John Krasinski as Adam Carlson
Drew Barrymore and John Krasinski star in this incredible rescue adventure – the amazing true story that inspired the world and captured the hearts of millions. When a family of whales is trapped by rapidly forming ice in the Arctic Circle, a small-town reporter (Krasinski) and an animal-loving volunteer (Barrymore) rally an unlikely coalition of Alaskan natives, oil tycoons and the Russian and American military to set aside their differences and free the whales before it's too late. Kristen Bell, Dermot Mulroney and Ted Danson costar in this charming feel-good movie that the whole family can enjoy!
My Thoughts:When I saw this one at the library... I got it because Drew Barrymore is in it. That plus the fact that I enjoy a good film based on true stories. and this was definitely a good one. While I have seen better films of it's type (Dolphin Tale comes to mind)... this one is well worth the time put in to watch it. And for me personally there is the plus that Kristen Bell (Veronica Mars) is also in this film. As I am a big fan of her's as well.

Jingle All the Way, a review by DJ Doena
Jingle All the Way
Arnold Schwarzenegger ... Howard Langston
Sinbad ... Myron Larabee
Phil Hartman ... Ted Maltin
Rita Wilson ... Liz Langston
Robert Conrad ... Officer Hummell
Martin Mull ... D.J.
Jake Lloyd ... Jamie Langston
James Belushi ... Mall Santa
The only thing Howard Langston has to think about is getting his son a "Turbo Man" doll, the most wanted present this year. But he blows it and he tries to get one on Christmas Eve - a Mission Impossible.
This one I didn't like that much, mainly because of the absurd action sequence at the end and the little "Annie".

The Defiant crew land on a planet, where they meet descendents of themselves. As it turns out, they will catapulted back two hundred years when trying to leave the planet and crashland there.
Now they have deal with the dilemna that avoiding the accident which brings them back in time would result that the colony of 8000 people will never have existed.
A well executed episode which I always enjoyed.
