Thursday DVD Review ~ Some New, Some Older

This one I may have to go out and buy for the boys that is if Cole has a good day at school, let's just say I have a mtg with the principal (story for another day). What a cute movie that will actually keep a kid sitting for the whole time. I even was laughing along with it.

When Phil and Debbie Winslow (Lee Pace and Judy Greer) relocate from their native Kansas to the sunny climes of Orange County, their big-hearted, havoc-wreaking Great Dane (voiced by Owen Wilson) gets a taste of the dog's life, California-style. Featuring the voices of Emma Stone, George Lopez and Steve Coogan, this family comedy blends live action and computer animation to bring the-beloved, if slobbery, comic-strip mutt to life.

Another movie I go with because I love the characters and John Cusack is my all time fav. But what a let down, can't believe my life was wasted with night. I was busy doing other things or I may have just flung this out the door. Talk about going over board with the f bomb. I have no prob with swearing but REALLY does every word need to be it. It had no purpose, tons of adult content this was a guy flick.

Fueled by energy drinks, vodka and nostalgia for their younger, wilder days, a group of aging best friends travels back in time to 1987, where they get the chance to relive the best year of their lives. And their time machine? Well, it's a hot tub. John Cusack, Rob Corddry, Craig Robinson, Clark Duke, Crispin Glover and Sebastian Stan co-star in this out-of-the-box comedy that takes time travel to a whole new level.

Another Scooby Doo the boys just of course had to rent it for them. I had to sneak it out to return it to the mail box. You can't go wrong with Scooby Doo.

It's a race to escape when Scooby-Doo and his friends get stuck inside a video game. While sneaking a peek at a laser game based on their own adventures, Scooby and the Mystery Inc. gang are beamed inside the program by a mayhem-causing, menacing monster known as the Phantom Virus. Now, the game must advance successfully through all 10 levels and defeat the virus if Shaggy, Freddy, Daphne and Velma ever plan to see the real world again.

I love Nicolas Cage but this movie was just to far out for me. It was like a modern day batman but with normal people trying to save the day. The language just was over the top and made you wonder really did we keep need going there. Some parts I really just wanted to say really?

Inspired by his love of comic books, high school student Dave Lizewski (Aaron Johnson) decides to transform himself into a masked crime fighter -- a decision that eventually thrusts the teenager into Internet stardom. Soon, Dave's antics inspire a wave of would-be heroes to don costumes and live out their superhero fantasies. Nicolas Cage, Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Chloe Moretz also star in this comic book adaptation from director Matthew Vaughn.

This is for Rick, not a movie I enjoyed sometimes I wonder why a movie has to go to such extremes to make you laugh. Rick enjoyed it laughed and thought it was a good movie, I got to go to bed early :).

Put-upon Aaron (Chris Rock) is always plagued by drama and dysfunction, but he encounters more than he can handle while attempting to plan his father's funeral. What's a family gathering without jealousy, tension and blackmail? Martin Lawrence, Tracy Morgan, Danny Glover, James Marsden, Luke Wilson, Zoe Saldana, Regina Hall and Columbus Short round out a stellar ensemble cast. Neil LaBute directs.

I love Alyssa Milano and when I saw this pop up on Lifetime I just had to check it out. Talk about ups and down and one smart lady! Now all her choices weren't the best but she made right in the end.

A drama centered around Patty Montanari, the widowed mother of two who went to work for her lover Frank Russo, a captain in a Brooklyn crime family.
Yet again these are my opinions from movies I watched this week either TV or from my personal Netflix account that I pay for. One day hey I may get a free month or so but for now I pay for it!


  1. I heard that Hot Tub Time Machine was funny the way Porkies was funny....sooo if you don't like crass, sex humor then you probably won't like it. I am not going to waste my money.
    I am looking forward to Kick Ass though as I appreciate the darker side of things (won't be letting my kids near it though).

  2. We have a couple of these on our list too!

  3. I loved Marmaduke!! It was pretty cute. My kids laughed through the whole movie. Thanks for great reviews!! I always trust your judgement!

  4. I agree with the one * for the Hot Tub movie, it was so bad. I did enjoy Death at a Funeral. Haven't seen the others yet.

  5. I love seeing what is out there is to watch.. Have a great day..

  6. I love coming here everyday but especially a thursday for dvd reviews, great movies thanks dear xx

  7. I saw Hot Tub Time Machine at the theater and I loved it!!! I laughed like crazy, but then again, I'm not viewing it as a parent of small children so language and things like that kinda go over my head these days.

  8. The kids liked Marmaduke and that Scooby Doo, too. Haven't seen the rest.

  9. Omg we have watched Marmaduke more times than I can count. Such a cute movie. I need to check out the Alyssa Milano movie, Love her!
