Buffy the Vampire Slayer, a review by DJ Doena

March, 1st

Kristy Swanson    ...    Buffy
Donald Sutherland   ...    Merrick
Paul Reubens   ...    Amilyn
Rutger Hauer   ...    Lothos
Luke Perry   ...    Pike
Michele Abrams   ...    Jennifer
Hilary Swank   ...    Kimberly
Paris Vaughan   ...    Nicole
David Arquette   ...    Benny
Stephen Root    ...    Gary Murray
Thomas Jane    ...    Zeph

Synopsis: Buffy is a normal highschool freshman and member of the cheerleading squad. But then she meets Merrick and he shows her what she really is: The Chosen One, a Vampire Slayer. Born with the strength and skill to fight the Vampires, to stop the spread of their evil and the swell of their numbers. But she wants to stay a normal girl and wants nothing to do with such rubbish.

My Opinion: This movie may not be what Joss Whedon had intended or will do on the TV show. But it definitivly falls into the category of "guilty pleasure" and is a lot of fun if you're willing to accept its cheesiness. And the dialogue is unmistakably Whedon. Also, Lothos used a Samurai Katana, that's a plus in the book. ;D

The Duel at Silver Creek, a review by Rogmeister

The Duel at Silver Creek (1952)  77m
Director: Don Siegel
Cast: Audie Murphy, Faith Domergue, Stephen McNally, Gerald Mohr, Susan Cabot, Lee Marvin

Hey, this movie came out the year I was born...this DVD has a terrific-looking print of this 58-year old movie, though it has no extras apart from the theatrical trailer.  The movie deals with a large group of claim jumpers who force miners to give up deeds to their claims...and often repay them by killing them.  Audie Murphy plays a young man whose father is killed...he winds up the deputy of the fast-drawing sheriff.  The action is fast and furious in this oater filled with gunplay and horse chases.  For some reason, most of the main cast members have nickhames...Audie is The Silver Kid, the sheriff is known as Lightning, a couple of the bad guys are Rat Face and Johnny Sombrero and the girls are referred to as Dusty and Brown Eyes.  One fly in the ointment for the good guys is the marshal has suffered a wound and can no longer pull the trigger on his six-gun with his good hand.  Of course, you know the good guys are going to prevail...right?   ;D

Sliders Marathon, a review by addicted2dvd

Sliding into a world where a mysterious fog covers half the land, the Sliders find Rickman and the Quinn that, in the Pilot episode, taught Quinn the mechanics of sliding.

My Thoughts:
While a somewhat weird episode... it is a good one. I did ejoy it. Though it is not the best episode I ever seen. Wade and Maggie is still in the outs at this point.

My Rating:

Remmy and Quinn, on a short vacation together, need to get back to Maggie and Wade for the slide, and hitch a ride with a wildlife smuggler. When the plane crashes, Wade and Maggie hook up with the smuggler's partner and go in search of the group.

My Thoughts:
This is another one I didn't care for quite as much as the others. I don't know why... but this one just didn't keep my intrest as much.

My Rating:

The Sliders find what's left of the colony from Rickman's world. But Rickman is there, too, claiming more victims, as are the dinosaurs that inhabit this world.

My Thoughts:
This is a good episode. In this one we get an update on the colonists... and have some dinosaur fun as well!

My Rating:

The Sliders arrive on a world where vampires are real, and where Rickman is up to his old tricks - but refined by access to a blood bank

My Thoughts:
They are vampires... what do you think my thoughts are?... I loved it! But why did they have to make the vampires a rock band? At least while there is some music in the episode... they really didn't over do it.

My Rating:

The sliders land on an island populated by half-human, half-animal hybrids. Rickman is on this world, and has had to resort to using the mixed DNA for his sustenance, resulting in his own animal-like appearance.

My Thoughts:
This is a pretty good conclusion to the season. I know this episode was a rip off of a movie. Though can't think of the name of it especially since I never seen it.  But what really got me was the season end cliffhanger that really got me wanting to start the next season.

My Rating:
