My Thoughts:
The Wikipedia article compares this movie with the movie Bonnie and Clyde. As I have never seen that one, I cannot really comment on this, but it really reminded me of Catch Me If You Can. Only with a couple instead of a single con artist. And like in Catch Me If You Can there is a policeman following them. Even the ending is very similar.
Although I enjoyed most of the songs in this one, they rarely were integrated into the plot.

My Thoughts:
This is a story about a couple who falls in love (after much pursuing by the man), but after they are married, the woman develops Alzheimer's. The second half of this movie is about how the couple are handling this.

I liked the story itself in this movie, but I didn't much care for the songs. Without them, the movie is a nice romantic movie that I can recommend to watch.

It is nice to see more movies with Kajol again. This is the second movie I have seen which she has made after her baby break (the other was Fanaa which I reviewed recently).

My Thoughts:
I didn't enjoy the second series as much as the first one. But that is not to say, that it was bad. It is still one of the best sci-fi comedies ever.
In this series we first meet Kryten, although played by a different actor than later on. The best episodes are Queeg, where Holly plays an elaborate joke on the crew, and Parallel Universe where the crew meets alternate female versions of themselves.

Title: Red Dwarf III
Year: 1989
Director:
Rating: 12
Length: 161 Min.
Video: Full Frame 1.33:1
Audio: English: Dolby Digital Stereo, Commentary: Dolby Digital Stereo
Subtitles: English

Plot:
The Red Dwarf crew stumble further into deep space facing an emotion-sucking polymorph, a psychotic mechanoid and a version of Earth where time runs backwards. Sdaehgems.

Extras:

My Thoughts:
The third series is really great. A new regular character is introduced: Kryten. He is a really great addition to the cast. Also Holly is replaced with a female version. Although I missed the deadpan delivery of the male Holly, the ditzy female Holly is also fun.
This series is off to a great start with Backwards, where the crew lands on an alternate earth, where everything runs backwards.
Marooned is a great character piece between Lister and Rimmer.
Polymorph is simply fun with a shapeshifting something loose on the ship.
In Bodyswap Rimmer convinces Lister to swap bodies (being a hologram is cannot touch anything with his normal body). But instead of the promised work out, he really pigs out with Lister's body.
Timeslides is some timetravel fun, where the crew tries to change the past to prevent themselves being caught on Red Dwarf.

Title: The Big Bang Theory: Season Two
Year: 2008
Director:
Rating: 15
Length: 536 Min.
Video: Anamorphic Widescreen 1.78
Audio: English: Dolby Digital Surround, Spanish: Dolby Digital Surround, French: Dolby Digital Surround
Subtitles: Danish, Dutch, Finnish, French, Norwegian, Spanish, Swedish

Plot:
The science of funny is back! At work, physicist Leonard and Sheldon and their geek pals conquer the cosmos. At home, real life - from dating to driving - conquers them. This season, Leonard gets a girl. So does Sheldon. (Sheldon?!) Howard drives the Mars Rover into a ditch. Raj woos a terminator. Gorgeous girl-next-door Penny falls under the spell of Age of Conan. And super-smart, überconfident Leslie Winkler reduces mere men to spineless jellyfish. Twenty-two laugh-filled episodes from series creators Chuck Lorre (Two and a Half Men) and Bill Prady (Gilmore Girls) and a talented cast with astronomical comedy IQs shows why Big Bang is such a big hit.

Extras:
Featurettes
Outtakes

My Thoughts:
I love this series. The funniest series in a long time. I especially love the interactions between Sheldon and Penny. I still believe, that if the series lasts long enough, these two should finally end up together.

Question is though, what is "long enough"? And therefore "will we care?"

In short: I hope they don't drag it out too long and quit while they are ahead. (not that I really believe that, I guess they'll milk it until they last drop).

I have watched the first disc of season 2 so far and am liking it very much until now.

Somehow I can't imagine Sheldon and Penny. Thus far Sheldon shows no interest towards any woman at all and I don't see a reason why Penny should suddenly fall for Sheldon (and hurt Leonard in the process?). It's like Rachel+Joey: Just doesn't work...

And I don't see what Penny sees in Leonard. He is just too whiny. Though I haven't seen any episodes from season 3, so I do not know how this develops. But everytime I see Sheldon and Penny interact, I see moments where she seems to see past his eccentricities. And the fact that Sheldon often seeks out Penny's advice at least shows, that he has come to like her.
And also: Rachel and Joey had more sparks between them than Ross and Rachel towards the end of the series.

Mine, too. That Scene is so great. The other one is where Penny raises her shields.

I'm liking Penny and Leonard together. 
I do think Penny and Sheldon have wonderful interactions, but I don't see them as a couple.  Sheldon has accepted her as a friend..but I don't think he'd go further.  He doesn't even talk about liking women.  The closest he's really come is when he sort of stole Raj's date..and even then he had no clue what he'd done wrong.
And Rachel and Joey was all wrong.  Just the hint at that really annoyed me..and I believe that was another time when I stopped watching for a while.  I kept getting annoyed when it looked like Ross and Rachel would get back together to only have another fight or something.  I still haven't seen the episodes when they first broke up..and have seen very few of the ones when Ross was dating that woman from England he married...Emily I think..I didn't like that either.

Or when his groupies invited themselves to his home he was just happy to get a fee dinner. (Obviously it went all downhill after the dinner, but you've all already seen it anyway).


As much as I agree that Leonhard (or whatever he's spelled like) is a whiner I can see that getting Sheldon together with Penny in just one season, or no more than two, would be entirely wrong and against character. Maybe he and the Sara Gilbert character can somehow overcome their animosity....? Hmmmm !
