Night Scream, a review by addicted2dvd



Title: Night Scream
Movie Count: 35
TV Ep Count: 8
Time Started: 10:30am
Plot:
Driven by unexplainable nightmares of a violent murder, Drew Summers (Candace Cameron Bure) mysteriously arrives in the small town of Steveston, Oregon, on the first anniversary of the death of Laura Fairgate - a young woman who died with her boyfriend (Casper Van Dien) in a murder/suicide that rocked the town.

Ray Ordwell (Denis Arndt), Laura's stepfather, is just concluding a moving speech to launch a week-long festival in his stepdaughter's honor when Drew approaches the stage in a trance-like state and announces that she's Laura. Laura's mother Julie (Teri Garr) wants desperately to believe that Drew really is possessed by her daughter's spirit, but the townspeople, who want nothing more than to put the tragedy behind them, believe Drew is simply putting on an act.

As she confronts a conspiracy of silence from the Steveston residents and the town sheriff (Bobby Hosea), Drew starts to question her sanity. With increasingly vivid images to spur her on, she begins to uncover clues into the strange murder/suicide mystery. But the closer Drew gets to the truth, the more in danger she is of learning what happened to Laura - the hard way.

My Thoughts:
This movie here is another complete blind buy... but I picked it up for 2 reasons. First it was really cheap ($3.99) and also because it has Candace Cameron Bure (DJ on Full House) in it. Turns out this is a TV Movie... but that is ok... I have a lot of TV Movies that I really enjoy. Thankfully this one is no exception. I enjoyed every minute of this movie. It is not what I would call a straight out horror... it is more of a mixture of a ghost story and murder mystery. I am happy I added this one to my collection. I just wish they would have added some sort of extras on the disc. But this one has nothing at all when it comes to extras. The only menu options on this DVD is Play Movie and Scene Selection.

Hellboy, a review by Rich




Title: Hellboy

Movie Count:3 
TV Ep. Count:2 

Runtime:122
Certificate:PG-13
Year:2004

Plot:As dark forces gather to hasten the Apocalypse, Hellboy fights fire with fire in this mind-blasting supernatural action-adventure from the visionary director of Blade 2. Based on the celebrated Dark Horse comic book.

My Review:
Daft but enjoyable, a fairly reasonable adaptation.
A nice blend of action, romance and comedy for this genre, with a cool lead by Ron Perlman and a particularly memorable dark villain in Kroenen.
Action is fairly much non-stop and well portrayed, albeit slightly too many fight scenes IMO.
The biggest downside for me, besides HB's weird love of stray cats, was his apparent infallibility, you never really felt he was in any serious mortal jeopardy against any of the baddies.
Don't take this movie too seriously, and it can then be enjoyed.

The One Where It All Began: The Pilot Marathon, a review by DJ Doena


Airwolf



What's the show about?
Airwolf is a specially-equipped and -armored helicopter that can go supersonic. Stringfellow Hawke is the pilot of that gunship and he keeps it hidden from The Firm, a branch of the CIA who developed and built Airwolf. Hawke however uses the helicopter in missions for The Firm, mostly in Third-World-Countries and behind the Iron Curtain.

"Shadow of the Hawke"
Dr. Muffet is the creator of Airwolf but after a successful demonstrations he kidnaps the helicopter ti Libya from where he attacks french Mirages and sinks an US destroyer. Stringfellow Hawke is a former test pilot of Airwolf and he gets the assignment of returning Airwolf.

My Opinion
"Airwolf" is the total opposite to "The A-Team" when it comes to the death toll. Although I liked the show it became ludicrous when the Airwolf crew vistited "East Germany". But that can be said about almost every american movie/show in the 70s/80s, so I won't hold it against Airwolf.
