Now Available Unriffed - James Nguyen's Replica
« on: January 11, 2017, 09:21:24 AM »

http://www.rifftrax.com/replica-unriffed

Replica, the never-before-released film from the mind of James Nguyen (Birdemic: Shock and Terror, Julie & Jack), is here for the very first time!

In the near future, in the hallowed halls of clip-art adorned offices, technicians clone organs from stem cells using COOL near-future technology. This is directly to the benefit of Joe, who has a shiny new kidney, which is good because he’s so aggressively average he makes Caspar Milquetoast look like Casper van Dien! He’s got two suits, a job in sales, a new girlfriend, a dead girlfriend, and another new girlfriend—or is it the same dead girlfriend? It’s all part of the fun!

Witness the jaw-dropping “action” that will have you saying “They couldn’t possibly show that car backing out again!”

Embrace the Birdemic-level charm of Replica!

Feel like a little more information is needed here, but it seems this is an until-now unreleased James Nguyen film. A Riff is forthcoming, but if you're chomping at the bit for more Nguyen, you can download it in all its unriffed glory right now. Here's the AV Club article that alerted me to its presence, which includes quotes from Nguyen and the Rifftrax crew.

There will likely be questions about how the riff will become available to those that decided to buy this unriffed version. Hopefully someone from Rifftrax will see this and answer those questions. :^)

I don't see any questions yet... you pretty much nailed it. We're most likely going to do it, and we know a lot of people enjoy buying some of these oddities "as-is" without any riffing.

In honor of REPLICA and James Nguyen, if you own a Riff and you're buying the UnRiffed version we'll give you a 50% discount.

Also there will be a "bundle discount" where if you buy the Riff and UnRiffed versions at once you'll get 25% off each product. (So, 50% blended discount.)

Sounds pretty fair. Is that for a limited time or ongoing? Also does it go in the other direction; will I get a discount on Replica riffed if I buy it unriffed now?

No interest in unriffed films, but EXTREMELY INTERESTED in a new James Nguyen riff.
FINE

It said in the Email they sent out today that the discount goes both ways, so if you buy it unriffed now, you'll get the riff half-off.

Can't say I'm totally uninterested in unriffed riffable movies, but not interested in this one. I am however very excited about the riffed version and very happy that we know the release date of the riffed version in advance. One of the things I miss on the forum here was the old 20 questions threads before new releases as it allowed me to plan my weekend entertainment in advance. Admittedly since that time releases are far more frequent but now I'm always disappointed on weeks when we don't get a new release.

I don't mind the idea of unriffed movies, since it might help Rifftrax get some movies that the makers otherwise wouldn't sell the rights to. But this is a James Nguyen movie! You could drive by his house and throw a rock with a $20 wrapped around it through Nguyen's window and it would be more than his movies are worth.

Well, I already own the Criterion Boxed Set of Nguyen's works so I'll just sit this one out and wait for the riff.
