the old-school Dolph Lundgren Punisher. Oh Yeah!

6. Who Framed Roger Rabbit- the only danger with lampooning this film is that it might be way too easy for the crew.

7. Airheads- as bad as any Brandon Frasier movie is, this one has got to be the worst ever. And yet it launched his career. Baffling...

8. Waterworld- you have seen this right? I don't really need to say anything else do I?

9. Apocalypse Now- this one would be a real, honest challenge. But if you could pull it off, it could be a masterpiece of comedic genius.

10. Casino- you'd have to charge like 4.99 to get your monies worth out of the customers ('cause the movie is like three hours and change), but it would be so worth it. Soooooo worth it!

2- logans run: logan and his band reach the ancient library and find out how to make money. they return to the land of supermodels and set up a sign that reads "come one come all and see an actual old and stinky man, 10 neodallars, gas masks provided"

3- the seven faces of dr.lao: yes my son, sooner or later we all rot and die, but your naive mind is too underdeveloped to process this wisdom, so dance i say, dance like youve never danced before!

4- adventures in babysitting: (sniff*sniff*) you have touched my inner child, go on and take your station wagon free of charge, and may the gods of olympus protect thee in your sittings of babies!

5- neverending story: hey falcor, here's an idea, why dont we just fly over the sphinx's and the magic mirror? we can save fantasia and make it back in time for more of urgl's good ol batwing broth.

6- gleaming the cube: and thus was born "the ear flicking detective" and his streetwise sidekick "skater boy", watch out evil villains.

7- bloodsport: witness chong li unleash his "blinding chop", aka "completely noticeable powder"

8- the lost boys: i am, bill s. preston, esquire! and together, we are, "wyld vampz"! air guitar*

9- cant buy me love: rico, i dont find throwing a poop bomb on someones house being an act of "suave"-ness at all, do you mister?

10- krull: now why did i waste all this time with a stupid throwing star, when i couldve just burned the bad guys to a crisp with my magic wedding fingers? till death do us part biotches!

10. The Invisible - Horrible teen melodrama from the director of Blade 3.

9. Little Man - Or any of the Wayan's "Comedies"

8. Planet of the Apes - Tim Burton's imagination let him down on this one.

7.  The Day After Tomorrow. - Senseless tripe combined with terrible scripting - Winner!

6. Running Scared - Could have been a good movie but it just went crazy at about half way - lots of WFT moments to make fun of.

5. Swept Away - I've not seen this but any Madonna movie would be worth a riff.

4. Four Rooms - Lots of variety - lots of wasted potential to mock.

3. Land of the Dead - admit it - it's rubbish!

2. Alone in the Dark - This movie is funny enough on it's own, imagine what could happen with an additional Rifftrax?!

1. A Sound of Thunder. - Probably the worst "blockbuster" ever made. Completely unfinished, although it would have been terrible anyway - This NEEDS to be riffed!

The Substitue- Military Mercenary takes on a bunch of juvenile delinquents and finds out a bunch of other bad guy mercenaries are transporting druggs into their school. It spawned a bunch of worse sequals starring the father from that show everwood.

Power Rangers Movie- This movie killed my interest in the show, the Villain seemed overly gay.

Alien V.S Predater- Since when are the Predators ever "good guys"? I could barely hear anything from the movie it was too damn loud.

The Condemned- Stone Cold Steve Austin, just without the ring. Plus the movies plot is absolutely copied from another film called
"No Escape" with a crossover from another plot from the video game "Manhunt". Someone should be suing the WWE.

The Marine- Ive already seen Commando.

Pet Cemetary 2- They try to be scary but its impossible. Obviously they werent given the budget that the first one had. Probably because Steven King had nothing to do with it.

Escape From L.A- I loved Escape from NewYork. It was a original and had a message and was an all around good scifi action flick. But this horrible sequal was obviously an insult by John Carpenter to his fans. They asked for a Snake Plissken Sequal. He hates sequals, so he gave them this.

WaterWorld- A huge budget. Accademy award winning actors and directors. Theres no excuse why this movie got its ass kicked by Clerks.

The Postman- Another Kevin Costner failure. A former office worker, I presume, cashes in on an unsuspecting town in a post apocolyptic future when he poses as postal worker and brings letters from a  reinstalled capital in the U.S that doesnt exist. Some how some way, this movie has a happy ending where everythings back to normal. Pretty Convenient Kev....

Fantastic Four- I can't believe they managed to get the guy that played in The Shield and Jessica Alba in a movie together. From this horrible combination I found out about 2 people I enjoyed watching previous films and t.v shows of, cannot act whatsoever.

When I was in college we did a play that worked kind of like how Clue: The Movie worked -- the audience got to submit guesses as to how they thought it would end and then we did the ending that most fit what they wanted.  It was fun but hard to learn all the parts!

The other night my husband and I started riffing on "The Great Escape" and other WWII-escape movies.  After seeing the Jurassic Park rifftracked, it made it easier to jump on Richard Attenborough's part in GE... (Why yes, Steve, and the fences here will keep out raptors, too!)

Made no sense and consisted entirely of throwbacks to previous Rush Hours.
9. A Walk to Remember
Sweet enough to kill a diabetic...I'd love to see it riffed.
8. Conan the Barbarian
*envisions all the governator/policy jokes*
7. The Howling
This could be Rifftrax's answer to MST3K's 'Werewolf'.
6. White Chicks
This one hurt. It was a Mobius strip of pain. You guys riffing it might ease the pain.
5. The Mummy
Yep, the one with Brendan Fraser. It was mildly entertaining, but there's a lot of riffing potential.
4. Pirates of the Carribean (any one of them, or perhaps all of them)
Same as #5. I didn't really hate these movies that much...they just seem so riffable.  ;)
3. Titanic
C'mon. This one's a no-brainer.
2. Being John Malkovich
A horrible, twisted, mind-messing-upping movie. I think this one made me physically ill.
1. Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie
This one may be too easy. The movie is hilarious by itself. In fact, the entire Power Rangers franchise is truly awesomely bad, and deserving of a good-natured riffing.

In no particular order:

1. Big Trouble In Little China
Those who have watched it, know what needs to be done. Just read a description of the movie and see what i mean.

2. Tango & Cash
Two action stars in a buddy cop movie with tons of cliches and bad puns.

3. Enter The Dragon
I know it's a classic, but me and my friends take great pleasure in riffing it ourselves so i know it can be done and even more hilarious if the "pros" did it.

4. Blade
The scene where Blade cuts the main vampire in half then he comes back together with blood makes me think of a Stretch Armstrong joke every time.

5. Clue
It sort of makes fun of itself, but i think Mike and them could pull it off

6. Lord of The Rings: The Two Towers
The first one was funny as shit and i need my fix man

7. Caddy Shack 1 or 2
a classic movie that has the potential to be an all time classic riff for years to come.

8. Death Proof
the only way i would watch this terrible movie again was if it was riffed.

9. Fight Club
a plethora of meat loaf jokes a comin.

10. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 1,2, or 3
the ultimate guest riffer for these movies would be Corey Feldman.

Caddyshack?  Are you nuts?

Do you really think they want to look like total asses by trying to be funnier than Caddyshack?

I agree. I think the only type of movie that wouldn't work for Rifftrax is a genuinely funny comedy. On MST3K, Catalina Caper barely worked because it was a comedy, just a very unfunny one. So to riff on a funny movie like Caddyshack, Ghostbusters, etc. Wouldn't really work.
Caddyshack 2, on the other hand....

10.) Taxi - Jimmy Fallon is pure evil.

9.)  Man of the House - Tommy Lee Jones' most degrading role ever.

8.)  The Jazz Singer - This is "Glitter"... Neil Diamond style.  Endless riff potential from Neil's hair alone.

7.)  The Skulls - Mike could have a ball with Josh "Action" Jackson in an ivy league setting.  Craig T. Nelson's mustache steals the show.

6.) Waterworld - Costner drinks from his own well.  How could that not be great?  Length could be an issue.

5.)  54 - What a horrid display.  Ryan Phillipe in the most expressive screen performance since Denise Richards in Starship Troopers.  Mike Myers could drive a Quaker into a homicidal rage with his truly troublesome performance.

4.)  Kuffs - Christian Slater has slid by for long enough.  Let's watch him in his most skin peeling role.

3.)  Dirty Dancing - The Shirtless One in a full on "rebel with a heart of gold" assault.  Plus, the mocking track might finally convince my wife that this movie is rotten to the core.

2.)  The Postman - Kevin Costner's largest act of self-gratification to date.  Shot entirely in "Costner-Vision" for your Costner viewing pleasure.

1.)  Rhinestone - The worst thing that Stallone has ever done.  Now, that's saying something.  In this installment, our mush mouthed, arm wrestlin', grenade throwing, mountain climbing, Russian punching, Tango & Cashing embarrassment attempts to blend in with the hill folk.  He sings, He dances, he kisses Dolly Parton.  Thoroughly disturbing.

10 -  Clockstoppers (if you don't remember this, then you're a better person for forgetting it... never let johnathon frakes direct a non-star trek movie)
9 - Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (The original live action one!!!  ;D )
8 - Planet of the Apes (the remake)
7 - Day After Tomorrow
6 - The Core
5 - Armageddon
4 - Deep Impact
3 - The Pilot episode of the new Knight Rider series
2 - Mean Girls (w/ Lindsay Lohan)
...and my NUMBER ONE I would die to see
1 - Godzilla (the 1998 American one.  I would KILL to see a riff of this one) :clap:

That's the thing, a bad horror, sci-fi, action movies become comedies. Bad comedies just become embarassing and painful to watch (like a drunk aunt at a wedding). Dramas often do this, too (see MST3K's Hamlet).

10. (ok it counts as 1) The original Star Wars Trilogy, with the extended crap released in the 90's. The guys would go to town on the added scenes.
9. Jersey Girl
8. Anything Ben Affleck, Keanu Reeves (except bill&Teds), or Matthew McCounaghey
7. Anything from Chick-flick Hell
6. Inconvenient Truth
5. V for Vendetta
4. Ghost Rider
3. Pacifier
2. You Got Served

first post here... theres a lot of great suggestions, I tried not to make any repeats. But I also didn't feel like reading 60 pages.

10.  Assault on Precinct 13..... Morpheus Vs. Fast and the Furious..
9. The Saint.... Val Kilmer, a master of disguise........ :gouge:
8. Dante's Peak... Pierce Brosnon is Super-English-Geologist Man!... Volcano could easily fit here as well.
7. Eraser... "No.. dats joust a few peeeces of plaztik and papaarrghhh!.. WHO YOU REALLY ARGH IS IN HERERGH!", very insightful, Arnie.
6. Junior.. now... I don't think I've ever seen this all the way through without getting an aneurysm.... but a pregnant governator would make for some serious quality riffage.
5. The Rock.... God bless Bruckheimer's infatuation with Nicholas Cage for the greater part of the late 90's. Leaving Rifftrax with countless hours of material.
4. Con-Air.... see above
3. Twister... "NO! we need MORE natural disaster movies! Don't let up! Put your backs into it, men!"
2. Deep Rising.. Holy C-actor marathon, Batman!... and Femke Jennsen  :-*



1. Johnny Mnemonic..... Keanu Reeves, Dolph Lundren and Henry Rollins.... <- There is absolutely nothing else I can say.


honorable mentions/I second the notion of: Stargate, 8MM, The Mummy, Last Action Hero, Waterworld, The 6th Day, End of Days, Predator 2, Ghost Rider, Hulk, X-Men 2-3, Armageddon, Deep Impact, Conan, RED SONYA, Escape from LA/NY, Big Trouble In the Little China....

Pretty much anything Arnold, Bruckheimer and Nicholas Cage is fair game

Post by: Gizmo the Great on March 04, 2008, 12:35:20 PM
As people have said before, sorry if there are repeats in this............
Also may not be in order...

10) The Shadow - The MAIN Baldwin brother as a super-hero.. He laughs a lot in this :D
 9)   Hard Rain - Christian Slater is all wet....Sorry. :rimshot:     
  8) Gymkata - I mean come on.....This is MST3K quality, and now readily available on DVD >:(
 7)  Congo - Laser monkeys the movie! ;D
 6)  Waterworld - No explanation needed ::)
 5)  Red Dawn - Wolverines!!!!!! >:D
 4) Invasion U.S.A - Chuck Norris with his Uzi Bra ;)
 3) Krull - This movie was supposed to beat Return Of The Jedi at the Box Office????? ???
 2) Firestorm - Howie Long's first and last starring role >:D
 1) And the best disaster movie ever, ever, ever......wait for it....VOLCANO! ;D

And the saddist part, I own all these titles. :highfive:

the worst / best / worst again movie EVER.

Sean Connery in the worst costume ever....

TABERNAAACLE!


Everything else has to come after that.... even Robot Jox..... as much as it hurts to say.... hehehe
This is like, the big Cake-Taker of all riff-ripe movies... there's more riff potential in the first 10 minutes of this movie than in a lot of other movies put together.

I mean, it starts with a guy wearing boxers on his head and a drawn-on set of facial hair..... COME ON

and in the category "best usage of panty/suspender combo" we have a tie:

This is not in ANY Special order.

1. Logan's Run
2 .All the Home movies that my parent's took of us when we were kids in the 70's. The clothes alone would create giggles.
3. LadyHawke    I really want to know what the animals are thinking.
4. ClockWork Orange.
5.  The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari   ( Any silent film is open for automatic riffing, but would be cool to see at least one silent film riffed.)
6.  Clash of the Titans
7.  Road Warrior
8.  Wolf (1994 with Jack Nicholson)
9.  The cat from outer space/ the apple dumpling gang.
10.   Any movie that I can instantly watch on my NetFlix would be a major plus.

I think Mike said it best in one of his interviews, something about this destroying the universe.

Mike's very good at destroying things. It's about time he upgraded from planets to the whole universe.

I do really like the idea of them either doing a meta-riff for MST3K: The Movie, or using Rifftrax to do a commentary.

That is a stupid idea. People keep bringing it up, and it always sounds stupid no matter how it is explained.

A commentary would be great, but that is not a Rifftrax.  MST3k was cancelled.

Exactly.  If it were a commentary about how the movie was made and differences between making it and the show or stories about problems with the studio or whatever, I'd be interested and I'd listen.  If they were riffing, how would you follow it.  I already have friends who don't like MST3K/Rifftrax/Cinematic Titanic etc. because they have trouble following the plot of the movie while catching all the jokes, How hard would it be to keep track of jokes about jokes about a movie?

If you really want to revisit MST3K the movie with new jokes, call for a Rifftrax of This Island Earth.  Not sure how widely available it is, but it looks like you can get it from Amazon.com for 11.49

1. GYMKATA:  for the love of all that is holy. GYMKATA! I know of at least one  video store that still has it on VHS.

2. GERRY:  this one is a challenge. You could just talk about other stuff that's funny, because nothing happens in this flick. Nothing.

3. Being John Malkovich:  c'mon. A monkey and an enboobed John Malkovich.

4. The Big Hit:  c'mon c'mon, feel it feel it, feel the vibrations

5. JUNO:  you could Riff her Riffs

6. Top Gun:  it's already one big gay joke. You just have to let out of the closet.

7.  Citizen Kane:  Think of all the fat jokes. And, how often do you get to make fun of the greatest movie of all time in a public forum

8. The Birds:  I could have handled that problem. Just get me two tennis rackets strung with bailing wire and a full face motorcycle helmet.

9.  The Other Sister:  making fun of the handicapped is Edgy. And who told Juliet Lewis she could act.

10.  Bloodsport, or Kickboxer, or Street Fighter, or Universal Soldier, or Time Cop, or... Just IMDB Jean Claude Van Damn, anyone of those shitstorms will do just fine.

I would like to amend my list to include all Costner films.  Somehow, there has been no Costner.  He is the most egotistical of all the major Hollywood stars.  Even in a role that had him serial killing... He was still just... a real good guy.  I need him mocked. 

He could be playing a burn victim with no appendages, and EVERY woman in the film would want him.  In "The Postman" his real life daughter even wants a piece of Cos-pie.

At the very least, we need Waterworld, and The Postman as requested.  Those are his two largest and most glaring errors in judgement, with the rest of his catalog a mere breath behind.

This is my only hope, other than praying for a winner take all, 4-way, steel cage death match between Costner, Stallone, Gay-Flan-Who, and Affleck.  That way three of them would be gone, and hopefully the remaining one would be too weak to ever step in front of (or behind) a camera again.

Peace from the K-Cos Nation... Have a Cos-tastic afternoon.

I don't know, but he left this silver urine-filtering machine.

(And that may be the only extended "Lone Ranger" joke this forum ever sees.)

Mr. benmurphy, if you're serious about wanting a Costner film, I suggest putting all your effort behind "Waterworld".  It's significantly shorter than "The Postman", which would be a huge grind for Mike and company to riff.  And its cheese quotient is far higher.

One man's opinion.

Post by: Thorns of Crimson Death on March 08, 2008, 08:43:51 PM
Hey guys, first post.

10. Dawn of the Dead (original)- One of my all time favorite movies.  I only list it because of it's now cheese-factor and it's riffable.  Hell you can't list at least one movie that you love that you want riffed, then what can you list?

9. Hostel- I loved the gore but the jokes during the worst of scenes (visually) would be hilarious

8. The Rock- Nic cage, thesbian un-extrodinaire and Sir Sean Connery in all their glory.

7.  Dr. Giggles.- I got it as a stocking stuffer on VHS years back and it's TERRIBLE.  The riffs from this one would be EPIC.

6. Who Framed Roger Rabbit?- Just think about it, the possibilities are endless.

5. Masters of the Universe- They took my beloved action figure collection as a kid and made it into a Dolph Lundgren abomination.  Plus it's from the peak of cheese that was the 80's.

4. Saw- As much as I loved the first one out of the series, it's ripe for riffing and I'd really like to see what the guys do with it

3. Top Gun- I don't think I should have to explain this one.  If you think I should, then you're obviously missing the point.

2. Any of the "Movies" made by the people that brought us "Date Movie", "Epic Movie", and "Meet the Spartans".  If you actually paid to see one of these throw away flicks/enjoyed them then please do the world a favor and kill yourself.

1. Clash of the Titans- Loved it growing up since I was raised on this type of movie but it's so incredibly riffable that it must be done.

Pretty new to the forums, and some of these are kinda obscure, but here goes:
10 - House of the Dead.  Uwe Boll must be stopped!  Plus, Clint Howard!
9 - Flash Gordon.  I heard they had to overdub all of Sam Jones' lines, cause he was just that bad.  Plus, "First wave, Diiiiiive!"
8 - The Haunting (Newer Version).  Took a classic and killed it.  Liam Neeson almost gets drowned by a statue, Owen Wilson decapitated by a fireplace, Catherine Zeta Jones tryin to seduce Lili Taylor!
7 - Escape from LA.  Just for the surfing scene.
6 - Icebreaker. Sean Astin is a heroic Ski Patrol guy (!) trying to keep the best actor working today, Bruce Campbell (with a shaved head), and his band of terrorists from taking a ski chalet hostage.  Yeah, it's just that retarded.
5 - Exorcist 2, The Heretic.  Every time Richard Burton says the word "evil" in the movie (and he says it a lot) he adds four "e's" to the front of it "Eeeeevil!"
4 - Leonard Part 6.  Bill Cosby hawking coca-cola and dancing in ballet slippers.  Also, weird subplot with his daughter getting married to an old guy.  Ewwww!
3 - Rat Pfink a Boo Boo.  It's out on DVD now and it's unbelievably bad.  A parody of the original "Batman" (which was already a parody) using maybe a tenth of the budget (even though they already had a low budget).  Horrible!
2 - Firewalker.  Ripping off Raiders of the Lost Ark, but doing it with no money, Lou Gossett, and, of course, Chuck Norris.  The joke possibilities are endless!  Plus, more continuity errors than you can shake a stick at.
And, coming in a number one....
MEGAFORCE!  I know its only out on VHS.  But a "manly" hero played by the same guy who played Brad in "Rocky Horror"?  a bad guy played by Henry Silva!  Directed by the man who brought you "Stroker Ace"? Flying motorcycles!  People kissing their thumbs! (don't ask)  It's like a bad movie lollapalooza!

10 - House of the Dead.  Uwe Boll must be stopped!  Plus, Clint Howard!
9 - Flash Gordon.  I heard they had to overdub all of Sam Jones' lines, cause he was just that bad.  Plus, "First wave, Diiiiiive!"
8 - The Haunting (Newer Version).  Took a classic and killed it.  Liam Neeson almost gets drowned by a statue, Owen Wilson decapitated by a fireplace, Catherine Zeta Jones tryin to seduce Lili Taylor!
7 - Escape from LA.  Just for the surfing scene.
6 - Icebreaker. Sean Astin is a heroic Ski Patrol guy (!) trying to keep the best actor working today, Bruce Campbell (with a shaved head), and his band of terrorists from taking a ski chalet hostage.  Yeah, it's just that retarded.
5 - Exorcist 2, The Heretic.  Every time Richard Burton says the word "evil" in the movie (and he says it a lot) he adds four "e's" to the front of it "Eeeeevil!"
4 - Leonard Part 6.  Bill Cosby hawking coca-cola and dancing in ballet slippers.  Also, weird subplot with his daughter getting married to an old guy.  Ewwww!
3 - Rat Pfink a Boo Boo.  It's out on DVD now and it's unbelievably bad.  A parody of the original "Batman" (which was already a parody) using maybe a tenth of the budget (even though they already had a low budget).  Horrible!
2 - Firewalker.  Ripping off Raiders of the Lost Ark, but doing it with no money, Lou Gossett, and, of course, Chuck Norris.  The joke possibilities are endless!  Plus, more continuity errors than you can shake a stick at.
And, coming in a number one....
MEGAFORCE!  I know its only out on VHS.  But a "manly" hero played by the same guy who played Brad in "Rocky Horror"?  a bad guy played by Henry Silva!  Directed by the man who brought you "Stroker Ace"? Flying motorcycles!  People kissing their thumbs! (don't ask)  It's like a bad movie lollapalooza! 


Great list!  :clap:  I gotta comment on a few of your selections.

The Haunting- Really good choice.  This movie was terrible.  I had to see it  in the theatre on a date when I was younger and we almost walked out.  Which brings me to another one to add to my list: White Noise.  People did walk out on this movie when I saw it and I regret not doing so myself.  All around terrible movie.

Leonard part 6- Brilliant choice, Bill Cosby rides a god damn ostrich in this movie and the plot (or lack there-of) is ridiculous.

Also I'd like to throw the movie "Doom" in there since it was yet another bad video game movie that shouldn't have been made.  They took one of the most iconic games and bastardized it.  Plus the whole plot line of the disease either turning you into a monster or making you superhuman had nothing to do with what was actually going on in the game.

Ok...I totally take it out , wish I never even mention riffing  MST3000, but like I said, it's not a new idea.  I hope they never do, but a commentary would be cool.  Boy..it's tough being the new kid on the block.
            Therefore I replace it with:  The Cat from outer space.     And as a back up...The Apple Dumpling Gang.   tee hee. :highfive:

Either The Apple Dumpling Gang or The Apple Dumpling Gang Rides Again would be cute -- but they were already bad enough on their own.  And not in a good way, either...  Bad enough that they're the types of movies you just can't eat popcorn to...  Now, when I was a kid and taped these (Betamax rules!) off HBO, well, that was another time and another embarrassment I don't want to go into right now.  ;D

LOL....I didn't see the "Apples's ride again".   There were so many shows I thought were soooo great when I was a kid and when I happen to see them again as a adult...WOW...do they suck.   For example...which is bad enough to say.  ISIS  on saturday mornings.
            How about the "Black Hole"  ???  I did love those floating robots.  I think that would be a great riff movie.

Cat from Outer Space! Sweeeet.  It could double feature with "That Darn Cat", either version!
Speaking of terrible live-action Disney, "The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes" (with Kurt Russell!  Jack Burton, Noooo!) wouldn't a bad choice, nor would the Lindsay Lohan "Herbie" movie.

Random list, cause I'm in a random mood. No particular reason, no particular order. Some of these movies are actually quite good or tolerable (not gonna say names!  ;D), but as Mike and the rest have shown, no movie is safe.  >:D

Snakes on a Plane (sadly, they'll probably never do it, but one can dream...one can dream..)
Corpse Bride
Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie
Jack Frost  (the 1998 "family" film, although what family would make their child endure such a horror is beyond me)
Clue
Matrix Revolutions (may as well go for the trilogy, man)
Legend (Tom Cruise running around in a gold skirt with lots of glitter...riff city!)
First Daughter
Romeo+Juliet
Red Sonja
Step Up
Bratz
The Polar Bear King (I admit, I loved it when I was a little kid, but the Rifftrax guys doing it now would remind me of those good old Swedish fairytale films that MST did for awhile, like The Day the Earth Froze or the Adventures of Sinbad. Good times.)
You Got Served (Kevin Federline....need I say more)
Although I can't FULLY dork out and say "OMGZ MIKE N THE BOTZ SHOULD DO ANIME" we could seek the next best thing and have them Riff
Akira or Ghost in the Shell (I'm very curious as to what they could do with them  >:D Oh, I can feel a little bit of my inner otaku dying. Ouch.  :gouge:)

Yeah, I'm done now. It's more than 10, it's really random, but whatever. I'm gonna go do stuff now.

You mean Lilly Tomlin? The scene was probably added in cuz she's... y'know. One a' them homosexualists.

To continue on the Haunting thing, the ending, with the whole pirate ghost-lookin' CGI thing, Jesus H. Koresh.

The Bebop choice of some animated stuff, makes me think of "Happily Ever After", the weird "feminist" sequel (note the quotes, I wouldn't want to think any smart feminists to think this flies) to Snow White produced by the same people who made "Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids."  Would be great for a riff (it's got a rap song by Ed Asner, for Chrips sake), but I think it's a. only available on VHS (cause I own it. Sorry, world) and b. almost too horrid to sit through.

Great choice of name, by the way, Bebop.  "And I say to myself, I need exact change."

As for the Clue thing, it's out in the $5 bin at Targets and other Box Marts right now. Maybe that's why so many are requesting it recently. Lol. Stores tend to circulate new stuff in the cheapo bins every once in a while to make way for newer inventory. They make room, I buy cheap dvds, Mike and crew riff them. We all win.

Post by: UglyBat19 on March 17, 2008, 05:35:11 PM
I've updated my top ten in the last few months.  It's not even remotely close to what it was, but it's better.  Keep in mind, most people have never even heard of half of these movies, but cult fans would probably flip if they were ever riffed.

10) Krull
Okay, a lot of people have heard (and even already suggested) this one.  But it's a validly bad movie.  I remember seeing and kind of liking it when I was about 5, even though I didn't quite understand what was going on.  I just saw on the Sci-Fi Channel a couple of months ago...I still don't understand it.

9) House of the Dead
MOST people have heard of this one too.  I don't think Uwe Bolle will ever get done by Riff Trax though.  He has been considered the Ed Wood of the new generation for quite a few years now.  Mike and Co. didn't think Plan 9 was optional because it was too easy.  But then again, they did finally do Plan 9.  I hope they do this one, because quite frankly, I bought for $2 (twice the budget of the movie) and I haven't been able to sit through more then 20 minutes of the damn thing since I bought it...about 2 and a half years ago.

8)
Masters of the Universe
I can't believe Dolph Lundgren hasn't been subjected to the Riff Trax treatment yet!  This, sadly might just be his best performance ever.  Anyone who watches Conan O'Brien would never be able to help making Donald Rumsfeld jokes whenever Skeletor is on screen.

7) Zombi 3
Those who know me, will know that Lucio Fulci is one of my all time favorite directors.  However, he wasn't perfect.  This movie was so imperfect, Lucio directed about 50 minutes worth of footage.  Then left.  Hackmeister Bruno Mattei took over.  The movie is as uneven as a movie half directed by a diabetic who just had a stroke and a guy who never made a good movie in his life.  This is one of the most riffable cult movies in the world.  If the flying zombie head doesn't win you over, the soundtrack will.

6) Rats: Night of Terror
Bruno Mattei strikes twice on my list.  This movie was one of those low budget Road Warrior rip-offs from the 80's.  Best part is, much like fellow Italian schlock maven Joe D'Amato (of Troll 2 infamy), this movie doesn't have any actual rats.  It has guinea pigs died black and then thrown on the actors by barely concealed P.A.'s.  Then there's the ending.

5) Azumi
I don't understand what this geek obsession with Japanese director Ryuhei Kitamura is.  All of these internet geeks say he's "The New Tarantino" I think he's a video game programmer who stumbled onto a film set one day, and the producer was just a temp. on his first day and said "Oh you must be the director.  Hope you know what your doing, because I am completely in over my head on this.  And that's how Azumi got made.  I mean really, there are PS1 games with better effects than this.

4)The He-Man/She-Ra X-Mas Special
I'm not even sure if this is on DVD.  But hey, the got the Star Wars Holiday Special.

3) Snuff
This was given a very limited DVD release.  But I think anyone with a Netflix account should be alright.  This is actually the movie that caused (and coined the term "snuff film") the whole Snuff movie panic in the 70's.  It claimed that to have had real actors getting murdered in the end.  Even though it's obviously a completely different cast and crew when it gets to that scene.  This movie is so hilariously bad it defies description.  How do you spell the main villains name any way?  Satin?  Saaten?

2) Zachariah
The first and last electric western.  The plot?  I was too busy struggling out of the coma this movie put me in.

1) Starcrash
A Star Wars rip-off, produced by Roger Corman, directed by an Italian production assistant, and featuring Joe Spinell, Christopher Plummer, and DAVID HASSELLHOFF!  This is one of my all time favorites.

I checked and made sure that at least most of these are available.  I at least want this list to be realistic, and not just wishful thinking.  Let me know what you know of the list.

By the way Amphibidud has the best list I've seen in a long time.

It's on DVD as disc one of "The Best of She-Ra" two disc set.  Not sure if Rifftrax would ever do it, but Greg McDuck and I wrote a script for it, feel free to join me in bugging him to finish recording it.   ;)

Interesting theory, but it does kind of go against the cartoon, we need something more specific to the special.

I still like the Voltron idea though.  I mean that was real big in the 80's right?  I mean, maybe we could turn into some sort of conglomerated 80's super beast!  We could be 100 feet tall, and wearing a pink and yellow boa harnessing the sun around our neck, and have like...A BIG MECHA MULLET!  With ATOMIC GLITTER all over!  With a big titanium T-shirt that says REAGAN/BUSH IN '84!  And highheeled leather boots, AND HOT PINK MEGA '80's TIGHTS OF POWER!  Then for a secret weapon, instead of a big sword or a laser blaster, we have...THE DURANDURANINATOR!!  It's a giant boombox that unleashes 100% PURE DURAN DURAN IN IT'S UNDILUTED FORM WHICH CAUSES THE HORDES OF GIANT MONSTERS AND NAMELESS LACKIES TO EXPLODE DUE TO THE OVERDOSE OF 80'S!!!!!  YEAH!

Uh.  Nevermind, that's a bit much.

I personally believe that ANYTHING done by Roger Corman is fair game for Rifftrax!  Everyone says Ed Wood is the worst director of all time.  I think that the title should actually have gone to Corman....but, then again, he made a LOT of movies.  He made "The Little Shop of Horrors" in only 2 days AND his movies had STARS!!  Well...okay...some weren't "stars" when they appeared in one of his movies, but many are now household names.

Plus, you can get lots of his stuff on DVD -- http://video.movies.go.com/rogercorman/ (http://video.movies.go.com/rogercorman/) -- and I'm sure even more will be released.  My husband was tickled pink when I found "The St. Valentine's Day Massacre" and "Von Richtofen and Brown" on DVD for him!

Yeah, that's an odd choice.  It's an amazing movie, but also it's about murder and child abuse.  Not funny.  Might need a Proof-of-Concept for them to do that one.

Apparently in this one high school, of all the high schools in the world, the drama fairies are celebrated members of society instead of the freaky outcasts they are in the real world. There isn't enough ritalyn in the WORLD to make any teenager behave in this manner. As if the last two Pirates movies weren't reason enough, I'm making a special slot for High School Musical as reasons to destroy Disney now before it becomes self-aware and takes control of our nuclear arsenal. :speechless: The horror.

There isn't enough ritalyn in the WORLD to make any teenager behave in this manner. As if the last two Pirates movies weren't reason enough, I'm making a special slot for High School Musical as reasons to destroy Disney now before it becomes self-aware and takes control of our nuclear arsenal. :speechless: The horror. The horror.
It needs to be done. Ever since its popularity took off, it has had it coming. Please, Mike, Bill, Kevin. We need to put this movie in its place!

That's the only way I'd watch that drivel, if it was riffed.  Other wise my remote avoids the Disney channel like the plague.

1. Cloverfield
I've been thinking this through. Cloverfield seems like a perfect target -- it's a novel idea, it's full of 20 year old doofuses in life-or-death situations, and it's a kaiju movie. The only thing is, it doesn't look very riffable. It doesn't have traditional "movie moments" and it's very heavily narrated the entire time already.

It would certainly be a challenge, and I'd be interested in seeing it done, if nothing else, for this fact alone.

The book was interesting and I had always wanted to see it made into a QUALITY movie.  You'd think that they could have pulled it off but unfortunately not even Sir Ben Kingsley could save this steaming pile.  The CGI was some of the worst I've ever seen, they made a simple plot unbearable to watch unfold and the acting was terrible.

To take a spin on the caption after the title on this poster:

"Some movies should never be made...unless they're to be riffed."

Post by: Vidken on April 13, 2008, 04:29:52 PM
1. Alien and/or Aliens
MST3K referenced this movie a few times in riffs, and there was a series of skits where Tom was facehugged. These movies have so got to be on the crew's mind. :D

2. Jaws
Giving voice to the shark would be great.

3. Close Encounters with the Third Kind
Riffs giving voice to the lights, the characters acting insane for half the movie has a lot of potential as well.

4. 28 Days and/or 28 Weeks
These movies have so many quiet spots with silly situations. Frothing, angry insane people sprinting around everywhere..

5. Godzilla (1998)
It's just BAD.

6. The Two Towers and/or Return of the King
The LOTR rifftrax is still my favorite, these movies seem to provide way too much material to work with than what can be exploited in one run.

7. Polar Express
Insane and ridiculous the whole way through.

8. E.T.
Lots of quiet points, giving voice to E.T. would be pretty funny.

9. Terminator 1 and/or 2.
Giving voice to the T-1000 would again be pretty funny. I loved the Arnold impressions in the Terminator 3 rifftrax. Terminator 1 would be pretty neat, the "self eye surgery" scene has potential.

10. Waterworld.
Yeah.

My crazy suggestion is Stalker (1979). It's long, dark, mostly quiet and really creepy, but not something very many people have in their dvd collections.
Title: Re: List the top 10 films you'd want riffed
Post by: Amethyst on April 14, 2008, 12:45:57 AM
1. Conan the Destroyer

Not that the original Conan movie wouldn't be rifftaculous, but this one doubles the cheese, throws in egregious comic relief dialogue and ends with the heroes fighting a giant rubber suit. And a grunting Arnold Schwarzeneggar  is always fun to watch.

2. 7th Voyage of Sinbad

Because not every film riffed by Rifftrax has to be made in the last decade or so.  This 1950's era fantasy film combines the awesomeness of Ray Harryhausen's monsters, lots of color, and some wonderfully stilted, and eminently riffable dialogue. 

3. Dungeons and Dragons

Annoying comic relief? Check. Bad CG? Check. Scenery-ingesting villain played by Jeremy Irons? Check.  Huge, hulking henchman with bright blue lips? Che--wait.  What?


4. Street Fighter: The Movie

Yes folks. We need to see Raul Julia embarrassing himself for a paycheck again.  And JC Van Damme is sure to be an abundant source of unintentional, thick-accented comedy.

5. The Sword and the Sorceror

The weapon the hero wields by itself is worth a laugh. (You'll just have to see how ridiculous it is for yourself..) Then there's the gratuitous fanservice and the ham-handed crucifixion scene that even Jesus himself would laugh at.

6. The Iron Warrior   

(Also known as "Ator 3" ) Starring Miles and Miles O ' Keefe in a surreal, incomprehensible story about a girlishly dressed warrior pitted against his evil twin by a witch who can best be described as "Estelle Winwood's Evil Cousin". The first Ator film could also use a good riffing, (even though we saw spoilerific  flashbacks of most of the movie in "The Cave Dwellers")

7. Krull

Another "hero beats the bad guys with a ludicrously over-the-top magical weapon" movie. Also there's a villain who lives in a giant castle made of taffy and futuristic stormtroopers who look like they accidentally wandered out of the set of the old Battlestar Galactica TV series...

8. Cutthroat Island.

I would just love to see how Mike & Co. handle the scene where Julia Roberts leaps from a carriage, into a window, runs through the building and then leaps out of the opposite window back onto the carriage, which was apparently traveling at .0003 miles an hour.  There's some painfully cheesy dialogue to be had as well.

9. Zardoz

Sean Connery in a diaper. And a wedding dress. 0_o Giant floating, talking heads that spit guns! Viewers brains explode! It's the future!

 10. Tron

David Warner gets to play another dual role--both villains this time. (Fortunately, he isn't required to wear a ridiculous costu--oh wait. He is... Well.. at least it isn't made of feathers.

Honorable mentions: Legend, Dune, Ghost in the Shell (if they can stomach anime), and the grand champion of all bad movies, "Turkish Star Wars". (The subtitled by chimp version, of course....)

I just have one request for a Rifftrax.  Sorry if it violates the ten rule.
In honor of Charleton Heston, I think the Planet of the Apes would make for a great Rifftrax.  I love that movie, but it certainly would lend itself well to being poked fun at.  In the words of that one annoying guest lawyer on Boston Legal, I think it would be a "Hoot".

Oh, and for the bonus laughs, I think it would be even better if "Bobo" would be one of the Riffers.

I'll agree Planet of the Apes would be a good target, but don't get your hopes up about your guest riffer.  Maybe Kevin could slip in some Bobo-sounding lines, but certain trademark holders might be upset by such an unauthorized use of a character.

My Top Ten:
1. Da Vinci Code - inaccurate, full of holes, and easily riffed
2, 3, 4. Star Wars (Original Trilogy) - ugh.  cinematic disaster.  Preferably the very originals for the crappy fx, but the CG'ed versions work too, especially for editing out old Vader
5. Bloodrayne - the guy from Species sounded like he read the script a few minutes before each scene. 
6. Catwoman - I can't watch this movie.  No one can make me, other than Mike, Kevin, and Bill
7. Ballistic: Ecks vs. Sever - never interested in watching it.  Perhaps Rifftrax can save it.
8. Gigli
9. The Golden Compass
10. The Island (2005)

Perhaps sometime later: Solaris, Waterworld, Wing Commander, War of the Worlds (Tom Cruise version), ET: The Extra-Terrestrial, Twister, Jurassic Park 2/3, Minority Report, Footloose.

Not really, saw El Topo at a festival and although I think I enjoyed it I don't ever imagine a situation where I'd watch it again.  Didn't pick it for the same reason I replaced 'Left Behind' with 'The Gate' and why I assume you said Potc would never be done, although I would find it hilarious and Kevin especially would be awesome we all know Mike's beliefs and seem sure he wouldn't do something like that.

Ok it has been a while since my list, and about 4 or so were riffed, so I'm going to revise it and remove some and add some:

(in no particular order)
1. The Island - Michael Bay does Clonus! Need I say more
2. Godzilla - Matthew Broderick version.
3. Planet of the Apes - The new one not the classic. A poo-fling-a-palooza-extravaganza of a riff.
4. Armageddon - do I really need to say anything?
5. The Mist - I need a reason to pick this up.
6. Hulk - long dull movie needs to be spiced up with a riff
7. Jaws: The Revenge - This cine-turd needs to be riffed.
8. The ring - We got the Grudge, now we need the Ring
9. More LOTR films.. Also the Last Matrix film.
10. War of the Worlds - Tom Cruise edition

Others I'd Like to see:
- League of Extraordinary Gentlemen
- Wild Wild West
- The Warriors (Riiiiiiiiffffffeeeeerrs.. come out and plaaaaayyyaaayy)
- King Kong Remake
- Face Off
- The Village
- Waterworld (a movie this bad deserves it)

1. Uwe Boll's House of the Dead
#35 on the imdb's worst film of all time list. A cinematic train wreck that is just begging for it to happen. With Clint Howard, the guy from Das Boot, Conquistador Zombies, and stock footage straight out of a video game, how can you go wrong?
Really, any Uwe Boll film would be equally applicable for a nomination.

2. Cool As Ice
Vanilla Ice acting. Need I say more?

3. Rat Pfink a Boo Boo
Forty minutes into a zero budget straight-faced crime drama, the star of the movie steps into the closet with a previously minor character and they emerge costumed as "Rat Pfink" and "Boo Boo", superhero rockstars who sing, fight crime, do battle with a gorilla, and have a beach party. Truly a cult classic for the ages.

4. Battlestar Galactica "Crossroads - Part 1 & 2"
Heroes & Lost got riffed, so there is a tv precedent. I do love the show, but with a bunch of guys in space brainwashed by a Bob Dylan song, it seems like the guys could have some fun with it.

5. MVP - Most Valuable Primate
Monkeys playing sports. Seems like worthy fodder.

6. Dune - Unrated Extended Version
A three hour plus pretentious sci fi mess that's about as interesting as a fictitious history lesson.

7. Blacula
He's black. He's beautiful. He's Blacula. 'nuff said.

8. Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Movie
With guest Riffers Kevin Murphy & Trace Beaulieu... For the sheer bizarreness of a riff on a riff, that seems like potential comedy gold.

9. Citizen Kane
The greatest film ever made. Seems prime for the riifftrax crew to knock it down off its high horse.

10. Jesus Christ Vampire Hunter
Jesus + El Santo + a lesbian bounty hunter vs the undead.

Honorable mentions:
Armageddon
Gigli
Godzilla (US Version)
Street Fighter (Van Damme version)
Masters of the Universe (Dolph Lungren)
Blair Witch Project
2 Fast 2 Furious
Dukes of Hazard
Death Proof
Deep Blue Sea
Hulk (the Eric Bana one)
2001: A Space Odyssey


Another idea that I had was for the guys to release a riff for a film still in theaters. Something you could put on your ipod and listen to while watching a theatrical film.

2nd worst of the 10 films
4:  The Time Machine (The 2002 remake)
3:  Kill Bill vol. 1
I liked this movie, but i'd like to see it riffed too
2:  Virus

1: Venomus
Also a bad straight to DVD feature

Now there are a ton of crappy films out there, so I will take a crack at it (in no specific order):

League of Extraordinary Gentlemen - Get Alan Moore to riff on this, that would be gold.  But a movie so bad the it literally made the source material run and hide.

Wild Wild West - What easily could have been a decent flick just ended up as a terrible buddy comedy based on a TV show.

Waterworld - A movie so bad, that even people who weren't funny (like Letterman and Leno at that time) were getting huge laughs making fun of it.

The Avengers - Wow, what can be said that hasn't been said already.  An excellent British show, butchered by Hollywood and then put into a blender and served as protein shakes to the stars.

THX 1138 - An interesting film by pre-Star Wars George Lucas, but with silent passages galore and animated monkeys, this one was a prime target.

There Will Be Blood - Yes not a crappy film by any means (in fact probably going to go down as one of the best ever), but there are so many of those over the top moments and the fact oil looks like poo...it seemed like a good idea.

Ransom - Given Mel Gibson's latest behavior, this one seemed like a good choice.  Oddly enough I suggested this earlier and I actually did my own riff to the film...although there were a lot of Jew jokes.

Jack - Easily one of the dumbest Robin Williams movies ever made...followed by FFC (Francis Ford Coppola) directing.  Seriously, Robin Williams in leather Airwalks circa 1996?  This one seemed like a no brainer.

Con Air - A good popcorn flick for sure, but with Nic Cage and his lame accent, John Cusack looking for a pay check and John Malkovich being uber creepy (and not on purpose)...add that with Las Vegas and you got your self a totally riffable movie.

KISS Meets The Phantom Of The Park - Having grown up with my uncle being a huge Kiss fan (and my brother and a few cousins), this has got to be the single worst movie idea ever by someone with movie and a yes man.  The acting is terrible, the directing is all over the place (literally!) and the FX are the cheesiest since day time soap operas.  If this movie can't be riffed then none can.

8 Mile - Eminem + Movie about his life + Mekhi Phifer in a deadlock wig = Riffing gold

And finally I second the following films:

Fight Club
Clue
Doom
Bloodrayne (Or for that matter any Uwe Boll film)
The Island
Godzilla (1998)
Planet Of The Apes (That Tim Burton abortion)
Cool As Ice
Street Fighter
Snakes On A Plane
Texas Chainsaw (Original)
Master of The Universe
Flash Gordon
Any movie about dancing
Stand and Deliver (Although South Park did that)

Thanks for reading.

10:   Alexander (Director's Cut):  I picked up this "faster-paced" sleeping pill from the bargain bin, and now I need a reason to not chuck it in the rubbish bin.

9:  Napolean Dynamite:  My father thinks this is the dumbest movie ever made.  I disagree.  Either way, I think a RiffTrax  on this film would be great.

8,7:  Tomb Raider and Tomb Raider II:  The only way I could justify buying these films was by getting the German versions so  that I could watch the German dub for "listening practice."  Having a RiffTrax to listen to would give me another good  reason to watch these movies again.

6,5,4:  Resident Evil, Resident Evil Apocalypse, Resident Evil Extinction:  Whether people loved or hated these movies, I think there's plenty for RiffTrax to work with.

3,2,1:  Evil Dead, Evil Dead II, and Army of Darkness:  What could be more fun than watching Bruce Campbell scream like an idiot?  How about riffing on Bruce Campbell while he screams like an idiot?  In fact, he might even make a great guest riffer,  as he's great at mocking his own performances in the film commentaries.

Had to add two more movies:

3 Ninjas: High Noon at Mega Mountain
Suburban Commando

These two are Hulk Hogan movies, they are so bad it makes Batman & Robin look like Citizen Kane.

Good call with Suburban Commando.  The Undertaker is also in it as one of the villains with the high pitched voice that says "you're a dead man Ramsey!".  That movie was fun for me to watch as a kid but now, it's profoundly dumb.

Totally forgot about that one!  Yup these would be good choices.

There is one other god awful movie with a wrestler...can't recall the name of it though (and it is none of the recent WWE ones).

Oh just remembered, Ready to Rumble!

Vanilla Ice acting. Need I say more?

He was actually pretty good in The New Guy.

The movie isn't all that great, but these scenes are funny. Rob's cameo is preceded by Eliza Dushku in a bikini. :)

Here's a list of Top Ten movies that I haven't seen (in all cases actively avoided) - could even a Riff save them?
(in reverse alphabetical order)

Xanadu
Next of Kin
Leonard Part 6
Kazaam
It's Pat
Gigli
Doogal
Daddy Day Camp
Cool as Ice
Chairman of the Board

Still working on a Top Ten Riff list. Halfway there - so far I have:

Howard the Duck - the only movie I have ever walked out of
Jumper - Samuel L with a dye job? Anakin-esque romance? Transporting? It's got it all!
Air Force One - Mike could just say "Get off my plane" for two hours.
The Two Towers and ROTK - Finish what you start. (And FOTR is my favorite Riff.)
Die Hard - now that they do good movies too (Raiders, Jurassic Park, Glitter...(I kid, I kid....))

New to boards. Here's my Top Ten I would pay to see riffed:

1) Ever After
2) Streets of Fire (Michael Pare and Wilem DeFoe (in a garbage bag))
3) A Fistfull of Dollars
4) Cool World (Brad Pitt cartoon)
5) Holes
6) Phantasm
7) Crimson Tide
8  The Lord of the Rings -any of the cartoon 70's version)
9) Signs or The Village or The Six Sense
10) Free Jack (Emilio Estevez, Mick Jagger, Anthony Hopkins)

Numbers 4, 6, 8, and 10 are to get revenge of actually paying to see those films in the theater.

1) Mac and Me....you know, that E.T rip off made by our friends the McDonalds corporation. Please....the dance scene in the McDonalds is too classic.
2) Labyrinth. I already own 3 DVDs of this (different versions)...I'd buy Rifftrax 4th!
3) Pride and Prejudice (the one with Keira Knightly) being a girl, I love this movie, but at the same time I had fun myself riffing it the first time I saw it
4) the Rankin Bass version of the Hobbit.....the greeeaaaatest adventure is what lieeees ahead (as the person above stated)
5) the Breakfast Club. Already an awesome movie. Now it needs an awesome commentary (I mean, come on...)
6) WarGames
7) the Point! Nelsson would be proud, I promise!
8) Jumper...only if they made sure to point out Morning Musume in the Japanese scenes. Okay, they don't know who they are either.
9) the Sound of Music
10)Resident Evil

Let's see there has to be more I can add to the list

Last Action Hero - Holy hell is this a dumb movie.  It was dumb when I saw it in the theaters years ago and it is is dumber in full screen on HBO.
Adventures In Babysitting - Hmmm, teenager posing as her mother and working in the corporate world and not getting sexual harassed...hmmm indeed.
Juno - I saw this one, loved it, saw it again and really started to get the gears going for a riff.  This one takes itself a little too seriously.
True Lies - A personal favorite action flick, but is anyone buying the fact Arnold is named Harry Tasker with that thick accent?

Nope, in payroll actually.  But I have come to find if I open a spreadsheet with a lot of data the boss will walk past me and say "Good Work McConnell".  That is always nice, especially when he says my name right.

I should also add I am only making the list based on what people actually posted.  There are a few of these "any bad Uwe Bowl" or "any bad musicals".  If it specific I will add/count it.

Well good luck compiling them all, it will be an arduous task, I'm sure.

Not as hard as it sounds...but it will be time consuming.  I am just basically doing it page by page (3 done so far...damn conference call).  It may take me more than this week though...

In the end though it might be helpful...it is a great way to gauge what people are looking for.  That can be posted at the top in poll form if needed.  But I think at some point the thread should be closed for two reasons, 1. So it can be tallied and 2. So the tallies don't get thrown off by people adding stuff in while it is being counted.  Now of course one could say that every film can be riffed, although true that wasn't the intention here.  Everyone will have a different list, but if a master list is started, then we (all of us collectively) can keep score and possibly submit it to the guys.  That was my thinking for the count.

If anyone wants to assist, by all means send me a private message. 

EDIT - Actually now that I re-read my post, it might be a good idea to close this thread down temporarily (and not start others) for about a week or two so I (and others) can tally these results.

I think it's a great idea to tally people's list... there are obviously many films that make it into multiple people's lists and thus shows that there might be more overall demand for certain films.

Cheers to your efforts!

In no particular order....

Die Hard
Twister
The Day After Tomorrow
Robocop
Total Recall
Starship Troopers
Sin City
The Road Warrior
Contact

Some of these movies are really some of my favorite, but .... those seem to end up as some great Rifftrax... I.e. fellowship of the ring

Writing this as a fleeting thought, so i'm sure my pov will change and develop

twister and Day after tomorrow really only ones i think are total crap, but others will be really funny i think

X Men 3 (I know, we can skip #2  its ok)

I'm gonna suggest "The Monster Squad".  An '80's movie that was just re-released on DVD for it's 20th anniversary.  I loved this movie as a kid since I'm big into monsters, especially Universal's which is who they take them from, but this movie is so damn corny that it must be riffed.  I mean they talk about the Wolfman having NARDS for christ's sake!

No particular order, and blanket reason for all--simply embrace the pain (those with higher pain quotient marked with :speechless:):

Waterworld
Star Trek Nemesis :speechless:
Star Trek Insurrection
Lost in Space :speechless: (this one broke in the projector with five minutes to go, and we left without wanting to suffer any more in a numb state)
Cyborg :speechless:
any Robocop
Outbreak
Hook
Star Trek the Motion Picture
Star Trek the Search for Spock
Dune (1984) :speechless: (I actually walked out on this one.)
Starship Troopers
any Aliens
Beastmaster
any 007 Bond film
any Conan the Barbarian and related ilk, ie Red Sonja :speechless:
any Highlander
Fortress (1993)
either War of the Worlds (but I refuse to watch Tom Cruise, except in Austin Powers where I fast forward)
Red Dawn (I was on the base they "invaded" for practice--bunch of stinking liars!!!) :speechless:
any Jaws
any Jurassic Park
any Mad Max
Twister :speechless: (everyone involved deserves to be punished)

10) Poltergeist
9) Don't Look Now (I would LOVE to hear what the guys would say about the ending)
8) Jeepers Creepers (The first movie I actually asked for my money back after seeing)
7) Buffy the Vampire Slayer (The movie of course)
6) Die Hard (Good movie, but I think it would make a great riff)
5) Gone with the Wind
4) Psycho
3) Whatever Happened to Baby Jane
2) Glen or Glenda
1) Jail bait (Edward D. Wood Jr. production, not the 100's of pornos with the same name, although Ed might have directed some of those too)

I've been hoping for this one myself for a LOOOOOOOOONG time.  It's basically, next to "Maximum Overdrive", the perfect movie to riff and were made specifically for this reason.

They def should considering that most of the movies they did during the MST3K years were all from the 70's or earlier.  The 80's were such a cesspool for movies.

Post by: almightyspaz on May 28, 2008, 10:10:07 AM
Okay here is my list of films I want riffed:

10. Fight Club - 'Hey its Bob with Bitch Tits' Enough said.
9. Pirates of the Caribbean - "why is the rum gone?" "Because they had to give Keira Knightly something to do. Burning booze seemed like fun."
8. Harry Potter and the chamber of Secrets - "Indiana Jones would so be crying if he saw that snake."
7. Planet Terror - C'mon, who doesn't want to make fun of Rose McGowen.
6. Baz Lurman's version of Romeo and Juliet - It would be like Shakepeare riff, part two (referencing Hamlet from the MST3K)
5. Carrie - "I learned from this movie that when a girl starts her period, run!"
4. Sin City - Seizure inducing funness.
3. Blade Runner - "Oh look its Harrison Ford playing another action hero"
2. Men In Black - "A talking dog, are you sure this isn't Dr. Dolittle with aliens?"
1. Supernatural - okay, I know Supernatural is a tv show but I would love to hear these guys riff on the first episode of the show.

I think Romeo and Juliet could have potential, some very odd choices in there though.  Planet Terror's already an intentional farce.

I know I’m not the only one out there who is thrilled that Rifftrax Presents is doing some older films.  So this is my wish list of some older films for Rifftrax Presents (in no particular order):

1. Any of the M. Night Shyamalan movies: Signs, The Village, Sixth Sense, Lady in the Water or Unbreakable would be amazing.
2. League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. 
3. Die Hard, one of my favorite movies
4. Dungeons & Dragons, if you haven’t seen this it’s one of the most riff worthy films of all time. 
5. Sleepy Hollow
6. Stargate
7. Seven
8. Chronicles of Riddick
9. Any of the Blade movies
10. Silence of the Lambs, an amazing film but between Jodi Fosters terrible accent and Buffalo Bill’s… eccentricities I really think this could be riffing of epic proportions.   
Title: Re: List the top 10 films you'd want riffed
Post by: bobertson on June 02, 2008, 06:42:06 PM
10. Apollo 13
It takes itself so seriously, it deserves to be taken down a notch.

9. Mars Attacks!
Yes, it's intentionally funny, but I think it would make a great rifftrax.

8. Troy
Troy is to The Illiad as 300 is to Herodotus: highly inaccurate. Behold, the Sword of Troy!

7. Transformers
Pure eye candy.

6. Matrix Revolutions
This one should get done. It's even more ridiculous than the first two.

5. Labyrinth
David Bowie in a codpiece. 'Nuff said.

4. Doom
Teleporter to Mars. Absurd "scientific" plot involving the 24th chromosome. The Rock. What more could you want?

3. Snakes on a Plane
There are so many jokes you could make about this movie.

2. The Fast and the Furious
This movie and any of its sequels would be amazing. I genuinely love the first one, but I still think it deserves to get made fun of.

1. Super Mario Brothers: The Movie
John Leguizamo. Dennis Hopper. That guy from Who Framed Roger Rabbit? AND DINOSAURS!!!

Title: Re: List the top 10 films you'd want riffed

Post by: MontyServo on June 02, 2008, 07:12:40 PM
Seeing this thread pop up made me go back and find what my list was:

Just off the top of my head:

10: Airport
9: Airport 1975
8: Airport 1977
7: The Concord - Airport 1979 (all 4 available in a super cheap 4-pack on DVD!)
6: High School Musical
5: Chronicles Of Narnia
4: My Super Ex Girlfriend
3: Star Trek Generations
2: Pretty In Pink
1: Pilot episode of the 70's TV show, Emergency

Only one has turned up so far.  My new Top 10 would be:

1. Billy Jack
2. High School Musical
3. Chronicles Of Narnia LWW
4. Pretty In Pink
5. Emergency (Pilot episode)
6. My Super Ex Girlfriend
7. Any of the Airport movies
8. Showgirls
9. E.T.
10. The Care Bears Movie

Top 10?...I don't know how off kilter you guys would go, but here's what I would pick:

1. Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo--it's dance fighting!
2. Nothing But Trouble--nothing but badness.
3. The Legend of Billie Jean--one of my favorites, but sooooooooo worthy of riffing.
4. Dawn of the Dead (the original George A. Romero)--thousands of zombies wondering through a mall? priceless.
5. The Ewok Adventure--why not?
6. Supergirl--so bad, so cheesy and it stars that Legend of Billie Jean chick!
7. Xanadu--why not?
8. The Warriors--probably too heavy, but it would be a good one.
9. Slapshot--chuckle, chuckle!
10. Soapdish--another favorite I have to watch everytime I see it on cable, terrific RiffTrax material.

Of the ones on that list I've seen I agree, with the exception of Soapdish.  Usual reason, why spoof a spoof?  But some good stuff.  I mean, really you could say Supergirl was a spoof too, but it was just so unbelievably awful at being a superhero story, spoof, or a movie in any right that it deserves a good thrashing.

Here is my current, revised list. I keep adding and subtracting based on amount of suckitude. I've been watching way too much TV lately.

Hellboy (Oh, crap. Forgot the damn plot...)
League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (The league ish asshembled. Yesh.)
Van Helsing (Dracula teams up with Wolfman and Igor to use Frankensteins monster to make flying bat babies... riiiight...)
National Treasure (Ben Franklin kept his best stash in a secret corncob pipe.)
Sleepy Hollow (I'm already dozing)
Alone in the Dark (Tara Reid cast as a scientist. Yeah, that'll fly.)
Paycheck (We have clues to the future... but apparently, nothing else.)
Jurassic Park 3 ("Did you hear that? Run, it's a dinosaur! We're safe. Did you hear that? Run, there's a dinosaur! We're safe. Did you hear that?" Honestly, it's practically a drinking game.)
Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life (Like Indiana Jones, but jiggly)
The Mummy/The Mummy Returns (It is a Brendan Fraser movie. 'Nuff said.)

Other suggestions:
Spawn (Yeah, we are actually in Hell now)
Robocop 3 (Halt! Seriously, stop! Please!)
Hulk (The not-so-jolly green giant)
Ghost Rider (Nicholas Cage stars as a flaming idiot.)

Not that it matters (and I think Steven Sommers and/or Brendan Fraser would be happy to co-riff) I find "nuff said" on par with "epic fail" as a substitute for a point of view.

Hells yeah bro. "Tombstone" would be  an excellent choice.  May I also suggest "The Quick and the Dead"....Sharon Stone, Leonardo DiCapriCock, and  Gene Hackman in a terrible Western.  It had potential, but failed.

Therefore:

Riff Away!

Highlander - I giggle every time I hear Christopher Lambert talk (see also Jean Claude Van Damme)
Red Dawn - Swayze!
Marked for Death - any Seagal movie would do, but this one is particularly laughable
St
