Got this disc for Christmas and finally got around to watching it lats night. Only got through half of it, but so far I'm more impressed that I thought I'd be. The riffing on the credits was hilarious, with Trace's Glengarry Glen Ross riff probably my favorite one so far. After that things cooled off, but there were still quite a few big laughs. There were only 3 or 4 occasions where I really missed hearing a favorite riff from the MST3K version.
So far it's probably my favorite CT yet, but some of that probably has to do with the movie selection.

Once again, I'm months late. I admit I was a little befuddled over the idea of reriffing an old favorite, but as someone else posted earlier in the thread, I trust Joel.
And it worked. This is a completely different take, aided by riffing the whole movie, unencumbered by network time constraints. I'll admit I was hearing a lot of the old riffs in my head, but after a couple of viewings, it ceased to be a problem. The new jokes were excellent. I loved the line after "I'm not joking! Ask Droppo!": "So you know it won't be funny." And then the riffers laughed. That was the best improvement. They're starting to laugh at each other's lines. That makes it sound a lot more natural. This turned out to be a very interesting, and ultimately successful experiment.

This wasn't my favorite CT episode, partly due to the fact that I was quietly reciting the lines to the MST version often. The riffing isn't bad, but not good enough to convert someone who's skeptical on everything Cinematic Titanic. Hopefully this will be the only time they double-dip from the well.
