My Thoughts:
I always found this to be a fun movie... it is just hilarious. So many parts I could talk about that stands out as a good laugh. I especially liked the part that Gene Hackman played the blind man and had the monster over lighting his finger on fire. Even as much fun as it is there were a couple slow parts for me... and while it was still kinda funny... I didn't care for the musical number. I know... you are shocked that I wouldn't like that part! I did like the choice that they made when they decided on making this movie in black and white.. I thought it was a nice touch since they are paying homage to the classic horror. In my honest opinion this is Gene Wilder's best work... as I usually find him hit and miss. But it was Marty Feldman as Igor that stole the show. He was my favorite character in the movie. If by chance you never seen this film... it is one I highly recommend.

My Thoughts:
This is a movie I haven't seen since it was first released. That means the last time I saw this movie it was actually on VHS! So needless to say it was like watching it again for the first time... as I really remembered nothing about the movie going into it this morning. And I must admit... I enjoyed it quite a bit. The bickering back and forth between Will Smith and Martin Lawrence was entertaining. And all the gun fights and explosions was a lot of fun to watch as well. Now I may have to pop in Bad Boys II as I never got the chance to sen that one before.

Smallville Marathon #2, a review by DJ Doena


Siren
Synopsis: Oliver is back in town and Chloe helps him stealing data from Lex' computers. But then they are stopped by a new female vigilante. This person believes to do the right thing and stealing even from the rich isn't the right thing in her opinion.

My Opinion: It was totally funny to see how Lois tried to cover for Oliver by "distracting" Chloe and Clark from the not-so-secret-anymore chamber in Oliver's apartment. But I was sad to see that it didn't work out between them. That proves again the statement about the destiny of superheros.

Fracture
Synopsis: After Lois and Lex have found Kara (who has still no idea who she is), Lex gets a bullet directly into his head and nearly dies. The only way to find Lois and Kara is to get into Lex's head and Clark goes on this "journey".

My Opinion: It's good to know that even in Lex is a part that tries to fight against his own destiny. Although the chances are practically non-existant that he will ever win this fight. And the sad irony of this episode was that Lionel told his son that he loves him, but I think Lex is way beyond the point where he cares about that anymore. In the earlier seasons this was the one thing he wished that his father would say.

Hero
Synopsis: Pete's back! And he has meteor-enhanced abilities now. But he has no intention of hiding them. He doesn't want to live like Clark. But publicity comes with a price and sometimes that price can be too high.

My Opinion: I honestly didn't see that coming. I really loved this "special guest appearance" of Sam's. And apparently not everything has changed. Pete has found himself in pretty much the same situation as he was in the episode where he's left the show.

Traveler
Synopsis: Someone stuns Clark with tasers and Kryptonite and puts him in a cell surrounded by Kryptonite. In order to find and help him, Chloe and Lana consider bringing Kara to the Fortress, to have her memory restored. Meanwhile the daughter of Dr. Swann approaches Lionel and threatens him to reveal informations about a secret society called "Veritas" and proof that Lionel murdered the other members.

My Opinion: That didn't quite add up. It sounds unlikely that Lionel has known about a "traveler" since before the first meteor shower. Granted, he always has shown an interest in Clark, but if he actually knew about an alien, it wouldn't have taken him five years to figure it out, especially when it was he who engineered Clark's adoption. Additionally the sudden secret connections between the Queens, the Swanns, the Teagues and the Luthors didn't sound right, especially since meetings between Lionel and Virgil Swann have been onscreen.
