The Gene Generation
« on: May 30, 2008, 03:52:53 PM »
Has anybody seen this movie?  I thought there was already a thread about this, don't tell me that it was on the old board.  Anyway I heard Combichrist - Get Your Body Beat and it reminded me of the movie.  If it is worth watching anyone know where to get it?  Their websites aren't the easiest to navigate if they have a buy link on there somewhere.

Looks like it is playing in San Francisco this June.  Roxie

They say world premiere so I guess none of you have seen it it.  I wonder if it is worth the 4 hr drive there for a 90 minute movie.

I was pretty pumped for it and then they got their release date pushed back about thirty fucking times and I just stopped caring. Still, I'd like to at least see it.

It's at blockbuster me thinks. I saw it. Ya, not good. But the music video was cool! I actually got a chance to talk to Andy about it during an interview for his new album. He said the process has been a total nightmare and that the movie is like a "dark shadow" hanging over him. lol.

Now u wanna see a good movie, Repo

Repo, weird, I am intrigued.  I don't think I'll like it but I'll have to watch it now.

Loved it. Soundtrack by the 16volt dude. Never thought I'd see Ogre and Paris Hilton in the same video (of any genre), but there they are. Ogre plays a horror cliche (badly) and Paris plays a spoiled junkie-heir to a powerful corporate empire (very well).

I had my hope up really high for this movie, and I must say I was let down. Now I still like the movie but I like it in a cheesy drive-in B Sci-Fi kinda of way. It has a lot of goofy acting and the story is kinda out their and they don't explain a whole lot. But for the most part it was an alright movie, not wroth buying maybe worth renting if you're board.

Well I got a chance to watch Gene Generation the other day.  yeah, story wasn't that great.  Not near enough action.  But I did like the world, the locations and costumes.

I got my hands on Repo! also, I'll watch it soon, hopefully.

I actually really liked both The Gene Generation AND Repo!.

Fun thing about TGG, not only is the Get Your Body Beat vid on the DVD, but there's also a Combichrist song in like...EVERY scene. The visual world in The Gene Generation is amazing. The story WAS a bit cheesey....but I still LOVE it. Amazing.  Just watch it.
