“Pop Candy,” a blog about all things pop culture, and hosted by Whitney Matheson on USA Today’s website, has given RiffTrax another brief (but great) mention, even plugging Neil Patrick Harris.
A riff of pure imagination
I’ve written about RiffTrax before — on the website, you can download funny movie commentaries from Mike Nelson, formerly of Mystery Science Theater 3000.
Wilder_2The site recently posted a commentary track for Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory that’s worth checking out because a) it’s funny; and b) it features special guest commentator and How I Met Your Mother star Neil Patrick Harris. Come on, who can resist NPH talking about Oompa Loompas? The track costs $2.99, and you can hear a free sample on the site.
(On a related note, RiffTrax also offers commentary for the pilot episode of Lost. Unfortunately, Harris decided to opt out of that one.)
