    William & Kate

    Posted in Disc Reviews by David Annandale on July 19th, 2011

    This is a biopic about two very obscure people whose relationship has escaped the attention of all but a select few. All kidding aside, what we have here is a dramatization of how the heir to the British throne (Nico Evers-Swindell) meets Kate Middleton (Camilla Luddington), and how their romance gradually blossoms. He arrives at university, and every blue-blooded young woman has him in her sights, but it is, naturally, the down-to-earth girl who draws him, the turning point being when she shows that she’s sexy as well as smart during a student fashion show.

    Prayers for Bobby

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Archive Authors on January 3rd, 2011

    From beginning to end, the emotional impact of Prayers for Bobby will leave you reaching for a tissue.

    The screenplay for Prayers for Bobby is from the biographical novel by Leroy Aarons about the Griffith family. Sigourney Weaver plays her role as the matriarch Mary Griffith perfectly. Mary Griffith (Sigourney Weaver) is a devout Christian who believes that by the power of God and of prayer, all problems have a solution.

    Possession of David O’reilly

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Archive Authors on December 19th, 2010

    Written by Dave Younger

    A couple, Alex and Kate (Nicholas Shaw, Zoe Richards), has fallen asleep on the couch watching a movie.  Kate wakes up muttering, “Don’t open it.”  Someone rings the doorbell.  You know they shouldn’t open it.  It’s only David (Giles Alderson), a good friend, a little freaked out because he’s just discovered his girlfriend is cheating on him.  They agree to let him spend the night.  Bad idea.  He’s more than a little freaked: he can’t sleep, and he sees monsters.  We can’t see the monsters too well, but what we do see is reminiscent of the phantasmagoric creatures on The Outer Limits.  We’re mostly aware of them through sound

    The Haunting of Sorority Row

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Archive Authors on December 13th, 2010

    The Haunting of Sorority Row has one of those titles that, when you first hear it, you immediately make assumptions about. My initial assumption was that the movie might very well feature a house full of hot young girls in various stages of undress, acting all catty between pillow fights and being menaced by a supernatural entity of some kind. And then I looked down to the bottom of the dvd case and noted that this was produced by Lifetime. Wait, I thought, isn’t a horror movie by the Lifetime Network akin to Spike TV producing a Jane Austen film festival?

    Seven Deadly Sins

    Posted in Disc Reviews by William O'Donnell on November 9th, 2010

    Grace, California is the kind of “small” town that all the young people wish to escape. Why? I suppose it is because they have ambitions for “greater” things. What are their ambitions while they have to stay? To be as catty and backstabbing as possible while living out a teen soap opera existence. Such is the groundwork for Seven Deadly Sins, a two-part mini-series created for the Lifetime network and based on a series of books of the same name. On this DVD the two parts are merged into a monstrous movie (clocking in at over 3 hours).

    Hush Little Baby

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Archive Authors on October 27th, 2010

    Written by Diane Tillis

    Hush Little Baby is a direct-to-DVD film presented by the Lifetime television network. Already you can make assumptions as to the quality of the film and the heightened drama that is associated with all Lifetime films. Hush Little Baby is parallel to any horror film about a possessed child who torments his/her parents, minus any suspense or gore.
