Tooth Fairy, a review by addicted2comics


Ok, I'm a little late, but here is a movie I recently watched.



The Tooth Fairy

The Plot: After nearly ruining a kid's fantasy of the tooth fairy, that is exactly what the famous hockey player must become.

My Thoughts: It was a fairly funny movie, though I can't help but get my impulse to joke out of the way and say THEY MADE THE ROCK WEAR A TUTU!!! Ok, I'm good now, and calm down it was only one scene. :laugh: . I still remember laughing so hard when the Rock made fun of the boss and his caseworker by saying, "Everbody here has a British accent!". Besides the hilarity it had a very cool plot and message about the importance of a kid's fantasies. I give it a 4 out of 5.

Driving Miss Daisy, a review by Eric


Driving Miss Daisy



Summary: Hoke Colburn sits in the front seat with his hands on the steering wheel, but the driver's seat is behind him. That's where Miss Daisy sits. She doesn't want a chauffeur and she won't give in. Neither will Hoke.

Alfred Uhry's moving Pulitzer Prize-winning play became 1989's Academy Award®-winning Best Picture. 'Driving Miss Daisy' tells of genteel but strong-willed Atlanta matron Daisy (Best Actress Oscar® winner Jessica Tandy) and her patient but equally determined chauffeur Hoke (Morgan Freeman). For two so different, they have a lot in common. And the bumpy road they travel leads to the friendship of a lifetime. From the film's nine Oscar® nominations, it drove off with two more awards: Best Adaption Screenplay (Uhry) and Makeup.

My Thoughts:   Very nice movie, no wonder it won the best picture Oscar in a time where they were still giving it to the best one and not to the most different or innovative....good or bad.  Jessica Tandy and Morgan Freeman both gave very good performances but that alone doesn't make the movie what it is.  There is more to it than just acting, the tone, the colors were there to make you feel the story.  The only down side is Dan Aykroyd as Tandy's son, I always found him to be an average actor and his performace in that movie didn't change my mind, in my opinion the man simply can't play any dramtic role, I don't find him credible, to me all his dramatic characters seem like caricatures.  Fortunately he doesn't have have a big part in the movie so it wasn't much of an annoyance.

The final scene where

is one of the most touching I have seen in a while.

Smallville Marathon #2, a review by DJ Doena


Season 2


Disc 1

Vortex
Synopsis: Lana's Truck is torn apart by the tornado but Clark is there to protect her. But on the day after the storm he has to go on a search for his father who has run after the reporter that wanted to disclose Clark's secret. While they are searching for him, Chloe makes the suggestion that they should stay "just friends".

My Opinion: This was actually a good resolution. Of course they had to find a way to silence that reporter and this way had an ironic touch. If Lex knew what secret the reporter has taken into his grave, I believe he would have killed Jonathan instead.
And when it comes to woman Clark is as sensitive as a wrecking ball.

Heat
Synopsis: The new school year has started and Lex wants to marry! And his fiancé is Clark's new biology teacher. She's so hot that Clark sets the silver screen on fire just by staring at it. But something isn't right with here. She has a strange control over all men, including Lex - but not Clark.

My Opinion: A "new ability" episode. It's always fun to see Clark learning to control it and he always can put it to good use in the same episode. But I didn't care much for the pheromone lady, maybe because I watched a similar story recently on Stargate SG-1.

Duplicity
Synopsis: Pete finds Clark's spaceship (that had been lost since the tornado) in a field and he wants Clark's help to salvage it. But then someone steals the ship and Pete suspects Clark - which isn't far from the truth because Clark and his father actually intended to steal it. Then Clark decides to reveal his secret to Pete.

My Opinion: A really good episode. I've been waiting for it. Clark simply needs someone he can confide to (apart from his parents) and his best friend Pete is the perfect choice. And Pete will prove that he's worthy of that knowledge in the very next episode.
The fact that Lionel now knows of the spaceship will also lead to very interesting storylines.

Red
Synopsis: Clark buys a ruby ring for $350. But the stone isn't ruby, it's red kryptonite (not yet) meteor rock. Clark loses all stoppages and becomes a badass guy. But just as the effect of green meteor rocks worsen his condition over time, so does the red one.

My Opinion: Great episode. Loved it. It rarely happens that Tom can play Clark out of character and the red kryptonite (sorry, it's simply easier than "meteor rock") gives him the perfect opportunity. I don't really worry about the end, he will save Lana's live once or twice and they will be friends again.
But the episode reminded me of Harley Cat:
