Twilight: New Moon: The LOL Edition

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”.

That’s okay, though, I recognize I’m not in the target audience. No big deal.)

The good news is that the Rifftrax crew have, as their fans fervently hoped, released a new MP3 download to play along with the recent DVD release of “Twilight: New Moon”. 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. You can watch a video sample on the Rifftrax page, and I’ve noticed some unofficial fan compilations on YouTube, as well.
