    there was a thread about the trailer for Bubba Ho-Tep (link here) a couple o' months ago here on Macrumors and I've finally managed to see the flick... [​IMG]

    Bruce Campell kicks @ss as Elvis!!! awesome performance!!! [​IMG]

    I tell you what, that movie is HILARIOUS, I can't believe that it wasn't shown in theatres over here in Germany..!

    If you haven't seen it, go get a copy or find a theatre that might play it some night...

    That's an awesome movie. I saw it a couple months ago. Great concept; excellently executed.

    I'm really looking forward to seeing it when I get the chance. I assume from the website that it's only on a limited-release bigscreen schedule.

    it's nice to see that Bruce Campbell can do his usual campy (and totally enjoyable) goofy hero thing but at the same time give his character some true human depth. when i first heard of it, i figured it would be another guts 'n grins B-movie, so i was pretty amazed when it turned out to be more about this theme of loss and longing... by way of pitting elvis against a cowboy mummy. who woulda thunk it?

    I agree! Awesome movie! I saw a screening of it last year and have been looking for a wider release for ages! Is it going to be out on DVD soon?
