Title: I Know What You Did Last Summer
Year: 1997
Director: Jim Gillespie
Rating: R
Length: 101 Min.
Video: Anamorphic Widescreen 2.35:1, Pan & Scan 1.33:1
Audio: English: Dolby Digital: Dolby Surround, English: Dolby Digital: 5.1, French: Dolby Digital: Dolby Surround, Commentary: Dolby Digital: 2-Channel Stereo
Subtitles: English, French, Spanish

Stars:
Jennifer Love Hewitt
Sarah Michelle Gellar
Ryan Phillippe
Freddie Prinze, Jr.
Muse Watson
Bridgette Wilson

Plot:
Jennifer Love Hewitt (from TV's Party of Five) and Sarah Michelle Gellar (Scream 2) star with Freddie Prinze, Jr., Ryan Phillippe and Johnny Galecki in this terrifying tale of a body that just won't stay dead.

After an accident on a winding road, four teens make the fatal mistake of dumping their victim's body into the sea. But exactly one year later, the dead man returns from his watery grave, and he's looking for more than an apology. I KNOW WHAT YOU DID LAST SUMMER is a "pure fright machine (that) scares the hell out of you!" - Norman Wilner, Toronto Star

Extras:
Scene Access
Audio Commentary
Feature Trailers
Closed Captioned

My Thoughts:
This one is not what I would call a favorite... but I do enjoy it now and again. Even though this is little more then an entertaining teen slasher... I do enjoy seeing the familiar faces. Just to name a few we have one of my all-time favorites Jennifer Love Hewitt who I absolutely adored in Ghost Whisperer, then there was Sarah Michelle Gellar who was of course Buffy the Vampire Slayer and then there was Johnny Galecki who was in Roseanne and is currently starring in The Big Bang Theory. But as I was saying... over all not a terrible horror. It is entertaining for what it is... but don't go into this one with too high of expectations.

Well, I see you have Ronin, so that's a must. Not sure if it's your sort of thing though? Did you read the Michael Bay thread? I posted a YouTube video of the final car chase in Ronin.

Thanks for the suggestion... I just watched the trailer... and while it looks like a very good movie... I just not in the mood for it today. Though it is one I plan on watching before too long. :)

Title: The Mask of Zorro
Year: 1998
Director: Martin Campbell
Rating: PG-13
Length: 137 Min.
Video: Anamorphic Widescreen 2.35:1
Audio: English: Dolby Digital: Dolby Surround, English: Dolby Digital: 5.1
Subtitles: English

Stars:
Jose Maria de Tavira
Deigo Sieres
Emiliano Guerra
Yolanda Orizaga
Paco Morayta
William Marquez

Plot:
The original Zorro, Don Diego de la Vega, is captured and imprisoned just as Spain concedes California to Santa Anna. 20 years go by and his mortal enemy, Don Rafael Montero, returns to California with a plan to become wealthy at the expense of the peasants.

The story of an aging blade (Anthony Hopkins) passing along his wisdom and his edge to an angry young thief (Antonio Banderas). The young Zorro learns about politics, love, and war, at the feet of his teacher. His quest for personal revenge gives fire to his role as Colonial Mexico's most swashbuckling activist, one who must fight for his country and his woman (the ravishing newcomer Catherine Zeta-Jones, also quite handy with a sword).

Extras:

Feature Trailers
Featurettes

THX

My Thoughts:
I decided to watch this movie mainly for the fact that I never seen the sequel... The Legend of Zorro... even though I have owned it for almost a year now (got it for my birthday last year). Since I plan on watching it here soon I wanted to remind myself of this one first. I must say... I forgot how much fun this movie is. I enjoyed it quite a bit. It has plenty of good action/adventure as well as just the right amount of comedy mixed in. The movie is also well paced... you never feel the least bit bored while watching. And the entire cast does a great job. And of course Catherine Zeta-Jones looked just amazing. This is one I definitely feel comfortable recommending.

My Thoughts:
I have been curious about this film for some time now. Seen several good reviews for it. And I basically agree. Though I did have a bit of trouble with the subtitles. I am a rather slow reader so there was some pausing and rewinding going on... even though most the dialog was fairly short and to the point.... some of it was not. I like how they built up this movie... basically going from a drama to a psychotic horror movie. There is some graphic violence in this one. It is a pretty disturbing film. And it is one that will leave you thinking well after the movie is over. If you never seen this one... it is definitely worth checking out.

I saw Proof Of Life in a theater when it was first released.  I didn't care much for it.  You should take out Corky Romano and Deuce Bigalow and use them to reenact the woodchipper scene from Fargo...  :tease:
