"First viewing - Aug. 23rd Seems like I may have seen parts of this on TV at some point, but I definitely never saw the whole thing before. And so, what better way to see it than at a Rifftrax screening?

But hey, I still got to see them tear Mothra apart and it was so much fun. As is often the case with these things their jokes hit the mark more oft"
