The mother of all sequals…
Jaws will always be remembered in history for so many things, but what I’ve chose to comment here, is about how sequels are now part of the main stream and how they are marketed. Planet of the Apes, and few other ‘franchises’ had existed before Jaws, but none have been copied, parodied, or are engraved in the mind of the public as the Jaws franchise. Jaws was one of the first film franchises to use a number after the title, along with aggressive add campains. For years every sequel that has come out uses something from the Jaws ‘book’ of ‘how to’ when it comes to sequels. Down to the taglines: ‘Just when you thought it was safe…,’ ‘See it before…’ ‘The (place your number here) dimension in terror’,…and the all too famous: ‘This time…it’s personal..’Face it, the Jaws sequels are bad, and yet still can be watched, because they are not as bad as most sequels, yet taught many film makers what NOT to do with a franchise.

“Alien” 1979 by Ridley Scott – Movie Review
“Alien” is a break-through film. A sensation on the battlefield for the moviegoers’ money. The movie which, along with several other movies shot in the late 70’s – early 80’s, defined the mainstream for many years (I would also mention that the era of “Alien” is not over yet, although it is close to its sunset as never before).
Gothic story in futuristic surroundings convincingly dusted by the wind of time (the interiors of the ship were artificially “aged”) sets the highest standards for the genre of space sci-fi. And a few have managed to surpass it. To tell the truth only James Cameron was able to do better in the “Aliens”.
Originally the screenwriter Dan O’Bannon was thinking about the storyline of gremlins spreading havoc on board the B-17 bomber. Later B-17 turned into a small starship named “Snark” with exclusively male crew. But the producers insisted that two women be included in the crew, and one of them should defeat the main villain. Time has shown that it was the right decision. Seemingly fragile but strong Ripley became the second – after her toothy enemy – most important symbol of the “Alien” cult universe.
According to the original intent the dying alien would scratch a triangle on the dashboard. Searching his ship the people from “Nostromo” would find a stone pyramid nearby with the aliens eggs. This idea was never implemented (though Giger did the necessary sketches), but the idea of the pyramid was finally used in the “Aliens v. Predator” movie.

” Alien Resurrection” 1997 by Jean-Pierre Jeunet – Movie Review
Sci-Fi thriller “Alien: Resurrection” finalizes the quadrilogy of cult series about Aliens. In “Alien 4″ we bid farewell to Ripley so wonderfully impersonated by Sigourney Weaver. The final victory is won and the aliens will never be able to cause irreparable damage to the Earth and endanger the existence of humankind.
“Alien: Resurrection” Plot Summary
Ripley is successfully cloned from the eighth attempt, and the alien embryo is given new life with her. The military seem to be not able to abandon the crazy unrealizable idea of taming the aliens, turning them into creatures under human control. They do not want to recognize that this lethal weapon could destroy human civilization forever. Nobody can manage to breed the aliens in captivity, neither did anybody manage to train them. In “Alien 4″ Ripley gets a second life, but cloning has caused an unexpected effect of hybridization. She is extremely strong, has a highly developed instincts. Her blood like the blood of Aliens is capable to burn through metal. She calls herself ‘mother of the monster” and has the ability to feel the presence of monsters. She became much colder and sober-minded than she was in her real life.
The criminal military officials’ plans extend so far that they are willing to pay the pirates for kidnapping. The live cargo is going to be a ‘farm’ for breeding these extremely ‘attractive’ creatures. But Aliens do not doze for an extra minute, they spend great time spreading inside the research center. Although Ripley is perceived by the scientists as the production waste, she and the female android Annalee Call (Winona Rider) are to save the humankind from the invasion of the terrible Aliens.

Alien 3 taglines: Start running … again. The bitch is back
|Directors: David Fincher|
|IMDB Rating: 6.1out of 10
” Alien?” 1992 by David Fincher – Movie Review
A rare case for Hollywood: the “Alien 3″ movie is so bizarre, so non-for-profit that it is pretty surprising it got shot and released to the theatres. The film has undergone an unusually complex preparation process: the script was at different times written by the famous cyberpunk writer William Gibson and screenwriter Eric Red, among the previous assigned directors were Renny Harlin and Vincent Ward (director of the “The Navigator: A Mediaeval Odyssey”, 1988), some of Ward’s storyline ideas entered the final script, which was then modified by producers David Giler and Walter Hill. The latter said later that in the “Alien 3″ he sees a certain connotations associated with the AIDS virus: well, it might be the way it is. The last of the directors, David Fincher, by the time was known mostly for a few inventive rock-music videos. Subsequently this director got famous for strong thrillers “Se7en” (1995) and “The Game” (1997).
Alien 3 Plot Summary
A remote planet, neglected ore refinery- a correctional facility for especially dangerous criminals with extra Y-chromosome. An escape vessel in which Ripley, Newt, Hicks, and a droid called Bishop are traveling on crash lands on Fiorina 161. Unfortunately, although Newt and Hicks do not survive the crash, the brisk and tenacious form of life does and it is probably somewhere nearby, in the endless factory ventilation shafts. The rescuer team from the Corporation is already speeding to rescue, though who knows whom exactly they are going to save? Therefore Ripley and the local black sanctimonious leader have raised the convicts to fight the alien monster – and the alien habitually tears all the living beings into parts but somehow it doesn’t touch the heroine.

“The Shining” Plot Summary
A family heads to an isolated hotel for the winter where an evil and spiritual presence influences the father into violence, while his psychic son sees horrific forebodings from the past and of the future.
One of the Scariest Movies Of All Time!!!
This is the classic horror! Stanley Kubrick’s Finest! The scariest of the ‘Kubrick Stares’ has to be Jack Nicholson looking through the door in the classic horror scene. The camera, music, acting, and scares are top notch! I highly recommend this movie to: Horror fans, Kubrick fans, psychological thriller fans, and even Nicholson fans. You will love this movie to death! Four out of four stars. A definative classic! SEE IT!

“Village” Movie Review
“Village” Plot Summary
The population of a small, isolated countryside village believe that their alliance with the mysterious creatures that inhabit the forest around them is coming to an end.
Amazing movie, don’t listen to critics
The Village is an excellent movie in all respects, possibly not Shyamalans best, but definitely up there. I really can’t imagine why reviewers gave it low scores, I don’t know anyone personally that dislikes the movie at all.
The Village centers around a quaint 19th century village in the middle of nowhere. The inhabitants of the village are relatively happy, despite the constant fear of the horrible creatures in the woods surrounding the village.
The characters are extremely believable and beautifully crafted. Granted, there is some broken dialogue, and it makes one cringe at one point or another, but it is not common and does not ruin the characterization. Joaquin Phoenix is excellent as usual, as is Bryce Dallas Howard, a new face in the cast of Oscar winning actors.
The plot is a typical Shyamalan twist fest with a little romance added for good measure. This does not take away from the atmosphere at all, however, and is done very well. There are a couple parts that are quite chilling, but not SCARY per se. I definitely felt a tingle run down my spine a few times. The ending, if it hasn’t already been ruined for you or you don’t figure it out half way through the movie, will leave you in shock.
Overall, this is an amazing movie, I highly recommend it to anyone and everyone; you will not be disappointed.

“A Nightmare on Elm Street” Plot Summary
In the dreams of his victims, a specteral child murderer stalks the children of the members of the lynch mob that killed him.
Another good movie from the past
Before I start reviewing this wonderful series I must say that for the longest time I had wanted to and now have had the chance to watch it. Now to the review, what can I say, hmmmmz, maybe that this film was an awesome movie with a lot of blood, gore and killing that I love
Nancy Thompson(Heather Langenkamp)has been having dreams. So have her friends Tina(Amanda Wyss), Glen(Johnny Depp)and Rod(Jsu Garcia). And all of the dreams that they have been having seemed to center about a man that wears a brown fedora hat, red and green striped sweater and a clawed hand of deathly precautions. One by one Nancy sees her friends die to the hands of the killer. That is until she makes him come into the real world and learning that she holds the power of his strength and weaknesses
The ending was a great success as it shouted out that Freddy Krueger(Robert Englund)is not done with his revenge upon the civilians of Elm Street. I gave this an 8 as I felt it needed to be a lot longer.

“Blade: Trinity” Movie Review
“Blade III” Plot Summary
Blade, now a wanted man by the FBI, must join forces with the Nightstalkers to face his most challenging enemy yet: Dracula
Blade: Trinity is a very good film that has a good cast which includes Wesley Snipes, Kris Kristofferson, Dominic Purcell, Jessica Biel, Ryan Reynolds, Parker Posey, Mark Berry, John Michael Higgins, Callum Keith Rennie, Paul Michael Levesque, Paul Anthony, Francoise Yip, Michael Rawlins, James Remar, Natasha Lyonne, Haili Page, Patton Oswalt, Ron Selmour, Christopher Heyerdahl, and Eric Bogosian! The acting by all of these actors is very good. Snipes is really excellent in this film. I thought that he performed good as usual. Purcell really surprised Me! I hope he’ll be in some more action and horror pictures in the future. Biel was really terrific here. I was really amazed by her performance. I would like to see her in more action films as well. Reynolds was good. Posey and Lyonne were really good. I was surprised that Paul Michael Levesque AKA WWE’s HHH or Hunter Hearst Helmsley was in this film. Having followed his WCW days as Terra Ryzing until recently it was wired to see another top wrestling is a big budget film. To Me he actually was pretty good and quite hilarious. I think in the future if he decides to be in more movies that he’ll play very good characters and even in leading roles like fellow wrestlers The Rock and Hulk Hogan. Remar and Bogosian were very good as well. There are a few scenes that I thought were cool. The interview Bogosian did was really cool. The fight scenes in the very beginning were also very cool. I loved the police station scenes and how Snipes says Vampires exist and gives the scare to the shrink! Also cool camera following Blade in the police station as well! Just awesome! The thrills and action is really good and some of it is surprising. The Dracula character was really remarkable. In his monster form he reminded Me a lot of Imhotep from the MuMmy and the MuMmy Returns! The special effects are great! The movie is filmed very good. The music is great by Ramin Djawadi and The RZA. Great directing by David S. Goyer. The film is quite interesting and the movie really keeps you going until the end. This is a very good and thrilling film. If you like Wesley Snipes, Kris Kristofferson, Dominic Purcell, Jessica Biel, Ryan Reynolds, Parker Posey, Mark Berry, John Michael Higgins, Callum Keith Rennie, Paul Michael Levesque (WWE’s HHH), James Remar, Natasha Lyonne, Eric Bogosian, the rest of the cast in the film, The other Blade movies, Horror, Action, Adventure, Thrillers, Fantasy, Comic, and interesting films then I strongly recommend you to see this film today! Movie Nuttball’s NOTE: On the second DVD in the Blade: Trinity case there is a special nearly two hour making of the third Blade movie. It shows how the music, special effects, fighting, sound, and everything else was done by the actors and crew. Biel and Reynolds talk about a possible spin off movie called ‘The Nightstalkers’. I wouldn’t mind that and I certainly wouldn’t mind another Blade film. In one of the other segments Jessica Biel talks about how hard she had to train and how difficult it was. She done her very best to make you happy. Snipes and Purcell fought the fight you wanted! The director tried to make this the most explosive vampire film ever seen for you and yet you people still complain! Thanks for reading!

“Secret Window” Plot Summary

i love this movie!
i love this movie, its great for the simple fact that Stephen king wrote the basic story line . the movie is pretty close cut from the book with a few exceptions like in the book he drinks Pepsi and in the movie he drinks mountain dew(or maby its the other way around) but other then a few things like that its pretty true to the masterpiece that is any Stephen king work, if u liked movies like psycho and identity u will love secret window because of the mind boggling psychological turn of all rational thought into a twilight zone that can only be described as the human mind when at its best and most vulnerable state.the fact that king opens eyes to the part of the brain that is only slightly touched in movies like red dragon(also awesome). definitely watch this movie if u like psychology related horror!

“Saw III” Movie Review
“Saw 3″ Plot Summary
Jigsaw kidnaps a doctor to keep him alive while he watches his new apprentice put an unlucky citizen through a brutal test.
Great movie, but a little too dark
..and by dark I mean the way it was filmed not content. I give this film a 8, only because the original SAW was perfect ,thus making this one one notch lower
First of all, for all those of you who so horrible turned in disgust, This movie is not made for PANSYS like you. Go watch A comedy
Second; for all of you think the movie is not credible. So What! You go to the movies for entertainment, in other words to see things you would otherwise never get a chance to see. You want realistic? Watch a Home movie instead. This comment is especially for those who ask ‘where are the authorities’ Boo Hoo.. If you watch SAW 2 ,then you know that ‘JigSAW’ and Amanda can get to anyone at anytime. inlcluding the authorities
With that aside ,this is a great film. Gory to the max? Maybe not so much, but it does attain that effect with bone crushing and flesh tearing sound effects. A good improvement for the series
The story line is very good, because this time around the victims do not soley rely on themselves for salvation, but rather on other people’s actions: For those of you too ignorant to grasp the concept of needless killings, I’ll explain it to you. The reason most of the victims were doomed in this installment is because ‘Jigsaw’ was not fully in control, but rather passed on the torch to Amanda, who is even more twisted than ‘JIGSAW’ She somehow blames the world for her state of mind and seriously believes that no one changes after they are given that second oppotunity. She of course, bases this belief on her own life
The second plot involves a father, Jeff, who is so consumed with hatred over those responsible for his son’s death, that he would rather let them die right before his eyes. Including a witness , The man responsible and the judge in the case
This rules out senseless killing of innocent people. Finally there is Lynn, who because of her failing marriage turns to adultery to satisfy her needs. Sound familiar? Does Dr. Lawrence Gordon ring a bell
So once again ‘JigSaw’ puts this sinners through a series of tests to prove if they appreciate the life they were given. ..And for the comment about these being innocent people. NEWSFLASH, Last time I checked WRATH and LUST were 2 of the 7 deadly sins, so in no way are these people innocent
The tests this time around involve Torture devices that border medieval times, but are still fun to watch. Not at all for the squeamish
Also very important are the Flashbacks that explain missing puzzle pieces to the previous two films . All in all a very complete trilogy and a great way to end this saga. Oops too late. Part 4 is underway
My only questions about the movie are? What really happens to Det
Eric Mathews? Other than a crushed ankle we are only told that Amanda left him for dead
Will we see his actual demise in part 4? and what of the poster scene were teeth are being pulled out? Or did I miss this when I went for popcorn? Somehow It doesn’t fit into the storyline?Final words: A great addition to the Horror genre. Who ever didn’t like it or complained about gore and nudity, should really just not go see these movies. All you really do is waste time with your Pansy reviews.
