Will there be a download of this show on rifftrax.com?
« on: August 26, 2016, 04:40:40 AM »
Hi, will there be a download of this show on Rifftrax.com eventually? I know most Rifftrax Live! events are, but in this case, the riffed movie is owned by Toho and they're a bit strict in the IP department. I'm also interested because I slept through some parts of the show (it wasn't sleep-inducing, I was tired because I had worked out at the gym earlier that day) and therefore want to buy the show again for posterity.

I'd like some of the brass at Rifftrax to answer this question for me. Thanks in advance!

I think they did it for the Room, so I wouldn't be surprised.  Someone can correct me if I'm wrong.

They only did a studio MP3 of the Room. Not a VOD of the live show. Mothra was also licensed from Sony for this live show and they haven't been able to put out any of the previous Sony licensed titles (Godzilla, Starship Troopers, Anaconda) as VODs so I doubt they will be able to release this one.  Hopefully a MP3 is coming though....

OK, I thought they used the audio for a live MP3.  Sorry for the mislead sentiment (in retrospect, that would be really hard to do anyway without using the original audio.

Last official word is that there are no plans for a Mothra MP3. Really hope they change their mind. It was a really good Riff and I'd love to hear it again someday.

Maybe they'll at least bring it back for a "Best-Of" show.

That is too bad if they don't do a MP3. Its not that obscure a DVD as far as I know. That would be shame not to be able to hear those riffs again.

That stinks.  I missed seeing Mothra because the theater's replay copy was broken, and it's the only one I haven't seen now...and unless they somehow secure the rights or replay sometime down the road, I'll never get to see it.

We might surpass 7000 backers but not holding out hope for 8000 or more  :-\

I'm fine with surpassing 6250 backers. For me, that was the brass ring.
