Last Thursday night, I went with my daughter and some friends to see the new Ghostbusters. I am a die hard fan of the original Ghostbusters (GB84). When I first heard that a new movie was being made, I was skeptical. “How are they going to do this without Harold Ramis?” Then came the announcement that they were using an all female cast (an announcement that I believe was a mistake, but more on that later) and that the movie was a reboot as opposed to a sequel or spin off. Again, my pessimism took root; this was going to be a terrible movie.
I did it. I saw Josh Trank’s Fantastic Four movie.
Hello again to all you mischievous, diabolical geeks out there. It took me awhile, but I finally got around to watching Disney’s most recent take on Maleficent, so today I can bring you my blackened heart’s review. The truth is I don’t remember much of the original animated Disney classic Sleeping Beauty. I had watched it when I was a child, but it was an old movie from 1959, and quite frankly the only thing I remember about it was the dragon. Yup, that gorgeous green and purple dragon (my favorite colors!) who was Maleficent herself in that story was the only part worth remembering, but I was saddened that this dragon was killed so that the sleeping princess could be awoke with true love’s kiss. Well, I heard that this story was told from Maleficent’s perspective, and with the promise of a dragon I was lured in. Warning- spoilers to follow.
I think I was somehow accidentally transported to the 1980’s, since I have been catching up on some old classics like the original Star Trek series, and now here I find myself having finally (yes, as a 32 year old), finally watching the first two Terminator films. I won’t say it was by my choice, but I figured it was time to get up to speed on this series, seeing as how the upcoming film this summer stars Emilia Clarke and Matt Smith. I might as well understand all the background, and see what the Arnold hub-bub is all about. So here is my review of these first two films, with of course my feminine judgment and perspective.
Hello again geeks, today is a good day for me with regards to the Star Trek universe. Today I write the last review of the original six movies. This means I have successfully made it through The Original Series, and I am just as happy to be leaving them behind as I am to be heading towards The Next Generation. Here’s my review of the last of the original six movies, as well as a bonus summary of how I felt about all the movies.
