I'm a fan of the early 70's Coop, and as so I've always wanted to hear the first album and now I'm glad I never did. The first effort is so disjointed and without direction, that it's amazing when you hear the second album Easy Action, which starts to give you a preview of coming attractions with references to West Side Story, a subject brought up again later on Schools Out. So listen to this and wonder at the jump made from this to Easy Action to Love it to Death,Killer,Schools Out,Billion Dollar Babies and finally Muscle of Love which for me is the last album, I know Welcome to my Nightmare is liked by many, it was a little too soft and schlocky for me, to each their own.
Really very disappointing, not funny, not scarey and not interesting either.
Not many bands age well,especially so called big star acts, really good bands that get ignored by the radio and corporations just seem to fade away with time. Wire is a band I thought was done, my mistake, on their recent release Red Barked Tree they seem to have slowed down a little but the words and music is still great. So, do yourself a favor and throw that gaga cd out your car window and pop in Red Barked Tree, select track 4, crank it up and head on down the road, happy to have your brain back.
I wanted to like this movie, but man come on. I've seen this same story like five different times. It couldn't seem to make up it's mind what it was, a spoof or a serious action film, so like a restaurant that offers everything it does nothing right. I did like how the action sequences were done with a slow and steady movement, instead of the usual shaky cam and jerky editing. I would suggest renting "Lone Wolf and Cub" to see this storyline done right.
I found this movie/teenage boy fantasy to be offensive on a whole range of levels. The action and the story are completely predictable and obvious. Avoid this garbage, the Watchmen movie was below average, but this is even worse, who keeps giving Mr. Snyder money for this crap.
