"The Quileute and the Volturi close in on expecting parents Edward and Bella, whose unborn child poses different threats to the wolf pack and vampire coven. Bella decides to remain human for a while longer after marrying Edward. They honeymoon on a private island where Edward can bask in the sun without causing alarm. When she begins to get sick, Edward rushes her home to Forks. They soon realize that despite all odds, Bella is pregnant and the baby is growing so quickly that Bella's life is in danger. The Cullens are afraid that if Bella gives birth, she will die, but she refuses to give the child up. When the Quileute wolf pack learns of the pregnancy, they fear that the baby will be like a newborn vampire—a crazed blood drinker who murders innocent humans. They plan to destroy it—and if Bella is killed in the process, so be it."

Last year's #25: Knowing - (2008)

Synopsis:
"A midwestern U.S. hub airport struggles to remain open despite the worst snowstorm in 25 years, angry homeowners from a nearby housing tract and pilots refusing to obey noise abatement rules during the storm. Mel Bakersfield is the airport manager who must not only fight the weather and the home owners but his pilot/playboy brother-in-law, his divorce seeking wife, a deranged man with a bomb, a plane stuck in the mud and blocking the main runway, a little old lady stowaway and the airport commissioners. A very accurate, for its time, depiction of the day-to-day goings on at a busy airport-- with some extra high drama thrown in for seasoning."

Okay, the next three entries? All had the same number of votes and all votes were in the same position.  Grr. So they were randomized.

And person who wanted "Any film from this series", you had about 5 different candidates nominated. This is the one you voted for.

GINO has fallen.  i still think that would be a good older(compared to most rifftrax) film to do since there are about ten billion copies of the dvd floating around.

Just in case you didn't know, Quiptracks has done a riff of the American version of Godzilla. It's pretty darn good.

And our list of guest entries continues with webcatoonist day!

Yes, webcartoonists!

...

Hey, NPH doesn't answer his email. And Penn just sent me back an email saying "Three of clubs." Granted, that was my card, but I didn't ask him about that.

Anyway, webcartoonists! Folks who bring us illustrated joy and mirth every day for free! Respect them and rejoice in their presence!

First up we have...



Quote
Still, if I must (and I must), here's a list off the top of my head, and in no particular order:

* The Harlem Globetrotters on Gilligan's Island
* Hook
* The Spirit
* Return to Oz
* Never Say Never Again
* The Great Gatsby
* The Last Starfighter
* Super Mario Bros.
* Ferngully: The Last Rainforest
* My Neighbor Totoro
* The Batman serials from 1943
* Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers: The Movie
* Corvette Summer
* Holiday Inn
* Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze
* The Black Cauldron
* Howard the Duck
* The Rocketeer
* The Wizard

Alright, I'll stop there.  Nothing else is rolling swiftly off my virtual tongue.  I think it's fairly clearly from most of that list that I was born in 1983.  In any event, I think Rifftrax could carve out an even larger niche for themselves if they targeted more goofy films of my generation.  Highlander and Karate Kid III were huge steps in the right direction.

Also, appro of nothing, but we need to convince Cole Stratton and Janet Varney to get back in the recording booth.  There are times when I prefer them to the regular Rifftrax crew!

Trout's work includes the goofy superhero romp "Sporkman", the recently ended literary comic Lit Brick, and the newly begun and the uniquely named "Mary Elizabeth's Sock." Which, to borrow a different webcomic's catchphrase "Is not satanic Porn." I think. It's early in the strip. And ladies? He knows Jeph Jacques...

BTW John? He draws you better than you do.

And continuing webcartoonist day, it's  a favorite of Eric Burns-White.



Quote
1. Mazes and Monsters (1982): The classic TV movie/cautionary tale in which Tom Hanks is driven mad by the seductive pull of tabletop gaming.  But in an interesting way, not in the way where you wear T-shirts based on Internet memes and tell everyone about your character.

2. Legend (1985): Sometimes not even the can't-miss combination of Ridley Scott's direction and Tim Curry in a big red devil suit can save a film.  I don't understand it either.

3. Rocky IV (1985): Yes, it's great that Rocky defeats Communism.  But in the cold, hard light of day, we have to face the fact that a franchise that was initially a gritty Rust Belt underdog story had, by the fourth movie, morphed into a thing where it seems reasonable for Paulie to own a robot butler.  And by "butler" I of course mean "prostitute."

4. Under the Cherry Moon (1986): I debated for many fraught hours over which failed musical pop-star vehicle to request: "Cool as Ice" or "Under the Cherry Moon"?  In the end, I couldn't say no to Prince, let alone Prince as a Jazz Age gigolo whose seduction technique consists of sarcastically insulting women.  And it's in black-and-white, so you know it's classy.  But still, "Cool as Ice" is pretty boss.

5. Masters of the Universe (1987): Do not fear "Masters of the Universe"!  The combination of Dolph Lundgren as He-Man, Frank Langella as Skeletor, a plot about the power of music, and plenty of mid-budget pre-CGI special effects makes this a tasty block of cheese.  Teela is pretty badass here, unlike in the cartoon where she spends all her time getting kidnapped and teaching Orko not to eat the drug berries.

6. Super Mario Brothers (1993): This is not the worst film I've ever seen in the theater.  The worst film I've ever seen in the theater is "Nine Months," starring Hugh Grant.  This is the second worst.

7. Love Stinks (1999): Comedies are notoriously hard to riff.  That said, what we have here is an attempt to promote French Stewart, a.k.a. the squinty guy from "Third Rock from the Sun," as a romantic leading man.  Also, it's incredibly misogynistic, like "Wicker Man" misogynistic.  Also, it's written and directed by the creator of "Full House."  Also, wow.

8. Punisher: War Zone (2008): The greatest of all the Punishers.  In the opening, the Punisher kills an entire room of gang bosses, each in a different creative way, then jumps on the ceiling and spins around on a ceiling fan spraying bullets.  Wayne Knight is Micro.  There's a thing with a parkour guy and a grenade launcher.  The magic of the movies.
(Editor: This is a completely unsurprising choice, BTW.  http://skin-horse.com/comics/2011-09-07Mitchell_pounced.jpg )

9, The Spirit (2008): There is no way I can physically make it through this film without people in the TV insulting it for me.  I'm coming to you for help.

10. Atlas Shrugged: Part I (2011): This is going to happen, right?

Shaenon, aside from writing and drawing "Narbonic", a story of mad science, gerbils and forensic linguistics and "Skin Horse", covering government bureaucracy, transvestites and psychoanalyzing lions, also writes "Smithson" and has also worked at Viz and written several stories for Marvel Comics. Which involved the Mole Man, but that still counts.

And the trailer to "Love Stinks", which is as bad as described.
