Recent RiffTrax Updates

A couple of releases slipped under my radar:

Get it here.

And get this here.

Plus: Don’t forget RiffTrax Live: Space Mutiny coming to a theater near you tomorrow, June 14.

  1. …Women can do Public Domain too, get over it!

    The Sherlock movie’s actually one of the better PD-vultured Rathbone/Bruce wartime-Holmes, just that this’s the only one of the series with a “temptress” in it, hence B&MJ.
    And we probably won’t get “Crunchy Basil Rath-bones” callbacks from Magic Sword.

    Please join Mike, Kevin, and Bill for what we believe is the 3,204th Coronet short they’ve riffed
    (As well as what we believe is the 3205th Mike or Kevin SciFi/RT riff that has involved the words “Immortal soul”…)

    …what in the actual F are you even talking about anymore?? Dear Lord man (?), get some help already.

    Also.. if these posts are *not* a result of deep-seated mental issues, and you actually believe your posts are somehow a reflection of your superior intelligence.. you’re wrong. You’re just insufferable.

    (We know you’re faithful enough to buy these sight-unseen, but it still wouldn’t hurt to actually go to the site, watch the clips and read some of the description copy, if Erhardt is going to go through the trouble to link them every time?…
    It would relieve some of the drudgery of all those “I don’t getz it!” responses every time.)

    Check out this link to a photo of Bill’s dogs, Rudy and Wendy. :-)

    Rudy is a chihuahua/dachshund/yellow lab mix and Wendy is a beagle/plott hound mix.

    Oh, we get it alright…

    Riffing public domain movies is stupid and evil, when Mike/Rifftrax does it. It was fine when Joel did it.

    Bridget and Mary Jo’s choices of movies must always be criticized because they’re associated with Mike/Rifftrax.

    Callbacks are “fan service” when Rifftrax does it, but if they don’t you’ll whine about that too.

    Riffing shorts or films from the same studio is stupid and evil when Mike/Rifftrax does it. It was fine when Joel did it.

    Etcetera ad nauseam.

    Yeah, where’s Mike’s apology?
    Seems like the Media has no problem whatsoever if Joel goes on the Tony Awards and drops F-bombs about RiffTrax, but the MINUTE a Mike supporter dares speak the truth about–

    (…Er, heh, sorry, got the Butthurt Whatabout-ism confused there, for a sec.) ;)

    Beginning Responsibility –

    I suspect that woman was my third grade teacher. I don’t really remember. Forty-five kids in the class, the immense passing of time and the fog of day after day of dull, grinding boredom have obscured the memory. I do remember the nuclear attack drills and standing against the walls in the unairconditioned hallways being a pleasant relief. If there is a hell it will be an endless third grade and the only subject will be long division.

    Not so. There’s also Gale Sondergaard in “The Spider Woman” and Patricia Morison in “Dressed to Kill”. While Evelyn Ankers in “The Pearl of Death” plays a villainous character, I wouldn’t characterize her as a femme fatale.

    By the way, “The Pearl of Death” features Rondo Hatton in his first “Creeper” role. This one, however, isn’t exploitative, in that he’s a shadowy, mysterious figure for most of the movie, with his face only visible briefly near the end.

    On the topic of the actual product, I very much enjoyed The Woman in Green. The print was excellent, the colorization was nicely done (and not garish), and the riffing was solid. It’s definitely one I’ll watch over and over.

    Haven’t watched the short yet, but it looks sufficiently creepy and Coronet-y to be very enjoyable.

    Speaking of Holmes, I remember on “In Search Of” there was a segment on someone posing as Professor Moriarty sending poison pen letters to the famous house/museum for what was said to be years and I guess they never did track the mystery writer down.

    The people who live in Mike’s old apartment must be fuming at him by now over all the Eric J. letters.

    Oh it’s not a matter of ‘not getting it’, you condescending dickweed. We alllll get it. You don’t like Mike, or anything associated with Mike. Waaahh, etc.

    You’ve stated it – we get it – now either move on, or kindly piss off.

    I think there is something deeper here. I see…I see Eric, parading in front of a mirror in a lace robe, in a room surrounded by pictures of Mr. Nelson. While Goodbye Horses by Q Lazzarus is playing in the background.

    Not to sound creepy, or any offense to Mary Jo’s shorter haircut, (I actually think it looks great) but Bridgette always rocks with the big hair. Even with a Sherlock “deerstalker” style cap on.

    EDIT: Did I just hijack a post about cute dogs for B&MJ’s hair?

    Sorry if the cosplay comment in it’s original form was in bad taste, it was funny when the ambien told me to write it. ;)

    Anyways, now that B&MJ seem to be a permanent fixture to the team who here thinks Trace and Frank should just hop on board instead of spreading the talent all over. I think there was at one time 4 different riffing troupes. I’m likely wrong but anyways. I don’t mean they have to share the stage at once, they could do shows with them live as well just do their own riff performance. They could also release PD stuff or even some audio only material on the web for some extra scratch. Strength in numbers is what I say.

    What do you think is the best television or film version of “Hounds of the Baskervilles”? It’s my favorite of them all. And don’t tell me to wait for A Robert Downy Jr. version where he karate punches the dog to the throat in a slow motion narrative.

    The Rathbone/Bruce version is OK, and I like the Cushing/Lee Hammer version, as well. The Jeremy Brett version was well-done, and I liked the Ian Richardson version. But stay away from the Peter Cook/Dudley Moore version; it’s awful.

    As a big Bridget & Mary Jo fan, I picked up “The Woman in Green” as soon as I sold some of my husband’s tools on eBay to have some money in my PayPal account. No, wait, I mean I sold some of my old craft supplies! Uh, yeah, that’s it. Yep.

    Thought it was very good but not great, partly because the movie itself wasn’t horrible in the same vein as, say, “Cat-Women of the Moon.” Nevertheless, as a Sherlockian it was a fun outing. I loved the Columbo jokes and the general ribbing of Watson’s cluelessness (literally, he never picks up on any clues, but that’s what makes Watson Watson).

    Watched this one tonight. Very funny work from Bridget & Mary Jo. The movie itself isn’t as good as others in the series. Henry Daniell is good as Moriarty, but Watson seems even more bumbling than usual. I was surprised that, given that Hillary Brooke is in this one, that there were no Abbott & Costello jokes, but the rapid-fire jokes re: the drug near the end were hilarious.
