I can't wait to see Bubba Ho-Tep. I'm so glad it is getting released. Shame I live in Scotland and will probably have to wait for the DVD.

Sixteen tongues isn't just shock, it's good, challenging sci-fi. Even now, very few writers will consider what would happen to human society if a radical redesign of female human sexuality happened, yet that's what happened to make us human in the first place: wider hips, hidden labia, constant sexual cycles instead of oestrus. Even menopause is part of our physical evolution. The idea that females might continue to evolve(or be engineered) for even more communication through sexuality (that's why they lost their body hair) is solid stuff. I'm not surprised it took a very fringe-type person to ask such questions. We humans are already smart enough; the trouble is, we're not sexually attractive enough. Yet.

A recommendation to prospective "Firstie Wannabes": post an actual comment. Then, if you're first, you can always go back later and say so. Which I now will not do.

i too saw this flick and thought it was leagues ahead of SIXTH SENSE. what was interesting was the "explanation" of ghosts, not as a spiritual phenomenon, but as a psychological phenomenon. there is a psychic space in our minds created for the existence of "ghosts", and when repressed memories emerge, they sometimes take the form of ghosts because of our pre-disposition to "believe" in ghosts. ***THIS is creepy when you think about it, because it means ghosts are real, in a sense. and it perhaps explains, Mori, why Cheung took his life.... he left a suicide note. does anyone know what it said????

The main problem with this film is that it relies so much on already established backstory and characterizations from the various games (as well as the OAVs, which are available in the US). It's supposed to take place between Sakura Wars 3 and 4 (both Dreamcast games), and ties some loose ends from the third game and leads into the fourth game. Because it's a movie based on a popular franchise, it assumes you already know the characters and so doesn't bother to do as much with them as it could. It's a shame, because the Sakura Wars characters are so incredibly likeable in their video game incarnations. As someone who's played the games, though, I am eagerly looking forward to the US DVD release.

Yet again we are teased with news of screenings of "Bubba Ho-tep." But we still have no news of a release date for this epic!!! When will some distributor come to its senses and snap this bad boy up? I've been hearing about it for ages and am **very** interested in seeing it. (In fact, I'd far rather see "Bubba Ho-Tep" than waste my moolah on the typical mega-budget,lame-brained Hollywood blockbusters being hyped lately.) Somebody, *any*body bring this to a screen near me soon, dammit!!!
