Favorite death?

Favorite joke?

Favorite reveal?

Favorite nod to another horror flick?

What did you come away from it thinking about?

What sealed the deal for you? what was the point where you either loved it, hated it or decided it was somewhere in between?

Favorite death? --- I didn't think that the deaths were overly spectacular, but I did find Kurt's (Chris Hemsworth) to be amusing. I knew from his speech about getting the Police that something wasn't going to go right for him, but I also forgot about what happened to the bird earlier in the movie.:p .... actually, can I count the 3rd act as my favorite death scene?

Favorite joke? --- Jesus... there was a lot of good humor in the movie.... I liked the "Speaker phone" scene a lot (Hell, most of the scene's with Richard Jenkins and Bradley Whitford were fucking hilarious) ... I also liked Marty's lines of "Oh my god! .... I'm on a reality T.V. show!... my parents are going to think I'm such a burn out" and "I had to dismember him with a trowel... so what have you been up to?"

Favorite reveal? --- 3rd act house of horrors.

Favorite nod to another horror flick? --- Hellraiser.

What did you come away from it thinking about? --- The brilliance of the story and how it disected standard horror film formula

What sealed the deal for you? what was the point where you either loved it, hated it or decided it was somewhere in between? --- A few points: 1) When Marty was trying to talk to Dana about how things felt weird, most noticably is how Kurt and Jules were not acting their nomal selves (Kurt acting like a Alpha Male, when he's a sociology major and Jules acting like a "Celebutard" with all of her bimbo-ish actions 2) Kurt declaring that they need to stick together... followed by the annoyed reaction to Bradley Whitford's character, and then Richard Jenkins releasing the gas that causes Kurt to change his mind and suggest that they split up 3) the "Me... virgin?" followed by Sigorney Weavers responce.... It all brought it together and I loved the idea that these characters were all not typical horror character types, but were "influenced" to act as those character types and to make the stupid decisions that horror characters make... between those moments and the 3rd act, I was very impressed.


yes!  :p


you laid out a lot of what I loved about the movie.  :thumb

 

*spoilers**spoilers**spoilers**spoilers**spoilers**spoilers**spoilers**spoilers**spoilers**spoilers**spoilers**spoilers**spoilers**spoilers**spoilers**spoilers**spoilers**spoilers**spoilers**spoilers**spoilers**spoilers*

 

Now, for those who have seen the movie, I have a question for you:

I'm trying to figure out the whole "Gods" thing and how it relates to the satire element regarding horror formula... do you think...

1) It was a metaphor; poking fun of the bullshit "Moral" theme that has plagued horror films (You know, the justification that teenage horror characters die because of their sins... in a certain order, because the "Gods demand it" and the fate of the world depends on it

or

2) The gods were a metaphor for the horror audience/fans that demands for such formula... in a way making fun that if a movie breaks the formula and tries to do something different "It's the end of the world" (* what made me think of this was my 2nd viewing of the movie today, and hearing another person in the theater complain about how stupid the movie was... simply because it wasn't what she was expecting... something mentioned multiple times during the scenes with the company guys*)

or

3)I'm hammered right now and don't know what I'm talking about.

you made complete sentences with little to no typos..you aren't that hammered. :p


I can see either/or working with it.


But honestly, I took it as  being straight forward, "this is what goes on in a horror film, it isn't all blood and guts without substance, there's a purpose behind every action and decision and a reason for it going the way it goes."  A kind of wizard of OZ, look behind the curtain take on it.


But of your choices I'm leaning more toward the second as being the intent.  Horror fans are the gods and demand certain elements in the film in order to enjoy it, not having those elements is the end of the intended cash cow...err franchise...and will doom that world.

I didn't go to work, went at 1:40pm on Friday, spent $6.50 and I didn't like it!

the merman should have been the best but it was real let down

"we have to work with what we have."  Really!

Sigourney Weaver would have been a surprise if you didn't here her voice over the PA earlier in the film

Hellraiser I guess most obvious. I wish all the scenes with the monsters were slowed down.

was this a horror movie? people were killed and there were monsters. I didnt think it was that funny or scary. I didn't care about the characters (liked the guy at the gas station his scene was the most tense )

I thought that was pretty good, until I saw it was made for 45 million. Surprised they green-lit that much dough to be thrown down on it.

the budget was 30 million, maybe 45 with marketing and such, but it should make that back between overseas and dvd and such.

The article I read said MGM spent 45 before Lionsgate even purchased the distribution rights.

2) The gods were a metaphor for the horror audience/fans that demands for such formula... in a way making fun that if a movie breaks the formula and tries to do something different "It's the end of the world" (* what made me think of this was my 2nd viewing of the movie today, and hearing another person in the theater complain about how stupid the movie was... simply because it wasn't what she was expecting... something mentioned multiple times during the scenes with the company guys*)



if the gods are meant to be the horror audience/fans, do you take it to be a jab? like deviation from the standard formula will cause the death of a film/franchise? a "try something different and no one will give it a chance" type of thing?

IMDb said 30 million, as did the main stars.

Favorite death?

Favorite joke?

Favorite reveal?

Favorite nod to another horror flick?

What did you come away from it thinking about?

What sealed the deal for you? what was the point where you either loved it, hated it or decided it was somewhere in between?


Favorite Death: There were so many, I enjoyed most if not all of the Monster kills. I loved the Scarecrow scene and the Seaman joke death, but I have to say the Unicorn.

Favorite Joke:

"I picked zombies."
"Yes, but this is Zombie Redneck Torture Family, it's like an Elephant and an Elephant Seal."

Favorite Reveal: Weaver. At least they did a better job at keeping it secret compared to how they did in "Paul"

Favortie Nod: Honestly, I liked the nod to "Cube" I don't think anybody else would have noticed that. I even got a kick out of the Tokyo story.

What did you come away from it thinking about?: I wanted to watch it again as soon as it ended. I never have that feeling when I watch a movie, but when the monsters and madmen are on the loose I feel like you could find something new with each viewing since so much is happening at once.

What sealed the deal for you? what was the point where you either loved it, hated it or decided it was somewhere in between?

Now I didn't have the best time watching the film, but it wasn't the movies fault. There was some jackass sitting behind who had the most obnoxious laugh and wouldn't stop talking. I really enjoyed the movie and got most, if not all of the nods to the Horror genre. The first half was just so left field, but I think once the chick made out with the "Moose" head that turned the switch where I knew it was going to be a fun ride and that it was. The ending just made it so much better, I love Horror flicks where they throw every idea into a blender and something obscure is the outcome, like Spookies and Curse Of The Blue Lights. The Drive In I visit just opened for the season and I would love to see this again there. It would be another great viewing experience and hopefully will make up for that stupid laughing guy this go round.

Of course most of us on the boards would get the refrences, i'm just talking about the casual movie viewer. Did you catch the Funny Games title screen nod?

Favorite nod to another horror flick?

What did you come away from it thinking about?

What sealed the deal for you? what was the point where you either loved it, hated it or decided it was somewhere in between?


Favorite Death: There were so many, I enjoyed most if not all of the Monster kills. I loved the Scarecrow scene and the Seaman joke death, but I have to say the Unicorn.

Favorite Joke:

"I picked zombies."
"Yes, but this is Zombie Redneck Torture Family, it's like an Elephant and an Elephant Seal."

Favorite Reveal: Weaver. At least they did a better job at keeping it secret compared to how they did in "Paul"

Favortie Nod: Honestly, I liked the nod to "Cube" I don't think anybody else would have noticed that. I even got a kick out of the Tokyo story.

What did you come away from it thinking about?: I wanted to watch it again as soon as it ended. I never have that feeling when I watch a movie, but when the monsters and madmen are on the loose I feel like you could find something new with each viewing since so much is happening at once.

What sealed the deal for you? what was the point where you either loved it, hated it or decided it was somewhere in between?

Now I didn't have the best time watching the film, but it wasn't the movies fault. There was some jackass sitting behind who had the most obnoxious laugh and wouldn't stop talking. I really enjoyed the movie and got most, if not all of the nods to the Horror genre. The first half was just so left field, but I think once the chick made out with the "Moose" head that turned the switch where I knew it was going to be a fun ride and that it was. The ending just made it so much better, I love Horror flicks where they throw every idea into a blender and something obscure is the outcome, like Spookies and Curse Of The Blue Lights. The Drive In I visit just opened for the season and I would love to see this again there. It would be another great viewing experience and hopefully will make up for that stupid laughing guy this go round.


I'm glad you liked it but I noticed the cube nod too!  :pIt was also my favorite nod to another horror flick.


Of course most of us on the boards would get the refrences, i'm just talking about the casual movie viewer. Did you catch the Funny Games title screen nod?


I don't think I've seen Funny Games so, no.  :p  I'm anxious for it to come to DVD so I can watch it and get more of the nods I missed the first two times.

Same here.

I would like to pause it on the bet board and see all the names that were listed. I recall a few, like Sexy Witches and I think one was just "Kevin."

I thought the Ballerina Dentata character was pretty cool.


the scarecrows were awesome, the Buckners were really cool, I liked the people in the white blank masks (one of them had blonde pigtails), The evil clown, there were a lot of really cool monsters.

The  ballerina dentata was cool looking. I liked the ghost. The werewolf was a nice old school nod.  I liked the Giant octopus thing that grabs the girl scientist towards the end.


I'm anxious to get to freeze frame through the cube area so I can get a good solid look at all of them.  That whole last act was so chaotic it was hard to really concentrate on everything that was happening enough to really appreciate all of the characters.
