American Psycho 2...

Post by Movie Martyr on Wed Apr 06, 2011 7:11 pm

I enjoyed it more than the first American Psycho. Yes, I am insane.

Discuss both films. (Assuming anyone has seen the second...)

I fucking despised it myself, but somehow, I can see why you'd like it. Probably because it's an attractive girl doing the murdering.

Actually, I'm not even a huge fan of the first. The book is the best. The film, while good, doesn't really capture it.

Actually, Kunis being the protagonist wasn't even that good; it didn't seem like she'd actually be able to kill those people.

I liked it more, (I still didn't really enjoy it), because it wasn't incredibly boring, something I found the first one to be.

The problem I had with it was that the original was a deconstruction of the serial killer genre, whereas the sequel was just a serial killer film.

I wouldn't have hated it as much were it not called American Psycho 2, same way I wouldn't have hated the Dawn of the Dead remake as much if it wasn't called Dawn of the Dead.

Considering Lion's Gate decided to just take a previously unused script, change a couple of details and then release it as "American Psycho 2", I agree. It should have kept its original title "The Girl Who Wouldn't Die".

At least then, fans of the first film wouldn't hate it because it screwed with some of the first film's continuity/open-to-interpretation...ness.

They tried to pull a Die Hard 2, it seems.

If I remember correctly, you were one of the people who really liked American Psycho. And you liked it for its depth and satire, correct?

If that's the case, you will really dislike American Psycho 2 anyway, or at least, that is what I would guess.

I didn't like it for the depth & satire, I just recognised that they're there.

I liked it because a lot of people got killed in believable & interesting ways, the acting was good & most of the time the mis en scene was appealing. There's another word for that but I can't remember it.

*spoilers follow, I suppose*

Are you in the camp that believes that Bateman didn't kill anyone in the entire film?

I think he did kill some people & just imagined some others & it's purposely unclear as to which he did & which he didn't.

Well then at least you won't get really mad at the second film for screwing up "continuity" then.

Because in this one, Bateman actually did kill people. Some people don't like that, because they believed it was all in his head. The second film therefore completely messes with that idea.

Well, that's no fun. Might as well just watch old eps of 70s show.

Yes it is. Although it gets a little weird in the later seasons after Topher Grace and Ashton Kutcher leave the cast. Which is odd because I hate Ashton Kutcher in a way I usually reserve for family members.

Hmm...I may have to give it a shot then. It's got what seems to be a good cast, and that can often make a good show.

I may check it out some time.

I did too Fabian, let's go pull each other off.

I've been avoiding American Psycho 2 like the plague and I think I'll continue to do so, sorry Marter. I just know it will kill me.

Enjoyed the first one a lot, but it really didn't have much on the book, just one excellent performance.

But to wear that fact on your sleeve, as though it makes you a more sensitive person, is just vaginaely.
