The movie got a little too painful in the last 15-20 mins, but all-in-all an A-1 commentary!  Definite improvement over the LOTR track, and I'm excited for Firewall!

Man that movie was exceptionally strange, though, and I saw it in the theatres for some reason. ???

Yikes!

That was a weird one. I will always say that when Brando and Kilmer collide into the super"strange"nova.
It was a pretty good rifftrax. I still liked The Matrix, Point Break, Star Trek, and Star Wars better, but there were some good riffs in this one. I'll give it an 7/10

Thus, whateverhisnamewas's inability to shoot the Hyena man, and Moreau's command to have Val give him the gun.

Ohhhhhhhhhh, I get it now.  I thought he was implanted with one of those Zap2It thingies.

I was never one to fully grasp plots.  I grew up watching The Sound of Music and was always puzzling as to why Julie Andrews didn't want those nice Nazis to help the Captain start his broken car.  She just seemed unduly bitchy about the whole thing.

This is why I write nonfiction.

Funny stuff, Mike and Kevin.  I always laughed along with them as they just started snickering whenever Brando came on-screen.

It wasn't particularly clear, so I think it's less that anyone else here is bad at figuring it out than it is that I am just awesome.

i thought they also implied that he might have been implanted..and that he might have been injected with some "turn me into a 1/2 animal" serum as well

..but who knows what they were thinking! 

this gets an A+ from me!  perfect movie for riffing.

I've been doing a lot of reflecting on this and I can only draw one conclusion: Drugs. Lots and lots of drugs. Passed around between cast, crew, and director. No other explanation. :^)

Oh I watched this film this morning, oh my god. The words, they can't describe, the horror, the horror.

Finally got around to watching this, using a special super secret, and I must say, I am quite happy.  A Devendra Banhart and a Tom Waits reference within a minute of each other, I'm in "hey, I got the obscure reference!" heaven.

I listened to this last night and thought it was great.  The film is entertaining enough in its oddity, but the riffs made it better.  I think my biggest laugh out loud moment was when Kevin parodied South Pacific.  Hilarious!

I might've been the only man, however...  ;D

I had not seen this movie coming into the Riff...I'll be honest, this movie was almost unbearable, riff or not. I mean, it didn't even have that "stupid movie" type entertainment value that you get with a Road House or The Fifth Element.

But the guys did fantastic nonetheless...

Hey everyone, just getting back into the swing of things after a brutal holiday season and in the middle, (even now), of some serious crazy work.  Started DLing a bunch of the flicks I missed and watched Dr. Island today.

I never saw this version although I have seen every other version, the 40's Bela Lugosi and the 70's Micheal York version, and I read the original HG Wells story.  This version was actually most true to the IDEA of the original story, which was a typical "religion is bad" theme for HG Wells, a very adamant humanist/socialist kind of guy, (although his humanism didn't extend to anyone who wasn't caucasion but we won't go into that...).

Dr. Moreau was supposed to represent the insane god of creation that makes humans out of lower animals and then his creations destroy him, much like Mary Shelley taught us a few years before Wells' time, but there is more of a societal bent to this story.  Frankenstien dealt with one guy and one "Adam" creation whereas The Island represents all of our civilization.  Blah blah blah.

My problem with this riff is that the movie, for me, had some GENUINELY creepy and disturbing stuff going on that I won't be able to shake in my fever dreams, and Stan Wilson's animal make ups were pretty good, (the computer stuff was really crappy though).  But, what was cool was I now know where the South Park guys got the little creepy monkey side kick for their crazy Brando DNA scientist in... well... South Park.  The sad thing is, that kid was a real victim of a horrifying disease that makes young children age hundreds of times faster then they should.  Pregeria, I think it's called, where a 12 year old child looks and feels like an 80 year old person because thier glands age at an excellerated state.  Very sad.  At least he got some time in a movie.  (they don't live very long, as a rule).

All in all, I would say a very good effort.  And a good backup, considering I DL'd the Daredevil, (historic as all three for the first time!!!!), but my copy of DD was the directors cut so I have to wait to get the theatrical version before I can watch it.  Dr. M. was a good first alternate.  Can't wait to see Battlefield Earth!  (I spent an entire summer reading that piece of crap, even the book was pure 1113 pages of agony!).

Interesting, but a little too depressing for this board

...remember, Val Kilmer acting like senile Marlon Brando...
