My Thoughts:

I just barely remember the old anime series this film is based on. So I don't remember the origin story from the anime.... but I liked what they did with it for the film. The animation is top notch and the voice cast is great.... there is some big stars I am familiar with. This film is heavy on story and a little less action then I was expecting... but it kinda needed it for an origin story. The origin is a little darker then I was expecting... but there was some good laughs in the story as well. Definitely worth the time put in to watch it.

Smallville Marathon, a review by addicted2dvd


Season 2: Disc 6:

EPISODE 21: ACCELERATE
Years ago, a terrible accident took Lana's childhood friend Emily. But now a ghostly Emily resurfaces in Lana's life, and the secret to the little girl's renewed existence lies in the laboratories of Lionel Luthor.

My Thoughts:
This is one of my all time favorites! I can't for the life of me believe that the classic movie "House on Haunted Hill" actually put a scare into Lana!  But the fact that it had ever so slight horror genre appeal to it made me love this episode as I love horror!

EPISODE 22: CALLING
The specialist hired to interpret the Smallville cave pictographs acquires astonishing powers and a new mission: kill Clark! Helen and Lana both have doubts about their relationship with the men in their lives.

My Thoughts:
We are really starting to get into the mythology arc of the show at this point. For me this episode is enjoyable... but not the best episode I ever seen.

EPISODE 23: EXODUS
Clark will go with Lana or without her. But he's leaving Smallville for keeps. The fledgling superhero turns his back on family, friends and destiny after his decision to destroy the spaceship brings unintended tragedy.

My Thoughts:
Great cliff-hanger episode. Enjoyed it... but hated to see Chloe get so jealous that she turns on Clark the way she did.

Season 2: Overall Thoughts:
This was a really good season. Started to do less of the Freak of the Week episodes and concentrated more on the origins of Clark. Not that I don't like the Freak of the Week episodes.. because I definitely do... I like both styles. It was awesome to see Christopher Reeve in an episode this season.
