Disney's 18th Animated Classic

Humour, spectacle and magic rule in Walt Disney's legendary classic tale The Sword in the Stone - now celebrating its 45th Anniversary with exciting new bonus features!

Embark on an adventure-filled quest for an unlikely hero! According to legend, only someone with honour, decency and inner strength can claim the throne of England by pulling out the enchanted sword that lies locked in a massive stone. Many brave knights have tried, so it seems impossible that a young apprentice known as Wart could succeed. But with the guidance of the wizard Merlin, help from some hilarious friends and true strength of character, Wart just might become England's greatest king.

There's even more wizardry fun with marvelous new bonus features, including the all-new Merlin's Magical Academy Game, animated shorts, Disney's song selection and much more! The Sword in the Stone 45th Anniversary Edition DVD is a magical experience your whole family will want to share again and again!

My Thoughts:
I last saw this movie when I was a kid. I really loved the battle between Merlin and Madame Mim at the end. I still like it. I also enjoyed the watching the movie again. What I didn't like was the voice acting of Arthur. The voice never fit. Seems like they had trouble with the role as they are switching three different voice actor throughout the movie. Sometimes even in a scene.
The interaction between Merlin and Archimedes were great though.

The Underground Comedy Movie, a review by Jimmy




Title : The Underground Comedy Movie (1999)

Overview
The Underground Comedy Movie is the ultimate in-your-face satirical comedy that follows the hilarious tradition of The Kentucky Fried Movie! Chock-full of irreverent skits and parodies of TV shows, music videos and human follow. It is sure to make you laugh and likely to make you squirm. Supermodels to bag ladies, no one escapes the biting onslaught of this incredible lampoonery.

My Impression
This is the movie made by Vince Offer and you know this guy already even if you have never seen this film.

I will certainly not write that this movie is good, since it is a pretty cheap film made with the same formula used in The Kentucky Fried Movie and some cheaper ones made more than 20 years ago by myself and some friends (lost movie and deserving this fate). So the film is really uneven some of the skits are funny like the one with a KKK member at a black talk show or the Godfather parody that end with the producer who wakes up with a dead horse head in his bed (but it's replace with a pineapple ham, because the guy is Jewish... I know it's racist but it's funny anyway) or watching Slash (the Guns N'Roses guitarist at the time for those who don't know) completly drunk trying to act or Michael Clarke Duncan in the role of a gay guy (he plays this as a big tough guy not as a stereotype, this is why I've found that funny). The rest is really weak and unfunny...

Not really a recommandation but certainly the best movie I've reviewed today.

Supernatural Marathon, a review by addicted2dvd


Supernatural: Season 1

EPISODE 4: PHANTOM TRAVELER
A plane reservation is a ticket to terror when a phantom traveler forces a jet into a crash landing. Knowing the phantom is on another flight, Sam and Dean board to attempt an in-air exorcism.

Guest Stars:
Jaime Ray Newman as Amanda Walker
Brian Markinson as Jerry Panowski
Kett Turton as Max Jaffe
Daryl Shuttleworth as Jack Lambert

My Thoughts:
I enjoyed this one quite a bit. I liked that they made Dean vulnerable to demon possession since he was afraid of flying. They got their first clue that their father is still around and ok in this episode. Well worth checking this one out.
