Here is the trailer for Skyline.

I did not expect much from Skyline because it looked like a sub-par B movie. I wasn’t totally wrong.

So, a bunch of attractive people with a rich friend (hey it’s Turk from Scrubs!) are partying it up, and wake up to an alien apocalypse.  Obviously.

He sure hopes that JD is alright.

Apparently the aliens inflict some sort of more severe version of the “hungry vampire” look from The Vampire Diaries.  That is no good.

I know! Let’s go on the roof with a handgun!  We will definitely come out on top.

Enough snark.  I don’t even think I’ll write any more about this.  I will say that I didn’t hate this movie, it’s definitely good for a popcorn-action movie type of evening.  Check it out.

Skyline is available on DVD from Amazon for $9.75.

The Vampire Diaries

by Jamie Sanford on February 7, 2011

The 3 stars of The Vampire Diaries which airs on the CW on Thursday nights.

At this point, I try not to watch too many new shows because I don’t want to watch any more television than I already do.  However, in the fall of 2009, I recorded the first episode of a new show called The Vampire Diaries, because I am into Twilight and I’ll try out other vampire stuff.  (Surprisingly, I watched the first season of True Blood and wasn’t super into it.)

Here’s the trailer for the pilot episode of the show:

It gets so much better than that.

The best part about getting sucked into The Vampire Diaries is that my Twilight-hating husband likes it too!  He started watching the show with me from behind his computer but soon enough, he was actually sitting on the couch, watching it with me.  This never happens but with this show, you need to watch.  They don’t mess around, every episode has big things happening.  There are no “throwaway” episodes here.  Plus, the major trio of characters (well, there are 4 if you count that Nina Dobrev plays 2 characters) are all hot and the boys have their shirts off a lot.

Anyway, I would almost not recommend watching new episodes of this show.  I would say go get this DVD of Season 1 of The Vampire Diaries right now.

This DVD set of The Vampire Diaries, season 1, is available from Amazon for $38.99.

Season 2 won’t end until May, but if you really want to catch up after watching season 1, then you can watch episodes on demand from Amazon for $1.99 an episode.

Let these hotties draw you in to this show:


Are you already watching this show? If not, have I piqued your interest?
