Cube

Cube, 1997

Not an incredible movie, but it’s pretty good. Obviously made on a low budget. The so-so acting and cheesy dialogue are a bi off-putting, particularly at first, but once it got going I was able to get pretty sucked into it. I’ve seen this once before, probably some time during high school, but I couldn’t really remember what happened, so that was good.

It was cool to hear where some of the samples from Agoraphobic Nosebleed’s song Pentagram Constellation (on The Poacher Diaries) come from, too. I recognised Halloway’s voice before it got to her lines, but I didn’t pick Worth’s. “It’s all the same machine, right? The Pentagon, multi-national corporations, the police! If you do one little job, you build a widget in Saskatoon, and the next thing you know, it’s two miles under the desert, the essential component of a death machine!”. It was really weird watching that scene and knowing the lines off by heart. I guess the  track title relates to the movie too. Not so sure about the lyrics. Maybe.

I’ve heard Cube 2 really sucks, but I’ll check it out soon. I just saw there’s a third one too, which is a prequel. Hmm…

Orgazmo

Orgazmo, 1997

Orgazmo is good, but not great. Good to see lots of the guys from Cannibal! making appearances, and there’s lots of jokes that are in the same style but all-in-all, I felt like it didn’t quite have the same appeal, for me. I shouldn’t really make comparisons to Cannibal because a) it’s one of my favourite movies ever (how many times have I typed that now…) and b) they’re completely different movies with nothing in common except the writers and some actors. But, there ya go, I just compared them.

Final verdict: not as good as Cannibal. 7/10 beans.
