Working in Dr. Cranley's laboratory, scientist Jack Griffin was always given the latitude to conduct some of his own experiments. His sudden departure, however, has Cranley's daughter Flora worried about him. Griffin has taken a room at the nearby Lion's Head Inn, hoping to reverse an experiment he conducted on himself that made him invisible. Unfortunately, the drug he used has also warped his mind, making him aggressive and dangerous. He's prepared to do whatever it takes to restore his appearance, and several will die in the process.
“The Invisible Man” appears (?!) on MeTV Saturday night at 10 pm eastern/pacific, 9 central, or, check your local listings. Be aware that some stations have delayed the show an hour for sports or news- the good news being, they do that so they can present the entire show, rather than join it in progress. In Chicago, viewers get a second look at “Time of their Lives” on WCIU at 11 am. - See more at: http://svengoolie.com/?p=8336#sthash.kErzRKtA.dpuf

Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup are three super-powered sisters who use their extraordinary abilities to take down massive monsters, diabolical fashionistas, nefarious packrats, and any other menace that threatens their beloved home of Townsville. A rogues gallery of wild new villains and classic foes such as Mojo Jojo, Princess Morbucks and the Amoeba Boys are no match for our super-human siblings. Each girl is unique in both powers and personality: Blossom is the level-headed leader, Bubbles is everyone’s BFF, and Buttercup is the powerhouse tough girl. And by working together, the Powerpuff Girls prove that they can overcome even the most daunting challenges, from rampaging lumberjacks to — yikes — the first day of school.

Sam Brenner, Will Cooper, Ludlow Lamonsoff, and Eddie "The Fire Blaster" Plant all played classic arcade video games as teenagers. But now they have to use their skills to try to save the world from aliens. The aliens watched video feeds that they thought was a declaration of war. So they send down the classic arcade games to destroy the earth. They also get help from a military specialist. They have three lives and if all three get used then the earth will be destroyed, and every time they lose alive the aliens take someone's life. Who will win, us or the aliens? It's an all-out battle to save our planet and everyone on it.
When this came out last summer I was half-hearted about watching it. The trailers looked week and well it's a Sandler movie and he has not been very good lately. I think his same old same old story line has grown old for his audience but I could be wrong!
