Editorial Reviews

Roll out the barrels, hoist the steins and do whatever it is you do with Schweinsbraten: It s time for RiffTrax Shortstoberfest! Mike, Kevin and Bill from MST3K® and RiffTrax® strap on their lederhosen and exact revenge with their hilarious commentary (we don't know why they insist on wearing lederhosen. You can t even see them.) And best of all, unlike its namesake, Shortstoberfest is 100% polka free!

On this DVD, you'll meet Gregory, the toughest baby skunk on the block in Little Lost Scent. You'll resist the urge to flee screaming from the hideous talking demon-pillow in Beginning Responsibility: Taking Care of Your Own Things. And, in what may be the most remedial short we've ever encountered, beginners can learn to draw a rectangle in...Drawing For Beginners: The Rectangle.

Clocking in at nearly two hours, RiffTrax Shortstoberfest is another hilarious collection of the RiffTrax guys at their very best!

Rifftrax Shortstoberfest is 104 minutes of good solid laughs from three of the former stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000. Shorts include:

- Back To School With Joan Miller. An overlong look at some of the tamest, most plaid fashions ever.
- Call It Free. A now nostalgic film about service stations when they actually used to provide service. If you're easily annoyed by stereotype portrayals of women as non-mechanically inclined simpletons with bad driving habits, you better skip this one.
- Little Lost Scent. A fanciful nature film about the adventures of a little skunk.
- An Aquarium In Action. The use of the word "action" is a misnomer.
- Drawing For Beginners: The Rectangle. This one is as exciting as it sounds, but it's funny on its own because it's so ridiculously unaware of it's own below-rudimentary approach to art. This is one of my favorites in the collection, great jokes throughout.
- Families: Food And Eating. See how people in a few different parts of the world prepare dinner.
- Beginning Responsibility: Taking Care Of Your Things. A small boy learns how to clean up his room from some toys with creepy voices.
- Geography Of Your Community. The title is a bit misleading, but if you like pottery, it's for you.

I own all the Rifftrax shorts DVDs and I think this is one of the funniest. The material is lightweight and the jokes are dense. It's good escapist humor for nearly two hours. Enjoy!

While channel surfing instead of going out clubbing on a cold winter night back in early 1995 I happened on a show called Comedy Central's "Mystery Science Theature 3000". I thought, ok why not i'll give it the 5 minute attention span shot before continuing to surf. I don't remember which episode it was that I watched but that 5 minutes was all it took. One word applies and that word is HILLARIOUS! I was instantly hooked and found myself recording episodes each week on VHS tapes even pause editing out commercials. I even went to the convention the show held in Minneapolis in 1996 and hadda blast. Sadly MST 3k ended. However Micheal J. Nelson, Bill Corbet, and Kevin Murphy the same cast of MST 3k continue to shine on loud and proud with RiffTracks. With the hillarious quips, arcane references, and biting satire that made MST 3k so priceless is ever so present here. I have already started a DVD collection of RiffTracks and will continue to do so. I highly recommend purchasing Shortstoberfest as well as any other RiffTracks from years past. I think you'll agree it's well worth the money.

"Shortstoberfest" is a new collection of shorts from veteran movie-riffers Bill Corbett, Mike Nelson, and Kevin Murphy. Of all the things the guys at Rifftrax produce, it's the shorts collections I love most, and this DVD is no exception.

The shorts selected this time are mostly very good, and some are great. My least favorite short in the collection is "Back to School with Joan Miller," which is an extremely long film full of excruciating (and affordable!) fashions from yesteryear. This is one that was good for the first five minutes or so but became monotonous very quickly. I was also impartial to "An Aquarium in Action," which is about grade school students and their aquarium. I know it sounds titillating, but while it has a few amusing comments, it is not one of the stronger shorts in the set.

On the flip side, there are some great and weird subjects here, too. I was extremely fond of "Little Lost Scent" featuring the wanderings and encounters of a baby skunk that's a little more aggressive than might be wise for an animal his size (I know he reeks, but I still give the bear good odds!) The film with the funniest title is "Drawing For Beginners: The Rectangle." This one is a very (and I mean very) basic introduction to drawing rectangles of different dimensions. To illustrate their points the filmmakers turn some of the rectangles drawn into three dimensional models! The wonder of it all! "Call It Free" is a short that details the mechanical ineptitude of female drivers (and their husbands, too) by showcasing all the convenient services that are provided in a modern gas station. (Or at least used to be.) "Families: Food and Eating" shows us mealtime highlights from around the world, and reminds us how truly ugly fashion was in 1970s San Francisco.

One of Mystery Science Theater 3000's greatest contributions to pop culture was unearthing the plethora of ancient training & educational films and tearing them apart prior to the show's main feature. These odd films practically beg to be insulted. Their twisted and often completely wrong-headed (though well-intentioned) methods, stories & conclusions are the stuff of drug-induced mania. No one really lived or acted like these films would like us to believe. Rather these were rose-colored interpretations of some perfect anglo-WASPy idealized imaginary world that never did or could exist. These RIFFTRAX "shorts" editions are the next best thing to the good old days when MST3K was in its heyday. Mike, Kevin & Bill are keeping that proud tradition alive. Many times with these RIFFTRAX 'shorts' DVDs you get a mix: one or two super-good ones, a few mediocre ones and one or two that are just OK. Luckily for us, in this volume all 8 of these shorts are very funny, with "Call It Free," "Drawing for Beginners," the especially bizarre & disturbing "Taking Care of Your Own Things" and "Geography of Your Community" among the funniest of ANY in the RIFFTRAX line. The subjects are pleasantly wide-ranging and the guys score almost all direct bull's-eyes with their zingers. The extremely reasonable price makes these 'SHORTS' collections a very cheap investment in some big laughs, with a high replay value. I've watched these several times and they're still funny, even though I know most of the gags. SHORTSTOBERFEST is a thoroughly fun & funny way to laugh it up for 100 minutes. 5 STARS
