My Thoughts:
I think they should have just quit after the first one.  Five years after nuking Racoon City, and yet the "bad" guys still have all the power and supplies they need to run their underground complexes; while on the surface, the virus has wiped out the rest of the world except a few odd survivors.  Cites are buried under sand.  Hundreds of clones have been created (full grown, no less), but what exactly is the purpose.  If they really want to cure the virus, why aren't they working together with Alice. How is it that Alice has wandered for 5 years when she is supposedly under the control of the "Alice program".
It's just all too disjointed.  Not to mention that they have to revert to Hitchcock to add something new to the horror.  Just did not work for me!  Maybe I'm just burned out on this storyline.   Yuck !

Fanboys, a review by Rich


Fanboys



Get ready for the comedy adventure that's "smart, funny, and tailor-made for the inner-Jedi in all of us" (Pete Hammond, Hollywood.com). In 1998, four childhood buddies with a shared love of all things Star Wars reunite for one final, hilarious odyssey. Their insane plan: a cross-country road trip to storm George Lucas' Skywalker Ranch and steal a copy of Episode I before it's released. With the police, a crew of angry Trekkies, and a crazy pimp hot on their trail, what could possibly go wrong? Featuring Dan Fogler (Balls of Fury), Jay Baruchel (Tropic Thunder), and Kristen Bell (Forgetting Sarah Marshall), plus a slew of hysterical surprise cameos, "the Force IS strong with this one!" (Brian Gallagher, MovieWeb)

One joke movie, that should have been put to sleep long before the ending. It is a geekfest overdone, do people really get so obsessed that they walk around in stormtrooper outfits and speak like Yoda? I'm sure some do, but it isn't entertaining. Not an original idea appears, we had a scene of accidentally walking into gay bar aka police academy, and the overused mistaken hookers in Vegas scene.
It was a laugh an hour, and not a belly laugh.
Another crap movie to avoid

Pete's Pilots, a review by addicted2dvd



The Crow: Stairway to Heaven
Exactly one year after being brutally murdered, rock musician Eric Draven returns to Earth, searching for a way to right what has been wronged and to reunite with his missing soul-mate Shelly Webster. Guided by a mystical Spirit Crow, he is neither living nor dead, possessing strange new powers to aid him in his search for revenge which, ultimately, must become a quest for redemption.

The Soul Can't Rest
On the first anniversary of his death, rock musician Eric Draven reappears, bent on revenge against those who brutally murdered both him and his soul-mate Shelly.

My Thoughts:
This is another series I bought blind when I found it cheap on sale. Actually it is one I got free in a buy one get one free sale. This series was a pleasant surprise to me. I have watched several episodes in the past and I have enjoyed it. I really need to get around finish off this show! The pilot episode does a good job of introducing the characters. The series has some good fight sequences in it. Which was the selling point of getting my mother hooked on the series. She always loved pretty much anything with martial arts in it. I especially enjoyed the final fight in this episode.
