    Probably not. Rifftrax quite often targets movies based upon how many people are likely to own the DVD, hence making fun of movies that actually aren't bad or even "riffable", such as The Dark Knight.

    They will most likely riff the standard release, because it will be what most people in the world will own.

    Oh this is gonna be good. :D  I kinda figured that ROTF would get Rifftraxed sooner or later. I mean, they did it with the first one.

    The Dark Knight was a great movie, but that doesn't mean it wasn't riffable!

    It is one of the best ones too.

    This one had "Riff" writen all over it and I can't wait. I am sure it will be very awesome!

    ROTF is it's own RiffTrax.

    I normally enjoy Rifftrax, but I'm probably gonna pass on this one. Nelson & Co. seem to have a real, seething hatred for the TF movies, and some of their comments in the riff of the first one just made no sense, ("Is it intentional that Optimus Prime and Megatron look as alike as two baby ducklings?!" --- Huh?)

    If they'd riff it like they normally do (just jokes with the occasional hit on the movie) I'd probably like it, but from the blurb they'll probably just continuously slam a movie that I love and I've heard enough slamming of.

    (Also, why does their poster have Megatron's face on a silver Bumblebee's body?)

    That is debatable. I've found Rifftrax to be quite boring because the films they target aren't particularly *bad* films. As I said, because their business model depends on DVD ownership for their commentary tracks to be used, they ergo need to go after big movies that for the most part, aren't truly awful and at at the very least competently made.

    I recall Corbett or Murphy commenting (on the subject of the Dark Knight) that it's much harder to riff on a good film.


    In my opinion, it would be more fun if, like the MST3K days, they went after 1 or less star films as that would provide more of a comedy goldmine, but nobody would own those bad films on DVD, so that would never work out.

    mockery-for-mockery's-sake is a bit cynical, but regardless of how many sacred cows rifftrax slay they're worth it if they're entertaining in their own right.

    i don't find them that funny, so i strike a happy medium by stealing rifftrax off the internet.

    I really don't find any Rifftraxx funny, in fact they seem really lame. They remind me of that annoying guy in the theater or relative everyone has who is painfully obnoxious and can't keep their mouth shut during a movie.

    Don't think I've ever listened to one. But then, I never found MST3K that funny.

    See "Cinematic Titanic." It is from all the "other" MST3K guys, and is much better. They go after bad movies, and utilize the silhouette in front of the movie screen. Highly reccomended!

    RonimousPrime: missing the point does not mean what you think it means. Unless you honestly believe the point of Rifftraxx is to annoy you.

    I really can't wait for this rifftrax to come out. It's going to be good.
    I mean if you take a step back, you can totally see why Bayformers was riffed on. It's a pretty bad movie. A special effects blockbuster, granted, but when you get right down to the meat of it's riff worthy.
