A Review in Haiku
17 December 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Rock'N'Roll Porno.

With a Scooby-Doo Ending.

And Bad Editing.

I stole the idea of doing a review in Haiku from a blog I saw somewhere the other night.

This movie had potential, but I don't feel that the creators put enough thought to fleshing things out a bit (or adding to the budget to be able to add more footage).

They could have used longer, more explicit sex scenes and I don't mean that because I'd want more porn; they obviously wanted to make sex the main purpose of the film and they kind of half-a$$ed it by showing simulated penetration and oral early in the film, but nowhere else.

They also had a plot that was almost enough to tell a story, but they failed to make a case for there being a point to all this in the first place. There was almost a wrap around story with the "groupie", but I really wish that there had been at least something of an explanation. I do understand keeping the audience thinking afterwords by not explaining everything though, and that could have been the reason for the vagueness, but I kind of doubt it.

On the plus side, I did like how they speed up the dialog ala "Chipmunk" style when they were doing (I'm assuming) cocaine. The cards at the very end were actually kind of poetic as well.

The most distracting aspect to this was the editing. From the drums and other instruments not syncing up at all, to the breathing mismatches during the sex and masturbation scenes.
