Title: Next live show on 8/15! Starship Troopers!
Post by: myothernamewastaken on May 25, 2013, 01:45:56 AM
I didn't see a thread for this, so I hope it was okay to start one.  This should be a great one with "Starship Troopers!" 

I REALLY want to get one ticket to this, but I've never had any luck in the past as the show always sells out in minutes before I've even found out that they've gone on sale, despite checking constantly, which is surely a testament to how awesome the Rifftrax gang is and how many fans they have.  And now they're saying that the kickstarter donors are going to get first dibs, and seeing as how many they're were, these are going to be sold out before they even go on sale to the general public.  I mean, I understand why they're giving the donors first dibs as a way to say "thanks," but I also support Rifftrax by buying every VOD they do.

Maybe some year I'll get to see them live, but it's looking like it's not going to be this year.

Look forward to see what short they include.  Maybe another Norman?  Something totally different?

I think this might be a two and a half hour show. Even with lopping out the end credits, ST clocks in at two hours.  DO NOT EDIT THE BOOBS AND BUG GUTS, DAMMIT.

Considering the Kickstartery nature of it, I think a 7:30 (hell, you could even go at 7) start time could be feasible. Make it a special night.
Title: Re: Next live show on 8/15! Starship Troopers!
Post by: Darth Geek on May 26, 2013, 10:05:56 PM
Yeah, I really hope they don't edit it. Either for time or to get rid of anything.

Post by: Raven on May 31, 2013, 05:59:27 PM
Sorry I missed the kickstarter campaign.  I went to one of the live events in San Fran but my sister lives a half hour from nashiville.  It would be a good reason to go visit her but I'm not likely to get tickets.

Good movie choice too.  Hopefully they won't be editing it down and we'll at least get an mp3 too.

...and we'll at least get an mp3 too.

I hope for this, too! I think they should do a studio MP3 for Starship Troopers regardless of whether they can release a VOD of the live show or not. I'll buy them both!

Post by: CJones on June 01, 2013, 10:46:04 AM
Honestly, I'm much more interested in seeing them riff Starship Troopers than Twilight again. ST has been on my "most wanted riffs" list for a while now. Just don't edit it. I doubt we'll see a studio version, but it would be nice.
Title: Re: Next live show on 8/15! Starship Troopers!
Post by: NRRork on June 04, 2013, 01:08:49 PM
They just said on facebook that it's not an edited version-- apparently Sony wouldn't allow an edited version or something.

But that was the first I'd heard of this Starship Troopers riff. So, dang, count me in! I'll be there on August 15, man.

Luckily, the theater in my town never sells out for these shows, but they get pretty good attendance.
Title: Re: Next live show on 8/15! Starship Troopers!
Post by: myothernamewastaken on June 04, 2013, 08:00:34 PM
Apparently from what I've heard, the tickets are all gone as they were made available to the kickstarter donors first.

Post by: skyroniter on June 05, 2013, 07:34:23 PM
I managed to get tickets but they don't have seat numbers assigned. Is this a general admission event?
Title: Re: Next live show on 8/15! Starship Troopers!
Post by: Conor on June 06, 2013, 08:05:33 AM
Yes, they are gen admin. Everyone is guaranteed a seat obviously, but a line always starts forming a few hours before the event.

Has a list of theatres come out as to where the live event will be broadcasted to? I live in Phoenix, AZ and I was wondering if there was a theatre here it will be shown on.

Neither Fathom nor AMC have it listed yet.
Title: Re: Next live show on 8/15! Starship Troopers!
Post by: KidFlash on June 12, 2013, 03:54:10 PM
I recall that Manos tickets went on sale at the end of June last year via Fandango, and that Birdemic went on sale at the beginning of August. So no worries yet.

(That reminds me - have there been any rumblings of a Halloween show? Or is that being withheld until they make an appearance at Comic-Con?)
Title: Re: Next live show on 8/15! Starship Troopers!

Kickstarter backers will have first dibs at tickets for the theater simulcasts nationwide (and in Canada!) beginning tomorrow (6/26), and the on-sale date for the general public is this Friday (6/28).  That comes from the latest Kickstarter update.

Phoenix is always Desert Ridge, and it's also jolly good fun!  I suggest hitting the Yardhouse first, for some sliders and a cold one.  (Yes, I have a Rifftrax tradition.)
Title: Re: Next live show on 8/15! Starship Troopers!

Anyone know where in Canada it's going to be available? The main ticketing site requires a Zip code.

If they're doing that, they did a lousy job of it, since it seems to be up and running right now on Fandango. I contributed, so I could be wrong - but it seems anybody can access it.

I just purchased my ticket minutes ago, so if anyone else is going to the AMC Aventura 24 in Aventura, FL for the event, I hope to see you there!  :highfive:

Likewise. However, if I get the VOD and extra shorts, I'll be happy with my purchase.

They have not confirmed a VOD yet.   Last talk of VOD was that negotiations were ongoing with $ony to get the rights to release it digitally.

Yeah, I can't get off work on the 15th.  If there's no VOD, I threw away some money.  It's okay, though, I'm actually happy to show support to the guys.

I wonder if an mp3 riff of Troopers might be considered as a consolation if the digital rights can't be secured...

Not cool. I won't be able to go because that's the day I return from a trip to Disney World. While it may be technically possible for me to go, I doubt I'll want to do any such thing after 18 hours in a minivan with my wife and 3 kids.

It was one of the Kickstarter rewards.  They originally hoped to do it for Twilight.

Maybe Sony will let them do it.  If not, maybe an MP3.  That would be good for me.

don't get me wrong if a vod, vod dvd, or mp3 comes out I will get it.

I'm also very happy that its playing in Canada. Makes me more happy it's playing at the VIP theatre with tables by your seat and a licensed bar. I think I'll be having a glass of wine with my popcorn.

Finally getting to go to the live show in Tennessee (CANNOT wait!!!), and wondering if there's been any word on whether or not there will be any kind of meet and greet, autograph signing, an opportunity to heap praise upon Mike, Kevin, and Bill, etc.  I heard sometimes in the past they have, but not always, so just hoping there's a little something this time around.  Driving in from Chicago, so I hope there will be even just a little bitty something.

Yeah, I'm stoked for this. Or, I was. See, I was all set to leave in about an hour, but then I saw that THE SMURFS 2 is playing as well. So, damn, I'm torn, my friends.

Nah, it should be cool. I'm actually seeing it with a friend for once. I had to go see Manos and Birdemic on my own, because all of my friends who were interested in seeing it had school or work that night >_<. This should be interesting, though, because the friend I'm seeing it with really digs this movie, whereas I only saw it once when it first came out, and I only thought it was okay. But I was in like 10th grade then, so, now that I'm older I suspect I'll pick up on the satire more.

Looking forward to the mp3 so I can hear all of the riffs that I missed because the movie drowned them out!

This!  45 minutes later and my ears are still hurting.

I'd say the big stadium type theater in Wilmington was about 70% full.  Got to meet Darth Geek and Thrifty there.

Did they skip the $125 donor group list at the end?  Or did I miss it while looking at them doing stuff in the background?  That working Crow puppet was pretty cool looking...

The Gorilla-Grams were a nice touch.  Block out the nude scenes to please those who objected to them, but do so in the context of a wacky joke so that the people against censoring them wouldn't be offended.

I like the movie too.  It obviously doesn't take itself seriously at all.  The guys made it more enjoyable than usual, of course.  First full length riff I've watched in a while and I had a great time.

Was a bit let down to be honest.  Not with the movie or the riffs, but it just didn't feel like a live show.   No guests.  No shorts.  Just "Here's the movie, here's two distractions for nude scenes so we don't get a hard rating, have a nice night"

I watched the movie the night before so I could concentrate on the riffs (not that it helped with many of them being drowned out by the movie), what they did with the shower scene was probably way more funny than doing any kind of riffing.  That scene is a bunch of people in the shower just saying why they joined the military.  Without the boobs and butts it would be the most boring scene in the movie.

Agree with Mrs. Dick, the RAID! line was a great, and Mike's "my wedding vows" line was a killer, his delivery there was perfect.

It was funny that they did so much to cover up the nude scenes, but they still showed enough of the scene with them in the sleeping bag that we do see her tits.
I noticed this too, but I figured...they were going for PG-13ish and I think they still conformed to that pretty well.

Loved it. The mix during the loud parts was a bit annoying, but there were so many good parts. So glad we are getting a studio version.

That 'wedding vows line'......my boyfriend and I immediately looked to each other and we knew....that line was going to be in our future vows. We even debated on who would get to say it lol.

Loved it! I agree with everyone else about the audio mixing. Waaay too loud. I couldn't hear a lot of the riffs during the battle sequences. I loved all the guilty faces they gave after making fun of some of the actors that were watching. Wow, that Denise Richards sure is something, huh? I'm pretty sure she's an automaton.

Favorite riffs:

"Good one, General!"

"Oh no!  Our casas, and our familias!"(said in most American accent ever)

"...as she goes number two?"

"Ah, my wedding vows."

"Thigh-vagina's coming in nicely!"

Pretty much everything about Busey (especially during the green fiddle scene)

Pretty much everything about stalker Diz


I wonder if it was something about the theater I was in that made me not notice the mixing problem, because I am apparently the only person here who didn't.

There were a few mixing issues at our theater, but I didn't really think it was too bad.  A couple lines got drowned out, but not many.  Maybe I was just listening closer (I sometimes work in noisy places, so maybe my job has trained me for this sort of thing).

Yeah, for me the mix itself only sucked during the really loud movie parts.... but the audio in its entirety was shrill (treble levels) and piercingly loud throughout.

It was good fun though!

There was a Starfox reference that had me rolling.

It's too bad that Sony won't cave on the VOD because that was a performance to savor.

As a long-time Starfox fan, I cheered loudly at that line.

Seriously, screw Slippy.

Huh?  I read that review and it doesn't say they did too many of those riffs, the movie has many long segments where that is the only dialog, so they had to do some riffs to point that out.  But I only remember 2.

Just reading that they will be remixing the audio for the rebroadcast.  That probably increases my chances of going out to see it, but I might try a different theater (King Of Prussia instead of Wilmington), and bring ear plugs just in case...

They referenced the "80%" line.  Don't think they overdid it on the show though.  I remember less jokes for Troopers along those lines than in Space Mutiny.

Okay, before I go see this for the apparent last time ever, I have a question.

At the risk of repeating a previously-asked question, could the riffing soundtrack be legally released?  I realize that it would take a massive load of cash and a miracle to get the rights to release the full production, wouldn't the riffing be exempt from such an arrangement?

No audio from the live show will be released.  They are going to release a studio mp3 (sometime before November since it's a Kickstarter perk), they can't release audio from the live show since it would have audio from the movie and they couldn't get the rights to do that.

Perhaps maybe if they just found a way to filter out the movie audio.... I feel like we've had this conversation before.

Glad to hear that they will be making a studio mp3 of this. While I'm actually going to this showing, I'd like to be able to hear the riffs again.

Still haven't decided if I'm going tonight, for these encores with the 7:30 start time, does that include the half hour of slides and music?  So the riffing would start at 8 like it did when live?  Getting to King Of Prussia at 8 would be a bit easier than 7:30...

I guess they didn't do the 10 minutes of fathom and theater ads either, got to the theater about 7:45 and they were already about 10 minutes into the movie.  Probably only about 40 people in the big theater so I still got a good seat.

MUCH better audio mix, picked up many more riffs this time through.

They did run the usual Fathom previews, along with the pre-show title cards.  The only thing they didn't run, at least where I was watching, was the transmission test using footage from "Jack the Giant Killer".

I agree that the sound mix was better this time.  And it's still some of the funniest riffing they've ever done; I'm not sure they could truly duplicate it with a studio-recorded sound file.

A question: it looked like they re-did the one-screen thanks to the Kickstarter contributors.  Did they?

Yup, during the live run they forgot to add the $125 group, that was fixed for the encore.  Looks like they had to run them a little faster and add some extra background footage since that was a long list.

I did see my name this time.  And I got a few laughs and comments on the Kickstarter T-Shirt, so that was cool.  Had the same thing happen the first time I had it on last month, in my local Wawa of all places.
