Silent Hill (2006)
on Monday, November 5, 2012
With Silent Hill: Revelation 3D currently in theaters, Cecil takes a look back at the first film, and explains in great detail why it's one of his all-time favorites.
[Note from Cecil: This was a
departure from my usual format, and a very difficult episode to make for a
few reasons, one of which being the hurricane. I decided to focus on
the facts of the film and did very little comedy. The Silent Hill
franchise is one of my most favorite things on the planet, so I wanted to
give it special treatment. Hope you enjoy.]
DC’s Convergence re-relaunch: The bottom 5
“Here are the five books I think DC is going to struggle with. Quite a few of them I actually want to see succeed, but even I’ll admit they have an uphill battle ahead of them.”Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children (2005)
“Once I made up a drinking game based around this movie. One of the rules was that you took a drink every time Cloud looked moody. Alcohol poisoning usually set in around the thirty-minute mark.”Double Dragon (1994)
Loosely based on the arcade game of the same name, Double Dragon stars Party of Five's Scott Wolf and future Iron Chef host Mark Dacascos as two interracial brothers living in post-apocalyptic Los Angeles in the far-flung year of 2007. With the help of Alyssa Milano, they protect one-half of an ancient Chinese talisman from falling into the hands of crime lord Robert Patrick, who will stop at nothing to reassemble the medallion and gain absolute power.DOA: Dead or Alive (2006)
Based on the video game of the same name, it's a film with a risky concept: Gather four hot women (Holly Valance, Devon Aoki, Sarah Carter, Jaime Pressly), put them in as little clothes as possible, and have them fight each other! Luckily for Cecil, the concept works, making for one of the best video game adaptations ever.Poltergeist (1982): Still scary, but for different reasons
“The movie also made me think about how much I would sacrifice for my own child, and the feelings of hopelessness that would arise from not being able to do everything I want for my family.”Mortal Kombat (1995)
Mortal Kombaaaaaaat! Cecil reviews one of the best examples of how to do a video game movie the right way.
