Just some quick reviews on the stuff I’ve been consuming lately!
DVD Rentals would include:
· “The Tooth Fairy”-The best things about this movie were the DVD cover, and the line “Hey Chuck?….Why’s your penis over there?”. The premise is good-A witch, who used to trick children into her home by promising a present for each lost tooth they might bring her and would instead reward them with dismemberment & disemboweling, is now haunting the present reincarnation of her old homestead, a renovated Bed & Breakfast. The acting is bad, the editing/overdubbing is horrible, and the acting is bad-did I mention that? Craig picked this dud-finally, it’s not me that picked the crappy, “we’ll never get these two hours back again” movie! Yay! (eep! I just realized-it was me that picked this movie. *hangs head in shame* Craig picked “Severed,” the last dud we watched…)
· “Inside Man”-Kickass! This movie was great from the opening credits to the end. Denzel Washington & Jodie Foster star in this film about a complicated bank heist. The plotline was exciting, and really held our attention with several unique twists & turns. The sound score was AMAZING. Craig and I both are now completely hooked on “Chaiyya, Chaiyya”-Bollywood version, and can’t get it out of our heads. (The name of the artist escapes me.) Anyway, this is totally worth a rent if you haven’t already seen it, and if you have a home theater with surround sound, crank it up as the film starts so you can dance around your living room!!
· “Scary Movie 4”-I am of the opinion that you either love the “Scary Movie” genre or you hate it. There’s no in-between. Craig and I enjoy them-being huge horror movie buffs, it’s fun to see the parodies, and the potty humor cracks us up. “Scary Movie 4” is no exception. This is a good rainy Saturday afternoon flick-definitely worth a rent!
Books would include:
· “Good Omens,” authored by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaimen-I’m soooo glad I changed my mind and read this book. It was great! This interesting & entertaining fictional work is about Armageddon, and the baby AntiChrist, who is left with the wrong family. Witchfinders, witches, prophetesses, demons and angels, as well as a handful of ordinary, everyday eleven year olds, all play a part in this humorously told story of destruction and grace. I definitely would recommend this book to any previous fans of fantasy, as well as to those on the cusp who like their humour a bit dry & British.
Last week I did some shopping at B & N, and picked up the first book in Laurell K. Hamilton’s Anita Blake Vampire Hunter series, as well as the first book in her Meredith Gentry faerie series. *happydance* It looked like they carried all the books in both series, so I’m a very happy girl. I’ve been meaning to get started on her stuff for a long time. I also picked up a book called “Benighted” about werewolves, and another vampy book.
