RIFFTRAX PLAYOFFS ROUND 2 HEAT 5
« on: November 23, 2006, 07:43:07 PM »
This is Round two of the Rifftrax Playoffs.  I'm using this set-up:

(W= winner of round 1 heat, R=1st runner up of round 1 heat)

Heat 1 = W1 vs R6
Heat 2 = W2 vs R5
Heat 3 = W3 vs R4
Heat 4 = W4 vs R3
Heat 5 = W5 vs R2
Heat 6 = W6 vs R1

The poll will run until Wednesday Nov 29th.

A match-up of some truly out of this world sci-fi.  Vote!

Even though I picked Godzilla in the first round, I'm changing my vote to Starship Troopers.  Godzilla is terrible movie, while Starship Troopers a good/terrible movie.

Had to go with GINO... makes a mockery of the original movies and thats saying something considering the sequels themselves did a good job on their own.
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!

Never seen either, but I know Troopers wasn't that good. So I'll go with it.

But you have a doubt that maybe Godzilla wasn't as bad? Matthew Broderick battles a giant iguana in New York.

I haven't seen Godzilla but I did see the promo around Godzilla and I have no doubt that it's worse than Starship Troopers.  I could be wrong but I doubt it!

I've seen them both, but I'm not sure if I could say which was worse. They're both bad in much the same way. I think maybe these two shouldn't have been matched up so soon.

Starship Troopers is an actually good film. I'm astonished it's received as many votes as it has. Well, I enjoyed it, so did pretty much everyone I know, but it takes all sorts I suppose.

I enjoyed Starship Troopers, certainly a lot more than Godzilla. Besides it had Clancy Brown in it!

I agree Starship Troopers is a fairly good movie but I voted for it. I think Rifftrax doesn't need to go exclusively with stinker flicks. Variety is the spice of life!
