    Wow! What a find! I was just in HMV and I came across an import copy of the long-deleted soundtrack to one of my all-time favourite movies, Repo Man!

    This is why I can't understand the limbo that this movie has been left in with regards to UK distribution - how bad can a movie with Edward Norton and Catherine Keener in it possibly be?

    I was terribly impressed by Shrek because it didn't really feel like a kids' movie to me - it was more like a CGI version of early Zucker brothers films like Airplane! and The Naked Gun. And since...
