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

city on fire is really good, it shares a similar plot with Resevoir Dogs and there are some scenes that do resemble one another, but Resevoir Dogs is done with so much more style.  City on Fire is like a gritty police drama, Ringo Lam even shot it with a lot of handheld for this type of documentary/ news footage feel.  So the tone between the two movies is totally different.  Plus City on Fire focuses on Chow YunFat and his relationship with the cops and the thieves while Dogs gives the thieves so much more individuality and scenes.

Why people claim Boondock Saints to be the "greatest movie [they've] ever seen" is completely beyond me. I don't see it to be that much of a Tarantino ripoff because Tarantino can make good movies.

I've never seen Boondock Saints but it seems to be the new movie that all the frat boys watch.

Heh heh.

Yup, this movie sucks.  I think the part I cringed the most from was when they slipped in through the ceiling, suspended from ropes, and took all the gangsters out.  

Blech.

Yeah, everytime I think that maybe the movie isn't so bad, I always think about that. Especially since the characters claim it to be an accident, one of the brothers even says "stuff like that only happens in the movies". barf.

It seems like the writer/director only made the movie to hold his over-the-top slow motion action sequences.

i hated hated hated boondock saints.  first of all, i heard about it from about 4 or 5 different unrelated people so by the time i finally got around to watching it, i thought it might be some little gem that went unrecognized upon release.  but no, it was awful awful shite.  and troy duffy SOOOOOOOOOO wished he was tarantino i thought it was the mid-ninties again with all the pulp wannabes.  and willem dafoe was clearly acting in a different film from the rest of the cast, not that its the first time...  speed 2 anyone?  (the infamous leeches scene)
