But all in all it was an okay movie to watch at christmas when you're not too attached to the movie anyway because you're spending time with your family.

Chuck (the Hero...obviously) goes after the Terror, who snaps the neck of every woman he ever meets. This would've been a decent movie if the killer had an IQ above 50 (he doesn't talk the entire film) and wasn't played by the guy who wanted to beat up Shooter at the end of Happy Gilmore. "You can count...on me meeting you in the parking lot!!" Gets me every time!

And the smart companions have been replaced by a bumbling moron, a little girl, and Barbara, who does absolutely nothing.It's a remake of the second story of the original series, and even though it has a bigger budget, it's actually not that much of an improvement. Sure the pace is better in the movie as the hour and twenty minute runtime is much better than the three hour length of the show. But, the suspense scenes oddly played better in the show because the show took time to focus on the little details. The escape plan in the show actually had me on the edge of my seat (in spite of being shot in fuzzy black and white video and set on cardboard sets), whereas the movie seemed to speed it up in all the wrong places. Cushing is actually pretty good as "Doctor Who", and has more of a devilishness about him than William Hartnell (who hadn't grown into the role yet). And the improved special effects definitely help. There's a really cool trap that the Daleks set for the Thals, that is basically just a series of lights, but the reveal has a nice grandeur that the show just couldn't afford.There are some really funny changes though, my favourite being the character who sacrifices himself in the cave. In the tv show, the guy cuts his rope while dangling over a chasm and falls to his death. In the movie he cuts his rope while dangling over a chasm and falls...onto a ledge just below him?!? I guess they wanted the movie to be super kid friendly (which is funny considering how much kids loved the show). But regardless, the story is still pretty neat, and the Daleks are fun villains (it's that voice).

This movie has some of the greatest musical numbers of all time, but far and away the best part of the movie is the legs. I wish I could spend the whole review talking about legs, but I can't.This movie is the first backstage musical of consequence. It has a slow paced plot leading up to 3 show stopping (in fact show ending) numbers. I am not going to pretend that the plot is complex or that the characters are groundbreaking. They are both just vehicles for the musical numbers and legs. I will say that they are both very good. The characters are likable and easy to empathize with. The plot keeps you interested. As a vehicle they are as good as they can be. If plots and characters are too good in a vehicle they overshadow the important parts of the movie, in fact taking away from them. The next paragraph will be about the bulk of the movie and the rest of the review will be about the musical numbers.This is a very observational film about 1930's America (without the great depression, even though it is expressly mentioned). There is one shot in particular where Dorothy calls Mr Denning, and he picks up the phone. He puts the receiver to his ear while he is still half asleep. When he finds out what is going on he jumps up to the microphone to have a proper conversation. That was the most realistic phone conversation on film until Tony Soprano said, "I'm still here." Now would be an appropriate time to discuss the racism of this film. It is defended by the fact that it was observational. Many Africans were forced to take service positions, and they Bo Jangled it up or more tips. Also the performance of the train attendant was great.The musical numbers were a brilliant mix of choreography and cinematography. Many are familiar with Busby Berkly's work, but, in my opinion, his later work borders on the ridiculous. This is the movie where it is just enough spectacle not to be silly. I think that this movie could be remade, and made better with steadicam. The final number is what sparked my recent interest in tap dancing. I have to admit that I did not understand the rape scene. This number is easily the best number in the film. The only thing it lacked...LEGS!
