Creepshow, a review by addicted2dvd
Movie Count: 59
TV Ep Count: 17
Time Started: 4:45am
Two macabre masters - writer Stephen King and director George A. Romero - conjure up five shocking yarns, each a virtuoso exercise in ghouls-and-gags style of classic 50's horror comics. A murdered man emerges from the grave for Father's Day cake. A meteor's ooze makes everything... grow. A professor selects his wife as a snack for a crated creature. A scheming husband plants two lovers up to their necks in terror. A malevolent millionaire with an insect phobia becomes the prey of a cockroach army. Add the spirited performances of a fine cast (Hal Holbrook, Adrienne Barbeau, Leslie Nielsen, Ted Danson, E.G. Marshal and King himself) and the ghoulish makeup wizardry of Tom Savini. Let the 'Creepshow' begin!
This is one of my favorite anthology movies. I think my favorite segment was the one where "A scheming husband plants two lovers up to their necks in terror."... this was the one where Leslie Neilson buried the couple to their necks in the sand on the beach... waiting for the high tide to come. That one then followed closely by the "crated creature" Fluffy. But of course I enjoyed all the segments.

The Wild West is about to rise again in this horrifying and gory tale of the walking undead. When a strange body is exhumed from a forgotten graveyard, a vampire from the Old West is re awakened, and she's had a long time to be hungry. Now, it's up to the unfortunate souls who found her to send the creature back to Hell before their town is overrun by bloodthirsty evil.
Cowboys and vampires!
It was a good idea, and their hearts were in it but this is about as amateur as you can get. I'd hardly call this a movie... more like a high school visual arts project, and I've seen better of those. I find it absolutely miraculous that a studio and distribution company, let alone Lionsgate, would actually put their name to this fiasco.
Avoid at all costs.

NCIS Marathon, a review by addicted2dvd
NCIS: Season 4: Disc 3
9. TWISTED SISTER
McGee takes matters into his own hands after his teenage sister appears at his door bloodied and confused.
This one is a very good episode. One of my favorites. I liked getting to meet McGee's sister... and loved that she let the cat out of the bag about McGee's book.
Working in tandem with the FBI, the NCIS team makes a shocking discovery wehn they identify the remains of a serial killer.
This is another one I enjoyed quite a bit. Though not quite as much as the previous one. I did like how they put a little twist into the ending of this one.
A highly classified robotic device is sabotaged and kills a Navy lieutenant who was working on an important project for the Department of Defense.
I enjoyed this one as well. Even though it is somewhat standard... it has some good moments.
A high-level Marine intelligence officer is murdered in a small-town motel room. The NCIS team rushes to the scene of the crime only to discover the local authorities have disrupted the crime scene and performed an autopsy days earlier.
This one is alright... but it really didn't impress me too much. I did like the small town forensic scientist though. I would have liked to seen her come back for some more episodes. Unfortunately the rest of the episode was pretty standard... and somewhat slow.
