Riff the Vote!
« on: January 11, 2007, 10:59:18 PM »
Yes Mike, Kevin and Bill's alter egos, "The Film Crew" are in a quandary, (well, actually they're going over their itinerary whilst they're in San Fran, but I digress...)  I stumbled across this at their site, and they are lining up four very bad movies to be released on DVD by the "Shout Factory".  The premise is as easy as pie, and twice as sticky.  You go to the Film Crew site,  http://www.filmcrewonline.com/index.html where you can watch the first two minutes of the 4 movies, then vote on which of them will get the ax... er, receive the honor of being released first.  This Will be like the DVD's that Mike did commentary for Legend Films, Plan 9 and Shop of Horrors, with the riffs baked right in....

.......Ah  the power of Cheeeez!

Just be careful to click on the thumbnails of the movies, and not the buttons below marked "vote" as you can only choose one, and you certainly don't want to screw it up like I did...  (Uh, just pretend I didn't say that...)

This has been brought up before, but I suppose it can't hurt to be mentioned again.

familiar to most I'm sure, but certainly worth its own thread

Maybe this should be brought up again, there are a lot of newer people on the board who may not've seen this.  Personally, I'm looking forward to a revisit of the MST3k territory.  My only hope is that they're actually releasing all three and the vote is just to determine which one comes first.

There was already a link floating around to an online store with a coming soon for 'hollywood after dark' so I suspect the choice has been made. One of the mods could ask for us.

Yes, I created the thread way back in mid October:

http://www.rifftrax.com/smf/index.php?topic=527.0


But I'm curious to know if The Film Crew has chosen anything yet? Also, I was under the impression that they would eventually release all 4 of the movies, we just got to choose which one came first.

Please shed some light on the situation, those of you who work near the great Mike Nelson! Or perhaps the great one himself could enlighten us?  :)

I'm not complaining here. But I don't understand why the Film Crew needs to be separate from RiffTrax?

I mean, RiffTrax has proven to us that they will do any movie and now with the 'RiffTrax Complete' DVD for "Swing Parade", and all 3 riffers in on Daredevil, it would only make sense that The Film Crew release these 4 movies as a RiffTrax Complete...would it not?

Just being curious...

I was wondering about that too.  The only thing I can think of is that Shout! owns the rights to the movies, or have the right "connections" to be able to obtain the movies at a reasonable cost.  Perhaps Legend only wants to focus on movies that they will colourize?

Well the Film Crew existed before rifftrax did for one. I am sure the contracts are different for The Film Crew than they are for Mike Nelson's Rifftrax ;) . Of course if they find that the Rifftrax umbrella is more benefitial for everyone (particularly marketing) perhaps they may consolidate.
