Bee Movie, a review by addicted2dvd
Weekend Movie Marathon
Unwatched DVD Collection
This weekend I felt like watching some of the movies I never seen before. (at least not on DVD) Besides... with my Birthday coming up next month I am pretty sure I will be needing to make some more room on my unwatched shelf. So... this weekend I decided to watch...
Everyone is buzzing for 'BEE MOVIE', the hit comedy from creator and comic icon Jerry Seinfeld. Ambitious young worker bee Barry B. Benson soars out into the world with the high-flying pollen jocks in search of nectar and adventure. But when he breaks one of the cardinal rules of beedom and speaks to humans, Barry sets off an un-bee-lievable chain of events that prove even a little bee can make a big difference!
I normally wait till I can watch the animated films so I can watch them with my daughter. This time however I decided to go ahead and watch this one without her. A friend gave me this disc so I wanted to be sure to watch it and let him know what I thought of it as soon as possible. I thought this was a very cute movie. I enjoyed it... and it was a nice change from what I usually watch. And it was good seeing (or hearing) Jerry Seinfeld in something new. I believe this is the first thing I seen (or heard) him in since his sitcom was canceled. Even though I watched this one now... I will still probably watch it again when Brittany decides she wants to watch it. To my friend Roger, Thanks again for the disc... I am sure Brittany will enjoy it just as much (if not more) as I did.

The Dark Knight Rises, a review by addicted2dvd
Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne
Gary Oldman as Commissioner Gordon
Tom Hardy as Bane
Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Blake
Anne Hathaway as Selina
Marion Cotillard as Miranda
Eight years ago, after assuming the blame for D.A. Harvey Dent's death, a disgraced Batman (Christian Bale) mysteriously vanished. But everything changes with the appearance of a cunning cat burglar (Anne Hathaway) and the arrival of Bane (Tom Hardy), a ruthless madman. Bane's reign of terror forces Bruce out of his self-imposed exile and into the ultimate battle for Gotham City's survival...and his own.
My Thoughts:Last night Brittany and I watched this one. Since I watched it with her... we were able to watch the blu-ray version. I enjoyed this one quite a bit... but I was expecting more from it. I don't know... maybe I let the hype get to me a little too much. I has a pretty good story... but I would have liked to seen Batman on screen more then what we did. The way they did Bane in this one seemed a little odd to me as well. Not bad mind you... just odd. This is one that is definitely worth checking out... just don't let the hype get to you.

"Battlestar Galactica" Marathon (1978-2009), a review by DJ Doena
Synopsis: Baltar, the Borellians and the soldiers of the Eastern Alliance plan to escape from the prison barge. And they succeed. Aboard the Galactica they take the Quorum members as hostages (except for Adama and Siress Tinia). Adama has to either let them go or he has to try to free the Quorum members with the risk of getting them killed.
My Opinion: I really liked the irony of this episode's title and the fact that Baltar was the only one who didn't escape. And the moment I saw the dismantled Cylons and Apollo stating that he had a plan I really believed (and hoped) that he and Starbuck would slip into the armour and pretend to be Cylon pilots. Too bad they didn't make that move, that would have been fun.
Experiment in Terra
Synopsis: When the squadron is following the escaped prisoners to Lunar 7, Apollo is suddenly brought aboard the ship of light again. There he's warned of a great danger Terra is in and that it's important for them, for the people in the fleet and even for the light beings that he helps the people on Terra. When he lands there he's recognized as someone else but he has little success in convincing them. Luckily Starbuck and also the Galactica aren't that far behind.
My Opinion: I really liked Edward Mulhare (Devon in Knight Rider) in the role of John. He was a funny guy and yet recognizable as the father figure he would later become to Michael Knight. But I also liked that Terra wasn't Earth, I didn't like the Terra storyline very much.
Take the Celestra
Synopsis: During a ceremony Starbuck discovers that an old girlfriend of his is still alive and did not die on Caprica as he had suspected. Cassiopeia isn't very thrilled but there's also not much she can do. Starbuck and Apollo follow Aurora to the Celestra and run in the middle of a mutiny. And Aurora is of course among the mutineers. But not everything is as it appears to be.
My Opinion: It was an OK episode. But it was a bit constructed that the XO developed the plan to get rid of his captain and miraculously a mutiny started in just that moment and gave him the opportunity. The captain also seemed to have lost touch with his crew, otherwise he had to notice that his XO was a "slave driver". But he still got a medal for his excellent leadership.
The Hand of God
Synopsis: The Galactica receives a signal that might have come from Earth but soon they detect a hidden Basestar that is looking for them. But Adama and Tigh are both tired of running. Adama develops a plan to attack and destroy the Basestar and its Raiders. Apollo and Starbuck get the most crucial role in that attack: They have to board the Basestar and to destroy its sensors. Both Cassiopeia and Sheba aren't very happy about it.
My Opinion: I really liked that final episode of the old series. It had the right amount (and quality) of humour and charm in it and also a good deal of action - even though they re-used the FX shots once again, there were so many and even some new shots that it looked really good. I also liked the idea that Apollo and Sheba may become a couple, Apollo had been alone since Serina died.
The Series - My Opinion: I will miss these guys. I really like the new series. But it's different there. The old series had its own charm and the characters are still great. Granted, a lot of the episodes have aged a lot and don't hold up in comparison to today's shows but it was still nice to see characters that aren't burdened with a difficult past but are straightforward WYSIWYGs.
