The 200th Review: Box Office Purgatory: "The Invasion (2007)"

      Yes, after nearly 2 and a half years and over 400 posts, I have written 200 whole reviews. That's 199 films (X-Men:First Class counts double!) and nearly 350 hours of cinema. And how do I celebrate? By once again introducing a new series that will run for a long time here on Cinema Won (Awfully Direct isn't dead...  mostly). So, now, I proudly introduce Box Office Purgatory! Each week (Give or take) I will look at a notorious box office bomb, many from the list of the 50 biggest bombs of all time (From the "always untrustworthy" Wikipedia). I will give them a review, explain how badly they failed, why I think they failed and if they deserved better. Plus, on the Box Office Purgatory page, I will rank the bombs from best to worst. Now, let's kick things off by not falling asleep!

Television Won: Buffy the Vampire Slayer: "Welcome to Hellmouth/The Harvest"

      Yes, I'm bringing this back. It's not entirely going to replace Cartoons Won. Television Won will be a new whenever-the-hell-I-feel-like-it feature son Cinema Won. Maybe I'll review a special episode of a show, a whole season, a whole series or just talk about weird things on TV like that new ABC Family show where people try to spell words while being electrocuted. To kick things off, I actually use Netflix Instant for what it's for and I'm going to rotate through several TV shows. Starting with Buffy, because Joss Whedon.
