    Deep Ape is not officially connected to Best Brains, Rifftrax, Cinematic Titanic, or Shout Factory and is 100% independent. The views expressed here are dumb, probably wrong, and they in no way represent the views of the aforementioned. Amen.

Next Rifftrax: Eragon (Thank You!)

In perhaps one of the most just acts ever carried out by Mr. Murphy and Mr. Nelson, the fantasy foul-up Eragon will recieve a round spanking as the next Rifftrax. I, for one, couldn’t be happier. The film is based on a novel written by a teenage male and, as a one-time teenage male, I know that that is not something which should be adapted for the big screen. A mix of teenage male hormones, Tolkien-fanboyishness, and delusions of grandeur do not mix, kids. Go play RuneScape and keep quiet.

The rifftrack will be out on May 9th (or the 11th; there’s some confusion). A sample is up here. The film features plenty of Jeremy Irons and John Malkovich action and has a theme song sung by Avril Lavigne. Enjoy!

One last aside: Why does the official Rifftrax art feature Mike and Kevin dressed up as a Civil War reenactor and a Mexican bandit, respectively? Perhaps I should leave that question to the philosophers.
