I'm surprised by the number of people I meet who were fans of Mystery Science Theater 3000 who have never heard of Rifftrax. Mike Nelson & the actors who voiced the bots have gotten together and made MST3K-style commentaries for dozens of recent movies. The tracks can be downloaded from their website and automatically synch up with the movie when played on a computer. I haven't seen them all, but my two favorites so far are Battlefield: Earth (yes, it's as bad as you've heard--the massive codpiece worn by John Travolta's character makes me smile just thinking about it) and The Fifth Element.
