Knight Rider: Knight Rider (2008)
Overall not a bad ride
I caught the movie on NBC last night and decided to give it a shot. Not having high hopes for the film I was slightly surprised that it wasn't quite as campy as the original. And no offense to the Trans Am, but the new Cobra 500 Mustang was awesome. Val Kilmer did a decent job as the new KITT (Knight Industries Three Thousand). And the kid they got for the lead was decent if a little cardboard boring at times. One thing I will give the show, it had the FEEL of the original, even though Hasselhoff wasn't in the movie for maybe five minutes. If you sit to watch it just for a decent movie to kill time then you won't be disappointed. Overall a 6 out of ten. later
Fever Lake (1996)
C-movie writing with B-movie or above acting
The writing and directing of this film stunk. That's the nicest way I can put it. But the acting made up for it. Bo Hopkins as the not so thick-skulled sheriff was marvelous. Okay now for my confession. I watched this movie because it had Corey Haim in it. (I know I know It's like watching charles in charge because it had Scott Baio) Anyway it was a decent movie. If they would have had a better budget and better director they could have made this a teen sequel to The Shining. Heres!! Alfie!
The Backlot Murders (2002)
not even B-movie horror
I love horror movies. View some of my comments and you'll see that. HOWEVER, this movie stunk. A constantly revamp of an old plot line that doesn't work any longer. You think writers would learn huh? The movie's "Actors" and "Actresses" seem more like people out a porno movie. As a matter of fact one of the tells them that on screen Really retarded. There's a guy who is gay but also seems to be very attatched to his dog (that was the only scary thing about this movie) A psycho killer who is... well psycho and stupid because he's being manipulated by a cold and very poorly acted older woman. (and the actress was in a few movies I like. Tremors 2 for one) Corey Haim who was once the pinnacle of teenage actors everywhere has a minor part as a band member who can't play guitar. that's about it. Ladies and Gentlemen this movie makes 80's slasher movies like Slumber Party Massacre and Sleep Away camp three into the A list of horror films.
The movie doesn't compare
I rented this movie because I thought (and still think) that the book was a masterpiece. The book is still on my top five novels ever list. So when I rented the film I expected it to fail in comparision. But not on this level. Travis is a Kid? I mean come ON. In the book the guy was ex-delta with plenty of tricks up his sleeve. In the movie he's a sixteen or so year old kid who seemed to be taught everything about traps and guns by the age of 10 when his dad died. I'm from the south and I don't know half the crap the kid was taught. Hell i was shooting guns at seven sure. 22s. BB guns. Not even a very entertaining movie. If you want to see a Dean Koontz book that made a good movie watch Phantoms.
War of the Worlds (1988)
I was young when i first saw this series. So young that I only remember bits and pieces. I was five or six when they killed off my fav character. Must say it was heroic though. I remember bits and pieces of season two. (weren't they based underground then?) Anyway it was a great series and i really hope a DVD does come out. It's worth watching if you can catch reruns. Later
I liked the movies. okay I loved the first movie and hated the second then kinda liked the third and I liked endgame. Two outta four ain't that bad. Anyway. I liked the movies BUT in the fighting choreography Christopher Lambert cannot match Adrian Paul. The sword fights in the series got better throug the season's. If your into martial arts (perferably with a sword kata's) like me you'll know what i'm talking about. It seems like Adrian KNEW at least a little something about sword fighting. Maybe i'm looking too deep anyway i give it a 9/10. And i want the DVD set
Dead Men Can't Dance (1997)
This movie was bad. And i usually like the low budget military movies. The only thing that i even half liked about the movie was the knife fight between Michael Bien and Adrian Paul. And it was kinda crappy. You would think with two action movie and tv show veterans like them at least the fight scenes would be better than they were. Ah hell. I could barely sat through the movie once. NEVER AGAIN
Black Sash (2003)
Great show Good cast.
The martial arts in the show is Ba Gua Zhang (Eight Trigram Palms) and it is not shown correctly on the show. At least not in the fight scenes. But I do like how they don't use wires and do impossible flips and moves. It IS a realistic view of martial arts even thought Camera Tricks are used. The moves on the show can actually be done in the real world. Russell Wong (vanishing son series) though is not a "master" of any form of martial arts has done enough fighting stuntwork and choreography to pull off being the teacher and overseer of the school. The kids are faced with real life problems such as Child abuse, obsession, crime, etc... I have heard that the WB has cancelled the show only four eps into the six that were first ordered. I think it's a huge mistake on there part. THe show has the potential to be the WB's next Dawsons Creek if they developed the characters right. Overall I give the series a 9/10. I'd recommend it to anyone.
Howell's best movie!!
Okay. I'm a C. Thomas Howell fan. Always have been. From his newer B movies (red team, Avalanche) to his old movies. (The Outsiders, Side Out) And this movie is by far the best of the bunch. It starts out with an eeriy feel to it as The Kid steps off the bus in the center of the desert like town. Its a great movie though some of the acting is bad (the brothers) its a movie that will always be on my shelf and will be in my vcr alot as well. 7/10
Evil Dead II (1987)
Not a true sequel
Evil dead II (dead by dawn) is not a true sequel. It has nothing to do with the original film. According to this movie the original never happened. I like the film and it is the beginning of the transition from Horror (Evil Dead) to Comedy (Army of Darkness) i like film and the few well done one-liners spit out by Ash (our one handed hero) The movie is a must see for ANY horror movie fan. 8/10
