I’m puttering around on facebook and this little ad pops up mentioning the guys from MST3K covered Star Wars Episode IV. As a fan I clicked the link and was rewarded with something that is gonna keep me busy for a long long time.
Mike Nelson, Bill Corbett & Kevin Murphy (Along with some famous guest “Riffers”) have figured out to keep the laughs going, rip on the newest movies and not get the living daylights sued out of them. They have recorded what amounts to commentary tracks as mp3s and you play the mp3s at the same time as you watch the movies. In some cases they even have down-loadable movies via VOD.
Check out their site: RiffTrax.com

- Episode I: Phantom Menace
- Episode II: Attack of the Clones
