Dark Shadows (2012)
Definitely not as bad as people are making out to be
I honestly don't understand why people are so upset at this movie. It's a parody, and you can tell that from the trailer. Does it have its flaws? Yes, but it's still a fun film. I just saw this movie and trust me, there was a lot of laughter from the audience throughout the film. It seems to me, that the people angry don't understand the joke behind this film. Tim Burton and Johnny Depp wanted to recreate in this film the sensation of watching Dark Shadows, a soap opera that's known for its cheesiness and low budget. The film is supposed to be goofy and over the top; it's supposed to be dramatic in some places; it's supposed to be all over the place; it's supposed to have random, shocking moments, because that's what soap operas are like. I'll admit, I haven't seen the original Dark Shadows, but I plan to. I have also done research and saw some clips. Also, I've watched TeleNovelas, since I was a kid, so I have an idea what soap operas are like. Personally, I and everyone else in the theater truly enjoyed this film. It's supposed to be fun, so lighted up people. ;)
Sabrina, the Animated Series (1999)
It's not that bad.
I actually watched this show when I was little and really enjoyed it. It was one of my favorite shows. Everyone who hates it, hates it just because it isn't the same as the sitcom. Well, it isn't based on the sitcom; it's based on the comic. Plus, what point was there of having exactly the same show, only animated? Of course it had to be different. Also, it was meant for a younger demographic, so of course it was going to be sugar coated and the characters were going to be younger. I feel that instead of comparing the two, just focus on the actual show you are reviewing. I know the show isn't perfect. I know that the storyline was repeated, but most cartoons(even classics like Scooby Doo) did the same thing. I know the animation isn't top notch, but not many animated TV shows at the time were. I personally was never bothered by the animation. Trust me, there are worse examples of animation. I would judge the animation in this show to be about average. I know it was educational, but I don't see the harm in that. What's so bad about educational shows? If a kid could be entertained and educated, I don't see what's wrong with that. I know the characters are bland and stereotypical. But in the end, it is a fun show to watch for kids. I loved this show as a kid. I watched it every Saturday morning. I even watch it every now and then for nostalgia reasons. While I can see why people can dislike this show, I don't see any reason to HATE it. It's an okay show that I personally enjoyed and still enjoy watching.
