Joshua Jackson (The Skulls, TV's "Dawson's Creek") and Jamie King (Pearl Harbor) star in a hysterically rowdy look at small-town life and big-time trouble... deep in the heart of Texas. Also starring DJ Qualls (The New Guy, Road Trip), Matthew Davis (Blue Crush), Ryan Hurst (We Were Soldiers, Remember the Titans) and recording artist John Mellencamp (Falling From Grace).

With a couple grand in the bank and a dream in their hearts, Earl Crest (Jackson) and his girlfriend Baby (King) plan their escape to Los Angeles from their hometown of Bennett, Texas. But a dim-witted cousin (Qualls), an ex-con and an angry drug lord threaten to derail their plans. Now, with just 48 hours to straighten things out, Earl finds himself in the middle of a mess - bigger than the entire state of Texas!

Feature Trailers
Closed Captioned

My Thoughts:

Here's another I got of SwitchPlanet that I had little expectations from but it turned out to be a hilarious comedy about small town living.

Bennett, Texas sets the scene of a young couple, Earl & Baby played by Joshua Jackson & Jamie King who dream of getting out of the dead-end town and head for Los Angeles. A series of unfortunate but uproarious events threaten to delay their departure.

While this does get to be a little too silly near the end, there are many laugh out loud moments that more than make up for it. Dj Qualls & Ryan Hurst as the ex-con Tinker are comic genius as the conniving dimwits who stir up trouble for everyone. I've yet to watch a comedy with DJ Qualls that he didn't make me laugh. Ryan Hurst, whom I've never heard of, is way over the top but in all the right ways, stealing scene after scene.

Some interesting bit parts for both John Cougar Mellencamp and Thomas Hayden Church as well round out a great cast.

For a movie I knew little about I was pleasantly surprised as this movie will get more viewings down the road I'm sure.  :thumbup:

Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief, a review by Dragonfire

Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief

I went to see Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief last week.  I had recently read the book and enjoyed it overall even though I think it had some issues.  The movie is entertaining, but it could have been better.  It does seem to be trying to be the next Harry Potter.  There are several similarities even though there are differences.  This one comes off more as Harry Potter light.  The characters are ok, but not as interesting.  The plot is interesting while still being ultimately predictable.  There are a lot of changes from the book that I still havenít figured out.  The acting is ok, though nobody really stood out.

I did get a review posted on Epinions.

The One Where It All Began: The Pilot Marathon, a review by DJ Doena


What's the show about?
Captain Reynolds commands an old Firefly class starship called "Serenity", after the Serenity Valley, where a deciding battle in the Unification War has taken place. Reynolds and his crew smuggle stuff and loot abandoned ships as well as they do regular transports of people and cattle. And they try to avoid contact with The Alliance and the Reavers.

While they're looting a ship an Alliance cruiser detects the Serenity and they can barely escape but now they've got a search warrant for them and their employer won't take the looted items. In a try to sell them elsewhere they take passengers to the planet Boros with a little detour...

My Opinion
To sad that the show only lasted for a dozen episodes. It was an interesting concept especially with all these different characters and the ambiguous captain.
