I was expecting to find it on Cinemageddon, but no dice! I'll definitely keep an eye out for it...

Hopefully it will be available in digital format soon.

Rufflesack wrote:Better and worse than expected. Unfortunately, it's worse in all the areas that matter, and it excels somewhat only in special effects. I knew something was terribly wrong when I caught myself thinking things like "I really wish I was watching Transformers 3" and "at least Transformers had heart". Transformers really doesn't have any heart. The existence of this film is as disturbing after having seen it as ever, even though it does a few things right. Kitsch isn't terrible.

Ample effort spent on fleshing out these characters instead of packing the celluloid with cupcake-baking montages (yes, plural)? No. Oh well, at least it featured a pair of rabid raccoons and a, shall we say, "mature" Wilson Phillips...or was it a pair of mature raccoons and a rabid Wilson Phillips...? Too...drunk... to....tell...

Buscemi is awesome, though!

But he shoots one with a makeshift bow made out a fallen branch and a strand of woolly mammoth hair, right? No? Hides in a foxhole, waiting for one to come along before jumping out at the last minute and piercing its throat with a pine cone? No? Ruptures one's gut with a shotgun shell-tipped spear before decapitating it and cooking the body over a fire? Yes? Then, I believe the appropriate reaction is "fuck, yeah."
Kojiless wrote:Oh, how I wanted to love this. When I first saw the trailer, I immediately went onto eBay, purchased a Cabbage Patch KId, and upon its arrival, tore the head off in a frenzied fit of unadulterated glee. What could be more awesome than a movie that took all of my childhood action movie heroes and packaged them in one epic jack-in-the-box? Unfortunately, a few turns of the crank and a couple out-of-tune clunks later, the only thing that popped out was a besotted, ass-fondling Mickey Rourke.

Kojiless wrote:I think I've figured it out. Luc Besson has three ideas. When he writes a screenplay, He takes those ideas, puts them into an empty Kleenex box and pulls out two. He then flips a Princess Diana commemorative coin onto which he's written 'future' and 'present.' Finally, he logs into Words With Friends to desperately search for an actress whose name will score him the most points on a triple word tile.
Kojiless wrote:Wow. Can actors be any less uninspired? The tension in this movie was so non-existant, I thought I was watching a lecture on the importance of oats in a horse's diet. (Yeah, that analogy made about as much sense as the movie did)

A mindfuck of near-unrivaled intensity and one of the greatest thrillers of all time. Intertextual references to gialli and slashers. Satire of fandom and celebrity culture. Metatextual exploration of the boundaries between diegetic world, the fiction in that world and character psychoses. We share Mima's anguish and are thrown with her into the downward spiral of an ever-twisting story which breeds 'Mulholland Dr.' and 'Black Swan', albeit prefiguring both. Superbly directed. Kon was a genius.
