With her magnifying glass and fingerprint powder in hand, Nancy Drew leaves River Heights for Hollywood...but not to meet that guy on Smallville, as her boyfriend Ned fears. No, she's out to solve one of the greatest mysteries ever: the death of movie star Dehlia Draycott. But the bigger mystery is how our perky, plaid-clad sleuth will fit in with the text-messaging teen queens of mean she meets at Hollywood High.

Join Emma Roberts as Nancy in this timeless girl detective mystery as she finds danger, adventure and romance. Because wherever Nancy goes, excitement follows.

My Thoughts:
Brittany and I decided to watch one of her DVDs each day of the long weekend since she has been off since Friday. We both seen the movie before... but I haven't watched the DVD so staying with in my theme. While this is a somewhat silly family movie... especially how Nancy Drew acts and dresses like she is still in the '50s... it is unlike the silliness that is in Big Top Pee-wee... this silliness is just plain fun to me. But that could be from the fact that I have been a fan of the character many years. And I just found this to be a fun (spoof) addition to the Nancy Drew character. However, I would have liked to seen a more straight mystery (minus the comedy/spoofing) movie for the character. While this was worth watching to me... I don't think it would be of much interest to someone that isn't already a fan of the character.

My Thoughts:
I been trying to decide if I was in the mood for the next Darkman movie for a while now. But when I seen that Renee O'Connor was in this one I wanted to check it out since I renewed my interest in her since I been watching Xena again. Going into this one I couldn't remember if I have ever seen it before or not. I liked how at the beginning of this movie it sort of reminds you what happen in part 1. I was a little concerned that I would be somewhat lost since it has been years since I watched the first one. And I have to admit. I found it a bit weird to see Renee O'Connor in a role other then Gabrielle. And I am talking through-out the entire movie it was just strange seeing Gabrielle in modern clothes and wondered where Xena was when she was in trouble.  :P But I definitely enjoyed this one. It was a good continuation for the characters.

Pete's Pilots, a review by addicted2dvd

Fresh Prince of Bel-Air
When a brash street kid from Philly moves to a Left Coast zip code even posher than 90210, cultures are sure to clash. But not to worry. The kid is Will Smith, and he'll have Bel-Air bustin' a move in no time! Smith was already a Grammy-winning rap artist when he shot to acting renown as the smart, wisecracking urban teen who's sent to live with wealthy relatives in an area so exclusive a former President drops in to share some Christmas cheer. This 4-disc DVD collection features lively bonus material plus all 24 Season-One Episodes, from Will's first day at the country club (which one is the fish fork?) to his first day at Bel-Air Prep School (sort of homeboy meets Harvard). When it comes to comedy, Fresh Prince rules!

The Fresh Prince Project
Will comes to live with his aunt and uncle in Bel-Air. Philip isn't too impressed by Will's behavior, especially teaching Ashley to rap and ruining his image with the members of the law firm. Vivian tries to remain neutral in all this. Carlton and Hilary look at Will with disdain.

My Thoughts:
I haven't watched this show in quite a while. So today I am reminded how funny this show is. One of these days I will have to get more season sets in my collection. As of now I only have the first season. This pilot episode is a good introduction to the characters. And I found myself laughing more then once.
