My Thoughts:
This is another movie from the Horror Classics 100 Movie Pack that I recently bought. When I decided to watch this one next I went online to see what I could learn about the movie ahead of time. I am glad I did this as it prepared me for what I was about to see. This is actually a TV Movie that was meant to be a pilot movie for a TV Series that never happen. Because of this it left some things (Actually the main storyline) open at the end of the movie... hampering the enjoyment some. But since I went in expecting this... it didn't bother me as much as it normally does. Though I would have of course liked to seen an ending for the main storyline.  And I will probably not watch this movie often because of this. In this movie you get to see an early role for Kim Cattrall (Samantha on Sex and the City). Though you don't see her till the last half hour of the movie. Over all it is a good story and I did enjoy what I did get to see. Though it is a bit dated as it does have that '70s feel to it. It is a shame the TV Series never came to be. I think it would have made a decent series... at least for a season. The quality of this one kind of surprised me since it is in that 100 movie set... both the picture and sound quality are good.

The Brave One is one of the few Jodie Foster movies of the last 20 years I've not seen.  I'll have to catch it sometime.  I gave it to my dad for a present a year or two ago so there is a handy copy within my grasp.  And I'm glad you reviewed that copy of White Zombie.  I've been bugging you to review it since I sent it to you...now I'll have to find someting else to bug you about!  :P

My Thoughts:
This time I watched on of Brittany's DVDs with her. And this one not only looks great... but it also is a fun story. Beyond that it is hard for me to find words to explain what I think of this one. Sure there is a lot here that is far beyond belief... but hey it is an animated movie. And one I do think is geared more towards the kids then adults. Though I do believe adults will enjoy it as well.

My Thoughts:
This is another one from Brittany's Collection that she wanted me to watch with her. I always been a fan of Scooby-Doo every since I was a kid. But this is one of several of the newer movies I never seen. This one messes with my mind a bit. On the one hand it has to do with Vampires. And I love pretty much anything Vampires. On the other... it takes place at a music festival... and I hate music! So needless to say this is not my favorite Scooby Doo movie. Though it does gain points with the vampire storyline.

But it's Scooby Doo so we all know that the vampires are in fact real estate agents who want to develop the Vampire Rock area as an hotel or a tourist attraction and not vampires :laugh:
