    Heartbreak Ridge.

    I always say really boring things in that low grumbly voice, and now I'm convinced there was some sort of fabric shortage in the 80's and thats why every one was in short-shorts and topless.

    What are your picks?

    Where to begin?

    I'd say Batman and Robin, The Blair Witch Project, Sphere, The Time Machine (2002 with Guy Pearce), Star Trek: The Motion Picture...I could think of many more, but those are my "most deserving candidates."

    Jumper. It's new, but that doesn't make it any less riff-worthy.

    I liked AVP:R...but it could definitely be made fun of! Hm...where to begin...I'd love to see what they'd say about most movies, but I'd probably suggest Vampires and/or The Atomic Brain (1960 something....). I've only seen like two episodes, but I love MST3K so much!

    The educational short I had to watch about team work by the coach of the Lakers. He made an acrostic poem of "team work"... the M stands for Mesh.

    I'm pretty sure I saw Batman and Robin on the RiffTrax website - so yeah I think they did that one - hilarious I'm sure - lots to make fun of on that one.

    Btw - Time Machine - great pick, Jeremy Irons, King of the Morlocks can't not get made fun of.

    Logan's Run - we watched it two weeks ago in my Argument & Debate class and it turned into an impromptu MST3K viewing, so I'd have loved to see the Bots take this one on.

    Ticks - this bad cheezy B-horror movie from the early - 90s?. Involving these mutated ticks, the size of cats, that go around killing people. The ugly brother of Ron Howard is in it.

    Run Lola Run (Lola Rentt) - they could have done a number on that one.

    Devour - Now I think that is a fairly good movie, but alot of people think it is bad enough to be a MST3K spoof.

    Friday the 13th: Jason Takes Manhattan - that movie sucks beyond the telling of it. The only way to make it worth watching is to MST3K it.

    Jason X - Same.

    The Odessey. We had to watch it in History class and ended up begging the teacher to turn it off. Also, Sling Blade. We watched it in Drama class twice, as if once wasn't bad enough.

    Slaughterhouse Rock ( 1988 ).



    I am not even confident BB could make it re-watchable...

    actually i liked "Ticks' when i watched it. it's from (1993) & it's with "Clint howard" yes he's a goofy looking dude but he's a great actor i think.



    anyways. but 'Ticks' i think is just one of those films that when you watch it, you just don't take it serious like i didn't when i watched it. so that's why i think i liked it. i've tried to watch a little bit of "Riftraxs but it just isn't the same as with the bots. i dunno why but i just can't seem to get into them.

    I personally think there have been some great RiffTrax stuff released.


    I mostly concentrate on their "classic" movie releases...not stuff like Captain America.



    Try our Laser Mission...it was AWESOMELY funny!

    actually 'Ticks' i kinda of liked. it wasn't really anything NEW, i mean hell "The x-files did an episode close to it in season 1 i think? but that would be fun to see it riffed. 'The velvet vampire' i'd LOVE To see the bots do the worst on it. it's an old one from (1971) and it's TERRIBLE!



    all they would have to do is take out the nudity in it. and hmmm 'The Time Machine' that is a bad film. i do wonder though what the original cut of that was like? if anyone here remembers and i'm guessing no, before that was offically released way back in (2002) the film was done, but than re-shoots had to be i believe done for it. or something like that. i wonder if the original cut was maybe better?
