While this one has it's moments... for the most part I had a hard time keeping my attention on it. Most the acting was sub-par. Some decent graphics but most were pretty bad. Over-all I have seen worse but this one is below average.

My Thoughts:

This is one of the King miniseries I like a lot... but for some reason seldomly watch. I guess it has something to do with the length of miniseries. This one is loaded with big names and is a story that easily keeps your attention. I am not a big reader so I can't compare the miniseries to the book... but it is one of my favorites of his miniseries.

My Thoughts:

This is a favorite of mine and my late wife's both. Though it did use to scare her to the point that she made me go to every room with her after watching it... as she was afraid to be alone. Sure it is a bit slow in parts. But the story is of such interest to me that it didn't "feel" slow. I of course love the head spin scene... and then there is the whole spider walk down the stairs scene... very cool. Definitely one I would recommend.

The Omega Man adapts Richard Matheson's novel I Am Legend into a high-impact, high-tension saga of a fate not far removed from reality.

Plot:
All hell breaks loose when a tortured, misfit teenager (Sissy Spacek) unleashes her secret telekinetic powers against her psychotic mother (Piper Laurie) and sadistic classmates. Based on the best-selling Stephen King novel, this ultimate revenge fantasy is one of the all-time great horror classics!

Extras:
  • Scene Access
  • Feature Trailers
  • Bonus Trailers


My Thoughts:

This is a movie I haven't watched in years. I enjoyed this more then I thought I would actually. I kinda remembered it as being on the slow side. Which it does have a few slow scenes. But it is still a good and interesting story. I liked everyone in the movie. Including Piper Laurie as Carries mother... though I do think that (maybe purposely?) over-acted the part. It wasn't really bad... more like a hard time believing that she was that much of a nut case. I think Sissy Spacek did a wonderful job in it. If there was anything I didn't care for in this movie is some of the split screens they used during the prom. It kinda took you out of the story and reminds you that it is just a movie.

My Thoughts:

I remember really enjoying this one back in my early teens when it first came out. I can't say it is quite as good as I remember it being. But I definitely enjoyed every minute of it. Of course I do have a soft spot for '80s horror... after all they are the movies I grew up watching.

Sure, evil children has been done to death. Some probably done better then this one. And more times then not it seems to have to do with an eclipse when the children was born. But that don't take away from the fact that this one is good. It has some creative kills (gotta love the arrow through the peephole!) and a good story.

But upon daybreak, when the girls discover that they're the only residents of Los Angeles whom the comet hasn't vaporized or turned into a zombie, they do what all good Valley Girls do...they go shopping! But when their day of malling threatens to become a day of mauling, these gals flee with killer zombies and blood-seeking scientists in hot pursuit!

Sure this is a cheesy '80s flick..but it is one that I just find plain fun... nothing more then that. Just "leave your brain at the door" fun. It has a nice mixture of comedy that works well in my opinion. It is like a zombie flick with minimal use of zombies. I am so glad I upgraded this one to Blu-ray as the DVD release I had didn't have any extras.

Director:Paul Golding
Writing:Paul Golding (Writer)
Length:91 min.
Video:Widescreen 1.78:1
Audio:English: PCM: 2-Channel Stereo
Subtitles:English

Stars:
Cliff De Young as Bill
Roxanne Hart as Ellen
Joseph Lawrence [Joey Lawrence] as David
Matthew Lawrence as Stevie
Charles Tyner as Old Man

Plot:
In today's world of modern conveniences, everything we rely on is run by electricity. But what happens if the power we take for granted turns against us? Old man Holger (Charles Tyner) knows. He claims electricity is a living presence, whose voice can only be silenced by getting rid of anything that can hear it. Bill Rockland (Cliff De Young), however, refuses to believe him. It must have been an accident when an electric spark ruptured the gas pipe that nearly killed Bill's son (Joey Lawrence). And it's surely a coincidence when his wife (Roxanne Hart) is severely scalded by their electric water heater. But when his own power tools attack him and an electrical fire turns their home into a blazing inferno, Bill realizes Holger may have been right after all, and perhaps the time has come to finally pull the plug.

Extras:


My Thoughts:

Unfortunately this one is not all that impressive. I mean it has it's moments...but they are few and far between. The movie is slow and I just couldn't get myself to care about the characters. Then there is the fact that the acting itself leaves some to be desired at times.

Plot:
Nicholas Cage, Bridget Fonda and Rosie Perez star in this irrepressible romantic comedy inspired by the true story of a humble cop who leaves a $2 million tip to a hard-luck waitress.

Charlie Lang (Cage) is a neighborhood cop with a heart of gold – and a money-hungry wife Muriel (Perez) who's always looking for a way to cash in. When she asks Charlie to buy a lottery ticket, he agrees, then impulsively promises half the winnings to a waitress, Yvonne (Fonda). When their numbers hit, the real fun begins, as Muriel learns to live large while Charlie and Yvonne learn to love again. A captivating comedy laced with whirlwind romance, "IT COULD HAPPEN TO YOU should happen to everyone!" (Joel Siegel, Good Morning America)

My Thoughts:

This is a film I haven't seen in many years. And it was even better then I remembered it being. Nicolas Cage is pretty hit and miss for me... but I thought he was great in this one. A feel good movie which apparently is based off a true story. Definitely one I would recommend.
