Repo! The Genetic Opera

The difference between a musical and an opera: musicals have dialogue and songs, operas only have songs. This movie is a rock opera. Not all the music was the greatest, but for the most part it was pretty good. Some songs are even catchy enough that I would listen to them on their own. The futuristic storyline is interesting. Alexa Vega really shines. The brothers seemed really over-acted, but maybe that’s how they wanted them to act. I admire Paris Hilton for many reasons, but her acting is not one of them. She always seems awkward, like she doesn’t know what to do with herself. Her singing is decent, though.
