"And what if you could have genetic perfection?
Would you change who you are if you could?"

17 views, no comments. I guess I'm not the only one that hasn't seen it. :(

At least this will bump it up for you.

OH and in answer to your question, who wouldn't? We are all striving for our own idea of perfection, whatever that may be to each individual.

I can't believe it is from the producers of the Saw films.


Here is the commercial.........

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xETgGym8cnE[/youtube]

And here is the movie to watch, for free,( in two parts )

Part 1

Part 2

first,you will have to prove you are human before it links you to the page,
then you will be forced to watch a commercial,
THEN you will hit the play button............

right click to open box, or double click on left for fullscreen.




Looks like lotsa good costume ideas in there.

definitely a film worth watching. it is a cult-classic-to-be.

if youve seen rocky horror picture show, youll love this movie.
if you like musical gore, just as good

also, depending on what level you enjoy musicals, you might like to know the origins of the repo! story are based on an old 10-minute opera known as "the necromerchant's debt".

neat little origin that takes place in 3 parts:

anno domini - basis for the "21st century cure"
genetic repo man - nearly identical to the same song in REPO!

maybe she has never watched divX videos before ??

( it's perfectly safe to download DivX, RHB, and it only applies itself when the video you are trying to watch is in that format....kinda like Quicktime)

I love Repo!

Most people haven't heard of it because it was VERY limited release. In many cases, only at a small indy theatre for a week in most cities. It actually didn't even come to Calgary.

I was in AZ and happened to catch it the last day I was there in January, and just got the Blu-Ray. Really wicked show.

Bladerunner meets Rocky Horror.

And, you can't beat Paris Hilton's face falling off! ;)

Don't just watch it for free. This is the little movie that could, and deserves support thru product sales.

They have ads on thier links, Commerce is as Commerce does.

watching it for free is different than downloading it for free, plus just watching it is NOT ILLEGAL.

so please use the links I provided, and watch it for free if you want to.





or don't...............

I didn't actually look at what it was asking me. I have a newer computer that is the biggest little pile of...expletive deleted. Arghhh! Anyway, I figured whatever it was, wasn't going to do me any good since lil' Pile isn't coping well with just basics. After I tried it Pile got really fussy and it took like 3 restarts and almost a re-throw against the wall.

I was going to watch this, then I found out Paris Hilton was in it so I didn't.

Maybe I will watch it later, then I'll get back to you on your question. Wait, what was the question? Something about genetic perfection...

On that note:

I was listening to a radio programme this morning about how mental decline starts at the age of 22. That scares me. If I could buy my way out of aging, I would do it in an instant.

I am not scared of gray hair or wrinkles, but alzheimer's and dementia scare me shitless and I always want to be able to move around independently and talk until the day I die.

I'm not one for changing stuff about myself, but if I could pay to keep my mental alertness until I die at whatever age, I would do it.

I saw it in the theater when it came out and now own it on DVD. This movie is awesome!!
I hate Paris Hilton as well but she is actually does a great job in this. I mean what role could be better for her then a rich heiress addicted to plastic surgery and zydrate?

Plus you can't tell how bad her acting is, because EVERYONE is overacting.

I have found a couple of the songs to be mentally addictive too......


Watched it 3rd time now, and will prolly watch it again & again.

Repo!

Postby Birdmad » Wed Apr 22, 2009 10:05 pm

A friend recommended this movie to me a while back.

Very interesting concept, but I think it could have been executed a bit.. more eloquently. A lot of the music sounded like they put some beat track to a regular conversation. Other songs were good though.

Still, for the theme of evolution I think this movie makes some bold, true statements and might inspire some great ideas for BM 09.

this is a fantastic movie! I love how cheesy it is, and Paris pretty much plays herself!

the outfits of the zydrate addicts in the "zydrate anatomy" song (available on youtube) are very burner-like (corsets, fishnets, fake dreads) and there are some more hot goth outfits throughout :)
