    "You ever feel like your mind is eroding?"

    If there was ever a punk rock science fiction movie, this is it. Repo Man is without a doubt the shoddiest film I've ever seen from the Criterion Collection, but somehow its poor workmanship seems to add to the film's unique anti-establishment aesthetic. It's a very different kind of "so bad it's good". It's definitely a bad movie—there are countless continuity errors, some as glaring as cutting from day to night and…

    For me I love cult movies, the idea of a cheap movie that mainstream audiences let slip through the cracks, to be caught by movie lovers. However for me, Repo Man did not entertain me. I wanted to love it. I really did. It had everything a cult movie should, but for some reason it just didnt click with me. I just fell the narrative was all over the place, characters didnt seem like they were in the moment, thus creating an overall un appealing atmosphere with 2 dimentional characters

    Don't think I had watched this since getting it off the Cult shelf at Directors chair video or some such thing. Certainly remembered but didn't love it from that viewing. Liked rewatching it again. Didn't love it, but pretty wild, a little in love with its punk rock attitude nonsense and completely of its time, but its crazy, compltely bonkers really and a lot of fun.

    "The life of a repo man is always intense."

    Repo Man, directed by Alex Cox is a strange brew of a movie. It's a heady concoction of science fiction, political satire, surrealist comedy, road movie and it's filled with Punk Rock anarchy! I am not really sure what to say about it, it's fucking awesome but I cannot quite explain it. It truly defines cult cinema.

    What I will say is that Harry Dean Stanton is a joy to watch…

    What a corny eighties adventure this one is. Not an exceptional gem but a fun and somewhat weird ride. Emilio as a rebellious teen trying to get a piece of the action. "Repo Man" is kind of a different take on the whole eighties teen movie genre, it's hilarious and deep at times but it's not as consistent as i'd like it to be. "Repo Man" is for anyone who loves eighties teen movies or just wants to watch an excellent adventure! If you like Estevez or Harry Dean Stanton do yourself a favor and watch this, preferably with friends!

    What happens when you mix one part Carpenter's THEY LIVE, one part Suicidal Tendencies self titled album and sprinkle a dash of THE OUTSIDERS for good measure?... This is what happens - A punk rock science fiction about big brother and class warfare...

    This is a film that is set in Los Angeles and features a MacGuffinish 1964 Chevy Malibu but it's important to note that at no time, do we even get a glimpse of the beach, Malibu or…

    In this era of global recession, soulless commercialism and rising religious fundamentalism, Repo Man feels a lot more relevant than it might have 30 years ago. Get yourself a copy, loan it to a friend, and steal it back in the dead of night. (Review by Eric Hillis) www.themoviewaffler.com/2014/08/1984-thon-repo-man.html

    There is so much potential in Alex Cox's Repo Man.

    Pugnacious punk rockers, fluorescent extra-terrestrial mysteries, product placement disdain, cool and grizzled Harry Dean Stanton, a voice of a generation. All these pieces have a carnal cult-allure, yet Cox lacked the competency to link each one together. A brilliant script, but a "ehh, pretty good" film.

    The biggest flop is obviously the alien subplot. On its surface, it is just dumb. Aliens? Really? And while it isn't executed very well,…

    Sarcastic, off beat, crazy and surreal. Does not make any sense by traditional standards,but still it's ace. Glad , I finally watched this cult classic.
