Spawn, 1997



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…
