For years we at RiffTrax have lived under the mistaken belief that we are Beowulf. So we were shocked when a cartoon version of Ray Winstone squeezed into a tiny pair of leather battle panties (LBPs) and set us straight in no uncertain terms. And he's right - HE. IS. BEOWULF!! Though it took some getting used to the idea that we are not Beowulf, in all honesty it's been a whole lot more pleasant to come into the office and see pants where one once saw nothing but a sea of LBPs.
But if you haven't yet exceeded your limit, may we suggest you download our hilarious new RiffTrax for Beowulf in which a fully clothed Mike, Kevin and Bill take on our less than clothed hero, his extremely unclothed lizardy paramour (played with big boobs gusto by Digi-lina Jolie), and a disappointingly unclothed Anthony Hopkins.
IT! IS! FUNNY!!!
RiffTrax are downloadable audio commentaries featuring comedian Michael J. Nelson heckling (or riffing)
films in the style of Mystery Science Theater 3000. The RiffTrax are sold on a web site where users can
purchase and download the commentaries. The site was launched by Nelson and Legend Films in 2006 and is
based in San Diego.
The movies chosen to riff in Mystery Science Theater 3000 were predominantly low-budget B-movies because
the show itself was low-budget and producers could only afford films with expired copyright or had
otherwise cheap licenses. The idea of RiffTrax came about after Mystery Science Theater 3000 was
cancelled when Nelson researched and consulted a lawyer about the possibility of directly releasing
DVDs of films with the commentaries included, but realized that he would be "sued out of existence".
The best-sounding method of distributing the commentaries would be to sell them independently of
the films to avoid having to obtain the rights to distribute the movies themselves. There would be
no legal or monetary restrictions to prevent Nelson from producing them, though viewers would have
to provide the movies themselves.
