I really liked that movie too! For me it was a good horror! And a few buddys of mine said too that the movie was "just fun to watch" and not that much gore. But personally i would say its a good mix. :) I think its more disgusting stuff in this movie than in alot of other horror movies ;)
A movie i would def watch again :)

My Thoughts:
Decided to watch this one this morning. It has been sitting in my unwatched pile since this past September. I had planned to watch it for last year's October horror marathon but never got to it at the time. It's not a bad movie... but I have definitely seen better. The story is not all that original and I did find it a bit on the slow side. But it was worth what I paid... especially since I got my copy used for a cheap $1.64. Other then the people listed above this one also has  another face I am familiar with. Aaron Ashmore is in this film... I know him previously from Smallville... where he played Jimmy Olsen.

Felt like watching some comedy today. Going into this one I wasn't expecting much of anything. The trailer looked like it could go either way. While I have seen better baseball comedies before.... I found I still enjoyed this one quite a bit. Sure it gets a little silly at times. But I found myself laughing at it more then once. They went a bit over the top with the nerds and geeks thing. Over-all it is a fun watch... I can easily see myself watching it again sometime.

My Thoughts:
I am a big fan of the TV series 21 Jump Street... It is a show I watched every week with my family when I was a teen. And there really wasn't many shows that the family would watch together. So needles to say the series holds a special place in my heart.  So going into this movie... I wasn't expecting much out of it. Matter of fact... I was expecting to hate it. Just going by past experience of other movies based on TV series.

I was surprised when I found that I enjoyed this movie. Maybe it is because I had such low expectations. But one thing that definitely helped... they didn't just remake the series with the same characters... it is more like a continuation of the series. Where they are re-opening the Jump Street program. It was cool to see Holly Robinson Peete with a cameo appearance as her 21 Jump Street character... Officer Judy Hoffs. Other old Jump Street characters that made an appearance is Tom Hansen and Doug Penhall... now partners at the DEA. They were under cover and in disguises... but I am almost positive it wasn't Johnny Depp and Peter DeLuise reprising their roles. Whoever they were... they were not credited in the credits.

Anyway... found it to be a fun movie. It has a few laughs in it. I can easily see myself watching it again. I am surprised to say that I definitely recommend this one.

I remember reading something that said Depp was going to do a cameo in the movie.

I rewatched the scene this morning... looking at it again... that very well could be Depp. Though I am not sure enough to add him to profiler as an uncredited. And I would be surprised if it is DeLuise with him... but possible since I haven't seen him in years.

I just looked on IMDB... not that I trust them all that much for this... but according to them that was indeed both Johnny Depp and Peter DeLuise. It also says Richard Grieco appeared as Booker as well... but I don't remember seeing him or his character at all in the movie.

     Superman vs The Elite (2012/United States)

Comprised of four powerful beings and spearheaded by the brash and calculating Manchester Black, this new force brings a raw, no-holds-barred mentality to the battle against evil.

Featuring a stellar voice cast headed by George Newbern, Pauley Perrette and Robin Atkin Downes, this epic DC Comics Premiere Movie adventure explodes with a clash of styles and super powers that begs the question: which will break first – The Man of Steel or his code?

My Thoughts:
I am always happy when I see a new animated superhero movie released. While I enjoyed this one... it isn't one that will rank up there with my favorites. The storyline is good... but not thrilling. I really can't put my finger on it... but there is something about the animation that didn't impress me as much as they usually do. It seems something was just off about it. This isn't a good sign... but the highlight of this film for me was the fact that Lois Lane was voiced by Pauley Perrette who plays my favorite character on NCIS. But even with all this said, I didn't hate this film. I guess I would say just slightly disappointed in it.

  • Scene Access


My Thoughts:
Felt like a natural disaster movie this morning. This is in a 4 movie set (2 of which is about 3hrs long) that cost me about $5.00.... which means it is about $1.25 per movie. So at that price I really can't complain too much. Supernova is an almost 3hr TV movie that originally aired on the Hallmark Channel. Not that this is a bad movie... I did enjoy it for what it is. It is just that there was a lot of slow parts. Not surprising with a 3hr movie.... but there is plenty here that could have been taken out to make a more exciting story. I did like the one side storyline that they had going... where we learn earlier on one of the scientist's wife was brutally attacked... the attacker now in jail... but swearing to get revenge. This attacker escapes and comes after the wife and their daughter. The main storyline... while interesting... definitely could have been better. I think it could have had a better conclusion as well as shortened some. But it isn't bad for a lazy day of TV watching... just don't expect too much from it.

It has been years since I seen the first movie (Analyze This)... and this is the first time I ever seen this movie. But not seeing the first one in so long didn't hurt my enjoyment of this one at all. I enjoyed this movie... found it to be pretty fun. But I believe I remember liking the first part more. I at least didn't find it as funny as I expected to. But it was definitely worth the hour and a half I put into watching it.

My Thoughts:
I just finished watching this movie. Going into it I must admit that I was a little concerned as I never read the comics. I only ever seen the previous movies and some of the animated series from a few years back. So most of the mutants in this movie I wasn't familiar with. And it was right strange for me to see Professor X both young and with hair as well as walking. I was also surprised at the type of relationship Professor X shared with Mystique. Though obviously I don't know if that is the way it was in the comics as well or not. So going strictly by what I know from the previous movies and somewhat on the animated series I found I really enjoyed this... (what is this btw, a prequel? a reboot of the films? I guess that depends on how well this film did) I found I really enjoyed this film. It has a good story that kept my interest... some fun new mutants to watch... as well as some good action. I would recommend this film.

I think it was meant as a prequel. At least I don't thinkit was meant at a reboot. Most occurences seem to fit with the universe set up in the other films.

The relationship between Charles and Mystique in this movie is not from the comics.  Mystique's back story is changed a lot.  My theory is that they decided to put her in this movie because she was popular in the other movies - probably because she was walking around basically naked most of the time. 
The original first X-Men team isn't here.  The relationship between Charles and Eric has been changed a bit too...as well as Eric's backstory.  And I don't think Sebastian Shaw and Emma Frost were around that far back in the comics..not when the school and everything was first forming.  They were members of the Hellfire Club, and there are missing members.  I think there is something with Emma's abilities that was tweaked or something too....

Ohhh...If you saw Wolverine, there at the end when he helps break kids out of that facility, there is a young Emma Frost there..and that is years after the events in First Class.  So. I think that raises issues if all the X-Men movies - including Wolverine - are supposed to be connected.  That has Emma aging backwards.

I did like the movie overall, but some of the big ...changes to things did irk me a bit...and I'm not even that familiar with the comics.  I know all this just from things I've read over the years.

My Thoughts:
I felt like watching the sequel... but before doing so I wanted to re-watch the original film as it has been a good 3 or 4 years since I seen it last and really didn't remember too much about it. Only really remembered that I enjoyed it. Sure... this movie wasn't perfect... but what it was... it was a whole lot of fun and it looked awesome! And I think that is what I liked the most about this movie. While I did like the story... the effects were just great and a whole lot of fun to watch. It is funny... when it comes to Nicholas Cage... I either like him in something or I just hate him. I don't know why. When I first heard he was doing this I thought well there goes any chance of this movie being any good. But I was really wrong... I found I liked him a lot in this role. I also really enjoyed Sam Elliot in his role.

My Thoughts:
This is my first chance of watching this film. It is one I was excited to see since I enjoyed the first one so much. I was maybe even a little too excited to see it.... hoping that I wasn't expecting too much and setting myself up for disappointment. I found that I enjoyed this one quite a bit. I think I enjoyed it just as much as the first part. The first one is a little longer then this one. But this one didn't need to be as long... it didn't have to tell the origin story. While I have heard some people say this one wasn't as good as the first part.... I also heard (even more) people say if you liked the first one... you will like this one as well. And those are the people I find myself agreeing with. I am blanking out on his name already... but I liked the character that could make anything (or anyone) decay with a simple touch. I am not familiar with the comics... so not sure if he is a character from them... but I wouldn't be surprised if he is.

Over-all... I have to recommend this one. Especially if you enjoyed the first one.
