03:49 - !J.O.O.E.! Overall I enjoyed it, despite glaring and numerous plot holes and being a too long. But I think it could have been better if it didn't want to be too many things and concentrated on just a few. Joon-ho Bong's The Host was a better
03:47 - Darth Satanious ...out of place on purpose. It is like everything, some may find that something works and some may not. Fucking traffic control in the Shoutbox,
03:45 - !J.O.O.E.! True, but Battle Royale felt clearly rooted in satire, so they got away with it.
03:43 - Darth Satanious I think they wanted to put an interesting character with her, and I believe they succeded. Her place in Snow reminds me of that chick in the instructional video of Battle Royale. A weird, kind of eccentric character that feels...

03:40 - !J.O.O.E.! [SPOILERS] It's like on one hand, you have the serious and tragic tone of the film where babies were eaten etc, then on the other hand you have the caricatured, designed for humour character of Swinton. Not compatible imo.
The performance of the band members was great.
And their positive energy too.
But I can't say the same thing about the sound system of the concert hall, we couldn't hear the cellos well,

Beyond that, they did only play 'Seemann' from the Reflections album.
I wish they played 'Toreador II' at least.. But it was not in the setlist.
They played a hell lot of Metallica.
I had fun, I shouted a lot and applaused a lot, to welcome them, to show the respect they deserve.
My voice is gone, my neck is aching.
