On to the reviews -
I had a chance to watch this one in theatres and enjoyed it enough that I was excited for the DVD release. After watching it again, I'm still excited. This was a very well done remake of the hit TV series and I highly recommend it. Check out the original review at http://www.mccookgazette.com/story/14391....
Fraggle Rock: The Complete Series
This is a box set of the entire series of Fraggle Rock. Fraggle Rock was a popular puppets TV show that mixed lots of original music into its shows. I was never a huge fan of the TV show as a youngster, but my daughter loves the show now and I am forced to watch more times than I would like. However, I must admit that I am becoming a bit of a fan. The music really is top-notch and although I'm not a big fan of puppets - at least they did a really good job with them in this show. Overall - if you've never experienced Fraggle Rock, this might not be the way to go - maybe check out one or two episodes on the internet before jumping into the complete series or picking up one of the individual series box sets that have already been released. But - if you are a fan, this set has everything you could possibly want including a full 20 discs of content and over 2 hours of never before seen content.
Shrek the Halls
Didn't watch it because it was a direct to DVD Shrek Holiday movie and it didn't even make me want to see it. If someone else has seen it, feel free to post your review in the comments.
This is a flick I didn't have a chance to see - description follows:
Roy (Woody Harrelson) and Jessie (Emily Mortimer) are the perfect American couple traveling from Beijing to Moscow on the legendary Trans-Siberian Express Train. The two strike a bond with another couple, Carlos (Eduardo Noriega) and Abby (Kate Mara), who are not exactly as they appear. Unwittingly, Roy and Jessie are caught in a web of drug trafficking and murderous deceit when all four become targets of ex-KGB detective Grinko's (Ben Kingsley) investigation.
Kung Fu Panda
Supposed to come out this week, but not Tuesday. This one is getting a funny release date for Sunday November 9th and I plan on reviewing it for next week's blog post. Stay tuned.
That's it for this week. I want to thank all the people who participated in our movie discussions last week in the comments and I invite you all to join in the friendly discussion of your favorite flicks.
