TDK's Horror Reviews: Return of the Living Dead 3 (1993)

So this is yet another review of a horror movie from me and I continue the franchise and I will review Return of the Living Dead 3.It's the last movie from the franchise and since it started out well and the second part was so bad,the third part is for me the best of the three.

The story is simple,it is even a romance.A boy and a girl fall in love.The boy's father is an army man and he gets fired from his job and they are transfered to Oklahoma but the boy doesn't want to go because he loves his girlfriend,so they run away.While on the road with the motorcycle the girl distracts the guy and he loses control.So they fall and she dies.The boy is heart broken and since earlier they saw the army project where they resurrect dead people he tries to do that and things get out of control.

The thing that works out the best in this movie is that the director doesn't try to make this a comedy horror but he just goes for gore horror and things play out perfectly.After watching this movie I remembered why when I was little I was so freaked out of it.The movie is sick and it really makes zombies something you should fear.They cannot be stopped and they are looking disgusting and really creepy.The effects and make up are amazing and the man eating creatures look like the most menacing thing you can imagine.

The play of the actors is almost too good for a horror movie and the movie apart from having some small flaws in the plot it is almost brilliant.The actors do a great job and the two leading actors make this like one of the best romantic stories ever.Even though it is disgusting and she is eating people. :P

The zombies are the best thing here.They are the most awesome thing.It's a big joy for me to watch them wander around looking for food and when they find somebody to eat it is scary and it just makes you want to look back.

The movie is one of my favorite ones from the zombie franchise and it made a comedy horror franchise that was almost garbage look awesome and end with a bang.This is one of the most frightening movies I have ever seen and it is a must watch for every horror fan.Even though it doesn't have high rates on websites like IMDB and that is part of a bad comedy franchise it plays out almost perfectly like a stand alone horror flick.Every zombie fan should see it.

NOW GO!

TDK's Horror Reviews: Return of the Living Dead(1985)

So yesterday I thought it would be great if I make a segment like this in which I review horror movies that I have seen.I am a big horror fan and I have seen many reviews over the years and I thought why not.So from now on I will review horror classics,modern horrors and maybe sometime some horor games.We'll see.

So the first movie of this segment will be a zombie classic - The Return of the Living Dead.Since I was little I always refused to watch zombie movies because I was never really interested into the whole thing.But since I watched The Walking Dead I started slowly to love the zombies and the whole genre.And then I remembered that when I was a kid I watched the third part of this movie and got really scared.So I thought I should watch the whole series and give my opinion on them.

So this is a basic zombie movie.It starts with a guy starting to work in a storehouse and he is learning the basics of the job.And his tutor tells him about real life zombies being stored in the basement which are actually the things from another horror classic - Night of the Living Dead.And so they act stupid,go downstairs and see the things and of course they do a stupid thing and hit the barrels the zombies are in.And some strange gas is released and they get knocked down.Later on the guy's friends go to take him to a party and they caught in the middle of the whole thing because of the gas that is released all of the zombies in the cemetery next to them rise up.And that's where everything begins.

This is supposed to be a commedy horror and in the beginning it is something like that.The whole reason about the rise of the dead is stupid and it is normal in a horror movie.There is always that fool that gets everything into action in a horror flick.This actually plays out perfectly with the actors.They are not some really famous guys that everyone knows but they do a good job.They act really paranoid and who wouldn't be when they see the dead rise from the grave.Sometimes they were exagerating and it was annoying with all of the forced screaming but maybe that's how they do it.My absolute favorite character here was Spider.And the actor that played him was that black guy I really like as an actor but I can't get to memorize his name.He did the most brilliant job of the bunch of guys that were in this and he deserves the most respect.

And I am coming to the most important part,the zombies.Were they frightening - maybe.Were they good - for me no.In this movie there were those kinds of zombies which I don't like.The zombies that non stop are saying 'BRAIIINSS!' and that word was said too many times in this movie.Because of that phrase I have hated zombie movies my whole life.I want the zombies to be silent and frightening,not mindless idiots that yell non stop what they want to eat.I get it,they eat brains.Also I don't know why but like 95% of the zombies that came from the cemetery looked like they have died like 2 weeks ago and that cemetery looked abandoned for years.Almost none of them had lost shape and looked like dirty,sick people.I don't have a particular problem with that but I found it strange.

The strangest and worst moment for me in the movie was when the paramedics were being eaten by the zombies.And whenever the zombies had already ate them,they went into the ambulance and ordered more and later that happened with the police officers also.It looked like they were in a restaurant and were just ordering more and more meals because their hunger wasn't going away.I didn't get the part why they were so smart.I know that they were reanimated people and not actually zombies but still if you die I don't think that you will be intelligent enough to construct a right sentence.

The thing I liked the most was that even if you damaged enough the brain the zombies weren't dying.And that was because they were reanimated and even if you cut their arm the arm would still function on it's own.That thing was brilliant for me and was adding more for the suspense.In a moment like that if you are locked into a cemetery which is overrun by zombies and there is now way you can stop them you should just kill yourself.That was the thing that worked as a turning point for me and made this better than it was and made it a pretty good horror movie.

In the end I should say that this could have been better if they hadn't tried to make it a comedy also and just went with horror only.The movie would have worked way better and would have been way more frightening.They went the right way with the movie but made the horrible mistake and made the zombies say 'BRAINSSS!' non stop.And so this is it.I liked the movie but had some small problems that bugged me a little but I really want to see the next parts of the series.

RATING : 6.5/10

DC Re-Imagined:Cyborg #4

DC Re-Imagined:Cyborg #4

First Encounters Part 4

Cyborg (thoughts) : So it looks like my superhero adventures are going to end. It’s so sad,I just became something meaningful and this stupid robot is going to take the life of me and thousands of people. But if it were only for my life I would let it happen but there are innocent people’s lifes at stake, I can’t let this happen.

As he said those words in his mind he tried shooting at Red Tornado with those ray guns that he was using through the whole fight with Red and those robotic minions. But when the shot got finally near Red Tornado it was blocked. Victor saw that there was an invisible force field around Red Tornado’s body and he just ran out of ideas. But he remembered that most of the times the computer was taking over control.

Computer(talking in Vic’s mind): I can make something out of this.

Cyborg: What? How are you even talking?

Computer: I am an artificial intelligence. Did you forget?

Cyborg: Oh yeah. I am under pressure. It’s not easy to think at moments like this. What can you do?

Computer: Just follow my lead.

Victor let his body under the computer’s control. He could feel the nanites rushing through his blood. It was like a hot stream of water on his skin but this one was in his body. It was hot,a little bit of painful but it had to be done.

As the computer took full control, Victor heard that there were only 45 seconds until self destruction. The computer didn’t have much time to think things through but he had an idea. He went next to the destroyed bodies of the robotic minions and he just touched one part of them. After that he just went backwards. It was like the creation of a robot in fast forward. The nanites were bringing life back to the bodies of the minions.

Victor had full control over them.

Cyborg: How did you do it?

Computer : I just put part of the nanites in their parts,and then just injected through them electricity and put life back into them. Now we can fully control them. Watch!

It looked like Cyborg wasn’t doing almost anything but in his brain there were highly difficult operations going on. He had to go past the defenses that were put around the robotic parts and with that he was learning more for their creation and their creator. He was close to find out if it was this the doing of a human.

The robotic minion of Cyborg was fully operating and they were having just twenty seconds until the explosion. The minion went on almost 350 kilometres per hour,he grabbed the force field and then at the same speed he flew off the building. Outside the building it was full with people and police officers,ambulance and firefighters. The minion was almost at 1000 metres height when the explosion happened. The wave from the explosion hit some skyscraper but the damage wasn’t big.

Everyone was looking up,everyone saw the explosion. It was massive.When Cyborg went out everyone started staring at him. He thought they will take him as a hero,but instead the cops put their guns up and the people that were around started throwing everything they had at him.

Cyborg(surprised): Why are you doing this? I saved you all? I was the hero here?

NYPD: Did you see that explosion? If that was here it would have killed everyone in the neighbourhood. What if that robot didn’t make it? We would have died. But you don’t care about that because you are a superhero,and you can’t die. Now put your hands up and behind your head and get on the ground.

This was a situation that Victor almost definitely didn’t expect. And so did his father who was watching what was happening in front of Archer Tower.

*………………………………………………*…………………………………………….*………………………………………………*………

As Despero was walking through the halls of his ship he opened the door that he needed,the laboratory of Morrow and Ivo. There were five robotic guards around them and in the middle of the room it was a big table for surgeries where they were creating their next masterpiece. Despero thought of the name Amazo while they were considering what to do next.

He was there to tell them what happened with their last creation,Red Tornado who had been just destroyed by their current enemy.

Despero: I am here to tell you that Tornado was destroyed.

T.O Morrow:What? How?

Despero: He put the self-destruction on and it appeared that Cyborg had a plan. He threw him into space with our minions and they both died there. I want this Amazo to be almost on par with me.

Ivo: Yes. He has the ability to copy powers after he examines his enemy.

Despero: Good. When will he be ready?

Ivo: Withing 10 hours he should be ready.

Despero: Work faster. I need him after 3 hours max. As for now release the Warriors and send them to Earth with the objective to save Cyborg from those earthlings.

The gates of the ship opened and thousands of robots came out of it. They were all black and grey. Their eyes were glowing red and were moving really fast. They were all saying three words….

ROBOTS: Contain and Kill!

First Encounters Part 3

News Reporter: WE ARE LIVE FROM ARCHER TOWER! We are here to broadcast to all of you because Mr. William Archer is being attacked by not that common threat…..ROBOTS! Who would’ve expected that robots could attack us. We have seen footage from Metropolis and that Superman of theirs but this is the real thing. Thanks to the brave young man in there Mr. Archer is still alive and….. Ladies and Gentlemen there he is.

As the news reporter said that William Archer (a tall blonde man in a black Armani suit) and Cyborg came out of the building flying from the hit of Red Tornado’s tornado. William Archer was covered by Cyborg’s body that hit a car and broke it. The front left door of the car was broken because of the impact but it looked like Victor didn’t felt a thing. He stood up, left Mr. Archer to the police officers and went as fast as he could inside of the building again.

Cyborg: Mr. Archer you are now in safe hands. I am going inside to clear things out.

As he was on the way to the entry of the building he started thinking about what was happening with him and how were things moving now for him.

Cyborg(thoughts): It feels so unreal. It feels impossible and it is. I am fighting robots and growing guns out of my hands. I am not doing it. It’s like I don’t have control over my body. The computer moves and it dictates my attacks and counter-attacks. It feels like he’s going to take over my mind but it is just so awesome!

*…………………..*………………………..*………………………..*…………………………….*……………………………….*………….

An alien spaceship floating in space. The headquarters of the guy that is controlling T.O Morrow. The place where he stays and operates is like a throne room. There’s a big chair in the middle of the room that is supposed to be him throne or something like that.

T.O Morrow falls to the ground as the robotic guards bring him to their master. Morrow gets up,it can easily be seen that he has bruises on his face and he hasn’t taken a shower for at least one month. He has been crying. As he gets ready to say what he needs to say,the master of the ship gets up and his face is revealed………Despero.

Despero(mockingly): So how is it going doctor? The footage holds clues that your minion isn’t doing well.

The doctor starts crying and gets on his knees and starts talking in a rush.

T.O Morrow: Please! Don’t get in my mind again! I’ll do another one.

Despero grabs the doctor’s hand,picks him up and starts staring at him.

Despero: I thought you promised me that you’ll deliver me Earth’s champion. But for that to happen your android needs to do better than he is doing. You don’t want me to give you another boost,right?

T.O Morrow: Yes,of course not. I will do my best and make another minion of yours.

Despero puts him down and calls the guards.

Despero: From now on you won’t be working alone. Your new colleague will be Professor Ivo. I studied him and I have seen his work. You two can make the creature that will bring me the biggest joy of my life. To take this world of yours as well.

*………………………….*……………………………*………………………………………..*…………………………………………*……..

Cyborg shoots at Red Tornado who is flying around and dodging the blasts. Tornado is a good match but even though the lack of experience of Cyborg he could do it fairly easily. Red Tornado’s abilities were low and he was almost slow as a snail.

Cyborg(thoughts): Why is that guy so silent? He hasn’t said a word since the start of the fight. It looks strange and a bit creepy. He’s an android but even robots talk.

After he finished his sentence in his mind, Red Tornado made a counter attack with one of his tornado attacks and put Victor away. He fell to the ground and started rolling because the blast was pretty strong. And after he went up Red Tornado said his first words.

Red Tornado: Self destruction in process. Range of explosion five kilometres…….

First Encounters Part 2

Silas was watching his son for a while.The light went out and it was for the worse.The lab was nearly destroyed from the rays but it seemed like they didn't affect at all Silas.Victor was standing there,smiling and looking at himself.But after the awkward silence that came after it,Victor got his father back on feet.

Victor:What's wrong?Aren't you happy?

Silas:Of course I am son.You got out of the crazy experiment without a scratch.

Victor:I upgraded myself dad.I can sense every computer in the world.I am a living computer.Can you imagine all of the possibilities that will come.

Silas:But you will never have a normal life.Victor I am still thinking about you and your life after this night.

Victor:Please don't call me Victor anymore.I have always hated the name you and mom chose for me.I think that it's time to start calling myself Cyborg.

Silas went silent again.He couldn't recognize his son.He expected that to happen with the time passing but things were moving on too fast.He was ashamed of him.Before the accident with his mother he wanted to become a scientist but after his mother died he felt his son slipping away.Victor was closing himself more and more with the time and after he went to college he got sick of the idea of a half human/half machine body.

Silas:You are already slipping away from your humanity.

Cyborg:Yeah,yeah we'll talk about it later.Now I have to go and test my powers.

Cyborg hacked into the broken door lock,openned it and left the laboratory.He had heard from the NYC Police briefing that there is a superpowered attack over one of the richest men in New York.The guy was calling himself Red Tornado.Silas was left in the lab.He tried to rethink everything that hapenned but it was too much for him to consume.It was heartbreaking and amazing in the same way.Victor had changed for the worse and he couldn't do a thing about it.

Cyborg arrived at the crime scene.The building was barricaded by the police but they couldn't go inside because of the smaller drones that Tornado had brought with him.

Cyborg:Good day officers!What's hapenning here?

Police Officer:William Archer was attacked by this robot calling himself the Red Tornado.It looks like a kidnapping attempt.

Cyborg:Thanks for the information.I'm going in.

Police Officer 1:Who the hell was that guy?

Police Officer 2:No idea.

As Victor entered the building he saw a real mess.Everything was destroyed and there were dead bodies everywhere.The drones weren't anything special.Just normal robots with enchanced skills.He could examine them in a few seconds,he knew where were their weak points and what he needed to destroy them.

Cyborg(thoughts):Okay,here goes nothing.I just have to grow a pair of ray guns out of my hands......WOW!It sounds stranger than I thought it would.

As he was growing the weapon the drones had spotted him already.They attacked.There were like 15 of them but it looked like they were far more to Victor.

Drones:Save Red Tornado.Kill all threats.

Cyborg reacted quite fast.One layed a hit on him but it wasn't enough to knock him off.He shot for the first time in his life with the gun that he had gowned.It went through one of the drones and zapped two more down the road.Victor felt the confidence coming inside him.The real showdown had just begun.They were all attacking but the computer in his brain was predicting each move and was making Victor's body dodge everything.He felt incredible.He felt like that guy from Metropolis and like a real hero.

Cyborg(thoughts):WOW!This feels fantastic.To know what is going to happen next,predict everything and to able to counter attack.I should've done this earlier.

As he destroyed the last of the drones he called the officers from outside and told them that everything is al;right and they may enter.He saw the secret entrance behind the walls.That was the entrance to Archer's real office.But it was locked from a high-tech safe that wasn't broken.It was strange.

Cyborg(thoughts):This is strange.I thought that the Red Tornado was in.Doesn't matter.Let's open the safe.

As he was breaching in a body fazed through the wall behind him and got ready to attack.It was the Red Tornado.

.............................................................................................................................................................

SOMEWHERE IN SPACE

?(a rough voice,alien):Good job professor!Your anroid is doing quite well!I might spare your life if you find Earth's champion.

T.O Morrow:Yes,please!I can't recognize this one but he looks like a good opponent for you.That Superman guy wasn't that impressive.

?:We'll see.....

Batman #17 - What I think

This is the last issue we get from the Death of the Family and it is supposed to wrap everything up and just give us the big conclusion.Even though that Scott Snyder hasn't been that original in his run on Batman his stories were good and were keeping my attention on the book.It quickly became one of my favorite and after I heard that he will be bringing up the Joker I got really excited and what he was saying was supposed to be epic and with the first issue everything started out in a perfect way.It felt dark,creepy and a little bit of a mystery behind everything.I got really excited with last issue and the silver plate was keeping the suspense on and it got me going through many suggestions.I was ready for the epic conclusion and to see what is the Joker hiding from us and what was he planning and the page where he revealed to Bruce what he did kept me reading with even more joy.

That was the big thing that could actually happen but we soon learnt that it all was a big bluff and the Joker was just joking the whole time.It killed my joy for the issue and I had to say that this was Snyder's weakest issue ever.He disappointed me.All of the big talk and in the end he didn't have the guts to do anything big enough to affect the real Batman readers except the new ones.It was all like a lie and it hurt me down.Even though that I expected that Alfred was all right and I wanted him to be alive I was really disappointed by the fact that he wasn't even hurt.He was just under the Joker Venom and was just acting crazy.

Snyder just killed the respect I had for him by making this issue and the fact that he didn't have the guts to do a big thing with the character of the Joker along the other Bat-relatives was a weak doing and it would have been better if he haven't said all of those big words in the interviews.I at least hope that next arcs shall be better and I will again gain respect for him.

Coming Through

My life was never easy.I was called Teodor Donald King and my life started in the worst way it could have.My mother was taking drugs,my father alcohol.He was beating me and my mother.She deserved it but I couldn't look at her with the bruises on her face.He went to jail three times because of her but every time they didn't have enough evidence to put him in jail for more than a few weeks.And with every time with him going to jail my mother became more and more a sadder person.I think the main problem for that was because when my brother was little he drowned and died.But when one day he came home drunk and hit mother with a gun and then pointed it at her - something in me snapped and I just blew his mind.

With that I got in hail.I was only 14 years old.I stayed there for ten years.It wasn't fun at all.But with the time I started becoming more and more popular and people were afraid of me.They had to.I had changed.I became a sick guy that was only thinking how to kill the guy that he meets next.It became like an instinct to me.I trained.I became strong,fast and versatile.But when I started becoming one of the most respected people there,I had to go out.

I went back home.Nobody could recognize me.That was better.I was walking around on one of my favorite streets in the town.I was excited as hell.But when I arrived at my favorite shop,the movie one,something blew up.I almost died.What I remember next was the hospital.I woke up.Eveything was fine with me.The doctors hadn't even touched me.I was healed.I ran away.

I went to one of my friends.He called himself CPU.He tried to help me,to find out what was going on.So he shot me in the hand.I healed in seconds.It occured that the explosion gave me powers.There were some weird chemicals that got into my blood.I became a guy with healing factor.But one night CPU was killed and I joined the army because of him.Because he wanted me to become something good,something that people would like.

I signed up for the army.I was 24 years old.They learned me everything they could.I memorized it all.I was one of the best.But when we had to go to war finally,I got orders from one of my teammates and I just shot him in the head.The others tried to stop me from killing another guy.I had to go to jail again.But they couldn't keep me there.I ran away.I was 26 years old and was once a soldier,one of the best.I became a killer.I knew that was my purpose in life.

I became the killer for hire King.My new identity.I forgot about Teodor Donald King and started my new life.The life of the killer that I am.So that is waht you should know about me.Now give me the weapons,so I can kill the president.

Joker's Return!

Scott Snyder,the current writer of Batman,has said that he will be doing the return of the Joker and this will be the biggest appearance of the Joker since the New 52.He appeared for a little in the end of Detective Comics #1 where he cut his face off and since then nothing.But now he will be returning to the game and will be attacking every member of the Bat-family.He'll be appearing in the main Batman series where Snyder said will be the biggest story and that you don't have to read the tie-ins to understand the story but this looks good,so we are screwed,we are going to have to see them.

So with all of these cool looking covers that were posted by DC,what do you think?Are you looking forward to this?

TDK Talks about The Expendables 2

The Expendables 2 was a movie that me and my friends were waiting for a long time.I wasn't that excited as one of my friends because the first movie wasn't anything special and I actually didn't like it.But this time it had more action actors than the last time and that was the only reason I went to watch the movie.

The movie wasn't long as expected and that was a good thing because this kind of a movie can't be really long.The whole movie was more comedy than action but when there were fighting scenes everything was okey and looked really awesome.The acting cast was awesome and each actor we all knew.I was just surprised and I wasn't sure who was the sniper 'Billy the Kid' but then my friend told me that it was Liam Hemsworth which was a really good pick.One of the writers of the movie was Sylvester Stallone which was good.The movie had a lot of comedy and basically the jokes were on the cliche phrases of the old movies of actors like Chuck Norris,Arnold Schwarzeneger and others.They were practically done well and you could see the actors actually having fun while in the movie.The effects were good and there were a lot of dead people in this movie and everything was done in an almost perfect way.

Chuck Norris appeared in this movie,I thought he would be for more time than just a few minutes in two scenes but when he appeared it was like all of the jokes in the Internet about him coming true.There wasn't only one joke about him but nearly 2 or 3 which were big ones.That was one of the things that I didn't like about the movie.As much as the first movie sucked for me it was serious and wasn't so funny and it didn't contain jokes on every 5 minutes.This one was like a comedy for me.Chuck Norris was the main guy that had jokes for him and they were funny but they weren't at the right place.

Other thing that made me a bad imression was the location,the main one.It was said that it was in the mountains in Albania but if you listened well to the guys that were supposed to be albanian,they were talking in bulgarian and the whole location was actually the mountains that are near my town(I'm from Bulgaria) and Sofia(our capital).That was like a offense to out country and citizens for me even if they didn't mean it.

THe main actors as in the last movie were Sylvester Stallone,Jason Statham,Arnold Scharzeneger,Bruce Willis and this time Jean-Claude Van Damme.All which are really well known to me and all action fans.They did a good job even though sometimes their lines sucked and sound cliche and Van Damme's accent was really bad.

All though the movie was funny,thrilling and was catching the eye of me and my friends.It was sometimes palin stupide but al though it had interesting moments and made the people laugh.I liked it more than the first one and was happy that I heard bulgarian language in the movie.
