What the gently caress is this movie? And I was going to ask how the gently caress they got Eric Roberts but I found the answer:


He probably took a smoke break from the afternoon shift at the Sizzler in Van Nuys and was back in time for the dinner rush.

EDIT: Eric Roberts' Twitter feed is quite a thing to experience.

I can't mock Roberts for doing these films once I found out in an interview that he does them so he can turn the money over to charities.

The director of Merlin also directed Deadly Instincts, which is a Bridget and Mary Jo riff. It was also known as Breeders, which I remember from my time at Blockbuster, because the slipsleeve was embossed with the monster on it

Just watched "Fun in Balloonland". I was not expecting 45 minutes of parade footage. Loved the generic balloon floats. They were so generic that they had to have people carrying signs in front of them explaining what the balloon was supposed to be.

Also watched Bridgit and Mary Jo's riff of "Angel's Revenge". Man, MST3K cut a lot out of that, including a montage scene!

Finished watching Yor and I have to say, the guy playing Overlord made for a shockingly good Dr. Doom. All he was missing was the face plate.

What about the use of action figures during the rescue scene at the end?

Yeah, I have no problem with [Elliot] and he works well with Ian Potter.

Just discovered they've both written new Doctor Who adventures for the audio company Big Finish. I like their works for them.

Watched "Star Games" for the first time. Holy poo poo Bill's line about the kid being chased by a bear in the woods. "This is actually the fifth Brian they cast. The other four were a bit ... slower. RIP."

Dumb Watson is like the easiest trap a writer can fall into and it's played for the cheapest of laughs in all those Basil Rathbone films.

My favourite treatment is still the Jeremy Brett series (which you can find on youtube): Watson is the charismatic 'people person' to Serlock's cold a-social Intellect.

Michael Williams (and later Andrew Sachs) was a great Watson to Clive Merrison's Holmes in the BBC radio series.
Richard Earl is another great Watson, in Big Finish's audio series starring Nicholas Briggs as Holmes.

What do you all think of solo riffs? I was interested in the Predator riff until I learned it's just Mike doing it himself.

I dunno, I love hearing their banter back and forth and laugh at each others' jokes

IIRC, Bozo the Clown was actually created by someone in either L.A. or NYC, who subsequently licensed the character out to TV stations in other major media markets, so that most every region had their own version of Bozo (not sure about any of the supporting characters though). I remember having my mind blown some years back when I discovered he wasn't just a local Chicago TV personality.

Then a guy who ended up buying the Bozo license, in the 1960s, also managed to talk Stan Laurel into selling him the Laurel and Hardy license.

If anybody gave my opinion the slightest bit of respect, I'd urge them to buy their riff of 'The Maturing Woman.' It opens with Bridget telling Mary Jo "Oh, this'll be good for you!" and just...
:

"The Woman in Green" opening is great. It starts with the classic mirror ball Universal logo of the 30s:

Bridget: This is my favorite logo ever!
Mary Jo: More than that one Columbia movie where the logo that came alive and started dancing?
Bridget: Oh god, I told you about that?

The Endgame riff is very good, even if the Hawkeye jokes are beyond stale by this point.

Thanos: "You could not live with your own failure."

Bill: "Golden Corral's new slogan!"


Also, best callback: "Hey, hey, hey! Pym's on the way!

I love the running Golden Corral jokes

Are the Rifftrax selections on Tubi and Amazon Prime the same? I would guess so but I realized today at work I've never checked. I always end up looking on Tubi because that's where I go when I'm in the mood for bad movies. (I'm also surprised how quickly Lycan Colony went up there.)

There's an overlap, but I'd say Tubi always has a better selection

This morning on the Rifftrax Twitch channel they aired Star Games. Holy gently caress, this may be the most insane movie I have ever seen! The special effects are atrociously bad, the space prince's computer AI is a disembodied clown head and the whole movie has this bizarre outsider art feel to it.

E: lol the king is Tony Curtis. Well that explains why he sounded like a two-bit New Jersey gangster wannabe.


Star Games was directed by Greydon Clark, who gave us Angels' Revenge and Final Justice. The School teacher "Angel" was also in Star Games (I think she's also married to Clark)

Watching Yor: Hunter from the Future and got a case of the giggles when Yor swung across a gap and turned into a tiny doll on a string.

A friend and I rented that movie twenty years ago, and when we got to that part, we rewound it like two dozen times.
