Rifftrax Short/Movie pairings
« on: September 18, 2010, 10:19:24 AM »
Since there are about as many shorts as full-length riffs, and since it's been common to show a short film/cartoon before a movie at the theaters, it got me to thinking about pairing up shorts and movies that seem to naturally go together.

I'll throw a couple out there:

Grass/ The Happening
What If We Had a Fire/Reign of Fire

See I thought Drugs Are Like That would go better with Transformers 2

I kept thinking and thinking of what DALT would go best with. Then I was like "Oh hai, misinformed drug movie".  I think DALT is also a much, much, much stronger riff than RM (as much as I enjoy RM) and you wanna let the feature do the heavy lifting.  And yeah, they use the same amount of colorful incoherency.  I still feel perhaps there's a better choice out there.  Hmm... Well, here's another...

Your chance to live would work well with either Transformers or any Matrix riff.

Might I suggest that Are You Popular might go best with Twilight?  Same kind of nerds hanging around the lunchroom...two of them trying to figure out if they're going to date...one group being catty about the dating practices of the girls in the other....

Overcoming Fear and Beowulf (the swimming and the nakedness)?
