LOC - Top 53 Most Requested Rifftrax of 2014
« on: April 23, 2014, 11:25:36 AM »
Here's how it works!

Participants were asked to send  a list of your 25 movies they wanted to see a Rifftrax for. 10 ballots were received, and the movies were ranked on a point system allowing 25 points for a #1 choice, 24 for a #2, and all the way down to 1 point for #25. The points were added up, and what follows are the selections.

Tiebreakers work like such: If two movies have equal pointage, the movie that appeared on the most lists ranks higher. If those movies appeared on the same amount of lists, then the film ranked higher on the individual list got the higher spot. A movie that was someone's #4 beats another person's #6, for example. And then if titles  were tied, a random choice was made.

Please don't post your lists until the entire list is posted.
Please do complain/kick yourself/pontificate as much as you want, because that's the point!

The Top 50 (53 really) Movies You Want Rifftrax to Riff Countdown 2014 begins now. Let your conversations begin.

Sorry about the delay. I started watching something to grab a screenshot and then it was  an hour and 45 minutes later.


Anyway, here we go. BTW- "Mystery poster"? I got your list but can't find the message it came from so I don't know who actually sent it in. If you recognize your submission, let me know.

49. My Super Ex-Girlfriend - (2006) - 22 points
Since it's a comedy it is unlikely to be riffed. At least by Rifftrax anyway. But I should have had this movie on my list. It's baaaad. And a complete waste of Eddie Izzard.
