I dunno, I'd give Videodrome 10/10 and Scanners 5/10. Videodrome is one of my favourites.

Well, Videodrome didn't blew my mind at all... One of my least favorites by Cronenberg.

Sorry to join in with the you're-wrong-fest, but you really are so wrong. Scanners is second tier Cronenberg for me, which puts it below Rabid, Shivers, Crimes of the Future and Videodrome, but above The Fly (debatably) and a long way above anything he's done in the last ten years. It's about on a par with The Brood, Dead Ringers or The Dead Zone for me.

Scanners is pretty boring, it's not even the best movie in the Scanners series for christ's sakes! (Scanners IV: Scanner Cop being the best)

The Fly is my favorite... I just have a different taste in Cronenberg movies I guess (also, I REALLY like his recent work).

Well, holy shit. That pretty much floored me. I need to ruminate a bit before I know what I really think, but DAMN, at the very least it was somehow unlike anything else I've seen before. I highly recommend you see it, but there's no way I'm going to be able to describe now in a way that wouldn't belittle it.

10/10. Probably.

I like everything Cronenberg has done recently. Interesting how The Dead Zone and Dead Ringers is second tier to you though demonrail... they are some of my favourites!

I don;t know why people actively want to watch movies like that one (girl next door)
I find absolutely nothing to gain by being shown on film what happens every day, what I read in the papers and news sites. That movie seems more pointless, more like "horror porn" than any SAW or Hostel flick.

I refuse to watch GIRL NEXT DOOR just based on how many ppl I've known that were disgusted by it. I just feel like it's wrong.

I heard the Ellen Page version of the same story is done a lot better, and a lot less tortureporny.

In my case I had no clue. I had never read about the case. I don't watch the news, I don't read the newspaper. I just saw true story and I love to watch true stories. Once I started I was locked in by absolute brutality of the story.

I have hard time believing that anyone else can do a better job with the material. Yes it was disgusting but that's the way it happened no sugar coating no hollywood cuts to get a pg-13 rating.

I dont think the other movie was a PG13 family version man. I just think it was done without making you sick.

yeah, but what's the point?

if it is to be "educated" surely it can be done without such graphic and disturbing recreations (I hate watching rapes in films)
If it is to be scared, surely there was no need to make it feel like one was watching a true crime
if it is just to be entertained, then what does that say about someone who seeks their entertainment from such twisted shit? that is like entertainment for dahmer, ed gein, nightstalker, etc.

(none of this is aimed at you chicka, just questions I have about such movies

I hated straw dogs tooo

I love Cronenberg's films of the last 10 years. I'd rate "Crash" and "Eastern Promises" among his best. "Videodrome" still wins though.

Just re-watched "Brazil". Gilliam is overrated. I love "The Fisher King" though.
