"RiffTrax, please riff '_________________'"

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

Opening to horrific reviews, the latest overly-hyped comic book movie apparently contains no humor, incomprehensible action, a hammy Jessie Eisenberg as Lex Luther, and just an overall suck. It pissed off the entire internet as people waiting to see another humorless 2 1/2 hour saga through dark terrain that feels more laborious than reading Madame Bovary are disappointed that this humorless 2 1/2 hour saga through dark terrain finally made people finally go, "Aren't comic book movies supposed to be FUN?"

    I hope they only get guest riffers that are from MST; Mary Jo, Bridget, maybe they could even get Joel??? At any rate, I don't like guest riffers... except Chad Vader. But other than that, it must only be MST voices.

    I think you guys should really do this one now since it is a multi-award winning movie (and by award, I mean Razzies.)

    I thought the first hour or so had some good world building, but then they plot started and the movie just dragged on and on and on.

    Worthy riff material, if they can make up any new Batman jokes.

    I haven't seen it myself, but I know all about how bad it is, and I only intend to watch this movie if it is riffed. Ben Affleck as Batman, seriously, we can only stand A FLECK of him.

    Not to mention, besides how thin the plot line is, about half-way through the film when they start suggesting a "Justice League (Gee, I wonder how good that will be? If this movie is of any comparison, not great) " and mentioning other heroes it pretty much is becomes previews of future movies. And before I forget "Martha", seriously Bruce, I know you lost your parents and your mother was named Martha, but it is a common name, and you're going to get all emotional when someone says it, you need help.

    For the people who are suggesting that this is a good movie...no. Just no. You can enjoy the movie all you want and have fun watching it, but don't go saying it's a good movie. You might want to take a film studies class, or a cinematography class, or an acting class, or a class on film directing, or a class on coherent creative writing, and understand why this movie failed on all five counts. And that's before you even get to the wrongness done to the mythos of DC characters.

    This movie needs some riffing so much.

    The 2 hours of my life wasted on this would become worth it.

    If ever there was a movie made for Riffing. They even provided the courtesy of looooong pauses after stupid shit like "insert Riff here".

    And it's somehow bad for a movie to be humorless?? I think Marvel tries to put too much whimsy in their movies.

    This movie SUCKED. Wonder woman was pointless in this movie, Eisenberg was awful as Lex Luthor, more like a clash of the Joker and the Riddler. I purchased it so I could watch the 3 hour version, even the cashier at Walmart said the movie sucked as he rang it up. Unfortunately for me he was not wrong. It was an overly complicated mess, heck Batman's big fight scene (not including the Superman "fight scene"") was revealed in the trailer. Superman did not want to fight Batman, otherwise he would have crushed him in seconds. The only reason I am keeping the DVD is hoping rifftrax will record a commentary. I remember years ago Conan O'Brien did a joke about Batman vs Superman. The context was : Superman has super speed, super strength, super hearing, can fly, is invulnerable, has heat vision. Batman has a utility belt. The battle with Doomsday was not worth the 2 1/2 hour build up, after the pathetic "fight" between Batman and Superman. Seriously, they could not fight anyway, it would be over in seconds.

    Do we need to suggest this? A big-budget disappointment like this seems right up their alley.

  • Caleb Rodriguez commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    How about this: Tim Daly or George Newbern (Superman), Kevin Conroy (Batman), and Susan Eisenberg (Wonder Woman) either collab with you guys, or do the riff themselves with a script provided by you all? I know Eisenberg might be open to the idea.
