We say almost only because the movie they did, which they kept secret until the night of the show, was the Sylvester Stallone arm-wrestling epic and all the comedic riffing in the world can't stop that movie from being at least a tad painful to sit through. Die hard RiffTrax fans might have also been a little disappointed by the fact that it's a movie that has already been given a RiffTrax, albeit one with only Mike Nelson commenting. (January's Daredevil presentation wasn't released as a RiffTrax until after the show.) We haven't listened to the original track so we aren't sure how much was changed with the addition of Bill Corbett and Kevin Murphy, but we'd imagine there had to be at least a few new jokes. And even if there weren't, a well-told joke can be listened to more than once--anyone who owns at least one "MST3K" DVD can tell you that. (We know we'll never get tired of hearing Robert Loggia talk about his frog terrarium in Over the Top.)
After the show, the guys sat down for a short Q&A with someone from Sketchfest, and while the questions he asked sounded awfully familiar, it was a nice addition to the show. The "riffers" even stuck around for a little while after that and braved the nerdy throngs to sign a few autographs and pose for some photos. They're such nice, mid-western boys!
If anyone went to Monday's show at Cobb's we'd love to hear about it. Let us know in the comments!Over the Top,
