RIFFTRAX PLAYOFFS ROUND 2 HEAT 6
« on: November 23, 2006, 07:45:55 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.

Two movies about saving the earth from other worldly foes.  Which one is more strange though...the meteor, or John Travolta's hair?  Vote!

+1!  It would be a tragedy to NOT have Battlefield Earth, regardless of the choices.  Besides, I'd vote AGAINST Armageddon simply to avoid lining Michael Bay's pockets, and FOR B.E. because it's based on the "works" of L. Ron Hubbard!  Think of the hilarity, people!!!

This one is a shocker so far. Maybe all our Scientologists are still trying to silently carve their turkeys or wompas or whatever they eat for Thanksgiving...
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.

Perhaps people think that Baffle-filled Twerp is a shoo-in to be riffed at some point in time anyway.

But I ask why not allow that day to be sooner rather than later?
my entry made my girlfriend laugh a few times, the best I can hope for really.

I'd say Whalberg definately qualifies as really good.

I picked Armageddon and here's why:  Battlefield Earth is a disaster.  A complete and utter waste of celluloid.  The thing is, everybody knows this.  Armageddon made a huge amount of money and is held by some people as good movie, when in my view it's almost as bad as BE.  Riffing on Battlefield Earth would be like picking on the ugly, deformed kid.  Armageddon is the smarmy jock asshole.   ;D

Ahh Armageddon. Quite possibly my favorite Blockbuster Review riff... (Content edited by shoddy memory.)

Two words:

Michael Bay

His time has come...
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!

Battlefield Earth - it's the easiest for me to get a copy of (plus they're showing it like crazy on the premium cables these days for who knows why).
This iRiff will only be on sale for another few hours. Get it while it's cheap!

Mike said he'd do Battlefield earth and it sounds like it deserves it.

My thoughts exactly. But still very hard to choose.

I voted for Armageddon just because I have it (and I'm greedy like that, I'd rather them riff a movie I have).  I've never seen Battlefield Earth completely but I have seen parts of it while flipping channels.  If I were to vote on "worse" movie, it would win.  At least Armageddon can hold my interest (and of the bijillin meteor movies released that year, it was the best).

Battlefield Earth is a complete disaster, but it is Armegeddon for me for many reasons......all of the bad science (such as raining on the asteroid, grass growing on the asteroid, NASA only seeing this Texas sized rock 18 days before impact, etc.), Ben Affleck, Michael Bay, being overly loud, no drama whatsoever, and Michael Bay!!!!
