The Messengers-

I wanted to see this in the movie theater. Dirk thought it looked cheesy, I thought it looked good. Once it came out on video we kept forgetting to rent it. Then it came on Showtime Saturday.

Ok, so Dirk was right. It was sort of cheesy. First the baby sees the ghosts, then the daughter and finally the parents at the end when the murderer comes to light. I don’t want to elaborate too much in case you haven’t see it. It was better than The Condemed but wow, I need to see a really good movie.

Anybody know of 1 or 2 or 98? LOL


The Condemed (Movie #2)

Talk about bad! Let me summarize this as quickly as possible.
10 convicts (including our hero Steve Austin) are put on an island to fight to the death. The winner is set free. Oh and it’s only shown over the internet. Okay that’s as much as I can summarize without just feeling bad. This was a bloody, bad movie.

Ok- so I blogged about it, enough said. Save your money, don’t rent it and wait for it to come out on Cable. I saw it on Showtime. I’d say wait till it comes to TNT or TBS..that way it might be edited- for the better too LOL

Movie #1 of 101

I think that’s what I have it at. I really haven’t sat down to watch many movies unless you count catching some on the tail end or watching them part of the way through. The first one that I’ve sat down and watched since I started this list is a horrible movie called Soul Survivors. It had Casey Affleck and Wes Bentley in it. Now I’m not a huge fan of Casey’s and this is only the second movie I’ve ever seen with Wes Bentley. The first one was Ghost Rider. I do have to say that he’s perfect for those other worldly bad guys. But anyways. I’m going to condense this because I don’t feel it’s worth a long drawn out post.

Four friends go to a party, on the way back, they have a wreck. Two die, One survives and the other is caught in another world. She struggles to make sense of it and sees/hears the boyfriend that survived. It takes her to the end and some pretty weird happenings but she finally figures out she’s not dead she’s stuck in that middle world and her boyfriend is on the living side. So she struggles to wake up and when she does, he’s there with her parents.

Nuff said. This movie was just bad. I give it a 1 out of 5 Donna stars.
