We’ve had one terrific year here at Rifftrax. Lots of ups and downs, but mostly ups, what with lots of great movies and the unexpected triumph of our Riff of Twilight. Our live appearances were all terrific fun: Comic-Con, Stone Brewery, Rifftrax Live in Nashville, the Shorts-stravaganza just a couple of weeks past. And helping [...]

Now that we’re in that groggy, mosquito-infested nightless fever-dream between Memorial Day and Independence Day, isn’t it time to watch a doughy middle-aged guy offer his tribute to Liberty, freedom, faith, hope, charity and other things?
Of course it is. Here’s RC Kouba with Lady Liberty.

Earth Day is upon us, a day which has considerably more meaning and practical application than Life Day. And what better way to celebrate the day, there in San Diego and here in the Minnesota Satellite Offices, than to release our riff of James Cameron’s Brobdingnagian Planet-Buster of a movie, Avatar. Say what you will [...]

Okay, so you’re snowed in. You have so much snow in your driveway you’re thinking of putting it in the trunk, maybe stopping at your ma’s for some meatballs and gravy then dumping the snow somewhere upstate where it won’t be missed. You’re grumbling, you’re growling, feeling sorry for yourself. Don’t lie, I see [...]

We’ve had one terrific year here at Rifftrax. Lots of ups and downs, but mostly ups, what with lots of juicy, riffable movies and the unexpected triumph of our riff of Twilight. Our live appearances were all great fun: Comic-Con, Stone Brewery, Rifftrax Live in Nashville, the Shorts-stravaganza just a couple of weeks past. And [...]

Say, it’s been a while, whaddya say we check in with our old pal, freak-folk icon Devendra Banhart? I say let’s do it!
…Okay. Well, that pretty much wraps up our visit with Devendra. We’ll check in again in a year or so.

One of the biggest decisions we make around here in the fall is what kind of kicky new look will carry us through the brisk weather until we adopt even kickier looks for winter? And because we are so far ahead of the curve in men’s style, we decided to look beyond the fall looks [...]

Damn, was that fun. Rifftrax Live was beamed nationwide Thursday night with only a few satellite glitches along the way. The show rocketed by for those of us onstage, and the live theater audience in Nashville was the kind you want to take home with you. And as reports around the country have come in, [...]

So Twitter is down, big time. Last word is that they’re defending themselves against a “denial-of-service attack” Not sure what that is, or if it involves orcs, but it sounds bad. And now Facebook is groaning under the strain of people needing to send each other brief messages and read those of others.
It’s mercurial, this [...]

Can’t wait for our nationwide RIFFTRAX LIVE show on August 20th? Whet your appetite with this fresh summer riff: Fast & Furious! It’s just like The Fast and the Furious but without all those annoying articles in the title. You can think of Vin Diesel as a leaner, slightly less successful version of Plan 9’s [...]

As Comic-Con looms, we’re packing our bags and heading out to San Diego with ENTIRELY NEW LOOKS!* We’ve already made Bill and Mike over, now to the real trouble spot- Mr. K.W. Murphy. Kevin’s owned a single pair of jeans for eleven years, and has watched his yellowing Munsingwear golf shirt go in and out [...]

It’s not easy being a Bill Corbett – riffer, writer, actor, father, amateur soft drink developer. Mixing a career and family can be tough, even confusing, evidence when Bill sent his young daughter to close a contract in Hollywood. (She was a pit bull at the negotiating table, by the way). This leaves Bill the [...]

Here we are, smack in the middle of summer, getting ready to be out in the public eye starting with Comic-Con, and we Riffers look like a pack of middle-aged shlubs dressed to watch bowling on TV. The noted exception is young writing wiz Conor, who wears even a Woot Shirt with a sense of [...]

Jonathan Coulton is what’s so damn funny. Paul and Storm are what’s so damn funny. Put them together, on a Rifftrax Presents Super-Cool Special Riff of the iconic geekwork TRON, and the funny risks breaching its containment field and releasing a wave of hyperfunny that could threaten countless galaxies… with laughter.
Here’s a sample of what [...]

Sure we had a tough weekend, but that’s not gonna slow us down. We have lots of fun stuff in the hopper – some great Guest Riffers, including Jonathan Coulton and Paul & Storm. We have some titles that are guaranteed to surprise you. More shorts, more old moldy movies, more bleeding edge new movies, [...]
