Movie Reviews

Mothra, Rifftrax

By Tom Campbell
An acquired taste, the live- commentary-on-terrible-movies genre is well represented in this version of Mothra. Mike Nelson (formerly Joel Hodgson's replacement on MST3K) was particularly witty. With...

Classic Japanese kaiju at its best (worst!)

By kean57
This movie, it must be said, is something of a mess; just how scary is a moth...even a giant one? However, as bad as the basic premise is, it DOES have its moments...though not probably in the way its...

Rifftrax Mothra was an amazing experience. I am definitely looking forward to the next one!...

Fun Night Out

By fishwithsj
It took a monster movie to do it, but I finally went and saw a RiffTrax Live production (the crew from Mystery Science Theater 3000). I had low expectations even though I loved the TV show. But this...

LOVED the movie riff. The guys are still on top of their game. Had a very entertaining time....


By egungun
Pros: It was a goof to see a corny movie from my childhood. Cons: The comedians doing the voice-over weren't funny. They need to step up their game. Moving forward, be funny!...

Mothra v. Rodan

By mdmphd321
I think a tighter film like RODAN would have been a better riff. Or perhaps Mothra V. Godzilla. There's a lot of fantastical bloat in MOTHRA that I don't remember sitting thru as a kid. If a film...
