Ok so I was at the bookstore today…browsing movie magazines, and I stumbled upon this small section in a DVD magazine…dedicated to readers collection of DVDs…where readers get to boast the huge collection they have …with pictures and all. And wow…the collection they feature was huge…This guy had like close to 3000 DVD…Wow. And of course he doesn’t have the biggest…Some other guy has like close to 14000 DVDs. Lets do a calculation. How much do I need to get myself 14000 DVD assuming each costs at least $25….14000×25=350000…again Wow.Thats a lot of money. Haha…If only I have that much…my collection is pretty pathetic…not worth mentioning…Then again why would I want 14000 DVDs…other then…to show it off in a magazine…I’d want only the good ones…the ones I actually like…the ones I can watch over and over again…thats maybe like a 1000 at most. 🙂 or maybe a lot less.

The Golden Compass

View trailer here. Ok…I kinda like the poster. The icy blue shades…kinda makes you think its a Snow Queen movie of some sort…and the huge polar bear reminds of those polar bears in Chronicles of Narnia. The trailer…hmm didn’t really like it…again looks too much like Narnia…from the colours…the effects…even how the animal looks like…Neither can I really get what the movie is about…and from my perspective…it looks all too similar to Narnia. Sure the poster and trailer looks pretty and all…but overall it doesn’t really grab me.

Becoming Jane

View the trailers here and here. Ok I love period/costume dramas. I love the effort trying to keep the language/settings/costumes true to the era. And I’m really looking forward to this. I like the trailers and all. The scenes look pretty…of course it definitely reminds me of Mansfield Park and Pride and Prejudice…I hope its as good.

Enchanted

View the trailer here. The trailer is out…but not the poster…thats weird. Haha…this film looks cute. The trailer starts off like the typical old fashion Disney fairytale with the whole singing thing… suddenly we see the princess being push into the fountain…and drops right into the real world…then she goes around New York looking for a way to get home to her prince…and ta da …she bumps into McDreamy. You know what I’m interested…seems like a fun comedy watch…How will a fairytale princess survive in the real world…

I Know Who Killed Me

View the trailer here. Hmm the blue glowing flower…it does look mysterious…with the blood dripping off it at the bottom…but other than that I don’t get the significance of the flower…what does it suppose to mean? This must be Lindsay Lohan’s first thriller right? The trailer is so so…has the typical trailer of a thriller look. First we meets Aubrey…then she goes missing…and when she’s found…it isn’t really Aubrey…its Dakota…a girl who looks like Aubrey ( Lindsay back to her Parent Trap days playing twins?)…Are they really twins? Different people? Or is the case of a split personality? I’m keen to watch this. I wanna know what happens. If I have to make a guess here…I think its the split personality thing.

Bratz

View the trailer here. Another poster out. Now we get to see part of their face. The trailer is ok I guess for teenagers. We see some pretty girls wearing some pretty clothes…talking about being BFF (I hate the stupid BFF things)…Then we meet a mean girl who shows them the cliques ( like in Mean Girls isn’t it) at school and wants to seperate them (aww…what a major disaster)…somewhere along they do join the cliques and weren’t BFFs anymore…One day all being stuck at detention…they reunite believing that they should all be themselves and BFFs again…or something like that. Frankly I’m not really interested in this little flick…but I might just watch it…just to see how bad it could be…cause it does look a little crappy. Now I’m wondering when are they going to make a live action movie of Barbie.

Population 436

Working for the Census Bureau, Steve Kady is sent to Rockwell Falls…where the population has always been 436 since1860. Trouble for Steve is he is about to discover the town’s deep dark secret…Will he be able to get out of there alive or forced to ba a part of the population?

I actually saw the movie’s ad on demand tv…and thought that it looks like an interesting film…been a while since I’ve seen a good mystery/horror thriller…so I rented it. Have to say that although it is prdeictable( I mean how else does the population remain the same right?) it is a pretty decent flick…considering it did went straight to video right? The story kinda reminds me of the Wicker Man with the whole outsider investigating an isolated town…to the discovering of the strange rituals and traditions the town has. Also it has that Twilight Zone and Stephen King movie kind of look. So I say if you like the Wicker Man, Twilight Zone and Stephen King flicks…I’m sure you’d be interested to check this one out.

Rear Window (1954)

A photographer, Jeff, becomes wheelchair bound after breaking his leg. Stuck at home, he spend his days spying on his neighbours from his apartment window. One day he suspects that one of his neighbours has murdered his wife. Is he just imagining it?

One of the main reasons why I watched this is because I want to watch Disturbia…so basically I want to compare. Plus this is a classic…and has gotten many praises…And after watching it I understand why…but I wouldn’t exactly count it as a favourite.

Its interesting though how a movie that only has pretty much one setting (just one small apartment) can be so engaging. Never once did I thought the movie was boring. Like Jeff, we too only get to see the neighbours from the window and are kept guessing… did he do it?…By the way ,I had always guessed that he did…The dialogue too is smart and witty…and the language used…hard to imagined that this was a movie made more than half a century ago.

I’ll keep this short. I didn’t think I would’ve enjoyed it…thought it seemed like a boring old flick about a nosy neighbour. But of course its all about how you tell the story and how you shoot it…right? I’ll give it about 3.5/5.
