Sharlene recently ordered me a copy of Disney's 'That Darn Cat' (the original version) and I was really kind of dubious about watching it. It turned out to be an absolute hoot and it had me laughing out loud through the entire film. :lol:

Can't go wrong with classic Disney :)

Tony, I haven't seen that one in ages! I'll have to get it from the library or Netflix to watch again. :D

Just picked up a few movies from the library. Hatfields & McCoys with Kevin Costner, Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter and The Raid: Redemption. Don't know if I'll get up the nerve to watch the last one. When I was in New Mexico on a girls' trip, a waiter overheard me mention that I like kung-fu movies. Turns out he did too and he very animatedly told us about a movie he was going to see that night, which is the last one on my list. He made it sound pretty gory though. Kung-fu I like, gory, not so much.

Got that out of the library a couple of nights ago. Watched about 20 minutes of it, then gave up. Kung Fu Hustle it ain't! The kung fu might have been good, but I didn't wait that long. Not trying to put you off though ;)

Good to know! I'm the same way. I need to see something good quickly or I lose interest. Tried watching Little Big Soldier. Love Jackie Chan movies! But, I got bored before I got to any good action scenes.

Well, there was action, it just wasn't kung fu. More like cutting people in two with machine guns. Maybe they had to resort to kung fu when they ran out of bullets :roll: Not a good film!

Thanks Dotsie! I think I'm just going to pass on that one.

Has anyone seen Duck Dynasty? It's a "reality" show. I usually don't watch those but my father in law talked us into watching it while we were visiting. There were actually some hysterical moments.

It shows the lives of the Robertson family, which went from poverty to being wealthy due to the sales of their duck calls, primarily the Duck Commander.

The family business began in a dilapidated shed, where Phil Robertson spent 25 years making duck calls from Louisiana cedar trees. His son Willie is now the CEO of the company.

The new Judge Dredd film I found was similar all the action taking place in a block,I had see the raid the week before Dredd, a nice little twist at the end of the film in the Raid. :mrgreen:

We watched Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Slayer. Entertaining enough to watch the whole thing, but not fabulous. Kind of like the book was.

I've just watched the latest episode of Uchuu Kyoudai (space brothers) and I so want the dvd but I doubt that it will ever get released for the UK market but I'm hoping for either a region 1 or slightly cheaper region 0 release but I've got a long wait ahead of me to find out either way it's 52 episodes long and so far 37 episode have been aired

I recently saw this trailer, ( 5 min ago) ;) .

Evil Dead fans what do you think? WARNING, the trailer's not too bad but if you're not into horror be careful.
