My Thoughts:
This is the first time I ever seen this film. And I must say... I enjoyed it a lot! I really liked Supergirl in this one. Her being a teen that is having a bit of trouble dealing with her life. It has a very good storyline. Though there is a couple things I didn't care for here. First off I noticed right away... I didn't care for the way they drew Superman. It is more noticeable in some scene then others... but they made his chin too long. Another thing I didn't care too much for is how they re-wrote the origin of Brainiac. But they made the story so good that all is forgiven. I especially liked how the film ended. It even shows that there is a good chance of continuing the storyline. Over-all this is one I highly recommend!

My Rating:

I am Legend, a review by Rich


I am Legend



Richard Matheson's classic chiller gets its third adaptation (after THE OMEGA MAN and THE LAST MAN ON EARTH) with this film from director Francis Lawrence (CONSTANTINE). Will Smith plays Robert Neville, the last survivor in a post-apocalyptic New York, but there's still danger left on the city streets.

2nd viewing of this dvd, and my opinion has not changed greatly. After reading the excellent Matheson book which has inspired so many films, I would always feel slightly disappointed by and translated film. However it is an interesting adaptaion, and as a stand-alone film is quite good.
I thought Will Smith played the lead as the last human survivor well, capturing the slow madness of a man chatting to shop dummies and his relationship with Sam the dog. The backdrop of a ravaged New York is excellent, really creepy, with the wild animals roaming free. The lack of other characters does make the film a little bland, and I would have liked the 'other' humans brought into the story earlier.
But as Jon has previously said in his review, the mutants are a major let-down and the director appears to have gone crazy with his CGI effects to a point where at times they were like cartoons, totally unconvincing, and not scary in any way (although the initial 'hive' shot was suspenseful). The ending as well was not translated from the book, and too Hollywood nicey nicey for my taste.
Great effects though, and at times a full-on action piece that makes it a must-see for me.
 :D

Birthday Marathon, a review by addicted2dvd



Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season 6
Older and Far Away
When Dawn feels that nobody wants to spend time with her, she makes a wish in front of a Vengeance demon (posing as school counselor) that everyone would stay with her. During Buffy's birthday party, Dawn's penchant for shoplifting is discovered while the gang tries to figure out why nobody is able to leave the house.

My Thoughts:
This is the last "Buffy's Birthday" episode of the series. And a very good one at that. I always enjoyed every minute of this episode the several times I have watched it. There is something that seems familiar about the woman that plays the Vengeance Demon... other then here on Buffy. I do know she was on Buffy several times.

My Rating:
Out of a Possible 5
