With the latest incarnation of Godzilla about to hit silver screens, the fine fellows over at Rifftrax hatched a plan so grand, it needed a new Kickstarter project to fund it!
They are currently seeking funds to secure the rights to do a live riff of Godzilla (1998). = D
Don't believe me? Let the guys tell you.
They're pretty much set in the funding but it still warrants so publicity due to the film itself. I'm a fan of giant monster movies. I'm a sucker for guys in rubber monster suits destroying scale model landscapes while they pretend to beat each other up. They are goofy and fun.
This particular entry in the storied Godzilla franchise... was not. They took the God out of Godzilla and bogged it down with junk that should've been dropped in post. Needless to say, it's right there in that sweet spot of bad that makes it the perfect fodder for the Rifftrax treatment. = P
If I can spare the scratch, I'm going to back it. If they can't get 'Godzilla', they'll snag something equally as bad and it will still make for a fun show. Plus, they have a level that gets you three shorts - one of which is 'Duck & Cover' - and that alone makes me happy. Now to do like Biff and sleep for a while.
'Till next time! = )
