    Oh why am I just seeing this. Really enjoyable.

  • Aladdin 1992

    ★★★★★ Added

    For whatever reason when I go to the theater I never see animated movies, something I need to change. One of them that I did go see was Aladdin and I loved it. Then it came out on VHS, there was a time when if our TV had only played Aladdin for 24 hours no one would have cared. That's how much we watched it. Beauty and the Beast is my favorite animated film, but Aladdin would be interchangeable with…

    Disturbing at rare loss for words :(

  • The Nut Job 2014

    ★★★ Added

    I personally thought the animation was good. I was bored 20 minutes in and hated the voices at first, but by the end I liked the film. The women are fine in their roles Katherine Heigl and Maya Rudolph. The guys is where the problems come in.

    Will Arnet sounds too old and gruff for Surly imo. He sounds like he only has one winter left to live anyways. But the voice grew on me.

    Liam Neeson sounds really generic…

  • Lost for Life 2013

    ★★★ Added

    A documentary that examines the lives of teens that have been sentenced to life as a new law gives some an opportunity to have cases reheard.

    I took Criminal Psychology and I feel those classes really enhance these type of films, as they add different layers to your thinking. At least to mine. It use to be so much easier to write people off who had committed violent crimes. Now I take more things into higher consideration, such as abuse…

  • Grease 1978

    Guy defies peer pressure in coming of age film to land girl of his dreams or Single white male tries to get top shelf Aussie Booty, I mean Beauty.

    Product placement: Reese’s Pieces and various others.

    I have always loved the animated openings for this and Blacula.

    These are some old looking students, none of my teachers even looked as old as these students when I was in High school.

    So I’m enjoying the movie and the first mental interruption…

  • Crime After Crime 2011

    ★★★★ Added

    Heartbreaking documentary. The only way to watch this without a box of tissues is to not be human. Corruption in the LA District Attorneys office leads to a plea bargain, which cost a woman most of her life in jail. Its not that she was innocent of her crime, but she ends up serving 27 years when she should have only gotten 6 years or all things considered less.

    When you study Criminal Justice you learn about many of the…

  • The Taking of Deborah Logan 2014

    ★★★ Added 2

    I Knew Jill Larson could deliver in this role. I watched her for years on All My Children and I knew she could act, but sheesh. I'm in my 30s and I almost got up and cut this off because it was close to bed time and I was getting creeped out. This movie was setting up perfectly,but then it dives overboard because it felt the need to explain itself and wrap things up too nicely. I'd have preferred only…

  • Ouija 2014

    ★★★ Added

    I always loved that old 80s film Witchboard, have wondered when another good Ouija film would come along. After learning this was produced by Platinum Dunes and PG 13 I went in with lowered expectations, in fact after reading that I almost cancelled, but this was pretty decent and I am sure the lowered expectations helped.

    (THERE ARE TOO MANY JUMP SCARES)

    All of the rules are there, never play with the board alone, always say goodbye. This could have…
