On 2 hour plus trax I've started watching 'em over 2 nights. Doing that has improved the 2nd half of those (longer) films greatly.

So for me, the 2nd half was just as funny.

Based on this comment, I just realized that you're the esteemed Mighty Jack.  Kudos on your review site, which has been a highly entertaining and useful resource for me personally for a number of years now.

And I'm glad you gave The Day After Tomorrow another shot with your new two-part viewing process.  I consider it a criminally underrated track, so I'm happy to see it getting some much-needed love.

D-OH! I'd have been a terrible superhero, can't maintain a secret identity to save my life.  ;) But seriously, thanks for the kind words about the site. Yeah "Day After Tomorrow"  really got me laughing the last time I saw it.

Meh. There were a few very funny lines here an there, but, much like the movie itself, it was more or less generic and unmemorable.

Good. I'm glad somebody agrees with me. I was getting paranoid.  :speechless:

There did seem to be some blandness to it. But there was a collection of lines that made it all worth it.

For my personal nerdy scoring system, it got a 9.34 so on the poll i gave it a 9.

This CRUSHED the first X movie in my eyes as a riff, and I too was tired of the Magneto/Cerebro thing but Bill's frustration made it funny.  I personally am  huge fan of the first 2 X movies without the riffs and I greatly enjoyed this effort.



Now this made me wonder: At some point do we get to see them take on the craptastic Ratner-ruined X3 sorta dark phoenix/Jean in a pissy mood "movie"?

Just watched this one.  I had to give it a 10, since they referred to my "Where Do I Poop?" joke from the Batman And Robin Rifftrax.

Lots of laughs in this one.   :clap:

Actually, I rate it as pi + e + sqrt(3).

Which, yes, rounds up to eight.  The man knows his mathematics.  I'll give him that.

Well....

3.1415926535897932384626433832795 + 2.71828183 + 1.73205081 = 7.5919252935897932384626433832795

Which is WAY different from 8!

For me, this was one of the most solid RiffTrax ever.  I can't remember a time I laughed so hard and consistently.  Perhaps it was the fact that we had to stop half-way through.  I used to have the belief that the guys would always run outta steam towards the end, but now I really believe I run outta steam.  I will adopt this new split-up technique.  It worked wonders.  Going back to the movie was kinda hard, but we were laughing our butts off right from the 2nd start (which nobody thought could happen).  Also, i looove the Magneto/Cerebro jokes.  I hated them by the end of the first one, but, on multiple viewings, I've come to really enjoy them.  I am totally there for whenever X3 is released.  I also didn't notice any "filler" jokes.  Probably because I was laughing at a previous joke so hard.  I dunno.  Absolutely loved this.  It's the first time I've ever decided instantly on a 10. 

Btw Mighty Jack, great site.  I have a friend who quotes your site like it were RottenTomatoes and IMDb combined.

9. Great riff. And I'm sorry--Magneto-Cerebro never gets old with me.

and by the way...Magneto - not gay at all...
