My Thoughts:
I just finished this one. I picked it up because I have become a fan of Anne Hathaway's over the past few years. I found this one to be a pretty decent movie... maybe slightly above average.... but it definitely could have been better. The main problem I had with this one is that I couldn't get myself to care all that much about the characters. The closest being Anne Hathaway's character and then I found I didn't care about her as much as I should have. In my honest opinion both the brides in this film seemed to be little more then spoiled... yes the wedding day is all about the bride and what she wants. I agree with that fully. But no planned event... not even a wedding goes off completely perfect. And they made it so that neither one of these girls would budge even in the slightest. Which did nothing but make the characters seem unlikable. But over-all an entertaining movie. I can see myself watching this one again at some point.

My Thoughts:
Going into this one I didn't think this would be my type of movie... but it has an actress I am a fan of. That being Anne Hathaway. I didn't care much for her character in this one though. But to be honest I didn't care for many of the characters at all. That being said... its not a bad movie... it definitely have its moments. An average film really... worth the time put in to watch it... but not one I see myself watching often.

     Teen Wolf (1985/United States)
IMDb |Wikipedia |Trailer |
Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios, Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment
Director:Rod Daniel
Writing:Jeph Loeb [Joseph Loeb III] (Writer), Matthew Weisman (Writer)
Length:92 min.
Rating:PG
Video:Widescreen 1.85:1
Audio:English: DTS-HD Master Audio: Mono, Spanish: Dolby Digital: Mono, French: Dolby Digital: Mono
Subtitles:English, French, Spanish

Stars:
Michael J. Fox as Scott Howard
James Hampton as Harold Howard
Susan Ursitti as Boof
Jerry Levine as Stiles
Matt Adler as Lewis
Lorie Griffin as Pamela

Plot:
What's a high school kid got to do to be popular? Just let down his hair and howl! Starring Michael J. Fox (Back to the Future), Teen Wolf is an outrageous comedy about a shy teenager with more than a changing voice to contend with...he's a budding young werewolf! And when his newfound powers help him score at basketball — and with the popular girls — he has some pretty hairy decisions to make.

Extras:


    My Thoughts:
    OK... lets face it... Teen Wolf is far from award winning entertainment. But what it is... is good cheesy fun. Something to watch when you just want to sit back and enjoy. It is a real twist on the coming of age story. I think the whole werewolf idea is why I enjoy it so much... I definitely enjoy the monster movies... whether you can classify them as horror or not.

    My Thoughts:

    I really enjoyed this one... it may actually be my favorite in the trilogy. While it is definately more of the same fun, it also has a little something extra that the first two did not. I liked how this one it wasn't someone after the tablet like in the first two... but them rushing to figure out what is wrong with the tablet. So when they changed up the story a little it was like they breathed new life into it. Watching this one it felt like the last one in the series... which disappoints me a little as I would have liked to seen one or two more. Not like they couldn't find more people from history to bring to life. I personally would have liked to seen one where they brought the tablet to a wax museum... where they could have done both celebrities as well as fictional characters such as Dracula, The Wolfman, Frankenstein... etc. etc. etc. Anyway... definitely worth the time to watch it... especially if you liked the first two.

    Larry Guthrie is a fun-loving guy with a serious mission: to win back Brooke, the love of his life. But when Larry upsets a small boy with a loose tooth where Brooke works, he's "sentenced" to become a real tooth fairy.

    My Thoughts:

    To be quite honest I really wasn't expecting too much from this one. While it is not as good as the first film I found I enjoyed it quite a bit. Larry the Cable Guy was the same exact character that you expect from him in pretty much everything you see him in. But there is a few laughs to be had here. I would say this one is worth the time put in to watch it.... but at the same time I would say it isn't for everyone.

    My Thoughts:

    I always thought the trailer for this one looked good... so was happy when I found it cheap in a used store. I found when I watched it that I enjoyed it quite a bit. It has a fun storyline and I like the cast and their characters. The only thing I didn't care for here was the ending itself. The ending wasn't bad enough to ruin the film, but it did have me shaking my head. It was as if they knew the story they knew the story they wanted to tell but just didn't know how to go about ending it... and felt like they basically went with the first thing that popped in their mind.

    My Thoughts:

    This is a TV movie that originally aired on ShowtimeI haven't seen this one since it originally aired over 20 years ago. Going into this one all I really really remembered is I enjoyed it quite a bit. While I didn't enjoy it quite as much as I remembered... I still enjoyed it quite a bit and glad I finally have it in my collection. The first of the stories is by far my favorite. The other two... while not as good... are still rather enjoyable.This film is worth the hour and a half you need to put in to watch it. But it is not the best anthology horror I have seen.

    My Thoughts:

    This is an entertaining film.... I liked the characters and the storyline. This one is based on not one... but 2 true stories. The life of Julia Child as well as on Julie Powell. An inspiring writer who wrote a blog about making all the recipes in the Julia Child cook book in one year.The one thing I didn't care for is Julia Child's reaction to what Julie was doing. But I guess it can't always go as expected when what you are watching is a true story... as life does not always go good. Worth the time put in to watch it.... though there is better movies out there.

      My Thoughts:

      I been curious about this film since the first time I saw the trailer. Not being familiar with the books... this film is my introduction to this story. I enjoyed it quite a bit... but at the same time I found I was expecting a little more from it, But I really can't put my finger on what it was that bothers me here. It is definitely worth the time put in to watch it... but at the same time I found my mind wondering off and on throughout the entire film.

      My Thoughts:

      I have been a fan of Melissa McCarthy for a while now so wanted to check out this film. While not great... I found it to be quite enjoyable. It has a few good laughs... but you really have to throw believability out the window. If you can do that there is definitely some fun to be had here.

      My Thoughts:

      This is a film I haven't seen since I was a kid... but for some reason remained in my mind as a fun movie. That was about all I could remember about it. Well today we got to watch this one which I was excited going into it. Luckily I did not expect too much going in. I actually found I loved every minute of this film! The cast did a fantastic job... the story line and characters were all a lot of fun and surprisingly for such an old movie... the special effects on this film was great! And I must say... if I wasn't told ahead of time that Michael McBride was played by Sean Connery I would have never recognized him! This is one film I highly recommend!

      It has been years since I seen this one...I am so glad I upgraded to blu-ray which made me want to watch it again. As I forgot how much I enjoyed it. This one has a good story with likable characters. I especially liked Epps and Katie and their interaction. This is well worth the time put in to watch it... definitely recommended.
