My Thoughts:

Not bad although I wasn't stuck on Sting's performance as Dr. Frankenstein. He wasn't nearly brash or bold enough for a man with a God complex. Jennifer Beals was ok as The Bride although I found her inexplicably creepy.  :-\

I thought the much better sub-plot was the adventures of Victor the monster excellently played by Clancy Brown and his diminutive friend Rinaldo the circus midget. Their steadfast friendship in a cruel world was uplifting.

Cary Ewles makes an appearance as the prissy, pretty boy like he has in so many other movies. I was so glad to see him cut off his own leg in Saw.

This is a below average foray into the Frankenstein world as far as I'm concerned.

The Little Mermaid, a review by Tom




Title: The Little Mermaid
Year: 1975
Director: Karel Kachyna
Rating: FSK-0
Length: 85 Min.
Video: Full Frame 1.33:1
Audio: German: Dolby Digital Mono
Subtitles:

Stars:Extras:
Scene Access

My Thoughts:
There are a lot of Czech fairy tale movie which were also quite popular in Germany. I have reviewed a few before. This one is a much more faithful adaption of "Little Mermaid" than the Disney version, including the tragic ending. But I didn't enjoy this movie. It was very boring for me. It took about 40 minutes until the mermaid finally met the prince (about half of the total runtime). And even after that it was painful to watch. Mostly because of the horrible German dub I assume. Maybe it would have been better to hear more natural voices. But sadly this DVD release does not have the original Czech audio track.

The One Where It All Began: The Pilot Marathon, a review by DJ Doena


Married with Children



What's the show about?
Al Bundy sells (sometimes) women shoes. Peggy Bundy is a "housewive". They live together with their two children and lead a "normal" suburban life.

"Pilot"
The Bundys have got new neighbors: the Rhodes and Peggy decides to invite them over on the evening Al wanted to go to a basketball game.

My Opinion
MWC was a good show for its time, but I wouldn't watch it nowadays. I learned that lesson after I bought the first season.
