Yeah, guess which movie me and my uncle MSTied on Thanksgiving.

Amusingly enough, I thought Valentina (i.e. unsympathetic Eurotrashy rich wench) was putting on an accent, but apparently the "actress" is Russian. Luc Besson needs to stop casting women he meets in techno clubs.

The American villain (I don't care about his name; his title shall always be "Crazy Gun Guy" to me) was a source of much hilarity, because very little of what he said wasn't undermined by what he did. It puzzles me that he rose to such a level of power by being so consistently contrary.

If you want to see what Bond flicks mostly once were, go see Transporter 3, and then go see Quantum of Solace for a bit of contrast. Personally, I'd wait for the former to hit the DVD bargain bin, then assault it with friends and booze.

Regarding casting venues, that would be an improvement for him.

They keep using that term.  I do not think it means what they think it does.

I think most people in this crowd would share my view that Repo: The Genetic Opera is awesome.  If it's playing in your town, go see it.

Full blog to follow.

I NEED to see this. It looks bawls awesome. I think bawls is a good adjective.

I found out it was playing at the Bloor Cinema...

And now it's not.  :sadpanda: Rupert Giles, Christine Daať and Henry Kissinger in a post-apocalyptic rock opera? Why couldn't they have gone for a wider release?

Put simply, test audiences and critics hated it.

Of course, test audiences probably hated it because they were told to expect "a fresh horror from the director of Saw 2-4".  Which it really, really isn't.

As for critics -- most of the reviews posted on the Repo website are fair (including several that say "It's not for me but I see its appeal"), but the Rolling Stone one I linked says fuck-all about the movie except that it has Paris Hilton in it.  The comments thread is full of people accusing Travers of not even seeing the movie, and frankly his review doesn't give much indication that he did.

The director mentioned one review that said he's worse than Uwe Boll.  I haven't been able to find that one, but I can categorically state that Repo! The Genetic Opera is a better movie than House of the Dead.

Anyway.  All that is why there's a limited release.  Lionsgate refused to distribute it and now the creators are touring it around the country themselves, one theater at a time.

Finally got around to seeing Bond like a day before it leaves or something.

[spoiler]Was mildly annoyed that they ended the previous movie with Mr. White's capture, was pleased to see him almost immediately turn the tables on them.[/spoiler]

[spoiler]Poor Ms. Fields. I was really hoping they wouldn't kill her off, though I knew they would the moment I fucking saw her. Does every bond movie have to have two girls? One to die, and one to fuck?[/spoiler]

[spoiler]Was happy to see the one to fuck did not actually get fucked. It would have felt artificial, like most goddamn ham fisted romance subplots.[/spoiler]

By the way, M is basically the best character by like a factor of 10.

In my local paper, on the ad for The Day The Earth Stood Still, was a little seal which said "The only place to see the world premier of the trailer: X-Men Origins Wolverine"

 :lol: They're actually advertising trailers now.

Let's be fair, guys -- Gort is the perfect role for Keanu Reeves.
