I just saw the one from 1985 (second one?) on local broadcast today. The dialogue was so over-acted, I almost thought it was a parody of a daytime soap. I almost think half of the riffs could be, "wow! What can you say about that?" Cause the audience would already be laughing at how badly acted the scene was. It is like a spaghetti hero movie that is a mash-up of mythology, SciFi and pro wrestling with the flavor of a 1980's daytime soap at a toga party. I am voting to riff this one at a live theater even. The reviews on imdb speak for themselves: http://m.imdb.com/title/tt0089271/reviews?ref_=m_tt_urv
Sounds promising. Is there a trailer somewhere?

Warty the toad could be added on as a short :-)
Anything from the 80's is ripe for commentary, but the 80's version of Flash Gordon is a special type of cheese. Check out the trailer on iTunes or youtube if you don't believe me. The cheerleading scene as Flash is fighting on the spiked pedestal is especially bad!!! I would definitely love to see this one riffed!
