Cursed, a review by addicted2dvd


Wes Craven Movie Marathon
This time around I decided to do a marathon of some of my Wes Craven Movies. I have enjoyed a lot of Wes Craven's work. My favorite has to be the Nightmare on Elm Street Movies. Which I am sure I will get ATLEAST the first one in. So anyway... This time around I watched...

Cursed: Unrated Version
Packed with even more intense thrills than audiences experienced in theaters, this unrated version of Wes Craven's 'Cursed' brings you the terror of werewolves as never before! Christina Ricci ('Monster'), Jesse Eisenberg ('The Village'), Joshua Jackson (TV's 'Dawson's Creek'), Judy Greer ('The Village'), and Milo Ventimiglia (TV's 'Gilmore Girls') find themselves caught up in an unimaginable horror! A werewolf loose in Los Angeles changes the lives of three young adults who, after being mauled by the beast, learn that the only way to break the curse put upon them is to kill the one who started it all! From the creators of 'Scream', this never-before-seen version is shockingly more frightening and undeniably more fun than the original release!

My Thoughts:
I definitely wouldn't say this is the best Werewolf movie I ever seen... but I did enjoy it. I don't know what the theatrical version was like... but this one has a nice amount of gore in it. I tell you though... I did not think much of the werewolf dog scene. To me it just felt out of place. Other then that... the movie itself was fairly good. The DVD looks and sounds great.... and there is a few nice extras on this release.

1918, a review by Antares


1918 (1985) 2.5/5 - I can't for the life of me, understand how this film found the financing needed to be put into production. It's screenplay by Horton Foote is a hodgepodge of melodrama and unnecessary filler that at times reminded me of third rate Tennessee Williams. I know that Horton Foote was a hot commodity back in the mid-eighties with hits such as Tender Mercies and The Trip to Bountiful, but it seems as though he didn't quite know what to do with this story. Granted, the Spanish Flu epidemic of 1918 is probably not something that lends itself to nail-biting tension or deep rooted drama, but if you're going to use this theme, then keep it coherent. The screenplay moves too quickly for you to feel any compassion for its inhabitants, and leaves you feeling in the end, like they wheeled in a beautiful looking wedding cake that was made of 100% marzipan.

"Due South" marathon, a review by addicted2dvd


As I said in the other thread I got my set today. And well... I just couldn't help myself. I had to give the show a try. So I watched the pilot movie.

Due South: Pilot Movie
Robert Fraser is killed in a 'hunting accident' in the Northwest Territories, his son Benton investigates, which ends up leading him to Chicago, where he pairs up with a smart-aleck cop named Ray to find his father's killer.

My Thoughts:
OK... I must say... so far I like what I see. I really like the characters. This story did a really good job introducing everyone.... giving enough time to all the characters to give you a good feeling who they are. It did a good job showing someone that was truly out of place and the differences in the way he works compared to what they are used to. While watching this episode my mind kept flashing to the Dukes of Hazzard spin-off series called Enos... which was also about an out of place officer of the law (in that case a country cop) in the big city. I must say I am looking forward to watching more of this show. Though I must admit that I don't know how well the ghost of his father will fit into this series... such a supernatural twist to the show seems so out of place going by what I seen so far.

My Rating:
