Mulholland Drive , a review by Jon


Mulholland Drive *****

Year: 2001
Director: David Lynch
Rating: 15
Length: 147 Min.

In MULHOLLAND DRIVE, David Lynch takes the viewer on a memorable neo-noir trip through Hollywood's dark underbelly in a mystery that blurs the lines between fantasy and reality and features astonishing performances from Naomi Watts and Laura Harring. Lynch dispenses with a conventional narrative in favour of a hallucinogenic assault on the senses that will stay with you long after the credits roll.

At the end of Mulholland DriveThe Elephant Man and ending with A Straight Storyisdoes matter. It might be surreal, yet it makes a twisted sort of sense.

Terminator Series, a review by Peter von Frosta


Well this wasn't much of a marathon, nevertheless:

The Terminator
The original unstoppable killer-robot movie. It's B-movie style and limited dialogue makes this movie unforgettable.
9/10

Terminator 2 (theatrical version)
I don't really like the SE version too much, it's too long, overexplains things and Arnie talks too much. But I still like the two unstoppable maschines clash storyline. The theatrical version has great pace, great action sequences and still cool computer animations *gg*
8,5/10 (yes, I like The Terminator better)

Terminator 3 - rise of the maschines
It's not as bad as people make it. I agree that some of the action sequences with the animated Terminators throwing each other through the rooms is silly, and Schwarzenegger is getting kinda old, but I thought the Skynet idea was quite original. And I like Nick Stahl better than Eddie Furlong.
7/10

Plot:
The Historic Second Series

England 1558-1603. The filthy genes of the Blackadder dynasty bubble back to the surface of the melting pot of history as Lord Edmund, arrogant peer-about-town, swaggers back with a big head and small beard in search of grace and favour from stark raving mad Queen Bess. Accompanied by a small rabble of be-ruffed riff-raff - bottom-breath Baldrick and pea-brained Percy - the serpentine Lord Blackadder lower the whole tone of England's Golden Age.

Black Adder
2.01 Bells
Writer: Richard Curtis (Writer), Ben Elton (Writer)
Director: Mandie Fletcher
Cast: Rowan Atkinson (Edmund Blackadder), Tim McInnerny (Lord Percy), Tony Robinson (Baldrick), Miranda Richardson (Queen Elizabeth I), Stephen Fry (Lord Melchett), Patsy Byrne (Nursie), Gabrielle Glaister (Kate), Rik Mayall (Flashheart), John Grillo (Dr. Leech), Edward Jewesbury (Kate's Father), Barbara Miller (Wisewoman), Sadie Shimmin (Young Crone)

At hasn't been that long ago that I have watched this episode, so I am just writing up a review now. With the second series, Blackadder got really great. I just love Queenie. And Blackadder is now really a fun character.
I also really like this first episode. Blackadder falling for "Bob" has some really great scenes.
