Little Loopers (DVD Review)

Little LoopersLittle Loopers is a young teen-focused film that is not so entertaining for older crowds. Full of fart jokes and other juvenile jokes, it is kind of hard to watch for this viewer.

Hidden (DVD Review)

Hidden (DVD Review)A family has been hiding in an underground bunker for almost year as they live in constant fear of a dangerous entity that lives on the surface.  The story takes place in the small town of Kingsville.  Though they never really tell you which State it is, Alexander Skarsgard does try to effect a bit of a southern accent that sounds somewhat Virginian.  This is the kinda movie that relies pretty heavily on the big reveal of it’s titular villain.  And being that this is such a small film, there isn’t too much that I can say without spoiling it.  This is probably one of the smallest Sci-fi films I’ve ever seen.  And by small I mean most of the movie takes place underground in a space the size of two living rooms pushed together!

My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic: Adventures Of The Cutie Mark Crusaders (DVD Review)

My-Little-PonyAh, yes, the My Little Pony DVD with the incredibly long title.  I had to look up what exactly it all was.  So, this is a fourth generation My Little Pony show.  It’s called My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic.  Just like the Transformers have something like Transformers: Beast Wars.  This particular collection of episodes is then dubbed Adventures Of The Cutie Mark Crusaders.  Okay, you got all that?  This show is pretty well known for its large cult following of males.  No, not kidding, look it up, they’re called “Bronies”.  Apparently, it has something to do with fandom of one of the head writers of the series.  It was intended for young girls 2-11, but the boys have pretty much taken the fandom over.  The criss-cross is certainly eye-opening and surprising.  I was looking forward to seeing what this was all about and how it could happen.
