    Saw Ink recently and really dug it. Actings not the greatest but I thought it was fairly original for scifi/fantasy stuff.

    Maybe it's just my dislike for hippies, and Joan Baez, but I hated this movie. Damn that hippie...

    If hippies didn't exist, people like me would likely do less damage to the environment just to spite them. So really, hippies are bad for the earth. Think about it.

    You think hippies are bad at your local university, coffee shop, or organic foods market? Try dealing with f*cking space hippies. No thanks.

    Walter Hill's Southern Comfort.

    When critics appraise Hill's films, they often seem to focus favourably on The Warriors , to the detriment of Southern Comfort, which is great too.

    Also, David Cronenberg's The Brood.
