I actually preferred the Theatrical cut of Army of Darkness compared to the Director's Cut. The Director's Cut tried to keep more of an Evil Dead 2 feel, while as the theatrical cut fully embraced the goofiness and became more comedy than horror, which I liked. Plus I like the theatrical ending more, because it's an overall more lighthearted ridiculous movie.

Kung Fury may have the greatest film trailer ever made, but I have found something that has the greatest game trailer ever made. It's the most awesome blood splattering head exploding pussy sealing metal ball clanking manhood growing masculine testosterone filled thing ever made. Strafe, from 1996. It's rad, it's awesome, it's balls to the wall retro. And it is absolutely not, under any circumstances, safe for children.

Speaking of good movie commentaries, I'd throw in "Anchorman" where Adam McKay and Will Ferrell have a "scat-off" with Lou Rawls amongst other hijinks. And while it isn't "Cannibal: The Musical" the commentary for "Eurotrip" does something similar where the crew turns the commentary into a drinking game and they are blitzed by the end of the film.

Other than that, I love "Army of Darkness" probably because I saw it before either "Evil Dead 1 & 2," the slapsticky-ness worked for me.

Have you guys seen Equinox (1970)? It's co-directed by up-and-coming visual effects master Dennis Muren and is a definite influence on Sam Raimi's Evil Dead movies. Four kids go up to a cabin in the mountains, find an evil book, and all hell breaks loose.
