A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors, a review by addicted2dvd
Title: A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors Movie Count: 89 TV Ep Count: 43 Other Count: 2 Time Started: 7am Plot: The last of the Elm Street kids are now at a psychiatric ward where Freddy haunts their dreams with unspeakable horrors. Their only hope is dream researcher and fellow survivor Nancy Thompson (Heather Langenkamp of the original 'Nightmare'), who helps them battle the supernatural psycho on his own hellish turf.
My Thoughts: This is another of my favorite "Nightmare" movies. I love all the things the kids learned they could do in their dreams. Plus this one has one of my favorite actresses in it... Patricia Arquette. I have been a fan of hers since the first time I saw her TV Series "Medium".

Plot: Mysterious drifter Tae-suk enters other people's lives as easily as he breaks into their unoccupied homes. Instead of stealing their riches, he repays his hosts' unknowing hospitality by fixing broken items, cleaning up even doing their laundry. But when he sneaks into a sprawling mansion, he discovers a beautiful, lonely wife named Sun-hwa, trapped in a loveless marriage. Without saying a word, the pair begin an erotic game of cat-and-mouse, until her abusive husband returns home, unleashing a shocking burst of violence. Tae-suk defends Sun-hwa with the aid of her husband's golf club. The lovers run away together finding domestic bliss inhabiting strangers' homes. Later, when Tae-suk is framed for a murder, even prison walls can't keep them apart for good.

This movies lives without almost no dialogue. As a matter of fact the two main characters never talk throughout the whole movie. Even though there is no dialogue, the romance builds up quite nicely. There was not a dull minute at all.
Who will stand up to villains now that a heartbroken 'Dark Knight' has mysteriously vanished? Never fear, New Gothamites, a trio of champions is ready to take wing - and Helena, the daughter of 'Batman' and 'Catwoman', is among them. She calls herself 'Huntress' and crime is her prey. Teenaged Dinah is the youngest of the group, learning as she goes and gifted in clairvoyance. And overseeing the awesome threesome's high-tech nerve center is 'Batgirl'. Left wheelchair-bound by 'The Joker', she has reinvented herself as 'Oracle', the teamís cyber expert. Huntress, Dinah, Oracle: They are the 'Birds of Prey'. Fighting together. Living together. And soaring into adventure together in 13 breathtaking live-action episodes.
1. Pilot Birds take wing. Oracle, Huntress an Dinah work as one against Quinn's 'New Gotham' power grab.
My Thoughts: Even though I definitely enjoyed it... the pilot episode was not quite as good as I remember it being. In this episode Oracle and Huntress first meet Dinah... and take her in after she helps them with the case they are working on. It has someone preying on people's fears similar to the way the Batman villain "The Scarecrow" did... minus the costume and such. We also hear the story on how Oracle and Huntress gets together... and what happened to Batman. So that really is a lot of information to put into an hour long pilot episode.
2. Slick Go with the flow. The Birds face a baddie who turns from solid to liquid. Meanwhile, the Helena-Reese attraction grows.
My Thoughts: This was a good episode. The girls must stop a meta-human (think mutant) that can change from solid to water from stealing an armored car filled with military grade weapons. Dinah tries to get closer to Huntress to gain her trust.
3. Prey for the Hunter Takes one to kill one? A slayer usurps metahuman talents - in order to murder metahumans. Dinah ditches school.
My Thoughts: This was another good episode. In this episode a Meta-human that can mirror other Meta-human's powers goes on the hunt... killing off Meta-humans with their own powers. We also get our first look at No-Man's Land... a secret bar/hangout for the Meta-human population. Even though I enjoyed this episode... I have to admit that the ending (how they stopped him) was pretty obvious... I saw it coming early on in the episode.
4. Three Bird and a Baby Big trouble in a tiny bundle. Helena rescues an infant, unaware that her good deed will lead to danger.
My Thoughts: Once again... another really good episode. In this episode Helena (Huntress) rescues an infant baby boy... to discover he isn't what he seems. He was actually created in a laboratory... to go through an entire lifespan in 3 days. And is programed to become an assassin.... with a mission to complete. But can the girl's friendship overcome the programming and stop him in time? Watching this episode... I came to a realization that some of these stories seemed to inspire episodes of Smallville... first you have the man that can transform himself into water. And now this one with an infant going through a complete lifespan in a matter of days. Both of these have very similar Smallville episodes. I know 2 episodes is not a huge sign... but it will be interesting to see if there are any more familiar storylines here.
