Made a slight change in the ranking once I realized that I'd calculated the standings wrong. (All point totals are fine, I just forgot how I was handling tiebreakers.)

Bonus Entry!

This year, as a special treat, I contacted a number of people outside the Rifftrax community and asked them what they'd like to see tackled by Mike and the guys. And some of these folks were kind enough to reply. So, let's start with our first guest entry...



Quote
... Two that I’d especially love to see done:

-Star Trek: The Motion Picture

-Frankenstein Meets the Space Monster (this one in particular is rife with riffing potential, in particular “EL TELEPHONO!” or just the constant bits of “Frankenstein” [AKA a robot named Frank] just stumbling around confused and malfunctioning.  Also included are very fey aliens in bad bald caps and girls getting shrink-wrapped)

Hope that helps, at least!

ST: TMP has, of course, been in prior years' lists. So, let's take a look at the other suggestion:

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/O9It2mr5hP8?version=3" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/O9It2mr5hP8?version=3</a>

Yeah, that just might work. Thanks, Lewis!

Lewis' work can, of course, be seen at Atop the 4th Wall.

Actually, they did do it.  In a Halloween episode they go inside Mr Burns to save Maggie, who has been swallowed.

37. Con Air - (1997) - 32 points
(2 of 17 lists. Highest ranking - #1 DB Barnes)

This movie is ridiculous on so many levels. In terms of riffing potential, this is what you would call extremely target-rich. Between the lame plot, cheesy one-liners,  and over-the-top characters/performances, this pile is just  begging to be riffed. Who else voted for it?

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/fWq-S1_1vnc?version=3&amp;amp;hl=en_US" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/fWq-S1_1vnc?version=3&amp;amp;hl=en_US</a>




36. The Island- (2005) - 33 points
(2 of 17 lists. Highest ranking - #1 CJ Jones)

Scarlett Johansson looks amazing in this movie. That's totally irrelevant to the topic. This movie wasn't even on my list.


33. The Ewok Adventure: Caravan of Courage - (1985) - 34 points
(2 of 17 lists. Highest ranking - #4 Gojikranz)

Dammit! I spaced on this one. Totally should've put this on my list. It's always something! :grr:


49. Demolition Man - (1993) - 27 points
(2 of 17 lists. Highest ranking - #5 DB Barnes)
As much of a target as it is, Demolition Man seems completely self-aware, and aware of the fact that it's a really silly yet massively fun action movie. It actually kind of riffs on itself if you ask me.

I'm gonna stay away from the whole "self-aware" issue on this thread. It doesn't take away from the fact that I think this would make a great riff. You could make the same argument for Flash Gordon and Starship Troopers, and I'm sure there will several others before this list is done. Besides, there's plenty of that talk over in the Suggest-a-Trax thread.
VIVA IL ESORDIO DEL DIABETE ADULTO DUCE!!!

Although to be honest I can do without his cheesy story lines.
