THE PREPOSTEROUS BOLLOX OF THE SITUATION

A collection of stuff, things, nonsense, rants, raves, pretties, sillies, and gee-gaws from Rev. Hugo Nebula, Ordained Minister of the Church of the SubGenius. (And boobs. Sometimes there are boobs. Just like in real life.) Thank you for reading.

And now, here’s the title sequence from Repo Man, with music by Iggy Pop

Submitted by Trino

"The creator of Repo Man and Sid & Nancy directs a feature comedy based on Harry Harrison’s classic anti-war science fiction novel

"BILL, THE GALACTIC HERO is a feature-length science fiction comedy set in the far reaches of our galaxy, as humans wage war against a reptilian alien species, known as Chingers. It is extremely low budget, and relatively high concept. How is a story of space warfare between two high-technology civilizations to be achieved, doing justice to its original, on a super-low budget?"

"To celebrate this week’s Blu-ray release (in the UK at least) of Repo Man, director Alex Cox reflects on the 1984 cult classic, subsequent battles with Hollywood and Hunter S. Thompson, and why it’s fine to pirate his work…”

1. Movie you love with a passion.

  • First thought was to write in Star Wars, but it’s such an obvious answer, and - in all honesty - I’d have to say that the passion (and by God, once it was a white-hot, fiery passion) has dimmed over the last few years for reasons that should be obvious.

    So, I may have to go with something like Blade Runner or Repo Man. Or The Big Lebowski. Something that rewards in different ways each time you watch it.

    No, scrap that - The Fountain.

2. Movie you vow to never watch.

  • The Sound of Music. I’ve made it this far, it would be a shame to fail now.

3. Movie that literally left you speechless.

  • Fight Club. It had passed me by in the cinema, and I was lent it - forcefully - by a friend, in that “Man, you have got to fucking watch this!” fashion.

    What a film. I watched it twice in a row, gave it back with great thanks and then bought my own copy on DVD that same night. 

4. Movie you always recommend.

  • Gremlins. You can’t go wrong recommending Gremlins. Or Back To The Future.

5. Actor/actress you always watch, no matter how crappy the movie.

  • I watched Mammoth, starring Summer Glau. For which she must also owe me dinner.

6. Actor/actress you don’t get the appeal for.

  • Robert DeNiro. I just can’t see it. He has the same tics and mannerisms for every role he plays. That’s not acting.

7. Actor/actress, living or dead, you’d love to meet.

  • Robert Mitchum.

8. Sexiest actor/actress you’ve seen. (Picture required!)

 

9. Dream cast.

  • Philip Seymour Hoffman, Penelope Cruz, Richard Dreyfuss and Winona Ryder.

10. Favorite actor pairing.

  • Richard E. Grant and Paul McGann. 

11. Favorite movie setting.

  • Jim Henson’s Labyrinth.

12. Favorite decade for movies.

  • The Seventies. Before it all went wrong.

13. Chick flick or action movie?

  • Action movie, although I have been known to watch the occasional chick flick. Depends on the chick.

14. Hero, villain or anti-hero?

  • Anti-hero.

15. Black and white or color?

  • Don’t mind. Great love for black and white movies, though.

Alex Cox’s seminal punk-sci-fi movie Repo Man appears to be available in its entirety on YouTube. If you have never see it, you have been missing out.
