While we were working on our upcoming RiffTrax for The Matrix: Revolutions, one scene in particular stood out amongst the noise and chaos of the 2-hour-but-seems-like-4 final chapter in the Matrix Trilogy. The scene comes about an hour in, when the subtly named “Bane” sneaks about Neo and Trinity’s ship and takes Trinity hostage. Bane, [...]

Can’t wait for our nationwide RIFFTRAX LIVE show on August 20th? Whet your appetite with this fresh summer riff: Fast & Furious!

We’ll be releasing our RiffTrax of Tommy Wiseau’s The Room on Thursday, but it has been a favorite around the office for the past two months or so. (For an introduction to The Room see our beginner’s guide here.) We’ve watched it so many times that we started to have questions about it that couldn’t [...]

The Room has consumed our lives here at RiffTrax since we discovered it two and a half months ago. We’ve rewatched the movie, poured over the discs bonus features, started talking like Johnny around the office and even spoken on the phone with two people involved in the movie. But we acknowledge that it’s probably [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Though my family and friends back home may be partaking in the inauguration festivities, they will miss out on the true way the event should be watched: on Hulu with a “Sponsored by Paul Blart: Mall Cop” tag onscreen at all times.

While checking out this recap of a London listening party for Animal Collective’s latest, “Merriweather Post Pavilion”, I was struck that some of the pictures looked a touch familiar. So I prepared this game, entitled “Animal Collective Listening Party or Scene from Trainspotting?” All the pics have various forms of ecstasy occurring on a filthy [...]

Congratulations and thank you to all who sent in their Amounts of Something in response to the title of the new Bond Film. Your responses gave me a demijohn of elation.
For me, the one that put it over the top was Barleycorn of Tedium. Says it all. And I learned that Barleycorn was at one [...]

Lemon Drink fever continues at RiffTrax! I made some new lolcat images to commemorate our Happening Riff. Again, these won’t make any sense unless you have watched The Happening, a rare ’so bad it’s good’ kind of trainwreck that was an absolute pleasure to Riff. So watch it now!

Occasionally my dog Boomer feels compelled to review a movie, generally when that movie includes a dog or dogs, and this fall’s releases promise to keep him busy.
BEVERLY HILLS CHIHUAHUA: No Paws (out of four)

One of the most exciting aspects of Rogenomics is its ability to adapt to new Hollywood trends yet remain the most accurate predictor of their outcome. Last time we observed some basic principles; now let’s observe one of the recent additions to the pantheon of Leading Rogenomic Indicators (LRI’s), Jonah Hill. Jonah has dependably [...]
