The sequence of events, over more than a few months, goes like this:

1) My wife gets hooked on the Twilight series of "novels".
2) Since I am a good husband, I hang out at a midnight book premiere to get the second one or third one or whichever one has hot sparkly vampire love in it.
3) My wife finishes the series and gets hooked on other wretched "supernatural romance" kinds of books.
4) Since I am a good husband, I watch the kids for a night so my wife can see the Twilight movie by herself on opening night. Herself, because she knows in advance it would be... not good for me, and she doesn't want her experience "sullied" by asinine and not-asinine harsh commentary on all the wretchedness.
5) She comes back and reports that the movie was simply "OK".
6) Rifftrax adds Twilight to its series of offerings.
7) I get to see just how mind-bendingly, singularity-causingly bad Twilight: The Movie really is. The Rifftrax version? Easily one of the three or so best they've ever done, fo sho. And the best part? Although my wife still loves the novels, the scales have been lifted as far as the movie goes. Good God.

(And if you don't know what Rifftrax is, I have nothing to say to you. Shame. Shame.)

Rifftrax is a great group. I had thought about doing something similar before I found them.

I still miss MST3K... Rifftrax just isn't the same.

I'm not a fan of MST3K outside of the 90's, BUT...

I hate Twilight even more. It might be worth watching the limping offspring of my former champion besmirch my new nemesis.

The best part of this thread is the "Twilight is casting now" advertising bar down the right side of my screen as I read it...

Yeah, i'll get right on that...

I like RiffTrax, okay, except I hate the hassle of not just having everything together, and I miss puppets and host segments.

If you haven't yet, check this out: The Film Crew

And, here's a new group of guys who give classic MST3K a run for the money (or should I have said run for the funny.... HA HA HA)
ICWXP (Incognito Cinema Warriors XP)
They've got puppets and a premise and host segments and riff older movies, and I think they're pretty funny. Eps 2 and 3 are on RiffTrax iRiffs section.

Y'all ARE aware of Cinematic Titanic, yes?

"Blood of the Vampires", in particular, is painfully good.
