Get Smart, a review by Tom




Title: Get Smart
Year: 2008
Director: Peter Segal
Rating: 12
Length: 110 Min.
Video: Widescreen 1.78
Audio: English: Dolby Digital 5.1, Audio Descriptive: Dolby Digital Stereo, French: Dolby Digital 5.1, German: Dolby Digital 5.1, Italian: Dolby Digital 5.1, Spanish: Dolby Digital 5.1
Subtitles: Chinese, Danish, Dutch, English, Finnish, French, German, Italian, Korean, Norwegian, Portuguese, Spanish, Swedish

Stars:

Plot:
Steve Carell is in CONTROL as Maxwell Smart, the novice agent often out of his depth but never out of options in this action comedy, pitting him against the nuclear scheme of the evil spy group KAOS. Anne Hathaway partners with Max as ever-capable Agent 99. And director Peter Segal (The Longest Yard) guides his stars (including Dwayne Johnson and Alan Arkin) through the dangerous realm of molar radios, multifunction pocketknives, exploding dental floss and more.

Extras:
Deleted Scenes
Featurettes
Outtakes
Scene Access

My Thoughts:
Mostly full of tired and rather unfunny spy movie parody jokes. Only executed slower than in other run-of-the-mill spy parody movies. There were a few fun scenes, but they were far between. I liked Anne Hathaway though. It's a different kind of role for her and she did a good job.

The Big White, a review by KinkyCyborg




Title:The Big White
Year: 2005
Director: Mark Mylod
Rating: 14A
Length: 105 Min.
Video: Anamorphic Widescreen 1.85:1
Audio: English: Dolby Digital: 5.1, English: DTS: 5.1, French: Dolby Digital: 5.1
Subtitles: French

Stars:
Robin Williams (1951)
Holly Hunter
Giovanni Ribisi
Tim Blake Nelson
W. Earl Brown

Plot:
So what's a nice guy with with good intentions but bad business sense to do? The answer lies frozen in a dumpster outside of Barnell Great Escapes - a dead body that Paul (Robin Williams) hopes to pass off as his long-lost brother, Raymond (Woody Harrelson), then collect his life insurance in order to help his beloved wife Margaret (Holly Hunter). Unfortunately, investigator Ted Watters (Giovanni Ribisi) and his girlfriend (Alison Lohman), are not about to let Barnell walk away with a million bucks. Adding to Paul's avalanche of problems are two aspiring hit men-turned-kidnappers (Tim Blake Nelson and W. Earl Brown) and the stunning return of the supposedly dead Raymond, who now has an axe to grind with his brother. Desperation is running high in the "big white," and if Paul is smart, he'll blow the snow, and take the money and run!

Extras:

My Thoughts:

A great cast that was wasted on what was largely a bore of a movie. Holly Hunter was fun as the wife with Tourette Syndrome but the rest of the cast, especially Robin Williams, looked like they mailed it in on this one.  :thumbdown:

My Thoughts:
I got this set only 4 days ago... and I already finished the entire thing! What can I say... this is my favorite medical drama! I really adore all the characters... and immensely enjoy all the storylines. It also helps that I haven't seen these episodes since they originally aired back in the  2011-2012 TV season. Some of this season's highlights for me were people falling into a sinkhole... Karev bringing the children for surgeries from Africa.... Shepherd and Grey adopting one of those children... Stampede at a Comic-Con.... A Penis Transplant... A Lion Attack... and an incredible season finale that makes you wish you could continue with the next season right away! If you never got the chance to check out this series... and you enjoy a good medical drama... this one is definitely a must see!

My Rating:
Out of a Possible 5
