What did you watch this week (03/09-09/09)
Busy week for me so not a lot of movies.
DOA : Dead or Alive (2006 DVD) : I stayed away from this movie as long as I could but always was curious about it. Especially since I fell in love with Jaime Pressly in My name is Earl. The trailer is better than the film, that’s for sure. I wish it could at least have been a ‘so bad it’s good’ kind of movie but it’s not. Just a bad movie with a few moments of good fighting and one or two highlights. 3.5/10
The abominable Dr. Phibes (1971 DVD): ’’ A doctor, scientist, organist, and biblical scholar, Anton Phibes, seeks revenge on the nine doctors he considers responsible for his wife's death.’’ Strange and intelligent, weird and funny, creepy with a cool atmosphere and solid acting. I think that’s a good description for this film. The two investigators were fun to watch. The murders were even more fun. (Except the one with the rats on the plane) 7-7.5/10
The Chinese Zodiac (Sap ji sang ciu 2012 Bluray) : Those who follow this thread for a while now know that Im a loyal Jackie Chan fan but this one was a miss for me. It’s too childish, the story was too standard, the special effects were poor and it seriously lacks realism. Otherwise, it was colorful, the pace was good although it was a bit too long and the fight scenes were okay although there wasn’t enough of them. 5/10
Preacher Season 1 (DVD): I loved it. The Pilot was good but episode 6 (The Sundowner) was the best of all. The last episode left me with mixed feelings but I hope to find Season 2 on AMC.com because I can’t wait to continue this show.
