Repo! The Genetic Opera.
« on: December 25, 2008, 07:42:41 pm »
Have any of you heard of it? It comes out January 20th, I think. It was a limited release, and didn't get much advertisement. The story looks really unique, though, and the characters and music is really addicting!

Graverobber is a man, but other then him, it stars Paris Hilton, who does a very nice job, surprisingly, as well as Alexa Vega, who starred in Spy Kids. I hear it also stars quite a bit of other famous musicians.

My personal favorite song is Zydrate Anatomy : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=otdH3SLNx-s

Here's the trailer! : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xETgGym8cnE

I know! I didn't mind that Paris Hilton starred in this or not, if her acting was good then I don't mind. I don't have much of a problem with her to begin with.

Nichole we should watch it together when it comes out! That or.. find it on the internet. I tried cheating and looking for it once, though. But I couldn't find it.

It's brilliant! I saw it back when Darren and Terrance (Graverobber) came through with it on the Repo! Road Tour, and it is phenomenal! I agree, Paris is in the film and is perfect as Amber Sweet and really brought me to rethink my view of her. After hearing from Darren Lynn Bousman how genuinely nice, professional and easy to work with she was, I really am going to push myself to think past the image of her that the paparazzi and news stories propagate.

Also starring is Anthony Head (known for Buffy fame) as the Repo Man. He does a fantastic job of playing such a tormented figure as that. Also in the film are Ogre of Skinny Puppy and Sarah Brightman (as my favorite character (only tied with Grave Robber) Blind Mag). Her voice is simply angelic. Amazing movie and amazing soundtrack.

You are right, Sayday, it comes out January 20th and (keep fingers crossed) there are approximately 60 songs in total, so let's hope for a full soundtrack to be released as well!

For fans of Rocky Horror, Horror, Goth Subculture, Gore, Dark Comedy or Opera, check out this film! And the soundtrack!

My sister got the soundtrack for Christmas yesterday. One of my other favorites that I didn't hear online is Needle in a Bug, sung between Shiloh, and Graverobber. It's short, but for some reason I find it kind of erotic. :0

Good news for you, that song is actually in a deleted scene that will be on the DVD release. Yeah, I really dig that song too. Can't wait to see it.

And I think I have to say my favorite songs are "Chromaggia", "21st Century Cure", "Zydrate Anatomy", and "Legal Assassin". The whole soundtrack is just unskippable. It is impossible to skip a track. I can't. Every song is amazing.

Yeah, that would be fantastic.

And I just learned that they are planning to release an extended version of the soundtrack with the dvd next month. So, yeah, sweet, haha.

do you mean it will be sung live by the actual actors or maybe by some people that have been practicing for the awards if that happens?

No, the actual cast. Darren Lynn Dousman (the director/producer) said in an interview that if any of the songs win the cast themselves will perform them.

It comes out on DVD January 20th. It came out in theaters November 7th in a select few cities across the country (and Portland was the first one to show it, yeah!)

I plan to have a Repo! screening at my (or Kahlan's) place when it comes out, so you should definitely come check it out with us, Urahara! And anyone else is welcome too.

Hmm, it may have been referring to the Repo! Road Tour, which was pretty much advertised the same way. Saying Repo! coming to Portland live and whatnot. If that is what it was mentioning, then that happened back in November, but there is a great chance of it playing again at the Clinton St. Theater. They have been playing it a lot since it opened in November.

Although, if it did mean the stage show is coming through, then that is something else entirely. And much to be drooled over, for sure.

I saw the Spirit too. How did you like it? I thought it was quite funny which I wasn't expecting.

My sister's friend's... uncle? I don't know. He pirates DVD's for a living, and he's pirating Repo! for her. I don't have much against pirated DVD's, other then the fact that they don't come with any of the special features. But I'll probably watch it if and when she gets it. :-O

I usually only agree with pirating if the person plans to buy the film, cd, whatever at some point. This is just me, but with something like Repo! where the cast and crew had to go to such extreme lengths to get the film out to the public, I in no way could condone pirating it. They put so much effort into the movie, money out of their own pockets to get it made, I just have to buy it and support them.

But that is just my view on the subject.

If I do pirate movies I tend to buy them. I usually pirate them because I can't wait to see them again. Take Dark Knight for example. I saw it in theater three or four times. I pirated it again just because I wanted to watch it one more time and I also go it for Christmas. :P

Yeah, of course. I didn't mean to come off in a condescending tone or anything. Hopefully I didn't. I did the same thing with Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children. That movie's US release was delayed multiple times but that doesn't mean the fansubs weren't up. So I downloaded that and enjoyed it for about four months before it was actually released, at which time I picked it up in no time.

So yeah, there are many exceptions, I just meant in this specific situation, with Repo! I am going to be sure to buy a copy.

There were quite a few cosplayers at the Repo! Road Tour stop. I actually am considering doing a Repo-man cosplay at some point, either him or Rotti Largo, lol. But definitely someone from Repo! I'd want to do Grave-Robber because I like his voice the best (for a male character, tied with Nathan Wallace/Repo-man), but I couldn't pull it off. So, I'll plan for Reeeeeeeeeeeeepoooo-maaaaaaan. ^_^
