Day of the Dead 2: Contagium

All I can say is... Wow too! I can not believe this movie somehow had rights to using the name Day of the Dead and was allowed to try to pass itself off as a sequel to the Romero masterpiece!

The first five minutes of the movie seemed promising enough, then we were treated approx. an hour of B quality acting with horrible characters, no zombies, no seemingly relevant storyline and no sort of action whatsoever. They try to make up for lost hour of our life by cramming some "gore" into the last twenty minutes of the film but it's far too little too late.

Terrible acting, characters, storyline, plot, direction, lack of zombies and some seriously low budget gore make me wonder how this particular film got itself in any way attached to the franchise Romero made legendary.

D-

On the whole,I've seen worse horror films, but if you're going to be naming yourself Day of the Dead 2, you should at least attempt to live up to at least one standard Romero set.








The Santa Clause 2

Meh. Not horrible. Not great. Not as good as the first one, but still a pretty decent sequel.

Now I disagree with that. It doesn' even come CLOSE to the first one for me. But to each his own.

Personally, I think Jaws is one of the most overrated films of all time. Havent bothered to see the sequels, but the first was boring as hell until the last like 10-15 min. The shark didnt look realistic at all, and the plot was pretty contrived. In my opinion, that is, but to each their own...
