Review for The Thing Below [25 Aug 2005|04:05am]
The Thing Below

Starring: Billy Warlock

Genre: Sci Fi/Thriller

Tagline: Fear is Rising.

Plot Outline: A top secret drilling platform in the Gulf of Mexico raises a dormant alien creature from the depths. Once loose, the creature goes on a murderous rampage.

The Thing Below or Sea Ghost, which was the orignal title, is about a group of Navy doctors who find a cave found 14.5 feet below the surface of the earth. They collect specimens from the cave and soon after run into some trouble. The specimen(s) are let loose and begin to take over.

Seriously, this movie sucked. Yeah, it was so fuckin' bad they had to change the name before it was released onto dvd. It's apparent, within the first 5 minutes (if that), that most of their budget went into the packaging. The box cover looked awesome! The star of this movie was Billy Warlock, who played A.J. Quartermain on General Hospital. I don't know what they were thinking. He couldn't hack it on a soap and he was eventually replaced so why would a producer think he could handle a full-length film? On the soap he played a drunk, or attempted to. How in the hell could he pull off being a ship captainin if he couldn't even be a drunk? The rest of the budget, which was exactly $2.15, went into the computerized squid/alien thingy that came from the cave. Did I mention that this squid/alien thing could turn into what you most desire? Or that it can transform into you once you are dead? This film seems to be modeled after The Terminator in a way.

In case you haven't figured out my rating:

Run very fast from this movie and don't look back, or a 0 out 7. Sorry, Dookie, it doesn't even get a 1.

Review for A lot Like Love [25 Aug 2005|04:28am]
"A Lot Like Love"

Starring:Ashton Kutcher and Amanda Peet

Genre: Romantic Comedy

Tagline: There's nothing better than a great romance... to ruin a perfectly good friendship.

Plot Summary: On a flight from Los Angeles to New York, Oliver (Kutcher) and Emily (Peet) make a connection.

This movie is about two ppl who meet in an awkward sitiation, and continue to cross paths for the next 7 years. Everytime they meet it's just as awkward as the first meeting but their chemistry quickly turns awkward into comfortable. Throughout the movie they both go through relationships and drastic changes but something out there fights to bring them together against both of their wishes.

Kutcher and Peet do have a lot of chemistry but was it enough to keep me interested? Yeah, it was. I actually liked this movie. I thought it was going to be a typical romantic comedy but there were a few twists that made me ponder the actual ending. I'm not a fan of Peet, or Kutcher for that matter, but they both kept me entertained. Of course it was cheesy but it made me feel like there is a love worth waiting for out there.

In case you haven't figured out my rating:

Pay full price for this movie or a 4.754329339483 for short.
