His Girl Friday, a review by addicted2dvd

His Girl Friday
Hildy Johnson has divorced Walter Burns and visits his office to tell him that she is engaged to another man and that they are going to get married the day after. Walter Burns can't let that happen and frames the other man, Bruce Baldwin, for a lot of stuff getting him into trouble all the time, while he tries to steer Hildy back into her old job as his employee as editor of his newspaper.

My Thoughts:
Since I got a couple recommendations for this movie I thought I would start with it. This is a movie I never seen before. But the overview of it sounds like a good movie. I went into this one expecting a terrible quality DVD as this is part of that free 40 movies on 20 DVD classic boxset that Total movie gave away with subscriptions. And those movies range from terrible to watchable when it comes to quality. But in this case I would say it is of good quality. At least on my 20in standard TV. There was a few scenes with some scratches in the film. But that was the worst of it. The movie stars Carey Grant and Rosalind Russell... and this is the only movie I have with either of them. I found that while he seemed to be a good actor... I found I didn't care much for Carey Grant. But I did like Rosalind Russell. I will have to see about getting some more movies with her in it. The movie itself I found I enjoyed quite a bit. I had to laugh at all the problems that Carey Grant's character caused. Though I will say I found the ending to be a bit contrived.

Avatar, a review by Antares

Avatar (2009) 2/5 - In my youth, my favorite band was Yes. Not only did I love their music, but I was completely enthralled with their album covers, which were created by graphic artist Roger Dean. I used to think that it would be so great to have a film based on his atmospheric and fantasy landscapes. Well, 35 years later, James Cameron did it. If I were to rate this film on the technological achievements alone, I would probably rate it 4/5. While it is amazingly beautiful, at times I also found it a bit too much. Kind of like turning a kid loose in a candy store, and eating himself sick. I think that if Cameron could have, for once, set his enormous ego aside, and let someone who knows how to write a good screenplay, take over that part of the film, then this could have been a masterpiece. I can't tell you how many times I cringed listening to the cliched dialog in this worn out story. I can understand the hype, but when all is said and done, it's all just eye candy, that in about another five years, will be forgettable when the next level of graphic CGI emerges. That's the double edge of the special effects sword...eventually, it will look as antiquated as King Kong does today.

My PILOT Marathon, a review by Rich


First aired: 8/26/2003   
The Cougars are tying to save there season, on a two game winning streak that has improved them to 2-3. It's six hours to kick-off and everyone is getting ready for the biggest game of the season so far. Leon Taylor, back from injured reserve, plans to retake the running back throne from rookie Demetrius "DH" Harris, who has been one of the leagues best rushing backs thus far in the season. Coach George must get hard-hitting middle linebacker Eric Olczyk's head together before the game, who is struggling with a hit he put on an opponent two weeks prior.

I know very little about american football, but i found this pilot focused more on character building and was a punchy emotive first showing with the sport as just the background. Fully understand why the series got canned now, it portrays the sport as brutal, ugly, drug ridden and corrupt. I'm sure it stretched the truth somewhat, but the excellent writing and pace of the show was good enough that I shall return to finish the season.
