RiffTrax - Movies Made Funny!
By Oladas, Inc.
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
From the guys who brought you Mystery Science Theater 3000, RiffTrax makes movies FUNNY! Our hilarious commentaries turn some of the biggest blockbusters (and cheesiest B-movies) into comedy hits.
Using the app, you can download these "riffs" on blockbuster films like Twilight, Jurassic Park, Star Wars and more! The app listens to the movie, using your device's microphone, and automatically synchronizes the commentary to play along with perfect timing. Presto! That movie is now a comedy smash.
Get into RiffTrax and start watching movies in a whole new way!

Some Rough Spots But Still a Gem
This is one of the most underrated apps in the App Store. It may not be perfect interface-wise but syncing the riffs is a perfect use case for the tech. Also, the content is good and incredibly cheap. A few dollars to turn an otherwise unwatchable movie into a good comedy? Count me in. I think Apple should feature it.
Re-reading my own review I realize this actually sounds like a fake review! So let me just say this: watch the movie 300 with the rifftrax going. You will 100% agree that it is the definitive version of this movie. There aren’t many apps that possess the ability to utterly transform and elevate the quality of what is already considered premium content. That’s why I think Apple should promote it..
Suggestions with Love
Totally love Rifftrax and am enjoying this app. Now for the "however."
Unfortunately (or fortunately) many movies do not start with dialogue. No one would enjoy movies if they all began with a 30 second or more narration. It would be nice if the app could just start playing the track and use its microphone to improve the synchronization. A little note above the play button stating to press when the WB or Paramount logo fades would be enough to get the user on track.
Also, when using my phone, sometimes the joke track just stops and it takes me a bit to realize that it's stopped working. Even a little ding or sound effect to alert me the track has paused would be nice if the random pausing can't be helped.
I hope my input is helpful to others using the app and the developers as they release patches. Thanks for all your efforts!
Unable to be used by the blind
I really would like to give this app a much higher rating, but I cannot use it. I am a blind user of the iPhone, and this app does not work with the native speed meter that is built into iOS operating system. I have tried to contact these guys on Twitter about their app, and they have said it is coming, but that has been months. It would not take much for this app to be completely accessible at all. For everyone to use it.
