One of the more fun things I’ve gotten to do lately is to attend the RiffTrax Live: The Room event which occurred as a part of the Tribeca Film Festival last week. I would never describe myself as an utter devotee of “MST3K,” but I’ve certainly seen my fair share of episodes, and RiffTrax is very much a related entity.
Now, if you know me you might not think that I’d really be down with the whole idea of encouraging talking in theaters, but there are definitely occasions where it works. I’ve already written about the “Clue” event that I attended last month, and now I’ve been to a RiffTrax Live show.
I don’t want to get into another “talking during movies is wrong” discussion, but I do think it’s worth noting that there are ways in which it can be done the right way and ways in which can be done the wrong way. For the RiffTrax Live show, it most definitely was done the right way. Everything about it was right.
And, rather than continuing discussing it here, I’m going to direct you to what I wrote at IGN about it.
