Doctor Who: World's End (1964)
"The Dalek Invasion of Earth"
Radiation nil, oxygen normal, pressure normal...an earth reading! The Tardis has landed in London. A menacing deserted London, with no sign of life and no sense of normality, but the decaying city is not as empty as it seems. The year is 2164 and the travelers soon find themselves facing antagonists whom they thought they had destroyed...the Daleks. They have conquered the Earth.
Ten Years after a cosmic storm, continents of people were wiped out by a plague. Then the Daleks came in saucers, shipping humans to vast mining areas, turning them into robomen and against their fellow humans. Earth contains something no other planet contains - a magnetic core - but why are the Daleks digging for it and how can the Doctor prevent them from tampering with the force of creation?
Classic 6 part series with the Doctor, Susan, Ian, and Barbara and their second clash with the Daleks.
not terrible per se, but knowing from the outset that it's a pilot for a short lived NINJA series that co-starred LEE MAJORS and that i'll probably never see a single regular episode was an immediate downer.
still, it is somewhat enjoyable with a few nice action sequences mixed with the requisite witty repartee.
one can also take refuge in the fact that there is a plethora of better martial arts films available to see, and several more yet to be made. and eventually "the six million dollar man" and "the fall guy" will be released on DVD here in the states.
Out of Time (1988)
not ready for prime time
the way the credits were presented and the fact that it very basic incidental and theme music leads me to believe that this was a pilot movie for a t.v. series for NBC that was not picked up.
i doubt that it ever aired when it was first made, and it was probably only eventually aired because of the success of bill maher.
i like the concept of a cop from the future teaming up with his great-grandfather to solve crimes on the mean streets of l.a., and maher was funny as the goofy techno-geek cop from the present, but if this had been picked up as a series, then i imagine that this teleplay would have been re-shot since most of it is as dull as an unsharpened pencil.
watchable but poorly written.
the movie is watchable but poorly written.
it seemed like they just stuck to a basic outline when making this telefilm as the story is missing several key elements of a crime of this sort.
for example, foul play is suspected in the death of a multi-millionaire and there is no press interest?
it also lacks a substantial police investigation.
i could go on, but there's really no point.
if your desperate for some Hart to Hart action, then i would suggest you seek out episodes of the TV series.
if this is the only thing on t.v., then i would suggest you read a book or do something creative(like going on the internet and writing a sub-par review of a blase film - hahahaha)
The Country Bears (2002)
i'm amazed there are people that actually like this tripe.
i'm even more amazed that i made through the whole thing without falling asleep. (for you see i had been up all night.)
i didn't expect it be very good, but i was genuinely surprised about how bad it was. it was like watching a never ending train wreck.
80% of the movie is mostly a boring music video.
the rest filled with random cameos, lame dialogue, spots of slapstick, and a semblance of a plot.
a must see for those who enjoy viewing the occasional pile of dung. it will certainly give you more appreciation for the 1000's of great films that are available for your viewing pleasure.
Grand Prix (1966)
excellent film work/editing
the movie has some hokie plot lines and some fairly bland acting, but it's well worth seeing for it's stellar race sequences, especially if your a fan of auto racing.
it almost works as a documentary for the now classic cars used in the picture, all it needs is the requisite voice over and background info
10/10 (for the editing and film work) 5/10 (for the rest)
bad acting, good music, so-so script
It seemed to have pretty low production values for a Hammer film.
The music was pretty good, but I imagine it's not original to film.
There were a few nice kung-fu fights, but nothing you couldn't find elsewhere.
Stuart's character seems to be somewhat clever at times and extremely dim at others.
Some of the locations were neat, but only in a documentary way (a look into 70's Hong Kong)
You probably won't hate it if you see it, but it's basically a low budget action film with not much to offer.
Hail Caesar (1994)
this movie was just awful
i don't remember anything about this movie other than it being completely terrible. it should be in the bottom 100, and it will someday as soon as it has enough votes.
The Master of Disguise (2002)
does not deserve to be in the bottom 100
i'm in my early 30s and i thought it was funny. it's certainly not on par with the brilliant comedies made by monty python, but it's much better than 95% of the PG-13 garbage that continues to be released.
it was refreshing to see a PG comedy that wasn't centered around children. i really liked the gammy num nums disguise, and i wish they had been able to work the Mayor Maynot disguise in the movie along with the painting guy. thankfully they were both on the DVD.
i've watched it twice now, and will watch it again. dana talked (on a DVD featurette) about how he originally wanted to make a mission impossible type comedy with the master of disguise being part of the team, so maybe he'll go to back to that for a sequel; although, it seems unlikely since the first seems to be rather unpopular.
Rat Race (2001)
People liked this?
This is just a poor clone of It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World.
It had a good enough cast and a decent premise, but most of the jokes just weren't funny.
I'm still surprised at the rating for this. My guess is that the folks that thought this was funny are ignorant of the classics.
