LOC- The 50 Most Requested Rifftrax of 2012
« on: January 30, 2012, 12:47:51 PM »
Here's how it works!

Participants were asked to send  a list of your 25 movies they wanted to see a Rifftrax for. 24 ballots were received, and the movies were ranked on a point system allowing 25 points for a #1 choice, 24 for a #2, and all the way down to 1 point for #25. The points were added up, and what follows are the selections.

Tiebreakers work like such: If two movies have equal pointage, the movie that appeared on the most lists ranks higher. If those movies appeared on the same amount of lists, then the film ranked higher on the individual list got the higher spot. A movie that was someone's #4 beats another person's #6, for example. And then if titles  were tied, a random choice was made. Yeah, whoops. I forgot about that this year and just determined ties randomly.

Please don't post your lists until the entire list is posted.
Please do complain/kick yourself/pontificate as much as you want, because that's the point!

The Top 50 Movies You Want Rifftrax to Riff Countdown 2012 begins now. Let your conversations begin.

Synopsis:
"Ellen Ripley, the sole survivor of the alien attack on the mining ship Nostromo, awakens half a century later when she is found by a salvage ship. The welcome given to her by the "Company" officials is far from warm, since they refuse to believe her discovery of alien existence and strip her off her flight officer's license. Ripley also discovers, much to her horror, that the planet LV-426 where her crew had encountered an alien species for the first time, is now colonized by the company. But when all contact from the planet is lost Ripley is called back into action again as an advisor to a team of tough space marines with lots of firepower. To get rid of her recurrent nightmares about the alien creature, Ripley prepares for a final battle with the monsters - and this time, there are hundreds of them out there."
