Coyote Ugly, a review by DJ Doena


February, 19th


Piper Perabo    ...    Violet Sanford
Adam Garcia   ...    Kevin O'Donnell
John Goodman   ...    Bill
Maria Bello   ...    Lil
Izabella Miko   ...    Cammie
Tyra Banks   ...    Zoe
Bridget Moynahan   ...    Rachel
Melanie Lynskey   ...    Gloria
LeAnn Rimes    ...    Herself

Synopsis: Violet goes from New Jersey to New York City to become a songwriter. She goes to every music agency but nobody wants to listen to her songs unless she sings them herself in an open song contest. The problem is that she's to scared to sing in public. To survive in the big city she needs a job and soon she finds herself being a "Coyote", a bar girl in the hottest bar in town: The "Coyote Ugly". And she finds a boyfriend who'd give anything to see her on stage. But will one of her songs ever be published?

My Opinion: It's a funny romantic movie with a great soundtrack. LeAnn Rimes sang all the songs when Violet was singing and I really liked it. But sometimes I wished one could hear those songs a bit louder that were not sung by her. I have both soundtrack CDs (and am listening to them as I write this) and it's great music.
And I find stage fright to be a concept totally alien to me. I know I can't sing and still have no problem doing it before an audience. :D When I sing I'm happy and the world around me turns into a blur. :)

Monsters vs. Aliens, a review by Dragonfire


I still love animated movies and I'll usually see most of them at least once.  I do tend to like the Pixar and Disney movies more than some others, but I do think that Dreamworks has been getting better.

A meteorite lands on Earth, specifically on Susan Murphy, just before her wedding.  During the ceremony. Susan starts to grow until she is 50 feet tall.  The government, lead by General W.R. Monger arrives and takes Susan away.  She ends up in a special top secret facility where monsters captured by the government are being held and her name is changed to Ginormica.  When the alien Gallaxhar starts an invasion on Earth, Monger convinces the government to send in the monsters to deal with the threat. 

This movie is in 3D in some theaters.  The theater here doesn't do that, so I saw the normal 2D version.  I think it would be entertaining to see the 3D version though.

The plot is definitely a nod to the old monster movies.  The monsters are interesting and they all have some unique abilities that they use, or try to use, in dealing with the Gallaxhar threat.  The plot isn't that complicated, but it is very entertaining.  There are things in it aimed at kids and other things aimed at adults without anything being too suggestive.  The movie isn't as silly as some other animated movies and I think adults can enjoy it just as much as children.  There are a few scenes that might scare or upset young children, but overall, it is a very family friendly movie.  The humor works well and only a few of the jokes are gross.

The animation is very well done.  I think this is the first time that Dreamworks has come close to the quality of Pixar with the animation, though what they have just managed to do - mainly with the animation of hair - is something that Pixar has been doing for years.

Overall, this is a really entertaining animated movie that deserves to be seen.

I did get a review posted on Epinions if anyone wants to take a look.

Grey's Anatomy Marathon, a review by addicted2dvd


Grey's Anatomy Marathon
Season 3:

They are doctors, lovers and friends. Join the staff of Seattle Grace Hospital as they learn there are no easy cures for life's challenges and that each choice comes in shades of grey.

Main Cast:
Ellen Pompeo as Dr. Meredith Grey
Sandra Oh as Dr. Cristina Yang
Katherine Heigl as Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens
Justin Chambers as Dr. Alex Karev
T. R. Knight as Dr. George O'Malley
Chandra Wilson as Dr. Miranda Bailey
James Pickens, Jr. as Dr. Richard Webber
Isaiah Washington as Dr. Preston Burke
Patrick Dempsey as Dr. Derek Shepherd
Kate Walsh as Dr. Angela Sheperd
Sara Ramirez as Dr. Callie Torres
Eric Dane as Dr. Mark Sloan



1. Time Has Come Today
Izzie faces life after Denny with the help of Meredith and Cristina. George and Derek are quarantined together after operating on a dangerously contagious patient. Alex searches for the mother of an abandoned infant, while Richard's wife makes an appointment with him in order to deliver an ultimatum. The interns reminisce about the first time they met.

My Thoughts:
This is a great episode. I enjoyed every minute of it. It starts up right where season 2 left off. Izzie is a wreck. Meredith is trying to figure out what happened that night means. George has to figure out if he loves callie. And along with all of this a plegue threat. I also liked all the flashbacks that showed how they all first met... even before the pilot episode of the series.

My Rating:

2. I Am A Tree
Three unique patients have unforeseen effects on the interns. Cristina has an awkward first meeting with Burke's family. A pair of panties on the lost-and-found board leads to trouble for George and Callie. Derek makes an important decision on his future, but Meredith is having trouble making a decision of her own.

My Thoughts:
Another good episode. I was really interested in the medical care in this episode where the teen boy got impaled on a tree branch. Unfortunately they didn't spend too much time on the case. Instead they opted to stick with the doctor's personal lives. Which I normally don't care for... but I am really into the stories right now.

My Rating:

3. Sometimes A Fantasy
Meredith finds that juggling two suitors is not as easy as she thought. Izzie heads to Seattle Grace to ask for a second chance. Cristina takes action when she thinks that Burke has given up. George is having second thoughts about his relationship with Callie, and Alex treats a young girl who believes that she is a superhero.

My Thoughts:
Another good episode. I really liked the case of the little girl who don't have the ability to feel pain. So what does she think? she is some kind of superhero and keeps it to herself. Except to show off a little for other kids. Ending up being seriously hurt internally without realizing it. Izzie is scared of the idea of asking for another chance.

My Rating:

4. What I Am
Izzie gets a visit and surprise gift from Denny's father. Meredith faces an emergency appendectomy and has a heart-to-heart talk with Addison while under the influence of morphine. Mark Sloan joins the Seattle Grace staff, and Derek is not happy about it. Burke is cleared to return to work but is hiding a potentially disastrous secret. Meredith finally makes her choice between Derek and Finn, her dog's veterinarian

My Thoughts:
Another good episode... though this one for the most part is all personal life.  Though they do touch on a couple decent medical cases... not only Meredith with appendicitis... but also a man that actually thought it would be a good idea to light a cigarette in the hospital room... while wearing his oxygen. Smart man... huh? The ending on this one has me a little up in the air... not sure if I like it or not.
