Alien Nation: Dark Horizon, a review by addicted2dvd

Weekend Movie Marathon
TV Show Reunion Movies
As huge of a TV Show fan as I am... it is no wonder I love the reunion movies. I think it is a whole lot of fun seeing all (or most) of the cast back together giving us at least one more adventure with the group. So now that I finally have enough of these reunion movies to do a marathon I thought I would so this weekend.

My TV Show Reunion Movies Consists of...
- A Very Brady Christmas (Watched 6/13)
- Alien Nation: Dark Horizon (Watched 6/13)
- Alien Nation: Body & Soul (Watched 6/14)
- Alien Nation: Millennium
- Alien Nation: The Enemy Within
- Alien Nation: The Udara Legacy
- Brady 500 (Watched 6/13)
- Death of The Incredible Hulk
- Dukes of Hazzard: Reunion! (Watched 6/14)
- Dukes of Hazzard: Hazzard in Hollywood (Watched 6/14)
- Get Smart, Again!
- The Incredible Hulk Returns (watched 6/15)
- Knight Rider 2000 (Watched 6/14)
- Rescue from Gilligan's Island
- Trial of the Incredible Hulk

If there is anything above that you would like to see me review... feel free to request it and I will do my best to fit it in.

So this weekend I am watching....

Alien Nation: Dark Horizon
The fate of the entire planet is on the line when Ahpossno, a ruthless Overseer, is sent to Earth to return the Tenctonese to slavery, and the casualties hit close to home for Francisco when a Purist group develops a virus designed to kill all Newcomers. Picking up right where the series left off, 'Dark Horizon' provides the stunning answers to several key unanswered questions.

My Thoughts:
I really liked how they did this reunion movie... Mainly because it takes over right where the series left off. And that is something that this series needed as it left off with a huge cliffhanger when the series was canceled. I am so glad that all the Alien Nation movies came out on DVD as I have never seen the reunion movies before. So it was great for me to see how they tied everything up from the series. I only watched the one movie in this set so far... but  I must say it looks like they really did a good job with this release. Audio/video quality is good... a nice selection of extras... though I would have liked to seen a trailer/TV spot for this one before I watched it... unfortunately there was none on the DVD.

Pumpkinhead 4: Blood Feud, a review by addicted2dvd

Weekend Mini-Marathon
12/13 - 12/14
Even though I am mostly concentrating on my Christmas Marathon this month... This weekend I wanted to watch some regular movies as well. Especially since I got a couple new movies yesterday as an early Christmas present. But since I am still doing a Christmas Marathon (at least 1 Christmas show per day till Christmas Day) what I watch this weekend will be a bit limited. So this weekend I decided to watch...

Pumpkinhead 4: Blood Feud
Although the blood feud between the Hatfields and the McCoys has been raging for decades, it's about to come to a grisly end. When Jodie Hatfield falls in love with Ricky McCoy, her two brothers' brutal attempt to break their engagement leads to the accidental death of Ricky's kid sister instead. Ignoring the ghostly warnings of Ed Harley himself (Lance Henriksen, PUMPKINHEAD, ALIEN vs. PREDATOR), Ricky calls upon Pumpkinhead – the legendary demon of vengeance – to avenge his kin by wiping out the Hatfields for good. As the carnage commences and Pumpkinhead slaughters any and all who get in his way, one thing remains certain: if a Hatfield is ever to marry a McCoy, it will be over their dead bodies.

My Thoughts:
This is one of the movies I just got on Friday from a good friend of mine. Before now I have only ever seen parts 1 and 2... luckily you don't need to see these in order to watch them as I am still missing part 3. I actually went into this movie not really expecting much... I mean after... it is part 4! And how often into a series of movies do they stay good that far in? It happens... but not that often. In this case I enjoyed this movie much more then I was expecting to. The story was good.... it had some cool killings... and the gore was stepped up a bit. I also had some reservations because the story was about the Hatfields and McCoys... but once we got into the story that didn't bother me too much either. Over-all I am really happy with this one... and glad my friend picked it out for me.

My Rating:
Out of a Possible 5

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

Babylon 5

What's the show about?
It's about Babylon 5. ;) About the people that lived, loved, fought and died there. Babylon 5 is a human-built space station oribiting an (presumably) uninhabited planet in neutral territory. It's a port of call and a place to come together, to negotiate, to keep the peace in the galaxy. But in this it failed. Instead, it becomes the last, best hope for victory against an ancient and very powerful enemy.

"The Gathering"
A human space station called Babylon 5 was built in neutral terrritory between several star empires including the Minbari Federation, the Narn Empire, the Centauri Republic and the Earth Alliance. The construction finished ten years after the Earth-Minbar war where the Minbari nearly annihilated the humans but then surrenderd on the eve of victory. Now the station is complete to prevent such wars and every race sends an ambassador including the mysterious race called the Vorlons. But when the Vorlon ambassador Kosh arrives he is attacked and things get out of hands.

My Opinion
My marathon.
Babylon 5 is one of my top-favourite Sci-Fi TV shows. It has a great story arc and superb characters.
