Do Not Adjust Your Set , a review by Tom


     Do Not Adjust Your Set (1967/United Kingdom)
IMDb | Wikipedia

(United States)
Length:280 min.
Video:Full Frame 1.33:1
Audio:English: Dolby Digital 1
Subtitles:


Plot:
Teatime 1968. In millions of homes in England something strange was happening and TV comedy around the world would never be the same again - 'Do Not Adjust Your Set'. Hitting audiences like a wet fish in the face it was weird, wonderful and above all hilarious. 'Do Not Adjust Your Set' combined the writing and performing skills of Eric Idle, Terry Jones and Michael Palin, added a dash of David Jason, a dollop of the legendary Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band and a hint of Terry Gilliam. Feast your eyes on the madness and discover how something completely different began....

This 2 DVD set features the recently rediscovered 9 episodes of the classic 'Do Not Adjust Your Set' series and a Comedy Family Tree poster booklet.


Do Not Adjust Your Set
1.01 Episode 1
This old series is written and stars three of the later Monty Pythons: Eric Idle, Terry Jones and Michael Palin. This is supposed to be a children's show but you wouldn't know this if not told so. You can already see some of the typical Python humor here.

Jesus Christ Superstar, a review by Jimmy


MOVIE / DVD INFO:


Title: Jesus Christ Superstar (1973)

Genre: Musical
Director: Norman Jewison
Rating: G
Length: 1h47
Video: Widescreen
Audio: English & French
Subtitles: English, French & Spanish

Stars:
Ted Neeley
Carl Anderson
Yvonne Elliman

Bob Bingham

Plot:
This dazzling interpretation of the hit Tim Rice – Andrew Lloyd Webber rock opera tells the story of Christ's (Ted Neeley) final weeks in a bold and epic production. Shot entirely on location in Israel, producer-director Norman Jewison creates a brilliant example of modern movie making with groundbreaking vision and the unforgettable songs of Rice and Webber. Nominated for several Golden Globe Awards including Best Picture, Best Actor and Best Actress, this legendary classic is now a must-have Special Edition

My Thoughts:
I agree I cheat a little, since this isn't an unknown movie at all but it's been a long time since I've reviewed a film here. I've appreciated this one a lot more than anticipated, I was "traumatized" as a young child with the broadcasting of another version of the Christ story every year here. The music is really good, in fact I listen the movie again while I write this. All the performers had great voices, but Carl Anderson who plays Judas and Yvonne Elliman who plays Mary Magdalene (she's quite beautifull also) are above the rest. The idea of filming the movie in the Israel desert is a real good one since the scenery is astounding. Love the fact that the story is tell from the point of view of Judas since we are able to understand his reasonning for the treason he will do later (hope that I haven't spoil the end of the story for anyone ::)). An interesting fact, at least for me, this movie is the first one of Paul Thomas who will became a couple of years later one of the best actor in the adult movies I love so much. One thing that was puzzling me while watching is the fact that we don't see Mary at all, but finally I've understand at the end... Tim Rice who had written the opera is British and they don't believe in the Immaculate Conception like us the Roman Catholics :slaphead:

Really there isn't a part of this movie that I haven't like. A sure recommandation for everyone except Pete :tease:

Buffy the Vampire Slayer Marathon, a review by addicted2dvd


Season 6: Disc 5

15. Hell's Bells
On the day of his wedding, Xander gets cold feet after he's shown a disturbing glimpse into the future.

My Thoughts:
This is a good episode. This is another one that has a lot of comedy mixed in with the serious stuff.

16. Normal Again
A demon's venom causes Buffy to hallucinate, convincing the Slayer that she's a normal girl in a mental ward, that her parents are alive, Dawn never existed, and her Slayer life is a delusion.

My Thoughts:
This one I liked a lot... has always been one of my favorites. Even if this story line is used in every Sci-Fi/Supernatural Thriller series out there. Just off the top of my head I seen it in both Charmed and Smallville. But I think this episode was done well... I enjoyed every minute of it.

17. Entropy
Anya, secretly a demon again, attempts to get vengeance on Xander.

My Thoughts:
Enjoyable... but just a basic good episode... nothing extra special about it really.

18. Seeing Red
Warren acquires a pair of demonic orbs that imbue him with strength and invulnerability, and he faces off with Buffy.

My Thoughts:
Good episode... one that ends with the beginning of the true "Big Bad" of the season.

Season 6: Disc 6

19. Villains
Tara's sudden death pushes Willow over the edge. After magically saving Buffy from her own wounds, Willow - consumed by anger and dark magic - hunts down Warren and tortures and kills him.

My Thoughts:
I really hated seen Tara out of the show... but I have to admit... I loved Evil Willow... She is very cool when consumed by the magic like this... and looking for revenge.

20. Two to Go
Buffy and Xander must protect Jonathan and Andrew, who are next on Willow's list. The Slayer is no match for Willow, who has drained Rack of all his powers.

My Thoughts:
Another good episode... Willow doing all she can to get to the final 2 members of the Trio geeks.

21. Grave
Giles faces off with Willow, but she drains him of his powers. This much power causes her to feel all the suffering in the world, so she decides to end it... the world, that is.

My Thoughts:
A great way to end the season... I loved how they finally ended  this one... with Willow being stopped without harming her... and with who stopped her. Definitely something not expected by the first time viewer.

Overall Season 6 Thoughts:
This season... in my opinion... is one that started out a bit on the slow side.. but really picked up quite a bit. By the end it has some of my favorite episodes with one of my favorite "Big Bads". Over all... well worth the time put into it to watch.
