    Thank you, Cyber Girl. Amusing story about aging superheros, sharing a boring existence in a retirement home where they begin to suspect a nefarious plot is developing right under their noses. Tom Berenger and the rest of the main actors did their best to elevate the film, but while the basic concept was promising the screenplay seemed disjointed. Nonetheless, it did have some fun sequences to remember, and am glad I got to see it. Best regards, Dana

    Thank you, Cyber Girl. Another entertaining adventure from LEGO-Land, featuring an expanded Bat-crew out to take on the latest menace to tranquility. Although I do enjoy these continuing stories and impressive animation efforts, I feel they lose a bit of impact with Troy Baker voicing Batman instead of the gravely-pitched Will Arnett. Here also, the dialogue was not as snappy as expected, seeming a little diluted from other entries in the LEGO-Batman series of films. Still enjoyable. Best regards, Dana

    Thank you Barry and Cyber Girl. Excellent remake of 2004's Hellboy, complete with strange characters, creepy evil-ones, and horrific monsters. Although David Harbour did not have the on-screen presence of Ron Perlman, he played the Hellboy role convincingly. Milla Jovovich is always great, and here as the reincarnated vengeful witch Nimue, she displayed her typical cool and calculating persona. Lots of furious action, plenty of candid bloodshed, and an ending that predictably demanded a sequel. My kind of movie. Best regards, Dana

    Thank you, Barry and Cyber Girl. Kid-level animated feature, filled with life-lessons and songs about accepting yourself and building fortitude. Imaginative animation, building on a simple-but-effective story. Adults may get bored, but children will love it. Best regards, Dana

    Thank you, Cyber Girl. Unique story of two teens grappling with an unexpected trip back in time to the 50's, where they change life for the inhabitants of a small town. Clever effects combined with some surprise turns of events made for a captivating two hours. Before Tobey Maguire became Peter Parker in three Spider-Man films, he starred here as the nerdy teenager who knew virtually everything about Pleasantville except how to return to the present. Look for Paul Walker in an early movie role as the captain of the high-school basketball team. Exceptional fun. Best regards, Dana

    Thank you, Cyber Girl. Familiar theme about downtrodden teens encouraged toward greatness by a high-school teacher seeking purpose in life. Although not usually a fan of George Lopez, I was impressed with how well he played the mentor in this film. Definitely a feel-good movie for the whole family, especially since it was based on real-life events. Best regards, Dana

    Thank you Cyber Girl. Adventure story about a pompous British explorer trying to find proof of the Sasquatch, and a personable Bigfoot just wanting to find others like himself for companionship. Some very impressive animation details plus clever humorous situations made this a truly fun movie. Great choices for voice actors. Best regards, Dana P.S. Thanks to Barry for the additional HQ links, much appreciated.

    Thank you, Barry. This is a great addition to the LEGO series of films, seeming to get better and better with each new release. Really enjoyed this one, made particularly memorable with the 3D effect. Although I would have preferred 10-minutes more of LEGO action rather than the 13-minutes of end credits, no complaints here. Best regards, Dana

    Thank you, Cyber Girl! Intense drama depicting the individual struggles to survive in a dystopian setting caused by a drought, most turning to illegal activities to support their lifestyles. Reminiscent of films set in the Australian outback, stark and brutal. Despite the low budget and lackluster ending, the engaging story and competent acting held my attention throughout. Liked it. Best regards, Dana

    Thank you, Cyber Girl. Decent western featuring Sharon Stone as a tough-but-vulnerable survivor, seeking revenge against an evil town boss played by Gene Hackman. The gunfights did seem a little too clean, and the pace a bit uneven, but the individual performances overcame those minor shortcomings. Great cast, enjoyable film. Best regards, Dana.

    Thank you, Cyber Girl. Captivating story about the beginning and eventual resolution of a soul band, using the James Brown group as the level in which to aspire. Watching the difficulties in finding suitable members was fun, plus seeing the band develop musically as personality conflicts escalated was entertaining. Enjoyable film, really nice copy. Best regards, Dana

    Thank you, Barry. This is a great entry in the Marvel superhero series in standard 2D form, made even more memorable with the added 3D effect. Great copy, appreciate your posting it for us to enjoy. The CGI work in this film was quite impressive, and combining it with a solid and intriguing story, it fit in very nicely with the Avengers ongoing sequence of events. Particularly fun seeing the exposure of the Flerken. Best regards, Dana

    Thank you, Cyber Girl! Stark and disturbing tale centered around a young deaf girl imprisoned in a brothel filled with unwilling women being kept against their will to serve the owner's demands. Probably the most memorable portrayal of this scenario I have yet to see, intense and brutal, but with a somewhat satisfying ending. Not for everyone. Best regards, Dana

    Thank you, Cyber Girl. Hollywood spectacular for the time, complete with period-correct singing and dancing. Fun to see how movies were produced in 1933 as opposed to today, and what was considered dramatic acting by the standards of the past. The dancers were unbelievably energetic, and the synchronized routines were a real treat to watch. Best regards, Dana

    Thank you, Cyber Girl. Made-for-TV movie about teen struggles for power through popularity, and the effects the perceived power had upon them. Not much in the way of action or violence, but the escalating psychological tension and scheming among the principal characters was enough to hold my interest through to the surprisingly-dynamic conclusion. Seemed a bit over-rated on IMDb, but was still worth a one-time viewing for me. Best regards, Dana
