Scene 47: Anne asks the doctor what exactly killed her father, and what happened to the boat's crew. Peter asks what is this business about the dead having to be killed a second time.

The doctor broaches voodoo... despite not believing in it, supposedly.

A bleak ending really finishes off the film appropriately.Collapse )

Scene 24: We spend some time following Susan, as she glides through the water with her boobs and takes photos.

[Which would be a crawl and irritate me, but I already know the famous scene we're coming to, and it's all that its reputation suggests, so I won't complain.]


Yes, yes. It's shark vs zombie. And Mrs. Menard's scene is pretty infamous, too.Collapse )

Zombie
(1979)

Starring: Tisa Farrow, Ian McCulloch, Richard Johnson & Al Cliver
DIR: Lucio Fulci

Blurb (imdb): Strangers searching for a young woman's missing father arrive at a tropical island where a doctor desperately seeks the cause and cure of a recent epidemic of the undead.





My blurb: Considering the subject matter, we're likely to get gore in some screen caps. It won't include the most infamous, as you should see that for yourself in living, moving color.



Scene 01: We open on the sounds of voodoo drums in the background as our blurry vision takes in an arm. This arm swings a pistol slowly into our face (RUDE).

We have a strong pre-credits start and then some wandering plot...Collapse )

Boom!Buffy The Vampire Slayer
Issue 06


Writer: Jordie Bellaire, Artwork: David López & Raúl Angulo, Letters: Ed Dukeshire
Cover: Marc Aspinall






Page 01: We open on Willow's terrified face as something crowds over her.

It turns out to be a large dog-sized beetle, which is trying its hardest to rip her face off. In the background, Buffy is fighting another large insect.

Wills is given a last-minute save by a Buffy-powered sideways kick, that smashes the bug. Though it does leave Wills covered in bug guts, the color of dark Pepto.

Throughout, Willow seems more concerned about Xander's situation, and with blaming herself partly for it, than for her own safety.
The interesting twist on Robin kept me interested, and I liked the Soul Tie adventure.Collapse )

Boom!Angel
Issue 2


Writer: Bryan Edward Hill, Artwork: Gleb Melnikov & Gabriel Cassata, Letters: Ed Dukeshire
Cover: Dan Panosian





Page 01: We open in a flashback to Angelus, and the warrior Mara. She has been vamped, but she's not taking it very well.

Angelus has her in a dungeon cell. He tells Mara that the pain she's going through is the hunger. He tells her that if she believes that by denying herself blood, she'll just die, then she should know that vampires don't starve to death that way.

He sympathetically tells her that he knows she feels like she has a soul, but she doesn't. It's a memory of the person who used to inhabit her body. And it is continuing to fade from her.

Mara complains that he's damned her, but he counters that he set her free [& conveniently forgets that he offered a choice, and she took it of her own free will].
It's nice to be intrigued.Collapse )

How has this been around for two years, I'm just now hearing it?!

YEBBA - My Mind   ...   you just belt out that pain, Girl!

I think I could listen to this on repeat for days. Of course, what would be left lying on the floor doesn't do to think about.

Welcome back, my few readers still with me after my inexcusable, but uncorrected, lack of regular, timely posting.

We're again exploring the characters in the Buffyverse, where I spy with my little eye on their triumphs and tragedies - not from plot, but from character choices.

Our subject this time, is Season 10, Issue 10 ... with Harmony [sigh].
Lots of Kudos! Oh, but demerits, too.Collapse )

Hey Gang: Once again, it's been awhile since we've visited with TV-Buffy and the next review is for "Dopplegangland", so there is no excuse on my dragging my feet, really. But in the meantime, I've also realized it's been awhile since re-visited TV-Buffy for a Best Of/Worst Of Character Moments posting, too!

Well, let's correct that right now. We're looking at our characters with an appraising glare to issue a kudo for strong character, and a demerit for their failings.

In this post, we're looking at "Lovers Walk", episode 8 of season 3.
Wow. No kudos for our mains to be had. But demerits? We got those.Collapse )

Boom!Angel, Season 1, Issue 01

Writer: Bryan E. Hill, Artwork: Gleb Melnikov & Gabriel Cassata, Lettering: Ed Dukeshire, Cover: Kaiti Infante





Blurb Commentary: I'm not going to type out the blurbs, as I did with DH and IDW, but on this particular issue, there is an interesting line, "Angel, one of the only vampires in the world with a soul...".

Huh. We know that this isn't Spike... okay, we don't know that, but it seems highly unlikely to be Spike so this may be a hint that Dracula has been imported to the Boom!Buffyverse. It'd be fascinating if Dru and Spike split, and she ends up being a paramour of the Count. Especially the less comedic version of Dracula, more in keeping with his novel counterpart.



Eh. It was alright.Collapse )
