I somehow went the last twenty-odd years without having seen MST3K/Rifftrax but thanks to poe I'm now an addict. Thank god there are hundreds of hours of it to devour.

It's OK, it used to be great.
Its annoying when folks go out of their way to hate Twilight. Yes the books and films are lame, but whatever. Groaning when you see a Twilight commercial on TV won't make you more of a man.
When did they lose the ability to deliver a joke?
Some of the riffs are good, but they sound like the guy at the party who's trying REALLY hard and loud to be funny.
I don't hate these, but it's definitely hard not to feel like they lost something since the MST3K days. Their live shows, on the other hand, are pretty uproarious, especially when they do the shorts.
As someone who's been messing around with voiceovers for existing footage, speaking LOUDLY and CLEARLY is almost a must, since the background noise (the movie) is of variable volume, and re-recording is a PITA.
I don't hear much difference between this and their MST3K days when you listen to the 'Trax as a whole, instead of clips like this. This one has none of the banter-ish stuff that sounds more like conversation.

I admit that Rifftrax doesn't have the same magic MST3k did, but all the same, it is impossible for me to endure a 'Twilight' movie without a Rifftrax commentary playing over it.
I like to download torrents of the 'Twilight' movies with the commentaries embedded in them and then compensate Rifftrax with Paypal donations. That way I get the commentary and the movie without having to have the DVD or do the mixing, Rifftrax still gets paid, and I can say "fuck you, you rich crazy Mormon fucknut."
You say that as if there's some reason you have to ever watch a Twilight movie.
I think it's mandatory if you're being interrogated by the NSA, no matter what the Geneva Convention says.

Haven't tried a Rifftrax since Star Trek. Actually kind of want to check this out now. Love those giant CGI dogs.

Saw this Rifftrax a while ago with a few friends. Even the commentary can't make this movie watchable; it's just that tedious.
