Shadow Puppets, a review by addicted2dvd



Title: Shadow Puppets
Movie Count: 76
TV Ep Count: 38
Other  Count: 2
Time Started: 3:30pm
Plot:
Jolene Blalock ('STAR TREK: ENTERPRISE') James Marsters ('BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER, ANGEL') and Tony Todd (CANDYMAN) star in this creepy chiller about a group of strangers who awaken in a locked asylum ward with no idea of who they are or how they got there. They are half-naked, cold and frightened. And they are not alone. Who has erased their memories? Why have they been imprisoned? And what is the supernatural force that is slaughtering them one by one? The answers wait deep in the darkness where a beast hungers to feed, escape is virtually impossible, and the shadows of sanity may hide the most shocking revelations of all.

My Thoughts:
I admit that going into this movie my expectations was a bit on the high side... what with having 3 of my favorites as stars of the movie... and with a storyline that sounded like a lot of fun to me. I was actually afraid my expectations was a bit too high. But as it ends up I was not disappointed in the least. I actually enjoyed every minute of this movie! This movie reminds me of all the horror/survival video games I used to love to play. Jolene Blalock played a very strong character in this movie... and there is nothing I enjoy more in a horror movie then a strong female character. I have always hated the women in horror movies that does nothing but scream and running scared... without even thinking of what they are doing or where they are going. Along with Jolene Blalock.... James Marsters and Tony Todd played their roles perfectly. I am not sure if this movie is a direct to video release or what it is... but it is definitely not one for any horror fan to miss. I have to recommend checking this movie out!

My Thoughts:
Yes, yes we just watched The Avengers again! This is like my 6th time watching this film since it came out. Once at the theater... twice on DVD... and now 3 times on Blu-ray. But what can I say... I love this movie! Even after all these multiple viewings I still enjoyed every second of it! This movie is almost two and a half hours long... but it sure didn't feel like it while watching it! Everything moved quickly... it is quite action packed... and it has a plenty of laughs as well. Sure there was maybe a few jokes that fell flat for me... but for the most part I think  Joss Whedon did an excellent job. As did the entire cast. I was a little concerned about Mark Ruffalo taking over the part of Bruce Banner... but I liked him in the role too. The Hulk is probably my favorite character in the film. He really stole the show. I couldn't recommend this one any higher.

Angel Marathon, a review by addicted2dvd


Angel: Season 4

8. Habeas Corpses
Original Air Date: 1/15/2003
When Angel realizes that there may be some connection between Connor and the Beast, he learns that Connor is trapped within Wolfram & Hart where the building is under lock-down and the Beast is on a brutal killing spree. Angel, Wesley, Gunn and Fred break into the building, only to be encountered by zombies of dead lawyers.

Guest Stars:
Stephanie Romanov
Daniel Dae Kim
Vladimir Kulich

My Thoughts:
This one I liked a whole lot! And I must say I got a good laugh out of Connor comparing angel to the Zombies... A slow, dimwitted undead thing that craves human flesh!  :laugh: That just could have been the best laugh I had so far in this series. Obviously Angel is not very happy with Cordelia right now for sleeping with Connor. But that is ok... Pretty soon we will have "Shiny Happy People"
