Broken Arrow, a review by addicted2comics



Broken Arrow

The Plot: Terrorists steal nuclear warheads from the US military but don't count on a pilot and park ranger spoiling their plans.

My Thoughts:

This is yet another movie I didn't have high hopes for. I'm not into any war-type movie, and this is close enough. However, there was an aspect to it that kept me interested. There is a certain relationship between the rouge military pilot and his old partner that makes seeing them fight all the more climatic.

At some points the movie can really drag on, and some military terms and meetings just, idk, make you lose interest. Or maybe its just me.  :laugh: If its not in lamen's terms then I typically don't understand it!!

Inglourious Basterds, a review by Rich


WARNING - TARANTINO FANBOY REVIEW  :P



Title: Inglourious Basterds

Runtime:147
Certificate:18
Year:2009
Genres:Action, Adventure, War

Plot:My Review:
You have to admire the reliable Tarantino, he does deliver entertainment and films that will remain in your memory, clearly things he personally would want to watch, and despite the movie being overlong it fascinated me, from the superb atmospheric opening farm scene, to the inevitable vital climax. It is beautifully shot and full of interesting characters, some originality is missing but this is not a major negative on this occasion. This is a much more mature Tarantino offering than I expected, very much led by intelligent dialogue as opposed to special effects and gore, layered by chapters which mould to form the whole.
I felt the Basterds could have been developed better, but surprisingly they are just a part of the larger jigsaw in the movie which I hadn't realised before viewing. There are occasionally some very violent and cruel moments, but did not leave any bitter taste and were in context to help fatten up the characterisations. Not a masterpiece, but definately a great film.
The highest mention must go to actor Christoph Waltz, who's portrayal of Nazi Colonel Hans Landa is one of the best performances I have seen in recent years, absolutely flawless and deserving of recognition.

Angel Marathon, a review by DJ Doena


Disc 3

Lullaby
Synopsis: Angel is confronted by Holtz who manages to trap Angel for a short time. But then Lilah bursts in and unwittingly explains to Holtz that Angel has a soul now. In the meantime Darla's water is broken but she seems to be unable to give birth to the child.

My Opinion: Will Lorne's bar ever be re-opened? The episode was OK as an episode of transition.

Dad
Synopsis: As predicted, several groups are after the newborn child and Angel has to care for his son as a single parent. The others offer their help but Angel seems unwilling to accept it.

My Opinion: How suddenly the world changes when one becomes a father. It's also funny to see how adult people resort to baby babbling. And I like the name Connor.

Birthday
Synopsis: Cordelia gets once again a vision but this time she falls into a coma and awakes in an astral body beside her own. The demon Skip explains to her that a human body isn't strong enough to get the visions of the "Powers That Be" for a longer period of time. He gives her a choice, to die or to never have met Angel in L.A..

My Opinion: A "What if" episode. Cordelia has certainly come a long way since her days in Sunnydale or the beginning of "Angel". If you think back of how she despised demons. Not even Doyle dared to open up to her. That makes the step she took even bigger. But I seriously hope that there aren't too many side effects to this.
