It is no secret that I am a fan of RiffTrax, and these live events through Fathom are the next best thing from seeing the show live in Minneapolis.
This show was the best of both worlds for me, because not only am I a fan of RiffTrax but I am also a fan of The Asylum Home Entertainment. The Asylum is known for mock-busters like: Titanic 2, Transmorphers, Abraham Lincoln vs. Zombies, AVH: Alien vs. Hunter and many others! They also have their hand in plenty of monster/animal attack movies such as the Mega Shark Trilogy, which brings us to their cultural phenomenon that is Sharknado.
Now I was not a fan of this movie when I first saw it, I thought The Asylum had better good-bad movies under their belt but when I heard that RiffTrax was going to take down this film live, I knew there was no way it could go wrong!
There where some technical issues, such as when show-casing their next live event there was no audio to the movie they were riffing; but they handled it like a champ, remarking "I had no idea Godzilla was a silent film." There was another issue seclusive to my theater experience, the power shut down for about 30 seconds and when the picture came back on the movie jumped ahead about 5 or 10 minutes. Our theater was gracious enough to give everyone free popcorn in compensation for the interruption.
This was a wonderful experience and I recommend that you catch the second showing Tuesday July 15! It's worth your time and the price of admission. Click here to see show times and theaters near you for 2nd showing
