My Thoughts:
I thought it was about time for another one out of that low budget 50 movie boxset Mortuary of Madness that I got for about $15. I already enjoyed enough of the few movies I watched so far to make the purchase worth the price... but am hoping there will be more in it to enjoy.

OK... I admit it. I got curios about this one from the title alone. Of course I went into this one expecting a big steaming pile of crap. Unfortunately that is exactly what I got this time. This movie... and I hate to even call it that... looked to be no more then a bunch of college buddies playing with an old VHS camcorder. The acting was pitiful... the effects was non-existent... and the video quality sucked. It looked like it came directly from an old VHS tape... with wavy lines and all.

At least I don't feel too cheated since this movie did come in such a large boxset and I already felt I got my money worth before I even got to this one. But if I bought this one by itself I would have been extremely disappointed as this one would rank right there with The Sorority and The Curse of Lizzie Borden. I could not in good faith even give this movie a half a star.

My Thoughts:
This is a movie I bought Brittany for her Birthday the other day. This is a TV Movie that originally aired on Nickelodeon. This movie is cute enough... and has a few laughs. But it is definitely geared more towards the kids then it is adults. Brittany enjoyed it quite a bit though so I am happy about that.

My Thoughts:
I am so glad I decided to watch this movie this morning. The Uninvited has to be the best movie I have watched in a while. Sure there are some logic flaws in this film and some scares that seem a bit forced but over all I really enjoyed every second of this movie. And without going into detail I didn't see that ending coming. If you haven't done so yet... I recommend checking this one out.

My Thoughts:
This is another movie out of the Mortuary of Madness boxset. after that last one I watched from it I am a little leery of watching another from the set. But then there has been a few here that I did enjoy so figured time to chance another one. I am glad I picked this one to watch... as while I have seen better... this one is pretty good. I enjoyed both stories featured in this Anthology.

My Thoughts:
I figured what the heck... I will watch another movie from the Mortuary of Madness set. This time I didn't fair out that well. The acting was bad.... for an erotic movie they could have picked better looking women... And the story was in need of improvement. I mean the story did have potential... but unfortunately the writer just couldn't pull it off. I think with a better script, a better cast... and maybe a little more of a budget this movie could have been something. But as it is this one is no more then very mildly entertaining.

V: The Original Miniseries



Fifty spaceships, each three miles across, hover ominously above Earth's major cities. The Visitors that emerge are humanlike in appearance and extend the hand of friendship. Our planet's resources are just what these aliens need to survive. And for its future survival, unsuspecting humankind will need... a miracle!

Kenneth Johnson's science-fiction spectacular V mixes dynamic special effects with cliffhanger thrills. As fascist rule enslaves the globe, freedom fighters battle to save our species. Marc Singer [The Beastmaster] heads an epic-sized cast of human defenders and - behind sleek uniforms and benevolent behavior - reptilian invaders. For unparalleled extraterrestrial excitement, the invaders of V are unstoppable.

My Thoughts

I saw this back when it originally aired on tv.  I consider it a movie because of the length.  Since it had been so long since I watched this originally, I had forgotten a lot of things about the movie.  I think it has held up well overall though certain things do look dated.  The story is very interesting and entertaining.  Certain things may not be the most original since they are obviously influenced by the real events during WWII and what the Nazis did, but I think it works wonderfully well.  There really isnt a lot of violence and not that much action, though there is some in a few scenes.  There is more focus on how the various characters deal with what is going on.  The characters are good, though Robin did irritate me a few times.  Diana is one of the few things I remembered and I still think she is a very effective villain.   I still really enjoyed this movie. 



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

Pete you don't seem to follow my advice (even if we agree on the movies I've reviewed in my marathon). But seriously don't watch The Slasher, Brainiac and Kill Syndrome... they are bad and not just a little bit.

If you have some time to kill try to watch Alucard, I would like to see your comment about it since you are the vampire fan...

A Bothered Conscience is great also Wink

V: The Final Battle



Is there life out there? Finally we know. Because they are here. Alien spacecraft with humanlike passengers have come to Earth. They say they come in peace for food and water. The water they find in our reservoirs. The food they find walking about everywhere on two legs.

That saga that began with V now culminates in a struggle to save the world in V: The Final Battle. Sci-fi film stalwarts Marc Singer, Robert Englund and Michael Ironside head a large cast in this tense adventure that leaps from the stunning revelation of reptilian beings concealed by human masks to the birth of the first human/spaceling child to the harrowing countdown to nuclear doomsday. The future begins or ends here.

My Thoughts

Im using this one for F.

This one is a good follow up to the original V.  This one picks up a little while after the end of the first one and continues the main story of the resistance fighting the Visitors.  It is 3 parts instead of 2, so a bit more happens.  There is more action since there are more fights throughout this one, and the attention to the characters suffers a bit.  The plot continues to be interesting and entertaining and it works well as a sequel to the first movie.  Many of the same characters return and there are a few new ones as well.  I did wonder where an older couple that had been fairly important in the first one was.  Diana continues to be a wonderful villain.  A bit more is shared about her, including how far she is willing to go to achieve what she wants.  Overall, this is another very entertaining movie.
