My Thoughts:

Very enjoyable. Some people at work blabbed the ending quite some time ago so the ending wasn't a shock... but it would have been. It was also a different, and better IMO, ending than the book.

Marcia Gay Harden's brilliant performance as the doomsday zealot made this movie worth watching alone. Her character was far scarier than the nasties outside.

The anguish at the end was very real.... choosing wrong can cost so much.

My Thoughts:
Fitting for the original trilogy, I have watched Spaceballs now. I must confess, that when I have first seen Spaceballs, I haven't seen any of the Star Wars movies yet.
I had enjoyed Spaceballs very much in the past. It doesn't quite hold up now, but I still enjoy it to a certain degree.
This is one of those movies, where I had seen the German dub so often, that I miss some of the German joke translations when watching it in English.

Dark Angel Marathon, a review by addicted2dvd


Season 1: Disc 5

15. Haven
Max accompanies Logan to a once-thriving community, now devastated after the pulse, to meet with the town's retired sheriff (his Eyes Only) contact. The locals are hostile toward Max and Logan, believing them to be hold-overs from the pre-pulse days. While Logan is meeting with his contact, Max starts to feel ill and having seizures. She befriends a local teen who Max comes to realize is alienated from the rest of the town.

My Thoughts:
This one I found to be really interesting... even though of course there was some... the action was not as plentiful as it usually is in this series... but the story was really good.

16. Shorties in Love
When Diamond, an old girlfriend of Original Cindy's mysteriously reappears to rekindle their relationship, Max finds her anonymity dangerously comprised by a stranger with a deadly secret.

My Thoughts:
Not a great episode.. but a decent one. Had a few good scenes... but nothing really special about it. I really didn't care for the character of Diamond at all... and I know at least for me... it is hard to get into a show when you just can't seem to care about the characters... this normally only applies to the main cast of characters.. but Diamond is such a big part of this episode it applied to her as well this time.

17. Pollo Loco
Logan is tipped off by a friend at the morgue to a murder victim with a bar code tattoo on his neck. He tells Max who then investigates. Max reads the bar code to be that of fellow X5 escapee, Ben. However, the murder victim is not Ben.

My Thoughts:
Now this... in my opinion this is an awesome episode. In this episode we meet one of Max's brothers (played by Jensen Ackles - Dean on Supernatural). And let me tell you... This episode literally had me glued to the screen during the whole episode.

18. I and I am a Camera
Investigating a string of murders of recently paroled convicts, Max and Logan meet a "Fisher King"-like super hero who at first appears harmless and slightly crazy, but ultimately has a profound effect on both their personal lives.

My Thoughts:
This is a pretty cool episode. I wouldn't say one of the best episodes.. but decent. It is one of those episodes.. that even though may not be great... it has a big impact on the show a little later down the line.
