|I just looked at some of the extra bits on the first Monkey DVD; it includes advertisements for other DVDs from the same company. Amongst the many such entries is Blake's 7. They certainly cater to a very 'me' audience. Or rather, don't cater, since the Monkey box-set was cancelled and the Blake's 7 DVD set, which is currently expected to be released in April 2004, was, according to the advertisement, released in Autumn 2002.|
Anyway, I went poking around various DVD-selling sites in an attempt to determine the current Blake's 7 release status, and decided to rate a few things while I was at Amazon, to see what it would recommend today. I was highly amused to be told, upon my rating of five stars for the first Monkey DVD, that I would like The Matrix: Reloaded. Let us compare:
So why is it that I like Monkey and don't like The Matrix: Reloaded?
- Dodgy dialogue: Check.
- Terrible over-acting: Check.
- Shitty special effects: Check.
- Outrageous costumes: Check.
- Characters flying around foolishly: Check.
- Over-explained plot: Check.
- Complete lack of zebras: Check.
It's the theme song.
