My Thoughts:
This is, of course, the one that started it all. Definitely a classic when it comes to horror. I feel it is a good movie... definitely worth watching... but I have seen better. I really liked the character of Alice in this one. For some reason I keep forgetting there is a young Kevin Bacon in this movie until I watch it again.

My Rating

Stigmata, a review by addicted2dvd



Stigmata
A lost soul has just received the wounds of Christ...and a shocking message that will alter history. Stunning performances from Patricia Arquette (True Romance), Gabriel Byrne (The Usual Suspects) and Jonathan Pryce (Ronin) and a cutting edge score by Billy Corgan of The Smashing Pumpkins and Elia Cmiral make Stigmata "a visual and visceral feast" (Entertainment Today).

Frankie Paige (Arquette) has absolutely no faith in God. All of that changes when she suddenly begins to suffer the Stigmata - the living wounds of the crucified Christ. Frankie's miraculous bleeding comes to the attention of the Vatican's top investigator, Father Kiernan (Byrne). But when Cardinal Houseman (Pryce), discovers that Frankie is actually channeling an extraordinary and provocative message that could destroy the Church, he's convinced that she - and the force possessing her - must be forever silenced. Determined to stop this deadly conspiracy, Kiernan risks his faith - and his life - to save her and the message that will change the destiny of mankind forever.


My Thoughts:
I was looking up at my shelving yesterday when this movie sort of popped out at me. I decided to put it off and go with something else. Then this morning while looking through my shelf for something to watch I spotted this one again. Realizing I have not watched this movie in a very long time (Not since I first bought it). I been putting off watching it again because I am not a very big fan of Religious Horror movies. But I can watch one now and then. But when I pulled it out I noticed this one starred Patricia Arquette (Medium)... who I have become a big fan of over the years. So I just had to watch it. After watching this... I am not sure Religious Horror really fits this movie. It definitely has it's share of blood... that is for sure. But it is more of a suspense thriller then it is horror. I found I really enjoyed the movie. Patricia Arquette was wonderful in it as usual. And the story and imagery was rather fascinating. But at the same time with the style of movie it is... it is not something that I will watch often. But I am sure I will watch again. It is one of those rarely watched treasures in my collection... if that makes any sense.

Pete's Pilots, a review by addicted2dvd



Home Improvement


Pilot
After Jill explicitly tells Tim not to touch the dishwasher, he breaks it in an attempt to make it more powerful; more of a "man's" dishwasher. Jill has a job interview, but she doesn't get it and when Tim tries to comfort her, he only makes matters worse. After talking to Wilson, Tim tries again and succeeds.

My Thoughts:
This has always been a sitcom I enjoyed. Though I do admit that the first episode wasn't as good as many episodes that followed. Some reason I still only have the first season of this show. One of these days I need to continue on this series.
