Dirty Work

| September 21, 2015

I am a huge fan of Norm MacDonald. His deadpan delivery and explanations of punchlines are hilarious. Unfortunately, Norm’s humor doesn’t appeal to the masses. That’s probably why MacDonald is more widely recognized as Colonel Sanders in the new Kentucky Fried Chicken commercials, which is truly sad. Norm’s work as the host of Weekend Update […]

The 1950’s were a decade of nationwide panic for Americans. Fear of nuclear fallout after a possible attack from the Russians ran rampant through metropolitan cities as well as small rural towns. The Cold War between the United States and the U.S.S.R. was in full effect. The only positive effect of the possibility of nuclear […]

The 1980’s and 1990’s were a glorious time to be a fan of action movies and their larger than life stars. The “action hero” became a subgenre in Hollywood during this period. Names such as Schwarzenegger, Stallone, Van Damme, Seagal, and Norris peppered the movie landscape with high octane, one-liner filled, martial arts, blow up […]

In the modern age of movies, showmanship has become a lost art form. Movie premieres are rather tame, with the principals involved in the project walking a red carpet and posing for pictures. In the 1950’s and 1960’s, premieres (as well as the movies themselves) were grand spectacles, occasionally with gimmicks used to bring in […]

RiffTrax Live: Sharknado 2 – The Second One

| July 13, 2015

Have you ever had a plate of food placed in front of you, which looked intriguing but lacked a little flavor? Movies have been known to do the very same thing. Take for example the SYFY made-for-TV Sharknado series. On the surface, these films look like they could be a complete nightmare. But when you […]

Pursuing a career in Hollywood is like a yo-yo. There are lots of ups and downs. Sometimes the actor gets strung along. And, there are times when you are stuck on the bottom with no hope of springing back up. Morgan Freeman best personifies this analogy. Freeman toiled in relative Hollywood obscurity for 21 years […]

Television can be a perplexing medium. Shows can range from high end quality (The Sopranos, Seinfeld, Boardwalk Empire) to bottom of the barrel drek (Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Jersey Shore). Some shows cater to specific age groups. Occasionally a show appears on the television landscape that brings viewers of multiple generations together. One such […]

RiffTrax Live: The Room

| May 8, 2015

Bad movies are a necessary evil in the world. Bad movies cause us to have a deeper appreciation of good movies. Some movies try to be quality, but fail miserably and often times hilariously. For example, the movie Birdemic. The director set out to make a serious horror film in the vein of Alfred Hitchcock’s […]
