Sharktopus vs Whalewolf - This was certainly bad, but it was more fun bad than some of the Asylum ridiculous monster movies. It helps that Casper Van Dien is a decent leading man and he is clearly having fun. In fact there are parts later in the movie that are downright Looney Tunes slapstick. While the CGI is bad, there is more of the creatures, and they don't recycle the same effects shot over and over and over again like in some of their movies. They are also smart to not hold off on the creatures, this isn't exactly Jaws. We get a Sharktopus scene a minute in. There is a subplot with a Voodoo priest of some kind that is completely pointless and takes up way too much screentime. It should have been cut entirely.

GAME #178


This was obviously inspired by Grand Theft Auto IV which had just been released a couple of weeks earlier.  GTA IV had been a big topic on one of the message boards I was a lurker on. This was around the time developer Joe Sitt was threatening to destroy half of Coney Island ( Bloomberg having already passed rezoning and removal of park designation  guidelines that destroyed the other half. ) One of the Coney Island message forums was active with activists trying to save the storied amusement area from being turned into a row of condos and upscale retail stores designed to draw upscale tourists to the beach, and drive off the poor and middle class tourists who were considered by the city to be riffraff. ( sorry to go off on a tangent about Coney Island, but I just saw a movie yesterday that was filmed there while this was all going on,  and it reminded me about those years. ) One of the hot topics on the forum was GTA IV because Firefly Island was molded after Coney Island, and it had a lot of the same buildings and rides that still existed. So there was a lot of interest in seeing GTA IV and comparing Firefly Island to the real thing. Also, my friend with the PlayStation bought the game, and it immediately became one of my favorites. And if that didn't put the game on my radar, it became a recurring bit on Late Night with Conan Obrien ( see below ). This was just about the best resolution screen cap I could find at the time. Not really suitable for a Where Is Ronald game, but I was determined to do one with a GTA IV theme.

Through 4 of 20 episodes of "Medical Police". Starts as a typical episode of "Childrens Hospital" and then it veers off into the new directions. Enjoying it, but not sure how much I would if I wasn't already a fan of "Childrens" and would recommend it over this.

I never caught Children's Hospital (though I've heard great things about it), but I loved Medical Police .
