I've been writing this blog since 2005. I have had a number of content specific blogs in the past, but decided in 2013 to consolidate them all back into PJMixer. You'll find photo projects, movie reviews, new music and general thoughts about my life.

Highly romanticized version of a very interesting real life story. Kids and animals make it a family movie, but the emotions are quite heavy. Damon and Johansson looked a little out of place, but the chemistry worked, wonderful performances by the youngsters and of course the animals. Interesting soundtrack that Crowe is apparently famous for. Good extras on the BD disc.
Must see for horror fans. I was surfing around and found it on Rogers on Demand and a quick cross reference with IMDB suggested a 7+ rating with reviews that quickly told of some unusual plot elements. That was enough to give it a chance and I wasn't disappointed. Hugely entertaining, even mixing in comic relief from Jenkins and Witford. But don't worry, lots of horror gore and more. Don't watch the preview - it reveals too much. Loved it.
Excellent action packed entertainment. Everything worked from the sets and costumes to the plot to the writing and special FX and of course the superb cast. Usual big doses of Downey Jr. comic relief. Loved seeing Mad Men's Harris as Moriarty and the camouflage scenes - very clever.
