All Dogs go to Heaven.

Yeah, I hate Don Bluth. He's only made two good pictures, in my opinion: "Secret of N.I.M.H." and "An American Tail."

The problem with Bluth is not only that he tries to make films based on a really watered down version of the Disney formula, but he tries to make depressing films based on a really watered down version of the Disney formula. So he makes watered down, depressing Disney movies. Except that it's not Disney.

On November 7th, they rerelease Transformers: The Movie on a nifty new DVD.

This movie, while animated, fits VERY well into the Rifftrax fodder we've seen so far. It's got guns a-blazing, cheesy dialogue, and, if riffed, would bring in a massive following of Transformers fans (And we are LEGION!)

So if Rifftrax is looking for a chance to do animation, might I suggest starting here?

Not my beloved Transformers  :'( (Is a TransFans as well as a MSTie)

I don't think i could take Mike riffing on Optimus Prime...
In brightest day, in darkest night
No DVD shall escape their sight
Let those who tremble in bad movies light,
Beware the power, Rifftrax's might!

Heyooooo! :^) Yeah I'm a big time Transfan myself, but if you take off the nostalgia goggles, there's a lot there to be made funny (And what Transformers-Addict doesn't wanna see Wheelie get riffed!? :^))

I rented a CG straight-to-video movie called Kaena: The Prophecy.  It's not too bad, but it's very riffable.  Kaena's voiced by Kirsten Dunst (or as I call her: "The Problem with the Spiderman Franchise").

But I'm totally with everyone on Final Fantasy:TSW and Akira.  It's hard to think of anime films that are well-known, riffable and readily available.  Ghost In the Shell

Can we split the difference on the animation and suggest Space Jam and Looney Toons: Back In Action?

How about A Scanner Darkly?  Animation and Keanu.

A serious movie about the negative effects of drug use (I mean, a realistic portrayal of the negative effects of drug use, not an over-the-top exaggeration, like Reefer Madness) would be too depressing to mock. Plus, it's from the excellent Phillip K. Dick novel. Keanu or not, the movie would never fit the RiffTrax mold. Sorry.

Adam Sandler's Craptastic "8 Crazy Nights" definately deserves to be riffed. But it might be a difficult one because A) it's comedy and comedies don't work quite as well B) most of the characters are already being made fun of and C) Adam's Sandler's voices are so annoying that even a good riff may not be enough bandage for the pain of watching

Quite a few animated features worth riffing on. Here are a few just of the top of my head.

Titan AE
The Bakshi Lord Of the Rings..Actually you know what Bakshi's entire filmography would be great.
Princess Mononoke (which I actually like however, I think it could be a REALLY fun Rifftrax)
Space Jam
The Point would be way too obscure, but I would love to see that one.
Metroplis would also be really fun.

I don't know if anyone could sit through this even with really good riffing from Mike, Kevin and Bill.
Titanic: The Animated Movie
So horrible.... so horrible. Talking animals.
Edited to add -It says a lot when an animated movie can be considered worse than the actual disaster it's based off of.

I haven't seen it personally, but it was shown as the 'worse animated film ever' at our local con's 'anime hell'.  I researched it a bit and found that it was originally in italian, and about 20 minutes of it was cut out (which probably included the ending).

I think Titan AE would be a good candidate, and Bakshi's LOTR (which I've always been iffy about).  Or you could go with other freaks of nature like "Scooby-Doo Meets Batman" (I own it- painfully hilarious) or the recent "Legend of Frosty the Snowman" (where Frosty sounds borderline retarded).

Mike wants to do Peter Jackson's LOTR at one point, which I'd actually rather see riffed than Bakshi's.

Given that Mike's a clean comedian, I wouldn't expect him to sit down and riff on any of Bakshi's R or X-rated films (plus, the subject matter explored in Ralph Bakshi's work would make anyone fairly uncomfortable; I can't see how that would work for a comedy track), which doesn't leave much ("Fire and Ice" and "Wizards" aren't as widely available as say, "Crossroads" or "Road House").

What about American Pop? I don't know about you, but out where I am, Wal-Mart seems to have a surplus of them in their bargain bins. Mind you, I don't consider it a very riffable movie- I tend to think that it's Bakshi's best work (mostly historical), but that's just me.
