I agree with Greg McDuck in that the writing was terrible, and that the actors did their best with it.

PROGRESS REPORT #2 - "The Happening" riffed with Quiptracks

After second viewing, I think even worse of this film. Quiptracks did a good job pointing out a lot of little things I didn't catch on the first time (like the rather large number of train conductors, or the fact that a tiny hole in the roof is the least of your concerns when you're in a Jeep). I can easily call this the worse Shyamlan movie to date.

In direct converse, I can easily call this the best Quiptracks to date! In fact, this is better then the majority of the Rifftraxs out there! You guys are funny as hell and you have an amazing spirit in these projects I just love. "The fair is in town" bit had me laughing for ten minutes solid, and I don't think I ever stopped giggling. Highlights for me:

And that's only scratching the surface. Seriously, guys, two thumbs up! Four star! Here's your riffing Oscar!

EVERYBODY, GO BUY THIS QUIPTRACK NOW!!!

Mike and Co are gonna have to work their asses off to get close to this!

PROGRESS REPORT #3 - "The Happening" riffed with Rifftrax

I know this film line-for-line now! No fact has made me sadder!

Alrighty, so the Rifftrax version, eh, pretty standard stuff. Rifftrax doesn't surprise me as much as it used to, and this seemed like punching the clock for them. A lot of their effort seems to be cramming as many celebrities and pop culture references as they can into a riff. Besides how weak wind is as a bad guy, they never really dig into the movie. There were a few good moments, but not enough to make it stand out.

Fun, but I won't be listening to it again. The Quiptrack, however, I'll probably watch once a month or so.  :)

I'm planning on doing the back to back viewings as well when I have time later this week.  I'll probably watch the Rifftrax version first just to do the opposite of Greg.    Great sample clip by the way.

Good to see you survived, Greg.
PROGRESS REPORT #1 - "The Happening" unriffed

My first time with The Happening. You know, I was expecting some godawful work at Battlefield Earth levels, the way people were talking off to it. Oh, it's a bad movie, but not nearly the worst thing I've ever seen. If anything, I enjoyed the visuals work, which has always been Shyamlan's strong point. The plot, blah. The acting... well, I don't think the acting in itself was bad. I'd credit the sissy Wahlberg lines and disjointed nothings on the screenplay.

Let's see what two more viewings do to me.

Really? I thought this was even worse that crap like Battlefield Earth and Batman and Robin, because at least those have things happening on screen (note the irony here). This was an hour and a half of slow talking and closeups that were WAY too close up. This was boring bad, as apposed to goofy bad.

At least it's short? And, in contrast to Battlefield Earth, it has more than one color...

It also has transitions other than circle wipes.

Well, we've had a decent number of downloads, but not much feedback...

I laughed quite a bit while I was keeping an eye on my reauthor, I haven't watched it all the way through though.

You mean here or on your website?

If here: I write it now.

Quiptracks is not Rifftrax. They are different from Rifftrax in the sense the Spongebob is not Mickey. The goals are the same but the style is completely different. Quiptracks holds some sort of fantasy feeling to it and often think of the unexpected. They are funny in their own why and stray far from the usual making them unique. They even use a different synching method than Mike and the guys. Hopefully, Quiptracks will soon be widely known and very appreciated. As for the riff of "The Happening", Tristian and Tracy have filled the film will non-stop laughs, making sure every joke would at least give you a chuckle.

Both, I guess. On the site is more important though.

And thanks.
