Horrible things learned quickly.

I learned this movie isn't quite as bad as I remember.

And that this movie apparently took place on a train of some sort.

This is my first venture into anything that had only one riffer in it, and I gotta say that I grew bored with it about fifteen minutes in. It just seemed like it's too much for just one guy to handle. When there are multiple riffers, there's a sense of being part of something larger. Like you're watching the movie with three other people. This seemed to me like a lone, solitary affair and it was kind of depressing. Not that Matthew Elliot isn't funny, I just think he could have used a little help.

I think it's the type of movie, movies that are more "fun" are better suited to lone riffing, his riff of The Expendables is great.  Movies with boring sections or slow development really need extra riffers so there can be banter between them to fill the voids.

That's an interesting theory. I hadn't thought of that.

I learned that train sets are like  breasts:  made for kids but dads end up playing with them.  Nice one Matthew.
And I'm worse than Hitler.

Are you guys SURE there was a train?  The movie was fairly vague on the subject.

I learned that anyone with Red Eyes is a bad guy..........alway fear the red eyed person.

And if only a Hammer Dracula would have been on the train, all things would have been settled right away.

I learned once again that (IMO) MJE is by FAR the best solo riffer!  I especially liked this choice as it reminds me of my favorite MST3K Shows.  I love the riffs of movies I watched as a kid staying up late to watch my local "Chiller Theater" on Saturday nights.  I am transported back in time to a dim distant past where what was important in life, was local TV fare.  Keep 'em coming Matthew, great work  :clap:
