Title: so what will the rifftrax Kickstarter do this year
Post by: Henry88 on February 07, 2018, 05:46:49 PM
a new year brings a new  Kickstarter campaign whenever they decide to start it, hoping for some good stuff this year.

Sadly I am currently unemployed, so I probably won't be able to back it this year, but the last two years haven't been very international-backer-friendly anyway.

If you sign up for their $3 a month Drip thingy, they've promised to give their subscribers the skinny early. As of yet, all we know about is one Kickstarter reward. And it's a tangible thing that can be shipped places, so there's that.

We kicked it. It's started. Stop coming to the fans begging for money every year.

This is how they secure funding and rights for the live shows. The days where every live show is a rerun of an old VoD are gone because of the annual Kickstarters. I'm OK with passing the ol' plate around every year if it keeps big(ger) name releases coming and guest riffers from MST3K coming back.

Have they ever said a MP3 of the Five Doctors was going to be released? The one never riffed before movie title from last year can't be revisited...

It hasn't been announced, but considering that The Room and Mothra got turned into MP3s, I'll be shocked if we don't get a Doctor Who: The Five Doctors MP3 anytime soon…

It'll probably be a stretch goal, along with the three or four MP3s we get this year.

I normally don't like redos, but I'd be ok with that.

They usually pile on some more as stretch goals. Wouldn't be surprised if it happened again this year.

I'm down for a Space Mutiny Re-Riff. Never seen Krull, but my lovely wife informs me I'm in for a treat.

It does feel like we're getting fewer live shows out of this than we have in years past.

As am I. Though I usually don't like reriffs, I'm actually not one who was impressed with the beloved MST3K episode.

They're already offering the MP3 as a backer reward, so at least it won't be completely unviewable by the rest of the world this time.

A little disapointed that they're going for a movie that was on my short list of targets, but working so slow I might not have gotten to it for years anyway. Looking forward to seeing what they do with it.

Don't let that stop you. I liked your riff of Wizard of Oz as much as the Rifftrax version.

I'm not going to completely discount doing it in the future, but it's a little harder for me to write something original when I've already seen a riff of it. I don't want to have to keep another window with the Rifftrax in it to soothe my paranoia that I'm accidentally copying something.

I shall take solace in this but there's something special about the interaction at the live shows that will be missed. Krull should be a good one.

Also take solace in the fact that they record the live show whether or not they can release it, so there's a small chance that they may be able to release it in the future.

I do descend in a hot air balloon to a non-existent island once and a while, and next week I'll be taking a plane to New York with a bunch of chorus girls I just hired--who knows where I'll end up.

Krull! Alright. About time they did a Liam Neeson movie. And with Robbie Coltrane to boot, it's sure to be great. They are actors that always deliver.

Oh, wait, they were just background guys. Ken Marshall was the lead. I wonder if the casting director ever drinks himself stupid on missing the actual talent on hand and pushing the lack of talent instead. (And yes, I saw Krull both in the theater, and then later in life when I recognized the pair.)

As a side note, Liam and Captain Picard himself were in full plate swinging axes and swords in Excaliber. Funny how some secondary actors in major films go on to outshine the flash in the pan leads that get the big parts.

Side note to your Excaliberian side note: You're certainly right, often true, but true for Excaliber insofar as the guy who played Arthur is concerned. Helen Mirren is no flash in a pan. And neither was Nicol Williamson who did some other good work albeit mostly on stage (he was considered one of the best ever Hamlet's in England). He was really amazing in a 1969 film titled Inadmissible Evidence, an intense portrayal  of a misanthrope's breakdown.

Yikes, Forgot about Mirren. Shameful of me. Williamson is an outstanding actor, but never hit the big time like the other 3. Still loved him in an old Columbo back in the day. Only other thing I saw the lead from Excaliber in was an episode of Dr. Who. Tennet version I think.

And we're almost at the success  mark. Want to see the stretch goals which I'm sure the have lined up.

Stretch Goals!!! (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/rifftrax/rifftrax-live-2018-space-mutiny-and-krull/posts/2127274) Bet $1 and you'll be likely to get back more than you've given to Rifftrax! This is such a good deal it makes bargains look like ripoffs! Someone alert Retro Muppet Pastor about this!

One of the VIPs for Space Mutiny just became available again. Just in case anyone was feeling down for not jumping on it in time, here's a second bite at the apple. And no, I don't mean the terrible musical 'The Apple' which was already riffed

They just added some new backer-based stretch goals, including Kevin riffing Space Mutiny as Space Santa and Ready Player One and Solo: A Star Wars Story Just the Jokes riffs.

Presumably at least Solo is a sure thing since the Star Wars stuff are big sellers.

Well it's in reach now.

At the current pace the Han Solo riff should be unlocked as well.

(https://www.kicktraq.com/projects/rifftrax/rifftrax-live-2018-space-mutiny-and-krull/dailybackers.png)

The last day of any kickstarter is usually the second highest so there should be 700+ backers to reach the 9000 required.
