    Hey, new member here!

    Anywho, anyone enjoy RiffTrax? Been following them after discovering MST3K when it came to Netflix in the late 2000's, and discovered MST3K in the 2000's via YouTube. I discovered Rifftrax after seeing YouTube clips of their riffing samples, then watched their works on Amazon Prime. Then, I bought some of their DVDs and Blu-Rays via their holiday sales.

    What are your favorite Rifftrax films?

    Mine are:

    -Yambo
    -Beast of The Yellow Night
    -Wonder Women
    -Bloody Pit of Horror
    -Super Mario Bros
    -The Million Eyes of Su Maru
    -House on Haunted Hill LIVE
    -Plan 9 From Outer Space LIVE

    Oh snap, Rifftrax is one of my favorite things, I have a purchased a ridiculous number of them. My faves are maybe Guy From Harlem, Miami Connection, and Never Surrender.

    Also, if you don't know, Frank and Trace have been doing live riffing shows over the internet. After the show they usually do an interview with a guest and shoot the shit for a while. It's not as funny as MST3k/Rifftrax, but I kinda like just seeing these guys in a low-key setting. One of the eps they re-do Manos and have an interview with the original child actor from the movie.

    Next episode is Devil Bat on Nov 8th.

    I also got The Return of Swamp Thing LIVE! (Wanted to go see it in theaters, but i was coming home from a vacation when it came out.) And Whatever Happened to Baby Jane (The 90's TV Movie remake) during the site's Cyber Monday Sale.

    I need to see that. Right now, they're offering free trials for their Friends streaming service.

    BTW-I also got Octoman on Blu-Ray, and got the MST3K Reunion on streaming after getting their $10 gift card and used a coupon.

    My personal favorite RiffTrax is actually one of their public domain shorts, Fun in Balloonland. The whole parade just has this haze of depression surrounding it and the jokes about the floats hit almost every time.

    Years ago I also bought tickets to see the live riffings of Anaconda and the 1998 Godzilla movie.
