My Thoughts:
This is another movie I got in the Alfred Hitchcock: The Legend Begins set. This one turned out to be an enjoyable movie as well. It is a nice little murder mystery with a bit of comedy and romance thrown in for good measures. I do think the mystery was solved a little too easily at the end though. While not the best I ever seen... I thought the quality of the DVD was surprisingly good. But that is probably because of two things... how old the movie is and how cheap the set is. So I was expecting very low quality. Watched 2 movies out of this set now... and enjoyed them both. This is turning into a right good purchase.

My Rating:
Out of a Possible 5

Plot:
From the revolutionary minds of Pixar Animation Studios and the acclaimed director of Monsters, Inc. comes a hilariously uplifting adventure where the sky is no longer the limit.

Carl Fredricksen, a retired balloon salesman, is part rascal, part dreamer who is ready for his last chance at high-flying excitement. Tying thousands of balloons to his house, Carl sets off to the lost world of his childhood dreams. Unbeknownst to Carl, Russell, an overeager 8-year-old Wilderness Explorer who has never ventured beyond his backyard, is in the wrong place at the wrong time - Carl's front porch!
The world's most unlikely duo reach new heights and meet fantastic friends like Dug, a dog with a special collar that allows him to speak, and Kevin, a rare 13-foot-tall flightless bird. Stuck together in the wilds of the jungle, Carl realises that somtimes life's biggest adventures aren't the ones you set out looking for.

Up reaches new heights with a pristine picture, theatre-quality sound and hours of never-before-seen bonus features available only on Blu-ray™ Hi-Def.
It's an adventure that will send your spirits soaring!

My Thoughts:
I really like the first half of this movie. Great introductions of the characters. But as with the first time I have watched it in the cinema, I felt it lost something from the moment "Kevin" appears. And then shortly after with all the talking dogs. It's a little too ridiculous even for a movie where a house flies with balloons. But still the second half is worth watching. Some great action scenes, which were even better in 3D.

Dark Angel Marathon, a review by addicted2dvd


Season 1: Disc 3

8. Blah Blah Woof Woof
Lydecker gets the local police to post "Wanted" posters of Max throughout the city, charging her with Vogelsang's murder. Zack returns to beg Max to leave town.

My Thoughts:
This was a really good episode... I enjoyed it a lot. The very next episode.... and Lydecker already causing problems by knowing what Max looks like. This one is slightly less on the action (Although still plenty)... but that don't slow down the entertainment at all. Max also finds out that Logan is in trouble... and has to have an operation or he could be paralyzed from the neck down.

9. Out
Tired of Logan's "all business" approach to their relationship, Max refuses to help with his latest case involving a medical supply smuggler. But when Logan gets double-crossed by his target, Max goes undercover as "Eyes Only" to rescue him from a certain death.

My Thoughts:
And yet another really good episode. Max wants to have a romantic evening with Logan... but he messes up... and she is pissed. Not a girl you want mad at you!  Tongue But when push comes to shove... she is of course there for him. And he learns his lesson.

10. Red
Max is sent by Logan to rescue a man in the witness protection program. Turns out the man is Bruno Anselmo, and she has just saved him from certain death.

My Thoughts:
And yet another really good episode... She has to protect someone that she truly hates. A thug that tried to kill her in one of the first (if not the first) episodes. He is turning states evidence... that is if Max don't kill him before court date gets here.
