  1. Tomes and Talismans

    The Wipers have invaded and destroyed earth as we know it, and the one hope for mankind is... the Dewey Decimal System? Eighth graders everywhere were tricked into learning what a card catalog was while ostensibly viewing a gripping post-apocalyptic thriller (in reality, about 12% gripping thriller and 88% boring conversations like "But if we run out of room in category 801, how can we add any further volumes on literature of western Pakistan?", and "Well, I actually prefer "How to Eat Fried Worms" by Thomas Rockwell, but [sulkily] who listens to Lester around here ..."). And it features "sophisticated…

  2. The Land Unknown

    It was post on the old MST3K in season 7 that this was scheduled, but the moved to Sci Fi channel ended that. The Land Unknown (1957) is a sci-fi, CinemaScope adventure film about a naval expedition trapped in an Antarctic jungle. The story was allegedly inspired by the discovery of unusually warm water in Antarctica in 1947. It starred Jock Mahoney and Shirley Patterson and was directed by Virgil W. Vogel. The film is notable for its low-budget special effects, which include men in dinosaur suits, puppets and monitor lizards standing in for dinosaurs. William Reynolds recalled the studio…

  3. Nicholas and Alexandra (1971)

    It's Tom Baker's (the fourth Doctor) first major film role and the acting is very jaunty and wooden. It recounts the events of WWII from the perspective of Czar Nicolas II and, boy, is it a bad movie. There's plenty of scenes in this movie that is just begging to be riffed.

    RA-RA-RASPUTIN
    LOVER OF THE RUSSIAN QUEEN
    HE HAD A CAT THAT REALLY WAS GONE

    That song to be involved somehow in the commentary.

  4. Heartbreak Ridge

    Sergeant Highway (Eastwood) is in charge of training a platoon of (you guessed it) screw-ups and misfits. Can he prepare them to be combat-ready Marines? Oh and it isn't about Korea. The battle (of course there is a battle) takes place in Grenada in 1983. Clint Eastwood's "Heartbreak Ridge" (alternate title: "How Mary-Sue Got Her Groove Back") deserves to be riffed. http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/heartbreak_ridge/

  5. Pee-Wee's Big Adventure (1985)

    1) A Tim Burton road movie starring a man child
    2) There isn't a frame of the film that CAN'T be riffed
    3) "...Large Marge sent me"

  6. The Man from Earth

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0756683/

    How did this get 8.0 on imdb? Some of the worst acting ever.

  9. The Red Violin (1998)

    I had to be dragged to see this in a foreign film theater 'cause a relative wanted to go see it... then lived through hell seeing it again in Foreign Film Class - at a college (though without clones like the film that was made there - later made it into a MST3K show). Therefore, if I have to see it again, it'll be bearable torture.

  10. Blast Vegas

    This is another abortion of a movie courtesy of the SYFY (SciFi) channel. It features Frankie Muniz and all his stage prowess. Filmed in the spirit of Sharknado.

    "Fraternity brothers head to Las Vegas for spring break. One of them steals the sword of Thutmose III from a hotel. But they have unleashed an ancient curse, and a sand storm that slowly moves down the strip, destroying famed hotels. Seeing the massive destruction, they find out about the legend of the sword and try to stop the storm. They must find a sacred urn, the largest piece of pure gold,…

  11. Village of the dammned

    The 1995 version with a thin Kirstie Alley, Mark Hamil as a minister and Christopher Reeve.
    Freakish children with glowing eyes killing people. It's fantastic and awful. Kirstie yelling for blood and urine alone is worth riffing the movie.

  12. The Fantastic Voyage

    When a brilliant scientist suffers a brain injury in an attempted assassination the only logical solution is to build a submarine, find an unqualified crew, and shrink it all down to the size of a blood vessel so that the crew can use ray guns to attack the brain injury. This movie won the 1967 Academy Award for Best Special Effects, and is one of the slowest movies ever made as it makes an hour and forty minutes feel like forty hours and a minute. Gold, simply gold.

  13. World Gone Wild (with Adam Ant)!!!

    This is a wonderful(-ly bad) post-apocalyptic movie with Adam Ant staring as a socio-pathic cult leader who reads to his followers the words of Charles Manson. (I used to have this on VHS, taped off of late night TV. I'm not sure how difficult it would be to get today, but this film is begging to be riffed.)

  15. Johnny Lingo (1969)

    The endearing, low-budget film that teaches us about the value of kindness, self-worth, and the trading of cows for wives. As a bonus, we are treated to many Polynesian men in skirts.

  16. Pooh's Great School Bus Adventure

    In a bizarrely contrived spin-off from "Welcome to Pooh Corner," Winnie the Pooh and friends -- all of which are depicted by men in costumes -- try to teach young audiences about bus safety, if not frighten them to the point of having nightmares for the next week or two. Here is the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UF_3MrYXDw4

  17. Nursing- Holmes (Burton) Films Inc.

    (Hope this doesn't double or triple post- having issues with uploading-will remove movie file, see if that helps)

    Link to the film (public domain ftw)
    https://archive.org/details/Nursing1942

    Reasons to Riff:
    1. Nurses must be able to do sit-ups in flower patterns (2:05)
    2.They must wield giant glass IV bottles, which goes along with their mixology training (8:12), (3:08)
    3. "Child nursing...requires a liking for children" (9:49) Genius.

    I work at a nursing school and would LOVE to be able to share this with the students. In a competitive program like ours, students are under a lot of stress- they need a…

    Young Jonah Johnson and his family move into Mystic, CT. The town's local fisherman's son, Schooner, quickly befriends him and the two soon discover what seems to be a 300-year-old treasure map.

  19. Three Kinds of Heat

    What more do you need to Riff this? It's got action (not so much), it's got real live stereotypes, it's got Robert Ginty! And, I saved the best for last, it's got THE Doctor as the bad guy. This should have been a comedy and now you guys can finally fulfill the destiny of this movie that is not one, not two, but Three Kinds of Heat!

  20. The Adventures of Food Boy

    A teenager can create food from nothing, so naturally he becomes a superhero named Food Boy. Also, this is an honest-to-god still from it.
