I think the thing I took from this film is -- and this is a line from the film -- 'life is an adventure'.

When's the last time you saw 2010: Year We Make Contact? what'd you think of it?
Saw 2010 probably in the mid 90's. Thought it was OK, but nearly as good as 2001.

DEATH WEEKEND (1976) AKA HOUSE BY THE LAKE. Brenda Vacarro is driving with a new boyfriend (who turns out to be a total douche) to his country home with a group of local rowdies start to harass them. She is able to turn the tables on them, not setting well and said rowdies find the house and the nightmare begins.
Pretty nasty Home invasion/Rape/Revenge film has elements of STRAW DOGS and LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT, with some I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE foreshadowing. The invaders (led by Don Stroud who's pretty good) are about as vile as You could imagine and once Brenda begins delivering payback, it gets quite suspenseful. Not great and certainly not flattering (pretty much all the characters here are either brutish or stupid), but worth a look.
Interestingly, found out on IMDB that after all this onscreen turmoil, Brenda and Don dated for a few years! **1/2

Family Guy should make a parody of that scene.

Cool The Hills Have Eyes 2

I just looked back at this one from the original series that Wes Craven directed, and it is even more amazing than I remembered it, in my opinion. It begins with the surviving boy seeing a shrink about his racing team traveling through the deserts to get across the country to compete in the races on the other side for the first time he will have been out that way since most of his family was killed by the cannibalistic family out that way. The shrink reminds him of how he saw that cannibal family get killed, and how they are no longer out there, plus if they stick with the main roads, they should be all right. It also turns out the girl who was originally with that cannibal family before she killed off the father with a rattlesnake is now with his racing team, and the big dog, Beast, also returns to take the trip across country. On the way across country, somebody discovers a short cut on the map to get to those races a lot quicker, which turns out to be on the same back roads from the first movie, then their bus breaks down out near the same area where the incidents in the first movie occurred. There turns out to be some overall clever and slick traps set by Pluto and his brother, who turn out to be still alive, along with a lot of well done blood and gore make up and props. The stunt work and staged combat is also well done overall. There is also plenty of humorous and catchy dialogue keeping the film entertaining, along with holding interest all the way through. Pluto also gets even better developed in this sequel than he was in the original film. Those who enjoyed the first film, along with the original "Texas Chainsaw Massacre," and the like should enjoy this sequel as well.

I'm surprised they haven't. I mixed that scene with Ben teaching Luke the lightsaber on the Falcon for my radio show. I thought I was pretty funny.
