As a full-fledged, Action-Figure-Having-In-My-30s, prequel-loving, expanded-universe-reading, Able-to-identify-obscure-characters-whose-names-are-never-spoken, Ewok-Enjoying Star Wars Fan, I support an OT Riff. I figure if you can't laugh at your favorite things, you can't be sure that they're your favorite things. :^)

i would love riffs of the original trilogy to add to my collection! Also, I think riffing a musical would be great, since Kevin and Dis are very musical themselves.

Come on, Greg. Stop putting in fake movies. They never made a sequel to Highlander.

Well put Pak.

Come on, Greg. Stop putting in fake movies. They never made a sequel to Highlander.

Got to love the sequel so horrible that even future bad sequels are embarrassed by it and refuse to acknowledge it happened.  Doesn't this suffer from director's cut syndrome though, what with the "Renegade" version that tries to eliminate the alien references?

I'm sorry, but the Two Towers really doesn't have enough content to really make it work. It's very long and boring with little happening on screen at any given time.

In other words, it's Manos-like in pacing.  That in and of itself can be a source of comedy if done right.

I don't really think that's true. And yes, I can laugh at the OT.  But I don't want to hear Mike Nelson's voice in my mind every time I do it.  It's a little like making fun of a family member--I can do it, but if any of you fuckers do I'll knock your teeth out.

And I think that's true for most people.  I like Mike Nelson. I like Star Wars. I don't want to dislike either one.
I've read the Mad Magazine satires of these movies....I can't see them coming up with enough that's really different to make the OT worth while.

Would it make any difference if the Riffs were on the "special editions" and mostly targeting the horrible changes that in and of themselves seek to destroy the charm of the original versions?  Considering the trilogy has been released three times to date on dvd, two of them only containing this version, and one containing this version with the original cuts as a "special feature" (somehow deluding Lucas and the company into thinking they're not the ONLY reason that edition of the dvds sold) the SEs seem the much more likely target.  Everyone who bought dvds has them, people who don't like Star Wars won't care either way, people who do like Star Wars might find it cathartic to attack the re-release, I know I would.

Xanadu

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

Wow....never saw that before.  That sucked almost as much as the movie did.

BTW....much as Xanadu deserves it, I wish Newton-John's first movie, Toomorrow was on DVD....talk about a turd burger!!  A supposed sci-fi comedy musical featuring a 1960's British Art School band who like listening to elevator music, evidently....and make the New Christie Minstrels sound like James Brown.

Think Rifftrax could manage to do a movie that's on YouTube in sections?   ;)
