Meet the Feebles
« on: August 16, 2007, 12:24:55 PM »
I think the movie Meet the Feebles needs to be riffed

it's like a R rated version of the Muppet show, with allot of  puppet violence, sex, and drug abuse.  this movie is cheezy that its been in for a good riffing. what more could u want in a horrible movie?


I can't believe Peter Jackson would make a movie like this back in the 80's. And yes, its the same Peter Jackson who directed King Kong

Your definition of "horrible" differs from mine.  I love Meet the Feebles.  It's hilariously twisted and quite well made.

I can't believe Peter Jackson would make a movie like this back in the 80's.

You've apparently never seen Bad Taste or Braindead.

Braindead (aka dead alive) was a pretty funny  movie, especially with the kung-fu priest

Actually I usually say "I can't believe this is the same Peter Jackson who made Meet the Feebles and Bad Taste and Braindead!" when referencing King Kong and LOTR.

Heh.  Same here, though I think his first foray into "respectable" cinema, Heavenly Creatures, is still perhaps the one I can't really reconcile him with.

No.

Well, let me rephrase that.

Hell no.

Look, there's a good number of people on this site who are rabid Rifftrax fans who won't watch the Rifftrax of the Grudge or 300 because of the graphic nature of those films. Do you think that they're going to be willing to buy the Rifftrax for this, a film that is exponentially more graphic? For that matter, what exactly do you expect Mike and Kevin to be joking about during, say, the fly reporter eating offal scene or the Sodomy number?  I think you're more likely to see Mike riffing The Killing Fields than you would be to see him riff this.

I can't see this one being riffed and not for any reasons mentioned above.  Talk about hard to find.  I ordered one off Amazon and it took almost 2 1/2 months to get to me.  Granted that was quite a while ago but still.  I don't think I've ever seen one in stores.

I do like HC though. DEAD ALIVE (as it is known in the states) was the reason I bought a laser disc player. The VHS was $100 priced for rental but the LD was only $40. Granted I did have to spend $500 on the player but eventually it paid for itself.

I thought Heavenly Creatures was pretty terrific, though it's not the sort of thing I'd watch over and over again.  Took me ages to realize the chubby girl grew up to be Charlie's stalker in Two and a Half Men.

I gots to get me a region 2 copy of Braindead one of these days.  Dead Alive is apparently missing some key scenes (i.e., just exactly how do Void's legs end up getting separated from each other?)

I think I ordered my copy from a Canadian store, back in the time where it wasn't available in the US. Since then though, it's become a bit more common.  I've even seen it in Best Buy from time to time.

It is in desperate need of a special edition. I have the disc from Dead Alive and it is a freaking mess.


One a side note while looking around for Feebles stuff there is a PJ fansite hosted on the onering.net that has one of my old band's (The Feebles) cover of the main theme to Bad Taste!

http://tbhl.theonering.net/badtaste/media.html for the page and
http://tbhl.theonering.net/badtaste/multimedia/Feebles_Bad_Taste_Remake.mp3 for the song!

Speaking of Pete Jackson, I just watched the HD version of Frighteners.  I liked the movie, but the "making of" is crazy! It's almost four hours long.  It's pretty interesting though.  Yes, I watched it all.   ;D
