My Thoughts:
I am surprised, but I enjoyed this movie more than expected. I even enjoyed it more than the first movie. I never really liked Jason Lee as David (I like him, but I think he is miscast in the role), so I had no problem with it, that he had a smaller part here. Instead we get Zachary Levi ("Chuck") opposite of the Chipmunks and I think it worked out great.

Date Night, a review by Dragonfire


Since I like Steve Carell and Tina Fey, I was interested in Date Night when I heard about it.  I had the chance to see it a week ago.

I think the plot is entertaining, having a married couple going on a date night and all the wild things that happen.  I do the reason for why they choose to go into the city instead of their usual restaurant is believable even if much of everything else that happens isn't.  Some things are a bit silly, but I think the movie is very entertaining.  There is a good amount of humor, and some of the funnier things weren't even shared in the trailers.  There is action in various scenes as well and I think that is blended well with the humor.  This really isn't a movie for younger children since it is rated PG-13. 

Steve Carell and Tina Fey are great in their parts.  They make a very believable married couple and worked very well together.  Their fans should give the movie a chance.  Mark Wahlburg turns up shirtless in a few scenes.

Overall I really enjoyed this movie and think it is worth watching, especially for fans of Fey and Carell.



I did get a review posted at Epinions if anyone wants to take a look.

Veronica Mars Marathon, a review by addicted2dvd


Veronica Mars
Season 3 Disc 5

17. Debasement Tapes
An ex-rock star living off nostalgia and his deceased partner's talent arrives at Hearst -- but his backing tapes don't. Mac's romantic relationships become almost as tangled as Veronica's.

My Thoughts:
A good episode... as I liked the mystery.... but not one of my favorites. What with my dislike of music and this being about a rock star really is wasted on me.

My Rating:

18. I Know What You'll Do Next Summer
Veronica's new case involves a fellow student, a Ugandan who authored a memoir about his heart-rending experiences as a child soldier. Everybody's making summer plans, from internships to jobs to surfing.

My Thoughts:
An interesting episode. The mystery wasn't that hot in my opiniion. But I liked that this episode started telling us what is happening in the future for some of our favorite characters.

My Rating:


19. Weevils Wobble
A bum knee and a bum rap. Weevil injures his knee on the job, then is fingered as the mastermind of a campus fraud ring. Luckily, he knows this smart blonde who just got her PI license.

My Thoughts:
This is an awesome episode. I enjoyed every minute of it. From beginning to end Weevil proves to be the same old Weevil from beginning to end.

My Rating:

20. The Bitch is Back
When someone starts circulating a compromising video of Veronica, she gets mad, she gets even and she gets a harrowing blast from the past.

My Thoughts:
Another excellent epsiode! Personally I would have liked to seen some more of the video that was talked about... but that is neither here nor there. But I enjoyed everything about this episode. Well everything except the ending for Keith Mars... while it is the ending that had to be for the episode... it is not the ending I would have preferred to see.

My Rating:


Season 3 Disc 5 Thoughts:
What a great ending to an awsome series! I am so sorry that this series ended after only 3 seasons. Just like all the discs beforfe it... the 5th disc has no extras what so ever but there is a 6th disc with all the bonus material... see that info below.

Veronica Mars
Season 3 Disc 6

Bonus Material:
Season 4 Presentation - This is the idea they had for the fourth season. It is a jump into the future... and Veronica Mars is an agent in the FBI. It is not the length of a full episode... it is only about 12 minutes long. But I really enjoyed where they were planning to go... I would have loved to of seen it!

Pitching Season 4 - 18 minute featurette about the hopeful 4th season. I only watched a portion of this tonight.

Going Under Cover with Rob Thomas - a 9 part featurette for the third season. Once again... only watched a portion tonight.

Webisode Gallery - pretty self explanitory... there is 5 different web features here.

Additional Scenes with Introduction by Show Creator Rob Thomas - several deleted scenes for season 3. Some of which I wish stayed in the show... some I can see why they were cut.

Gag Reel - One of my all time favorite DVD extras... I just think it is a lot of fun seeing the actors goof off or messing up their lines. This one lasts 7 minutes.

Not bad collection of extras... but I would have liked to have seen a bit more... maybe a few cast commentaries or something. I must say my favorite of the extras has to be the Season 4 Presentation followed by the Gag Reel.
