What part does morality play in judging a films quality? Go watch Million Dollar Baby or some other Oscar fishing feel good drama.

(sorry, english not my native lg.)

I can't believe it, Chuck O'Leary. Yes, the film is cruel, sadistic ; yes I found it disturbing ; but it's also a well-crafted movie. Fine acting, good editing... What's the point of your moral position here ? "socially irresponsible" = "worst film of 2005" ? Give me a break. This is totally irrelevant.

Sorry, but in a year where "Alone in the Dark", "Son of the Mask" and "The Fog" were inflicted upon us, that's just silly. Those movies are far better examples of sadistic and irresponsible behaviour, as they're irresponsibly sadistic to the audience.

In my humble opinion, this is one of the better horror/comedies of the decade. An acquired taste, of course.

How you managed to interpret what I said as meaning that "The Fog" is better "Devil's Rejects" I'll never know. I'm not sure how one hongs themselves either. Does it involve Hong Kong? The plane tickets out there are too expensive, sorry.

I hate it when people use the word 'glorification' to negatively connotate a film.

It's a FUCKING MOVIE! Get over it.

THANK YOU THANK YOU CHUCK!
There is NOTHING positive about this movie. I was told to watch it as a 15 year old by some obviously perverted adult and have not been able to get certain scenes out of my mind since. It has been 5 years. NO ITS NOT JUST A FUCKING MOVIE! its a sick perverts idea of entertainment and i am floored that there are individuals out there that actually enjoy watching this. Sounds like a prerequisite for being a serial killer. Uhhhh get help!!

"A sickening, socially-irresponsible glorification of depraved and sadistic behavior" sounds like the definition of a good horror movie to me!

holly t just because some guy that didnt know how you would react told you to watch this movie doesnt make him a pervert,he probably thought at 16 you would be mature enough to handle it (obviously not) i watched it when i was 12 and those "scenes" are just from a movie so it didnt take long to get out of my head and to this dipshit that says he couldnt follow the movie maybe you should watch a sing a long,might be a little easier for you to follow and theres clearly an end when they all get shot in the car. grow up.

"socially-irresponsible"? I wish he could clarify this for me. Since when do movies get blamed for the actions of individuals? Oh, yeah, when hippy liberals were invented...
