TV Movies Reviews

Cyberbully follows Taylor Hillridge (Emily Osment), a teenage girl who falls victim to online bullying, and the cost it takes on her as well as her friends and family. Taylor is a pretty seventeen-year-old student dealing with her parents' recent divorce and painfully aware of her lower social status in high school. When her mom gives her a computer for her birthday, Taylor is excited by the prospect of going online to meet new friends without her mother always looking over her shoulder. However, Taylor soon finds herself the victim of betrayal and bullying while visiting a popular social website.
Cast: Emily Osment (Hanna Montana), Kay Panabaker (No Ordinary Family), Kelly Rowan (The O.C)
REVIEW: I have to say i'm not really fan of Emily Osment but the movie sounded interesting and i thought to give it a try. In general i can say it was an average movie for me. I didn't enjoy it that much but neither i hated it. The cause of that i think that was how different are people in US than in Greece. The whole situation on both bullying in school and online, it's not something that i really noticed here..ever. Yes, there were bullies but in the movie is just too much. I'm wondering if it's true. How can a whole school be so mean with someone. And the mother took some bad decisions at some points. Apart from that, i found the representation of the feelings and how each person was dealing with bullying really good and accurate. Those scenes were actually Osment's best acting ever. The acting in general was average with most actors being new to me and if i'm right it was one camera movie which took me some time to get used to it.

The Witches of Oz follows the exploits of the grown Dorothy Gale, now a successful children's book author, as she moves from Kansas to present day New York City. Dorothy quickly learns that her popular books are based on repressed childhood memories, and that the wonders of Oz are very, very real. When the Wicked Witch of the West shows up in Times Square, Dorothy must find the inner courage to stop her. 
REVIEW: For some reason Wizard of Oz was never one of my favorites but the movie did have some actors that i missed watching them play. The movie has really good special effects, a quite interesting story with the known to all Oz characters, great music and an acceptable acting (except the Dorothy girl which for some reason she had the same expressions in the whole thing. You couldn't really see any emotion, or at least i couldn't ). If i have to say something negative, is how long it was. Well it was two parts and i decided to watch them both at once but i do that all the time! Sean Austin, Billy Boyd (both from LOTR movies) and Christopher Lloyd (Back To The Future Trilogy) were all amazing though and i enjoyed watching them on screen once again.

Life is pretty magical for 23-year-old Timmy Turner. He's managed to avoid all sorts of responsibilities by staying a kid at heart. He's even maintained his 5th grade status to keep his Fairy Godparents, Wanda and Cosmo! But when Timmy's childhood friend, Tootie, returns to town, Timmy is forced to deal with new crushy feelings for the once-dorky-now-gorgeous Tootie. Will he have to (gasp!) grow up? But what would happen to his Fairy Godparents? Tough questions for Timmy, but that's nothing compared to his big time battle with power-hungry evil business trying to take over his beloved Dimmsdale! It might be time for Timmy Turner to do some growing up.
Cast: Drake Bell (Drake & Josh), Daniella Monet (Nancy Drew), Jason Alexander (The Hunchback of Notre Dam), Cheryl Hines (RV)
REVIEW: This movie was so short! Barely 1 hour! I didn't even manage to enjoy it that much! Haha! I have seen the cartoon series but unfortunately i don't remember much to say how good the movie was opposite them. Anyway, it was actually really fun. I soooooo loved the fairy parents! They were hilarious! And the movie is simple but really cool. Nice effects, good jokes, an evil guy. Not much of original script but enjoyable. Definitely recommend it for kids! They love it.
Drake Bell is also really cute in his pink clothes XD Oh! I was surprised to recognize many of the actors. I was waiting for something more unknown and low budget.


  1. Ohh Cyberbully sounds really good.
    I find the same sort questions come from these sort of movies, whether a whole school can be that bad etc

  2. If it doesnt have the spanish guy that hits on Wanda its not worth it have manifico?

  3. @BooksforCompany: yes sometimes they just overdo it

    @Johnny: no i don't think i saw him.

  4. I have to check out The Witches of Oz.

    And I haven't seen anything with Drake Bell for a long long time!

  5. Cyberbully was actually a really good movie, i knew from the beginning that i was going to enjoy it.

    Bulling in some schools is pretty severe but in Greece not so much, i found it too much and unrealistic too but after i saw the movie i found the real story that it is "based" and the true story is even more shocking.

    the acting was ok, i enjoyed the plot and the performances and i had no idea it was one camera movie, it was the same like all movies to me !


There is lot of spam lately at the posts, so for a while i will put up the comment moderation. Sorry for that, i really don't like it but i thought it might stop the spamming. It will be down soon enough! Thanks a lot :)
