    "That woman, deserves her revenge and we deserve to die".

    Understand this was intended and shot as one film before Harvey Weinstein demanded it was split into two films.

    But the difference between Vol 1 and Vol 2 was prevalent for me. Rewatching both parts after what feels like over a decade burst an assumption I had based on what everyone says.

    I think Vol 2 is so much stronger. I never really felt the weight or heart of the…

    Wild At Heart is one of my least favourite David Lynch films. I admire it more than I love it. Nicolas Cage and Laura Dern are fine, but feel they don't exactly carry the film. It was also heavily censored before its release and I feel some scenes feel incomplete. With some glimpses of brilliance (Nic Cage moshing in a death metal gig wearing that snake skin jacket and the Wizard Of Oz homage ending), but it feels too mild…

    This is much longer than the usual Marx Bros films and it feels that length? Ugh.

    The Marx Bros act slower than usual and their comedy is sacrificed by
    the story, which is literally that "we gotta save this building from being taken over by the bad guys" stock plot? Uuuuugh.

    The two non-Marx romantic leads are absolutely boring and have songs that go on WAAAAY too long? Uuuuuuuuuuuugh.

    A scene where a large group of black people show up…

    How could a story about a priest committing as much evil as he could to prevent the apocalypse happening and the Antichrist being born, be so funny and at times moving? Fans of The Frighteners would love the whole vibe of this. The premise alone is genius, and even better, the director takes it in directions you might not be predicting,

    Thank you Severin for releasing this. It's one of the best horror comedies of the 1990's if not ever.

    A perfect balance between the Marx Brothers' surreal manic comedy with a genuinely great love story. Did not feel one was distracting the other. That third act was nuts.
