I think you may be a little surprised by what I am watching... Britt thought it would be a good idea for me to watch Arachnophobia.  :bag: :P

Several good choices there, but Total Recall is one of my favorite sci-fi movies, so that's my recommendation!   :2cents:

And that is another one I haven't watched in a long time! Unfortunately... I already started Arachnophobia.

Plot:
Hollywood Pictures and Amblin Entertainment deliver an electrifying big-screen rollercoaster ride of a movie! Everyone is afraid of something…for Dr. Ross Jennings, his phobia is downright embarrassing. But when he moves his family to a small town, the one thing that bugs him most is now harming the townspeople at an alarming rate. For this unlikely hero, overcoming a childhood fear of spiders might just save the community, but it may already be too late! Directed by Frank Marshall (Executive Producer – Back To The Future, Producer – Raiders Of The Lost Ark) and also starring John Goodman, this critically acclaimed, breathtaking hit entertains with its terrific mix of thrills, chills and laughter!

My Thoughts:
This is an enjoyable movie... but one I can only watch but so often... because of my own bad case of arachnophobia. Watching this movie (or any involving spiders) makes my skin crawl.  This movie has a couple faces I am familiar with. First we see Julian Sands... who I know from the first couple Warlock movies. Then for comic relief we have John Goodman who was Dan on Roseanne. I wouldn't say this is the best horror movie I ever seen... probably not even the best movie about spiders. But I do enjoy it... I would say it is an above average movie.

Title: The People Under the Stairs
Year: 1991
Director: Wes Craven
Rating: R
Length: 102 Min.
Video: Anamorphic Widescreen 1.85:1
Audio: English: Dolby Digital: Dolby Surround, Spanish: Dolby Digital: Mono
Subtitles: English, French, Spanish

Stars:
Brandon Adams
Everett McGill
Wendy Robie
A. J. Langer
Ving Rhames
Sean Whalen

Plot:
Wes Craven, the director of The Serpent and the Rainbow and Shocker, locks you inside the most terrifying house on the street. Trapped inside a fortified home owned by a mysterious couple, a young boy is suddenly thrust into a nightmare.

The boy quickly learns the true nature of the house's homicidal inhabitants and the secret creatures hidden deep within the house.

Stunning visuals highlight this inventive film that the San Francisco Chronicle calls, "Wes Craven's most satisfying movie."

Extras:
Scene Access

My Thoughts:
This is the first time I watched this movie in quite a while... a good 7 years according to DVD Profiler.  This is a bit of a weird movie, I grant you... but it is one that I enjoyed quite a bit. The couple in this movie is so over the top it isn't even funny. But it is entertaining to say the least. I really liked the kid that played the 13yr old boy nicknamed Fool that takes on this strange and sadistic couple to save his family... and then going back to save the other kids he met that the couple has trapped in the house. This is not what I would call a gory movie... but some of the things seen here is a bit on the bloody side. Not to mention things a little hard to look at... like "Daddy" in full leather fetish gear trying to hunt down Fool. Over-all it is a movie I enjoyed quite a bit. Glad I finally got around to watching it again.

My Thoughts:
I enjoyed this movie... but not nearly as much as the first one. I would say... that in my opinion this one is just an average horror movie. Worth the time putting into it... but not something I would recommend seeking out. Maybe grab it if you find it in a bargain bin type thing. I did like that this one has Anthony Edwards... who I used to watch all the time on the TV Series ER.

Title: Robin Hood: Men in Tights
Year: 1993
Director: Mel Brooks
Rating: PG-13
Length: 104 Min.
Video: Anamorphic Widescreen 1.85:1
Audio: English: Dolby Digital: Dolby Surround, French: Dolby Digital: Dolby Surround, Spanish: Dolby Digital: Dolby Surround
Subtitles: English, Spanish

Stars:
Cary Elwes
Richard Lewis
Roger Rees
Amy Yasbeck
Mark Blankfield
Dave Chappelle

Plot:
Mel Brooks scores a bull's-eye with this hysterical reinvention of the Robin Hood fable! In days of olde, when men were men, men wore tights. And none wore tights mightier–or tighter–than Robin Hood! Aided by his band of merry men, Robin of Loxley wrested power from the evil Prince John, brought humiliation upon the despicable Sheriff of Rottingham and found the key to the fair Maid Marian's heart–and her chastity belt. Starring Cary Elwes as the dashing defender of the downtrodden, the hilarious supporting cast includes Tracey Ullman as the sorceress Latrine, Richard Lewis as Prince John, Dom DeLuise as mob boss Don Giovanni and Mel Brooks himself as Rabbi Tuckman.

My Thoughts:
This is the first time I ever seen this movie. But I wasn't concerned a bit going in as I always have enjoyed the Mel Brooks movies I have seen... as I like his silly style of spoofing, And I enjoyed this one as well... but it won't be one of my favorites of his. I think the main problem I had with this one was there were (IMO) too many music scenes. I think it would have been much better without them. I know there is many people out there that don't like this type of movie... and I admit it is not for everyone... so I can't say I straight out recommend it. But if you like the work of Mel Brooks I definitely think you should give it a go.

Title: Junior
Year: 1994
Director: Ivan Reitman
Rating: PG-13
Length: 110 Min.
Video: Anamorphic Widescreen 1.85:1
Audio: English: Dolby Digital: 5.1, French: Dolby Digital: 2-Channel Stereo
Subtitles: English

Stars:
Arnold Schwarzenegger
Danny DeVito
Emma Thompson
Frank Langella
Pamela Reed
Judy Collins

Plot:
A male doctor (Arnold Schwarzenegger) becomes pregnant after his associate (Danny DeVito) talks him into taking an experimental drug.

Extras:
Feature Trailers
Featurettes

My Thoughts:
Even though this is a (lets admit it) a stupid idea for a movie. It definitely has it's moments... and is really an entertaining movie. I think that is on the strengths of the stars. Danny DeVito and Arnold Schwarzenegger make a great team. The way Arnold portrayed a man being feminine and going through the physical and emotional symptoms of pregnancy definitely had a few laughs. Though over-all I wouldn't call this one a favorite. And I personally think that DeVito & Schwarzeneggar were better together in the movie Twins.  But this one is still enjoyable anyway.
