Jimmy I can see your point... I don't think any of my DVDs are worth more then a couple of £ except maybe for my Twin Peaks, Dragonball z movies and maybe my copy of Jurassic Park 3... I don't sell DVDs or Games because I for some reason I always want what I can't have ¬_¬ the only DVD I have ever sold was Enemy of the State...2 months later I bought it back (the same copy.)

I've some that worth quite a lot of money

I could easilly sell it for more than 100 $US since my copy is like a new released.
But even if I don't watch it, I just can't sell it...

My Thoughts:
Felt like a comedy this morning... so pulled this one out. It is one I haven't watched in a while. It is a fun movie... though it is not the best of it's kind out there. It is pretty silly at times. Though I must say I did like the girl that played Jim Carrey's girlfriend. An actress named Karen Kopins... checking my profiler I don't have much with her in it. Just an episode of Full house and an episode of the original Knight Rider. Lauren Hutton was of course good as well. And I like that while still doing his thing... in this one Jim Carey did go too nuts on the screen.

My Thoughts:
This is the third time I watched this movie since I bought it. I bought it on the suggestion of a friend. But the first time I watched it I just couldn't get into it. It bored me to the point that I dosed off more then once trying to watch it. My friend then convinced me to give it another try. The second time I watched it I actually found myself enjoying it. It has been quite a while since I watched it... so thought I would pop it in today. While it is not really a bad movie... it will never be a favorite of mine. Just something different to watch every few years.

My Thoughts:
I couldn't have a vampire weekend and not watch one of those extremely low budget films from the Mortuary of Madness 50 movie boxset I bought. And with a name like Vampire Whores from Outer Space... believe me I went into it expecting nothing at all... well maybe just expecting something to laugh at... at the most. But I couldn't even really say that. This movie looked like it was made on a home video camera... with poor acting and effects. And don't even get me started on the space alien pimp. Just a guy in a green alien head mask. Then there was the sick abortion parts that didn't even need to be in the movie as it added nothing to the story. Not sick as in disgusting to look at... but sick as in very bad taste. If there was anything in this movie that actually looked decent it was the fangs on the vampires... they looked pretty good. But I think the most entertaining thing about this movie is the title itself.

Somewhere deep in the South American rain forest, an elite commando team led by lifelong friends Hawk (Casper Van Dien of STARSHIP TROOPERS) and Grieves (Kevin Grevioux of UNDERWORLD) are attacked by a brutal superhuman force: A flesh-ripping, blood-guzzling clan that hunts in packs, strikes in daylight, and won't stay dead. The U.S. military calls them 'a tribal anomaly,' but are they actually a horrific race of pre-Incan vampires? Six months later, Hawk must return to the jungle on a deadly new mission, this time to rescue his tough-but-beautiful scientist ex-wife (Jennifer O'Dell of THE LOST WORLD) and destroy his best friend, who may now be leading a tactical assault squad of immortal bloodsuckers out of their caves and into our world.

My Thoughts:
This movie I have a bit of mixed feelings on. It is a bit of a low-budget horror... but a decent one. As most know... I love vampire movies. A lot of vampire movies play with the legend a bit... and this one certainly does that. In this case the biggest change they made was that the Vampires can come out in the sunlight without any problems. Which kinda sucks... but I can deal with that.

The movie kinda reminds me of Dog Soldiers... but with vampires instead of werewolves. Only problem is this movie isn't even close to being as good as Dog Soldiers. Not that this is a bad movie... because I really did enjoy it. It just could have been better, IMO. Where Dog Soldiers I found to be an excellent film.

Being a fan of superhero movies/shows.. I really liked the fact that this one has Lynda Carter (Wonder Woman) in it. I have all 3 seasons of Wonder Woman on DVD... not to mention I was very hooked on her when I was a kid. So it was fun for me to see what she looks like now. I was really surprised when I first saw her... for a woman that is close to 60... she still is very attractive.
