Playing TA with the soundtrack from Mario 2 on. Slightly disconcerting :)

Two-Sentence Movie Reviews

Horror Hotel/The City of the Dead

Repetitive, uninteresting, and not overly burdened with historical facts- for example, accused witches weren't actually burned in New England, and since this is *the* major plot point, it's a glaring oversight- with the addition of characters who are completely resistant to sense, scenes that are done several times over (driving to the village is shown four separate times) sets that have been repurposed from a Western film, and attempts to build atmosphere out of dim lighting and nothing else. And how useful is it to the evil characters that they're evil, anyway, considering their major superpower seems to be the ability to spend eternity in a crummy one-street burg?

Rise And Shine, Doctor Freeman...

Another Half-Life photoshoot, but a quick one this time, because despite the bare ground it was still incredibly cold out. We've got a lot more ideas (which is good, because I keep getting requests for more from fellow DeviantArt users) but they're going to have to wait for more reasonable weather. That lab coat doesn't block the wind at all...

#while browsing the Wikipedia page on Galactus and reaching the section that details his "appearance" in the "film" Fantastic Four 2 (the Rifftrax of which we had just watched)#

Owlvark: "Did they try very hard to avoid sarcasm in the write-up?"
Duamuteffe: "Oh yeah. They explained that it was because of the Silver Surfer movie, which was assumed to be upcoming, and they didn't want to spoil what he actually looked like. I guess."
Owlvark: "Wait, but he's dead. So they're going to make a film about the Civil Service- er, the Silver Surfer-"
Duamuteffe: "You called him the Civil Service."
Owlvark: "Yeah, I-"
Duamuteffe: "That would be a way more entertaining film than the one we just watched."

I've been on a Total Annihilation binge all week, blissfully spending my afternoons pitting my robot army against other, evil robot armies.
