Movies : some reviews of my recent purchases

It's been a movie watching craze at my house.


Buckaroo Banzai

i loved buckaroo bonzi. it's insane comic book of movie. plus you gotta love peter weller.

The Chronicles of Riddick: Dark Fury

The Chronicles of Riddick: Dark Fury was a fun little movie. now that i've had some time to think, i see more of the flaws in the new riddick film. i think the animated movie might be better because it stays true to pitch black more then the recent film. I think riddick fits better in a horror setting. but thirty-five minutes of animated action is fine by me.


Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home

Star Trek V: The Final Frontier

Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country

the three star trek movies, boy as a kid i watched those first six movies like crazy. it feels good to finally get a decent dvd version of them.

Night of the Living Dead (Millennium Edition)

with the night of the living dead, i felt i needed to finish off the romero zombie trilogy, and from what i could find, this was the best version. apparently supported by George himself. and I'm so glad i didn't buy the one with newly filmed footage. man, did that suck some donkey balls. first George didn't direct it, second it was boring as hell, and i think making a crazy priest talking about zombies a boring thing, is a crime against nature.

Chappelle's Show: season 1

The Chappelle's Show, along with Reno 911, are some of the funniest shows that have been put out in a while. comedy central is doing alright. now if they put out a tough crowd dvd, i would think about buying it, just to see what couldn't make the shows stellar comedy quality level. true story, i watched the show the other day with subtitles on. oh and even then I could barely understand what Colin quinn was mumbling.

buffy the vampire slayer: season 1

and the buffy dvd. I've seen it before, while some of this is cute, I'm mostly buying it because of my collector nature and that spike is one hell of an entertaining character and I look forward to seeing more of his back story. plus, it's a pretty girl fighting monsters. I'll admit my draw to it.

Also watched :

Ginger Snaps

while it had some major plot holes and some really awful one liners, I still enjoyed it. But then again, I'm a sucker for werewolves.

I liked Ginger Snaps a LOT. It's an afterschool special about how a girl's body changes as she grows older and becomes... a freakin' WEREWOLF.

Star Trek V, though -- I can't support that. Shatner behind the camera! NOOOOOO!!!

Haha that's true, but one sure way for me not to give a damn about a character is for them to make a suicide pact when I first see them.

Come on, man. They're gonna go see GOD!
