Toy Box...
Child's Play 12-inch Deluxe
Chucky Doll
He wants to be your buddy, but he's not coming back to the silver screen just yet. But in the meantime, he's a Specialty Market Exclusive toy coming to your town and wreaking havoc as the Child's Play 12-Inch Deluxe Chucky Doll. From the fright-flick series comes this super-detailed Chucky doll, dressed in his trademark blue denim overalls and featuring a shock of shaggy red hair. This doll is not going to be found in every corner department store. This is a one-time-only production run. Packaged in an illustrated window box, this is McFarlane Toys' biggest and best rendition of Chucky to date.

At The Movies...
Iron Monkey
Although this film was made in 1993, the film's
producers, released it direct-to-video in the USA in 2000. Now, after nine years, Miramax has finally acquired the theatrical rights. Loosely based upon the British legend of Robin Hood, this film is set in a 19th century
China village. When a corrupt politician finds himself repeatedly robbed by a masked bandit, Iron Monkey, he forces a traveling physician into investigating the mystery and stops him by holding his young son in jail. The American action film has been slowly drowning to death in a sea of Asian wire-fu
copycats. It's not a pretty death, and it's leaving
the likes of Schwartznager, Stallone, and Van Damme wearing cement galoshes at the bottom of a kung fu sea. Iron Monkey is at its heart a hardcore, kung fu action film.

On Video...
Bridget Jones's Diary
A delightful, warm and witty film adaptation of the
best-selling book, about an overweight thirtysomething young woman searching for career and love in London. American Renee Zellweger raised eyebrows when she was
cast as the lead but she pulls off the role with zeal. Bridget Jones has simple goals in life: to lose weight, cut back on her drinking, and find true love. She's a publicist for a British publisher and has a habit of striking out with men, including a set-up date with the son of a neighbor, who snubs her. She eventually has an affair with her boss (Hugh Grant), but that too goes sour when she finds he's having another affair. When both men have a change of heart, so to speak, and come after her, she has to make a romantic decision. Touching and charming, this is a
great rent.
