Starsky & Hutch, a review by addicted2dvd



Title: Starsky & Hutch
Year: 2004
Director: Todd Phillips
Rating: PG-13
Length: 100 Min.

Audio: English: Dolby Digital: 5.1, French: Dolby Digital: 5.1, Commentary: Dolby Digital: 2-Channel Stereo
Subtitles: English, French, Spanish

Stars:
Ben Stiller
Owen Wilson
Snoop Dogg
Fred Williamson

Juliette Lewis

Plot:
HERE COMES THE FUZZ! Starsky takes the wheel, Hutch rides shotgun and comedy runs wild in this hilarious twist on the landmark buddy-cop TV show.

Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson bring a playful chemistry to the roles of undercover detectives Starsky and Hutch. Todd Phillips (Old School, Road Trip) directs this '70s groove in which our guys are stripped of their badges, duped by a drug kingpin (Vince Vaughn) and totally ripped off in a disco contest. So, yeah, they got some scores to settle. Snoop Dogg is in fly funkadelic mode as urban coolster Huggy Bear. And Juliette Lewis and others make for nonstop fun. If inducing laughter is a crime, they're all guilty as charged!

My Thoughts:
Felt like a little action/comedy next. And I wanted to give this one a go because I recently blind bought the season 1 set of the TV Series... which I watched the first disc of so far and enjoyed. The series don't have nearly the amount of comedy in it that the movie does. Though it is more of a being silly style of comedy then a laugh out loud type. I found that I enjoyed the movie... but really expected a little more from it. I liked both Ben Stiller & Owen Wilson in the title roles. And I don't think I could imagine anyone doing Huggy Bear better then Snoop Dogg. I mean he hit the role just right going by the few episodes of the series I seen so far. It is a fun watch... but it could have been done better. Maybe doing it more like the series... and taking it more seriously would have helped... I don't know.

My Rating:
Out of a Possible 5

My Thoughts:
I quite enjoyed this film.  Lots of action, a decent plot, great effects for the most part, good acting, a decent score and lots of atmosphere.  The blood bath at the beginning was pretty gross.  The serum that caused the vampires to "explode" reminded me a lot of the effects of exposure to Mars atmosphere in Total Recall.  Pretty cool.  Definitely a keeper.

Pete's Pilots, a review by addicted2dvd



Medium


Pilot
Wife, mother, and psychic Allison DuBois (Patricia Arquette) can communicate with the dead and is convinced she can use her gift to help solve crimes. She's put to the test when she gets a call from the Texas Rangers.

My Thoughts:
This is one of my favorite current series. This series is what made me a fan of Patricia Arquette. This DVD set has both the Network Version as well as an extended version of the pilot. Today I watched the Extended version... which has about an extra five minutes.  This is a good introduction to the characters. I like how they did her husband in this show... while he supports her and believes in what she can do... he also is quick to remind her that she can't believe that everything in her dreams are meant to be true.
