I enjoyed it, though I'll agree with some of the criticisms here in that the riffers seemed a little off.  I liked the intro, and there were a couple of very funny moments but what the hell is with that ending? I understand you have financial problems, but that's the best you can come up with? It's like the movie stops completely.

They ran out of money in 67 or 68 so the movie did stop completely, nothing was done again until 72 when they tacked on that cheap ending, I guess they didn't even have enough money to get the original 2 actors in the suites back in for a few hours to do voice over work....

I agree with most of the comments here... I want to like it so much but I still feel an awkwardness/coldness/stiffness about it that I'm hoping will change. having said that, one of my biggest laughs came during the god awful final 15 minutes, when Mary Jo says "Hey what's this button with the picture of a chair with a spring under it?" I probably laughed longest and hardest at that one, but I'm weird that way. I also loved the "Why does it smell like feet?" one... overall, not bad, but I want it to feel more natural... keep practicing guys!

This might be me. But i kinda liked The Oozing Skull a little more. I know that its harder to watch. But for me, Being that the Oozing Skull is far more ridicules movie made the riffing somewhat better. But thats just me. This was good to. But it was hard to get through the last 10 minutes.

My favorite lines are

"Yeah im from the 70's what of it"

"Hold me closer Doomsday Dancer"

"We Will We Will Coxon"

I've been listening intently.

My big question is,

Is Cinematic Titanic 2 worth the 15 bucks or so plus shippage and handling and the several days wait?

I certainly thought so.  It's not like they are cranking out a dvd every week that you have to pay $15.00 for.  It's supposedly once every 6 weeks or so.

I feel their most recent CT is worth the money. I would rank it as maybe a so-so rifftrax.... but a much better effort this time around. Things felt a little more natural after the first quarter of the movie (the riffing felt a bit too scripted and not natural at times). I felt the first CT was just okay and this one a bit better. If nothing else... it;'s good to support riffers. The last portion of the movie felt a lot like "DEEP HURTING" from the Sandstorm scene in one of the MSTK hercules movies. It wouldn't end!

Personally, I feel Incognito Cinema Warriors is superior in every way... as soon as Rifftrax puts out their new one in August, I'm on it!!

I thought this one was really good...much better than Oozing Skull. The jokes seemed sharper and the skits were all-around better, imo. Definite improvement, for me, over the first one. I'm not saying I think it's got all the kinks worked out, but it seems they're getting there.
