The Love Guru, a review by addicted2dvd

Mike Myers as Guru Pitka
Mike Myers plays the hilarious character The Guru Pitka!
As The Guru Pitka vies for the title of the world's best self-help guru, Pitka must help a star hockey player win his wife back from rival athlete Jacques "Le Coq" Grande (Justin Timberlake) and, along with it, the Stanley Cup. Will Pitka's comic Karmic intervention be enough to turn this losing team into champions?
Also starring Jessica Alba and Vern Troyer, The Love Guru is "one big laugh from beginning to end!" (Jim Ferguson, KGUN 9 ABC)
My Thoughts:Another one I borrowed from the library. But this one didn't impress me all that much. While it did have a moment or two for the most part I found myself just waiting for it to be over. The only one I really liked in this film was Jessica Alba. She made this movie tolerable enough to make it to the end. Other then that... I would say skip this one.

The Running Man, a review by Tom
Title: The Running Man
Director: Paul Michael Glaser
Length: 101 Min.
Video: Widescreen 1.85
Audio: English: Dolby Digital Stereo
Maria Conchita Alonso
In the year 2019 an innocent man accused of a crime has a coice - Hard Time or Prime Time. He must pay or play The Running Man - the highest rated Television Show in history.
It's a game between life and death but tonight the game is going to be different - Arnold Schwarzenegger is The Running Man. He's playing for a prize - the prize is his life. From now the rules are going to change... forever.
My Thoughts:One of my favorite 80s action flicks. A nice choice to get a real game show host for the role of Damon Killian.
Though I think I will replace this release, when a Blu-ray release comes out. The DVD has non-anamorphic video and only stereo sound.

The One Where It All Began: The Pilot Marathon, a review by DJ Doena
Hercules: The Legendary Journeys
What's the show about?
Hercules, son of the father of the gods, Zeus, travels through the world and helps villagers who are in danger. He fights warlords, demons and the creatures created by his stepmother Hera, the queen of the gods.
"Hercules and the Amazon Woman"
It's not exactly a pilot, it's the first of five TV movies that were made before the actual series. But it's as good as a pilot.
A man comes to Hercules and Iolaus and asks for their help. His village is attacked by beasts. Hercules and Iolas accompany the man. But they are attacked by the beasts and Iolaus dies in it and Hercules learns that they are not beasts, but amazon warriors...
Hercules was a good show, although (as I said) I liked Xena more.
