This was good, not great. There isn't anything iconic about the Greeen Room. The characters are completely forgettable. It's got some very tense sequences but as some reviewer put it, it's a lateral move for Saulnier. Not pushing any envelopes, not doing anything new. Blue Ruin was better (barely a criticism of this film, if anything).

Loved this poo poo out of this movie, especially as a fan of hardcore/punk music for the past 15+ years. I thought it hit all the right notes, especially with the opening showing the lovely life of a touring band.

What was the text message that Tiger/the singer had sent at the beginning of the movie? I couldn't read it on the screen but wasn't sure if it was anything of importance

I should probably take some more time to think about it but I'm pretty sure Green Room is the best movie ever made.

Saw it Saturday morning and am already planning to see it again this week. I'd heard nothing about it until Friday afternoon when I watched 30sec of a trailer before stopping it because I was 100% sold on seeing it and didn't want to ruin anything else.

I don't think that trying to generate a thesis about a film based on its synopsis is particularly interesting or worth sharing.

Saw this last week and loved it, watched Blue Ruin last night and while it was very good I enjoyed Green Room a lot better. It may have just been that I saw Green Room in the theatre and that's almost always much better experience, but I felt that Green Room was a much tighter movie.

This was a good movie and I really enjoyed how totally blase the blonde (ex?)neo-nazi was about her string of revenge-murders. "Got him." I also really enjoyed the line "I want to go to jail. "

That very first time they're about to open the door for Patrick Stewart is so perfectly tense that my entire theater was dead silent. The Prince bit and the dog part at the end also got the appropriate reactions.

-Assault on Precinct 13
-The Siege
-Skinheads: The Second Coming of Hate

Oh, they also showed bits from The Day My Kid Went Punk, amazing,

I did! Their preshows are usually awesome. I loved that they had footage from the Ritz when it was a venue of the Dead Kennedys doing "Nazi Punks gently caress Off!". I went to an 11:10 show, so it was me and maybe 10 other people. I'd been waiting for this one for a while, and I'm glad they screened at an Alamo near me so I didn't have to drive downtown.

If I get the time, I'd like to go see it again. And I want more movies where Patrick Stewart plays a villain, because he nailed it.

God I wish we had something similar to the drafthouse, that sounds so cool. We just have one full-time movie theatre, a Cineplex Odeon, and it blows (and not just because they didn't pick up Green Room). There's a place that occasionally has movie nights for adults that runs out of one of those places for kids that's like part cafe and part jungle gym, but it runs really irregularly and never advertises.

Look on the bright side.

I think this will easily be my pick for movie of the year. The main characters reminded me of various people I know so it was hard to watch at times though.

I'm happy with how Patrick Stewart was used since he could have been easily distracting for a movie like this.

Patrick Stewart's death scene was surprisingly brutal, getting shot in the head with a big spurt of blood but he's still kinda conscious and able to shoot for a moment. It weirdly enough reminded me of a scene in Premium Rush, if you've seen it, you probably know already.

And seconding how great the "you were so scary in the dark" line was.

Someone yelled "STAR TREK!" when that happened, which was probably the biggest laugh in my showing.

So, question, what exactly hosed up the guy with the Minor Threat shirt's arm? My girlfriend thinks it was the other band member with the... sheet metal? Whatever that was but I thought sheet metal guy was hitting the other Nazi that walked up with it and either Patrick Stewart or the other Nazi was cutting the guy's arm up.

I'm pretty sure it was all the other Nazis waiting with knives and poo poo next to Patrick Stewart. You could see a bunch of them waiting just outside the door when Imogen Poots peeks out through the vent.

Yeah, I feel like it was pretty clear that there were red laces standing right next to Patrick Stewart and, keeping with the "blades only" rule that was still in effect, they had knives and/or box cutters. That's where the box cutter that Imogen used came from.

That was one of the most heartwarming things in the movie. This and Hush both did a great job of subverting animal death expectations in horror movies, and they were better for it.

Edit: Aside from the drummer and that guy getting headshotted by the bar, was everyone else in the band killed by the dog?

Darcy might have talked a big game, but let's be honest: the dogs were the only professionals in this movie. They're even called that at one point. The event in your spoiler tags is the ultimate representation of that sense of professionalism, and a dramatic counterpoint to the immeasurable clusterfuck that's preceded it

Yeah, the singer and the guitarist were both killed by the dog. The singer immediately and the guitarist after getting hit by a stray bullet in the leg. The drummer was stabbed outside and bled to death. The bassist lived.

This, but I'm pretty sure that the hand got hit by more than just a knife at the wrist, that looked like a machete. At least one other skin later has a machete, possibly the same one.

Just saw this movie tonight and I really liked it, may need time to digest it before I decide if it's a "favorite" or not but it was really good. The fact that nobody was too intelligent or too dumb (Patrick Stewart was maybe too confident in his plan and his footsoldiers) and acted like normal people really made the movie for me. The Neo-Nazis weren't portrayed as cartoon villains, you could almost see someone making a separate movie playing out from their end. I guess that ties in with Pat's anecdote about the paintball match with the Iraqi vets. Just like the vets in the story, it's kids fighting kids and both just want to kill/stay alive and get the whole thing over with.

That's another thing I really liked. Plans on both ends kept getting hosed up by the people on the other side being smarter than expected.

Does anyone know what Darcy was doing walking away before getting shot at the end? I assume he was trying to make it look like he was defending himself and make things trickier for the kids to explain to the cops.

Oh, holy poo poo, I didn't even think of that, but it makes total sense. Darcy is all business about his actions, so it makes sense that his final moments would be sticking to the plan.

I'm just surprised that the film, with its premise, doesn't take place in a setting/scenario with stronger historical ties to anti-neonazis. France has an insanely interesting history of leftist anti-fascist gangs squaring off against neonazis that is ripe for exploitation. Particularly with groups such as The Black Dragons and the Red Warriors.

I'l admit that I haven't [yet] seen the movie itself, so maybe it goes towards more American themes. Or maybe I'm being ignorant and Virginia has an equally crazy history.

The movie is set in Oregon.

Anyway, it's an indie movie, and the writer/director is an American. Do you really expect a relatively new writer/director to set his film half-way across the world and write foreign characters? Why in the world would he make things so much harder for himself? And where would he get the funding for this? Hard enough to convince people to put up money for an indie slasher thriller.

I thought the movie was excellent, though I could only have seen it in a theater. We're I watching this at home I'd get chickenshit as soon as things started getting nasty and I'd turn it off. It's a one time effective thriller and it's impressive that so entertaining a movie was made so cheaply. The lush and overcast setting of the Pacific Northwest is always very alluring on the screen (the first couple of seasons of The X-files, Rambo: First Blood, and I'm sure many more) and it really adds to the atmosphere.

The exchange where Alia Shawat's character corrects that dude to the effect that her band is from Arlington, not Washington told me the writer/director hails from Northern VA. It's the sort of regional thing no one else who wasn't from NOVA would think to have a character of theirs consider bothersome enough to correct in a proud fashion.
