Title: Rank-a-Riff
Post by: BathTub on April 13, 2007, 08:51:15 AM
Worthy of Wonka? or Slugworth?

Definitely worthy of Wonka. "British or just insane?"

Pretty good trax! I though NPH had some good zingers and I did have some laugh out loud moments!

Personally, one of the best. N.P.H, Mike, I applaud thee.  :clap:

NPH was hilarious! One of the best tracks yet!

Slow start, solid everything-else. :^) Neil Patrick Harris feels like he BELONGS in Rifftrax right away.

I agree, I would like to see Neil Patrick Harris in more Rifftrax.

A strong niner. Harris not only got the tone, but had some great deliveries. I mean, I kinda knew he had timing, what with him being the only thing I can stand about HIMYM and he was really great when he visited Letterman a few months back. But I still wasn't expecting that good a showing from a newbie.

I gave it a 9.  Splendid Riffs throughout (particularly at the beginning, I thought) and great chemistry between the two guys make this one of favourites.

Excellent Riff  :clap:

NP Harris should be included when they do "The Omen" riff.

On a serious note. I still think one of the finest moments in movie history is when Charlie sets the everlasting gobstopper on Wonka's desk.

Top O' The Mark for this one.  In my top 2 nudging out, ever so slightly, "Phantom Menace."  Neil was a great riffer!  Invite him back!

I haven't watched the last six Rifftrax or so (it's hard to keep up they're crankin' em out so fast), but as Willie Wonka is one of my favorite movies, I went out of my way to get this one watched.  I have to say, I was rather disappointed.  Neil did a great job, especially for his first time, but (as my brother put it) Mike seemed to be "phoning it in."  I didn't have any laugh-out-loud moments, as I did with ST: Undiscovered Country, Roadhouse, XxX and several others.  In fact, now that I think about it, the earlier Rifftrax are definitely my favorites.

Best Rifftrax I've ever seen. Beats out Top Gun.

A solid 8 in my books.  The only one I've ranked higher than an 8 was Battlefield Earth.  I love them all but I like to leave room for the truly great ones.  The Disembaudio Laugh Track did it for me in BE.

A solid eight. Neil Patrick Harris has some great timing, and he falls right into it well. I was worried about riffing on a comedy which isn't even that bad, but they just made it an enjoyable rifftrax to an enjoyable movie. Something extra to a movie that terrified me as a child.

For my three bucks, the BEST of the whole lot so far, including the Mike/Bill/Kevin riffs.  Nice rythm, on-target observations, obscure references...just a great track.

Umm, which one did you think you were voting on?
Title: Re: Rank-a-Riff
Post by: pyro on May 21, 2007, 06:25:45 PM
possibly the best in my book

I think this was one of the darkest rifftraxs yet. very very good! :clap:

I *thoroughly* enjoyed this one. Neil and Mike just had excellent timing and some compelling lines. As always, the fat jokes were boring and predictable, but few and far between, so thank you for that. One of my Rifftrax favourites.

My favorite line when I watched it was "Ed Bagley used to drive a car like that." and it is mostly because I can't imagine anyone having a ridiculous auto like that.  Priceless.  Or more accurately, 2.99.

Excellent riffing!  Neil Patrick Harris was perfect, as if a veteran riffer.  He must return.  I read the book and Charlie was NOT a sap!  This movie certainly had it coming.   Actually Tim Burton's Charlie was perfect, his Willie Wonka (or Johnny Depp's) was closer to the truth too.

By far my favourite Rifftrax yet- I was belly-laughing throughout :D

I gave it a nine with MN's start being a bit rough.  NPH was great.

I'd love to see NPH come back and do Starship Troopers with the entire crew.
