We've got a chainsaw and we're gonna use it

Since it's probably not worth paying $10 and going to see the new version of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, you may as well just read Stephen Hunter's hilarious review. The movie is grisly, and Roger Ebert hates it (no stars! It's as bad as Tomcats!) and we know from his glowing review of Kill Bill that it's not just because of all the gore. But Stephen Hunter's review is so funny, and so filled with shame for liking this movie, that it sounds almost a little bit tempting: "Man: meat. Meat: man. Man, meet meat. Meat, meet man. That's pretty much the film in a nutshell. Kids high on grass and life's verdant possibility wander fecklessly into a zone of darkest taboo: people, people who eat people, the luckiest people in the world. Lots of death, lots of eating." It's hippie vs. redneck all over again, a battle that never gets old.
