I loved this, both the film itself and the Rifftrax commentary. This movie is so laughably bad it almost doesn't need the Rifftrax treatment. Add the riffing by MST3K alumni Mike Nelson, Kevin Murphy and Bill Corbet and you have a terrific evening. Everything provided by the Rifftrakkers is great -- top notch work. But this movie -- horrible acting (the main female is probably the only one with actual acting experience and/or training), the slow scenes last a very long time, it takes forever for the movie to get to its "shock and horror" scenes, and special effects? more like silly effects -- so terribly bad that most people would not believe your description of it. My only complaint is that I missed many jokes due to the near-constant laughter (but I'll fix that when the Rifftrax folks issue a DVD version of this live show), but you can't blame the audience for this. Cannot wait for the next Rifftrax live show!

RiffTrax's Birdemic

The movie Birdemic itself is mind-numbingly awful, but the RiffTrax crew makes it incredibly funny. I have never laughed so much in any movie! The old Mystery Science Theater 3000 gang are wonderful. Sharing the experience with a theater full of people with the same sense of humor was a joy. As usual, I missed a third of the jokes, because I was laughing so hard. I hope RiffTrax keeps bringing their humor to my local movie theater!

Worst movie ever, best Riff ever

This may take the place of Plan 9 from Outer Space as worst movie ever. Plan 9 feels quaint and charming compared to how badly Birdemic came out. This makes it an awesome riff, and it was a night of awe inspired laughs. The best part? They are making a Birdmedic 2!

Ruffle your feathers at Birdemic

WOW! This is the hardest I have laughed in a long time!!!! Learn how to pronounce Solarpanels, learn about stock options, and becoming a Victoria's Secret model. This movie has it all! I especially loved the parking scenes that are only out done by the pulling into traffic sequences!

While the movie itself is an atrocity to movies, what the rifftrax guys did with it made it worth seeing more than once! After so many years they still manage to have you crying with laughter at things you didn't initially notice were going on. I had seen Birdemic on Netflix before seeing it with Rifftrax last night, and never truly grasped how 50% of the movie is parking and pulling out in to traffic, or how many people botched their lines. I hope the rifftrax guys keep these events going. As long as they do, I will be attending.
