Don’t eat my new pets — yet.” bgbear_rnh A giant snake is not scary enough. Better make him a rattler. Cullen Waters Now THAT’S a cover! Beckoning Chasm Once again, apparently women don’t need air to breathe. Cullen Waters Maybe Cap and Rip are just overdressed for the occasion? bgbear_rnh After years as a torch singer in smokey night clubs the lady can breath just about anything. Flangepart “Cigaret smoke? Methane? Bring it on, baby.” The shark pirates of Pisces…are they stealing sharks, or are the pirates sharkoids? Just who taught these clowns grammar, Yoda? Rock Baker I decided to do a couple of time travel movies on New Year’s, something that I might make an annual tradition. This year it was CYBORG 2087 and BEYOND THE TIME BARRIER! bgbear_rnh I watched “Time after Time” but, it was just serendipity. Ken_Begg I’m assuming they ride space sharks into battle, because anything else would be significantly lamer. bgbear_rnh and must it be pointed how the sharks are armed Flangepart Sharks with lasers! The Rev. I watched New Year’s Evil, which I’m going to call a murder mystery because despite its efforts it is not a slasher film. I would have to say that no one should bother. There was only one possible culprit (unless they went the random nobody route), almost no blood, no gore, a fairly low body count (although that at least has an in-movie reason), a lot of really ’80s music (particularly the theme song), a “twist” ending you can see coming a mile away, and although Roz Kelly looks quite fine and does well with her lead role, most everyone else is forgettable. I will say the climax involves a rather nicely done bit of body acting from the masked killer, as well as a delightfully obvious dummy being tossed off a building. Between this and To All a Good Night, my holiday slashers this year were pretty meh. Except for watching Silent Night, Deadly NIght again. Gamera977 I was skipping though the channels and bumped into a new Who marathon on BBC America. Caught a few episodes I hadn’t seen yet including one with Timothy Dalton as the president of Galifrey! Gamera977 I have to wonder if Captain Science ever hangs out with Doctor Navy???
