    And then, when he’s done getting it released in the Sates, he can totally make sure it hits American theaters too… (flinches)

    Oh, this comment on that Mutant Chronicles trailer just popped up. You’ll like the last line.

    “I saw this at the Toronto After Dark Film Festival – it wasn’t worth it.

    I went in ready for full-on Perlman-led camp, Thomas Jane tough-guy wisecracking mayhem, and Malkovich being… well, Malkovich. Hell, it has Devon Aoki with a sword, how can it be bad?

    I was sorely disappointed. Perlman was fine, Jane was generic, and overall it tried to do too many things It’s a religious film about faith, it’s a sci-fi film about mutants and aliens, it’s a war film, a steampunk piece, a quest… and it is all rushed. At one point they just give up and seem to skip a large part of the plot because they were running out of time/money (I assume… that or terrible editing). It’s as if they meant it to be a 2 or 3 part mini-series and then decided to skip the middle section to make it fit in a 2 hour timeframe. The pieces just don’t fit together.

    There were moments of campy fun and cliches done humourously, but on the whole, it took itself too seriously to be campy, but was too campy to be taken seriously. This is what happens when you base movies on table-top RPGs – it feels like a GM is writing the script.

    Now, Laser Ghosts 2: Return to Laser Cove, which preceded it, THAT was a campy bunch of hilarity.”

    Yay Underworld TV series…just finished the third…I didn’t want to, I was asked to see it with someone…bleck.

    A Preacher movie? Man, I haven’t a Preacher comic in a decade and a half, brings back memories…filthy filthy memories.

    so, in that “at length” discussion of his motivations, does Rob Zombie just say the words “Money and Bullshit” over and over and over again for ten minutes straight?

    Oh boy, halloween 2 and TV Underworld?

    I went and saw Outlander, though. Pretty spiffy, it was like The 13th Warrior with space dragons and stuff.
