My Thoughts:

This one here is a different kind of romantic comedy as it deals with 2 women falling in love. One knowing she liked girls.... the other one not as they met at her wedding. It is an enjoyable story with a good cast. Definitely one I would recommend.

I found this one to be a ok... but not what I would call a great comedy. It has some funny moments in it... but for the most part I just found the characters weird and the story line predictable.

My Thoughts:
Well, i decided it was time for a rewatch. Havent seen this movie in ages, i know the sequal is in the theaters right now and the reviews are great. And i really enjoyed this one. Its a great action flick with a typical revenge story, but they does so much more with it. Keanu Reeves might not be the greatest actor, but he makes a great "John Wick" And there are alot of other interesting names too. And this blurayset offers a great upgrade from the dvd. With great sound and picture. And with some great extras. I enjoyed this so much that i've allready preorded the sequel! Check it out.

My Thoughts:

I found this one to be an entertaining film. Though I did find the humor in it a little dry for my taste. But all the same it has an interesting story. Living here in Kentucky... not far from E-Town it was also fun to see some familiar places and landmarks. And I must say...in this case I think I liked how the movie ended even more so then the entire movie itself. Worth checking out if you never seen it.

My Thoughts:

I found this to be a very entertaining film. It is a good true story... and it has several familiar faces. Unlike most true story films this one doesn't give you any kind of notes on what happened after the story that was told.... and I would have liked to have seen that. But over-all the film easily kept my attention and seemed to go by quickly. Definitely worth the time put in to watch it.

Well, i dont write reviews that often anymore. Mostly because i'm lazy and i found letterboxd. But this movie i decided to rewatch on bluray (saw it first time a few years ago on DVD) and the movie was actually alot better then i rememered it to be. The story is simple but great. Jessica Alba as a blind girl who get new eyes, and stuff happens ofcourse with her and her new eyes. The story had me glued to the tv, and it had some real good and creepy moments trough-out. And the picture and sound was a big step up aswell. This movie was (for me) a real good horror movie. And ofc, who doesnt like Jessica Alba? <3

Discovered buried in the basement of the home of a brutally murdered family, the young Jane Doe — eerily well-preserved and with no visible signs of trauma — is shrouded in mystery. As they work into the night to piece together the cause of her death, the two men begin to uncover the disturbing secrets of her life. Soon, a series of terrifying events make it clear: this Jane Doe may not be dead. The latest from Troll Hunter director Andre Ovredal is a scarily unpredictable, supernatural shocker that never lets up. This chiller also stars Ophelia Lovibond (Guardians Of The Galaxy) and Michael McEhatton (Game Of Thrones).

So, i almost never write reviews anymore, but some movies is just have to say a thing or two about. Good or bad. This movie i've heard some real great things about and really enjoyed the trailer, so when i found it for under $8 it was a no brainer. And i watched the movie last night. And the movie is actually brilliant. Really loved it, the story is real simple, but holy hell. Some awesome moments trough-out. A simple but real good with some amazing spots trough-out. Its a must watch for all horror fans!

My Thoughts:

While a decent movie... I really did expect more from it. It should have been a little less story driven and a little more action. Plus it felt like more of a "continuing adventures" type film then telling the legend of Tarzan. Then there is the fact that they changed Jane's whole background. Worth checking out... but there is definitely better Tarzan movies out there.

My Thoughts:

I remember really enjoying this one back in my early teens when it first came out. I can't say it is quite as good as I remember it being. But I definitely enjoyed every minute of it. Of course I do have a soft spot for '80s horror... after all they are the movies I grew up watching.

Sure, evil children has been done to death. Some probably done better then this one. And more times then not it seems to have to do with an eclipse when the children was born. But that don't take away from the fact that this one is good. It has some creative kills (gotta love the arrow through the peephole!) and a good story.

My Rating:
Out of a Possible 5
