My Thoughts:
This is a fun movie that has a nice bit of laughs in it. Jim Carrey is as crazy in this as he has ever been. While it is a good and funny movie... it wasn't quite as funny as I remembered it being. Don't get me wrong... it is definitely worth seeing... but I was just remembering it being more then what it is.

My Rating:
Out of a Possible 5

Zombieland, a review by RossRoy


Zombieland
WHAT THEY SAY
Nerdy college student Columbus (Jesse Eisenberg) has survived the plague that has turned mankind into flesh-devouring zombies because he's scared of just about everything. Gun-toting, Twinkie-loving Tallahassee (Woody Harrelson) has no fears. Together, they are about to stare down their most horrifying challenge yet: each other's company. Emma Stone and Abigail Breslin co-star in this double-hitting, head-smashing comedy.

MY THOUGHTS
What a great run that was! There's a few WTF moments, some nice surprises, but what I liked the most is the creativity shown all around on how to make the zombies suffer.

All four leads are good, but I'd say Woody Harrelson pretty much steals the show as Tallahasse the crazy "action-guy". It's also great how they managed to make the world look real and they didn't go overboard and didn't fall into the trap of putting zombies all over the place.

Yes, it's got the running zombies variety, but at least they clearly say it's a disease and not the undead.

In any case, the movie is great fun, and I loved it!

The Facts of Life: The Complete First and Second Seasons, a review by addicted2dvd


     The Facts of Life: The Complete First and Second Seasons (1979/United States)
IMDb |Wikipedia |Intro |
A spin-off of the tremendously popular "Diff'rent Strokes," THE FACTS OF LIFE is the hilarious series that follows housemother Mrs. Edna Garrett (Charlotte Rae) and her mission to instill values in the girls of Eastland School. The large first season cast included John Lawlor, Jenny O'Hara, Lisa Whelchel, Felice Schachter, Julie Piekarski, Kim Fields, Molly Ringwald, Julie Anne Haddock and Mindy Cohn. By the second season, the show focused on Mrs. Garrett and just four Eastland girls - spoiled Blair, gossipy Tootie, wise-cracking Natalie, and newcomer to the group, rebellious Jo (Nancy McKeon). Under Mrs. Garrett's guidance, these four go from wide-eyed school girls to mature young women ... all while learning THE FACTS OF LIFE! Guest stars include the cast of "Diff'rent Strokes," Helen Hunt and Richard Dean Anderson of TV's "MacGyver."

Stars:
Charlotte Rae as Mrs. Edna Garrett
Lisa Whelchel as Blair
Kim Fields as Tootie
Mindy Cohn as Natalie
Nancy McKeon as Jo

My Thoughts:
I just finished watching the first two seasons of this classic sitcom. One of my favorites. I always liked the entire cast. Many of the episodes of The Facts of Life deals with some pretty big issues... especially for the time ('79-'88). Starting with the very first episode. While they never say the word they are obviously showing that one of the girls under Mrs. Garrett's care is concerned she is a lesbian. Some of the other issues the episodes in this set covers includes cheating, crash diets, sex, adoption, divorce, drugs, the handicap, shoplifting and suicide. These first two seasons are rather short at 13 episodes each. Which I am sure is the reason they put the first 2 seasons together in one set. I really enjoyed revisiting these episodes... and I am now going to start season 3.
