Trick ‘r Treat

Posted in Film Review, Horror Movie Review with tags , , , , , , , , , on November 11, 2009 by xymarla

This B is really more of an average, splitting the difference between an A for tone, structure, and gore, and a big fat EFFFFF for camera work. I’m looking for a way to express how catastrophic the camera work is for Trick ‘r Treat, and I’m landing somewhere between soft-core porn and Lifetime original movie.

Oh yes. That bad.

It’s a quickie today, folks! Sorry for the systemic whittling down of DIH, but I promise to beef it back up with a vengeance in 6 weeks (aka: post-nuptially).

Posh D has unveiled a new blog: Forever Young Adult! Also featuring Erin, frequent commenter here! I am forever in PD’s debt after she loaned me Hunger Games, so take her recommendations very seriously, folks.

20th Century Fox is rebooting the Fantastic Four franchise, hopefully with an entirely new cast and creative team because the last ones sucked ass.

Dollhouse End of Season Review

Posted in Television Review with tags , , , , , , , on May 12, 2009 by xymarla

 

Well, Friday marked Dollhouse‘s final episode of the seri…season! I mean season! We’ll most likely find out during the May 18 Fox upfronts whether we’ll get a chance to follow in season two the many intriguing plot lines left all dangly and enticing with the season finale, “Omega.” Here are the (mostly) non-spoilery questions I’m dying to have answered:

  • Will we ever find out Mellie/November/Madeleine’s full story?
  • What the hell is going on with Topher and “Dr. Saunders”? There’s definitely a provocative history there.
  • How’s Ballard going to manage his new position?
  • Exactly how big (and evil) is the Rossum Corporation?
  • What “girl” brought Boyd to the Dollhouse?
  • When oh when will we see Alpha again?
  • What’s going to happen with Victor next season?
  • Will I ever be as frosty awesome as Adelle Dewitt?

So many questions! Please oh please let them have the opportunity to be answered. In the meantime, here’s a brief recap of the roller coastery season.  (You can find my recap of the pilot here, my mid-season review here, and my brief review of the fantastic penultimate episode “Briar Rose” here.) SPOILERS BELOW!

If you haven’t watched last Friday’s Dollhouse ep “Briar Rose”… !!!! Watch it immediately! If you have watched it, WATCH IT AGAIN.

ALPHA! Victor! Doc Saunders! Gross Ballard! VICTOR!

SO! MUCH! HAPPENED!

Fox, if you cancel this show after lighting the fire of obsession within the cockles of my soul…I will CUT YOU.

Ah-hem. That is all. Carry on.
