Re: What Doctor who DVDs are you watching today?

Praxeus / Can You Hear Me? It's reached the point where I'm having a great deal of trouble staying awake throughout these episodes... It really is difficult to maintain any interest, particularly with all the angsty crap in the latter of these two snooze-athons. Jodie is so unconvincing that I actu...

Re: Dracula film+tv adaptations. #3.4 Taste the Blood of Dracula (1970)

Taste the Blood of Dracula (1970) With the substantial success of the previous 2 sequels, Hammer began filming Taste the Blood of Dracula in 1969. Released early in 1970, this film, perhaps partially drawing on Hammer's earlier success with Christopher Lee in the film 'The Devil Rides Out', (1968) ...

Re: What Doctor who DVDs are you watching today?

Battlefield McCoy gets to do lots of shouting. Not good. :lol: Despite the nonsense plot, and some appalling acting, I find hard to hate this one. In spite of all the naff bits, at least if feels like Dr Who. The highlight for me is Jean Marsh's performance as Morgaine. At much as it slips over int...

Re: Dracula film+tv adaptations. #3.3 Dracula Has Risen From the Grave (1968)

Dracula Has Risen From the Grave (1968) Still continuing their gothic setting, this film is characteristicly big on atmosphere, & is beautifully shot, containing some of my favourite cinematography of the entire franchise. Sadly, there's still no sign of Cushing's return as Van Helsing, & instead w...

Re: What Doctor who DVDs are you watching today?

Fugitive of the Judoon So apparently there's a convenient, previously unheard of incarnation of 'The Doctor' (honest), who just happens to be a black female. (Yeah, right) Oh and... Barrowman. The score for this shit is obviously: Barrowman. :lol: Battlefield McCoy gets to do lots of shouting. Not ...

Re: Dracula film+tv adaptations. #3.1 Brides of Dracula. (1960)

Brides of Dracula (1960) Like Universal studios before them, Hammer films followed up their 1958 Dracula adaptation in 1960, with a film that didn't actually feature the Count himself, So the title was a rather misleading: Brides of Dracula, which was really a sequel for Van Helsing, rather than Dr...

I'm disappointed to see Legend ranked so lowly, but different strokes. Have you ever seen the Mr Vampire films? Legend might not seem quite so odd with those in mind (Though I agree as a Dracula film it fails. Its better as a Vampire film.)
I'm not really into comedy/horror.
