Some of you may have heard that Casablanca will be our next RiffTrax (it comes out on Tuesday.) What some of you might not know is that back in 8th grade, my friend Andrew wrote a song about the exotic destination that the movie is set in: Morocco. I would like to share with [...]

Recognize this guy? He’s Leon Unczur and yesterday he celebrated his first year anniversary serving as the Sheriff of Nottingham.
The modern day Sheriff’s role is a bit different than this guy:
Unlike old Bushel-Britches here, Sheriff Unczur’s roles focus less on extorting taxes from widow rabbits and dogs wearing full leg casts and more on tourism, [...]

There were lots of great entries for the Last Man on Earth challenge! Thanks to everyone who mocked Vincent Price’s pain/madness by changing his video to something absurd. I picked first, second and third place.
First place goes to Askbotboy for his Mighty Boosh mashup:
Second place to Ejiehi for the most insanity inducing clip of them all. [...]

After talking about doing this for WAY longer than it should have taken, we finally decided to change what Vincent Price was watching during this awesome scene from The Last Man on Earth:
But there’s got to be other things out there that would warrant that kind of a response from him. We’ve uploaded the raw [...]

Was reading an article about Justice David Souter stepping down, when I came across some valuable information:
He kept comfortably to routine, bringing a daily lunch of an apple and yogurt in a plastic grocery bag, eating alone in his chambers.
I leapt on this, and placed a phone call, hoping to land this dynamic sounding [...]

Sometimes two art forms come together in a synergy so beautiful, you wonder how your world existed before someone (in this case youtube user tteeddssoonn) put them together.
Twilight Sucks Forum user “estora” unfortunately has a different viewpoint: “I love Meat Loaf — it’s disgraceful to have his name associated with the failfest that is *&%$ing [...]

Wanting more after the Michelle/Stephanie Tanner video, we went a-searchin’. Sadly, the imagined treasure trove of sitcom catchphrase montages proved not to really exist. But it did turn up these two gems:
I did not know of the existence of these two catchphrases before today. But based on the above videos, you can see [...]

I would venture to guess that only a few elite figures warrant the “multiple wax figures of you in the same wax museum” status. Skinny/Fat Elvis, short/long hair Beatles, adorable tyke/ghoul Michael Jackson. I put forth that the Olsen Twins should be the same way! By same way, of course, I mean the adorable tyke/ghoul [...]

That National High Five Day, the fake holiday co-founded by yours truly SEVEN YEARS AGO, goes down this Thursday, the 16th.
This video, made on NH5D 2007 by some high school kids I’ve never met is one of the most encouraging signs I’ve ever gotten that all is good in the world. And now the gradual [...]

Tonight’s Lost poked self-aware fun at the conventions of time travel. Lost’s entry into the time travel-verse has been both baffling and fascinating (Note: My opinion – I have no idea how this season has been received on the internet, and would rather saw off my leg than venture into that hornet’s nest), and tonight’s [...]

I was quite pleased when Mike informed me today that Lady Gaga was not the one hit wonder we at RiffTrax had her pegged for. Turns out that our Bad Song of the Year winner had another hit before Poker Face, “Just Dance.” It has over 47 million youtube views, so I’m probably not telling [...]
