YES! YESYESYEYSYESYSEYS~

Ricky 6 was a GREAT movie. Part true crime, part mindfuck and I loved every freaking second of it.

the actors were all great and they had muucho chemistry, which really helped it along.


What's funny is that I went into it completely blind and had no idea of what I was going to expect.. its like a hipper version of Donnie Darko.


SPOILERS... Like... BIGGGGGGGGGGG SPOILERS!

From the opening monologue, I was expecting Ricky to do something to actually prove the existance of Satan.. hehe, to be honest I didn't expect his suicide AT ALL. I thought when, in the jail, he said he was "inviting" his friend, it meant he was finally going to make some sort of demonstration.. muuuucho sad. :(

This movie rocked the house down, and then some. Great acting, but the movie sometimes had a "made for tv" feel to it. Still really, really great. Especially the hallucinations- those were sooooo trippy. And the ending was particularly well executed too.

Ever wonder what it would be like to have Jesus Christ stalk you through a Grocery Store when all you wanted was some Sunny D? After seeing this movie, you shall wonder no more.

I'll give this one an 8/10. Pretty solid, but not without flaws. Perhaps could've used slightly slicker production values.

In all honesty, Jesus looked like a frickin BADDDDASS! Seriously...



Gretchen: I can see it now.. yesh.. yesh... a slumber party in the near future!

After seeing Ricky, I'm actually half tempted to watch re-runs of Angel.. Sad.. :(

i've hit a new low, 'cause i watched one with connor in it yesterday! granted, it was with the sound *and* closed captioning off...i suppose that makes it a little less pitiful.

why is it so hard to get ahold of movies like "ricky 6"? after working at blockbuster and seeing all the straight-to-video CRAP they rent, why can't movies like this one, that are supposed to actually be GOOD, see the light of day? argh!
