"The Secret Circle" Review

Today, we are reviewing the series premiere episode of The Secret Circle, the newest series on the CW.

The series, which stars Britt Robertson and Thomas Dekker is based on the book series of the same name, which is written by J.L. Smith, who is also the author of The Vampire Diaries book series, which has also been turned into a CW show.

The Secret Circle is set in the fictional town of Chance Harbor, Washington and follows a teenager named Cassie who learns that she comes from a family of witches. Cassie lost her mother in what she believes is an accident, leaving her an orphan. Cassie quickly meets friends at her new school, and she finds out the secret of her family's history and the history of the town's witches. But, Cassie finds an old back which has another secret in it: her mother's death may not have been an accident.

While most people would find the plot geeky and Twilight-like, the series premiere was incredible. The series contains traits of Drama, Supernatural drama, Horror, and Romance, making it suitable for all audiences.

While the premiere episode didn't contain some of the best performances from some of the actors, it's definetly a great premise, and if you haven't - you should definetly check out the premiere episode.

Acting: 6.5/10
Plot: 7.5/10

Sarah Michelle Gellar "Ringer" Review

Today, we're reviewing the series premiere of the new CW series, Ringer, which marks Gellar's first return to TV since Buffy, the Vampire Slayer.

The show follows... well it's kind of a long story so we're not gonna bother explaining it.

All and all, the show included some great performances, and the plot definetly has some potential. We don't know where the CW will take it, but we're excited to find out.

The only thing is that the show is a little confusing, but the network claims that we will learn new information throughout the show's run.

'Final Destination 5' Review

Today, we're reviewing Final Destination 5, the newest installment to the Final Destination film franchise.

The plot of the film is the exact same as the previous ones, so we're not going to bother providing you a plot.

Some people may call this installment the best in the series, some may call it the worst in the series. We personally think it was alright, but it's still just one of those violent, slasher, gory movies. That's basically the only reason why people want to see the films, but we personally think that the acting was very good, and probably better than any of the acting in the previous films, and there's a huge twist on this installment that will try to keep things fresh.

But it's still the exact same movie that we've seen five times now, but we give the screenwriters credit for trying to spice it up a little with the twist.


Acting: 8/10
Special Effects: 6.5/10
Plot: 5.5/10

Overall rating: 6.5/10

9/11 Anniversary Threat

The world and the media are really confusing us right now.

According to a press conference, there is no 'credible' 9/11 anniversary threat against the United States, linked to the 10th anniversary of the September 11th, 2011 attacks, however the country is under 'heightened' vigilance, a top security official said, today.

On 9/11, over 3,000 people were killed in attacks on the Twin Towers, the Pentagon, and Shanksville and now the country is taking the necesscary precautions to make sure it doesn't happen again.

U.S. Security is expected to be tight this Sunday, when President Barack Obama will attend ceremonies at the three attack locations.

So, basically, the government says there are no legitimate threats, but they just want to make sure that their nightmares don't come true. We understand why they're doing this, but we just hope the anniversary isn't spent by people being worried about another attack, instead of remembering the thousands of people who lost their lives on that tragic day.

We'll keep you updated.

Update: Press conference happening now.

Update: Specific, credible, but unconfirmed threat. Government asks people to stay vigilant. Government taking extra precautions.

Update: Call 311 if you see anything suspicious, call 911 if you see anything dangerous. Video teleconference to take place Friday morning. "See something, say something."
