The Haunted Mansion (2003)
could have been better!
this could have been a much better movie if the producers had not tried to make a family friendly horror-comedy. a film like this works better if you try to scare your audience.the inclusion of kids in this flick already told me that nothing serious was going to happen to anybody. the two kid actors in this flick were not really needed,and as far as i could tell did not help the story.they could have been given more to do. a fair amount of mild scares,some good production design,and good special effects kept it from becoming a total snorefest.eddie needs funnier material and needs to get away from "family" films a little more. do more mature stuff or at least pick better scripts . enjoy the disney ride, forget this movie.
The Hostage Tower (1980)
entertaining crime caper film!!
i came across a copy of this film at a used video store in philadelphia.several things make this movie a rather enjoyable crime caper.the french location shots,the overall acting and the basic plot.the plot involves a plan by a master criminal to hold hostage the eiffel tower! the overall look of the film is good,the producers chose wisely in having a decent budget,and it shows all the way through.too many films like this always have budgets that are too small.anyway, the terrorist employ a bevy of high tech gadgets to keep the authorities at bay during the siege. one of these are laser beams.this gives parts of the movie a little bit of a science fiction flavor .the film is also enjoyable because it bothers to show the large amount of prep work our villains have to go through to gain their objective. in a worse film ,the bad guys just show up with their hardware ,and the audience is just to accept that these guys have this stuff just lying around. although the premise of the movie is a little over the top ,the film does not employ a great deal of sex ,blood ,or violence.film stars big name actors and you can't go wrong with a big name or two.overall this film is a good time filler.i have never seen this on television ,but at one time it was available on video in the 80's. it's currently out of print find a used copy and enjoy.
La diosa salvaje (1975)
wonderful movie for guys!!
an adventure film to be sure! but what an adventure! ship wrecked sob gets himself stranded on an island full of beautiful women! however these beautiful babes can also skin you alive! movie has some decent production values ,good photography, some good action scenes ,and a decent script.this film is also loaded with a fair amount of cheesy elements. if you like looking at loads of girls in animal skins,then this is the film to watch.this movie is in both spanish and english language.i have both versions and the spanish language one is still easy to follow storywise.overall an entertaining time filler.
i found this film enjoyable,and action packed.
this is one of my favorite movies! i'm a big fan of sci-fi films in particular .this movie has everything one could want in a movie of this type.action,adventure,a good amount of character development ,and characters you really want to root for.aliens really raised the bar in some ways for bugged eyed monster films.no more would audiences accept shoddy special effects or phony looking creature effects. this really cool movie is also responsible for the popular catchphrase "GAME OVER MAN,GAME OVER".which i've never heard until after ALIENS came out. ONE OF MY FAVORITE MOVIES!!
