Sucker Punch
A girl in a mental hospital (Emily Browning) dreams up a fantastical world and battles samurais, snakes and Don Draper alongside other 98-pound girls (including Vanessa Hudgens, again) in order to be free. Uh, what? (Warner Bros.)

Beastly
A popular asshole high-schooler (Alex Pettyfer) is cursed by a witch (Mary-Kate Olsen) and becomes—no!—ugly. Fortunately, a “plain” girl (Vanessa Hudgens) teaches him that looks aren’t everything. Uh, what? (CBS Films)

Season of the Witch
Speaking of witches who are too old to pass as high-schoolers: An evil sorceress has brought the Black Plague upon the land, and only wiggy medieval knight Behmen (wiggy Nicolas Cage) can stop it. Uh, what? (Rogue)

Warehouse 13: Season 2
Artifact cops Pete and Myka (Eddie McClintock, Joanne Kelly) track down more supernatural knickknacks, trade bodies, save the world and come face-to-face with H.G. Wells … who’s a woman (Jaime Murray). Uh, what? (Universal)

Wild Cherry
When three high-school girls discover a Book of Virgins that pairs them with football jocks for deflowering, hilarious revenge high jinx and the last known sighting of Rob Schneider ensue. Finally, a plotline that makes sense. (Image)

The point of a "review" is that I have seen them. And who's knocking?

 

Posted // June 27,2011 at 16:57 - The impression I got was from this (by you)"Warehouse 13: Season 2 Artifact cops Pete and Myka (Eddie McClintock, Joanne Kelly) track down more supernatural knickknacks, trade bodies, save the world and come face-to-face with H.G. Wells … who’s a woman (Jaime Murray). Uh, what? (Universal)" The "Uh, what?" is what gave me the impression that you might have issues with the show taking poetic license with a historically male figure and making him female. No offense was meant in my previous reply. I also know what the point of a "review" is. Thanks for the lesson though. ;-b

Hey, don't knock Warehouse 13 S2 DVDs until you've seen them. The fact that this show decided to play with history a bit and make HG Wells a woman is AWESOME! Besides, there were many, many female authors back in the day of HG Wells that had MALE sudanames because of the male dominated society's views on what women could and couldn't do. Seems fitting that it could be possible that HG really was a woman.
