I'm p**sed that Bad Lieutenant is getting such a limited release.

Nov. 20:

New York
L.A.
Chicago
Washington D.C.
San Francisco

Nov. 25:

Boston
Philidelphia
Dallas
San Diego
Seattle
Phoenix

That's all that's listed on the official site at the moment.  Hopefully it'll do well enough in those cities to keep expanding.

Let's hope so.  There's a lot of stuff I gave up hope on ever making it out here that shows up months after initial release.  That's actually a pretty strong opening, hitting all the major markets in 2 weeks.  I'm pretty intrigued by the trailer and the idea.

There's also a great sequence where Sly drives his VW Beetle down the interstate for about 20 minutes, staring dramatically through the windshield.."-Joe Bob on A MAN CALLED RAMBO

Werner Herzog the whatBuggedout

I couldn't disagree more, but in the context of the article it makes sense. Well, sort of.

As for Herzog, I have mixed feelings about his latest output. "Grizzly man" was amazing, but "Rescue dawn" felt surprisingly stale, even more so considering it's based on actual events and that Herzog himself told the same story much better in "Little Dieter needs to fly", in which he achieved the feat of transforming an actual, living person, into a creature Klaus Kinski would have been proud to play.

But considering that this remake could have been his cinematical grave and that instead I don't stop hearing good reviews, I'm starting to build some serious expectations here. The original is a masterpiece, and a film so unconfortable to watch I haven't set eyes on it since it was first released in VHS. And if anybody could remake it and make a good movie, well, that would be Herzog.

Due to the horrifying nature of this film, no one will be admitted to the theatre.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
