Fright Night, a review by Dragonfire

Fright Night

I decided to watch Fright Night again recently.  I still really enjoy the movie.  It's just a fun, entertaining vampire movie.  Some things are a little corny, but it still works.  Some things are a little dated, but the movie is still worth seeing.

I've written about it here before.  I've also posted about it at Epinions.

On the eve of Christmas vacation, a college dormitory stands condemned the dark halls now vacant and unsafe. Student Joanne Murray and her close friends volunteer to help close down the building, unaware a psychopathic lunatic is hiding in the shadows. As the students disappear one by one, Joanne discovers the horrifying reality that if she is to survive, she alone will have to find a way to slay the brutal murderer.

My Thoughts:
Nice little horror movie, not something I would call original since I found who the killer was really fast (but maybe I've seen too many of those films). The cast is mostly composed of unknown, watching you often say I'm sure I've seen him/her in something else, so it won't be surprise if I write that the acting talent is really variable. Also this movie is the first one of Daphne Zuniga. The special effects done by Matthew W. Mungle (this is one of his first movie) are really good, the second murder is the most effective you really feel like it was real. But the big plus of this one is the end, best ending I've ever seen in an horror films. I'm almost sure it wasn't the original ending since the studio don't like to end a film like that. We often say that a bad end can destroy a film and the inverse is also true since it made a great film of an average one.

I think you could like this one Pete... Don't worry the dvd is also included.

Tom's TV Pilots marathon, a review by Tom

     Gokusen I (2002/Japan)
IMDb | Wikipedia

Length:660 min.
Video:Full Frame 1.33:1
Audio:Japanese: Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo
Subtitles:Chinese, English, Other

Newly graduated Kumiko Yamaguchi wants to make her mark on the Japanese educational system as a teacher. All well and good until she finds out that the school she'll be teaching at has its fair share of troublemakers and rabble-rousers. The ruffians at the school don't frighten her though for she has a secret of her own-she's a fourth generation crime syndicate member and next in line to head it up. She's gone straight and wants to be a teacher though, but she's one person in whose class you don't want to be caught fooling around!

1.01 A zealous teacher goes on a rampage!! (2002-04-17)

I like this live-action adaption even more than the anime. The actors are very well chosen and the comedy works. I always enjoy watching it (have done so multiple times now). The lead actress is the very definition of Hollywood Homely. Supposedly unattractive to the other characters, she is the hottest of them all. Of the main three female characters, I find the one, who is the supposed to be the most attractive, the least attractive of them (of course she still is beautiful).
