I think a good subtitle for this film would've been "Ruining the First Film."

Anyone else see it and think it was garbage? Garbage that invalidated the entire first one? Anyone? Did I miss flaming the movie to death last weekend? Could be a little late to the party here...

Planning on seeing it when it opens here. Liked the first one.

The first one almost had me throw up. The second one, not as much, though I did cringe at the end. I don't think it was as good, storywise, and since he doesn't plan on making a third one, there's no real closure.

The first one almost had me throw up.

Reading the summary of the first one on Wiki almost made me throw up. I can't handle near that level of violence.

I can read Stephen King without a problem, I have assisted in surgeries where yards of cat intestine had to be pulled out to find little bits of chewed-up telephone cord ... but when it comes to movies, I just can't do it.

Paxton dies! Read the Wikipedia entry. Why did Eli Roth have to do that? Couln't he bring other characters and leave Paxton alone?

Also, the new heroine becomes one of the bad guys at the end? What the mother**** f*ck! Who wrote that script? Quentin Tarantino? Because it's just as bad as the stuff he writes.

Eli Roth wrote it. And, yeah, that's what I meant about ruining the first one. "He got away! Oh, wait, no he didn't..."

Which one's Paxton?

I saw the first movie and didn't care for it. Watching Eli Roth movies, I almost get the impression he's masturbating furiously behind the camera.

He was the lead that didn't die. In the first movie.

Then everything just goes black. Credits roll.

(It's a type of ending commonly known as a soprano ending).

Oh man, it's like the joke I made, only funnier because it's the same and it's explained!

Just don't do that to M. Nicholai.

He'll kill you if you step on his jokes. Kill the hell out of you.

Since you're asking for spoilers *SPOILERS AHOY*

You see, and I mean full-on SEE a fucking CASTRATION. Cock and balls in one snip. It was disturbing as hell. And the heroine basically becomes one of the bad guys.

I thought it was just the cock that got cut off. Of course, I spent part (most) of that scene looking away.

That's what's so shocking about the ending? Man, welcome to 1976 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/In_the_Realm_of_the_Senses).

At first I saw "1776", and I was all "Man, I don't remeber that in the William Daniels or Brent Spiner version!"

Well, whether it was in another foreign movie 31 years ago or not, it's still excessive and fucking disturbing. Not to mention that make-up effects have come a long way in the last 31 years, so it looks alot more real than I imagine it does in Realm of the Senses.

Oh yeah, I mean, I believe that it's handled in a graphic and disturbing way and that it's a very effective scene. It's just that I've been hearing a lot of talk about how shocking the ending is, so when I found out what it was I thought, "Oh. Well, okay, I've seen that before, and in a movie based on a true story." I was reacting more to the advertising of the film than the film itself.

I honestly haven't been keeping track of the advertising. I loved the first one so much, I ran out to see the second on opening day. One of my bigger regrets...
