Underdog, a review by addicted2dvd



Underdog
It's a bird, it's a plane, it's a frog...no, it's Disney's 'Underdog' - a flying, talking canine caped crusader! After an accident in the mysterious lab of mad scientist Dr. Simon Barsinister, an ordinary beagle named Shoeshine finds himself with extraordinary powers... and the ability to talk! Armed with a fetching superhero costume, Underdog vows to protect the beleaguered citizens of Capital City and, in particular, a beautiful spaniel named Polly Purebred. When a diabolical plot by Barsinister and his overgrown henchman Cad threatens to destroy Capital City, only Underwear...(oops!)...Underdog can save the day. Based on the original hit animated series 'Underdog' - your family will love watching the next great hero take a big bite out of crime.

My Thoughts:
My daughter and I decided to watch a movie together this morning. We picked Underdog since I am already doing a bit of a Superhero marathon off and on here lately. The cartoons this is based on were pretty bad for anyone but the younger kids.... but the movie is a good, fun movie for the entire family! I really enjoyed every minute of it. This movie is a great addition for any family library.

My Rating:
Out of a Possible 5

Weekend Movie Marathon: TV Show Reunion Movies, a review by addicted2dvd



The Dukes of Hazzard: Reunion!
In Reunion!, folks come home to Hazzard and discover a plot to turn Hazzard Swamp into a theme park...leaving the swamp critters high and dry. Before you can say wait a durn minute, the cousins are back in the General Lee, tearing up the roads to stop the nefarious scheme.

My Thoughts:
The Dukes of Hazzard has been a favorite of mine since my childhood! Good Ole Boys... General Lee... and of course Daisy Duke! What more could any all American Red-Blooded country boy ask for? It was so good to see so many of the original cast back for this reunion movie. Unfortunately Sorrel Brooks, who played Boss Hogg, passed away before the making of this movie. But they were sure to do right by his memory in this movie. Back in the '80s and '90s I was huge into Martial Arts movies... since then I have not watch many. But it was cool seeing Cynthia Rothrock... and her talented feet in this movie. Almost makes me want to go out and pick up some of her old martial arts movies. Whatever happen to her anyway?... I haven't seen or heard much of her for a long time now. Unfortuinately there is no extras what so ever on this disc.
