Title: QuipTracks: GATTACA - Now Available!
Post by: Asbestos Bill on June 08, 2010, 01:27:29 PM
Buy it here (http://quiptracks.com/zencart/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1&products_id=21)

The setting is a bleak future-fifties where there is no robot Fonzie (or even a roomba Potsie) and dress codes require at least a three piece suit for all activites from mowing the lawn to space travel. In this frightening dystopia the one secret to success is in your jeans, er, that should be genes. I must have been thinking of Pornattaca.

So any way, this one guy borrows a ladder and apparently forgets to return it, so he has to swim laps with his brother and work at Gattaca, the most prestigious pun-based space-travel organisation the retro-future has to offer, with Quinton McHale.  On top of that Mr. Monk makes him wear erector sets on his legs until he can't pee on his own and he has to hire a guy to do it for him. It all leads to this exciting scene where...wait, Pornattaca again.  Gattaca just leads up to more swimming. Except that the professional pee man, who's like a cross between Sky Captain and a bicycle, ends up on the wrong end of the George Foreman grill of the future--but that's not as exciting as it sounds.

Ok, honestly, we can't really say this one is a turkey. But the pacing is slower than traffic in a Furr's cafeteria parking lot, so we decided to take a shot at it.  There is no denying, at any rate, that it's a heck of a lot funnier with a QuipTrack. So download it now!

It's easily the best movie we've riffed (although I'm a much bigger fan of Jurassic Park, personally). We don't cut it any slack, but it's not like Van Helsing or Godzilla, where we were screaming for it to end. ;D

In case anyone is hesitant to watch the riff due to their love of the movie, you should know that both of the outsiders at our test screening loved both the movie and the riff. And one of them had never even seen it before.

Oh I have no doubt the riff will be hilarious. They always are. And if you can make the tediousness of The Forgotten and whole stretches of HULK watchable, that is saying something.

Sorry guys. (For this bump and for the wait in general) I just need to come up with one more joke to replace a bit that wasn't as funny as we originally thought. Then, of course, I have to export, zip and upload...

I should admit that I have been obsessively playing Portal recently when I should have been working. Going for the achievements you see.... heh heh gulp.

One bit is holding this up? I'd probably still ROFL if I heard the "unfunny" bit. Perfectionism...
Title: Re: QuipTracks: GATTACA - Coming Friday
Post by: Asbestos Bill on June 11, 2010, 03:05:51 PM
Well the bit was 30 seconds of grunting and panting, and when I was sitting through that during the test screening and no one was laughing I made the decision to axe it. We're going to watch it again sometime and I don't want to go through that again =___=

Anyway, I put a new joke in. It's exporting.

Too bad it's cut off by the planet. I do like the idea that comedy in their genes.

That's bizarre, I don't remember saying that! Is somebody putting words in my mouth?.... anyways, not to say it won't be true. This is one of the movies I have on my shelf, so I'll be working on a cover for this one soon.

Seconded! For the longest time Van Helsing was number 1 for me, but this one is great!

Like a band-aid brother, like a band aid.

Ahahaha! Since only Cody and I thought that joke was funny, I'm very glad you mentioned it. In the words of Pinto Vortando, "There is great joy in the heart of Pinto Vortando" ... That didn't quite work...

Post by: Bob on June 20, 2010, 01:17:36 PM
Another top notch effort guys...... really funny and I would rank this right up there with your best.

The movie itself is not bad, just slow.    Almost like the actors and directors had doggie downers before filming.   I must admit, the purpose of the Gattaca space program was lost on me.    And how the detective did not even recognize his own brother, since his only disguise was greasing his hair, is beyond me.

doggie downers

I used to play bass guitar for them.

After seeing this I think you'd do great things with Equilibrium. Just putting that out there.
