Final Destination 5

In Final Destination 5, Death is just as omnipresent as ever, and is unleashed after one man’s premonition saves a group of coworkers from a terrifying suspension bridge collapse. But this group of unsuspecting souls was never supposed to survive, and, in a terrifying race against time, the ill-fated group frantically tries to discover a way to escape Death’s sinister agenda. — (C) Warner Bros

Scott’s Take – 2 1/2 Stars

Okay, we are at the point where none of these destinations are actually final.  This franchise is a cheaply produced cash cow that will continue to throw the word final around until there is nothing left in the well.  That being said, Final Destination 5 is much better than advertised and definitely deserves a look-see based on the creative death factor alone.  Put this one in your Netflix que, you won’t be disappointed.

Apollo 18

Officially, Apollo 17, launched December 17th, 1972 was the last manned mission to the moon. But a year later, in December of 1973, two American astronauts were sent on a secret mission to the moon funded by the US Department of Defense. What you are about to see is the actual footage which the astronauts captured on that mission. While NASA denies its authenticity, others say it’s the real reason we’ve never gone back to the moon. — (C) Official Site

Scott’s Take – 1 Star

Absolutely dismal “found footage” film that neither scares or offers anything resembling coherent film making.  Stay away from this snooze-fest!!

Next Week

That’s all we have this week.  Next week we ring in the new year with Contagion, Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark, Shark Night, and I Don’t Know How She Does It! Happy New Year everyone!!
