The Bourne Ultimatum, a review by DJ Doena


:redcard:
You are making me want to watch the Bourne Trilogy - again!!

 :tease:

Synopsis: Six weeks after the events in Berlin and Moscow Jason tries again to find out who he really is and where he came from. But there are still high-ranking CIA officers who can't let that happen, because it would endanger a number of secret and illegal operations. So once again they send out killers to stop him and everyone he comes in contact with, even other CIA personnel. Luckily for him, he's not the only one who wants to find out the truth.

My Opinion: This time they overdid it with the shaky cam. The fight between Desh and Bourne was nearly unfollowable, and even in the quiet scenes when Jason was talking to Marie's brother or to Nicky it appeared as if the cameraman had Parkinson's.
But I still thought that it was a good conclusion to the story, especially with Bourne choosing not to kill one of his assassins when he was helpless and getting rewarded for it in the end. I also like the final scene which made the imagery becoming full circle with the first scene in Identity.
If it were for me, I'd like to see another Bourne movie.

House on Haunted Hill (1959), a review by addicted2dvd



Title: House on Haunted Hill
Movie Count: 26
TV Ep Count: 9
Time Started: 3pm
Plot:
Vincent Price is wonderful as the sinister owner of an old, dark and evil mansion located on a haunted hill (I guess that's how they came up with the title). He bribes several of his enemies with an offer of $10,000 each, if they would spend the night in the crumbling mansion. He gives each of his guests a tiny coffin containing a handgun and proceeds to set in motion gadgets and devices aimed at frightening his visitors into using their weapons. Terror, murder, and the supernatural make this one of producer/director William Castle's best films.

My Thoughts:
Last night I had a dream... a dream that I was supposed to go to this old house to help the owner with some house repairs and such. When I arrived at the house I start looking for the owner... but strange things kept occurring leading me to  believe I was in a  haunted house. So I continued to look for the owner of the home. I finally find him.... to find that I was standing there looking at none other then Vincent Price! So we start working... but the ghosts kept messing with my work... and since my work kept getting messed up Vincent Price was steadily telling me off!

Well... that is where I woke up. Then later today I realized that I have not watched a single Vincent Price movie yet... and my marathon has been going on for over a week! Wow! what happened there!?! And did I anger Mr. Price's spirit and he send me down a dream to remind me of himself? LOL... OK... now on to the serious stuff...

This was the first Vincent Price movie I ever seen... and one of the movies that showed me the error in my ways (when I used to say Ewwwww... but it is B&W!). If you have not yet given this true classic horror movie a try... I highly recommend it!

Weekend Movie Marathon: TV Show Reunion Movies, a review by addicted2dvd



A Very Brady Christmas
Mike and Carol Brady decide to spend their savings on bringing their kids and relatives in for the holidays, but the kids are having their own problems: Greg (now a doctor) has to make the trip alone since his wife Nora is spending the holidays with her family; Peter is embarrassed to bring his girlfriend home since she is his boss; Bobby is hiding the fact that he dropped out of business grad school to race cars; Marcia's husband, Wally, has been laid off from his job at Tyler Toys; Jan and stuffy husband Phillip are separating; and Cindy is tired of the fact that mom and dad can't respect her as a grown woman. Just another day in the life of the Bradys.

My Thoughts:
I wasn't sure I was quite ready for this reunion movie... especially with it being so far out of season. But when Brittany found out I was doing reunion movies for this weekend's marathon... she really wanted to watch the Brady Bunch ones with me. So we decide to go ahead and do it. As I have said while watching the complete series set... I personally always enjoyed the reunion movies more then the series itself. I can say I have a new appreciation for the series... as I enjoyed it more then I thought I would when I watched it again... but think I still prefer the reunion movies. Some reason I really enjoy seeing the Brady kids all grown up. But I do believe this is the last time I will watch this particular reunion movie till the Holiday season comes!
