    hostel II

    by kahootz

    I heard the main characters are girls in this one. Does that mean the hostel they stay in is overrun with nubile men? If so....I'll skip this one.

    A traveler runs into a trio from the new Anderson film "THE DARJEELING LIMITED". Here is the link: http://jessechappelle.blogspot.com/2006/12/what-you-find-in- rajasthan.html To have the link work you'll have to delete the spaces in the link.

    Hostel was lame.

    Roth is lame.

    they already fixed it, cornjob

    by theBigE

    don't you hate that? I thought this flick was coming out next month - surprised they're going to summer.

    gee wizz, it comes out on my Birthday...

    by Datascream

    ...what a great way to celebrate.

  • Dec. 12, 2006, 8:25 p.m. CST

    No, I'm not doing any of that shit, Quint.

    by team america

    Instead I will walk in the opposite direction of the theatre for exactly one hour, after having burned it to the ground. Not just because of this specific film, mind you, but more in lamentation of the state of film itself...

    Gore

    by Thunderpants

    I'm getting so sick of idiots making horror movies that rely solely on gore. Come on...did Hostel or any of the Saw movies really have any scary moments? Horror does NOT alone = gore.

    Shit, Too.

    People that say something sucks with no backup statemen

    by MetiphisLabs

    For your opinion to be valid you need to add cohesive observations. There is also a big difference between something sucking and YOU not liking it much. Lets all grow up a bit, hmm?

    What I liked about HOSTEL 1...

    by Leafy McPlantsalot

    What I liked about the first Hostel was that it felt very much like a movie my dumb lazy college friends would make if given several million dollars to blow...oh wait, no, that's what I hate about the first Hostel.

    The Hostel Series?

    by BankyFan

    I loved the first one (that's right, I said loved), but really, how much life could this series possibly have within it? It's contingent on being about a bunch of brainless shits who you wouldn't want to share a cab with. Once you've switched genders, what is there left to do?

  • Dec. 12, 2006, 10:26 p.m. CST

    Eh, Hostel is best as just one movie....

    by GibsonUSA Returns

    Making a sequel is overkill. The first movie freaked me out, but there's no need to make another one. It's more of a "one movie" concept....a bunch of tourists getting pwned. Doing it again would be lame, even with new ideas.

    Torture porn is the worst trend in horror history

    by TallBoy66

    Christ, give me back the wink and nod late 90s slasher movies back, please. Heck, I'd even take another gult of Japanese horror remakes. Torture porn is sadistic bullshit, fuck this crap.

    "Shit, Pure, shit"...Eli's mother

    by FilmFanatik

    I loved Cabin Fever. I thought it was incredbily original. There is no real antagonist in the film. It relies mainly on the paranoia and stupidity of it's characters. Hostel on the other hand, is just another modern-day horror flick. Lotsa chicks and a horrible plot. Not excited at all about this one.

    Torture Porn/Grindhouse Controversy

    by Zoolander

    I kinda agree Tallboy66. <p>Although I appreciate there are some auteurs out there making some good movies in this revival of the 70's grindhouse films, the genre is wearisome in it's cruelty.</p><p>There have been some well-made films like Wolf Creek, Texas Chainsaw (Jessica Biel, nuff said!), High Tension, Devil's Rejects, Hill Have Eyes, etc. My one friend just loves Hostel.</p><p>But I prefer true scare movies, I guess. Monster movies and such. I loved the recent Dawn of the Dead remake and 28 Days Later, but also loved Dog Soldiers, The Descent and Dagon.</p><p>Give me a good vampire or werewolf movie with the same style and skill some of these new slashers are getting.

    POTC: the only theatrically released torture porn.

    by Some Dude

    All the horror films being incorrecly tagged as torture porn actually had plots and were about characters trying to escape villainy, with varying degrees of success and so they do not qualify as any kind of porn. The Passion of the Christ is torture porn, becuase its sole purpose was for an audience to watch someone being tortured to death.

  • Dec. 13, 2006, 4:54 a.m. CST

    some dude

    by Leafy McPlantsalot

    I'm sorry dude but Pirates of the Caribbean was not torture porn. See what i did there? How I switched it up? Eh? Eh?

  • Dec. 13, 2006, 6:16 a.m. CST

    Part 1 was okay...

    by DerLanghaarige

    ...but not good enough that I would wait for the sequel!

    Hostel blew like a poor Cambodian whore ....

    by kinghenryVIII

    earning shillings sucking off Dalmations. Rented the Hills have Eyes remake and that seriously screwed me up - torture porn! The trailer part .... seriously - my girlfriend wanted to see it but I screened it first and told she wouldn't like it - and she's like a dude! (she would have thought I had some playmates chained in a basement somewhere and would have looked "cock eyed" at me ever since). But atleast that had a realistic twat go apeshit and believably seek revenge. The Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake - ugh - bought that on DVD (the one with the metal plate) before seeing it and man did that suck. I couldn't trade that with a one armed gimp boy in El Paso pimpin' widdled wooden penises to tourists! The origonal one - the dinner sceen .... freaked me out for a few days.

    Hostel was sheet because....

    by zufflezipperfish

    ....it failed to show the torture of any UK gap-year students. Especially Media Studies students. Anyways, hope the Ipswich psycho hasn't watched Hostel as they'll blame it for his "activities", the evil tw@ that he is.

    Leafy: classic switcheroo!

    by Some Dude

    Although I found one POTC to be childish and too long, it was better than the other POTC which strangely enough was also childish and too long.

    I saw recently saw Wrong turn and Cabin Fever on RTE 2

    by emeraldboy

    Which has been doing great work in showing indie films on thursday or firday night. Both were Rubbish and I blame Wes Craven.

    They should make a DVD collection

    by Spandau Belly

    of movies that Quentin Tarantino had his name appear on the packaging but had no real involvement in the film.

    Five American dollars says...

    by Childe Roland

    ...that despite the female gender of the protagonists this time out, the hostel will still be populated mostly with nubile Euro-skanks and there will be plenty of experimentla girl-on-girl action both before and after the true nature of the Hostel is discovered. Because that's just the way a guy like Roth rolls. If this hunch is confirmed, I will rent this and purchase copious amounts of beer so I can invite people over to mock it together. Otherwise, this sequel has absolutely no value. And I'd be happy to comment on the many reasons the first one sucked if anyone is genuinely interested in hearing them for the thousandth time...or if anyone honestly doesn't already know them.

  • Dec. 13, 2006, 6:24 p.m. CST

    YEAH! HOSTEL 2!!!!

    by El Cimarron

    ... there were SO many unanswered questions left from part 1!
