Ghostbusters, a review by DJ Doena

March, 21st

Director: Ivan Reitman

Bill Murray    ...    Dr. Peter Venkman
Dan Aykroyd   ...    Dr. Raymond Stantz
Sigourney Weaver   ...    Dana Barrett
Harold Ramis   ...    Dr. Egon Spengler
Rick Moranis   ...    Louis Tully
Annie Potts   ...    Janine Melnitz
William Atherton   ...    Walter Peck
Ernie Hudson   ...    Winston Zeddmore

Synopsis: Peter, Ray and Egon are scientists in the widest sense of the word. They studied psychology and parapsychology and their experiments are on the fringe of actual science.
Their life changes drastically when the university fires them and the Sumerian God called Gozer tries to enter this world via Dana Barrett's fridge.

My Opinion: It's still a very funny movie and I still enjoy all the physical jokes in it, e.g. when they get slimed on or when they destroy a ball room with their proton packs or when Ray thinks of the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man.
But I have to say that I was a bit disappointed by the quality of the Blu-ray. Especially in front of dark backgrounds you can see a lot of grain. They either didn't clean up the picture at all or they didn't do a very good job at it.

Score, a review by Jimmy


                    DVD Cover                                            Theatrical Poster

Title: Score
Year: 1972
Genre: Comedy
Director: Radley Metzger (The Opening of Misty Beethoven)         
Rating: Unrated
Length: 1h29
Video: Widescreen
Audio: English

Claire Wilbur (Teenage Hitch-hikers)
Calvin Culver (The Opening of Misty Beethoven)
Lynn Lowry (The Crazies)
Gerald Grant (Naked Came the Stranger)
Carl Parker (The Image)

My Thoughts:
Radley Metzger is the best director when we talk of erotic movie and this film is not an exeption. This is the last softcore movie that he direct before he takes the pornographic road for 3 years as Henry Paris. Just this 3 years he had done some of the best adult movie ever made : The Opening of Misty Beethoven (a favourite of mine), The Private Afternoons of Pamela Mann, The Image and Naked Came the Stranger (sadly the DVD is heavily cut). But I'm not here to talk about this phase of his career.

The Score is base on a sucessfull off-broadway show about a sexual game play by one couple. Everyone is well cast in the film even Lynn Lowry (I'm not a big fan of her) in the role of the innocent young married woman. The movie was made in Croatia and the location add to the beauty of it. This film is highly erotic and I have just one warning to make. The game played by Elvira and Jack as one goal : Seduce a member of the same sex, so if this idea repulse you don't watch this. Habitually nobody had a problem with a girl-girl scene, but that's not the same thing with the opposite. Metzger is the only director who can make a man-man scene erotic, there are no penetration shot but Culver and Grant french-kiss each other, caress themselves mutually and use their mouth for something else than kissing (we don't see it really, but I'm sure that you understand what it is). This scene is intercut with the one of Lowry & Wilbur and the editing, the way it's film and the music use make of this one of the best scene I've seen in an erotic movie.

If you can forget the homosexual aspect this is a movie that you could appreciated. I'm 100% straight and I think that it's a masterpiece. Give it a chance, you could be very surprise and discover one of the best director of the sixties and the seventies. 

Rating :  ;D

Babylon 5: Marathon, a review by DJ Doena

Disc 6

Objects at Rest

Synopsis: The episode of departure. Stephen takes his job on Earthdome, Ta'lon becomes the new Narn ambassador and Sheridan and Delenn leave for Minbar, where they surprisingly meet Londo who has a gift for their unborn child.

My opinion: A quiet episode which brings the immideate story to an and. But as Londo would say "Their story isn't over yet."

Sleeping in Light

Synopsis: 2281. 19 years after the fith season. Sheridan is going to die and he invites the old friends who are still alive: General Ivanova, Garibaldi,Dr.  Franklin, Emperor Cotto and Zack Allen. Then he goes to Babylon 5 which is about to be decommissioned (read: to be blown up). After that he goes to Corriana 6, the place from where the Vorlons and the Shadows have left the galaxy. And Lorien awaits him there.

My opinion: A very emotional episode. To be honest, I cry every time when I see it. And that doesn't happen very often, after all I know it's just a TV show. But I can't help it with this one.

BTW: The service technician that shuts down the lights on B5 just before it is blown up, is JMS himself.

Season analysis: In the big picture it's one of the weaker seasons of that show but in the second half it's very good and the ending is magnificent.
