REVIEW:
I sometimes watched the original show with David Carradine. (Yes, I'm that old.) So I was stoked to see they brought the show back with new life!
I must admit, I enjoy this one better too! Could be the kick-ass female lead, but also the story has more depth to it.
This series follow a girl on her destiny, one she had no idea she even had until the moment arose that she had to be a warrior. Then all of the pieces start to fall into place. With the help of her friends and family, Nicky takes on events that are wild and unseen.
I have to say, the very last episode wasn't the best. It dragged out and it didn't bring the show together as I would hope. The only thing is it set us up for the next season, provided there is one. Will I watch it? You bet I will!

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although

The Invisible Man

AVAILABLE TODAY! RATED R 125 MINUTES AMAZON What you can't see can hurt you. Trapped in a violent, controlling relationship with a wealthy scientist, Cecilia (Elisabeth Moss) escapes in the dead of night and disappears into hiding. But when her abusive ex suddenly dies, Cecilia suspects his death was a hoax. As a series of eerie coincidences turns lethal, threatening the lives of those she loves, Cecilia's sanity begins to unravel while she desperately tries to prove she is being hunted by someone nobody can see.  REVIEW: I sorta hated the beginning. Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see. It doesn't take long to get light though. Thankfully. Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too. Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would
