Just watched "Romper Stomper":

[m.imdb.com]


It has a very surreal and somewhat apocalyptic visual tone; the costumes, buildings, cars, makeup, etc. gave me a very surreal, almost creepy/nightmarish feeling. Though perhaps that's just what 1990's Melbourne does to me, who knows?

I enjoyed the characters, which were believable and realistic, they just seemed like a standard bunch of wayward people who carry around a tremendous amount of hatred for a perceived enemy. Russel Crowe, I thought, was actually quite good in this. His appearance and outward emotional projection throughout the film seemed to fit his character very well.

I enjoyed the dark and cynical story. It was interesting and believable because it lacked any obvious heroes or villains, and instead portrayed simply a dark and psychopathic man who leads other dark and broken people down a path that leads to a remarkably bleak ending. I often enjoy movies that have no happy endings because it's much more realistic to me. This is certainly not some kind of fairytale.

In short, I'd give it a solid Pass. Not quite a Pass +, but a decent movie for sure.

Nice breakdown. I liked this movie quite a bit.

I will look into those shows Chum. Also strange about the monitoring and posting thing.

Sorry Chum, the system held up your message. I just approved it so if there is any duplication that is why.

I am watching Invincible right now, I am just starting ep 4.
