Possums The Nowata High School football team hasn't won a game in 25 years. They haven't scored a touchdown in 13 years. But when the town decides to cancel the Possums football program, local radio sports announcer Will Clark is left devastated.
With the team gone and the football field about to be dozed under, Will breaks into the radio station and starts announcing imaginary Possums games -- Only this time the team's winning. Although the town initially laughs at Will, they can't help but be swept up by Possums magic as Will announces the team all the way to an imaginary state championship.
But when the real state champions challenge the fictitious Nowata team to a game, Will has only two weeks to recruit and train the Possums' team. Can Will's rag-tag, thrown together team possibly be good enough to hold together the town's new sense of hope and pride?
Mac Davis stars in this feel good story about a team facing an impossible task with an indomitable spirit. And about the town that gets behind them and learns a few important things about itself.
My Thoughts: This is one of the many DVDs I got very cheap when the video store I used to manage closed. That was a good 4 or 5 years ago now. And this is the first time I got around to watching this movie. Probably because I am not a big sports fan. It is something I can watch once in a while when I am in the mood... but that mood does not come very often. That is probably why going into this movie I had very low hopes of enjoying it. And it is probably a good thing I did. It really is no more then an average movie. But at the same time I was able to get into it before it was over. It is definitely a different type of football movie. And shows there is more to the game then winning.
Goosebumps: It Came From Beneath the Sink, a review by addicted2dvd
Goosebumps: It Came From Beneath the Sink IT CAME FROM BENEATH THE SINK Kat finds a strange sponge under the kitchen sink at her new house, a sponge that has eyes and fangs, that makes bad, unlucky things happen whenever it's around. When Kat, Daniel, and Daniel's friend Carlos get rid of the sponge, they learn from research that whoever finds the sponge and gets rid of it, will die...
STRAINED PEAS Nicholas has a new baby sister, Grace. But one day she makes a message that says "only me" with her blocks and Nicholas realizes that Grace is no normal baby. She wants to be an only child and she'll do anything to get rid of him...
Brittany's Thoughts: I personally got a kick out of both episodes. In "It Came From Beneath the Sink", all of the bad luck and stuff was cool, and I liked the ending with the vampire potato, but I really got a kick out of the little bedroom she made for it. "Strained Peas" was cool too with the killer baby, only it lost me at the end when both babies were that weird, especially showing the first baby's parents. It just lost me.
My Thoughts: This disc contained 2 fun episodes... I enjoyed them both... but I have to admit I personally enjoyed "Strained Peas" a bit more... it was fun seeing the baby doing all that weird stuff and try to get rid of her older brother. The first episode was good too... but I thought that the look of the sponge was a bit over the top. I did get a kick out of the vampire potato though.
Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles: The Complete First Season marathon, a review by DJ Doena
Synopsis: While the others are asleep Cameron checks for possible threats and she finds a huge shipment of the alloy the Terminators are made of. It's protected by another Terminator but John wants to steal the alloy and destroy it.
My Opinion: I liked it that John took charge even if it was dangerous. But apart from that not much has actually happened.
Synopsis: Andy - the man who had built the Turk - build yet another machine. It's a chess machine and he's competing in an computer chess tournament to win a government contract with the military. But someone kills Andy - it's the missing resistance fighter.
My Opinion: For some reason I expected the whole time that Cameron would challenge one of the chess computers. I know that they have to stay undercover and she's a machine and has no emotions, but still, something in her eyes made me expecting it. I still don't know what to think about the "FBI Terminator" / "Cromartie" yet because I have no idea what kind of plot they have for him in future episodes.
Dungeons and Dragons
Synopsis: Derek Reese, the resitsance fighter and brother of Kyle Reese, will die if his wounds aren't treated. John contacts Sarah's former fiancÚ from eight years ago because he is a paramedic. And while he tries to save Derek and learns the truth, Derek has dreams about his past (or future, depending on the point of view).
My Opinion: This was basically the introduction episode for Derek and since they've put that much effort in explaining his background I believe he'll stay for a while. I like him, he seems like the right type to be a resistance fighter. And with every episode I like Cameron more.
Disc 2 - My Opinion: Either I have become more lenient or they didn't make as many mistakes as in the previous episodes. I also think the addition of Derek and Charley could be interesting. But that depends on how long they will stay.
