Rank Player One. Ready?

What did we all think, sirs?
Earlier today I severed my own head and attached it to the bell of this baritone saxophone.

The movie is perfect riffing material because it’s

A: not a comedy, and
B. an instance where the director tried and failed.

Also, the riffs were hilarious. One of Rifftrax’s best!

This was great.  Their best work of the year.  Some of the best of all time.  I just wished they had been able to go a whole movie without a Nick Nolte joke.  They were so close.
I'm not particularly religious, and I don't really like Muppets, but I do love word play.

Definitely one of the best MP3 Riffs. One of the best riffs this year period in fact. The subject material just couldn't possibly lend itself better to Rifftrax.

Man, I've never been a fan of Spielberg but was this dumb. And ugly to look at (can you say that about any other Spielberg film?). And the guy who does nothing but play video games in his room and has never kissed a girl subtext was hilarious.
Wow.
Dumb.
The riffing during the Shining sequence was particularly hilarious. A really good one if one of the most painful to watch movies they've ever riffed.
I give it a 9

This was one where it almost felt like the guys were heckling the movie. And the movie deserved it. I remember thinking, really early in the movie before I realized how much I would grow to hate it later on, that the riffs seemed a little mean. But before it was over, I was fully onboard with wanting to tear this awful movie to pieces.
I gave it the equivalent of a "B".

Everything about this was laughably awful. I have no idea why every bad guy wasn't a mirrior image of Terry Silver from Karate Kid 3, since they were that over the top ridiculous and it fit the theme. The guys were the only redeemable thing about it.
