Is the life of a Repo Chick also always intense?

Alex Cox via his own blog, http://www.alexcox.com/blog.htm talks about finishing Repo Chick, the sequel to one of my favorite movies of all time, Repo Man.  I trust Cox to a point, but I don’t have very high expectations.  Repo Man was a product of it’s time, a crazy sci-fi, punk rock movie with a soundtrack that came from heaven itself.  If by heaven you think like I do; a blood and beer drenched alleyway.

What is interesting, are his talks about microfeatures, shooting movies on the cheap and fast.  I agree with him (because it’s obvious)  that this is the way to go, especially in this day and age of no one having any money, but still have the drive to make something more than shorts.  And god knows I like the idea of lots of small budget feature films being made, I know a lot of people who need the work, heh.

Of course his comment about horror being the first refuge of mediocrity is insulting, but I’ll forgive him.  I watch enough Sci-Fi Channel to understand there is some truth to that statement.  But that doesn’t damn all small budget horror.  Fucker.

Anyways, the current climate needs a Repo person, Man or Chick, and I’ve heard there will be a giant robot, so sold.
