Edit: Man Sharknado 2 sucks. I know that's "the point" but the whole thing is so cynical and joyless, even the riff couldn't save it. And between Andy Dick, Matt Lauer and Jared Fogle it's jam packed with sex creeps.

I remember in an interview Kevin said something along the lines of "when you set out to make a bad movie all you have succeeded at is failure." And Sharknado 2 is doubly unfortunate because they tried to make it a meme.

I revisited The Guy From Harlem today. (He's still from Harlem.) I think my favorite part is just how indignant Kevin gets over how The Guy orders his New York Strip and the type of Scotch he gets.

They have some mp3 commentaries as well, but I've never tried those. I think the overlap is they both pick on lovely B movies. But RLM is more of the dissecting of bad film and trying to be a film critic about it. More than half of their videos where they watch movies is spent at a table talking about how good/bad it was. You don't spend much time at all watching the films they talk about, it's all clips where relevant.

I've listened to the RLM Gremlins commentary. It was... fine? They don't have any special insight that you yourself wouldn't if you liked the movie and read up on it a little.

One thing I do know is RLM fans hate it if you ask if they liked RiffTrax or MST3K, even though it's logical to assume the RLM guys would be at least familiar with it coming from the same general area.

There's an April Fool's joke going on at the Twitch channel. They're playing stuff un-riffed.

Even if you remove the cat, the story about the two girls and two other dudes that get on a boat sailing into the Caribbean with a money launderer they just met makes zero sense.

They sure are cool with that one dude's attempted sexual assault, too.

Nah, it is completely wacky even without riffing. The killer is a cat inside another cat and as previously mentioned the set up for why everyone is on the boat out in the middle of nowhere makes absolutely no sense.

Agreed. It's also super 80's in style which helps. Or hurts.

The... outside cat? Or whatever you want to call it is very blase about the whole deal. It's just an ambulatory hairball to it.

Rented and watched the Rifftrax version of "Attack of the Super Monsters" earlier in the evening and thoroughly enjoyed it, because it combined two things from Japan that were very near and dear to my heart as a kid during the early 1980s: guys in giant monster suits destroying scale model cities, and shoddy assembly-line style cartoons with ridiculous dubbing.

I'm glad they finally got around to something anime-adjacent. People were asking for that sort of thing all the way back on the Sci-Fi channel chats (and I remember Bill answering "I'd have to watch it, so no").

Watched this a few days ago after seeing the BotW episode a few years ago and it's as amazing as they made it look. You could think it's a movie made by some highschoolers but nope it's a very serious adult dude making a statement and nature and having meetings with his costume designer. Some of the choices are really mindblowing, like he could've easily cut that shot after seeing how terrible it is but nope everything stays in.

But, yes, I think being confused by the references is an integral part of MST3K/RiffTrax experience

And the guys and girls would absolutely write jokes for themselves, which is where you get all the references to Circle Pines from (where Mary Jo grew up, I believe).

Yeah, I do think Sean and Conor (and the others) are the reasons we got stuff like GamerGate references like in The Wizard. I'd say video games references in general but do not underestimate Mike Nelson's love for Super Mario Brothers 3.

TVs Ian posted:

Mike challenged people to deathmatches in the original Doom (on a map he made, from what I understand) at one of the MST3K conventions. And they tossed around references to Super Mario Bros, Doom, Prince of Persia, and probably more that I'm forgetting.

So maybe not huge gamers, but I'm sure there's at least some frame of reference there.

Mike and Jim would also have long bouts of playing the old 688 Attack Submarine because one of the first things they did when they upgraded their computers at Best Brains was buy games for it.

I'd forgotten they did Jaws, which is certainly the movie out of those I revisit the most. It also reminds one of Kevin saying that what they do are really roasts instead of ribs in response to the "How could you do GOOD movies!?"

1. I have a whole new level of respect for Killer Klowns From Outer Space, a movie I already loved, but JF really shows that writing an intentionally bad/silly horror film is actually difficult and requires some level of talent.

Kevin mentioned once that when you make a bad movie on purpose, the only thing you've succeeded at is failure (talking about Sharknado 2, I believe).

The rest of the MST3k crew seemed pretty left, from what I remember. I don't follow anyone other than the main Rifftrax account and Bill/Kevin, but I remember Frank being pretty extreme online (and I'm pretty sure he was left), to the point that I had to unfollow him. Joel is an old hippy I believe, so maybe Cinematic Titanic needs to start back up again or something if there's a falling out at Rifftrax if Mike won't budge.

Trace is also pretty left but isn't as vocal as Frank (few are as vocal as Frank). The other guy on Mike's 372 Pages We'll Never Get Back is Conor Lastowka, one of the RiffTrax writers who also seems to swing to the left.

The third guy on Audio Mullet is apparently the Axe Cop dude. Which i never got into but now at least I don't have to put in the effort.

Sydney Bottocks posted:

I'm pretty sure Mike owns Rifftrax, so it wouldn't be a matter of him leaving but rather whether the others were willing to stay. It would suck to have a scenario where he replaces Bill and Kevin with some chud-rear end riffers making lovely cracks about SJWs and "safe spaces" and whatnot, but that'd likely be a worst-case scenario kinda thing where they just can't reconcile their differences.

If the others are serious about sticking to their principles, Mike would have to replace like everybody. Bill, Kevin, the writers like Conor, Sean and Jason, all of them don't seem like they'd be down with Doug.

Scanning through a couple of the podcasts, this situation strikes me as Mike watching an old friend turn into a bigger and bigger rear end in a top hat over time but not really wanting to believe it. I hope he keeps making the right decisions.

I wonder how much of Doug being Doug is easy to miss if you're not online very much like Mike is. Or isn't. That he tones it down in front of people who would react badly to the full monty in person (or in online teleconferencing, at least) would not shock me.

Please, science, fix Mike's headaches so he can rest and maybe pick better people to do podcasts with. Bill's podcast was really good, as I recall.

I don't know how Mike lives with a constant migraine at some level. Every time the SF Sketchfest comes on the Twitch channel somebody invariably says they heard Mike has beef with them or whatever and the answer is no, he doesn't go out because flying is like death.

Also, I've been talking to one of my contacts at RiffTrax and Troll 2 has been removed.

Nice. I thought about tweeting something at them but I have an entry in 'Who's Nobody' and figured there were probably more influential people who would tell them.

Happily this will also cut down on the people who come into the Twitch chat and like making fun of Troll 2 and also hate RiffTrax for whatever reason.
