I'm really surprised I'm the only vote for World War Z.  It's an incredibly silly movie.

When Patience inadvertently happens upon a dark secret her employer is hiding, she finds herself in the middle of a corporate conspiracy. What happens next changes Patience forever.

Like any wildcat, she's dangerous, elusive and untamed. Her adventures are complicated by a burgeoning relationship with Tom Lone, a cop who has fallen for Patience but cannot shake his fascination with the mysterious Catwoman, who appears to be responsible for a string of crime sprees plaguing the city.”

The children of the Banks family are quite out of control and have driven off their latest nanny. The next day, as a line of nannies await outside the Banks home, a breeze rises up and blows them all away, leaving only Mary Poppins, who arrives via umbrella. She takes charge of the children. First she takes them to the park and introduces them to Bert, teaching the children to look past appearances. As the children relate their adventures to their father, George, he becomes irate and orders them to speak of Poppins no longer, dragging them along to his bank. Unfortunately, the children start a run on the bank, and the children are lost in the chaos, ending up in London's East End. There Bert finds them and brings them back home, where Mrs. Banks asks him to look after the children on Poppins' day off. The children are whisked away to the rooftops where a gathering of chimneysweeps lead them dancing across London. George is suspended by the bank, but he realizes that his children are more important than his job and returns home, laughing. At that point, Poppins must leave as the wind has changed. And so she leaves as her intellectually distinct cousin, Shari, heads towards Springfield USA.”

Hmm. I thought that it got nominated back in the duck era, but I guess it wasn't.

(And I had to change maybe a half dozen characters between this year's and last year's entry for this.)

And yes, yes.

http://www.rifftrax.com/iriffs/cinester-theater/cinester-theater-presents-back-future

In a desperate search to find a relationship creepier than an old mad scientist and a teenage boy, Doc Brown invents a time machine so the teenage boy can go back and make out with his teenage mother. Much adventure, Lea Thompson cleavage, high school bullies in their mid twenties, and retribution via manure ensues.
 
This movie is most known for: Started the trend of white wild hair that became so popular in the 80s among men in their 80s.
     Redefined the term "shitfaced".
     Introduced the world to Crispin Glover. No amount of appologies will ever be enough.

Noted riffs:
(Who is that guy? I don't know, but I'm going to find out.) --- "with my vagina"  [this riff was a huge hit with the 6 year old in our group we accidentally watched this riff with]
(I've got to tell you about the future!) --- "It rules! We got Nintendo!"
"I finally got rid of that damn dog!"
(Doc gets out of time machine for the first time, large cloud of smoke.) --- "Aint nuthin' but a G thing, baybe!"
"My turn!"
"I'll punch you."
"I've invented the Remote Control Vehicular Manslaughter Device."
 
 
About the riff: If there was ever a riff that disproved the "you can't riff a comedy" rule, it would be this one. (Thrifty, keep quiet!) A fucking hilarious movie and a genuine classic in it's own right. Yet the riff here truly only ADDS to the experience and complements it in a way that few riffing groups can. This is the riff that made Cinester Theater a MUST BUY for me, and I am really glad they eventually riffed the trilogy.

Available on Netflix Instant? No.

Dang, wish I remembered this one.  With the Star Wars Holiday Special VOD, this seems possible now.  Double Dragon would be good too.
