*sigh* Where do I begin?


First off, let me start by saying that Repo! The Genetic Opera is one of my all-time favorite movies. This... this is painful to look at. I heard the concept for this movie. I sighed, but I wanted to give it a chance anyway. Then I saw the trailer. Oh my god this movie is going to blow. They took the concept of Repo! and blended it together with Minority Report and a buddy-cop movie. Why? Sweet mother of Christ, why?


And don't tell me, "But Necro, Repo Men can't be a rip-off of Repo! The Genetic Opera. Repo Men is based on a book." Yeah, a book that was published last year. Whereas Repo! is based on a stage play that was written four years ago. I still call rip-off!

It's times like this when Hollywood makes me sick to my stomach and I, yet again, lose faith in humanity.

The other day I heard about a videogame-related movie coming out called Gamer. Immediately, I laughed my ass off. I thought to myself, "Oh my God! That is the dumbest idea ever!" Seriously, a movie called Gamer? I swear to God, Hollywood is running out of ideas. There's no way in Hell that movie could be any good. Does the movie industry think we're a bunch of idiots or something? I mean, come on...
