No, I pretty much hated every aspect of it. When one of my friends described it to me, it sounded like something that would be really fun and interesting, but the actual movie just bored me to tears. The soundtrack being rubbish didn't help either.

I just got done watching Repo today after hearing so much about it and I can honestly say that it sucked. It was beyond awful for me. I have no idea why anyone would enjoy this movie so much. The lyrics, the cheesy acting, the music itself... Ugh. I didn't know it was a musical before I saw it though so that surprised me. I will say that Repo does have tough competition for my vote when it comes to musicals though because I've seen great musicals like Chicago, Little Shop of Horrors, and, best of all, Sweeney Todd. No one can really top those. I will say that I love the originality of the film though. I loved the fantasy like aspect of it and futuristic world they lived in.

I wanted to like this movie so badly though because it had such great characters and originality so I kept forgiving it and giving it chances until the very end hoping I would see something that would change my mind, but, no, the movie only got worse around the end and it makes me a bit mad because with a bit of plot editing and better music selection, this could have been a great movie.

Oh, God thank you. I thought it was just me.
The music and acting was just too horrendous for me.
I think this movie would have been much better if they didn't make a weak attempt to make it into a musical. It would have still been boring, but at least bearable.

I love Anthony Stewart Head, Graverobber and Blind Mag. The soundtrack makes work much more bearable.

[[Not to bag, I swear]] I've met Bill Moseley, Terrance Zdunich, Ogre, Darren Lynn Bousman, and Darren Smith through the shadowcast. Me and Darren Smith still chat smile

That movie is a masterpiece.
And makes me happy in downtown areas.

The concept of a society that has organs on file is bizarre but it certainly could be a reality in the future. I know, I know-- the skeptics out there are quick to crash down on such a thought, but...I mean. What if? One day we aren't going to be as well off as we are now, and we are just WAITING on an epidemic and people do really ******** up things when they're frightened and others are vulnerable. (Someone is always cashing in.)

I like a movie that makes me think. I like a movie that turns me on. I like a movie with catchy musical numbers. And I love me some grotesque.

By FAR my favorite musical.

My favorite movie EVER! I've got the DVD, the Soundtrack, and once I get my PS3 fixed I'm going to buy the special edition blu-ray so I can get the extended scenes.

The one con about the soundtrack though is that they put "Can't get it up if the girl's breathing" on it, but not "Come up and Try my new parts" and that was by far my favorite scene(Yeah, I ship Amber/Graverobber, so sure me xp). Too bad it got cut in the final cut of the film. sweatdrop

Oh, and if you guys love Repo! I suggest you look into The Devil's Carnival. It's the new musical Darren and Terrance are working on. Emilie Autumn, Clown from Slipknot, Ivan Moody from Five Finger Death Punch, and quite a few of the Repo! Cast are going to be in it.

Oh, and Darren Lynn Bousman added me as a friend on Facebook. I felt freaking special on that day

I LOVE Repo! It's ridiculously amazing. I've driven 2 hours to attend a shadowcast... 6 different times, I believe? I met Terrance Zdunich (aka Graverobber), got a hug from him, and he complimented the Zydrate shirt I was wearing. It was seriously one of my best days ever.

If you haven't seen it already, go to badassrussian.com and watch the video. It's pretty funny, and has a brief Repo cameo. As well as tons of other neat references to random movies.

I rather be blind
Hmm, hmm! Yes, I enjoyed it very much. I think it's one of those movies you can't take it too serious or you're bound to hate it. It was fun and different in a playful and wonky way.
> 14 hour road trip down to Texas to see a shadowcast and meet Terrance Zdunich (Graverobbber)
Nope, I don't like Repo. mrgreen It was pretty neat meeting TZ. Went to a meet and greet type thing at a restaurant the day after the Repo shadowcast, got to go down the slide with him.

I was actually popping in to this thread to mention The Devil's Carnival, I'm excited to see that somebody else has already mentioned it! It has a website for those who don't know, www.thedevilscarnival.com, which has a trailer and a store and some fun stuff. There's also a forum and a chatroom!
this is the most recent trailer for TDC, if anyone's interested. biggrin
