Default Re: Mask Of The Phantasm Appreciation Thread

BTAS has some of the best scripting on any tv show in the last fifteen years...
But Phantasm is not their best movie.

I won't go as far to say its bad, but so much of the excellent premise is IMMEDIATELY bogged down in very lengthy flashback sequences, which are interspersed randomly through the film and are too long, so the film actually feels like two stitched together. They really should have handled these better, since the one story (modern day) is really the more interesting/exciting one, while the flashbacks, while providing some key information, are VERY slow.

It just slowed the pacing down a lot. Still beats the awful Sub-zero hands down.

Is Mystery of the Batwoman any good?
