"Repo Chick" Trailer: Intense, But Not Necessarily The Good Kind Of Intense

Here is a promo for Alex Cox's forthcoming Repo Chick. Alex Cox, Walker notwithstanding, has a ton in the bank with me. I know it is unfair to judge solely on the basis of a trailer, and I hope that I am wrong, but it looks like he is about to make a massive withdrawal. [Via]

What's Alex Cox being doing recently, anyway? I haven't heard anything about since the early 90s or so.

Oh, just checkd his IMDB. The answer is apparently 'not a lot'.

Misunderstanding green screen.

There's not enough Ws, Ts, of Fs in the world.

So this is entirely green-screened?

I will be expecting a Jar Jar Binks cameo.

If this movie opens with, "The doughnut's glaze sparkled in the morning sun…" I will file suit.

This makes 'Southland Tales' look good. It's that sad.

Oh, Alex, I'm afraid I have to agree with your impression here.

Based on that trailer, I don't know WHAT this film is trying to be. But among the many things it might be trying to be, it looks like "good" isn't one of them.

The greenscreen thing must be some kind of Brechtian distancing device, or something along those lines, right? Er..

The more you film, the less intelligent you are.

I blame society. Society made him what he is.

You eat a lot of acid, Cox, back in the hippie days?

Must me something wrong with me because this trailer makes me want to see this entire movie immediately.

If they're playing for camp and if it contains some tasteful nudity, then I'd say it'd be worth viewing on cable.

Based on every report I've heard from people who've actually seen the film, it is not good. No, it is not good at all. Though Cox seems to be proud of it, so maybe your mileage may very.

Sorry, I'm holding out for the sequel to "Straight to Hell."

Is this a mod level for Wolfenstein 3D?

Massive withdrawal? More like a massive deposit!

It's like I'm watching MNN in HD

I'm too lazy to Google to find out if my theory is correct (I'm working on a word for that…"Skoogling" maybe? Skipping Googling), but while I assumed this would suck, I didn't think it would appear to be THIS much of a suck. I'm hoping this trailer is a total red herring, and nothing like what's to come in any way, shape, or form.

If it is, well, uh. Well. Hm.

Any rate.

And this thread is the most publicity this misbegotten project can possibly hope for.
