Meeting James Marsters

April 21st was my long-awaited birthday present from my family to see Frost/Nixon with James in it. The show was in a very small theatre (which wasn't even full, unfortunately, though it should have been), and had a very cosy atmosphere. Frost/Nixon was fantastic, and all the cast performed really well. James did a great job as Frost. His accent was very good to my ear, and he only lost it once. Tom Virtue was also wonderful as Nixon. I grew up watching his work on Even Stevens, so to see…

Thoughts on Last Gleaming, Part IV

Another review in the continuing look back at Last Gleaming.

 

 

 

“Blow away the dreams that tear you apart

Blow away the dreams that break your heart

Blow away the lies that leave you nothing but

lost and brokenhearted.”

--Bruce Springsteen, “The Promised Land

In the film Bridge on the River Kwai, with the rain of debris, the hail of bullets, and the mounting dead engulfing him, Colonel Nicholson of the Royal British Army…

Buffy the Vampire Slayer--On Your Own, Part I Thoughts

 

I have to say that while I express some dismay personally on Buffy’s decision I have to say I really, really liked this issue a lot.

I love how in Buffy it is shown how incredibly out of touch the Council is in terms of the relationship that develops between a Watcher and Slayer.. Crowley and Nikki Wood best exemplify to me this bond that the Council has completely tried to squelch. When I read the Buffy moments in the present day, it brought out even more how much of a hole…

Buffy the Vampire Slayer--Last Gleaming, Part 3 Thoughts

First the continuing remembrance of simpler days when we all hated Twilight. 

 

Kurt Vonnegut once wrote a novel called Mother Night which told of an American playwright who was hired to spy for the U.S. as a Nazi sympathizer. He’s successful. Too successful. He’s so good he begins broadcasting Nazi propaganda to rile up support for the Third Reich.

The moral of the story according to Vonnegut: We are what we pretend to be, so we must be careful about what we…

Thoughts on Last Gleaming, Part 2

In one of my favorite moments from the movie The Searchers, the normally demure Laurie watches in lustful glee as her two beaus fistfight over her on the eve of her wedding. Going by Buffy’s fantasies even if Angel has her heart she’d still expect Spike to fight for hers.

I have to say I’m ambivalent about the Spuffy and I think it has to do with some of the weaknesses of Buffy and Spike themselves. I don’t think it was lip service to Buffy and Spike’s relationship. I think…

Thoughts on Last Gleaming, Part I

For nostalgia's sake and a reprieve from Issue #5 of Season Nine here are my old reviews for Last Gleaming of Season Eight starting with numero uno.

 

(Belated to the point of irrelevant) Thoughts on Last Gleaming, Part I

Confession time.

For someone who's been a loyal champion and debatably an eloquent defender of Spuffy, it's all been after the fact reactions. As for my outlooks they've tended toward the bitterly pessimistic. There's a method behind this. I keep…

Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Nine--Freefall, Part IV

Buffy’s transition from the old ways to the new reaches its apex here in battle royale fashion. But first we get a scene that is reflective of a prior moment, but makes it clear that it most definitely is new.



First off, I guess I was wrong about Severin’s origins. His girlfriend actually did become a zompire and he did get energy-suckage powers. Now as far as the actual initiation is concerned, I definitely had a flashback towards William’s fateful meeting with…

Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Nine: Freefall, Part I

 

“Gonna freefall out into nothing.

  Gonna leave this world for awhile.”

---Tom Petty, “Freefallin’”

Either I’m getting older or more curmudgeonly or my recent gray hairs are affecting me more than I’d like to admit, but I just can’t seem to relate with Buffy’s drunken night of the Schnapps’ much.

I’ve known of stuff like this, obviously. When you’ve attended college, how can you not? But I’ve never been in a situation where I had no recollection of what…

Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Nine: Freefall, Part II

Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Nine: Freefall, Part II



The second issue picks up where the last one left. It’s somehow appropriate. As much as it’s kind of surreal that Buffy has to face off against a Debt Collector Demon, it’s still a demon after all and it’s still Buffy. So, of course, Buffy’s gonna kill the demon.

But as is becoming apparent, Buffy is gonna have to rethink some things and her place in them. After all, it may be a demon but it’s just doing its job.…
