Eight Legged Freaks, a review by Dragonfire


Eight Legged Freaks



What do you get when you cross toxic waste with a bunch of exotic spiders?  Eaten!
The townies of Prosperity, Arizona, will all become a screaming smorgasbord if mutated arachnids as big as SUVs have their way in this comedy/horror crowd-pleaser whose creators include the producers of "Independence Day" and "Godzilla."  Spiders that leap like gazelles, web-spitting spiders, spiders that suck your insides out as if through a straw - they're among the behemoths conjured up by an inventive effects team.  David Arquette heads the two-legged stars, mobilizing the citizenry in a last-ditch fight to survive.  Here's hoping they succeed.  Otherwise Prosperity - maybe the world - may be reduced to one giant, uh, website!

My Thoughts

This is more like a comedy or spoof of horror movies, but I still consider it a type of a horror movie since it involves giant mutant spiders eating people.  In real life, I tend to freak out if I see a spider.  However, for whatever reason, it doesn't bother me a bit to see spiders in a movie. 

The stuff going on in this movie is silly and not that believable, but I think it makes an entertaining movie.  It doesn't scare me at all.  It reminds me a bit of some of those older monster type movies that have some kind of mutant monster attacking people.  I tend to like some of the goofier horror type movies, which this one definitely is.  There really isn't any suspense or mystery to the movie and many things are predictable, which will probably bother some people.  The plot is probably too silly in general for some viewers.  The acting is fine without anything that really stands out one way or the other. 

I just think it is an entertaining movie that I still enjoy even after seeing it several times.



I did get a review posted on Epinions if anyone wants to take a look. :)

Charmed Marathon, a review by addicted2dvd


Charmed: The Final Season
Get ready for the ultimate ride in supernatural entertainment! In 'Charmed': The Final Season, the magical Halliwell sisters Phoebe (Alyssa Milano), Piper (Holly Marie Combs) and Paige (Rose McGowan) face their biggest challenges in love, life and death as they try one last time to fulfill their destiny! Join them in their fight to protect Leo from the Angel of Death, and witness their devastating battle when demons conspire to take over the Underworld! 'Charmed': The Final Season's 6 discs deliver 22 episodes of nonstop thrills, suspense and a climactic finale! The 'Charmed' Ones are ready. Are you?

Disc 1:

1. Still Charmed & Kicking
Presumed dead, the Charmed sisters start a demon-free existence with new identities, but Paige can't escape her Whitelighter instincts and answers the call of a young witch named Billie.

My Thoughts:
A decent season opener. Even though I know why they had to do it the way the did... I didn't care much for the whole "disguise" phase at the beginning of this season. We get our first look at the new witch in town, Billie. Even though she is left as a mystery in this episode. Finally we get extras on a season of Charmed. And this particular episode has a commentary track with Kaley Cuoco who plays Billie... the newest addition to the Charmed family.

2. Malice in Wonderland
The Charmed Ones come to Billie's rescue when she tries to stop Haas, a young demon who wants to lure the sisters out of hiding and take over the Underworld.

My Thoughts:
Another decent episode. In this one Billie joins up with the Charmed Ones.

3. Run, Piper, Run
When Piper's adopted appearance as a woman wanted for murder gets her arrested, the sisters and Billie set out to clear the woman's name.

My Thoughts:
This was a good episode. First time in my memory that the main storyline didn't involve demons. They are actually trying to right a human wrong.

4. Desperate Housewitches
Piper's son, Wyatt, is kidnapped by Mandi, a demon in disguise who wants to use the boy's powers to bring back The Source and create the perfect demon family.

My Thoughts:
This was a good episode. Probably my favorite episode on this disc. In this episode The Charmed Ones finds out that Magic School has been taken over by demons. And they need to once again deal with The Source. At least this time it was settled in only one episode.
