People who talk, chat on phone, eat popcorn or take a baby to the cinema should to be dragged outside and shot! A cinema facist I may be, but at least I'll be able to enjoy the fucking film! If you are one of the above then I hate you!
Sept. 1, 2005, 4:09 a.m. CST
I don't even like popcorn, but people eating it doesn't bother me. You must be some kind of asshole.
Sept. 1, 2005, 4:19 a.m. CST
of course I am an asshole! I do admire how you want to save the popcorn guy but not the woman and child from a gun shot.

...After hearing this mentioned on AICN recently, I thought I'd get the dvd. WOW - what a film Repo Man is!! I was disappointed at the lack of extras on the DVD, and I'm sure a few scenes had been removed or altered, although I hadn't seen the movie in a long time. Anyway - I think this movie rocks, and it's clearly been one of Tarantino's many influences - the character of Lite was straight out of Pulp Fiction!! By the way - has there been a competitio to win that poster? Because I want it, and I want it bad.....

What the Hell has happened to Tracey Walter anyhow? That man used to show up in almost everything cool for years, and now I haven't hardly seen him in anything (much less anything good) for a few years now. Massively under rated and under used actor. And double that for Harry Dean Stanton. ************************************************************************** A lotta people don't realize what's really going on, they view life as a buncha unconnected incidents 'n things. They don't realize that there's this, like, lattice 'a coincidence that lays on toppa everything. Give you an example, show you what I mean...suppose you're thinkin about a plate 'a shrimp. Suddenly someone'll say, like, "plate", or "shrimp", or "plate 'a shrimp" out of the blue, no explanation. No point in lookin for one, either. It's all part of a cosmic unconciousness...and John Wayne was a fag.

All I really want is the "Lorna Dunes" scene from the TV version. Is that too much to ask?

i'm a native Angelino and i realized I should've gone to the repo man screening. fuck!

Most quotable movie ever? Could be...

I was inspired to reserve a copy from my local library. I probably haven't seen the film since the mid-80's.

I wonder for how many people that will be the last thing they see before being hacked to death. That kid is on a collision course with a Hannibal Lecter-like jail cell. He should be sent to New Orleans with the rest of the zombie hoards...cause Dawn of the Dead is happening for real down there. Christ!

...when my band was support for Strummer on the 'Rock Against the Rich' Tour back in 1988. As a matter of fact it was over two days in Doncaster and Sheffield. Alex joined us in Sheff and we just talked about films/Pogues/Clash all night. Zander was the guitarist in Joe's band after the Circle Jerks split but I'm sure you know him better as 'Kevin' in Repo Man. If there is a heaven I can't wait to see Joe again.

Damn! I had to get up for work, so I couldn't make it up from San Diego. I've seen Repo Man about 500 times, and would have loved to have been there. Sounded like fun!
Sept. 1, 2005, 4:32 p.m. CST
Somehow that movie just doesn't seem to be in the same league as the other movies on this trip. We're talking that 80s movie with Emilio Estavez? No way you can group that in with North by Northwest, or even Goonies for that matter! That's a really cool picture of the ankle biter though.
Sept. 1, 2005, 6:42 p.m. CST
Nobody listened though. In fact, as usual, most everyone had no idea what the fuck I was even talking about. Ah the fun of living surrounded by nothing but the culturally bankrupt cookie cutter popcorn zombie crowd...

And it is indeed the best version. "I think you killed him, Lite!!"........... "What if I did? " Frickin superb movie!! Definitely the most quotable movie ever, as DocPazuzu points out. Here's some more gold: "Tense situations, kid. You get into five or six of 'em a day, it don't mean shit anymore. I mean, I've seen men stabbed, didn't mean shit to me. I've seen guns, guns too, they don't mean shit. But that's when you gotta watch yourself." ...... "A lot o' people don't realize what's really going on. They view life as a bunch o' unconnected incidents 'n things. They don't realize that there's this, like, lattice o' coincidence that lays on top o' everything. Give you an example; show you what I mean: suppose you're thinkin' about a plate o' shrimp. Suddenly someone'll say, like, plate, or shrimp, or plate o' shrimp out of the blue, no explanation. No point in lookin' for one, either. It's all part of a cosmic unconciousness." Otto responds "You do a lot of acid, Miller, back in the hippie days?" .......... Bud: "Credit is a sacred trust, it's what our free society is founded on. Do you think they give a damn about their bills in Russia? I said, do you think they give a damn about their bills in Russia?" Otto: "They don't pay bills in Russia, it's all free." ........ "It happens sometimes. People just explode. Natural causes"

no question, an essential american film, even if it was made by some know-it-all brit. he thinks i'll kill him. and i would, too -- i'll kill any, well, it has been a few years since i saw it last. and what of cox' subsequent work, other than _s&n_? i sure did not dig on _highway patrolman_ but i must say, i consider _the winner_ extremely underrated. co-produced and featuring the luscious ms. de mornay, the self-absorbed v. d'onofrio and the ALWAYS underrated delroy lindo, it isn't perfect but i enjoyed it far more than any critic gave me any reason to suspect i would. what, you, too??

To be fair, REPO MAN is one of those films that had a lengthy run of midnight screenings, much like ROCKY HORROR and ROCK AND ROLL HIGH SCHOOL. Talking at the screen was not only tolerated but encouraged at these things. That's not to say this guy wasn't an annoying prick, but this film, moreso than the others, contributed to this behavior.

"the culturally bankrupt cookie cutter popcorn zombie crowd"...cool name for a band.
Sept. 2, 2005, 10:29 p.m. CST
I'm one of those rare people who actually LOVES "Rocky Horror Picture Show" for itself... and not necessarily for the "live theatre" aspect of its midnight showings. I enjoy the movie very much when I see it in the privacy of my own home... on DVD... a lot of times during a midnight screening I wind up wishing people would shut the hell up during my favourite parts...
