Title: 2 Suck 2 Riff
Post by: menacingphantom on May 17, 2008, 12:01:42 PM
I have to say, given what a downright awful movie Ep1 is, I was pretty disappointed with the Riff. 

Did they phone it in? 

Or is the movie just too horrible to riff?  Seriously... I'd like to know how they feel about the success of the riff.

I really had high hopes for this one, as a good riff on this film would help heal the world from the horribleness of George Lucas having created it in the first place.  This wasn't it.

When I saw this movie when it was originally released I hated it for what it did to my love of Star Wars.  When I watched the Riff years later all that bad feeling was ancient history and I saw it for the objectively horrible movie it really is - separate from any crime against the previous films.

Some people didn't like the Phantom Menace riff because they thought it was a little too angry and not funny enough.  All I can say is that while it's not my favourite riff, the subsequent Episodes are better.

I agree, the episode 3 riff had me dying!!! 

In fact this weekend I may download episode 2 because I just remembered how fun the 3rd was!! ;D

I really enjoyed the Episode 1 riff, if for no other reason than I absolutely despised the movie and thought it deserved every bit of hate they threw at it.  Even something as simple as hearing Mike yell "Look, go to hell!" at JarJar had me laughing because I could tell how genuine the emotion was.
