RIFFTRAX PLAYOFFS HEAT 4
« on: November 18, 2006, 03:52:15 AM »
Heat four of six.
Vote early, vote often! Well once anyway...

I ended up using 2 other movies from the old playoffs poll , one to make an nice even number and one because I had a mistake and listed a movie twice in my generator.
Pairings were randomized by a sequence generator, so some heats are more competitive than others, but I think was the fair way to do it. Besides, the non-winners this time can just be entered into the next playoffs.

Please vote, campaign, post yard signs whatever. Election day ends on Thanksgiving, and the winners will be advanced into the next round.

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.

I had to vote for my own nomination.  Again, probably the least likely to be already in the Rifftrax pipeline and therefore the most deserving of your votes!

Vote for James Spader, Jon Cryer, Molly Ringwald, and Andrew Whatshisface!  Pretty In Pink in 2006!!!!

Hmmm...

although my original entry is in this bracket (The Car), I know it's not going to get all that many votes, especially with its competition.

I'm going to have to go with Commando. It is just so rediculously over the top, and it's an 80s Cheesefest that tries to be serious. There's never been a more deserving movie!

Riff away!

Double Dragon... Come on, you know you want it  ;)
In brightest day, in darkest night
No DVD shall escape their sight
Let those who tremble in bad movies light,
Beware the power, Rifftrax's might!

Ben Affleck needs a royal ass kicking by rifftrax (unless they want to tackle Gigli)

Ben has got a couple of movies in the playoffs this round. Does that say something about him?

Don't you guys see?  Indiana Jones was intentionally campy (right?). 

Commando was NOT.  You gotta riff Commando.  Arnold's more unstoppable than a Sherman Tank in a field of wheat.  The way he single-handedly mows down that hapless LatinAmerican Army at the end....even the part where he gets trapped in a tool shed, dispatching about 5 well armed guerillas   using garden tools.  The one-liners are sick with unsubtlety.  There's that chubby Aussie bad guy who was once a much leaner mohawker in The Road Warrior- the fight at the end is worth the riff alone!  He gets electrocuted at one point which only energizes him more to mount a furious final attempt at our hulky hero!  Rae Dawn Chong?  A young Alyssa Milano?  Hilarious bad guys that all get their very own one-liner ("you're a funny guy Sully, I like you.  That's why I'm going to kill you last....)?  I'm letting off some steam like Bennett at the end, and I rest my case.

Well, seeing as Gigli was intended to be a comedy, I can't see it being considered as a future RiffTrax, as Mike has stated that he didn't want to riff comedies. I honestly think that there's not much room for riffing, anyway, aside from Christopher Walken's really crappy speech that makes absolutely no sense.

I thought Gigli's sole intent was to hurt people.

I love how the British use "crap" as an adjective. I've been trying to use it that way myself, but people just look at me confused. Not that they ever don't look at me confused...

Heh, actually I thought that the movie wasn't awful, just really, really mediocre. However, it looks much worse than it actually is when you consider the fact that the director was also responsible for much better films like Scent of a Woman. When you put Gigli in with that film, it does look like a contender for worst movie ever made. But there are much, much, much worse films in existence, like Dwain Esper's Maniac or Howard the Duck.

I voted for Pretty In Pink. Whenever I see it on t.v. I can only get through a few minutes of it before I lunge for the remote in order to switch it off. Perhaps with Mike's help I'll be able to watch the whole thing.
Aaahh! This movie just throws you violently into the next scene!
