Last weekend my son (16) and I watched the Rifftrax version of Birdemix.

He made the most astute assessment of the film I've heard so far.

"It's like a film where all of the characters are NPC's in a video game."

Haven't seen it, but Birdemic 2 didn't even get the Rifftrax treatment. It's supposedly a little too in on the joke 2nd time around which makes it less fun. Birdemic 3 might be even worse

In Birdemic 2, did the hero ever learn how to walk properly?

That's how Sharknado was. The first was ridiculous cheese and a pretty great riff, but the second (and further) were too in in the joke. I think the second only got riffed because there was some promotional money from Syfy.

Rifftrax also did his two earlier movies, Julie and Jack, and Replica.

There was a lot of blowback with them doing the first one because even that one is a little too winky

I liked the videogame better. The bird movements were much more realistic.

Yeah, I can understand that. I didn't disagree with the blowback. I can see them doing it to cash in on the meme trend of the day to sell more tickets and they might have made a few bucks directly from Syfy, I think. It wasn't a bad riff, though.

I also heard this, but having seen all the director's other movies and found them hilarious(especially Replica), I gave it a shot and had a blast. I think the whole "in on the joke" thing is way overblown.

You can always watch Rifftrax with Twitch chat.  You just don't get to choose which movie is playing and can't pause.

The first was such a waste of time. I can't imagine putting aside the time to watch Birdemic 2. Good luck to anyone into that. You do you.

You know, my razor is that SOMEBODY has to put together some effort to make an entertaining bad movie. If it is simply an effort to grab the cash, then there are a million YouTube channels out there doing it better, or more desperately, or more sincerely.

I lean toward older bad movies because time gives them some sincerity, or history, or background. Nobody is making a buck or a career out of a clunker pooped out in 1965 or 1985. You also have to give props to the greater time and effort that went into them. Nobody was editing them on a laptop, or using greenscreens.

I guess that makes me sound like a hipster or something. Notice that I did not use the word artisanal, so... there is that.

A hipster nearing the retirement home maybe.

I'll be at Fantastic Fest this year, and I will be skipping this film. I'd rather see a movie where the people are trying to make something good.
