So it's just Mike riffing along, then? While I'm glad that genre is being continued in some form, I can't help wonder if some the innate chemistry would have to be lost. I remember the KTMA episode where Joel is alone in the theater. It wasn't a feel of "Friends laughing together over some bad movie" but rather "Some poor smuck is talking to himself during a movie". Sure some of the riffing was still funny, but and important dynamic had changed.
I'd still be willing to give this a shot. But... I don't have an ipod. The site says that other MP3 players will work. Is it possible to DL this to a PC, then have the commentary come over the speakers while the movie plays?
I think...IT'S GREAT!! Just finished watching it with my teenage son...we laughed our shirts off! The closing credit riffs are hilarious! ...and yes, we watched it on TV, and played the Rifftrax on the computer, worked perfectly, and never became 'out of sync'. Can't wait for the next one...
It is great isn't it - so much more in the riff style than his commentaries.
I was at a movie board I visit from time to time, and they were discussing the new DVD release for "Road House", I posted a link to the rifftrax. I hope some of them get into it - I'd love for this to be a great finacial success.
I watched it Monday night. I could only find a VHS copy at the local Blockbuster Video rental place. Hey, it worked fine! I sync-ed it up and it never got out of sync the whole way through! I got the feeling Mike has been itching to do this for some time and finally got the chance. It was LOL funny! I did have a small problem due to the fact I had the TV playing and I was using my headset on the MP3 player. My wife came out of her work room because she was hearing me laugh during the fight scenes and some of the more violent stuff in the movie and wanted to see what was so funny. I explained and she just rolled her eyes.
Again, I wonder if Mike can't persuade Kevin, Bill or Mary Jo to get in on the fun. I'd gladly pay $10 a download for that! All I got to say is I hope there will be more!
