5.0 out of 5 stars A correction about a previous review, Oct. 12 2014
I have to make a correction here. The person that said Don't knock the Rock and Rock Around the Clock copied from Don't Knock the Twist and Twist Around the Clock did not know they were produced five and six years before?! Don't Knock the Rock (1956) and Rock Around the Clock (1956). Don't Knock the Twist (1962) and Twist Around the Clock (1961). I say buy these wonderful originals.

1.0 out of 5 stars Awful, Nov. 17 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Christmas Lodge (DVD)
This movie will satisfy bible thumpers. There is no reason for movies with heavy christian overtones in 2011. The best example of a movie with a spiritual message without thumping us on the head with a bible is the Bishop's Wife with Cary Grant. How come in the 1940s they were capable to make such a movie and in 2011 we are served this drivel by christians foaming at the mouth. They cannot accept that people spirituality relies less and less on religions. The acting was bad, the directing was bad and I am embarrassed to say that this was made in Canada. You can make a good family movie without serving us this type of rubbish. I bought the movie and I will throw it in the garbage. I have a heart and I could not expose another human being to this piece of crap.

This review is from: Prancer DVD Repackage (DVD)
I enjoy this movie every year at christmas time. It is simple and tells the story of a young girl and her love for Prancer which she tries to save. It is a very good family movie for all.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very good remake, Nov. 16 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
It is rare that we see good remakes of classics, but in this case it is a winner. We have to remember that the story had to be adapted to a new era. They did it without losing the beauty of the orginal story, its lessons and the magic. I love it and I listen to both versions every year during the holiday season.

1.0 out of 5 stars So bad!, Nov. 16 2011
This review is from: Bridesmaids (DVD)
I love comedies a lot, but I have to say that in the past 5 years we rarely see a good one. This one is no exception! GOD, IT WAS BAD!!!!! Everything is MORE than predictable and they are not even funny doing it. I felt bad for the main character and that's not suppose to happen when you watch a comedy! We are suppose to laugh when we watch a comedy not feel bad. I had high hopes for this one but the creators of Knocked Up and the other bad comedies strike again. I don't understand how one person can say they laugh from beginning to end. It is beyond my comprehension!!!!!! It seems they try to re-capture the magic of movies like There's Something About Mary and the first few American Pie, just to name these ones, and they fail miserably. I already got rid of my copy.

1.0 out of 5 stars Mediocre, Aug. 1 2011
I watched this version of Halloween the other day and it is a shame that Zombie was allowed to remake this classic horror film. He failed completely and made it a trailer trash bloodbath. Nothing more! I will not watch his remake of Halloween 2. I can honestly say, save your money or go down memory lane and watch the original.

1.0 out of 5 stars Crapola!!!, July 13 2011
This movie has all the cliche that Hollywood can throw in a Alien invasion war movie. The one star was for the aliens. Hollywood is dying because they want to make money more than making good movies. Don't buy or rent this movie because it is not worth it at all and I wish I could get my time and money back. The critic that compared this movie to District 9 should be sued by the writer and the director of District 9.

5.0 out of 5 stars Delightful! :), Dec 14 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This feature film is the type of movie that puts a smile on my face. It is one of my favorite Christmas movie that I watch in the last two weeks prior to Christmas day. It is light hearted and does not pretend to be an oscar contender. It simply lifts your spirit and make you wish you would be part of the cast. If unsure try to rent it and decide if it worth buying it. You might end up making it part of your traditions during the holiday season. Also, Barbara and Dennis were so cute together.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as the previous seasons, Sept. 23 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I was very anxious to see the 5th season, but unfortunately the show's quality is going down. I guess it is not a bad idea that they will stop the show after six seasons. The main actors said they are stopping after their contracts run out. There are some good moments, but this year it is all about their darkness and Dean always doubting Sam. It seems they are out of fresh ideas and they decided to take a dark alley with their characters There are some long scenes that can be aggrevating, you lose sympathy for them and to make matters worse they feel sorry for themselves to the point you wish you could slap them. They are basically in a bad mood 90% of the time and that includes Bobby. I think they are stretching it a bit too much with their deaths and resurrections. I hope for the final season they will do better. We'll have to wait and see!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars So Funny, Sept. 7 2010
I just found out that they cancelled this show... O.o GRRRR!!!! Are they out of their minds!!! It's been a while since I watched a show that is funny. I just don't get it... The Office has been on forever and it is just one HUGE snore fest and this REALLY FUNNY comedy comes along and they cancelled it after 2 seasons. I just wish I had the excutives (commonly call the morons in charge)at front of me so I can bitch slap them until they come to their senses. I want this show back for at least another 5 years. SIGH!!!!!! :(

Buy it because it is just pure silly fun.
