Rank a Riff!
« on: April 18, 2013, 03:40:53 PM »
I give this one a shrugging Five (Average.)  I'm just not generally amused by musicals period and I think the riffing here was somewhat tepid. There were plenty of good moments and lines here but, really, I don't think the movie offered much.

9.25. I think this will go down as  a classic Rifftrax.  :clap:

I gave it a solid 9. Great riffing for a horrible movie but there were a few missed opportunities. One glaring example for me was:

I give it an 8. The riffing was top-notch and they did great with what they had.
2 points for the treatment of the campy black guy alone.  ;D

I just really, really hate musicals. Especially ones with religious messages.

Having seen this film before , I can only say 'the apple" is a tripped out version of 'the rocky horror picture show' and all John Water's films.especially 'Pink Flamingos'! Looking forward  to see what Mike, Bill and Kevin riff. Warning-as in 'The Room'...never take any mind altering substances as you watch 'The apple'
The speed song speaks out as the best lines in a musical ever

When the complete history of MST3k, Cinematic Titanic, and Rifftrax is written ($49.95 MSRP, the perfect coffeetable book), this will be up there with Manos and Space Mutiny. I don't think I've watched an opening of a Rifftrax as much as I've watched "Do the BIM" with the guy screeching like his foot was driven over. Add the horrible songs and wacked-out ending ands this is a classic.

Some minor quibbles, but a 10 overall. Nice job, guys.

(edit: doh BIM, not VIM. I don't need to get a bunch of emacs users upset)

Yeah, that guy screeching his opening song was watched by me several times too.  And his later dancing in his stripper underwear showing off his butt and his totally non-shaped body had me laughing.

I have actually suggested "the wiz".  Man at least the Wiz had some clever sets and Michael Jackson...this seriously was worse.  And for Pandi....random 180 in her character development for no reason.

I have a few of the songs stuck in my head. They're pretty bad but then I have a taste for kitsch.

Another eight for me which isn't a bad score. I just think the movie overwhelmed the riffing at times if you know what I mean. There was an MST like that but which one is escaping at  present.
