I’ve written before about how “alternate commentaries” can make old movies seem new again, mostly as a way of saving money vs. buying more DVDs. In that article I made a few recommendations from Rifftrax, among them the teen “vampire” “love” story “Twilight”.

I’m happy to report after watching it that it was at least as good as the first one. Best $4 I’ve spent all year, in fact.
