The Wingnut Goes to the Big Screen to Fight Against the Green Things

"We've come a long way, but we have got to get going like the tuff do when the going gets going tuff and things are really difficult and we fight anyways."

--Director Phil "Hambone" Merrimac--

This is typical of American Cinema of the 50s. I like the angles that the cinematographer, Harold Klingster, chose for this.

Mr. Jarmusch, you do realize that you began and ended your sentence with the word this? O, how easily a shape-shifter can be spotted. We have tracked your computer's ISP number. We should be at your door in 5, 4, 3, 2...

I'm not going to open the door. Go away. No, go away.

This film, though thoughtfully existential, lacks the nuansce of the truly great films, ghostbusters II, over the top, and the like, but I must say there is an overall brilliance that drives the film home in the end.

The final sequence in which the young boy turns to his wolf friend to say good bye forever is quite moving. The wolf won't go. She loves Peatar far too much. I cried when the boy threw the rock at the wolf, saying "go on and get now, get to your kind in the wild." I was crying profusely.

The part where the main Wingnut got on stage at the dance to play "Johnny Be Good" Was my favorite.

an emotional thriller it kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time the ending was a real shocker similair to the early works of kubrick
with a hint of jarrowdowski

although i didnt too much care for the muppets in the end
