Tremors 3: Back To Perfection
Those morphing, man-eating monsters are shaking things up again in the dusty little town of Perfection, Nevada - and durvivalist Burt Gummer (Michael Gross) is the only soution to the latest evolution! Aided by a couple of young entrepreneurs (Shawn Christian and Susan Chang), Burt pits his impressive knowledge of weaponry against the newest and dealiest generation of Graboids. If Burt and his new partners can't find a way to stop them, then the creatures that put Perfection on the map will wipe it right off the face of the earth. 'Tremors 3' promises earth-shaking, explosive, edge-of-your-seat entertainment!
This second sequel to Tremors is more silly than the second movie, but I still find it entertaining. Burt gets to the be main character this time since Earl is also gone. I did like seeing the town of Perfection again and how the people living there managed to find a way to live with the graboids and even make money off them. The effects are cheesy, even more so than the previous movies, but it still manages to work. I really hate the music that is used throughout the movie. The violence is more tame in this one since it was made for television. It launched a television show that didn’t last that long. I do remember watching the show and it was cheesy as well, but still entertaining. The movie is similar to the first movies, though something new is added in that helps to keep things from being completely predictable. Some new cast members turn up as well as a few people from the first movie returning. The movie is silly, but it is entertaining.
I did get a review posted on Epinions last summer.

Decoys, a review by addicted2dvd
Stefanie von Pfetten
Some students aren't exactly what they seem to be in DECOYS, a sci-fi/horror adventure starring Kim Poirier (Dawn of the Dead), Richard Burgi (Starship Troopers 2), Corey Sevier (TV's "North Shore") and Nicole Eggert (TV's "Baywatch").
If college coeds Lily and Constance look like two out-of-this-world blonde beauties, that's because they're actually intergalactic space invaders with a mission: to breed with humans before taking over the Earth. And even though the girls' mating skills have proven fatal to their victims, they keep on trying. So when Luke, a hard-partying freshman, accidentally witnesses the shapely shape-shifters in their full-bodied alien state, he knows it's up to him to save the planet before he truly gets wasted.
I went into this one not expecting too much.... and it is a good thing I didn't. While not a terribly bad movie... it was no more then an average low-budget fair. It seemed like I seen it all before. It was like they took the idea of 2 or 3 different movies... slapped it together.... and then put it into a cold setting. It even had the all too expected "surprise" ending that I saw coming a mile away. I would say the only thing this one really had going for it is pretty girls in skimpy clothes. Well the did make the aliens in their natural form look pretty cool... but even that reminded me of aliens from another movie.

Angel Marathon, a review by DJ Doena
Life of the PartySynopsis: Usually the Halloween party at Wolfram & Hart's is a big event. A lot of demon are coming, there's a ritual sacrifice and other enjoyable things. But this year no one is willing to come because they fear to walk into a trap of Angel's. Lorne restlessly tries to make this party happen.
My Opinion: I often thought if it were cool to not having to sleep anymore. The day would be 7 to 8 hours longer. Average episode.
The Cautionary Tale of Numero CincoSynopsis: Angel has to fight an Aztec demon who collects the hearts of heroes and who is looking for an amulet. In this fight he has the help of a mexican wrestler who has lost his four brothers in the fight against the demon.
My Opinion: A good episode to restore Angel's faith in heroes with the help of a guest character.
LineageSynopsis: Wesley's father is visiting him at Wolfram & Hart's. He tries to convince hime to join the newly refounded Watcher's Council. But then W&H is attacked by cyborg ninjas.
My Opinion: Now we know why Wesley has been so clumsy in the beginning. But we also see at the end how far he has come and that he is willing to make the hardest decisions. But I would like to know what memories the spell has erased/modified. If they have no recollection about Angel's son, what do they remember about the last two years?
DestinySynopsis: Spike has become corporeal but the universe doesn't take that lightly. Now there are two champions, two vampires with a soul, two persons that could be the one from the Shanshu prophecy. But there is a way to find out which one is the chosen one.
My Opinion: We are so lucky that the universe didn't collapse when Trelawney's prophecy could have meant Neville Longbottom and Harry Potter. I liked the episode very much and the return of Lindsay came unexpected. Now the story becomes full circle with the first season.
