Brainiac, a review by Jimmy




Title : Brainiac (2004)

Overview
Victims are found with their heads drilled and their brains literally sucked out. As the mysterious deaths pile up, Doctor Sunday Morgan, Assistant Laboratory Director at PsyMax, finds clues to a cover-up at PsyMax.

My Impression
This movie is stupid and pointless :yucky:
It's a remake of El barĂ³n del terror a mexican black & white movie made in 1962 that I've never seen, but I'm sure that it's a more enjoyable way to pass the time (all the mexican movie of this period that I've seen had a masked wrestler character, so even if they are boring we can watch a wresting match). Too bad this remake doesn't have a masked wrestler, since that would make the movie 1,000,000,000% better... But in place of that we get lousy acting, very bad special effects (Tom Savini must be ashame of himself, since he is responsible for them), a share holder meeting with 5 stockholder (the company is supposed to be on the New-York Stock Exchange), a strip club where the strippers dance with a bikini (this is probably the reason why the club had only 3 clients), a 17 years old Cheerleader who looks 35 and a story obvious from the beginning. Since I don't want to be too much negative, I've to find something positive...

Shadow Zone: The Undead Express, a review by addicted2dvd



Shadow Zone: The Undead Express
Out of the darkness, the grim reaper appears in a graveyard among headstones and gargoyles. Elegantly cloaked, but masked by shadows, his eyes burn yellow as he tells us we all have a little evil inside us. Take Zach Kincaid...

A lonely and intense 14-year-old horror movie junkie, Zach ('Chauncey Leopardi') is a good kid but a little confused as a result of his parents' recent break-up. Perhaps for this reason, he often tends to stretch the truth. His friends, J.T. Heffernan, a computer geek, and Gabrielle "Gabe" Lattanzi, a lovely, intellegent athlete, humor Zach, but knoe just how much to believe.

On the way home one weekend, Zach becomes lost on a deserted subway platform. When he stops for directions he is attacked, but recued in the nick of time by Valentine ('Ron Silver'), a self-styled vegetarian vampire from the turn of the century. Finding cold comfort in Valentine's assurance of protection, Zach runs for the first available train. Unfortunately he steps onto the Undead Express, which is full of vampires who are not, appartently, vegetarian...


My Thoughts:
This is the second time I watched this since I bought it. The first time during my month long horror marathon last month. This morning I decided to watch it with Brittany to see what she thought of it. I enjoyed this movie just as much this time as I did the last time I watched it. Sure it is not big on scares or Gore... but it is a fun movie that is good for the whole family. This movie would make a great addition to your Halloween tradition for your family. Brittany really enjoyed this one as well. She is glad I wanted to show it to her.

My Rating:
Out of a Possible 5

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


21. Graduation Day, Part 1 (1999-05-18)
Writer: Joss Whedon (Created By), Joss Whedon (Writer)
Director: Joss Whedon
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), Kristine Sutherland (Joyce Summers), Harry Groener (Mayor Richard Wilkins), Alexis Denisof (Wesley Wyndam-Pryce), Mercedes McNab (Harmony Kendall), Ethan Erickson (Percy), Emma Caulfield (Anya/Anyanka), Eliza Dushku (Faith), Armin Shimerman (Principal Snyder), James Lurie (Mr. Miller), Hal Robinson (Lester), Adrian Neil (Vamp Lackey #1), John Rosenfeld (Vamp Lackey #2)

I always liked the fight between Buffy and Faith at the end of this episode. I also like the romance building between Anya and Xander, which began in the previous episode and will be explored further in the upcoming seasons. And Willow's distaste for Anya is always fun, which has begun in Doppelgangland when she proposed (under the guise of Vampire Willow) to start killing by beginning with her (Anya).
Nice touch with the hangman playing. Interesting to see, that also in the US it seems to be common to play games in class at the end of a school year.
