I did a forum search if I'd written a review - could've sworn I did
It might have been in one of the comic book threads, where the comic (Nikopol Trilogy) the story originates from was discussed.

Anchorman - started off slowly but got funnier. An alright comedy.

So you've seen the happy ending?

Yup...although, even as a happy ending, it was pretty damn bleak.

SPOILERS:

Spoiler:
The main character, having just stabbed her best friend in the leg, makes a run for it. She gets out of the cave, through the alternate cave opening they had all theorized, throughout the film, MUST exist. She makes a mad dash for the cars, hops into the vehicle she arrived in, and is gasping for breath, amazed to have made it. She leans out of the car, when she pulls herself back in again, the friend she killed is on the other seat, staring at her and showing physical signs of damage. The main character screams, credits roll.

It's a "happy" ending, because she managed to be the only one to escape the cave creatures...although she's scarred psychologically, probably for life. But she gets to live.

The original ending, which I saw on YouTube, has all of the above, but when she screams, she's back in the cave again. It was all nothing more than a hallucination of false hope. She sees a birthday cake in front of her, which was an image seen throughout the movie...when it started, her daughter and husband had died on the daughter's birthday. She looks up from the cake, to see her dead daughter smiling at her, from the other side of the cake. She suggests they blow out the candles together....

Then, the camera switches perspectives, and we see that the "cake" is just a makeshift campfire/torch. She's staring at it dreamily, as the camera begins to drift upwards, and as we get further from her, we can see the creatures are above her, surrounding her, waiting to swoop in and eat the last survivor. As the screen fades to black, you can hear the creatures making their snarling, hissing sounds...

Bleak? Oh, YEAH. But made for a much more effective ending, I think. Reminded me of the hallucinations at the end of Session 9, hope they have both endings on the dvd....

Haven't seen those "motherf**kin' snakes! on this motherf**kin' PLANE!" yet, but I did see a movie yesterday that made me wish MST3K were still on the air...Pulse.

OMG.

Easily the most unintentionally hilarious movie of the summer. I was laughing a LOT during the film, and the scene with Brad Dourif should earn him a Razzie for Best Cameo, lol.

I recently saw all four Killer Tomatoes movies.

Attack of the Killer Tomatoes was funny in a campy, low-budget way. It was clearly made as a comedy, and worked well.

Return of the Killer Tomatoes was a bit different, but quite good. Still funny, but a bit more over the top with many self-referential jokes and asides. I actually prefer this to the original. George Clooney appears in this one, as does John Astin.

Killer Tomatoes Strike Back was awful. The tomatoes had faces and voices, which never quite seemed right. The storyline was dull and simplistic, and the jokes fell flat. The only thing worth watching in this was the return of John Astin. Even then, his performance was much less entertaining than in the prior film. A real disappointment.

Killer Tomatoes Eat France was slightly better than the third in the series. The setting, story, and comedy were a bit more inventive, but overall it was much the same. I suppose it is worth watching if you're curious and have nothing better to do with the small portion of your life that will pass by while watching it. Or if you want to know what happened to the actor who played Skippy on "Family Ties".

Yeah, that's why I posted it to the "Recent movies seen" thread.

It is everything you would expect.

Oh, don't get me wrong...I was definitely entertained...just not scared or able to suspend disbelief. The whole "red tape" thing still has me scratching my head...(you'll understand when you see it.) I'm just weird that way, I love really bad films!

RE: Killer Tomatoes movies

My favorite was the second one. The fight scene with the product endorsements was classic, as well as the whole, "Nobody say ANYTHING" scene before it, lol.

I have never seen the Killer Tomatoe movies..... I do love a scary movie, one that makes me just out of my skin.... I thought pulse was going to be that scary movie for me. What about Silent Hill any thoughts on that one?

Most people here love it, but I don't. Out of recent scary movies, The Descent is pretty good. It'll definitely make you feel uneasy if not exactly scare you.

I liked 2 things about Silent Hill:

1) The town itself was eerie

2) The ending of the movie kind of surprised me, in the way it tried to evoke a "Twilight Zone"/WTF?? moment...didn't see it coming from a mile away...

Really? But horror movies almost regularly have a twist at the ending and I think this one was pretty obvious.
