the hills have eyes

what was i thinking?

jason and i went to see the hills have eyes tonight when really what we should have done was eat off our own arms. but i jest. maybe just moo cow's ear.

we saw it at the contra costa cinemas across from nob hill. which i haven't been to at night since i was in high school. it's literally teeming with young punks after the sun goes down. one kid came into our theatre, went immediately to the back door and let in 6 of his friends. this was like 10 minutes into the movie too. so impressive all around.

most amusing moment: when emilie de raven has a pillow fight with one of the mutants trying to rape her.

most disgusting amusing moment(s): when one of the mutants bites off the head of a lovebird and squishes the blood out of it into his mouth tied with when the same mutant drinks breast milk from vinessa shaw. oral fixation much?

interestingly, all those moments happened within a 5 minute time frame.

what this movie is trying to say: the dividing line between pacifism and murder is thin. beauty dies, but the beast lives. little red riding hood kills herself at the same time that she kills the wolf. all of which add up to what? innocence is dead and we're all to blame.

what this movie really says: i am crap. crap crap crappity crap.

The movie may have stunk, but I'm glad to see that "mutated by radiation" is making a come-back in mainstream movies.

*Genetically modified* spider. Pfff...

I actually should be more fair to this movie: I thought at least half of it was really good. It just happens to be attached to the rest of the movie, which it can't really be blamed for.

totaly craaap poor story hero's are stupid specially the one with the glasses he's just funny even those beasts where so easy killed ,,,, so few events i guess this movie could fairly be 45 minutes weak ending just the three in the desert without even a weapon and nobody could reach them that's shit that mean's they'll just get killed and it's over no body will even know and a very stupid ending............
