PLAYOFFS NOMINATION THREAD
« on: November 14, 2006, 11:54:45 AM »
Ok, to begin the actual Rifftrax Playoffs, we are taking nominations that will be randomly broken into brackets for voting.
Our original list had 145 movies on it, once we whittled down some of the obvious 'too random, too obscure, too difficult to procure' entries.

Please nominate only 3 movies. If you have more, just save them til the next playoff round. Do not fear if you say the same movie as someone else, that just lets us be able to whittle easier if we need to. If something has 6 votes already, then it is more likely to make it into the playoffs than the one guy posting 'Starship troopers 2 dude!'

I am setting a Friday afternoon, 5 pm CST cutoff for nominations. Then I will break down the nominations, get them into brackets and get the actual first round up somtime on Saturday, so we can start voting over the weekend.

Copying in text of another message :
For practicality's sake I would steer clear of the following due to comments made in interviews etc...

Anime
Extremely Violent Movies (like ultra splatter flicks...)
Movies with a lot of nudity, sex
Movies chock full of F bombs and such (why nominating Pulp Fiction is likely never to really go anywhere)
Movies that are really hard to find on DVD (like old Out of Print items, Star Wars Holiday Special etc...)
(ties in the above one) movies that are very obscure , such as I would love to see Superfuzz but it's very hard to find on DVD and pretty damn obscure.


Just offering what I think are realistic tips to end up having one Mike would consider doing.

Grapes? I hate grapes, I can't stand grapes. I loathe grapes. All kinds of grapes. I hate green grapes and I hate purple grapes. I hate grapes with seeds, I hate grapes without seeds. I hate them peeled and nonpeeled. I hate them in bunches, one at a time and in small groups of twos and threes.

Yes.  In the original post he said it would help if some of them had to be cut.  The ones with multiple nominations will probably not get cut.

I nominate:

Grease
Pretty In Pink
Billy Jack

I figure the first two have a legitimate shot at being riffed in the future. 

Grease is such an iconic movie, but there is still a lot of material to work with there. 

Pretty In Pink is sure to make for a great Rifftax.

The only longshot of my picks is Billy Jack.  Not because of availabilty, it is still in print from Warner for under 10 bucks.  But instead because of a very brief rape scene in the movie.  I'm not sure Mike wants to cross that bridge in a movie yet.  The rest of the movie would make for a perfect Rifftrax, you've got indians, hippies, rednecks, and a tiny Chinese dude as Tom Laughlin's fight double (not since Plan 9 has there been a more dubious stand-in).

Scratch Batman. I like the Fast and the Furious...    I mean, I don't "like" The Fast and the Furious...
It's more like the way a person enjoys watching a Nascar race. You know. Just for the crashes and deaths.
