A world in crisis. Age-old enemies on the verge of attack. A mighty team is recruited, and Earth's ultimate hero is sought to lead them — Captain America. Unfortunately, he's been frozen in ice for over sixty years.

My Thoughts:
I got this through Amazon Marketplace very cheap. After watching it I feel like I got a heck of a deal... because I enjoyed every minute of it!  I was never familiar with The Avengers... but always liked both Captain America and Iron Man. But before this movie I never even heard of a few of them (Wasp, Giant Man & Black Widow). I really enjoyed seeing the team get together. I did get a kick out of the line where after seeing Thor, Giant Man asks "Who's the chick with the hammer" and Iron Man adds... "Whoever she is... I'm glad she is on our side"  :laugh:

My Rating:
Out of a Possible 5

The Funhouse, a review by GSyren


TitleThe Funhouse (5-027035-008813)
DirectorTobe Hooper
ActorsElizabeth Berridge, Shawn Carson, Jeanne Austin, Jack McDermott, Cooper Huckabee
Produced1984 in United States
Runtime95 minutes
AudioEnglish Dolby Digital 2-Channel Stereo
SubtitlesEnglish
OverviewThe carnival is a place for fun and laughter, but not for Amy and her friends. When their childish dare to stay all night in the spooky funhouse backfires, it leaves a trail of dismembered teenagers a mile long in Tobe Hooper’s classic video nasty era slasher.

Will anyone escape the clutches of the stumbling madman that stalks to sideshow? Is there no end to the carnival barkers chilling sadism? The only way to find out is ascend into the funhouse, where the games have no rules and the only prize on offer is a grisly demise.

Join us in The Funhouse. So much fun that you’ll never leave...Alive!
My thoughtsI bought The Funhouse on blu because I remember seeing pictures of the cool “monster”. But I should have known better. I should have remembered that I dislike movies with teenagers that do stupid things and end up in danger. It's a genre that just doesn't appeal to me. I like some of Tobe Hooper's films, like Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Poltergeist, Lifeforce and Invaders from Mars (even though I prefer the original). Not only do I dislike the genre, but I'm also so very tired of that old cliché “You think he's dead but he's not”. And they use it twice! Elizabeth Berridge looks so young in the opening sequence that when she goes topless you get the uncomfortable feeling of almost looking at kiddie porn.

It wasn't really scary. It wasn't funny. It didn't have very inventive death scenes. The monster mask was nice, but that's about all, and not nearly enough to make this a good movie, as far as I'm converned.

Tom's Buffy and Angel Marathon, a review by Tom


09. The Wish (1998-12-08)
Writer: Joss Whedon (Created By), Marti Noxon (Writer)
Director: David Greenwalt
Cast: Sarah Michelle Gellar (Buffy Summers), Nicholas Brendon (Xander Harris), Alyson Hannigan (Willow Rosenberg), Charisma Carpenter (Cordelia Chase), David Boreanaz (Angel), Seth Green (Oz), Anthony Stewart Head (Giles), Mark Metcalf (The Master), Emma Caulfield (Anya/Anyanka), Larry Bagby III (Larry), Mercedes McNab (Harmony Kendall), Danny Strong (Jonathan), Nicole Bilderback (Cordette #1), Nathan Anderson (John Lee), Mariah O'Brien (Nancy), Gary Imhoff (Teacher), Robert Covarrubias (Caretaker)

I love alternate reality stories just as much as time-travel stories.
Cordelia wishes from Anya (in her first appearance on the series), that Buffy never came to Sunnydale. The result: Vampire Willow :) and Vampire Xander. And the Master is still alive and ruling over Sunnydale. A fun What-If episode, which resulted in the even better Doppelgangland episode (which will follow later in this marathon).
