-It didn't really have any interesting characters. Patrick Stewart has a creepiness to him but it's not like he's all over the movie or anything. He does the best. Anton Yelchin's most interesting moment is how he reacts to having his hand crushed (this is not a roundabout reference to his death, I swear.) Don't tell me Imogen Poots played an interesting character. I didn't get into her.
-"Green room" indeed--I didn't know it was possible to film a movie with a flashlight covered in dark green cellophane, and I guess it isn't anyway, but this is the closest I can think of to that. Somehow I was reminded of Ebert's crack about how Heaven's Gate made him want to spray the screen with Windex.
-MAEBY EATEN BY WHITE-POWER ATTACK DOGS. I bet there will stupid corny references to this in Arrested Development Season 5: The Movie or whatever Hurwitz is cooking up right now. Or trying to cook up. It always seems to be floating around out there.
-Saulnier is really good with violence, I've got to say. That's what he's best at--gory/painful kills that he kind of gets over with fast.
-Blue Ruin was better. There's not really much point to this one, just a good thriller with an amusing "loser punk band finds itself in an actual situation with actual punks and doesn't know what to do" conceit.
