The Corpse Bride, a review by addicted2comics



The Corpse Bride

The Plot: As Victor rehearses his wedding vows, being in the woods trying to escape the harsh family, accidently proposes to a corpse, who vowed to get married when she was mudere the night she was set to elope.

My Thoughts: It is anawesome movie, and the songs are really catchy too. I still can't get the song out of my head that explains the origin of the Corpse Bride!!! Die, die, we all pass away. Don't you frown, cuz it's really ok. The animation can get on yours nerves, but that's typical for a Tim Burton film, so I'm willing to look past it. I give this a 4 out of 5.

Frustrated, Alex casts a spell to banish her selfish impulses and accidentally creates an evil doppelganger!. Now the fate of the world hangs in the balance - atop the Leaning Tower of Pisa - as "Good Alex" and "Bad Alex" fce off in the ultiamte wizard showdown. Packed with humor, suspense, and amazing special effects, this must-own event is fun for everyone!

Extras:
  • Scene Access
  • Bonus Trailers
  • Bonus Episode: Who Will Be the Family Wizard?


My Thoughts:

I like the way they did this DVD... because not only is the reunion film on this disc, but also the 2 part series finale to remind us what happened at the end of the series.

 As for the film itself, once again we enjoyed every minute of it. The entire Russo family returns except for one. That being older brother Justin. Once again this is a fun story for the entire family. But I recommend watching the series before watching the films.

Smallville Marathon #2, a review by DJ Doena


Disc 4

Vengeance
Synopsis: Martha is bringing Jonathan's clothes to a shelter but then she's robbed and hurt. A female vigilante is saving her but the robbers can escape. Clark wants to go after them but for this he has to find that woman. He hopes that she can identify them.

My Opinion: A very good episode to show Clark what could become of him if he would "go to the dark side of the force". I liked it how they've used Superman references but didn't simply copy them, e.g. when her glasses aren't just disguise but without them she actually can't see much.

Tomb
Synopsis: After lightning has hit the "Talon" Chloe is possessed by a ghost that has her wrists cut open. She is brought to the hospital because everyone thinks it was a suicide attempt. Lana and Clark try to help her in different ways.

My Opinion: I am really glad that Clark kept his mouth shut. I would have hated to see an episode where he would have told someone about Chloe's mother in an attempt to help her and then see her accusing him because she kept his secret. Writers seem to love such dramas. But we have too much of them in Smallville already. Thus I am glad it turned out the way it did.

Cyborg
Synopsis: A man escapes from a lab and runs straight into Lana's car. The car is a wreck, Lana's is injured and the man has no scratch. He's a cyborg, "made" by LuthorCorp and he should have died in a car crash several months ago. Now he tries to find his girlfriend and to prevent from ever having to go back to that lab. Of course Clark is a big help in achieving those goals.

My Opinion: Interestingly this episode combines the previous episodes into one story. Victor (the cyborg) is of course another reflection of Clark's. And once again I am glad. It would have been easy for the writers to let Victor's girlfriend be scared to death about what has become of her boyfriend and thus confirming Clark's worst fears. But they didn't do that. It also wouldn't be plausible anymore. In a straight timeline it never happened but Clark knows now how Lana would react if she'd ever find out, they can't use that anymore as a reason for not telling her.
