some of the songs are corny as hell but you have to admit that David Hess has a sweet singing voice and that some of the songs are actually kind of beautiful. 'waiting for the rain', 'now you're all alone' and 'promised land' are my favorite songs out of the entire soundtrack and i listen to them all the time.
You know that Hess wrote and performed the Elvis Song All shook up before Presley made it famous?
My mind was blown when I heard that
UGH. The cops are the absolute worst. They're like the gargoyles from The Hunchback of Notre Dame or Timon and Pumbaa (LUAU!).
Hey now, don't be talking shit about Timon and Pumbaa. They were necessary, because we needed SOMETHING to lighten up the movie after the "Mufasa dies" scene.
And really, we needed someone to defeat the comic relief villain sidekicks.
Also, Nathan Lane is the man.
They should re-edit this movie by cutting out the weird tone ruining moments and just leave the intense scenes, would make the movie much more serious and genuinely decent.
Only question i have for this review is where the did Brad pull out a cigarette during the naked dancing...?
Magic? The REAL question is how Ebert can slam I Spit on Your Grave yet praise this?! They're not that different, minus the, *ahem*, "comedy". The killers are funny though, especially Hess. Damn I miss him!
Such a shizo film...
most of the tough stuff is REALLY tough to watch... especially when the girl walks into the water ans gets shot.
But these comedyscenes really ruin it. A friend of my re-edited it and cut out the cops for the most of it... almost likes that phantom manece version without Jarjar
RIP, Wes Craven
I checked this movies page on Rotten Tomatoes, and it's now rated 59%, which does NOT qualify as a Certified Fresh.
2:39- As opposed to showering with clothes on?
I looked it up on Google, and peeping tomism is an actual thing.
I never thought there exists a rape revenge movie where the intense moments end with the start of happy themed scenes of comedic scenes, but here you go. Wes Craven was such a genius.
Oh, and thank for being naked out on the front porch again. I thought I got the one from Nudist Colony of the Dead power drilled out of my head.
14:21- Huh, not only does the road lead to nowhere, it also tells you if a chicken truck is coming your way.
I'm just about as shocked as you are that Roger Ebert gave this movie 3 1/2 stars.
Once again, I'm left wonder, what were they thinking? Seriously? Also, it looks to me like, at one point, the road has a target drawn on it. WHY?
To rhetorically answer your last question: ever heard of a "bear in the air"?
No. Not really.
"Piss your pants."
Pants to be darkened!
Maybe the German cut was just the removal of all the crap. Maybe they pulled a Godfrey Ho and made two movies with the two different tones. One a rape-revenge, the other a goofy cop comedy!
Some of the older archived videos of 2009 were brought over from the youtube account before thecinemasnob.com was created, so please forgive the lesser video quality of such as some did not transfer well.
