Trailers, Quotes and a 2003 Tape Tale

Star Crossed’ trailer
In the near future aliens attack or something and “life as we knew it changed forever”. These aliens look human and some of them attend a high school to co-exist. Obnoxious alien teenagers who look 39 hang out, a human girl finds love with an alien boy (it’s Liam from ‘90210’) and there is pop music and whining about intolerance. This looks cheesy.

Best Lines:
“You were kind.”

“You can’t be bothered to pledge our flag?”

“We’re from a far more superior planet.”

‘Klondike’ promo
Trying too hard.

‘XIII’ promo
No!

Reviews of ‘Star Crossed’, ‘In The After’, ‘The Screaming Book Of Horror’, ‘Half Bad’, ‘The Circle’, ‘House of Bathory’, ‘Acolytes of Cthulhu’ and ‘Elfie Hopkins’ forthcoming.

Timothy Dalton is 70?!?

Banquet For The Damned’ Quote:
“It’s not the kind of thing you would want to look at sober.”

I am reading ‘Banquet For The Damned’.

I won’t be reviewing ‘Supernatural’ anymore, I’m done.

On ‘Hollyoaks’: things get worse for John-Paul as Finn gets him sent to jail for six months. Sandy, Finn, Tom and Peri are all awful. Peri falls down some stairs. I am not caring.

Cleared out a 2003 tape. It opened with a season 1 ‘Xena Warrior Princess’ ep clip show ‘Athens City Academy Of The Performing Bards’ in which Gabrielle hangs out with Euripides and Homer (the untalented Dean O’Gorman). This was dire and as dated as Moro bars. Then came a ‘The Burning Zone’ episode ‘St Michael’s Nightmare’ about an evil travelling salesman. Denim and plaid are worn by everyone. The evil carnie makes a small town turn cold, dark and confused with a plant that could be from the Garden of Eden. This was ludicrous and the imperilling plant life was silly.

Then came a season 7 ‘Buffy The Vampire Slayer’ ep ‘Get It Done’ in which everyone lives in Buffy’s house. This was a season of relentless negativity. Everyone is shiny, Kennedy acts like she is the boss and a slayer-in-waiting kills herself. Buffy buries the suicide in her garden and goes on a disconcertingly defeatist rant about how the dead girl was an idiot and how Buffy carries them all. Robin Wood has a bag of his ma’s slayer stuff. Cue bad SFX, magical artefacts just fall out of the sky in season 7 and it turns out magic men made slayers by taking a girl and filling her with demon smoke. Spike gets way too much screen time. This was unsavvy, stupid and boring.

Best Line:
“What is it that you do?”

Finally there was an ‘Angel’ season 4 ep ‘Release’ in which Wesley tried to be mean and moody. Faith gets beat up. Cordy is evil. Angelus runs around and there is a cliffhanger. This was sub-euphoric.
