I saw this a few weeks ago and looks cheesy as hell...
Hate it already!!
The only movie musicals I can stand are:
-Labyrinth (which isn't exactly a musical but close)
-Nightmare Before Christmas (Awesome!!!)
-Any Muppet movie!! :rock

Well, as it seems I am the only boardie here that's managed to see it (or at least admit it) I thought I would put in my two-cents. I have seen it twice now, once driving from Houston to Austin to see it and a second time when they brought it throught Houston as part of their Roadshow where I got to meet director Darren Lynn Bousman and writer/star Terrance Zdunich (both were really cool BTW).

This is definitely a movie for the Rocky Horror crowd, or at least people who have a bizarre sense of asthetic. The storyline is simple and the movie movies along briskly. The music is indeed very much like stage-show types of songs, but with a slightly more industrial beat. There are some songs that could be played straight out on the radio, operatic pieces and a lot of showtune "story telling" songs. The design and costume are very goth/bondage fixated and everyone in the movie seems to be having fun and giving their all. The gore is pretty well done, though a bit sparse. As for the cast, Paris is Paris, but the role doesn't really ask her to be anything else but a spoiled princess waiting to take over daddy's throne, so not much of a stretch there. Anthony Stewart Head is awesome as the repo man... He is great at switching between the concerned caring father and the gravelly voiced vicious killer. Bill Mosely and Ogre are great as bickering siblings LUigi and Pavi, though they could have been in the movie more. Sarah Brightmans character is as entrancing to look at as she is to listen to. All in all I enjoyed the movie very much. It is offbeat and clever, though not overly original. I would watch this between Rocky Horror and Phantom of the Paradise. One thing about the casting that the director touched on is that since the movie itself was something that mde you say WTF? He wanted the casting to be the same way... Repo: starring Sarah Brightman, Paris Hilton and Nivek Ogre? That sort of thing. For his part, I think he did a good job.

P.S. the DVD comes out on January 20th. Right now deleted scenes will only be available on the Blu-Ray, but the director said at the Q&A that he will release them online. Also, if the DVD sales are strong enough, he may be able to go back to complete a few scenes that were unfinished and release a directors cut down the road.

Awesome, wasn't able to be close enough to any of the places they were showing so I was wondering when it would be on DVD, hopefully it sells a lot, the soundtrack is great.

I know this movie was filmed here in Toronto,Canada because i know a couple women that were in it(and the stage production as well). I can't say i am a fan of it though..just like i can't stand Hedwig and the Angry Inch, RENT etc.

I saw it awhile ago and was disappointed. The story felt rushed along and the movie a bit too short. The songs were lacking and too many comic book page transitions.

If you expected a straight-out horror film you will be disappointed. This is a rock opera to and through. If you don't like musicals, it's not for you. It has shot up the list of my favorite musicals to be tied with The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Followed closely by Hedwig and the Angry Inch.

RENT I cannot stand. The only classical Broadway show I really like is The Phantom of the Opera but the movie of it sucked. Christine was annoying and Gerard Butler can't sing to save his life. Well, I really liked Wicked and Chicago too.

Trivia: Sarah Brightman (Blind Mag) originated the role of Christine in the first play back in the 80s. That is her on the original cast recording album of Phantom.

I really liked this.

But again, like many others, i love musicals. I think this is right up there with Hedwig and Rocky. And I loved the gore of it too. Very fun! And Sarah Brightman was amazing.

I can see why some people wouldn't like it. But yeah, i thought it was great.

Too over dramatic combined with ultra honkey cheeseness, with a sprinkle of homosexuality..just not my type of thing,though they are well done for what they are. I enjoyed Les Misérables and Sweeney Todd though also..just not Rocky,Hedwig and especially Rent.

And! for the record, i have nothing against gay culture at all...just its not my thing in select movies.

Awwww, I quite liked Gerard Butler as Erik. He was much better than I expected him to be. Emmy Rossum was an ok Christine. I've always disliked the characters of Christine and Raoul, so it doesn't matter how good a singer or actor is, I just will never care for the entire package (though I can appreciate the talent of course).

As for 'Repo: The Genetic Opera'. I quite enjoyed it. It ranks up there below 'The Rocky Horror Picture Show' for me. They both have that cooky, out-of-this-world story/concept going on and I liked it. I could have done without Paris Hilton though...bleh.

I get what you mean. Sweeney Todd is a favorite of mine. Saw it performed by a high school once, it was actually just as good as the film version, with better singing, lol.

Waaaay off topic, but CAhobbit, that South Park House Stark sig of yours just made me spit out my coffee. A Song of Ice and Fire for the mf'n WIN!!! Brilliant!

And in an attempt to stay on topic... umm, I haven't seen this film yet, but any movie starring Skinny Puppy's Ogre gets high marks from me. I'll get around to this one some time.

Ha! Great isn't it? Someone created a whole slew of South Park-esque ASOIAF families (Targaryen, Greyjoy, etc) and I had to snatch them for use, ha! Which reminds me I need to switch that out with a new one.

Well what were you referring to when you asked how much time I had? Last you spoke to me you were giving me a hard time about how emotional I was over it.


I freaking love this movie. I've watched it every single day since I bought it.

I'm sorry I just didn't appreciate Gerard Butler's singing. Actually the girl who played Christine sang rather well but she just annoyed me for some reason. Sarah Brightman originated that role and she owned.

As for Rocky Horror and Hedwig, I maintain that people who are uncomfortable around homosexuality have issues with their own masculinity. It's not as though Frank N. Furter or Hedwig are hitting on YOU. Now that would be understandable, if a gay person was trying to come onto you. But they're just fun movies with great music and in Hedwig's case, a very moving story, and in RHPS's, just funny camp.

No, I was messing with you because you said something funny. "I will post more when I have more time." So...we were just messing with you, just like we do with each other around here. I have no idea where Cancer comes from...because nothing we were discussing had anything to do with Cancer, or death, or how much time you have left on this earth...but your thread.

Ok, now you are going offside! *blows whistle*..I am very comfortable thanks, and i am from a city that hold the largest Gay Parade festival in the world( had tons of gay culture exsposure). I have been hit on by gay men quite a few times and you know what?, i have never had someone say such rude sexual comments to me initially when wanting to get to know me,never had a woman be so rude to me ever,the gay men go straight to the sex talk.Most of my friends who have gay friends(men mostly) all they want is drama and talk openly about their sexuality amongst others in public, out loud!..yes that sounds like a stereotype but, remember these movies we are talking about are "over dramatic" and i don't want to watch some guy give another guy felatio let alone in a musical/drama movie. Thats just my preference..i am not Homophobic, i am not scared of them! lol!. I usually tend to get along more with gay women, IMO/experience they are less overly flamboyant and anoying,more mature.

Remember, i still gave these movies i dislike, some credit initially in my last post.
