Young Frankenstein, a review by Dragonfire

Young Frankenstein

Mel Brooks' monstrously crazy tribute to Mary Shelley's classic pokes hilarious fun at just about every Frankenstein movie ever made. Summoned by a will to his late grandfather's castle in Transylvania, young Dr. Frankenstein (GENE WILDER) soon discovers the scientist's step-by-step manual explaining how to bring a corpse to life. Assisted by the hunchbacked Igor (MARTY FELDMAN) and the curvaceous Inga (TERI GARR), he creates a monster (PETER BOYLE) who only wants to be loved.  CLORIS LEACHMAN, MADELINE KAHN, KENNETH MARS and GENE HACKMAN co-star in this inspired vision of lunacy.

My Thoughts

I did get a review posted on Epinions a few years ago.

Welcome to the Death Race, where hardened convicts and smoking-hot navigators race tricked-out cars in the most twisted spectator sport on Earth! Sentenced to the world's most dangerous prison for a murder he did not commit, Jensen Ames (Jason Statham) has only one chance to get out alive - win the ultimate race to the death. Also starring Tyrese Gibson, Death Race, is a "supercharged, sick and satisfying" (Nathan Lee, The New York Times) ride that will keep you pinned to your seat all the way to its insane, metal-crushing end!

My Thoughts:

No random pick tonight. I was in the mood for some mindless action so I went for Death Race.

I realized my folly about 10 minutes into the movie... I own the original Death Race 2000 and have never watched it... and really should have before watching the remake. Oh well...  :-[

I'm not going to try and make this movie out to be anything more than it really is... an action packed display of violence and gore. It requires no thought... just sit back and dodge the shrapnel!  :tomato: Loved it!

I thought Joan Allen was perfectly cast as the warden/extreme sport promoter because just about every movie I have watched her in she has played a cross, miserable woman about a friendly as pit viper. She was rather convincing as the warden of Terminal Island, demanding respect and instilling fear.

Jason Statham was predictable but so far I have not tired of his mostly one dimensional roles. You know what to expect from one of his movies and most times when I pop one in that's exactly what I'm looking for.

What I find interesting is that with the direction that real life reality TV is currently heading in, and this might sound a bit ludicrous, but I could see this type of tv in the future. Reality shows are already pushing the envelope in terms of shock factor, tastefulness and viewer curiosity. What's left to reel the viewers in other than death on TV? It may be years away yet, but guaranteed someone, somewhere will do it.

Would you watch?  :tv:

Not a bad episode. But not great either. While the storyline was entertaining to a point... I found I really didn't care for the Bethany character enough to really get into it.
