Chad Vader joins Rifftrax for ESB mocking!

The latest Rifftrax is out, and it’s spoofing our beloved Empire Strikes Back. Joining Mystery Science Theater 3000 alums Mike Nelson, Kevin Murphy, and Bill Corbett is the internet’s own Chad Vader, for extra mocking fun. The sample had me laughing out loud, so prepare for awesome.

(Psst… They also did Twilight.)

Rifftrax meets the SW Holiday Special

For those of you who longed for the time when the cast of MST3K could skewer the Holiday Special, your wait is now over. If you haven’t got a copy of it, you could always “Get [it] frOm yOur friend Greg, in LakE VIDEO, Illinois”.

Also new on their list, “Raiders of the Lost Ark“, “Jurassic Park” (feat. Weird Al Yankovic), and for a limited time, buy all 3 SW prequel Riffs for only $8.99. It’s a bargain even Watto would love.

Video Monday

Don’t miss this – R2-S2, the steam-powered Artoo! Impressive. (Thanks, Bonnie!)

Rifftrax has video samples on Youtube – TPM, AOTC, The Matrix, Daredevil, The Fifth Element, X-Men, LOTR (if you only watch one, watch LOTR) and more. They’re also up on the Rifftrax site.

Someone has put a lot of SDCC masquerade sketches from 2005 and 2006 up on Youtube – including The Modal Nodes, Runaway Bounty, General Grievous and some very familiar pirates

I had no idea Epcot could do that!

The Dwarf looks like Harry Knowles!

64 reasons to watch Dungeons and Dragons. Because it makes TPM and AOTC look like The Godfather? I don’t know… I’m big on embracing the cheese, but I watched this movie on cable and it was awful. Maybe they ought to Rifftrax it.

That said, the reasons are pretty funny.

Speaking of Rifftrax, their mocking of The Phantom Menace is now available. Has it offended any uptight prequel fans yet? I want to know!
