Red State is on On Demand

For $9.99, you can watch Kevin Smith's horror movie about a WBC style church before it is released to theaters on Sept. 23. I haven't watched it yet, but based on the reviews, I don't think it's for the faint of heart. One reviewer said fans of Saw will like it.

Has anyone watched it yet? I want to watch, but I can't handle gore. I don't mind violence, but I can't handle movies that cross over into torture porn territory (like the Saw series, Hostel, Human Centipede). How gory is it? $9.99 is a lot to spend on a movie that I may not be able to finish.

I have AT&T and I don't see it On Demand. I found a featurette about it - we just watched and at the end it said "Order now, On Demand" but we can't find it. :( Looks really good, although we like those Grindhouse types of movies. If it's like that, then I'll enjoy it. If it's like Hostel, then I'll turn it off after 5 minutes. :hand:

I haven't seen it but, for those who want to watch it early, it's also on YouTube for 9.99

I've never paid to watch a movie on there, so I'm not sure how it works exactly, but it keeps showing on my sidebar

It's also on iTunes. I watched it with my apple tv today. It was alright, not worth a 9.99 rental IMO. Kevin Smith really should stick to comedy writing OR directing.

Visually it was stylish and great. The writing was disappointing.

I don't know how much information people will want or if I can spoiler tag information, otherwise I'd write more about it.

The style is really stripped down, so I don't think it would have as much impact on a small screen with distractions available. It's violent in a Tarantino way, not gory, and by the time it takes that turn, you are pretty invested in the story. I don't think I would rent it, but I enjoyed the screening this past spring when it was on tour. John Goodman did a great job, and the last scene is pretty funny if you can hang in there.

      Planning on scheduling my ankle surgery around Trump's Georgia trial - if I'm forced to be off my feet, I might as well be entertained.

      Stupid loneliness!
      Kid 1 went back to college (yeah! But sad foe me, she stayed with me all summer. It was nice to start a new phase in our mother/daughter relationship)
      Zero prospects on dates. (Not that I have tried online dating, scared of that but I have reached put to a new group at church, etc.
      I asked a friend to go to dinner the other night so I wasn't eating alone, again. The friend had plans, all my friends always have plans. I see stuff on social media, I'm never invited. I'm single, I'm the 3rd or 5th wheel.
      My one parent friend at kid 2's fall sport won't be there because their daughter made varsity (Yeah for her!!! Seriously happy for her. Sad for me for another sport I basically sit alone, did that majority of spring and summer sporting events.)
      And now I'm crying as my mom told me 2 different funny stores that former teachers remembered about my twin. Both stories were about how they got a crack out of my twin's antics (my parents went to a funeral today and saw former colleagues). Teachers remember me (after all I was a twin and teachers' kid) but none would have memorable stories of me. 
      I feel invisible. 
      Don't worry, this will pass,  it always does. I just need a pity party for a few days. I'm not in anyway going to harm myself. As lonely as I am, I have a very full life I (usually) love. I just needed to vent and cry for a moment. 
      If you are still reading this, thanks Fjer. 😊

      Absolutely awful about the fires on Maui. In 2019, I stayed in Lahaina. I liked to sit on the sea wall, which is the only structure left now, and watch the water. People are receiving help, but many had to leave pets. Please donate to the Maui Humane Society, which is leading efforts to find, treat, and reunite pets.

      Nebraska’s new football coach, who is involved in an organization called Man Up Ministries, labels certain players “Alphas” and sometimes “extreme Alphas” and the local paper has a nice piece on why people objecting to the term “alpha male” are wrong and it has a “nice ring”. 🤮🤮🤮🤮
