Breathtaking cinematography and exhilarating aerial choreography highlight this compelling adventure that features a special appearance by Audrey Hepburn.

My Thoughts:

I am not sure how this one got by me. A Spielberg film that is not only a good romantic drama... but it also has a lot of great forest fore fighting scenes... and a touch of supernatural with the whole ghost story line. If you never seen this one I definitely recommend it. It has a lot of familiar faces in it such as Richard Dreyfuss, Holly Hunter, John Goodman and Audrey Hepburn in one of her final roles. I must say I really was pleasantly surprised with this film. As I picked it up as a blind buy because of it being a Spielberg film I wasn't familiar with.

Hot Fuzz, a review by Dragonfire


Hot Fuzz



Get ready for a gut-busting, outrageous comedy from the guys that created Shaun of the Dead>. Nicholas Angel (Simon Pegg) is a big-city cop who can't be stopped - but he's making[ everyone else on the force look bad. When he is reassigned to a small, quiet town, he struggles with this new, seemingly idyllic world and his bumbling partner (Nick Frost). But their dull existence is interrupted by several grisly and suspicious accidents, and the crime-fighting duo turn up the heat and hand out high-octane, car-chasing, gun-fighting, big-city justice in this hilarious hit critics are calling "Outrageous! Uproariously funny!" (Thelma Adams, US WEEKLY).

My Thoughts

This is my Z entry.

I first saw some of this movie on HBO a few months ago.  I liked what I saw, so I decided to pick up the DVD when I found it on sale.  The movie is really entertaining.  The plot works very well and is interesting.  Some of what happens is a tad twisted, but it works for the movie.  Things do move slightly slower at times, but I never felt like the pace was dragging and I was never bored by the movie.  The mystery is decent and keeps things interesting.  I do think there are a few surprises that work well.  A few scenes do have some graphic violence in them which might upset or even offend some viewers.  The cast is great in their parts, especially Simon Pegg and Nick Frost.  They are great together.  Nicholas and Danny are interesting characters - and I want the set up Danny has to store his DVD collection. lol



I did get a review posted on Epinions if anyone wants to take a look.

Charmed Marathon, a review by addicted2dvd


Disc 2:

5. Sight Unseen
An invisible demon is sent by the Triad to destroy the sisters, as Prue obsesses over a human stalker who seeks to kill her.

My Thoughts:
This episode is a fairly standard episode. This episode focuses both on the Cole plot as well as a weekly story that surprising has nothing to do with demons. Made for a nice change of pace... and evenly leveled.

6. Primrose Empath
Piper and Phoebe race against time to save a cursed Prue, who has been tricked by Cole (Julian MrcMahon) into helping a demon.

My Thoughts:
A decent... but standard episode. Shannen Doherty does a fine job in the scenes where she is being tortured by Empathy.

7. Power Outage
Cole/Belthazor invokes an Anger Demon to pit the sisters against each other, rendering them powerless and vulnerable to attack.

My Thoughts:
Yet again we get another good, but standard episode. I think it is all the Cole story lines that puts me off some. I have never been a fan of that character. Not for any real reason... as I do see him as adding a lot to the series... but something about him I just personally do not like. This episode does however show just how deeply their sisterhood bond means to them. They loose that and they loose much more then just a family member.

8. Sleuthing With The Enemy
Prue and Piper team up with a bounty-hunter demon to destroy Belthazor, but Phoebe has other plans for the man she loves.

My Thoughts:
Once again we get another good but standard episode... just an episode devoted to the Cole storyline.  I will admit... being such a huge Cole episode... my mind wandered a bit while watching this one.
