Already posted in the 20Q's thread...but for the sake of laziness/continuity here's easy access:

Looks good! I wish I didn't work nights on Tuesdays! Or I wish Riffs were released on Mondays!

I wish more places carried this movie.  It took several calls to find it, and now I have to drive all the way across town tonight to pick up a copy.  A friendly video store employee says they'll be holding it behind the counter for me.

Did anyone realize it's this portion of the movie is same clip they used in the Mystery Science Theater 3000 Summer Blockbuster Review?

Damn it, I can't get that song out of my head now...

Bill actually asked us to use this clip because of the MST3K link.

It's up now.  I'm impressed that no one started whining that it wasn't up earlier.  Is that a rifftrax first?

I hereby demand the next title now, so that doesn't happen again.  Looking forward to this one.  Glad to have Mary Jo back.

Well that sinks it. I'm building a time machine so I can go back and whine. I'll call it the "Crush Conors Dream Machine."

That's totally what I'm naming my band.

I assume you mean this post.

If this is supposed to be whining, then you really suck at it.  Maybe you need to practice more.

I ended up buying a copy off on Amazon for fifty cents.  Less than four dollars shipped, cheaper than a rental.  Of course, now I've got yet another DVD in my collection that I'll never watch again but I've done dumber things for Rifftrax.  I'm looking forward to watching the riffed version tomorrow.

I may have to do the same thing, and have done the same in the past.  I don't mind spending a few extra bucks on a used DVD if the RiffTrax for it is good, since I tend to watch them with the riffing more than once.  And the sample is so good, it feels like a must-see.  But NetFlix has the movie as a "long wait" and God only knows when they'll have it available.

Well I've watched it and the riff is definitely worth the purchase.  Bill and MJ do a great job.  I remember now why I only watched this movie once, way back when it came out in the theaters.

Oh, cmon, you don't just LOVE the Mumbling of words over and over again, never understanding what they are saying?

I turned on the Closed Captions on one X-Files Show once and it went "Skully, .... .. . .... ... .... aliens and you know that .... .. . . .. .. will stop at nothing to hide it." I'm serious too...

It's almost as bad as Jeff Golfblum explaining chaos theory in Jurassic Park.  ;)

Nah, it's worse than that, because Goldblum was just one guy, while, in this one, we have two bland characters - among others - spouting constant exposition. And the chaos theory at least made sense!
