Efficiency, sarcasm, and natty fur!

This monkey and this robot once had a system: three blogs for three subjects. But it was complicated and vague and usually ended in feces throwing. So we have combined all three into a melange of media reviews and links and excessive blather, so as to reduce the burden on your short attention span.

In the right column, Monkey + Robot have compiled for you a compendium of sassy, savvy and in the know media reviews and tidbits, for your time-wasting pleasure. And lest you poke at us with sticks or cut off our power supply, the reviews are now selectable through those perky drop-down menus. Monkey + Robot Film and TV reviews, Wrongrobot's Comic Stash, and more.

Grab a chunk of melon and some Demoral, because in the left column, we have accumulated for you every snappy link we found amusing, entertaining, provocatively witty, or frankly, just colorful, with easy to understand small words so monkeybites can follow along. Such is Robotic Root!

Entertainment Media Ratings System:

Wrongrobot's Robot Rating: 1-10 Clicks, more indicating a happier robot!

IronLung's Robot Rating: 1-10 Clanks! More indicating a red-eyed, slack-jawed, blissed-out, ride-pimped dizzy droid! [this is good]

Vicbot's Robot Rating: 1-10 Whirrs! More indicating data that computes well with others.

11am - 12pm



With his shiny helicopter now all blown up, Saunders continues to taunt Jack just for fun, saying that the 11 vials are in the hands of his random hired goons, and set to be released at noon, without further authorization from him. He claims he can help find them if the President promises him freedom and safe passage to North Africa (cause that's where I want to go) and an F150. Tony is hauled off by random CTU agents for not playing nice, and after both Chase and Jack try to help ("Hey he's one of ours!"), Jack asks Jane to try to convince her father to flee from the dark side. Her pleading and puppy dog eyes are to no avail however, as Saunders claims that what he is doing is for the greater good, and that she will understand and thank him for killing millions someday. Compassionate Jack watches her run off in tears. We are touched.

Jack takes Saunders to the Hotel of Pain, trying to convince him to relent by showing him the bodies. He is not touched. Knowing this, Jack calls in faithful lapdog Chase from a second helicopter, bringing with him Jane.
Saunders looks confused and distressed (as does Jane). Hardass Jack threatens to put Jane in the hotel if Saunders will not cooperate.
Saunders refuses, believing that Jack won't go through with it, so Jack orders the guards to bring her in. Jane is struggling and screaming, Jack is looking morally torn, and Saunders is yelling about her innocence and that Jack can't do this because he is a government agent, and not allowed to not play nice. After Hardass Jack tells Saunders that he is going to watch his own daughter die, Saunders relents at the last moment, and away from Saunders, a tear rolls down Compassionate Jack's cheek. Well, not really. Saunders reveals that the 11 vials have been tagged with GPS chips, and he has memorized the codes so they can be tracked. After all of his planning, he sure gave up quickly.
CTU manages to trace 10 of the vials and has teams sent out to pick them up. The 11th is missing, but Saunders verifies that it is in LA with a man known as Rabens (which he believes to be an alias). There were no specific locations set forth, only that the virus was to be released in a public place to do the most damage.
Jack has him set up with a sketch artist to try to get an image. He also orders Jane to remain at the hotel, presumably in case Saunders gets out of hand.

Hammond has now taken over CTU, and over the phone, Jack asks him to be lenient with Tony, comparing the situation to his own from season 1.
Hammond is not touched, and refuses, arguing that Tony's actions amounted to treason. In an uncomfortable moment, the CTU staff watches silently as Tony is lead in in handcuffs and locked in one of the interrogation rooms.
Surprisingly, Chloe says nothing. Hammond tells Tony he is facing charges of treason, with the possibility of the death penalty, and the best he can hope for is 20 years in prison. Tony is a bit stunned, and looks like he feels as though he should have thought this through a bit better.

After a phone call to Scary Sherry offering to bring her in a part of his team, Palmer sets up a meet with her to give Wayne and Foxton time to ransack her house. Why the President's Chief of Staff is partaking in robbery in person, I don't know. But they wait at the house for Sherry to leave, cleverly concealed behind a tree. Wayne's phone rings and it is Julia, in a blubbering panic because she doesn't know what to do and is looking for help. Wayne eventually hangs up on her and he and Foxton get to work. But with little success. Palmer and Sherry meet at random deserted park, and Palmer tries to be noncommittal about what he is promising, but finally offers her and advisor position. Sherry scoffs and wants more. When Palmer asks what she wants, she says she wants to be First Lady again, so she can be in the spotlight and have lots of power.



Knowing he has to buy time, Palmer reluctantly agrees. At first, Scary Sherry can't believe it (and neither can we), and after some tears of power hungriness and hugging, finally realizes with her Scary power that something else is going on, and that she is going to help Keller crush him like a bug. She quickly leaves and heads home. Palmer calls Wayne and tells him she is on her way. Wayne protests that they have not found the pills yet. Then Foxton finds a safe in the seller, and calls an associate who might have override codes.

The 10 vials have been located and the couriers are in the process of being taken out on a variety of live web-feeds. Chloe has located the 11th GPS signal, and verifies that Rabens is in LA and on the move.

Jack and Chase follow the signal in their F150 Good-guy mobile. Chloe leads them and tells them they should be following directly behind them, but they see no one.



Jack realizes he must be in the subway, and has Chloe get into the metro control system and stop the train just outside the station. He also orders an undercover CTU and Hazmat team to meet him there.

Michelle can't get access to Tony, and when she questions Hammond, finally learns of Tony's involvement in helping Saunders escape, and looks stunned.
Hammond tells her that if she would have done the same thing, she should resign.

Foxton finally gets the safe open as Sherry returns, but no pills.
Sherry finds Wayne and accuses him of doing the President's dirty work (that is HER job after all...), and Foxton gives her some of what she deserves and whacks her from behind, knocking her out. Frisky hands reveal the pill bottle taped to her back, which just has to be uncomfortable if you sitting down.

As the CTU agents get in place at the station, Jack has Chloe release the train, and they slowly narrow down the search for Rabens using the GPS signal. They eventually pin it down to one man with a shopping bag, looking at a wall map. Jack tackles him, and Chase rummages through the bag, only to find the GPS tag but no vial. Rabens has planted the tag on someone else. Jack has the station locked down, and Chase reports that no one has left.

As Wayne and Foxton get ready to leave, Julia pulls up outside Sherry's house, and goes in. Wayne gets out of his car and goes in to see what she is doing. Inside, Julia pulls a gun on the now conscious Sherry, and whines about everything that has happened and how it was all Sherry's fault. Wayne stands by looking like he is waiting for a mud wrestling match to start. Sherry uses her pleading and lying ways to tell Julia she can make everything all right, and Julia slowly lowers the gun. But maybe she saw a sparkle in Sherry's eye or something, and quickly fires several shots at Sherry, finally ending her reign of terror. Wayne, stunned, bends down to check on Sherry. Julia, crying, tells Wayne how sorry she is, and turns the gun on herself. Now if we could only get rid of Kim...

Next week is the finale...and the answer to the biggest question of the season, the ultimate cliffhanger, the big WHAT THE...

Will Mandy come back and give us more of that viral spanking we love so dearly? Vector me! Vector me! Vec----Sqwaaaawwwwwwrkkkkkkk...01001001011 01010 100101010 101001 010 010100101010 100111111111111101010101001001 10101 101 101 10101010 10101 10101 0 ----------

Comic News: Warren Ellis and Adi Granov on Iron Man Project



Rich Johnston reported yesterday that a new Iron man project was just announced, with Warren Ellis on writing chores, and digital painter Adi Granov on rendering. Adi has been doing IM covers for five issues now, and is doing a single issue in regular continuity as well. Between Ellis and Gradov, if Marvel finds a way to make this suck, like printing it on newsprint or something, I will be an angry robot.

TV News: CSI:NY; Film News: Batman Begins, Constantine; Film Review: Starsky and Hutch: 03/08/04 Archive

Our post from March 8th was unexpectedly detained without charge, then deported. So, here is an archive version of said post, including the long,lost Starsky and Hutch review.

TV News: CSI New York 3/8/04

Film News: Batman Begins, Constantine 3/8/04

Film Review: Starsky & Hutch

CSI: New York





According to Entertainment Weekly.com:

"Lieutenant Dance
Who'll star in ''CSI: New York''? CBS reportedly courts Gary Sinise as it gathers a spinoff cast, to be introduced on an upcoming ''CSI: Miami'' episode by Gary Susman

Looks like Lieutenant Dan may join the New York police department. According to the Hollywood Reporter, negotiations are picking up between the producers of the ''CSI'' franchise and Gary Sinise for the ''Forrest Gump'' actor to star in the latest spinoff, ''CSI: New York,'' due on CBS this fall. They'll have to be quick about it, since the producers will soon be shooting this season's second-to-last episode of ''CSI: Miami,'' where they'll introduce the ''New York'' characters, much as the ''Miami'' characters were introduced two years ago on a late-season episode of the original ''CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.'' Sinise's TV experience includes such historical biopic roles as his Emmy-winning performance in the title role of the TV movie ''George Wallace'' and the starring role in ''Truman.'' His most recent movie was last year's ''The Human Stain.'' Which sounds like the sort of thing he'd be examining if he takes the ''CSI'' job."

I got duped in this news byte. I thought they were writing that ole Bubba Shrimp was going to be on the cast, our oneof Wrongrobot's Favored Actors, Mykelti Williamson. Now, I'm keen for Gary Sinise as well, and i think he can affect the scowl and mr. cool postures necessary for a CSI detective. However, Mykelti is the main man. Heat! "This shit sells itself!"
Boomtown! Wierd news reports of him chasing his girlfriend with a machete! You can't go wrong here! Ah well...

Also, let's all pray to the robot god-creator-programmers that they stop announcing themselves as "City X Crime Lab!" ont hat show. If someone knocked on my door and announced they were from the Crime Lab, I'd back away slowly.

Batman Begins

From Comic Reel: IGN Filmforce has a script review of David Goyer's screenplay. "In short, Batman Begins is ... a Western! The story features a gruff loner with a thirst for revenge who comes to town to rid it of the outlaws and corrupt officials bedeviling it. This man of violence can only trust a few townsfolk for help (I guess that makes Jim Gordon the quintessential one good deputy) and he must rely on his incomparable physical skills to get the job done. If that isn't a traditional Western plot then I don't know what is. As a huge fan of that genre, I appreciated those parallels. Batman Begins, as you most likely already know, is an origin tale. The first 45 pages employ a non-linear structure that recounts what drove Bruce Wayne (Bale) to assume the mantle of Batman, how he developed his fighting skills (and who taught him some new tricks), and how he focused his rage into something beneficial rather than purely selfish and destructive."

That's actually not a bad description, and to be honest, it's just refreshing to see the Batman mythos described as anything other than "camp", "surreal Tim Burton camp" or the ubiquitous "hard-boiled film noir" label, which has never really been true.

Constantine:



I don't like to spend much time pissing on the corpses of misguided comic film projects, but i'm not oging to complain when someone else does the work for me. It's been hard to find anything GOOD reported about the abysmally bad production scoops on Keannu Reeve's...Hellblazer...set in LA...with a crime fighting cop sidekick...and no connection to the UK slant that made this book so clever... but here's some interesting notes about creator reaction to this property's apparent bastardization:

"The web is abuzz with the news that fan favorite Alan Moore has asked to have his name removed from the new Keanu Reeves film altogether, and asked that all royalties due him be split up between the co-creators of the character. Ain't It Cool News has the first word, and Moore himself said in a recent interview with Alan David Doane that "for my part, I'm currently very, very disenchanted with films, so I don't really want anymore films made of my stuff."

Long time Moore collaborator Rick Veitch clarified some of the issues involved over on the Comicon Message Boards, saying, "Alan had decided to wash his hands of Hollywood because of the LOEG lawsuit. CONSTANTINE just happened to be the first project to fall in his lap after that. I end up being the biggest beneficiery of his decision about passing his royalties to the co-creators. The history of the creator credits are a bit convoluted, but I'll try to explain it: John and Steve originally came up with the idea of adding a character to SWAMP THING who looked like Sting and pitched it to Alan. He took that and created the trench-coated, Silk Cut smoking Constantine for ST #37, which I ended up drawing as a fill in. All I really added to Alan's incredibly detailed description was the ear ring (although if I'd made JC look like Elvis Costello the world might have been a different place, eh?). When HELLBLAZER was launched, DC was just in the beginning stages of offering creator participation. At that time, Alan gave his percentage to Jaimie Delano and John Ridgeway and I stepped aside for Steve and John Totleben. Each of those guys got 5%. Somehow, in some later deal (which Alan tells me he doesn't even remember happening), DC gave Alan another ten percent. Alan has disbursed this 10% by passing 6% to me and 1% each to John T, Steve, Jaimie and John R. So we each end up with 6%. If there are creator credits I probably won't be on them (and from the look of the stills I've seen that's no great loss). And yes, Alan is an exrtaordinary individual!"

Literary giant Neil Gaiman chimed in with some clarification, saying, "it's true that Alan's rejected the money for CONSTANTINE and assigned it to his cocreators, but he's now done that for all films of his and things he's done that might one day be filmed. This was because he was deeply hurt and offended and irritated by being accused in the Larry Cohen lawsuit of having written League of Extraordinary Gentlemen as some kind of studio shill, and because Alan never does anything by halves. Up until the lawsuit his position was that he didn't care about the films people made from his work, but was happy to cash the cheques; after, he decided that he didn't even want to cash the cheques. His share of Constantine was redistributed among his co-creators, John Totleben, Steve Bissette and Rick Veitch and to Jamie Delano and John Ridgway. As far as I know, from having spoken to him, Alan's view on Constantine itself is the same as his view on From Hell and League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, which is that he'll probably rent the DVD one day, you never know, hell might freeze over, -- and that the important work is the comic -- the main difference being here that the film is, from what I understand, mostly based on the Garth Ennis and Jamie Delano issues of the Hellblazer comic. (And, for whatever remains of the record, Alan hasn't seen anything of Constantine -- no scripts, no nothing. Nor has he had any contact with DC on it except for asking Karen Berger to redistribute the money and the credit.)"

Run for the hills!

Starsky & Hutch film review:

We're big Owen Wilson fans around here. And I appreciate Ben Stiller's efforts, even if once and awhile it seems he needs to dial it back a bit on certain projects. I think this might have been one of them. No mistake, it was a fun click, and it was very close to what I imagined it would be a year ago when we first heard the casting news about the production. Old School director Todd Phillips has a certain eye for how to insert really ludicrous comic scenarios into material that's more contextually amusing than outright laughable. The whole production of nostalgic retreads remade as wink-nod post-modern self-referential projects like this rides on the similarities to the original material, more than any unique new takes on it. It's not new-take-worthy material. The fun is in seeing how clsoe they can replicate the look of the original, while making knowing references to how absurd it all seems to a contemporary audience. But a problem is starting to present itself in some of these films, notably this one and the first Charlie's Angels: they seem to become cool-factor vehicles for self-righteous superiority over original material that, when judged in period context, was, if not technically GOOD material, was at least entertaining and a product of the times. It's not hard to make fun of the excesses of the entertainment past. In fact, I would think much of Hollywood can look just 5 years back and feel somewhat uncomfortable with what was popular (Congo? Judge Dread? Mask?) much of entertainment doesn't age well. I'd say most of it. But when you look at it from a period filter, it's more enlightening. Material that stands the test of time tends to have a technical or performance quality that I guess transcends, for lack of a better word, the dated look of the production. This is why grainy old Bob Hope stand-up is still funnier than most stand-up comedy today, and likewise why Citizen Kane is still the #1 rated film of all time. Viewing thse older films and TV shows can give some experiential cues as to the popular trends and maybe even the public consciousness of the time. OK so enough of that. My point is that to remake an old campy show for today's audiences, and to do it well, youhave to add to the experience. COmment on it. Do something more than just recreate it like a TV biopic.

That said, much of this film is very smart, and plays with concepts from the original in entertaining ways. But most of those elements aren't really about the material, but rather about the dynamics of Stiller and Wilson, which are essentially the same in every movie they make with each other, and with others as well. The vehicle is just a vehicle for these types of performances, and while a lot of this movie was hilarious, I was left feeling like they missed an opportunity to take the homage a little further.



Ben Stiller puts a hell of a lot of energy into committing to his roles in films like this. His physical energy is impressive, when doing the idiotic beach training scenes to the impressive dance sequence, which rivals Zoolander in showcasing Stiller's surreal skills with dated dance moves. Some of his characters in the film, or rather the characters his character Starsky implements undercover, are thorougly entertaining, especially the mob thug he affects in the final sequence of the film "DO IT! DO IT!" However, his nebbish insecurities and petty arguments and pouting, which he uses in several such films, ulled him back into Stiller, and out of Starsky. It was distracting. Also, the set-up of having the cool cat partnered with the serious, dedicated and out of touch over-achiever tight ass, is fun sure, and has been fun each time they do it, but misses the magic of the original material.

It's still fun to watch the TV show, because these guys, like several comedy-action shows of the 70s, were hardcore bad asses but also silly overacting family-friendly hams as well. That balance is hard to pull off unless you have the charm, and you commit to the genre. David Soul and Paul Michael Glaser had that wierd 70s chemical bond that is too easy today to ape as a homo-erotic male bonding fnatasy. I think it was different than that. I think there's a tangible theatrical skill involved in this sort of buddy pairing that shows like Starsky, hammy as they were, excelled at. Now, this wasn't an excellent show by any measure, I wouldn't say, but it hold up in syndication, and to be honest, I'm not sure which was moreamusing, watching the original or the remake. These little nuances in the TV show made me laugh, like Soul's habit of launching an excited bombastic clebratory hoot and hollar at some good news by making this manly clap nd getting really intense with his body language. That's a wierd dated acting style, yes, but it is entertaining to watch. The film, on the other hand, is funniest when the actors ham it up like the dated character's behavior from the show. This revisionist filter on the original material is always interesting to me. I love Owen Wilson, but I mean, he just played himself, and it was a little tired by the end of the film. I would have much preferred they both play the parts straight, like Stiller managed to do in much of his screen time. The original duo were a pair of manly, dedicated yet fun-loving guys, and the imbalanced premise of Stiller and Owen together undermines the unmined cheekiness of the original set-up. Several aspects of this film seemed more about trumping up the celebrity image of the players involved, rather than committing to the style of the genre.



An exceptional standout to this was Vince Vaughn as sketchy drug dealer Reese. He marries the classic Vaugh's smarmy cool with a brilliant contextual hipness that was hilarious, like dancing and singing along to the lyrics at his daughter's batmitspah or sporting a perm, stache and bronzing nearly as dark as Stiller's and looking eerily comfortable in his polyster leisure suits.



Snoop was great, but only when he played Huggy for laughc, not as retro ghetto royalty as he plays himself everywhere else these days. Scenes of him being taped up with giant tape recording equipment in his boxers, or when acting as the fish-out-water caddy for Vince Vaughn's Reese Feldman, were good stuff. Owen has his moments, but overall it seemed more of a vanity piece for him, with the girls and the laid back behavior. I mean, even those of us who consider ourselves fans of the guy GET IT by now. You're a hunk AND a geek. Right. Roles like in Bottle Rocket and Zoolander were better for him, as he could play characters who thought they were brilliant, but were actually kind of kidding themselves. Or at least, Wilson was poking fun of his own image, at the very least in Zoolander.



Carmen Elektra and Amy Smart do what needs to be done as the sexy loose 70s love interests, and their campy sexuality is picture perfect for these groupie/hottie/sexpot hangers-on from shows like this. The Guys May be Fey But They Are All Hetero Dont Worry. Message loud and clear on the original show, and here, the same sort of playing it both ways thing happens in the film, as the hotties are making out after fondue and coke, and not twenty minutes later, the lovesick montage lamenting partnerships lost is set to a groovy love ballad.



All of the scenes with the Gran Torino or perfect. The send-up of this Viewable From Space red hot rod used as an undercover vehicle are great in every scene, parked in front of the racketeering hideout, and the police station consecutively. The power slides and drifts and out of scale leaps are fabulous, and the final sequence of the car in the film is only matched in laughs, by the great car-wrecking outtakes during the credit sequence. Another prominant vehicle appearance is the yellow Karmann Ghia in the climactic sequence. Beautiful! I still can't get over Stiller's coked up dance-off scene. His moves were great! My favorite line in the whole film" "Now he's doing a dance from the future: 1984's ROBOT!" I would have liked to see more campy mock serious sendups of period technology.



Stiller runs with a giant set of headphone radio gear in one scene, which is used effectively, as was Vaughn's use of a normal house phone in his Mercedes, and the full-size mic and tape recorder duct taped to Snoop's ropey little torso. I would have liked to see both cops using badly out of scale hand cannons in the film, and perhaps some clever send-ups of the contemporary CSI "crime solving technology" trends as well. But the fondue was a nice touch.

Overall, I thought the execution of the film was very funny, and it I had a great time. I think they could have gone further, but Stiller's committment to his character's...intensity...went a long way.

Film Review: House of 1000 Corpses

A spontaneously hyper-threaded and triple-coded film review by IronLung, for the Rob Zombie fan in all of us, or at least 5% of us... but count me in: I had the first White Zombie album when it came out, and it had enough cachunka-chunka to duel my old Metallica albums for awhile there. That guy is rad. "Nineteen sixty- fieeeeeeyeahhhh!"



House of 1000 Corpses:

I dig Rob Zombie. He makes great music, both solo and with White Zombie, he has killer visual taste, and seems to be a pretty cool guy in interviews and whatnot.



So when House of 1000 Corpses came out, I was pretty excited to see it. As with most movies that i'm pretty excited about seeing, though, I ended up Netflixing it months after its DVD release. I had to watch it twice, cause the first time I was drinking heavily and the entire back half of it slid right through the holes in my gray matter. (the second time I had a bricklaying hangover, but that's not the point.) But now i've seen it, thought about it, and gotten most of my thoughts about it organized. Here they are, in no particular order or proper grammatical structure.

[I can attest to this: IronLung was up on the roof that night, grappling a parapet, howling "Houssa one thousen courses!!!" which made the rest of us hungry for BBQ... -Wrongrobot Edit]

OK, i'll start with the story ... college-aged kids on road trip end up lost in redneck area of nondescript southern state and find themselves at the mercy of inbred group of crazies whose interests include torture, murder, wearing other people's skin, and various biological experiments including, but not limited to, electric stimulation of exposed brain of human subject, slow flaying, crucifixion and combination of human and animal into strange, nondescript flesh sculpture. Sound familiar? Yeah, that's because it's the same basic story as Deliverance, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Pumpkinhead, Jeepers Creepers, and a half-dozen other movies, including a brilliantly executed two-part episode of the X-Files. But whatever, it's still Zombie, so I continued to give it a chance.

[Regarding Jeepers Creepers, which I have not seen: USA has been broadcasting repeated commercials for it during their copious, and glorious, amounts of Law and Order re-runs, and all we can think of when Justin Long is standing around his car yelling warnings or whatever he's doing in those scenes, is an overdub of him warbling "MISS VESSSSSSEY!!!!!" -Wrongrobot Edit]

Moving right along to the characters ... as a result of a recycled storyline, your potential for unique characters is immediately cut down significantly, but I think that this was where the movie came through with it's strongest showing. The kids didn't have anything to say for themselves, really, they were standard gore-movie throwaways who spent most of their on-screen time screaming, crying, running, or gagging on their own blood in exaggerated death throes. The antagonists, though, were totally cool in a sick sort of way.



Otis, the guy who seems to be in charge, is an artist at heart, his medium just happens to be, um, human remains. (And in some instances, human pieces with vestiges of life left in them.) In a particularly funny scene, he's telling this bound-and-gagged girl to shut the fuck up and stop screaming. Their conversation goes on and she asks through blubbery, snotty, choking fear, 'Where's Bill?' and Otis sort of calms down and describes how Bill got him through the most serious case of artist's block that he'd ever been up against. This is, of course, precedent to Otis showing off Bill's 'new look,' which you can't imagine -- trust me.



Mother Firefly is a sort of back-seat character, usually drunk and appropriately slutty in a gross, motherly sort of way, but played with reckless abandon by Karen Black of [insert any Christopher Guest movie name here] fame. She seems to be the mother of most of the characters, and has a wonderful scene with the local sherrif, which ends with said sherrif acquiring an extra orifice. Grampa Hugo doesn't get much screen time, and isn't that interesting of a character anyway, so i'm gonna gloss over him.



Captain Spaulding is probably the funniest character in the whole movie. He runs a 'murderers and madmen' curio-type shop nearby to the House of 1000 Corpses (where everyone else lives), and dresses like a clown (literally) when running his tours. Alas, he's usually NOT running a tour, but always has remnants of his facepaint on, even when wearing casual duds like his 'pigs is beautiful' t-shirt, complete with graphic of pig wearing a policeman's hat. There's nothing quite like seeing an overweight hillbilly with half-washed off clownpaint under a red trucker cap. Fucking hysterical.



Tiny is an interesting, albeit silent character, played by the giant from 'Big Fish.' get it? Tiny? Played by a giant? Anyways, i've saved the best for last -- Baby.



Baby is a seemingly normal, slutty blonde, twenty-something, usually wearing something vinyl-fetish or cowgirl-sluttish, and exhibiting an affection for knives and razorblades and their ensuing separation of flesh from bone. If you're into music videos or Rob Zombie, you'll remember her from videos like 'Dragula,' 'More Human Than Human,' and 'Living Dead Girl.' Rockabilly devil chick for days and nice eye candy for most straight guys and lipstick lesbians alike.

[Is it a coincidence that she's Rob Zombie's wife? -Wrongrobot Edit]

And finally, my overview (jeezus -- already? no rush!) ... I was generally disappointed by this flick. There was nothing that I didn't expect. Everything that was shown, from a gore-flick perspective, had been done -- sometimes over and over again. Film tricks were amateurish. Grainy treatments, bouncy video-recorder style moments, complete with quick cuts of rotting flesh, color-inverse treatments, white-trash decoration style -- the whole nine.



You've seen it all, if not in movies, then in Rob Zombie videos, album covers and websites. I don't know if it's because the 'backwoods-hillbilly-family-with-pencant-for-torture-and-murder' movie is almost it's own genre, or if it's because Rob Zombie's affection for such has been pimped to within an inch of its life over his 15-plus-year career as an entertainer, but either way, it's been done and nothing was new in this movie.



I will give it this -- it didn't have the 'happy ending' which i'm so disgusted by. You know the one, where everyone is dead except one person, who manages to get free and after long, barefoot run through scary forest, finds themselves on a local road where they're picked up almost immediately by friendly driver. It didn't happen that way, so that was a saving grace. And as I said, the cast of antagonist characters was nicely modernized from the Texas Chainsaw family. But in the end, the X-Files did a superior job of working within this genre, much to my dismay.

And I would still recommend this movie to all Rob Zombie fans, even though I was generally let down. He has done all he can with the genre, and has modernized it to where you can somewhat feel like you're watching something new -- even if you're not.

I give it 5 clanks. The special features on the DVD are fucking hysterical, deserving on their own merit a 7-clank rating. (See especially, 'Tiny fucked a stump.')

So says ironlung!
