Plot:
Get ready for the wild comedy that goes where no movie has dared go before! Seth Rogen (Pineapple Express) and Elizabeth Banks (Role Models) star as two cash-strapped roommates who try to get out of debt by making an adult film. Once the cameras start rolling, things quickly get complicated...and hilarious! Writer/Director Kevin Smith is at his funniest, backed by a motley cast, including Craig Robinson ("The Office"), Jason Mewes (Clerks films), Justin Long (Live Free or Die Hard), and Brandon Routh (Superman Returns). Critics promise, "If you liked The 40-Year-Old Virgin, Knocked Up, and Superbad, you'll love Zack and Miri" (Shawn Edwards, Fox-TV).

Extras:
  • Scene Access
  • Bonus Trailers
  • Deleted Scenes
  • Featurettes
  • Outtakes/Bloopers


My Thoughts:
This one was given to me in a big bx of DVDs a while back. Is a Blockbuster exclusive disc that seems to come with some deleted scenes you can only get on this disc. I don't know how many deleted scenes is in the normal release... but this one has up over 40 in one section alone. Plus there is several more in another section of the special features. I have to admit that I enjoyed the movie itself. More then I thought I would actually. Though I do think it may have went a little too far for my taste in one or two scenes. But not so bad where it stopped me from enjoying the movie.


My Rating:
Out of a Possible 5

Tiptoes, a review by Rich


29/11

Tiptoes



A drama about prejudice and the bonds of family, Tiptoes centers around Steven (Matthew McConaughey), a firefighter whose artist girlfriend Carol (Kate Beckinsale) has recently find out she is pregnant. When Steven reacts with unexpected dismay, Carol is rightfully perplexed, that is until she learns that the rest of Steven's family are dwarves, including Steven's twin brother Rolfe (Gary Oldman).

Disappointing film that falls oddly between comedy and slush. This made me think of a Jerry Springer episode gone wrong, a strange film and I am not quite sure if I should walk away with a meaningful message or moral story onboard? McConaughey is particularly bad in this role, Oldman is clever but unconvincing, and the real star is Peter Dinklage, playing a French Marxist free spirit he is very funny. Cliche'd and overripe, this movie just doesn't hang together properly.  :yawn:

Smallville Marathon, a review by addicted2dvd


Season 4: Disc 6:

20. Ageless
Clark and Lana discover an abandoned baby in the cornfield and take him back to the Kent farm. However, once the baby ages from a newborn to a 7-year-old in a matter of days, the two realize he is aging at a rapid rate and frantically search for a cure before the disease kills him.

My Thoughts:
This one... to me is only an OK episode. Nothing special here what so ever... but it is Smallville... so for that alone I enjoyed it.

21. Forever
Clark must stop the school photographer after he sets up a secret simulated high school and begins kidnapping students -- starting with Chloe -- to keep the glory days of high school going forever.

My Thoughts:
This one however.. was a really good episode.I enjoyed it a lot. I also really liked the effects they used for this episode. This is the episode where the gang says goodbye to High School... and Hello to the next step in their lives... as they finish out the last day of school.

22.Commencement
Clark begins to piece together the reason he was sent to Earth after he has a nightmare that something horrible is going to happen to Smallville and heads to the cave to seek answers from Jor-El. His biological father tells him he must reunite the three crystals immediately or a disaster of epic proportions will befall the planet and even Clark won't be able to stop it.

My Thoughts:
This was a great episode! So much going on in this episode... if you blink you might miss something!  I love it... they had another cliffhanger season finale of course... the cliffhangers weren't as good this season as they were last season in my opinion.... but I did love (hated when originally aired) how they  showed Clark throw the crystal to create the Fortress of Solitude... but just as he threw it we see "To Be Continued". Awesome! at least it is now that I have them on DVD... I hated waiting the summer before seeing the Fortress when it originally aired!

Over-All Season 4 Thoughts:
Over-all it was a pretty good season. of course had it's plus and minus'... I hated to see Pete gone from the series... but loved to see Chloe find out about Clark... and how she handled it. In my opinion... she really proved herself that she is truly Clark's friend... even if they did have some rocky points. OK... I can wait no longer... must go off and start season 5!
