Ginger Snaps 2: Unleashed
Brigitte is an addict. After mixing blood with her sister Ginger in an attempt to learn more about the condition, she has been infected with "the curse." Each day the curse in her grows stronger and she must increase her dosage of injections. When she is found laying face down in the snow after a near-escape from another beast, she is thrown into drug rehabilitation – locked behind doors without her life-saving antodote.
I won't say I enjoyed this one as much as the first one... but I still definitely enjoyed this one. It of course takes place after the first one. But this time it centers around Bridget more then Ginger. Though you do see and hear from her throughout the movie. I liked the character of the younger girl who is nicknamed Ghost. I also liked the ending of this movie. It was both interesting and unexpected.

Revenge of the Creature, a review by addicted2dvd
In this provocative follow-up to the original, the Creature (John Agar) has been captured by scientists who will stop at nothing to uncover his secrets. Miserable in captivity, the Creature finds only one source of sympathy – a beautiful female researcher (Lori Nelson). Soon he escapes and kidnaps her, determined to take her to his underwater lair. Acting legend Clint Eastwood’s first screen appearance is among the surprises found in this clever sequel, directed by the original’s Jack Arnold.
While I still enjoyed it... this one lost a little something for me by bringing the Gill-Man to civilization. Granted that if they didn't it would have basically been the same movie over again. I could be imagining things here... but it also seemed like we saw a bit less of the Gill-Man this time as well. And the parts without him seemed slower to me. Maybe because I didn't care about the characters quite as much this time as I did the last time. But over-all it is still a good movie.

"Friends" Marathon, a review by Rogmeister
Finishing up season one of Friends...
The One Where The Monkey Gets Away--Rachel petsits Ross' monkey Marcel but leaves the apartment door open and the monkey escapes. This episode has some good moments including an appearance by goofy neighbor Mr. Heckles.
The One With The Evil Orthodontist--Rachel has an encounter with her ex-fiance Barry. Jennifer Grey guests as Mindy, Rachel's one-time friend who is now Barry's fiance.
The One With Fake Monica--Monica's credit card is stolen and she then realizes that the "fake" Monica is doing everything she wishes she could...so she finds her and becomes friends with her. This is okay, nothing special in my opinion.
One of these episodes (I forget which one now) has Phoebe going to work temporarily for Chandler where she reveals no one at the office likes Chandler and says "They even do you" and we are introduced to Chandler's unique way of speaking..."Could that report be any later?"
The One With The Ick Factor--Monica discovers that the guy she's dating, who she thought was a senior in college really is a senior...in high school. Another okay episode which ends with the impending birth of Ross and Carol's son.
The One With The Birth--Yes, it's time for a birth...always a hit on sitcoms. Things get a bit complicated when Ross, Phoebe and Susan wind up getting locked in a supply room as Carol is about to give birth. Guest-stars include Leah Remini as a pregnant woman Joey assists.
The One Where Rachel Finds Out--While Ross is leaving on a trip to China, Chandler lips slip out to Rachel that Ross is in love with her. This is the season finale and sets the stage for the whole Ross-Rachel situation for seasons to come. At the end, Rachel is off to the airport to see Ross who is returning from China...not realizing that Ross is not returning alone.
