3 RiffTrax Movies to Watch Instead of the Golden Globes

The Golden Globes are on tonight, but who wants to watch a long, boring awards show?  Instead, you could spend that time watching horrible movies made funny by RiffTrax!

Here are three recent RiffTrax releases that would fill your Sunday evening with far more entertainment than a bloated awards ceremony.

Take one washed up football "superstar" and put him in a movie about a cop infiltrating a biker gang.  Throw in some good old fashioned blackmail by the FBI and Lance Henrikson playing the leader of the aforementioned gang, and you have yourself a wonderfully terrible action movie that is seeping cliché from every plot hole.

No Retreat, No Surrender

I wrote about No Retreat, No Surrender last March in my list of movies I thought would be perfect for RiffTrax.  This past October, this movie was riffed.  It is one of my all-time favorite bad movies to watch, so I was over the moon!  

At the risk of sounding biased, this is an outstanding riff.  It has even moved up into my top three riffs of all time!

This is a movie about a guy who is trained by the ghost of Bruce Lee, and has a showdown with JCVD, who had just beaten up the local martial arts champion.  It doesn't get much cheesier than this.

Talk about a steaming turd of a movie... this might be the worst film I have ever seen.  Shot entirely on a VHS camcorder, this is a movie about a talking purple alligator puppet who lures a girl into a cave, where he convinces her to carry him around to help him out.  

This movie involved beach ninjas, Joe Estevez, an acoustic guitar playing over ninety-nine percent of the movie, very little rollerblading, and the greatest meltdown by Kevin Murphy ever!
