We're gonna need more silhouette seats.
It's a good year for making fun of bad movies, and not just because we've already gotten at least one movie that heartily deserves it. More Mystery Science Theater is officially on the way with a brand new cast, but the originals—whether you're a Joel fan, a Mike fan, or both—are getting back together for a reunion show.Read More
"He can tell I ain't missin' no meals." - The anaconda
Back in May, RixxTrax ran a Kickstarter to fund their amazing send-up of he 1998 Godzilla—and they got so much cash that they were able to add a second screening. Now, we're to be the beneficiaries of that Kickstartery goodness, because RiffTrax is bringing their particular MST3K flair to Anaconda, live in theaters October 30th.Read More
Internet math: love for RiffTrax + hate for 1998 Godzilla = $$$.
We're still busy being excited about RiffTrax taking on the task of tearing through Sharknado in their upcoming RiffTrax Live, but that didn't stop them from launching a Kickstarter last night for their next live event: 1998 Godzilla. Yes, they're going to take on another movie so bad that it almost mocks itself.Read More
RiffTrax Live Brings Riffing Home to MST3K’s Birthplace in Minneapolis for Sharknado, Tickets on Sale Soon
If Minneapolis doesn't like it, will it shoot them into space?
RiffTrax is bringing the riffing back to where it all began with the Sharknado edition of RiffTrax live. They're bringing the show to the State Theater in Minneapolis where Mystery Science Theater 3,000 was born 25 years ago. If you can't make it to the theater, you can still see it in theaters throughout the US and Canada.Read More
Viewer Completely Misses the Point of RiffTrax, Wants Me to Fire Them, Because That’s Totally How TV Works
Down in front!
So, we've had a lot of RiffTrax coverage lately—as in, seriously, a lot—and it seems I've led some of the Internet's more impressionable denizens to believe I am in charge of them. After last night's hilarious Total Riff Off, I got a complaint from a viewer who wished they'd just shut up and enjoy demon bats in silence.Read More
In case you couldn't tell, we're pretty excited about RiffTrax lately.
Hey, did you know that RiffTrax, formerly the cast of Mystery Science Theater 3,000, is going to return to TV on National Geographic tonight? Because we've certainly been talking about it a lot. They've been talking about it, too, and they took to Reddit this afternoon to answer fan questions in an AMA, so we got some highlights together for you.Read More
We Got the Story on Tomorrow’s Total Riff Off on TV From RiffTrax and Mystery Science Theater Star Kevin Murphy
"You will see things come out of a koala that you never wanted to see."
"Making fun of weird animal stuff" pretty much describes a lot of what we do here on Geekosystem, but when we heard that RiffTrax was doing it on TV on National Geographic Channel, we were a bit surprised. So I talked to Kevin Murphy, former voice of Tom Servo and RiffTrax cast member to find out more.Read More
This is the most excited we've ever been for something that involves Tara Reid.
Mike Nelson, Bill Corbett, and Kevin Murphy just announced their next RiffTrax Live! event and it's a big one: Sharknado! You'll be able to catch it simulcast live on screens across the country on Thursday July 10 and Tuesday July 15th. They also dropped some details of their upcoming Nat Geo takeover!Read More
Not even nature is safe from biting sarcasm.
Mystery Science Theater 3,000 was one of the greatest shows in television history, and the show's stars, Mike Nelson, Kevin Murphy (Tom Servo), and Bill Corbett (Crow T. Robot), are still making movies fun in RiffTrax. Now, RiffTrax is coming to television and adding comedy to nature on National Geographic Channel.Read More
Can't wait to see what the erstwhile MST3K crew does with one of the corniest sci-fi movies of the 90s? Yeah, neither can we.
First, the bad news: the MST3K alums at RiffTrax couldn't lock down the rights to make a RiffTrax version of Twilight. The good news, of course, is that you don't need to watch Twilight now or ever again. The even better news, though, is that the team will bring their trademark heckling to the sci-fi classic Starship Troopers.Read More
In the not too distant future, somewhere in movie theaters, Mike Nelson and his RiffTrax pals could be making fun of Twilight live for your entertainment. That's right, the RiffTrax team wants to do another of their simulcast live events where they make fun of a movie, and they want that movie to be Twilight. To do that though, they have to acquire the rights to the film, which can be expensive. They've launched a Kickstarter campaign that is already over three times its goal, but that still might not be enough to make this happen -- and I really, really want this to happen.Read More

Things We Saw Today
As part of DC Comics' New 52, one character was rumored to be rebooted as an openly gay character, but who was it going to be? Well, on the heels of Marvel's gay wedding, we now know that it will be the Green Lantern himself, Alan Scott, exiting the closet, and making the DC universe more diverse and inclusive! But, something reminds us of another gay comic book character, something about the garb... Hmmm... (via The Beat, image via anonymous tip))Read More
Our Adorable Past
Ah, the vintage educational film. Enlightening, casually hyperbolic, ripe for MST3K commentary. Unfortunately, after a quick search, I couldn't find this 1953 short by the Centron Corporation, Your Health: Posture on RiffTrax, but consider this an opportunity to provide your own witty banter! Here is what you'll learn today, fellow computer users: slouching is the reason no one talks to you at parties, even if you're a perfectly attractive and friendly person, and the key to good posture is exercise, rest, and good shoes. Though we will tell you one thing: If your reflection in the mirror is mocking you because of your posture, you might have bigger problems than slouching. (Archive.org via Mother Board)Read More
We Have Done the Impossible and That Makes Us Mighty
When three of the guys from Mystery Science Theater 3000 realized five years ago that their presence was still required for the mockery of films of every genre, the world changed for the better because they created RiffTrax. Now, as non-robots, Michael J. Nelson, Kevin Murphy, and Bill Corbett (as well as a slew of other guests that have included the likes of "Weird" Al Yankovic and Neil Patrick Harris) celebrate five successful years that have brought us delightful commentary for today's box office hits (and misses). Because someone had to give Twilight the MST3K treatment. (And The Room, for that matter.) We're so happy it's these guys. (RiffTrax on YouTube via BuzzFeed)Read More
