Movie Review: Priest

In the future, we will have vinyl.

Okay, so in all seriousness, I enjoyed the movie for its MST3K possibilities more than anything else. I think the dialogue all came directly from the manga. It needed more Karl (though whenever Karl was onscreen, the movie was SO much better). There are logic holes aplenty, and also Doom wants its critters back. I giggled a lot, and now I'm watching Doctor Who and trying not to think about the forthcoming insanity that is BHW.

Here, have some bonus outtake stuff, hat-tip to tocourtdisaster:

Hee, I've heard from io9 and a few other reviewers that it's AWFUL.

Some intrepid fangirl will cap the KU bits and I'll download it. WHILE I GO WATCH THOR LIKE FIFTEEN TIMES.

It's not awful, it's just....really not good. But Karl's bits = UNF!

Hey, at least it was better than Legion, right?

Never saw Legion (I like Paul Bettany, but not that much).

I will however watch anything with Karl in it. ;)

Legion was, quite frankly, terrible. Even Paul Bettany being all BAMF couldn't fix it.

I have a huge backlog of Karl films to still go through. Thank god for Netflix. ;)

I know it can't really be much good, but I want to watch it anyway! *shakes head at obvious masochistic streak*

Is THIS why you keep giggling? :D

Yeah, that's about the size of it. But oh, Karl. I'd bare my throat to him anytime.

Dude, I JUST NOW realized that as a Priest, Karl was supposed to be celibate, and that strikes me as like the WORST THING EVER! I mean, WHAT A WASTE!

He was a priest with a sexception for the good of all.

(We hope!)

Like seriously, wouldn't that go SO much towards his characterization of flipped out human vamp! Cos if I was a celibate who had to eat crummy food in aerosol cans, fuck YEAH I'd have my Soul Train with the inexplicable duck 'n' strawberries and hottiness!!

I am torn about going and seeing this - I might go and watch it at the student cinema when it turns up because it won't cost the earth :)

And pretty pics! :D

Dude! How wrong is it that just NOW I realized that since Karl's character was a Priest, he was supposed to be celibate, and I find the prospect of celibate!Karl to be like the most horrifying thing ever?!

and also Doom wants its critters back *SNORFL*

It was soooo bad, I can't wait for it to come to DVD so that the ladies at jim_and_bones can Fast Forward Theatre it for us.

And, damn, that picture! UNF!

oooooh. I might have to volunteer to do that when it comes out, if I'm not overrun with RL at the time. Cos yeah, I was snarking Most Fiercely in my head while watching.

I loved it. I thought it was really well done, and I liked the camera work, yes it needed more Karl. But it was a damn good western.


I also think they where gunning for a sequel, and that Karl and the queen survived but that could just be me and my friend Danny.
