Friday Movie Quote

“I want you to round up every vicious criminal and gunslinger in the west. Take this down. I want rustlers, cut throats, murderers, bounty hunters, desperadoes, mugs, pugs, thugs, nitwits, halfwits, dimwits, vipers, snipers, con men, Indian agents, Mexican bandits, muggers, buggerers, bushwhackers, hornswogglers, horse thieves, bull dykes, train robbers, bank robbers, ass-kickers, shit-kickers and Methodists.”

-Hedley Lamarr (Harvey Korman), Blazing Saddles (1974)

Rifftrax Live: Rad

Rifftrax has announced their live show for 2023. The boys will be riffing Rad, a 1986 movie about BMX racing. The movie was directed by Hal Needham, director of Hooper, The Cannonball Run, and Smokey and the Bandit.

Rifftrax has a Kickstarter to raise money for the show. They exceeded their $250k goal on the first day. There’s just over a month left if you’re inclined to donate.

I’m a little disappointed that they’re only doing one live show, but I’ll happily take what I can get.
