Not Another Teen Movie, a review by Jimmy

Title : Not Another Teen Movie (2001)

In this over-the-top parody of the classic moments in teen movie history, super-jock Jake Wyler makes a bet with his buddies that he can turn the school frump into a prom queen.

My Impression
We are almost at the end of the marathon and I've decided to watch one that I know and like. This one is the best of this genre made in this decade and yes I find this better than Shaun of the Dead (Sorry Jon). Evidently the fact that I've watched most of the movies referenced in this help to my appreciation. This isn't really good for my reputation but at one point I was watching regulary movies like Can't Hardly Wait, Varsity Blues, She's All That, Cruel Intentions, Never Been Kissed, ... Since I'm 39 years old I've watched the batch of eighties teen movie (The Breakfast Club, Risky Bussiness, Pretty in Pink, Sixteen Candles, ...) too (but I was a teenager than) so it's good to see the references at those movie too. The cameo done by Molly Ringwald (God she's beautifull) and Paul Gleason are nice surprises. The casting choices are particullary good with many up and coming young actors who had move for most of them to "better" thing. One of the best choice is Lacey Chabert who in the film play the role of Amanda (the same role played By Jennifer Love Hewitt in Can't Hardly Wait), she looks exactly like JLH. There are so many great joke in this that you laugh from the beginning... By exemple when The Token Black Guy encounters the other black guy at the party or when the father of Jake presents him a rebound girl or one of my favourite line at the prom dance (Who would've guessed that everyone in school was a professional dancer?). I like the music too, nice idea to had eighties songs (original or remade) for the soundtrack.

I know that this review take some of you by surprise, but I really like this film that is exactly what a parody is suppose to be.

edit : I even listen an album of Jennifer Love Hewitt while I had wrote my review :laugh:

Terminator 2, a review by DJ Doena

March, 18th

Arnold Schwarzenegger    ...    The Terminator
Linda Hamilton   ...    Sarah Connor
Edward Furlong   ...    John Connor
Robert Patrick   ...    T-1000
Earl Boen   ...    Dr. Silberman
Joe Morton   ...    Miles Dyson
Leslie Hamilton Gearren    ...    Twin Sarah

Synopsis: A decade has passed since Kyle Reese was killed and the Terminator was destroyed. But now he's back. Another T-800 was sent back through time. But he's not here to terminate. He's here to protect John from the more advanced Terminator model T-1000 - a shapeshifter. Sarah, John and the T-800 have their hands full with staying alive and preventing the apocalypse. They have to destroy Skynet before it's even made.

My Opinion: I had totally forgotten how young John was. I remembered him at least four years older - maybe due to new series. But I still like the movie very much. Robert Patrick is a great adversary with cool morphing effects. And while some of the jokes that John made the T-800 do were a bit childish I liked their interaction. I also liked how the T-800 killed nobody and still had an amazing rounds per minute ratio.
For me, it's the best part of the trilogy - let's see how the fourth part will be.

Pete's Pilots, a review by addicted2dvd

The Jeff Foxworthy Show
At last, a family comedy fit for the whole trailer park! Jeff Foxworthy, popular stand-up comic, stars as a hardworking husband and father. With his loving wife Karen (Anita Barone), precocious son Matt (Haley Joel Osment) and trouble-making kid brother Wayne (fellow comedian Jay Mohr), Foxworthy has a single-family house full of double-wide laughs! Together, the Foxworthy clan is giving the Midwest a taste of Southern hilarity. As the owner of a heating and air company, Jeff takes his signature brand of humor and turns the American dream on its ear. Between paying his mortgage, running his business and raising his son, he learns what every self-respecting redneck knows: tractor pulls come and go, but family is forever!

Jeff's Life, 101
As soon as Jeff repays half of a loan from his Father-in-law, he gets hit with a series of unexpected expenses and has to figure out how to get the check back.

My Thoughts:
I actually forgot how funny this show is. Of course I have always been a fan of Jeff Foxworthy.  I had to laugh at the opening of this episode. Jeff's son asked what a redneck is... that he was called a redneck at school. So of course we get a good little string of redneck jokes to open the series with. This is a series that didn't last long. Only 2 seasons... but it is one full of laughs. Especially for someone like me that was raised around rednecks.

My Rating:
