I’m back! With another movie review! This time, Fathom Events kindly gave me press passes to attend a screening of RiffTrac Live! for “Anaconda.” Guys and gals, it was amazing.
Back during the summer, the guys at RiffTrax started a Kickstarter project, asking backers to help them fund for riffing both the 1998 version of “Godzilla” and the movie “Anaconda.” My husband and I backed the Kickstarter project, and we saw “Godzilla” (that was amazing), and we recently saw “Anaconda.” Yay for crowfunding awesome, nerdy projects!
As always the guys at RiffTrax did an good job riffing the movie, and the short they showed before the movie was perfect for Halloween. They always pick the best shorts to show. However, I did miss the Norman shorts. But, back to “Anaconda.”
Compared with other movies they have riffed in the past, I would say they did a decent job riffing the film, but it definitely was not as funny as their other riffs. There were definitely a lot of good, belly laughing moments, especially in regards to scenes with Ice Cube. Oh. My. However, I still enjoyed it. The best part of this certain RiffTrax Live! event was the goodies they gave away. For a limited time they were giving away, a free ebook written by one of their writers, ringtones, access to a free short, and more. That was definitely a great Halloween treat!
Overall, I had a great night watching them riff, and I can’t wait to see their next event in December when they riff “Santa Claus.” You bet I am going to be there. Until next time, see all of you later, my friends!
