  1. Also I think young me was into Aladdin.

     

    As I mentioned on a thread months ago, young me was also attracted to Disney's Robin Hood. After further contemplation, I think my adoration for British accents began with him.

    Seeing as Tuxedo Mask has been brought up and this is a musical thread, are you aware that there has been numerous Sailor Moon musicals here in Japan?

    No. I am now. Brb

  2. Looking at the wiki list of box office bombs, I'd say The Man from U.N.C.L.E. (2015). I enjoyed that movie a fucking tonne and think it didn't get the love it deserved. It made me think "Oh, Henry Cavill AND Armie Hammer can act!"

     

    Definitely not as good as the others, but there were laughs. I rewatched a bit of Spy the other day and that one is so damn funny that I was mainly thinking of it lol.

    Spy is my new go-to movie. Peter Serafinowicz was the greatest, after Melissa McCarthy.

  3. I loved Amber Sweet and I never thought I would ever say this, but honestly I wanted more Paris Hilton.

    It seems like it was a vicious cycle, but they mention in the movie that people are addicted to Zydrate. However, when mentioning Amber's addiction they say she's addicted to the knife, but then of course show her begging for the Zydrate.

     

    So which is it???

    I think it's weirdly both. For whatever reason, people in this society believe they have become addicted to surgery but no one has clued in that they're actually addicted to Zydrate. It's a co-dependant addiction(?) They need surgery to fulfill their emotional/psychological addiction and the zydrate is a physical manifestation/addiction.

     

    That's all I got.

  4. Not sorry for the double post. This live ep is up there with Bloodsport and Secret of the Ooze. The Second Opinion couple are relationship goals. They reminded me, in Secret of the Ooze, when June said "I think I AM married to that kind of man."

     

    "put 'er in a bra" is catchy, but my new go-to insult will be "you have a body of a scallop."

    Body of a scallop crushed me. I cannot stress how much oxygen I lost due to laughter.

    2 questions after listening to this ep:

     

    1: who's tim?

    The man I'm going to marry (if he's not already taken and open to ladies).

     

    So Tim, if you're out there

  5. My C&O would be about the "Mother would be proud" line

     

    The correct interpretation is that Dan Akroyd's mother would be proud that he managed to find a second wife and that she was not only gorgeous but a virgin as well.

     

    I get how you can read it the other way, that Kim's "mother" would be proud she kept her virtue all this time but let's be real, Dan Akroyd's character isn't the type of dude to think about her perspective.

  6. I still marvel at the idea the lady was turning tricks within a month of her first Zydrate dose/surgery combo. Is she that addicted to surgery?

     

    Maximiliano commented on Paris getting the shot in her upper thigh. I was also surprised at this but mainly that her bodyguards allowed the Graverobber to get that close to her. They were pushing him off her when he had her against the wall.

     

    Why does Amber hate Blind Mag so much? As soon as Shilo says the name Amber is angry and looking for the offender. Amber then says something to the effect of "If Blind Mag wasn't in the way I could be that star!" Is that why they go after Blind Mag so much and eventually kill her? When I saw Repo! a couple years ago I don't remember Amber ever expressing an ambition to be a singing star.

    I thought of that 13 year old having a "Welcome to your first surgery special. We'll get you hooked on surgery/zydrate early on and if you can't afford us, we have financing!" Then falls down a rabbit hole of Lady of the Evening-ing.

     

    I think it's because they low-key have a relationship. She's willing to exchange sex for zydrate. So the guards are there, in case there is no zydrate on the table yet. I think getting shot in the thigh is like a foreplay thing to them. Also, so they don't blow out her veins? That part doesn't track as well because I think we can assume it's immediately active as a dermal injection.

     

    She does want to be a singer. She "opens" for Blind Mag at the Genetic Opera and is still half-strung out on zydrate. That's when her face falls off.

    1) Why are some people normal skin tones and some white? The white doesn't seem like they're just pale but like the skin has been bleached. I initially thought maybe the world was dark/in night/scorched sky for most of the time but the effect is very scattershot in the Zydrate Anatomy clip.

     

    2) Is Amber having eye work done as well? At one point shortly after she says "Who did that?" She's looking around but her eyes are closed and there are marks around her eyes like she's recently had surgery.

     

    3) Given the description on how to use "the little glass vial" is shooting someone with a Zydrate gun committing assault with a battery? (OK, I'll show myself out.)

    1. I thought it was because of Shiloh's poisoning, that's why she is pale. The others, I couldn't say.

    2. She just was injected with zydrate, so I figured she was "unfocused" at best. And in the Come and Try My Parts song, it does look like she maybe got her eyelids done.

    3. How dare you. I love it.

  7. the opera audience member that got naked in seconds because she got a kidney implant/transplant so she can drink a lot of alcohol

     

    I believe those were 2 separate women. There was the first woman, while testifying, who said she was an alcoholic and then just bought a new liver (Thanks GeneCo!). The second woman wanted breast implants but couldn't afford it because she was a single mom so GeneCo made her that "pay for display" deal.

    It didn't allow me until I was well over 100 posts (150 I think).

    Well I better get cracking then.

     

    Surprisingly, I didn't hate Paris Hilton's singing in this..

    I'd say she was one of the only ones where their voice actually worked with the songs...

     

    Granted, she wasn't in the movie much. And was only in like 2 songs in the movie?..

    but there is an additional/deleted scene with another song with her featured in it. I don't hate her voice in this one either.

    12/10 agree.

  8. This is giving me flashbacks to when I didn't know how to gif. It still may take me a while, guys and gals. The sad part was at the legal clinic I worked at, my midterm evaluation complimented me on being "technologically savvy".

     

    Edit: The only option it's giving me is to change my display name, so I'm probably not established enough yet with this new account.

  9. Zydrate Anatomy questions:

    1) Video: Is the Cyrillic writing on the addiction group meeting poster just an "appropriation" a la A Clockwork Orange or did it mean something else? (In A Clockwork Orange a lot of Alex's words are Russian or "Russian-ish" like "droogs".)

     

    2) Song: I still don't understand the purpose of Zydrate. Is it a general-purpose anesthetic to make surgeries cheaper (and make back-alley surgeries possible)? When I had a colonoscopy I was knocked out but I wasn't turning tricks a month later. (It was two months later.)

     

    3) Song: Related to #2 - In proper surgeries the anesthesiologist has to do a bunch of calculations to make sure they use the right type and amount of anesthetic. I suppose Zydrate being a one-size-fits-all option just allows GeneCo to profit from the bodies created if the Zydrate winds up killing the patient?

     

    (To be continued)

    I think Cyrillic is used just because it is "stylized". I don't think there was a revolution or anything.

     

    I figured it was a Brand Name drug, with the patent belonging to GeneCo. The stuff Graverobber was taking, due to it being "used", was off-market zydrate. I just assumed it was one-size fits all. It's the future, maybe it's a smart!drug and can metabolize itself in a patient. Problems then arise when people get multiple surgeries (...surgeries).

     

    I never thought about Zydrate actually killing anyone but I've already demonstrated my lack of depth in this movie re: guns and batteries.

  10. I mean I got to the random punk outburst of Alexa Vega singing about being 17 and I just laughed so hard and said "kay I can't handle this anymore tonight"

     

    After I got through the early phase of "Wow, this movie is amazing", cards on the table I usually skip Alexa Vega's parts. Unless it's with Anthony Head. We all must suffer for art sometimes.

     

    Then it got me thinking a bit about Hamilton. What these two musicals have in common is that they are breaking away from the traditional style of music that musicals are done in. As a result you can't just take someone who can sing and plop them into the role. If they're not verse in the style of singing it just throws it off. Is it then the case that these people just weren't right for the style of music in Repo!?

    I would agree 100%. You can't just have any Broadway actor be Thomas Jefferson/Lafayette. It takes an emcee. Same with Angelica Schulyer, like LMM has said that he can't even do Satisfied.

     

    Vega has a good voice, just not for this role. Which is why I feel Paris Hilton kills this performance.

  11. I don't have a lot of comments right now. Hoping to watch this tomorrow night. In the meantime..

     

    1) Apropos of nothing, I keep getting Anthony Head and Anthony Heald confused. (Anthony Heald is the doctor that antagonizes Hannibal Lecter in The Silence of the Lambs

     

    2) Does anyone know why Anthony Stewart Head is credited as such? I'm always interested in the stories behind credited names. (For instance, Michael J. Fox had to come up with a middle initial because there was already a Michael Fox working.) In one thing I read it said Anthony Head mainly goes without the Stewart in British/U.K. productions.

    I don't remember where I got it from but I seem to recall that there already was a Anthony Head in the US Actors Guild, so he added the Stewart,

  12. Ellen, I appreciate your love for this movie and sense of humor. I still hate it with the passion of a thousand suns, but again, it is mostly personal based on people who legit worship this film like it is the greatest thing ever without irony.

     

    (they are Boondock Saints fans too...I imagine there is some crossover there).

    I love movies for what they are, not what they try to be. My only regret is that I'll never hear Jason talk about this movie.
