a better poet than swordsman

It's basically All About Eve with less clever repartee. And bared genitals.
I love the fact that its listed as Terminator, Dark Fat in the cinemas. Couldn't quite fit the whole title on the boards...Terminator: Dark Fate.
Was so-so. Nowhere near as good as T1 and T2, but arguably better written than some of the more recent Terminator movies.
A bit of trivia. The actor who played the great uncle was W. Morgan Shepard who had a couple of recurring roles in the Star Trek franchise and Babylon 5. A very good character actor. His son went on to play the lawyer in the Battlestar Galactica reboot.Elvira: Mistress of the Dark (1988)
The noted horror host's feature film debut. There is a plot, of sorts -- Elvira inherits a house, a dog, and a "cookbook" that is really a book of magic spells from a deceased great-aunt (played by Cassandra Peterson herself, with red hair, in flashback) -- but it's really just an excuse for slapstick, corny wisecracks, and some pretty raunchy sex jokes. The film's antagonist -- a great-uncle who wants the book for himself -- hams it up, but in a serious rather than campy way, so that's a nice change from everybody else acting like Borscht Belt comics. Very silly, lowbrow stuff.
