My Thoughts:
My daughter gave me this one yesterday evening out of her collection. And this morning I felt like popping it in. I just recently watched Emma Roberts in the film Nancy Drew... and thought she did a fine job in it even though I didn't care for how they did the character in that film. So I went in looking forward to seeing the young star in another film. This is only the third film I have with her in it (the final being Scre4m). I found this one to be a very cute and entertaining movie. Sure it isn't realistic in the least... but it is a fun family film. I enjoyed every moment of it.

I couldn't get into this one myself, just found it missed the mark - even for kids. I do think Roberts is going to be one to watch for in the future though. She was great in British film 4.3.2.1. She's in the upcoming We're the Millers which also looks like it could be silly fun.

My Thoughts:
This is my second time watching this film... first time on Blu-ray. The first time I watched the movie was when I got the DVD from Netflix  couple years back. This is a right good romantic comedy... I definitely enjoyed it. Even though I seen the ending coming a mile a way. But watching them get to that point was entertaining. I really enjoyed both Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston in this film. I also liked seeing Nicole Kidman in it as well... though she is only in the scenes when they are in Hawaii. This one is worth the time put in to watch it. I am glad I finally got to add this one to my collection. Recommended.

My Thoughts:
While talking with a friend of mine today she mentioned watching this film today. Which in turn got me in the mood to watch it again. Once again I enjoyed this one quite a bit. I really liked the time travel aspect in this story... as it gave us a good look at a young Agent K. There is also plenty of laughs in this one as well. I was sorry to see that Rip Torn did not return for the third movie. I liked him in the first two... and while Emma Thompson was fine as the new head of MIB... I preferred Rip Ton's character. I definitely recommend this one.. especially if you liked the first two.

My Thoughts:
This one arrived in the mail today... figured I will go ahead and check it out. I had a bit of a problem getting drawn into this film. I definitely seen better. I mean I found it entertaining to a point. I was easily able to get through it till the end. I even checked out some of the extras on the disc. But in the end I found the film to be average at best.

I think you found more to like about Jennifer's Body than I did.  At least I found it on HBO, so I didn't have to specifically pay for it.

My Thoughts:
I woke up this morning and found myself in the mood for this film. Don't even know what brought it to mind. I haven't watched it in 4 years! And doubt I thought of it even once in that time. I always found this to be a fun film for the whole family. I thought both Anne Hathaway and Julie Andrews did a fine job here. It is a sweet and entertaining film... if you haven't seen this one I would recommend giving it a chance.

     Brian Keene's Ghoul (2012/United States)
IMDb |
Image Entertainment
Director:Gregory M. Wilson
Writing:William M. Miller (Screenwriter)
Length:81 min.
Rating:NR
Video:Anamorphic Widescreen 1.78:1
Audio:English: Dolby Digital: 5.1
Subtitles:English

Stars:
Stephen Alderfer as Injured Miner
Tim Bell as Martin Kreider / Ghoul
Jacob Bila as Doug Keiser
Sean Braud as Miner
Chelsea Bruland as Deb Lentz
Barry Corbin as Grandfather

Plot:
Something ghastly haunts Golgotha Cemetery – an entity of unspeakable evil…and insatiable hunger. It is the summer of 1984, a time that should be full of lazy, carefree days for 12-year-old Timmy (Modern Family’s Nolan Gould) and his two best friends, Doug and Barry. But when a teenaged couple goes missing among the gravestones of the local cemetery, the bloodcurdling legend of a horrific ghoul begins to seem more like reality than myth. As the body count rises, Timmy and his friends are forced to confront their worst fears when they unearth long-buried secrets and unleash not only their personal demons…but also the one lurking underground! Based on the novel by Brian Keene comes GHOUL, a tale of terror about the convergence of monstrous inhumanity and a ravenous, inhuman monster.

Extras:
  • Scene Access
  • Featurettes
  • Closed Captioned


My Thoughts:
This is a film I borrowed from the library. It is a TV Movie that originally aired on the Chiller Channel. Which unfortunately our cable company doesn't carry. Though I have asked several times over the last few years. There was things I liked about this one... and things I didn't. In some ways it reminded me of the film Goonies. The whole exploring underground tunnels and such. That is one of the things I did like about it. Something I didn't care too much for is they tried to put in too many side storylines. I realize why... wanting to show that all the kids has their personal problems... but it was just too much to fit into an hour and a half film. Over-all I would say it is worth checking out. But nothing to get excited about.

     I See You.com (2006/United States)
IMDb |Wikipedia |Trailer |
Warner Home Video
Director:Eric Steven Stahl
Writing:Sean McLain (Writer), Eric Steven Stahl (Writer)
Length:93 min.
Rating:NR
Video:Anamorphic Widescreen 1.85:1
Audio:English: Dolby Digital: 5.1
Subtitles:English, Spanish

Stars:
Beau Bridges as Harvey Bellinger
Rosanna Arquette as Lydia Ann Layton
Mathew Botuchis as Colby Allen
Shiri Appleby as Randi Sommers
Dan Castellaneta as Jim Orr
Baelyn Neff as Audrey Bellinger

Plot:
Before YouTube...before MySpace...before Facebook there was I-SEE-YOU.com and Colby Allen (Mathew Botuchis), the teen who invented user-generated content by secretly installing nanny-cams in his parents' home and turning his family into the internet's first Live Feed! reality show.

Pocketing a cool $17K a week, Colby convinces his parents (Beau Bridges and Rosanna Arquette) that dysfunction sells. Something else sells, too: the vid stream of Colby's 18-year old stepsister Audrey (Baelyn Neff), whose unwitting on-cam display of assets launches his enterprise in a big way. Nothing good on TV? Log on. The Belingers are just getting started.

Extras:
  • Scene Access
  • Feature Trailers
  • Bonus Trailers
  • Deleted Scenes
  • Featurettes


My Thoughts:
This one was in a box of DVDs that was given to me a while back ago. And another one I had mixed feelings about. It definitely had it's moments. But I didn't find it to be as funny as I was expecting it to be. I did enjoy seeing Shiri Appleby in this film, think this may have been the first thing I seen her in since Roswell. Over-all I would say worth checking out once.... not sure I would recommend buying.
