I have to admit... I actually liked Jim Carrey as the Riddler.

Really?  He definitely was channeling Frank Gorshin but there's NO reason at ALL to see his package suffocating in lycra....  :speechless:

19. Billy Jack - (1971)- 91 points
(5 of 40 lists. Highest ranking - #1 Compound)


I had Billy Jack on my list, but not that high.  Even though it is probably my number one request, I didn't have it high on my list (#16) because i didn't think that many other people would vote for it.  I probably would have it at number 1 or 2 if I had known.

So...do you think they'll riff on the graphic rape scene in this one?  Or tell you to fast forward through it because they can't cut in like in Sidehackers.

14. Face/Off - (1997)- 109 points
(7 of 40 lists. Highest ranking - #4 annearchist)

Directed by John Woo
Starring John Travolta, Nicolas Cage and Joan Allen

Synopsis:
"Sean Archer has been chasing Castor Troy to avenge his son's death by the hands of the psychotic terrorist for six years. Now that he killed Castor, Sean must find a biological bomb by assuming the identity of Castor Troy by taking his face and being brought in prison. But Troy, who awakes from his coma, takes Archer's face in order to take revenge on him. Now, Troy turns Archer's life upside down by assuming his identity. Will Archer break free from his prison and get his face back, or will Troy have the last laugh?"

Possible Points of Comedy:
-Ed Wood-style weather changes
-John Travolta IS Ghost Rider and Nicolas Cage IS that woman from Hairspray (and dumb jokes like that).
-I'm actually TripeHoundRedux. I was stolen Greg's face and have taken over this list.

Haha you were stolen Greg's face....  that's a funny way of putting it.

I have to admit... I actually liked Jim Carrey as the Riddler.

You'd rather see his package out and breathing freely?!

Oh god, that wasn't exactly phrased well now was it.

Same here. Is Cage the bad guy? Or is Travolta? Or do they both end up playing bad/good guys? And did this movie inspire the first real life face transplant, or did it come after that and was, in turn, inspired BY the first real life face transplant? Also, is it better to be Cage or Travolta?

13. House of the Dead - (2003)- 112 points
(6 of 40 lists. Highest ranking - 2 #2 votes, James of Linhood, Minnesota)

Directed by Uwe Boll
Starring Jonathan Cherry, Tyron Leitso and Clint Howard

Synopsis:
"This film is a prequel to all of the The House of the Dead video games. Set on an island off the coast, a techno rave party attracts a diverse group of college coeds and a Coast Guard officer. Soon, they discover that their X-laced escapades are to be interrupted by zombies and monsters that attack them on the ground, from the air, and in the sea, ruled by an evil entity in the House of the Dead..."

Possible Points of Comedy:
-Hmm, these college losers sure are talented with shotguns and explosives...
-I know, let's introduce every character with a Matrix-style camera shot!
-Well, whatever gets Clint Howard work.

I've always thought that would be the one thing that would prevent them from doing this movie.  I think I've even said as much a few times on this very forum.  It's a shame, because the rest of the movie is very worthy of a Rifftrax.  Just that one scene that isn't.

-The car in the tree scene totally stole from Time Chasers.

I think maybe people have seen enough "good" movie riffs for the time being? I'm thinking apart from some sequels to other rifftrax, we could see a whole bunch of 80s movies in the top 10.

If they are going to do the sequels of other Rifftrax then I think Matrix Reloaded would be a good one.  Only sequel on my list though. 

Had Jurassic Park at 8 and almost had House of the Dead on my list but I don't want to watch that one again.
