i finally got it, it was out of stock.
nice to finally see it in widescreen glory.
i've listened to the first 30 minutes of the PTA/PBH commentary.
i didn't know what to think when he started out singing from the get go.
i guess i need to see Melvin and Howard and Bob LeFlambeur.

i think it's hilarious when John asks for a bucket in the casino. i also like the velcro shoe strapping before leaving the room with Sydney.
I am Torgo. I take care of the place while the Master is away.

Fuck Melvin and Howard. You need to see Melvin goes to dinner. Odenkirk>>>Demme.
Let's go to a motel. We don't have to do anything -- we could just swim.

Melvin and Howard is indeed overrated and much too 80s.

I think that peeps are all about it just cause PTA mentioned it. Is it just me, or does PTA not know shit about movies?

Just because of his allegedly-misguided Demme worship?  (I wouldn't know myself -- never seen anything of Demme's, never been inclined to even though PTA loves him.)

The corpses all hang headless and limp bodies with no surprises and the blood drains down like devil’s rain we’ll bathe tonight I want your skulls I need your skulls I want your skulls I need your skulls Demon I am and face I peel to see your skin turned inside out, ’cause gotta have you on my wall gotta have you on my wall, ’cause I want your skulls I need your skulls I want your skulls I need your skulls collect the heads of little girls and put ’em on my wall hack the heads off little girls and put ’em on my wall I want your skulls I need your skulls I want your skulls I need your skulls

Touche'.  Haha.

On topic, I like Hard Eight.  I really, really do.  Not 'cause it's a PTA movie.  But it's one of those you can just throw in and watch over and over again.  I did that with this and Boogie Nights over the last week.  Listened to both the commentaries.  I learn something new every time.
