I searched around and found no thread like this on here so I figured I'd start one. This thread will be dedicated to talking about all things riff. You can talk about your favorite mst3k episodes, your favorite RT/CT movie riff, anything at all.


I grew up watching mst3k on comedy central then sci-fi channel, and recently started picking up the old episodes again and watching them, I've also caught quite a few rifftrax, and a few CT movies too. I just finished up watching RT cover The Room for about the 6th time, I can't get enough of that craptastic movie, and they just make it so much better.


So if your a fan, and just wanna talk about anything, here is the place, and remember to have fun or Coily the spring sprite will send you to hell! :bouncy:

I've been a MSTie since I was a kid too. I still have some old, circulated VHS tapes lying around, including a Turkey Day marathon. I'm a bigger fan of Joel than I am Mike, so Rifftrax is kind of hit and miss for me.

Sadly, CT is calling it quits so I don't think we'll see their last live show on DVD. Now that I've said it though, releasing their very last show (with a big goodbye to everyone at the end) would be a terrific idea.

It does suck that CT is gonna stop touring, though they haven't said complete quits on CT as a whole. They can possibly come out with more dvds in the future which wouldn't be nearly as time consuming as touring, they could also still have a live show here and there every so often if they wanted to after 2013. I watched Doomsday Machine 2 days ago, was pretty funny, loved the megaphone bit with Joel constantly blaring the countdown while Trace is trying to talk lol.

I got into mst3k during the Joel era, but honestly his sense of humor and delivery never did it for me. Plus all of my favorite episodes are during the Mike era.

Yeah you can definitely see a difference in the Joel/Mike humour, but that's why I love them both, it's humour that caters to my feelings when I'm choosing an episode to watch lol.

I'm glad "Keep Circulating The Tapes" has lived on through Netflix and Youtube.

I love how it's still being kept alive at all, it's such an awesome show. I wish that netflix however had a bigger library of episodes, they released a few then it seems as though they just stopped.

I have nothing to add right now, but I'm tagging this so I can remember to watch the Avengers rifftrax.

I haven't seen The Avengers riff, I need to see that one as well. I think I'm going to watch breaker breaker tonight, with Chuck Norris as a trucker, should be great.


*edit* Apparently I'm watching kingdom of spiders tonight with the legendary William Shatner, tomorrow I will be viewing breaker breaker lol.

Yeah I have to say that Kingdom of the Spiders was great, I really liked it. Had the ham of normal William Shatner movies but there was so much unintended humour in the plot and story that you just want to shake your head at whoever decided to fund it, but thanks to it's funding I got some good laughs. Tonight it's Breaker Breaker, hopefully Ol Norris doesn't disappoint with his ruggedly crappy acting.

I love all things MST3K. I started watching it in college back in 1993. I'll never forgive myself for listening to my roommate when they were showing an ep live at school back then. He said "We have time" and of course we showed up too late to get seats. I have seen Cinematic Titanic live a couple of times. Favorite episode is a tough call. Godzilla vs. Megalon maybe.

Been busy the last few days but finally caught breaker breaker, dear lord this movie was rediculous but the riffing was great. The beginning was a slow build up but it doesn't disappoint.

Ok folks, I watched McBain, and yup this one was a good one to.
It featured all three familiar riffers, Mike/Bill/Kevin, and I must say if you want to watch it that the movie is rated R and the riffing also takes a few R rated twists with the guys dropping the F bomb a couple of times.

The movie is not about a cop who doesn't play by the rules like in the Simpsons, however it is referenced quite a few times by the guys.
This movie Stars Christopher Walken as a former POW turned construction worker who jumps at the call of Maria Conchita Alonso (The main woman from the Arnold movie Running man, who believes that bras are an abomination to god), when her brother is killed by Colombians.

Christopher gathers a team of old friends, and no they aren't the A team, they aren't even the Eh team, but they love it when a plan slowly congeals together, hell one of the characters wears a Wrestle-Mania hat for 30 minutes of the movie.
Along for the ride is Michael Ironside, who when asked if he can come along the response is "Well we do need a really shitty pony tail".
As you watch this movie you will thrill as an arc welder and a trauma surgeon prepare to take down a drug cartel, you will be amazed as someone is shot with the bungee cord attached to their back because to hell with physics.

Cheer for ear necklace guy and not even realize why, because what the hell, we're in a Christopher Walken action movie!
So I really do recommend this riff, it is hilarious with it's casual breezy warfare, so go on ahead and picket your way through the gunfire to see this wonderful film! :applause:

Bumping this to say that coming this October on the 24th at 8pm est and tape delayed to 8pm pt, at participating theaters, Rifftrax Live: Night of the living dead.  This should be a great one, the live starship troopers was a blast, and this one should too.

Bumping this because the Night of the Living Dead event is this Thursday. I'm trying to recruit friends to come with me.

They may have been there for a while but I'm seeing quite a few MST3K eps on Netflix.
