Potion Bar

Fun Factor:★★★★★ 

This supernatural time management game was really different, and somewhat magickal. A newspaper columnist gets an invitation to go to a shady club downtown, and next thing she knows, she is under a geass to run a Potion Bar! There is a former proprietor we only know as Jack, and a talking black and white tabby cat that helps us run the place. We serve up potions to unusual patrons, like Rastafarians, flower children, adventurers, witches, fortune tellers and so on…

Our work takes us to magickal ports of call via teleportation, from San Fransisco to Istanbul, to London and more as we work the bar we are bound to, and hunt for the mysterious Jack. Our drinks are not the usual mixes like Rum & Coke, oh, hell no! They feature herbs like Rastafarians, flower children, adventurers, witches, fortune tellers, and even phoenix feathers. Once a week we brew up new potions for the bar in a hidden object game using weird ingredients, and some looking like a Cosmic Climax from Jungle Jims in Lake Buena Vista.

All’s Faire in Love

All's FaireBe careful when you find a great deal on a DVD at a local discount store, because it might not be worth the $5 you plunked down for it. I took an interest in All’s Faire in Love for two reasons. I used to be in the SCA , and I like Christina Ricci’s work, ever since her days of The Addams Family and Casper. I could have skipped this one. It did have some good names in the cast, like Cedric the Entertainer, and Ann-Margaret. This little bit of fluff was sort of degrading to Cedric, especially compared to his performances in the Barbershop movies. As to Ann-Margaret, she’s pretty much been doing fluff since Bye Bye Birdie, but they are not the main characters in this… I guess it’s a romantic comedy.

Halloweentown: I’m getting that deja vu feeling again!

This movie has become an October tradition at The Disney Channel, and has spawned four sequels, and each one is just as fresh and original as the one that started it all. Debbie Reynolds stars as Aggie Cromwell, a very powerful witch from Halloweentown. Her family lives in the mortal world. Her daughter, Gwen Cromwell Piper (Judith Hoag), granddaughters Marnie (Kimberly Brown) and Sophie (Emily Roeske) and grandson Dylan (Joey Zimmerman). Gwen will let the kids have nothing to do with Halloween or anything with the occult. The family is not right-wing religious, so when Grandma comes to visit and starts a little Pagan party at the house complete with pentacles and costumes, we know something is up with the family. It turns out that the whole of the family has suppressed their magical abilities due to Gwen’s determination to protect them from the evils of Halloweentown. Halloweentown is in another world made up of witches, werewolves, vampires, demons, devils, and other dark creatures. They all live together in harmony, and have nothing to fear from the fear of mortals attempting to destroy them as they attempt to during the Middle Ages. After dinner, Aggie tells them a story about Halloweentown, and Dylan, being the family’s science nerd, says she is making the whole thing up, until Aggie pulls out a book, and there is a likeness of Marnie dressed as a witch happily flying over the town on a broomstick. Dylan is not only a nerd, but a green idealist, making some viewers wonder if he could possibly be not a male witch, but instead, a druid.
