“In this documentary, filmmakers Andrew James and Joshua Ligairi explore the rise and fall of Cleanflicks, a movie rental company that edited offensive material out of Hollywood films to produce unauthorized “clean” versions for its customers.”
In my opinion, Hollywood SHOULD make edited versions of their movies on DVD. It would automatically open up a wider audience, and allow people to watch good movies with their kids, parents, and more.
Actor Karl Slover, best known for playing a Munchkin in the 1939 classic ‘The Wizard of Oz,’ passed away Tuesday. He was 93. You can see Slover playing the lead trumpet when the Munchkin mayor arrives in the land of Oz. According to the AP, the actor was born Karl Kosiczky in what is now the Czech Republic. He moved to the United States in his late 20s and joined a circus vaudeville group called the Singer Midgets; the group would later be cast as Munchkins. Over the years, Slover has made appearances at ‘Wizard of Oz’ reunions and fan festivals.
Rented the newest Red Riding Hood movie from Redbox. Watching now.
Yeah pretty much if you haven’t seen this yet, you need to. I’ve known people like this who live around the same areas I’m from.
Should’ve seen this already, but I haven’t. Watching now. Interesting film about the elusive graffiti artist Banksy.
I’ve seen it years ago, but my girlfriend said she hasn’t seen it so we’re watching it now from Blockbuster. Juliette Lewis, Brad Pitt, David Duchovny etc…
Screen legend Elizabeth Taylor has died. She was 79 years old.
Elizabeth Taylor, the violet-eyed beauty whose hectic off-screen love life often eclipsed her most sultry film roles, has died. She was 79.
She died today at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, her four children by her side, according to a statement from her publicist. She was hospitalized six weeks ago for treatment of congestive heart failure, a condition that had stabilized, “and it was hoped that she would be able to return home,” the statement said. “Sadly, this was not to be.”

Johnny Knoxville has been rumored as one of the frontrunners for the Farrelly Brothers’ long-gestating Three Stooges movie before only to be debunked the Farrellys themselves. And now Knoxville, apparently, has the role.
Variety says Johnny is on the verge of signing a deal with Fox that would have him as Moe, the lead in the Three Stooges movie. Their sources claim the part was offered to him and the Farrellys have been sitting around for awhile waiting on him to accept. So the question here is, were Peter and Bobby Farrelly lying or is something else going on here?
Watching this 1986 movie I got on dvd from Blockbuster Online. Stars Harrison Ford, River Phoenix, Helen Mirren, and Martha Plimpton.
I’m about to watch this movie with my girlfriend. I’ve told her it was very bizarre. Will be interesting to see how freaked/repulsed she is by the film.
When Netflix started up more than 10 years ago, its sales pitch was pretty simple: Hey, subscribe to us, and we’ll mail you DVDs that you can then mail back to us without worrying about any late fees. But as the rental market moves toward online and on-demand models, Netflix’s iconic red envelopes may eventually become as antiquated as VHS tapes. Beefing up their streaming business, Netflix has predicted…
Cool documentary, watching on Netflix.
This old movie is kinda rad. I dig it. My girlfriend turned me on to it because she remembered she liked the movie as a kid, but hadn’t been able to find the movie on Netflix, at Blockbuster, or anywhere. She warned me however, that she thinks the movie is a bit corny, and the “special effects” are totally 1980′s. Of course, this made-for-tv movie came out in 1985, so I find the corniness acceptable.
I decided to search eBay and found a VHS copy that was like new, and it played beautifully with a great picture!
As I said, it is a 1985 made-for-TV movie that is set in the Star Wars galaxy. A sequel to Caravan of Courage: An Ewok Adventure, this movie focuses on the primary character named Cindel, a little girl from the first film, who, after being orphaned, joins the Ewoks in protecting their village and defeating the evil marauders who have taken control of the Endor moon.
The main Ewok in the film is Wicket, played by actor Warwick Davis. Television personality Matt Roloff plays an Ewok in this movie, he can be seen as the Ewok on crutches. Also, Wilford Brimley plays the character of Noa.
I bought this dvd years ago on clearance sale at a Blockbuster store. It’s been on a shelf since, and I haven’t watched it in awhile. If you’re wondering if it is a good movie, look at the cast. Denis Leary, Christopher Walken, Jay Mohr,Jeremy Sisto, Henry Thomas, Sean Patrick Flanery, and more.
WANT TO SEE
I just saw previews on another dvd. Bad timing considering the recent killer whale killing?
I have been anticipating this DVD release ever since the movie came out, because I didn’t see it in the theatre. The boy in the movie really seems to be a brat and an annoying little kid named Max that bites people. I don’t like him. He’s like 11 years old, way old enough to know better.. but whatever. The movie was visually great, and the characters were good…I guess there just wasn’t much to follow — it’s just a story. I usually don’t like to try interpreting a movie, but I guess the message was that Max learned a lesson from the Wild Things, and was able to take that lesson with him back to the real world and hopefully correct his behavior?
All in all, a pretty good movie.
I rate this movie 7/10
It’s sad, but I’m actually surprised he didn’t die years ago. Drugs are bad. He should have been on Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew.
Liked Olyphant since Go and Deadwood, and expected this movie to be better than it was.
I only give this movie a 3/10 rating.
A roller derby movie. A movie about hot chicks rollerskating and hitting eachother. This movie is the directorial debut of Drew Barrymore. Starring Ellen Page, Kristen Wiig, Juliette Lewis, Drew Barrymore, Jimmy Fallon, Daniel Stern, and Marcia Gay Harden.
Juliette lewis is crazy hot. Always has been. Same with Drew Barrymore.
The movie is actually very good, I was surprised.
I rate this movie 8/10
I’d also like to find out if I’m right about a similarity between a scene in this movie, and another scene in Stand By Me. at about the 54-55 minute mark of Whip It, Ellen Page and her boyfriend are standing at the edge of a lake. To me, it looked like the same lake that appears in the movie Stand By Me where the boys find the dead body. I saw this because I’ve seen Stand By Me probably 100 times, it’s one of my favorite films ever. I could be wrong about the lake being the same, but I’d like to find out if I’m right just to satisfy my own curiosity.
This movie is NOT really a comedy, even though Patton Oswalt is in it. Although there are humorous scenes, it is mostly a dark, tense drama. Written and directed by Robert Siegel, this movie is about a big sports fan obsessed with the New York Giants. Also in the movie is Kevin Corrigan and Michael Rappaport, both who usually bring the quality. LOL @ starting the movie off with Patton calling in to a Jim Rome type of show…I am familiar. This is shaping up to be a good movie.
I rate this movie 7.5 out of 10
I went to see Shutter Island tonight. It was good. I won’t spoil it for you. The movie had some good twists…I somewhat predicted it, but not entirely. I enjoyed the movie and am glad I went.
I rate this movie 6/10
Starring David Duchovny and Sigourney Weaver. I have no idea what it is about, bu I’m about to watch it now. Ok…it’s about a TV show pilot that never got off the ground. The movie starts by saying x% of all TV series produced never see the light of day, and this movie is about one of those shows.
On a sidenote, and speaking of Duchovny, I’ve been told that Californication is a good show, I need to get the past seasons from Netflix because I’ve never watched the show at all.
I think I will start rating movies on a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being the best.
I give this movie a 4/10 rating.
