Title: RIFFTRAX PLAYOFFS ROUND 2 HEAT 5
Post by: SmilinJackRoss on November 23, 2006, 07:43:07 PM
This is Round two of the Rifftrax Playoffs.  I'm using this set-up:

(W= winner of round 1 heat, R=1st runner up of round 1 heat)

Heat 1 = W1 vs R6
Heat 2 = W2 vs R5
Heat 3 = W3 vs R4
Heat 4 = W4 vs R3
Heat 5 = W5 vs R2
Heat 6 = W6 vs R1

The poll will run until Wednesday Nov 29th.

A match-up of some truly out of this world sci-fi.  Vote!

Even though I picked Godzilla in the first round, I'm changing my vote to Starship Troopers.  Godzilla is terrible movie, while Starship Troopers a good/terrible movie.

Had to go with GINO... makes a mockery of the original movies and thats saying something considering the sequels themselves did a good job on their own.

Never seen either, but I know Troopers wasn't that good. So I'll go with it.

But you have a doubt that maybe Godzilla wasn't as bad? Matthew Broderick battles a giant iguana in New York.

I haven't seen Godzilla but I did see the promo around Godzilla and I have no doubt that it's worse than Starship Troopers.  I could be wrong but I doubt it!

I've seen them both, but I'm not sure if I could say which was worse. They're both bad in much the same way. I think maybe these two shouldn't have been matched up so soon.

See when you put it like that, it sounds awesome...

And it degenerates into sub-Jurassic Park nonsense.

Starship Troopers is an actually good film. I'm astonished it's received as many votes as it has. Well, I enjoyed it, so did pretty much everyone I know, but it takes all sorts I suppose.

I enjoyed Starship Troopers, certainly a lot more than Godzilla. Besides it had Clancy Brown in it!

I'm Doing My Part!

I agree Starship Troopers is a fairly good movie but I voted for it. I think Rifftrax doesn't need to go exclusively with stinker flicks. Variety is the spice of life!

I haven't seen either one in a long time, but I voted for Starship Troopers. This one is purely selfish. I never want to watch that god-awful Godzilla movie again, even if it's getting riffed. :)
