Serving Sara, a review by addicted2dvd



Serving Sara
Matthew Perry and Elizabeth Hurley make an irresistable screen team in this "sexy, zany and over-the-top road movie that breaks all the rules"!**

Perry stars as Joe Tyler, a process server who will do anything it takes to deliver legal documents to unsuspecting victims. But nothing in Joe's bag of tricks prepares him for Sara (Hurley), the stunning, soon-to-be ex-wife of a playboy cattle baron named Gordon Moore (Bruce Campbell). When Joe serves Sara with Gordon's divorce papers, Sara presents an offer Joe can't refuse: serve Gordon with Sara's papers first... and earn a cool million dollars!

Pursued by Joe's greedy boss (Cederic the Entertainer) and bumbling office rival (Vincent Pastore), Joe and Sara begin a wildly funny journey to find Gordon... and discover that nothing heats up romance like riches and revenge.


Stars:
Matthew Perry
Elizabeth Hurley
Vincent Pastore
Bruce Campbell
Cedric the Entertainer

My Thoughts:
This movie is a lot of fun. I have watched it a few times since I bought it several years back... and it is always good for a few laughs. Where Joe pretends to be a vet and has to put his arm up the back side of the bull definitely springs to mind here. And gotta love the way Sara got that free motel room. Just wish the camera would have shown us what that guy got to see! All the stars did a fine job in this one... and Elizabeth Hurley looked as awesome as ever. It is definitely worth the time to see this one.

My Rating:
Out of a Possible 5

The Men Who Stare at Goats, a review by RossRoy


The Men Who Stare at Goats
WHAT THEY SAY
In this comedic look at real life evetns that are almost too bizarre to believe, reporter Bob Wilton (Ewan McGregor) teams up with Lyn Cassidy (George Clooney) and discovers an experimental top-secret wing of the U.S. military. Here soldiers are trained to change the ways wars are fought through New Age psychic powers by passing through walls, reading the enemy's thoughts and even killing a goat by simply staring at it.

Inspired by Jon Ronson's non-fiction best-seller of the same name, this is an eye-opening and hilarious story of the government's attempts to harness soldier's paranormal abilities in order to combat its enemies.

MY THOUGHTS
I really liked this movie! It's not an out and out comedy. It is really absurd at times, and it does have moments of laugh out loud moments.

All four main actors are really great in their role. I particularly loved Kevin Spacey.. but I do have a "soft spot" for him. I like him in pretty much anything he's done.

Angel Marathon, a review by DJ Doena


Disc 2

Fredless
Synopsis: After Fred's parents have found her in Angel's hotel, she runs head over heels. Angel and her parents - who are oblivious to supernatural phenomena - try to find Fred. And of course they cross path with monsters.

My Opinion: Finally Fred has come out of her self-imprisonment, it couldn't have gone on like this. And I seriously liked the attitude of the parents.

Billy
Synopsis: The man who Angel freed from the demon prison is at large and he uses his evil powers. Both Angel and Cordelia feel obliged to stop him.

My Opinion: That was quick. It's good that Lilah shot the bastard but that shortens the list of possible Angel enemies.

Offspring
Synopsis: Darla is very advanced in her pregnancy and she makes an impact at Angel's hotel. Neither Darla, nor Angel nor Wolfram & Hart (who of course learn of her pregnancy) know how it's possible that a vampire becomes pregnant. And Angel's friends are very disappointed that he lied to them.

My Opinion: Cordelia has gotten her maternal instincts in the very wrong moment. I didn't understand her behaviour from the beginning. Hopefully this story with his son and the vampire hunter is a longer arc.

Quickening
Synopsis: Darla has gone into labour and the gang gets her into a normal hospital. But several different groups have an elaborated interest in getting their hands on both Darla and the child, among them W&H, a vampire cult and the vampire hunter Holtz, who has been ressurected by a demon.

My Opinion: Chosen children never had an easy life, we've seen this on "Xena", on "Star Wars" and it will be no different here. Holtz is obviously stronger than normal men but I get the suspicion that their struggle won't last long because Holtz won't stop hunting Darla/Angel and Angel won't hide from Holtz. I supect that the main plot of the next episodes will be to protect the child. This episode was a good appetizer for that.
