I did the pay-per-view thing last night and watched The Hangover with a buddy of mine. If you haven’t seen it then rent or buy it!! This fuckin’ thing had me in stitches! Granted, this is probably more of a guy comedy movie so you ladies beware but wow was that entertaining. Four stars! I rank this one up there with Office Space in terms of movies I can certainly relate to, unfortunately.
The Hangover soundtrack kicks ass. Too bad they couldn’t get all the rights to the songs because the soundtrack sold is incomplete and not worth the money so don’t buy it. As various reviewers point out on Amazon, this movie grossed over $200 million and they couldn’t score all the song rights to release a complete soundtrack CD? The hell?
Anyway, there is an old Cramps song in the movie (Fever, which I believe is a cover). This was one of those moments when I was reminded of a band I hadn’t listened to in a long time. Here this morning I’ve got the stereo cranked (kids are gone for a week so this is one of those rare blocks of me-time.) and the psychobilly is flowin’ with my personal favorites The Cramps and Reverend Horton Heat!
But even better, here's some vintage footage. RIP Lux.
