10,000 BC, Charlie Bartlett, The Spiderwick Chronicles

Posted Monday, June 23, 2008, at 10:53 AM

Another week, another batch of new releases!

10,000 BC

I reviewed this flick in theatres and gave it another chance on DVD. I'm surprised to find out that the graphics really don't hold up on Blu-ray disc and was quite disappointed with some of the rather crappy special effects. Other than that, the original review is still pretty much how I feel on the movie. Check that review out here, http://www.mccookgazette.com/story/13169....

The Spiderwick Chronicles

Another film I reviewed in theatres and still just as awesome as it was then. My favorite release of the week! Check out the original review here, http://www.mccookgazette.com/story/13121....

Charlie Bartlett

With a busy schedule and unforeseen delays such as the disc golf course calling my name, I was unable to find time to preview this flick before it came out. I will be picking it up Tuesday morning when it becomes available for regular renting though as I really want to see it. It looks like a quality flick with a great story. The synopsis says: The kids at Western Summit High have "issues," and newcomer Charlie Bartlett is coming to their rescue. With a briefcase full of prescription pills and a head full of pop psychology, this rebel with a cause brings hilarious help to the student body and unending grief to their neurotic principal, Mr. Gardner (Robert Downey, Jr.).

Suddenly, Charlie is the hottest man on campus and he's even caught the eye of Gardner's sultry daughter. An outrageous send-up of today's Prozac generation, Charlie Bartlett has your prescription for laugh-out-loud insanity!

All the new flicks are available at Movie Gallery in McCook. Check them out!
