Big Ass Spider!, a review by GSyren

TitleBig Ass Spider! (5-055201-825308)
DirectorMike Mendez
ActorsGreg Grunberg, Lin Shaye, Ruben Pla, Alexis Peters, Lombardo Boyar
Produced2013 in United States
Runtime85 minutes
AudioEnglish DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1
OverviewA 50-foot-tall alien spider escapes from a military lab and rampages the city of Los Angeles. When a massive military strike fails, the city's scientists and soldiers turn to an unlikely hero. Alex (Greg Grunberg – Heroes, Star Trek), a bug exterminator, and his Mexican security guard sidekick, Jose (Lombardo Boyar – 24, Modern Family), are the hapless duo who team up to kill the creature before the city is destroyed.
My thoughtsThankfully this wasn't the total crap that I feared, but also not as good as I had wished. The CGI is actually pretty good for a B-movie like this. Not perfect, but I've seen a lot worse. Grunberg is quite good, and Boyar is really funny as his sidekick.

One thing that works against the film is that the spider is really creepy when it is (relatively) small, but when it gets enormous it just becomes so unbelievable that it's more silly than scary.

Still, this film is a lot better than most of the crap that comes from SyFy or The Asylum. The blu-ray looks and sounds good, but is lacking in features. A trailer is all we get. If you liked Eight Legged Freaks you'll probably like this one too.

Alvin and the Chipmunks meet Frankenstein, a review by addicted2comics

Alvin and the Chipmunks meet Frankenstein

The Plot:

The Chipmunks are working at the amusement park, Majestic Movie Studios, in a singing attraction. Little do they know that the real Dr. Frankenstein are in a new attraction called, "Frankenstein's Castle". After Alvin drives a crazy bus ride, they miss their next performance and get locked in the park after closing time. Dr. Frankenstein figures that the castle isn't scary enough and re-creates the real Frankenstein and after the monster finds the boys, it starts a wild and wacky adventure!

My Thoughts:

Well, I have this to say: the opening Chipmunks song was awesome!! ........ and it went downhill from there....

Don't get me wrong, I watched this every Halloween with the Wolfman one. That, and ther Frankenstein monster is really a kind creature that was misunderstood. They stayed true to that! But ... they had him on the playground. He's afraid to go on a rollar coaster. They completely babied a monster!! (stay calm, Britt....there we worse versions....remember Rock n roll Frankenstien)

But... its a good family movie, and they did do nice things with the good doctor! Sooooooooooo ......... I'd recommend it for the kiddies, But I'd suggest Wolfman first and foremost.

My Thoughts:
I been enjoying this show so much that I just couldn't be bothered writing a review for each disc. So I waited until I watched the complete season. And I am still completely hooked on this series. I have now watched 2 of the 4 seasons that I got for Christmas... and just can't wait to start season 3. Why am I so hooked on this series?... I really don't know... just know that I am enjoying every moment of this fun series. Favorite episode of the season? So many good episodes it really isn't easy to say... but I guess I would have to go with Shawn (and Gus) of the Dead... which happens to be the season finale. And I think they ended the season with a nice little cliffhanger. Nothing detrimental to the storyline... but something to keep your interest for the next season.

My Rating:
