Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Buffy the Vampire Slayer ★★★

100-word review: What's up with the tone of this movie? Dictionary definition of 'all over the place' — doesn't know whether it wants to be a 86-minute camp horror-comedy excuse to lust after braless Kristy Swanson being put in evocative situations, positions, and poses, or a fun family-friendly teenage flick. An interesting entry in Joss Whedon's back catalogue that's too random to be boring, but also to be good. That one-armed vampire's death scene? That Hogs' basketball team coach? Those super uncanny fight scenes? Buffy the Vampire Slayer surely has its share of 'memorable' moments, but at what cost?
