Sounds cool - so THE APPLE it is, on Saturday night, or sometime this weekend.  Or whenever everybody gets around to it  TeddyR

Anyone else have an XBOX 360? With netflix you can get in a party chat and it puts you in a little movie theater with other people who are watching it. Then it will buffer the movie for everyone at the same time. Really kind of cool. If you have a headset you can talk to other people too and emote while in the little theater.

My friend and I watched Monsturd on it. Bad times.

When Netflix becomes available up here, I'd be up for it. I'd also love to possibly play a round of something afterward (I have all these games with online multiplayer, but I've had some bad experiences with playing with random people).

OK, anyone besides me watch THE APPLE?

This was not half as "bad" as I'd been warned.  It's obvious commercial inspiration was THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW; it's an attempt to make a deliberate midnight movie.  It's not completely successful, but it really is pretty watchable.  The plot's easy to follow, the songs are actually catchy, and the psychedelic sets and costumes give you something to watch all the time.  Even though there was a disco/glam-rock look to it, it seems like something that should have been made in 1969.  The ending is terrible, though!  Wow!  I'd give it 2.5/5, but I couldn't really argue if someone wanted to give it either 1 or 5 stars!

My bad movie watching is largely limited by family obligations and a heavy work and school schedule, so I may not be able to catch this one, but goodness, The Apple looks amazing. I've never even heard of it. The one and only George Clinton helped with the music. I shall do my best.


That is George S Clinton who did the music for this movie.



THE George Clinton (Dr. Funkenstein) often gets confused with George S Clinton.

When Netflix offers a streaming client for Linux, I'd jump all over this.(**)

Until then, I'll have to put the flick in the queue and hope I watch it somewhere "near" the time selected.

(**) DRM is the devil..I want to legally watch movies I am paying to rent, not steal them and distribute them.

I use Ubuntu on my laptop and I have a Virtual Box image of XP that I use for Netflix streaming and a couple of other apps that are Windows only. The quality is pretty good even on a virtual machine.

Count me as one of the confused. I really wanted it to be George "P-Funk" Clinton. Damn.

I watched it last night!  I thought the songs were pretty awful... SPEED! what?  Maybe I need to understand disco more?  I loved the costumes!  I wish 1994 was really like that.   I wanted it to be more fun, but there was too much trouble between Alphie and Bibi and I was too upset to fully enjoy how fabulous everyone looked.. and then the hippies came and ruined everything.  I was fighting falling asleep the whole time so I don't think I could fairly rate it.. I would give it the lowest 2 ever as it stands.

I do agree the Apple should of been made in 1969, it might of made more sense, although the story seemed too much disco for a hippy movie and seemed to cash-in with Saturday Night Fever (1977), Thank God It's Friday (1978) and The Wiz (1978) fans. Although I'm not sure if the movie script was complete or the director was told to wrap it up. The ending is 3 to 4 years later? And is Alphie breast feeding? (Ok he's not but it sure looks like he is).

I'm not sure where did Mr. Topps come from, I do admit the movie was hard to watch and my eyes were getting sleepy at times (or maybe I did sleep thru a scene or two).

actually Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band (1978) has a better take on evil record company and other strangness.

At one point I think they mentioned that a year had passed between when Alphie and Bibi reunited.  But there was nothing to clue the audience in on the fact that we were about to flash forward into the future (and was there any real reason to?)  Mr. Topps came out of nowhere (they probably should have set him up with some foreshadowing somewhere along the line).  The ending was really rushed; it's like they suddenly realized they only had five minutes left to wrap this thing up!  It was clearly the worst, most insane part of the movie, which up until then I thought was more like a second tier "midnight movie" than a typical "bad movie."

lol... actually towards the ending when the "shield police" ambushed the Hippies they said there was a warrent for Bibi's arrest and I think her husband said she's been with me over a year.

But the boy/girl Alphie was carrying was at least 3 years old (not to mention his long beard).

Finally watched it last night and, much to my astonishment, I enjoyed it quite a bit  TeddyR  The music was great, it's been about 20 years since I heard rock music performed by actual musicians - that was a real treat.  The characters were pretty good, although the whole character development via song didn't really make me feel like I knew them too well, but I guess it got the job done.  It was great to see that these folks actually had something to say that wasn't just the usual boilerplate PC rubbish.  I enjoyed the story, wacky as it was.  The ending...yeah.  As soon as that flying car showed up I'm like WTF?.  I'll still give it a 4/5 though.  I had a fun time, and it was definitely something I wouldn't have normally watched.   Thumbup

Any suggestions for next week's movie?
