The Day the Earth Stopped, a review by Rich

The day the earth stopped

C. Thomas Howell and Judd Nelson star in this sci-fi thriller that finds the citizens of planet Earth forced to prove their worth or else suffer complete and total annihilation. As hundreds of enormous intergalactic robots appear in major cities throughout the world, the future of our civilization hinges on our ability to convince the invaders that our sole purpose in life isn't to spread suffering and misery while laying waste to the planet that has nurtured our species. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide

This was bought for me at xmas, mistakenly by some kind relative thinking it was the Keanu Reeves film.
It is cringeworthingly awful, dreadful in every sense of the word and can only have been made and released to dupe people into viewing it on the back of the aforementioned epic. It doesn't even have the crass appeal of a B movie, the effects are ridiculous, storyline paltry and acting shocking. Will they ever learn that flashing womens boobs and butts will not save a film this awful, it should have been scrapped before the first line was ever recorded.
The only 'highlight' in such a meagre effort is the appearance of Sinead McCafferty, now she really is hot despite not being able to act for toffee!

When his flight is rerouted to Wichita, he reluctantly partners with Del Griffith (Candy), an obnoxious yet loveable salesman. Together, they embark on a cross-country adventure that includes various modes of transportation, hilarious mishaps, and unforgettable rental car shenanigans.

Planes, Trains and Automobiles is "a screwball comedy with a heart" (Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times). Loaded with special features, the"Those Aren't Pillows!" Edition is a perfect holiday treat that lasts all year.

My Thoughts:

This is a good movie.. though I must admit I didn't find it as funny as I remembered it being from when I first seen it back in my teens. But definitely worth the time put in to watch it. Matter of fact... I can see myself watching this one every year for my Thanksgiving marathon.

Tom's TV Pilots marathon, a review by Tom

     Everybody Hates Chris: Season One (2005/United States)
IMDb | Wikipedia

(United States)
Length:446 min.
Video:Anamorphic Widescreen 1.78
Audio:English: Dolby Digital 5.1, English: Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo

Inspired by his childhood experiences, comedian Chris Rock narrates the hilarious, touching story of a teenager growing up as the eldest of three children in Brooklyn, New York during the early 1980s. Uprooted to a new neighborhood and bused into a predominantly Italian middle school two hours away by his strict, hard-working parents, Chris (Tyler James Williams) struggles to keep his everyday trials and traumas in check as he thinks, talks or runs his way through one growing experience after another, both at home and at school. This debut volume of 'Everybody Hates Chris' on DVD contains all 22 Season One episodes of this acclaimed comedy series.

Everybody Hates Chris
1.01 Everybody Hates the Pilot

This is the first time I ever saw an episode of this series, even though I have had the first season for some years now. I had bought it on a blind buy. The episode was okay, but I won't be hurrying to watch the rest.
