The Devil's Rejects

Is a fucking brilliant movie :) Rob Zombie has an incredible eye and can capture images that are just perfect. The colors, textures are carnal, you can almost smell the rooms, the characters, their clothes. You just know they stink. Brutal, deliberate, sensless violence. It's ironic, vulgar, funny, twisted and highly entertaining. He took the best from House of 1000 corpses and just made a perfect sequel. Zombie cut out the Dr Satan scenes from the final product though, but put them on the DVD as extras.

Some movies I want to see...
Hostel. I saw the trailer and it reminded me of Saw. But it still looks interesting.
Grandma's boy... I know I know, but I don't care, I'm sure it will be hilarious.
The fountain with Hugh Jackman. I'm intrigued. I don't care for love stories, but the treatment looks original.
The dying gaul. I loved Lucas' Longtime Companion. I was like 20 when I saw it, it was my introdution to the gay world. Although it came out a couple of years before Longtime companion, I saw Torch song trilogy after. Both films are excellent.
The Chumscrubber... yeah I know another teenage suburbian angst themed independant. But having seen the trailer, I have faith in it. I don't know where it will show around here though, thanks to the megaplexes.
Match Point by Wood Allen. such a different setting... London! Fascinating interview in Vanity Fair with him by the way.
And also... Maurice Richard, Capote, Syriana, King Kong, The Libertine, Va vis et deviens, Le promeneur du Champs de Mars, Trop de volume.
