Tropic Thunder & Wall-EPosted Tuesday, November 18, 2008, at 4:59 PM
Interestingly enough, nobody won this week - why? Well, the only two people who commented had either won already within the last month and/or do not want the free rental. So - we need new comments from new people. Take the leap, say something, get a free rental. It's simple as can be and all you have to do is comment so join the conversation and let us know what you think!
Reviews for this Week
First up, Wall-E
I watched this animated feature in theatres and was sort of impressed but ultimately a little bored with it. I just finished watching it again on Blu-Ray which makes the film look amazing. The high definition animation looks so real that it's really hard to not be glued to watching the little particle effects pass through the lighting effects. Overall, as predicted in my original article, I enjoyed the flick way more on DVD than I did in theatres and probably mostly due to the fact that I was not tired while watching it. The movie is funny, cute, and definitely worth watching. Check out the original review at http://www.mccookgazette.com/story/14410... and then go rent it today!
Next, Tropic Thunder
Another flick I reviewed in theatres. Review can be found at http://www.mccookgazette.com/story/14614.... This movie just got better on DVD and while I didn't have a chance to watch the unrated edition of it with an extra 20 minutes, I did watch the regular version again and laughed just as much as I did the first time. This is one I'm thinking about buying. It's well worth it just to watch Robert Downey Jr..
The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2
That's right. TWO. I knew about the first but didn't think it was a big enough blip to deserve a sequel, but here it is on DVD without me knowing anything about it. Or at least I choose to block it out. Either way, I didn't get a chance to watch it. Shucks. So, here's a description for those of you who may be interested in such a flick.
Based on Ann Brashares' best-selling series of novels about four young women who share an unbreakable bond through the unpredictable events of their lives, "The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2" catches up with Tibby, Carmen, Bridget and Lena in the months following their first year of college. Having been apart all year, their plans for the summer will take them even further along separate paths as each experiences the freedom, love, choices and challenging life lessons that mark their individual journeys toward adulthood. Now, it will take more than a hurried note or even a treasured pair of pants passed back and forth among them to keep their lives connected.
That's it for this week. Next week we have Hancock and Fred Claus. Come back then for more and remember to rent your flicks at Movie Gallery in McCook for supporting our weekly free rental contest.
