Thoughts?
« on: November 01, 2006, 02:07:06 PM »
I've just finished this rifftrax and I must say, it's another strong outing for Kevin and Mike.  There's much fun to be had with the racial riffs (particularly for the Viceroy's characters) and Jake Lloyd gets a bit of a working over too.

I just watched it and I have to say that this was easily the best Rifftrax yet!  And the riffing ranks right up there with the best that MST3K ever did.

Yes, they tear into Jar Jar and Anakin and Lucas and midichlorians!

I don't want to spoil any specific riffs, so I won't mention any of my favs.  I'll just say that it is non-stop funny from start to finish!  If you are on the fence about getting this one, hop off that fence and buy it already!  You won't regret it!

Also, I want to add that there is one riff that may be rendered pointless after the new version of this comes out next year where they replace the puppet Yoda with a CGI Yoda.  You'll understand what I'm talking about when you watch the Rifftrax.

Being an Asian American, specifically Filipino, I must say that Mike and Kevin made me double over many a time with the Trade Fed riffing! In the first ten minutes, Torgos and I were rollin' in the invisible isles of the office!!

"Tora Tora!!"

I'm in the proccess of watching it all through right now - and I am totally enjoying it! My favorite yet! I hope we do seuqels soon!! (Cuz Ep Two REALLY sucks....) hehe

I haven't even started watching it yet and I'm already sitting here cracking up at the chapter stops.

My very favorite is:

Priceless.  Does Mike write these, or one of other staffers?

Completely hilarious. I don't think I'm employing hyperbole when I say this is the funniest RiffTrax yet. Mike's growing frustration and lashings out at Jar Jar are gut-bustingly humorous.

I usually listen to a track twice before reserving judgement but I'll take a chance this time and just say....

Thank you, Mike and Kevin, for giving this movie the thorough ass-kicking it so richly deserved.  I hadn't watched the entire thing in years and I didn't realize just how rough a ride it was when you don't skip to the final light saber sequence.  A few times I wondered if the hate was a little too much and at times I was even a little depressed to see the wasted potential of what Episode One could have been but as the tedium and my anger slowly grew, I found myself pretty much agreeing (and laughing) with everything you said and that helped a lot.  So, thanks again!

Sincerely,

Megane 6.7

P.S. Special kudos for the Psychonauts reference!  It was enjoyed.   :D

By far my favorite team Rifftrax.  Great MST shout-outs to Barbed Wire and SidehackersBring on Ep II.  It's the only way our long national nightmare will be over.

What do you think, PenisHead?

This rifftrax was friggin awesome! I'm betting the next one is Jurassic Park. I mean they've already trashed a Lucas movie. Why not move on down the road to a Spielberg movie? I like Jurassic Park. But I wouldn't mind seeing it riffed.
Aaahh! This movie just throws you violently into the next scene!

I'm so glad they got around to doing one of my top Rifftrax choices!  I've only watched the first couple of minutes so far, but I'd like to give a big THANK YOU to Mike and Kevin for adding the phrase "pants-crappingly insane" to my vocabulary!  I can't wait to see the rest of this one!  Few movies deserve it more.

Wow, great riff, and wow, does this movie ever have it coming.

Fave riffs:
"sign here..."
It's as if Roger Rabbit was redesigned by Satan.
Insane clown Sith!
"We also have a copier here that saves us $30 a month."
I thought Eli Wallach died!
"Yeah, but he lean back slightly and beep?"
Just squeeze an eye stalk!
Less action! More planning!
Lowly Worm is out for blood!
I think he just coughed up a half-digested kangaroo mouse!
He likes palpate various parts of your body. It's what he does.
:::coughhorseshitcough:::
"The robotic dung beetles have us, gentlemen."
"You...have...a big booger right there."

I'm sure the Sklar brothers are pleased they got a shout out.

Man that was a great one. Up there with Star trek. I loved the lines about jar jar. Wonder when the next one with Bill will be

That was the best Rifftrax.  Thanks Mike, Kev, and everyone.  Please do Ep 2.

That's some mighty high praise there, Mr. Fan of the Month!  The best MSTs set the bar awfully high and I can't wait to see this! I've dreamt of it being torn to shreds for so long now...

Why in the world is there going to be a new version replacing the puppet with CGI? Given that this movie was a total disgrace to the franchise why are the bothering?   ::)   No need to answer, just asking in rhetorical wonderment...

The Yoda puppet has crack eyes.  It really needs to be fixed to match the rest of the prequels.  Or not.
