Cube 2: Hypercube, a review by addicted2dvd

Cube 2: Hypercube
Eight strangers wake up in a bizarre cube with no recollection of how they got there and no idea of how to get out. They soon discover that they're in a deadly dimension where the laws of physics don't apply and they must unravel the secrets of the "hypercube" in order to survive.

TV Star:
Geraint Wyn Davies (Nick Knight on Forever Knight)

My Thoughts:
This is a really good sequel to an excellent movie. For some reason I really loved all the cube movies to date. I especially liked the higher tech traps in this one... though the first one was a little higher on the gore. I also liked Geriant Wyn Davies' character in this movie. He played it great in my opinion. If you liked the first one... but haven't seen this one yet... I would definitely recommend it.

Becoming Jane, a review by Antares

Becoming Jane (2007) 64/100 - While this was a beautifully shot film, it really didn't do much for me. Maybe it was the fact that Anne Hathaway seemed ill suited for the role, or it just came across as too modern an approach to telling a story that should have been much more prim. I found it very predictable and never really became invested in either of the two lead characters or their romance. I guess if you are into Miss Austen's novels, then this could be a delightful diversion. The DVD box mentioned that it was made by the producers of Shakespeare in Love, and a few times while I was watching, I felt like they were were trying to make a Georgian version, but lacking the wit of that film.

What the color coding means...

Teal = Masterpiece
Dark Green = Classic or someday will be
Lime Green = A good, entertaining film
Orange = Average
Red = Cinemuck
Brown = The color of crap, which this film is

Emma's Sonic Underground Marathon, a review by Emma (snowcat)

Disc 2

Episode 7 - Underground Masquerade

Manic slips in to his old thieving ways when he meets a band of child thieves, meanwhile Sleet and Dingo collect taxes for Robotnik but plan to steal them framing Manic for the theft.

I found this episode boring, the episode is mainly about the group of child thieves Manic meets, and how the underground try to use them in there band for there next performance, on the way they meet a disguised Dingo, who dressed as a child thief makes Manic feel out of touch. this episode felt more like filler then a real episode.

Episode 8 - Tangled Webs

Sonic meets up with an his old friend Cyrus, who he believes is a freedom fighter, although he soon finds that Cyrus is working for Dr Robonik and is tricking Sonic. As Sonic leads Cyrus to "Sanctuary" the place where the resistance children are raised, Cyrus is suddenly struck with a sense of morality and destroys his communicator.

So as with a few of the other moral episodes I quite liked this one, Cyrus works for Robotnik as his father has been captured, if Cyrus disobeys Robotnik will roboticise his father, and kill him (although its never actually said that this will kill him) When Cyrus disobeys and helps Sonic, Robotnik kills Cyrus's father, which again is not mentioned although the final scene shows Cyrus sitting buy a river crying as the hedgehogs go to comfort him.

Episode 9 - The Deepest Fear

On a trip to Port Mobius the hedgehogs learn that a sea monster Moby Deep is sinking the ships, Captain Squeege arrives to tell the hedgehogs of Robtniks scam, charging the citizens or protections from Moby Deep when really it is Robotnik who is causing the ships to sink. Sonic must overcome his fear of water, to save the port.

This was a strange episode, it starts off in a dream sequence which gives away the end of the episode, its also fairly obvious that this is the end of the episode at this point. Moby Deep is strange character a whale who just wants to help people, he gives sonic a ride to his siblings and sonic still does not overcome his fear of water, which is starting to become a running joke, sonic does not bathe or drink water according to his sister. As the ending was pretty much told at the beginning I did not feel like watched the episode, but I did although I have to say its one I didn't enjoy so much.

Episode 10 - Who do you think you are?

The siblings arrive in Tashistan is search of there mothers journal, whilst there Sonya bangs her head and looses her memory, she is quickly saved by Raphi a local freedom fighter. but will Sonic and Manic be able to get her memory back?

Again, an episode that felt out of place, it seems around the episode 6+ mark they ran out of ideas for a while, Manic and Sonic seem to spend most of the time walking right past Sonya and not finding her, they finally play a song and she is reminded of who she is. Sonya almost gets the chance to see her mother but just as she catches up Raphi is pulled into the sewers and has to be saved by Sonya.
