In order for a Dr. Who fan to enjoy this, they must first come to terms with the fact that the Doctor is made a human with the surname of Who. He also invented the TARDIS himself. It's not that hard to ignore, as once they leave Earth, the plot is pretty much exactly what one should expect from Who. He travels into space with a number of companions and must help a peaceful race stop those damn pesky Daleks. Cushing gives a rather decent performance, being absent minded but clever at the same time. Roy Castle is overused as a mumbling fool. He falls over when doors open, sits on things, runs into walls etc. But at least he has a slight arc as he overcomes his fears and becomes heroic. Linden is more of an excuse to have Castle come along, as she doesn't do much. Perhaps two guys and a little girl travelling in space together would have seemed too weird to some. Some of the writing is a bit rough, as it basically just wants to hurry along. When meeting his granddaughter's new boyfriend the first thing Who does is show him the time machine. Good score, decent enough effects, result in a movie that doesn't betray its television roots. With some clever writing this could easily be placed into The Doctor's timeline, but as it stands it is some cheesy sci-fi fun.
Fantastically shot and all round perfect. A complex and tense relationship is developed between the father and the boys and it builds to a stunning climax. The film is slow paced but it is worth it as every second should be savoured by the audience. This film is striking.
Surprisingly awesome vampire movie. I've been burned by the After Dark series before, but this had everything. It keeps its story simple. Teenagers journey far from home and are soon hunted down. It's nice to see a group of smart and funny young adults that don't deserve a punching. They even take precautions when accepting a ride from a truck-driver. Huzzah! The photography is very impressive. It all feels diluted, but in a dark and stylized way. It's almost comforting at first. The jumps and the gore that follow are fairly standard, but still effective. Some fine performances really capture the fear, frustration, and chaos, and it was nice to see one of the vampires scared at one point. It's short but sweet.
