Termination Point – the Never-Ending Movie Review

July 23, 2008

A jumbo jet crashes. No survivors. Yet … among the wreckage, a young farm boy discovers a half-charred boarding pass … and the date on that boarding pass is for … gulp … tomorrow!!

Thus begins this mind-blender of a movie known as Termination Point.Two Lous!

Actor Lou Diamond Phillips stars as a cutting-edge scientist. Proving his brilliance as a scientist, he wears a studious-looking beard, a pair of glasses and … he builds a teleportation machine. With it he can zip anywhere, anytime, and to any point in time. All he has to do is power up his machine with neon light bulbs and type in some coordinates on his cell-phone and—zip! Through a wormhole he goes!

Unfortunately, teleportation has a few side-effects:

1) A mismatching of people, places, and things from alternate universes.

2) A planet-eating vortex that seems to enjoy floating in the sky, zapping stuff into oblivion. Mainly it attacks buildings. But it’ll also go after people if they try running away. And it’ll keep on zapping until there’s nothing left. (Hence the title Termination Point, that theoretical point at which we all meet some sort of universal termination.)

3) Rogue agents. They’ll stop at nothing to get their hands on Lou Diamond’s technology. (*hint, hint* gunfights galore!)skywingairlines

To get away from it all, Lou somehow bypasses airport security, smuggling his teleportation time machine onto Sky Wing Airlines, on a flight to Mexico.

But will he escape his problems?

Before seeing this movie, I highly recommend re-reading this review to find out what could possibly happen next!

Ghouls – a movie of ghoulish mystery

July 15, 2008

Ghoul_Morphology

Ghouls are on the loose in a sunny village in Romania!

They look a bit like flying charcoal smudges. But when they come down to attack—brace yourselves!—they morph into bloody-faced, raggedy-limbed mummies!

One hero (whose name is Thomas) has devoted his life to stopping them. As a descendant of Druid warriors, Thomas is armed with a family heirloom (a dagger which he sometimes stares at whenever he needs cheering up) and a trench coat lined with flash grenades and a shotgun full of flash cartridges. A blinding flash does wonders against a ghoul attacking in broad daylight.

So what is a ghoul anyhow? Dictionaries will say that it’s either a grave robber … or someone who delights in stuff that a grave robber would enjoy … or it’s a bloodthirsty demon from Muslim folklore.

In  the movie Ghouls, these creatures are actually the ghosts of ancient robed beings mysteriously known only as The Ancients. They have a queen ghoul. And they have magic powers. And a black stone—the size and shape of an ostrich egg—brimming with even more magic powers! They even have a whole group of human followers! Ghoul sympathizers! Spies!Family Keepsake

Yet, no matter how tough things get, we can always do what our hero Thomas does. Find something we like, and stick with it. Even if it means watching this movie!
