My Thoughts:

This one here is a different kind of romantic comedy as it deals with 2 women falling in love. One knowing she liked girls.... the other one not as they met at her wedding. It is an enjoyable story with a good cast. Definitely one I would recommend.

My Thoughts:

I found this one to be a ok... but not what I would call a great comedy. It has some funny moments in it... but for the most part I just found the characters weird and the story line predictable.

My Thoughts:
Well, i decided it was time for a rewatch. Havent seen this movie in ages, i know the sequal is in the theaters right now and the reviews are great. And i really enjoyed this one. Its a great action flick with a typical revenge story, but they does so much more with it. Keanu Reeves might not be the greatest actor, but he makes a great "John Wick" And there are alot of other interesting names too. And this blurayset offers a great upgrade from the dvd. With great sound and picture. And with some great extras. I enjoyed this so much that i've allready preorded the sequel! Check it out.

My Thoughts:

I found this one to be an entertaining film. Though I did find the humor in it a little dry for my taste. But all the same it has an interesting story. Living here in Kentucky... not far from E-Town it was also fun to see some familiar places and landmarks. And I must say...in this case I think I liked how the movie ended even more so then the entire movie itself. Worth checking out if you never seen it.

The case: rescue the kidnapped daughter of a visiting Hong Kong official. The result: amazing stunts (Chan does his own) and verbal wit (well, Tucker does his own, too!) that delivered a kick to the buddy-cop genre – and gave Chan his long-awaited, mainstream-U.S. breakthrough.

My Thoughts:

This is a film I have always enjoyed. The entire franchise is probably my favorite that Jackie Chan had done. While I never been much of a fan of Chris Tucker... he is good in these films. Definitely worth the time put in to watch.
