Oblivion and Replica - classic Rifftrax. The movies were hilarious on their own, the riffing adds the icing to the cake.

But George - sweet George Takei... the hell? I can give a pass to the Replica non-actors acting. But you're a seasoned professional, capable of giving a solid performance (see that Twilight Zone ep for one). Man, you should know better.

In George's defense, an actor often needs a talented director to bring out that performance. Samuel L. Jackson and Natalie Portman are great actors, but you wouldn't think so if you only saw them in the prequels.

There's a difference between giving a lackluster performance and chewing the scenery worse than Shatner.

Street Fighter. What a piece of Garbage. I'd rather watch the Super Mario Bros. movie five times unriffed than the Street Fighter movie riffed again. Not even the riffing could save it.

No Retreat, No Surrender. The movie was a letterbox within a 4:3 screen, so when I watched on my iPhone, I had to zoom in and it looked extra fuzzy and grainy. I would say this was one of their best, up there with R.O.T.O.R., Mothra, and The Wizard. Very rarely did I not laugh at a riff, and I was howling with laughter at a famous MST3K callback (you know it when you'll come to it). Some movies w/ riffs I remove from my iPhone to save space, but I'm definitely keeping this one on my phone to watch again!
