Trailers, Quotes and a 2002 Tape Tale

‘Insurgent’ trailer
Ruins, Tris has a bad haircut and there is obvious CGI. This looks ridiculous.

‘The Poughkeepsie Tapes’ (2007) trailer
A mockumentary about a serial killer with yelling that looks cheap.

‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ trailer
Why is Thor scruffy? Hawkeye broods and Ultron is voiced by James Spader. Thor is shirtless and why does the robot have a mouth?

On ‘Neighbours’: Rain lurks like a cult leader. Amber has a hostile response to her. Daniel has unresolved feelings for Rain and looks blankly at people. Karl continues to do raucous omni-bellows about his and Susan’s sex life. Toadie is perennially incandescent and Sonya is misused. I am uncomprehending about the point of Brennan.

Cleared out a 2002 tape. It began with the season 2 ‘Roswell’ cliff-hanger ep ‘Departure’ in which the alien teens plan to depart. Shiri Appleby, Jason Behr, Katherine Heigl, Majandra Delfino, Brendan Fehr, Colin Hanks, Nick Wechsler, Emilie De Ravin and William Sadler star. It is amazing who is still working and who isn’t. This show had nice opening credits. Maria wears her ridiculous waitress uniform. The idiot Liz/Max/Tess love triangle drags on. Liz and Max whisper at each other. There is silly CGI. Tess has no recourse but to leave after her murder of Alex (Hanks) is revealed. Cue man tears, bad acting, jeeping and yelling. This was crap.

Best Lines:
“I saved myself for you!”

“That stupid bitch!”

Then came a ‘The Pretender’ ep ‘Unsinkable’ in which Jarod broods, there is a Pope joke and Miss Parker has a boyfriend (Jason Brooks). I don’t care.

Best Line:
“A vial of mind altering crap.

Finally there was the 2000 film ‘Cherry Falls’ in which the eponymous small town sees mumbling teenage virgins hacked up by a serial killer in this horribly recut and badly edited movie. The characters are awful people and the killer is so obviously that guy from the short-lived show ‘Action’. This movie has a creepy sexual vibe to it. There are faxes, fights, a sex party and sinister skulking by the scraggly killer. This is not gritty unhinged recrimination and revenge but maybe that is because the film is so badly cut. It is averred that old sins cast long shadows and so internalised rage erupts. The ubiquitous killer-comes-back-to-life-for-one-last-scare scene is hilarious. As is the cross dressing lipstick wearing serial killer screaming, waving an axe and crashing a sex party while never once displacing the polyester wig that is said killer’s paper thin ‘disguise’. The killer is full of derision, calumny and hatred for the moral degenerates pretending to be good. The climax of the gravid, crazy loon interrupting the orgy should have been better. This was truly inept and ridiculous and has no motif or subtext. Brittany Murphy (final girl), Michael Biehn (bad dad), Jay Mohr (killer), DJ Qualls and Gabriel Mann (boyfriend) star.

Best Lines:
“How can you be so critically uninformed?”

“What is wrong with you people?”

“Singularly constructive.”

“It’s better than a pile of dead teenagers.”


“I can’t lock my daughter up in a basement.”

“We’re talking hymen holocaust here.”

“All we need is floor space.”
“Didn’t you want your first time to be something beautiful, something romantic?”

“You can not leave saving his life up to that slut Sharon!”

“Why are you wearing lipstick?”
“Cos it makes me pretty.”
