for those who have seen both, is the actual theatrical cut any different from the workprint?
Berries.... and what else?
Not much. Obvilously the effects were finished. I do think the Bathory bathtub scene showed a few frames more gore in the workprint. I can't say it for sure, but me and my GF both felt it was slightly trimmed.
All I can say is that any reviewer that carries on about how boring a film, I just can take seriously. That's purely subjective and something I would expect from a Micheal Bay worshiping teenager.
Has anyone seen the workprint thats floating around & has also seen the theatrical version? Just wondering if there any differences
I'm not a member of this club. Oops, did I stumble into the movie by accident when I paid $9 for it and enjoyed it? Am I now obligated to fellate a horror movie director?
See post #23.
For the record, I don't fellate Roth or any other director either. If you can't see the difference between liking someones movies and sucking their dick, you might need help.
I'll suck Eli's dick, sure. I enjoyed the first more, but this was much less by the numbers than a sequel of this sort could and should have been. It's not just girls in the guys' roles, there are a fair bit more moral dilemmas and torture facets not touched in the first film here. Roth listened to the complaints regarding the first, and definitely keeps a much more serious tone throughout, which should please every who :cry: about the first's comedic elements. Roth directs with an artistic hand, and demonstrates the restraint and release dance of horror better than anyone has here for a long time.
After the lame first five minutes tacked on BUG (which was actually the first five minutes after the first five minutes) this grossly exceeded my expectations. And I do mean grossly.
Will you at least perform cunnilingus on Edwige Fenech?
I enjoyed the shit out of it. The only thing I did not like was the stuff with Paxton. I got the same exact feeling as when they killed Hicks in Alien 3. He had gone through so much and I was hoping everything worked out for that guy, in one way or another. So I could've done without that.But I guess it also helped set up the much more grim and serious tone this one had. Much more bleak than the first one. There were many many points in the film where I thought that there was no hope for anyone.
I really liked Stuart's crack at the end and Todd's breakdown at what he had done. A real reversal of roles and it really caught me off guard. I honestly thought Stuart was going to save the day.
If we can have Paris Hilton doing the dirty, I reckon a link would be appropriate.
Is it possible to see this film and not be a member of this club, you know, juist treat it as just another movie? I think it's important to know before I get it and find myself face-to-face with an expectant geezer.
I think Eli is lurking at every theater, just waiting to see someone enjoying his film. As soon as he does and the credits roll, he corners you near the exit and drops trow, demanding you give praises due to "your new daddy".
Thankfully I had my trusty pipe and cronic with me which gave me a bargining tool. A bowl in the parking lot beats a shot in the mouth every time.:nervous:
Seriously though, you don't have to be sucking his dick to like his movies. I'm also somewhat sure that somewhere, there is someone, who doesn't fall on either the "hate or fellate" side. It could be you dwatts. Go and don't fear, I'll be spinning the workprint again later and smoking weed with Eli so you'll be safe to see if you can break the trend.
Whenever I went to go see Hostel 2, Eli Roth was actually there at the theater. I don't have so much of a problem with his movies. There's something he pointed out to the crowd; if Eli Roth wasn't making horror movies, would there be many good mainstream horror movies? Compared to crap like The Messangers and An American Haunting, I'll take whatever Eli Roth has to throw my way.
Hold up, are you saying he himself pointed that bit out to the crowd? Surely, a fanboy said that, right? :lol:
I think he's kind of an asshole and I'm not a big fan of his movies, but I'll suck his dick anyway.
I did enjoy Hostel, though, which I saw for the first time a couple days ago. Might go to see Hostel 2 in theaters if I am bored one day. Otherwise, I'll wait for the DVD.
I don't have a full review to show you, I saw one reviewers quote.
"Hostel is garbage, and Hostel II is that same garbage moved over about a foot on the ground."
Thought I share that classic quote.

I got the press screening of this film on dvd for view. Lucky to have great friends in the film industry. Sucks to wait over 3 months, but I will get it b/c of the cool features
Agreed, I really enjoyed all of the commentaries included with the first film (especially the one with Tarintino). I hope these will be just as entertaining.
