I find Ben Stiller more miss that hit, but I thought he was ok in this one.

My Thoughts:
I have not seen this movie in close to 30 years! I haven't seen it snce the '80s shortly after it's release. All I remembered is that I enjoyed this one... and I must say... all ths time later and I still loved this film! The downside to this blu-ray disc is that it was released by Mills Creek.... one of the worst... very low budget release. I was actually surprised to see this one has a commentary track with Helen Slater and Yeardly Smith. But at the same time they couldn't even put a menu for scene selection!?! I would love to see a blu-ray release for this one done right!

My Thoughts:
I bought this film blind (never even heard of it before) soley because it stars Kevin James... who I became a fan of every since first seeing him on King of Queens. This is listed as a comedy film... and while there is comedy here... it really isn't that much. I found it more of a serious story about 2 friends. Sure there was some funny moments that put a bit of a smirk of enjoyment on my face... but there was no laugh out loud moments here. I actually thought Queen Latifa's character was the funniest in the entire movie. That being said... I did like the film. It was defintely worth the time put in to watch it.

My Thoughts:
This is the first time I have seen this one in years... probably since it first came out in the '80s. The story holds up well... even if the special effects has not. But then would you really expect them to on a film like this? I found this film to be a lot of fun. I have read reviews putting down the Beta Unit... the robot that stayed on Earth to tak Alex's place. But I enjoyed those scenes as well. This one is well worth the time put in to watch it. This is one I recommend checking out if you never seen it.

My Thoughts:
OK... this is not my usual type of movie. But when I saw this disc super cheap (less then $5) and remembered I somewhat enjoyed the first one that I would give it a chance. First of all not as good as the first one. They just didn't have the talent the first one had... I mean come on... how do you beat Eliza Dushku and Kristen Dunst? But even with that said... I wouldn't call this one terrible. So I would say it was entertaining enough considering what I paid for it... but it isn't something I see watching too often.

Plot:
We’ve always known that Spider-Man’s most important battle has been within himself: the struggle between the ordinary obligations of Peter Parker and the extraordinary responsibilities of Spider-Man. But in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Peter Parker finds that a greater conflict lies ahead.
It’s great to be Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield). For Peter Parker, there’s no feeling quite like swinging between skyscrapers, embracing being the hero, and spending time with Gwen (Emma Stone). But being Spider-Man comes at a price: only Spider-Man can protect his fellow New Yorkers from the formidable villains that threaten the city. With the emergence of Electro (Jamie Foxx), Peter must confront a foe far more powerful than he. And as his old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, Peter comes to realize that all of his enemies have one thing in common: OsCorp

My Thoughts:
I was so excited to see this movie. While I wasn't disappointed... as it is a good movie... it wasn't as good as the first one. Going by the trailer I was a little concerned on how they portrayed Electro. But after seeing the movie I found they did him pretty cool. Not thrilled with the storyline with Gwen Stacy though I do understand how they got there... so I can forgive that. But what I can't forgive is how they portrayed Rhino. I just did not like how they did him at all. But over-all a very good movie... this one is definitely worth every moment put in to watch it.

My Thoughts:
Not all that pleased with this one. It had it's moments here and there... but for the most part it just didn't work for me. I found most the comedy just not funny. That or was something I seen elsewhere more then once, It didn't help that I was never much of a fan of Will Ferrell... of Mark Wahlberg for that matter. But I found it super-cheap so figured I would give it a chance as I thought the basic storyline had promise. Unfortunately it just didn't work. The best I could give this one is average.

My Thoughts:
I remember seeing this one before... and thinking it was only OK. But when I saw the disc at the store I had the urge to watch it again. On second viewing I thought it was great! Normally I find Adam Sandler really hit and miss on his films... this one I find to be a definite hit. Put that along with Kevin James and several others and we have here a really good time! This movie is a lot of fun... well worth the time put in to watch it! Definitely recommend checking it out if you haven't yet.

I now have the urge to walk up to the local Redbox and see if they have the second one I could rent. Though it's not like I don't have plenty here to watch as it is!

Length:144 min.
Rating:R

From a script he co-adapted from the Stephen King novel, director Stanley Kubrick melds vivid performances, menacing settings, dreamlike tracking shots and shock after shock into a milestone of the macabre. In a signature role, Jack Nicholson ("Heeeere’s Johnny!") plays Jack Torrance, who’s come to the elegant, isolated Overlook Hotel as off-season caretaker with his wife (Shelley Duvall) and son (Danny Lloyd). Torrance has never been there before – or has he? The answer lies in a ghostly time warp of madness and murder.

My Thoughts:
What to say about this movie? This film has the honor of being the first ever horror movie I seen. Since then I have become a complete horror fanatic. My all time favorite genre. This film is almost 35 years old now... and I must say it is just as good today as the day it first came out. It has a stellar cast... it has fantastic atmosphere... an outstanding creepy film. I can't think of any way this film could be better. While extremely long at 144 minutes... it doesn't seem like it while watching. This movie grabs your attention for the beginning and holds it to the very end... and seems to be over before you know it. If by some weird chance you never seen this film yet... it is one I cannot recommend any higher... is a must see!

My Thoughts:
Years ago when this film first came out on DVD I tried to watch this one... and just couldn't get into it. After watching it I just felt confused... unsure what I just seen and a bit on the bored side. Since that time I watched the first two Hobbit movies. Getting to know the characters and the storyline much better. Going into this film with more of an understanding of the characters and the storyline I find myself loving this series of films. I now can not wait to watch both The Two Towers and The Return of the King for the very first time ever. Wow... what a difference a little background info has done for me! It gave me a complete turnaround on my opinion of this film. This is a film I will definitely recommend now... but if you are like me and have no previous knowledge of the stories... do yourself a favor and watch The Hobbit films first!

My Thoughts:
I don't really know what to say about this film... I watched it the other day... and don't get me wrong.. I did enjoy the movie... I was just somehow expecting more from it. I guess between the good cast... the good storyline and my hearing lots of good about it had my expectations up higher then it should have been. I went into this one expecting pure comedy... but there is a lot of drama here as well. Which really isn't a bad thing... just not what I was expecting. I may find I enjoy it more on a second viewing since I now know what to expect. But to me... right now... basically just an average movie.

I really enjoyed every minute of this one. It has great action and a fantastic storyline. This over two hour movie went by so fast it seemed like it was over in no time at all! If you never got the chance to see this one I highly recommend it.
