My Thoughts:

I first saw this film on DVD last year.... It took me just over a year but I finally found a blu-ray copy cheap enough to purchase. I am glad I finally tracked down a copy... as I enjoyed every minute of it. I found it to be just plain fun. Though I would have liked to seen Captain America in his uniform more during the middle of the film... that is just a minor complaint. Sure this is a bit on the cheesy side but sometimes that just adds to the fun of it. I found it to definitely be worth the time put in to watch it.

My Thoughts:

I watched this one the other day. It has been years since I seen it. But that is probably due to the fact that they ran the heck out of it when it was on cable.... and even I got sick of seeing it when flipping through the channels and such. But it is a good movie... I enjoyed it quite a bit. Definitely glad I finally decided to revisit it. I am actually having a hard time excepting this film is now 25 years old! I think Michael Keaton did a very good job portraying both the Batman persona as well as Bruce Wayne's. I was also pretty impressed with Jack Nicholson's version of The Joker.... though I do admit that Heath Ledger's version felt much more psychotic. I think the story itself was well done. If like me and you haven't seen this one in years, give it a go... it is worth the revisit.

My Thoughts:

I just finished watching this one. I must say, it is such a cute movie. I enjoyed it very much. But not only is it cute and fun... it is also a right sad film. I do not want to spoil anything here... but if you never read the comic this one did the right thing... it did not give too much away in the trailer. Matter of fact... I was expecting a much different film going by the trailer. This is one I definitely recommend checking out.

Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and the rest of the Justice League as they face off against Orm, otherworldly weapons and perilous odds.

My Thoughts:

I once again really enjoyed an animated superhero film. Of course this is of no surprise to the people that know me. I have always been a big fan of anything superhero related. Though I must admit, while I did like him, Aquaman was never a huge favorite of mine. Though I do think they did this back story of him well. But I must admit where they drew all the Atlantian males with long sideburns seemed to be an odd choice. It was like they were all stuck back in the '70s. Other then that a good film with lots of action. I feel comfortable recommending it.

Extras:
  • Scene Access
  • Audio Commentary
  • Deleted Scenes
  • Featurettes
  • Interviews
  • BD-Live

My Thoughts:

I grew up with the TV Series it is based on so that definitely added some value for me. I was somewhat surprised to see they changed it from a family on a camping trip to a scientist, his assistant and a guide. I think I would have preferred if it was more like the series in this regard... but I was still able to enjoy the movie. The fact that Will Farrell is the star is something else that had me nervous as to me he has always been a very hit and miss actor... I don't like half the stuff I see him in. The movie really is a lot of fun. A non-sense type of fun... but fun nonetheless. Some of it had me laughing out loud... but then again some of it had me shaking my head in disbelief. And I definitely got a kick out of both Chaka and Grumpy. But overall it was more entertaining then anything. Though I will say that for me it did go down hill a bit towards the end. Over-all I am glad I have it in my collection... and I can see myself watching it again

My Thoughts:

We decided to watch this one tonight. Which was a pleasure... as this is my type of film. A disaster film and true story. It is one I enjoyed very much. There was a couple familiar faces in it. One of course being Richard Chamberlin. The other was Catherine Mary Stewert who I enoyed very much in the '80s horror "Night of the Comet." If you never seen it, this is a TV Movie I would definitely recommend. It is one I hope to add to my own collection before too long.

This is one of my all time favorite series! I have seen not only this episode.... but this entire series countless times. Though this is the first time I got to see this disc on a high-def TV... making me realize that these discs don't look as god as they should. I would so love to see a blu-ray release of this series! But I love the show and it was a lot of fun rewatching the pilot episode again.

My Thoughts:

This is my second time I seen this one... and I must say I enjoyed it this time more then I did the first time. I think it is mainly because I didn't know what to expect the first time around. I think that Ellen Page was great in this movie. While I have liked Jennifer Garner since first seeing her in Alias... I wasn't all that impressed with her in this movie. I don't know... maybe it was just the character she had to work with... but I was a bit disappointed in her this time. Over-all it is a good story that kept my interest through-out.

     The Silence of the Lambs (1991/United States)
IMDb |Wikipedia |Trailer |
Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios, Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment (United States)
Director:Jonathan Demme
Writing:Thomas Harris (Original Material By), Ted Tally (Screenwriter)
Length:119 min.
Video:Widescreen 1.85:1
Audio:English: DTS-HD Master Audio: 5.1, Spanish: Dolby Digital: 5.1, French: Dolby Digital: 5.1, Thai: Dolby Digital: Dolby Surround

Jodie Foster as Clarice Starling
Lawrence A. Bonney as FBI Instructor
Kasi Lemmons as Ardelia Mapp
Lawrence T. Wrentz as Agent Burroughs
Scott Glenn as Jack Crawford

Plot:
From Thomas Harris' novel, director Jonathan Demme explodes and reconstructs a classic genre, laying a foundation of emotional and political commitment beneath a perfectly constructed psychological thriller. Fourteen years after her controversial role in TAXI DRIVER, Jodie Foster finally makes the transformation from helpless victim to rescuing hero in this dark, gender-bending fairy tale on an American obsession: serial murder. As Hannibal "the Cannibal" Lecter, Anthony Hopkins is the archetypal antihero—cultured, quick-witted, uncontainable—a portrait of all the sharpest human faculties gone diabolically wrong. Winner of five 1991 Academy Awards®, including Best Picture and Best Screenplay Adaptation for Ted Tally.

Extras:
  • Scene Access
  • Feature Trailers
  • Deleted Scenes
  • Featurettes
  • Outtakes/Bloopers


My Thoughts:

I have loved this movie since the first time I ever seen it back when it was first released in the early '90s. I have watched it countless time both on VHS and DVD.... but this is the first time I got to see it on Blu-ray! Both Jodie Foster and Anthony Hopkins were excellent in this one. This movie is the one that truly made me a fan of Jodie Foster. Even after countless times of watching this movie... it still has me glued to the screen with such an excellent storyline. If you have been living in a cave for the past 25yrs and never seen this movie... it is one I couldn't recommend any higher! It really is a must see movie!

My Thoughts:

As you can see by the cover this film is part of a Bill Murray double feature along with Groundhog Day. I found this movie to be just as much fun as I remembered it to be. A good solid '80s comedy. One that I would recommend everyone to see at least once. This film had me literally laugh out loud more then once. The film has a lot of familiar faces in it as well. So if you have never seen this one... put it on your list. And if you have seen it before... maybe it is time to revisit this classic comedy.

     Penny Dreadful: The Complete First Season: Disc 1


Plot:

Night Work
London 1891. As the police investigate a series of gruesome murders, renowned explorer Sir Malcolm Murray and the strangely beautiful Vanessa Ives know there's something darker at play. In search of someone close to them who has been lost, they recruit American sharpshooter Ethan Chandler and Dr. Victor Frankenstein to help them on their journey.


Stars:
Reeve Carney as Dorian Gray
Timothy Dalton as Sir Malcolm Murray
Eva Green as Vanessa Ives
Rory Kinnear as The Creature
Billie Piper as Brona Croft


My Thoughts:
This one was a blind buy when I found the blu-ray release cheap at a pawn shop. So I didn't know what to think going into it. But I must say... I enjoyed every minute of this one. Of course it didn't hurt that the pilot episode had vampires in it... and I must admit... a very interesting take on vampires at that. After watching this pilot episode (and episode 2)... I can't wait to continue on in the series. I am just sorry to see there is only 8 episodes in the first season.

     Smallville: The Complete First Season: Disc One


Plot:
1. PILOT
Rescue Lex, avoid Lana's killer green necklace, stop an avenging scarecrow man and don't reveal your powers to anyone. Who says being a teen hero is easy? Clark also learns he's not exactly from the neighborhood.


Stars:
Tom Welling as Clark Kent
Kristin Kreuk as Lana Lang
Michael Rosenbaum as Lex Luthor
Allison Mack as Chloe Sullivan
Sam Jones III as Pete Ross


My Thoughts:
I always really enjoyed this show... it was one of my favorites. I been in the mood to watch this series again for a while and watching this pilot episode was all it took to get me going again. In just one day I have already made it half way through the second disc. I think the pilot episode sets this series up well. All the characters in the series is likable... even at this point Lex Luthor. But watching him go from a likable character that truly wants to do good to the criminal mastermind that he becomes is, in my opinion, one of the things that draws you into this series.
