(jp) wrote: This is an interesting addendum to the Battlestar Galactica canon that goes back to the very beginning of the story and recontextualizes much of what happens in the show's first two seasons. It is strictly for dedicated BSG fans - it's meant to be seen only after you've seen the entirety of the show, and would make no sense/spoil everything for people who are new to BSG (in fact, you should stop reading this review if you haven't yet watched BSG but plan to). If you do know your Cylons by name and number , though, this is a fun look at BSG that adds a new layer to the plot and themes of the show.Essentially, what the movie does is to revisit key moments from the first two seasons (often actually recycling the footage from the original episodes) and show how those events are all secretly connected to one of two models of Cylon #1/Cavill. This was a great choice, since Cavill was an interesting character and essentially served as the show's main villain eventually, but didn't actually get developed in his own right all that much. We watch two versions of Cavill, one on the fleet and on on Caprica, as they manipulate events with the other Cylons from behind the scenes. It adds some motivations for the other characters, but it also really fleshes out Cavill himself and explains a lot about why he hated the human race so much in the first place. The different paths taken by the two Cavill models also suggest alternate possibilities and depths for the character. Jane Espenson's script is a great example of finding a new way to work around a pre-existing story.The actor who gets the most new footage, therefore, is Dean Stockwell as Cavill, and he's just as great as ever in the role. Rick Worthy, the black Cylon who never got developed much, also gets substantially more to do than he had in the past. Tricia Helfer, Grace Park, Aaron Douglas, and Callum Keith Rennie all get to flesh out the "human" sides of their complex Cylon characters a bit more as well. Unfortunately, the film doesn't have time to show any new material with other favorite characters, such as Roslin, Adama, Tigh, or Baltar. The visual aesthetic is the same as it was on the show; I definitely appreciated how much the show's gritty, often almost documentary-style approach enhanced its feeling of realism and immediacy. The film was actually directed by Edward James Olmos himself, and he keeps the feel and tone you expect from BSG. Ultimately, the revelations of this movie aren't the sort that force you to radically rethink the show, and there aren't too many big dramatic moments you haven't already seen. But it is worth watching just to see things from the villain's point of view and better understand why he started the war in the first place. It's too bad that this will be the last we'll see of Battlestar Galactica.

I saw this one on sci fi a while back and I liked it, I still do, it's no where near as good as the Story "The Shadow Over Innismouth" but it has the mood and tone right for what they were trying to accomplish. Most people who are interested in the Mythos i've showed this movie to enjoyed it a lot. So it can't be too bad. It is a bit slow at times but the scenes where the protagonist runs through the town and the last part with the giant thing in the pit are enjoyable. Not too scary, but it's not for kids.
(es) wrote: a little too self-congratulating in the 'documentary' scenes, which are almost shot more like scenes out of a regular narrative film (Hackford usually doesn't make docs anyway), but it does grab a good feel for the period that it comes from in the 1950's. And of course the music is all made of win.

(kr) wrote: Vaguely tongue-in-cheek, Freaks is good but slightly tiresome in its over-the-top satirical view of the horror genre. In contemporary viewings, Freaks could be a wonderful metaphor for the dehumanisation that renders a victim of discrimation and prejudice socially and morally unconscious. It's smart and was released way before its time and has surprisingly aged extremely well, however it isn't as entertaining as some would have you believe. Nevertheless its increasingly iconic, has aged like a fine wine and deserves its place amongst the ranks of horror classics. "We accept her one of us we accept her one of us..."

(us) wrote: This was one of the worst movies I've ever seen. The cast (who are supposed to be 21-23 years old) ALL blatantly look like they're in their 30's. Script was slow and dragged out. Essentially, this movie was a 2 hour long episode of a TV show that was aired originally for athletic 13 year old boys who don't value anything intellectual.
(ru) wrote: This film is, first and foremost, gorgeous with amazing direction by its legendary director. It's at times funny, at times sad. It's not very original in story or execution but it's solid as a film that exists within a specific genre. Wayne is great, Ford is great, this movie's great.
