Corbett Hits Me Off Guard

October 23rd, 2008 by | Tags: , ,

So there’s this comic character I liked from a couple years back who I knew wasn’t long for the world. True to my prediction, he didn’t do anything outside of ten issues worth of appearances, outside of appearing in the background. I knew that the guy was completely gone from everyone’s mind and would MAYBE appear in an issue of Avengers: The Initiative, if that.

When Rifftrax released their sample for their take on The Happening, I found myself taken aback.

It’s about 18 seconds in.

I don’t know. Maybe it’s just me, but I find that reference so surreal.

I understand this post may have completely wasted your time, so enjoy this as well.

You have no idea how many times I’ve watched this thing.

  1. I had a hangover upon coming into work but I think that video cured me.

  2. They have Ninja written on their foreheads like we couldn’t figure it out.

    And one of them is dressed like a ninja-pimp. A NINJA PIMP!!!

    This is awesome!

    What is the name of the movie?

    I mean I own copies of American Ninja and American Ninja 2 on VHS (funny thing is I don’t own a working VCR anymore).

    The 80’s rocked for all the ninja movies.

    It reminds me of those weird kids i knew in high school who were secretly training to be ninja’s.

  3. I was sure you were talking about Gravity until I watched the clip.

  4. So very painful. I’ll never forgive you.

  5. WHUT.

    I don’t know if the best bit was the Ninja Boomerang or…

    “Ninja Challenge.”

  6. Would you believe me and my boss at work routinely have that same conversation?

    I think my favorite part of it all is the guy lunging forward with his mouth already open to deliver, “I DON’T CARE WHO YOU ARE!” It’s such a badly acted gesture.

    And if you’re wondering, the movie is called Ninja: Silent Assassin.

  7. BURNT?!

  8. Hahaha, man, I would have loved that riff if I had watched the whole thing first instead of just that clip.

    Er, I mean, without the lead in by you can coming out of nowhere I would have laughed my head off, but having you point it out ahead of time kept the funny but not the surprise, you know.

    But I’m about 2 behind on my Rifftrax, I gotta get this and Iron Man soon.

    I liked Toxin as well, he’s sort of like what Venom was when he was the “Lethal Protector”, but actually believable as it because he was a cop who never tried to, you know, kill Spider-Man. I hope Marvel does something else with him, eventually.

  9. I find it interesting that the final page of Venom/Carnage (the story that introduced Toxin) and the final page of New Ways to Die (which introduced Anti-Venom) parallel each other so much.

    A story involving Anti-Venom and Toxin could have a lot of interesting dynamics. Anti-Venom could understand that Spider-Man didn’t want to be cured of his powers, but would he listen to Toxin? Mulligan and his symbiote have almost a dysfunctional father/son relationship that would complicate matters.

  10. The fewer symbiotes the better?
