Curse of the Wolf, a review by Jimmy




Title : Curse of the Wolf (2006)

Overview
A young woman, Dakota (Renee Porada) has finally found a way to "control" her Lycanthrope metamorphosis and desires to live a "normal life". All might be well if not for Dakota's "pack", who wants a different life for Dakota... to live in werewolf immortality and hunt with them forever!

My Impression
Not too bad... Of course the werewolf make-up is a little bit weak, but it's understandable since the movie was probably made for less than 50,000$. The story is original and the highlight of this movie, and the reason I like it, are the numerous martial art fight. All those fight are well choreographed and look real to me, of course the fact that most of the cast members are specialist in different fighting technics help. Most of the acting isn't that great, but when one of those actors is Darian Caine who cares if this is well act or not ;) The music is annoying and don't really fit for the most part, the instrumental pieces are ok (the problem is the songs).

This isn't An American Werewolf in London, but this is certainly better than The Howling 2 and Bad Moon.

"Big Bang Theory" Marathon, a review by Rick


7. The Dumpling Paradox
Synopsis: Wolowitz gets a girl. Penny beats Sheldon at Halo. Sometimes truth is stranger than fiction.

My Thoughts:
I love the beginnings of these shows, and this one is no exception. Anyone who has used voice technology can relate with the phone sketch. And then the discussion on how to make up the lost 6 minutes from starting Halo late is very funny. When it was suggested to split the difference and cut short the three breaks by two minutes each Howard worriedly replies “If we’re having anchovies on the pizza we can’t take it out of bathroom time”  :laugh:

This is one of my favorite episodes. I love how penny not only can compete and keep up with the guys in Halo but she keeps blowing off Sheldon’s head.  :hysterical: The whole Halo scene was so freggin funny.

Fast forward to the restaurant… more  :hysterical: Sheldon honestly can't order without their being a forth. 

The end, with the Halo scene, Penny and her friends finishes the show perfectly. Great episode

Favorite line (Sheldon gets so many of these , and well deserved, but this one goes to Howard and Penny):
Penny walks into the apartment
Penny talks about her visitor and says “… and washing the sluttiest collection of underwear you have ever seen in my bathroom sink”
Howard excitedly asks (as he is leaning off the edge of the couch) “Is she doing it one thong at a time or does she throw it all in? Like some sort of erotic bouillabaisse?”


8. The Grasshopper Experiment
Synopsis: Rajesh flips over his gorgeous blind date. But she only has eyes for Sheldon. Sheldon?!

My Thoughts:
My least favorite episode so far. The most enjoyable parts were those involving Sheldon and Penny regarding his virgin Cuba Libres.

Favorite line: [Howard imitating Raj and making the date for him]


9. The Cooper-Hofstadter Polarization
Synopsis: Leonard and Sheldon go from physics to fisticutts when tempers flare at the symposium.

My Thoughts:
Another fantastic beginning (controlling the house via the www).

I loved the closet scene. Poor Leonard, trying to explain everything to Penny.

Favorite line: [Sheldon trying to blow up Leonard’s head]


10. The Loobenfeld Decay
Synopsis: Sheldon cannot tell a lie. He has to tell at least seven. And they are all "un-unravelable!"

My Thoughts:
One word to describe this whole episode

Un-unravelable  :hysterical:


11. The Pancake Batter Anomaly
Synopsis: Everyone knows to head to the hills when Sheldon gets sick. Everyone except Penny, that is.

My Thoughts:
A side of Sheldon we didn’t know, but not unexpected. I loved him using lime jello to grow his germs.

Favorite line: Penny singing “Soft Kitty” as she rubs Sheldon’s chest (counter clockwise of course) 


11. The Jerusalem Duality
[b[Synopsis:[/b] When a child prodigy arrives on campus, Sheldon graciously sets out to destroy him.

My Thoughts:
Great episode although I did miss Penny. I think her interaction with the four guys is what makes the show. Not that all the scenes have to have her, it was funny watching Sheldon visiting his co-workers. “So, it’s a shelf” :laugh:

Favorite line: I agree with Achim on this, “Build it and they will come” has to be the best



2 down, 1 to go. I’m waiting to watch the S:2 premiere until I finish with disc 3.
