Video | Review by Dan Taylor
flicks require the intense effort that I
put into writing my reviews. (Pause here
for laughter. Continue.) Others can be summed
up better just from my notes scribbled upon
viewing. Troma's street-level romance/action
flick TROMEO & JULIET begs for the latter
treatment. Years in the making, the flick
elicited the following when watching the
exclusive director's cut hosted by Troma
honcho Lloyd Kauffman...
Trailers for TOMCAT ANGELS
and TEENAGE CAT GIRLS IN HEAT..."I
have some crystal meth in my underwear.
Let's go down to the men's bathroom and
snort it up"...narrated by Lemmy...on-screen
nipple piercing...the idiotic senseless
violence of every great Troma release...still
using the ol' "finger through the table"
gag...why does everything look like it was
shot in the mid-1980s on stock leftover
from THE TOXIC AVENGER?...that sound you
hear is Shakespeare rolling over in his
grave (maybe Christopher Marlowe, too)..."one
word, more fat"..."Listen, I'm
gonna go jerk off in my hand and swish it
around in the punch bowl"...spurned
lesbians...oodles of toilet humor...3-ft.
penis monster...boy-crazy priests...Troma
loves that out- the-window-shot...nothing
like some vomit.
