Now, the only way back to Earth is to take command of the ship and control of their destinies, before time – and oxygen – runs out!

My Thoughts:
Decided to check this one out today. It is a part of my friends collection... and one I haven't seen since it was originally released on VHS. I remembered enjoying it quite a bit at the time... and time has not changed this opinion. This film easily kept my intrest from beginning to end. If you never seen this film I definitely recomend it. Hope to add it to my own collection.

 :tv:  I've seen this a couple times...the first time might've been in the theatre.  I have always liked it, not surprising since I like both Kate Capshaw and Lea Thompson.  I think John Williams, my favorite film composer, may have provided the music for this also.  :thumbup:

I just watched Abbott & Costello in Little Giant. In this one Costello plays a country hick that gets a job selling vacuum cleaners. This one is pretty good... but far from the best Abbott & Costello film I have seen. It has a few good laughs in it... but not so much that I could recommend this one all that strongly. I would say average at best.

I picked this one up at the library today. I have always liked the old Herbie movies... and ths one is no different. Sure it isn't something that will go down in cinema history... but it is a whole lot of fun. And lets face it... sometimes that is all you need from a film. I think my favorite scene of the movie has to be Herbie in the demolition derby. This is one film I hope to add to my collection before too long.

I just finished watching this one. It is one of the few well known '80s films that I never seen. And this one is really filled with well known stars. The one that surprised me... I would have never recognized him if they didn't say it in the trailer... is Anthony Michael Hall. I loved him in the TV series The Dead Zone. Anyway... I enjoyed every minute of this one. If you never seen this movie I haighly recommend it! I got this one from the library... so I am hoping I will be able to add it to my collection before too long!

My Thoughts:
This is another one I borrowed from the library. The first thing I did was watch the trailer for the film. Going by the trailer... I must admit I was a little concerned if I would like this one or not. But it didn't take long at all for me to get into the story. Before I knew it I was enjoying it quite a bit. Now compared to the other X-Men films... I must say this one is probably my least favorite. But don't take that wrong... this one is still well worth the time put in to watch it. I just prefer the others a little more. But this is one I hope to add to my collection before too long.

My Thoughts:
This is the first time I ever seen this film... but I am a fan of the old TV series even though I haven't seen the series since I was a kid. Since I haven't seen the series in so many years I really can't accurately compare the film to the series. But what I can say is I had a lot of fun watching this film. There is a lot of great action and a few decent laughs along the way as well. I would recommend checking this one out. It is great for a couple hours of mindless fun!

My Thoughts:
I picked this one up used at a convience store a couple months ago. I picked it up cheap.. less then a dollar. Other then the Olsen Twins... this one also has Jared Padalecki (Supernatural). To be honest with you... when I picked this one up I really wasn't expecting too much from it. Then when I watched the trailer I saw some potential... but still didn't expect too much. After watching it I can say it had it's moments... but for the most part I have to say below average. Kinda the Olsen Twin's answer to Ferris Bueller's Day Off. As little as I paid for it... I really can't complain. But it isn't one I could recommend. Best I would say is if you are bored one day and can see this one for free.... well then there is worse things you can watch. But there is also plenty of better things that could be watched as well.

I am over here trying to decide if I want to keep the above movie in my collection.... or if I want to trade it in. I am just not sure... I may or may not ever want to watch it again. And on the plus side... it does have some cast members in it that I like. And I do like collecting the works of certain actors and actresses.

Last night we all got together over here and watched their copy of Iron Man 3. This is the first time I got to see this one... and like the others I enjoyed it very much. Great film... lots of fun to watch. However... I will say this third one is definitely my least favorite of the three. I just didn't care much for a couple of directions the story took. Still well worth the time put in to watch it... a must see if you are a fan of the first 2 films.

     Benny & Joon (1993/United States)
IMDb |Wikipedia |Trailer |
MGM Home Entertainment
Director:Jeremiah Chechik
Writing:Barry Berman (Screenwriter), Barry Berman (Story By), Leslie McNeil (Story By)
Length:98 min.
Rating:Rated PG : Theme, a Scene of Mild Sensuality and One Use of Harsh Language
Video:Anamorphic Widescreen 1.85:1
Audio:English: Dolby Digital: Dolby Surround, French: Dolby Digital: Dolby Surround, Spanish: Dolby Digital: Mono, Commentary: Dolby Digital: 2-Channel Stereo
Subtitles:French, Spanish

Stars:
Johnny Depp as Sam
Mary Stuart Masterson as Joon
Aidan Quinn as Benny
Julianne Moore as Ruthie
Oliver Platt as Eric
CCH Pounder as Dr. Garvey

Plot:
Johnny Depp (Sleepy Hollow), Mary Stuart Masterson (Bed of Roses) and Aidan Quinn (Practical Magic) star in this wonderfully unique and delightfully offbeat romantic comedy.

Joon (Masterson) is a little unbalanced. Sometimes, without warning, her sweet nature gives way to odd behavior - including a penchant for setting fires! She lives with her older brother Benny (Quinn), who has spent his life taking care of her since their parents died. One night, while playing a poker game with unusual stakes, Joon loses her hand...and wins Sam (Depp), a whimsical misfit who soon charms his way into Joon's heart. Now if they can only find the perfect mate for her overprotective brother...

With charm, humor and an outstanding supporting cast that includes Oliver Platt (A Time to Kill) and Julianne Moore (Hannibal), Benny & Joon is the perfect movie for everyone.

Extras:
  • Scene Access
  • Audio Commentary
  • Feature Trailers
  • Deleted Scenes
  • Featurettes
  • Music Videos
  • Closed Captioned


My Thoughts:
I got this one used cheap. It is one I have seen before... but it has been so many years ago... it is like seeing it again for the first time. But going into it I did remember enjoying it the first time I seen it... which is about the only thing I remembered about it. The main reason I picked this one up is because I have been a Johnny Depp fan since his days on the TV series 21 Jump Street. I must say... this film lived up to my memory. I enjoyed every moment. In my opinion Johnny Depp stole the film. His character was a lot of fun. I would so get along with a person like his character. Some may say he is strange... but to me he just looks like a lot of fun. But this is more then just a funny film. It is also a very sweet love story. If you haven't had the chance to see this one yet I definitely recommend it.
