It took all of about 5 seconds after the video finished for me to kick in my own funds to help this team bring this game to life (and get some Backer bonus game items to boot).

In honor of the enterprise’s half-decade, they have released this highlight reel of some of RiffTrax’s best moments, mocking everything from Titanic to Highlander. But with dozens upon dozens of films wittily eviscerated, the folks behind RiffTrax have produced so many great one-liners that a true highlight reel could stretch on into a full two-hour film.

The media’s lightweight treatment of professional psychics is a deadly serious matter to Randi. “People like Sylvia Browne have a very high profile, and she’s always going to be on Montel Williams and she’s going to be on Larry King,” he says. “And they know what’s going on, they’re smart people. They know what’s going on and they don’t care.”

What, after all, do you have to hide from Pepsi? And why should that corporate megalith care about your secrets out of countless potential Pepsi drinkers?
