Title: Release the Favorite Lines!
Post by: Compound on October 22, 2010, 04:07:56 PM

Funniest riff that I've heard in a while.

Line: Draco!
Riff: Where's the plunger?! It's an emergency!

Line: Zeus? (After Acrisius' Queen discovers who she slept with)
Riff: That'll be fifty bucks.

Dude... Uh... beware the Ides of... Wait, what?

Legend of Zelda, the Ocarina of Suck!

Verily it is the wedgie of the gods!

Aw! He killed her before she could get it!

The main character is content with his family.  That's a good omen, right?

"Somethings's wrong."
Bill: Your family has 3 different accents.

Ralph Fiennes new thing: act every role as if you've just been punched in the throat.

"You do not tell me where I belong?"
Mike: Or the correct way to pronounce 'Ralph'.

Mike: At least he got to Argos in time for their annual rhubarb festival.
Kevin: Ooh.  Lots of rhubarb related fun activities?
Mike: A bit, but mostly slave trading.

"Andromeda..."
Mike: You seem strained.

NO ID NO ALCOHOL!

"When I release the Kraken, Argos will be swept from the Earth, and all of you with it."
Mike: Don't leave town or anything.  That would be cheating.

"Draco!"
Mike: Where did you put the plunger?  It's an emergency!!

Ah.  Wiseau TV throw.

This movie is 90% releasing things.

Our princess is in another SHUT THE HELL UP.

It's like hearing Dumbledore talk to The Dark Knight.

The Tristar logo tryouts.

You ever notice how white pegasuses be all like "Uh excuse me, I just sprung from the head of Medusa." but black pegasuses be all like "Dayam, these snakey bitches heads just got they heads lopped off!"

Stupid Io.  If they allowed proper nouns your name would be worthless in Scrabble.

Wait.  What kind of ruins were in ancient Greece?

The scorpions rant about The Scorpion King.

This is where the extra 5 bucks you paid for the 3D version REALLY pays off.

BEOERCEUS!

I found that hilarious for some reason.

I thought the Chris De Burgh riff was hilarious, because I thought of a similar but much less funny comment when I saw the movie at the theater.  Yeah, I saw it at the theater.  Got a problem with that?

Everyone has hit some good lines, but my favorite was "Scorpion trained under Super Fly Jimmy Snuka".

That wasn't the loudest laugh of the whole riff, but for some reason it stuck with me.

I was really happy to hear the Don't Pay The Ferryman riff.

And now a brief Message from Delta Airlines "We Suck!", Good Night!

from the Sample, "Andromeda" (You seem strained, Doh!)

Do you know what's out there! ( Zombie Pub Crawls!)

We are the gods now! (Weeeeeee are the God's now, my friends!)

You have insulted powers beyond comprehension (I understand)

LLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLiam?

"What is this? [refers to robotic owl from the original film]
"Just leave it" (Put it back in the Mystical Trunk of Pandering)

(It's like hearing Dumbledore talk to the Dark Knight)

(Tommy! "Oh Hai Hades!")

Zeus: "Perseus." ( Aaand great days work Liam, we'll have a PA bring some Caviar to your trailer.)

Stand your ground ( I mean Crap your Pants, wait, we don't have any pants, uh Crap Your Ground!)

It is WRITTEN! (but was in Howard Zinn's book, so it's probably not true)

Who are You?! (Eh, one of the douches from Fleet Foxes)

Mike's song "We're going to the Underworld but first we'll have to..."

The Djinn screaming at everyone (I'VE GOT TO GO TO WORK!, MY FEET HURT!)

You're the best of both (You have the heart of a man, but the taint of a god. Kevin: Wow!)

Great, the Afterlife is pollen. We become Pollen! Terrific!)

My favorite line might also be the dumbest:  "Up is pretty."

"His arm got all 'Requiem For A Dream'-y."

"That's like six different accents in five words!"

"It's like hearing Dumbledore talk to the Dark Knight."

Any and ALL riffs pertaining to Hades!

Mike's song

Also, gotta commend the guys on retro gaming:
"Our princess is in another SHUT THE HELL UP!!!"
"Legend of Zelda: The Ocarina of Suck"
"Thanks, Zangief."
Movie:  "You fall down... you die." / Riff: "Oh, like in Donkey Kong."
 :D

I adore any The Room callbacks, too!  "Oh, hai Hades" / "Wiseau TV throw."


I felt there were a couple missed opportunities too.  When the green goo from the scorpion is dumped on the guy, I was really expecting a Nickelodeon reference.  Instead, "Cheddar sauce"?   :-\  I loved "Gooble gobble gooble gobble"... just slightly better tho:  "What if Zeus was one of us?"


EDIT:  Just looked up a few references I didn't get (like Arthur Brown... because I'm young).  Can't believe I didn't pick up on Kitty Sanchez.  I should be ashamed of myself.  The one (embarrassed-to-admit) reference I didn't get was the Ice Cube one(s).  I know it's a reference to "Anaconda", but..... uh, what question did he have?

I believe they're referring to "There's snakes out there this big?"

Thanks!  I'm usually up to par with movie quotes and internet memes.  I didn't know Ice Cube was known for saying that.  Then again, I didn't see "Friday" till about a week ago.  In fact, ALL those quotes were off my radar (tho "Where'd ya get it?" / "I stole it" made me laugh).

Being possibly the only youngin' (compared to the guys) to get the Aurthur Brown joke without looking it up, I laughed pretty hard at that one...

Gotta watch again to remember the riffs. I always forget them the first time watching...

EDIT:

"Well, nice Ponzi scheme, Zeus."

"IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII-OOOOOOOOOO!!!! Yes sir!"

"Oh great, Russel Brandt is here."

"Are you sure we're not watching an episode of Ax Cop?" (major win)

Every time they mentioned mending nets.

"We are the Gods now, my frieeeeeeeeennndddssssss."

"Can you tell the queen I want a divorce now that she's ugly?"

"That'll be fifty bucks."

"Zeus told that eagle to crap on the hood of his car."

"Who lit the giant incense candle? It's like the fury of a thousand college dorm rooms - yet we can still smell the pot!"

"Hey, he got a job as a boat carpet at least."

I'm paraphrasing most of these, because I couldn't really work up the interest to pay full attention to this riff (or the terrible, terrible movie it accompanied); I'll have to watch it again sometime. Solid work though.

The underwater funeral home was not a good idea.

They threw Bernie Madoff's soul in.

Wilson!

My armor has the most lens flare therefore I shall decide!

New Voldemort, now with 100 percent more nose.

I THINK I'm in this movie, I dunno...

Liam Neeson: This son knows no love for me.  He's no different than any of the others who have turned their backs on us.
Kevin: I mean how many rapes does a guy have to commit before he gets some respect?

Dip your cheddar biscuit into a bowl of Kraken chowder, thank me later.

Mike's song, and Bill's bit about black vs. white pegasuses, were worth the price of admission based on just those two.

Mike's song was special because it plays to a certain comedy theory I've heard Simpsons writers describe a few times.  Basically you take a joke, and it's kinda funny at first.  Then you keep it up, and it becomes tiresome and unfunny.  But if the joke is just right, and you keep it up still longer, it becomes hilarious.  The guys at The Simpsons said their best illustration of this is in the Cape Fear episode where Sideshow Bob keeps stepping on the rakes.  I thought that Mike's song was a perfect illustration too.

Funny. Jon Stewart taught me that (not personally).

Mike Birbiglia talks about something similar that he learned from David Letterman. First it's funny, then unfunny, then funny again because of the shared experience of it being unfunny.

I loved the scorpion king rant as well as the "hey guys get this, I'm actually a Libra!"

And during the witches scene there was a shot showing a laughing witch with really saggy breasts. Kevin: Make me a cocktail will ya hun?

"Why, it is Scorpius Roto-Scopious, the progenitor of all digital effects."

Funny to me mainly because I found the rotoscoping in Ralph Bashki's Wizards and Lord of the Rings pretty off putting, and I actually researched the technique a little at the time to find out why. There's a point at which animation can be too "realistic" in it's movements and it just looks strange compared to everything else.

Realistic looking certainly wasn't the problem here though.
