Movie Review: The Mist

The Mist (2007)

Based on the glorious Stephen King novella, this was a worthy adaptation. Thomas Jane emoted like Pacino on crack, there was a 'Dark Tower' homage, the creatures were good and, oh, the ending was good.

There were negatives: spelling out exactly what The Arrowhead Project was and the hero's disposable wife.

Still I enjoyed it.

Doctor Who Review: Journey's End

Journey's End

What a cop-out.

Sure it had contunity and explosions and German speaking Daleks, but it also had a horrible ending, cop-outs galore and character pandering.

What a let down.

Angel #10 + BTVS #16 + Star Trek #1 Reviewed

Angel #10
Ugly art. Angel's secret is out, kind of. Gunn killed a slayer. What is his plan? What is the deal with the magical fish? The outside world thinks LA is ok, mmmmmmm. An okay issue, took the story arc a while to get going though.

Buffy The Vampire Slayer #16
Ugly art. All Buffy's whining about being the slayer and she has no problem making girls into slayers and them dying for her. Enough with Willow flying. What is the point of Dawn? Why isn't Buffy doing anything about Twilight? Seeing as he dropped a steeple on her and has now blown up her castle. That mystical missile looks fierce. What'll the losses be at the castle? Are we not supposed to care that Buffy is a thief now? This is good issue but things need to be adressed.

Star Trek: Mirror Images #1
That's supposed to be Pike?!? Creepy evil Kirk. Is that Rand? This was good. I love the Trek Mirror Universe.

Right this second (sorta)

 Reading: The Serpent Bride (took a while to get into it)

Watching: The Musketeer (2001) (Stephen Rea is dreadful in this)

Waiting on: Jericho season 2 and Witchblade complete dvd boxsets.

Wondering: Why Chuck was yanked off tv after only 2 eps where I live.

Wishing For: a Highlander: The Raven comic series that would undo the damage of the series finale.

Expecting: Houseguests. I loathe houseguests.
