From The Mailbag Mid November 2010 EditionWow, this month is flying by, or maybe it's not going by fast enough. For me, it's going by tremendously slow. I have no job, no future, and sold my comic book collection this week for money...ugh...I don't want to remind myself. Here's the comments up to this point.

Spot on review to be honest mate. I am a huge fan of Rob Zombie's stuff but i just really did not enjoy this movie as i have all the others. It feels like this was a rush job. I may have got it wrong but the amount of effort and overpowerwing madness in part 1 seemed like a different director to this picture. I just wish he would have left if 5 years or something and just come back with another Classic. Dont get me wrong obviously the originals will always win the battle of the greatest but in the same field i must admit Robs version was just brilliant i think. Part 2 like you say had alot of missing "oomph" or story as ya say. Overall i really wanted to enjoy this and waited untill this weekend to watch it. I just felt let down and was pretty gutted it did not reach the expection's in which i had for it.
Nevertheless, I still hold Zombie in high regard and look forward to all of his work as visually alone it was watching because the guy is so out his brain.
I SALUTE YOU ROB ! Just dont rush the magic bruv!

I liked it enough. I don't like the tone of the film, looking back, just bad director of photography at times. Other than that? It was a brutal film, that's about all I can recall from it.

I wish Lifeforce had been American made instead of British then it might have been a good film. By the way, i want to bugger Mathilda May (as she was at the time Lifeforce was made, not as she is now obviously).
I hear ya...I always hear ya...I like Lifeforce enough...but I love the video game more.
jervaise brooke hamster said in regards to my "Saw 3D Review":
Sir Jorge, i think entertain-girl-t is all you should be concerning yourself with when reveiwing films, most horror movies are not scary but they are marvellously entertaining and thats the most important thing, horror films ceased to be scary a long time ago but they are still by far the most entertaining genre of all (with science fiction a close second), always remember that when watching a horror movie entertain-girl-t is the most important thing not being scared.
Yeah, entertainment is key...but sometimes, I get tired of the genre.
Bleeding Dead said in regards to my "Saw 3D Review":
To answer your question no Saw 3D is not the last in the series. Because the word's "final" are being promoted here expect at least one more sequel and then a remake.
I.e. The Final Friday: Jason Goes to Hell - Jason X, Friday the 13th (2009).
Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare - New Nightmare, Nightmare on Elm Street (2010).
Halloween H20: 20 Years Later - Halloween: Resurection, Halloween (2007).
I hope you're wrong, but like P.I.L. said...you could be wrong, you could be right.
Anonymous said in regards to my "Rob Zombie's Halloween 2 Review":
halloween 2 is awesome it is way better than the first remake and the original remake put together and is has crazy kills that are so bloody my only problem is that it is hard to know what is going on at times because it is so dark!
Yeah, I guess so.
jervaise brooke hamster said in regards to my "Wait Until Dark Review":
I always liked the relationship she had with the young girl Gloria in this film (Julie Herrod) it was so sweet and charming, in fact the scene where they make-up after Gloria throws the pots and pans is one of the most magical mo-girl-ts in the history of cinema.
That was an interesting dynamic indeed.
jervaise brooke hamster said in regards to my "Saw 3D Review":
bleeding dead over on your site it says you`re a hot chick so why are you using a picture of Uma Thur-girl for your profile?, i`d prefer to see one of you wearing a skimpi bikini, how about it baby. I`m sure Sir Jorge would agree.
Um...I don't really talk to either outside of this site, but if you guys have aim or something...I'll mediate the discussion ;) Especially if a bikini is involved! Woo....nevermind.
Bleeding Dead said in regards to my "Saw 3D Review":
Well jervaise your extensive list of celebrities of which you would bugger (as they were when they were 18, of course) was difficult to limit down. I was learning towards Nev Cambell since you expressed a more vivid description of what you'd do to her, specifically with your milt, but ultimately I decided to go with Uma in the light of her being in my favorite film.
jervaise brooke hamster said in regards to my "Rewind: The Wizard of Gore Review":
Sir Jorge, "The Wizard of Gore" might be difficult to watch but its still infinitely easier to endure than any British made pile of garbage you care to girl-tion.
I'd have to rewatch it to be sure.
On the Saw 3D Review there's more comments, that I'll just leave there...you can go read them instead of my commentary, cause I have none.
jervaise brooke hamster said in regards to my "Against the Dark Review":
I genuinely think this is Seagals best film because its the only one i know of where hes fighting against supernatural fantastic monster type foes rather than simply against other hu-girl beings. Its always better if the hero of a movie has to do battle with monsters or robots of some-kind rather than just against other people.
True. It very well maybe.
jervaise brooke hamster said in regards to my "Captivity Review":
I want to bugger that incredible bird (as she was in 2000 when she was 18, not as she is now obviously).
You should see the bloke she's going out with...lame to say the least.
otis rampaging heterosexuality said in regards to "Rewind: Videodrome Review":
Howard Shore is the Bernard Herr-girl of the synthesizer, his music for this film is as integral to its brilliance as Cronenbergs images.
Yes, you're right.
jervaise brooke hamster said in regards to my "Jennifer's Body Review":
I want to bugger Megan Fox (as she was in 2004 when she was 18, not as she is now obviously), i also want to bugger the other hot chick that was in this movie (also as she was at the age of 18, not as she is now obviously) i think her name is A-girl-da. By the way, on the poster i wish we`d seen white stuff coming out of Megan fox`s mouth instead of red stuff it would have been much better.
Eh, I don't really like her.
jervaise brooke hamster said in regards to my "Suspiria Review":
Once again i`ve never been able to see what all the fuss is about with regards to this movie, its ludicrously over-rated (like most of Argento`s films). By the way, i want to bugger Jessica Harper (as she was in 1967 when she was 18, not as she is now obviously).
Over rated? I don't know, I liked it, it had a lot of great color and gore.
elgart has left a new comment on your post "REWIND: Thankskilling Review":
Such an admirable accomplishment from a technical standpoint...
That's very true, the behind the scenes stuff on this film is interesting to say the least.
jervaise brooke hamster said in regards to my "Inseminoid Review":
Once again this could`ve been a great movie if it had been American made but because its British its garbage by definition. By the way, i want to bugger Judy Gee-daughter (as she was in 1966 when she was 18, not as she is now obviously) even if she is British rubbish.
This was such a weird movie. Man...1966 women? I'd like to go back in time.
jervaise brooke hamster has left a new comment on your post "Machete Review":
I wish the British film industry could produce something that was 100th as good or entertaining as any of the movies from the grindhouse era but they never will believe me. Sir Jorge dont be to keen to trash American films because even at their absolute worst they are still infinitely better than anything thats produced anywhere else in the world.
You're once again spot on.
jervaise brooke hamster said in regards to my "Cabin By The Lake Review":
Judd Nelson is a bloody load of old rubbish.
jervaise brooke hamster said in regards to my "The Curse of the Werewolf Review":
True, Yvonne Romain was absolutely astonishing, if i could have buggered her and tit-fucked her when she was 18 in 1956 i think my life would have been complete, Yvonne was truly incredible back in those days its just a shame she was British and had to spend her life acting in British garbage like this movie.
Oh come on, British garbage? Come on! This was at least watchable.
jervaise brooke hamster said in regards to my "Twins of Evil Review":
I want to bugger Madeleine and Mary (as they were at the time this movie was made, not as they are now obviously). Just imagine being in bed with both of those incredible little lustpots when they were both 18 in 1970 and performing every sex-act in the known universe on them for weeks or even months uninterupted, now thats heaven believe me. By the way, just another reminder, "Twins Of Evil" is garbage simply because it is British, dont forget alright !!!.
jervaise brooke hamster said in regards to my "The Vampire Lovers Review":
I want to bugger Madeleine Smith (as she was in 1967 when she was 18, not as she is now obviously) its just a shame that (just like Yvonne Romain) she was born British and had to spend her life appearing in unwatchable British garbage like this movie, i wish she and Yvonne had appeared in hard-core porn when they were both 18, it would have been so great to see those 2 unbelievable birds being buggered in POV.
I know what you mean, I really do.
jervaise brooke hamster said in regards to "Rob Zombie's Halloween 2 Review":
I actually think that Rob Zombie is a wothless pile of crap although his rampaging heterosexuality and the fact that he isn`t British do redeem him slightly obviously. By the way, Malcolm Mcdowell is a pathetic British turd although once again i think he has been completely heterosexual all his life so thats one good thing about him, BLOODY BRITISH GARBAGE.
Malcolm McDowell eh? I didn't even register it was him, until just now.
the sneering (homo-phobic) snob said in regards to "Clive Barker's Book of Blood Review":
One of the problems i always have with watching anything that Clive Barker is involved with is knowing that he is a faggot the bloody dirty pansy queer bastard, Hes also British filth so essentially what we have here is a double whammy of garbage. BLOODY DIRTY BRITISH PANSY FAGGOT FILTH.
Wow...wow....I've got nothing.
jervaise brooke hamster said in regards to "Return To Cabin By The Lake Review":
Judd Nelson is STILL a bloody load of old rubbish although i`d rather watch this movie than any British film you might care to name.
I'm drawing a blank, so you win.
jervaise brooke hamster has left a new comment on your post "Black Xmas Review":
I want to bugger Michelle Trachtenberg (as she was in 2003 when she was 18, not as she is now obviously).
You and me both.
jervaise brooke hamster said in regards to "Black Christmas Review":
The final scene of this film with the camera prowling around the supposedly empty house is the stuff of pure cinematic legend, it is pure brilliance.
I loved this film, and maybe will have to watch it again with the MRS. this year.
That's it for the comments, I think I missed a couple, but I don't care. This thing turned into the jervaise brooke hamster show, and that's not bad, thanks for the comments everyone. I'm going to go back to trying to get a job.....
