Mahalo!

Annoyingly, I’d just bought Forgetting Sarah Marshall (2008) in a sale, when ITV2 decided to repeat it… but the DVD does include an extended version, and bonus features, so I can’t really complain. For those who don’t know, this rom-com … Continue reading

Maids To Measure

I literally cannot remember the last time I went to the cinema to watch a film. Second-hand DVDs are so cheap these days, that I can pick up four old flicks for the same price as going to see one … Continue reading

What Is It Good For?

Considering the critical mauling that Bride Wars (2009) received when it was first released, I was expecting to hate it… but in the end, I found myself chuckling quite often, and (almost) getting a bit teary at the end. Of … Continue reading

Hiccups Return

Apparently I haven’t been playing close enough attention, because a new season of Canadian sitcom Hiccups started last month, and I completely blanked it! Lucky for me only three episodes have been broadcast so far, so I should be able to … Continue reading

The Cutest Girl In The Office

[Contains SPOILERS] I’ve read some comments online suggesting that the American version of The Office “jumped the shark” when Pam and Jim got together at the end of season three… but, now I’ve watched the season four boxset, I’d have … Continue reading

Choking On Swan Gas

Drop Dead Gorgeous (1999) is a little too mean-spirited and trashy for me to ever be able to recommend it unreservedly, but I’ve seen it three times now over a span of several years, and there are still plenty of … Continue reading

Quasi-GothWatch: Tara Reid

A while ago I was messing around with one of those silly little multiple-choice quizzes you find online, to determine how “Goth” I was… but it turned out to be some sort of scam where you had to send them … Continue reading

The Trouble With Tribbianis

Clearly I have an addiction to buying bargain DVDs. Even with a teetering tower of cases already threatening to spill over and cause me a mild, toe-related injury, I still couldn’t resist picking up the first season of Joey (2004-2006), … Continue reading

Wherefore Art Thou, Amara?

I could have sworn a straight-to-DVD horror movie called The Task (2010) was supposed to be coming out this month, but according to the retail sites it won’t actually be out until July. So, either my thirty-something memory is failing … Continue reading

Underwhelmed

Okay, yes, I’ll admit it… the main reason I plucked Get Over It (2001) from the second-hand shelf, was the smoking-hot promo shot of Mila Kunis featured on the back cover. Of course, her name isn’t actually included in the … Continue reading
