(mx) wrote: An inspiring sports drama with a well written story. A drama that chronicles the entire 1988 season of the Permian High Panthers of Odessa, Texas, with football players, coaches, mothers, fathers, pastors, boosters, fans and families struggling with ongoing personal conflicts while the team fights for a state championship. A town for sale, Odessa, Texas has seen better days--the financial bust evident in its boarded-up shops and broken lives. Yet one hope sustains the community where, once a week during the fall, the town and its dreams come alive beneath the dazzling and disorienting Friday night-lights. When the Permian High Panthers take to the field. In a city where economic uncertainty has eroded the spirit of its inhabitants, nearly everyone seeks comfort in the religion of the Friday night ritual, where the unfulfilled dreams of an entire community are shifted onto the shoulder pads of a team of high-school athletes.It feels like the sports drama has the potential to be extremely impactful but at the same time, it also has the potential to be the most cliche. Nowadays, most sports movies tend to follow the same routine, making them predictable and saturated. Considering this film is much older, its story is still well written and although it's a little predictable at times, it still makes for some powerful moments.It really feels like this film has a Southern vibe in it and since its set in Texas, that's kind of a given. Considering this story took place years and years ago, it does feel like a different period within sports. The way people view their sports and the kids that play in it is much different then how they're treated today. Not necessarily in terms of glamour, but in a different kind of way. I enjoy the story and it feels like something we don't see ALL the time. The screenplay was well written and like I said earlier, there were a handful of powerful moments in this film. Every player has their own learning curve and hardships that they have to face, and each one feels different. You have a variety of personalities among the team and it never felt like any of the conflict was forced. I like seeing these teenagers grow and just how they navigate the pressure of this time period. Along with the screenplay, the editing and the soundtrack were also fitting for the film. It felt like the pacing was done really well and the film was well directed. It's a really solid piece of work and it's a sports film that I think many people should watch.

Though, from the movie, it seems it is more likely that these are actually illusions that they are able to cast to appear human since it is shown in the movie that they can be invisible as well as make other objects change appearance or become invisible as well, i.e. Charles's car. However, this does not seem to work on cats. Cats seem to see through the illusions and seem to be the natural enemy of the sleepwalkers. The dialogue between Charles and his mother quickly explain that they haven't seen another of their kind in years and Charles fears that they are the last of their kind. They feed off the life energy of the pure, i.e. virgins. Charles hunts young virgin girls, takes their energy, and then feeds himself and his mother from this energy. Charles picks Tanya as his new victim in the new town. At the start of the movie we see that the family has just left another town where the cops were closing in. The cops find the mummified body of another girl, presumably the last victim before the family ran. Charles first meets Tanya and does a little smoozing to determine if she is a "nice" girl. She seems to past the test. Instead of taking Tanya's lifeforce quickly, it seems Charles is actually attracted to her. Mother isn't happy with this and slaps Charles around. Mother is hungry and is therefore angry. Charles then attacks Tanya on their picnic date. Unfortunately for Charles, Tanya fights back and he is severely wounded. Once back home, mother sees to Charles wounds and plots revenge on Tanya and her family. Fun and horror ensues. This is a great little 90's horror movie that is just right for popcorn. It has funny moments with a little splash of horror. There is a pedophile high school teacher named Mr. Phallus for goodness sake. There are great cameos of Stephen King, Clive Barker, and others.

(us) wrote: Attack of the Giant Leeches is significantly below the average of some of Roger Corman's worst work, because the poor visual quality and lighting make things difficult to comprehend. Plus, the story goes nowhere and the horror elements are minimal beyond the theme of Giant Leeches in which case the horror comes from the audience's idea of how the events occurring would play out. But the idea of Giant Leeches is scarier than this 62 minute dull poppycock that some actually call a film, when I would call it a slowly paced bore-fest which isn't anywhere close to being as fun as the stupidity and cheesiness might suggest. Attack of the Giant Leeches doesn't deserve to be used in the same sentence as the word cheese, and there's a reason people don't make movie like this anymore: Because a movie like this doesn't have enough to qualify to be a movie. Attack of the Giant Leeches just really sucked. No, that was not a pun.
