Okay, here's the skinny;
Lose yourself in timeless love with this gloriously romantic story of the journey of two hearts. Artist Clare Abshire (Rachel McAdams of The Notebook) shares a deep emotional bond with Henry De Tamble (Eric Bana of The Other Boleyn Girl), a handsome librarian who travels involuntarily through time. Knowing they can be separated without warning, Clare and Henry treasure the moments they have together, imbuing them with the yearning and passion of two people imprisoned by time?and set free by love. Based on the #1 bestseller, The Time Traveler?s Wife weaves together destiny and devotion, past and future to turn an extraordinary love into an extraordinary love story.
That being said, I thought this was just demon dull. Rachel McAdams is always pretty to look at, but the rest of it just seemed, I don't know, boring.

The Warner Archives never ceases to amaze me. With this two disc set that have collected the theatrical shorts of Ripley's Believe it or Not. Unfamiliar with it?
Wrap your head around this;
Welcome to the Believe It or Not Hall of Curiosity. Here you’ll find a woman reciting 200+ words in 24 seconds, the world’s smallest book (a 5/16” x 1/8” tome of the Rubaiyat), a 6-year-old lifting 200 pounds, a man-eating tree, a duck teaching chickens to swim, a two-headed turtle, a man with a suit made of Confederate currency and much, much more. You may not believe all you see. But you will be entertained. A little more than a decade after Robert L. Ripley put pen to paper and captured the imaginations of readers everywhere, he brought his knack for finding the unusual to moviehouses with these 24 Theatrical Shorts that are part travelogue, part human interest, part history, part fanciful, all Ripley – believe it or not!
Sounds pretty cool huh? And these are some high quality discs I might add. Order yours today...if you dare!! CLICK HERE TO ORDER

Ninja Assassin is, simply put, a great movie. It is meant to be watched in a large group, popcorn flowing as the gore and body count reaches epic proportions. It doesn't matter what the film is about, who is in it. None of that matters. Ninja Assassin is a visceral experience. A throwback to the good old fashioned, seat of your pants film making. This is what great, mindless, fun movies are supposed to be.
And there's a game!
It is as bloody as the movie and available as an app for your iPhone for only 99 cents! How cool is that!

In this brand-new adventure, Scooby-Doo and the Mystery Inc. gang set out on a trip to visit Daphne’s sister Madelyn, who has been studying magic at the Whirlen Merlin Magic Academy. However, when the gang arrives, they learn that the school has been troubled with strange disturbances. Many of its students have fled after reporting sightings of a giant Gryphon that’s frightened them. The gang smells trouble and sets out to investigate.
DVD bonus material includes a featurette titled Scooby-Doo and Puppets Too, which teaches viewers how to create their own scary Gryphon puppet. It’s an introduction to the art of puppet-making, aimed at children (ages 6 to 11) – and the “young at heart”! A real-life puppet maker acts as host and takes us through the process. The piece is also peppered with groovy graphics and fun feature clips from Scooby Abracadabra-Doo.
Probably the most anticipated of the series, for me anyway, because of the inclusion of the 1950 short, Little Quacker. I always loved that duck. Anyway, classic Tom and Jerry the way you love it. This disc includes 14 shorts looking as great as they ever have.
