‘Forgetting Sarah Marshall’ Quotes:
“You look like one of those guys suspected of killing JFK.”
“Ridiculous premise: what would happen if your mobile phone killed you? Why would a mobile phone kill anyone? It doesn’t make sense. How can a mobile phone have an agenda and kill people?”
“Let me tell you something about these tattoos, okay. That is Buddhist, that is Nordic, that is Hindu, that’s just gibberish. They are completely conflicting ideologies and that does not make you a citizen of the world.”
‘Storm Rising’ Quotes:
“She could be mad, too; that was hardly a novelty among royalty.”
“I’m surprised his own god hasn’t struck him down before this.”
"Give me some chocolate or I'll cut you."
Hammer does Sherlock Holmes. Holmes (Peter Cushing) and Watson head off to Dartmoor to protect Sir Henry Baskerville (Christopher Lee) from the family curse. They encounter the jerk Dr Mortimer and the instantly villainous Stapleton and his annoying daughter. There is a dreadful soundtrack and much divergence from the book.
There is no “footprints of a gigantic hound” line, instead we get a tarantula attack, the wrong person ends up in Grimpen mire and the hound is unscary and doesn’t glow. It’s mediocre but still better than the dreadful BBC version starring Richard E Grant from a few years back.
“The powers of evil can take many forms.”
“You scum ruled the moor.”
Cleared out two more tapes. The tape from 2002 began with an ‘Odyssey 5’ ep entitled ‘Vanishing Point’ in which the old isolate someone and convince them reality isn’t real trope is played out. Chuck rants and verbally abuses his son Neill in between brainwashings. Dull, the show’s themes of time travel/Transhumanism/Earth being blown up/aliens plot arc did intrigue but was overshadowed by Chuck’s terrible terrible acting.
Next ep up was a dull ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer’ season 7 ep entitled ‘Beneath You’ in which Spike does a large ham mad act, Buffy works as a guidance counsellor, Willow wallows in self pity and Xander expresses no remorse for his horrible treatment of Anya. Then came the boring ‘Angel’ season 4 ‘Deep Down’ in which Wesley’s amoral tough act was ridiculous. Lilah, Gunn and Fred all were boring and Connor got slapped around.
Finally was a season 2 ‘Smallville’ ep entitled ‘Heat’ which Clark got his heat vision, Lex married a mind controlling meteor freak and everyone looks like they’re coated in bacon grease. This was okay and it was nice to be see people being nice to Lex.
The 2003 tape had the season 7 ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer’ ep ’Empty Places’ in which Buffy is so rude and horrible that people turn against her. Buffy stamps her foot, screams, punches people and wails about Spike. Andrew is unfunny. Caleb has a chance to kill Buffy and doesn’t. This was awful. Then came the ’Angel’ season 4 ep ’Shiny Happy People’ in which Angel and co and Jasmine talk, talk, talk and talk some more. This was boring. Finally there was a ’Cleopatra 2525’ ep entitled ’No Thanks for the Memories’ in which Sarge is accused of murder, yawn.
