My Thoughts:

It's been a long week (considering it's only Wednesday!) for me and an even longer day at work today and I came home beat. I was reclining in my chair after dinner, feeling sleepy but I decided to put in this movie and watch a little bit before I would inevitably doze off. Didn't happen.   :tv:

What an excellent movie! I was completely fascinated by this true story about a group of women P.O.W.'s in a Japanese prison camp during WWII. An outstanding cast led by Glenn Close and including Frances McDormand, Julianna Margulies and Cate Blanchett, these remarkable women persevered and kept themselves alive largely through the spirit of song. Many of the women and children died due to the deplorable treatment by their captors who believed women to be inferior but a core group of them beat the odds.

A must watch!  :clap:

Goosebumps: Say Cheese and Die, a review by addicted2dvd



Goosebumps: Say Cheese and Die
Say Cheese And Die
Greg Banks, and his friends, Doug and Shari, decide to sneak into the old Coffman house. While exploring, Greg stumbles onto a hidden cabinet with a rather large and odd camera inside and decides to take a picture. Greg soon begins to realize that this camera takes pictures of the future and causes bad things to happen...

Say Cheese And Die...Again
Greg's English teacher, Mr. Saur, is a real grouch. He just gave Greg a big fat "F" on his oral report about the camera he found last summer. He didn't believe the stories about the pictures it took and the evil things that happened. Now Greg has dug up the camera and bad things are happening, really bad things...just like the first time.


Brittany's Thoughts:
I thought that this was an okay couple of episodes. What happened in the episodes were awesome, but I had trouble with the believability of it. One thing I also didn't like was how all of the horrible stuff happened and all that happened to the teacher was that he lost his hair. I think it was stupid to dig it up for an A on a school assignment (in the second one) anyway.

My Thoughts:
These episodes were ok... but far from great. putting aside the believability that Brittany talked about... the continuation from one episode to the second was almost non-existent... at least with the answer to the problem.. as they didn't even try to save themselves the way it worked in the first episode... you would think that would have been the first thing they would try.

Pete's Pilots, a review by addicted2dvd



The Dukes of Hazzard
The General Lee is tanked up, revving and ready. Bo Duke is at the wheel. Cousin Luke rides shotgun. And all roads lead to fun when you travel with The Dukes of Hazzard.

One-Armed Bandit
Sheriff Coltrane is hissier then a sack of rattlesnakes! He sets up a slot machine operation to fund his election, but a pair of two-armed bandits - Bo and Luke - find a way to give tha proceeds to charity.

My Thoughts:
While this is one of my favorite shows from when I was a Kid... It took a while for the show to get going. I for one never cared too much for the first season. At this point the characters were not yet set in the way they will be. Especially Cooter who is played more crazy and dumber then he is in the following seasons. But it is still an enjoyable show. Best thing about the pilot episode? Daisy in that bikini of course!  :drooling:
