As before, here are my quick takes on the genre-related films I’ve watched in the last several weeks…a set of poor viewing experiences, as you can see…

  1. The Princess Bride (1987) – Destined to be a classic, if not one already. Although I saw this years ago, this is still a magicical film that perfectly combines adventure, humor and charm.
  2. The Golden Voyage of Sinbad (1974) and…
  3. Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger (1977) – I knew I was in for trouble re-watching these movies that I remember fondly from my childhood. Atrocious overacting, illogical plot progressions and awkward pacing were not enough to overcome Ray Harryhausen’s dated (but somehow still charming) stop-motion animation. Oh, and is that Tom Baker as the bad guy in The Golden Voyage of Sinbad? Yikes!
  4. Resident Evil: Extinction (2007) – How do you mess up a zombie movie? I can’t remember the last time I was this uninterested watching a movie that sounded good enough to watch in the first place.
  5. 9 (2009) – I loved the animation and the post-apocalyptic setting, but Shane Acker’s story needed more fleshing out to make it more cohesive. And interesting.
