Bear with me as I seem to be having some trouble embedding sample videos on the new forum (not sure why that one worked and the others don't)
 
Also,  some of the groups I am less familiar with. So feel free to post additional info on them if you are a fan.

Cinester Theater - IT Part 1

(http://www.meridian.k12.il.us/middle%20school/student_work/scary_movies/it_cover.jpg)
Tim Curry in clown makeup and British demon teeth! Couple that with the production values of a made-for-TV Stephen King adaptation movie. Surefire nightmare fuel! What, that doesn't scare you? Well, how about flashbacks. Tons of 'em! Mwahahaha! Oh, and apparently the density of things relative to water is scary, too.

This movie is most known for: Reminding people who are afraid of clowns WHY they are afraid of clowns. Reminding people who don't like Maine WHY they don't like Maine.

Noted riffs:
"Ew, right on the tick"
"Hold on, I lost my page, I'll find it in a minute and SCARE you!"
You're gonna get a surprise --- "I'll buy you something really nice!"
"Here lies Pennywise. Thoughtlessly killed by Georgie."

About the group: Aaaand we start off the list with a really good one. Cinester Theater has been going for a few years and is one of my personal MUST BUYs. This riff is the first half of IT, the two part TV mini-series. The other half was riffed by Hor-Riff-ic Productions. Despite their tendancies to riff different types of movies, their riffs complement each other well.

Sometimes, terrifying things come in small packages. Not this time. Warwick Davis stars as the most easily puntable killer ever as, the Leprechaun. Yes, sit back with a sack of potatoes and a Guiness to watch centuries of Irish folklore be turned into a "monster of the week" episode of Erie Indiana.

This movie is most known for: On the upside, giving Warwick Davis work. On the downside, in the sequels, giving Warwick Davis really easy work.

Noted riffs:
Burn in Hell, you little green bastard! --- "Ironically, those were Fred Flintstone's last words, too."
"I'm a Pilgrim, dumbass."

About the group: Hor-Riff-ic Productions. Another one of my personal MUST BUY iRiff groups. They have been the most successful in building riffing "personalities" and using them to their fullest potential. They have also made thier name brand by riffing exclusively horror (or horror related) movies. THeir signature is riffing through the entire Friday the 13th series, which they are five movies in so far.

Turns out, Native Americans figured out that whole "ownership of land" thing after all. It just took them a long time. Like, after they were dead. So they decide to haunt only one house out of hundreds built over their sacred burial grounds. Now that I think about it, maybe the creepy clown doll the beevertoothed kid had was really responible for the whole thing. It worked in Ghost House.

This movie is most known for: Wondering whether Steven Spielberg or Toby Hooper directed it. Watching Coach get high and be an irresponsible parent. The short lived sport of Kitchen Slip-n-Slide.

Noted riffs:
The whole "how to fold a house" bit
"Yah. Was her mother a pug?"
Carol-Ann/hitchhiker
Colgate
Optical illusion
'Living on a boat’
The spiritual fire code

(http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/a/a1/Nightmare01.jpg/220px-Nightmare01.jpg)
This movie was part of the slasher flick boom of the 80s. It differentiated itself by having a killer with a truly unique modus operendi, appearance and memorable personality (even at the beginning, before they cheesed him up and it became lame). Supposedly based on a dream that Wes Craven had. Apparently he dreams of killing Johnny Depp in a shower of blood. I know I do.
 
This movie is most known for: The introduction of Johnny Depp. The momorable killing of Johnny Depp. Making knife fingered gloves creepy.

Noted riffs:
"Ah, the raw sexuality drips off the screen like butter. Frozen sticks of butter."
Stations of the greaser.
MIDWEST!!!
Freddy gained fifty pounds and...
Gimme back my mannequin!

About the group: Another staple of iRiffs, Ronin Fox has a long history of quality riffing. They do like to riff horror movies, but unlike Hor-Riff-ic they do not exclusively riff that genre. They have made their name in riffing through the Nightmare on Elm Street series, and are up to part 5.

*sigh*Nothing good ever comes of a Voodoo curse, you ever notice that? Barney (not the dinosaur, but this movie would be a LOT more funny if it was) is a plantation owner with a hot wife. At least UNTIL a voodoo woman curses him and turns him into a monkey. How has this movie never been remade with Rob Schneider?

This movie is most known for: Being the real inpiration for "You'll never make a monkey out of me! Oh my God, I was wrong. It was Earth all along! You finally made a monkey (Yes you finally made a monkey) Yes you finally made a monkey out of meeeee!"

Noted riffs:
Unfound. Fans, post some, and I will put them here.
 
About the group: I am unfamiliar with Incognito Cinama Warriors myself, but they predate iRiffs by a year or two. And they seem to be one of the only groups that does a true MST3K type experience, with characters, robot puppets, silhouettes, a premis and everything. They also specialize in obscure movies (usually public domain it seems), and they sell DVDs that they ship in the mail. No syncing neccessary!

Available on Netflix Instant? Unnecessary, it is a DVD.

When planets are outlawed, only outlaws will have planets. Or...something. What, get off my back, it's a silly Buck Rogers seriel, for Gods sakes! Made in 1939 (edited into one movie in 1953) before they knew cardboard wouldn't withstand the harshness of outer space.

This movie is most known for: Starring a guy named Crabbe. Yes, that is the actor's name.

Noted riffs:
"Meta-narrative by God."
"Hmm. Depression era Hoth."
 
Available on Netflix Instant? Unnecessary, it is VOD.

About the group: Josh Way riffs in Fun With Flicks, one of the early iRiff groups. He most often does shorts, but this Buck Rogers seriel is an exception.

Say, didn't know this one made the list.  Bringing on a memory flood.  Riffing a movie I liked this much was a challenge, but Freddy just gives so much for a riffer to work with.  One of my favorite memories, as embarassing as it was, was having to explain to DraCCu who Lionel Richie was so the Dancin on the Celing reference made sense.

When your movie is batshit insane, even by 80s fantasy pics, THAT is saying something! A buff hero with bumbling sidekicks who has to save a princess. Okay, that doesn't sound so crazy. But this has an appearing and dissapearing villain castle lair. And a cool five bladed frisbee thing that looks like it should have ironic "hands off" stickers all over it. Big humanlike bat creatures that dissolve people with their hugs. Yeah, it's a few sandwiches short of a picnic.
 
This movie is most known for: Um...it's fucking KRULL!

Noted riffs:
"The man loves his lime jello!"

Available on Netflix Instant? Yes (http://movies.netflix.com/WiMovie/Krull/60020023?trkid=2361637)
 
About the group: Another group I am unfamiliar with. But it takes some manly fortitude to sit through Krull enough to write riffs, so I will give them that. Not a particularly prolific group (only 3 so far).

Cinester Theater - Nightmare Before Christmas

(http://www.dan-dare.org/FreeFun/Images/CartoonsMoviesTV/NightmareBeforeChristmasPoster1993.jpg)
Probably the main reason Hot Topic is still in business. Also, the easiest way to get into a goth chick's pants.
In a world where holidays are places, and Tim Burton's style was still cool, comes a tale of noel theft (not related to Noel Coward). Halloween town discovers Christmas town and all clay breaks loose! It's a musical, too. With songs about murder (well, planning murder in graphic detail), gambling with people's lives, telling us that 'this is Halloween' in bluntness rivaling the Yor theme. A beloved holiday classic for all ages!
 
This movie is most known for: Being the first fully stop motion theatrical movie. Being directed by Tim Burton, even though it wasn't.

Noted riffs:
It looks like they live in the clubhouse from Earnest Scared Stupid.
NO MURDER!
Dom Deluise?
This town murders everything!
You know the real twist is the elves have bee trying to scare the kids all these years.
Doesn't Santa know Christmas magic or something? Cast Magic Missile at 'em!

Available on Netflix Instant? No.
 
About the riff: A truly great riff by a great group (I feel like I already mentioned this). It is always easier to watch a riff of a movie you already like, and I love this movie! The riff compliments it very well. Cinester is also very good at doing a variety of voices (in characters voices and others). Performance is very important, as I have mentioned before other places. This group (and this riff in particular) is an excellent example of this.

Ice on Mars - The Karate Kid

(http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/a/a9/Karate_kid.jpg/220px-Karate_kid.jpg)
An old man ushers a naive young boy into manhood. Wait, that sounds perverted. Okay, an old man instructs an impressionable young boy in the ways of solving problems with violence. Um...no. A wise old karate instructor gets a boy to do his yardwork for free so...dammit! This is hard!
 
This movie is most known for: This movie, and sneaking into Porky's, helped teach young boys the fine art of waxing off. Showing kids that old people aren't useless. They might teach you how to kick people in the face.

Noted riffs:
I don't know any. Please post some and I will add them here.
 
About the riff: I will have Michael T. Bradley let you in on a little secret:
  This was riffed by Ari Dennis, Scix Maddix, J. Wilford Neville with "The Wheat Farmer," riffed by Scix Maddix & myself
Written by myself, J. Wilford Neville & Scix Maddix; "Wheat Farmer" written by Scix Maddix & myself
This is paradoxically my favorite of the feature lengths we've done, even though I think I'm a better voice actor than riff writer, so it should really be my least favorite. But not being a voice actor freed me up to be a director more, and I think I got some really great performances out of everybody here. Not that everyone isn't just naturally funny, but as head writer there are times that you want things done a certain way, etc. I think the most fun here was doing Jason's synch lines, because they were just so ridiculous, and it was nice to work on a project that took like ... half an hour rather than FOURTEEN TAKES OF 45 MINUTES OF VOYAGER.
Not much else to say about it, except that about 25% in we found out they were remaking Karate Kid, then somewhere near release date we found out Rifftrax were doing KK3, so we were like, HOLY CRAP THIS WILL OUTSELL EVERYTHING EVER!!! Of course it's still one of our weakest sellers.
I agree with one criticism: there should've been less gay Johnny & more dumb Johnny. But seriously, again, this is one of those 'you should've seen THE ORIGINAL script ...' I also think the climactic karate tournament could have been tweaked a bit more, but there was SO MUCH in it the first run through that I cut down a lot ... then I realized that the climax really does tie up like a BILLION loose threads in visual manners, and the viewer's mind has to be free to process both that and the riffs, so I cut down even MORE ... but I fear it's now a little TOO empty. But it's these sort of things that drive you crazy as an editor.

Hosting an L.O.C. is a ton of work, and way more time consuming than you think it's gonna be. Kudos to DG for driving the bus.

So, I've written some reviews in the past that I've posted to the product pages, and I figured I might as well post them here for prospective buyers to check out, if they're so inclined. Unfortunately, I haven't had time to write full reviews for all of the iRiffs I've watched, but I'll post what I have. Some of them are a bit lengthy, so I'll spoiler that shit.

Good job, DG!  Looking forward to many (many, many  ;) ) more iRiff suggestions.  I'm pleased that you decided to do all the ties as 'extras' rather than replacing the next number(s) with them.

I was a tad sad to see that I was the only one voting for IoM's KK, but glad that it made the list, regardless.  If I get a chance before this list finishes, maybe I'll rewatch and write some quotes down to update the listing with.  (And maybe try that with others in my top few if possible.)

The best part of Nightmare on Elm Street....
 
In retrospect there are 2 great parts of the film:
1) JOHN SAXON (see the riff of Nightmare 3 for why this is awesome)
2) Johnny Depp sucked into a bed
 
Also, without this riff, I doubt I would have befriended Ronin, moved to Denver, worked on 3-4 AWESME iriffs, and generally be the super happy person I am today
 
So thank you, Ronin and thank you John Saxon

Vox-O-Rox - Krull

Somebody riffed Krull! That is awesome! I'll have to try that.

I loved that movie as a kid. I even played the arcade game. But then, a few years ago I bought it on DVD, and I was like "this is nowhere near as good as I remembered". For God's sake man, use the Glaive already! Your friends are getting slaughtered!

Music was really good though. And the Slayers were way cooler than Stormtroopers (and better marksmen).

Also, I never realized that was Tim Curry in IT. Then again, I haven't seen that in LONG time.

I'm mostly posting so this will show up in my "New Replies."  So far it's pretty much what I expected.  I figured the first ten would probably just go to Hor-riff-ic followed by the other standards like Cinester Theater.  I didn't make a list because I feel I haven't seen enough iriffs to be fair about it.  Naturally my favorites are Atomic Treatment and that hilarious Mr.B.Natural.

Animation Ripping Theater - Beauty and the Beast
(Total Points: 21    Number of Lists: 1  Highest Ranking: #5 LucasM)
(http://www.rifftrax.com/files/iriffs-posters/ART%20-%20BatB.jpg)
Beastiality and Disney, what a perfect combination. 2D and 3D animation less so, but it was used sparingly and looked cool at the time. But more important than being a PSA on furries, this movie shows young impressionable audiences that it is important to let ANYONE in your home no matter what and no matter what time of night. Otherwise you will be cursed to look like an evil Bobo the bear. Come to think of it, I think this plot reminds me of part of Jack Frost when Ivan insulted the old mushroom man. I think this movie would have benefited greatly from more insane witches and spinning houses.

This movie is most known for: A dissapointing lack of Ron Perlman. Before Edward and Bella, this was the abusive relationship by which all others were judged. Talking animate furniture? Disney, you are ripping off PeeWee's Playhouse?!

Noted riffs:
"I wonder how many times he had to resist the urge to pick it up and say, 'who's the fairest one of all?'?"
(Belle singing: "...quiet village...") --- "It was until YOU started singing!"
(Belle's father starts the wood-chopping machine.) --- "The first automated axe murderer is born!"
" 'Abandon hope all ye who enter here'... can't be all bad!"
("Into the cabinet with your brothers and sisters." ) --- "Wow, Mrs. Potts must be Irish Catholic!"
("I've come to collect your father.") --- "...you're four payments behind."
(The Beast 'dies', then sparks start dropping out of the sky.)--- "Great!  And now skylab starts coming down on them!"
(The Beast is transformed and we first see his face as the prince.) --- "EW!  Looks like Fabio on a three-day bender!"

About the group: Another iRiff group I am unfamiliar with. But to riff a modern classic like this? That takes balls. ARTy balls.

Available on Netflix Instant? No.

Not realizing the benefits of stabbing men's pineal glands, an aging owner of a cosmetics company does the next best thing. She extracts enzyms from the species closestly related to humans: the wasp! Yes, white anglo saxon protestants may look like us, may even sound like us, but they apparently secrete a jelly like substance that can cure aging forever! The only antidote? Acid to the face, baby! Acid to the face.
 
This movie is most known for: Before Catwoman, this was the only evidence that all cosmetics companies are evil. Slightly aging women are all bitter and insane.

Who knew Isaac Asimov could predict future science so accurately that he knew it would actually be Apple products that eventually kill us all.
The 3 Laws of Robotics:
1. Will Smith is awesome, even when in crappy movies.
2. An emotionless robot will be given realistic facial motion.
3. Book adaptations almost always suck, even when in combination with rule #1.

This movie is most known for: Missing the point. Hitting the "uncanny valley" like an abusive redneck.

Noted riffs:
"Liquid Smurf pumped through every room in the house."
 "Now you've got a wet cat, that's even worse than a killer robot!"

About the group: Another classic iRiff group. I have seen several of their riffs (all very good), just not this one. Riff Raff Theater is a group that does exclusively submitted script riffs. Every riff is open to anyone submitting a script, and the best are chosen. They are best known for running the Submission Rifftrax for Batman and Robin, written entirely by the fans, consolidated and organized by Riff Raff Theater, and performed by Mike, Kevin and Bill.

In 1944 a doctor decides there aren't enough monsters in the world. I repeat, 1944, when Nazis threatened the world, this doctor decides he needs to make MORE monsters. What did he get his doctorate in, vending machine repair?! I kid, I kid, vending machine repair is awesome. Acromegaly is not. It's a real disease (most famously for Rondo Hatton), and it's horrible, causing real pain and suffering. I'm pretty sure you can't just inject it like this movie does. But I am also sure you shouldn't make a B-movie monster flick treating a real disorder like science fiction.

This movie is most known for: Inventing the genre "acromeglsploitation" two years before The Brute Man.

You like Star Trek? Yeah! You like getting lost? Sure, who doesn't! You like woman captains so manly you feel kinda uncomfotable checking out her boobs, like she might have a penis tucked way back...okay, best not to think about it. You like Star Trek alien crew members? Sure, now we're talking! How about an alien cook so annoying you wonder "Gee, I miss Welsey Crusher."
 
 
This movie is most known for: Inspiring the creepiest moment in MST3K history, when Mike dresses up as Captain Janeway. *shudder*
                              7 of 9! Hey, she can eight me any time!

Noted riffs:
I don't know any. Please post some and I will add them here.
 
About the riff: I will let Michael T. Bradley fill in the details in his own (non legally binding to me) words.
This was our first outing and, like most of our early stuff, written by me. Riffed by myself and Jason Freston. I'd been working with Jason on a podcast at the time and asked if he'd be interested in doing this. Jason's a bigger Trek fan than me & therefore more personally hurt by Voyager, so he said sure. We ended up recording the first half of this about 9 times, I think. I kept being unhappy with the sound quality & trying different things. Plus about three or four run-throughs and you're talking a LOT of man hours put into this. There's a point almost at the halfway mark where you can see that we got a new mic. At the time I didn't know what I was doing when I was editing, so I think the new mic ended up sounding WORSE than the first half at some points, BUT I was trying my damndest. I'm still really proud that this holds up decently well. It's a little too full, I think, but overall I think it showcases our irreverence.
As a side note, the original intention was to just keep doing Voyager and only Voyager, but "Time and Again" nearly killed me, and when I tried to write the next ep, I just kept rewatching the teaser, and after like five passes my only line was "your hair is stupid" "/cries/" This is when I thought of inviting other groups in to do some episodes, and that worked out amazingly well for a variety of reasons. I think our strongest ep is "Learning Curve," and the strongest guest ep is QuipTracks' "Eye of the Needle." I think it's "Ex Post Facto" where our sexual amorality really starts to shine through. I remember at the time I was like, NO! WE HAVE TO KEEP THE RATING APPROXIMATELY THE SAME AS THE SOURCE MATERIAL! So I was going for TV-PG or so, and I had some line about, like, 'then he beat my face until it was bloody & forced me to orally pleasure him,' and I thought, 'well, since I didn't say blowjob, this is TV-PG.'

Did you know that Coca Cola has sugar in it? Did you know that sugar is white, and was farmed in foriegn countries with virtually no labor laws? You did? Will maybe you don't need to see this film. But for the rest of you, enjoy. The narrator never shuts the hell up. No matter how much you beg and plead.

This movie is most known for: Spreading diabetes and caffeine addiction.

Noted riffs:
"Wait, they put sugar in soda? I've never heard of that. And where do they grow their High Fructose Corn Syrup?"
The natural juice of the cane. --- "Is mixed with the sweat of these guys."

About the riff: This is one of the few Ronin Fox Trax I haven't checked out yet, so I will let him talk about it:
    I came across Pearl of the Orient while clicking randomly through archive.org, hoping I would find a short dumb enough to mock.  My prayers were answered.  I almost passed on it when I watched a few minutes of tribal dancing, but when the narrator kicked in and I realized it was a giant vehicle to pimp Coca-Cola production I knew I had to have it.  While this is the only real short I've done, and one of the very rare occasions when I riff solo, this was for a long time my second biggest seller behind Star Trek.  It was also a bit of an endurance trial for me, as it goes on for twenty minutes and I constantly had to think of new ways to mock the same thing.  In the end, it all comes down to one thing, Coca-Cola is the refreshing drink of highest quality, and thus is your god.

About the riff: It's been a while, so why don't we let Gary Slasher, the resident slasher of Hor-riff-ic Productions fill us in:
     Definitely one of Erin’s favorite tracks and movies.  I was stoked to take on this infamous movie not even realizing how many had never heard of it and it’s, how should we say, PENIS! Oops. The amazing amount of foul language that came out of these kids’ mouths was really something and was great to riff on. And of course the extremely disturbing Aunt/Mom at the beginning was just jaw dropping, so much so I was often left just staring at the screen yelling MEL SMASH!!!

Sean Connery just wanted to wear his red battle panties and bandolier to set one day, so they built a movie around it. We are told repeatedly that the gun is good, and the penis is evil. But there is so much fan service nudity in this flick, I get distracted.

While I didn't include any Just Andrew, I have seen a few of his shorts and he's consistently pretty good quality. I dig the idea of riffing on commercials, so I'll have to check those out at some point.

I, Robot didn't make my final cut, but I've seen it and I definitely enjoyed it. You can't go too wrong with Riff Raff Theater. I do have a few RRT entries on my list and I'm hoping at least a couple make an appearance at some point.

Ladies, remember when your uterus just decided one day it was in a Peckinpaw film? Yeah, it's about that.

This line is hilarious! :D Some males would be afraid to 'go there', but you did!   :clap:

That may be why the riffing itself is so funny: it being a female writer and females making the comments, and the writer is so totally comfortable with her biology, that she can have them say anything they damn well please about things their own bodies do without fear of offense.

I will add here, though, that if one is not comfortable with female biology, chances are this won't be terribly funny to you.  Just a belated heads-up (so to speak).

OK... I rewatched Animation Ripping Theater (or 'ART')'s Beauty and the Beast again tonight, so I've got a few riffs written down for quotes.  I tried to go for a variety: from the 'Disney-meta', to the literary historical, to the absurd, to, well... other kinds of riffs.  Clearly 'ART' has a wide knowledge base to draw from for the riffs.


Film event:  Very early in the film, during the backstory, the Beast is left with the rose and mirror.
RIFF:  "I wonder how many times he had to resist the urge to pick it up and say, 'who's the fairest one of all?'?"

Film event: Belle singing: "...quiet village..."
RIFF: [as an annoyed townsperson] "It was until YOU started singing!"

Film event: Belle's father starts the wood-chopping machine.
RIFF:  "The first automated axe murderer is born!"

Film event: Belle's father arrives at the gate to the Beast's castle.
RIFF: [as Maurice, reading] " 'Abandon hope all ye who enter here'... can't be all bad!"

Film event: Mrs Potts to Chip, "Into the cabinet with your brothers and sisters." (HUGE number of cups there.)
RIFF: "Wow, Mrs. Potts must be Irish Catholic!"

Film event: Asylum operator to Belle, "I've come to collect your father."
RIFF: [as Asylum operator] "...you're four payments behind."

Film event: The Beast 'dies', then sparks start dropping out of the sky.
RIFF: "Great!  And now skylab starts coming down on them!"

Film event: The Beast is transformed and we first see his face as the prince.
RIFF: "EW!  Looks like Fabio on a three-day bender!"


Those were just some of the lines that had me laughing or chuckling out loud again (and this was the third time watching with the riffing).  Hopefully enough sampling for others to consider if they'd give it a try.

YAY! This was the first or second one I worked one with Ronin. The Imelda Marcos/Beatles line was totally mine (and I got to teach Ronin Beatles history, so that's awesome). Because of this short, I have also tried Mexican Coke, made with real cane sugar. In addition, If I ever get sent to the Phillipines for work...well let's just say, I will riff the country like I helped riff this short :)

FYI: Riff co-written by Anais :) (she likes attention)

Film is Pwn - Mega Shark Vs Giant Octopus
(Total Points: 25    Number of Lists: 3  Highest Ranking: #7 Invader Quirk)
(http://www.rifftrax.com/files/iriffs-posters/Megashark_400x6402smaller.gif)
What happens when a movie company actually calls itself the Asylum? It's a MADHOUSE! A MAAADHOOUSE! So in true crazy person fashion, lots of shit gets thrown, and only a little sticks. This sticks. For all of the bad movies they've made, this is a gloriously goofy movie that kinda make it all worth it. And then you watch Monster and want to perform a labotomy on the studio. Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus uses it's few CGI shots like a bludgeon to your funnybone. Over and over and over.

This movie is most known for: A shark biting a jumbojet airplane out of the air! The Irish government coming out and warning people NOT to make "repeated effects shots" a drinking game while watching this movie. Sadly, many still lost their lives.

About the group: Probably the newest iRiff group to make this list. Here is some info on the making of this:
  I started doing research as we started writing.  Tom and I watched the movie repeatedly, alone, with each other, and with friends.  My brother Joseph attended one screening, and as a military buff told us with specifics how woefully inaccurate the film was.  Our friend Brian Alterman (who later joined us in actual riffing) did one session, and provided some of his own, unique off-color jokes.

Noted riffs:
"THERE IT IS! Oh, no it's just an island."
"We just now reached point dumb"

Inspired by his boss having a baby with some floozy name Rosemary, Freddy Kreuger decides he needs to have a kid too. After all, apparently even undead monsters have a ticking biological clock. Must be a "crocodile from Peter Pan" kinda thing, I guess.

This movie is most known for: The bold step in showing that overeating can kill you. Comic books (even ones with REALLY lame heroes) can kill you. Motorcycles can kill you. Um...when did the Freddy movies start becoming PSAs?

Noted riffs:
I don't remember any, it's been a while. Please post some and I will add them here.
 
 
About this riff: The ballad of Ronin and Erica is a love story for the ages. 17 and up, apparently.
Release Date:  January 27, 2011
Riffers:  Ronin Fox and Vamperica
Writers:  James Cruise, Erica Smith (Almost Erica Cruise at this point), Felicia Barbaro, Scott Hardie, Gary and Erin Slasher, Seth Paul and DB Barnes
Closing out the numbered Nightmare movies I knew I wanted to make it a big deal if I could.  I fell short of one of my first ideas when it came to the Nightmare riffs.  I wanted each of the first five movies to have a different co-riffer, then when we got to the further sequels and spinoffs and so forth, they could come back in different combinations.  Instead, we had our first repeat team in the series, Vamperica fast becoming my regular partner.  In order to find another way to make it a big occasion, I opened it up as our second open submission riff, and got a great response from it.
The movie itself isn't quite as memorable as the process, with the exception of all the imagery and plot it seemed to steal from Labyrinth.  The best part of this was watching the movie with each contributor's script and taking notes on all the jokes that made me laugh.  That's the kind of thing you'd think would get old quick, no matter who's writing the scripts, but they were just that damn fun.  This was one of the two riffs hit by computer problems though, a nearly complete version of the master script got lost along with a lot of the script for the next riff (Batman).  The second round of riff editing was a little harsher, but faster.  Can't wait to hit Freddy's Dead now just thinking about this one.
I'm kind of interested now to go back and try and listen to the four riffs with Vamperica to hear any difference in our chemistry together.  Each one so far represents a different stage in our relationship.  We did Nightmare 4 when we were still early into dating.  We recorded Dune after we had moved in together.  Nightmare 5 came during our engagement and Batman was released after we were married.  Now we're about to put out Happy Birthday to Me after our one year anniversary....but I'm rambling now.

Available on Netflix Instant? No.

(http://www.movie-list.com/posters/big/zoom/nightmareonelmstreet4.jpg)
This movie, if anything, tries WAAAY too hard. In some ways it pays off. The beginning scene resurrecting Freddy may not make any sense, but dammit, it's one of the single coolest moments in the entire series! Also, this movie tries (with it's limited means) to show the characters being proactive in their dreams. Sadly they are mostly unimaginative cliches of characters. And apparently cliches are like the flu, they are communicable...or something, I'm not sure. Of course, it wouldn't be a Nightmare on Elm Street sequel if they didn't get things wrong too. That is where Ronin comes in.

This movie is most known for: They put Robert Englund in drag! *shudder* Even Mike dressed as Captain Janeway is less freaky than that.
      A supposedly "nerdy" unpopular girl with a rack like an anime character.
      We learn that Debbie hates bugs.

Noted riffs:
"Aaah! Jim Varney!"
"There is no dignity in this dojo! No sense! There is no muscletone in this dojo! No sense!

About the riff: Here is another word from your pal and mine, Ronin:
   The debut riff of Vamperica, and a good sign to me that my girlfriend would actually be willing to sit down and mock movies on microphone with me.  The fact that she is actually a much bigger horror movie fan than I am helped the transition here.
Nightmare 3 made the series fun again, Nightmare 4 tried to formula it to death, but its still fun through sheer force of will from Robert England.  Also, seeing the survivors of the last film mowed down quickly was almost like the series saying "wait, we left how many kids alive?  Damn, we're sorry, lets pick that up."

The one where Jason FINALLY gets his...potato sack? The hell? I mean, yeah it's scarier than grandma-lady in a sweater from the first one, but...are you even trying movie?

This movie is most known for: The tiiightest shorts on the p-p-perkiest ass I've ever see*droooool*
     Cockblocking a crippled kid with a machete to the face and a fall down the stairs. Daaaamn! Even Mr. Freeze thinks thats cold.
     Informing the world of the terrible dangers of lanterns.
 
Noted riffs:
The riff about Jason texting che che che he he he.
"I forgot my line. Doomed. Oh, right."
"Whipperwill. Whipperwill."
"I'm telling my Mom. Oh...wait..."
"Let me in! I'm supposed to be filming this!"
"So Jason's place is on Google Maps?"
 
 
About the riff: Here are some notes from Gary:
   Our triumphant return to Crystal Lake, this one had me sweating because I wanted to do so much better than our first Friday track.
   Thank goodness for the awesomeness that it brought to the table:  Dangerous Lanterns, Noodle Legs, and Pineapples!  That last one is from the bloopers; right before the pooping seen in the crappy market at the opening Erin mentions how odd it is to see pineapples there.  She STILL cracks up every time she says the word now, just going to show that riffing can scar you for life.
   The cat names in the opening scene (which is 90% first movie) was fun, but letting Satan have his own riffing section was an easy out for the scripting pickle the prologue had us in.

Remember in Multiplicity when they kept cloning him and they got dumber and dumber? It takes a special kind of movie to not only be Twilight, but play by Multiplicity rules. A werewolf is attacking your village? Who ya gonna call? Dear God, please not M. Night Shyamalan! Oh, um...Gary Oldman...ok. At least he'll take this serious...his character brings his family along? Damn teenagers liking this bullshit, back in my day this kinda crap never got past the drive-ins, why I aughta...

This movie is most known for: This fairytale gets it right in the tail. What? Fuck it, if this movie won't try, neither will I.

"...where as in Twilight... Billy Burke had a mustashe."
"Let me get my hammer, then we'll have three tools."
"Oh. Dear God. Two days in there. Didn't think I was going to make it. Here, disinfect the crap outta that, will ya?"
 
About the group: Yet another I haven't tried. I haven't seen too many reviews of this one on the Rifftrax forum that I recall. And it would have to take some seriously high praise to get me to sit through a Twilight clone. They have riffed more fun movies like Drive Angry, so that may be a better place to start.

Badass aliens vs. Snake Plissken! Whoever greenlit this movie, the hookers and blow are on me tonight, buddy! And it has Wilford Brimley? Building a spaceship?! I just got diabeetus from how sweet that was!

About the group: I think I watched their Mortal Kombat iRiff years ago, and I remmeber that I liked it. That's about it. One Man Band is one of the other groups that tries to have more pronounced characters that are riffing, as apposed to just the riffers as themselves. And it even has a post apocolyptic "setting" so to speak, even though it is all audio, not a VOD.
 
About the riff: Here is SJP on the matter:
   I wanted to challenge myself on doing a movie I really did think was above such cheap mockery, but I think the jokes turned out well because it was a movie I could sit and watch without feeling like I was grinding my soul into the dirt (unlike Legion, which may be the only movie I've ever done I don't ever want to see again if I can help it).  I also think it has the best Stupend-O skits of the ones I've done, not only from a technical standpoint, but because the structure and pay-off were fun to write and fit well with the movie.  Plus, PPD gets to say "di-a-bee-tus" completely out of nowhere.

Watched two iRiffed films last night (inlcuding one that I found via this LoC  :) ), so I have a couple additional quotes from films represented above.  Many need the context to be comprehensible.

Wasp Woman:
In first about 5 minutes or more, all there are are beekeepers doing beekeeping stuff in real time, and walking (with incredibly little editing) between one collection of wooden hives and others.
RIFF: "Boring?  You ain't seen nothing yet!  For Corman this is an action sequence!"

Beekeeper pulls one of the panels out of a hive, it is covered with bees.
RIFF: "Man, you REALLY need to change your air filter!"


I, Robot:
Blue light-stripe of computer 'VIKI' seen near ceiling of room in Will Smith's friend's house.
RIFF: "Liquid Smurf pumped through every room in the house."

Will Smith grabs cat and surfs out of the house on the front door, into the pool, being chased by the house-demolition robot.
RIFF: "Now you've got a wet cat, that's even worse than a killer robot!"

It is revealed that Will Smith has a prosthetic/cyborg arm.
RIFF: "A robot arm!  THAT is why he's got that chip on his shoulder!"  [I LOVE when both meanings of a pun apply!]

James Cromwell's hologram response to Will Smith as the cop, "THAT is the right question."  As it fades out.
RIFF 1: "That'll do pig."  [harkening back to 'Babe']
RIFF 2: "He prefers 'Detective' or 'Officer'."


Maybe I'll get to some more quotes from the films in the 'upper numbers' of my list tonight and the next few days, as this continues.

Again: great work Darth Geek!  This was a massive undertaking to include all the ties as separate entities.  But I know I'm not the only one who is grateful for the exposure to more iRiffs I hadn't been aware of before.

I couldn't find any information on them, except an old film review site called FilmQuips and I'm not sure if they are done by the same people. I did find a good recommendation for this riff by poobah103, of Cinester Theater. So that is some high praise.

"Camera Two. You're on, camera two. Oh, uh, I'm a scary monster. Oooooo."
The jokes about Edgar wearing Satan's wardrobe.
Tremors --- "The Michael J Fox story"
"Give it up, Lucas. Harrison can't play Indy anymore."
"Anybody else think it's a bad omen that they're drinking Crush?"
 
About this riff: Here is Gary to give a few details:
  This track was a first in many ways.  It marked our first foree into submission scripts  and the first time riffing a movie got us hate mail.  Yes, someone felt so strongly about this cinematic classic to send us a profanity riddled rant on how we should cease to exist for riffing this movie.  Yowsers. 
  People sometimes forget, we riff the movies we hate, AND the movies we love.  This one is from the latter category.  Kevin Bacon was a treat as usual, as Satan points out we are a bit Bacon obsessed but hey, who isn’t? 
  Most memorable has to be Satan’s title riff at the very beginning, makes me shake my head in shame every time, and then I still laugh.

Hor-Riff-ic Productions - Friday the 13th part 4

Combining Jason Vorhees, Corey Feldman and Crispin Glover in one movie. This much concentrated 80s is very dangerous and should only be taken in small doses. Your legs will start to get cold, but DO NOT put on leg warmers! Watching this much 80s may cause spontanious shoulder pads and David Bowie hair (related to Hockey Hair). Should your Bowie Hair last longer than four hours, consult a photographer, because it is really really funny.

This movie is most known for: Calling itself the Final Chapter, yet sequel baiting at the end anyway.
    For some reason, trying to have a red herring as to the killer's identity IN A JASON MOVIE!

Noted riffs:
"Look, it's Wessex County. No wonder this place is always crawling with horny teens."
"Oh man, I accidentally rented Taints of Titanium. I wanted Buns of Steel."
"If just one person slips on that banana peel during the final chase scen it'll have all been worth it."
"I think he just gave the sign to bunt."
"Aaaaand BRIS!"
I loved the running gag about the stick being snapped.
"Rob has taken the bold choice to actively search for Jason. Lets see how that turns out."
"What's with the eyeliner, kid? You look like a Goth easter egg."
The running gag with the boyfriend yelling things after he was dead was great.

About this riff: Taking some time out of his busy slashing schedule, Gary fill us in on some details:
   By far the worst Friday in our opinion, so bad in fact that we opened it up for submissions.  It was great to have them too.  All the talented writers that helped out turned this turkey into riffing gold, despite Jason barely being in it at all!
   A young Corey Feldman and spastic Crispin Glover provided us enough fodder to muscle through all the pain this movie caused.  We had so many Crispin dancing jokes we were rolling on the floor reading them all and wish we could have kept them all.

Turkey Shoot - Hitler: Dead or Alive
(Total Points: 30    Number of Lists: 2  Highest Ranking: #9 Invader Quirk)
(http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y107/saintsammy/TurkeyLogo.jpg)
(http://t0.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcTBj57ilx_LJkL8HOHth9jK9RFSaVjfGSbWPpQyoef9w5_hR4A5kq75zCEBHw)
In the middle of World War 2, one innovative businessman decided "Hey, maybe we should, like, shoot that Hitler fellow". But how to do it? And who to send? Having had some luck selling his couch via ad in the newspaper, he decides that any American off the street would do. Or some clearly untrustworthy 2nd rate gansters. Sure, why not? Well, this whole movie is a dissertation on why not to do this.
 
 
This movie is most known for: Not since the failed Hitler sitcom have we seen such an indepth and accurate portrayal of the inner working of wartorn Germany.
      The same year, the Navy Seals were first formed. Coincidence? I think NOT!
 
 
Noted riffs:
(*whistling Yanky Doodle*) --- "It's the macaroni version, open fire!"
"Why aren't you dead yet?"
"M. Bison! No!"
"Rush Limbaugh has a cuckoo clock just like this."
"Ma Kettle? Woh!"
"Heil me, heil me, heil me."
All the riffs on them not even mentioning that Dutch died.

About this group: Turkey Shoot is definitely one of my favorite iRiff groups working now. A MUST BUY if there ever was one. Scott Zee is a single riffer, and I usually prefer multiple riffers, as the interaction can make it more interesting. But Scott Zee is...unique to say the least. His voice reminds me of a combination of a muppet and a grizzled old prespector, and is just entertaining as hell to listen to on it's own. This is definitely the kind of guy who could genuinely just read the phonebook and it would be fun. His riffing style is quite a bit different than MST3K, Rifftrax and the like. More of a commentary style than lots of references for the sake of references. His riffs are very funny and clever, but it all comes down to the performance. He puts a LOT of effort into his vocal performance. Varied tone, exagerated emphesis on words, variety in voices when riffing as a character in the movie, and just plain ENERGY. I have mentioned before in some of my posts on how important vocal performance is in a riff, and this is truly the gold standard by which they should all be judged. Also, Turkey Shooot exclusively (so far) riffs public domain movies and shorts. So they are always VOD and no syncing required.
 
 
About this riff: And we switch over to Turkey Shoot world headquarters for a word from the head honcho himself, Scott Zee:
  God Bless the good people at archive .org and their strange predilection to cataloging things that if discovered in your basement or attic, would probably land you 10-20 in any state corrections house. I learned of this ham-fisted, barn-burner through an interview with Quenten Tarratino, which he discussed the release of 'Inglorious Bastards', stating 'Hitler:Dead OR Alive' was a main
influence for his latest project. Thank you muchly for the info, you overated, derivative, Popeye-looking, foot-fetish freak!
Three hired crooks, sent forth by a wealthy American scientist, join the Canadian Military, and with the aid of a hot-shot fighter pilot, paratroop into the sauerkrautin' Fatherland. Then after a short stay in a safe-house, they somehow manage to attend an SS-themed recital staged for De Fuerer himself. And that's where it gets all kookie..and NUTTY even! Followed by an improptu
kidnapping-torture routine, our  pluckey assassins grindingly shave off Adolf's signature facial hair. Then his own soldiers gun'im down in the streets cause they can't recognize him! WHHHUUUUUT THUUUHHH FUUUHHHH--....??!! I'm hoping this over-zealous fantasy tale did little to convince movie-goers that it all could be this easy. So basically it's about some guys ridding the world of a
continent-dominating, military dictator by knocking-out a few stormtroopers, high-tailing it back to the hide-out, only later to have the main hood exclaim to his cohorts,"Naw..wait!..Yknow what?!..I got a better idea! Yeahhh!". If it somehow involves rallying Russian forces to surround, shell, and shoot the crap out of Berlin, then you may have a shot at this.

Cinester Theater - Back To the Future
(Total Points: 32    Number of Lists: 4  Highest Ranking: #1 Stansimpson)

(http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/5/52/Back_to_the_future.jpg/220px-Back_to_the_future.jpg)
In a desperate search to find a relationship creepier than an old mad scientist and a teenage boy, Doc Brown invents a time machine so the teenage boy can go back and make out with his teenage mother. Much adventure, Lea Thompson cleavage, high school bullies in their mid twenties, and retribution via manure ensues.
 
 
This movie is most known for: Started the trend of white wild hair that became so popular in the 80s among men in their 80s.
     Redefined the term "shitfaced".
     Introduced the world to Crispin Glover. No amount of appologies will ever be enough.

Noted riffs:
(Who is that guy? I don't know, but I'm going to find out.) --- "with my vagina"  [this riff was a huge hit with the 6 year old in our group we accidentally watched this riff with]
(I've got to tell you about the future!) --- "It rules! We got Nintendo!"
"I finally got rid of that damn dog!"
(Doc gets out of time machine for the first time, large cloud of smoke.) --- "Aint nuthin' but a G thing, baybe!"
"My turn!"
"I'll punch you."
"I've invented the Remote Control Vehicular Manslaughter Device."
 
 
About the riff: If there was ever a riff that disproved the "you can't riff a comedy" rule, it would be this one. (Thrifty, keep quiet!) A fucking hilarious movie and a genuine classic in it's own right. Yet the riff here truly only ADDS to the experience and complements it in a way that few riffing groups can. This is the riff that made Cinester Theater a MUST BUY for me, and I am really glad they eventually riffed the trilogy.

(Total Points: 33    Number of Lists: 2  Highest Ranking: #2 Compound)
(http://static.rifftrax.com/files/imagecache/product/BS_StarWarsIV_450x600.jpg)
A long time ago in a galaxy far far away, danishes were a hairstyle, swords were made of light and swooshy noises, and sound travelled through space. Also, asthma inhalers were really cool looking
full body suits (complete with cape. The cape is medically necessary!) and we didn't yet know Vader was Luke's father (unless you watched them in the wrong order). The story follows two very
useless robots as they encounter much more interesting characters. Kind of like Clerks.

This movie is most known for: Losing the Pest Picture Oscar to Annie Hall. This is probably why there is such a blatant Jewish stereoptype in Phantom Menace.
     Introducing the term "space opera". By doing so, it is the only time anyone in the general public talks about opera.
     Being far better than Star Trek.
 
 
Noted riffs:
I don't know any. Please post some and I will add them here.
 
 
About this group: Blame Society is a group that primarily makes videos about Chad Vader, brother of Darth Vader, who is a screw up and very lame (even though he doesn't know it)*. This is the only iRiff they released. The same group also colaborated with Rifftrax once for Episode II, and have released a few Rifftrax Presents.

Little known fact: This was supposed to have been "The Last Unicron", but at the last minute they kept him for the Transformers movie. Massive rewriting was neccessary.
Anyway, the movie. Extiction! Yeah, that's what the little girls who went to see this movie want to watch. A beautiful doomed creature searching for why an energy drink drove horny animals into the sea. Wait...what?

This movie is most known for: The answer to the question "So, what did Jeff Bridges do right after Tron?"
      A movie about unicorns, but with the significant lack of Tim Curry in cool prosthetic makeup.
 
 
Noted riffs:
I don't know any. Please post some and I will add them here.
 
 
About this riff: Ronin fills us in on some details:
Release Date:  January 1, 2009
Riffers:  Ronin Fox and Nykk
Writers:  James Cruise, Nick Andrews and Andrea Krottner
I grew up watching this movie, and when I moved out of my parents house I still had a loaded VHS tape full of cartoons with this movie right at the beginning.  One day when I was going through my stuff I found that tape, but it in the VCR, and along with my roommate Nick I wound up tearing this movie apart.  I can't remember most of what we said as we riffed off the cuff, but I do remember at one point we both started screaming and ran out of the room when the third or fourth song by America came on.
Years later when I was just starting to riff, I happened to see a special edition of this on the shelf, and I knew I just had to riff it, if possible with Nick again.  Deep down though, I still enjoy the film and it makes me nostalgic as hell.  While preparing for this, I actually read the original novel and enjoyed it even more.  Every time I think about the movie now I end up also thinking about how the author, Peter S. Beagle, got majorly screwed over twice by the film industry.  First by writing the screenplay for the animated Lord of the Rings movie for almost nothing but the promise of future work that never came, and secondly by the home video rights to Last Unicorn, and how he still doesn't get a cut of any of the DVD sales unless you buy it through his website
(www.conlanpress.com (http://www.conlanpress.com/)).  Okay, enough of that.
The most distinctive feature of this riff might be spoilerworthy.

How do you insult the creativity of a cartoon that consisted mostly of goofy looking characters screaming "AAAAAAHHHH!" and throwing flashy powers at aech other with streaky backgrounds? Well, hiring the director of the Jet Li movie The One was probably part of it. And turning Goku into a mopy oppressed teenager going to high school. And not making Bulma's hair blue, and, you know what movie, a better question is: "How can you be so bad I actually care, when I never liked Dragonball in the firstplace?!"

This movie is most known for: Ruining all momentum on the live action Pokemon movie the studio had in developement, starring Lance Henriksen (as Ash).
     Which was worse: Street Fighter:Legend of Chun Li, or Dragonball? To steal from another epic fail, "Whoever wins, we lose".
 
 
Noted riffs:
"That's it! I'm putting on a boot!"
"Dave Foley? Scott Thomson? What are you kids doing in here?"
"Your line is: Oof."
(I can always sense my grandfather.) --- (Maybe that's because you're eating his leg."
"My Life-Alert exploded."
"God's a chicken and he ate my feet!" (definitely my favorite line in the whole riff!)
"Eminem found the Mask!"
"Wow, that is the crappiest Goomba costume I've ever seen."
"If I stand like this my hair makes sense."

About this group: The best of the best when it comes to iRiff groups, Quiptracks is truly my top favorite group here. Always funny, always good performances. An immediate MUST BUY for me. They are not nailed down to one genre, but they do have a proclivity towards silly action movies and M. Night Shyamalan. They have shown a proclivity towards bad puns, and sometimes have violence for said bad puns (unusally against Tracy). The regular riffers are Tristan and Tracy, two brothers. Sometimes accompanied by either Cody, a friend, or Kevin, their father. Tracy is the younger brother, and has a...um...rather "girlish" voice, particularly in the earlier tracks. He is a guy, though. And he assures me that my mother would tell me so. Whatever that means... This is one of the few groups that has their own site that they actually sell their riffs through, as they predate the iRiff section by a bit. In fact, they have all of their riffs for sale on their site http://www.quiptracks.com/zencart/ (http://www.quiptracks.com/zencart/) and only have a select few available on the iRiffs section of Rifftrax. Their site also hosts the riffs of other groups, Turkey Shoot, Ice on Mars and TreacheRiffs.
 
Side note: I have had the fortunate opportunity to write riffs not only for them, but WITH them. I have done riffing sessions with them numerous time via Skype. Originally on HULK, and now on a new movie riff which has not been announced to the public. They are always fun to work with, and have a deep sense of professionalism and wanting to make every riff count. If anything, they make their jobs more difficult for themselves, as they try to stay away from repeating riffs, doing very obvious riffs, stealing from MST3K or Rifftrax, or having ecessive amounts of running gags between tracks.
They also have a proclivity towards comparing human actors to furry animals. I still don't really get that. And yet they wouldn't let me compare the Hulk to a Leprechaun.

Taking the bold stance to show us how boring the world would get if genetic engineering were allowed to continue. Yeah. Nope, nobody making any really cool things with it, like dinosaurs or giving people useful new abilities, nothing to see here. We're all just fashion models on the goddamn runway of life! Somehow, Ernest Borgnine is let in and gives the most passionate line of dialog in the whole movie: "HA!"

This movie is most known for: Showing what the future would be like if Howard Hughes was in charge. You know, during his REALLY crazy germaphobe stage.
     Being slower than sleepwalking backwards.
     The most emotional self-cremation since Return of the Living Dead.

Noted riffs:
The piano solo song is my favorite bit. It's awesome!
"Likely cause of death: Knife fight with a nun."
"Do not ignore my veins!"
"It makes me giddy with joy just thinking about it." (the performance is what makes it great)
"It's upside down, the machine is on."
"Now this one's got an olive in it!"
"His eyes are Zip-loc bags filled with Lime-ade. No lenses could correct this."
"Look, I was ordered to cut off his escape and that's what I'm doing."
"I'VE matured since childhood! No, I'VE matured since childhood!"

About this riff:
Released: June, 2010
Features: Tristan, Tracy, Cody

A note from Cody:
I was the one who suggested this track in the first place. My lazy Biology teacher preferred to have us watch movies than teach us. Probably my favorite movie we’ve done. This one felt like it came along perfectly, with less obnoxious scenes than some of the others.
 
Bullet points from Tristan:
- First seen by Tracy and Cody in 10th grade Biology class (about a year after QuipTracks started)
- Cody wanted to riff it since then
- We put it off because we thought it might be too good a movie (or too boring)
- Once we started, however, the long pauses and dry narration were easy to riff
- The second movie we've done that I enjoyed on its own merits beforehand (the first being Jurassic Park)

Morgan Freeman talks while penguins die. Fun for the whole family!

This movie is most known for: Proving conclusively that penguins are very cute.
            Proving conclusively that (even though they are cute) penguins are very boring.
            More white in this movie than in Birth of a Nation.

Noted riffs:
All the riffs about Chicksy Falcone.
"Especially THAT one. Don't get attached to THAT one."
"Nope! We just got a Tom Tom."

About this riff: If there was any doubt about Cinester Theater being one of the best of the best iRiff groups, this proves it. The very idea they would go after a documentary at all is amazing, particularly one that has so much empty space. But fill it with riffs they did, and it is glorious! Not since some of the more infamous MST3k episodes have I seen such successful riffing to long patches of no dialog. And they somehow make Morgan Freeman even more diabloical than they did Doc in Back to the Future.

Ronin Fox Trax - A Nightmare on Elm Street 5
(Total Points: 26    Number of Lists: 3  Highest Ranking: #11 @ScottOTD)

Had this at #22. It's a solid track with plenty of good laughs. I guess I'm a little biased having written a bunch of riffs for it, but it's definitely a fun time with a rock-stupid movie that delivers a lot of laughs. The two RFT projects I've been a part of have for have both been a blast to write for. Ronin picked nice. target-rich goofball movies for his submission riffs. I only wish the sound quality was a little better on this track.

Didn't make my list just because it's not one of my favorite Friday riffs by Hor-RIFF-ic, but that doesn't mean it's not worth checking out. They do a good job with all of the Fridays and you can't really go wrong with any of 'em.

#17 on my list. I have a real love/hate relationship with this riff, having spent seemingly countless hours going through it minute by soul-crushing moment in order to write gags. I think anyone who did the same would agree that the experience bordered on traumatic. But at the end of the day (many, many days) it was worth it. The final product turned out great. Lots of good joke variety and just overall entertaining. Oh, and Final Chapter MY ASS!!!

Shit. I gotta admit I spaced a bit on this. Not saying it definitely would've made the final cut of my list, but this is a very solid, funny riff from RFT. One of several holiday-themed riffs that are fun to dial up when the time comes around.

Well, I now have Zardoz, Red Riding Hood, The Thing, Planet of the Apes, and Krull all in my Netflix queue.  Funny thing was: I was down to about six films I actually wanted to see in my list there, and wasn't finding much there that I wanted to see, but if this is any indication, I suspect I'll have quite a queue lined up by the time this LoC is over!

We finally find out what was eating Gilbert Grape. This Blob ripoff at least has the decency to have a different tone and is more about consumerism and it's effects. Featuring a surprise endorsement of right wing gun nut militias at the end.


This movie is most known for: Michael Moriearty is awesome, even when he is trying to look stupid.
      Increasing the sales of ice cream at movie theater consession stands. Unfortunately, most of it was so they could take it home and feed it to their dog to see what happened.
      Being a PSA against eating anything you see bubbling up out of the ground. Was this really a pressing concern?

Noted riffs:
I don't know any. Please post some and I will add them here.

About this riff: Gary wants to say something:
   Not many people have heard of, seen, or own this movie and it continues to be our lowest seller.  But we couldn’t care less.  This one was always a personal cult favorite of ours and we had to do it.  It had the most original plot, which is to say it had none what so ever.

What else is there to say?  It’s a movie about a killer dessert!  Mo, was a great character to have and provided some great lines. “Oh, that’s a sweaty frond!”

Before Linda Hamilton had to deal with Terminators trying to kill her kid, she had to deal with kids trying to terminate her! What a twist! This movie is a multi PSA against extreem religion, having children, and adapting Stephen King novels. Starring a taller and creepier Deep Roy, and a proto-Carrot Top, this movie spares no expense to at least have a creepy LOOKING cast.


This movie is most known for: Promoting child murder even better than Beware! Children at Play.
          We still don't know for sure if corn is grass or not, but these kids have been smoking something REALLY trippy.

Noted riffs:
(No one's looking.  No one's looking.) --- "Well they're looking now."
"Worst parade ever."


About the riff: Gary wants to chime in:
   This was only our second track and we still hadn’t hit our stride yet, that being said we’re very proud of this track.  Satan joined our ranks for the first time on this one and was reduced to sync line only duty as he got a feel for riffing.

  Stephen King has been very kind to us, we’ve done a few of his movie adapted novels now and this one was personally fun for us being from Iowa and having, like all Iowans, a vast knowledge of corn and what dwells infront of and behind it’s rows. So therefore the corn puns of course are our faves.  “I feel like I’m being STALKED.” “It’s like a MAIZE in here!”

Hor-Riff-ic Productions - Halloween III
(Total Points: 37    Number of Lists: 4  Highest Ranking: #3 Artie)

(http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Halloween_III__Season_of_the_Witch_6349.jpg)
Don't you just love pranks? I do! And so do the Irish, apparently. Why, senile old Irish occultists are the best practical jokers around. Everything from TPing the Protestant Church, to throwing eggs at houses that don't hand out beer on Halloween, to an elaborate nationwide plot to kill hundrends of thousands of children watching a network distributed commercial while wearing mass produced masks with magic computer chips made from Stonehenge. Ha ha, the fun. Sure Tom Atkins tries to stop this, but he's only motivated because they paid him in booze.


This movie is most known for: For some reason being "that Halloween movie without Michael Myers", instead of "the only Halloween movie with Irish magic killer masks." I really think that might have spiced up the rest of the movies in the series.

Noted riffs:
"Eli Roth's Pinnochio."
"I'm gonna have to hit the old dusty trail."
"Why it's raining over here, too!
"He hasn't run this fast since a Heineken truck jackknifed on the highway.
"This bar is listed in his file as an emergency contact.
(But business was getting bad) --- "Maybe that giant Closed sign in the window might have something to do with it."
(Where would you like to sleep, doctor?) --- "In a bathtub filled with Schnapps."
I loved the Oompa Loompa lyrics.
"He's changed into Drunkman! Drunkman awrlrgh."
I laughed so hard at the idea of Satan having the Silver Shamrock tune as his ringtone.
"Wow. Never play horseshoes with THAT guy."


About the riff: I interrupted Gary again, I think he's getting kid of annoyed with me:
   This one might be my personal favorite of our tracks.  I take pride in every person that’s been exposed to this debacle of a film and left saying, “wtf was that?”  They’re still selling just this movie in the Walmart $5 bin, I’m taking credit for that too while I’m at it.

We’d always wanted to get into the Halloween franchise but the first 2 movies had already been done.  Solution?  Riff the 3rd movie that has nothing to do with ANYTHING in the first 2 movies and that no other group would probably like to touch.

Tom Atkins stole this track; his drunken performance outshone any weird face melting, Celtic robot, cult conspiracy.  We ripped him up so much in this one we even made a “Sorry Tom Atkins” t-shirt, even though we’re really not.  “Drunk man Awa..blalakjalsjlhaglasjinzpreh!”

In the immortal realm of Hollywood, the fate of Earth shall be decided. In the time honored tradition of video game adaptation: known as Mortal Kombat. One warrior must defeat the invading fighters of stupididty. Earth's champion is chosen: Paul W. S. Anderson.           We are SO boned!


This movie is most known for: Still being one of the best video game movies ever made. Let that sink in for a minute.
       Giving Christopher Lambert work in between Highlander sequels.
       Goro was BADASS!

Noted riffs:
I don't know any. Please post some and I will add them here.


About this riff: Here is SJP:
   Mortal Kombat is my second fastest turnaround, two weeks from initial writing session to finished product.  It's also apparently my most popular one, though I couldn't say exactly why it works.  Maybe it's just a movie a lot of people enjoy watching.  Maybe it's the price tag.  Maybe everything about it just clicked.  All I know is it was one of the top 5 of the top 50 iRiffs for some time (about a week or so), and I'm so very grateful that has done as well as it has.  I do think that the more fun I have with a movie leads to a better product, and this one was just bad enough for the jokes to come easily (at least, they seemed hard at the time; it's certainly easier than others I've done since) while being fun enough to watch over and over again for material.

A mother is trying to be convinced that her son isn't missing but in fact never existed, all in a conpiracy that is even more elaborate and stupid than Birthers. The movie presents us with the idea that this is aliens. This doesn't make sense for only one reason: this is an upper middle class family. Aliens only like to probe rednecks. Julianne Moore goes on the run and investigates things. Many hilarious whooshing away by aliens ensues.


This movie is most known for: Proposing that you can convince a mother who WENT THROUGH LABOR that she never had a child. And she buys it! I'm surprised they didn't try to get rid of her by telling her she doesn't know how to breath, and she forgets that too, asphyxiating to death.

Noted riffs:
"Hello, I'm still not swinging. They told me this park was full of pushers."
I forget all the time. "Except for that one thing.. no wait, that too."
I miss Lauren too. "Lauren three can go to hell."
While looking at the blank photo album: "All my pictures of an unlit coalmine gone... perhaps.", "Jim Gaffigan in a snow strorm!"
"I was dumb enough to try and hold up a library, and now I can't even find my gun."
"Being intoxicated, as I clearly am, this made me weary. Good 'morrow!"
"I'm terribley sorry about all this, I'm just so just so drunk is all, being a drunkard and what have you... yes quite."
"You're not drunk. You've never been drunk."

About this riff:
Release: March 2010
Riffers: Tristan, Tracy, Kevin
- Seen by Tracy and Cody in jr. high movie club
- A different kind of movie for QuipTracks... What was supposed to be a psychological thriller, and more emotional than most of the movies we do.

Get outta my dreams! And into my...uh...pool? What, he was in the car at the end of the last one. What the hell?
And 'Freddy's Revenge'? So...he's getting "revenge", from being ignored at the end of the last movie, on completely different kids. You know, I'm starting think this series is kinda silly.


This movie is most known for: In a movie series about a killer child molester, this is "the gay one".


Noted riffs:
I don't know any. Please post some and I will add them here.

About this riff: Here is Ronin to tell us all about it:
Release Date:  July 8, 2008 / Added to iRiffs on February 8, 2009
Riffers:  Ronin Fox and Nykk
Writers:  James Cruise and Nick Andrews

The first time I got to work with Nykk on a riff, which was great because he's not only my oldest friend and my first roommate away from home, he was also the guy I'd end up riffing on everything that happened to be on tv anyway.  He was the guy who'd drop everything to watch a new MST3K DVD when I got it when my other friends would shrug or walk away to do something else, and he's the guy who got it when I walked out of High School on the last day of class, turned around and said "You'll never defeat me, bye now!"

Riffing Nightmare 2 was therapeutic in a way.  I hate this movie.  Hate it with a passion.  The only fun I have is the few scenes of Freddy cutting loose at the party and so forth, but overall this move just got everything wrong in my opinion.  I've ended up in more than a few long conversations about it, and people tend to misunderstand my hatred of this movie.  This move gained the reputation of being "the gay horror flick".  I'm far from the first person to pick up on the vibe.  The director denied it at the time, but the screenwriter admitted it.  Yes, there is a heavy gay tone to the movie.  So when I say I hate it, people turn around and think I hate it for being gay.  No.  I hate it for being severely anti-gay to the point that it equates homosexuality with being possessed by the soul of a demonic serial killer.  Everything that you can point to as being a gay undertone is connected to the main character being controlled by Freddy, and the one thing that is shown as being able to save him is his girlfriend. 

This riff was one of the fastest recordings I'd ever made, as with most of the riffs with Nykk, one of us was on vacation (in this case I was visiting my old home state of Ohio) and we only had one day to work with.  This also led to the creation of the second sync-voice in RFT, the BS-1000.  Any excuse to work in a Randy Savage impression is a good one, and being out of state away from Shadow it was our best option on short notice.

But actually your opinions in what you wrote [that you had many on your 'short list'] helped me decide to put some of those listed on my Netflix list to get the iRiff for, so your comments were much appreciated.

Rules for having a Merry Christmas at the Peltzers.
1. Copious amounts of Eggnog and booze. Especially if you are a police officer and about to drive.
2. Bake Gingerbread men. Note, using fresh ginger will give you more depth of flavor. Do not try licking the batter from the bowl while it is still in the blender.
3. Don't feed overly cute things after midnight. Although if you do, make sure to microwave them. They will explode really cool!
4. Do not invite this woman to your party. She will bum you out.
(http://www.soliloblog.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/Phoebe-Cates-Kate-Beringer-in-Gremlins.jpg)
5. No poofdahs.

This movie is most known for: Introducing the world to the Peltzer Smokeless Ashtray and the Bathroom Buddy. Resulting in many, many deaths. The Peltzer Corporation was bought out by Mainway Toys.
        Being partially responsible for creating the PG-13 rating. It was this movie, Temple of Doom, and Care Bears: The Movie.

Noted riffs:
"Hey, what are you doing? These things cause cancer! I'm just trying to look cool here."
"Aaah! Blam! Blam! Blam!"
(Hey, Billy!) --- "How come you haven't tapped that yet?"
"Oh yeah. I got the hand up my ass blues, so bad."
"So what they are trying to tell us here is that puppets are annoying."
And the reading of my letter to Joe Dante at the end always makes me laugh.


About this riff: Sure Gary, you can show me your new cleaver. Just first tell the nice folks about this riff:
   Riffing this classic was a challenge no doubt.  So much so that we were welcome in accepting some help from writer Ryan Downey to help us thru the infamous Bar Scene *shutters*.  Since the movie didn’t take itself very seriously it was harder to riff than some, but the generous amounts of gore that is splashed around in this supposed “family friendly” film was pretty great.

This one was a x-mas punfest, and we intended it to be.  We were planning on doing too many holiday themed movies so we went all out, going so far to have so many gory versions of Christmas carols that we made and extra music video just to accompany this track.

Did we go overboard?  Maybe, but ‘tis the season!

Quiptracks - Mission Impossible:2

Wait, what? You left this one off the list. Awesome—I was really disappointed this didn't make it.


Also—and I hope this doesn't mess too much up—but I'm 95% sure Alcohol is Dynamite was on at least three lists: Mine, Quirk's, and Coragale's. *checks* Ah, what the hell? It's not on there! And neither is another of my favorites! And I apparently only sent in 21, even though I had about 40 on my initial list. Man, I must've been sloshed on nitroglycerin when I sent that list in.... :(

Well, for the record, Alcohol is Dynamite is friggin' hilarious. In fact Scott Zee in general is always hilarious.

Way to RUIN CHRISTMAS, BILL.


So, people seem to want people on the list to say stuff, so here I go, I suppose.

Obviously, I'm glad so many QuipTracks have made the list so far. I remember in the days long before iRiffs--before we'd even heard of Rifftrax, Cody and I decided to try riffing Jurassic Park. Tristan joined in as well, and we sat down on our living room floor with the TV low enough that we could hear, but hopefully the mic couldn't. While working, we discovered Rifftrax and the online community. A few brave souls tried that track and gave us encouraging feedback which helped us grow. Looking back, the track sucked horribly, but if those guys had told us that instead of what they did, we may have quit then and there. Luckily, we improved pretty quickly. Our fifth anniversary edition of Jurassic Park has been called "better than the Rifftrax by far", which is unbelievably gratifying considering the horrendous state the same track was in five years ago.

So thank you, Rifftrax board, for the support. We wouldn't be doing it if it weren't for you. Our family and friends sure as hell don't care about it.

Not sure if joking or annoyed by long, needless post. You usually include winks and shit when you're joking.

I guess it didn't occur to me that people might not give a fuck what I think about any of this.

Personally, I'd like to hear a bit more chatter from the folks placing on the list. This must be pretty cool for you. Feel free to share your thoughts!

Well ask and you shall recieve D.B.  We're extremely flattered and honored to be on this list at all.  I know we've sort of fallen off the map this year but we're prepping for a comeback and seeing reviews where people are actually enjoying our riffs are a real motivation.

Speaking of groups who've fallen off the map ... pretty sure March marks the one-year anniversary of our last release, Day of the Triffids (which is now randomly back in the top 5 sellers for the week ... oh, if only iRiffs would ever pay us for it .... oh well). I'm staying quiet mostly because I want to let all the comments I made on the tracks speak for themselves, and I don't have much to say on the other tracks. I will note that "The Forgotten" is my favorite QuipTracks I've seen so far. Suggested line: "Kid, just get on the plane."

Cool. I already know at least one of my OMB picks is coming, possibly more. Oh, and new One Man Band coming soon, y'all! Lion King 2!

On the notable "Planet of the Apes" riffs (boy, I hope that was on my list... I love that one) I'd have to say the entire evolution fight sequence. I can't quote the whole thing, it's too long, but it almost had me breathless with laughter.

I had to transcribe this because it's one of the greatest moments in all of riffing:

Quote from: FilmQuips
And if you are just joining us this is the knockdown drag-out grudge match for the evolution of the species for the Charles Darwin Championship... Australopithecus Robustus taking on Java Man... Oh! And Java Man is down.

These Australopithecines showing no signs of slowing down. Australopithecus Africanus entering the fray. Wasting no time. Bang! He pounds Homo Habilis into extinction.

Other species evolving, coming out of the trees. Really doling out the punishment here, especially now that they've mastered that bipedal stride. Here we see Piltdown Man, trying to make a run for it before someone discovers he's a hoax. Homo Erectus now toe-to-toe with Neanderthal Man who's taking no prisoners. He's got him in the power lock. And giving him the spinal cracker! Homo Erectus no longer erect.

Megazostrodon, the tiny shrew-like mammal trying to compete but he's just no match for these big hominids who'll no doubt make short work of this tiny quadraped.

Another Neanderthal Man pummeling Sahelanthropus Tchadensis putting those stone tools to good use.

Now here's the real star of the hour, Lucy, an Australopithecus Afarensis watching a Cromagnon female not doing well. Lucy rushing in followed by the Cromagnon male. Cromagnon Man attempting to extricate his mate but he's caught between two early primates... and there's the slammer jammer and he is down! Lucy now executing a double sole toe and launching into a simian spring dismount coming to the aid of the Cromagnon female.

Now imagine all of that during the big fight scene at the end of the movie.

I think this is my favorite LoC to date (since I started participating last August). Really great write ups, and a very interesting selection of riffs.

Looks like I need to try out a lot more of Horr-RIFF-fic Productions. As a general rule, I despise slasher movies, since I can't stand to see girls being hurt (even though I do have one on my list, which hasn't shown up yet, but I'm sure will.) But it looks like they're pretty highly recommended.

Same here. I wish they'd do non-horror movies because I don't watch horror movies. I did watch Frogs and The Stuff. I liked Frogs quite a bit. I didn't enjoy The Stuff very much because the movie was meant to be tongue-in-cheek so I didn't think a lot of the riffs worked. I did love the line "I'd like to buy your car and make you the driver" though.

Some quotes from the first half of The Forgotten, by QuipTracks. I'd do the second half but I'm falling asleep (not due to the riff mind you). Maybe tomorrow.

"Hello, I'm still not swinging. They told me this park was full of pushers."
I forget all the time. "Except for that one thing.. no wait, that too."
I miss Lauren too. "Lauren three can go to hell."
While looking at the blank photo album: "All my pictures of an unlit coalmine gone... perhaps.", "Jim Gaffigan in a snow strorm!"
"I was dumb enough to try and hold up a library, and now I can't even find my gun."
"Being intoxicated, as I clearly am, this made me weary. Good 'morrow!"
"I'm terribley sorry about all this, I'm just so just so drunk is all, being a drunkard and what have you... yes quite."
"You're not drunk. You've never been drunk."

Darth Geek/Ryan was kind enough to ask those of us who made the list for feedback on the tracks that did make it, so I already know which ones of ours are going to be on the list, though not in which order. I totally want to be like, 'THIS WILL BE ON THE LIST AT SOME POINT!' Or, 'BUT THIS WILL NOT!' But I think that would ruin the fun, SO I'll stay mum. But thank you guys for the support! Big hugs!

Due to a minor error in the numbers, #34a Alcohol Is Dynamite by Turkey Shoot had more points. SO I have removed it and will post it when it comes up in the list. Also, the Incognito Cinema Warrior XP riff of The Talking Car had more points, and tied at 38 with Back to the Future by Cinester Theater, So I added it in the same post. I will fill in the details for The Talking Car tomorow when I have more time.

An innocent senile old man is badgered by everyone around him to conform, to the point where he halucinates about ghosts and goes insane.


This movie is most known for: Even considering how bad an adaptation it is, it still gets me in the Christmas mood.
      Still being a better movie than An American Carol.


Noted riffs:
(Merry Christmas!) --- “WHAT? Ah... nevermind. Man overboard.”
"Oh I look sh...spiffy!"
"What? You only have one line you little bastard!"



About the riff: Scott Zee here, reporting at the scene of the crime:
   With this adaptation to the Christmas Carol story, I was able to compare the masterful performance of Alastair Sim (him being a 40-ish man playing 70-ish) with the Parkinson's-driven
portrayal done by Seymour Hicks (a 70-ish man playing someone's fattened 3000 year-old mummified remains). Tragically he is cast as the titled old miser in this 1935 production of the classic Xmas
tale, and, lo and behold, I found this version to be quite economical as I wrote about my lil' quips. No Fezziwig, no sister Fenn, zero dollars in the special-effects budget, and a flurry of mumbled, hurried dialogue from our dear, lead thespian Seymour. It was so economical, in fact,  it reminded me of a dollar-store pack of wetnaps I bought for the car early last spring that I used to mop up some cherry cola from the cup-holder that was immediately tossed from my driver's-side window, and was barely remembered until this moment just now.

- Did most of the writing based on the movie's audio alone and memory

It is the future, and water is scarce and a valuable resource! Already this movie is irritating me by ripping off Tank Girl. Okay, okay, this different because it is iiiin spaaaace! And they locate a planet with lots of water (apparently in the form of Robert Van Winkle). Huh, must be located next to Planet X, home of the rare element Illudium Phosdex.

This movie is most known for: This is the only cheap Star Wars knockoff from the 80s, right?
       A castration scene played for laughs.
     

Noted riffs:
"Stop! I love her. I always have."
"Amontillado in-the-closet."
"The magic of reading!"
Vilanch credit off the bow
Amontillado in-the-closet
Summerstock!
The magic of reading!– (this is perfection)
Blazing Saddles
Zapruder film – (makes me laugh just thinking of it)



About this riff: SJP tells it best:
   Ice Pirates is an ol' nostalgia flick; yes, it's incredibly stupid, but I had seen it so many times as a kid that, despite its relative obscurity, I just wanted to do because it was there...like Everest, it had to be done, no matter what.  But besides that, because of a previous technical problem with sync lines, I used Ice Pirates as a test run for two new ideas: the PPD-3200, the slightly British and incorrigible onboard computer who could do syncing for me (which seemed to be working for pretty much everyone else), and Stupend-O, an idea I came up with to put skits into an audio-only track without throwing the film and timing into absolute chaos.  Oddly enough, I fixed my technical problem with the sync, and on every later track past this one, I've used my old method, and PPD has just become a sort of sidekick to crack wise with before, after, and on occasion, during the movie.  Sure, he's just me pitch-shifted doing a poor British accent, but the character has become so much fun to write for that it's hard to believe he started life merely as a solution to a problem I was having.  He's certainly been a lot more popular than Stupend-O itself, from what I understand, though I still do that process from time to time.

Sci-fi of the far future as imagined by the 30s, if they had deviantArt. And no sense of shame. And geese planes. Starring the guy who electrified the screen in Gattaca.
Also stars: Angelina Jolie and her all adopted army! Lawrence Olivier, as what Dr. Forrester wishes he was. And Feebie's dumb brother as a scietific genius!


This movie is most known for: My constant complaining about Polly Perkins.
       The CGI backgrounds being far more interesting than the characters.
       The boost in sales of Milk of Magnesia.
       Having all digital sets and effects. The pain is analog.


Noted riffs:
"It's going to strike that massive sea cow!  Oh, the huge manatee!"
"Bi-Captain & The World of Tomorrow"
"HONK HONK HONK HONK HONK!"
"We need to eject 110 pounds immediately!"


About this riff:
Release: June 2008
Riffers: Tristan, Tracy, Cody

- First seen by Tracy and Cody in a jr. high movie club
- Tracy gets beat up for incessant puns, a first for QuipTracks (There was one bit in The Lady In the Water redux, but that came later). Some people liked it, so we included more physical comedy in tracks for a while
- Lots of video game references

From the desk of Cody:
      In school, we had a Friday Movies Club where we watched movies on Fridays (go figure). This and the Forgotten were both featured during those fateful after school specials, and our fates were sealed. Not my favorite track, but I don’t hate it. It’s like a step son.

Turkey Shoot - Fire! Patty Learns What to Do

(http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y107/saintsammy/TurkeyLogo.jpg)
(http://www.rifftrax.com/files/FirePattyPosterFINISHED1.jpg)
Pop quiz, hotshot! There is a FIRE. What do you do? What do you do?
Um...put it out? Maybe with water.
Oh. Yeah, I was thinking you'd say "get a rhino". Dammit.

Well, fortunately Patty is now smarter than Dennis Hopper here. And all because she listened to the all-knowing narrator (possibly God, possibly the goat) about how useless she is.


This movie is most known for: Being Fire Marshal Bill's favorite movie.
       Showing that whole towns can really work together and get something done. This lesson was used to full effect during the Communism Scare. Patty and her whole family were immediately rounded up.


Noted riffs:
"Hey, dolly, this is you: Boo hoo hoo!" "Shut up!"
"I was just showing them my hat, and they threw me in the thistles."


About this riff:
FIRE!Patty Learns What To Do - And DO she DOES! Wow! This was our first effort at ripping-off Mystery Science Theater 3000, in the same way that Rifftrax and Cinematic Titanic do but less 'officially'. And I think we did pretty good mediocre job at that. Our young herione, Patty, recalls at a younger age the great fire that swept through the her local farmlands, putting herself and her family in some tepid state of distress. Reenactments rarely do their justice.  I was quite alarmed that by the end of this short Patty's big lesson was comprised pretty much of staying the hell out of every important person's way and petting a frightened goat which actually looked quite calm. A forecast of things to come for Mr. Zee.

Ok, so the captain sends a probe to got through a hole...wait, is this Janeway or Kirk?
The Romulans also are probing the hole, and...Ewwww! *checks wikipedia* Time travel...secret messages...Is this a sci-fi porno of The Lake House?


This movie is most known for: Neelix, the most unappealing cook this side of the Cafe Burf.


Noted riffs:
"Arms at maximum akimbosity!"
"A Room with a moose!"


About this riff:
     We got into the riffing daisy chain of Star Trek Voyager because we thought it would be good exposure, and because we were already fans of Ice On Mars, who were helming the project. It had been many years since any of us had seen the show, so we were not quite prepared for the slo-mo explosion of inane situations, lazy writing, and dopey characters that is Voyager. We picked (or were given, I don't remember) a great episode to do, though, (read: an episode without Neelix), and sci-fi is one of the richest genres to riff. Thus, this is one of my personal favorite QuipTracks. We gleefully lampooned the eternally akimbo Captain Janeway's hidden hair pie; the scrotum head of Lieutenant Torres (and her mother); the smug jackassery of self-proclaimed wormhole expert, Tom Paris; the endless pun opportunities of the nameless holographic doctor; and the unusually ethnic Vulcan, Tuvok. Bonus! Look for a special guest appearance by one of the Talking Heads!

In this movie, we learn that if you swirl your guns around in the maximum arc, and stand bolt upright while doing so, you will acheive the maximum of sillines! And if you rip off the most overused move in anime, you will acheive the maximum of cliche. Maximum!


This movie is most known for: Christian Bale being cool, just because he is Christian Bale.
           Sean Bean dies. I know, I didn't see it coming either.


Noted riffs:
"Here's your Melancholy Meal."


About this riff:
     Oh god, this movie... I sat, slack-jawed, staring at this pretentious, inane garbage while we watched it for the first time and felt like I did when watching Van Helsing—just...sad, mostly. However, we had enough good ad libs that we had to riff it (most notably the ridiculous death-bonking scene, which is just hilarious no matter how many times I see it). After we started to get into it, the movie was much easier to handle and became, for me, bad in a funny way. Equilibium was suggested to us by David Pinkston, I believe, who thought we would do a good job with it after having seen GATTACA.

Quiptracks - Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow

Noted riffs:
"It's going to strike that massive sea cow!  Oh, the huge manatee!"

With my list, (and my vote for this iRiff), this was the quote I included.   ;D

For this, taking place in an underwater chase sequence, a submerged ship precariously (and unrealistically) is perched when it originally sank so that it's two ends just HAPPENED to be on the tops of stalagmite-like protrusions from the ocean floor.  It was damaged, and collapsed.  The line occurs as it is collapsing, and - as one might guess - the latter 1/2 is said in the Hindenberg-announcer tones.

I think it is one of the cleverest bits of wordplay ever!  Certainly one of the funniest.  [Hell, I've seen the iRiff at least three times, and I'm still grinning just thinking about it while writing this.  :D ]  [[EDIT: I believe I'd just stepped out of my hyperbolic chamber when I wrote this... but seriously: that's some clever shit there!]]

Not yet.  I've still to watch the Quiptracks version so I can rewrite anything that overlaps (and something tells me I'll also end up picking up the Team FourStar riff as well to do the same thing).  I very seriously doubt it'll be the case that the jokes will be all that similar, though...I'm actually not a DBZ fan, and one of the reasons I had picked to do that one was to do the track with a friend of mine who is.  Sadly, I'm not on speaking terms with him anymore, and I think there were a few jokes that were back-and-forth based that'll have to be redone, but I do still plan on releasing that eventually...a few other things have cropped up in the meantime that have my attention at the moment (see the iRiffs thread for the latest debacle, I won't depress anybody with it here, though it's not really THAT depressing).

Anyway, back in topic, a quick thought...where ARE those arms attached to on the Seal of Approval?  ;)

This is only my two cents, but just record that shit. Joke overlap isn't that big a deal. I could see watching the other versions at the end of the process to make sure there isn't a LOT of overlap, but don't let it hold up the process.

I guess the upside of dragging it out, though, is that you've made such a big deal out of it that I will have to buy it as soon as it comes out now.

Just to butt in, the guys here don't worry about joke overlap. We talked about it when we first started doing the iRiffs contests (hopefully we'll do another soon). Given certain things happening in front of your face (in a movie, that is) there are always going to be a finite number of places you can "go" for the joke. Eventually some people will go to the same place.

Bones beams down to a planet that resembles the Old West of Earth, where he has to fight giant bunny rabbits. Best! Episode! Ever!



This movie is most known for: DeForest Kelly's quote for the VHS box art "Still more dignified that Star Trek 5".
          Critics panned the film for not being able to make real adorable bunny rabbits on miniature sets scary.
          The movie originally featured Daffy Duck in his most excited and happy role ever. But due to the brutality of his rabbit murdering spree, his scenes were cut.

About this group: Watchalong is another group I am not very familiar with. So far they have only released two iRiffs, this and Space Camp. Although they have mentioned before about intending to release a riff of The Boy in the Plastic Bubble, and possibly riff Maximum Overdrive, so I don't know if the group is still active or not.

After getting their asses handed to them trying to invade Melmac, aliens from...whatever Gollum's home planet was...invade Earth. Fortuantely, Earth's first line of defense snaps into action! Some little girl who likes to waste water.
It's a rip roaring adventure, as written by a high school emo kid high on tranquilizers, to save the planet covered in water from the water soluble aliens.


This movie is most known for: Mel Gibson trying, and failing, to go crazy.
       Macaulay Culkin's less tallented brother giving the best performance of the movie.
         


Noted riffs:
(Why can't the nerds get girlfriends?) --- "Because they never put the high rolls on Charisma. Geeks FTW!"
"My poor insane son."
All of the riffs about the aliens laughing at Mel for his "I am insane with anger" rant.


About this riff:
Riffers: Tristan, Tracy, Cody
      Signs has had it coming for almost ten years. It's pretty amazing that it took that long for a riff to come out (Rifftrax for some reason chose to tackle the only really good M. Night movie instead). We ripped through it, though, making up for lost time. I think this was our fastest turnaround for a full-length track, coming out less than two months after the embarrassingly late Equilibrium. We were in a good rhythm, for one thing, but also the movie is just riffing gold.

The worst day in a long line of drudgery for a lowly welder robot on the ship Axiom. Told entirely without dialog. Apparently in space, no one can hear you swear like a sailer. Fortunately, the ship lands on Earth before BURN-E is about to go on a Falling Down style rampage.


This movie is most known for: Causing the brief welder robot uprising of 2008. Fortunately it was cut short by the swift, brutal action of cleaner droid M-O. You do not fuck with M-O!

About this riff:
Release: December 13, 2009
Riffers: Kevin & Kyle
Writers: Kevin & Kyle
Musicians: Kevin & Kyle

Ah, the first and ONLY riff done entirely in music!

While we were fairly happy with our riff of Enter The Lone Ranger, we began wondering how we could possibly take things up a notch to create something that really stood out among the other iRiffs.  We had been working on some new songs for our band when it hit us.  Why not combine things and perform a riff entirely in song? Obviously this was a very risky move since it was so different from what everyone else was doing.  Doing original music would have been easy, but if people didn't like our songs then it wouldn't bode well for our riff.  As fans of Weird Al we felt that doing a medley of song parodies would be both challenging as well as amusing. Not only that, it could essentially turn our riff into a Sing-Along provided people were familiar with the basic structures of the songs we did. 

Having just watched the riff of Wall-E by Insert Coin(s) we were inspired to do a companion piece for the Burn-E short that appeared on the DVD. It was perfect. Not too long, and hardly any dialogue.  Next we began the painstaking process of picking songs that "fit" what was happening on the screen as well as being fairly well known.  Mike (from Team Swizzlebeef) joked that we should do the entire thing as a parody of Jethro Tull's "Thick As A Brick".  Little did he know we already had that song as part of our medley!  Just for good measure and wanting to go out on a big finale we whipped up the "Bonus Track" song which caps off the riff rather nicely.

Again knowing this riff was rather "out there" we decided to do as much as we could to help make things more enjoyable.  We put together subtitle files, convinced Piobman to put together a DVD cover complete with an insert that contained the lyrics to all the songs so people could sing along!

The life story of a savagely stupid boy "genius" who gets fooled by a villain that actually tells him he's a villain. It also has a Chippette in human form as his sister, a drugged and clearly very confused William Hurt as his father, and Matt LeBlanc showing that acting is not his Friend.

This movie is most known for: The "I love you wife" Hallmark cards that nearly bankrupted the company and got buried next to those old Atari E.T. cartridges.

    This was a unique choice for Ronin Fox Trax for several reasons, the first being it was the first movie I agreed to riff without ever seeing the entire thing.  This movie had defeated me into unconsciousness several times before.  The driving force behind this riff was, unsurprisingly to forum members active at the time, RVR II, who had already written a script for it and contacted me to see if I'd be interested in using it.  Adding my own material and taking on one of the most monumental editing tasks I've ever seen (really, editing six scripts for Masters of the Universe couldn't compete with editing two for this friggin movie) Vamperica and I did verbal battle with perhaps the weirdest movie we've riffed yet.  No matter how strange a movie gets, its hard to compete with pointless cat-milking.

This riff marked the in-riff debut of "Nigel" the sync-fox.  The little fox-puppet had already appeared on most of our posters, but since I had moved out of the old townhouse and my roommate Jen could no longer provide the voice of Shadow, he got a promotion to the microphone. 

(For the curious, his voice came directly from riffing this movie, as I had to constantly imitate Patrick Stewart's character.  Knowing I wanted a British feel for Nigel I started using that impression for Nigel, pitching the voice up in post production...and now the magic is gone, I'm sure.)

Best part of this recording was when a few lines were falling flat during the scene when the Baron pointlessly kills one of his underlings by yanking out his superfluous heart drain plug.  Vamperica, determined to solve the problem, took two takes to improvise a parody of Singin' in the Rain that ended up fitting the action of the scene perfectly.  Really, two takes, a couple minutes of work, and I didn't have to edit it or shift the timing at all.  It was scary and awesome all at once.

And now, a word from the one, the only RVRII:
       Basically, this started out waaay back in the day when Rifftrax had just come into fruition and I originally sent a PM to Mike on MySpace and he replied that he'd look into it.. Never got a follow up response from him.

Then I join the forum 8-9 months later and literally from Day 1 have been requesting this riff of Dune! This includes asking Bill and Kevin during a time when they would take questions on the RiffTrax Blog and Both had acknowledged they would like to do  a riff of Dune but again nothing ever came of it..

Then came the Fan Riffing thread where BTA and I had partnered to bring in other forum member volunteers to help write up a riff for Dune and it had some life for a time but again never became a reality..

So I took it upon myself that the only way this will come about is if I write a script then float it around to a couple iRiffers I had in mind because I liked their style and RoninFox accepted the challenge. He asked if he could re-write some parts and I agreed as it helps to have some additional input for funny lines that a single writer could miss while creating the script and the result was a very funny riff of a classic 80's cheese-fest of a movie!

So, since it seems the RiffTrax trio (M, K, & B) will probably never riff this movie, I am very satisfied to hear my own creation on a trac of it's own 8)

Hor-Riff-ic Productions - Frogs
(Total Points: 53    Number of Lists: 5  Highest Ranking: #12 Artie)
(http://rlv.zcache.com/hor_riff_ic_productions_mousepad-p144500397626003883z8xsj_400.jpg)
(http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/a/a8/Frogsfilmposter.jpg/220px-Frogsfilmposter.jpg)
This movie shows frogs to be what they really are: the masterminds. Behind the scenes master manipulators, getting other animals to do their dirty work. Oh, you thought Hypnotoad was just a funny joke on Futurama, but nooo. Here we see frogs clearly ordering other snakes, crocodiles, lizards, spiders and others to kill. Never getting their...uh...flippers wet. Well, wet with blood I mean. Bet you never look at Kermit the same way again. Fortunately in this movie the only humans being harmed are a well-to-do southern family of argumentative unlikable assholes. Led by a grouchy old man who is possibly more cold blooded than the reptiles. Visiting this family is Sam Elliot. He would be likable, except he is wearing jeans so tight we can tell what religion he is.


This movie is most known for: Being shown in science classes before "frog dissection day" so that the kids don't feel so guilty.

Noted riff:
The riffs about Three editors.
Kermit’s Rainbow Connection song
Frogs apologize to the audience.
"Think fast kids!"
"Enjoy the view, boys! Ugh!"
 

About this riff: Gary has had time to cool off, and I have had time to get medical attention. So Gary, how was it making a riff of Frogs:
Man, this was a great track, but a horrible idea at the same time.  I had wanted to do more monster movies and so looking at candidates we stumbled across this gem with no monsters in it, just clumsy wealthy southern gentiles.  Eco horror here we come!

Sam Elliot was a delight to riff, but can’t compare to the drunk crotchety old man jokes.  I relaxed every time he was on the screen knowing I’d be able to come up with something.  On the other hand every other scene is a cutaway to bored looking frogs or sleeping reptiles.  This required us to completely riff from scratch with nothing really to go on other than them being there.

Funny story, I had the swine flu when we made this one and my voice was completely gone by the end with so many different voices I had to make!

Quiptracks - Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li

The only time this sentance has ever been uttered: "Boy, I sure miss Jean Claude Van Damme!" Also, this movie features the scientifically cloned combination of Nicholas Cage and Keanu Reeves, CHARLIE NASH! Much fighting ensues. Most of it about which character, Cobra Commander or Wolverine, is insulted more by Vega dying like a bitch.


This movie is most known for: Increasing sales of peaches tenfold. Charlie Nash. Charlie Nash! Charlie fucking NASH! Somehow embarrasing the star of Mortal Kombat: Annihilation. Killing off Taboo from the Black Eyed Peas.

Noted riffs:
"That was kinky. Now dinner."
"When life gives you trouble, just flip the bird."
"Just to confuse you further, here's a guy in an M. Bison costume."
"His voice coach was Microsoft Sam."
"The Territorial Goose. Honk honk honk honk honk."
"They found out I'm a brony."
"I thought you ran away with the dish."


About this riff:
     This is the most recent QuipTrack, and the first to be recorded in our new apartment in Colorado Springs. We originally wanted to bring Matt back for this one, especially since it seems like a counterpart to Dragonball Evolution. And just as DBE made us want Randall Duk Kim to be in everything, this movie made us want Charlie Nash to be in everything. He's such an over-the-top actor, who clearly only read the script once, and who uses random inflection and motivation not only for each line, but switching between them in a single line. It's amazing to watch. Also, as far as forward referencing, this track splits the timeline. Or I guess the Jurassic Park redux splits it. At any rate, Chun-Li isn't referenced in Signs. My wish is that one day QuipTracks fanboys will come up with elaborate theories to explain the discrepancy in the canon.

And a note from Cody:
This movie... made me appreciate every other movie I’ve worked on. It also left me with a lingering desire for more Nash. And beaten Black Eyed Peas. There needs to be more of that in the world. I feel sorry for Neal McDonough and Michael Clark Duncan, though. They didn’t deserve that, especially McDonough. Those “sayings” they forced on him were terrible.

Well, cool giant robots, for one...but anyway, we follow our heroes trainees as they are initiated into the elite fighting unit G.I.Joe to fight COBRA. A terrorist organisation entirely snake themed, just to piss of Indiana Jones. Lasers are fired, both blue and red. Nobody dies. Aliens are discovered, they release spores. Just like real war. It's educationaLA-LA-LA-LA-LA!


This movie is most known for: Increasing the enlistment of mongooses in the U.S. Army. The origin of "whacking day". Briefly making "Slaughter" a top baby name.

Noted riffs:
"THEY SET, THE SNOW, ON FIRE!"
"Keep splicing! We need a tomato that tastes like a cornish game hen!"
Hey, is that a laser gun?
"RIIIICOBRAAAAA!!!"

About this riff:
Riffers: Kevin & Kyle with special guest riffer Matt Nelson (Dark Matter Productions)
Guest Appearances: Jonathan (Tom & Jon), Mike (Team Swizzlebeef), and Josh Way (all things Josh Way)
Guest writers: Monica Marier, SJP, DB Barnes, Erin & Gary (Hor-RIFF-ic Productions), RoninFox

This riff was originally going to be our first one.  We are huge fans of the old G.I. Joe cartoons and the movie was just a perfect target for riffing.  However almost immediately after we made that decision the Rhino version of the DVD was pulled from stores and discontinued.  Knowing that there was a live action movie in the works we kept track of things hoping for an eventual re-release.  Sure enough Shout Factory saved the day and re-released it on DVD & Blu Ray! 

The whole guest bits came about when Kyle wasn't sure if he would have time to be involved in this riff.  I came up with the idea based on a joke about how you never see anyone die in the G.I. Joe cartoon, and then we would "kill him off" at the beginning of the riff.  I began contacting a few other riffers to see if they would like to join in on this riff to fill his spot.  After some other things came up causing delays in this riff being finished he was able to be part of the riff.  With Kyle back on board the whole bit wasn't going to work, so instead I had the people I asked to co-riff join in on the bit and add another level to the joke.  (The joke being the bit was just a commercial for other iRiff groups within our riff.)  Having Josh Way in the bit really tied everything together.

With 6 people on it, this might be the riff with the highest number of riffers to appear. 

Originally we hoped to have our riff come out the same day that the Blu Ray came out, but due to some last minute fine tuning we opted for a release of the 4th of July.  People everywhere across the United States celebrated the release of this riff by shooting off fireworks, having parties, and forgetting to rate and comment on this riff.

(http://www.bookroomreviews.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/05/new-moon-poster2-692x1024.jpg)
Outright DECLARING itself a "saga" now, this movie asks you to make a choice. Are you Team Jacob, or Team Edward. Because of it's newly minted saga status, this is now a universal decision that will forever change the course of human events, and whole worlds hang in the balance.

This movie is most known for: Being the reason your testicles have receded back into your body.
      Further cementing Mormonism as the one true religion.
      T-shirt sales PLUMMET.

Noted riffs:
I don't know any. Please post some and I will add them here.

About the riff: Here is some info from Zenmichael:
Riffed by myself, Ari Dennis, Christopher Alderman & Kaisha Medford
Written by myself, Kaisha Medford & some assists from J. Wilford Neville
      So when we did Twilight, we were like ... sacred blood pact made in the woods that we'd do New Moon, and outshine all the other groups that did a Twiriff but were just poseurs or whatever. So when it came close to time for New Moon to get released on video, we made a trailer on YouTube that riffed the New Moon trailer, but with some footage of myself, Kaisha and Ari, and posted the hell out of it, and STILL nobody seems to know this exists.
It doesn't help that it came out during the great drought, when the iriffs server was down for like six months. This was the first release we had that was hosted by QuipTracks before iriffs, at the time solely because we needed a place to release it at the same time as the DVD release. I live tweeted that night as I checked our riff against a copy of the movie I'd grabbed from a Redbox. Twilight was at the time our biggest seller, Lizzie McGuire was burning up the charts, I thought we were on our way to DESTINY!  I think we had maybe nine sales that first day, then like ... nothing? Once it was on iriffs, it got a few more trickles, and that's pretty much it.
It's frustrating on a number of levels. On one hand, I think this is PROBABLY our strongest riff we've ever done. We're firing on all cylinders, Twilight is just ridiculously goofy & works well with what we have to offer, and this is still one of our weakest sellers. And during the making of this ... not to gossip, but there are two people whose friendships I nearly lost, and one whose friendship I DID lose. I think the end product is absolutely worth it, but it's not worth it to repeat that process, hence why we're not going to do another "available upon DVD release" product again in the near future.
Two side notes: It was really fun to direct Chris since the first time I did so, with Voyager's "Parallax," I wasn't very confident as a director and he kind of did things in a way that didn't work overall -- totally my fault, I want to make it clear -- so it was nice to do another project with him & have it showcase how damn funny he really is. Also with this one we pretty much let ourselves get as blue as we wanted, but still nowhere near as blue as Lizzie.

Talk about missed potential.  Watchalong came hot right out of the gate with "Night of the Lepus" but didn't really follow it up.   But still this one is a real gem of a riff, great chemistry among the riffers, rapid fire jokes, and lots of signing (in a good way) and giant rabbits to boot.

I'm really seeing the blind spots in my iRiffs watching, I can see plenty I need to get caught up on.

As for what's yet to come, I have 4 in my top 10 I still expect to make the list.  And I'm pretty amazed how high one of them is climbing.

Just to butt in, the guys here don't worry about joke overlap. We talked about it when we first started doing the iRiffs contests (hopefully we'll do another soon). Given certain things happening in front of your face (in a movie, that is) there are always going to be a finite number of places you can "go" for the joke. Eventually some people will go to the same place.

Wooohooo! Another iRiff contest would be great! I know that Riff Raff Theater is pretty much disbanded, but now there are several active groups that have experience gathering and working with submissions.

So, it sounds like they're considering doing another iRiff contest. DG, are you talking about an active group taking submissions and performing a riff to enter into the iRiff contest? Because it sounds like you're talking about a fan-written RiffTrax ala Batman & Robin.

They gave two guys with day jobs two weeks to put it together after the scripts were due, and recorded the final result unedited.

But I digress. Awesome thread! iRiffs deserve a lot more praise and exposure than they get. I'm happy some Riff Raff Theater entries have shown up, and not even my favorites yet! (I was head writer, recording session director, and editor for the later ones, so I didn't include them on my list).

I really liked the Batman and Robin Rifftrax (except for the odd gaps near the end). But I agree with David, it wasn't done as well as it could have been, both on the riffing side, the collection side, and the Rifftrax planning side. It's a learning experience, though, and I think had they followed it up with more, they would have been even better.

I also really think that Rifftrax should have some of the A-list iRiff groups do Rifftrax Presents, even aside from an iRiff contest.

Sorry, I wasn't clear (I try to be brief, and look what happens!  ;) ).  What I was thinking was it would be nice if - in a post-finale' post with a listing of all the winners in order - there were LINKS to your write-ups (as well as direct links to the purchasing pages).  That way people could easily click a title and immediately go to your write-up to read about the film and riffing.  With it just links to your write ups (rather than recopying them) it would keep the size of the final 'summary' post size down, but it would also serve as an interactive index to what you wrote, so people considering one or another iRiff [or, like I just bought last night already: eight of those winners thus far], could immediately be taken to either your descriptions, or to the selling pages.

While not being useful for most other LoCs, that linking back to the write-ups would probably be especially helpful for this list.  For me at least, I see this LoC not just as those of us who contributed a list having fun expressing which of whatever we like, but as a 'recruitment tool'.  By that I mean 'recruiting people to join in and try iRiffs' when they might not, otherwise.   ;D

EDIT: I took on the task of creating this list as I envisioned it.  It will be posted after the final winners are.

(http://movieposters.2038.net/p/Dune.jpg)
The spice must flow! As must the cocaine, eyebrow wax and butt patch filtered urine. This movie features a war between two factions: the special effects department, and the audience's tolerance for bizarre shit. Sure the sandworms are cool, but the lack of Beetlejuice is inexcusable.

This movie is most known for: Sting in blue plastic thong. Vagina faced tequila worms. The notion of killing words, like "Muad'Dib" and "Beiber" and "Twilight".

Noted riffs:
"It's an army of M. Bisons. OF COURSE! two three four..."


About this riff: A word from Ronin: bed. *sigh* A BETTER word from Ronin: boobs. Goddamnit!
Release Date:  August 10, 2010
Riffers:  Ronin Fox and Vamperica
Writers:  James Cruise and RVR II
    This was a unique choice for Ronin Fox Trax for several reasons, the first being it was the first movie I agreed to riff without ever seeing the entire thing.  This movie had defeated me into unconsciousness several times before.  The driving force behind this riff was, unsurprisingly to forum members active at the time, RVR II, who had already written a script for it and contacted me to see if I'd be interested in using it.  Adding my own material and taking on one of the most monumental editing tasks I've ever seen (really, editing six scripts for Masters of the Universe couldn't compete with editing two for this friggin movie) Vamperica and I did verbal battle with perhaps the weirdest movie we've riffed yet.  No matter how strange a movie gets, its hard to compete with pointless cat-milking.

This riff marked the in-riff debut of "Nigel" the sync-fox.  The little fox-puppet had already appeared on most of our posters, but since I had moved out of the old townhouse and my roommate Jen could no longer provide the voice of Shadow, he got a promotion to the microphone. 

(For the curious, his voice came directly from riffing this movie, as I had to constantly imitate Patrick Stewart's character.  Knowing I wanted a British feel for Nigel I started using that impression for Nigel, pitching the voice up in post production...and now the magic is gone, I'm sure.)

Best part of this recording was when a few lines were falling flat during the scene when the Baron pointlessly kills one of his underlings by yanking out his superfluous heart drain plug.  Vamperica, determined to solve the problem, took two takes to improvise a parody of Singin' in the Rain that ended up fitting the action of the scene perfectly.  Really, two takes, a couple minutes of work, and I didn't have to edit it or shift the timing at all.  It was scary and awesome all at once.

Here's how this came about..

Basically, this started out waaay back in the day when Rifftrax had just come into fruition and I originally sent a PM to Mike on MySpace and he replied that he'd look into it.. Never got a follow up response from him.

Then I join the forum 8-9 months later and literally from Day 1 have been requesting this riff of Dune! This includes asking Bill and Kevin during a time when they would take questions on the RiffTrax Blog and Both had acknowledged they would like to do  a riff of Dune but again nothing ever came of it..

Then came the Fan Riffing thread where BTA and I had partnered to bring in other forum member volunteers to help write up a riff for Dune and it had some life for a time but again never became a reality..

So I took it upon myself that the only way this will come about is if I write a script then float it around to a couple iRiffers I had in mind because I liked their style and RoninFox accepted the challenge. He asked if he could re-write some parts and I agreed as it helps to have some additional input for funny lines that a single writer could miss while creating the script and the result was a very funny riff of a classic 80's cheese-fest of a movie!

So, since it seems the RiffTrax trio (M, K, & B) will probably never riff this movie, I am very satisfied to hear my own creation on a trac of it's own 8)

Quiptracks - HULK

Ang Lee SMASH your hopes. In order to contain the raging monster within, Eric Bana takes horse tranquelizers for this role as Bruce Banner. In solidarity, so do the screenwriters and most of the cast, particularly Jennifer Connelly. To counteract this, they hire find Nick Nolte. Who is apparently so destitute he is working merely for a warm place to stay. When the rage plot director says so finally takes over, the Hulk emerges. In all his gummi looking glory. Much digital animal cruelty and poop ensues.

This movie is most known for: Not getting to the damn point for almost an hour. Hobo Nolte. Hulk Hands are awesome!

Noted riffs:
"HULK NEED ADULT!!!"
"Big green thumb."
"Porn stash."

About this riff:
Riffers: Tristan, Tracy
Riffing HULK was a long process. We worked with Ryan over Skype and averaged a minute of material per hour of work. Looking back, I wish we had thinned the script a little—the jokes are extremely dense. Of course that means there's a ton of great lines and you can watch it multiple times and get ones you didn't before. It also has the most clever forward reference we've done, inspired by one of Ryan's lines. The line, which referenced The Forgotten, came when a naked Bruce Banner is stumbling towards Betty: "Ang Lee! Must you dwell on sweaty man-ass?" "I guess he likes to forward reference his movies just like we do." "Do we do that? I'd forgotten." (Ang Lee's next movie was Brokeback Mountain, by the way)

The Earths core has stopped turning. No, seriously, that isn't a Wierd Al knock off of a Journey song. This lack of spinning is a problem, because the planet is a peach, you see. Stop laughing or I'll throw more birds (and fish) at windows! And nuclear weapons are the solution! That's right, now we're talking Hollywood crazy. Speaking of crazy, the government spends millions on a navigation system, so they can figure out where "down" is (clearly they never watched Danger Diabolique). Presumably this entire movie was made so that critics could use the word boring in their reviews and think they are clever.
He he, I'm so clever.


This movie is most known for: Inventing new rules of physics just so it can break them. Five men and Hilary Swank in a hot tube deep beneath the earth, and somehow it does not devolve into a porno. Finding the ugliest guy in Hollywood, calling his character Rat, and giving him closeups.

Noted riffs:
"Was that a fish?"
All the running gags about different miles from the core.
"Hour 43. Serge farts. They crack a window and die."

About this riff:
Riffers: Tristan, Tracy, Cody
I don't remember anything interesting about the production of this riff, but this movie had the funniest blooper of any that we've riffed. During a pigeon attack in London, the birds crash through a window. But if you pause it, you can see that one of them is clearly a large fish thrown against the glass.

What's more fun than getting drunk? Why explosives, of course! This PSA short warns of the dangers of blowing your fingers off with rum, and driving under the influence of gunpowder.


This movie is most known for: Trying (and failing) to do for alcohol what Reefer Madness did for marijuana.
      I can't think think of any more, I'm too wasted on plastique.

Noted riffs:
"What is that, a Fanta? Get the hell out!"
"Hehehe, it's been three hours and Paul's still dead."

About this riff: I pulled Scott Zee, drunk and ranting about squirrels, out of the bar to tell you about this riff he did:
   The 'dynamite' euphamism kinda puts a positive spin on the whole-'Don't do that, you stupid kids!'-message, if you ask me. Sounds like a Schlitz Malt Liquor ad for teens. In the midst of writing for 'A.I.D.', I wrote in the i-Riffs forum that this would be my next riffed short following 'FIRE! Patty Learns What To Do'. One opinionated fellow replied somewhere along the lines of,'Underage teens binge-drinking and car-crashing to then meet with an early grave! HILARIOUS! I'm sure it'll sell alot!' To date, it's still my top selling i-Riff. Nice to prove that guy wrong, but still..weird f*cking people out there (present company included).

Three movies in, and we FINALLY get an icon! Yep, that's right SHELLY is in this one! Yaaay! Oh, and he gives some killer a mask and machete. Wasn't that nice of him? Seeing his fat ass squeezed into a diving suit was less nice, though. And in 3D no less! This movie has more stuff thrown at the screen than tomatoes at a screening of Who's Your Caddy?

This movie is most known for: Jason getting his iconic mask and machete. The cheesiest best use of 3D ever!

Noted riffs:
"Nine dollars in quarters."
Catfish noodling
Dementia Dad
"Don't worry guys, you won't be so upset in about 15 minutes."
"Chee chee chee to to tos."
"Aaaand the outhouse explodes."
(Give me a reason to scream.) --- "FISH broke up!"
"Where's what coming from, nutjob? The fairies you just ran into?"
I loved the discussion about having seen Earnest Scared Stupid. (Yeah, I've seen it too.)
"Oh, look. The paints peeling off the wall. Wonder how that happened?"
(What would a weekend in the country be without sex?)---"Murder free?"
Hippy guy lights up a dooby in the outhouse --- "Aaaand the outhouse explodes."


About this riff: So Gary, what sticks out for you about this one? He he. STICKS out...Gary?
Oh boy, this one was a hoot.  Watching a bad 3D movie in 2D is even worse.  This was also the first time we get to see the iconic Jason mask so needless to say we were itching to get to it.  Arguably my favorite of the Friday’s we’ve done so far.

We had a blast with the opening credits and the 3D puns, though Satan did feel left out.  The most memorable thing about this movie has to be Shelly.  We hate Shelly.  Shelly is the worst.  I wish you were alive so you could die again Shelly!

Dr. Frank Parrish lives a life of adventure! How, you ask? Why, through botany! Yes, his expertise in botany lets him lead a large team of men up the Himalayas, searching for plants the legendary Yeti. Not letting mere frivoluos concerns like the abduction of his teammates wives, or his cameraman's severe alcoholism get in his way. Of course, no legendary creature is a match for a botanist, so the Yeti of course surrenders. Taken back to the United States, the creature escapes (presumably the men holding him were not botanists). Naturally, the police and U.S Armed forces surrender full control to the botanist immediately, and because of this Frank Parrish emerged the victor. Oh, uh, spoilers.

This movie is most known for: Showing the awesome power of botany. This movie and The Day of the Triffids are responsible for the huge boom in botany enrollment in colleges in the 50s and 60s. Showing that Japanese and Sherpas are one and the same.

Noted riffs:
"Pimp struttin'!"
(I think you've got something there.) --- "In fact, it's so great I'm gonna call Doug and Terri in here, and they're gonna drive you home, ok?"
"Did somebody just castrate Wilhelm?"
"Suddenly being a botonist is on th esame level as being a Double O agent."
"Oh crap, Mormons!"


About this riff: Scott Zee has a prepared statement regarding this scandal:
      The first full-length feature riff done by Scott Zee and Co . I can't remember how many times they used that minuscule clip of Lock Martin in the 'costume', having him half-lit, taking those 3 steps towards the camera to signify 'the approach' of the creature. And sometimes running it backwards to signify 'the retreat'. When your title monster is shot in such a manner that it a) reflects the painfully limited film-stock supply for the entire film and b) looks like you shot a chicken-cannon full of daschund pelts at an 7 foot man dipped in mucilage, DON"T MAKE A YETI
MOVIE!..Sasquatch, Bigfoot, Skunk Ape, or otherwise.

An iguana with irradiated hyperthalymous heads to New York to follow in his dreams of playing basketball with the Knicks in Madison Square Garden.
In an apparently unrelated story, the U.S. Military has decided to blow the shit out of New York City.
Inspector Gadget is brought in to stop the military's reign of terror. Unfortunately, after an extensive investigation, he only conclusively proves that Ferris Bueller was a fluke.


This movie is known for: Embarrasing the proud cinematic tradition of a country that makes hentai.
        Definitively letting us know that that is, in fact, a lot of fish.


Noted riffs:
"Ahh... it's a 'suspension of disbelief' bridge!"
"They found out my name is Will!"


About this riff:
Riffers: Tristan, Tracy
      This was the first two-riffer track we did, and as such, it went very quickly... Looking back at it, however, we should have done a bit more re-recording than we did—there are a few outright flubbed lines, which should never happen in a QuipTrack. (Nothing that ruins a line completely, just mispronunciations and things like that). Nevertheless, this has always been a fan favorite, and while our style was not as refined, it definitely did have a lot of great material. The movie itself is awful, of course, and is a major contributor to our current trend of seeking out shorter movies to riff. The Lost World (which is currently down for repairs), Godzilla, Van Helsing, The Core, and Mission Impossible 2 are all over 2 hours, which is especially ridiculous for an effects-driven action movie about a big lizard. This is also the root of Tracy's neurotic fear of helicopters, which has come up a couple of times since.

What happens when you gather several of the most iconic characters from literature? They piss all over Alan Moore, of course. The director of Blade somehow turns a classic graphic novel into a goofy action movie. Never saw that coming.

-In Godzilla, I was sick. You can probably tell I'm hoarse for a lot of it. We had a bit of help writing from future-guest-riffer Matt. He writes... weird lines, but I had to admit I thought they were funny. (lines he wrote include "It's 'Larry' now." and "Goldie! There you are! WAIT! GOLDIIIEEEE!!!")

-After establishing that apparently, in The Core, birds and fish are interchangeable, I very much wanted to make a joke about something being a "red heron", but the opportunity never really presented itself. So sad. We called back to the fish thing in Chun-Li, where M. Bison steals a basket of fish and I ask why he stole those pigeons.

-In HULK, a few great jokes mysteriously disappeared from our script, and we didn't notice until after release. When Petrified Fishstick National Park was destroyed, we had a great joke Darth Geek wrote about a very shocked Ethan Hunt plummeting to his death.

-Lady in the Water is dumb.


Also, whatever happened to Junkyard?

Best riff, thanks to Steve-O: (The files on the league fall into Antarctic waters) "Thus begins mankind's thousand year war against the invisible hydrocephalic vampire penguins and their magnificent platinum nuclear submersibles."

Did not have to look that up.

Nice!

I still can't believe Chris got through that whole thing without tripping himself up.

So when are you guys releasing Armageddon and Day After Tomorrow?

Also, what was the Abe Lincoln riff?

e: I'm back! That was some other guy's car.

Seriously if it ever happens it won't have Chris. (Who lives in Cali now. All the best people live there huh?) And Danuuc's first kid is on the way... Life, ya know?

Also, what was the Abe Lincoln riff?

It was when they were chasing the be-tophatted Mr. Hulk Hyde.
(Riffer 1): He's like Abe Lincoln with Down Syndrome.
(Riffer 2): Maybe they're trying to drive him into the Ford Theatre.

Post by: SJP on March 09, 2012, 01:24:57 PM
Just since it was mentioned earlier that people were looking for the self-congratulatory Oscar-type speeches...and for some reason I couldn't find the clip from Wayne's World 2 with the "I promised I wouldn't cry" bit...so I'll just have to put in a few words.

I will admit, I had essentially started my riffs in 2009 after hearing about the contest, and figured, "Well, why not?  I should give it a shot."  I sort of figured I had no chance of winning, even though that didn't stop me from trying.  After all, look who was already out there...Quiptracks, Ronin Fox Trax, Hor-Riff-ic, Riff Raff Theater, Incognito Cinema Warriors, heck, even That Guy with the Glasses.  Some guy coming out of nowhere, with a track for a movie barely anybody would have owned even then, by himself with no one to bounce gags off if, with a poster and thumbnail that were whipped up in five minutes?  It was practically suicidal to even try.  Still, it was a little disappointing to see I hadn't made it into the finals, but I thought what DID make it deserved to be there, especially after I bought them and tried them out.  But what was even weirder, I didn't let it bother me that much, and even though the riff pretty much burnt me out, a week or so later I was already working on Mortal Kombat.  Sure, it's hard work and there are times it doesn't seem worth the effort, it doesn't pay much, and sometimes it can be heartbreaking to throw everything you've got into something and only see a handful of sales.  But, dammit, I admit it, even three years later it's still FUN.  And I think through it all that's what makes a big difference.

I think that the saddest part of riffing is when truly talented people release their first riff, get discouraged that they don't immediately become a success, and then abandon it.  There are a few ones I've seen that I thought were extremely well done, or at the very least well-written, and the riffer gave up and never released another one after that.  It really is a process that needs to be done for the love of the game, because if you go into it looking to become the fourth coming of MST3K (following Rifftrax and Cinematic Titanic, of course), it's certainly not going to happen overnight, unless you have the world's greatest luck...even if your riff is a work of unparalleled genius, somebody's got to listen to it, after all.  As much as I like to give the movies a hard time, I don't think I well and truly hate any I've done (though Hackers and Legion are probably the most borderline)...if I did, I wouldn't subject myself to them over and over again, especially for a couple of cents per sale.  If I was only in it for the money and the fame and glory, then I'm definitely in the wrong line of work.

But enough gloom.  The point I most want to make with all this endless driveling on is, despite all this time, I still don't think of myself as a big name or anything, even though I've put up quite a few riffs.  I still look at the boards and see Ronin, Hor-Riff-ic, Quiptracks, and even Riff Raff (despite being 'on-hiatus,' as I like to think of it) making the top sales and being the big winners of the riffing game.  So, to find out that not one, but three of mine were considered among the top 50 iRiffs is still something I can't quite wrap my head around.  Thanks to all those who voted, and to those who may be disappointed that they didn't make the lists, don't let that be a discouragement...there are a few I voted for that didn't make the list that I think are fantastic, and as long as you enjoy doing them, keep at it.

Also, I do want to make a very special thanks to Piobman.  At a time when I didn't have much confidence in using Photoshop, he was more than happy to make posters for me, and they're damn good ones at that.  Only a handful of them are not his work, and that's only because I made a promise that I wouldn't foist last-minute "can you do this for me in a day or so" projects on him, which the last two have most certainly been.  He's been more than gentlemanly about them and even did a fantastic DVD cover for American Werewolf in Paris, one that puts my rush job sales poster to shame, and he deserves every bit of praise he can get.   :clap:

Also, yes, I will be adding quotes for the Red Riding Hood riff shortly as well.  However, it should be noted that, thanks to this riff, I would really love to see the movie, "No Country for Oldman," where Gary Oldman seeks out those who didn't like "Sid & Nancy."

To anyone interested:

I've got the iRiff LoC winners Index filled in to the present (every winner from 11-50).  [I've needed something to distract me from the pain from a tooth that is clearly telling me it needs a root canal.  :P]  Basically I have the Index set up so that clicking on the title takes the person to Darth Geek's great write-up of that film/iRiff, and then on the same line as each of those is a "BUY" link that can be clicked that takes the person clicking it to the iRiff catalog page to buy the film/riffing.  [All links derived from what DG has done.  I'm claiming no 'new' content here, just consolidating and condensing a tiny portion of it.]

In other words, for those who remember it, I've got the list we discussed on page 13 of this thread covered.  So no-one else needs to try to do it.  And as soon as I get the info for the final 10, I'll put the index up in this thread.  [And Darth Geek, you may want to add the Index to the opening post of the thread when the thread all wraps up, so there's an Index at both the front and near the end of it.  (Your choice, of course, you're the host... I'm just 'bringing the bottle of wine to go with dinner'.  ;))  That way people finding this thread in the future can easily see who the winners were, and find ANY of your write-ups and the purchase pages for them all, right out of the gate.]


I only did this TINY bit of work (compared to the effort involved in making all the write-ups and collecting all the pictures and links from all over hell), and I'm exhausted.  I have always known (from doing similar types of things, but related to my work in years past) that the effort that goes into these LoCs is TREMENDOUS.  And I just want to, once again, thank you Darth Geek, for doing such a great job, making this not only 'educational' and 'functional' but fun to read as well!   :clap:

Quiptracks - Van Helsing
(Total Points: 72    Number of Lists: 5  Highest Ranking: #1 Darth Geek)
(http://www.quiptracks.com/zencart/images/QTMark.png)
(http://www.quiptracks.com/freebies/stickers/McQ_VanHelsing.png)
(http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/5/55/Van_Helsing_poster.jpg/220px-Van_Helsing_poster.jpg)
Swinging: The Movie. In order to test her newfound nigh-bulletproof skin, Kate Bekinsale pits herself against Dracula, Werewolves and Frankenstein. With the help of Wolverine, a fellow healing factor mutant, she hurls herself through every window, smashes against trees, and plummets from high places. Sadly, her weakness is a confy chair. Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition.


Movie is most known for: Slavish atention to historic detail. A Gas powered semi-automatic crossbow. Spandex in 1887.
      The silliest, worst acted vampires since...Twilight.

Noted riffs:
"Who lights these things.. and why"
"Oh it's Ye old missile silo."
"You know you're a newb when you get beat by a guy armed with a bell."
"I hope he picks his nose and blows his head off."
"Meanwhile, the Nina's haulin' ass."
"*heavy breathing* These horses were a gyp. We're not going faster at all."
"The people on the dance floor are starting to get bored. Pass out more glow sticks!"
"And monks who lay with townie chicks will feel crustaceans bite. Now what could that mean?"
"Slow lightning. I'll say. It doesn't even know to strike the highest point."
"Oh, the vampire extinguisher!"


About this riff:
   Quiptracks didn't write anything for this riff for some reason, so I will. This is, BAR NONE, the greatest iRiff I have EVER watched, and the best of the best from Quiptracks, who are the best of the best. I put this riff up there with MST3K and Rifftrax at their peak. I so wish there was a sample of this one to show you even a piece of this.

Edit: Here is Tracy to show us how it's done:
     Van Helsing was dad's (Kevin's) idea. He wrote a lot of it while the rest of us were still finishing up Sky Captain. Van Helsing is one of the only movies we've done that hurt. I couldn't stand to watch it, and I didn't want to do it, but we powered through and it ended up as a fan favorite. What I like about this one is that, because dad wrote the first draft essentially, a lot of his style of humor came through and it worked really well with this movie in particular. One of my favorite lines is his "See, I'm so clumsy, I can't do things like this." which I think is the perfect way to draw attention to how ridiculous Van Helsing leaping from horse to horse is.
Also, this track has no "Whoops, banana peel!"

A movie, based on a book, based on a Mormon woman's desire for necrophilia. An entire movie devoted to justifying teenage girls' vacuousness and desire for dangerous, creepy guys. Naturally, it was a smash hit.


Movie most known for: Sparkly vampires.
          Sparkly dildos that you can chill in the fridge before you use them.
          Making fat male nerds at Comic Con wearing homemade Wonder Woman costumes call hot teenage girls stupid.

Noted riffs:
"I have a condition!"
"Rubber balls bounce higher than hamsters!"


About this riff: Zenmichael fills us in on the details:
Riffers Zenmichael, Joshua Robinson, Kaisha Medford.
Written by all of the above.
    So the genesis: Kaisha kept telling me we should riff "Twilight," and I was like, 'no, we'd go crazy. It just looks boring, not fun boring.' Then I happened to be trapped at a friend's house where they were watching a torrent of the movie about two weeks before its DVD release. I saw all the awkward silences & weird moments & hairstyles and was like, WE COULD DO THIS. Quickly we mobilized and started throwing stuff together. I remember I think I worked a 38-hour week at work and slept maybe four hours a night because every other second was devoted to Twilight that second week. It was intense. And there are some jokes in there I still don't get, but which I just said to hell with it, let's do it. I think it still holds up; it gets a little weak in the late second / early third act, but pulls itself together by the end. I was really scared about letting others write on something we did. Not because I think I'm a genius (though obviously I am!), but simply because I wanted our stuff to have a consistent "feel," and I was worried that might be lost if others worked on it. To me it's blatantly obvious which jokes are mine & which aren't, BUT I think with me editing it still works, and others seemed to dig this as well.
Here was the kind of line across which some were and weren't willing to jump, as far as "adult content" went. What's funny is, you should've seen Josh's original first five minutes of riffs. It was like NOTHING but semen jokes & every line had an F-bomb in it, etc. I was like, NO NO NO NO, we have to keep this PG-13 like the film! I remember we had like a 7-minute discussion about whether the "human come" gag crossed a line. I was like, 'well, it's the ONLY risque joke in there, so it's fine.' Then we had reviews that were like, 'This is the filthiest thing I've ever heard! Awesome!' And I was like, MAN, my barometer is WAYYYY different than other people's. To me, it's a film ABOUT two teenagers NOT having sex. That means it's fair game to joke about all the sex they're not having. Also, it's a film about an abusive relationship. How do you riff this movie & not talk about sex?!? Still, this film kind of gained us a reputation as a "dirty" riff group, which is fine by me, though I never really agreed with that assessment.

Turkey Shoot - Spooks Run Wild
(Total Points: 73    Number of Lists: 5  Highest Ranking: #1 Asbestos Bill)

(http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51FR2ZCAX3L._SL500_AA300_.jpg)
This movie stars The East Side Kids, six of the most annoying reasons ever to move to the west side.
These six "kids" (read: guys in their late twenties) are being watched over by two adults who clearly realize that the sooner these losers escape and get eaten by badgers, the better off the country is. So naturally they escape with no resistance. They wander around a cemetary and one of them gets shot. This movie is off to a good start, right? Well, no. We aren't that lucky. Because "wacky hijinks" are bound and goddamn DETURMINED they will ensue, ragardless of what happens or any pleading by the audience. Bela Legosi is in town, along with his mini-me. Morons get scared, nobody laughs, and the audience is denied a refund.


Movie is most known for: Bela Legosi embarrasing himself WITHOUT the aid of Ed Wood.
        Showing that not all comedy troups from the 30s and 40s were Laurel and Hardy or The Three Stooges. Some are gladly left in obscurity where they belong.


Noted riffs:
"Uh oh. Substandard brainpans vs. barbed wire. They don't have a hope in hell here, do they?"
"David Lynch's Fantasy Island."
"What?! These two aren't dead yet? I find that highly unlikely."
"Oh great. It's the hilarious antics of the extra Y chromosome gang."
"Oh that was my morning wood. It creaks."
"Ernie the muppet is dead. Long live Ernie."
"I wonder if GE makes a 60 watt candle."
"Routine 86! Beat him with his own midget! Use the big end!"
"Yeah, take Hank there with you. He's good bear decoy. You can easily outrun him."
(What are we gonna do with him?)---"How's your pitching arm? I got a nutty idea."
"Ugh, this new Freddy Krueger sucks."
"Oy! Uh, uh. I'm never doing recon again. You...you a-hole." (as with most of Scott Zee's riffs, it's all in the delivery)
"Even the scenery is tired of working with these knobs."
"I have notified a rape crisis center."
"I read the news today, oh boy"


About this riff: Scott Zee was kind enough to take time out of his busy day of botany related fame and fortune to give us this:
     The Turkey Shoot's second feature..or was it our fifth? Starring the Bowery Boys as the East-side Kids back when they were closer to being kids somewhere 'round the 25-30 age.
Also starring Bela Lugosi as Count 'How the F*ck Did I Get To Such A Lull In My Career?'-ula. Any-boo, the boys match wits with the nefarious Lugosi in a spooky mansion near an ominous old cemetary.This schlock took alot of what I like to call 'Porn Breaks' to finaly weather through. Oh!..By the way..that reminds me,..it's time for a 'Porn Break'.

Available on Netflix Instant? Unnecessary, it is VOD.

(http://www.movie-list.com/posters/big/zoom/nightmareonelmstreet3.jpg)
The third in the long running Nightmare on Elm Street series. Coming down pretty hard on the "nature" side in the "nature vs. nurture" argument, this movie presents us with the real origin of Freddy Krueger. It also shows us the worst run insane asylum since that time Arkham tried the honor system for about five minutes.
Yet more kids are being tormented and killed by Freddy in their dreams. The answer to this? Drugs!
The kids try to control themselves in their dreams. This goes about as well as can be expected, since they are teenagers and can't even control themselves in the real world. Awesome puppet death ensues.


Movie most known for: Combining the genres of "nun porn" and "gangbang porn" in a theatrically released film. Making Freddy even more quipy and less scary.

Noted riffs:
Sister Potato Chip
Giant remote control
Bourbon hose!

About this riff:
Release Date:  June 24, 2009
Riffers:  Ronin Fox and Anais.Jude
Writers:  James Cruise, Andrea Krottner, and Scott H
      The first riff of the Nightmare on Elm Street to debut on iRiffs (the first two were originally free tracks that predate iRiffs) Part 3 "DREEEEEEEEM WAAAARIAAAAAAHHHSS!" was a great way to recover from having already seen Part 2.
      Nightmare 3 was one of the movies in the series I actually watched several time before I started riffing.  The gathering of kid-rejects showing off their dream-powers was just like pure distilled 80s.

   Quiptracks didn't write anything for this riff for some reason...

I'll talk about it briefly, then. Van Helsing was dad's (Kevin's) idea. He wrote a lot of it while the rest of us were still finishing up Sky Captain. Van Helsing is one of the only movies we've done that hurt. I couldn't stand to watch it, and I didn't want to do it, but we powered through and it ended up as a fan favorite. What I like about this one is that, because dad wrote the first draft essentially, a lot of his style of humor came through and it worked really well with this movie in particular. One of my favorite lines is his "See, I'm so clumsy, I can't do things like this." which I think is the perfect way to draw attention to how ridiculous Van Helsing leaping from horse to horse is.

Also, this track has no "Whoops, banana peel!"

Answers the age old question nobody asked: "What if Lizzy Borden was a kindly old grandma?" Oh, right, spoilers.
The story of teeanagers at a summer camp trying to get laid, but being thwarted by a concerned mother. Since when did the Christian Coalition start funding horror movies?
Yes, Kevin Bacon is in this. They are so proud of that fact, they even have an arrow pointing him out.

Movie most noted for: This along with Halloween are the origins of the slasher movie. A horror movie genre that became immensely popular in the 80s and remains so to this day. Yeah, I don't get it, either.
    Inventing "strip monopoly". And then not actually going through with it.

Noted riffs:
"Come on stud, I want you to Kum in my Bayah. Eww.."
"Present day!"
"Ooh! They should have marked that package as fragile."
"All right, TNI ...wait...nevermind."
"Will you slow down! This camera weighs a ton!"
(Go.) "Packers." (Go.) "Packers."
The "hello"s kept just getting funnier and funnier.
I loved the riffs about the light objects she puts against the door. "Feathers. I need feathers!"


About this riff: Um... Gary is getting that whole "throbby vein in his forehead" thing again because I keep disturbing him in his shack out back. So lets ask Erin:
   Ah, our first victim.  Just a couple of goofy killers with no clue how to record a track, write a script, or perform.  That being said it was still a big success and ego boost for us and spurred us on to continue to make more tracks. 

We recently remade this track based on the live performance we gave at Demicon.  It’s much punchier, fuller, louder, and generally more professional.  We were without our Satanic sidekick originally for this one, so we had to do all the sync lines ourselves (something Erin hates btw). 

Our favorite riffs from this one had to be the “Crazy Ralph” jokes.  Go….Packers!  You’re out of Peaches! Etc.

An expedition to take a man in a mokey suit back into the wild of Congo to be with his own kind, other men in monkey suits. Unfortuantely, those men in mokey suits are really assholes, and try to kill everyone.  But before we get to that, there is lots and lots of propaganda on how corrupt African nations are. Culminating in an international incident involving an insane militia leader and his Sesame Cake.
There are lasers, that other guy from Ghostbusters, Ash, and Tim Curry. Yet somehow it's a movie and not fanfic on deviantArt.


Movie most known for: Insultingly implying that Bruce Campbell came from the loins of Joe Don Baker.

(Total Points: 72    Number of Lists: 5  Highest Ranking: #1 Darth Geek)

This was the riff that got me into iRiffs in the first place, thanks to Darth Geek's recommendation. Still one of my all time favorites.

This was also a high ranking one for me.  This is a riff that had me sold because Van Helsing, as silly as it is, is a movie I just enjoy watching, and this is also where even the sample nearly had me on the floor just from the over-the-top Igor impression and the endless parade of gags about the place looking like a techno dance club.  This was later topped by the scene where the villagers are storming the castle...I had to actually stop the riff for a few minutes and catch my breath.

There are riffs I have loved before and since, but this was the first to almost kill me watching it, and I'm glad it ranked as high as it did.  While I normally find myself leaning towards a more deadpan approach to riffing myself and like it in others, Quiptracks can do manic like very few groups can, and in something like Van Helsing, that's catching lightning in a bottle.

Turkey Shoot - Squeak the Squirrel

(http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y107/saintsammy/TurkeyLogo.jpg)
(http://blogs.smithsonianmag.com/movies/files/2011/08/Squeak_the_Squirrel.jpg)
Partly a documentary on how squirrels are so smart that they will eventually outsmart us and lay waste to the human world. And partly 'Exhibit A' on the mistreatment one dickish "scientist" puts a squirrel through for his own enjoyment, which is the reason squirrels hate us so much and will eventually lay waste to the human world.

This movie is most known for: Showing that sometimes guys in labcoats aren't really "scientists", they are just those assholes who played keepaway with your lunch in high school, all grown up.
      Squirrels are still cute, even when they are really frustrated.

Noted riffs:
"If you'll excuse me, I've gotta go squeak the squirrel"
"It's going to be hard to pass this string."
"Nine Years?!"
"Speed kills, Squeek."
"It is not of the body, Squeak, you must STERILIZE!"
(Do you think his whiskers would tickle your hand?) --- "The tendrils release several neurotoxins. Death is immediate."
"I heard this scene was incorporated into Saw 2. I wonder if there's any truth to that."
(Now for another new problem.) --- "Butane!"


About this riff: Unfortunately, I don't seem to see Scott Zee around anywhere right now. So lets gets some comments from Squeak the squirrel himself:
   Sensored for extremely vulgar content.
Oh! Oh, God! That was...horrible. Dear God in heaven. That was just- Oh, here's Scott Zee, thank goodness. So Scott, what can you tell us about the adventures of this...very disturbing...squirrel:
   A fan favorite. 'Fan' truly meaning singular here. It's everything you ever wanted to know about the clever gold-mantled ground squirrel, how it observes it's environment, and solves multi-tier tasks using it's ever-learning, rodential intelligence and a Colt Lawman 357 with only 2 rounds. Got too bloody towards the end for my likes. Still can't believe it. Last 3 minutes of this riff is complete silence.

The first movie filmed entirely in slow motion. A giant gas cloud/electrical storm thingy in space is annihilating everything in it's path. Unable to send The Ghostbusters or even a mediocre Fantastic Four, the Federation sends their most irresponsible captain (known mostly for screwing anything that moves) and his ship full of expendable crew after it. Somehow, this is the plot to a major motion picture, not the setup for a dirty joke.
After years of fanboys talking about how awesone and fun their little sci-fi show was, the rest of the world finally gets a chance to see what the hoopla is all about. And a collective "Huh?" ensues.


Movie most known for: Starting our collective nerd hard-on for bald chicks.
     William Shatner's ego finally hits the 60 foot silver screen, and it's STILL not big enough!

Noted riffs:
"Ah, finally, the fanboy equivalent of a Playboy centerfold"
"With the scaffolding as those annoying staples."
"Spock had more charisma in that episode where he lost his brain."
"It's impossibe to get lost if you have no idea where you're going."
"Spock block!"


About this riff:
Release Date:  November 5 or 6, 2008
Riffers:  Ronin Fox and DraCCu
Writers:  James Cruise and Shane Tourtellotte

The first Ronin Fox Trax to be available on iRiffs, released the first day iRiffs was open to the public, and still to this day RFT's top seller.  Overall this was the fourth riff I worked on, and I took on Star Trek 1 for two reasons.  First, I really thought it was the most deserving Trek movie for blasting.  Yeah, part 5 was an obvious choice and I loved the Rifftrax for it, but The "Motion" Picture was just much much worse.  Secondly, I took it on as a personal challenge.  One of the problems I kept coming up with on my first few riffs was leaving open space, especially toward the end.  I figured if I could overcome that problem on a movie with about 90% open space I could overcome it with any movie.  Really, that was never an issue with this riff, thanks to the huge contribution of Shane "Scrivener" Tourtellotte of PS Productions fame.

Random cries of "Spock Block" rang out all throughout the house for long after this riff came out, and every time I see the Vulcan salute in any incarnation of Trek it always pops back into mind.

A one sided propaganda movie funded by the Veloceraptor lobby and the gasoline industry. It shows that Veloceraptors are more badass than their bitter rivals the Knicks T-Rex, and that all problems really stem from greedy fat white men, not dinosaurs.

Movie most known for: Being partly responsible for the overabundance of CGI in movies these days. Dinosaur eating a lawyer on a toilet.

Noted riffs:
"You don't see too many three stall unisex bathrooms anymore. I'm more upset by the fact that those toilets weren't hooked up to anything."
"Bow down before Coragale, God of Boxes! May he return us to Sender..."


About this riff: Tracy lets all in on a secret to improving your love life:
    Jurassic Park was our first riff. Originally, before Rifftrax, Cody and I were planning to do "MST4K". Doctor Forrester's great grandson discovered Deep 13 (That was the second line of the theme song, BTW). This was going to be played by our science teacher, who was way too awesome for our crappy school. We spent the summer of '06 building three functioning bots. Mine, Ozzie Q, is my avatar. Cody's was named Pops Macentire, and was mostly made from a popcorn maker. The third was G6, which was supposed to be a prototype for Gypsy. It was pretty similar. I have pictures if anybody cares to see them.

Anyway, the track took a bit of a backseat to all this stuff, and we barely wrote on it at all. After hearing about how Rifftrax did things (a method we had considered and dismissed once already, humorously), we decided to switch formats and record an mp3. We came up with the name QuipTracks in the intro, and wrote as we went, going over one scene over and over until we felt it was alright and then recording it. THAT TRACK SUCKED, so we did it again a few years later. This was still before Rifftrax did the movie.

Last year, we decided that Jurassic Park v.2 no longer represented our current skill level, and we were cringing every time somebody downloaded it, like "they're not coming back". Since, as one of our free tracks, Jurassic Park was an "ambassador QuipTrack", it was important to us that it be one of our best. Version 3 is almost completely new. We cut everything that wasn't REALLY funny and filled in all the gaps. When it was done, it was something we were proud to showcase.

I imagine watching all three versions in a row and seeing the huge difference between now and then would be really interesting, but I don't think I can stand to ever watch that first version again. One of the most baffling things of my life was a girl I barely knew who watched the first track and sent me an email saying how incredibly funny it was and how all her friends wanted to meet me. That thing? Seriously?

(http://content9.flixster.com/movie/11/12/30/11123067_det.jpg)
Based on a highly regarded anime cartoon. But forget all that, this is an M. Night Shyamalan movie! Ang is "The Last Airbender". He was an Avatar, until James Cameron sued him and took his blue body. So all he has left is his blue "you are here" arrow on his head. Because that makes him easy to find, he is captured a lot. Many elements are bent, physics is broken, and basic storytelling is teabagged.


Movie is most known for: Penis hairdo.
     More expositional dialog than The Creeping Terror.
     Sequel baiting worse than Super Mario Brothers.
     Somehow making Tai Chi style movements look even sillier.

Noted riffs:
"They lost him already!?"
"What are they doing? They're stompin' the yard!" (a great riff on one of the goofiest things in this alltogether goofy movie)
"This movie had people running out of the theater for all sorts of reasons."
"The "You're not our usual Kibuki guy" riff got funnier each time they said it."
"I demand a turn on the gyroball thingy!"
"I wonder if they ever found the beef?"
"NO SPRINGS!"


About this riff:
   The second one we worked on while it was in theaters. We used a pirated copy this time, which was easier to work with than just audio, but it was really bad quality and there was actually some stuff that we hadn't noticed before when we got the DVD because the guy who filmed it in the theater wasn't getting the whole frame. With this one, Rifftrax released first, which allowed us to see the somewhat disappointed reviews, and that spurred us on. One of the things people mentioned was the lack of a joke about the princess' penis head when they first get to the Northern water tribe, so we quickly wrote a line for that... ("Impressive phallus--er PALACE you have here.")

We also watched the first season of the original show to prepare, the first 3/4 of which was very hit and miss. By the end, however, it was starting to get really good and it really made apparent how badly M. Night botched the adaptation. When Aang (pronounced "ang," not "ahng") enters the spirit world, there are, you know, SPIRITS there. Not ONE dragon. And at the end, when he activates his Avatar state, he becomes a towering water elemental and slaps the Fire Nation armada around like toy ships in a bathtub. He doesn't lift a wave of water over them and then set it back down.

Anyway. The movie sucked a lot is what I'm saying.

(http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/c/c7/TheLizziemcguiremovie.jpg/220px-TheLizziemcguiremovie.jpg)

A movie based on a TV Show. I think that was based on a book: Stupid Shit My Tween Says. The TV show centered around a vapid teenage girl wreaking ego fueled havoc in an American high school with the help of her animated minion. The movie really turns things on it's head by being centered around a vapid teenage girl wreaking ego fueled havoc in Rome with the help of her animated minion.
She almost got a writing credit because she once said "Hey, wouldn't it be great if you, like, paid for me to go to Italy."

Movie most known for: The oh so satisfying sight of a dweeby guy named Gordo getting blueballed.
    Thousands of years of gorgeous Italian architecture and rich culture, all culminating in a Disney jailbait picture.

Noted riffs:
Benadryl
The switch to the ‘real’ commentary.
Jaundice!!! - AWARD: Highest Degree of Difficulty
"I'm gonna' either diddle myself or vomit... maybe both." "Sweet! That is exactly the effect this movie should have!"
"She's stuck in exposition mode!"
"She squeaks a lot... does she have Tupperware in her throat?"
(Promise me...)  "...you'll lie for me in court."
"She is wearing pure, uncut Disney style!"
[Filmed in Italy]  "I keep looking for the Wolfram and Hart building."
"Who did the foley on this?  It sounds like a dubbed Gamera film."
The interplay during the entire 'choking up' sequence during the finale.
closing 'Thank yous' by the riffers: "...and a special fuck you to all the cartoon alteregos out there."


About this riff:
Riffers: Ari Dennis & myself
Written: Me ("Soap Box Derby" co-written by us)

And now, your moment of Zenmichael:
    So back when I thought we were going to be doing JUST Voyager, I looked forward to the riff of "Threshold," kind of commonly believed to be one of the worst moments in Trek history ever. My idea was, just go nuts with it, just do it balls-to-the-wall, NC-17, disgustingly overdone gonzo jokes. The perfect person to do this with, I thought, was my best friend, roommate,  and Jason's wife, Ari. She and I have the same humor and are just pretty much really like this all the time (check out the end credits' outtakes section to hear us just hanging out). Once I realized it would be FOREVER before we reached that point in Voyager, I started thinking what else might be good to riff in that way. I thought the Hannah Montana Movie might be fun, but it wasn't on video yet. I mentioned this to someone, who said, 'I think they made a Lizzie McGuire movie,' and I was like, 'really?' A little research later, and, bam! It existed! I remember this was incredibly easy to write, EXCEPT for the montages, of which there are MANY. This was probably the most finely honed writing I've ever done on a riff. There was the constant question of, 'is this blue for the sake of blue? Or is this also funny? And do I care?' I also paid a lot of attention to trying to refine the dynamic between Ari and myself (my kind of final idea was: Ari is dumb when it comes to everything ... EXCEPT sex. Then I'm the moron).
I always kind of assumed this would only appeal to a VERY select audience, and am shocked to this day to find that it's always kind of battling it out with Twilight as our top seller. People REALLY seem to enjoy it, which is gratifying, even if it is the least favorite of our feature-length riffs we've done for me personally.

A movie about a sweaty barechested musclebound man and his Harry Knowles troll. Driving around in a pink Cadillac searching for a musical spiky phallic shaped object. All the while being persued by an overly theatrical man made of bone. With no gay overtones.

Movie most known for: Courtney Cox embarrasing herself even more than Jennifer Aniston in Leprechaun.
     Gloriously hammy performance by Frank Langella as Skeletor.

Noted riffs:
"He pulled his acting muscle."
Chevy Van Ribs
"Zen dwarf bullshit!"


About this riff:
Release date:  March 13, 2009
Riffers:  Ronin Fox, DraCCu and Anais.Jude
Writers:  James Cruise, Christopher Wyer, Mike 5150, D.B. Barnes, David and Alissa Krottner, Andrea Krottner and Matt Hampton, @ScottOTD

    Ronin Fox steps to the podium to accept his trophy medal cash award plaque food stamps satisfaction of a job well done, and gives his acceptance speach:

   This riff was huge for us.  It was our first open submission riff, and we got a ton of great material out of our contributors.  It was also kind of a homecoming for me.  Since the first riff I ever recorded was an animated He-Man movie, riffing the live-action adaptation was like a sign that things were getting bigger and better.  It was also a chance to rewatch and old guilty pleasure movie and share with the world the absolute joy that is Frank Langella chewing up one of the biggest sets ever constructed for a bad movie.

   Wanting to make this one special and get as many diverse voices as possible to go along with the various sources of the jokes, I decided this one should be a three person riff, which caused several problems involving only having one microphone, two good headsets, and a first choice of riffers including a couple friends who promptly dropped off the face of the Earth for months after I first gave them the completed script.  Luckily, DraCCu and Anais stepped up and saved the day.  The most interesting recording session came on February 22nd, when the three of us had to stop making fun of Frank Langella so we could go into the living room and cheer him on, hoping he would win the Academy Award for playing Nixon.

WOO! Congrats. I'm glad that Quiptracks is so well represented in this. I'm proud to be a part of something that so many people enjoy. It all started with a dream. Me and Quirk built some pretty rockin' bots, and wanted to do a full MST3k sort of thing. When we found out about Rifftrax and the like, we did our thing. Here we are today, with nearly everyone of our tracks voted in the top 50!

Thank you, all of you, who voted for us. Really means a lot. I'd also like to thank my parents, Carl Weathers, and Jonathan Hendrix for all his coachly words of inspiration.

Congrats to everybody on the list. Having every QuipTrack that's currently available make the list is awesome. It was also great to see the riffs I voted for show up and get some exposure.

By the way, DG, that was a great use of your time at the con. :D

Thanks. I had a good time doing this list. I'm glad you seem to like my silly decriptions and whatnot. It did take A LOT more time to put together than I thought when I volunteered for it (and when I was cojoled into upping it to Top 50).


EDIT: Awesome, thanks for the links, LucasM.

I hope everyone can get that link to the video to work. It is the first time for me uploading video.

About that:
I went to the Monster Mania convention in Cherry Hill NJ this weekend, and just happened to see her at one of the signing booths. She was really nice, and did this for me at the spur of the moment, even though she clearly didn't know exactly what I was refering to.

Great job (as I've said before  :)).

You're welcome.  I actually had both "buy" options you gave for all of the ones that were available from more than one source, but the post got rejected because of "too many characters".   :P

In light of THIS POST (http://forum.rifftrax.com/index.php?topic=23725.msg705612#msg705612), what is written in this next paragraph has been changed: So the links were edited down to: all QuipTracks riffings links lead to the QuipTracks pages, all others lead to the iRiff pages (with the exception of Fun With Flicks - Laser Mission, where I kept the Amazon DVD link).  I wish I could have kept both for all of them, but that would have resulted in the Index being split in 1/2, and that just didn't seem right.

Wow!  Just plain wow!  I actually lost track of Masters of the Universe there, and thought it had come up already. I was excited enough when I figured that Star Trek made the top 5, but damn that just blew my mind. Hearing Meg Foster actually congratulate us, even if she doesn't know what for, is among the coolest things I've ever heard. Thank you to everyone who voted!  I haven't been posing in here a lot, but this really has been amazing.

An inelegant solution, but just so they are handy for people (and since I did take the time to add them in), here are all the 'dual-source purchasing' riffings.  That way, if someone's buying a bunch from one place or another, they can choose which 'Cart' to add them into.

However, please see this post HERE (http://forum.rifftrax.com/index.php?topic=23725.msg705612#msg705612) to see why you should choose the option presented in the original Index if at all possible.

I don't want to sound like a douche, but if you buy TreacheRiffs, Ice on Mars, or Turkey Shoot stuff from our site, we'll actually pay them when they've accumulated a reasonable amount. I've heard from Michael Bradley that Rifftrax isn't paying at all anymore.

Here's the list I submitted.  Since all but three of them made it into the final list, the winners are in bold, the ones that didn't make it are italic and in brackets.

I was very pleased to see that my number 1 pick was only four points from being the #1 winner here!  This is the most 'successful' LoC voting that I've ever done, with so many of my picks being on the final list.

1.  Ice on Mars - The Lizzie McGuire Movie  [This is potentially only matched in 'funny' by my #2 pick.]
2.  QuipTracks - The Core  [One of the funniest riffings I've ever heard by anyone.]
3.  Short:   JK - Linda's Film on Menstruation  [Without question the funniest riffing of a short I've ever seen by anyone.]
4.  QuipTracks - Godzilla
5.  ART - Beauty and the Beast *
6.  Ice on Mars - The Karate Kid
7.  QuipTracks - Hulk
8.  Ice on Mars - Twilight

9.  [['Short':   Atomic Treatment - Gateways to the Mind w/ short - Fitting Faces]]
10.  QuipTracks - The Last Airbender
11.  QuipTracks - MI-2
12.  QuipTracks - The Forgotten
13.  QuipTracks - Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow
14.  Ice on Mars - Twilight [2] New Moon
15.  RiffRaff Theater - I, Robot

16.  [[PS Productions - Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan]]
17.  QuipTracks - Lost World - Jurassic Park [2]
18.  QuipTracks - Van Helsing
19.  QuipTracks - Jurassic Park

20.  [[Raven's Riffs - Twilight]]
21.  QuipTracks - Signs
22.  RiffRaff Theater - League of Extraordinary Gentlemen
23.  QuipTracks - Dragonball - Evolution
24.  QuipTracks - Equilibrium
25.  QuipTracks - Street Fighter - The Legend of Chun-Li


*  [[I tried ART's 'Kung-Fu Panda', but the synchronization bell was SO loud that it triggered my PTSD and I couldn't hear either the film or the riffing as I was so on-edge, braced for the next bell.  It may be quite funny.  I have no idea, as I ended up stopping trying to watch/listen after about 15-20 minutes.]]

I don't want to sound like a douche, but if you buy TreacheRiffs, Ice on Mars, or Turkey Shoot stuff from our site, we'll actually pay them when they've accumulated a reasonable amount. I've heard from Michael Bradley that Rifftrax isn't paying at all anymore.

Thank you for that info.  I've gone back and edited the original index so that the QuipTracks site is showing for all those where 'double-site-purchasing' was an option.  I changed to that from the 'automatic' RiffTrax site link, since only one would fit in the character-size-limit for the post.

I think people should get paid what they are entitled to.  And I agree with Darth Geek: I hope RiffTrax is able to fix whatever problems they are having, so that others will be likely to submit their riffings here in the future.


Please - anyone - let me know [maybe in a PM so as not to clutter the thread] if I missed any, or if any links are broken or incorrect.  Thanks!

Post by: SJP on March 10, 2012, 10:52:44 PM
Unfortunately, my list only exists in the PM I sent to Darth Geek, about 2 minutes before the deadline, so unfortunately I can't recall the order of the ones I put on there (it was only a top 11 list, though I did have a few extra side lists as well).  But I did want to take a moment to endorse a handful of ones that made lists, but didn't make the top 50.

Yor - Garrett Gilchrist
This didn't make my list because of a major technical issue...namely, the jokes are so densely packed in that it is obvious that they were recorded and edited in later, since there isn't even time for a breath to be taken before the next gag begins, which took me out of the moment.  However, what actually IS in there is very well written, and I do think it's a mighty shame Garrett only recorded two tracks before disappearing once more into the ether.  And now that Yor is actually readily available on DVD (which it was not at the time he recorded this), it should get more recognition than it does.

mr. b natural - Cat Women on the Moon
This one definitely caught me by surprise, because it was one that won me over on a second viewing.  Like a lot of MST3K episodes, I had it on in the background while I was doing other things the first time I played it, but the second time around I actually viewed it intently, and it was very enjoyable.  Mr. b is a very laid back riffer, and it is a style that grows on you, where you don't even notice it until you realize you've bought two or three more to watch.  "Them!" was also fun, but if you're willing to try him out, this is definitely the place to start.

Heated Seats - Marked for Death
For those of you who know SmilinJackRoss from the forums, he started up a riffing group and has a handful of titles under his belt.  It was a close call between this and Runaway, but I went with this one because the movie itself is a much more ludicrous affair, and the ending riffs were all the more fun as the insanity grew by leaps and bounds.  Not sure if this one is streaming...I had to grab a copy of the movie from work to watch it, myself...but they keep getting better with every release.

Phantom Empire Chapter - Corny Commentaries
I actually enjoy the serial crossover specials by everybody, but this one has a special place in my heart...namely, "Shoooo-oooes!"  I can't explain it, that line gets me every time.  But if you've never been privy to the Lost City/Phantom Empire serials (and since none of the individual episodes made it into the top 50), each chapter is done by a different riffing group, each with wildly (and most of the time hysterical) results.  Be sure to collect the whole set!

But congrats to Ronin!  That Meg Foster video is quite the endorsement.  And to everyone else who did make the list, a very hearty thumbs up!

To be clear, it's only on stuff that's been put up in the past year or so that there aren't payments coming. I'm assuming all the stuff older than that works fine, but anything put up in the last year or so just shows $0 across the board, and that's what we're getting paid. For instance, Pack of Briefs #2 sold about 15 in its first few weeks up. We should be making a little under $1 apiece on that. Day of the Triffids sold about 25 in its first couple of weeks, which should've garnered us well over $25. But they both show $0. I wrote support@rifftrax.com about this, and they told me that it was just a problem w/the display on our end, that we would still be paid, but that was last April or so, and nothing. /shrug/ I'm not in it for the money, and it's one check, basically, but, yeah, it's a little frustrating.

My list. It has my favorite lines from them quoted. Spoilered for size

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

A few obscure riffers got pushed off the list and I felt bad since my list is dominated by only a few elite groups. I felt they weren't amazing, but they were promising, so...
Mini-list: Best first efforts
Terminator by SAPPtrax
Godzilla by Skulls in the Stars
The Mummy by Tom and Jon

On a side note, I'm starting to wish somebody would invent, like, a store... but instead of selling movies, you can just pay like a dollar or two to only have it for a few days. And they'd have a bunch of old movies, too... That kind of thing would be really helpful for watching all these riffs.

Thank you for the heads-up.  Hmmm... so basically it's just a roundabout way of getting back here?  :)  Well, since there's a link on that page to get back to the iRiffs purchase page, I just left it in the main Index.  [Who knows, maybe people will stop while they are there and try some other things too.  ;D]  But I DID remove the duplicate from the 'dual-availability Index supplement' post, since they both end up back here.

Thanks for all you folks who voted for my stuff. I'm arranging your Moneygrams as this is being written. Oh that reminds me,..

'MONEYGRAM ..With over a quarter million locations to serve you. Sign up for your Moneygram REWARDS card today.'

I'm not getting paid for this plug or anything, I just really, really like Moneygram. There's no postage to pay. And the other guy actually has to get up and out of bed and go to the Mall or Shop N' Save to get it. So it's good excercise. Excercise where you get money halfway through your regimen.

Also I'm reading a spike in my i-Riff's sales overview. It's 1!! A solid 1!! WE DID IT! We did it everyone! Took awhile but we finally got there! We now have our first sale of 2012!!

So many blessings to count. So little time. Love and respect to all. We might have something new for you here in the next little while. Definitely if there's a contest.  That would be the main motivation. We may even come up with a t-shirt or a keychain. Or some kind of reusable decal you could just put on a shirt or keychain. The possibilities are endless. Enjoy your Sunday. Make every minute count, cuz you do matter. Yes you.. The one in the back... You!

Later my peeps..

Seriously, thanks to everyone who voted for our stuff. I know we haven't come out with anything in quite awhile, and I'm so seriously stoked that people still dig our stuff after such a long hiatus. If anyone's curious, we DO have items in the works, there are just ... many things ... stopping them from getting done. Mostly my own laziness, I freely admit, and the fact that YouTube shut down our page and blah blah blah. I've been doing incredibly geeky book reviews etc. on YouTube under the new name of rolereviewsal so if anyone is like, 'man, *I* want to listen to Michael blather on about geeky subjects for hours and hours,' YOUR MOMENT HAS ARRIVED.

Also, I've been helping out with some QuipTracks stuff on the side. Who could forget all my additions to "Signs"? (read: "bears." Literally the word "bears")

A big thing this list did was make me sad all over again that Ari's not my friend anymore ... but c'est la vie. And we've been raiding even more high schools with promise of drink and stardom if--I mean, uh ... HARVESTING NEW TALENT ... so all should be good in the future!

I'd never even heard of Turkey Shoot before this. That's another one I'll have to try. I guess that was the whole point of this list though, to find out what's worth trying.

I wanted to try Masters of the Universe. I bought the track, but I couldn't find a copy of the DVD. I tried downloading it, but it just didn't sync up.

Anyway, this was a fantastic LoC. My favorite to date in fact. Great job Darth Geek!  :clap: :clap: And thank you to the surprisingly high number of people who participated.

The Accountant (who's awesome BTW), is driving on the wrong side of the road, on a two lane highway... on a BRIDGE. And there is absolutely no one else on the road.

And there was a similar riff earlier "Apparently Colorado is deserted"

Zero? I can only speak for myself but for me it's mostly because I haven't heard your stuff. I'm not a big anime fan and while I do buy films that Mike & Co riff that I don't already own, I just stick to stuff that I already own for iRiffs. And that unfortunately leaves out a big chunk of your catalog. And if I don't watch it, I didn't rate it. Sorry.

I don't see why they wouldn't count. Seems to me that any riff made by people not previously associated with MST3K should have been fair game. The only only reason I didn't vote for any is for the simple fact that I've never tried them.

Incognito Cinema Warriors XP - Bride of the Gorilla
(Total Points: 20    Number of Lists: 1  Highest Ranking: #2 Asbestos Bill)

(http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/7/7d/Bride-of-the-Gorilla.jpg/220px-Bride-of-the-Gorilla.jpg)
*sigh*Nothing good ever comes of a Voodoo curse, you ever notice that? Barney (not the dinosaur, but this movie would be a LOT more funny if it was) is a plantation owner with a hot wife. At least UNTIL a voodoo woman curses him and turns him into a monkey. How has this movie never been remade with Rob Schneider?

This movie is most known for: Being the real inpiration for "You'll never make a monkey out of me! Oh my God, I was wrong. It was Earth all along! You finally made a monkey (Yes you finally made a monkey) Yes you finally made a monkey out of meeeee!"

Noted riffs:
Unfound. Fans, post some, and I will put them here.
 
About the group: I am unfamiliar with Incognito Cinama Warriors myself, but they predate iRiffs by a year or two. And they seem to be one of the only groups that does a true MST3K type experience, with characters, robot puppets, silhouettes, a premis and everything. They also specialize in obscure movies (usually public domain it seems), and they sell DVDs that they ship in the mail. No syncing neccessary!

Purchase: http://www.icwxp.com/Merch/BrideProductPage.html

Available on Netflix Instant? Unnecessary, it is a DVD.
 
Sample: Couldn't find one.

Soon as the eagle screams next week, this is without a doubt the first new iRiff slurp I'll be sucking down the pipe.  Rikk Wolf & Co. are genii of the sickest most wonderful sort.

I'll try to find out as I am a HUGE ICWXP fan and have been having a long email convo with Rikk and Co. The amazing thing to me about it - besides the great production values, excellent props, etc. is that the whole thing is a serial story, not JUST movie riffing.  I'd even have to say that they beat MST3K at that...as blasphemous as that may be.

Yeah, they were real resistant to it which is a shame since that was their best season and they did such a good job with it.  They were very imaginative and innovative and WAY more interesting then just being stuck in one place being taughted by people living on Earth.  That was one time they were wrong about the direction of their show.  They may not have wanted to do it but they did it very well.  I could understand wanting to do skits that were related more to the movie of the week but how much longer did we really want to watch the evil people beat up on their minions from a dank lair?

COMPLETELY DISAGREE. Those arcs are painfully unfunny. I skip the vast majority of Pearl/Mike interactions. I much prefer the hit or miss nature of the movie-based segments to the always embarrassingly awful Sci-Fi story arc segments.
Title: Re: Top 50 iRiffs
Post by: mattwnelson on June 06, 2012, 08:47:17 PM
It was hit-or-miss for me on the story arc segments. The Roman Times one, for example, did nothing for me really. Several of the Space Children ones really made me laugh, though. The ones where Pearl is trying to get mad scientist accreditation went back-and-forth; some bits good, others not so good.

The real reason they didn't work well was the one that the creators gave: without watching the episodes in sequence, the story arcs made little sense, and often had to shoehorn in recap material to help the viewer, which took away needed funny times. ICWXP doesn't have this problem, because they're releasing their episodes with the express intent of sequential viewing, so they can plan their host segments accordingly.
Title: Re: Top 50 iRiffs
Post by: Darth Geek on June 07, 2012, 06:26:26 AM
I thought they did a very good job given their limited budget and time for the running arc stories. Pearl was mostly annoying, but she did have her moments. Bobo was consisatntly funny, and I really loved the Ape World set that looked like a zoo exibit. I wish they had spent more time there. Brain Guy was awesome.
And they still did random host segments on the SOL too.
I agree that the channel screwed them over by insisting on this, and then running them out of order anyway. But I don't blame the brains for this.

Title: Re: Top 50 iRiffs
Post by: mr.b.natural on June 07, 2012, 10:51:08 AM
Part of it might be that season 8 was my introduction to MST3K and I admit there were some real bad skits.  But I like I said, how long did we want to watch the "mad scientist" hit/injure/kill their assistant over and over?  I never have been one for slapstick and I guess I just feel the arcs forced them to be more creative. 

I also admit that it was more fun when the skits were related to the movie (like Mike's song for Girl in the Gold Boots) but if one really wanted to argue that the old way is better I would ask that you reexamine season 6 whose skits were usually just bizarre and/or just loud.  There were some greats of course but in general they left me saying "this season's host segments are just weird."

I just want to mention the names of the top two iRiff creators other than ICWXP that I have been enjoying the hell out of lately:

1. Just Andrew.  He seems now to be completely inactive, having mentioned at one point on a page here that he had a new baby in the family - which will do that sort of thing.  Those iRiffs he's done, particularly War of the Robots and Warning From Space, were great. I bought his entire catalogue...primarily because Andrew carries things off on his own pretty well.  This is not easy in iRiffs, as a rule, for me to enjoy.

2. Atomic Treatment. This is sometimes just Bryan Sample, sometimes him being joined by Mr. B Natural.  I like the duo pieces better, particularly Sons of Hercules Vs. The Mole Men, but Sample can do a one-man job, too...although not with Andrew's attitude and humor.  I like the way the later pieces are interspersed with "commercial breaks" showing ancient TV ads, also riffed.  AT does appear to still be active, which is nice.

Thanks!  Just to clarify Bryan Sample is "Mr.B.Natural" and Mr.B.Natural is me.  Atomic Treatment goes by Pezdrake here on the forum but during our joint riffs he introduces himself as Mandrake.  We each have our own brands which include separate joint riffs as well as solo riffs.  Our Sons of Hercules Vs. The Mole Men joint riff was sold under my brand while our joint riff for Hercules at the Center of the Earth is sold under his brand.  We do it this way so we each make money and so our separate brands remain alive.

If the movie has commercials, begins with the Atomic Treatment's theme music video, and do not contain introductions then they were produced by Atomic Treatment and sold under his brand.  If the movie has an introduction and no commercials then it is one that I produced and sold under my brand.

And yes, we are both still active.  In fact we are more than halfway done with our latest VOD for Zontar: The Thing From Venus.

Do you have any favorite solo riffs or ours?  My riff of Them! (my only non-VOD) is particularly good while Atomic Treatment has some great short films including "To Enrich Mankind."

I hadda think this one over for a few days...but I'd hafta say: it's a tie between Them! and War of the Planets (aka "{Moving} Pictures of Matchstick Men".)  ;D ;D ;D

Even though I had to sync the former myself, which I pointed out in another thread is usually a deal-breaker for me, I bought it, which I hardly ever do. Definitely was worth both the money and the trouble!

Interesting note about War of the Planets...One of my favourite Just Andrew riffjobs was done on a film called War of the Robots - and I'd bet all of the contents of my stashbox (which hasn't been as empty as it once was these days, happily) that this film and War of the Planets were made by the same people.  (I'll have to go check the credits.)  There was just so much in common with it stylistically, plus at the very beginning of both films, I could swear the same wooden building exterior shows up.  The music is almost exactly the same.  The plots were both convoluted, unfigureoutable and lame - in short, perfect riff fodder.  The irony: though robots - androids, to be specific - appear in War of the Robots, it seemed to me that the title War of the Planets seems to fit THAT film much more than the one named War of the Robots, and verse vice-a. 

Thanks for straightening out the whole business with your name vis-a-vis Atomic Treatment, and correcting my spelling of "Bryan Sample". 

Ooooo, Zontar! I'm definitely looking forward to that one: another childhood "watch whenever the reruns were on" movie.  And you're doing this with Atomic Treatment? If you drop me a PM when it's done, I'll buy it in a New York nanosecond.  :D

Thanks for the reminder, I've been meaning to get around to watching the riff of Them! for ages. Sadly, it's the various other "Them" titles that are on Netflix Instant and not this one. But I bumped it up a little in the rotation. The downside to having a netflix que of like 80 movies.

For 'Them!' I managed to get the film off of Turner Classic Movies (i.e. 'legally free' as I have DVRs that record to DVD) RIGHT after I'd first heard about the 'Them!' iRiff (literally: it was on TCM within three days of hearing about the riffing!) so it worked out perfectly for me. :)

For older films, and even some younger ones, keep an eye out on TCM.  I go to their website listing for the month [HERE (http://www.tcm.com/schedule/monthly.html) (link goes to each new month as the month starts)] ...I go to their website as close to the beginning of every month as I can remember to, and make note of what to set the DVR/DVD-recorder to record for the month.

It's awesome.  As to be expected from your material.  There were many, many laugh-out-loud moments. 

Did you notice Zontar is a remake of MST3K'd badfilm (third-season, if I recall) classic It Conquered the World? I watched Zontar as a child but somehow never made the connection when I saw the other.  But now that I'm so familiar with MST3K episodes I realised it's like the same movie with different actors, in colour...sometimes, even the lines are the same.

I got Superargo when it first came out.  I think it's a big laugh that the cinemas are full of a movie called Argo these days.  WTF does "Argo" mean anyway? It seems like the base word for the word "argosy" which, if I recall correctly, means either "adventure" or "something carried by a ship".  I have to go look this up now...

Zontar is ready and available for purchase!

It's awesome.  As to be expected from your material.  There were many, many laugh-out-loud moments. 

Did you notice Zontar is a remake of MST3K'd badfilm (third-season, if I recall) classic It Conquered the World? I watched Zontar as a child but somehow never made the connection when I saw the other.  But now that I'm so familiar with MST3K episodes I realised it's like the same movie with different actors, in colour...sometimes, even the lines are the same.

Thanks!  I'm glad you liked it.  iRiffs are a lot of work so it is nice to get a little feedback every now and then.  And yes, we did notice that.  That is why we make so many Peter Graves jokes and I mention him in the description. 

Not sure what the deal is with Argo but for a time I was trying to conceive of a joke that basically said our Argo was better than Ben Affleck's because it was "Super."  The joke never quite came together.

Your Argo was better than Ben Affleck's because there was no Ben Affleck.

I can't even put into words how awesome and unexpected it is to see this come in at #2. I had it at #2 and seriously considered putting it at #1. Hive fives to everyone who recognized the genius of this riff.  :highfive: Simply awesome. Oh, and I declare this the winner of the Highest Degree of Difficulty Award.

Wow! This is unexpected...but incredibly awesome and very much deserved. Easily my favorite of all the RFT riffs. It was the perfect storm of having the right movie and the right riffers come together for pure comedy gold.

Having written extensively for this riff, imma take a moment to bask in the glory just a little...*bask* *bask* *bask* - DAT BASK!!!

Huge congrats to Ronin, anais, DraCCu, and all the writers.

I know I'm really late on this, but I just saw it for the first time (In my defense, I just started moving from the top 5 "general discussion" threads to the rest of the forum) and I just wanted to say that I'm proud to even have ANYTHING to do with the MOTU riff and just say thanks to Ronin for how helpful he was in telling me how to do it. It was forever ago, but for something that was such a pain to do, it sure was a lot of fun and one of my favorite memories.

Glad it was a good experience, and it gave us some great results.  While its hard to listen to those riffs now and pick out who wrote what, I do remember that I had a lot of fun reading through your script.  Considering how much fun that riff was anyway, the fact that anything stood out in the experience should say something.

Thanks again sir. Any time you have another open script, I'd love to try another. A couple of friends from here and I tried to do one for the movie Signs, but that ended quickly after one or all of us saw something shiny (I think the xbox was involved) :) In closing, anyone want about 3 pages of signs jokes? :D
