We're Quoted on the Hell Ride Newspaper Ad!
by Alex Billington
August 13, 2008
My first major quote and I'm swearing in it! The quote adorns the top of the Hell Ride newspaper ad and says "Hell Ride is a f**king blast!" Thanks to FS.net reader Ryan, we've got a rough scan of the ad below (since the film ain't playing in my city yet). I honestly loved Hell Ride and I think I was one of the few who really enjoyed it that much, which is probably why I ended up on there. It doesn't have great reviews all around, but if I'm the one to convince you it's worth it, I'll do my absolute best. If you're looking for the review (to make sure I did actually write that) you can find it right here. And besides swearing in my first big quote, the next best part is that I'm in big bold letters directly above Richard Roeper's quote.
If anyone's got a better version that they can send my way, I'd love to update this with a higher quality image. For now, here's the best scan we've got. For those without a newspaper subscription, check it out.
And in case anyone is wondering, Hell Ride was a fuckin' blast and I definitely suggest it. It doesn't have too many other very positive reviews, but if you just go in looking for bikes, beer, and booty you'll get exactly that. It's not a complex story, it's not anything made to be a spectacle, it's just some down and dirty cinema that I loved. There's a trailer that you can check out right here on top of my review. I'll leave you with this quote: "I said it before and I'll say it again, Hell Ride is a fuckin' blast. I loved every last minute of this film and can't wait to see it again. It's Grindhouse but with bikers and endless hot women."

Congrats. Sorry about the quality, my scanner is shot for some reason, figures, the one time I actually use it :). You'd think they would tell you they would use your quote though. Oh well. Good job!

I guess this would be the equivalent of me getting a photograph published, but of an ugly model who has her eyes half-closed and drool on her chin. Uhh, congratulations?? 😛 Seriously though, good going. I just wish it was for a better movie. 🙂 Roeper compared it to Smoking Aces (albeit favorably) on the tv show, and I hated the hell out of that movie. Even I'M not too stoked to see this one, and I see damn near everything. I'm going to have to be in the right mood to select Hell Ride over seeing the great films that are out now over again. And I have no idea what that right mood is.

My mother in law told me she went to see a biker gang movie at the Laemmle in Pasadena (indy movie theater), and I immediately said, holy crap you saw "Hell Ride". She told me the movie was basically all gratuitous sex, I asked her if there was violence as well, and she said "yes". She told me she walked out after about half an hour and kept going on about how much nudity there was in the film. After she finished her story I told her that if she's trying to dissuade me from seeing it, she only did the opposite!
