Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory

I'm sure I saw this one before... back around the time it was released... but I didn't have any recollection of it on this viewing... That's a surefire sign that I was probably enjoying a few too many barley pops the first time around. Anyways, thought this provided consistent enough chuckles but there were very few laugh out loud moments. Still, everything moved along nicely and I always had a smile on my face... NPH was really good in his guest spot and probably delivered most of the best lines. But it's not something that I will likely consider for many repeat viewings... this is one of those movies that I'll always enjoy more sans riffing... just a bizzaro classic on it's own.

Watched The Room again last night.
 
The funniest thing about this movie?  Is how its marketed as a hilarious black comedy.

I must say that I both love and hate Rifftrax.  ;D They have made me actually watch and enjoy those wretched "Twilight" movies. I can't believe Rifftrax is constantly able to take the festering turds coming out of Hollywood and turn them into diamonds.  Rifftrax is the only way to keep up with the Hollywood crap and not have your head implode.  I absolutely love your "Twilight" riffs and have shown them to friends with great response.  My personal favorite riff from"Breaking Dawn": "Another rejection from a college that requires shirts." 
I also very much enjoy the "Harry Potter" riffs.  "Chamber of Secrets" is one of the funniest riffs ever.  I had to pause it several times because I was laughing so hard I couldn't breath.  I still haven't watched all of "Half-Blood Prince" for the same reason.  The riff "Harry Potter and his elderly gentlemen friends" makes me almost pee my pants.  Keep up the great work.

Yes, one one hand they make us laugh, and on the other they make us watch crap like Twilight and the Star Wars Holiday Special. It's an abusive relationship.

Roadhouse. I'm going through the entire RT catalog and reauthoring them all, in order of their release. It's been quite a few years since we've visited the RT 'Holy Grail'. My old mix was lousy...Mike's solo commentary wasn't audible in many sections where the movie's music was loud. Hearing it again with the new and improved mix made for a fun filled evening with friends and family.  Every fan of RT needs to own this one. Great stuff!!  :D

Yep!, I did the same.  This was my first Riff, and like you, I missed most of it.  I remixed, rewatched, and re-enjoyed, where it all started.  It holds up VERY well.  It will always be one of my Fav's.

Roadhouse really is a great riff.

Last night I finally watched the Karate Kid III riff. It really is quite good and it's a shame it sold so badly. My favorite thing about it was how intertextual it was with other RTs--there are riffs on Birdemic, the Room, the Happening, and others in the movie, so it's great for diehard RT fans.  Plus, the villain is so comical and Ralph is so...androgynous? that these make for good comedy.

I didn't know KK3 wasn't a great seller..? That is too bad, because it is a fine piece of comedic work. But like MST3K, I think time will be kind to Rifftrax and these will be recognized justly. Sometimes you have to wait awhile in order to see successful results  :)

Watched a bunch of shorts tonight.  Setting Up A Room still kills, even after seeing it many times I start to really lose it at the point they show the one teacher putting blocks on a shelf for way too long.

Just finished my latest shorts collection Shorts a Poppin. 

Molly Grows up is probably one of my favorite shorts, hilarious.  I remember watching films like this in school.  They all talked about your period like it was such a big deal, which I guess at the time it was.  Especially love the part about things you should only do moderately.  And about not swimming, you might get a chill.

"So I can dance, but I can only square dance moderately?"

"Try Modess. Now big enough for a Sasquatch."

"Brought to you by the Personal Products Corporation. What we make is none of your damned business."

As a guy, I found that both hilarious and slightly unnerving.

The Artisanal Shorts DVD.

I really strong one. I liked every short though I think they could have waited to release Grasses and Paper and I since they were part of the live show.

The Turkey short was hilarious but really disturbing. My girlfriend has spent some time around turkeys (heh, including me I guess, though I'm a jive turkey) and was really freaked out at how sick looking the turkeys were.

I think County Fair and Calender are my favs.
The chick in calender looks like she just walked off the set of a John Holmes film.

High School Musical

Fantastic the second time around. The girlfriend loved it too...definitely in my top ten fav riffs.

What a creepy movie though. The sterility of the high school and the sentiments the film expresses feeling somewhat fascist to me. A world of complete and total mediocrity which is of course the fascist aesthetic...

    • Yep, I have a deviantART gallery. But it's pretty cheerful drawings-- no angsty poems or black-and-white photos of wooden chairs.

Rise of the Planet of the Apes.

I've had that one for awhile, but I kinda sat on it because for one reason or another, I just wasn't in the mood to watch it. But I finally caught it the other night and laughed my ass off. Which I *REALLY* needed because I've been in a really shitty mood for a couple weeks.
I used to have an image here, but Photobucket got cheap about remote linking. I guess I'll have to think of something witty instead. Which I will. Later. It caught me by surprise, in all honesty. It's hard to be clever on command, I mean, YOU try it. Be funny: NOW! See, tough. So, gimme a bit, 'kay?
