re: Repo! The Genetic Opera.

So I’ve seen a couple clips from it, and they look promising. It helps that the linked song has a listing on under “ear worms”. :slight_smile: Has anyone seen this performed? I was amazed at Anthony Head (Giles! :-D) and Paris Hilton(?) showing up in the cast. It looks like it could be quite neat. That, and Lionsgate is releasing it, and their products are pretty consistently daring, if not good. …Well, except for the Saw series. That really should have ended at 3.

Thoughts, anyone? Think you might go see it, when it comes out?

I’ll definitely go see it. I don’t know much of the plot, but from what I’ve heard it sounds good, and that clip owns the shit out of everything. Thanks for sharing!

Looks cool. It looks like it won’t be released on the screen in Seattle, so now I need to decide whether to buy the CD or wait for the DVD. :frowning:

How do you know this? I just got invited to see it by my son and his girlfriend; I assumed we would be seeing it in the Seattle area. If not, I would like to be able to tell them so!

Don’t get me wrong; this looks interesting. But let’s get one thing straight here: 9 times out of 10, you’d be safe to assume that the Lionsgate imprint equals utter garbage. They seem to be on a campaign to trick people into buying the worst movies in the world. Their mainstream, blockbuster titles excepted of course, but for the last several years Lionsgate has been flooding the market with the lowest of the low-quality, exploitation junk they can get their grubby little hands on. One in a hundred of these is a gem among the dreck, but unfortunately I’ve become conditioned to skip it if it’s Lionsgate.

PLUS, they’re one of those companies who makes their animated logo mandatory; no matter how many Lionsgate movies you’ve watched, you STILL have to sit through that goddamn cogs-and-wheels logo without the option to skip or FF.

K. End of hijack.


EDIT: Ah, apparently the Wikipedia is a bit short on info. Checking the official website it says that on Nov. 10-17 it will be in Seattle.

It has Nivek Ogre as Pavi Largo, (in the middle, there) attaching new faces to look pretty.
That beats any Paris Hilton hate, right there.
I can’t wait.
