Legend of the Seeker: The Complete First Season: I love this show and highly recommend it. Legend of the Seeker is how sword and sorcery TV should be done. The acting, story and choreography is of such high caliber. It’s a must own for me, for any fan of Fantasy and for any fan of really good TV.
Drag Me to Hell: I'm just not sure about this one. I like Sam Rami so that is a plus, it got decent reviews another plus and the premise kind of hooks me. That said I have been tortured by bad movies claiming to be horror for too long and I am concerned that this one might drag the viewer through a tortuous experience (not the good kind) to watch this movie. Maybe I'm too much of a cowered or have too much suffering in my own life to risk it on this movie. please someone who has watched it clear up this F.U.D. (fear, uncertainty & doubt) and give me a reason to watch this movie.
Land of the Lost: The trailer looks funny which originally peeked my interest. Will Ferrell is funny but also a hit or miss for me with his movies. After it got tanked in the reviews I became more cautious about Land of the Lost but I have not given up on the movie because most of the complaints are that it's too cheesy which is exactly what the original show was like. I may still watch this one but it does not go very high on my rental list.
Theater or Renter: June 2009 includes five SF movies Land of the Lost, Imagine That, Year One, Dead Snow: (Død snø), Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. Will we watch? Will we rent? or do we even care?
Rules of the Game: Watch the trailers. Rate the Trailer. Then share with us your comments: does the movie, it’s trailer and buzz make you want to watch it in the theater, rent it, or not interested at all, and why?

Land of the Lost: The Complete Series: All 3 seasons of the classic television show following the Marshall Clan through their mad capped adventures as they try to find their way home from being stuck in a prehistoric time. It's a cheesy fantasy show. The release is timed for the movie which will hit theaters on June 5th but I'm glad to see it re-released so that those curious about the original show can rent and watch it.
