RiffTrax: Plan 9 from Outer Space LIVE! Nashville 2009 (2010)

RiffTrax, as I’m sure we all know by now, is the post-Mystery Science Theater 3000 project starring Mike Nelson, Kevin Murphy, and Bill Corbett. It started out as a purely downloadable form of entertainment, but has since grown popular enough to sell real, physical DVDs. These include RiffTrax Shorts Volume 1, previously reviewed on this site, as well as our current subject, RiffTrax: Plan 9 from Outer Space LIVE! Nashville 2009.

Yes, not only is RiffTrax popular enough to produce real DVDs, but they’ve also earned the clout to put on live shows out in the real world, giving their fans a rare excuse to actually leave their homes. In 2009, a live event was staged in Nashville, Tennessee and broadcast to theaters all across the country, featuring the RiffTraxers (RiffTraxians?) taking on one of the most infamous “bad” movies of all time, Ed Wood’s Plan 9 from Outer Space. And as you may have already guessed from the title, this DVD is a document of that event.

    What I loved best about Mike, Bill and Kevin on MST3K (or even Mike, TRACE and Kevin) was that they performed characters that were not only funny, they were loveable and relatable. They were empathetic. When a movie was bad, you enjoyed it with them. When it was REALLY bad, you felt their pain. They’re still really, really funny today, (I laughed so much when they riffed on Inception, though it was a good movie) but they didn’t have quite the same special quality, the same empathy, that they did on MST3K. That’s just my opinion.

    I find it odd that there’s ANYBODY left on the internet who doesn’t love Jonathan Coulton, let alone who hasn’t heard of him. I mean, surely you’ve played the Portal games, right?

    • I don’t know much about Albert as I prefer him being a man of mystery; but, I don’t think he’s much of a gamer, nor do I think he is very much a fan of modern nerd culture. 

      That’s why I wasn’t surprised that he was so obviously wrong about Coulton.  And, yes, on my planet opinions can totally be wrong.  Don’t agree with me?  That’s because you’re wrong.

        Well, Albert is a radically different person from me, I can tell you that much. Granted, I don’t think much of modern geek culture either, but I think I have sufficiently individual reasons for that…

        Though, in regards to the article, “weird for weird’s sake humor” is right up my alley!
