hey Brad get this, on a sharing site i belong to someone posted Nukie on it. and here's the thank you that someone posted about it. Warning make sure you aren't eating or drinking anything cause you'll not going to believe this.


NUKIE is finally here!!! thanks so much for perhaps the best south african sci-fi movie that was ever made! smileysmileysmiley

p.s.: i know that some consider it the worst of the worst, but this "critics" surely have biltong for brains

Now, years after I saw the Snob review to it, I finally just watched "Nekromantik", the German film about humping corpses and collecting body parts.

I don't love this movie, I don't hate it. I can understand that it has some cult status but to be honest, it's not a very good movie.
It could have taken more necromantic action and no bunny killing at all (the biggest point I can complain about is the senseless killing and skinning of this animal. Even if somebody just filmed it while the rabbit was butchered for food or something I don't get the context here). When the movie tries to be artsy it slightly fails, mostly whenever the vision gets so blurry during the sex scene. Also the music sometimes is silly as well as the acting. I would rewatch this someday but rather alone, like today Wink

And in hindsight I think the Snob still did a good review on this. And he's right about some things (like the nice music or the ridiculous death scene of the protagonist including ejaculating).

i'm not an animal person so them killing animals makes no difference to me. i'm not saying i want people to treat their pets like shit though either. so when these films do stuff like that i don't think about it at all. but that's just me. as for why films do it shock value i think. weather you think it works or if it does work is debatable either way. if i was to make a film i prolly wouldn't kill an animal just cause i'm not an animal person. though i do love Lloyd though. who doesn't ? but that's my guess is shock Value. a film like Nekomantik or the Violent shit films

are made for shock value but even just going by brad's snob reviews they all fail at at it. if you look at Cannibal Holocaust where there's that scene with the dead animal i don't think i had ever even heard of the film before i saw brad review it. and as much as that scene is hated to animal lovers and i understand why don't get me wrong. the shock value in essence worked cause it's still being talked about 35 years later. now did it need to be in there? no it did not. but the effect still worked. now when films like Neckromantik does it that's them i think trying to go for shock value but like i said failing. and unlike people hearing about Cannibal Holocaust most people have never never heard of the violent shit film or the nekromantik films either cause they aren't films that any place by us that carries them even back in the VHS days. that's what i think anyways.

I think the "sex with corpse" theme should be the main shock value of this movie. The rabbit being killed just distracts and makes the necrophilia scenes somehow seem less shocking or disgusting. Another reason why it actually shouldn't be in it.

oh i'm not disagreeing on why they put it in it. i was only guessing on why. Nekromantik is also a film i'll never watch and though i love going back and watching Brad's old video's that's about the closest i'll get to watch it is his video. and for certain video's i'm grateful for the black box. he he that's one of them

Haven't bought anything, but if it looks interesting and I can find it on youtube/netflix/pornhub, then I'll check it out.

Got CHATTERBOX in the Shout! Factory four pack with three other films. Watched it earlier. Decent, but didn't expect anything spectacular. Such a bizarre concept. The leading lady is likable, and you want to see her happy. Lots more nudity, too.

No, because most of the films he reviews don't exactly have high quality releases of them (and I'm kinda picky about that), and the ones that do, well, I probably already own most of them.

I do want to get Heaven's Gate tho, but I don't know if I should get the Criterion or the French release.

really why? you are missing so many great films just because of picture quality. there's literally millions of movies and i'm prolly over stating the number that are lesser known and will prolly never got remastered because the fan base for certain films are so small. i'm picky as fuck when i watch films on one thing, it has to be letterboxed but here's the catch NOT everything is letterboxed because there again is no audience for it. an example is Christopher Lee's (1976) film "The Keeper though i have that sucker on VHS it's a film that i really doubt will ever be put on DVD or Blu-ray

or any format at all because it's a lesser known film and unless you are a fan of the cast or anyone who worked on the film a die hard fan the fan base no doubt for that one is very small so watching that pan & Scan is an option i have to live with and accept. it's not shot in 2:35 anyways it's to throw a guess 1:85 or 1:66 but i'm just guessing on that and this is without looking up the ratio. so a film like that will never be released on anything but VHS. as Josh Hadley has said and i think Brad maybe to on how there's a shit ton of movies that will never get any release on any format outside of VHS because everything came out on VHS back than. there was a market for it back than too so that made sense but there's so many films out of print on that format and hard to find that there's no chance of seeing certain films unless you do what i do and that's to download them off the net.

so the quality for me isn't always an option at all. i love love watching films after they were remastered and looking at what the film looked like before. i'm all for that 100% but than if i find a rare as fucking film such as Letty Lynn and old one from (1932) that i downloaded off the net a few years back that one doesn't have the greatest film quality and it's because it's never been on any formant and it's never been touched up upon either because when it 1st came out back than the writer who wrote the book it was based off of hated the film.

and sued MGM to have it not shown anywhere in fact i think the film was pulled at it's release back than. it's an early Joan Crawford film. and i don't think as far as i know that TCM has even ever aired it but than i could be wrong. so i'm happy as hell to have a copy of that film. i have no idea if that lawsuit is still viable after all these years. but it would not surprise me at all if it still is. my point is with this ramble sorry about that, is you are missing out on lot of really great movies because picture quality is important.

as for Chatterbox i downloaded that one a few years back because the poster art for it Sean made me curious to see it cause i had at the time never even heard of it. i forget what the remark about the film about it was. but i haven't watched it yet funny enough. and i wasn't a Snob Fan at the time either.
