Every school has its share of space cadets, but this semester, MONtgomery STERling HIGH is about to get theirs, complete with real live ray-guns, in this spaced-out sci-fi comedy. When all-American average guy Norm Median meets fatally-attractive Candace Caine the first day of fall term, they're both too distracted to notice the weird new "transfer" students, even if they include a fashion-conscious zombie, a killer plant and a stone gargoyle. Hey, some kids are like that. But when their leader - famous inter-galactic terrorist Mr. Armageddon - drops in with global destruction on his mind, Norm has to think fast. The end seems near until Norm suggests challenging Mr. A's "team" to a basketball game for the fate of the earth. The stakes are high, if the planet is destroyed, it would seriously wreck Norman's chances with Candace but no one said being a senior was easy in the cosmically-campy campus comedy, MONSTER HIGH.

My Thoughts:
I found this Comedy Horror at Big Lots for only $3.00... thankfully I didn't pay more then that. I went in not expecting much of anything... but this is truly one extremely silly and cheesy movie. Sure there may have been a chuckle or two here and there... and the fact that it had some bare boobs for no apparent reason what so even didn't bother me either... but over-all it is pretty bad. It is not something I could recommend to anyone.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret Of The Ooze, a review by Dragonfire


Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret Of The Ooze



The Turtles are up to their shells in trouble when a canister of toxic ooze falls into the hands of the evil Master Shredder. Aided by their new pal Keno, the pizza deliver boy, the Turtles take on Shredder and his mutant allies, Rahzar and Tokka, to capture and destroy the dangerous ooze and make the world safe again for Turtles, humans and pizza!

My Thoughts

I saw this one in Walmart for $5 so I decided to go ahead and pick it up since I had enjoyed the first one.  This one has some entertaining moments too, though it isn't as good overall.  Things are much sillier in general...and entirely too silly in some scenes.  And Vanilla Ice turns up for some reason and does a horrible song.  I am still trying to block that from my memory.

The plot is sort of tied in to the first movie since it deals more with the ooze that is briefly mentioned in the first movie.  The plot has potential by dealing with Shredder returning and by dealing with the ooze.  Things just aren't handled as well as they could have been.  The Turtles are mostly fine, though they do act too silly at times.  They have their weapons, but they don't really use them, even in the fights.  It seems like there was a bit effort done to make the movie more child friendly.  Some of the humor works ok, but it could have been better.  The fights scenes do look good even though they are more light on violence.

The Turtles are basically the same as they were in the first movie.  I think the suits have been changed a bit.  The suits still look good and make things work.  April is played by a different actress.  She really doesn't have a lot to do in the movie.  Casey, who ends up being a fairly important character in the first movie, is completely missing in this one and he isn't even mentioned - unless I missed it.  That just seems odd.  A new character, Keno a pizza delivery guy is added and he sort of takes the place of Casey working with the Turtles.  Shredder still makes a decent villain. 

The movie is entertaining, but it isn't as good as the first one.  I would suggest this one only for people who like the Turtles.

I would have gone with a rating of 2.5 at Epinions, but since I don't have that option, I decided to go with 2.



I did get a review posted if anyone would like to take a look.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze

I don't have the third movie and haven't seen it, though I have seen the DVD for $5.  I haven't decided if I'll get it just to finish the set of the movies or not.

The Good Old Days TV Thread, a review by addicted2dvd


Star Trek
Season 1: Episode 4
The Naked Time
Original Air Date: 9/29/1966
Sent to pick up a research team, the U.S.S. Enterprise™ finds the scientists dead. One of the landing party brings the disease back to the crew, forcing suppressed emotions to the surface. Sulu becomes a modern day D'Artagnan. Lt. Kevin Riley shuts down the engines. Spock and Kirk are also affected. In one of the series' most powerful scenes, they help each other overcome their inner fears. Kirk races against time before the ship is pulled into the disintegrating planet.

My Thoughts:
I have not watched an episode of the original series in years! I really need to add more of these to my collection at some point. Right now I only have the first 10 of the original volume releases. This is a right good episode. The virus spread so fast... just from the slightest touch. While this is a good series... I prefer The Next Generation over it. For one thing I never cared too much for William Shatner. Then there is also just the better effects with the later series. But don't get me wrong... this one is still well worth watching!
