Miss Congeniality 2: Armed and Fabulous, a review by addicted2dvd



Miss Congeniality 2: Armed and Fabulous
Sandra Bullock returns as Special Agent Gracie Hart in a funny, fabulous 'Miss Congeniality' follow up. This time, she's the bureau's new celebrity face, making the rounds of talk shows (her heroics at the Miss United States Beauty Pageant made her too famous for field work). She also has a new partner (Regina King), an agent with anger-management issues and a dim opinion of pampered Gracie. But when Gracie's friends (returning stars Heather Burns and William Shatner) are kidnapped, nothing can keep Special Agent GS13 out of the action. Look out world. The cover girl is going back undercover!

My Thoughts:
The first movie was just not enough of Sandra Bullock yet... so just had to pop in part 2. This one I don't feel was as good as the first one... but was definitely enjoyable. I liked the addition of Regina King... thought her character was a good addition since they changed Sandra Bullock's character so much.

Jonah Hex, a review by RossRoy


Jonah Hex
WHAT THEY SAY
OUT OF THE PAGES OF THE LEGENDARY COMICS AND GRAPHIC NOVELS STEPS JONAH HEX (Josh Brolin), a scarred drifter and bounty hunter of last resort who has survived death and can track anyone...and anything. Jonah's violent history is steeped in myth and legend and has left him with one foot in the natural world and one on the "other side." His one human connection is with Lilah (Megan Fox), where life in a brothel has left her with scars of her own. But Jonah's past catches up with him when the U.S. military makes him an offer he can't refuse: to wipe out the warrants on his head, he must hunt and stop dangerous terrorist Quentin Turnbull (John Malkovich). But Turnbull, now gathering an army and preparing to unleash Hell, is also Jonah's oldest enemy and will stop at nothing until Jonah is dead.

MY THOUGHTS
What to say? Guess you could say it's your run-of-the-mill, drab, soulless revenge story. Nothing stands out in this. A few pretty big explosions, some interesting weapon design. That's about it.

Boring story. Bland acting. Uninspired direction. Only redeeming quality, and that's not much, Megan Fox manages to not look like a tramp all the time. Guess that's something, considering she plays a whore.

Tom's TV Pilots marathon, a review by Tom


     Do Not Adjust Your Set (1967/United Kingdom)
IMDb | Wikipedia

(United States)
Length:280 min.
Video:Full Frame 1.33:1
Audio:English: Dolby Digital 1
Subtitles:


Plot:
Teatime 1968. In millions of homes in England something strange was happening and TV comedy around the world would never be the same again - 'Do Not Adjust Your Set'. Hitting audiences like a wet fish in the face it was weird, wonderful and above all hilarious. 'Do Not Adjust Your Set' combined the writing and performing skills of Eric Idle, Terry Jones and Michael Palin, added a dash of David Jason, a dollop of the legendary Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band and a hint of Terry Gilliam. Feast your eyes on the madness and discover how something completely different began....

This 2 DVD set features the recently rediscovered 9 episodes of the classic 'Do Not Adjust Your Set' series and a Comedy Family Tree poster booklet.


Do Not Adjust Your Set
1.01 Episode 1
This old series is written and stars three of the later Monty Pythons: Eric Idle, Terry Jones and Michael Palin. This is supposed to be a children's show but you wouldn't know this if not told so. You can already see some of the typical Python humor here.
