Comments– This was not the underwater version of Alien I was hoping/expecting it to be. Instead, this was a mix of romance, science fiction, disaster film, guy-going-crazy film, and war of the worlds. AKA: Not Good. There was WAY too much going on in this one for me to enjoy it, but even with everything happening, I got bored. Bridgette, on the other hand, claims that this is one her favorite 80’s sci-fi flicks. I honestly cannot see why. Disappointing-Good.
Starting after movie #100, we are going to change up our format a little bit (I want to have 100 movies with the current format so I can do some easy averaging). I figure after 100 movies this is getting a little stale, so changing things up will be good for both the readers and ourselves. There will be more links (akin to what I did with the last 10 movie updates), the Netflix summary (because I am not a fan of coming up with my own synopsis when a decent one is readily available), and we’ll be ditching the 10-point scale for something much more basic (essentially, we’ll be a much less qualified Siskel and Ebert…or whoever works with Ebert these days). If you have any suggestions on what you would like to read about, please leave a comment.
Thanks for reading.
