RIFFTRAX PLAYOFFS HEAT 6
« on: November 18, 2006, 03:56:55 AM »
Heat six of six.
No not that girl from Blossom...

Voting open til Thanksgiving!

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.

"Battlefield Earth" seems to be the most ridiculous movie on the list, and my local library has a copy, so...I voted for that.

By the way, you never specified which "King Kong" is listed on the poll - the 1976 one or the 2005 one (obviously, Mike would never riff on the original, so I assume it's one of the remakes).
This iRiff will only be on sale for another few hours. Get it while it's cheap!

Man, where is Gymkata? I ask you, what sort of poll does NOT include Gymkata? I mean, the DVD is being release in January! American Ninja, but no Gymkata. It makes me cry. :D

Masters Of The Universe

Dolph Lundgren IS He-Man

"I have the power!"
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!

Based on Travolta's constant mugging for the camera alone, Battlefield Earth is a no brainer.  Forrest Whitiker has apologized for this film many times.

Sorry, I meant to specify that. I am making it be the Peter Jackson one just for commonality's sake. There is an entire thread dealing with which one, but I just went with the easiest here.

I know everyone wants to go for Battlefield Earth, but Masters of the Universe is my pick.  Unashamedly awful.

Damn, I should've voted for ET. But then, were it to be Riffed, I would have to watch it again. Nevermind.

I voted for E.T. because I can't watch it without having the urge to puke. I seriously hate that movie. I think I hate a little more than What Lies Beneath, and that's saying something.

Aaahh! This movie just throws you violently into the next scene!
