My Thoughts:

This is another film I found on Netflix. It is entertaining enough to be worth the time put in to watch it... but at the same time I would say very average. While I can see myself watching this one again it is not one I would feel I have to see every Christmas. That being said... I would add it to my collection if I got it cheap enough.

Pretty in Pink, a review by GSyren


TitlePretty in Pink (097361-380544)
DirectorHoward Deutch
ActorsMolly Ringwald, Harry Dean Stanton, Jon Cryer, Annie Potts, James Spader
Produced1986 in United States
Runtime97 minutes
AudioEnglish Dolby Digital 5.1, French Dolby Digital Mono
SubtitlesEnglish
OverviewMolly Ringwald is the smart girl from the wrong side of the tracks. Andrew McCarthy is the rich boy who genuinely loves her. And Jon Cryer is... just Duckie. And they are all back in the brand-new "Everything's Duckie" Special Collector's Edition of Pretty in Pink! Written by John Hughes and directed by Howard Deutch, Pretty in Pink will take you back to the prom... the laughter, the tears, and that very first kiss.
My thoughtsI never saw any of the brat pack movies (unless Ferris Bueller's Day Off counts, but I don't think it does), because they just didn't seem to be my kind of movies. Now, almost 30 years later, it seemed that I should at least give one a try. So I choose Pretty in Pink. And it pretty much confirmed my initial suspicions. It was not my kind of a movie. Probably a generation thing...

Firefly Marathon, a review by Tom


06. Our Mrs Reynolds
Writer: Joss Whedon (Writer)
Director: Vondie Curtis Hall
Cast: Nathan Fillion (Mal), Gina Torres (Zoe), Alan Tudyk (Wash), Morena Baccarin (Inara), Adam Baldwin (Jayne), Jewel Staite (Kaylee), Sean Maher (Simon), Summer Glau (River), Ron Glass (Shepherd Book), Christina Hendricks (Saffron), Benito Martinez (Boss), Erik Passoja (Bree), Bob Fimiani (Elder Gommen), Alex Stemkovsky (Bandit #1)

My favorite Firefly episode. It is just a lot of fun. Like the reaction of the crew of finding out that Mal is married. The teasing. And of course Jayne trying to trade is favorite gun for Saffron. Also Inara insistance of having hit her head to hide the fact she kissed Mal's poisoneous lips.
