Weekend Movie Marathon
Anything Goes

The Dr. Phibes films are two good Vincent Price's movies, the first half of Full Metal Jacket is the best thing Kubrick had ever done and maybe you will like The Great American Snuff Film but be warn this is really violent and hard to watch.

Pete, I'd have said Black Hawk down and Full Metal Jacket, but with your other unwatched war film genres perhaps you may do that as a more specialised marathon in the future?

That is what I was thinking... have a specific war marathon one weekend before too long. But we will see what happens.

Since you don't like musical in general, I suppose Sondheim would be especially hard to stomach.

Starz: On-Demand
- Rachel Getting Married (Anne Hathaway)
That was one of the best movies (if not the best) of 2008 with an outstanding performance by Hathaway. I posted a review for it.

FEARnet:
- Bug (Ashley Judd)
Great horror chamber piece by Friedkin. But we might have different expectations when it comes to horror.

As far as I remember both, but most of it is spoken in English. It is a British movie, not an Indian like you would first expect.

I used to have a copy of Burn After Reading but never got around to watching it the brief time I had it (I wound up giving it to my brother).  I recall it got good reviews and it is a brother by the talented Coen brothers who also did such favorites as Fargo, O Brother Where Art Thou?, Raising Arizona and others.

HBO on Demand
I saw Burn After Reading..I liked it, but it is ...different.  I know people that hated it too.  I do think it is worth watching at least once.

I love Sweeney Todd.  It is a great horror story, though there is a lot of music and singing.  I think it is worth trying to watch it...but I don't feel about musicals like you do.

Cinemax On-Demand

Title: House of Bones
Year: 2010
Director: Jeffery Scott Lando
Rating: NR
Length: 90 Min.
Video: Widescreen
Audio: English
Subtitles: N/A

Stars:
Charisma Carpenter
Corin Nemic
Rick Robinson, Jr.

Plot:
Members of a reality TV show investigate a supposedly haunted house that may prove to be the death of them.

My Thoughts:
This is the first SyFy Original Movie I get to see of 2010 (the first made?).  Charisima Carpenter stars in this movie was the main reason I wanted to see this one. I went into this one not expecting much at all as the SyFy movies tend to be a bit on the cheesy side. The movie is better then I was expecting it to be. Sure some of the effects were cheesy... there was some predictable stuff in it. But I definitely enjoyed it. Charisma Carpenter plays a psychic that joins one of those shows where they go off investigating supposedly haunted houses called Sinister Sites. On her very first episode they end up in the "real thing". Even though this movie is pretty predictable... I still enjoyed this one. And I hope to add this movie to my DVD collection if/when it is ever released.

My Rating:
Out of a Possible 5
