http://www.imdb.com/video/imdb/vi543989017/ Review: For as much as I have bitched about this series, vowing
never ever to watch another Transformers movie again, my husband convinced me to see this. Verdict?
I'm surprisingly glad I did. I actually really liked it. They got rid of Megan Fox. Granted Whitley isn't much
better than Fox, but she is less annoying. She needs some more acting lessons & experience, she might
be good one day. She has some potential. LaBeouf was amazing. He has grown so much as an actor
over the years. I'd liked to see him in a real hard-hitting drama. I liked the intro, and there was good use
of special effects. It wasn't over-used like in the last 2 films. I liked the personal moments with LaBeouf's
character that served as character development and made you root for him. I thought it was a good, solid
story, and Dempsey made a great villain. My only problems were the voice over work was over-acted,
and Duhamel can't act his way out of a paper bag. Gibson, however, has improved since his token performance
in Fast Five. I don't hate you anymore Tyrese Gibson. Rating: Noteworthy. Watch with: Star Trek.
Army Wives: S5 2011 heartfelt TV drama Starring: Emmy winner Kim Delaney ("NYPD Blue"), Catherine
Bell (The Good Witch's Family (TV)), Drew Fuller ("Charmed"), Sally Pressman ("The New Adventures

Departed), Jeremy Davidson ("Pan Am") & guest starring: Lee Tergesen ("Lie to Me"), Harry Hamlin

U.S. Army. Roxy (Pressman), Roland (Brown), and the other military spouses (Delaney, Bell, & Brannagh)
at Fort Marshall lean on each other in the face of new challenges, including dealing with a new baby,
sending a child off to college and losing one of their friends. Trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lhGLCQIJCJQ Review: I love this show. I relate to it because I am a military wife. That being said, this season was better
than last, but it felt a bit short to me. I wanted it to keep going. There was a story line with Roxy wanting
to make a decision about her business that I didn't like. It went on for way too long and was very stressful
to watch. As soon as that ended, the rest of the season was great, but I wanted more. The way they ended
things, I'm very curious for what's in store for Season 6. It think it's gonna be amazing. Rating: "Noteworthy"

http://www.blockbuster.com/browse/catalog/movie/trailer/492060 Review: I love dark comedies. Heathers is one of my favorites. This was a great dark comedy. I felt for
the character, it was funny, satisfying, and surprised me in a few places. It wasn't predictable. That's rare
nowadays. Bibb was very funny. This is the first lead role I've seen her in. She needs more. She's a very
versatile actress who's played a variety of roles and has always stepped up to the challenge. I must comment
as a Catholic, that the title character (Bibb) was a very confused Catholic. Do not misconstrue her beliefs
with those of the other Catholics. Her views do not represent those of the Catholic church or mine for
that matter. This is a movie, not real life. Ok, I'm stepping off my soapbox now. That being said, I highly
recommend this film. Rating: Noteworthy. Watch with: Heathers.

http://www.blockbuster.com/browse/catalog/movie/trailer/517585 DVD features: deleted scenes;
