Will be interested to see what you think of the Episode 1 riff.
This won't be happening. You may have noticed that every riff listed is a Full Movie riff. That's for a reason. I dislike the Just the Jokes process of setting up. Consider it laziness but I don't like looking into whether or not the riff was made for my version of the movie. Even if it was, I don't enjoy the sync up process. Then once its actually synced there's a good chance I'll be pausing things to step away at some point.
These are all minor things but they add up to enough of a barrier that it ruins the enjoyment of simply putting on a movie for me.
Rollergator is in my top 5. I can understand why people don't get the humor of it though.
Rollergator rewards the pain with great laughs. It's one of those badge of honor riffs. Like The Room or Birdemic. If you can make it through Rollergator, you can make it through anything.
I actually re-watched Rollergator in response to these replies and found myself enjoying it more than I remember. Maybe the awful movie has some charm? lol
I stand by a lot of my initial criticisms but I don't think I'd score it quite so low anymore. The opening 5-8 minute credit sequence is really well done up until the actual Gator is introduced. The recurring riffs on the power lines is fun and the ending credits are wonderful. Strong start, strong finish but the main chunk of the movie still doesn't work for me. If I had rank it again I'd probably score it a 4.
I'm glad this riff has its fans though as I don't want to discourage anyone from having a good time.
I'll be updating this list on the next major Rifftrax wide sale as I've been gradually adding to my wishlist. Can't wait!
Edit: Inauguration Day Sale! Expect some updated ratings in the next week or two!
