Rangoon Rifflets: Mood of San Francisco
« on: July 11, 2013, 06:38:10 PM »
Rangoon Rifflet: Doozy Bots (US SD Gundam) Promo!

Fun Fact: Gundam almost came to the US in 1991.
Less Fun Fact: If it had, it would have been this.

Join Starchibald and Sunny Jim as they riff the promo for Doozy Bots, the kid-laiden early-90s-tastic import of the SD Gundam concept. If you're really into surfer talk, tiny robots and innumerable kid sidekicks, then prepare to lament this series' failure to launch.

Everyone else, prepare to be grateful with... the DOOZY BOTS!

(edit: Moving to using one thread as not to overflow the forum)

Rangoon Riffs: Don't Touch!

Combovers, explosives and a kickin' soundtrack. That's pretty much the 1970s, right?

We're back in the groove with this funky little short from the '70s! And by "funky" we mean "it stinks". Learn all about the dangers of spontaneous combustibles generation and tragic hairstyles in "Don't Touch!"

Am I allowed to reply here? Really like the explosives short. Now I know what to do when they spontaneously materialize in my garage. Keep up the great work!

You're always welcome to reply on any of our threads. Glad you enjoyed. Especially since we've got a new one:

Rangoon Rifflet: Robocop 2014!

Murdered, rebuilt, stripped of humanity, forced to perform at the whim of a mega-corporation... that's what the original 'Robocop' story went through. Murphy got it pretty rough too

Join Sunny Jim and Starchibald as they give the trailer to Robocop's 2014 remake the riffing it so richly deserves.

Rangoon Rifflet: Day Without Numbers!

Stupid numbers. What did they ever do for us? Apparently keep another demonic hellsprite at bay. Bad film cuts, needle-in-aer voiceovers and a dullard even by 1950s standards await you in "Day Without Numbers".

Rangoon Riffs: The Haunted Mouth - Guest Starring Obscurus Lupa!

Rangoon Riffs: The Haunted Mouth - Guest Starring Obscurus Lupa!

It's a Halloween miracle as Obscurus Lupa trick-or-treats her way to the Isle of Rangoon and she's brought a 1970's Educational Film about dental hygiene with her! Don't worry about Starchibald and Sunny Jim, they more or less brought this on themselves.

Necco wafers, haunted mansions, proper brushing technique and Caesar Romero await in... THE HAUNTED MOUTH!

Rangoon Rifflets: Fateful Findings

This may be the "The Room" for... well, for the same generation as "The Room" was, but... look, you get the idea. Holy wow.

Sunny Jim and Starchibald hack into the outright fascinating trailer for "Fateful Findings", a movie sure to end up the subject of many a reviewerverse episode.

Fixed.
And the riff was good. Prefer the longer ones, just because then we get the puppet segments, but these "rifflets" are a nice snack. Like riff Combos.


Nameless horse? Hello?

"Act now!"---You first!

And the riff was good

[size=200]Rangoon Rifflet: Sugar Bear in Head Over Heels![/size]

Ahh, Sugar Bear. His sonorous tones and sweet, crispy cereal helped us all forget that he was a psychotic murder-beast who heeded no law but his own. Sunny Jim and Starchibald bear witness to one of his unstoppable rampages in this pre-regulation short cartoon, "Head Over Heels"!

Rangoon Riffs: Adventure in Telezonia!

Sunny Jim and Starch face the return of the Mysterious Malefactor!

After months of slacking, the Malefactor is back and he has a disturbing marionette-filled short all about the joys and miseries of telephone operation for the Rangoons. He's out to make up for lost time but an even more powerful force has its claws in his would-be victims: Starbound!*

Take a trip to the distant past, when telephones had dials, busy signals and sufficient mass to fell a mature bison with a single blow in... Adventure in Telezonia!

*This video also doubles as a review of the Starbound Beta.

Rangoon Rifflets: The Cautious Twins

Even a good message can be told poorly. Try and tell an important message with ear-bleeding calliope "music", clunky forced rhyming and animation that makes "Deputy Dawg" look like "Akira", and you've got a disaster even before people get to the horrific world you're setting up. There's more creeps on the streets in this short than in "Hobo With A Shotgun".

So just because "The Cautious Twins" has good advice at its core... really, what the hell, short?

Rangoon Riffs: What to do in a Gas Attack: Feat Diamanda Hagan & The Omega!

Sunny Jim's latest hair-brained scheme has landed the Rangoons face-to-face with Diamanda Hagan, and has landed them both face-to-mask with the Omega! Will bonding over a civil defense short lead to a stronger, more iron-fisted rule for the Isle or will Sunny Jim wind up a fashionable coat?

Learn the answers to these burning questions (as well as how to neutralize a chemical weapons attack using enema bottles) in... What to do in a Gas Attack!

HELL YEAH! I love Diamanda Hagan's videos! And to get her and her wife riffing, that's awesome.
