The Informers (2008)
GOZU posted a topic in Bad Movie Recommendations"The Informers" came and went pretty quickly in 2009, but it's toward the top of my list of favorite guilty pleasure movies. First of all, it's dealing with a very serious topic (the AIDS epidemic in the 1980's), it's based on a Brett Easton Ellis book, and it's got an all star cast (Billy Bob Thorton, Kim Basinger, Mickey Rourke, Winnona Ryder, etc.) doing that "Crash" thing where various seemingly unrelated plotlines converge at the end. But it does not gel at all and what you get is essentially the "Showgirls" of the aughts that's not only set in the 1980's but really goes well out of its way to remind you, at every turn, that it's set in the 80's with the some of the most hilarious on-the-nose music cues ever. It's beautifully shot with beautiful people (not all of whom are great actors) just being generally horrible to each other. It was basically disowned by Ellis, who was mad because they took out his vampire subplot (the vampire by the way was supposed to be played by Brandon Routh). If you have a Netflix account, you can see for yourself right now since it's available on Watch Instantly. With a 13% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, I humbly submit "The Informers."

Live shows at Largo question
cmac94 posted a topic in How Did This Get Made?Hello people of Earth, I just picked up tickets to see HDTGM live at the Largo in August. This is my first time seeing the show live, and my first visit to the Largo. Is there anything I should know about the Largo in advanced? Or any general things I should know before going to a live show? Thanks!
