I think I laughed the hardest when he said that the porno title of this movie would be "The Thigh-Land of Dr. More Oh".

Made the same year was "The Island of Dr. Porneaux" which I found on IMDB.



Ewww. The cast lists only three guys. I repeat: ewww.

Yeah, three isn't nearly enough.


Wait, scratch that. Nothing to see here.

The riffing was top notch in this one. The movie itself wasn't bad in the usual sense. It created its own brand of bad, somehow. Something about the acting and the pacing.. It's hard to place where the movie went wrong, but easy to see that it DID go wrong...

Oh, boy, this one was funny.

It started kinda slow for me, but once Val Kilmer started dressing like Moreau, I was in stitches.

Overall I thought the riff was ok, but it did lose steam toward the end of the flick, with a few good ones scattered throughout until the finale.

I had never seen the movie before now, and I'm glad I did. What a piece of crap! They were certainly right when they said this film makes Planet of the Apes seem like the most brilliant thing ever created!


I did like Kevin's impression of the Apeman commenting on the Kawai piano!

I think the guys were right, sometimes it seemed like it was getting just a little bit silly, didn't it?  :D :D The guys seemed especially sharp this time! I was giggling pretty much all the way through, except a few times when I had to look away. It was a bit gory for my (cowardly) tastes.

It still astounds me sometimes to see what happened to Brando. I was never a big fan of the guy (for one thing, I'm still nursing a grudge that he got to play Sky in "Guys and Dolls" when he could barely sing a note, and they had to cut my favorite song because he couldn't handle it!), but I do have to acknowledge he's turned in some excellent performances. To go from "Waterfront" and "Streetcar" to this -- I'm flabbergasted.

But Kevin's Brando voice was spot-on. "In nomine Patrie and . . . whatever that other guy's name is." Hee!  ;D

I had some real sync issues with this one. Perhaps the movie I rented? Seemed like the trax kept falling behind.

and then I watch it a second time and the syncing is just fine... Very wierd. Certainly is a lot funnier when the timing lines up.

What method do you use to play the rifftrax?

The thing about Brando is that, yeah, he was a fantastic actor when he felt like it, but he was also really, really weird. His personal problems had already kept him out of big movies for a long time before the Godfather, and then he pretty much blew that, too.

Of couse, gaining 300 pounds doesn't help, either.

Yeah, there really shouldn't be synch issues so to speak of, we've got this system of ours worked out pretty well.

When complaints of synch issues arise, we need to know the following info:  What version of the movie you're using, (in this case there is only one, if you're watching NTSC), what format (DVD or VHS, obviously we don't encourage VHS), How you're watching it (Ipod in hand or on your computer).  Then we can offer advice about what might have caused the problem.

The most frustrating thing is when someone writes in and complains of a synch issue, and only after three back and forths from email do they finally admit that they just downloaded a copy from somewhere that could have any number of reasons why it doesn't synch and which we obviously don't endorse as a method to get your RiffTrax to work the best.

This was a good one, despite the movie being pretty crappy.

My two favorite riffs.

"He managed to animated a wad of used chewing gum." and

"Damn Radio Shack batteries."

I used my player both times :P

The first time, the movie stuttered about a few minutes in and kept desyncing at a constant rate.
The second time I used the readme file to skip straight to the opening boat scene, paused the mp3 after the line was said, waited for the movie to catch-up, then unpaused it. It stayed synced from there on out.

Its an old blockbuster rental.

Its just wierd that it would be inconsistant. I even restarted my player the first time around around mid-way and downloaded the PAL version to make sure there wasn't a mix-up. After I found that wasn't it, I went back and skipped to the middle of the movie, where the syncing problem persisted.

Yet like I said, this second time around the syncing was perfect!

And my favorite line is: "Give him the gun." "you've had it all day" "Give 'em the gun!" "its his turn now."

And the thing about this movie it is actually pretty good, minus the needless pyrotechnics and horrible CG, which for some reason managed to get its own special on E!

   Everyone acted like they were on drugs in this movie, even during scenes when they weren't even using any.

   I nearly fell off the couch when that scene with Marlon wearing the metal hat came on. And is it just me, or does it seem like nearly every scene with Marlon in it involve eating of some kind? Either he's eating something, the people around him are eating, or he's being eaten?

    Not a bad movie, and not a bad rifftrax. I give it 7 out of 10.

Was the (real) main character genetically engineered too? What was that scar on his arm about?
I think my brain blew a fuse (same with Mike and Kevin it seems).

Can anyone explain this to me? The thought of watching that movie again sans Rifftrax just to figure out if there was a plot point here is too much. I have no clue why that guy was constantly on drugs or what that scar was all about, or whether he was purposefully brought to the island...

Ow.

My head hurts.

Well, I [/i]think[/i] the idea was supposed to be that Moreau had a magical DNA serum he would give to animals, which made them less violent and more human- thus, nearly everyone on the island- and in theory, to humans, which would make them incapable of violence and cruelty altogether. The twist was that the perfecting drug had been given to the main character without telling him, presumably while he was unconscious at the beginning of the movie. Thus, whateverhisnamewas's inability to shoot the Hyena man, and Moreau's command to have Val give him the gun.

Wow, this movie made more sense than I thought.
