    Saw it last night. The highlight was definitely Rachel Nipples' huge tits...otherwise it was disapointing. The male lead is campy and melodramatic to the point of absurdity, I found myself laughing throughout the whole thing. It was an ok waste of 110 mins, but nothing exceptional. Except for Rachel Nipples..

    saw it last night with a big crowd. i liked it a lot. good acting, wes bentley is one crazy mofo in the movie but to the point where you just can't help but laugh and rachel nichols was great(and not to mention distractingly sexy in a blood splattered, revealing dress). it was a bit slow at times but not too bad. the movie was actually a lot more bloodier than i expected which was nice. the audience groaned at some of the nastier scenes a bunch of times, it was all good stuff. the ending was great too, go check it out guys.

    I enjoyed it even though I did find myself laughing quite a bit at Wes Bentley's tremendously over the top yelling scenes, and cringing at that whole Elvis scene. It did have some pretty gruesome scenes, which I didn't think I'd see in this kind of movie. I liked Rachel Nichols, of course her non-ugly appearance probably had a lot to do with that. If nothing else I think she deserves the "Cleavage of the Year" award, which was going to Rose McGowan in Planet Terror up until this.

    Not sure how well it'll do, we went to a 5:30 showing last night and there were 11 people in the theater. But then Paul said he saw it with a big crowd, so maybe we just went too early.

    Saw this last night, and thought it was pretty awesome. Definately one of the better thrillers to come out in the last while. I loved Wes Bentley's acting chops in this one, so over-the-top it's good. And quite gory as well! 4 out of 5.

    Oh hell, I forgot all about this movie. I went to the theater today and was like, "P2? What the hell movie is that?" I went and saw Bee Movie instead.

    Oh well, I guess I will catch it on DVD.

    For this transgression you must now watch Hostel 1 and 2 back to back, followed by Saw 2 and 3. Add a dozen Hail Mary's, 3 Candyman's (in mirrior of course) and the torture porn Gods will probably forgive you.:D

    I misssed it too, but went to American Gangster instead. Was hoping to make it a double, but P2 was on the other side of theater so we couldn't get to it.:(

    Damn bigdaddyhorse don't play. :nervous: I would like to point out that it was not all my fault, they didn't even have a poster for this one up, just in case someone needed a different movie to see once American Gangster sold out.

    I added it to my netflix line already. Something tells me it will be hitting DVD real, real soon.

    O.K., drop the Saw's and Hail Mary's. The Hostel still stands.:)
    I'm sure it will beat Americna Gangster to dvd by at least 2-5 weeks.

    AG is a damn good movie, the only bad thing I can say is the print was out of focus in the theater I saw it in, unless it was on purpose but that seems unlikely.
    At the end, there was a a shot of a main character standing in front of a doorway, this doorway had 2 identical signs on the left and right of it. I could read the one on the left, but the one on the right was unreadable although obvilously the same.
    So anyone else who's seen this, was the screen I saw it on fucked or was this an artistic desicion? I noticed it in other parts but not as pronounced and obvilous as the shot near the end.

    Your print was probably out of focus. AG was way way way too long for it's own good. To me it felt like a 4 hour movie.

    But yeah, they're showing P2 at one of the smaller theatres in my city that barely anyone goes to anymore. When I went last night with my buddy, there was probably only a total of 8 or 9 people, including us.

    Obviously not a slut

    In retrospect, this was not a bad thing at all. I will take Bee Movie over this any day of the week.

    Who was the real damsel in distress was in this movie? The bad guy sucked at kidnapping about as much as hero girl sucked at escaping. Sure, she was forced to listen to him talk which was really, really, really quite cruel, but the "stupid fucking cunt" did
    kill his dog, a defenseless creature! *Disclaimer: I am quoting Wes's character in the movie here and do not blame her really for killing his vicious attack dog right when he was about to rip out her throat
    Tsk tsk. It is almost a tie, but I hold that the fact that Wes screams like a 6 year old girl may in fact make him the movie's true damsel.

    It is entirely possible this movie would play better with a crowd or if you were not expecting it to be good, but neither applied to me tonight I thought it was terrible. The only thing that made the movie watchable to me was laughing at Wes Bentley's utterly embarrassing Cary Elwes approved performance. Way to ruin Christmas. Asshole.

    I assume you're joking, right? You just have to be.

    Quoting, not joking.

    I am still laughing at the movie this morning, and am seriously considering printing up some "Obviously Not a Slut" t-shirts, so maybe the movie will become a campy dessert in time.

    Well then, I don't know how one could consider a Rottweiler with sharp claws and fangs a "defenseless creature". Nevermind that it was busy trying to rip out her throat when she killed it in self defense, but whatever.

    Wes's character said that, rather hilariously I might add, during one of his countless hissy fits. You will have to take it up with him.

    Quotation marks around everything, not just "Stupid Fucking Cunt", would be helpful then in trying to figure out whether or not it was your own viewpoint or not. I just naturally assumed that everything outside the quotes was what you really thought.

    I can definitely see where that would be confusing. I will edit for clarity.

    I caught this last night and overall I thought it was pretty good and I could see Aja's influence throughout. Although the film overall works, I really didn't buy into both leads and that hurt the film for me. I'm still not sure what to make of it but hey at least we will have another Christmas themed horror film to watch this winter.
