Buffy the Vampire Slayer - Reaction

Not as bad as I expected. It felt 80s, though it was made in 1992. Buffy is a valley girl who makes the transition to being a conscientious slayer unreasonably fast (i.e., no character development). Although it had some good dialog, generally the movie is all camp with little going for it and little substance; for instance, it had much less plot than a typical episode of the television show.

The Squid and the Whale - Reaction

Emotionally poignant yet inconclusive movie about a family going through a divorce. Intensely detailed with resonant dialog; the characters feel real and come alive. Good integration of Pink Floyd and other musical selections.
