My Thoughts:
Stephen King's take on a vampire story. Being a vampire movie alone  gives it a good chance I will enjoy it... and I definitely did. But it is definitely not the best vampire movie I ever seen. Like It did seem a bit weird... the idea of a vampire flying around in an airplane everywhere he goes. There was a couple things did I liked about this movie though... they way they made Dwight Renfield (the vampire) look... as well as the effect the vampire's blood had when he effected the Richard Dees with it. I really liked the use of Black and White in that scene. It really enhanced the spookiness of the scene. There is a couple small extras on this release... I would have liked to seen something more substantial though. This movie did have some decent bloody effects a well.

My Rating:
Out of a Possible 5

Plot:
John Grisham's best seller A Time to Kill hits the screen with incendiary force, directed by Joel Schumacher (The Client). Sandra Bullock, Samuel L. Jackson, Matthew McConaughey and Kevin Spacey play the principals in a murder trial that brings a small Mississippi town's racial tensions to the flashpoint. Amid activist marches, Klan terror, media clamor and brutal riots, an unseasoned but idealistic attorney mounts a stirring courtroom battle for justice. The superb ensemble also includes Brenda Fricker, Oliver Platt, Charles S. Dutton, Ashley Judd, Patrick McGoohan, Chris Cooper and both Donald and Kiefer Sutherland.

Extras:
Scene Access
Trailers

My Thoughts:
I like courtroom dramas where an underdog is tried, and with some cunning moves by his attorney is aquitted. This is such a kind of movie and I liked it.
But I think the drama outside the courtroom has too much focus and is overdramatized in my opinion.

Funny moment: The judge compares Sandra Bullock to Lois Lane. At the moment I thought: Hey, you are right! She would be the perfect Lois Lane!

The Good Old Days TV Thread, a review by addicted2dvd


Monster Squad
Episode 3
The Tickler
Original Air Date: 09/25/1976
The Tickler (Ivor Francis), a man unable to laugh, captures the Monster Squad in his tickle machine...

My Thoughts:
When this originally aired I was only 7 years old. It really is no more then a children's show. I was basically the right age (around 7) when this originally aired. This series really has nothing for the adult who never seen the series before. You would look at this and basically think silly kid show. It would still entertain the 5-8yr old kids I believe... but other then that... this set is good for nothing more then nostalgia. This show lasted one season back in 1976. The very next year the star of the show (Fred Grady) went to the series The Love Boat as Gopher.  This is no more then a silly show where a group of monsters go up against silly ('60s Batman style) super-villains. with the help of the night watchman (who woke them)... trying to show the world that monsters is not something you need to be scared of. This is definitely a show I couldn't watch very often. It is really of no use other then something to laugh at... to laugh at the silly stuff we watched as a little kid.

My Rating: (Would be lower... but gave an extra point for childhood Nostalgia)
