You've Got Mail, a review by addicted2dvd



Title: You've Got Mail
Year: 1998
Director: Nora Ephron
Rating: PG
Length: 119 Min.
Video: Anamorphic Widescreen 1.78:1
Audio: English: Dolby Digital 5.1, Commentary: Dolby Digital Stereo, Music Only: Dolby Digital Stereo
Subtitles: English, French

Stars:
Tom Hanks as Joe Fox
Meg Ryan as Kathleen Kelly

Plot:
You've Got Mail delivers all the wit, charm and warmth you'd expect from a reunion of the stars (Tom Hanks, Meg Ryan) and director (Nora Ephron) of Sleepless In Seattle. Greg Kinnear, Parker Posey, Jean Stapleton and more talented co-stars add perfect support to this valentine to modern – to modem – romance in which superstore book chain magnate Hanks and cozy children's bookshop owner Ryan are anonymous email cyberpals who fall head-over-laptops in love, unaware they are combative business rivals. You've got rare Hollywood magic when You've Got Mail.

My Thoughts:
This is one I haven't watched in quite some time. According to DVD Profiler I haven't watched it in 7 years. This is one that I enjoyed quite a bit. I think both Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan did a great job in this movie. I also got a kick out of seeing Jean Stapleton in something other then All in the Family. The story, while enjoyable, isn't a "ha-ha" type funny. More of a lighthearted look at a budding romance coming from the last place you would expect (for the character that is).

My Rating:
Out of a Possible 5

Bad Dreams, a review by Jimmy




Title : Bad Dreams (1988)

Overview
In the mid-70s, the members of the love cult Unity Fields sought 'the ultimate joining' by dousing themselves with gasoline and committing mass suicide. A young girl blown clear of the fiery explosion was the only survivor. Thirteen years later, Cynthia ('Jennifer Rubin' of 'A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET' 3) awakens from a coma inside a psychiatric hospital with only buried memories of that horrific day. But now, her fellow patients are each being driven to their own violent suicides. Has the sect's hideously burned leader ('Richard Lynch') returned to claim his final child, or is something even more depraved lurking within her BAD DREAMS?

My Impression
An ok movie, but nothing special. The story is too predictable and the acting is weak (except for Bruce Abott but he can do much better and Richard Lynch), Jennifer Rubin is sure a good looking girl but she can't lead a movie, Dean Cameron is anoying like he always is, some things doesn't make sense at all and the cult aspect is deal with too fast.

Not bad per se but less than average.

This is a series where I first thought the premise was run boring pretty fast. Until now I have seen the first three seasons which I enjoyed from beginning to end. This pilot is a good introduction to the series.
